can someone explain why there are more please me pullovers??
Was looking forward to the spring has sprung groovy runs - then I realized lulu ruined yet another pair with color blocking. Just the coal E&Fs and the spring has sprung all sport bra for me tonight.
I'm so glad the uploads have been much earlier the past few weeks. I hope they continue with that schedule. I got the new Uba in black, my local store only had it in the other 3 colors.
I ordered the E&F in black and indigo. So excited about these. I'm also super glad about the longer length. It is the one thing I'd have changed about the first E&F.
I feel this upload was one the best ones they've had in weeks overall - but after all the stripes and color blocking nonsense that's not saying much. I bought the Ebb and Flows in black and flare and two singlets. I have to say LLL is over doing the floral SHS print - they're putting it in everything! It's going to be dated in like 3 months.
I bought the inkwell RFYL crops, 105F singlet in light flare (and I'm mad that they increased the price! I would have gotten two of them if they were still in the $40 range), and the crane crops in the spring print. I'm intrigued by these... I'm wondering if they could be used for running? I like the print on the legs, but we'll see what they look like in person. I'm 5'2'', so I appreciate the 16'' inseam. I was going to get the ebb and flow crops to try them out, but I see that they have a 21'' inseam, which I think would go down to my ankles... and I didn't want to order all three pairs of crops, since that gets expensive really fast! I wish I could try them on though, to see why everyone loves them so much. Do you guys think the prices for crops are also higher? Most of their crops are now $88. I thought last spring/summer they were closer to $69-$79. And the $10 increase for the 105F singlet?! Probably just because it is silver. Well, it doesn't have a built-in bra, so it is difficult to justify the price, but I loved my other ones so much that I wanted to get at least one more.
I got Light Flare and Coal E&F Crops
Hi annon 11:28pm, can you do a fit review for the new scuba with sherpa lining? Really tempted to get those but its 148$! I dont live near a store so i need to order online. Thanks!!
Can someone explain to me, why lululemon thinks the new Please Me Pullovers with a barely noticeable contrast piping on the shoulders are worth $98 as opposed to $19?? Totally irrational IMO.
Bought every color in ebb and flow except for the flare color. Love these crops.
Dang, I was hoping for the burning yellow CRB. Maybe the Inkwell one, we'll see. Otherwise nothing for me, thanks.
@ Anon 11:24 agreed. I went ahead and ordered them, but who knows if I will keep them.
Well I've officially lost hope that the Pump It Up jacket will appear online
Post Restorative Sweatpant, wow, another ugly, dumpy sweatpant! Seriously, we've seen enough of these.
Do you guys size up for the ebb and flows? I am between sizes in winder unders. The fours are a little tight on my butt but the waistband of the 6 is too big. What would you order for ebb and flow?
I'm tempted by these sweatpants as well.
Got the inkwell CRB and a few other items I'd had my eye on for a while. Want to see how inkwell will go with the love red pacesetter I bought last month.
Got a pair of the Ebb & Flows and the Spring Has Sprung No Limit Tank. I'm excited to see how the tank looks. I was hoping for a Burning Yellow CRB...:(
Totally disappointing upload. Please me pullover, again?? The Restorative pants look very similar to the pleasing pants, which I happen to love. But what's with the piping down the side?? And the color blocking, oy! Enough already!! I've never tried the ebb and flow pants. Can someone share what makes them so wonderful? I have to say I wasn't tempting by even one thing.
Are the E&F crops TTS? I wear a 10 in wunder unders, inspires, grooves, etc. Thanks!
Did I miss the burning yellow CRB upload? I didn't see it on the Canadian side.
Dear god please don't let anyone buy the bootyshorts who will be in front of me during yoga. There are some things I just don't need to see.Nothing for me, the E7F in coal look nice, but Sugoi has the exact same thing for a fraction of the cost... so yeah, I think I am going to go with the other Canadian Company this week.
Such as shame about the color blocking of all the rest of the SHS shorts. Ugh. I got the SHS/black no limits tank. Not sure if I'll keep it but wanted to make sure I got my size. I saw all the Ebb & Flows yesterday in store and really liked the Coal color, but not the new length. I'm 5'6'' with shorter legs and 6s were very long.
Inkwell CRB (will return if its too close to black), light flare striped vinyasa (just got my first one last week and I LOVE it), and burning yellow inspire crops. I'm hoping they'll upload the burning yellow CRB before my return window closes on the crops. I only want the crops if I can have the matching CRB. I hope next week all I'll want is that CRB... too much lulu in my closet.
Those Frond crops (Ebb and Flow it looks like?) on Aussie Crops banner are soooo cute! Also love the Frond swiftly tank. Oh man that green is going to be popular as long as they keep it solid! Think my lulu spending freeze officially ended last week. Ordered the Dark Charcoal E&Fs this AM and thinking on a couple other things too. Think I should snag an Inkwell CRB. Seems useful.
Nothing for me. Will try on the SHS all sports bra in store. LLA, check out the Australian site... New "Ebb & Flow" material sports bra. Also, new short version of Ebb & Flow crops in Frond (Green) as well as a new jacket.
I grabbed the ebb and flows in black and inkwell but size 6 in deep coal was already sold out by the time my alarm woke me at 2am EST. WTF? Sigh... I guess I'll be heading into a store to grab the deep coals sometime this week. :P
I wanted the coal E&Fs, but as I tried to add it to my bag, the website froze and had an error. When I refreshed the site, the size 8s were gone (along with the 6s and 10s which were gone when I first got to the site).I settled for black E&Fs. Please don't be see-through; please don't be see-through...
As I tried to purchase the coal E&Fs, the website froze and they sold out of them. I settled for black E&Fs. Please don't be see-through this time; please don't be see-through....
Nothing! Haha just another variation of what's already been released!Bah!!!!
Wow, I'm surprised the E&F crops haven't apparently sold out in any size in any color.People even if you are only remotely interested in them, or have never heard about them, because you are a lulu newbie, get them now, or by the time you fall in love them and decide to get a pair, they'll be on ebay three times its original price.We can always return it if they are too long, sheer or scratchy (none of which I have experienced and I have nine between all three releases)
Frond on the Aus site. LOVE the solid groovy run shorts!
@ anon 4:45 am - A question was asked on the lululemon Facebook page about the Pump It Up Jacket making it to the web store and they answered that it was not going to be uploaded. I think that is an error on their part. It's one of my favorite warm weather jackets.
@girlydoll: which sugoi pants are like the E&F? i'd like to check 'em out! thanks!
Re the Please Me Pullovers: I got a Black Swan one from WMTM at $19 because I thought I didn't have much to lose at that price. I sized up two sizes, so it isn't super short, and it is really soft and comfy... (However, my husband still commented that it was only $19 because half of it is missing! smart*ss) I've been wearing it all the time. But I would NEVER pay more than $20 for it! I can not believe they made more. Bizarre.Someone convince me I should buy the Coal E&F. I just don't get the hype, but I have not tried them on.
Loving the Frond Ebb and Flows.. but the AUS also has what looks like solid colored pink shell speed shorts on the shorts banner... WANT WANT!!!
No - Lululemon has not tempted me with anything over the past month. Sad for me but good for my wallet! :)
My store (santa Barbara) has the yellow solid crb. It's very pretty! I tried on the ebb and flow crops and really didn't fall in love. I think the material looks like spanx!
Just have to point out - there are now 15 (yes, FIFTEEN) colors available of the Free to Be bra. You know they're just making this bra so much because it's cheap for them to make, otherwise why wouldn't more classic style bras that sell out fast be uploaded? :(
I really want the booty shorts but the leg opening is 17" which is kinda small. I am sitting on the fence about the inspire crops in inkwell and yellow as well as the CRB in inkwell, the same with the pace setter skirt and the 105F singlet the white color is the only one that I actually like. I also want to stock up on the first base tank. I think this last upload was pretty good and it makes me want to spend money which I don't have.M
Like someone else, got the E&Fs in light flare and deep coal. I'm short and loved the length on the previous version. These will probably look more like leggings on me. I guess I can always do a return if needed. I hope flare holds up in the downward dog test. I have deep indigo and the heathered gray colors from the last release and they are my most comfortable pants, I love them for my hot yoga classes!
I wish Energy Bras would come out in pretty colors.
Pretty stoked with my online order, a CRB in Inkwell and a Daily Bra in Light Flare :)These two items are my favorites and they are SOLID colors. Not a fan of the stripes, florals and dots...
Just the inkwell ebb and flows and a plain white CRB.
I bought the Inkwell E&F crops. If I love them, I will go to my local store and buy the black ones (and maybe coal). I would have ordered more colors but being that I am 5'4" I am VERY worried about the new length. Crops are always long on me, so I am used to scrunching them at the bottom... We'll have to see when the new ones arrive:) Nothing else for me:)
Ebb and Flows are TTS.
I really dislike the way they are styling some of the models in the pants and crops pictures. I hate boat shoes, moccasins and loafers with workout clothes, so it's making me not want to buy the item. Why don't they just stick to athletic shoes or barefoot? The other stuff looks just plain goofy, hipster.
Anyone know yet, now the Post Restorative Sweatpants fit???? They are cute! I bought the new bra that was uploaded, in pink. Thats it. I didn't LOVE anything else. I had E&F crops and it took me 3 months to sell them. LOL... Not sure what all the excitement is about them.
Bought the E&F in light flare and inkwell since I have al the other colors from the past. I am looking forward to the new length. On me, it'll be like pants so it's good for wearing with boots and stuff. Hoping it's not sheer. Yeah Ebb and Flows were on WMTM at one point so it was not a big hit but lately there's too much hype about them. I don't understand it either. I had to wear one to yoga today just to re affirm my decision. I still don't think they are that special. Mine might be going back. Not a big loss.
Me too! I went to the store today and tried them on. They felt wonderful but will have to wear a full booty panty with them :/I got the inkwell and light as air undies. But I'd rather spend money on workout wear that I can wear for ALL my activities. Lulu sucker for sure that I am. Y
Well I had Coal E&F in my cart here in Canada by the time I was done browsing to check out they were sold out in size 4 :( Went with Black which I'm not stoked about but at least I get to have a pair!
Broke my Lulu dry spell! I think that the Post Restorative Sweatpants are super cute, but cannot justify spending $80 on a pair of glorified sweat. I've been eyeing the Skinny Will Pants in Inkwell for a while and got those. I feel that they are a nice mix of lounge and technical. Also got a pair of Inkwell Ebb and Flows to add to my crop collection. I hope I love them as much as everyone else does.
I just want some energy Bras in Pretty colors:(
I wish the old Flow Y bras would come back....meaning I wish they were an inch higher in the material, to cover up the girls! I miss the old flow Ys!!! Why does Lulu always have to take away a good thing and mess around with it?!?-Sara
I was wondering: Anyone who purchased the original Ebb & Flows notice the waistband bag out over time? Perhaps I bought a size too big? Although I did buy the same size I wear for Inspires, Dance Studio pants/crops, etc. I ended up selling my Indigo ones on eBay because of the waistband, although I do partially regret it because they were a great crop otherwise.
How sheer are the Ebb & Flows exactly? I know they've been getting a lot of hype, and I haven't tried them on, but I've been hearing mixed reviews. Can anyone give reasons as to why I should or shouldn't buy them? Thanks!
@Anon 1:59pm - some people have said they are not sheer at all. I found the original ones in black and deep indigo to be sheer only when I bent over. The heathered grey were too sheer no matter what for me though, so i didn't get them. However, with the dark colors this is easily remedied by wearing solid black boy short undies underneath. They are seriously the most comfortable pants I have ever put on, so the forced choice of underwear is totally worth it IMO.
The flare ebb and flow was so see through when I bent over that you could read the label. Had to size up in the inkwell and coal so that they were acceptable for a yoga class. Ugh.
I would not size up on the Ebb & Flows-- yes the waistband will gradually bag out and create an annoying bulge under your shirts. If they turn out to be sheer, I'd just rather not buy them period instead of being conned into "sizing up."@girlydoll: Could you please share which Sugoi pants you got?? I'm interested as well and looking for more LLL alternatives lately...I was slightly tempted by the Post Restorative sweatpants but my friends reminded me of our New Years Resolution: No More Sweatpants! :-)
@ 9:35 AM, yes total hipster vibe is what LLL is doing. Didn't you hear, this is the BS direction they're going in.
Went to my local store today to try on the Ebb and Flows. The Flare was so sheer that bending over was not an option. Ended up getting the Inkwell and Coal in a size larger than I usually wear, but they are still a *tad* bit sheer. Love them, but I don't know how Lululemon expects people to do Yoga in these! Yikes!
OT: where did the limitless blue LS swiftly come from?
I never noticed the waist bag out on my indigo ebb and flows i but I only wash and line dry them and have prob only worn them a handful of times since I bought them in August and it got cold out here (WA) pretty fast. They don't seem like they would back out tho. Mine are pretty thick and sturdy and not sheer at all.
LOL!!!! I think it looks cute but I would NEVER wear shoes like that.
That's what I did - just passed instead of sizing up on the E&Fs... there was way too much material and bunched when I sized up and it was still sheer! Come on Lulu you can do better.
Just the black ebb and flows for me. The coal sold out this morning after I tried to check out! By the reviews though and the one reader's comment about the fabric being thinner... I'm guessing its a return!
Finally, the Lulu Gods have answered my prayers with a worthy replacement for my beloved Feel Good Pants! Bought two pairs of the Post Restorative Sweatpants. The inseam is only 29.5 inches though; my Feel Good's are 32.5. Otherwise, they look virtually identical except for the back pocket being on the left side now. E
Oh, and I absolutely love my Please Me Pullovers... but not these colors so much. I'd love the inkwell color more without the flare stripe.E
I think it's funny how everyone is freeking out over the E & Fs! Like I said before, I owned a pair from 1.5 years ago and when I was ready to sell them, new with tags, they were up on Kijiji for 3 months!!! No, bites! So I don't know where this crazy demand is suddenly coming from! LMAO... It's not like we just heard, the Be still pants or the Lux hoodies are making a come back. they aren't, far as we know. The Be still pants were my most favourite pants of all time and the Lux hoodie a close second. I just stalk eBay for my fav vintage items and hope I meet someone who doesn't know the value of what they have! I scored new Be still pants at one point, in organic cotton for $75 including shipping and they are gorgeous!! Just be careful of sellers who don't know....what sizes they are selling.....bec. The hang tag fell off. Ive been "duped" by a few eBay sellers who claimed they "thought" it was either a 4 or a 6. When buying pants, buying the wrong size, can be a deal breaker! make sure you are buying from a seller with high ratings. I miss the old Lulu...
@ anon 12:10 am - Did you get your Post Restorative pants yet and try them on? My Feel Good pants are my favorite sweat pants. I was wondering whether they fit and feel the same.
I received the post restorative sweatpants yesterday and LOVE them. They are identical in feel to the pleasing pants and sized similarly, except its much shorter (which is perfect for me as i'm 5' 3"). They are so comfortable. I want more, and am hoping they might go on markdown so I can stock up.
