New Items Seen in Product Alerts - Inner Strength Tank & Exhale Jacket


Stellar Tank (An Older Style)
Hmmm, the Inner Strength Tank is intriguing. It looks similar to the older Stellar Tank that was out a couple of years ago. However, the product information makes it sound a lot like the All Out tank - luon straps, luon light on body and adjustable bra. I can't see any place to adjust it on the outside. It's a nice enough looking tank but I am amassing a rather large collection of racerback style tanks. I definitely want to try it on but I'm not excited about the colors it comes in.  Lululemon needs to add more colors to its seasonal palette.

Inner Strength Product Information:

  • Let your inner strength shine through in this long, tight fitting, moderate support tank!
  • Made with luon straps for support and luon light on the body for breathability
  • Adjustable bra construction to customize the fit depending on it's function
  • Carved racer back shape allows full range of movement
  • Mesh bra construction with built in pockets for removable cups 
  • Black, White, Tang Light, Lagoon, Senorita Pink

 Exhale Jacket

There was a quickie review of this jacket on Lululemon's Facebook page.  It's hard to tell from this page but the Exhale is a cropped hoodie.  It's kind of cute looking but I don't know how the mesh base covered with french terry will work out.

Exhale Jacket Product Info:

  • Check out the hood on this jacket - wear it up for warmth, down for basic or flip the hood out and show the cool liner for fun
  • Breathable mesh layer against your body, and soft cotton shell over top
  • Our own blend of cotton french terry is oh so comfy & breathable
  • Inner mesh pocket to keep your card, key or cash in a safe place
  • Added thumbholes for keeping sleeves in place
  • Chafe resistant flat seams for comfort
  • Preshrunk so there are no surprises when you wash me and zipper won't buckle!
  • Black, Lagoon, Heathered Clarity Grey/Senorita Pink, Classic Sport Grey/Sidewalk

I think the exhale jacket looks super cute. I hope it comes online.

I love the idea of a cropped jacket...especially for us people who found most lulu jackets too long....but how big is that hood...seriously, does it need to be that big?

I saw the inner strength tank in the store today. Nothing too special to look at but the luon light seems like it would be nice and cool. The inner bra adjustment is on the underbust elastic and it is on the inside. Just like the one that is on the outside on that one tanks (I think it is the all-out tank?). The big check leader of the track jacket that was $128 was marked down to $79 and I bought it at that price because I've always liked it but not for nearly $130.

@ Anon 1:41 pm - I can't really link to the FB review. You'll have to scroll the comments on the wall.

@Pilatesmom - Did you try on the Inner Strength? I imagine those big plastic hooks would dig into me from the inside of the tank as I bent over my bike in spin class. Did they all have the teeny stripe print on the straps?
