Just got back from the store and I am heartbroken! I was waiting so long for the Camo WU's and they are are sheer as pantyhose. The sales girls were saying "yes, we were joking if you are going to wear these for Yoga stand in the back row". I sense a recall. I got a 2 (I sized down for compression) and am trying to decide if I will keep them for casual wear with a long top. I also bought the Chai II in white and I went with a 4 which is the same size I bought in the last Chai II run. I wear mine a lot so I picked one up in white. IT's very pretty.
For anyone who has seen anything swiftly in zing pink - how close does it bring to mind Pepto Bismol? It's an honest concern.
I love the dark colored heathered wunder under pants on the girl with the orange cardi. I've been waiting patiently for what seems like forever for some WUC with cute waistbands or heathered charcoal!!!
oof.. that second to last picture the camo WUs look so sheer at the knee
Oh my gosh are the camos making a comeback?? I have contemplated buying a pair off ebay many times and lost a couple bids...they are sooooo insanely priced on ebay!! That would be awesome to see these in stores :)
Picture with Pink crops clearly shows her belly button! I vCan only imagine how many dimples and flaws this pink will enhance on me! Stay with darker colors please!
Has anyone tried on the baroque blue inspires on yet? My closest store doesn't have them yet and I wanted to know if they were sheer before I order them.
No items in these photos appeal to me at all. They all just look like duds to me. Doesn't draw me into the store either. Could have popped in on my errands after work but passed.
that camo is weird- again lulu screws it up- nuff said!!!!!
It looks like frond ia making a comeback, based on the "new" stuff on the HK website.
Scored the pink WUC today, hoorayyyy! I love love love them. I also scanned the WMTM rack and scored the Keep it Cozy Crew in plum for $39!!
No camo WU or Chai time tops uploaded to Canadian side - wonder if it's in-store only? Will check out my store tomorrow. Any fit reviews on the zing pink WUC? I have yet to do a bright color bottom and may branch out and do this one IF it's opaque enough.
If I wore that pullover and crops in any gym I've ever stepped into (much less worked out in) I'd lose 10lbs in sweat alone! Hmm...
They are very sheer! I could clearly read the tag through them even when I sized up. And yes, they show every flaw. They made my legs look like curdled pepto bismol, and I am a size 4 in my 20's....
Totally see through! They had baroque blue reversible WUC's in store today. Wait for those if you want bright! Way more flattering.
That's pretty much it for me....I'll spend my money elsewhere! I've been waiting for the camo print and they release sheer ones. What a joke.I think I've already given them enough chances!
The camo is a non event, you can hardly even see that its a camo print. If your gona do it lulu, do it right:(
Was disappointed in the camo crops--really can't tell they're camo until you get up close. In fact the color variations on make it look like your legs have a lot of cellulite. However was pleasantly surprised when I tried the chai time II and LOVED it--sized down & it was the perfect piece for to/from/after class! (covers the bum)
I wonder if they found a stash of old wren camo WUP and just sent them out, they sound just like the previous release - super sheer.
First anon--do NOT SIZE DOWN in Luon for "compression."It is NOT luxtreme and NOT meant to fit compression.The luon is supposed to lay flat on your body and not be compressive. If you're "sizing down for compression," you will wear the material out faster and it WILL be sheer on you.Source: I worked in the stores for 2 years.
I totally agree with you, @10.23,The camo is just subtle enough to give a nice lumpy cellulite effect. I just ordered the zing WUC after reading that someone thought they were opaque...no lumpiness? I was hopeful. But I too have thin legs and in the Paris perfection WUC revers. my knees looked lumpy (Paris imperfection haha) Ive had 7 kids and after losing the weight every time I have a little looseness esp in my knee area. The light colors really accentuate any leg imperfections. Does anyone have any advice on specific exercises I can do to tighten things back up in my legs? I do lots of squats and have strong thin legs but they still look icky in some of the colored pants. Any advice would be appreciated. I do love the pink pants and would love to be able toWear them. But I'm staying away if it's gonna be curdled pepto! : )
Try a barre class! It's the only thing I have ever done that has helped my legs.
the zing pink looks exactly like pepto bismol in real life. I gues if you have cellulite or hips, they will be unflattering.I am not digging those camo WUC. I agree with 11:48 I would not size down with any luon items. I really don't think in TTS. In tops I can be anywhere from a 4 to an 8 depending on the cut. on bottoms anywhere from 4 to six. Sizing is random and it is not just lululemon.M
you should go see a good plastic surgeon sounds like a possible easy fix?? at least you could go see what they say and then you'd know.
anyone in the US see the camo print WUs in store? I am in NYC and am dying for them. the product alerts I have seen so far do not include the camo WUs or the grandpa sweater I am looking for. ugh.
Kinda bummed...the camo wunder unders are exactly the same as before and yes they are kinda on the sheer side so i sized up! I wanted camo soo bad so I still bought them. I'm going to wait to take the tags off just in case they come out in a more vibrant camo color like some of the mens stuff. I've been waiting forever for a vibrant camo like philip lims camo. When people buy camo they want it to look like camo not pants that might be discolored! I kinda wanted real tree camo if you wear it right it can look stunning.
@12:22 am If it bothers you a ton go with the prints like the coco pique, herringbone, denim, I find those look the best. Try deadlifts a lot of people forget to tighten the backside and that can also tighten all around. Also your skin takes time to come back to normal so be patient :)
Just wanted to share that I picked up the Post Practice Cardi last night and am in love- haven't taken it off! I tend to avoid lulu's knits bc I find them to be snaggy/poor quality, but this sweater is really well done. Probably not worth the price tag, but I justified that with not spending or liking that much the past few months (sick, I know). That said, if it was under $100 I'd buy one in every color.
Just tried the Zing Pink WUCs in store and found them to be super sheer and unflattering too :(Glad I didn't order them!
What's the price point on the Chai time II sweater?
Pink zing and camo are sheer. I am debating on keeping the pink zing, because I like the bright, almost fluorescent quality in the color. For the person who asked if it looks like pepto bismol, I did not think of that reference until you mentioned it. It honestly reminds me a slightly fluorescent pink, like a color Gap made in their skinny khakis two summers ago.For Anonymous who asked about about the baroque blue run inspires, I did not find them to be sheer. However, I did try the bb WUP yesterday and found them to be a little sheer, but definitely not as sheer as the camo or pink zing. I have not tried on my bb run inspires at home again to see if they are the same slight sheerness.
