The Chase Me Tank is hitting stores. I am very curious to try this on to see if I'd like it for running.

Has anyone seen these new Grooves in their store? The ATX store acted clueless when I asked them about these pants. Thanks!

I went to my local store (in MA) 2 days after they sent the product notification email and they were down to about one pair in each size, and even none left in some sizes. I went specifically for them, but after trying them on I realized the horizontal space dye in the light color did not flatter at all!

Yes, I have found that the product notification can be sent to me on Wednesday but the stores have had the items for a few days. In some cases a coveted item will be gone before the notice comes out!

I have the chase me tank and it rides up when I did body combat/ kickboxing. Might be ok for running. Also had to pull it down a few times in yoga. I like the style and fit so I just deal with it.

Hi addicts, am hoping to get your thoughts on the Swiftly tees. After years, finally purchased the lavender dusk last week but am hesitant about keeping it based on how delicate it seems and reviews that talk about how easily it snags. I am concerned because I teach a lot of outdoor boot camps and don't want to have to be worried about my clothing snagging on a wooden bench or about abrasion from backpacks, especially when leading a group. That might be more work and care than I am willing to go through for workout attire. Would really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

I love my swiftlys but wouldnt wear them where I was concerned about snagging. I wear them in the gym or trail runs, but not if I'm going to be up and down off the ground outside or using benches, trees, etc...They definitely snag easy.

I like the chase me tank. So far, great for running. Only downside for me is...I am short, so the extra flap at the bottom makes it look reallllly long on me...so I just tuck the extra flap under and cinch the drawcord a bit...and that seems to work :)

Love the Dazzling Open Your Heart tank I bought today so freakin' much! I even like the long length, it's going to be great with my grey ebb and flow crop.

I bought the space dye grooves a few days ago and returned them today. I noticed, without trying them on, that they looked big when I held them up, and they were. I would suggest to size down and if you are between sizes for sure get the smaller size. I might repurchase them...but I just wasn't feelin' it.

As far as the Swiftly's being "delicate". I find the lighter colors more so than the darker colors for some reason, but either way I'd never wear them for any kind of rugged training.

Anonymous 3:33....I would probably opt to wear something sturdier in your situation, too. I like my Swiftly shirts, but I am sort of paranoid about them snagging, too.

Thank you so much folks for your thoughts about the Swiftlys! Very helpful and it's nice to have some confirmation about my concerns for outdoor use. You're a great group; I appreciate your advice.

Love my swiftlies, but I echo all the sentiments above, in regards to the delicate nature of these tees. Be very wary of chipped fingernails too. Sounds stupid, but I once snagged my ls swiftly big time on a chipped fingernail that wasn't filed becaused it chipped when I was out for a run! Sheesh.....

I would totally love those Embrace crops if the black and gray were reversed... to avoid the ever dreaded sweat show through...

Ooh, hmm, interesting info about the Chase Me tank :( Mine is coming on Thursday and I didn't even THINK about the possible ride-up factor! Drats!

The chase me is really cute though. I'm not a crb fan since it seems blah after you have so many. This is gurly (ish). I wore mine again and all this problems ate livable. When we are in a cardio class we do move quite a bit and lots of tops will need readjusting. I like the straps. It echoes the trim on the chase me crops. I took mine back to a store but changed my mind since all the girls there wanted it. So I ended up keeping it happily. I have a black one. It looks good as a top with skirt and jean crops.

Regarding swiftlys, the hem on mine unraveled but they are older.

Swiftlys are no friends with backpacks or any other thing constantly rubbing against its delicate material.

And come to think about it, yes, light colours seem to snag more easily than dark ones, or at least the snags are more visible.
I absolutely love my Swiftlys but would also never wear them for any training that implies a lot of body contact against rough surfaces.

HI
does anyone know it the open your heart tank runs big or small? I am between a 4 and a 6. Wear 6 in CRB and bought the ebb and flow tank in 6 as well but have the dance flowing top in a 4. I have a little bit of a muffin top so I am wondering if I should go 4 or 6?

Hi Anonymous 4:27!
I tried the Open Your Heart Tank in store, and I would definitely go for the 6. I'm a 6 in the Power Y, and a 4 in CRBS, so I thought I would try the 4 in the new tank. It was definitely way too tight in the chest area, and did not feel as comfortable as the 6.

I hope I helped!

I just bought the Open Your Heart tank in Dazzling. I am usually a 6 in CRBs, Power Y, No Limit, Cross your heart and any other tank most of the time. I am a 4 in the Flow N Go tank.

The OYH tank size 6 fit much better in the chest but was way too long and loose in the ab area and I have a long torso and am 5'6". After much deliberation I opted to get the 4. It's a little bit tight at the chest but not uncomfortable and the straps are adjustable. I just worried that with the 6, there was too much material to bunch up and it was unflattering just hanging there.

For the record, I am a smaller 34C or larger 34B.

The girl on the right in the pic is what the 6 looked like on me, the girl on the left is like the 4 on me.

I'd size down if you're in between sizes..
