Secret Garden Full On Luxtreme Inspire Crops - First Wear Performance Report

I de-tagged my Secret Garden Inspire crops for a four mile run today. Temps were in the mid-70s and sunny so not an overly cool run day.  I was very pleasantly surprised how cool I felt in these crops considering they're made of full on luxtreme (formerly known as iPlux) so are on the thick side and are all luxtreme with no mesh panels. I think these wick sweat away better than power luxtreme because I know I tend to feel hot in my Parallel Stripe Runday crops. I was also a little worried that they would slip down as I ran since they seemed to be doing that around the house. However, I adjusted the material on my legs and tied the waist tie and they stayed in place nicely. I wore them with a Circle Mesh SE Cool Racerback. I hope lululemon is moving towards making all their run crops out of full on luxtreme. The material is thick, has good coverage, great support, is nicely opaque, and great wicking ability. I had read that print luxtreme crops from now on will be full on luxtreme so I am hoping the solids will also go full on luxtreme.

LLA I don't know why you say that your legs are big. They look strong yet feminine. Those inspires look great on you.

They look so cute on you! Glad to hear they perform well, too. I'm really far from a store but... do you think they're still in stores? Maybe I'll go on a little trip!

I did the same today... off went the tags and out I went.

Found SG Inspires just as LLA said in every way.

Honestly, by themselves (with black or grey) I think they look great. Won't wear them everyday, but as often as I do all my other bazillion lulu bottoms.

They look fabulous on you!! Girl - now I want a pair and probably can't get them. I too hope they make all luxtreme bottoms out of this thicker full on material - it totally rocks.
