I sized up in the Bhakti to an 8 from my normal 6 in forme because it was a tight fit in the arms. Oddly I wear a 2 in stretchy burnout materials, a 6 in push ur limits and a 4 in crbs and was accused of using my r&d discount to buy gifts today even though I tried on the items for educators. Well maybe if they had consistent sizing then it wouldn't be a problem!!
Hmmm, the fit of those track pants looks off. I love track pants but those are either a size up item or she is wearing a size too small. The new jacket also doesn't look quite as cute in these pics as it did in the first shots you had of it.
GEC is such a joke. I tried calling yesterday as I had problems with my online order and waited on hold for an hour until being disconnected. Yes I know it's crazy to do that Christmas day but I had some downtime. Anyway, I ended up emailing them and found out their call centre was closed. Do ya think they could have put an automated message?!! Well they didn't. Jokes on me I guess.
Tried on the entered energy bra, it was cute but the seaming by the bust on the front kills it for me.... Shows through weirdly under fitted tanks :( hoping a ftb bra comes out in the baroque blue.
I tried on the Bhakti jacket today. It was cute but the sleeves were soooooo long for me. I'm only 5'1 so that's part of it but I still think they were crazy long. I love the sleeve length on my defines and I have one forme (pique) and although those are longer than the defines, they are still a great length. The sleeves on the Bhakti were 2-4inches longer than my forme and made it unwearable for me personally.
Boxing day at my store was disappointing. Barely anything on sale. Last year I scored some old stock (old luon, diamond gussets) and was hoping for that today. I've seen more sales during random times. In fact I saw some studio crops marked down last week and they were marked back up to original price today. The place was packed. They said there was a line out the door a half hour before opening.I heard someone ask an Ed if they were so busy bc of some kind of special sale. She said no it's just a busy day bc a lot of people get gift cards. Hmm.
The Baroque Blue Bhakti Jacket is not on the website, right??? Does anyone know?I hope it hasn't sold out as I really want it! So pretty!
I went to the store today to return the size 4 PS WUC since it is just too big on me. I was pleasantly surprised to find several pairs including 2 of size 2 in the store. Size 2 gives me more compression and fits perfectly! It really made my day! I also tried on the Baroque Blue Bhakti Jacket and had to size up to 6 but it just did not look right on me. Plus the thin luon fabric does not justify the $108 price tag! There were some marked down items in the store but nothing special.
3crazykids: I'm in between so may sizes, too! I take a 2 in loose stuff like 105F and heart opener, then 4-8 depending on the fit of the top. It's really challenging to find the right fit, sometimes.
Looks like they are bringing back the same color palette as last year. That blue is way to close to pigment and all the other blues that have come out in the last year. Fresh teal and mint moment are also so similar. I think the CRB might be a try on item. My speed shorts in the brisk bloom arrived yesterday. The liner is flesh colored which is nice, the 2 way fabric is not as scratchy as the one in the gingham pattern.M
I tried on the Bhakti jacket today as well. Loved the stayling but it puckered out oddly in front of my shoulder blades. I'm pretty petite but it was a strange place for there to be extra material. I actually ended up going home with the gratitude wrap. I know I'm kind of late to the party on this one but I absolutely love this piece!!! I also tried on the hi/low WUP in the grey stripe. Super cute but the material is very thin as other on here have mentioned. I also picked up the aria tank. It is really really long...it's basically a dress on me. Which is fine, I'll just wear it casually with leggings.
Anon 12:49, I hear a lot of people have a huge size range so I was shocked when the woman said "you get an r&d as a thank you for product feedback and not to buy for other people" and later "are you sure all of the items are for you?" Between singlets and parachute pants and all the different fits and capsules, people size up and down all the time. I left that store pissed!
I hope they don't ruin every Baroque Blue bra with those stupid stripes.
Wow, really?? Poor customer service, decline in quality, and now accusing wrongdoing regarding a minimal discount. I have to agree with the other reader about the sizing issue; not all women are sized the same for each item that arrives. As a person traveling for the holidays, I stopped in the local store and I was not impressed by the people or the boxing day sale today. Like some lucky lulu lovers, I was there bright & early. This particular store did not make boxing day special apart from other stores I've seen in the past. No sales rack and a lack of heavy foot traffic. It was just a few items sprinkled here and there with mark down stickers. I have been to other stores in the past that make the shopping trip worth it. They go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcomed and appreciative to be shopping pre-opening normal business hours. What happened to #nohumbug?? Last year I scored some of the best items over the holidays at a happy Lulu sale price with some of the best staff on the floor. Items that I had purchased at other stores on sale a week ago were not marked down today. What a total loss for this particular LLL store. And on top of that, I was ridiculed for the spelling/pronunciation of my first name. It's not difficult. I can't help it if "you" with the black marker cannot hear or spell my name. It wasn't busy..hence the open fitting rooms. The girls were making fun outside the fitting room. I could just feel the fake smirks when obnoxiously trying to pronounce my name. She checked on me (3-4x which I think is excessive) when I only had two items with me. Once again, I am dissapointed in Lululemon and I will not be a returning customer after todays experience. Thanks for the great blog. Hopefully your other readers will not experience what I went through today. Nobody deserves to be disrespected and I will not tolerate and support a company of this nature. -Peace Out, best wishes, happy year, Namaste ya'll
wow I am sorry 12:01 that is rude. those educators should be reported, that is unacceptable.M
