Britt's Picks

Hmm, Run for Fun crops are back. I poo-poo'd them because they didn't have a back zipper pocket, which is a must-have for me in run crops. I wonder if this got fixed.

I like Skinny Wills a lot. Last year I got them in Pique and Herringbone luon.

I know a lot of people love the Tuck and Flow but it's too billowy for me. I am not a fan of the mesh tee.

Editing miss by Lululemon.... Those shorts on the right are labelled Noir Bra + Noir Pant!

Yay Skinny Wiils!! I have 3 black pairs, one blue and soot crops. I wear them every day and will likely get another pair.

I picked up a pair of run for fun crops last week in my SSP store. These are super comfy and look really good on my curvy figure. They have a full luxtreme back panel. I would say they fit the best for me of all the run crops I've tried on. Still no back pocket.

What duds.

The pineapple CRB - right, because women always want to wear a kid's shirt.

OK HI T - even on cute ladies this is just a bad look.

Mesh collection - ick, ick, ick (and I'm super fit, could pull it off).

Tuck and flow - why would I wear a maternity shirt if I'm not pregnant?

Yay! BB Tuck & Flow!

Is the tuck and flow a tts or a size down item?

I agree on the tuck and flow. I know a lot of people love it but it is a terribly unflattering cut. It is cut like a maternity top with a horrible curved hem. Any extra weight in the middle looks even worse. Even the models look 15 pounds heavier in that thing.

Not everyone thinks that non-skin-tight clothes are only for pregnant people. I am also "fit" but don't always want to be prancing around in skin tight shirts. It's just not always appropriate and can invite unwanted attention. Just saying.

My local store got WU crops with wee stripe waistband already, they are made in Canada

Does anyone know if the tuck and flow fits tts? I am definitely going to order it and need to know whether to size down or not. Thanks!

I love my tuck and flow. I pair it with my skinny wills and it provides just the right amount of coverage. I can also wear it to/from the gym.

I found it a little snug in the upper arms/shoulders in my tts 4 but feel if I sized up to a 6 it may be too loose. I only wish I had gotten it in plum last year.

And I totally agree with anon 11:17am - I too am fit and can wear my skinny wills without a long top but I choose not to do so. I don't need or want that kind of attention if I'm out to dinner or running errands. To each his own.

I wonder if they tweaked the fit on the Run for Fun crops. I have them from 2012, and I know that last year's version was cut similar to 2012- very narrow through the waist, and small in the calf.
I am a small size 4 (could prob squeeze into a 2), and I had to wear a 6 in this crop. Love the side pockets, though!

Agree with anon@11:17am. I'm also "fit" but I don't feel the need to wear tight outfits all the time. It's pretty clear I'm NOT pregnant even when I'm wearing "maternity" (i.e. non skin tight) tops.

@ 11:17 AM, you have some werid notions for sure. Hilarious that you misconstrue someone commenting on a loose/mat top as someone who wears "skin tight" clothing and goes "prancing around" no less! Please. I'm very fit and all of my clothing is fitted, which does not mean skin tight at all. It is properly sized, is figure flattering and looks classy. And that doesn't mean I prance around. Ever. Unless I'm pregnant, I'm not going to wear a maternity top, even though I could get away with it and still look cute and classy.

I'm pregnant. Only 12 weeks, but I could get down with the Tuck and Flow. This may be great down the road. Has anyone found certain items work well with pregnancy?

Jess said...

The shorts that are mislabeled- are those Tracker II or Run Times? Any guesses? I'm so bummed that I missed my chance at the dot trackers! I would welcome a Wee are from Space tracker though :) Make up for the sting of a missed item!

I love the tuck and flow, we got them in NZ about 6 weeks ago. They run slightly big. I'm usually a 10/12 but got a 10 in this and could've worn an 8 in the body if the sleeves weren't so tight.

Several have commented that the higher waisted wu's work better for pregnancy.

Yes, Lulu, in the middle of summer with a very boring color palette released so far what we want is yet ANOTHER pair of black speed shorts. Countertop and apron looking speeds don't count either. Yet another pair of boring speeds (the granite/marble looking new print from HK) will be coming as well. Seriously Lulu - COLOR.

*rolling eyes, said with a LOT of sarcasm*

Seriously so much boring this season.

Anon @1:22, CRBs and Astro waistband bottoms are awesome for pregnancy and postpartum. I didn't gain a ton of weight in either of my pregnancies so I just stuck with my regular size. Congrats to you and I hope you find some pieces you love and feel great in!

Melissa Saka said...

Yes! I'm 10 weeks and although I purchased a few size-up gratitude wraps (static & mudd) in anticipation of getting pregnant someday, I could def use other suggestions!

Skinny Wills are my favorite pants under the moon and sun and I will definitely be adding to my collection!
And of my Wills: I own two sizes of many of the pants -- A looser fit for when I'm mom-ing around and a prancing-around pair. I say prance around if you have the mind to do do -- 'unwanted attention' be damned! (Lululemon is functional and all, but I find it a little hard not to prance when I'm wearing it. Maybe it's just me, but I doubt it!)

I agree, I really wanted it to work for me when it came in plum last fall. I tried it on tts, size up, size down....none of them worked for me. I think if you have a larger bust, those kinds of tops don't always hang nicely.

Anonymous said...

I personally don't like the look of the tuck and flow for my body type.
I am fit, but petite and busty, I find that tops like that are unflattering on me. for working out I can't handle a lot of extra fabric.

Did Andie from Pretty in Pink get hired at the lab? Those mesh pieces look like they were designed by her.
