I received the Inspires Crop II (Mesh) in Harbor Blue/Black today. As Missy Elliott once said, "Jackpot! I think I'm in love." They are STUNNING in person. Bright, vibrant shade of blue. I have the Pigment shade from last year in Pace Tights and I was worried these would be too close in shade. MUCH more blue, not purple at all like some of the pics have been. Somewhat tighter than my last pair of Inspires in Bordeaux from the fall. But I think those loosened up the more I wore them. One cool thing: the inner waistband is the Brush Strokes/Harbor blue print (like on the menthol speed shorts waist band). One odd thing: the back zipper is a menthol or light aqua. Seemed like a odd shade to go with those pants. Keeping these and totally hoping I can trick my bf into thinking these are old - or the pigment pair!
I got my huge order of stuff to try today. Agree with Amanda - love the harbor blue inspires, and also immediately noticed that the waist was tighter! This is good for me because I used to have to tug on the waist in my tts! I imagine the new speed tight iii might be a better fit for me as well, but I have several speed tights in other iterations so I won't buy a pair for now. Also in love with the navy scuba hoodie. It feels velvety!I was surprised that I didn't really like the rise and shine jacket (black). I normally like looser clothes, but the fit was totally blah on me and being short and busty probably aren't helping. I also was SURE I was keeping the moody mirage energy bra... but it fits different (and worse!) from my other energy bras?!?!?! WTF!!!!!! So sad. Will probably be a reluctant return. Maybe it was just a dud and in store I'll have better luck, but I know better than to keep my fingers crossed :( Am I the only one who found this to be the case?I got a few other things too (eeeek), all nice, but have nothing special to note about them. Decision time...
Any angels out there who have happened upon these above mentioned beautiful Harbor blue inspires in a size 2? They weren't uploaded on the fringe 2 and 12 sizes online, although I have heard rumors they were on the Canadian side, and have been spotted in stores intermittently. I can be reached via email at clakatos at hotmail dot com. I would love to be able to find these beauties!
Meh, I tried on the harbor blue inspires and didn't think they were anything special. Material felt a bit thin and cheap, but I don't like inspires to begin with so maybe that's why.
I love inspires and (normal) luxtreme. I don't think the harbor blue inspires feel cheap at all. You just have to like luxtreme :)
Has anyone seen the Cyber Inspires in Denver??? Thanks!
I love Luxtreme and hate Luon. And I have to have the Harbor Inspires now.
I love luxtreme but not fullux.
I love inspires and Luxtreme but Harbour Blue doesn't do anything to me
My Om and Roam Untight Tights that I just bought at full price in October just got a hole in the crotch seam yesterday. I had yet to have this happen to me, so I was shocked. I like the pants, so I fixed it myself with a needle and thread because I don't want to return them, but since this is one of the pants that has several quilt-like patches of fabric sewn together, I will likely not purchase "patch" pants again in the future. Thought I'd let other fans know. Happy Valentine's Day!
Tried on the roll down WUP and was dissapointed with the snakeskin pattern. Thought from the pictures it would almost be shiny but its more dull then I was expecting. Guess that just means moody mirage for me!
Yesterday I spotted new Naval Blue High Times in the East Coast, US. Gorgeous. Little-to-none poly content. Tried to walk away without it, but of course called this AM for charge/ship! Had to have it as I missed out on the Inkwell ones.Now I have to close my eyes for the moody mirage pant. Could only justify the Naval Blue High Times as I returned the snakeskin print roll-down WUP that were too poly & less comfy to me.The Naval Blue is deeper than Inkwell & is reminiscent of Black Swan (with less of a purplish tinge) and the Deep Indigo colorways from a few years back.
@ anon 10:20 am - Nice. I'll have to keep my eye out for those.
Thanks for the heads up on the Om and Roam uptight tights. I have all 4 colors and wear all the time to work so will watch for this!
I got the Cyberstripe FTBW bra in Toronto in the Cumberland store. Toronto shoppers, they still have some left, mainly smaller sizes. The colour code is cxws/seam. There is a bit of texture to the cyberstripe material, which I like. It's 76% nylon and 24% lycra spandex if anyone is wanting to know (I know they made inspire crops). It was $48. I know they have been playing with the price of this bra (one of my FTBW in the past was $42). Cumberland also had the Hot Hot yoga short for $39. They had black and the animal swirl print. Mostly size 4, 6, and at least one 8. I ended up buying a pair of these for Bikram (Shakti shorts are the best though). Just like Boogie shorts, I sized up from 4 to 6 for these shorts.
Anon at 10:20- I also bought the new naval blue high times yesterday in my Wash DC store. Note that they are made in USA, which is the reason I bought them. The quality is superior; they are opaque.
@ anon 5:53am... you can take your tights to a store if you are close by and have them sent out to repair the seams so you don't have to do it yourself
Are the naval blue high times solid? If so I may return my snakeskin ones and wait for the naval blues...
Downing you think there will be Run Times Shorts in any of the lovely bright colors? Would really like some instead of just Speed shorts in the vibrant hues.
OT - I live in Dubai and read in the paper today that Lululemon will be opening showrooms/stores here by fall 2015.
Been calling around all day and just found a store with my size in both the light cyber stripe ftbw and the darker cyber stripe inspires, love that they will charge/ship now. I will not be around during upload and love that I got both items and won't have to stress about missing them. Sounded like a lot of stores just got those two items today.
Have the Moody Mirage Wunder Under crops been released online yet?I was able to find a pair in the store but they seem to run very small. I think I need to size up.
Why would lll open in Dubai? the women in Islamic countries have to cover from top to bottom in a burka and hijab. there is no way muslim women will be allowed to wear lll. oh you mean under the sack? I hope lll will not condone the abuse and torture women endure under shariah law in the middle east.
Amanda, the naval blue high times are solid! I am so happy that they are made in the good 'ol USA as Anon 8:15 has noted.At my NY Lulu store; there was also a stack of solid soot/coal high times. I don't know the nylon/poly content or if they are made in the US. I just couldn't look cuz I already have a pair of soot/gray WUC (in a similar shade of gray) although I would love to have a pair of soot/coal/ gray high times.
When will they release colors like pink, pastels, hot pink etc for int he flow crops and wunder unders? I hate the current fall colors (brown, black, green ugh)... when are the spring/summer colors going to be released? There's no good colors to buy on their site in my size!!!!
Anon @ 3.51 I think you need to stop watching Fox News, what an ignorant comment to make.
@Anon 4:36 Thank you!! I went to my local store this morning and picked up the naval blue high times. They are amazing! So thick and soft. I think I'm going to love them.
I'm a little late in replying to @3.51, but I hope she will see my comment. You can bet anything Lululemon made a thorough business and market analysis before expanding into Dubai. I surfed the Internet for a couple of minutes to see what Lulu can expect there, and I found this in one of the online newspapers dissecting the fitness market in Dubai: "There has been a rise in demand for women's training apparel in the past two years, and having women-only facilities is a large factor for this new market." Apparently there are a LOT of gyms catering to women, who feel uncomfortable in male-dominated fitness facilities. Yeah, the world in Dubai is different from ours. But, Pecunia Non Olet - money doesn't smell. Even in gyms.
