More of the Latest



I am kind of digging the tri-tone Dune/Bleached Coral/Black Surf Studio Jacket with the matching Bleached Coral Grooves. It will certainly be a stand-out outfit at your studio or gym. The Mellow Lemon Studio Pants are not doing it for me at all. Shown with a Rejuvenate hoodie.

I'd really like the yellow pants if they had a liner. Such a great color - but so see through.

These girls are not big at all but what they are wearing seemed to be a size too small. It's suffocating just looking at them!

So many pants these days at LLL you can only wear commando, and only if you're blond. Yikes...

I went to my local store and was so shocked about cheap everything felt and looked. So disappointing but good for my wallet, I guess.

the pink colorblocking on that jacket appears designed to emphasize back fat.

Everything on the girl in the pink pants is way too small. These photos aren't very flattering...

They look like they are in nurses scrubs!

Agree, in the pink that jacket is far too tight and some obvious ct going on in the pant too

Love Studio Pants but these ones look like hospital scrubs

Ordered the Groove Pant (new) from wmtm on the Canadian site. Black Swan Rasperry Glo. Going to have to get them hemmed since it's the tall version. It's a gamble since the reviews of the new Grooves are mixed. I do love Black Swan though. I considered ordering the Devotion l/s, pretty good md price but admitted it would have been an impulse buy.

Do you know the name of the bag the girl in the bottom picture is holding?

Went to store to try on the coral/dune/black scuba and I love the color combo. The length is good for me now since they made it longer. Have not bought a scuba in a long time. However, the bleach coral section on the scuba is different than the bleach coral from tanks (power Y, CRB, others that were there). I tried on 4 different tanks under the scuba and the color does not match exactly. The coral on the scuba is more faded and dull, ike its been washed many times. Whereas the coral on the tank is light and fresh, if that makes sense. The zipper on the scuba is the lighter and brighter coral (like the tank). You could still wear the coral underneath, it will be a shade off.

I have not liked those bleached coral grooves on anyone, they just aren't flattering.

@anon 9:35 I totally agree! The last photo especially. Very unflattering.

correction: second to last photo, the one of them walking away together. Back rolls, cheek smiles... blech.

I think the inkwell, dune, and mellow lemon is a cute color combo, but not with mellow lemon on the pants. Crops maybe, but the pants are too much.

I agree that the clothes on the ladies are too tight. it is the mindset where people say they are a certain size and stick to it instead of not focusing on the number but the fit. I am a 6/8 in tops and 4/6 on the bottoms at lulu. it depends on the item.

Is it wrong that I kinda want the mellow yellow studio pants? They would work if I put shorts under them and be easy to take off for yoga as it gets a little warmer here in the Northeast.

I agree that some of the models need to size up, especially in the tops. You can see the outline of her bra in the Surf Studio jacket.

And here I was, thinking those girls looked cute! Gosh, I wish I were that "fat." Why are women so hard on each other??

I think both girls look so cute . The clothes fit them perfectly.

If you look at picture showing rear view of ladies behind, you can see the models in coral Grove underpants. You have to wonder why Lulu has not come out with alot of grey pants of late. Last year I bought tons of grey this year none.

Sadly I've gained a couple of pounds and look like the girl in the pink pants I think.Squeeezed in sausage casing I think,hopefully can run it off soon.

This is OT but I just received my Run: Rise and Shine pullover (bleached coral). I LOVE it! It fits great (TTS) and it is soft. It will be perfect for spring running. It's a lighter weight rulu than the winter run items but it's really soft and nice.

So many rude comments... How about sticking to comments about the clothing in general and not what you think of their appearance on a particular person...

Anonymous said...

WOW ! SO RUDE OF YOU Anon.@ 11:53 ! Both girls are far from fat. If you look like a sausage that's your problem but don't take it out of the Eds who do us a favor and take pictures of the new clothing. They lok fabulous. It's the clothes that are not that great. Nothing I would want to buy. But these girls are lovely !

Calm down people and yes, women should be nice to each other but for some reason our own gender makes it harder on each other!

I agree with the observation that the girl in the pink is in too tight a size. Not saying she's fat, just that a size up in the jacket in particular would be more flattering. If this was me and I was going to purchase, I would want a friend or educator to give sound advice on sizing and fit.

I believe there is no body ideal! Taking care of yourself in many ways is what counts. Women all over the world come in many shapes and sizes and hence, countless forms of beauty!

i think the clothes on the dune/colorblocked model might actually be her size. i'm petite and if i try to size up things look ridiculous (loose calves/too low cut/baggy shoulders/extremely long sleeves etc.) even though i'm not super slender. the main problem is that the clothes are so cheap and flimsy they don't smooth her out where they should. a thick stretchy fabric, like the old defines, show less bulges. yeah, those yellow pants are just obscene. i'm afraid to buy anything online since they introduced the new return process (they've lost a NLT, don't refund for shipping when I pay for my own shipping, take 3 weeks to process etc.) and my nearest "big" lulu is 3.5 hours away so that means i'm not buying lulu.

I go to my local LLL often and many times when I was in the fitting room trying on clothes, I noticed some of the educators also try on clothes for themselves. I guess it's good if they know the fit of the clothes they are selling but I also find it a little unprofessional to be doing that with the customers. I also notice some of them putting on items from the racks on themselves to walk around/work, then hang them back to sell. Eventhough they didn't "workout" in the clothes, I still don't like the idea of buying something that has been "worn".

Marlies said...

I really want that Surf Studio jacket! But at $149??? Someone needs to smack me!

But it's so pretty!!! And I LOVE those colors together!!! Wahhhhhhhhhh!!! :-)

All the ladies pictured in these posts (and all blog posts) are all lovely, and varying shapes and sizes. The point that was being made earlier is simply that we all need to wear a size that is flattering to our unique shapes, and many, quite simply, don't take advantage of a larger or smaller size that will flatter them.

Anonymous said...

@7:59 that is what most of the ladies in the photos on this blog are doing. That is the reason you should wash before wearing. I'm in NYC and my local store is always packed with people trying stuff on. who knows how many people tried the last pair of boogie shorts I bought.
That's why they went in the wash right away.

How ugly that is, when people start critisizing in here,how the educators/models wear lululemon clothes. Keep your opinion to yourself! Care about how the clothes you buy fit you, and let the rest of the world wear whatever size they want to. Unless you are paying for their clothes, how tight or not their garments fit them, should be none of your business.
These two girls are young, fit and beautiul and they look fantastic in whatever size they chose to wear.

Seattlite said...

Keep in mind that educators want to know exactly how things move, feel, stretch, scratch, etc. so that they can confidently suggest items to the array of customers they see.

Wash before wear. It's that simple. I appreciate an educator walking around in a new item for an hour to just see how it feels/fits.. Or would you rather trust their opinion based on guesses? "Does this pant tend to ride up" would be a question I might ask an educator. How do you expect them to respond if they aren't trying EVERYTHING? I want to hear "Heck no!" or "A little, but if that's your concern try... "
It's not like they can buy every single item in every single color and size.

Also, while I agree that the groove pant could have been a size up in these pictures, sometimes it's about how you feel in it. Maybe the size up fit her legs, but was too big in the hips. We don't know. We're not her. Ultimately, WHO CARES?! This blog is here and these pictures are sent to LLA so that WE have an easier time buying, not to be snarky and judgmental about how someone is dressed. I appreciate all these people putting themselves in the public eye of this blog to be scrutinized. I hope they aren't discouraged and hurt by some of the comments here. I appreciate you, ladies!

When the educators model LLL clothes, they are representing the company, the clothes and the designs. Not all designs are for every body shape, but when the educators put on ill-fitted clothes due to wrong sizing (and not bad designs), that's the problem. Their job is to put LLL clothes in the best light, not the opposite. To those who got so angry about people discussing how the clothes didn't fit right - CHILL. People are not attacking the girls' body/shape/size, they are simply commenting on how bad the clothes looked when the sizing is wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with talking about that.
The educators not picking the right size for themselves will actually affect their recommendations to customers. Many times the educators at my store would recommend a smaller size for me just for the "fitted" look and not for comfort/function. When I was shopping for the DHBH, the educator suggested a 6 (I am a 8 on all LLL tops) but actually said I should go for a 4 because she likes tighter clothes on herself and the more fitted-look "looks" better on me eventho I wasn't able to move comfortably. So, it does matter how the educators pick their own sizes.

While I agree that the educators should try on items so they can make recommendations, I don't think that it is ok for them to wear clothes that are meant for sale, while they work in the store. Don't we all perspire or have body odor/scent without realizing it? I am sure it is not an uncommon practice, but if I don't see it, then I will not have a problem with it. To me, if the item had been worn, stretched, sat on, walked in, etc, then it's worn. I usually order online since there is no store near me - I just assumed there is less chance of worn items that came directly from the warehouse, but definitely wash before wearing!

Always wash before wearing. there are remnants from the manufacturer, shipping, place where the item is stored, chemicals that are added to keep pests away from the garment, plus human handling and wearing.
wash or rinse
