New In Stride, Dart and Dash, Ray Swiftly LS, and More

New White/Metallic Silver In Stride Jacket.

Shown with the Tie and Fly tank

Ooops! You can see her underwear. Need nude or thongs for the white shorts.

Dart and Dash shorts. I should be getting mine on Thursday. The product description said these had a 6" inseam so an inch longer than Reverse Groove shorts. I measured my Take Flight Bike Shorts from last year. They have an 8" inseam.


 New long sleeve Swiftlys in Ray and Lilac.






More Sun Sprinter Crop photos. I loved these when I tried them on. The mesh panel down the side makes them super comfortable.

Photo of the Sun Runner Short Sleeve top

New Lilac High Noon Dot bonded seam Speed Shorts.

The Made in the Shade visor also comes in solid black. Tempting. I wish it came in lilac. Wow, just checked and the white one is gone from the website. Those went quick.

 The new Ray and Power Purple Wunder Unders. Lots of excitement over these new WUs.

The Liberty Tee is in stores.

My Mantra LS
 
Rehearsal Long Sleeve tops

 Flash Light Cool Racerbak. I am tempted by this but I have developed a preference for patterned CRBs lately.

I am a sucker for metallic....and white! Going to have to have the jacket. And long sleeve swiftly in Ray...yep, two things on my list...finally (Ok three, I decided to get the FL define)

A few years ago, at least 2-3 I saw a woman wearing silver metallic Lulu WU or some sort of crop or pant/tight...anybody remember those?

Those are the indigo WU !!!! I see them!!!!

Anonymous said...

Its hard to tell that it's metallic ! But second photo from the bottom those look like the indigo WU! now I would love a top in that color! I think it would look beautiful with the flash light color!

Anonymous said...

Am I crazy or has the Lilac Long Sleeve Swiftly been on the site for a while now?! Not clear on why this keeps getting called "new"...

And yes, those really do look like indigo wunder unders--yes please!!

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer but that photo was taken from the Somerset lululemon in Michigan. They are the bruised berry some like it hot crops...

I don't think I've thanked you yet for putting together this great blog for all of us addicts. It's nice to have both a support group and have our addiction fueled by all of these fun posts!

While I wasn't super excited about anything this week other than the Rehearsal LS, which, alas, didn't show up online or in my store, this post has got me wanting to at least try on the Tie and Fly tank and the Dart and Dash shorts. Just not in those ugly (to me) dots. Yikes! I'm self-conscious enough about my lower half so don't need to call attention to it with my undies showing through and giant spots all over my backside. Even worse, what if the dots are normal sized when the shorts are on the hanger but stretch out when I put them on?! I can so see that happening to me. :D

Happens to the best of us. I'm a 4 and still have to be careful. I don't run so it would be silly to buy the tie and fly's. I ordered the dash shorts (not dotted).

Anonymous said...

Just wondering of anyone knows what color the inside is on the new bruised berry daily gym bag. I'd love to know! Thank you!!

I like the ray ls. I bought the liberty top yesterday at the store to use as a dress. It's really sheer so I'll wear tights with it. I intended to return my wunder grooves but did not coz of this. I thought the black wunder groove was boring but the equating and tapered legs work with the liberty top. I can also use it for a top scrunched at the waist but since I'm short enough it works as a dress.

Pink Peony 4 said...

Sorry not equating. Waistline I mean.

As I was leaving my local store yesterday with an armful of new stuff, they were just starting to put out the purple WU's. I wasn't going to get any but I had to try them on and they look so awesome!! I'm short, and a bit on the ... curvier side :) and these looked fantastic on me!!

Also, strangely enough, the hot but not tank. I'm a 38C and it looks absolutely fantastic on me. Who'da thunk it?
The Flash Tie & Fly is also super flattering, especially cinched up.

What started out as being a no-spend week ended up being a very expensive week for me indeed.

I saw white visors in the store, but they didn't have the dot patterned tie thing on them. Different visor?

Sourkraut said...

@Pink Peony 4 -- What a great idea to use the Liberty as a dress! I'll admit I don't think it's the right style for me but on a shorter frame with some cute leggings I can see it looking fab.

@Anon 6:24 AM -- I'm glad to hear another positive review of the Hot But Not, even though that makes me more and more antsy for them to release it in a color I actually want. Not too keen on the dots and, as cool as it looks in black, I need a colored top to pair with my black and navy bottoms. That said, I did order the purple WUs and am excited to see how they look on me. But those'll be for running whereas I wouldn't be brave enough to wear the Hot But Not out and about. That'll be solely for my enjoyment doing my at home workouts.

Anonymous said...

Sourkraut - (anon 6:24 here) the purple dot one is the one I ended up getting, as well as a purple dot CRB, which is gorgeous! I'm actually wearing it to work with grey pants and a little sweater. I'm not keen on the dots as they look on the website but they are beautiful in person.

Hey Tracy Reifkind
I have the dark grey metallic
I keep my store/hang tags
They are actually Wunder Under *Pkt tights. They have a pocket at the cuff. The color code is GRHL I think grey heather luxtreme. They have a smooth slinky feel.
Price tag $54.00
Remember those days????

The girls in the new colored WU and bright defines look so FAB!!! Wish I could pull that off, but I don't think my thick legs would look cute in neon yellow. :) My legs are toned and strong, but I think the colors look better on the slimmer build types. Maybe if they made bruised berry WUs? Or did they ever make concord grape ones? Power purple, Ray, and Pow pink just don't seem like they would flatter me... At least not my lower half. Now what I'd really love to see is a bruised berry define with a flash light logo. How cute and fun would that be?!

Anonymous said...

Marti said
Geesh the Blush quartz wee stripe Define and the Blush quartz with interior dotted color look like the same exact jacket --at least online I haven't seen either in person
I'm tired of purple-bruised berry, concord grape, lavender and etc
Old color Pow Pink hmmm how close is that to Paris pink???

If they're bringing back the clam diggers and bringing back metallic luon, I really hope they make metallic clam diggers again!

OT and really random: I am wearing my Ta Ta Tamer under my Ann Taylor work clothes today. I'm planning to hit Barre class at lunch time and though this would save me a bit of wardrobe changing time. Anyway, I'm a 34DD, and until I discovered the TTT bra a month or so ago all my sports bras were compression style Road Runner Sports brand. Those are great, but because the compression is what controls the girls I can only stand a few hours in those bras before my ribcage starts to get sore. However, the TTT bra is so comfy and maintains a shape similar to my "normal" bras. I think that I could wear it all day without soreness. Also, I can really run comfortably in it. No bounce! It's like magic.

Tracy Reifkind said...

Marti, Funny as hell!

Mrs s said...

OT: has anyone seen the lilac ps skirt in person? Is the skirt soft, like the black ps? Or stiffer, like the dune & pink?

Anonymous said...

Since I bought my first TTT bra, I donated all my other bras, except a few where I needed slimmer straps. I wear them every day :)

Anonymous said...

Do you know if lll will make he ttt bra again in b cup. There hasn't been any the last couple of uploads nor in my local store.

Also if anyone has a pic of the new wuc indigo It would be great to see. Thanks

Anonymous said...

i was so excited to go to my local store after this upload. i tried on the tie and fly and wanted to like it so bad. but i found that there was just too much material for me - the back paneling would just bunch up and doesn't really lie flat. bummed b/c i liked the length and how it covers the butt.

i also tried on the sun sprinter crops and while they were REALLY comfortable, i don't like how the seams on the outside of the legs aren't sewn completely flush to the leg. does that make sense?

the ray WU made my legs look gargantuan! i'm not super skinny, but i'm a runner so i have muscular legs. before trying them on, i felt like i needed them, afterwards, i couldn't get them off fast enough. HOWEVER, the power purple ones were AMAZINGLY flattering.

i ended up with the power purple WU and ray swiftly racerback - i cannot get enough of those...

Anonymous said...

OT:
I received the Lulu Somerset (Michigan) product notice e-mail today and it lists Astro WU crops in Black/New Blue/Wee Black Stripe and Coal/Lilac/Grapeseed. I wonder if this is accurate? I know what Grapeseed looks like but is "New Blue" an old color also? Would they really bring out grapeseed pieces when power purple has just popped up?

Anonymous said...

Those are the astro wunder unders I tried on! See through! The educator said they make the fabric thinner for summer. Ummm ok....

Focus said...

Tracy- I, like yourself, am a sucker for 2 things, metallic silver and swiftly tops. I'm a self admitted swiftly junkie and to know that there was some type of silver bottom years ago, and that the possibility exist that they may come again....BRING IT Lulu!! We are ready and waiting:)

OT-I got my first swiftly snag last week (it's remarkable that it didn't happen sooner, since I can be so rough on clothing). It's by my hip, under my arm. It is not very visible since the snag occured on the inside of the fabric, so I am not super concerned, but I remembered that I am not to touch or cut the string, is there anything else?

Oh, and one more thing. Good work Lulu on your bags, the materials, finishing etc. I wear my swiftlys all the time and my triumph tote (which I use as my purse) has never caused my tops a problem....amazing to me.

Unknown said...

I am still pretty new to Lulu, but have fallen hard!! I might need to get another job to support this addiction!
I suppose I should be glad that the nearest store isn't too far, but I can't just run on over there on my lunch hour. I just wish that the great things I see here were available to view online. The Lulu website is a little confusing to me. FOr example, I want to check out the Some Like It Hot Crops, but they are no where to be found.... I guess it is a good thing that I am forced to wait and see if they have it at my closest store when I can get down there.
Thanks for all the great and hard work!!

Anonymous said...

Weird - it was the purple/grey Astro WUs I bought - not see through at all and not thin, either! Sounds like it was the grapeseed/coal/lilac but I would have to check the tag to be sure. In any event, I LOVE them.

Taryn said...

I LOVE THIS BLOG!! :)

I too have completely switched to the Ta Ta Tamer. I'm a 36DD and all my past bras were all about COMPRESSION because gawd knows there's nothing worse then seeing a runner going down the street and you cringe for her with every step!! I love that I have fantastics sports bras keep me in place and still celebrate the girls! :) I never thought of wearing them daily though ... hmmm ... I'll have to consider that because they'd probably be great under my work uniform!

The hot but not tank is so cute but I never thought to try it on because of my cup size. I may have to now! But I'll stay away from the polka dots. BTW - I had an interesting coversation with one of the Lulu store managers last Saturday (one who is always featured as a model on the website) It turns out that the seaside dot (blurred polka dots pattern) came from an employee playing with a felt maker on a napkin ... !

I already love my new tie and fly tank in black, even when I'm not running. I wore it yesterday with my inner heart flash bra peeking out through the mesh. I also picked up a flash stride jacket ... OMG LOVING that as well and getting tons of compliments on it. I'm a flash junkie, I must admit. I managed to track down a flash scarf on ebay for a decent price a few weeks ago. (Not the 100.00 ones that people are selling!!!)so hopefully that's it for my collection.

Prepper Yogini said...

are the long sleeve ray swiftlies out yet? Any word on more v-neck swiftlies?

I want a ray/pow pink/bruised berry CRB

Pink Peony 4 said...

Indigo is older around Xmas time. Power purple you mean? I have the indigo. Also I am a B Cup as well. I don't think they consider it tata worthy enough of taming. I would also like one. As small as I am in tata world I like to feel supported when I'm jumping around during workouts. Too bad for us.

purrfiktangil said...

@Anon 10:39, not sure if New Blue is an old color, but if you want to see it, the Boogie Short online comes in New Blue right now.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone else feel like there will never be anything new in WMTM? I've checked it morning and night for weeks, and I swear it has been the same 13 things forever! For cryin' out loud, nobody wants the detachable sleeve Scuba in Juuuuuune!!!! Ok, my rant is over.

Anonymous said...

Hi there. I only do one more additional thing which is I put this stuff called fray block on. Like you, I've got tons of swiftly & only a couple of snags. The fray block has lasted for numerous washes, too. I bought it from amazon, but I'm sure fabric stores have it.....

Anonymous said...

I've seen a B cup TTT at stores in Canada (Calgary and Edmonton) recently. However, depending on your size....I just recently tried the TTT for the first time. In normal bras I am ALWAYS a B cup. The B TTT was ridiculous on me, but the 34C fit perfectly! Now I wear it for running. Might be worth giving it a try!

Does anyone know what the difference is between Power Luxtreme (Inspire) and Power Luxtreme II (Sun Sprinter Crop)?

Anonymous said...

I predict a loot upload!! The inner peace jacket is gone and I heard its on sale in stores. Yippee!

sophia said...

does anyone know if the dart and dash shorts have the silicone gripper at the leg openings? it doesn't say anything about it in the product description, but i thought these were styled as a longer version of the run:shorty shorts which DO have the grippers. if they don't have the grippers, i wonder if they stay down or ride up...

Anonymous said...

Just came from my store in Calgary, they had ray, power purple and indigo WU crops! I do remember the metallic lulu from a few years ago, I still have the green wren like metallic crops

Minda said...

I'm all interested in the LS rehearsal! . . a solid one though, I always looked "IN CHARGE" in horizontal stripes

Anonymous said...

Dart and Dash shorts do NOT have the silicone grippers at the hem. I tried them on in store yesterday, and they were pretty bad on me...almost to my knees. (I'm 5'3")
I do have the Run: Shorty Shorts, and I love to run in them....however, I do NOT like how they make the backs of my thighs look. I was thinking these might be a good alternative, but they are far too long and no silicone leg grippers. For reference, I sized up in these when I tried them on. I wear a 4 in all Lulu, but I have the size 6 Run: shorty Shorts, and I think these are sized similarly. Also, who the heck is going to look good in the white spotted shorts. Ugly!!!!

sophia said...

anon 4:33 - thanks for the info! if you like the shorts and the only problem is length, you should get them hemmed..i mean, if they don't have the leg grippers you don't really lose any features, so you can make them the length you want.

Erin said...

Are the ray WUs sold out online already? I can't manage to find them. Lucky me, I bought a pair in the store today. Went in for a TTT, came out having spent $250! I just wish they would line the brighter colors with black. Not everyone needs to see my undie color or my tattoos.

I also must say: the purple WUs are MUCH prettier than the lulu website makes them look. I wasn't interested in them at all when I saw them online, but in person: WOW.

How does the ray swiftly look in person? I haven't seen it in person; the store I was at today didn't get it in :(

Anonymous said...

Just like to thank the angel that brought me my bliss bag!!!!!! It was only fate that brought us together after being sold out online and then magically appearing online on Monday Morning! It has arrived and is very happy here with me! My compulsive checking of the website brought us together! WOOHOO!

Anonymous said...

They were unpacking the purple WUs at my store this afternoon when I dropped in. Very cute. I don't need them so I wasn't tempted but the color is very nice.

I did walk out with a pair of the Run Fast and Free crops. In plain old black. I know, I'm wild and crazy. :) I sized up because they just seemed small in my regular size. Not see-through small, but I think the lower rise made me nervous they were too small. I'm wondering if I made a mistake, but the larger size seems to fit fine.

Anonymous said...

I feel you! Lulu, please put some staples out there, at least in the colors that aren't moving. Like the Adjust Me bra... Nobody likes the white straps. But, if you put it on sale, it will sell!

Anonymous said...

I have a chest like the woman in the Rehearsal top. I guess it's not going to work for me, after all.

Trying to resist the purple WU crops. Hoping for full-length.

And MORE MAY MULTI!!

Have we seen any peaks of bruised berry tanks to come?

Anonymous said...

They just marked down a lot of Adjust Me Bras this week in my store, $29. Not all colors but enough for me to get one at a good price! Things are in sale at the stores, not sure why they aren't online.

C-lyn said...

NEW BAG ALERT!!!! Or new color!!!!!! Check out the a muse pant!!! Bahaha no one looks there because they are ugly! But there is a sackasana bag in bruised berry!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhh

LinGal said...

Yup got 1 adjust me bra for $29 but am wondering if I should get another as I read previous reviews that the straps get undone easily and you can't really wear them cross back. Any thoughts?

Unknown said...

Tried on the Ray WUs in my local store in Portland, OR yesterday and they are mega see through. Not even doing a down dog and you can see everything.

Anonymous said...

I'm so happy to hear nice reviews of the power purple WUC. I ordered them online and was worried about the color when I get to actually see them in person. Now I'm excited to get them. :)

Hey.. Off topic.. Has anyone experienced their lulu. Symbol coming off? I bought a vest a few months back and the logo just peeled off!!! Is this what is to be expected now with the quality of their clothing :(

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:18 pm - I've read complaints that the Adjust Me straps pop off the hooks so be aware.

@ anon 11:56 pm - I've heard of it coming off now and then. If you take it into a store, they can fix it for you.

@anon 5:52 pm
I do hope you got that Bliss Bag on sale..$69

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 7:55 am - I have become a big Ta TA Tamer fan and it's all I wear for running. I wish they would make it in more colors.

LuluAddict said...

@ C-lyn - Sharp eye! Thanks for spotting!

Katie said...

I tried on the rehearsal ls in black today and it was a big disappointment. I am a 34dd and it looked too tight in the chest...the fabric actually turns shiny when stretched out so i had shiny boobs and matte everywhere else. Hahah! However, a big surprise to me- I left with the flash light define! It was butter soft and I have read that flash light is not bleeding. It just felt like a quality piece that I'd expect from the company I've come to question! I also scored an April multi wafs scoopneck in my size 6! How in the world that was still here I don't know. Must have been a return. It's really pretty and soft. I am a picky luon person. I won't even consider it if it is scratchy. Lulu has been saving me so much money with the cheap looking stuff lately. The cut your own stuff is crazy!
