Britt's Picks

lululemon moody mirage wunder-under-crop

lululemon groove pant ii

The fit has been tweaked on Grooves for a wider and higher rise waistband and the flare has been relaxed. Lol, they relaxed the fit of the flare (in reality, knee) based on "feedback", which was essentially give us the old fit back. Why must successful items be messed with?  I do like the wider, higher waist, though.

lululemon skinny groove ii

The Skinny Grooves also got a wider and higher waistband, too. Now, when is a new wider, higher waistband hitting Inspire crops?

aargh, now that I know they have also made a PANT version of the moody mirage roll down WUs, I'm not sure if I should just wait for the pants, or go ahead and order the crops. I would really prefer pants. Especially since I got to try them on in store (didn't buy due to horrible pattern placement) and found them to be very thick and better suited for cooler weather. If anyone sees the pant version in the US please share, Thx!

Are you freakin kidding me!!! Canada does not get the moody WU's?!?! Yet again Canada gets paradise grid items, none of the pretty water stuff released around Xmas and now this :-(

As usual, Canada gets the only thing(s) I want. I've just about had enough with Lulu, I think. Maybe the summer stuff will be better

Anyone know what top the model is wearing with the light speed tight?

I am with you LLA - bring on the high rise in the inspires! I bought two pairs of the straight up pants and love my rebel runner crops which all have higher waists. No more muffin top for me!! Not to mention the higher waists are so much more comfortable because they do not dig in. I love them. To avoid these issues in inspires I have been sizing up but then the compression is not as great but I'm willing to trade one for the other.

The vest and the light speed tight look promising.

The moody mirage crops were in my store today along with the coordinating fringe fighter. score!

Ah hah! So THATS why all the skinny grooves went on WMTM. I liked the old one but thinking the higher waistband will be more flattering.

Also...anon @8:21 I have the same dilemma. I love the moody mirage print but prefer long/full length if I have the choice over a crop. Im going to be checking my local store in Chicago tonight to see what they have in stock.

@ anon 11:30 pm - I think it's something new.

Ugh, I know I'm in the minority, but ENOUGH with the high rise waist. I already roll down the normal waistband, creating an ugly roll. A high rise one will be that much worse.

Also, I keep getting screwed by living in the US. :) Canada is getting the black cherry 105f singlet. They already got the speeds in vintage pink & coal. Sigh....

Better for my wallet, right?!

I'm not sure how I feel about the changes that have been made to the Groove Pants. I'll have to try them and see. The Grooves have always been my favourite pants ever, so I'm really hoping I'll like these just as much, or hopefully even more. The high rise waist looks promising, but I'm not sure about the more relaxed fit at the knee... I guess I'll have to wait and see before judging. But I agree with you LuluAddict, they always seem to mess up the most loved pieces. I've noticed that since the Defines have made a comeback that the waist has been looser fitting and therefore not as flattering in my usual size, I've bought at least four since the comeback, the last one I bought a size down because of this. All of my older Defines in a size 4 fit perfectly, the new ones are too loose at my waist in a four but fit good at the waist in a size 2 although a bit tighter at the bust. I want the old fit back!

@ anon 1:44 pm - I have not bought a pair of the latest version of the Groove pants. My first and last pairs were when Tinted Canvas was out, before they tightened up the knee area. I am glad they are relaxing it back out.

I didn't notice the waist on the Defines. I'll have to lay my Lotus Camo against my older Potion Purple one and compare them.
