Triumph Tote, Store Trip Report, A Couple of Reviews

Photo of the new Magnum Nesting Blackbird print Triumph Tote. It is $118.

I went to the store today to see what was new and tried on the Turbo tank. As I thought, I didn't like it on me. The mid-section was loose but kind of snug on my hips so it made the cutouts gap more. The tank is also super long, like the Circuit tank. I liked the sexy look of the bandeau bra but I'm just not comfortable exposing my midsection. I didn't think this tank was very supportive for busty women. I also don't care for the gathered neckline -I thought it was a cheap look. This was an easy pass for me. Other than that, my store didn't have anything else I wanted or haven't already bought.

I wore my Heathered Pigeon luxtreme CRB around today. I like the color and material a lot but am not sure that I like the fit of a luxtreme CRB. Luxtreme is slippery so it tends to slide up, on me anyway. I got creases above my boobs, like the girl does on her left side in this photo, and I had to keep yanking my shirt down. The luxtreme also shows sweat pretty easily, even in this light color. Its not like I'll be selling this tank or anything but I won't be getting another luxtreme CRB.

A friend recently picked up a white Fresh Manifesto LS for me that was on a smokin' markdown at her store and I wore it for the first time yesterday. This is a super thin tank but it's great to throw over a Power Y or another tank when the air is a bit too cold to go without. It's totally see through. I like it a lot but I've read they are super delicate and there is no way I'd buy one for $68. However, if it's on a nice markdown, I'd get another one just to have as a nice cover up.

Photos of the Run For Your Life and Silver Bullet Tanks

The Run for Your Life tank is also arriving in stores. It's underwhelming me on these girls. I'd like to see it maybe a size down on them and also on a bustier woman.

More photos of the Silver Bullet tank. The material is not luxtreme, it's the same silverescent knit that is used in the new Run For Your Life tank. The feather print on the front is reflective.

Updated - A couple more Run For Your Life Photos - I like it cinched up. I can't wait to hear some fit reviews:

I like how exposed the back is - that helps keep me cool in spin class.

Today's Upload - A Surprise

There was a surprise tank in today's upload, the Run For Your Life Tank. From the look of it, I thought it was all Luxtreme until I read the details. The bra is luxtreme but the body is knitted silverescent. This isn't the same knit that is used in the women's Swiftly Tech tops but the type that is used in the men's line like in the Tempo Tech. My husband has a couple of shirts made of this material and it's very silky feeling. I ordered my regular tank size in the Royalty and I am hoping the shoulder straps won't slip down. I am thinking that because the straps are part of a bra and just not pure straps that I should be ok. I'd probably layer another bra like the Energy underneath anyway.  I should get it by next Wednesday at the latest but if it shows up at my local stores over the weekend, I'll probably go try it out. The tank looks a bit shapeless on the model but I am a bit more busty than the model so I think it will be cute. I am looking forward to getting it.

What did you order today?

Photos of New Arrivals - Starburst Grooves are back, Snowy Owl Speed Shorts, and More

The starburst (I'm sorry I can't remember the official name) pattern Grooves are back with a bunch of neutral black and gray patterns. I love this! I'm going to have to try these on when they hit my store.

New Snowy Owl print Speed Short. I wonder if they look better in person because they look like snake-skin in this photo.

A nice clear photo of the Dewberry Spray Dye Speed Skirt. This is super cute.
