Photos of the Latest to Hit the Stores - Warrior 1 Hot Bra, Free Fall Crops, and New Colors of Old Favorites

New Free Fall Crops. They are made of luon and I'd guess most likely light luon. They look like a combo of last year's Vita crops and Here I Am crops, neither which were big sellers. They look comfy but no way I'd pay $86 for around-the-house-only pants.

Vita crop - made of organic cotton. Bought on markdown for $9.
Here I Am Crop - made of luon light - Bought on markdown for $24
New Warrior 1 Hot Bra. I like the double strap support. I might have to give this a try. It might not look very good under a CRB (too many lumps) but it might be good to layer under other tops. Although, calling it a hot yoga bra probably means it only goes to a ten.

Black Wee Stripe Power Y. I am going to have to try this on. I have a "thing" for black Power Ys. The Power Y is a staple of my summer around the house/around town wardrobe. I add a Flow Y or Energy bra underneath for the gym.

Yesterday's Shopping Trip

I visited a couple of my local stores yesterday to see if I could find the Surge Wee Stripe CRB but neither had it in yet. I did try on the Surge/Surge Wee Stripe Define yesterday. I really like the look of the wee stripe pattern in the symbol but I just don't care for Surge with my coloring. I think this will mean I will pass on the Surge Wee Stripe CRB, too. One odd thing about this jacket is that the material seemed super stretchy, almost like light luon. It was a noticeable difference from the Potion Purple Define I wore into the store. Sometimes some colors feel stretchier or thicker than others and this is one. It almost makes this Define a nice summer-weight Define.

I also tried on the Shape Me bra at the store. It wasn't as low cut as I thought it would be on me. It was very comfortable and gave me a nice shape. I don't think it was super supportive but much better than a Flow Y for me. I'd put the support probably around the same as a 50 Rep for larger busted ladies. I still prefer the look of the Energy bra in the back but this is a decent sports bra and seemed comfortable when I tried it layered under a Power Y. It comes with cups.

Potion - left, Dewberry - right

I deliberately wore my Potion Define to the store so I could compare it to Dewberry and the colors are nearly identical.  Contrary to the above photo, I thought Potion was the brighter purple and Dewberry a touch more muted, like it had a little black added to it. However, the lighting in the store is a bit odd.

I almost bought a Tango Red Power Y that was on the sale rack but decided I didn't like how Tango Red just plays up the pink undertones in my skin. The only thing I ended up buying yesterday was a pair of Technikini underwear. I hope some new tanks in new colors come out. My lulu ADD is kicking in.
