The Coco Pique Embrace Hoodie *Luscious. Mine is arriving today and I'll try to get photos of it up as soon as I can.

Pretty Neutral Blush pink Runbeam Short Sleeve tee. (Where are the LONG sleeve Runbeams? I really want long sleeve Runbeams this time of year, they make a great alternative to LS Swiftly tops. But I do give lululemon props for putting out UPF tops this time of year. I have both a Runbeam SS and LS and like them both.) Paired with the Rise and Shine boxer short




 Brown Giant Herringbone Wunder Under Pant
Reader, Ms. J., sent us (thank you!!) some really good photos of the fabric of the Giant Herringbone Wunder Pants. They are mislabeled as black on the website but are brown in actuality. The color code has an 'E' in it which stands for Rich Earth. These are much better photos than the ones I took the other day and really show how brown they are compared to black coco pique fabric.

Are the pics for the Embrace Hoodie from a store in US or Canada?

I just received a boatload of textured pants and got done trying them all on. In my opinion, the brown (mislabeled as black) giant herringbone WUPs are definitely the keepers. They do run a bit snugger for my usual size, but not so much that I would want to size up. The material is perfection, soft, opaque, compressive. The rise is higher than many of my other WUPs, the perfect height to not allow any muffin top. And the waistband is nice and compressive. And most importantly, gives a nice shape to the booty.

The other textured pants are going back - Roll down coco pique with vertical pattern placement - the vertical just wasn't flattering and the material was not as supportive and booty lifting. Same goes for the rolldown black/white herringbone. Shows imperfections more and the black contrast seaming is less than desirable.

I also ordered the black and white striped speed tights and am not sure if I will keep them or not. They are very figure flattering, but sheer, in a deep bend, you could clearly see the white tag. Maybe I will just make sure not to bend over - is this an acceptable compromise for $100 pants?

And finally the passion crops in the multi stripe inkwell pattern. Where to begin. These pants make pantyhose look opaque. Not sure how this material passed muster, but if you want to avoid the hassle of a return, definitely avoid the peep show, I mean passion, crops.

I just got mine. It's super thick and made me feel like a snow man. Fits true to size. I have the sherpa fleece pull over from last year and love it, but with both the sherpa fleece and the luon it's a bit too much thickness. I'd take some pics but my phone just broke!

Just got my herringbone lucious embrace hoodie, too, and it's just a little too thick or something and the way the shoulders are, they made me feel like a linebacker. Sad to say it is going back :( Fit was TTS.

I would size down in the Embrace luscious hoodie. I tried size 6 and felt like I was swimming in it. 4 was better and I could still wear a LS under it. I have a few (newer) scubas in 4 but wish I had gotten a 6, as I feel that it's a bit snug. It was super cozy, but not sure I loved the styling. I'm not sure how I feel about the oversized hood. Oh, and it is heavy!

My herringbone luscious hod die arrived today. It super soft and comfy. I wish it were a touch longer, and that it nipped in a bit more at the waist (it's a little boxy), but it's definitely a keeper. It's so comfortable and warm, I know that I'll get a lot of use out of it.

Just went to the store and saw some new things- the double sided printed skirt that sold out is not worth the money. Simple, cold to touch and not soft. Print is just ok.
Grey gratitude wrap looks brand new,most year they didn't have this color. Saw the silver spoon split pea FTBW bras, guessing this color combo is back from a while back. Tons of vinyasas, I bet they will need to sale them....

Now my treasures from the upload on Tuesday. Brown herringbone - looooooove. I even broke my promise not to buy any lulu pants that now have a $10 price increase for texture. Sharp looking, thicker than this year's black normal herringbone and the rise is higher. They looked particularly sharp with my new karma collected wrap- for the cost, it is fantastic. Long, warm, simple, perfect color, gorgeous hood, roomy in my tts bust and size down bottom. One minor imperfection is the only one snap and thus it tries to open up and looks sloppy. The wrap comes with an extra snap, plus, I have 4 more snaps from my extras on gratitude wraps. It is worth a little mending)). The new FTBW bra with bright pink and nice stained glass pattern. I am not a big fan of FTBW in general, because they tend to push on my back muscle and flatter my minor breasts, lol. BUT...my unique color black CAMO FTBW bra needed a friend which would be as unique as the first one, lol. Keeper for sure.
Thank goodness I didn't like the white herringbone roll downs- yes, thicker herringbone than the other white herringbone that were released in running pants and then went on sale in the US, but who came up with a great idea of black stitching ?(((
Also the mala beads- I just wanted to amuse myself why they are so expensive. Funny the guy at the store didn't know what to do with them as I returned them, he has never seen them before))

If those were high rise I would buy them in a heart beat. I don't buy regular rise WU's any more!

GW was in Edmonton, Canada. Southgate mall and one piece only. Sorry!

I also tried on the herringbone embrace hoodie that just arrived today, and I will also be sending it back. Like others said, it is very bulky in the middle. What is weird is that most lulu items that don't look good on me are usually the wrong size (such as, I should have sized down or sized up). This is sized exactly right (I bought my usual size 6, which fits tight like a scuba), but I felt like a little kid stuffed into a fat winter jacket. My arms felt tight and the material around my waist was pouffy. It made my waist disappear. I will be sending it back.

@8:10 pm for the Flurry fighter pullover... Check the Las Vegas store I was there a few days ago and they had all colors. I got one in black & ultra Violet. I heard all lululemon stores will do phone sales now and they don't charge for shipping. Good luck!

@anon 10:02. I have a black gratitude wrap size 6 that i am thinking of selling. Let me know if you have interest.

Tried on the Embrace Hoodie - Luscious yesterday. The sherpa is heavenly, but the drop shoulders are really, really unflattering. It was an easy decision not to spend the money.

Agree with the comments on the beaded print skirt. Looked thin and in the pictures online, it makes the model's backside look dreadful. I shudder to think how mine would look!

Lots of markdowns at my local store, but I actually didn't buy anything. Lulu makes so many wonderful products, that I don't have room in my workout wardrobe for anything I don't love.

I ordered the lucious embrace hoodie in both my TTS 4 and Define/dance studio size 6. Surprised that the 4 fit better as I was expecting it to be snug. The sleeves are a little shorter making the thumbholes a little less appealing since there isn't much stretch. I think it is really cozy. If it came in another color besides black/gray, I would def. trade it out. Liking it but not sure $128 loving it...

I bought the luscious hoodie but wil be returning it. It makes my arms look gigantic (size 8) because it is so thick! And the pique material is not attached well (not sure how to explai it) so it looks sloppy on with alot of wrinkling of the fabric. Too bad, the fleece is really soft and warm though!

I returned luscious hoodie this morning about 20 minutes after store opened. Associate says, "Gosh, 2nd one already today being returned." I found hoodie bulky, uncomfortable and made me look 15 pounds heavier. It's really too bad because sherpa lining was fantastic. Mine also had a terrible chemical smell when I opened the Fedex yesterday it was overpowering.

Just received my shipment of the High Times pant in the deep coal stripe pattern and they are going back. Sad, because they could be awesome if the details were tweaked a bit. The material is super cozy, like I seriously want to keep them and wear them as the most comfy PJs ever, but as far as using them for workout/casual wear, there are better options out there (like the awesome Rich earth giant herringone WUPs). The material on the striped high times is not thick or compressive, but more soft and stretchy. The pattern could be so booty flattering if the material were thicker. And don't get me started on the dark contrasting seam. Why can't they get this detail right? Seems obvious that you would want to use a color that blends in as much as possible. Sigh...was really looking forward to these this week.
