Fit Review: Lean In Tank, Lean In Crops, Lean In LS, Lean In Short Sleeve, New Swiftly’s

by Cristina

It’s a miracle I got this Fit Review in today folks, my camera battery was flashing red and almost completely drained!

Lean In Tank, Lean In Crops

I really didn’t like the look of the Lean In Tank hanging on the hanger, because it looked very cropped. When I tried it on I was really pleased with how feminine it is and not so boxy. Although I do still find it quite short, it’s flattering with a higher waisted legging. It’s also very cool and airy despite the fact that it’s a double layer tank. I would have considered this for purchase in another color but my store only had it in black and white. This is my TTS 10 and it’s roomy, but slightly cropped. The crops are cute as well and the perfect ‘cropped’ length for my short 5’4/short legs. If you are taller or longer limbed you may find these too cropped.

I liked the burn out mesh detail on these. I do worry about how delicate it is but it’s very pretty and soft. It’s a much nicer looking mesh than their overdone completely sheer mesh panels.

Lean In Short Sleeve

The short sleeve was the opposite for me from the tank. On the hangar I loved this one and was sure I would be walking out with it, especially since it comes in purple. When I tried it on I was so disappointed at how unflattering the cut of this oversized tee is on my proportions. This is very much the shape of a football tee, so you really need long limbs to pull this look off. If you are short like me it will totally overwhelm you. I liked that it was soft and airy, and I liked that the front was solid without burnout mesh but the rest of the sleeves and back was the burnout striped mesh pattern.  TTS 10 – but loose fitting.

Another one I wanted to love. This would be very cute over a white tank top. My only nit with it is the dropped sleeve. I’m not in need of a long sleeve going into summer, especially since I already got a Dark Grape UPF LS, but this is a nice option. Roomy TTS 10.

Sculpt Tank II Royal

I LOVED Royal in person so I came home with this Sculpt Tank. I actually preferred the look of the Swiftly SS in this color, but the Sculpt Tank is much cooler for warmer weather workouts. I’m looking forward to seeing more items in this color.

Swiftly Tech SS Royal

I made a mistake in picking these two swiftly items out. I normally size up in anything Swiftly and I accidentally grabbed my regular size, so I wasn’t happy about the fit around my middle, but I otherwise loved both of these. I may order the Swiftly SS in Royal when it uploads.

I believe this Swiftly Tech LS  is ‘Black/White Stripe’ but in person it has a touch of mauvy-pink undertones. It’s nice and soft but thicker than the solid color ones which I find softer, silkier and stretchier. I think most people prefer these thicker ones though.

While your page is loading, I can read your commentary. Once it has fully loaded, all of the text sits on top of itself and underneath the pics. So sad that I can’t read it! I’ve tried on multiple sizes of screens and multiple browsers.

Same here!

Ok, looks like commentary is 99% fixed. So sorry about that!!!!

Thank you!

Thanks for letting me know! I’m on it and trying to fix it. I think it may be the pinterest button thats causing the issue.

That royal sculpt tank is super flattering on you! Now I want to buy one for myself!

Mel May 9, 2017 - 7:37 pm

I’m liking Lean on tank , but why boring colors??

Yay to the Royal Blue Sculpt and crops but Nay to the rest. Those tops are too short, boxy and clingy. The tank is very pricey and I don’t care for the short length nor the long arm holes. The Royal Blue looks very nice on you and I am hoping to pick up a s/s Swiftly in that colour. I don’t think there will be anything else of interest in the drop as I am not liking the Lean In line. BTW I do really like the l/s black & white Swiftly on you and I too always size up in Swiftlies but I have to say this regular size looks good on you. I have been wearing my solid colour new Swiftlies and am liking the fabric more than I thought I would versus my thicker ones and am loving the dark forrest, so glad I got it.

Thanks! Yes the Lean In items are passes for me, but I think the tank is best out of all of them. I was actually hoping to see the new bra in today (sun setter?) but that wasn’t in. Thats something I’ll pick up in the upload. Thanks on the Swiftly feedback – TTS is ‘ok’ as long as I’m wearing high waisted tights, but I’d never wear it with any other bottoms so I prefer the versatility of sizing up so I don’t have to worry about muffin top too much. Dark forest swiftly is gorgeous!

Did you get the sculpt tank in your TTS? I see some reviewers saying they sized down so I’m not sure which to get! Never tried this style before. I usually get a 4 in CRBs/Swiftly tanks but size up to a 6 in Swiftly SS/LS.

lulumum May 9, 2017 - 9:37 pm

I did. I really don’t think I could Size down in it and have that loose fit around the middle.

Ella May 9, 2017 - 10:03 pm

Thanks for responding! I may have to order 2 sizes and return one – hate doing that, but the closest store is 45 mins away from me and I just can’t make it down there on a regular basis. Thanks for your fit reviews, Lulumum – always very helpful 🙂

lulumum May 9, 2017 - 10:29 pm

Thanks so much! If it helps, I’m pretty curvy so that probably contributes to this style being TTS for me. For someone less hippy or booby I can see the size down working better.

I just got the royal blue swiftly LS. I love it! I was debating on whether I should get a SS in the black and white stripe. I may end up getting it too.

BTW, I had to go into the store to make a quality promise exchange with my Fast & Free Crops (black) because after one wash, the seams and the band was coming undone. I was told that there was a bad batch and they have had to damage out a lot of them. I wanted to make everyone aware of the situation. I haven’t had any problems with my Fast & Free Tights in black cherry or teeny check.
