Persistance Tank - What Makes This Worth 58?

Here is the new Persistance Tank in Antidote. I can't decide if I like it from the photo, I'll have to try it on but I'm 80% sure my verdict is going to be 'meh', especially at full price. It's made of luxtreme in the top and circlemesh on this bottom which will make it a very breathable, cool feeling top. What I don't get is why this costs $58 since it isn't made of the more technical silverescent fabric, has rather simple construction, and doesn't even have a built in bra. I also think the zigzag stitching around the neckline and armholes looks rather cheap. Granted I did pay $58 for my new No Limit Tank but that was basically a Flow Y bra with an attached tank made of circlemesh. It also had a unique very fashion-forward design whereas this tank is rather mundane looking. Is Lululemon trying to ease us into $58 being the new price point? A top has to be very special for me to go there on a regular basis.

Product Features:
  • Ideal shelfless tank to wear over your full support bra of choice
  • Adjustable strap width for customizable coverage
  • Made of circle mesh with anti-stink and wicking properties
  • 4-way stretch Luxtreme® provides added support to bust
  • Body-skimming torso with longer length hem
  • Hem drawcord to prevent the top from riding up
