Why do the Yoga Over Skirts (or whatever it is called - sorry! terrible with names) viewed in these photos look almost navy in color? Just trick of the eye/photo? Or are there navy skirts lurking out there somewhere? Just picked up the (basic) black and not certain will keep it. Am middle aged and not fit (but not overweight, just "pokey" in places) and trying to get away from all the black of my youth so not certain will wear it. But navy? That I would snap up. If anyone has any info, would appreciate it - thanks!
OT: Do you ladies have any recommendations for ipod/iphone arm bands for running/walking? I started running again about a month ago after many, many years away from the sport and really need something to hold my iPhone 5 secure so I can listen to music while jogging. Sorry to be so OT! So much great advice is passed around on this blog that I thought I'd ask as I know LLA & my fellow readers know what they're talking about when it comes to this stuff! Thanks so much in advance!
Does anyone know what size pants from ivivva would fit me if I take pretty much everything in size 2 from lulu. Thanks.
I noticed pineapple crops in my local store (US) last week. They're black with teal pineapples down the sides. Not sure why Lulu's going with that theme...
Wow, overall, such a subdued summer range. I don't go for bright colors generally, but still love the occasional fun splash of color here and there, and other than the jewel magenta, it's really missing from the current collection. I guess the more neutral shades are practical, and works for off-summer too. Is LLM playing it safe? I'm going to get a few mojave pieces, which means if the upcoming fall collections are not fabulous, I'm going to pass.

The pineapple is out of proportion. (Hawaii commenter here) Instead of a pineapple I see a doll. There's a face with a headdress.See it? Two almond/diamond shaped eyes and a heart shaped mouth and the fruit is the body.
That's what I see as well. It's just weird looking to me. No thank you.
@2:54. I bought a running belt at tjmaxx for about 10 bucks for my iphone It's a neoprene stretchy belt that is pretty flat and has an earphone slot. Phone sits sideways. Only problem is it's hard to mess around with playlist.
To anon 3:33pm, I use Lulu sz 2 and I got the Ivivva rithmic pants in a 12. They fit perfect and I think even a 10 could have worked for me! Hope it helps!
Anon @ 3.33I wear Ivivva tops in size 14 and am a size 4 Lulu. I don't wear their pants because I find the rises are just that little bit lower than I like. If you're a size 2 Lulu and you want the rise to be about the same as WU's then I'd go with a 12, if you don't mind a lower rise then I'd go with a 10
flipbelt.com or spibelt.comI personally hate armbands. any of the LLL shorts/crops/pants with the side, thigh pockets are AMAZING for running. phone stays put.
@Anonymous 10:05PM, I had also noticed the pineapple was out of proportion and wondered why, but I didn't notice the face until reading your comment. Now I can't unsee the face! Is Lululemon referring to it as a pineapple, or is that just a name the blog community has given it?
I used to run with an armband and it's a pain in the butt. Now I run with an iPod shuffle and would never go back. It's actually more practical if not also nearly the same cost as a good armband. I put my phone in a SPIbelt if I need to take it with me. That baby does not move around my waist! You could use the waist one but they also have an armband. http://www.spibelt.com
Off topic but does anyone have the Run Ta Ta Topper in Sheer Lemon? I have it in Aquamarine and love it. It's now on WMTM but from the pictures, the Sheer Lemon looks much more see through in the body fabric than the Aquamarine. I'd love to have another one of these in my closet, especially at mark down price, but not if it is more sheer than the Aquamarine (which in my opinion is hardly sheer at all).

My daughter is 5'4 1/2", 100#, ample bottom, but lean witn no fat and I find the ivivva 12 is too tight in their shorts/pants for her. Definitely needs the elusive 14 in those. She fits nicely into lulu 2's. Shirts still wears a 12 ivivva/2 lulu. I would not advise a 10 in any of their stuff if you're a true 2. It's definitely cut with a girl's body in mind.
cannot say that the in the flow crop color is my favorite... a little too revealing and worse when wet.
luluaddict, what is the new upload time? is it true that it has moved to tuesday?
@LLA - I know you previously posted a fit review of the Up Your Pace Crops, and I agree with you, I love them. However, did you find that the Flowabunga print was not as compressive as the solid black (Bleached Coral)? I purchased both pair and am trying to decided which to keep. I like the flowabunga print better, but can't get past the better fit/feel that I get with the solid black/bleached coral. The flowabunga seemed more shiny and thin to me. Did anyone else try both and have this same opinion?
11:32 I run with the ipod suffle as well and it fits in the small pockets of my lulu running tops and bottoms.I don't run with my iphone, in my opinion it is too bulky and distracting.M
Upload changed ;(
@ anon 12:07 pm - the hey lululemon site reported the new upload day will be on Tuesdays but at the same 4:15 pm Pacific time.
@ anon 12:11 pm - I can't recall the black feeling a ton more compressive than the Flowabunga but they may have. Prints and colors often have a different feel than black and my climate is hot so thinner feeling crops work for me. Did you check the size dot to make sure it matched the hang tag to see you bought the size you think you did? I tried on a pair of Dart and Dash shorts recently that had a size 10 hang tag but a size 8 size dot.
I buy ivvia pants all the time! They end up being a lower-waisted, but they work! I get a 10 usually.
