Those crops w print front are just odd. Hero blue- finally something I can look forward to. I do hope lulu releases some shorter crops with thigh pockets. More solid color crbs and bras for that matter.
Question about the seamless material in the Light Speed Long Sleeve...is this fabric wicking? No where in the details do I see sweat-wicking. So I will assume it is not a sweat-wicking fabric (never assume). Why would lulu make a running shirt that does not wick? Maybe they inadvertently left out a key feature?Anyone know?
anonymous at 9:19 PM - The fabric is sweat-wicking.Here is from description: "We designed this layer with lightweight, sweat-wicking fabric to help keep us feeling cool when we're bringing the heat. We added strategically placed open-hole venting (hint: check the arms, elbows and sides) to give us room to let off steam when we're moving at warp speed."
Where can i find the hero blue high times???
The photos were from the Sarasota, FL store.

The new DSPs lol slightly flared to me?
I just tried on and purchased the DSP IIIs. They were suuuuuuuuper flattering unlike the IIs. They were tight and nice in the bum and the legs were a narrow, straight leg. I'm not super pear shaped but I definitely carry most of my weight in my butt/upper thigh area. I'm excited over how good they look. I have one pair of IIs that I've worn maybe a handful of times. Price increase was super lame though.
I need help from the experts. Did Lulu change the length of DSP's at some point? I bought a pair from an ebayer, and the size tag inside says 5, not 6tall, but they are probably 4 inches longer than all of the size 6 pairs I have. Mine have all been purchased within the last 3 years, and the ebay ones are definitely older--they have heavy metal ends on the drawstring at the waist. I'll definitely need to resell these, but I'm not sure how I should list them. Are they actually talls? Or did the regulars ued to be longer? Any help is appreciated!!
anna@7:05pm that's odd. from the u.s., the australian site reads the same as the u.s. site.
Yes, it's wicking. It's the same material as the Time Warp Tight.
i actually like those stop at nothing crops w/ the two colors...... as i get older and not liking my thighs most days these are great!!!
I don't dislike the new DSPs as much as I initially thought, but they are kind of lacking in personality. Also, since I sometimes wear my DSP IIs as a cover up layer (over leggings or a leotard and tights), it's easier to put them on if you've got a wider hem at the bottom. I guess I'm just not understanding why anyone would pay so much money for just a plain pair of straight leg pants that you can't wear for layering. If you take out the style and the function, what's left? I mean, you can always wear them around the house, but for $118? Sorry to those who like them; just my humble 2 cents...
Anon 812....I completely agree. I wear a pair of my DSPIIs at least at one point every day. (Have like 10 pairs) Usually as a top layer over tights or shorts to the gym since I don't have to remove my sneakers to get them on and off. They are also perfect for dog walking with or without a layer underneath. I love the ruching too as it contrasts well with tighter butt area. The 3s will take all of that functionality away as well as the unique style details. Zella, UA, Atlhleta, old navy and target have been trying to knock off these pants for years but never got that combo of ruching and butt area right. Now lulu just dumbed theirs down to competitors level and became irrelevant. The DSP3 are fine but certainly nothing special now and given the narrower straight leg look like the ladies are wearing men's pants to me...especially in that one red grape shot. They look like they are worth less....probably 88 but no way more at 118.
why can't they make dsc: dance studio crops? I am too short for the pants and like the crops they never come out w/ these anymore, wonder why????
Small but crucial typo in my earlier post: the size tag in my DSPs from ebay says 6 not 5. Can anyone give me insight on the length of DSPs over the years?
I saw the DSP III's in the store today. Did not try on as I don't love the fabric. They looked like they would fit over tights/leggings. Has anyone tried them?Coincidentally, I needed a pair of super lightweight (like swift ultra) pants similar to the DSP's that I could layer. The fabric was my 1st consideration. I ended up getting a pair at Athlete - basically the DSP in swift ultra. It's called La Viva.That's a 1st for me.
@Amy - yes, at one time there was no Regular and Tall length. There was just one length for everyone. I don't remember a size "5" though. I always thought the sizing was the same. If you like them, instead of reselling why not take to a Lulu store to have hemmed for free? If you don't have a Lulu store nearby i'd contact GEC and ask how they hem pants if you don't have a store to take them to. If you just want to resell I'd make sure to list the inseam and list them as Talls.
@Amy 8:59 are they legit? I don't think lululemon ever used odd sizing, it's always been 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.
At Anon 8:59...okay, noticed you said you had a size typo in your original post. And yes, at one time there was just one length of Studio Pant - there wasn't a Tall or Regular. Keep and get hemmed by Lulu!
i have a pair of the new DSP and I think the bottom is wide enough to layer. The previous versions were over the top in repect to the material at the bottom. I am petite and I am happy with the change, I have the fatigue one and have been using for layering to go to yoga.M
Good point, Anon at 3:10. Your height makes a big difference in how much you like the fuller DSP IIs. I'm 5'9" and wear a regular length 8, so the extra volume doesn't look too extreme on me. For a different body type, the old DSPs might have been overwhelming.
Yes but are they wide enough that u don't have to remove your shoes to get them off? That has always been the biggest selling point for me. I am 5'1 and 98lbs and never found the volume overwhelming. Are people not cinching the bottom hem? I cinch them and then let the excess fabric hang over onto sneaker and they are perfect and don't look cinched at all because of extra fabric. To each their own but I just think the new ones look so ordinary and I am sad about that. Wish they would at least offer both.
very interesting how we all have different likes. with the new DSP, I still have plenty of extra fabric to drape over my foot. I think the old style looked like rave pants circa 1993.M
