Very weird! There must be more coming ... not even anything added to the WMTM yet ... we have a whole three items on the Canadian side!
So annoying!!! Nothing even showing up in WMTM. The Cdn side has 3 items total in WMTM. I hope my sneaking suspicion that the Parallel Stripe WUC will never show up on the Cdn site is wrong....Do uploads ever show up this late? 45 minutes late now...
Ooh, the surge neck warmers are back. YAY!
LLA--does luxtreme ever pill? I know Luon can. I am debating whether to keep parallel stripe runday vs. parallel stripe wuc...
Only 2 new items uploaded... Pass!
Can anyone comment on the sheerness/opacity factor of the Beautiful Baroque/Deep zin WUCs? I see that they are still available in my size on the website and am considering ordering them. I was hoping for a CRB in this print but it doesn't look like its coming...It's almost 6:45 EST and no WMTM update. Bummer. Hopefully next week's will be much better.
Crazy small upload(?) is right! I thought they were supposed to be a retail business, but true-to-form, lululmeon isn't interested in maximizing sales before Christmas. As always, they're interested in manipulating their customer base. Also, they no longer have to offer free express shipping, since they profit substantially from their usually exorbitant overcharges for that service, 11 out of 12 months a year. lululemon is so predictable and not nearly as stealth as they try to be. Sad really.
Upload??????I am in Canada on the East Coast and stayed up until past 2:30 am waiting for the parallel stripe WUC. And all we get is a (cute but I already have too many) scarf & a plain shirt? And not a single item added to WMTM? Not cool LLL.I even called my store last night & asked if they had any PS WUC & the Ed asked me if I meant the band. She did not even seem to be aware that there was a "full stripe" WUC that existed. She told me that if it was on the website it should be in stores within a few days...Are they really a size down item?I am a true size 4 across the board for bottoms. I have never, ever sized down (not even for studio pants). I can't imagine ordering a size 2! Are they really as big as some are saying? Or are they an "if you are in between sizes go for your smaller size" item?Thanks!
And no wmtm update as of 8:30am est either? Boo.
OT but LLA, how is the deep v tank? I see it in wmtm and looks nice, just always nervous to order when it's final sale. Is it tts for shelf bra tanks? I'm not big chested, no not concerned about spilling out lol
OT - was the bleached coral/guava lava vinyasa scarf uploaded previously and I missed it or is it still coming?
Weakest upload EVAH!
I think the site is being buggy, because my "whats new" shows that winter orchid vinyasa in rulu is available, but when I click on it it does not show up in the product page. It looks gorgeous!
So frustrated with LLL and the Canadian site! Waited up for two new products and no wmth - I live in NL and have to rely on the website as we have no LLL store in the province! Was wondering if someone could angel me a pair of wuc parallel stripe pants in a 6? Would be really grateful :)
There was upload, they only add a couple of things.The Prisone's Stripe WUC and WUP have continue to show up online. I don't get what people rush to pay twice or even above retail price for sth that has JUST been uploaded. It's clear it will show up again. Almost always do (when the sell out happens within hours that is, like with the GW more recently).I was one with a canceled order, and was abale to re-order them today, both crops and pants to see which one I like better, I will for sure send the other back.
very frustrated with LLL right now! on the east coast (Canada) and waited up for the WUC PS pants. Just noticed that the WMTM section is updated and a new vinyassa scarf was added - not sure why that couldn't have been done all last night?? Server issue?Anways, I was wondering if someone could angel me a pair of WUC PS pants in 6 - I live in NL and we do not have a LLL store here so have to rely on the online :(
These vinyasas are probably the fastest selling item in store.Everyone loves them, and our store sells out within a few days of getting them. The only color left is the light pink.
parallel strip WUCs in 8,10,12 uploaded on U.S. side. Guess they did make it all the way to the 12s. =).
@ anon 6:1 am - I would say the shelf bra fit similar to that in Power Ys, so TTS.
@ anon 3:54 am - I think they are having some distribution/production problems. They alluded to those in the quarterly conference call. I don't understand your express shipping comment, they just went to the free priority shipping a few days ago. That is the 1 business day shipping.
@ anon 3:42 am - I have the deep zinfandel beautiful baroque wunder under pants and they are nicely opaque. The pattern hides your underwear, particularly if you wear a darker color. The material is thicker and definitely on the warmer side, though, and it was a bit itchy when I first got them but it's gone away now that I've washed them. The inkwell BB material is a little thinner and wasn't itchy when I tried it on in the store.
@ anon 10:09 am - When you click through the photo of the PS WUC and the sizes go away - website illusion. ;-)
It was uploaded on the Canadian site awhile back. I've been to a couple stores in Ontario in the last week and both had lots of this colour in stock.
I'm going to a store this afternoon, I will look for you. Email me asap, hopefully this gets posted before I head to the store in an hour. jennifer.m.oke @ gmail.com
Is anyone willing to angel me the ps wuc in a 6? It would be very appreciated!
Anonymous at 4:41 am, the PS WUC absolutely run large. I am a consistent size 4 also, and have also never sized down. When I tried on the 4's in store, they were much bigger than any other WU's I've ever had. I tried on the 2, and it was very comfortable. I stayed with the 4's because I was afraid of a sheerness factor with the regular luon (and could see a little in the mirror), but the 2 honestly would've worked just as well.
@LLA - Do you know if the Run: For Your Life crops have changed since last year. I have the limitless blue wee are from space ones from then. Some of the recent reviews are really bad saying they are baggy in the knees.
They must be having supply chain problems, because otherwise I don't see why they would skip uploading more new stuff in the prime pre-Christmas week (especially when so many people may be done their shopping and looking for a little something for themselves).Did Canada ever get the lace reflective run gloves? The mitten showed up, but I wanted the gloves! Not sure if I missed them or if they were never there.
Got my Open Your Heart Pants in the mail today, not very impressed. I thought they would be a cozy, thin sweatpants material. Instead they are simply more like a thicker tshirt material, nothing impressive. They are just like leggings that you could get at any store. I wouldn't say they are worth the $88 price tag :o(
If you are looking for size 6 PS WUC's, shoot me an email at karenswanson82 at gmail dot com. Mine are arriving in the mail later today. They were an impulse buy and I don't think I really want/need them.I'm in the US, by the way.
Hi Ladies,Is anybody willing to trade a size 2 In a Flash skirt for a size 4? Or does anybody have a size 4 that did not work in the brisk bloom print? Thanksheatherz@comcast.net
I saw a woman wearing the ps WUC in the grocery store today, I was a little shocked to see them on someone so soon. She must have been an 8 or 10 (tall and built). They looked great on her and not busy looking at all. I am too busy Christmas shopping and have not made it to the store, I am sure they are all gone. I live on East Coast US.
@11:17 I was curious how the Open Your Heart Pants were since my store never got them. My daughter wants new sweat pants for Christmas do you think these are really bad? I was hoping for thick French terry. Please advise. Thank you
Just got my PS WUC in the mail. I am a size 4 in most lulu bottoms (6 in speeds and some run crops, 2 in still and DS pants) and the 4 fits me well in these too. They are definitely better than most recent WU runs in terms of sheerness, but I can get a glimpse of my pink striped underwear in a deep bend- it's not a deal breaker for me though. The diagonal striping on the rear is indeed very flattering. My only hesitation in keeping them is that I have so many black pants and crops- I wish they had come in the Zinfandel/pink combo instead but I think I will wear them to hot yoga tonight anyway. Happy shopping, Canadians. I hope LuLu comes through for you and stocks them in your stores, if they aren't going to upload them to your side of the website.
I'll angel for you. I'm heading to my store soon. I'll let you know when I get them or not
Tried on both wup and wuc in parallel stripe and the crop is definitely more flattering imo. Also look at the stitching at the bottom, I noticed on one pair I tried on that the black stitching overlapped the white stripe, only on one leg, making it look weird and different from the other leg. Personally I would try and get this in store if possible, so you can check the stitching. :)
It's now 4:30PM EST - still no WMTM upload?
i got my PS WUP and WUC today. i will be returning the WUP, size 2 if anyone wants them before i return them. just message me at emcginnis75 @ yahoo.com
Why not try Ivivva? They have some sweatpants and fleece pants that might work for her.
totally agree with @anon 11:03 - however in my size 4's i just couldn't live with the way the stripe folded on the but it looked really bad and also overall they were so loose - didn't really feel like WU crops - got the size 2 in the mail today and they are 100% better - compared to my quite strip i would say the overall fabric on the PS is just looser - not woven as tight - but in size down they look and feel very good - my QS by far is still a favorite over the PS but these are a wonderful addition to my collection. ps my store had up to size 10 in the PS crop - sold out of 2-6 but they had a few size 8s and 10s
I'm a TTS 6. I received mine today & they fit PERFECTLY in that size...I cannot imagine sizing down in them. FYI I am lean & in good shape so I'm not concerned with something being form fitting on me...I don't recommend sizing down based on my experience.
To the person who asked if Luxtreme pills - I know you asked LLA, but just wanted to add my two cents that I' haven't had a problem with pilling on any of my luxtreme items. They've all seen quite a bit of friction/rubbing from running and crossfit. I am not particularly careful with luxtreme (at all) and it holds up really really well.
I was lucky enough to purchase PS WUC today, I am an athletic lulu size 6. I tried both 4 & 6 and by far the 4 fit best. 6 will be fine if you don't have the option but the compression of the 4 is amazing. Not sheer. Reminds me of the old Lulu. Size down for the best fit!!
I received my PS WUCs and brisk bloom speed tights today. I think both items are running slightly large. I got my typical size 6 in both. Both pair are opaque and no undies visible in deep bend (my hubs checked). The crops are super soft. They are a bit shocking to the eye, but I think very flattering. I'm super happy with both. Definitely worth the lost sleep waiting for the upload. :)
Anon @ 1:08 PM - who were you offering to angel for? If it was for a pair of ps WUCs in a 6 - I asked for an angel above..Please email at graymontgomery at gmail dot com if you got a pair!
I am a bit between an 8 and a 6 right now, but am still ordering 8s. I received my size 8 PS WUC today, and I think that I could have easily worn a 6. They ate super soft and opaque, but I can tell that they will begin to shift down in the hips and thighs with wear.
I didn't like the feel of them, the print was too subtle, and they were sheer. I ended up returning mine.
That was a pretty weak upload. It's the week before Christmas!! No WMTM either. Boo. In other news, there is still a pending charge for the PS WUCs that I TRIED to order Mon night and will certainly never be getting. Guess I'll be calling the GEC later.
Hi thanks! Someone already has for me so hopefully you can help someone else out! :)
I'm not surprised they've held back on a wmtm upload. Boxing Day is next week and it's probably all being held for that reason.Shipping comment...don't get it. Aside from overseas, it's awesome that they offer free regular shipping. It's not a problem for me to wait.
I went to my store, they were out of both WUP & WUC of PS. :(
From downunder, so sad you guys didnt get your second upload for the week. For once our downunder NZ/AUS site have offered us a reasonable selection of goodies twice weekly for the last 2-3 wks. I always check your uploads too as I have a forwarding address in Portland. Only down here the upload time in round 6.45pm the following day to you. Disappointing they didnt do a final and plentiful upload for the final run into christmas. I got the PS WUcrops in my TTS 4 and they are fantastic. I can see why people may size down but I like the way mine fit. We got the modern racer back in my local store in white, grey and black. Wow what a beautiful soft casual tank. I went up to a size 6 like I do in my racerbacks for a loose fit like a 105f. My store educators liked the 4 better but I find with alot of lulu its a personal preference how it fits you and what kind of look your going for. Definitely a casual top for me given I have like 40 CRBs! I hope those of you hankering for the PS WUC get them somehow. Please Santa!!! To all of you who follow this site and to LLA, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Look forward to sharing with you as Laurent makes his mark on lululemon:)
well that was a lame upload :( I did pop into my store to exchange the winter sprinter hoodie/pullover (arms seems too short and the thumbholes were yanking uncomfortably) and snagged a fleecy keen jacket in the deep zinfandel which was marked down so yay to that :)
12:13 the Open Your Heart pants are not fleece AT ALL. They are just a thicker T-shirt type material. If you are looking for comfy sweats for your daughter I would get the Calm & Cozy pants. Those are super comfortable, and warmer.
I feel like the pants sizing has gotten a little bigger in the last few months. My luxtreme run crops especially feel like they're running big. I've been a size 4 across the board for years, and these last few months I've put on a bit of weight (stress eating :/) and my street clothes are too tight, but somehow the new LLL is comfortable in my usual 4. It is odd.Anyone else notice this?Also, I bet that their supply chain issues are the reason we didn't see a big upload on Wednesday. Tough year for LLL.
I ordered PS WUCs Tuesday after all the hype. Also ordered the beautiful baroque deep zinfandel WUCs, coco pique WUPs, green restless tank, and the angel blue no limits. Stuff arrived today. I thought I would be returning the striped WUC, but they're actually amazing. Thick, soft, and not sheer. Unfortunately, that WASN'T the case for my beautiful baroque zinfandel crops, the ones I actually planned to keep. I bent over, and they were so sheer that you could actually read the label on the tag through the pants (and I fall very comfortably into the appropriate size range). Really disappointed because I love the feel of the fabric. It's just super sheer. The coco pique WUPs are as LLA described (I think I actually went "oooohhhhh" out loud when I opened them up). Soft, thick, warm. Definitely a keeper.I think I may send back the no limits tank as well. I have a bunch of them since they're pretty much all I wear, so I don't see the point in keeping a $64 tank if I'm not in love with the color like I was with cornflower and plum.Anyone else have sheerness issues with the BB WUCs?
i have a size 2 pr of PS WUC they came today and while i like them, i don't love them nearly as much as my quiet stripe. before i return them wanted to offer them to anyone looking for a size 2 (US only, i'm so sorry, i can't send to Can, i would not be able to track the package to insure delivery)
Anonymous @7:49pm - I also found the BB WUCs extremely sheer.
@8:15 I need a size 2! Pm me at phxwilliams@hotmail please if you still have them.
I ended up with an extra size 4 PS WUC after the upload snafu if anyone is looking for a pair
Ooooh I might be interested. Are they really much bigger than usual size 4 WUCs? My email is stef.sull at gmail.
Mine were way sheer. I could read the tag through the pants. Not cute!
Anyone still have a size 2 PS WUC? I ordered my regular 4 and think I need to size down. If I end up with a 2 then I have a size 4 up for grabs!
Is your size 2 still available?
I will take them! Graymontgomery at gmail dot com.
@anon 10:12 - yes it is. if you want them please let me know how to contact you. if not, i'm going to send them back this afternoon. thanks!
6:21 the deep v tank is a really nice tank that can be worn casually and also for light workouts. If you are busty size up. I got the 8 and I am 34 D sometimes DD and I am 117# and 5'-3" I just bought the light purple one in the WMTM I think $29 is a great price for that top.M

Thanks for your response LLA ... thought I'd clarify for you. In regard to the shipping charges, I was referring to the non-holiday (approx 11 months out of 12) shipping charges being exorbitant. Since there were only 2 new items uploaded on Wednesday night, there was nothing to order, thus the overnight express shipping offered was meaningless to me & others who ordered nothing that night. After the holidays, lululemon will go back to charging an extra $20 or $30 for upgraded shipping. Standard shipping is great for those on the west coast, but for both Canadians & Americans living further east, shipments take a FULL week to arrive. Again, I appreciate you taking the time to reply & all the valuable info you provide. Yours is definitely, again imo, the only worthwhile lulu blog. Happy Holidays! :)
Regarding the Parallel Stripe Wunder Unders, both pants & crops, I found them TTS as did my daughter & her friends who work in the fitness industry. Although the fabric in these pants & crops is softer & stretchier than in others, the waistband fit would lend itself to muffin top problems for anyone who isn't extremely slender in addition to being fit. The Parallel Stripes hit our local store earlier this week & they were recommending that customers try them on first in their regular size. Just another set of opinions as input regarding fit.
Does anyone know when they'll be making more CRB's in new colors? Winter Orchid, Deep Zinfandel, Soot, etc.?
@ anon 1:07 pm- Thank you! I think there is another lulu distribution center opening up in the midwest soon, somewhere like Ohio or something like that so hopefully east coast shipments will arrive sooner.
@ anon 1:21 pm - I think if CRBS were going to come in those colors we'd already see them. I think our best chance is hoping for a curtain call of those colors in an upcoming season. It does seem odd CRBs did not come in those colors. It could be there were production issues and they never made it.
