LIGHT LUX RACERBACK TANK
Our classic Lux racerback tank is a running staple. A day-to-day basic. Or a sleep option. Because one touch of Light Lux is all that's needed; it's the fabric you'll want next to your skin for almost anything. The cut is traditional, but with ample room through the waist so that it doesn't feel clingy.
- Light Lux fabric (polyester / spandex)
- racerback tank silhouette
- 24.5" body length (size 4)
OMG I loooove this tank! I’ve been obsessed with lux since my first Oiselle top that I bought in the lux material, and this tank is no exception. I love the lighter weight material compared to the regular lux, especially with the heat and humidity where I live in the Caribbean.
I do feel like Oiselle sizing has changed, or at least these tanks fit smaller than my other Oiselle tanks from past seasons. I normally wear a size 10, but had to size up to a 12 for these ones.
For reference, I’m 5’6” and somewhere around 180lbs.
The fabric is amazingly soft and the fit is flattering and spot-on but why Oiselle uses hard stitches and seams makes no sense for true athletic apparel. Oiselle has the best fabrics and they are great for running and lifting in but the seams and the waistbands seem so cheap. These seams cause chafing and are uncomfortable for any activity over 30 min. For the price, I’d love to see seamless Luxe so that it performs as well as it looks.
I'm sad to say this was just too tight on me. I'm 5'4" and 145lbs. I have worn a size 8 top in the past with Oiselle, but ordered this expecting the same sort of fit and it's tight everywhere, esp the hips. Very disappointed as it's so tight, I don't think a size up would do well either. Love the fabric, but this was a no go for me.
This tank is everything I hoped it would be with its gorgeously soft fabric but it's very loose in the chest and armholes. Unfortunately, I realized this too late. I was hoping to use it for double duty: yoga and travel, but now I think it will just be used for running and yoga. Even for running and yoga, it's still baggy in the chest and armholes. I wear a 4 in other Oiselle tops, but this one was too loose. I'm a 32F bra size.
I almost never write reviews, but I'm OBSESSED with this shirt! It's so light and soft, almost as comfortable as running in a sports bra! I did notice some pilling after I wore it with my hydration vest on a trail run (just underneath where the waist strap sat). Other than that, I think this might be The Perfect Shirt. Also - bring back more colors of the bird print! I have the ivory/charcoal - it's so fun!
Absolutely love this fabric and fit! Please make more colors/prints!
I ordered this tank in the bird pattern a few weeks ago and love it. I was unsure of the cut around my chest at first, but it’s super comfy and perfect for warmer weather. I just snatched up another on on sale and can see myself ordering more.
I'm a birder, so naturally I got the bird print. This fabric is amazingly soft and it is a lovely, lightweight top. I wish all of my clothing felt like this!
