Any hints or inside info that the healthy heart PO could be offered in any another colors? I love the cooc pique, but have already bought 3 items in this, would really love a healthy heart in one of this fall's purples :)
Does anyone know why ebb to street tanks are so hard to find? None of the stores near me carry it, only the ebb and flow. And online all the 4s are sold out.
Totally off topic, but Lulumum in Canada just posted a pic of the Coco Pique Wunder Under pant. I just left Lululemon at Santana Row, California and they didn't have it there. Has anyone in the U.S. seen it at their local stores, or is it only in stores in Canada? Hugs <3
Ordered my FTBW going grape/bumbleberry bra at 6:42 AM WEDNESDAY morning, received it today Thursday. Headache avoided.Still waiting on my next morning score from the warehouse sale. Frenzy free and low prices I have the Flaming tomato yama check pace setter skirt and my Static Alarming CRB matches it perfectly---So if you have any LLL items in Alarming I believe it's the same color as Flaming Tomato
I just tried on my new Green Teal Scuba for the first time since it arrived in the mail today and am so disappointed. The colour is absolutely gorgeous and this would be my favourite Scuba of all because it is so gorgeous and I love the inkwell and rose gold accents with the teal colour, except that it seems to be a lot smaller in the bust than all of my other scubas :( It is my usual size 4 and I checked the size on the hang tag, the rip out tag, and the little size dot inside the pocket and they all say size 4! I then set it on top of a couple of my other scubas to measure and it is the same everywhere except that it is at least an inch smaller in width in the body! I can't afford that extra inch difference in the chest (I wear a 32E in the TaTaTamer but normally need a smaller band size). I'm pretty sure if I try the next size up that it will be too long in the length of body and the arms as well as being baggier everywhere except for bust area and it just won't look good. I can zip it up but have to stretch and pull it a bit at the bust first, but then I feel squished into it across the bust and I can't keep it like this! I'm disappointed. I have heard of sizing inconsistency with Lululemon but have never experienced it - well now I know, and I guess I've been lucky so far! It certainly makes me wary of ordering online again and I've done my fair share of it! Has anyone else noticed this with the new Green Teal Scubas? I'm wondering if it's possible I got a weird one that's off in size? Another fit problem that I've had this week is with my new Bhakti Yoga Jacket :( I picked this up in store and actually did try in on first, but didn't take the time to really check it out as well as I should have, so didn't notice the problem until I tried it on again this week at home. It fits perfect everywhere in the size 4 except that I find the fit under the armpits and across the shoulders to be too big which is especially noticeable seen from the back. It bunches up excessive material across the shoulders across the back which then bunches up the back of neck too, and can be seen bunched up on top of shoulders from front, and it's really saggy under the armpits as well, so this jacket seems to be too big and/or a weird fit for me in those areas even though the fit is perfect everywhere else. Has anyone else noticed this with their Bhakti jacket? Maybe it's just me :( It's such a unique and flattering jacket so it's disappointing for me to have to return it. Anyway, I've been on quite a Lulu buying spree lately and these two fit problems have kind of put me off for a bit I think :(
@ anon 2:31 pm - I just a photo from a Connecticut store that had coco pique wunder under pants so it looks like they are also in the US.
@ anon 4:@3 pm - you might to try ordering another scuba in the same size and size up to see if you get a 4 with a different fit/try the 6. The bhakti has an odd fit imo. I think it can look nice but it takes too much arranging to make it look good. I didn't notice a problem with the back but I know it does odd things around my armpits. What color did you order?
I picked up the FTBW bra in store today (Toronto, Eaton Centre), in Going Grape/Bumble Berry. They had a few left in sizes 2,4,8,10 (do not know if they had more in back). They had the other new versions too in most sizes. They did not have the Refresher Racer in triplet twin stripe toothpaste heathered slate as I was interested in buying it. The had the blossom stripe bumble berry ghost version though. As for...Long and the Short of It Jacket, not for me. At least it isn't too ugly when both parts are together. Torque Tank, no thanks.
I was in my local store in Omaha, NE and bought a pair of coco pique wunder under pants - they are beautiful. They also had the forrest green coco pique roll down wunder unders.
One of the stores in Chicago had the coco pique winder under pants today
@anon 4:23 I agree with you. I bought the gorgeous coco pique bhakti at my local store. After I got it home, I started to really notice the fit problems. One of the things that drew me to the jacket in the first place is the unique way it gathers around the neck, but it's almost like it has too much extra fabric so it doesn't lay flat on the top of the shoulders away from the neck area. Instead it bulges up off my shoulders and upper back as if I bought the wrong size (I bought my usual LL size). Also, the bottom layer front panel consistently rolls up and under itself, creating a bulge in the stomach area. It also has a snag on the seam in front near the zipper. (I've noticed this seaming issue with several recent lulu purchases - fresh out of the bag and there are frayed or snagged seams!)The other issue is that it’s hard to layer anything but short sleeves or tanks underneath it because the sleeves are very tight and long. I was hoping to be able to use it as a fall layering piece to wear around town in addition to the gym. As much as I loved it initially, with all of these discovered fit problems I haven't taken the tags off. I'll be taking mine back, as well. I'm bummed because it really is a beautiful jacket. I think my local educators are starting to hate seeing me walk through the doors, I’ve had to make a lot of returns in the last few months. :(
@4:23 I was just in my local Lulu and tried the Coco Pique Bhakti and had the same experience..large and unflattering around shoulders and back but didn't feel like I could size down (although my size down wasn't available to try)..Like you LLA I find this jacket can be very flattering but too much work..I'd almost never zip it if I ever buy one, LOLAlso as for the scubas very inconsistent in sizing lately, I literally have 8s, 10s and 12s depending on the pattern/color..I have brought this to many educators attention and I'm definitely not the only one.
So what's the record for how quickly an item has made it to WMTM? Departure top was recently booted there (at drastically reduced price) and now the Cocoon car coat has made its debut!
I'm Anonymous 2:31pm. Thanks Lulu Addict and everybody for letting me know you saw the coco pique in your local US stores! Your FYI's warmed my Lulu loving heart. Blessings all!
Thank you for your replies LuluAddict, Anon @ 7:44 PM, and lulu - I appreciate it, as I was pretty bummed about the fit problems I was having. LuluAddict, I'm going to try another Scuba in size 4 as well as the next size up to see how they fit when I return the one I have to the store (my fingers are crossed that they'll have both sizes in the Green Teal!). I actually measured the difference in size with a few of my other scubas (all size 4) on top, and the Green Teal Scuba is a full inch and a bit smaller on each side, so between at least 2 if not 3 inches total difference in width! I'd say that's a full size down in the width of body, but they are all the exact same size in the arms and in the length of body! If anyone else here can't resist a gorgeous teal green and a Scuba hoodie, I'd definitely recommend the Green Teal Scuba (it's really gorgeous!) but make sure to be careful with sizing in case they're all off in that colour.As for the Bhakti jacket, I agree that it does seem to take too much arranging (or fussing with!) to look just right. Mine (I have the black one that is sadly going to have to be returned) isn't too bad in the back as long as I'm sure to pull the jacket down nice and snug especially over my shoulders, but then it's just extra baggy in the armpits and the arms seem too long, and as soon as I move my arms it all bunches up again! Anon @ 7:44 PM, and lulu - I feel better to hear it's not just me, but it's a bummer we're having these fit problems with it as it is such a beautiful jacket.The sizing inconsistency seems to be a huge problem, and very frustrating. I read a comment on here not too long ago that the Scubas may end up being online only (but not sure if this is actually going to happen) but knowing how the sizing is so inconsistent I'm feeling a bit hesitant to purchase online and would prefer to try on in store, so definitely hoping this won't happen.
@2:31- I bought a pair of coco pique WUP at Santana Row this Friday.They also gave me the $6 refunds for FTBW. :)
read that the long & short of it jacket can be worn as a backpack. really tickled me. lol
@ anon 12:19 am - Seriously? You are joking right? WTH.
