The Pedal to the Medal SS actually looks really cute on her. I didn't order one because I thought it looked too short and I prefer my tops on the long side, but she's making me rethink it.
Gahhh! That picnic dress is taunting me! Question: I'm really digging the Alarming WU, but afraid it might show sweat. Any experience?
@Sophie - I tried on the Pedal to the Medal today. The fabric was really nice but I thought the styling was kind of meh compared to the What the Sport SS. The bottom kind of caught on my hips and the waist is rather straight. If I can find it on WMTM at a nice price I might pick one up because of the material OR if it comes out in a pretty color like Peacock or another blue/green. I don't understand why lululemon is making all these nice breathable technical tops in Alarming and Grapefruit. There *are*other colors they could use.
@luluaddict Thanks for the feedback about the PttM SS. Did you try it in the same size as the PttM tank? I can wear a 4 or 6 in tops and got a 4 in the tank which fits fine (haven't worn it in action yet), but I was thinking of maybe trying the SS in a 6 to get a little more length, which sometimes help with them catching on the hips. Of course then it may be too boxy...anyway I agree with you about the color selection. For awhile there we were getting all blue-toned releases, now I feel like we're getting all corals/oranges.Not sure why they can't stagger the color releases better!OT - I ordered the Splendor Bra in grapefruit. To me the fit is odd, BUT I am a 34B and I know it's meant for larger busted ladies. Even so, I was spilling out the top of it - a double boob situation. Very strange. Also the straps are set wide so it was cutting me weird in the armpit area which I've never had with any other Lulu bras (and I think I've tried most of them!). It's a shame because I do think it's cute in the back, but I also didn't love the vertical seaming on the cups in the front. Ho hum.
I agree. I love the what the sport SS but when I tried on the orange/peachy color that was on markdown, I hated it. It was see through and seemed like it would catch on everything. The colour did nothing for me and would match very little so I left it. If it was purple, blue, grey, black or almost any other color, I would have purchased for $39
I am with you on the technical tops in Alarming and Grapefruit. Neither color looks good on me. Funny when I returned the Alarming Pedal to the Medal I had bought I told the Ed they need to make them in a blue! I bought the black and would buy another if the color choices were better. I was the one who wrote about potential for it to ride up on Friday. I wore it to spin yesterday and the middle material gets really heavy with sweat and pulls on the mesh. It was starting to bother me by the end of the class.
@Sophie - I tried on the Pedal to the Medal SS in a 12 since that is my normal size. I still found it a big snug across the chest and a big snug on the hip. I bought the Pedal to the Medal tank in a 10 but when I played around with it at home decided it would most likely ride up on me. The What the Sport has a scalloped hem and has cutouts at the sides so it lays flatter over my rear. I think that probably makes the difference for my shape. @ anon 6:23 am - It is a little see-through. I am willing to live with it because I love the material so much.I wear it looser so it helps a little with that. The Blush Quartz is even worse, see through wise. I haven't had any snags in it. I have an older shirt - the Revitalize - made of the same material it's very durable as far as snags are concerned. I mean, I wouldn't rub up against a brick wall in it, but it definitely snags much less easily than a swiftly.
