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.
