WANT and NEED!! I'm obsessed with all things piqué!!
i LOVE this!! i can't wait to buy it when it comes to stores or on-line!!
uh oh. i think i need this. :)
That does look lovely! Does the pique material pill?
I don't need another jacket nor to spend $118 one a single item...but I HAVE to have this one!!!
Noooo! Stop making forme jackets and bring back the damn defines already.(But I do admit this is kinda pretty...)
And here I thought I had vowed to never buy a forme jacket. But Lulu has to go ahead and make it out of my favorite material of all time! Grrr!
This looks so cute!! Are Forme Jackets TTS or do people size up for more comfy fit? Are they very tight fit?

I love this! How does pique wear? I don't own any pieces,
I like pique but not this one. It looks odd with the pockets so low to the bottom and without a more ample hem. It seems unfinished to me.
Hey LLA! I see you mentioned that you bought the inkwell paisley WUC. I was wondering if they're tts or a size up or size down item? The last pair of WUC I purchased were the soot ziggy ones and I had to size down (first time ever for WUC) because they were so stretchy. Is the fabric of the paisley ones similar to to the soot ziggys or more like a regular WU?
OT - has anyone worn the soot Can't Stop crops for a really sweaty workout? I'm worries about crotch sweat! Thanks
@ anon 9:27 am - I don't think the Paisley WUs are a size down item. I did buy a size down since I am anticipating more weight loss but they are too snug right now and sneak down my backside. The material is not as stretchy as the Ziggy material.
Thanks for the feedback LLA! I'll order my tts. :)
OT as well, but has anyone tried or purchased the Can't Stop Crops? I'm looking to buy a pair but my store is all sold out and I'm not sure how they run. How do they compare to WU or Run:Inspires?Any help would be appreciated. I'd love to know measurements and what size you bought to help me gauge between the two sizes I'm considering.Thank you!!
I would have to size up in formes, I purchases a 4 but it was way too snug, they are stretchy but unless you want skin tight, size up. My normal size is a 4 for scuba's and CRB's, etc. I have a daily yoga jacket pique that I got on markdown last year, I've noticed it pilling a teeny bit in one spot, so it does get a bit scruffy if you use it a lot.But it's still super cute and comfy!Question, are dog runner pants TTS or size down? Woudl I take the same size as studio pants or WUs??Thx
I have a pique Stride Jacket from a few years ago. Love it and the fabric has worn fabulously.
@6:25am- I don't own a forme II, but tried one on in a store recently. I am a true size 6, and I thought the 6 fit perfectly. I would've bought it if the patterns my store had were better. I just tried it on to see how it fit compared to the forme I. It is form-fitting, but not skin tight.
So happy I have the define from almost two years ago!
I recently purchased a form Ii and I love it, more so than the define, I think it's a tad longer, and the fit is perfect, not super tight with a little bit of room to spare.
I have the dog runner pants from 2011 and 2012. I thought they ran slightly smaller than TTS. My 2011s are a size 4 and I feel that they pull a little across the hips. I bought a 6 for 2012 and I like the looser fit. I think my 2013 track to reality pants in a 4 fit similar in the hips to the dog runner 6. Obviously the length of these 2 pants is a bit different and the liners aren't quite the same.Hope this helps you.
I would get it if I didn't already have the Black Define Pique, which I actually got in WMTM!! It's soooo soft and cozy, one of my favorites and probably the one I wear the most as mid-layer in winter time. I have experienced zero pilling in two years, but I am *extremely* careful with lululemon fabrics. I'm in Europe and exchanges/returns are not really an option, even at full price.Here is the LLA post on this define:http://luluaddict.blogspot.ch/2011/11/store-trip-report-lulu-haul.html
This is gorgeous and soft and identical material to the piqué wills just the striped pattern is on the inside. I stay tts in formes but also stayed tts in defines. Size up was baggy in the arms and not as flattering. Hope this helps!
Looks like a website crasher to me! Lol.
I loved the Can't Stop crops. Those soot ones I was asking about weren't sheer for me, but I had a very light, soft blue pair of undies on. If is had on polka dots you might have been able to see them. They felt stretch with just the right amount of compression for me (definitely more compressive than the mod moves crop, which I love & have several of). They didn't show the wonderful post-baby dimples and at the same tight weren't too tight. I felt like the waist band was just a bit wider than I prefer, but it wasn't a deal-breaker. They seemed pretty TTS to me. I'm still sizing up to a 12 in most things as I'm hanging on to the blessed baby weight, and they felt just right.
Thank you Jamie Barba! I'm the one who was asking about the Can't Stop Crop and I appreciate your help. I just bought a pair of them so we'll see how they work out. I'm excited about the length and the side pockets. I'm pretty faithful to my Inspires but I wanted to try these out since I love the side pockets and the reflectivity on the hem. I'm kind of in between a 4 and 6 in Lulu bottoms so sometimes I'm unsure of which size to buy. :)
Thanks for the review, Jamie! I've had my eye on these pants!
