Dune Studio Jacket, Wamo Camo, Pineapple Print, and More

A rare photo of the Dune Studio Jacket.




The White/Dune Groovy Stripe No Limit Tank and Soot Light Wunder Under crops.

Heathered Medium Gray Roll Down Wunder Under Crop, Peace of Mind Tank, and Hot Spell Bra.


Interesting photo of the Burlap print Wunder Under crops here, they look really blotchy. Also shown is the Peace of Mind Tank, Hot Spell bra, and Go Lightly bag.



Peace of Mind Tank, Hot Spell bra, and Pineapple print Wunder Under Pant.




Blue Tropics Spray Dye Tracker II shorts and Bleached Coral Swiftly tank. Shown with the Go Lightly and Flow to Om Bags.



The wamo camo print on a curvier person. I know there was some discussion in the comments about wamo camo not looking good on size 10/12 but my personal opinion (as a size 10/12) is that I'm not going to fool someone into thinking I have a size six rear by sticking to black bottoms so might as well own it and wear attention-grabbing prints and colors. These are gym clothes, not street clothes, so might as well have fun while you're sweating your ass off.

Love your wamo camo comment! Spot on!

I don't know if I'll keep the wamo camo crops I ordered - I find the denim luon hot for the gym - but I do LOVE the Secret Garden Inspires I bought and they're about as attention-grabbing as you can get. My #2 favorite are my Parallel Stripe Runday crops. For some reason, it seems more ok to me to wear loud run clothes than gym clothes but I'm seeing a lot more crazy bottoms at my gym lately. Nike and UA have a lot of fun prints out.

One of the boys on my son's high school Track team is the state record holder for a few of the longer distances and he loves crazy run shorts. He had his cheetah print ones on yesterday.

LLA, ITA with your comment on the wamo camo print. I'm pear shaped and don't wear my WUC as street wear. I might as well have fun working out!

Anyone have any comments on the wamo camo go lightly bag? Are you lovin it? I ordered it and havent gotten it yet, but am trying to justify keeping it when I have so many bags already! Is the print as nice as on the CR? Grabbed that in store the other day. Thanks ladies.

I bought the Dune jacket even though I don't really need it. It's just such a nice, neutral colour (that is a little more practical than white).

Love your comment. My theory is life is too short to only wear black bottoms!

Love the wamo camo on the curves! Wërk it!!!!

I say go for it! For the longest time I just wore black work out clothes and now I am so over it. When I'm working out I love looking down and seeing fun prints and bright colors it gives me a little extra motivation. Have you ever seen Tracy Anderson's crops? She rocks some wild prints. I helps me not take myself too seriously... working out isn't always fun and sometimes what get's me motivated is thinking about putting on a pair of printed crops and going for a jog..."let's see how many stares I am going to get!" haha

I love my parallel stripe run days & sg inspires, too! I also have the petit fleur inspires, and I think they're flattering.

Love the shots from the Bethesda store - the "love" art is a beautiful way to honor her.

Agree completely, LLA. I volunteered at a marathon on Sunday, and there were lots of wacky Lulu outfits that I wouldn't have worn (secret garden speeds paired with neon pink and green top!). But you know what--if you feel comfortable in your clothes & they give you the confidence to run a marathon or complete whatever your workout is, then that is the outfit you should wear!

OT: My philosophy is that if something I really like on upload is available the day after, it was meant to be. :-) I couldn't stand the temptation any longer and just ordered the Flow to Om bag in black, the Ultraviolet CRB, and the DSJ in Earl Grey (hope it fits since I've never tried it on...I sized up). Expensive haul for me, but I can't wait to get everything!

Jill Erwich said...

very well stated luluaddict!! i think the wamo camo looks great on the women in the picture. i mean they are just clothes so if they make you happy and maybe make you move quicker during a wod or run a little faster, then why not.

This is why I love ya! Signed, a fellow size 10/12 wearing print bottoms as we speak.

I LOVE loud bottoms for working out. I ran a 5k over the weekend, and the winner was a guy who had on crazy loudly printed run shorts (couldn't tell you the print since I didn't have my glasses on). And yesterday, my hubby and I both had on very very loud, plaid gym shorts (different plaids so I'm sure we gave someone a headache looking at us). Generally, he wears very muted colors so I kept giggling at how loud our shorts were.

As a person who actually is curvy -- I have a 38" hip, a 28" waist, a 39" bust -- could you stop calling people that are heavier or larger or "curvy." It's annoying. Curvy means that you have a larger hip to waist ratio or a larger waist to bust ratio or both. It doesn't mean that you are a size 12.

Otherwise, yeah, great point about wearing clothing that you love and silliness of "disguising" what you look like or what size you are.

Does anyone know where I can get the wamo camo wunder under crops? They were completely sold out when I got online and they didn't get them in my store. I am so frustrated there are people on ebay that somehow bought 40+ pairs and are selling them for almost 3 times the price!

Jiji said...

I went back to place an order for the vinyasa scarf in bleached coral and now it's no longer in stock. Since I heard it's thinner fabric, I am more inclined to get it. Oh well...

LLA thanks for making the above comment, I am petite woman but I think women should all rock what they have and be proud.

Nothing wrong with thighs and bootie.

I think your comment is spot on. I can't help but wonder..or wunder that we all shouldn't be putting our money towards a company who embraces women of all sizes rather than the Chip Wilsons of the world. The money still flows to him and the brand was created and exists in a very sizist universe. I'm a smaller person but am insulted when a CEO tells me my thighs can be too big or is stretching the material out. There is nothing wrong with ANY of our bodies when we are striving to be as fit as we can be in our bodies. I buy my lulu a bit more sparingly now and with a heavy heart for sure.

Well, I'm not a 10/12 but I think these girls look awesome in whamo camo. Probably bc they look confident.

Anonymous said...

Find it strange that when the first pictures of the wamo camo came out last week the girls in the photo were on the thin side and everyone said "moooo pink cows" and now a heavier girl has them on and she's "rocking them". Funny How opinions change one week to the next.

What's up with LLL continuing to charge the same price for items with significantly less material? First the crop CRB, now the one layer Vinyasa. This is a very pretty Vinyasa and it's nice that it's a lighter weight for the coming spring and summer months. But it is pretty much half the fabric of other Vinyasas which have two different fabrics so why is it still $48?

@anon 12:37 thank you for pointing that out..I hadn't noticed but I really like that too.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 2:47 pm - for all Chip's blaming of women with larger thighs for pilling, when he was CEO lululemon used to carry up to size 14 in quite a few styles. Under Day's leadership the 14s were discontinued so don't hate on Wilson too hard for being a size-ist.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 1:13 pm - The people who pose in these photos do us a very great favor by letting us see what the clothes look like on different sizes, shapes, coloring, ages, etc. and I try to be considerate of them. Does it really take anything away from you, a person with enviable dimensions, that I use 'curvy' to describe the woman in that photo?

Anonymous said...

@amandasimmons...my dear, you've arrived too late to the party.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 4:05 pm - I definitely thought 'cow' and 'moo' too, when I first saw this print in photos but when you see the print in person and you can see the detail of it it comes up more like stripes, almost, than cow-like blotches. It looks like crazy graffiti in person.

i saw the tanks at my store today and they were that slick poly material..... i don't like that big NO for me too bad all the really cool prints lately have been on the same kind of icky material!!! at least the crops are the denim fabric.... although i missed all the cool prints lately wish i'd got the beachscape and now i'm regretting missing this pink camo wuc. but the crbs are slick and gross feeling to me.

Anonymous said...

Just got my Soot WUC "AMAZING" they are thick and made in CANADA ;) LUV LUV!!

Anonymous said...

Anon@4:10, my thought exactly! My Vinyasa came today, and I had read on here that it was thinner, but I was still surprised how flimsy it seemed. I thought about returning it for a minute, but it is super cute. The label says "Rulu light", and there is no polyester (I think it is 92% nylon and 8% lycra)

Aimee said...

Thank you! It's a small thing, I know, but it really bothers me when people use the word "curvy" in this way. I don't know when it became a euphemism, but it drives me crazy. I also have very pronounced curves, and wear a size 4/6.

Jane Doe said...

I thought the recent LLM prints were crazy, until I started seeing some really crazy prints from Brazilian labels and some others like Teeki and Onzie. Loud prints is definitely a trend, and a fun one at that! Great way to express your individual style while working out.

I don't feel wearing black or darker colors would make someone look slimmer by default. IMO, it's a play on colors AND proportions to highlight best body features. :)

I haven't seen any photos of them yet, but the Street to Studio crops are out in Blue Tropics. (The Dance Studio crops are available as well). I got mine in an Ontario store.

Hi.What size are you looking for?

Anonymous said...

I finally bought a pair of wamo camo wuc in size 4 and wore in front of my sis. Her first words were "pinky cow" as well. I'm 5'7 but often wear 2/4 in top and bottom LLL so "pink cow" definitely applies to both skinny/heavy women. Let's face it. This is NOT the most visually slimming print LLL has ever produced.

But I do wholeheartedly believe here exists a bias towards skinny people. The recent black haired model is exactly my bodytype and the backlash against her modelling fitness clothes were very unfair and I took it to heart. It brings back memories when I first started running in gym and people waiting for my treadmill would say I didn't need to run because I wasn't out of shape. WTH

Anonymous said...

People are stressing about wearing 10/12?!? Maybe in Lululemon's world are you "plus" sized. Hardly in the real world. I'd assume these wamo camo items are being used for workouts not just fashion. Let's not sweat the truly small stuff. Wear your prints proudly.

Anonymous said...

@ 1:13 PM, probably you just need to get used to the inference of "curvy" having changed. And I say that with no judgment against larger shapes - we are all created differently. If you're working out and taking care of yourself, it's all good.

There are a lot of things that have changed in modern times. I embrace technology as much as the next person. But I don't walk around with my face glued to my phone ignoring everyone around me. That's REALLY annoying (has nothing to do with anyone's size or shape) and probably will never change.

Anonymous said...

Hi, I'm the curvy person that posted yesterday, I'm pleased that people send you photos and that woman looks great in her tank. This has nothing to do with her. Honestly, she looks great, and I hope that you love your printed pants and wear them and that they make you happy.

As you correctly say, what matters is being healthy and exercising and going to work-out and feeling good. But, yeah, using the word curvy as a catch-all for women who aren't a tiny size is annoying to me. It doesn't diminish me or the body that I happen to have been born with, but the word does have meaning. And those of us who actually do have curvy body shapes fully struggle find athletic wear that fits properly too. Curvy actually is something that like larger sizes, Lululemon and most athletic wear companies don't actually accommodate.

So anyway, yeah, maybe you don't have a lot of curvy readers, and, I don't read your blog and comments as religiously as it seems a lot of your fan-base does, but, it seems like you talk about all sort of concerns that women have with athletic-wear here, fabrics, whether things are flattering, if they fit properly, if they are true to size, etc, all I'm saying is lumping curvy into larger is inaccurate. Women who are larger have difficulty finding athletic-wear and they have concerns about how they want things to fit, women who are curvy do too, we look for higher necks, things that come in bra sizes, the width and stretch of a waistband so their won't be gaping, etc. The two words aren't interchangeable.

I don't like wearing prints on the bottom , not because of my size (8) but because of my age (46)...if that makes sense ?? any ways I did buy and wear the camo crops and I got so many compliments on the that I have really changed my mind and will be buying more print bottoms, I love pink and I love camp so thats why I bought them and I am so glad I did!!!

anon 9:18, I agree w/ you i get that too while i'm not too thin imo; people always ask me how i stay thin etc. that i don't need to watch my diet and excersise, it weird to me...... I go to the gym work out eat well to be well and i don't want to be fat so i don't over eat end of story and i get tired of that bias so i just don't go into detail anymore or try to explain to anyone anymore. quite frankly its no ones business, i don't ask overwieght people why they are that way or be rude by looking at them strangly so why is it okay for them to do so w/ thin people? People all want to be accepted no matter what their size so bigger women should be aware of this w/ thin women too.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 7:37 am - Like anon 4:39 am says the word curvy has evolved a bit to become a euphemism for heavier women.

I hear where you are coming from regarding lululemon not making clothes for curvier women. I am pretty busty myself - 36DD (natural) - with a defined waist and a generous tush. I often do talk about tanks that work best for bustier women regarding support and coverage. I've met and spoken with the new head of fit for lululemon - she is moving to Vancouver from Southern California - and she is a bustier woman who is well aware the company could expand their size range in bras and tops for bustier women.

Apple shaped women are definitely not served by lululemon, or most other athletic wear companies for that matter. Lululemon is definitely geared more towards an hour glass shape or a slender athletic build.

I was going to stay out of the conversation of curvy vs large, but for crying out loud, it is possible to be both curvy and large and not just large. Yeesh! And it is possible to be curvy without being large. I can't believe people are getting all worked up over semantics! #FirstWorldProbs! My probably unwelcomed 2 cents, fwiw!

Thanks, LLA for providing awesome fit and product reviews. I check your site several times a day. It has saved me time and $ with all your hard work and the very helpful comments made by others. This is my favorite Lulu fan site! I appreciate you! :)

@ anon 9:37 am - thank you! I really value the community here. I really appreciate all the feedback everyone provides on fit and quality.

Just had to jump in here. Today I purchased my first pair of print bottoms EVER. (got the wunder under crop in camo whamo) I am five feet tall, 125 lbs, but very fit. I've been really turned off by almost all Lulu tops lately because being short (yes, short!) but busty, I spill out all over the place - and the proportions are just not working for me. (disappointing! I simply can't wear any of the NLT-type tanks, and am a reluctant CRB wearer because the bustling comes down so low on me.)

I've never had the confidence to buy a print bottom but finally said "why the hell not!" Can't wait to take them for a run.

Oh yeah - and I'm 51.

Cause ppl would get a beat down if they said something negative about a heavier or over weight person. Double standards obviously.
I don't think the print is flattering on anyone think or thick.

May I ask where you purchased your Dune DSJ? Thanks!

Paperstarz said...

Yes, Thank You Luluaddict. Cept for me, your blog is just costing me money, tons and tons of money. I look at the lulu site and think, ah it's not that nice...then I come here and see all the pics and reviews, back to the lulu site I go; goodbye $300. :)
They should be paying you commission.
