So excited for my herringbone Wills to arrive, still so sad to have missed the striped ones :(
Super early WMTM! :)
@yogibabe - thanks for the WMTM notice! I just scored the pow purple/aquamarine stripe and cool breeze crbs for $29. Contemplating other stuff but wanted to order those before they sell out. Considering the faded zap long sleeve swiftly because I don't have any and like the color but don't want to buy it if it is going to snag like crazy... may stop at my store tomorrow to see if they have any marked down.
I've seen stripped wills at all my local stores (this week), if you missed them online.
LULU newbie here. Just received the WU BLDO (texture/?pique) from this week's upload. They feel like they are woven and not print on luon. (they dont feel like luon to me at all, i feel like i'm wearing a pair of wool leggins). They reverse to stripes (although the gusset will then be a dark triangle). They do feel a little scratchy to me, like where i'm wearing a wool sweater...is the will pants the same way? i dont have one to compare and don't know when i'll get to a store :)
imho, the Ruffled Up WU's are a bit much for me. The beauty to me is a clean, simple look. The ruffle and zipper look too heavy from an aesthetic standpoint. Maybe I'll warm up to them. Luckily for my wallet, I'm not into ruffles.I saw the midnight iris pacesetter reg and tall got uploaded on the sly (at least for me). I got 2 so I cld choose best pattern placement (I'm one of those!).My Speed Tights come tmrw...wee are from space september black/split pea. Am psyched.
Can anyone who bought the herringbone WU last year/in previous seasons speak to how well they wear? I grabbed the last pair of 2s in the WU herringbone just because they were almost gone (and gone now) but don't want to keep them if they aren't going to wear well. Thanks!
@8:36 - the pique wills are super soft and cozy. Not scratchy at all. Does anyone know what the black shirt in the first photo is? Promenade long sleeve? I like it.
Does anyone know if the ruffle WU are see through or thick?
Anon 8:36PM. The will pants have the reverse. So the stripe part is on the outside and the mini check is on the inside. It is the same fabric only inside out. The will pants are not reversible either.
I got the herringbone white crops last year and they balled up really bad between the crotch... It felt really lumpy and gross, I returned them and got a refund because no matter how much I picked off the giant lint balls, it kept happening. They were really comfortable and cute, I don't think I would have had a problem pre-baby because I was a size 0/2 but post baby my thighs touched.
The Ruffle WU is not as opaque as it could be. I was wearing black undies and tried on the black one. I could see the slightest hint of my undies. The Speed Cosy tights were totally opaque.
Just received my texture WUP and I love them! Not a fan of the Skinny Will on my body so very happy after having to return the Plum hi/low WUP (super shiny and not enough compression!). I ordered both texture WUP (herringbone and pique) and tried them on with full on pink underwear and they passed the test! I think I saw a hint of pink peeking through the herringbone but it's probably because those are a lighter color. Also, just a heads up, would definitely say they are a TTS or size up item depending on your preference. They look a bit smaller than my other size 4 WUP so was worried they wouldn't fit when I first saw them.
@ 9:52 PM, I don't know how well those new herringbone WU's wear, but I looked at them in store tonight. In an are of the pant, the herringbone black part was already coming out of the weave and that was me just picking them up off the shelf. I don't know if someone tried them on and did that and even if they did, that's pretty bad quality. I didn't even bother to look at another pair.
I have 4 pairs of herringbone wunder unders from last year. Alberta lake (pants), white (crops and pants), and black (crops). All of them are amazing... Mine haven't balled up (I'm a 6... And my thighs do rub, though not much). They are thick and super cozy and despite the white ones being a lighter color (I can't get away with other light colored wunder unders because of cellulite) but these smooth out all the flaws! They're my absolute fav! I think they're worth trying, just handwash/air dry!
