So excited for speed shorts! Do we have any idea if they are two-way or four-way stretch?
Are the ray ones speeds or turbos? I wish, wish, wish they were turbos!
So far my wallet is safe, I'm still waiting for the red jacket in the sneak peak photo for Jackets & Hoodies.
Just came from my store -- those were all turbos, only the speeds in Ray. the colors are beautiful IRL.
I think the currant and dense purple shorts look like turbos. But I'd love to see them in speeds too.
Cute bag! And finally, WUC in Ziggy Wee Flare. :)
Im confused. I already bought the speeds in Ray over a month ago. These are new? Also, the ones I bought are 2 way stretch, and I really only like 4, wish I would have returned them. :(
Blast! I hope we see more than just Ray in the speed shorts. Now didn't the ray color have issues with pulling colors? Is this a concern for the shorts?
The shorts are turbos not speeds. Only the ray one are speeds. Where are all the speed shorts! The turbos are getting all the nice colors but I just can't wear turbos.
Already have the caspian ziggy wu, so no to these. Tonight I think I will get:Flare CRB - if it is orangeyPower Purple Define - tried this on last week and LOVE! spent the week contemplating...Angel Blue energy braMaybe other things we have yet to see...Also buying the black gym bag in store though, my mom is a yoga teacher and gets 15% off. However, if I buy clothing, they won't give to me, so I prefer to order online since the selection is better.
I like these crops
I like the bag. Very cool what they did for the National Ballet. Pass on the Speeds or Turbos here. Plan to pick up those red Speeds at Sea Wheeze. Hopefully another colour too!
I'm hoping the angel blue energy bra gets uploaded...Can anyone tell me which is better for an a cup, the energy bra or the free to be? No stores close by to try on...Thanks!
I think those are Turbos. I bought Ray speeds over a month ago but would rather have Turbos. I will definitely be buying the Currant turbos!
Oh i missed out on ray speed shorts last time. How come they are releasing out again?
Hey 5:04 anon, free to be is def more suited for a smaller bust! It is cut narrower. I love the energy bra, but I'm a 32d, so it keeps everything in place.
I had to size down on the Energy Bra and I'm a B cup.
I can't decide if I like those ziggy WUCs or not. Boyfriend says no... Im just can't decide!! And I dont want to miss my chance so I may end up ordering just to test out.
I have speed shorts and some fit differently than others. For example, the pair I bought last year are larger than the two pairs I bought this year ( all a size 4). I didn't realize that some were 2 or 4 way stretch. Maybe this explains it. If anyone can contribute more knowledge about speed shorts, please let me know.Gina
Aren't those Turbo Shorts in the Purple and Red/Orange colors? The only ones that look like Speed Shorts are the Yellow Ray ones.
Ray was a bleeder before, so the Ray Speed Shorts will most likely bleed, too.
Any one else notice that the WU description on the Website is wrong?I bought a pair of these at the weekend and they do not have the diamond gusset the blurb claims, they have a triangular gusset.http://shop.lululemon.com/products/clothes-accessories/women-pants/Wunder-Under-Pant-Reversible-31552?cc=8157&skuId=3452954&catId=women-pantsHow many other styles are being described incorrectly?
@ Anonymous 5:04... I second what Charlotte said. I personally love the Free To Be. It doesn't provide enough support for running (I'm a 32 large B/small C), but it works well for Crossfit/Aerobic classes. I want to like the Energy Bra, but it sits too low on my ribcage.
I wasn't a huge fan of the ziggy CRB, but these WUs may very well be a rare full-price purchase for me. I still regret not buying running crops in one of the spring space patterns; I'd hate to miss out on these too.
@August 6, 2012 4:42 PMI agree about not liking Turbo Shorts. They're tight across the crotch (so CT watch!), but baggy everywhere else. Where are all the Speed Shorts LLL?
Kate @August 6, 2012 6:13 PMThe Ziggy print pants are made of thick fabric that's sure to be hot. Great for winter, but not so great for any other time of year. I've also yet to see them look good on anyone in person :(
Anon 5:04, I stick to the Free to Be now because they no longer make the Energy bra in a size 2. :( I am a 32C and the narrow cut and less fabric make it a better choice for me.
@anon 5:04 PM Agree with all. I prefer Free To Be over the Energy. Love the pretty, daintier straps for my A cups. The Energy is too constricting for me, plus it feels like "overkill", support wise, for my A.
@ 5:40 PM if they don't really grab you then you're not in love with them and maybe should pass. I originally was drawn to them from the banner photos. Tried them on when they came out and could get away with them - funkadelic! But I'm sure I'd just get bored of them because I don't love love them. I found them too poly as well which was a turn off.
Hey, this is OT but I'm hoping anyone can help me - how do I get in touch with the Lulu Angels? I had something SAD happen today! Have a new pow pink CRB, worn twice, washed today in a Lulu only load (and pinks only - flash, pow pink) and it came out with HOLES on the front!!!! But it looks like a moth or a mouse at holes in it or something! I emailed GEC but don't expect to have much luck as it looks like an actual hole not a flaw with the top. I have NO IDEA how it happened. The only thing in the wash that maybe could have done it was the zipper on my pow pink elevation space dye speed shorts!! Has anyone heard of this ever happening??!!! Anyway now I need to find the angels to somehow replace this top : ( : ( I love it so much and it is (was) brand new!!!
I'm liking the Ziggy Wee WUCs. Now I can't decide if I want the Flare, Caspian or Greys. Do you think they'd be available in all those colors?Speaking of LLL shoppers -- so I ordered The Mat and what do they include in the package? The smallest bag they have. Since I have my packages delivered to my office, that small bag didn't help. LOL.
Anon 6:53, that is really good advice. I have a boatload of Lululemon items that I was kind of wishy washy on that I am now listing on Ebay. I am trying to heed the advice that I I don't LOVE it, I don't need it. I made myself return my currant WU crops since I was on the fence. ((That was so hard! ))PS: I found the ziggy WU pants way too poly- bummer since I like funky patterned yoga pants :( I am hoping the crops are different. But I think they are an impulse buy ...I need to resist ;) lol yes I have a problem.
Does anyone know if the bra portion of the NLT in power purple is also power purple? I was secretly hoping it would be different, like ziggy wee caspian!
@Anon 7:23 - Oooh, that would be so cute. I would definitely get that combo.
My Ray stuff (speeds, ss swiftly, sl swiftly) never bled.
I'm an A and I like both the free to be and the energy bras.I have a long torso, so the energy bra does not come down too far on my ribcage (like it does in some of the photos). So it's worth a try if you are really wanting one, if you don't mind sending it back if it doesn't work out for you.
I prefer the Free To Be and Flow Y bras to the Energy bra. The Energy flattened out my B-cups.
Crossing my fingers that they load the ziggy wee flare WUC and the currant turbos tonight. ;)
They have a ton of pow pink CRBs in Bellevue WA, seems like most ppl don't like the blend. I like the color so I don't mind the blend but the pop orange crb is def softer.
I'm thinking of purchasing my first pair of wunder under crops. I'd love to get some input as to sizing. TTS, size up, size down? I usually only buy speed shorts, turbos and pacesetter skirts. All in size TTS according to their size chart, size 4. Thanks in advance.
Hmmm Sandra thanks for the info! (it's anon @ 6:54) I'm 4 hours from my nearest store and last time I was in the city I checked 2 stores and didn't see any! Maybe I can convince GEC to source me one from there...does anyone know if that is possible? that is if they accept any responsibility for the problem...
@Anon 8:58 pm: I am also a 4 in everything Lulu but I sized up in the currant WUC since it is thinner material IMO. I don't like to see the sheen whenever it is stretched out. I also size up in anything denim since they are definitely tighter on me and just for comfort. Hope this helps you decide. I am 5'2" 118 lbs and pear shaped. I don't work out in my WU btw. Since I decided to go to 2013 SW, I told myself to get one running gear for every mile I gain in training. I probably fall off the wagon as soon as tonight's upload but I will sure give it a try. Oh but this won't count since I am starting my C25K after the olympics. Winner!Still no on ziggy anything for me.
@anon 9:13 (CRB problem). Just give it a try. Can't hurt at this point since you sound like you are in love with it. If they have seen the problem before, they might accept responsibility. We all here know that our relationship with our stores is really key in these times of returns and damages. How annoying. You really don't have a store per se since you are so far. I know my store will do it for me but that is probably because I have a great relationship with them and go regularly. I also tell them that everything I buy I am reviewing and will give a review on their site and on blogs; I also mention I say something about them as well. This really should not matter but this case seems a little out of the ordinary. Ask for the manager right away, don't mess around with the other girls since the mgr has to sign off on it anyway. Just be honest and present it like you said here. People can tell and they are humans so anything can happen. You can do it. May the force be with you.
Thanks Pink Peony! I will try and report back! Hope GEC answers my email for a start...
Yes, thank you Pink Peony. It's anon 8:58. Your advice on the wunder unders helps a lot. I usually go through the online reviews on LL's website but didn't find much help. I think I'll order the 6's too.
I think the energy bra fits bustier women better. The free to be is for smaller women I have both in the same size and I like the free to be but it reveals way too much. I can't workout in the free to be. I am a 34-D and the energy bra fits me very well I can run in it as well.Too bad they ran out of the 6 in angel blue at my store.My ray lift and separate bra does not bleed. I love that color. looks great on tan skin and it seems to be very popular this summer in NYC.
