Work It Out Tank
Great top but....
I have this top in two colors--the orange, which was a gift and the mint which I picked up on sale just this past weekend. Unfortunately for me, when I saw the green on the rack in my size I bought it without trying it on and totally missed that it didn't have the removable cups. :( Not sure why they were missing on this top, but present on the other top. Kind of makes me sad, because I thought by buying a second I wouldn't have to wash as much, but I'm stuck rinsing out the padding.

This is my first lulu top and I love it. I have a long torso and have trouble with length, so I was worried with the no return thing. However, it looked so cute and the price was good, so I ordered it. It is so flattering, and I got a lot of compliments on it. It isn't supportive enough for running or Zumba, but great for yoga or barre3. I love the higher hip cut, with the longer length in both front and back. I wear a 38c and got the 12, which fits great.

cute but not so good for hot yoga
I bought this because it was on sale. The straps are nice and thick and the coverage is great: no girls popping out during cobras. However, in hot yoga or yoga class in general this tank doesn't really move with your body. It is pretty stiff and gets a little uncomfortable when you twist your body in all sorts of directions. Won't be wearing this to class anymore, but maybe around town.

straps too big
I had to go a size up from a 6 to an 8 and everythig is great except for the straps!! is there a way to get the tailored? I had to keep tugging at them my entire workout

Love this tank
I bought it in the store and tried on my normal size 6 and an 8. I'm 5'5 and 128lbs. I bought the 8 since I don't like my gym clothes really tight. The 6 felt like it dug a little under the armpit area. This tank is very slimming and I wish I got it in more colors!!

Pretty good tank but could be better
I bought this when it went on sale. I don't have too much experience with Lulu tanks, I've only tried on some other styles in stores but this was my first purchase.
I'm petite (5'1" 100 lbs, 34A) and got a size 4 in the mint green stripes color. The tanks fit well but the straps could be better. I feel like the straps are a little long for my body but maybe my torso is on the shorter size. I do like the built-in shelf bra and it's enough support for me. I've washed it a few times already and it seems like it's holding up ok despite frequent complaints of declining quality--perhaps that's more pronounced in their sheer pants.
Although I like this tank, I probably wouldn't buy an additional one because of the straps.

Non-adjustable straps cause spillage
I love the stripes and the structure of this top and bought it after reading the reviews and going up a size. I normally wear a 6 (34D, 138 lbs, 5'3"), but I ordered an 8. Fits fine except those straps are too loose. I wonder if I can get them altered. I was constantly pulling the front of my top up in yoga class.I love the old Run Catch Me tanks because you can adjust the straps. I think if you are 5'5" or taller, this will work for you without having to alter it.

caution when ordering
I ordered this top in the purple & yellow. I am a consistent size 4 but should have ordered up a size. It is very tight & constricting. I wish LuLu would be more consistent with sizing! The yellow definitely shows more & needs cups or a sports bra underneath. I offered them to my daughter but she felt they were also too tight to be comfortable during a workout or yoga class.

So cute, so flattering!
I bought this in the orange stripe and I loved it so much I bought it in the mint/black stripe! I got so many compliments on both of these tops at the gym. I like how the straps are supportive for cardio classes (wouldn't wear it on a run though) and I like the fit of built in bra. I went up a size because of my chest size(36D) and I'm glad I did. I like the seams and the pattern - both really flattering. I feel really cute and comfortable in these tops! I like that the fit isn't super tight around the tummy either. They are great moisture wicking tops. The didn't come with the cups but I called GEC and they sent some right away.

Wasn't keen on this one but I've been converted
I picked this up on sale from the website in the wmtm area. When I first received it I wasn't really sold on it. For reference, I am 5'6", a bottom-heavy 160lbs with a 36C chest. I usually take a size 8 in LLL tanks and a 10 in bottoms.
I had tried this top on in my local LLL many weeks prior to actually buying it and wasn't particularly sold on it for the price. I sized up to a 10 because I found the built-in bra's chest strap to be too confining in the 8. For my chest size this seemed to be more of a low coverage top (definitely wouldn't be able to do my Ashtanga Yoga practice in it without the girls flying out to neckline), and in the size 10, the torso was also a bit looser than I like in a yoga top . It would not have stayed in place but instead "flipped up" in any bent over/inverted postures. The shelf bra is just that - a shelf bra. If your girls aren't at all perky, and mine aren't, you're going to end up with uni-boob. Even the removable cups aren't going to prevent your girls from getting squished together, they'll just give you the illusion of shape.
When the top went on sale I thought, what the heck, and went for it anyway. I really do like the design and the material. At first I was hesitant about the straps as they aren't at all padded and seem "sharp" due to the fabric their made of, but after wearing this top for numerous workout's now I've concluded that they stay put and don't at all dig in. I really like the hemline - as someone with broader hips, the curvature that brings the hem up, over the low hip area but curves low front and back has a LOT of appeal and looks great. The fabric is soft, I haven't had any issues with chaffing. And as an added bonus, my husband loves the way I look in this one :)
Although I can't wear this to Yoga, this one is great for brisk walks with the dogs, hiking and elliptical workouts. I wouldn't jog with this - the support and coverage just aren't enough - but I'm okay with that.
