Thanks for the close up of the vintage pink wafs - I so want a CRB!!
I'm dying for the cotton wunder unders but the size 2's seem to be sold out everywhere :(
How much is scarf?
I love the concept of the vintage pink wafs, however I think it has too much yellow in it and is simply not flattering against skin color. It's not a very wearable color combination imho.A shame as I would LOVE an awesome wafs power Y.
My fold down diamond WUs were awesome for the first few hours but they stretch so much. I'd buy 2 sizes down (from a 10 to a 6) if I could return.
Has anyone seen the ombre live natural cotton crops in stores? Any fit reviews from those lucky enough to snag a pair? Any intel that they may reappear? TIA! I'm obsessed, probably bc they're so elusive (or, I'm crazy...)
Light grey cotton wunder unders = Immediate crotch sweat highlighter.
Anyone know if the Diamond wonder unders will come out in a crop version? Also - has anyone in the US seen the cotton ombre capris in store yet?
OT: I received the Chakra Scuba Hoodie II in Heathered Light Grey and I really enjoy the new fit with the longer length and side panels. I might keep it despite the grammar errors since they're on the inside of the hoodie and I didn't buy it for the script anyway.
I just got my Live Natural Crops and I <3 them! They are super thick, true to size and can't wait to wear them. (I compared them next to a pair of WU crops.) It may be a while since I am just over 9 months pregnant. So glad I got them!
I was excited about the scarf but in store it wasn't as soft as I imagined. I was hoping it would feel like my Chai Time but it was a much looser weave and didn't feel as cozy soft.I bought the cadet blue forme - my first forme and it's lovely. Cadet blue is a beautiful color - goes with everything else I like - neutrals, black, white, raspberry, plum, dz, alberta lake, parfait pink, soot, etc. The forme fits me TTS and seems to be very well made with lots of attention to detail.I also got the diamond dot WU roll down and was very impressed. I have many WUs of regular rise that I wear on an almost-daily basis, but the roll down is really special. I like the diamond dot because it looks like dark grey from far away but it has some interest up close. It seems to run a little bigger than normal, but with that print I think it's best that it's not stretched since the pattern would get warped. I hope they keep the roll downs around for a while, but just in case they dont I also went ahead and got the black - so so soft! Almost got the grey practice cotton ones, but they were just too light for me to be comfortable walking around in them. If the practice cotton comes out in a darker color, I'll probably get those too. It's just the perfect cut for leggings!
don't like the scarves, I saw them at my local Lulu and they seem cheap and will definitely snag.The bali green wonder unders on the other hand are so nice hope they have them in the US soon.M
Scarf is $68.00 and beautiful!!
Hemming and hawing... Just got my bali breeze roll down WUCs and I love them. They feel great and fit great but they are kinda sheer. The sheerness I can live with.. I have nude undies... But in some lighting my cellulite shows and in other light everything looks fantastic. Doesn't matter the brightness, just the angles/type of lighting.The other thing is, I'm 7 months pregnant and the cellulite has mainly just become a problem in the last few months. Should I return the crops or hold on to them in hope?So embarrassing... Any advice appreciated!
QUESTION ABOUT CADET BLUE FORME: I just received my Cadet Blue Forme today. First, let me say that the color is beautiful -- a greyish-purplish navy; however, this Forme doesn't fit me as well as it seems to be fitting others. In fact, when I put it on, I thought Lulu had sent the wrong size. My jacket is a full inch longer and a more than an inch wider at the hips than ANY of my previous Formes (original or with cuffins) or Defines. Because I am tad under 5'3',I noticed the longer length immediately. However, I don't think the longer version would have bothered me quite so much, had the jacket not belled out at the hips. My various Formes (and Defines for that matter) have subtle differences in length and width, but all have a snug and flattering fit -- though admittedly I found the shoulder in the original Forme to be too pointy & arms too big. I may try the Cadet in a size 2, but worry the waist or chest may pull. Has any one else found the Cadet Forme to fit differently? If so, did you size down? I would be SO appreciative of advice or comments. TIA!!!
Just gotta say I don't understand the love for the Vintage Pink WAFS! I saw the WU crops in store this week and the color was just awful. It looked like puke. Even two of the educators agreed with me and usually they try to sell me on everything! I'm not sure what others are seeing. There have been other colors/prints released that i didnt like, but this one is the worst! Sorry, but I just had to throw my 2 cents in....
If anyone finds the ombre live natural crops in store I could sure use an angel. Size 4. Email Sarah at email@example.com. Tia!
OT but I am feeling nostalgic about old school LULU.Just did a workout in my old diamond gusset soft yet opaque WUC and they are like 4 years old and still holding up. they are soft and still hold their shape and I don't have to constantly tug at them like the IPLUX ones. Sad, yes very sadM
to anonymous 12.49.... maybe u do have the wrong size forme. One time I got a swiftly half zip in a 6 and it was most definitely a 4. lulu changed it for me no worries. if u kno yr lulu question it.
Is anyone able to comment on the fit of the hotty hot short vs. speed short? I'm a 6 in speeds. I got a 6 in hotty hot...just wondering if a 4 wld be better.I love the hotty hot short. Got the cadet Blue. The camo was MIA from my cart Tues am when I woke up. Had internet issues Mon night when I put it in my cart.
I got my Base Runner LS in the mail yesterday. I got the black and white striped one off WMTM (that looks like a jailbird or French Mime shirt). It fits larger than my inkwell/surge stripe and black pique shirts. It's funny too how they are all made out of "Rulu", but they are all completely different fabrics! The pique is the thickest and warmest of the three, perfect for cold weather running, the black and white striped one is thinner fabric than the pique but thicker than the more silky inkwell/surge stripe. I love them all, and they are such a flattering cut (the back ruching and tiny ruffled details at the shoulder make them all so feminine). I only wish I had bought the parallel stripe on WMTM when it first came out. I dithered, and it was gone by morning! We all complain a lot about the quality of Lulu these days. I am so happy to be able to be excited about some stuff these days!
@anon 2:13... I don't understand it either. I've seen ladies in the vintage pink WAFS tops & bottoms & from far they almost look naked. I don't think that it is flattering on any skin tone unless you are very tanned - even then it is iffy, but everyone has different tastes. :)
Agreed! Returned mine from an online purchase today yuck!!
I ordered the hotty hot shorts in camo, diamond dot wunder unders, and power y in wafs vintage pink. I was expecting to keep the wunder unders and power y, but the hotty hot shorts, surprisingly, was the only item i really liked. I was really disappointed that i missed the diamond dot wunder under in another upload, but holy, these pants are sheer city. Just hold the material up at a light and you can see through it, without even stretching. Also the power y color does resemble vomit. can't dig it although the material feels nice.
Not related to this post, but just a heads-up to anyone considering the Cadet Blue speed shorts - they are mistakenly listed as 4-way stretch on the site, but are actually 2-way stretch. Got my order yesterday and was very disappointed. I'm ok with 2-way stretch, but I typically need to size up to fit my muscular thighs. The GEC was helpful in setting up a return so that I would not have to pay the shipping fee.
I returned my pace queen tights today. Just didn't feel like the seaming across the butt was flattering on me. I also exchanged my soot forme for the cadet blue which is beautiful! I'm excited because this is my very first forme! Love it and cannot wait to wear it!I also tried on the yin to my yang cardi and really liked it! It was marked down to $64 in my store but unfortunately they did not have the darker charcoal grey in my size so I did not get it. I might check another local store tomorrow to see if they have it. I can see this being a great piece to wear to a casual dinner or lunch or to wear in the spring when the weather warms up as a light jacket. It's bum covering so would look great with boots and leggings. It was so warm and cozy I didn't want to take it off!I also noticed a heathered medium gray CRB which maybe I'm late to the game on but haven't seen or heard about that before. It's a nice neutral color with very light flare stitching on the inside. I'm a huge pop orange fan and had not seen very light flare in person until today and my oh my it is bright!! Too bright for my taste. Will look great on darker or olive skin tones.
I wore the Live Natural crop in Ombré to yoga and had to constantly pull them up! Very low cut in the waistband both front and back. Can we say Plumber Bum?? Anyone else have the same fit issue?
OT got my Traveling Yogini camo backpack yesterday - my DH got it for me as a replacement for a bag he gave me years ago that i returned... anyway, i think i love it (based on one use)! i cut the tags off faster than i ever do with anything, especially bags (maybe because i didn't pay for it?), threw my stuff for hot yoga in there, and ran out the door. fits a ton of stuff. the "mat garage" might be a little iffy, but i did use it and it worked pretty well. the bag is big, but just fits in the square cubbies in my studio. there is a shoe bag in there that i hadn't even noticed in the description. i got camo even though it's trendy - this is really subtle and a nice dark olive green, with the awesome plaid lining. i'm psyched to use it for class/gym (i teach college) and for hot yoga. i always carry too many bags and am hoping this will allow me to consolidate a bit. one small design flaw: the phone pocket is a little small - i have to work too hard to fit my iPhone 5 with a low-profile cover in that pocket. there is a small pocket inside one of the mesh water bottle pockets - that fits the phone well and makes it easy to grab, but it's probably not the safest place. haven't tried it with a computer in it, so this is just an early review.
