I've always been someone who can appreciate versatile clothing. Whether it's a classic cardigan, boyfriend-fit denim jacket or a pair of trousers that can go seamlessly from day to night, clothes that can be transitioned through occasions and seasons become fast favourites in my closet.
The one item of clothing I keep reaching for despite purchasing it more than a year ago? My Lululemon Back In Action Long Sleeve Shirt. For a shirt that is considered a staple piece, I think the small details make it feel special, from the boat neck to the slightly cocooned fit.
Whether you're practicing your sun salutations, walking the dog or heading to brunch, this shirt is the perfect piece on its own or layered.
Designed for those on the move with a relaxed fit, the Back In Action Long Sleeve shirt comes in two different fabric options: sweat-wicking nulu and soft, pima cotton. Nulu fabric is more conducive to activities where you'll be working up a sweat but feels just as luxurious and lightweight as the original cotton option.
Designed to be a closet staple, this long-sleeve shirt has a scooped back for extra coverage in a flattering drape. With four-way stretch, it promises the same flexibility and shape retention Lululemon is known for.
I first heard of the Lululemon Back In Action shirt in the changing room at my gym. After eavesdropping on the rave review, I quickly typed in the name of product and did a bit of my own "research." It wasn't long until I was clicking the "add to bag" button and impatiently awaiting my new purchase.
I'll admit I was initially skeptical of the reviews, wondering how a long-sleeve shirt could be so "life changing." Today, I'm eating my words as I admire the colours I've not purchased... yet.
It was love at first sight with this shirt. Whether I'm going to yoga or meeting a friend for coffee, this shirt is elevated thanks to its incredibly light fabric and flattering boat neck. Plus, the paper-thin material makes it perfect for tucking into high-waist pants or layering under a shacket.
While the fit is certainly generous, I'd recommend taking your usual size for a drapey, loose look or sizing down one size for a more fitted, tailored appeal.
Effortlessly chic, the fit of this shirt is flattering and provides enough coverage to be worn with leggings. After trying on the first shirt, I quickly added a white and copper shade to my cart. I was converted. Now, I talk about this shirt nonstop, encouraging friends that they also need this versatile tee.
What other people are saying
It's clear I'm a major fan of the Back In Action Long Sleeve Shirt, but this is also a popular item on the Lululemon site with almost 1,400 reviews applauding the versatility, fit and comfort of the shirt.
"I did not think I was going to like this shirt as much as I did. I got a smaller size than usual and it fits so well, maybe the sleeves are a bit tight. Fabric is amazingly soft. Cut is very comfortable but still cute," says one fan.
"Great shirt! Long enough to cover your behind if you're just wearing leggings. The neckline is so cute so it makes you feel a little more polished than just your average long sleeve shirt," raves another.
It turns out I'm not the only one purchasing multiple colours and styles of this shirt.
"I have one in every colour, but I wear the black the most, so I ordered a back up. I can dress these up and down, and they always retain their shape, colour and look flattering," reads one review.
"Love this top! I probably own this shirt in 10 different colours and I love the fit, the feel, the way it washes, etc. This is my favourite 'go-to' long sleeve shirt," adds another.
Roomy enough to suit your every-day activities, this long-sleeve shirt is a Lululemon favourite for good reason. It's easy to see why it's so loved with its flattering neckline, relaxed fit and extra length. Whether you're looking to buy a new workout top or need a classic shirt for layering in the colder months, the Lululemon Back In Action Long Sleeve Shirt will not disappoint.
You can customize your fit based on the end result you're seeking, either choosing your usual size for a roomy fit or sizing down for a more fitted look.
