Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve
Very flattering, rides up all the time :(
I absolutely LOVE the look of these shirts, and ended up buying them in 3 colours. I like my tops looser and therefore always buy a size 6, but I fit in a size 4 as well. I bought two in a size 6 and one in a size 4 so that I could also have a tighter-fitting one. Although they look awesome when they are on, they (both sizes) ALWAYS, without fail, ride up to my belly button when I am running, playing squash, etc. When I am just walking around they also ride up a tad, though not as high as when I am doing cardio.
Pretty disappointing when I have to keep pulling the shirt down periodically throughout my run.

Very disappointed with this shirt. This is my time to buy a Swiftly Tech SS. It looked really good when I wore it for hiking. Unfortunately, at the end of the hike, the back of the shirt had pilling everywhere I had my camelback on. Too bad, I feel the quality is not good enough.

First, I have 4 of these shirts and have not had an issue with quality until my latest purchase. I wash them together, on hand wash cycle, hang dry. My second time wearing this shirt, I noticed a small hole. I went to my nearest lulu, that is an hour drive away, to be told these shirts are only insured if there is an issue with the seams. I'm sorry but activewear ((not inexpensive)) should last longer than 2 runs. After telling me they can't be sure what I was doing to damage the shirt, I was given an exchange. This is exactly why I find myself purchasing more Oiselle lately.

Great for everything!
I love the tank top version in this material. I thought the shirt was expensive sense there is no bra in it but liked the color of the navy/light blue so I broke down and bought it. I have to control myself from wearing it so much now. It is great for any workout (yoga, cardio, etc.). Even wearing it with jeans on the weekend. The thing I like about it the most is that it is really comfy and fits perfect for my body type (size 4).

I wish this was a nice clean bright white, instead it looks like a white I have washed many times... uggghhhh

I have a few of these shirts in short, long and tank sleeve styles. I've worn them skiing as a base layer, trekking through Nepal and climbing Mt. Whitney. However, I just put the shirt to the ultimate test.
When lulu made the shirt in the "fatigue green" color, I bought one immediately to wear under my camouflage military uniform. I have just returned from a 4 day field exercise. Every day I wore it under my uniform during the 10+ mile forced marches and land navigation exercises in 90 degree heat. It was soaking wet but dried quickly so that I was never cold once the sun went down. I took it off at night to let it air out and put it back on in the day (unwashed) to wick sweat and prevent chafing. I was so impressed that it never stunk and that it withstood such abuse.
I wish that black, fatigue green and coyote brown were standard colors for lulu so that us military guys and gals could always have lulu as an option for uniform wear. I was the only girl out there in the field and when the guys saw how my shirt performed, they were very interested themselves. I hope lulu branches away from yoga and running a little and thinks about military tactical gear too. I know that lulu would have a loyal and avid following if they did so.

This is a beautiful shirt. I got it in a pretty tealish blue color. I loved this shirt the first time I wore it. And then I washed it...the fabric immediately became thin in some areas and you could see through the shirt. Such a bummer, because this shirt had so much potential. I run often and need something that will be durable and last longer than one wash.

I own a few of these shirts and just noticed snags and pilling on one of my shirts while the other one seems fine. Ironically, I wear the other one more and it seems to be in better condition. I wash on delicate and hang dry. For the price, you'd expect higher quality. I'm taking it to a lulu store to see if they can help.

So I'm not sure if I'm just incredibly lucky or what, but I have yet to be disappointed with anything from lulu. I just bought this shirt about a week ago, and have put it through several crossfit sessions and two washes regular cycle with no issues at all. The fit is great, it doesn't ride up while doing burpees, but isn't tight. I'm currently buying a second one online, and looking into getting a longsleeve version.

Great for gym!
I haven't had a chance to run in this yet (due to the weather), but it is great for the gym. Comfortable, flattering, and moisture-wicking. Long enough that it doesn't ride up when doing overhead presses. I love it!
