My eagerly-awaited Mesh With Me LSs arrived Friday and I could not be happier with them. They remind me of products lululemon used to make in the heyday era of 2009-2010 - a gorgeous-colored, functional yet feminine piece with a flattering fit. Part of me wonders if the reason I am so enthusiastic about these tops is because they are the first technical tops to come out in years in solid saturated colors. We've had too many years of stripes, heathereds, dull grays or bland pastels. It seems as though Ivivva has stolen all the colorful fun from lululemon. That has been a mistake since a large part of the loyal fanbase latched onto lululemon in the first place because of the bright palette of the technical pieces. Anywhoo, back to the Mesh With Me LS - They have a nice level of detail - the inch hem on the bottom, the lightly curved hem, the second type of mesh used in the front of the neck and for the ruffle detail in the back - just the right amount of detail to liven it up.  I've been asked as to whether these fit TTS. I'd say it's a figure skimming TTS but I'm reading some people are sizing up for more room in the shoulders. All the colors are nicely opaque for items made of mesh. I would caution people to treat these as gingerly as swiftlys since they are made of mesh. That means they're technical wear only and wash in a lingerie bag. I cannot wait to give these a try on a run.

I also ordered a Tough It Out Tank in the Bordeaux. Though I poo-poo them when they first came out when I tried it on at the store I found them very comfortable. I ended up getting a black one and ordered the Bordeaux on Tuesday. The woman who checked out in front of me bought three. It's a very comfortable tank with decent support. I'd say the bra gives similar support and coverage to the Energy bra.

I also ordered the Turn Around Tights. They're nicely soft and have a comfortable waistband. I am leaning towards keeping them.
