Loving My New Run: Energy Pullover

My new black Run: Energy Pullover arrived today. I am totally loving it. I am glad I got the black. For once, Lululemon didn't add any neon or crazy prints to a running top so it doesn't scream athletic wear.  I also love that there are no horizontal stripes across the boobs like in the Hills pullover. I really like the front zippers in the Hills and Energy pullovers. Just the thing to help cool me off once I start sweating. I just love running luon, it's so soft yet lightweight and warm. The fit is pretty similar to the Hills pullovers, maybe a little looser in the upper chest and shoulders. I really can't tell since fit seems to depend on the color. For instance, the white Energy I tried on this weekend seemed a bit looser than the black that arrived today. And the Fruity Tootie Hills Pullover ran a lot bigger than the Pow Pink I tried on weeks ago. However, running luon really seems to loosen up with wear. I hope Lululemon comes out with lots of longsleeve tops in this fabric. I would love to see more pullovers in solids and neutral colors like coal and silver. I wouldn't mind some more mellow pastel colors like crystal pink, too. I'm hoping there will be one more release of running pullovers. According to my picture files the first bunch of Hills pullovers came out around early February so hopefully there'll be some one more shipment. I hope this isn't it. These tops are almost sold out on the website.
