Cool Racerback Discontinued?

July 27, 2016


With all the recent discussion on this topic, here's my opinion.  As a petite person the Cool Racerback was never perfect.  Yes I admit I own 8 of them but I have two major issues with these tanks.  My top gripe is how low cut the tanks are on me.  I would prefer a higher cut for more coverage.  I can basically only wear these tanks when I workout, where showing a sports bra underneath that would peak out is not a major issue.  I couldn't wear these tanks to work because my regular bra would be on full display.  Could I wear these out casually?  Maybe, but I don't think I would be fully comfortable with it.  My second issue which isn't as important since these can be hemmed, is the length is always way too long.  And because of this, only the heathered versions of the tank worked since the material is much softer, stretchier, thinner and slinkier I could get away with it bunched up a bit around my waist.

For us petites, a new version of the Cool Racerback with a shorter length would be fine.  I'm all for it.  The second change may be a more narrow racerback.  That doesn't bother me as much.  I realize that Lululemon can never satisfy everybody, unless they decide to come out with a petite section and a tall section I don't see how everyone will ever be happy with changes.  But in the end I'm always willing to give things a chance.  Until I have the new version in my hands I'm willing to keep an open mind.

What do you guys think?

  1. I dont wear crb much either. I prefer Chi tanks or Renew racerback from Athleta. Neckline is too low and length is too long for me. Size 4 is too tight on my abs and look fat and size 6 is too loose somehow.

    1. I tried on a 6 in CRBs too and they are just too big. The 4 can sometimes be tight but the heathered ones has more stretch. I can only really wear those in CRBs. Have you tried the heathered ones? I find they are more forgiving. I did get the daily hoodie in size 2. I really love the color. I'm a sucker for hoodies though.

  2. Did you get your on the daily hoodie?
    Size 4 went out while i was deciding. Color is so cute and tempted to buy but I got too much water gear from last WMTM. :(

  3. I love CRBs as they are so I would be sad if they discontinued it. I'm on the bustier/short side (34D, 5'3")and wear a 6 in CRBs. I find most other tanks sag around my middle. Curious to see what the replacement will be. Luckily I have a ridiculous amount of CRBs in rotation ��

    1. That's good, I'm sure people will start hoarding them after they discontinue! I've got enough for now. The only one I sort of regret not getting is the heathered forage teal color.

  4. Hey Petit Impact, did you see the pictures of the new CRB? I hate them! The racerback is angular and narrow. I have a long torso so I always go for long lengths and the current CRB is awesome. The new one is shorter.....not good! I will not be buying anymore CRBs after this change. Really bummed!

    1. I did see the photos... I have to wait and see it in person though before I totally decide if I like it or not. But my guess is I may not like the new version either... With the price increase if I don't absolutely love it, I won't be buying.
