Really like this wrap in black! Not sure about the tanks here...will have to reserve my opinion until I see more pics of them or in person...
What colours does the wrap come in?
wrap comes in black and grey in the us. royalty has come to stores in canada.
fyi - I sized up in the weightless singlet. also I dont agree with the materinty comment as it is very on par with lululemons aim to create fashionable and functional pieces, as that flowy tank that is longer in the back is very popular at the moment, I have 3 different tops with that same shape - all purchased recently. (not to mention the swift is not very stretchy at all so it would be a terrible choice for someone who would like to wear it through pregnancy)
Why do you think it is maternity wear? Just because it is not tight in the stomach? I am sick of seeing tanks that are tight in the belly. I am looking forward to trying this on.
Yay! Got the wrap in black in the US today. Inner button takes care of the previous problem with the inner panel dropping, zipper takes care of any residual pouching in front and the back is a bit longer, similar to the Gratitude but without the drawstring.
Does anyone know how the Method Wrap runs?
@anon at 5:48.. that's pretty harsh... these girls aren't actual "models".. they just work at lulu.. sorry not everyone is a perfect 10..
Megan, please remember the manifesto states 'Communication is COMPLICATED. We are all raised in a different family with slightly different definitions of every word.' Maybe Anonymous was raised in household of similar super judgmental jackasses. Those ladies modeling are awesome to put themselves out there so we can see what the clothes look like on people other than the website models. She looks fabulous. And thanks LLA for posting the pics!
I had the same thought, but only because I have the same issue and I work out all the time. The excess fat in that area of my body doesn't budge, but I have a flat tummy (well....almost flat). So I don't mind the pics...this is real life. It's helpful to see how the tank fits someone with an average body, rather than the website models.
@Elle - That is quite possibly the most awesome response to an ugly comment I have ever read on this site. You rock.
Anon 5:48 - Whoa, easy there! I'm not sure which of these girls even has backfat to begin with, but that's a pretty harsh thing to say about someone's body. I don't understand why people feel the need to make demeaning comments about another woman's body (which I think is perfectly lovely, by the way!), but it's people like you who make women so self-conscious over their bodies. Imagine how hurt you would feel if someone said something so nasty to you, or to someone you love. The rest of us (who aren't all size 2's) like seeing how the tanks and clothing fit on a real body-type. I'm sad for you, both because you obviously have such a limited standard of beauty and that you don't have the decorum to keep your vile thoughts to yourself. Elle - well said, I couldn't agree more!-Jenn
A lot of people will appreciate that the clothes were modeled by somebody bigger than a size 4 or 6. Isn't that what everybody is asking for, to have different sized models wearing the clothes. Anon 548, yeah I don't see any back fat, you are delusional. You must be a smoking size 2 with no fat whatsoever in your body.
I think all the models look great, some of them are too skinny (maybe anorexic). But for the most part, all the educators look happy and healthy and make LL look great!I got the Method wrap in black today and the new Deep Breath tank in Dewberry. The wrap runs large, so go down a size. I tried on the Bulerias tank and that ran large too.
Wow - if you are going to make a disgusting, hurtful and mean spirited comment like that, at least don't be a coward and post anonymously.
@Karlee You're right about billowy tops being in right now, but personally, I don't see the functionality in having a billowy, maternity-looking top during a yoga class. Maybe for the gym where you're completely upright the entire time. But saying that it doesn't look like maternity wear because it's "in style" isn't accurate. It DOES look like you could wear it when pregnant because it is billowy and would allow for a bump (which is great for pregnant women im sure), and some people just don't want that look in the gym, especially when they've been working their butts off. Lululemon can also make stylish tops that aren't so huge around the mid-section, so I don't know why that would limit them to making only these maternity-looking tops. People just want to see something DIFFERENT again! So much billow! :)
In response to this comment: "Why do the always have the 'bigger' girls modeling these clothes? Their back fat is disgusting!"I don't think her 'bigger' girls comment is warranted. These girls are normal girls wearing the clothes, so that's great for all of us to see here on this site. Which I love by the way - it's so helpful in deducing which items are keepers :) HOWEVER. My biggest pet peeve is when I see an educator or anyone in general in any kind of top wearing the WRONG. SIZE. I think we all can agree that sometimes a person modeling can size up, but that does not mean they are an overweight person. Still, I don't think the comment should have been made at all. Just keep in mind you just always need to try the item on for youself. You can't completely rely on photos of other people.
@ anon. it is a run piece, it was not designed to be worn for yoga. It is a great option to the run swiftly tech tops that fit very snuggly. Personally, I would much rather hit the trails in the summer in something loose and flowy! I bought it. there is not alot of stretch to it at all so all I am saying is I would not recommend it to a pregnant women/
@Kaylee.I see what you mean, but lots of people wear lulu's running designs (flowy or not) during yoga class. I don't like the billowy stuff for myself during class, but that's just my personal opinion obviously. But yeah for running I can imagine them being nice and cool :) I did say they'd work for when you're upright the whole time...
sorry @KaRlee! :) haha I have a friend named Kaylee
Ladies, peace. We are all beautiful: size 2 or 12. – it does not matter. As the Italian men say “every woman is Madonna.” I am grateful to all volunteers who submit their pic’s to this blog. This helps directionally. Fit is an individual thing. You do not know until you see in person or try on.
@anon 1:13 yep! exactly.
I'd have to agree with LLA that the Run:Weightless Singlet looks like maternity wear especially in that yellow color shown in the pic! Pass!
Sorry it took me so long to delete the troll comments. FWIW, I see no appreciable back fat in any of these photos. I think it's helpful to see how real women's bodies will look in the clothes. Some styles looks better than others depending on a person's build. That's why I try to put a variety of builds on the blog so a wide variety of women can be helped. Gosh knows why some people who have nothing good to say chime in.
