Down Right Cozy Pullover, Berry Rumble Fluffed Up Jacket, and More

Berry Rumble Fluffed Up Jacket (thanks to Ms. K. for her photo).



Down Right Cozy Pullover (thanks to Ms. K. for her photos).




The SE $198 Lights Out Race With Grace has a very fancy tag.


Backside of the dotted fabric panel.


Showing the brushed luxtreme fabric on the left and the dot fabric on the right. You can feel the dots through the fabric.
Since I am a huge Race with Grace fan I tried on the $198 Lights Out version today just for grins. It's has a pretty cool look but the panels made of the reflective dot material doesn't feel like brushed luxtreme on the inside and I really noticed the feel of the dot pattern on my skin. If you are stalking this for markdown you might want to size up so you won't notice the patterned material so much. A woman in one of my lulu groups reported that her store hadn't sold a single piece of the collection over the weekend.

Hmm, just noticed this on the website regarding the reflective technology. No wonder I could feel the pattern through the fabric. I also thought the fabric and top seemed a bit heavier than regular brushed lux/Race with Grace.



Sunshine Coast LS and Shine On SE Wunder Under Pants. I liked this sweater but it seemed a bit snug through the shoulders/upper arms. I also don't care for the back panel being thinner than the rest of the sweater.  I was hoping for more of relaxed fit like the Cabin Yogi Sweater.


Enhearten Tank and Free Flow Crop


Radiant Jacket and Free Flow Crop. I tried this jacket on today and really liked it. The fit was roomy.

Pigment Wave Berry Rumble Pace Tights, Shine On Cool Racerback and Energy Bra.



Shine On Energy Bra, Cool Racerback and Pigment Wave Pace Crops. I tried the Shine On Energy bra today and it seemed to fit snugger in the band than a regular one. That could be because of the mesh parts. The little window created by the extra horizontal strap is cute but creates, as someone on one of my boards put it, 'back fat opportunities'.  I didn't realize this bra is the same as used in the new Nouveau Limits tank. I tried that tank on, too, but didn't care for the big opening in the back. I think it's a nice tank but I prefer a tank with a closed lower back. I also tried on the Kick It Sweatpants. I liked those a lot - super soft and cozy. They fit large so if you might want to size down in them for a more fitted look. I tried on the Fleece Out and didn't care for it at all. I thought it looked rather cheap in person. I also tried on the Align and Define LS and really liked it. I would have gotten the Berry Rumble one but there was only one in my size in the store and it had some stitching imperfections so I left it. I might try another store for it tomorrow.

Has anyone else received a high number of emails from lululemon stating orders have been canceled or items are out of stock? The first email offered me a $25 coupon for the inconvenience but subsequent emails just say order canceled. Super bummed about this since my orders were Xmas gifts. Fingers crossed for pop backs. But mostly I'm offended that after the first email no explanations were provided for the canceled orders so I had to call the guest educators to learn stock had run out.

The ladies look lovely but that mesh CRB just looks trashy.

The SE edition stuff is a nice idea and has a practical use but it misses the mark in that:
- exorbitant prices
- ugly snake pattern
- glass beads. To weigh you down, JUST what every runner wants!

LLL needs to focus on making their core pieces solid and not continuing to churn out so much crap that generally all goes to wmtm. They now have the premise that as long as it looks pretty, some people will buy it at the ever increasing prices. It's now clear that wmtm now gets you down to 'regular' retail prices that we're familiar with but sorry, I'm not a sucker.


I do not find the shine on energy bra and CRB a flattering combination, even on person who can pull this off. I'm slim and fit and could wear this but it has zero appeal. I would never waste my money on such a "CRB" when I could have a classic one...although getting one in a nice material these days is few and far between.

LLA, how was the fit on the shoulders of the Align and Define? I've seen them look a bit pouffy or bunchy in quite a few pictures. Do they lie flat? I'm afraid they might be like the shoulders of the Switchback long sleeve a few years ago. I don't know if you remember, but the shoulders always formed a little sticky-uppy bit, even when the arms were hanging straight down. They ended up going to mark-down.

My gut says WMTM was likely overloaded with buyers, with multiple orders coming in simultaneously. Not surprised about the cancelled orders. Disappointing, but difficult to avoid. If it was anything like the sale racks in the stores, things were flying off the rack with what looked like a swarm of bees after honey. I'm just glad to see the stuff go.

The berry rumble jacket looks like a must have. Ditto for the dress...both colors. Ugh! This can't be happening to my wallet!

Hey Lulu Addict, I was noticing your comment on the Sunshine Coast LS about perhaps the shoulders being a bit tight, have your heard it being solved if you size up or would that make the overall sweater too baggy? Thanks!

How wonder how those glass beads will stick in the wash, bedazzled nightmare!

The down jacket from Black Friday sale in red has tons of black feathers looking like stains....how about beige one? Did anyone get it?

On the contrary, the man's rulu 1/2 zip that is on WMTM Canada is super soft

LuluAddict said...

@kaila Kwan - I have a friend who sent me her TTS and size up photos - she is 5'4" and a size 6 - and it isn't super baggy in the size up but it does get a bit long.

I just got a white enhearten tank from the new lulu at 5th and 17th street NYC. The lulu fabric is the old thick buttery material, the bra will definitely work for busty ladies.
I am testing it out this evening.
The one shown in the picture above is really beautiful, I have a scoop neck in a similar color so I went for the white.

I agree! It looks like it could be club wear with the amount of mesh.

Anon 10:40 - I placed a number of orders from WMTM on both Thursday night and Sunday night and was lucky enough to get everything (have received all my shipping notices). I would be bummed out too!!

I couldn't size up because it became very loose and drapey and long just as LLA said her friend experienced. It was a bit tight in the shoulders but I'm hoping it will loosen a tad after a half hour of wear.

Can anyone comment on the fit of the Pace tight? I'm frustratingly between sizes measurement-wise and can often do a 4 or 6. I find the 4 tight in the waist, but the 6 gives more wrinkling at the knee (and I worry about the constant pull up of the waist on a run with the more comfortable fit). So is it better to be on the tight side in these or looser? (I have thinner legs, but am thicker-waisted).

FYI, Price went up on the shine on crb( $42-$48) and the shine on energy bra ($48-$54). Ugh

Lululover said...

Looks like they are still $42 on the web site and also rang at $42 at the store when I bought mine. They were marked at $48 on the tag though

The enhearten tank was great in yoga last night, it stayed put and didn't bind me or make me feel uncomfortable. I am busty 34DD 120# and 5'-3" the 6 fit really well and I am so happy that I am not spilling out when working out. I will definitely get another one.

Anyone know how warm the downright cozy pullover is? I'm not a runner but using in Saskatchewan Canada when weather is 0- minus 15
