Lululemon Let It Loose Tank

I bought the Lululemon Let It Loose Tank - in Pink Mist of course!  Though it looks very similar to the No Limit tank which I have 3 of, I just couldn't pass up this tank with the sheer luon outer layer material in pink mist.  That's like combining two of my great loves.  I really think that sheer luon is my favorite material from Lululemon.  I love how soft and wicking it is.  I normally only wear my luxtreme tanks for running or a boot camp type of workout.  Otherwise I just really prefer more earthy material.

Oh yeah, this tank came with the bra cups already in, so that's great that I don't have to chase them down.  But why does Lululemon keep sending me bags when I always check "no bag"??  I have so many of those bags that I take back to the store about once a year to recycle.  But I don't want to be reminded of how much money I spend there!

The tank looks white in my photo, so here are the stock photos - I took screen shots with my iPhone so ignore the bar on top and bottom!

So the bra is luon, and it is almost exactly the same as a Flow Y bra, except for the triangular opening at the back.  But it fits identical to a Flow Y.  I find this top to fit similar to the No Limit as well, but a little bit looser in the body.  The bottom band is noticeably looser as well.  And of course there are little details in the front with the key hole and pleats on this top.  Here are some detailed pictures I took:

So I tried out this tank tonight in my yoga class.  I thought that it might slip during inversions because the band on the bottom is on the loose side.  But it actually didn't move at all which was very surprising.  My No Limit tanks usually require some adjusting from time to time.  So maybe the band on this tank is just the right tightness!  This tank was very comfortable and the material is lovely.  Once again I am obsessed with sheer luon.  It's funny that during my downward dogs, I could look down the keyhole opening on the front and see my bra and stomach through it!  

So as much as I loved this tank, I would probably not buy another unless the color is great.  That's just because I already have 3 No Limit tanks and they are very similar looking.  But if I didn't, I probably would feel tempted to pick up another Let it Loose tank.  However, I am still on the lookout for more sheer luon tanks. 

On a side note, after my workout, I went to this restaurant called Veggie Grill that's in the same shopping center as the gym.  I always passed by it but never stopped in before tonight.  It's a vegan restaurant and I'm not a vegan or even a vegetarian, so it never really had much appeal to me before.  But I have heard good things about the restaurant, like the Tone It Up blog I read sometimes, those girls love this place and write about it all the time.  So I gave it a try tonight and I had the most amazing kale salad with tempeh!  I have an unnatural obsession with kale, I just can't get enough of it.  I guess that's not a bad thing since kale is very nutritious.  But it's not usually found at many restaurants here, except it seem to be abundant at vegan restaurants.  I used to pick up a party size tray of kale salad from another vegan restaurant just so I could have some with dinner every night!  I should do that again!  I wonder if Veggie Grill does that.  I took a picture of my kale salad... yuuummmmyyyy!!!


  1. The tank looks really nice on you.

    Have you ever made Kale Chips? I have read that they are really tasty. I am thinking about trying to make some this weekend.

  2. I love Let it Loose Tanks but I have not bought them yet. Price tag is bit high for me and I already have 3 No Limit Tanks and 3 Pure Focus tanks. Did you get your usual size? Recently I found out I can wear size 4, 6 and 8. 8 is a bit loose in the body but I can still wear them without any problems. I can also wear size 4 without stretching out the material. I usually wear size 6 because it is more comfortable.

  3. @Becky: I've never had kale chips! But that sounds good! If you make them, let me know how it goes! I'd love to try it too so recipe please! =)

    @Anon: I did go with my usual size for this tank. I don't think you *need* the tank with 3 other No Limit tanks, but I justified it anyways. Hehe. You could always sell one of the No Limits!
