This bra is very nice. Feels good on. I wish it came in DD as the cup just wasn't deep enough for me in the D. Hopefully lulu will start making them in the DD and I would definitely buy them
These snakeskin tights are going on me. Someone commented that in her mid 30s she felt too old for them. I'm 42 and would rock these babies.
LLA what happened to the define jackets on the website? US side.
How weird. I can't imagine they sold out.
I love the print on the snakeskins it's just that weird pocket thing on the thigh that I don't like. I'm 43
When I looked at the site a couple days ago only two sizes were left in the Bordeaux define. All others were gone. I think they did sell out. I'm not really surprised. I know a lot of people prefer the Forme, but the Forme doesn't suit everyone's body shape. On me it always looked a little sloppy. Like how something from Old Navy would fit. I've seen the same thing at the store with customers trying it on. Some people just can't get the fit right. Meanwhile the Define fits me like a glove.
The reviews for the new define have been pretty bad. I hear the quality is sub par. Maybe they pulled them?
@ 11:03 AM, agree, am same age as you and could rock them. It's just a matter of one's comfort level/whatever you feel appropriate for self. I'm considering them. I'm not sure how much use I'd get out of them this time of year (already true winter where I am, they won't be warm for my outdoor runs; rest of the time I'm in hot yoga). My only thing is I might tire of the print. I think they are cool though. OT: I was looking at YogaSmoga and they have some nice new prints, a pique looking in the Run Jump Play. I still don't find their website all that smooth to navigate, just feels jumpy and too busy. Plus, why do they not have customer reviews?! I think that's an essential tool. Maybe they do have customer reviews and I missed it because it's so busy.
I'm a D cup and I tried the boob wire bra on and liked it but no pockets for cups which I would prefer . As for the sequin snake speeds I'm 49 and bought them.. I love them and plan to use them in spin class :)
Pretty sure defines sold out on US side. The BD was down to a size 2 by late Wed afternoon. I ordered the BD one and it is very nice, Quality was great actually. Like the other commenter, mine fits me like a glove in my usual size 6. I'm very happy to see them back. Lulu really should offer both Formes and Defines since there seems to be a significant amount of followers in both camps.
I noticed the here to there dress disappeared too. I'm wondering if these will be the markdowns for Thursday or black Friday. Unless they are going to offer brand new stock at reduced prices. I am thinking some of the old stock will reappear
Wow!!!! Just picked up 2 of the weekend long sleeves! It's been a while since I made a purchase at lulu.( except for a few 105 f singlets and the inky floral vinyasa)They are super thick soft and flattering! I got the PTYU (no idea what color code that is!) but it looks like a inkwell stripe one! And the MSBX..... Again no idea but it's like a micro stripe black color!!!! I think these will sell fast!
The luon is really thin and horrid with scratchy seams...it was such a bummer
I rarely buy lulu tights/capris WITHOUT the brilliant side pockets. great for holding phone, gels, snot rag, gloves, whatever. if you run, and you haven't tried any bottoms with side pockets, get it now!they're even great for the gym to hold phone, key, etc.
@ 4:42 PM, fully agree. And one of the things LLL is usually brilliant at over other brands is the placement and number of pockets. Even with their speed shorts (or whatever the original versions were called way back when) they were way ahead of the competition. Once I started wearing their shorts and found them so comfortable and practical, that was it. That's how they drew me in. That and CRBs.
Do you know by any chance if they just received those colors? I was at my store a couple of days ago and they only had them in grey. Would love to buy the white one
Re Lululover @12:35 p.m.....and the side pockets on tights/capris: I'm with you on this as well. I would buy a lot more of Lulu bottoms without that annoying pocket that, while in theory sounds useful, I have never used cuz it adds bulk along my leg. To each their own I suppose! I prefer a more streamlined look.
There is nothing theoretical about it, the pockets are practical and useful. LLL has been smart about design in that regard. If you're a serious runner who runs outside, especially for long distances, you get it. There's also a way to equip yourself without looking bulky.
That doesn't make any sense to make the bra only up to D. DD girls (myself included) need the support the most. Most of the bras that work for me are hideous. I would love a DD bra that is cute and functional. I would pay a lot for that.
i will never put my phone next to my leg or other parts..... causes cancer..... food for thought ladies!
yeah you may see a protrusion if something is in the side pocket but I can't imagine anyone would be like "gross, look at that nasty growth on the side of her thigh". probably more like "why aren't all pants equipped with awesome pockets like that?!"
Anon 4:00: it may sounds like a good idea for runners, but I'm not a runner, I do circuit training at the gym and I have my gym bag for all my stuff. I would prefer more streamlined look myself . I hope lulu will make WUP in snakeskin print
They just came in Friday! I would say they will have it this upload!
Lulu's pockets are the best thing about their run gear. I need a zip pocket for my phone and two front pockets at least for my gels. They even used to put a zip pocket in their run hats where I used to tuck ID, money, etc. I also prefer the zip pocket in the small of my back on the run pullovers. Though, I've started carrying a little pouch on my bib belt for my last few races.
I find putting stuff in rear pockets is awful for bouncing. I much prefer thigh or front pockets, like in a vest. I wish lulu would put zip frpockets on high waist things like rebel runners. the phone could go in there and bounce way less than in the back right above my bouncing, shaking bum :)
@lululover - I'm sure there will be other bottoms in the new Sequin Snakeskin, Arsenal Ambient Gray and other new prints. I would think Wunder Under Pants at a minimum plus I'm hoping for a run crop since tights are overkill for my climate.
zip *front pockets.
spibelts are the best for a waist gear belt.
i'm another who loves the side pockets on their speed tights. I've gotten to where i won't buy any tights or capris without pockets. i just find it's more convenient for my phone when i'm running--especially if my kids need to contact me. i don't wear the arm bands for the iPhone (i have enough weird tan lines from my running shorts/skirts, tanks, and knee bands. i bought the snakeskin tights yesterday. i couldn't decide if they were sheer or just my imagination. my daughter said they weren't. but most tops come lower on me anyway, so i'm hoping they'll be fine. i've run races behind ladies wearing sheer tights (not just lululemon) and i don't really need to know what color and pattern underwear they are wearing. so, i really don't want others to know that information about me either! ;) they didn't have my size in the tights, so i sized up. i'm hoping i can grab my actual size on the upload.
Yay you go girl, why not!! Who cares about age just gotta love your lulu that suits your style whatever the age :-)
Another runner who refuses to buy crops/tights WITHOUT the thigh pockets now! LOVE them! I run alone a lot so always run with my phone just in case there's an emergency and also I use the RoadID app so that my family has live tracking of where I'm running so I don't have to have a predetermined route. Running without my phone is not an option. I have run belts that are great but prefer to run without them.Between the thigh pockets and the Run Stuff Your Bra I have everything I need to run miles and miles and miles and I don't look bulky either! On a recent Lulu note - haven't bought anything for weeks. I have not liked a single solitary item they've come out with past the Rebel Runners in the Black Grape (my last purchase). Good for my bank account. The Aussie buyer has a much better eye than the N.A. buyer for sure. Our summer stuff was beyond boring but the Aussie capsule is amazing! Too bad we're stuck with sucky buyers who don't seem to know or care what their customers want.
Same here! Side pockets are essential. But I prefer not having a back zipper pocket so that I can wear them for crossfit, pilates etc as well (I hate zipper digging in during situps but run with my iphone). I loved the diagnal zipper solution on the back of the crops a few months ago! That doesn't bother me in other activities, I hope Lulu implements this solution on other pants and crops, perfect!!! But keep the side pocket option, yay!!!!
I am 50 and plan on getting the snake skin tights. I think the pattern is great for this time of year.I also love the pockets on the legs of the pants. Great for running.I don't use speed tights for working out at the gym because they are way too hot. I stick with shorts or crops, sometimes my pace setters.M
Just picked up the Snake Skin Speeds and they are awesome!! The print is different enough to stand out, but not so overbearing that I would tire of it.The fit is nice and compressive and I am loving the pockets for storage. They are very flattering on the bum!
@Deezee007 - I got them today, too. I am debating leaving the tags on until the Stained Glass Love Nightfall ones come out and then picking one of the two. These fullux Speed Tights are totally opaque.
LLA- I vote you keep them!
