Fatigue Green Studio Pants

Zing Pink Energy bra

New Green - Bali Green
Canada got Wee Space Fatigue Green WUCs



A few cute new items were uploaded tonight. I really love the Fatigue Green Studio Pants but would like to try these on in the store. Also, a new green was unveiled - Bali Green. It looks a lot like Very Green on my computer screen. I ended up getting the Zing Pink Energy Bra tonight.

What did you order?

Nothing for me! Again, whats with the harsh black contrast piping on the speed shorts (apex stripe lavender dusk)? Yuck.

I am going to give the Mula wrap a try - in the black. I am hoping it is a little more flattering in person than some of the photos. I also grabbed a new pair of speeds, soot light. I was tempted to try the lavender - but thought they just looked a little young. I was also tempted by the zing pink Energy - but I find getting a sweaty Energy bra off after a workout suck a pain.

Did anyone else notice the pop plaid pacesetter was pulled? It was still in stock earlier tonight, in all sizes but one.

Can someone explain why the Canadian Lululemon website have different new items available? Example, WU in Wee Space Green only available in Canada. Also can I order from Canada's website and ship to US? TIA

This is the ugliest collection yet. Do these colors even hang together as a palette? And isn't army green a fall color?

It's hilarious that they named the hideous wrap "mula Banda" -- I believe that is your "root lock" just above your bum hole. And that is just the perfect name for the design.

I sure hope the dull army color palette is not what's to come. They look like fall colours to me. Does not put me into a spring shopping mood :(

I bought the fatique green wafs WUC and also the fresh teal Yogi Tee from a previous upload.

Why on earth would they decide to put words on the back of the Scuba???????

There's also Cadet Blue on the CA side

Would love some sweats in the fatigue green. Or a CRB. Hopefully more will come.

Nothing for me. The lavender speed shorts and Soot are ugly. I was about to buy the scuba before I saw the nice asana logo on it. Why lulu???

Anonymous said...

I think the Wee Are From Space Fatigue Green WU's are already sold out on the Canadian side. When you go into the item the colour disappears.

I want this Wee are from space in a CRB please! I like this and the Heathered Fatigue Green. I'll need to see Bali Green in person.

I didn't buy anything else, nothing of interest.

I would've totally bought the fatigue WUC but nooooooo they didn't post on the US site. Lame.

ok so they must have heard us last time when we screamed at them.....CRB in very green. Shall we hold our breath for a Bali green CRB?.....PLEASE!!!!!:)

got the new in the flow crops - stripe blk/grey - also ebb to street tank in same stripe. do not plan on wearing as a matching set!

also got the odd lavender dusk striped speed short with the yucko blk trim. will wear with a charcoal or blk tank...very limiting. But I love all things lavender dusk.

i think "nice asana" would habe been cute embroidered on the inside of the hem.

I like the new colors. I prefer looking like an adult instead of wearing bright pastels better suited for my friends' kids.

For those who noticed how long the zing pink No Limits tank looked in the previous photos, Lulu has redone the photos with a different model

It's 5:55AM here in Winnipeg and the green WAFS WUs are not on the website. Did they sell out that fast?

Those Dance Studio Pants are gorgeous in that colour. Too bad they STILL haven't fixed the quality on the rolling waist bands! I hate spending that much, only to have to return them after the first wear.

boringggg...nothing for me again!

Sarah said...

Any of you in LLA land also FRUSTRATED that since they have gone to lengths the studio pant is only available in the new colors for the regular length!?!? I'm 5'8" and the regular is too short every time I have tried it on in store. Really want the new green, but don't want to spend $ on a too short pant! I posted on heylululemon about it, but starting to think that site is just a front and no one actually does anything about what is on there! Grrrrrrr..... Go back to making one length lulu so I can buy some new studio pants!

Fatigue green! Thank you! It's deep enough that it not as drab as an Army green, and thank goodness they are not done with BB! If I trusted the website I'd have ordered at least 5 things, but I'll have to cross my fingers my stores get these things.

OT I was so bored with everything the past weeks/months that I bought a 105 tank. I have no idea what the hype is, it was the biggest waste of $50 I've spent in a long time. I wore it to Bikram's yesterday and it looked like a smock on me (and I sized down). I don't work hard to stay in shape to wear smocks. And then it was easily 4 inches longer by the end of class. I think M was right about being a swim suit cover up!

W said...

What is up with the phrasing on the Scuba?! I loved the heathered gray until I saw "nice asana".... Really, Lulu?!!?!

I like the In the Flow crops but worried about sizing like usual in the flow for me... 8 is sheer when I do the bend test, 10 is falling down. Ugh.

Any reviews on the wee stripe Wunder Under crop? I want something other than plain black but not colors yet!

New colors: Fatigue green(heatherd) , Cadet blue (heathered) and bali breeze

kepp the special notes in cursive Inside the hood "Nice Asana" iron on ....FAIL

There is also a cadet blue colour in the race with grace crop on the Canadian side. As well as a Heathered cadet blue swifty headband.

Anonymous said...

I love some if the items on Canadian side reversible wee gray stripe wu, cadet race with grace pant. Really confused about race with grace some (older uploads) have the side stripe only half way down the pant leg (which I did not like) the new Bali stripe has it all the way up (so much for consistency lulu). Does anyone know what cadet color option does with the velvet stripe?

I actually really like the new Fatigue Green color. I know I may be in the minority, but it's a tone that works with my coloring.

I agree with LLA that the Studio Pants look good in Fatigue, but I know I reach for that style less frequently than more my more fitted pants; therefore, I am undecided as to whether I'll order them.

The wrap, even in the Green, is just too baggy and busy for my taste. I'm petite so this top would consume me.

I guess I'm just hoping the Fatigue is part of a cohesive palette -- coordinating with more than black -- and emerges in more flattering styles.

Indeed, I was originally attracted to Lulu because of its thoughtful palette and flattering simplicity -- with a little flair.

Unlike many clothes, I think the very best Lulu designs actually look BETTER on athletic or curvy women than on a waifs. I often dismiss a piece hanging off of the most frail LLL model & then reconsider it once seeing it on the educators. (Thanks again for the blog, LLA!!) Sadly, IMO the wrap is equal-opportunity ugly.

Bottom line: I may get the pants and I hope the new colors, including Bali, are part of a plan.

I love that Wee Space fatigue! I'm hoping they offer it in a running capri!

I am debating on ordering the Core Kicker tank. I don't normally do the tanks with built-in bras though.

Anonymous said...

I am breaking up with Lululemon. Too many quality issues and now I just went to put on a pair of macro/micro stripe wunder unders and they are pilling! I have only worn them 3 times. Either I buy from the sale section or nothing at all. And I'm an instructor!

I can't justify the pricing anymore. The quality is horrible. Seams coming unsewn, sheerness, tiny holes...I am done. I am going to be taking my business over to Athleta. I checked out some of their leggings this past weekend and I felt they were a bit sturdier.

And to echo what others are saying. These colors are really just plain horrible. Either lulu needs to lower prices to match the quality or do something drastic to improve the quality control issues they are experiencing.

And I agree---nothing interesting last night. Nothing at all.

Jill Erwich said...

@anon 10:34pm well at least its not in rhinestones?

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:13 am - I do not get the appeal of Athleta, though if I got a 30% instructor discount I might feel differently. I cannot stand the feel of their polyester fabrics - all the pants I try on feel hot and not very breathable to me. The styling is not compelling either. Though their pants are cheaper than lulu their prices are higher on their tops - for polyester. I get lululemon is very lackluster so far this January but I am not getting the appeal of Athleta.

Anonimouse said...

Anon @ 6.28 Don't even suggest it!

I'm also happy to see a few other colours than baby pink, baby blue and baby green. It's not in what I need, but baby steps Lulu, baby steps.

Torres Girls said...

Nothing for me, because 've been waiting for camo. Did I miss it online?

For those of you wondering- green WUC sold out in all sizes within 30 minutes ( on Canadian site). Perhaps after all the blues, pastels, neons, and boring white/grey/black, people are hungry for something different....

kathy said...

@ anon 3:51pm-Hey fellow Winnipegger! Yes, the wafs green were uploaded at midnight. I was in the system right away and both size 2 and 12 were either sold out or not available? Snatched a pair and hoping they're like my parallel beauties. Good luck in your search!

To my eyes Bali Green looks like the tropical blue-greens we saw 3-4 years ago: Caribe, Beachy Green, lighter version of Teal Zeal, etc.

I have enough of these colors, but I think n00bs will appreciate this "new" hue.

Anonymous said...

I agree with 6:13 about Athleta. Tho, this is not a new love for me as most of the dresses in my closet from the past 3 years are from Athleta. I wasn't a fan of their workout gear until this year when 1, I started having trouble finding LLL designs that interested me, 2, I was tired of looking like a clone when I went to the studio (or anywhere for that matter), and 3, Athleta stepped up their game (okay, they stole LLL's most popular designs. But that's to be expected in fasion apparel).

Someone on this blog once posted about how LLL designs all their own items and Athleta buys designs from all over. That used to appeal to me (so maybe it's an age thing) and perhaps still would if LLL kept up with the unique details and cuts.

I still think LLL's pants are far superior, even in their diminished state. But I just returned my last 3 Swiftlys and bought a bunch of Athleta's Breathe line. No see-through, no snags. I also love Athleta's run skirts...which are far more functional and cuter than LLLs. I suffer from eczema, so I'm sensitive to polyester. But I haven't had trouble buying tanks that are over 50% (my threshold). The new "herringbone" empowerment tank is 20%.

But if LLL would go back to the Swiftlys of the past, I'd hop back on that train. That's why I still browse LLA. Loyalty in retail is not my thing ,-)

I got the WAFS green WUC & Black striped Ebb to street tank. When I bought my WAFS the size 2 and 12 was already sold out, sounds like people are really taking the "Size down" advise online seriously! I went with my TTS 4 like my PS WUC.
At anon the 105f singlet is supposed to be loose and airy, if you don't like that style why did you buy it? :) I love mine, the fabric is so soft and keeps me cool & very comfortable in yoga.

Anonymous said...

Don't be too jealous of us Canadians for getting the green wee stripe wuc. When I looked at the upload at 6 am (mountains standard time) they were already gone. I get that the scarcity model is their thing, but at least produce enough so we have some kind of chance of buying them.

Anonymous said...

I don't get the appeal of Athleta either and they do offer me the 30% instructor discount. Their clothes fit too big and weird not to mention their cuts and fabric aren't very comfortable.
Something I keep telling myself is that these designs were probably decided upon long before the new changes in management so the hopefully the quality will be back. Any ideas if I'm just wishful thinking?

Anonymous said...

When did Indian Teal come out (shown in the Coastal Tank? I missed the boat on that one!

Anonymous said...

I'm also on the Athleta bandwagon. This article is about how the athleta & lulu fabrics are nearly identical: http://www.businessinsider.com/why-lululemons-pants-are-more-expensive-than-athletas-2013-10

But I even like their poly blend of fabric too (used in the Bettona pants) though I wear those for casual wear & not to work out in. This winter I got some of Athleta's plush tech/fleece gear & while I like rulu better, I though the Athleta fabric was very nice for winter running.

I hate some designs of both brands (hating more of Lulu right now & digging Atleta's spring styles), but I'm starting to think Athleta has more value overall. A few weeks ago I got 2 pairs of on-sale (& very cute) running skirts & a new spring style of tights for $100 total after using a $10 reward coupon. And with that purchase I got another $20 reward coupon to use in the future. Plus I love that i can return something to Athleta after I work out in it--i have many too-big products from Lulu that I didn't realize were too big until I ran in them. Rewards, sales & good return policies are not part of Lulu's vocabulary, and that really turns me off.

The green sold out in about an hour. I checked at midnight Mountain time and they were on the site, but when you clicked on the thumbnail, no sizes were available.

I would have gotten them if they were. I'm hoping some stores still have the camo left or that they are still coming in. I love the darker greens.

Wow, I believe this us the 4th upload in a row for me where I bought nothing! A whole month without anything new from Lulu! Crazy! I have to wonder if my husband has been working closely with the design team this past month...

Megan Finstad said...

Its all a matter of opinion. Not every colour palate will appeal to everyone. I really like these new greens but don't expect everyone too. I'm suppose to be saving money for Seawheeze registration (fingers crossed) yet some how bought a pair of the space dye crops last night...oops. I will have to see them in person to make sure I really like them though.
Lol really really not a fan of the wording on the back of the scuba though.

Anonymous said...

4:41 the 105F tank does stretch if you get it really wet, like in hot or bikram yoga. it is perfect as a bathing suit cover up.
As you said LLA, I also don't get the appeal of Athleta, they use way too much polyester and their designs are too earthy mama for me.

wow, I saw the gray speeds last night & decided to sleep on it before buying since the last thing I "need" is another pair of speeds. But I have been wanting a gray pair for a long time. Just checked the site & they are completely sold out. Not even 1 day. So frustrating. There is nothing else I want to buy- it's all hideous. I was also interested in the wee space WUC but not uploaded in the US & I'm sure I would have missed out on those too. I really love the lulu I own, but I'm getting really sick of these games & BS just to buy a new pair of shorts or pants. I

just bought my first item from Athleta. At least I know I will have zero problems returning it whenever I want. I agree that none of their stuff used to be appealing but I think some of the new stuff is nice. I am still a die hard WU fan though, I hate seams down the sides of the legs like Athleta's crops have. But it seems like I'll be sticking to the ones I have & not buying new ones thanks to lulu's horrible business model.

Anonymous said...

Totally agree on the Studio pants length. My favourite pant and I have it in so many colours. So frustrated that they now don't make all the lengths in all the colours (that goes for other styles too - Astro pant for instance) I think other companies don't define the style as 'Studio Pant Long' 'Studio Pant Regular' they just have 'Studio Pant' and then you choose size and length. If they must limit the production then they could make all the colours in the long which can at least be shortened.

I have a pair in Wren already, which I lined myself (much prefer the lined) so, whilst I like the new green and would get if it was lined and long enough I'm not too bummed about it.

Anonymous said...

LLA- have you seen the new 2014 line? So cute. They've really stepped up their game. I ordered capri tights and they feel more like old school Luon than ever before. I tried Athleta about a year ago and felt exactly the same as you, but they have made huge strides. I'm seeing more and more of it at my crossfit gym, which used to be all lulu all the time. I am also seeing more Nike.

Anonymous said...

I bought a Mula wrap yesterday in store (black), I love it. I like the cut, I am wearing it now with a long sleeve t, vinysasa scarf, jeans and uggs. I like it unzipped. Even my 17 year old daughter approves, "funky jacket Mom". I did not like the green wrap though, if it was solid green yes but the gray ruined it.

Anonymous said...

LLA- I've been reading all the Energy Bra sizing change issues. Do you find you now have to size up from your normal energy bra size? I'm asking because I want to order one and unsure if I should size up or not, or if that issue has been resolved. I value your input. Thank you!

Anonymous said...

I'm with anon 6:13AM.
I get the R&D discount with lulu, and I get the 30% discount with Athleta. Although many of Athleta's designs are not, in my opinion, as cute as Lululemon's, I think their designs are getting better, their colors are getting better, generally their quality is better, and their return policy is hard to beat. I still prefer lululemon bras, and the CRB, but for a lot if other things, I find myself purchasing more and more Athleta.

Anonymous said...

Oh yes, I would love a Bali or Fatique CRB. Solid please. I like stripes, but there have been too many of striped tanks lately. I get so much more use out of the solid racerbacks.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 10:38 am - I am not a good source for Energy bra input because my bra/tank size changed over the past 6 months or so and I've sized down in them so I can't really compare to previous.

@ anon 10:17 am - I did see the 2014 and it's a lot more colorful than it used to be, and very lululemon "inspired" to my eye, but the heavy use of polyester fabrics really annoy me. I cannot see paying $90+ for an ill-fitting polyester top with not nearly as great a resale value as lululemon. I tried the cute striped Athleta crops that everyone loves but the waistband was too loose and the fabric felt hot. I don't spot much athleta out and about where I live - (certainly none at the Disney Tinkerbell race I just ranm which had a ton of lulu but SoCal is a lulu stronghold) but spot a lot of Under Armour at my gym. Though UA also uses polyester, I love their bright colors and patterns but the crops don't work for me - they slide down.

Anonymous said...

Nordy's sent me an email the other day with their latest Zella offerings. There was some really cute stuff that I'm going to check out at the store (I'm so jaded, I am doing more in store shopping these days than online since getting burned by Lulu so many times--sheer pants, uneven sizing, unfortunate fabrics, etc.)

Anonymous said...

I went into my store today and they had the new wee stripe black heathered black/black reversible wunder unders. They are soft and fit so well. They are TTS but because they are soft they are not as compressive. The stitching on the black side is black unlike other reversible bottoms as of late where the colored side stitching is on the black side. Love them. Bought them. :)

Anonymous said...

@anon 10:38, I have an energy bra from 2 years ago in a size 6 that fits perfectly. Just last week, I saw they had a few of the deep zinfandel stripe energy bras in clearance but went to try on the size 6 just in case. It was a good thing I did because the band was way too tight and the straps dug in giving me back fat. I literally looked like I was exploding out of it (I'm only a 34C). So I would definitely have had to go up a size if I had wanted it.

I decided against it because I find that for me, LLL bras don't work anymore. They rely on compression and literally flatten my chest out but don't provide enough coverage so I end up with my boobs looking squished flat with flattened cleavage popping out...not a pretty picture lol. I like Nike and Victoria's Secret bras much more.

Anonymous said...

I'm also not a 105 singlet fan, although I like the fabric I find the fit too loose and droops too low under the arms. I can see how it would be comfy/cute as a bathing suit cover-up but I certainly wont be spending $52 for just that.

Before you cry too much about the fatigue wee space dye WUC — I went to my store to try a pair on. Sheer.

I'm not liking that fatigue color at all. Very blah.

But, that new Bali breeze is beautiful, very similar to Very Green, which I loved. Hoping we get some tanks and tops in this color!

Can anyone provide a review on the Ice Queen tights? I'm 5'7" and saw the inseam is only 25" - does it leave your ankles cold? The other run tights are 30" inseam. I don't understand why they would make a cold weather tight in a shorter length and am afraid to spend the $ if it's too short. thanks for everyone's feedback!! Thank you LLA!

I love Athleta's Odyssey Chaturanga Yoga Knicker!!!

They are perfect for yoga.

All I had to have was the Baroque Blue Ebb to Street Tank. Couldn't resist-I grab those tanks most often. Not into stripes...so those were all an easy pass. First thing I've purchased all month.
I need to mellow out anyway.

More on the Athleta topic. I shop at both Lulu and Athleta, but 90% of what I own is Lulu. If I find a garment I like, I buy it!  I lead training walks and spend 12+ hours each weekend in workout clothes plus 4 – 5 Pilates classes a week. I probably have more workout clothes than street clothes. My Lulu items make me feel pretty and not schlumpy when I am all sweaty after a long workout.

I find the styling of Atletha products (cuts, colors, fabrics) to be geared toward “middle America.” I was perusing the sale racks (extra 20% off!) and another shopper got so mad, “there are too many smalls in here!!” So I also think their demographic is the “real woman” (whatever that is) and sizes M – XL are their bread and butter. I find their prices are on par to Lulu when you look at level of stitching & extra detail on a garment – for me it is worth another $20 to see the detail on a jacket or to have it fitted that much better than a boxy cut garment. In the past 6 months or so I have also noticed Atleta borrowing details from Lulu for their products – like the ruffle on this Sweetness Skort: http://athleta.gap.com/browse/product.do?vid=1&pid=964025002

I have an older pair of Chaturangs pants and I find they have the amount of pilling and “wear” I see on my Lulu pants with the same amount of use.

I went to the flagship Athleta store in SF yesterday to try on some new pants for Pilates after feeling sort of bored by the current Lulu pant offerings. One pair I tired, the Odyssey Chaturanga Tight, was weirdly shiny and slick.... to which the sales person said, "oh, that is just the light in the dressing room.” Um, no. A fabric quality won’t change in different light. The label showed a high polyester content. Then, I tried on a basic black pair of Chaturanga pants and guess what?? While the fabric is nice and soft, they were TOTALLY sheer when I did a bend at the waist (not even a deep squat or full bend over.) You could see my undies in whole, not just a suggestion of them but the whole kit and caboodle. I own two pairs of Bettona leggings (which I Love for running errands and such since they are styled like pants not workout leggings) and went to replace them and found the fabric on the ones in the store much thinner than the ones I have at home.

Quality issues aren’t just a Lulu issue, it seems.

Anonymous said...

Anon at 4:41 - you nailed it on the 105 singlet - Biggest waste ever! That was one of those, oops... - and HELLO, EBAY!

BTW WhereTF is the zing pink all sport bra? Where is the baroque blue long sleeved swiftly???

Never liked the designs of athleta but their skirts do look generally cuter.

I'm 39 years old and I think lulu appeals to me still because I go between wanting zing pink (perhaps my younger side) and fatigue green (some might say more mature side), depending on my mood.

I too try to mix it up with other brands and not look like a clone.

@1038 and 1158
I agree with 1158- I had to size up in my energy bra too recently.... Annoying because I bought one in what I thought was my size (since the ones from previous years fits) from WMTM and it doesn't fit.

W said...

@1152
Thanks for the info! I think I'm going to grab a pair also!

I'm on the Canadian side and the wafs green sold out pretty much immediately. I wonder if they even made that much? I don't want them in a WU but I'd try them in a luxtreme crop. I haven't bought a luxtreme running crop in maybe 2.5 years though because of quality issues. All of my crops prior to that are amazing.

105 singlet, I don't get the appeal either and wouldn't buy one even if I was bored. Definitely wouldn't wear it in Bikram. I'm one of those less is better people - Shakti short and LLL Heat It Up bra. Pretty soon my new colab bra will be getting the Bikram test.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 3:42 pm - I agree with you, I find Athleta styling very pedestrian. If I was going to stray with a cheaper brand it'd be with Under Amour or Nike which has a more young and fun vibe. For pricier brands I'd go with Lorna Jane for brightness, though they have a lot of polyester for the price and I hate words all over my stuff; Sweaty Betty since they have a little more "style"; or Kira Grace which has distinctive sexy but not in a sleazy way look.

I bought the new plaid pacesetter and the BB Core Kicker tank. Bought the lavender striped one at the store and loved it, but was waiting for the BB one. If you like the luxtreme tanks, you will love it!

Anonymous said...

i will say that i ordered a pair of Athleta running crops because they have pockets on the sides. that feature is one of my favorite in Lulu's speed tights, but all of the crops right now do NOT have that feature. i know that they sometimes have them, but the last pair that had them had reviews that said they were sheer. plus, the Athleta ones were over $20 cheaper, so i'm willing to try them (especially with their return policy).

i'm also hoping that Lulu starts offering some solid CRBs. i don't love the Swiftly. and, while i like the fabric of the 105F, its a little long on my to wear with shorts. i do think Lulu missed the boat by not having the CRB in more of the popular solid colors (Baroque Blue, Deep Zinfandel, etc.).

I also tried on a pair in store and they were not sheer. I was wearing bright pink undies and I couldn't see them.

@ anon 2:30 pm - Ice Queen Tights just came in today. I got the *print, which is sold out but still the same tight. I am 5'7" with a 31" inseam. The tights are above my ankle knobby bone. I was caught off-guard as I didn't expect them to be almost as short as my Dash Crops. The reflective ankle turned up on the model makes it look almost bunched and decent length. She must be 5'5". I saw the 25" inseam but was so excited to have a cute reflective pair of winter tights finally appear. I will be keeping them because they are nice and compressive and soft and make my bum look yummy (hubby's words). Also, I usually wear the mid-height Smartwool or Sock Guy socks instead of low/no-show in winter so my ankles will still be covered.

Hey, LLA and energy bra readers:

A very good source told me LL experimented with a tighter band fit for the energy bra in recent months, hence size issues.

They're going back to the old fit going forth, so you should be good.

Also--the stores are all aware of this and if you have an issue with your energy bra size, come in and tell them about it and they'll make it right.

I have many LLL blue CRB's. However, if I see another blue CRB right now I will just shake my head. They have made way too many blues in recent years. A heathered khaki would be nice and a wee are from space green. Why can't we get a decent, brighter yellow that's not fluorescent? Mellow lemon was the only recent nice yellow.

Anonymous said...

Thanks @ anon 7:15 - you're exactly my measurements for height and inseam. I also wear mid-ankle smart wool in the winter! Appreciate your comments. I go between a 2 and 4 in Lulu bottoms - can you tell me how the sizing went for the Ice Queen tights? Still don't understand why they would make a winter running tight short. It's frustrating. Thanks in advance.

Anonymous said...

I agree that Athleta's target is women who wear larger sizes. I think that's why they have so many leggings with skirts built in. I know before I dropped 5 sizes I would never have worn leggings on their own. But now that I wear a small at Athleta, I make out on their sales because smalls are always available. I love that not only does stuff go on sale, but then the sales go on sale for 20-30% more.

It comes down to money for me. If money were no issue, I'd buy only Lulu. But I can't justify the Lulu expense on most things because while I run & go to the occasional yoga class, I mostly work out and do yoga in the home gym/yoga studio I invested tons of money in. I do invest in technical running gear because when I'm out running for 2+ hours and/or running in sub-freezing temps, Lulu's stuff can't be beat. But for working out at home and casual wear like going to the grocery store and taking the dog for a walk, it's very hard to justify the cost. I've tried stuff from Target, Old Navy & Gap but didn't like them--mainly the fit. I won't buy Nike because of their support of dog abuser Michael Vick. And, sorry, but I HATE UA's logo enough that I refuse to purchase anything from them. Athleta works for me as a cheaper price point, and I'm happy with what I've bought from them--and if I'm not happy, I can return it!

I saw the fatigue green WAFS crops today and they are very bright! They have a grass green color in them, I wish they were true camo

Ouch on the pedestrian comment!

I have a closet full of Lulu but live in my Athleta dresses and skirts. They never fail to turn heads. But then, I live the Florida sun and sand life, so what do we know?

I'm liking the Kira Grace site. I've not seen that label.

@ anon 8:01 am - Athleta's casual wear is better than the workout stuff imo.

I think the bright green is Bali Breeze. I actually like it mixed with fatigue green. It makes the print not so murky and dark.

They are "7/8" length. Supposed to be slightly cropped. I'm 5'3" and they barely hit my ankle bone. Cold weather running crops? Makes no sense.
