Yay, finally giving my wallet a break! Going to return stuff I bought last week (except City Pants, loving them). But Power Tee I sized down a size and still just too big on me and felt like it moved around too much no matter what bra I tried. Too bad, because it's really cute otherwise. Meditation pullover was not a flattering cut on me at all. And mesh CRB and circle bra cut into my chest/shoulder area, so sending those back. Chaturanga purple tank was flattering but didn't like the straps across my shoulder blades. Guess I'm picky!Anyway, tonight I got one of the print swiftly LS and a yogi tee in concord grape. Really like the concord grape but not finding pieces I like in it. -v
i also got the new Wee are from space april multi CRB tank, Gather and Crow crop reversible(blk/purple) and Power dance tank in the rose quarz AND white/wee are from space april multi. I bought one of the power dance tanks a month ago and just love it. probably one of my Most comfortable tops.
A new "my wallet is safe" record for me. It's been 4 weeks since my last Lululemon purchase.
ordered concord swiftly tank & dune dance studio pants.
Flash SE sleeveless & april multi CRB for me. Contemplating the LS now, can't decide color. Might wait for new colors to come out.I am hoping they come out w/ the april multi in speed shorts, and the dune color in dance crops or or yoga camp crops.I'm a bit disappointed LL decided to release so many long-sleeve things this late in the season. I could have used pullovers and LS items during the winter time, especially in these fun colors instead of the sea of greys they unleashed on us.
Only the April we are from space crb, dune dsp and the flash amphipod for me.
I got the WAFS April and WAFS Coal/Fossil CRB's, the turbo shorts deep coal/April waist. WAFS black combo wunder Under Pant. When I first started looking into Lulu, I wasn't very interested in the WAFS. . . then I got a pair of WU crops in them and they became my FAVORITE pattern! I know many people have been waiting for the blues and greens to appear, but I have been waiting and waiting for all of these pinks and purples! Officially tapped out for a while!
I got the gather and crow crop in CG, have been eyeing these crops for a while and when they came thru in CG which I love I had to snap them up. And the deep breath bra too.I generally love the swiftly SS tops but I can't get past the special edition version looking like sweat patches instead of the mesh pattern, so gave a miss on those.Would love a CG swiftly headband so fingers crossed that is coming on one of the next uploads.
Oh! forgot to ask. I got these pig pink running tights from the orlando, florida outlet store. We were in a rush so I didn't try them on. They are SOOOOO comfy and I love them. . .but I don't know what color top to wear with them. When Paired with my usual black tops it looks like I'm not wearing pants LOL. Does anyone have these pants? What would you suggest wearing with them to avoid the running pantsless look?! Thanks!
I picked up another pair of my fav crop- Excel in WAFS Aprl, a rose quartz SE swiftly ( would prefer it without the SE design but don't know if that is in the cards), and Turbo run shorts in grape. For my niece's bday present I got her the Stride jacket in WAFS April.I am on the fence about the Rose Quartz CRB, I need to see it in person. I have a CRB in pink and online the colors look very similar.I have a new rule, i'm only allowed to buy a max. of 2 tops in any one color. So many cute tops, I'm looking for loppholes !
I too am returning the Power Class T. It just doesn't look right on me. Plus, I need to buy a cute bra to wear under it and that on top of $68 for the shirt is getting a bit pricey.
I ordered the same thing you did. :)
Wear gray with the pig pink! :)
I think a navy would be cute too maybe even a purple.
Just two items this week, phew...after a wallet busting last week! Got the Scoop Neck in WAFS April, my first Scoop since it was made longer. And a L/S SE Swiftly in Flash. I know, I know..Flash again, but Falsh in Swiftly is pretty and not too jarring, I hope! Wanted all three styles of Swiftly SE, but since they don't they make the Racerback in a 2, and I don't wear anything with sleeves for yoga, I went with the L/S, for before and after class. :)
I wanted to get the Deep Coal/WAFS Turbo shorts but they were only uploaded to the US site and not the Canadian... Boo. Hopefuly they get uploaded soon.
I went with the WAFS April crb, the white SS swiftly and a pirouette headband in white. I absolutely do not like spending my money on boring basics, but I really needed a white SS swiftly. I hesitated on the crb because the straps always seem long to me, I start my workout with good coverage but as I start moving a lot it seems the scoop, in the front starts to slip below my bra top :/OT: Last weeks online purchase consisted of the D crops in white denim, which are going back, they are a lot more grey than I had hoped for, but they do fit well and are cute. Also purchased the power class in purple, didn't size down, love it, too much $ for what it is, but keeping it, not wearing with a bra ( 34 A/B) pairing it with crops, earrings and wedge flip flops and pretending I might go somewhere with my Hubby. At the store last week I also purchased a SS special edition swiftly in flash, purple DS pants, pure balance in flash and some plain black WU crops...can't believe I have never invested in plain black WU's.And another OT issue, why in the world do we have so many swiftlys available in the same colors flash and concord in a tank, SS, LS and 1/2 zip?? Just asking. Not buying anymore, even though they are my favorite, simply because I cannot decide!!!! I guess I need less choices.
Bought the WAFS April CRB and the presence LONG SLEEVE- anxious to see it as I haven't heard anything about it! Like that it's sorta cropped! Meditate pullover looks like too much for my 5'2 frame. We'll see!!
I was at the store yesterday and tried on the SE swiftly long sleev e in flash and it was super pretty on. I passed on it cause I was wearing the paris pink one and my purse had snagged it on the side. I showed the salesgirl and she said that the swiftly are very delicate and not meant to be worn for casual wear. You should only wear it for running. Seriously? So I said if I wear it for running, I would have hydration belt on and wouldnt that cause more pilling/pulls than my purse? She said no, its only velcro. I would think velcro would cause even more damage? I was very annoyed cause i only wore the shirt 2 times. Sorry for the rant. I also saw the rose quartz crb in stores and it is very very pale pink. They also had the flash crb and its very soft.
Question for the ladies: I tried the deep breath bra and it fits great. But none of the tops (swifty, CRB) sit flat on the that bra. I am wondering how are you wearing your deep breath bras? All pictures I have seen are girls wearing the bra on its own but I do like to cover up.Thanks!Anu
Anon 7:36 I can sooooo relate! My most recent swiftly snagged at the gym after 1 wear. I have no idea what it even caught on I was doing a machine! Needless to say it is my final swiftly purchase ever. So, much of the upload was an easy pass. I did get the cinch dress in black. I ordered the one last week and it was mesh...I didn't want to like it, but I did when it arrived. Now I have to wait for this one to do a side-by-side comparison. No need for TWO $90 black tank dresses! Fairly certain the vitasea one will win, but I was warming up to the idea of the mesh with a cute bright sports bra underneath. Hmmm ... anyone want to help me decide?!
I was at the Boston Marathon yesterday and I did see people wear lulu. Mostly speed shorts. I noticed that one girl was wearing a gray crb with a hydration belt and in the back of her shirt, it was all pilled. There was another girl wearing the flash naked seam shorts and the flash on her waistband bled onto the rest of the short.
Pink punk is close to rose quartz! It looks cute with concord grape and also coal !
I'm finding everything pretty unappealing- but yet, I keep finding reasons to buy. I get bored with my clothes so easily. I did pick up DSP in Dune and a pair in deep coal ( great for asual work days)the WAFS April CRB, a daily tank in flash (I have no flash pieces and a gal in my class had a top on and it looked great). I'm worried about the strap/bleeding issue, but I'll try. I had to return my CRB in concord- it was running way small. I reordered in a size larger. I am loving my WU crops in the new multi waist band print. this is my first colored waist band pair and I'm hooked.Hope Lulu makes more. I also took a risk and ordered a black Pure Balance tank which I am sure will go back because I'm a 34D. Lastly, I picked up a couple new flow Y bras in the WAFS and white. Finger's crossed for some nice light /bright blues. I miss Angel Blue.
I didn't order anything from the upload, but yesterday at the Irvine store I picked up heathered Fossil WU crops-they are so soft I could not pass them up. I don't think I had seen any pictures of these WU crops before and then I started thinking- there have not been too many new WU crops loaded lately or Power Y's- Where are the power Y's???
I haven't ordered anything in two weeks :) Also, I was really pleased to find that although lulu says they don’t do price adjustments when I brought my receipt back for something that had been put into loot within the allotted 2 weeks they refunded me the difference and told me if I ever notice that happen again to come in with my receipt :)
At Cari, are the heathered WUs different than the SE WAFS Fossil WUs?
Same question here for @ Cari. I have the SE WU crop in WAFS coal fossil. Love it as it is super soft. When I leave the bottom un cuffed, it becomes a "perfect" WU pants, as the regular WU pants are always waayyy too long. I am 5'4".
At Anon 8:20,I bought those same shorts with the flash waistband and had to return them because they bled like crazy. I'm still waiting on my refund actually. It's interesting because I have a pair of dazzling speeds that I've never had a problem with.How embarrassing for Lulu though, really.
@ Anon 8:20amOh my!! Other folks may not see the pilling on the CRB (must have been bad for you to take notice) but the SE speeds.....people will notice the bleeding. Funny. That's why I don't wear my hydration packs with my lulu shirts and I don't buy flash items (unless they are heathered). Bc of these issues, I have severely cut my Lulu budget. I don't buy much anymore. I will buy a tank, here and there, when I love the color. Their products have some severe issues that need attention. Oh yeah, I bought a surge LS swiftly about 2 months ago off the website. It bled all over my cup inserts that I happened to wash that day. The inserts acted like color catchers!! Now my inserts are aqua in color....guess I can't wear them w/ my white tops. CRAZY. WTH.
Does anyone know how the Gather & Crow Crops fit? I love the CG reversible ones but am hesitant to purchase online! I've read through the reviews and they seem pretty mixed on whether they run TTS or slightly large (as compared to WU crops, etc.). Would love to know someone else's opinion on these before I purchase!
I don't know about the reversible Gather & Crow crops, but I have a regular pair, and they are very very similar in fit to my Groove crops.
@anon and yogibabe- the heathered fossil WU's I got yesterday are different from the WAFS fossil WU"s- they are simply a light heathered grey- I think they are the exact color in the waistband of the blurred blossom groove pants.
@CariThanks for clarifying. The fabric looks very similar to my Dhanurasana and Embrace crops, from the last year or so. It has a smooth, silky feeling to it. If that is so, hopefully we will see it online soon. I am actually hoping for new colors of the Ebb&Flow crop. I love all three of mine!
Darn!!! I wanted the Flash CRB SE in size 4. Now it's gone!!!
