Pistachio Cool Racerback Color Comparison: Summer 2015 to March 2016 Versions

Last summer's Pistachio on the left compared to the new Pistachio, on the right. The new one is a touch brighter but I think it's hard to tell without seeing them side by side. It could be due to my old CRB being washed a few times. I know my Zippy Green Energy bra looks dull as heck these days. The interior stitching is different, too.

Thanks for all the photos the older one looks a tiny bit lighter? Hard to tell. How do they compare in person?

It may just be due to washing that the summer 2015 one isn't as bright as the new one. They're so close.

That is what I was thinking.

How's the softness? Thick? Same question to anyone who's seen the Pink Paradise in person. Thanks!

It's not fully opaque but decently soft, especially after washing.

Just wondering if the Pistachio CRB is a neon colour in person or not? It's always hard to judge from only seeing them in photos online. Hoping we'll get this one in Canada too, and also hoping it isn't too neon. I have the Pistachio in both Swiftly Scoop Short Sleeve and Swiftly Long Sleeve and they're not too neon, but Swiftlys are always kind of muted compared with the same colour in the other Lulu fabrics.

Rise and Shine, I got my Pink Paradise CRB today. I'm in love with the colour and have taken the tags off! It's soft, and a little on the thin side but not too bad. I tried it on with a dark striped bra and the dark grey stripes showed through a bit in the light, but having said that I do have a bigger bust (32DD/E), and I'm sure it's going to be fine with a lighter colour bra.

Thank you LLA and Anon @ 12:20 AM! I really appreciate it. I'm overseas, so I order and the package sits at my parents' house for months until I'm in the US for a visit. If I don't like what I ordered, too bad for me; returns are impossible and selling on eBay too much of a hassle if I'm only around for a few weeks. Thanks for your help!

@12:20 it is NEON. Not as neon as the ray CRB or flashlight/grapefruit but it I wear it walking/running at night and I don't need to worry about reflective gear

FYI, they restocked Kayak Blue CRB.

Oh thanks for the intel that the Pistachio IS a neon. Maybe I will pass on this one and hope for a Jungle Green one, which is what I am after as far as greens go.

On the Pink Paradise CRB, it is a lovely colour, soft & nice but definitely thinner than other CRBs. It is a bit disappointing but I will probably keep mine (hang tags still on, bought it Saturday). It is definitely NOT as thin as that sad excuse of a Rich Earth CRB they put out a year ago or so, which was on-line only for my city. It went straight back for a refund (and yes, ended up on wmtm and was not even worth it then).

Thank you anon 11:01 AM!

Yes! anon 4:55 PM, a Jungle Green CRB would be perfect! Fingers crossed!
