NEW! Midnight Iris Work It Out Duffel, Journey Crop, Right As Rain Jacket, and More





Gorgeous new Midnight Iris Print Work It Out Duffel. This is really calling to me. I don't know if I can resist it.


New mesh-backed luon Journey Crop. I love the Mod Waves Cool Racerback with the mesh back and I bet these feel super nice. Also shown is the new Nice Asana Jacket in plum.


Two more photos of the new Plum Nice Asana Jacket. Ugh, When a jacket gets this long I wish it had a two-way zipper.







The Right As Rain jackets are back in Plum, Inkwell, and Black.


Plum Energy bra and Midnight Iris Wunder Under crops. The new Energy bras are in the stores. I hope Plum is uploaded tonight because I want it.

Plum Stuff Your Bra tank and In the Flow crops. I tried this tank on last week. I think it fit TTS though I found the armholes exposed a little more armpit fat than I liked.


Midnight Iris Forme Jacket, Track to Reality Pant, and Studio Softshell. I tried on the Track to Realitys last week. I thought they fit TTS but the legs are on the slim side so if you have thicker legs you might want to size up. They are lined and so I found them warm for this time of year in my area but they seemed like decent warm up pants.




New quilted waistband in Wunder Unders.

Living in California I have no use for the Right as Rain Jacket, however, when I visited Vancouver in June of this year I noticed SO many people sport this jacket on drizzly days. It was the one lulu item that I saw everywhere... really quite funny and unexpected:).

is the right as rain jacket water resistant or waterproof? Thanks!

Pretty waistband! What color are those WU in the last photo, I wonder?

Freber said...

Hmmm....is it just me or do those wunder unders look pretty see through on the woman with her legs in the air? I hope Lulu has gotten their sheerness issues under control by now.

Those Iris Wunder Unders are horrible. You can see straight through to the girl in the headstand's bum! WOW.

Chelsea said...

Are those midnight iris WUs super sheer or is it just me?!

Anonymous said...

Super Sheer! However maybe she just bought the wrong size. LOL!

Anonymous said...

I was thinking the same thing. Can't tell if it's sheerness or bad photography.

Anonymous said...

lol I was just about to ask if they looked sheer! I guess they are if we are all noticing it!

are the wunder unders with teh quilted waistband better quality?

I was in Dallas this weekend & visited the Northpark store. Every single pair of pants I tried on had some level of sheerness, except the Run For Your Life. With the inspires, sizing up would fix it, but with others, like the In The Flow crops, my mom could read the tag through the pants. That's pretty bad! I did buy some more Mod moves crops since I know those aren't sheer on me. In full disclosure, I am still up about 20 lbs after having my baby, but none of my pre-pregnancy Lulu is sheer!

I purchased the plum Energy Bra last week. Wore it today for the first time and felt it ran small compared to the other Energy Bras I had. If I hadn't already ripped off the tags I may have returned it. I am a size 10 and have at least 7 other Energy Bras and this was at least one size smaller than the others.

OT- I just wore my luxtreme WUC for the first time today and noticed that there is no size circle in the pocket. I hope this isn't a new trend, because basically there is no way to show the size after you take off the tags which makes selling old stuff on eBay harder...

Anonymous said...

wow, those iris WUC are so so sheer. You can even see a touch a sheerness on the knew of the girl sitting down, and I don't think I need to mention the sheerness on the bum. Wow. Lulu really knows how to ruin a good thing.

ewe I am so over that iris print already, super fugly imo and those jackets are ugly toboot!!! am so tired of the drabness! there are some cute sweat pants I like on the website however might try those? hum? am waiting for a new color that isn't exactly like a color just done recently does anyone else feel like that too?

The Facetious Librarian said...

I tried on the midnight iris WUCs today in a store and they didn't even come close to passing the forward fold test! So sad, because I really love the print...but that white tag was VERY visible.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 2:53 pm - Lululemon is supposedly working on a new style size dot but for now there isn't one in the clothes, which sucks.

Mandy said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my right as rain jacket. I wear it almost everyday in the spring and fall. I would wear it instead of an umbrella. I don't know if it's "waterproof" but I think it's pretty darn water resistant. :)

Dewa said...

Can anyone comment on the quality of the right as rain jacket? I'm in need of a piece like this. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I thought the same thing.

Anyone try on the high wait wunder unders yet? Just wanting to know if they are tts. I dont live near any lulu stores and would love to buy some plum ones tonight before they are sold out. Thanks in advance!

CJ said...

I bought a new Free to Be bra a week or so ago and it had the new size dot. It's grey with white numbers on the top and bottom, the size in the middle and a white border.

I also noticed my recent Speed Shorts and Inspires didn't have a dot either... I wish they had them!

Anonymous said...

Uh, yeah those Iris WU's look sheer. I guess the real reason Lulu made those new pants with the sheer mesh panels (that look like club wear) is to distract us from the fact they have not fixed the see-through bottoms. Not very transparent of them!

I just bought the new Dharana crops and they are not sheer at all. My bathroom scale told me yesterday that I had a VERY good summer and gained 7 lbs. Even with my weight gain nothing is on display and I bent and tested from every angle in the fitting room and at home in front of my husband.

My Plum Energy bra is on the small side too--I definitely could have taken an 8 rather than my usual 6. And I also tore off the tags and washed it before noticing, dang it!

Luli Designs said...

I really like the outfit on the woman with the plum track to reality pant and black soft shell jacket. Is she wearing something under the track to reality pant because I see some black fabric at her ankle?

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 3:57 pm - son of a gun. I've lost some inches in my chest so was all ready to size down to get the Plum Energy and now this throws a monkey wrench in what I was going to order.

Anonymous said...

So it's not my imagination! I bought the plum and the iris and wrote it off as it being that time of the month! Lol!

Anonymous said...

No plum free to be bra? CRB? :(

I am so disappointed in the iris WU. The sheerness is obvious in the photo (comparing the legs' opacity to the bum) I wanted a pair so badly! Why bother releasing fun new prints/colours if you can't get the most basic thing straight. SIGHH. Is lululemon even working on fixing this? Wtf happened to the "FULL ON LUON" (aka normal pre-sheerness disaster luon)... Aren't they supposed to be making all pants/crops in this material? This makes me so angry.

The Facetious Librarian said...

To the person who made the comment about the tech mesh tights - I tried those on in soot and surprisingly they were NOT see-through! I would have gone home with a pair had they had my size in black!

Anonymous said...

i, too, would like to hear more about people's experience with the right as rain jacket, both in terms of water resistance and breathability. and fit, for that matter. looks like a perfect jacket. thanks to those who already posted! also, is there a price yet? thanks!

Jamie Barba said...

Of course, that's one of the only ones I didn't try on. Guess I should have!!

Anonymous said...

I definitely had to size up for the Plum energy bra. Held it up to my others in a 6, and the plum 6 looks like a 4, so my two cents is to size up unless you like your bra super snug. hope that helps :) this blog is amazing

Mandy said...

I'd say that my RAR jacket (circa 2011) fits TTS. I'm a 4/6 in tops and i got it in a 4. I can wear long sleeve shirts and hoodies under it no problem and not feel constricted. I think the quality is fantastic and I believe i paid $189?
That being said, who knows if they've changed it.

macfrannie said...

I'm also interested in how the right as rain fits. Is it roomy or tighter? I usually wear a 10 on top but have had to size up with some jackets that don't have much give in the shoulders. Like the puddle jumper I had to go up to a 12 to get enough room. Any fit feedback is greatly appreciated!!!

Happy upload eve.

I bought the energy bra in my normal size 8 and it is way too tight! Grrr... I never try them on because I have 10 other energy bras. Now I have to go back to exchange it! Annoying!

Anonymous said...

yup, I just lined my plum energy bra up with all my others and it's a good 1/2 to 3/4 inch smaller in the ribcage elastic part. it's a very noticeable difference, I will try and take some pictures in daylight tomorrow.

just checked 5 other energy bras, all made in Vietnam. the plum one is made in Sri Lanka.

why lulu, why!!

Anonymous said...

Wow, not a fan of the Right as Rain. The weird, tight length is very unflattering.

I actually just ordered the Studio Softshell and I was a little worried when I saw a new jacket. I'm glad I got the SS.

Anonymous said...

same person who measured my plum energy bra against the others here...

just made another discovery, my new midnight iris energy bra, also made in Sri Lanka, is also smaller, the same size as the plum.

Anonymous said...

I have the "new" size dot in a top bought three or four weeks ago. It has some identifying numbers/letters on it and is silver. I guess they're showing up sporadically.

Would you like a pic LLA?

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 9:09 pm - I think I have a photo of it somewhere. I'll search for it.

Anonymous said...

Well crap! Why would I try on the bra when I always wear the same size? I too bought the plum Energy bra, cut off the tags and washed it. After reading the above posts, II measured it against another, and yeah, it is noticeably smaller than the other one. The sizing and quality issues are getting sooo stinking old! I am so disgusted! This is beyond annoying. Thanks LLA for such a great, informative blog!

Anonymous said...

Yes they are tts...I tried them on today and my size fit fine :)

Anonymous said...

LLa I sent a photo of the new grey size dot on my mellow yellow boogie shorts. I like it better than the original. That is a huge bummer that they changed the size of the energy bras I just ordered the iris print one and got my usual six which fits me perfectly.

Can someone tell me if any pants these days are made with the high lycra content power luxtreme? I have a pair of runnin with my homies crops from a while ago I got on WMTM and the material is so thick and lucious.. I jus want a pair of something like that and everything like inspires now is SO thin! Its ridiculous!

I tried on the new quilted band WUs and they did not pass the fold over test in the dressing room. I could see my underwear right through them! I must have been really lucky because I bought two pair of black WUC in the last year with no problems. Now, not so much. Really disappointed! :(

christlec said...

Just tried on the new quilted WUs at my local store yesterday and they did NOT pass the fold over test either. I could see the print on my underwear!! I must have gotten really lucky because I bought 2 pair of black WUCs late last year and they are very thick, no see-through. Very disappointed this is not fixed still! :(
(I didn't even touch the midnight iris. You could see it was sheer from just stretching the material a bit.)
