We left the shelf bra out of the equation to practice the power of choice and made the body out of luon light fabric with four-way stretch to move with us as we charge through our workouts. The long length means we can focus on our back bends and burpees without tugging at our clothes.
wear with your bra of choice or our Flow Y Bra for invisible bra straps
racerback straps allow freedom of movement
luon light fabric is soft to the touch and breathable
four-way stretch means this tank moves everywhere you do
chafe-resistant flat seams help keep sweaty skin from getting irritated
hip length helps this tank stay put and is great for layering
Great fitting top but too long
This top fits beautifully and feels great on. I have it in black and don't have issues with it being too thin or see through at all. I do think it was way too long originally. I'm 5'2", 118 and 32D. The size 4 fit perfectly otherwise, but I had to have it hemmed at store. They must have cut 4 to 5 inches for it not to cover my speed shorts entirely. Other than that, it really is a nice top.

I must say, I feel compelled to review this item. I teach yoga and have purchased many, many cool racerbacks in the past 2-3 years. I recently bought 2 without trying on (I know my size in thes-bought yellow and black) and am pretty disappointed. The fabric is thinner, sheer, the straps are thinner. The black top doesn't reverse (i have an older black cool racerback) The new tops don't even compare to the older ones I have. I didn't mind paying the money for Lulu clothes before, because I knew they would last, but the quality of the clothes is noticeably different now. I'm just glad I have my "vintage" lululemon because my favorites (cool racerbacks and wunder unders) just aren't the same...

Made in Canada = Better Quality!
I was thrilled to receive the new power purple CRB and see that it is Made in Canada! Not only that, but the Luon Light feels a bit thicker than normal (a good thing, in my book!). I'm 5'8''/155 lbs and the size 10 fit is JUST right - snug on my 36DD chest, fits slightly loose through the midsection, hits mid-seat. Love the fit, love the fabric (not see through at all!), love the color, and love that it's made in North America! Hope to see more of this quality from Lululemon - it's a nice change from the thinner, sheer Luon light I've seen of late on other tanks and other colors in the CRB.

Love all around
I have this tank in black, white and bleached coral. I'm 5"7, 155 lbs, 36D and purchased the 10 althought I fitted in the 8 but much tigheter in the chest area. Love layering or wearing alone with legging or casual pants.

Classic layering piece
I love the CRB and think it's a classic layering piece. I appreciate that the stores provide complimentary hemming since it's too long for me. (I am only 5'3" and 110.)
I do go down a size in the CRB since I rarely wear it on its own. (The 2 fits perfectly.)

I scored an XL version of this racerback in store and I love it with leggings. Easily dressed up or down and long enough to wear without jeans out and still feel dressed. I wore it running and it was a little bit too much fabric for personal preference for that activity but I'm looking forward to wearing it in the summer time for casual activities. I hope they bring them back!

Great workout staple
I recently received my Power Purple CRB in the mail and must say the colors is so pretty, much more saturated than it appears online. Also impressed to see this one was made in Canada!
I own 6 of these now because I love the longer length, the stretchy material, moisture wicking and breathability of it.
I am 34C 5'4" 107lbs and go for the size 4, but had to get the size 2 in Bleached coral because I took too long to order it online. It still fits since it's so stretchy, but beware the tighter it is the more see-thru it will get. I also wish these were a bit thicker, my Aquamarine feels soo thin like it will wear thru at any moment!
My fave color is Raspberry Glo, wish I bought 2.
Anyway I will continue to buy these since you can never have too many work out tanks, plus they are so pretty and basic you can wear them day to day as well.

I absolutely love this tank! I am 5'1 and a 34C so the lulu tanks that have built in shelf bras usually suffocate me and are quite tight around the bust. I loved this tank because of the lack of the shelf bra so I was able to wear my own bra and also because it's comfortable and I can barely feel it. I wear it everywhere and it is one of my wardrobe staples, the length makes it absolutely perfect for layering, especially over leggings. One of my favourite tank tops! Oh, and I wear a size 4

Ive been wearing lululemon for years, since it was only available in small yoga shops, which was pre outsourcing to china. I have noticed the change in quality over the years but i still purchased some of my favourite items. I usually stick to items like the racerback because its a staple and I have found that its usually pretty good, unlike some of their more 'trendy' items. Today I received this item in aquamarine the mail with frayed stitching, a stain on the front and very thin fabric. Compared to the 5 other racerbacks I own, the fabric is noticeably thinner. Anyways,Ii do love lululemon but its very disappointing when you order a staple item and it to, turns out to be less than stellar.

love them but....
First off I'd like to say that I absolutely love CRB's and own probably 15 of them and that is why I give 5 stars. They and the speed shorts are my 'go to' item each day for the gym. I love how the tank fits snug, fitted and is long too. I notice that they can be on the thin side but it is not a problem for me usually. I got the new green and white stripe in the mail today for mothers day and the color is so pretty. It is a bright green just like the model that is wearing it. My issue is that the white stripes are completely see through. I can see my belly button through it and the green shorts where the tank overlays on it. I have a plain white tank and it is not see through unless I have a bright colored bra on. This one though is so see through and I am almost a bit uncomfortable wearing it. There isn't much left to the imagination if you know what I mean. I guess the upside is the green stripe is on the chest. :) I noticed a previous reviewer had commented that hers was made in Canada and thicker but this one is made in Cambodia. The speed shorts I got to match are the same green and while beautiful, they are so see through. They are the 4 way stretch and not stiff like some which is great, but why must everyone clearly be able to see the liner?? I love lulu but I almost feel ashamed I paid 102.00 for a tank and shorts that are obviously cheaply made....
