Lululemon Swiftly Racerback Paisley - Heathered Angel Wing - So Pretty!!

I bought the Lululemon Swiftly Racerback Paisley in heathered angel wing since it is on sale now.  I actually wanted to get it when it first came out in full price.  But I held off because I figured I didn't need another white tank.  Angel Wing is a slightly off-white color, but being heathered and in the swiftly material, it might as well be white.  For the sale price of $34 though, I totally caved!  It's so pretty!  I received it last night and I gotta say... if I had tried it on when it was full price, I probably would have bought it right there and then.



I love the subtle paisley pattern in the tank!  I'm a sucker for subtle prints like this.  It's kind of like my white jacquard mesh cool racerback - I wish I had bought it in black too!

So I used to buy swiftly racerbacks in size 4, which is my normal Lulu size.  But the last few I bought, I bought a size up in 6.  I preferred the looser fit and I think it works well with this tank style.  But size 6 was sold out in this one so I had to buy it it in a 4 again.  I kind of think I like the fit of the 4 better now...??  Hahaha... I'm so indecisive!  I feel like this one stays down better, and you can see the top of my bra in the front.  The size 6 ones I have tend to cover the bra completely in the front after I move around for a while.  Or maybe it's just this particular tank, who knows.  It does seem to be longer than my other ones in both size 4 and 6 as well.  So, point is, I like this fit.  So I might have to try on both sizes before buying my next swiftly racerback.  









I can see this tank being used A LOT!  I don't even know why it is marked down since it's so pretty. But I highly recommend that you get one if they still have your size left!  It's a staple for sure, and the paisley pattern makes it a little more special.  It's a great price, and it will still go with everything!  I think the silverescent material might be my favorite to workout in.  It's so light and airy, and dries super fast.  Some people seem to have problems with swiftlies snagging, but I have so many of these in the tank version, short sleeve and long sleeve versions, and I have never gotten a single snag.  Love them!

  1. The tank is cute.

    Some of my swiftlys have snagged a lot so I have stopped buying them. I love them but I my last 2 had so many snags... I have some that are in perfect shape so it seems hit or miss.

    Oiselle has tops with similar material that are nice. Victoria's Secret Sport has a top that is similar-the material is thicker.

  4. The swiftly has been my #1 fave for a long time, but the ones put out this yr are different. They fall apart easy, sometimes after one wear. My old ones have held up perfectly. I won't buy any more until the quality improves.

    1. Wow really? I think I've bought 3 this year (not including this one) - very green, spry blue, and plum. All three are ok so far. Older ones are ok too. I have soooo much workout tanks though, I've probably only worn each one like 3 times... we'll see...
