Race Me Short Sleeve
was amazing, until it fell apart in the wash
I bought this top when it first came out -- and LOVED it -- it was soft, breathable, comfortable -- but after the 5th or 6th wash this week, I noticed holes in the front of the shirt :( this is so strange, seeing as I wash all of my workout gear together and put sports bras in mesh washing bags, so there wasn't anything the top could have gotten hung on. I'm still going to wear this to work out in, but seriously? I have run swiftly tops from 2009 that look like they are brand new. I just don't understand Lulu's quality inconsistency these days!

love this shirt
I can usually wear a 4 in shirts but got a 6 in this due to tightness in sleeve area. The 6 is perfect for me- Very comfortable and roomy!

Love my new running top
Love this top! I purchased it when it went on sale and was nervous. I'm picky about my running tops (I like them roomy, not skin tight, but slimming), but this was perfect. In regular clothing I wear XS-S and 25-26 (5'1", ~110#). I bought a size 6 (final sale) because I would rather have something too big. I think the size is perfect for how I like my tops to fit. I ran 7 miles in it as a test run, and no chafing!

I'd been eyeing these for awhile but couldn't really justify the $68 price tag. When a few colors went on WMTM I jumped on it. They fit great, not too loose or too tight and are perfect for running. I wear a 6 in the Swiftlys but sized down to a 4 in these. For reference, I'm 5'7", 118lbs, 34A. Thought I got a great deal at $49 until I saw them in the store on sale for $39. They should be the same price online as in the store!

Really like, wanted to love
Since fall is upon us and the air will be cooling off soon I wanted to pick up a few t-shirts for my outdoor runs. I chose this one because of the fabric - it is soft and lightweight and doesn't seem like it will snag like some of the other options. (Although, as another reviewer pointed out, there weren't very many options as far as t-shirts go.) I also like the detail on the top of the sleeves. It is sporty but still feminine.
After wearing it a couple of days just around the house and to run errands, I'm not sure I'll be able to wear it to run in. The seam in the arm pit region rubs just enough to be annoying. It does seem to loosen up a bit after a couple of hours of wear, but I'm a bit worried about how it will perform while sweating. I also noticed that the scoop neck has lost its shape after a couple of hours of wear as well.
Overall, though, I do really like this shirt. The fit is TTS and very flattering. I had two c-sections in less than 18 months and still have a bit of saggy skin around my stomach so I don't like anything too tight anymore. This is semi-fitted in the upper body and slightly loose in the lower body so that it hides the parts I'm uncomfortable with. I bought this in a size 8, which is my usual size, and think it's perfect. For reference I am 5'2", 135 pounds and wear a 36D.

I really love this shirt. The fit is awesome. I'm a busty 36D and a size 6 fits great. I love that it hits me at my hip bone. Bought the Raspberry Glo color and everyone can find me. This is perfect as I am a group leader for our marathon group. Also, the material feels like a light, soft t-shirt material. It is so comfy, I can probably sleep in it!

Wonderful top for long run days!!
I recently bought this top in the plum colour in size 6 (my usual size). Fits comfortably roomy, which is a nice change from the rest of my body hugging lulu running tops. Although this is a looser fit it is very flattering!! Lovely cut and cute colour.
The first time I wore this top was on a 15km run through hilly Point Pleasant Park in Halifax. Paired with my Run Inspire crops I was so comfortable and cool. This top wicked the sweat away. My only issue was that the top seemed baggier at the end of my run from sweating, but regained its shape after washing. Maybe if the fabric was just a touch thicker it would maintain its shape throughout an intense workout, just a suggestion :)
Love this top! I will order this top in long sleeve too if it comes out in a scoop neck (not a fan of v necks for running) :)

Flattering Run Shirt
I just received my Angel Wing Race Me Short Sleeve. It is so beautiful! The Silverscent is so comfortable and the satin-like trim on the shoulders is a nice touch without being too over the top for a run shirt.
I was having a hard time figuring out what size to order because it seems to fit each online model a little differently--which makes sense because we all have different bodies. I really wish lulu would list what size the models are wearing (I thought I remembered that it's always a 6 but I'm not sure that's right?) and/or the model's measurements as it would help me determine how that would correlate for my size. Anyway, I took a chance and went with the lower of my in-between sizes which is a 4. It fit but I could feel the seems under my armpit and I figured that was a quick way to waste $70 (after tax) because I would never reach for it in my closet. I'm sending it back and I already re-ordered a 6. For reference I'm 5'6", 124#, 36B/34 C, lean on top but I have broad shoulders. I usually order size 6 so my sizing advice would be TTS. It does not cling anywhere in the torso really; kinda just skims the chest and drapes nicely over the belly.
The price is a little daunting. I do feel these shirts would sell a lot better if they were just slightly better priced but that's lulu for you. If swiftly shirts don't work for you then you might want to try this shirt.

LOVE!!!!! this top!
I bought this one in store in black as they were out of my regular size in the charcoal/ split pea combo I was after. I hesitated on size as I'm definitely used to a more fitted run/ everyday shirt and due to the stretch and generous cut I *could * have moved down to a 4 for a closer fit, but I opted for the roomier 6.
After wearing this top in the blazing sun for 5 hours at an outdoor event I promptly ordered another online when I returned home. This top is oh-so-light, while providing great coverage and an awesome length to wear with leggings. The detailing is subtle but takes it a notch above your typical workout shirt, lending itself to a great everyday top as well.
A pleasant surprize-Highly recommended!!

More crewnecks please!
I feel like lulu has come out with 50 million tanks and jackets this past year with very few T's. I was happy to see a crewneck tee in a technical fabric! The fit is a loose TTS. Very comfortable borrowed-from-the-boys style. If lulu would've made this a bit more girly I would've given it 5 stars.
