Hi! I got the Menthol Tame Me and the Porcelaine Tame Me. Initially I wasn't excited about blues and greens but these colors look really good on my skin!! - That zipped top pictured here is very cute, unfortunately I can envision arm chub for me in it!
Oh - I THOUGHT about the blue/green wee excel crop, but the waist looks so low, I didn't know if it would feel TOO low so I passed. I like a full coverage waist. . . you know tummy hider! Any thoughts on excel crops would be appreciated =D
The Excel crops are REALLY low. I'm only 5'2" and they were a good 2" below my belly button. Also, they are crazy tight in the waist...probably due to the low rise...so I sized up from a size 2, to a size 4.
Was really hoping for the Porcelaine Wunder Unders and the Menthol Power Y...so i'm pretty bummed:(
Dune Studio Crops...that's it.
Not much excited me tonight. I got the Tame Me Tank in blush quartz and porceliane.And the zippy tank in porcelaine but now that I just saw the post of the Chaturanga is porcelaine, I must have it ! It's my fav tank of all time.
tame me tank in menthol
I'm thinking of getting the Run Inspire Crop II but I mostly do yoga... Are the run crops okay to use for yoga? Getting mixed reviews on the site. :(
So happy they came out with the menthol/porc. Wee space excel crops! I was hoping they would!!! Bought those and the porcelain crb... Already have the menthol to match the crops now :) I always wear a 4 in Wunder Unders but size up to a 6 in excels...
I was hoping for Porcelaine WU's & Chaturanga in the same, my credit card is safe as they were absent. I do like the Run: In The Sun Pullover, it looks about perfect for an Aussie (sunny) winter but at $98 I'd like to hear others' feedback first :)
Size 12 so I had to grabanything I even remotely thought I would love, I can always return it. Tame Me Tank in Porcelaine, Run in the Sun Pullover in Porcelaine (yeah, I'm a lil bit in lurv with the blue) and an Iconic Wrap.
This is off subject but I usually buy something every week. My collection is growing and growing. It would be a fun and interesting to know how many pants, tanks, shorts, ect that everyone has collected over the years. I guess I dont wanna feel alone in my obsession.
I got the zip up crb, porcelain studio crop and menthol bullet. I was thinking about the run in the sun ls and pu for golfing but passed since I get too hot when golfing. The dress looked like a slip. I have the iconic wrap from 2 yrs ago Maybe? It is confusing to put on so watch out. Practice before your practice or you could end up tangled in it ha ha. It's pretty once it's on though and super soft. I love mine once I figured it out. Thats all I got.
I love LuLu stuff, but the SPF pullover are very over priced
Concord grape Play in the Sun Shorts.
Where's the Flashback pullover?? :( Will it ever be uploaded for those of us who dont live near a store?
No porcelain blue wunder unders or groove pants? I'm SO disappointed! I refuse to buy any more black luon. It is a HUGE lint magnet and I find I don't wear them anymore.....
Bought the menthol Tame Me tank. Also, I am dissappointed with the absence of the heathered menthol Power Y. Was very bummed that the Daily Tank has the two colors that I want but will not buy in that style, as the straps falls off my shoulders. Why oh why the wee stripe dune flash is not in the CRB or Power Y? I've already missed the boat on the heathered menthol CRB. :( So, here's hoping the heathered menthol and wee stripe dune flash will come in different style of tanks...next week!
Hey ladies. Wondering if u could help me out. I got the run:chase me tanks a few weeks ago and love them because they have such good coverage as far as covering up my sports bras. I don't wear lulu bras because they don't give the girls enough support. Have any of you who have purchased the run: tame me tank find it shows your sports bra with the dip in the front of the top?
Can someone tell me more information about the Run: In the Sun long sleeve shirts? I think the idea is great because I always end up getting slightly burned out when I'm running. Could you still comfortably wear them if it's 85-90+ degrees out?
Nothing for me this week- kind of surprised but it is a welcome break for my wallet after last week (porcelaine define, white stuff my bra tank, porcelaine beachy floral headband, fossil beachy floral bang buster and a fossil vinyasa scarf).
Didn't buy anything online. Was also hoping to see the Porcelaine blue WUs and the Flashback pullovers loaded.I'll hit a store on my day off and hopefully snag a Porcelaine Tame Me. Maybe Menthol and Black. Have to see them on me w/ my skin tone. I'll also pick up more Play in the Sun shorts. Dune, and maybe Concord Grape. Keep telling myself NOT to fall in love w/ the pricy Iconic Wrap. But I can't stop thinking about it. I'm not familiar w/ it or the fabric. Any thoughts? Opinions? (I'm petite at 5'1" and 115lbs, regularly a size 4 on top, except for a 6 in some tanks due to a pudge and D cups and would use it for non-workout and possibly for the start of pilates workouts.)
Menthol silver bullet, menthol tame me tank, flash zip CRB, menthol headband, blurred blossom headband. I'm not sure that I will keep both menthol tanks, as I already have the ss swiftly in that color, but I couldn't decide between the two. I really wanted the tame me tank in flash, and this morning it looked like there was stock left in my size but it disappeared when I went to checkout. So, either someone snatched it up or it was a website error. I am still debating the flash run wild jacket. I don't really have a training need for a jacket like this, but it's sooo cute! Wish it was less expensive.
those long sleeved sun shirts are not nearly as nice as the ones from last year. :( good thing i got one in WMTM! ha hawhat's with the little "flounce" skirt thing they're adding to stuff? its on both long sleeved sun tops and the run wild jacket.
Also, I'm happy that the menthol colored silver bullet doesn't have the reflective pattern on the front. I have one of these from a couple of years ago that I use for both running and barre class. I plan to use this for both also, and obviously the reflectors aren't needed for pure barre.
Anon 4:38am I would love to know the same thing! I feel like this summer running stuff is killin me. Wallet-wise. Laura- I would like to know about the tame me tank and non-lulu sports bras too. I ordered the menthol one too. I also ordered the white SPF ls....my husband has raced in white ls for years and really swears by it. Gonna try it on and decide. Also got the white zip tank as it looks great for cycling and I had a similar zoot one yrs ago that I loved. Lastly, I got the new skirt in black. I wear my black speed skirt so much, want to at least try it on. It kinda looks like an adapted take flight skirt from last yr. the beachy porc one is cuter, but I have beachy porc overload right now with my new bikini, speed shorts and board shorts. The 2 white tops I ordered today will look nice with the beachy porc bottoms. Damn, am I broke girls. :-/
Bought the Porcelaine tame me tank! Yaay! Also pretty interested in that zippered run racerback but not sure...Question for everyone - how do you care for your white running gear, like luxtreme and circle mesh? I recently got the stuff your bra tank in white and after my run yesterday I notices it was dirty around the front neckline - looked kind of like makeup but I wasn't wearing any - or maybe sweat? Anyway, any idea how to keep it really white? I don't want to use anything that will make it go yellowish or dingy at all. Thanks!
Did anyone notice the skinny satin headband in "orange glow"? Is this an upcoming color? Me likey!
Totally agree about the ridiculous ruffle on the l/s shirts! Otherwise I'd love them! Also was really hoping for more May wee are from space stuff. Like maybe speed shorts!!!
Im also curious about Laura's question in how the run chase me compares to the run tame me. Anyone?
WTF the white sun LS is sold out on US. I was buying it and it just taken out of my basket?! Frusterating, might as well be buying on RueLaLa...
This is the first upload since Nov 2011 that I didn't order ANYTHING!! WOW
My wallet is safe this week.. for once! I was really excited for the run: in the sun l/s but I agree with the ladies above - the ruffle was a deal breaker. I already have kind of a big butt so that would just make it worse! I'm hoping they come out with a more multi-purpose upf top like the sunblocker l/s from last year.. I would buy in a heart beat!
Ack! Still waiting for the menthol Power Y tank. Did anyone else have to size up in the Chaturanga Tank? The bust is too tight in my regular size.
@Laura, @Katie, @Kim - i also prefer more supportive bras and usually run in the Champion brand - complete with an underwire! They definitely do show over the tame me tank a bit. However, I would definitely try the tata tamer with the tame me tank because I found that it ended up being supportive enough for a 16 mile run. Not sure if you have tried on the tata tamer before, but when i did, it definitely didn't seem that it would be as supportive as my other high impact bras, but i have been pleasantly surprised at how the ladies are strapped in and how comfortable it really is. Plus, it doesn't show from under the tank. ;)
Reposting since I accidentally posted it last time with my work google (having two googles is a pain). Anyway....@Laura and @ Kim: The Tame Me Tank on me is lower in the front than the Chase Me Tank, and more comfortable in the armhole area. I haven't run with the Tame Me with a non Lulu bra, but it does show a bit of both of my Adjust Me and Cross My Heart bras in that dip in the front. I did just try it on for curiosity's sake with an older cross front/reversible Under Armour bra which is a racerback style, so you can see the straps with that tank, but I could also see it in that dip part of the Tame Me. Also, for sizing purposes, I am a 34D and size 6. On a smaller chested person, it may not show the bra in the dip.
And totally unrelated to my last post, but I got my order from last week (Run: Race Tech in black and the Tame Me in the Rose Quartz) and am quite pleased. After ordering last week, I had one of those "did I make a huge mistake?" moments haha. I have the Tame Me in Flash and love love love it and was afraid the Rose Quartz would be ehn in person, but it is pretty and a nice light color for early morning runs. And the Race Tech is lightweight and looks adorable with my Paris Speed Shorts, and will be really nice for modest running moods since it is higher in the front.For anyone who has the Silver Bullet Tank, does it ever ride up? I am tempted, but have become a slave to the drawstring. Still debating an order this week. I am tempted by the Blush Quartz Tame Me. Does anyone know how that color compares to Pink Mist or Pig Pink?
Hey purrfiktangil, I just received my blush quartz speedshorts today, and i compared the color to my pink mist CRB, they are ever so similar! so unless you look really closely, i would say almost the same..the pink mist and blush quartz at least...
Where are the WAFS May Multi tanks? I love that green/blue combo. I got the dude Studio Crop, menthol tame me and the white Run In The Sun LS. Does anyone have the Iconic Wrap? I am curious about it, I'm heading to Italy in a couple weeks and thought it would be nice and light to quickly throw over my shoulders when needed. Any thoughts?
Thanks Anon 9:55 --- I just ordered the top :) I've got those old black/pink mist speed shorts which I love and it'll be nice to have a tank that's pretty darn close to the trim color.
@ LaurieI have the Sunblocker LS from last summer in white. I'm not sure if the material is the same this year, but last years version is very lightweight and breathable. I used it on long runs (1 hr +) in Florida last July (in 90-100 deg weather) and also as a cover up at the beach. I found it to be more comfortable to run in than a tank or tee (I wore it with just a sports bra under). I just scrunched the sleeve up to make it about 3/4 length. I loved not having to worry about applying sunscreen and my pale skin appreciated not turning lobster red too!
Iconic Wrap, 2 Fun in the Sun Skirts (rose quartz and Beachy Floral procelaine) and the Fun in the Sun crops.
My old silver bullet (2011 or '10?) is perfection for summer in the south. In the old model I stuck with my usual CRB size and the tank Is loose enough it glides over my curvy hips and does not ride up. It has bigger arm holes than a CRB, but sports bras show with almost every tank I own. So, that doesn't bother me. I just ordered the new model this morning in menthol. Hope that it is as awesome as my old one!
The orange glow Skinny Satin Pirouette headband has been around since they started uploading all of the dazzling items--March, maybe? That's when I bought that headband, anyway. It doesn't quite match my dazzling tops, though--the orange glow is more of a yellow orange and dazzling is more of a red orange, IMO.
I purchased the porcelain tame me tank, another black braided headband, and the run hat. I too was disappointed to not see the menthol power y or the porcelain wu. Here's hoping for next week! Though I did just have an angel purchase some ebb and flows from the Canada side of the website... Addicted :-/
Hi LuluLily,I have the iconic wrap from a couple of years ago. It is true to size but I am not well endowed at all. I have to tell you it is roomy in the front since it crosses over. Not closed, it overlaps. It is confusing to put on at first but try to find the string that keeps the shoulders a certain distance and you should figure it out. I like that it is short since I too am 5'2", 116 lbs. I love mine esp during savasana. It also does not look like a hoodie when you don't pull it up over your head. Feminine than sporty.
i cannot remember the last time it was nothing for me on upload day...today was that day for me. i see the zip crb is sold out on the canadian side, it was only available in white.i was hesitant because of the look of the front seam and the strange mismatched detailing on the zipper. any thoughts on this from someone who has one or has tried on??? the us side has the same tank in flash...any bleeding problems??i was not interested in another white crb but like the bra peeking out, it was the look of the thing i was unsure about though, no matter what the colour. and what is with all the ruffles on everything? jackets, necklines, hemlines??? is that a try on to appreciate thing? same with pleats?? no's for me but perhaps someone who has tried on can comment?
how do you all like the daily tank? I love the new wee stripe dune flash color but haven't tried one on. Is it snug fitting? (I see people say the straps are long but I have a large chest so this is usually not a problem)
I got the Play in the Sun Shorts (my favorite!) in Dune and the short sleeve rash guard in black - the long sleeve rash guard is super cool - looking forward to the short-sleeve one -- will use both alot this summer at the beach and lake.
I ordered the dress to check it out... its really expensive for what it is though.
I actually love the daily tank I also want to get the wee stripe dune flash it fits just like the crb because its actally like the same tank just without the racerback
Ordered the run tame me tank in menthol and the run swiftly racer back in rose quartz. Hopefully they do the trick. On another note - I sure wish they would add more to the wmtm section ..,,it's driving me nuts.
@ Pink Peony:Thanks for your input on the Iconic Wrap! I'm dragging my friend to a store tomorrow so here's hoping they have it for me to try on. :D And for my credit card's sake, I hope I hate it. Heh. But it is super cute and I love that it could be dressed up on the rare occasion I attempt to dress up.
