Try On Reports: Denim Wunder Under Pant, Stash It Tank, Free Fall Crops, Miss Misty Pullover

Heathered Light Gray Forme Jacket, Sashico Star Inkwell/Rugged Blue Flow Y bra, and Sashico Cross Inkwell/Rugged Blue Roll Down Wunder Under crop.

The new denim Roll Down Wunder Under Pants. I tried these on today. I liked them but probably could use a size up in them so they are more deep blue and less whitish in spots (see middle photo where the color comes across more "faded". The material has a bit of sheen to it and seems to highlight bumps - note the deeper blue area on the side of her left hip and calf in the first photo (not that these are "bad" bumps to highlight, just wanted you to note the material does create shadows). I thought the material was very stretchy and nicely lightweight, though I find denim luon to be warm for inside workouts.

I tried on the new Practice Cotton Free Fall crops and liked how soft and cozy they were. The leg opening is snugger than in the older light luon version. I would say these fit TTS but the practice cotton doesn't have as much give as the older version.

I tried on the What the Sport Short in the heathered black and really liked them. The heathered black luxtreme is very pretty color and I hope we'll see more items in it. I thought they fit TTS.

Wrappers Delight Tank and Speed Short.

I tried on the Stash It tank today and was surprised how much I liked it because it hadn't won me over in the photos. It's super lightweight and cool and would be great for sweaty workouts.  The website and hang tag text doesn't say it but I believe the outer layer is silverescent circle mesh, which is my most favorite lightweight fabric from lululemon. They haven't made it in awhile so I'm glad to see it back. The split side design is handy if you are a bit of a pear shape and tend to size down in your tank for the built in bra to fit but then find the hip area too snug. Conversely, if you have to size up for the bra to fit but then the rest of the tank hangs on you, you can always tie loose ends at the bottom. The only thing I don't like about the tank is the rather inelegant design of the back:

However, this tank is very functional and comfortable so I think, in this case, function wins out over fashion. I'm about to leave for Sea Wheeze so decided against getting this tank at this point but I'm probably going to break down and get one. I keep thinking about it so that is a sign I really like it. I thought the fit was TTS. 

I've been reading a lot of raves over the Miss Misty Pullover but I was disappointed to find the shoulders rather tight in this top, particularly since it's a run top. I tried it on straight over my sports bra so the material felt sticky and hot to me. It's probably fine with a tank or long sleeve underneath, though it seems like a heat-trapper to me. The underside of the arms are made of perforated material but I think this jacket could use a mesh armpit. If you are planning on running in this I'd definitely try the size up to get shoulder and back/upper chest room.

The what the sport short looks interesting, but in hate that there isn't the sticky silicone at the hem. I have the shorty shorts from a couple years ago and the hem is prob the only thing that keeps them from riding up. These news shorts look a bit longer but still short enough to ride up. Maybe I'll try on in store and be won over.

What top (or bra? is under the Forme jacket in the first picture? Love the sashico star print. So hoping we get some tops and not just bras in this pattern.

@ anon 3:57 pm - I think it's the Flow Y bra. The Energy bra has the cross print. The 50 Rep bra also has the sashico star print but that is an on line only item so it has to be the Flow Y.
