Upload!


Some interesting new items were uploaded (late) tonight but the only ones I really like are the Runbeam LS and the Mod Waves Cool Racerback. I didn't get either of these tonight because I am hoping for different colors in both of them. I would have also liked a Cool Breeze Swiftly tank but that wasn't uploaded either. I know a lot of people were waiting for the Multi Groovy Striped CRB and Energy bra but neither of those were uploaded. I've decided to pass on both of those.

The Track and Train tank reminds me of last years's Top Speed tank. I bought one of those last year and am super curious to try this new version on.

I am also curious to see the new Amped Tank in person. It's hard to tell from the photos which is the luxtreme portion and which is the swift. I think the entire outer shell is swift but I could be wrong.

Nothing for me tonight, not even a headband. I've decided to pass on the Pizazz (too bright) and Raspberry Glo (bleeder) bangbusters.  What did you all get?

PEDRO FOR CEO?

really, they wasted money producing these shirts?

I just ordered the Multi Striped All Sport Bra. I already picked up the Multi Striped CRB from my local store but didn't get the Energy bra because they were out of my size there. I also tried on the new swim line, I thought the pink stripes top was cute but the straps were too thin. A wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen...

@ Eric - I know. Way to be current, too.

Only the Track and Train tank in the nimbus stripe thingy. Hopefully the fit is better than last year's Top Speed tank. If it is, then it will go back...

Pedro for CEO? Am I missing something?

Nothing for me. Very disappointed in LLL, still! Originally wanted the wrap and the new suits, but the suit looks like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen and the wrap looks much cheaper than its $118 price tag.

I really want Spry items! Any idea when they will be out?

i want the multi groove stripe in an energy bra! now i have to stalk my store for it

They had time to make these T-shirts? I wonder how long have they known...

Has anyone tried out the new Zen crops? Are they soft? Sheer? And how long are they? I'm 5'4 and am hoping they don't come to my ankles like my Root Chakra's. I'm very curious about them because I really want some new black crops & one color waistband has already sold out in size 4. I almost ordered them but I just stuck with the Black/Rasberry Glo Lite NLT, Soot Twiggy Print/White waistband Black Groove Shorts & both the Rasperry Glo Lite & Pizzaz Bangbusters for now.

I actually bought a lot this time... mostly just to try it on though. I got the multi striped all sport bra, the nimbus stripe energy bra, track and train tank in groovy stripe nimbus, mod moves singlet in orange, voyage hoodie in cool breeze, and ta ta topper in black/groovy stripe. I'm pretty sure not everything will work for me (from reading reviews, especially unsure of the mod moves tank), but I thought it all looked cute and I want to try it on first. I'm hoping the stripe placement might be different with different size 6's for the energy bra, b/c I bought it last week and the one I got is mostly the nimbus color, and I'm hoping this new one I ordered with have more gray in it!

The new amped tank has a built in bra just like the NLT. Its super fiddly to get into with the extra back panel of fabric but looks great on. The fabric on the body doesnt have a lot of stretch in it from what I remember. Really different feel to a NLT. Hope that helps:)

This is getting annoying. I'm in Canada and have been waiting two weeks for the All Sport bra in the groovy multi and the Energy bra in the cool breeze and still nothing.

I don't know if lulu is doing this thing where one country gets it and the other doesn't because they think people will get more excited while waiting for it. Personally, it makes me second guess my purchases and be like, hmmm maybe I don't really need that.

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me. Not even the pizzaz CRB as I think it very trafficky.

Pedro shirt...I don't know why they think this is so clever for them to use it. (BTW their posting for a CEO is really just snark.) Apparently most people love this shirt as it is sold out already. Some crazy people are going to put in on eBay and even crazier people are going to pay some ridiculous price.

I got the Play All Day Shorts in cool breeze, power purple and black. Sounds like complete overkill, but these look like my favorite from a few years ago (?) the Play in the Sun shorts. I regretted not getting those in every color made. I also got the triangle bikini top and hipster bottom in the multi print.

I have a LLL triangle bikini from last year and it is so cute. I have a 34 DD chest and triangle tops aren't supportive for any activity, but they do help to minimize extreme boobage. A halter top, while supportive, just pushes them up and out and I look like Pamela Anderson. Actually, I wore a halter top, and upon seeing my chest, my Mom just said, "Jesus."

The Sport Top bikini looks cute, but I think it would be VERY low cut in the front for larger chests. I think I would look obnoxious in that.

This was an expensive week for me. And, that is coming off of a week when I snagged the Sun to Savasana duffel. Dang that is a cute and highly functional bag, but the price was outrageous. It's the first new gym bag that I've bought in ages, and I know that I will use the heck out of it.

I would love a new pair of WU crops but sadly, I wont be partaking until they get the sheerness issue corrected. I did get the charcoal ones, but I can't see myself wearing those to workout in for fear of being called Captain Pee Pee Pants.

I am wondering if there is anyway to wrap up the Blissed Out Wrap, After all they call it a wrap but all the pictures on the site are of it hanging open?

does soot amped crop show sweat, do you think?

Janet said...

I ordered the MG Stripe all sport bra. Almost ordered the Mod waves CRB but removed it from my cart at the last second. Will probably try it in-store if I can. Somehow I haven't bought a PP tank yet, but I tend to be reaching for my swiftlys most often now that it's warm out. If its like a CRB but with mesh (looks like the side and back is all mesh and the front is Luon light?), this might be a winner.

My power y MG Stripe and CRB nimbus stripe arrived this weekend. I like the CRB and was planning to keep it until all these other nimbus stripe tanks were released in this upload. I'll have to decide which one I want most. I like the power y, but am probably going to see if I can find better stripe placement in-store.

May try and stop by there today. Not overly thrilled with these latest offerings, but sometimes you don't know til you try stuff on. The Bliss dress looks like an ill fitting hawt mess.

There's supposedly an Ivavva store near the mall, maybe I'll check that out too (I am small, can wear a kids large or extra large (have scored some great deals at REI, Nordy's and JCrew kids departments before). I have to say, I've been saving a lot of money lately not buying stuff at Lulu!

Anonymous said...

OT - Is there a LLL outlet in So Cal? Visiting the area and hoping to find some great markdowns. :)

Anonymous said...

Awful. Absolutely awful. So many products uploaded and I am not buying ANYTHING. These colors are terrible. I am tired of purple and color blocking!!!! Items look cheap in the pictures...like something I could pick up at Kmart.
And can someone please school me on why the Amped tank has what appears to be a cumberband on the back of the top????!!! The white Amped tank is clearly completely see through. I'm sure the raspberry glo will bleed onto anything it comes into contact with in no time. I am completely puzzled by the design of this top. It's weird.
The Blissed Out Wrap is nice, but nothing special at that price point!
Where are the deep, vibrant jewel tones? There are no interesting blues. None of this stuff is worth the original price.
If this stuff doesn't start improving, LuLu won't be getting any more $ from me. Not even final sale purchases!

What do people think of the blissed out wrap who have tried it on?!

Anonymous said...

Sneak peek! 1) SS top on Harmony Headbands (second pic), 2) Tank and thick strapped bra on Harmony, BB, and Sun Chaser Visor. :)

Liking the Track & Train tank! Waiting for vibrant colors. The reason I didn't buy the similar tank in the fall was that it was not available in fun colors. Maybe the sneak peek bra is similar to the Spinerette Bra? Didn't buy for same reason.

I wanted the multi stripe crb, they are sold out at my store. Got the all sport bra to try.

Anonymous said...

Ordered the inspires with pink purple orange waist and my first ever no limits tank in ras glo and black. Really hoping I love it and fits well. Some tanks I need 2 in but smallest size is 4. Wanted the ras glo bangbuster but I too am afraid it will bleed all over my blonde hair. Not worth the risk. Really wanted the wrap but $118-are they insane?

Hi all- hoping for some bra help. My mom is getting into running (yay for her!), and I think she needs a great bra. She's petite, but has giant (for her frame) breasts- 34D.
Any thoughts on what might work for her?
I'm exactly the opposite- 32A- so I have no idea. I can run in only band-aids. Ha! I appreciate the help!

Thought people would get a laugh outta this.. The other day I had on my voyager hoodie w jeans (I'm 29) my husband says " you look cute! But.. You look like your in high school" haha! LLL is an age rewinder

Realllly disappointed I missed out on the black summer quilt inspire crops.. give me a break, sold out by 8AM?? Maybe they will come in a WUC but I would have preferred the inspires. Nothing for me this week.

luluFemom said...

Quick try-on report: Hip to be Zen crops. Great TTS fit, great rise, opaque in full squat...but not for petites. :( I'm 5'3" and they were basically 7/8 lengths on me - if I hemmed them to Groove Crop length they would've lost all the flare at the bottom. It's really too bad lulu hasn't figured out the petite market, because these would be the first black Luon I've been excited about it a long time.

LuluAddict said...

@anon 7:48 am - I am a 36DD and like the Ta Ta Tamer. If you cross the straps you can use the TTT to wear under racerback tanks. It's a bit tricky to get into - I usually fasten the back high on my chest and then lift the girls into the cups - but I've stopped running in any other bra.

LuluAddict said...

@luluFemon - Lululemon leaves a lot of money on the table by not catering to petites. I have two friends who are very well off and are big Athleta fans because of their petite pants.

I am petite and lulu works great for me. The crops seem to fit me the best.
I am 5'-3" and fluctuate from 116 to 120.

Am I missing something entirely or is the Pedro for CEO thing a reference to Napoleon Dynamite? I'm really hoping I am missing the joke and that's not it...

Anonymous said...

LLA, you mentioned you are a size 36 DD...do you get the same size in your TTT?
I just got a TTT a few days ago and got a 34 DD size but I am not sure what my true size is since I am nursing and my breast are GIANT right now. I was kind of spilling out of the top but the band fit great and it was a life saver for getting back to running (while nursing).
I want to order the All SPORT but I don't know what size to get?? I am currently wearing between a size 6 and 8 in LLL... I heard this bra runs small so should I order a 10?

Anonymous said...

just the pizzaz CRB for me. It's really bright, but i like it. It will look cute with a contrasting bra color:)

was really hoping for the multi groovy stripe CRB or energy bra:( sigh.

@anon 7:48 I am petite but a 32DDD at VS and love the energy bra. Cute but supportive.

I just left my local store and tried on the Blissed out wrap. The cool breeze color is really pretty - a pale lilac. I really wanted to love the wrap but there's just too much fabric. Since there are no snaps, it just kind of hangs down. It looks better when styled or closed up, but left open it just looks sloppy. Even the ed agreed with me. It is a size down item though - I'm usually a 6 in all Lulu tops and the 4 was plenty fine in this wrap.

Blissed Out Wrap almost sold out in all sizes in Cool Breeze. Insanity. I ordered one just in case. Hope this sucker has a way to close in front for $118. I am clearly nuts.

Anon 6:50am- The tank is the new Run: Featherweight Singlet in Spry Blue on the AUS site. The bra I believe is an All-Sport

Anonymous said...

No outlet here :( NorCal has one in Gilroy.

Luli Designs said...

Anon 6:50 am - I am pretty sure the 1)SS top on Harmony Headbands photos is the mesh burn out white Drish Tee.
and 2)Thick strapped bra on Harmony, BB, and Sun Chaser Visor is the White All Sport Bra but I am not sure what the tank is so that could be a new.

I bought the Beach Break Sport Top and both the Trunkette and Hipster just to see how it fits. The top looks like it will probably be very low cut which means it will go back but I didn't want to miss out on something I like this time.

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me for the first time in awhile. I'm holding out for Spry Blue and hopefully some red. I like how LLL has changed things up and deviated from the typical Inspire waistband style. Now if they could thicken up the Luxtreme a bit and go back to using Circle Mesh on the panels, I would be totally happy!

I have never found TTT's to be supportive enough for running, I'm a 36 c.

I love love love my Underarmour front zip bra for running. My babies do not move an inch in that bra!

I'm also 5 feet tall and would absolutely love petite choices for pants. You can hem some, but not others. I remember when the bike commuter pants came out I wanted a pair so bad but they couldn't be hemmed.

To Anon at 7:48, I am an avid runner (ran Boston in April and just did a half this weekend). I love the TaTa Tamer Bra. It supports the girls great without mashing them down into a uniboob. I am a 32D. My SIL who also is a runner and 32DD also loves this bra. The support is great, it comes in real bra sizes, the straps are adjustable, you can criss cross the straps for more support, and best of all, there are 4 columns of 3 rows of eyes and a column of 3 hooks to ensure a perfect and secure fit. This bra is so easy to take off under your shirt if fastened in the traditional method (perfect for all those sweaty runs where you need to discretely remove a cold, wet bra post run). It is my favorite running bra ever. Before I use to wear Lulu, I had pretty good luck with CW-X brand bras (I think you can buy these online on Road Runner Sports or Amazon). They worked fairly well, but I did have some chafing issues with those from time to time, I don't chafe in the TaTa Tamer. They are more expensive, but in my opinion, they are worth every penny! You do not want to skimp on support! I only wear the pad inserts during the winter when it's cold. They are great at hiding the headlights.

Dying for a try on report of the amped crop!!

Anonymous said...

I tried on the bliss wrap and actually liked it more than I expected but the sleeves were too tight for my taste. The fabric was very cozy but there was too much of it and the shawl collar/hood was not working for me. A lot of potential but not right for me. Hope this helps!

on another note I told myself the groovy print was too young looking but then ended up leaving with the CRB! It is so cute on - I am still debating because I don't want it if it's going to be a bleeder...

Tried on the Blissed Out Wrap today...looked like a short, thick bathrobe!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:49 am - The TTT is pretty close to real bra sizes. I get either the 38D or 36DD TTT depending on how they fit. I've found they vary a little. I used to buy Champion Powerback underwire bras and I think those were 38DD but those are known to run small. I also used to buy Dona Karan underwire bra in the 36DD.

The All Sport is snug fitting and I wouldn't say it runs small. I get the same size as most other tanks - a 12. I'd go by the chest measurements in the size chart.

Decided to pull the trigger on the Groovy multi stripe free to be bra. I normally prefer energy or all sport bras but I decided to get this one because I really like the pattern on the straps which you don't see on the energy or all sport. Hoping for a good stripe distribution!

Product notification from Robson St. Vancouver.

1. Power Y in Groovy Stripe Nimbus
2.In the Flow crop in Pinkelicious
3. CRB in Groovy Stripe Multi
4. Scuba Hoodie Stripe in Twin Stripe Black, looks interesting.

Was bummed that the Scoop Me Up tank in the Twin Stripe Black was not uploaded. :(

It does not close:( saw it today and thought it was a little sloppy but that is just my opinion.

@ 8:47 AM yes it's a reference to Napoleon Dynamite. Even the picture of the model wearing the CRB has a side ponytail.

LLL is dumb.

Would love to see a review of the Mod Moves CRB! The color is lovely and excited about the technical fabric.

Store report:

- The Play All Day shorts are awesome! Stayed TTS, even though I initially thought they were snug. Wore them around the house for several hours this afternoon and the material definitely relaxed.
- Wanted to love the Blissed Out Dress, but it just fit my body too awkward. The top is too loose and the bottom is too tight. I'm normally a 4 for tops and bottoms, so I think this particular design just doesn't work for me.
- Picked up the Groovy Stripe Multi Free To Be bra. Every single bra in every single size had a completely different pattern. I finally had to settle on a not-quite-perfect placement. The addict in me wants to keep hunting for the one... ::sigh::

I highly recommend the tata tamer. I also run, sail, lift weights, hike etc. in the ttt and I am busty 34d dd.
it works great with no bounce or discomfort. best bra for sports I have ever purchased I own a few of them and I keep buying them and saving them in case their production stops. I also love the energy bra.
