All Tied Up Tank
I loved the fit of this shirt, and thought it was going to be great for sweaty workouts (I.e. The only time I would want an open back workout shirt). However, it shows sweat! If you want a performance shirt, this is not it. If you're just looking for casual wear than this is great.

Very wrinkly, can't wash, not durable
I wanted to love this top - fit is beautiful, color of fabric is gorgeous. However, the fabric behaves like linen, not tencel. It wrinkles so bad that I was ironing it to be able to wear it out. After a few days of wear, I washed it....big mistake. The color was faded dull, it was misshapen and a bit smaller as well. HUGE surprise from this company as normally I can't find anything negative to say about lulu clothing

Versatile but not durable
This is a great top for every day and to-and-from the gym. The material is so soft and breathable, and I like that the neckline is so high. The key is to size DOWN. I will wear tops anywhere from a 4 to up to an 8 depending on the style, but I definitely am a 4 in this top. The only thing I'm REALLY concerned about is that if you tie it in the back, it can get stretched out really easily and lose its shape. Once it does it just looks weird. Otherwise wear it loose and pair it with a camp underneath, jumpsuit, or a cool bra with high waisted pants and it's a great top.

Very boxy fit
I really wanted to love this tank but it had such a boxy fit!

love this top
I LOVE this top and have it in blue and a light purplish/heathered grey! I Also have the clip-in tank which is similar and ties but i like that this slit is higher up in back so it will show a cute bra top. (i prefer the shape at the shoulders of the clip-in a bit better though)
I am not a fan of fitted tops that make me feel like a sausage, (as i am short in the torso with a booty) so this is a great alternative since i can make it loose in front (even when tied), but still show my shape in back
please, make it in black and white!

Love the loose style and fabric.
I usually take a 6 or 8 in most tops. And because I have a tummy, I usually go for tops that are loose fitting and so I took a size 8 in this top so that it wouldn't be tight. I'm 130 lbs. Besides being loose, I fell in love with the vitasea fabric. It is a bit thicker than the 105 Singlets and for that reason alone, I purchased the blue and white one. Please make more tops using the vitasea material and more looser fitting tops.

Perfect for Pregnancy :)
Super cute with the open back! I am currently 6 months pregnant and ordered my original size 6 as this top is loose. I like that I can size the back to fit my growing belly. I love the high neckline because I can continue to be active without the worry of my breast flashing everyone during workouts! I am 5'4, pregnant, & approx 145 lbs and a size 6 is perfect for me. :)

I think this shirt is so cute! Super soft and true to size. I just wish the neckline wasn't as constricting... Even if it had a higher scoop neck it would be more comfortable. But nevertheless I would buy more in different colors!

Super cute, comfy and versatile
I went into my store to return a few things ordered online, and decided to try on some new things while I was there. I already ordered the Spring Break Away Shorts in confetti dot online, but tried them on in store because they haven't arrived yet and I couldn't wait. I was having trouble finding a top to match and so I checked a lulu blog to see how they styled it, and it looked super cute with this top in purple (turns out the store mannequin had the same style too). I was a bit hesitant to buy this top bc it is a little different, but one of the educators was wearing it and it looked great. It is comfortable, can be worn several different ways, and I ended up tearing off the tags and putting it on as soon as I got home. I think most of the reviews must be for an old style here, because mine did not get wrinkly - even when I untied it later, the fabric still seemed smooth and unwrinkled where it had been knotted. It also seemed to fit TTS - I am 5'4 111 and the 4 fits great - because you can tie it, you can make it tighter or looser depending on yout preference.

Not fit for use
Unless you want to look like the old dish rag you find at the back of the cabinet under your sink, don't buy this shirt.
First of all, I am a huge fan of Lululemon and love their new trend of dual use clothing that I can wear out to a restaurant and also wear to yoga or hiking. That being said, I'm not sure what they were thinking with the fabric of this shirt. I wore it yesterday to go hiking and had to take it off after the drive to the trailhead because it was already too wrinkled from just sitting in the car for 30 minutes to look decent. I thought maybe I was just crazy- the reviews for this shirt are relatively good, but it appears that Lulu reissued this shirt with a different fabric (thereby completely changing the integrity of the shirt) and kept the same reviews. Deceptive? I think so
Additionally, the shirt is not fit for its intended use because of sizing. As many of the reviewers (on the new reissue) have warned, you need to size down unless you want to look like Mother Ginger- the top is very loose in your standard size. However, when you size down, you will most likely find that you can no longer actually tie the back of the shirt together, which is the whole point of the shirt. But that's fine because the minute you attempt to tie the shirt together, you will wrinkle the shirt beyond measure and be forced to remain tied back until you rewash and heavily starch the shirt, then douse it with Downey Wrinkle Releaser after you get out of the car so you don't look like that old rag.
The final issue is that the neck opening is too small. I had to shove my head through the top to get it through (I must be really smart if my head is that big) which wrinkled the area surrounding the neck and warranted an additional spray with Downey Wrinkle Releaser,
Don't buy this shirt- Mother Ginger/ old rag is not a flattering style. This shirt has all the bad qualities of linen without any of the good ones and now I've got a new $58 dish towel to clean the floors with. And shame on Lulu for deceptively reissuing this with the old reviews!
