Britt's Picks - Swim Line!

lululemon britt's picks




lululemon surf to sand sport top
lululemon surf to sand sport tie top

lululemon surf to sand triangle

lululemon surf to sand booster

I definitely want to give this one a try (though it looks like @ss on the model in this photo), even if the back looks more like a Ta Ta Tamer than a swim top. Dragonfly is a cute color.

lululemon surf to sand sport cheeky

lululemon surf to sand boyshort

lululemon surf to sand surf short

lululemon surf to sand rashie

This rash guard is already out in Australia. I hope we'll be getting the twelves, also. It seems like this is all Surf to Sand but I also hope we'll be seeing some Water Bound bras.

I have to wonder if lulu designers know what a real body looks like. Maybe they can design swimsuits for that. I'm a size 0. I would never imagine wearing bottoms that showed that much cheek. Nevermind what it will look like once wet and totally ridden up and become a thong.

Lots of money saved.

I have a question about Ebay :) Do you know if Wunder Unders and In The Flow crops are often faked? I bought a gently used Wunder Under in Power Purple and want to make sure its real. I read an older blog post where you mentioned some Define and Scuba jackets and groove pants are often faked on Ebay... but what about WU or ITF crops? Thank you!

Gosh unless you have 0% body fat and are A/B cup how could you wear these swim pieces? As usual I have to buy my swim gear from Athleta. Their designs are more supportive and realistic.

These are cute - but totally unwearable for me. I always get my swimsuits at Athleta too.

Definitely going to give the swim short a try.

I love LLM but they really suck at designing the swim line. This range might be useful for lounging around the pool, but not for water sports. I'll be spilling flesh left right top bottom. The surf shorts are probably the only exception. I love them for SUP.

all the tops look too small, wouldn't cover if you're bigger than a B cup. too bad

I have heard that cheeky suit bottoms look better on everyone no matter what ur body type, and after completely disbelieving it, I gave it some thought and I think there might be some validity to it. Just a thought

Michelle Lu said...

Agreed! There's no way those tiny triangles would stay up!

@OHBabbs - yeah, Athleta kicks butt with their swim wear. I have a ton of Athleta swim stuff.

I swear lululemon must be deaf. Don't they get the same feedback year after year, swim capsule after capsule regarding the skimpy suit cuts???
I have yet to be interested in ANY swim collection lulu has put out. I don't want full-coverage for a bottom piece, but their idea of medium coverage is not the same as mine. And I'm lean on top but I feel like I'd be spilling out of these pieces with a large 36B. Not to mention I'm not buying the top if I can't find a coordinating bottom to wear with it.
I'll stick to JCrew or Athleta for swimsuits.

Rise and Shine said...

Ugh. What's with the HO-HO-HO swim bottoms? Seriously, "medium coverage"? WTF are they smoking? I don't want to see that much ass and I definitely don't want to show it. I know this isn't new for Lulu, but I keep hoping they'll come to their senses.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:09 am - Lol, I was just writing the same thing about them getting the same feedback year after year - nothing for bustier women and too much cheek showing in the bottoms.

no support at all for C or D cups and yeah, I want to dig a wedgie out all the time at the beach...um no.
They money and time they waste designing this crap.

The boy short has potential. The green booster bra looks good too. The skimpy bottoms are quite popular in Europe so they don't bother me but I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing them in north America. I wear cheekys at my pool and in Europe but no here. Lol.

they obviously don't test the suits on real people while making their designs. I can see wearing the skimpy stuff on a beach in South America, but not moving much. The colors are really cool though, what a waste of fabric.

I bought the surf to sand triangle top last year (or whatever it was called). It works well on someone with big lats and no boobs. So, I loved it. And it is a tiny top but I felt fully supported and could be pretty active in it without fear that I was going to show too much of what little I have.

Get w/ it ladies the cheekie bottom is the it bottom in swimwear today it totally looks better on most athletic women, the old school full bottom looks like granny pants on athletic behinds totally makes them look bad!!!!! take a look on some designer swimwear websites the one pieces are even cheekie this season.

You must be a guy... I'm not sure any woman, fit or not, would want to be picking that wedge all day long... Just looking at it gives me the creeps!
This cheeky, wedgie, hootchie hanging out fad can begone already, imo...

anon 4:27 :) yur funny, i'm 12:34 and i'm a 49 yr old fit woman and most of my bikinis are cheekie cut and i think it looks better and no they don't go up ur cr... but you have to let them ride low on the hips. designer swimwear all have this cut, just saying but i realize some don't like this so there are alot of swimwear that still have the full cut bottoms, you made me chuckle w/ the guy comment that is so true that they would like that huh???? ;)
