Post Chaturanga Pullover and More


First photos of the new Post Chaturange pullover. I am getting conflicting reviews on this. Some love it and others don't.

Spotted in an LA store - the Mind and Body Kit comes in the new Black and White Brisk Blossom print. That banguster in the print will be mine. Cannot wait to see what else this print is coming in. I'm hoping a Power Y. (Thanks to Ms. C. for the photo.)


Top photo shows the new removable hood Scuba (eeew) and the bottom shows the other special edition Scubas - ruffle, ?, and removable hood.


Just Be burnout tee and Yeah Yoga crops.


 Lace Inspire crops and CRB, Lace WUP, Bow WUP, and Ruffle WUP.




Photo showing the interior pocket in the Base Runner hoodie. There is a earbud port so you can feed them up through the inside of the hoodie.

Weekend Warrior bag.

I'm reading the fit of the new GW has changed so it flares a bit more at the bottom. Additionally, there is no longer a snag nor a drawstring on the neckline. Anyone see it in their stores yet?

Hi LLA, couldn't agree with you more on this upload. You and I are in a race to get that printed Mind and Body Kit. The hood scuba is a definite yuck. I like the yeah yoga crop, is that lace detail on the shin? do you have any experience with that and LULU item, is it strong enough to hold up? The earbud port is a great idea, I am getting that just for that feature.
I had a great idea for the just be burn out tee. If only it was full sleeves, with a hoodie, same material, I can wear my favorite CRBs underneath and the color will show up muted. It would make for a great outfit. I know LULU doesn't give a damn about our opinion/ideas, can you pitch this to Yogasmoga people? At least they are listening to their clients particularly us, the LLA readers. Also, thank you for getting us the $75 off deal. You rock.

When can we expect to see items in the new brisk blossom print?

My store had the Mind & Body kit and headband in Black and White Brisk Bloom last weekend, as well.

I'd really love that Weekend Warrior Bag if it had some more dark purple on it....but I can't justify spending that much on a gym bag. Tried the Sweat Once A Day bag the other day at the store but it was just much too huge for my small frame.

This new upload is yuck -- are they trying to dump crappy stuff on us for Cyber Monday.... yucky!

will there be another upload tonight??

I'll pass on this whole upload even though the kit is great and I like the feature for the ear plugs. The hoodie pretty much did it for me absolutely god awful thing.

I think I will stick to yoga smoga $75 off deal and order more stuff from them for this holiday season.

what's happening to LULU. How many pieces of cloth are they going to use on that poor PC pullover? When all others (athletica, nike, UA and YogaSmoga) are using nice straight lines in beautiful colors what the heck is lulu doing.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone have any info on the lace that lulu is using? Do you think it has stretchability or is it durable? If not I am taking advantage of the yogasmoga discount and going with the LLA review for their Ballerina Leggings.

The removeable hood scuba...how the hell are you supposed to see? Goodbye peripheral vision! It also looks like she should be standing around a fire chanting.

Can't wait for the floral pattern on that bangbuster. I'm not really a floral person, but that is just so pretty.

Anyone in the greater Toronto area and seen the gratitude wraps in stores? I wanted to venture out tonight but will do it tomorrow if not. Thanks!

Yes my store had all four colors. They were flying off the racks. They do NOT have the string on the collar which I actually like better. I purchased the Zin and was super happy with the fit.

Anonymous said...

My local store had the GW and I got the deep zin one. It's not Barney purple like one of your readers commented on. It's a very nice muted purple.

The fit is slightly different. The bottom hem curves up slightly in front do it lays nicely. As long as you don't pull the ties it has a gentle flare and doesn't look like a potato sack. I have to check against my black swan one from 2 years ago but in this version, the sleeves weren't lined, just the body of the wrap. I thought this version was a little longer in the back as well. I did find the snaps a lot tighter - almost felt I might rip the snap piece off the fabric! I sized down to take some of the bulk out of the body and find it skims nicely. Definitely not pregnant looking.

Thanks, Anon 2:20! I will go out and see if I can still snatch one up if I like the new changes!

Eric said...

I did see the Power Y in the Brisk Bloom while the website glitch was working. Hopefully it shows up soon :)

Anonymous said...

Yay that's good to know @2:20 PM I ordered one online last night but after reading lulumums review I got a bit worried. I haven't seen the old ones in person so hopefully I won't be disappointed!!

Ivviva upload! (For those interested.)

@12.42pm we should keep writing to yogasmoga with all our suggestions. i know they are a small company but I am so happy they are actually listen - I was thrilled to see my suggestions incorporated in this round of product release. I can't wait for them to grow.
So impressed with their custy service as well. I cant believe they actually spend 20min talking to me on the phone - on cyber monday no less to help me decide on sizing. I am sure they are swamped today. YS if you are listening - Kudos. I am a big fan and supporter.
ps- as an aside you can put in mutliple combo orders and you get $75 on each of the orders, and I get my yogi bucks too :)

I so pissed off right now. I wasted my time on stupid lulu site --- I so wanted the yogasmoga ballerina leggings - the ones you reviewed LLA - it was in my cart but then the black in size 6 are sold out. Yogasmoga is not taking any pre-orders. LLA do you know anyone there who can help me. It has ruined my evening and I am beyond pissed as I am going to miss their $75 deal!!!! Uugh.

LLA please let me know if you know anyone there who can put a backorder for me. Its a emergency. I didnt realize yogasmoga would sell out of the product so fast. They have some in size 8 but 6's and 4's are gone! :-(

Hi LLA, when are we getting the latest review on Yogasmoga, in another comments section you mentioned that you will be reviewing the rest of the line. I loved their quality and really like the new colors. Have already ordered Ballerina Leggings and Yantra Top using the $75 LLA code. Wanted to check in with you before getting their crop. Thank you for all the help.

Anonymous said...

I like the brisk blossom print!

OT - So bummed, I waited till now 7:18 pm EST to order from yogasmoga and already my size 6 Ballerina pants are gone. So ordered their Tippy Toe Leggings in Jodhpur Blue and the Yantra Tank in Jodhpur Blue / Boy Blue. Still thinking of getting their crop too.
I am totally done with LULU after hearing the new Luon is still sheer and the new pink is still bleeding.

Anonymous said...

Sorry but I am not feeling the love like many others for the GW. I have a couple of them from previous release and they are meh...........seldom have I worn them ......... they are like new just hanging in a closet and I have zero desire to own another regardless of the colour. I did, however, take advantage of the $75 off discount for Yogasmoga and ordered 2 new pairs of leggings (ballerina and tippy toe) and two new tanks (twistie and yantra). Thanks for the heads up on the discount.

As for the rest of the upload last week and last night........some easy passes for me as I guess I just own so much Lulu from the last 10 years that I have to really feel some love to order now. Plus I am done with looking the same as everyone else in the gym (or like everywhere) as so many wear LLL now that it is nothing special to me!!

I mix and match now to be different (Athleta, Sweaty Betty among many other companies) to mix my look up and not be so all "LLL"

Eeeek, I really don't understand the hype around the Post Chaturanga PO. It looks like a cheap man's sweater. Way too boxy and adds unnecessary bulk to the midsection in all the photos I've seen. I guess I just prefer a more fitted, feminine shape.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon - 4:57 pm - If you have a couple of GWs you don't use you should sell them. Depending on the color you could get $300-400+ for each.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 4:10 pm - I ran out of time today. What do you want to know about?

Anonymous said...

I don't get the idea of a removable hood hoodie. If one doesn't want hood on one leaves it hanging at the back. Does anyone get bothered by a hood when not in use? Suppose someone removes the hood during an outing, where will one put it? Inside a bag? If one decides not to bring hood attached one will wear jacket without hood. Worst concept ever.
LLA, you should have another Best/worst of the year.

Anonymous said...

@LLA - I am anon 4:10 - I am really bummed that the ballerina legging at yogamsoga has sold out - I cant book a pre-order on it anymore as they are completely sold out. Do you know anyone who can hook me up there and maybe book a pre-order for me? I send them a email but they havent gotten back to me yet.....

any thought? really bummed that I wasted my time trying to get lulu stuff I dont like and now I can't get what I wanted in the first place. Ruined my cyber monday.

do you know anyone I can chat with there? I know they do special for you.

I think all these Yogasmoga comments are a bunch of crap. I ordered some stuff a few months ago and wasn't impressed. I notice on this board once LLA reviews YogaSmoga the next few days the blog is inundated with YS comments. You can tell they are fake because they are 100% positive. No company gets 100% positive comments.

Anonymous said...

I think the YogaSmoga stuff is ugly.

I love all this!!! Looking forward to lots of nice Lululemon offerings this holiday season!

Anonymous said...

LLA- Do you think there will be an upload tonight? Tia!

Lee said...

@lla do you know if yogasmoga is coming out with jackets soon? I like their simple and elegant lines and would be nice to see a good basic jacket from them soon.

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much for the discount code on Yogasmoga I too wanted the black ballerina pants but wound up ordering the crops in grey clavier and the U and Me bra in Violet both for $62!!! No shipping and NO TAX :) and best of all made in the USA. I'm so SICK of LULULEMON made In CHINA's sweatshops.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 12:42 pm - the mesh insert on the yeah yoga seemed like it was a double layer and very durable compared to the second chance pants. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on and felt them

@ anon 12:57 pm - I think this week. Pieces are arriving in the stores it looks like.

@ anon 2:20 pm - thanks for the fit review. I know people are kind of bummed about the changes but I've passed on the GW twice before maybe this time I'll like it.

@ Eric - thanks!

@Lee - I asked them about that way back in April and told them I like to have a jacket to match my clothes. It looks like there are none coming in this production run but I hope eventually.

@ anon 6:46 pm - there is supposed to be one.

@ anon 6:35 pm - not all the comments are positive but I do think there is a bit of spamming going on. ;-)

@ anon 6:06 pm - the Tippy Toe leggings are super nice, too. Also, the Seattle Mist is a really nice dark blue and I see that is still available in all sizes. You can try reaching out to Annie. Maybe they will have a return.

Anonymous said...

@anon 6:35 - I think the blog has a lot of comments about yogasmoga since there was a review and they are running a very generous campaign that is ending tonite for Cyber Monday so a lot of people like me are interested as we are looking for a real alternative to lulu.

You just sound a bit jealous since people are chating about a company other than lululemon. It might be hard for you to believe, but not everyone is brainwashed and there are people looking for alternatives, whether it be yogasmoga or athleta or others. Just something to ponder about. Namaste.

We can spot the YogaSmoga MOLES!!! LMAO!!!

Anonymous said...

Not a mole for YogaSmoga nor for either of the other companies I mentioned in my comment above so you can stop laughing your ass off ;)

I have nothing negative thus far to say about YS but assure some of you haters that when my 4 new pieces arrive in a couple of days (two of which are sold out and some above are already coveting) I would be more than happy to report (good or bad).

Annie has been fantastic in the past with me and has even shipped me two extra pieces (free) to try out for feedback. Again, not a mole, so settle down when you read this. I am simply looking for other options other than LLL. I have also tried Sweaty Beatty (some beauty pieces) and the really wonderful thing about wearing other companies pieces is that I don't look like every Tom, Dick or Harry!

Peace out!!

I live in Canada and don't see the removable hood for the scuba hoodie. Has it ever been on line?

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:28 am - two SE scubas did not make it on line - the bow one and the hood one.

Anonymous said...

I love the yogasmoga moles. it's freaking hysterical. clearly the company can't afford to pay a marketing person so they are trying their own version of guerilla marketing. FAIL.

Anonymous said...

10:53 I think using this blog is an excellent way to market their product. everyone who visits this blog is crazy about nylon/lycra workout gear and will go to extremes to aquire the stuff. it is definitely working for YS.

@ M - everyone who visits this blog is pretty crazy about lululemon nylon/lycra workout stuff, that is for sure. Not too sure about other brands, though. ;-)
