Has anyone tried on the purple v-neck SS swiftly? I saw a comment that someone thought it was longer than the other ones... is that true?? Just wondering because I'm 5'3'', and I don't like to have a ton of extra fabric around my waist...
Thanks!

Horizontal stripes on a guy are just terrible. The shirt is see-through too, so you can only imagine what will happen when it gets sweaty.

yuck yuck yuck.

I tried the new mod moves tank and crops today. I thought both were very sheer (you could clearly see my stomach muscles through the shirt and my bra!) The tank had this weird extra swifty fabric attached to the bottom, quite odd looking on me (I am short, but still). Not flattering. The crops I tried on were black. I had VPL and you could see through the fabric. Not much in the store now to like. Hubby was amazed and thrilled I walked out empty handed!

Mini fit report!


So I tried the new ebb and flow racer back and it is by far my new favorite tank. It is a bit snug I thought so I did size up but I ended up leaving the store with all three colors! Its shorter than a regular racerback but i don't mind that even though im 5"11... Bear in mind the aquamarine is a touch sheer.
I tend to stay away from colors but I just love this tank. I did a power yoga class today and it was super comfortable and overall great!
Just for size reference I am usually a 4-6 but went with the 8.


Also in my local store those hot hitter skirts were leaving like hotcakes. I kept seeing people trying them when i was in the change room on (so I did too). I ended up getting one because it felt really flattering and I don't even play tennis. Guess I'm going to have to dust off my racket.

The mod moves tank I wanted to love but as I said I'm quite tall and the bottom part hit me at a weird spot so I left that in the store.

That's really all I was interested in this week. I'll come back for a zippy green crb and the soot NLT when it arrives in store.

Really like the new waist on the Inspires. Really cute!

I am loving my ivivva swiftly-alike! It is definitely thicker than the lulu swiftly (which is fine by me living in Canada) but I think a bit less snag prone. Shorter in length though so can ride up a bit. And the spry blue colour is just so stinking cute! It is almost heathered but still bright.

Also, ivivva now came out with the lakeside scarf last night (similar to the clarity scarf) in pinkelicious and aquamarine, but it is in pima cotton, not vitasea... wonder what it feels like?

Question: do any of you wear lulu crops for les mills classes- particularly Pump and Attack? Any recommendations?

That peacock color is awesome. Why can't we get that on the women's side? I would have bought several items in a color like that.

Does anyone have a fit review of the hot hitter skirt? True to size? Thanks.

Has anyone tried on the white clam diggers? I really wanted a pair of white crops last year, but the only ones I could find were sheeeeeear. These look actually pretty good in the web pics and these pics. ... and now I just ordered them online anyway :P

A quick fit review: just got the purple ebb and flow crops. I sized up from 4 to 6 and could tell very little difference in fit. I won't wear them with patterned undies but the sheerness wasn't a big problem like it was with the pink. The power purple wunder unders were also cute and not sheer on me in size 4.

I am biased to like anything in purple though so take my review with a grain of salt :)

@9:44 PM Does the ebb and flow racer back hurt your neck? I am interested in this tank too but I recall ppl complained about the ebb and flow racer bra hurting the back of the neck. Thanks!

Thanks for the heads up on the Ivivva. I'm def. going to be getting some swiftly look alikes and for $34.

@ 8:04 PM, wow harsh much? God forbid this fit man, who looks good in this outfit, works up a sweat and that it shows. He is clearly in shape, not an overly hairy guy and can pull off this tank. I myself am a woman and yes, I get sweaty when I run and do hot yoga. So if I happen to be wearing my white (or other light colored) CRB (with a Y bra and dark colored bottoms) and due to sweatiness people end up seeing the impression of my ripped abs and strong back: deal with it.

I have a beef with the colors of the Pace Setter skirts. Don't get me wrong, I own several so I love the style. But the designers must be quite dim because they re-release colors that came out just last year, when they could have made it in other colors. We are talking about the exact same style here. For instance, the Aquamarine was out last year and just recently. Now the Power Purple is out again. But I already have one that I bought last year. I really wanted a yellow or green one for spring, but the only one they put out was the Faded Zap with the weird patterned dots.

Why wouldn't they make it in new colors, so that those of us who already bought previously released colors can add to our collections? That is more money in your pockets Lulu! Instead, you lost 2 sales right here because I already have Aquamarine & Power Purple. Does this lack of business sense from the company and lack of options for the buyer bother anyone else, or am I the only one?

I tried on the Club Shorts they are not sheer in fact the quality is really good, however I found them to be too heavy for golf, or for running errands. They are a slim fit I had to size up.

The mens line is really nice saturated colors, the womens is just meh.

The Hot Hitter skirt seemed to run TTS. I tried it on yesterday, and it was the same size I wear in the Pace setter skirt (4). I sized down for the Pace skirt (2). I am 5' 102 lbs. for reference. The Hot Hitter skirt was cute, but too much fabric for running. It reminded me of a figure skater's skirt. It did have a zippered pocket on the side as well as another open pocket on the back.

Ah weird, wmtm Canadian site now has the Open Soul Tank in many colours and all sizes. It was previously not there (or in regular section). Also 3 colours of the Practice Freely Tank in all sizes (except Frond version is sold out in some) when last week the Dune version had limited sizes and sold out quickly in wmtm.

I wanted to leave a review (V neck swiftly SS) here in case Lululemon don't publish it - they didn't with my last two (both negative, but true!). I rewrote it today so hopefully it goes up on the site anyway. I hope this is okay to share here.

I wrote a review more than a fortnight ago, including photos, that has not been published. Nor has the review I wrote on the new Groove pants (sheer and awful in comparison to the old Grooves I wore to compare). Which is incredibly irritating. I was excited to receive this top as a gift from a friend who visited America recently. The fit is lovely, and the pink colour is cute, although maybe a bit brighter in real life. However, after wearing this top ONCE on a WALK I noticed a hole in it (it wasn't a bush walk, literally a stroll around the block). I wore it into a Lululemon where I was told by the shop assistant that she 'didn't notice it, if that makes you feel better'. I wasn't offered any help or advice. The material doesn't lend itself to being mended, and I'm too terrified to wear it incase it gets any bigger. It's just sitting in a drawer - it may as well be in the bin. I've been such a loyal customer, have spent so much money on Lulu, haven't bought any other brand of work out gear because in my mind it didn't compare without the Lulu symbol plastered everywhere. But I'm ready to leave (along with so many others who already have). I could find higher quality (and less cheesy) stuff at Big W.

anon @ 8:05 am...I wear Groove crops and Wunder Unders for Les Mills classes (Pump and Step). Mind you, I wear OLD versions of these so they aren't see through. I would think that it wouldn't be a good idea to bend-over in the latest sheer versions that have been out lately. I am not a huge fan of luxtreme crops, but I think that is because I never tried them before they got so terribly thin!

Shorts are good for those classes as well, provided they have the liner in them. Every now and then someone wears a running skirt to class and I always think it looks funny as they are laying on their back and the skirt is completely up at their waist.. Obviously they are covered up--I just think there are better choices to wear for those types of classes if you are going to be in compromising positions.

Anyone seen the street to studio jackets on sale?

I disagree with you, @8:04. The stripe tank looks smokin' hot on that guy. I hope you were just making a generalization based on your dislike for horizontal stripes and not on the guy.

I was wondering if anyone has tried out the boogie shorts? Are they sheer? I have my eye on the reversible pair in power purple and aqua marine and I'm wondering if becasue they're reversible are the thicker/less sheer? Thanks!

9:27 most of the light colored boogie shorts in the past few months and especially the reversible ones are sheer. If you have a bootie they will show even more.
