OMFG - $78 for the new Challenge Tank????
Lululemon has updated the look of their website - I like it - and uploaded the new Challenge line. I had read it was pricey but almost spit out my coffee when I spotted the price. $78 for the tank!!! For that price the tank needs to make me look ten pounds thinner and ten years younger. The Challenge tank does look cute in some of the real life photos but on the web model it looks like some sort of alien hand is grabbing her chest. I dunno, maybe the new material is the best thing since sliced bread but I'm pretty happy with a lot of Lululemon's technical fabrics - circle mesh, light luon, silverscent, swiftly tech, running luon, and luxtreme not to mention good old luon - so I think any improvement in feel and function might be incremental and certainly not worth a 34% increase in price. I wonder if the material will be coming in any other color than black. I'm not really much for wearing the all-black ninja look. I do like the anti-stink angle but that isn't a major priority for me since I wash my clothes every one or two wearings. The only items I've had an issue with are the swiftly tech fabrics in a couple of colors and the circle mesh. Anyway, I am really curious to try this tank and the rest of the Challenge line on. If any of you have tried it, please give us your reviews.
Here is the Challenge webpage (under Silver Luon):
Also, the bottoms and the bra only go to a size 10 while the two tanks go to a 12. Booooo.
