A Few Fit Reviews - Live Natural Crop, Mountain Tank and More

Photos of the Heathered Black Live Natural crop showing the gather details at the back of the waist and bottom cuff. I tried these on yesterday and was lucky enough to snag a last pair of the ombre ones. However, I also liked the heathered black and if money were no object I would have gotten them, too. The cotton is soft, thick, and opaque. If you are an old time lululemon fan then you remember their OQOQO line of cotton items and the Live Natural crops remind me of the items in that line. I think they are a fantastic piece. I plan to use these more for casual wear but I've read reviews of people being happy with the performance of these in the gym. I thought the fit was very similar to Wunder Unders and TTS.

I also tried on the Live Natural pant and while they share the same name the design is quite a bit different, especially in the waistband, which is layered and a bit bulky-feeling:

I didn't find the waist on the Live Natural Pant nearly as comfortable, nor as cute looking, as the crop.  The fabric was the same as in the crop, soft and opaque.

I was in a total comfy clothes mode yesterday but I do love the two Vitasea Every Yogi tanks I have. I really like the longer, rear-covering length and loose fit on this tank. I definitely would love another one. One thing I would love to see is lululemon bring back the prints in the Every Yogi/Vitasea tops. I did end up sizing down in the tank but I was really torn as to get my regular size, too, since I really liked the flowy feel and look. From the comments I have seen the people who like this tank really like it and get more than one. I plan to use this for casual wear rather than the gym and think it will be fantastic for the summer.

I tried on the Cozy Crop top and really liked the style and brushed luxtreme material (love this material - so great for cutting the wind!). If it were a full length shirt I'd be all over it. It's a nice piece but not really practical for me at the price, though you could wear it layered over a CRB. I found the sizing a snug TTS. I also tried on the Yoga Over skirt and liked that, too, though I would need to wear it with spanx to smooth everything out underneath it. I found it TTS.

I tried on the 1/8 Stripe Cadet Cut the Crops, too. I didn't really love these - they were just ok - and found the material rather sheer in a bend. I thought the fit was TTS.

I also tried on the Run Righteous tank and found it a clingy TTS. I think for running I'd probably size up in it. I personally don't really care for the big cuts in the back but it's an ok shirt.

The new camouflage and Beachscape Multi bangbuster headbands. There is a lot of variation in both prints and you'll have to cherry pick.
