Like I said, the solid colored very violet one is very pretty too. But I think I will wait for that color to come out in another top. I'm kind of tired of purply colors anyway, and I just realized I don't have any coal tops! The girl that helped me at the store also said that a lot of their new items are coming out in persimmon, so I'll be more trendy lol. I really love this persimmon color. It reminds me of a softer version of electric orange. It's more peachy too. Very pretty. The persimmon lines on the chest of the coal top somehow add at least a full cup size visually! That's always a good thing for me nowadays - I used to be a C cup when I had more weight on me, but when I lost lots of body fat, my boobs went as well!
Oh yeah, I had to size up in this tank. I originally tried my normal size 4, but the chest was too tight on top and created the double boobage look. Not cute. And I'm like an A cup! I think I have broader shoulders though so that could also be why. The size 6 had a slightly bigger cup so it wasn't cutting in on top of my chest, and just looked much better. The bra band of this top is the thin kind though, so it wasn't digging in on either size. The tummy area is looser with the 6 but I still don't see the ruching as obviously as the model above - she must've sized up 2 sizes to accommodate her chest size! Size 4 was pretty figure hugging and you can't really see the ruching at all while wearing it. I also like how the criss cross straps on the back can be adjusted to your preferred length.
It's made of luxtreme, and the length is slightly shorter than most of my other Lululemon tops. But I wouldn't say it's short. I actually think it's the perfect length for me. Maybe the band of my Groove pants will actually show when I'm wearing this tank! It also comes with the cup cookies in the tank, so that is always a plus. I know you can always ask for them, but I forget to most of the time until I get home. I feel like those things really enhance the shape and size of the chest. Plus I'm always self-conscious about my nipples showing through tanks while working out so I always wear these things! Though that's probably because me and my boyfriend always giggle when we spot headlights! I know, we are very immature.
