Lululemon Cross My Heart Tank in Silver Spoon

I went to return my online order this weekend at Lululemon, and quickly walked around to see if I wanted to exchange for anything instead.  I was with my husband, who was very impatient and did not want to spend more than 5 minutes at Lulu.  So with limited time, I decided to pick up the Cross My Heart tank in silver spoon without trying it on (I was also kind of oily having just had a massage).  I know this tank came out a while ago in different colors, and I did think it was a cute design but never was quite crazy about any of the colors it came in.  Silver spoon is fun and different, since I do not have any stripy tops.  Although I thought the pig pink one was very pretty too but I have enough pink tops (for now).  I think this main web picture is really pretty:


I posted a picture of myself in this tank in the last Sunday Funday post, but here it is again:



And here are the other web shots that are of much better quality and lighting than my iphone pics:





So I never realized that pretty much the whole entire back of this tank is made of circle mesh!  I like circle mesh because it is super lightweight and cool.  So I was excited to see that.  The rest of the tank is made of luon, but it feels more like luon light.  Actually I think it's even thinner than my Cool Racerbacks.  So that was also a pleasant surprise, as I find regular weight luon could be a little hot to workout in.  

This tank is very long and I think the cut is pretty flattering.  It is body skimming though, so it definitely will show lumps and bumps.  The inner bra is very similar to the older Deep V style, which means it shows a lot of cleavage, but makes your boobs look really good!  Especially when you put the cup inserts in, your boobs become really perky and cute!  Lol.  The outer layer that goes over the bra is rather low cut.  But contrary to some reviews of this tank I read online, I did not feel like my chest would fall out of it during any time of my exercise.  I think the ruffle trim on the straps are cute and not too girly or over-done.  I am not usually a fan of ruffles, but this I like.

Overall I really like this tank!  I am glad to have a different style as well, since I noticed that I really only have multiples of the same 5 or so tank styles that I rotate.  I guess when I like something I just buy it in different colors.  But it's always good to have some alternatives.  I may buy another one of these if I see it in a different color I like.  I'm just not that thrilled about the price point of $58.  I don't see why the additional ruffle details on this tank has to cost 6 bucks more than others.  Not happy when my after tax price goes over $60.  It's a psychological thing I guess!

  2. Cute tank and looks great on you :) I think lulu is upping a lot of their prices. Originally, the deep breath tank (I think you have the black/tinted canvas one) was $52, but this release it was $58! WTH?!? I could not justify that because I agree--it is tough to pay over $60 for a tank top I sweat in!

    1. Oh yeah, I don't buy tanks that used to be cheaper. Lol. Especially the deep breath tank that is exactly the same, why should I pay more? I guess eventually I have to come in turns with inflation... just not 6 bucks a year... hahaha

  3. I tried this top on and found that it showed way too much cleavage and boobage. Its not meant for the well endowed ladies, but it looks great on you!

    1. Hmm... I can see how this tank would show way too much if you have a lot of boobage! On me it is pretty much the same as a cool racerback. A lot of Lulu tanks (especially the ones meant for hot yoga) are not made for larger chested ladies, don't you think?

    2. yeah I agree. It just sucks when you want to do hot yoga and nearly half of their tanks dont work for you. Oh well more money saved I guess!

    1. Get it in silver spoon stripe and we can be twins! Hahaha... the circle mesh back is awesome for cooling! Pig is pretty cute as well. And we'll see what new colors it comes in. The new aquamarine color would look great!

    1. Yes I did stay true to size. It's body hugging but not tight. It's a cute style! I definitely would recommend trying it on at least.
