Post Chaturanga Pullover Lined with Sherpa Fleece?

Inside of Post Chaturanga Pullover

Sherpa Fleece lining of Keeping It Cozy Neck Warmer


Moto Jacket close up - looks like Sherpa fleece to me. Also, not mentioned in the text on the website.
OMG, how do I read try on reports from numerous people who swear up and down there is no sherpa fleece in the Post Chaturange PO and here it is? I'm sure it doesn't help that lululemon doesn't mention nor photograph the interior of the top at all, even though it's probably the biggest selling feature. Lulu website bashing aside, this is probably the "DHBH" that we were supposed to expect at the end of November. I can't believe there would be two Sherpa fleece-lined pullover tops, though I could be wrong. (Thanks to Ms. K. for the photo.)

Fleece from first production run of the DHBH - looks long and thick.

Update - Hmm, so is the Post Chaturanga lined with a sherpa-type fleece or not? I haven't seen it in person but the people I know who tried it on swear it wasn't yet the photo makes it look very sherpa-like. Maybe it is a thinner version of the sherpa found in the Don't Hurry Be Happy PO. I won't be able to tell for certain until I see it in person.

Kinda reminds me of the "hooked on beats" pull over I saw in Iviva a few weeks ago. If I were thinner I would have totally gotten it but post baby I'm a 6/8 and still have 20 lbs to lose

I hope it's not a substitution.... Nowhere near being as cute as DHBH

@Carrie Rae - I agree. The gray ones looks like it belongs on the men's side of the website. I've seen a few try on photos and it's hit or miss on people.

Where's the upload??!! I'm sleepy! LOL

It can't be the Dhbh substitute, I don't like it and really want a Dhbh...still hoping.

@ anon 10:21 pm - I don't know. I'm ready for bed myself. Last year, there were not two back to back uploads but I did see someone asked on the lulu FB page whether there would be new stuff tonight and they answered yes.

Any chance only grey got the sherpa? Seems so strange to me. But the website photo of the interior of the black moto jacket looks non-sherpa-y to me, so...maybe...?

The Ivivva Cozy Practice PO that got uploaded a few weeks ago has that same soft Sherpa fleece lining. I had ordered it and was happily surprised it had that as it wasn't even mentioned in the description. I can't believe they neglect to mention what really is a HUGE selling feature! Crazy, that!

no upload it seems :( I'm bummed, and I definitely would like a DHBH, as I'm not feeling the PC one so...also waiting for the mini check nice asana!

Well, I'm in Europe and I have been checking the website all morning long for a new upload (want all of the new wee stripe items badly!), so far unsuccessfully.

I have the Post Chaturanga and it is lined with what seems like a thinner Sherpa fleece than the DHBH, but it's still got that pile to it. I think what might be confusing some folks is that it also has rulu panels that do NOT have Sherpa fleece, so it is definitely lighter than the DHBH (which was Sherpa everywhere but the arm cuffs and hip band). Mine will be going back to the store. No matter how I try to style it or what I wear it with, that front kangaroo pocket does me no favors and it just looks too square and boxy. So sad, as I usually live for these types of tops when the temps plummet!

Yup! No upload AND they did not ship the stuff I ordered. Usually, they ship the order out the same day. Maybe they need to hire more people for the Christmas season?

what is going on?? I got conf e mails, saying I ordered my GW items & not I get e mails saying all cancelled?

C'mon, that's sherpa fleece. Even the close-up of that sleeve shows it.

Although what's up with people? The other day when you asked someone who bought it, they said it's not sherpa fleece inside. Maybe it's not as thick as the DHBH, but it's sherpa. Maybe it was thinned as DHBH was too warm, or because LLL is "cheapening" everything. Case in point: Scuba Stretch in place of Scuba.

Good thing I'm in CST. I just set my alarm, refreshed my phone browser, had a puzzled look on my face, then laid my head back down on my cozy pillow. Sleep disruption, maybe, but feeling great this morning...

I'm interested in any try on reports for the passage sweater - anyone try or buy it yet? Wondering if it is a size down item since it says it is oversized and it looks even too big on the model in my opinion. Love this new model by the way - she is so pretty and fit and it makes it easy to tell how the clothes might fit. Thanks. Hoping to stop in a store at lunch today and if they have it I will report back.

I agree though that this new pullover is not all that much to get excited about. Too bulky in my opinion.

Ugggh lulu is such a pain!!!! I waited for the upload (and uploads happen at like 2:30am in NS) and NOTHING!!! What a waste of valuable sleep time.

Thank you to the person who tipped off the ivivva upload. Although I generally don't dig their styles, I did pick up a couple cable knit scarves, legwarmers and sweaters this time around.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:11 am - I am very sorry about that. We got bad intel.

Lol! And I slept on the couch and woke up periodically to check for the upload! I got Chipped! (My new word I'm going to use for any time I perceive that Lulu screwed me, real or imagined, lol!)

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 7:12 am - Chipped - I love it!!!

Isn't that the moto jacket? The pullover doesn't have zippers on the sleeve. I think the sleeves on the moto jacket look too short anyway.

@4:59 that's funny, I was thinking yesterday how much I dislike the 2 models they are using right now. I don't think they show how they clothes look in real life very well. And the girl with long kinda ratty hair looks mean lol. What I really wish is that they would post the measurements of the models & the size they are wearing. Even Forever21 does this, so it really can't be that difficult. I bet it would reduce their return rate by so much!!!

Wow, glad I wasn't the only one sleeping on the couch. LOL, I am so loving that new Brisk Blossom print, I need it and don't want to miss it. Shameful how late I stayed up but at least I was doing some grading for my classes. :)

The close up picture isn't the PC, it is definitely the moto (or something else we haven't seen). You can tell the zipper is lined with the black on only one side, like the moto. The zipper on the PC has the black accent on both sides. Also, you can tell the zipper is angled, like the moto.

I tried on the PC pullover today when I popped into the store. I WANT to like it because I really liked the fleece inside but it was pretty baggy around my midsection, front and back. I also wished that the rulu/luon at the bottom fit a bit tighter but I'm not sure if it was stretched out from people trying it on. My order with the pullover is supposed to come in the mail this week so I'll see how it goes trying on in the comfort of my house. I really WANT to love it but right now it looks like it's probably going back.

yeah I concur w/ the gal about the models measurements a ton of websites do so along w/ the garment size she is wearing; shopbop, net a porter, to name two there are a ton more too, yes it does help cut down on returns for sure and yes it isn't difficult. I know they all wear a size 6 though.
