Namaskar Hoodie and Textured Wave Speed Tight. I don't get why these speed tights stop at a 10 yet the Inspire crops and tights in the same material go to a 12. I would have bought the Speed Tights, in addition to the Inspire crops I just bought, if they made them.  I don't understand the random - especially lately - choosing of what items make it to a 12 and which don't. For instance, the new Movement Jackets stop at a 10. So do the Namaskar Hoodies. Canada is getting 12s in the Free to Be Wild bra and the US is not. Australia got 12s in the Water Bound bras and North America did not. It seems there is no rhyme or reason as to whether an item makes it to a 12 lately and it's extremely frustrating from a customer point of view. It's very irritating when very basic jacket styles, such as the Movement Hoodie, do not come in a 12.

i completely agree with you about the availability of size 12s. There have been a ton of products i have wanted to buy and couldn't. i can never get too excited about a product because there may be the chance they wont make it :(

Most of the FTBW bras you show on the photos are sold out at the LL website. I don't undestand why Lululemon doesn't produce more of this super popular item: it gets sold out quick and not everyone can be glued to the computer during the upload time.. :-(((

I agree with you about the sizes, I'm a size 2 and I have the same problem with bottoms. A lot of new styles come from size 4, or just some of the colors in 2. Not to mention that they make so few they fly from the shelves. Very frustrating

It's interesting. Customers want to give LLL their money but LLL does not want to take it (i.e. make size 12 consistently). Yet, they create so many items in recent years (interspersed with many good items this year) that are ugly design, poor quality, juvenile or junior. Why do they waste so many resources on utter crap instead of actually making the stuff people want, in the size they want and need. Do NOT get me started on their lack of vision in not offering or not even TRYING petite and tall versions of the clothing (in addition to 'regular' of course).

@ anon 7:07 pm - Not offering petites in things is also a big error on their part.

I talked to one of the eds about clothing in size 12, she said it doesn't sell.

I tried on the movement hoodie. It's cute and fit me well but the French terry was soooo thin. I have a back to class jacket that's similarly designed from a few years back and the difference in thickness is noticeable. I'm not impressed that they're still skimping on quality.

I also wish they would make smaller pants and shorts. Rough problem to have, I know, but a lot of the smallest sizes are really big on me. I do get my pants and shorts taken in sometimes, which of course adds to the cost but it works well for me. I just had my wonderfully ugly Karmacollected pants altered and they're great

I also wear a 12 (unless the 10s run big) and it's getting annoying. Making full size runs can't be that difficult!

@lululover - I think it depends on the local market as to whether the larger sizes sell. I'd accept them making some size 12 items on line only. I'd also buy the 'it doesn't sell' argument a little better if other countries weren't getting size 12 items, such as the Water Bound bra Australians got and the Free to Be Wild bras that Canada got. It's the INCONSISTENCY in the sizing runs that annoys me. There are size 12 Inspire Crops and Tights in the Textured Wave fabric but not Speed Tights. It really makes no sense because I assume they decided not to make the size 12 in the Speed Tight because the light color doesn't favor a larger rear/thighs? Yet, there are two other run bottom style available in size 12 so it defies explanation. In addition, the much more problematic pattern - OM stripe - is made in a 12 in the Speed Tight. I've seen that print modeled on a few women. You tend to need slender legs to really carry it off. The Textured Wave is a much more flattering print on larger legs.

Moreover, Runday crops go up to a 12 in the Parallel stripe pattern yet the Speed Tights stop at the 10 in PS. It's like the designers flip a coin when it comes to how far a size run extends to.

It doesn't make any sense in regards to the sizing looks like people who are a size 12 or 2, get the slim pickings.
I notice that the couple stores I go to in NYC tend to put the larger sized pants on the low shelves and the stuff on hangers in the back. 4 6 and 8 seem to be lulus regular sizes. I think that lulu pretty much doesn't want to deal with the larger or xsmall sizes.

I'm another one out of the mix with their lack of size 2 bottoms. There are several Speed Tights i would've bought, but they didn't come in size 2. i am fine if they want to have some sizes online only, but still.

and you're right that it doesn't make sense that they offer them in other countries.
