|Bettona Classic Pant|
I've been trying to convert my one friend to a lululemon fan but she likes Athleta because her Bettona pants ($79) have pockets in them. These are pretty cute pants that have both front and back pockets with rivets so they look kind of like jeans but are really super soft yoga pants. They are made of Pilayo, an 88% supplex nylon and 12% spandex mix. They are very soft, like old lulu soft, but a little thinner and a bit stretchier. They had decent coverage but I thought less compression than luon. If you read the reviews on the Athleta website a lot of people like these pants for traveling and casual wear purposes. They also have a crops with the same pockets. I liked these pants quite a bit for their different look but since I have drawers full of nylon yoga pants I can pass on these at full price. If I come across a nice coupon code I might spring for them.
|Bare to Run Knicker|
I know the Relay line is the Athelta run line but my store only had a couple colors and none in my size to try on. SoCal is a run region so I don't know why their stock was so low.
|Tie Dye Seamless Tank|
Update - I wore the tank for a few hours last night and the bra band rolls up and cuts into me so it's going back to the store.
|Athleta Haven Wrap|
All in all, I don't see getting a ton of workout wear from Athleta but I think I will be looking there for the odd casual piece or two.
I only had a few minutes to hit the lululemon store in the same mall and I ended up buying the Pinkelicious Cardio Kick Tank for $19. They had all the CKs marked down to $19 so I wonder if the website will follow.
