Lululemon Run: Swiftly LS White - Love!!!

I bought the white long sleeve swiftly online and received it in the mail today.  Omg I freaking love it!!!  I wasn't too sure about it when I bought it because I tend to shy away from white tops.  I just have trouble keeping white sleeves white.  I used to have a white Energy pullover, but I sold it.  I only bought the white swiftly because I just couldn't resist.  I love that if I wear any bright colored cool racerbacks or bras under it, it shows through.

Here I am wearing the electric orange cool racerback underneath (Whiskey is really an attention whore and wants to be in every single picture, hehe):



I don't know why electric orange looks pink in this picture.  I can never capture the color right on photos.  It's probably my lighting.  Oh well.  But the top also looks great with any other color under - red, blue, purple, etc.  You could also only wear a bra under, the tummy part is not that see-through, but  you can see the waist band of the pants through though.  

Here's the web model wearing it with only a white bra under, and black pants.  It's not bad, just a little boring for my taste.





So I made the order through my phone and I coulda swore I ordered a size 6.  I normally wear these tops in a 4, but I wanted to size up since it is white and I don't want it to be too tight.  But somehow I guess I actually did order this one in a 4.  It's not bad though, actually a little stretchier than some of my other swiftlys.  So I am going to keep the 4.  

This is actually only my 2nd long sleeve swiftly top (most of my swiftly tops are short sleeve).  I used to have a silver one (my very first one) that I ended up selling.  So the only one I have besides this one is my haze one.  I actually find long sleeve swiftly tops really good for outdoor running for the weather here.  It never gets that cold during the winter, so I prefer these lighter tops.  I wore my haze one to a few races during the winter already, like in Oct/Nov and once I warm up a little it is the perfect weight.  Sometimes I even wear it to the gym over a tank to lift weights and take it off after a while.  Glad to have another pretty swiftly that I can layer over all my tanks!!!

  1. That's a great combo! I have so many swiftlys. Wearing one right now. I almost bought the white, but thought it would be too see through. Now I am intrigued and may go try on in the store. Thanks for the review!

    1. Definitely give it a try! You can see from my photo that the color does show through, but seeing how bright electric orange is peaking out from the bottom, it shows through pretty muted. So the white swiftly is really not THAT see-thru.

  2. Wow - I liked the white but not as much as other colours since I love to run in bright colours - but it looks fantastic with a bright tank under, great idea! I think it would look cute with a swiftly ss or other tech tee on over it too. Very sporty looking :)

  3. White looks better on you than in the website photos!!
    Please do keep your model-Whiskey for future photos... I think he's a good compliment to Lulus, plus we'd like to see how he progresses. :)

    1. Haha thanks! I feel like he looks so much bigger in this photo than in person. Maybe because he was sitting closer to the mirror. He is about 8 months old now - don't think he will grow much bigger.

  4. I completely agree, the white long sleeve swiftly looks better on you than on the website. I bought the Lululemon Run: Distance Pullover Pigment Blue online and the black ebb & flow crop. You were so excited by the crop that I finally buy one to test ;)
    your back is better?

  5. I also ordered this white Swiftly last Tuesday but I have not received yet. Like you, I wasn't sure about the white top but now that I saw it on you, layered on top of a bright CRB, I think I'll want to keep mine too. I actually do like see-through tops for layering, most are very light weight and breathable.

    As for Whiskey, this is my favourite pic of him so far! How do you get him to actually look in the mirror, instead of facing you? Mine usually sits facing me, so he can look up at me. Maybe posing in front of a mirror just comes naturally to Whiskey lol
    After a while, dogs do start acting like their master!

    1. Lol he actually always sits on my foot with his back against my leg. And he likes to look at himself in the mirror too. How vain!! LOL!

      Hope you like the white swiftly when you get it!

  9. Did it ever snag? How is the quality? I want one SOOO bad but I saw some with HUGE snags on display at Lululemon.

    1. You know, I must say that I've been buying swiftly tanks/shirts/long sleeves for about 5 years now, and not a single one has ever had even the slightest snag. I keep hearing from different people of their snags and I don't get it! I don't baby mine at all, so I don't know what's up with that. Even my very first swiftly shirt from years ago is in pristine condition.
