Dance Sweat Pant II - Looks Promising

Dance Sweat Pant II
The Dance Sweat Pant IIs look kind of promising from the photo in the Product Alert. They look kind of similar to my beloved but-only-for-around-the-house Feel Good pants but there is a cinch drawcord at the bottom hem. They look pretty cute in this real life photo:

But I don't care so much for how they look in these photos:

They look too long here and maybe a size too small. Will Lululemon stores hem the French Terry stuff, too? I've only gotten luon pants hemmed.

Dance Sweat Pants II Product Info:

  • Warm up before ballet or complete a calming hatha class in the low rise slouchy sweat pant
  • Our own blend of cotton french terry has stretch so it won't bag out!
  • Cinch the hem drawcord for adjustability
  • Front pockets to secure $ & keys
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance & comfort
  • Preshrunk so the look of this garment will stay as intended!
Tank on Me Organic Tank

Not a bad looking tank but very similar to others they made in the past. It also comes in Senorita Pink and Bold Blue. I bet the Bold Blue is really pretty.

Tank on Me Product Info:

  • A tight fitting, low support tank that will move with you during hatha class
  • Made with certified organic cotton and spandex - natural softness and stretch for shape retention
  • Mesh inserts allow for max breathability in high sweat areas
  • Interchangeable straps allow you to choose the right support level & customize the length
  • Mesh bra construction with built in pockets for removable cups
  • Preshrunk

Mini Rant Time - Where are the Tanks?
Why is Lululemon making/releasing everything but technical, non-organic, non-running line tanks? I'm hoping there is a big bubble in the pipeline and they are going to be releasing a ton of new tank designs and colors but I'm starting to think they won't be. Also, why are they making so many similar sweat pants?  The Flashback Pant and the Dance Sweatpant II are pretty similar, I don't get why they are releasing them at the same time. There are also the French terry Lulu pant II and lots of Feel Good pants in stock on the US side of Loot. That's a lot of French terry pants. I also consider French terry a more casual look than luon. I'm dying for some new technical, non-organic tanks. I would really like to see some new Deep Vs colors and prints come out.  I'm not the only one, there are quite a few people saying the same thing on the Facebook site. We want tanks in new colors and new prints. Has anyone tried Zobha? I'm seriously considering ordering from there to get something new.
