I got the twist bra in charcoal. love it. I deliberated awhile on if I should get the black also, but I figure I have enough black. Tried the wee stripe white/grey WUP and they were pretty good. Still a bit sheer in a bend, but not bad. I just think lighter colors such as this make you look thicker than you are so I passed on those. The Patience Pant in wee stripe black were nice too but not compressive. The Race with Grace crops were nice too in the charcoal (soot?), but I will wait for warmer weather before I break into the crops. I ended up getting the Baroque blue Ice Queen pant. The material is thick and compressive. I'm glad I got this color and will definitely do a crop in it. I was between sizes and ended up sizing down to the 4 as the 6 bunched more around my knees and under the butt. I figure the slight muffin top will go away after I lose the Christmas pounds...LOL.

Love love love the patience pants in blue. The black wee stripe is so sheer. I've found that to be the case in general with wee stripes that I've tried on. Interestingly, both are full-on but the blue is much more dense, compressive and softer. I stuck tts, and at 5'8", they hit my ankle bone in a size 10.

Everything here is an easy pass for me. I saw/felt the wee stripe medium grey/white CRB in store today and it's not as nice as I thought it would be. Too much poly imo.

Thanks @stylista diva for the review of the wee white/gray WUPs... You're the first I've heard who has tried them, and there haven't been any store photos this week. Do you know if they are more/less sheer than the recent zing pink? Would they be able to be worked out in or strictly casual wear? Thanks!

I don't get the lab skirt at all! What is it supposed to be for? Casual wear? The fabric suggests not.

Liquid said...

I'm quite frustrated that the camo wunder unders are not out on site yet. Does anyone know if they will be out? Or is there anyone who wants to sell theirs for a decent price? ;(

I just got my diamond dot WUP in the mail and they aren't bad. I am a fan of the high rise waist in general and at 7 months pregnant these still fit in my TTS. I have always had a big bum and always have problems with the sheerness of Lulu pants but these are great - and I have a very critical eye and good lighting at home! I would totally wear these without a bum covering top, in broad daylight.
I still miss the perfect balance of softness and compression that luon from the good ol' days had, though.

PS - that cardigan sucks. If I wanted something cozy AND schlumpy I'd wear one of my husband's old, worn out sweaters. Those are free.

I know I'm pretty alone in this opinion, but I really want the peplum tunic. It's not in stores in California. Does anyone know where I can find one? Is there an angel out there willing to help? Thanks in advance!

Nothing tempting for me either in the last few weeks. Nice relief for the wallet. I hope it stays this way for another few weeks. :)

Yeah that lab skirt is an ugly fugly mess!!!! Trying to be cool and unique just didn't work stylists you suck rotton eggs imo! I have pretty much succeded in breaking up w/ lululemon I don't find anything ever i like! Boring colors no new unique designs i have to have- nothing.... ever????

regarding the lab skirt: It looks like Lulu Lab might be riffing on some things that might be in style right now, for example this skirt on Gilt (you have to be registered with Gilt to see it):
http://www.gilt.com/sale/women/contemporary-january-sale/product/1031560021-twelfth-street-by-cynthia-vincent-faux-leather-mini-skirt

There is something fascinating about it to me - I'm kind of a sucker for street wear that uses techy fabrics - but i could never wear that cut.

It's going to be cool on a few people and a real don't on most, I imagine!

Ordered the Varsity Pants (in inkwell) for the same reason - looks like almost street wear in tech fabric - but I have a feeling I won't keep them.

Anyone get the lab tank? I ordered that too, and had to get an 8 but I am guessing a 6 would fit me better. I'd be interested to hear any reviews!

@ Tegan
Not sure where you are in California but the Lululemon in El Segundo had the peplum top in all colors this week. Initially they had it displayed in the front of the store but I saw a few days ago that they had moved it into a corner but I noticed that they still had many pieces.

Hi Tegan: I just saw some peplum tunics at my local store but didn't get a chance to see what sizes were left. What size are you looking for? Do you have a color preference? email me at brevoir13@gmail.com if you are still looking and I will be on the lookout!

Tegan said...

Thanks! I'm closer to Ventura County, but maybe I'll take a drive south. You guys are awesome!

Tegan said...

Thanks! Sent you an email. :) love this LLA community!

@Liquid (11:06PM): I just saw a pair of camo WUP in NYC-Union Square. Trust me, you are not missing anything. The fabric is slippery & extremely sheer (like a thick pair of pantyhose/tights, at best). I didn't even try them on because I was afraid they would snag/run! For camo fans, the print is too subtle. Personally, I am not really into camo and picked the pants up because I thought they were just a solid dark olive-brown that would go well with some of my "autumn colored" Lulu tops (eeek...showing my age w/the colos reference ;) I know many fellow addicts were excited for the return of camo, but the camo WUP are a huge fail.

Hi Anon 7:42pm - The wee stripe white/gray WUP did not seem AS sheer as the Zing pink WUC in the fitting room, but I find the lighting darker in there.(I tried both colors in a 6 and my measurements fall right between a 4 and 6 in LL pants - now I'm wishing I took a pic). The interior tag in the pink was CLEARLY visible when bending and in the wee stripe it was just slightly visible. I assume this is how it is with lighter colors - they will show any flaws. If you plan on using them for yoga, I would definitely do some down dogs in GOOD lighting PRE-studio to see how much is going to show. Hope that helps.

Well, as fugly as those Yin to Yang cardis are they do not hold a candle to the nightmare that is the US Olympic team's Ralph Lauren hideous nightmare of a uniform. That cardi looks like an ugly Cosby Christmas Sweater blazer. Have you guys seen it? Absolutely atrocious! If I had qualified for the team, I'd have to give up my spot to my runner up so I wouldn't be guilty of a crime against fashion humanity!

i tried on the lab pants yesterday. i thought the material was a bit scratchy and weird (i was expecting the same as the trouser pants). they had a bit of sheen to them as well, like some the the high poly content CRBs of late. they had a longer inseam than i was expecting as well. the fit was not for me, but that would be of any pants of the same shape.

i got the lab jacket in black (i have the uba in inkwell from last year). it fits more like the uba or a bomber rather than the nice asana or stride. i wish it had zippered pockets, but i like the style.

I found the wee stripe to be to sheer and too shiny in my TTS. Loved the pattern, but I think we are tempted to make excuses/rationalizations that it's not "that sheer" because they are just so cute. But I would feel like a sucker paying $72 for fabric that might get a second or third look from someone behind me...

Agree anon at 2:13 PM. Today's Olympic Sweater, tomorrow's winner of the ugly sweater contest. They are hideous and emabarssing!

How do you ladies wash your white lulu? I have a no limits tank that is starting to look a little dingy. I just ordered some Charlies Laundry Soap so maybe that will help but if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thanks!

has anyone tried on the Core Kicker Tank? i am hoping it is cute on a real person and doesn't show terrible back fat. i really want a tank Baroque Blue and am afraid there isn't a CRB coming.

Anonymous said...

@stylista diva thanks so much for your response! Guess they are worth trying if they ever come to the US side :)

Jen said...

Has anyone seen any of the wee stripe/white vinyasa scarves lately? I'm really wanting one, but can't seem to find. :(. Anyone have one to sell ? Thanks!!

Anonymous said...

So stores have the wee white/grey stripe WUP? I was in Pittsburgh and they had knowledge of when they might get them or if they were getting them.

I got the Core Kicker tank in Black. Mostly because it's forgiving for those of us with breasts.

Do we think the US might be getting the wee white/grey stripe WUP and perhaps the black diamond WUP (High waist I believe). Anyone able to give any details?
Thanks!

Yeah seems like designers these days create "ugly" and try and market it to us as "IN" or "trendy" well not for this lady, PLease give me a f'ing break! they can keep their crap all day long i won't budge my wallet is zipped shut till something somewhere appeals to my fashion sense, and alot of you wonderfull ladies on here i know agree!!!

@ 10:37am I just received my Lab Tank and love the fit and feel of he soft merino wool, beautiful details at the neckline. I wear a 6 in CRB and got a 6 in this too. This piece will be worn so many different way other than working out! I'm debating on the Lab Jacket since I've heard people love the details and fit but that's a chunk of $$$$ .

Jenny said...

Has anyone tried to wash their passage sweater? I hand washed it and laid flat to dry and it took FOREVER to dry. I also feel like it stretched out. Did anyone wash in the washing machine and/or put in the dryer?

I got the camo WUPs from a friend who bought them for me in New York. I love them and don't find them to be too sheer. They are TTS and yesterday I wore them with brightly colored panties which were not at all visible even while doing forward bends.

Does anyone know if they are going to get more camouflage?

Thanks for the pics LLA :) I just wanted to throw out a question to anyone who may have one or know where I can get one...I'm talking about the Post Practice Cardi size 4 in silver spoon. I thought the sweater looked hideous in the pics but I saw it on a client today and I want one so bad now!!! I assume all stores are sold out but I guess you never know. Ebay is soooo expensive. If someone knows of any Ontario stores let me know! email: elisa_vincent@hotmail.com Or if anyone would angel one I can pay through Paypal invoice with shipping fees and I don't mind paying a little more...just not $300 :( It was my fault I made the pass on it and now I can't stop thinking about it!! Thanks everyone.
