Upload - In Progress!!!




Well, God knows what's with the upload tonight. Things keep appearing on the website and disappearing or you can't add them to your cart or they are on the mobile site but not available from a computer or vice versa. I'm not sure what I am ordering. Someone said they saw a Raspberry No Limit Tank but it disappeared. I am ordering the Skinny Grooves now that they are finally in my cart. I'll update with my final order later after the website settles down.

Update - I'm reading on my Facebook group boards that the new Full On luon is a tighter weave and more compressive than the first batch that came out over the summer. So, if you have been sizing down from the size chart because regular luon has a lot of stretch and not too much compression you might want to rethink what you ordered. I know I tried on the Full On Luon Wunder Under Pants over the summer and found them really nice and compressive and TTS (and when I say TTS I mean the measurement off the size charts.)  I am planning on going to the store to try some of the new Full On Luon stuff on. If anyone has recently tried the new Full On luon stuff on, please comment in with your fit reviews.

Wth. Where did you find the skinny grooves? I see a few items that aren't the slightest but interesting. Nothing in surge or raspberry except the power y.

I ordered WUC in full-on luon. I hope they are nice. I've been needing new black WUC forever but have yet to find a pair that is anywhere near as nice as my older pair. Here's hoping!! I am interesting in the skinny grooves but will have to try them in store. I'd need them hemmed anyway (I'm 5'5"). I like the new sweater, it's looks super comfy, but hard to tell from the model if it is super unflattering. Another must try-on item for me. If I miss it, no big deal.

The upload kept coming and going on my phone but my computer got it all and I was able to place my order in!

Did anybody glimpse any gratitude wraps uploaded? And any clue what wrap/jacket the model is wearing in the photos for the Namaste Yoga Tote IV?

I ended up just getting the Inspires in the beautiful Deep Zin. The Yeah Yoga crops were tempting until I realized it was the same mesh detailing as the cycling crops. No thanks. Crossing my fingers for the new colors to pop up in Ivivva tanks this week. Their Keep Ur Cool Racers fit me way better than CRBs (costing less helps too). They posted a sneak peak of a surge Double Dutch that I'm very excited about too.

@ anon 10:58 pm- Full on luon WUC are on my wish list. I really like the Full On fabric when I tried it in the WUP this summer.

I kind of like the deep zinfandel in the beautiful baroque print... but I am tempted to see what else comes in that combination... even though I am looking for a darker sports bra *cringe*

I know I probably shouldn't wait, I'm sure 34c will be gone from stores right away...

They wouldn't release a bunch of product in Black Swan AND Deep Zinfandel, would they? I got excited about more black swan this year with the dog runner pants (I know 3 years in a row, but still...), but now I'm thinking that might be it?

Hmm. I'm not sure if I'll order anything but am tempted by the deep zinfandel inspires. What a beautiful color!! LLA now that you mentioned that some colorways do not have mesh I'm always hoping the new colors will not have it! I am not crazy about the mesh especially in colors - black is ok.

I was initially excited about the open your heart but now that I see it is cotton and not rulu I'm not so sure and will want to feel the material first. Also why can't lulu get with it and when something is reversible show both sides!? Is it really that big of a deal = they show both sides of the inkwell. That is so annoying.

I also like the jacket in the yoga tote pic. I may hit my store at lunch today and see what they have in.

Can anyone comment on the paisley CRB with regard to poly content?

the whole idea of the full-on luon frustrates me. it feels like just a marketing thing to get us to pay more for the same pants. I tried the full-on WUP over the summer and didn't think they were different enough to warrant buying them. they were still a little sheer, but definitely less sheer.

basically full-on luon is similar to what the older luon was, it's their way of improving after the sheerness debacle. it's what the luon should have always been and therefore charging more seems shady to me.

(says the girl who just ordered both full-on skinny grooves and skinny wills. rolls eyes at myself).

I got scuba and in the flow crop.
I like printed scuba but I am not sure this color will works for me.
Does anyone know if online return same as in store holiday return policy? TIA.

the full-on luon is not more expensive? At least in the WUC.I would not pay for for them, as I agree, they are what luon should always have been. But as long as they are nice, thick & opaque, I will be happy. I'm going to my store today too. I have had no desire to go for the last couple of months but I want to try on the skinny grooves &the reversible WUP (I don't like pink, but in case they come out w/ some better colors in future uploads). I am also excited for the ivivva upload tonight. I hope some of these colors show up there. Ivivva stuff fits me much better for less $, but lately the colors & patterns have been hideous. I know it is meant for children but hopefully some plain colors will be uploaded tonight :) Anyone that goes to their store to try stuff, please report back!

@2:55 I totally agree! I was looking at the new sweater in black & wondering why they wouldn't show the reverse side in at least 1 pic?! Makes no sense since that would be a big selling point if I liked both sides equally.

I have a pair of the full on lion WUPs that I bought about a month ago, and I can attest to the sizing. I first bought a size 10 because an educator told me to size up. After about 4 wears, they stretched out so much that I kept having to pull them up. It was super annoying. Plus, they totally lost their shape. Lulu took them back and gave me a gift card. I bought my TTS a month ago, and I still find that I have to adjust them but not as much. I probably could have went down to a size 6 because of how they stretch out. I am afraid of the sheerness though, and I don't want to go through the hassle of returning another pair of pants. Hope this helps!

I just got the black *full on skinny wills this past weekend at my local store (el segundo, CA). Definitely thick/opaque/compressive. Bought my usual size 6 (same as my pique, herringbone, and sept ziggy skinny wills), but they were pretty tight. I might have been able to get away with a size 8, but the 6 wasn't see through at all, and the seams weren't digging in. I'm in the process of dropping some lbs, so I stuck with my TTS 6. If you're really between sizes, I might go with your larger size. 5lbs ago I might have taken the 8's home instead. Love the compressive feel. Haven't worn them yet as I left them to be hemmed, but looking forward to it!

I ordered the deep zin aria tank and those new cozy looking sweats (can't remember the name). I hate the stupid seams right in the middle of the butt AND the placement of the drawstring, but I love the colour and LOVE wearing comfy pants.
(sigh). Sometimes I feel like Lulu is like an abusive boyfriend and I just can't bring myself to leave the relationship.

I am currently lounging in the skinny grooves in full-on luon. I agree that the material is different from the FOL over the summer. The WU I tried on when they were first released were sheer when bending over. These are opaque, buttery soft, and lightly compressive. I don't want to take them off!

I also scored a retro groove bag on MD. Very excited about this!

How can I subscribe to this blog? I'm a runner and do yoga on my own, lift and love lulu. I fell in love with their heathered wunder unders they made over a year ago and cannot find them anymore :( they were so soft and comfy and warm...any reccomendations for similar pants that you know of either lulu or other? i love anything super soft for post WO and good for walking a lot around the city. If there is a way to add my email to your daily posts, charlotte.kelsey@yahoo.com

Re: 1:23

A lulu manager told me that the Dog Runner is it for Black Swan--it wont be reappearing as a part of this winters color story.

@ anon 10:40 am - I agree with the assessment about going to the larger size if you are between sizes in the Skinny Grooves. I tried both the 10 and 12 on. The sheen on the 10 seemed to highlight my lumps and bumps and I could see the shadow of the white tag and my black underwear in a deep bend. The 12s were better, and more opaque, but I hated the way they looked on me. I need the leg to be a tiny bit wider, like the Energize Pant. I didn't think the fabric felt any different from when I tried the Full On Luon Wunder Under pants over the summer.
