Core Kicker Tank
Why Not So Tight in the Core?!?
The girls have good support. The fabric wicks sweat pretty well. The straps in the back don't bother me too much. Why o why does the tank not grip my body from the core down?!? That's even where I am trying to lose weight so there should be no reason why it doesn't fit tightly. I'm bummed out because I got this for yoga classes in which we do a lot of inversions. I had to hold the bottom of this tank in place while in shoulder stand. Boo. :-(
For reference: I am 134lbs, 5' 8", 36A and the usual size 10 fit fine on top, but I needed a size 8 after the bra area

Excellent quality, support and cut
This tank is reminiscent of "old school" lulu. The fabric is buttery soft, the cut is genius, the support is wonderful, and it stays in place during yoga. In fact, this is my only top that doesn't come up (down?) over my face during inversions. Even with a cinched bottom, many lulu tops still come off of my relatively wide hips.
Sizing: I am 105lbs, 4'11", muscular hourglass, 32B, and I wear a size 2 in all tops. Some of Lulu's size 2 tops are on the loose side for me. I can't go to Ivivva sizing because I got dem lady curves. This top in a 2 fits me better than any top I own! It's flattering to my shape and skims my body. If you're between sizes, I recommend sizing up. Yes there is some potential for back fat spillage, but if you're muscular and wear a supportive tank, it just happens. My straps were sooo tight at first, but I pulled them apart a few times and now they're great.

I love this top. I have the pale grey one and it matches everything! This top is the perfect mix, enough coverage to make you feel good and enough detailing to make you feel sexy.
I am lean with a muscular build and I had to size up.

I love the look of this tank. The back is my favorite. The support is good for light days. It is kind of cut a little low so depending on your activity, it may not work. I love the longer length. I wish it was a little more fitted right at the bottom of the hem. It is very comfortable.

my favorite top
I absolutely love this top, including the classic, dancer-like design of the front (similar to a leotard), the degree of support (which is excellent), and the open, criss-cross back. I am 5'4", 125 pounds, 34B, and the size 8 fits me well. I use this top for Pilates and spinning, and I've received lots of compliments on it. I have it in the deep purple color, which I like, but I would order multiple tops like this if it came in more colors - especially lighter colors (white, blue, pink, pale gray). Lulumon designers, are you listening?

I love this tank. I just wish they had it in more colors. I have both colors and want more. It fits like a glove and holds my 34Ds in nicely. Please Lulu make this in more colors! I order a size 8 to ensure it is a little lose in the midsection. I am 5'4 and 135lbs.

Love This Tank
Just tried on my new Core Kicker Tank, and was a bit wary about spending $58 for a tank with shelf bra, but Target doesn't carry these any more. I'm a 69-year-old trying to get my old body back by doing Pilates twice a week, Zumba twice a week, and walking 2 miles daily. I'm 5'3", a size 8 on the bottom and a size 12 on top, so I was hoping that this top would fit. It DOES! I love it. I may order it in another color, and wish you would add more. I have the "Cadet Blue," which looks more like a very dark purple (aubergine). I'd love one in turquoise, or even dark grey.

Flattering and functional
The Core Kicker Tank is beautiful and provides excellent support. I bought it in grey and pink. The material is thick, stretchy and holds its shape wash after wash. The fit creates a flattering feminine hourglass shape, and the ruching in the chest area not only looks great but also helps the tank defy gravity when I'm in a plank or doing pushups. The back design is gorgeous (and initially drew me to this tank), but it also keeps you cool during a sweaty workout. Lulu, please make more colors!

love this tank!
After reading all of the reviews, I am happy that I purchased a size 6! I am 5'1" 129lbs, 32DD. I have been running into the problem of "too tight top, too loose bottom" for a while, but not with this tank! Support is great, even in spinning class. I'm not sure if I would go running in this tank, but it definitely does hold the girls down nicely. Would definitely recommend. I would love to buy another, please make more colors!

My new favorite
I love the fit of this tank and I love the flattering ruching in the front. It manages to be very supportive, without squeezing the life out of me. I wear it to work out in, and it feels great while doing box jumps, running and jumping rope. I'm a 34 C and I usually wear a size 4 but sized up to a 6 with this tank.
