Mindful Tank - Anyone Buy One?

Has anyone bought the Mindful Tank? There aren't any reviews of it on the Luluelmon website and I am curious to see what people say about it. I don't think this is in the stores since we haven't seen any Facebook photos of it and it hasn't shown up in any of my product alert emails. It's sold out in size 4 in a couple of colors but otherwise it's fully in-stock. If you've have it or tried it, feel free to post a review.

I bought this last week and it just arrived yesterday ... and it's going back today. The front pleated portion is so thick it's like wearing body armor. And the way that the pleated part is attached to the straps is done really poorly - the pleated part is wider than the strap where they connect and sticks out on the side in a strange way ... hard to describe and not noticeable in the online photos, but in real life the construction looks sloppy.

The length is on the shorter side, but I'm only 5'3" so it was plenty long on me.

It's too bad, because I like the wide, supportive straps, and the back was pretty cute. But overall I didn't care for it.

Looks matronly.

Does anyone know what pants she is wearing in this photo? Or at least the color? I see this color shown with a lot of tops and really like the look, but haven't figured out what they are. I don't have a local Lulu store anymore so I can't go in and browse.

I believe she is wearing the Static Charcoal Gather & Crow Crops. They have that offset seam on the thigh. I am wearing mine right now, I LOVE them. The colour is just as nice in real life AND I find they do not collect dog hair like my other Luon. They are a silkier, thinner material in the static charcoal. I actually purchased mine from "loot" just recently on the CDN side but I think they are sold out now.

I don't know about the gather & crow but I have the Insight tight in the static charcoal and agree with everything that the above anon. posted said about the luon used for this particular color. Also, they are as slimming/flattering in black while still being a nice change up from being black. :)

Saw a size 10 for $29 in my local store (maybe not selling well?)

I think they went on markdown because they changed the design slightly. The back slit on the leg used to have a drawstring, my understanding is that the new model is just open ( like to Boogie crops were ). You can buy the new version on line at full price but the old version was marked down. That was my understanding but I could be wrong~

Thanks for the info about the charcoal luon. I have been wanting the gather & crow in this color and only hesitated because I was afraid it would not be as slimming as black. The solid g&c disappeared from the US site. I was able to call and get them from the GEC but at full price. Oh well, I have been drooling over them for a while!

To be honest, I am completely unimpressed with this tank. It looks like it would provide nice support for a larger chest, but it looks so unflattering and, I like the way pilatesmom said it, "matronly." The chest of the tank looks almost as long as the body, if you get what I'm saying, so it really just looks weird and out of balance. I haven't tried it on or seen it in person, but it looks like a waste of time.

On a different note - I have static charcoal Wunder Unders. Static charcoal = MY FAVORITE. So silky soft!
