NEW! Special Edition Swiftly LS and SS

Aren't these pretty? New special edition (same price as regular for a change, too) Swiftly long sleeve and short sleeve tops. Both versions come in Concord Grape and Flash. Love these! (Thanks to Anna for the top photos)

I need these in my life! Love!

I have a love/hate relationship with my swiftlys. They are my absolute fave for running but snag horribly!! Every single one. I hand wash and baby them and they're still falling apart. Frustrating!

I want to love it, too, but somehow it just looks splotchy to me. I'm itching to get my hands on the jacquard lace CRBs that Australia got. Why haven't those shown up in NA yet?!?!?!

I think this is beautiful but I showed my husband and he said it looks like a tablecloth.....now I can't get that out of my head! :(

Looks like sweat blotches to me

Are these available in the US?

Exactly looks like sweat blotches or something went terribly wrong in the wash:(

Too harsh. I love it! Would get the flash version if I hadn't just bought the flash v-neck swiftly

I really love this - but I think I want her body more than the top. She looks amazing! I'm inspired :)

love the concord color but not a fan of the pattern either. Wish it was a solid. Oh well.

I think it's kind of cool. Hadn't ordered my swiftlys yet, because I couldn't decide between Flash or concord/SS v's or 1/2 zips. Maybe I'll hold off a little longer and see if these come available online.

But I agree with everyones assessment of this model...she looks fabulous. She makes everything look good! If she modeled on the Lulu website, I'd be in trouble.

Has anyone tried on the run wild jacket? Or at least tried it on ! It's priced high but it looks cool!!!!! I love the concord grape!

I have a question... i only own one swiftly tank so far in what i think its my regular size, 8. I never tried the 6, but i thought the 8 fit me fine... after looking at so many pictures of them, i notice how fitting the girls wear them. Is that how everyone wears them?? MIne fits loose around my mid section which i like since i have a belly :) But i do notice the front is a bit low and i can see the top of my sports bra. Eventhough across my chest its not loose (I'm a 34DD). Just wondering if its fitting too big... i ordered 8's in the v-neck in flash... and i have two long sleeve swiftlys coming to me from a purchase i made through the Luluexchange Board in 8's.

I wear mine more fitted because I like shirts to be tight on my body espicially when I'm running. I am 5'7" 130 lbs 34C and I wear a 6. The 4 makes the sleeves sit weird on me. If you're a 34DD a 6 might be a little tight across the chest/shoulders.... But I don't find mine being low in the front or my bra showing.

Anon-6:49. Stay tuned for a run wild review. Mine is coming tomorrow:) I already know I paid too much, so if I do not absolutely love it...it has to back.

I guess I'm in the minority but I absolutely love this and will definitely be buying the flash one. Especially because there's no price hike...thank you lulu! I can support that! ;-) Have they been spotted in stores yet?!

Hi! I bought the wild 1/2 zip in the flash/white. I like the fit...but am on the fence on the style. I believe it runs tts. Really like the zippers for pockets rather than the kangaroo open pockets that I have from last year. It's expensive, so I might return it if I'm not 100%.

Anonymous said...

Speaking of fragile fabrics, have others had bad luck with the slub denim catching on everything and getting snags? I'm leaning toward returning my white slub Recognitions if this is the case. Thanks.

I wear my swiftlys loose-TTS. I like they way they look like that. I don't think it is ment to be a fitted shirt.

Thanks Focus for your response! The more I look at it the cooler it looks.... It's a pretty concept but just the price! Ahhhh bad lulu!

Anonymous said...

this shirt is like a magic eye puzzle. i'll see the lace and love it but them it does morph into sweat stains. i'm pretty sure i'll buy it though:) I LOVE FLASH!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Absolutely LOVE this in the LS concord! As for fit, my swiftlies fit like the model's. Not skin-tight, but not loose anywhere either.

For the fabric to do it's job at wicking sweat away from the body, the fabric needs to be touching your skin. So to me there is no point in wearing a sweat wicking shirt loose. I wear mine body skimming (not loose, not tight).

Anonymous said...

I'm usually a 4 in all things lulu, but I size up in my swiftlies. I find the 6 to be more comfortable and flattering while still being great at wicking away sweat. Also, my true size (4) tends to ride up since the hemline is slightly tighter than the rest of the shirt. I see way too many girls who wear swiftlies in a size too tight and the view is not pretty from the back - this fabric is not very forgiving to sports bra/back fat.

Thanks everyone! I received my v-neck swiftly today in an 8 and it actually fits a bit snugger than my swiftly racerback! I think i will be sizing down for the racerback from now on... is it common that they would run different?
@Anon-6:45: That totally makes sense! thank you!

These photos are from the Los Gatos showroom in California.

I don't have slub denim but Deep Indigo denim and I made 4 pulls in my left leg from my watch and wedding ring. So yes, that fabric catches easily.

The SE swiftlys look like someone who has been sweating at the gym to me... Snarky, I know :p Sorry!

But I agree with a poster above -- if the woman in the SS Flash Swiftly ever started modeling for the website, I'd want to order everything too, even if I knew it wouldn't look that good on me :)

Thanks, Lulu Addict. That decides it for me. The white slub denim Recognitions must go back. I can't be babying my exercise clothing.
