Var City Crops with a Hero Blue Var City Muscle Tank and Seven Wonder Sculpt Tank.

I went to the store today and ended up coming home with the Blurry Belle Real Quick Tights. I thought I had tried these on when they first came out but now I don't think so. I really like the wide high waist on these - it's super comfy. The seaming on the backside is also very flattering. I ordered the Blurry Belle High Rise Wunder Under Crops at the upload but when I tried them on in the store I preferred the luxtreme fabric. Both fabrics are opaque with nude undies and fade very little with stretching. I wouldn't mind Pace Rivals or Speed Crops in this print because I love thigh pockets but I do like the way the Hero Blue piping breaks up the leg, which is nice when you have large thighs. My only nit is there are no solid Hero Blue technical tops to pair with this. I have the Deep Zinfandel CRB on its way to me, which looks fantastic with this print. I definitely like a dark top with this print - I tried on the Lilac Var City and Sculpt Tanks with these bottoms and felt like I had pajamas on.

Other things I tried on: the Lilac Swiftly SS - this is another print Swiftly that loses a bit of softness and stretch with the print. The Making Moves LS - hated this. I can see why people are sizing up in it, it was tight across the armpits for me. The Making Moves Tank - it was ok but I'd rather get a Sculpt Tank for $10 less. Lilac Sculpt Tank - I really like the Hero Blue (?) contrast stitching used to jazz the tank up. It makes a nice change from the normal solid-colored Sculpt Tank. 

One more thing - I took the tags off my Black Swiftly tank this morning and right after I put it on I ordered a back up - and I never buy back ups of anything. It's super soft and a really nice basic. I'm going to get a lot of wear out of it.

Glad to hear you like the Real Quick Tights! Mine are arriving tomorrow and I can't wait.

I ordered three BLACK swiftly tanks because I fell in love with the SS AND LS. So silky and soft. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

@ anon 10:13 pm - lol. I don't feel so bad now. I actually ordered my current size and a size down for future me to hoard.

Lol yes I also like to hoard Lululemon for sure

hmdowd said...

Thanks for the advice on the Swiftly! (or maybe no thanks..haha) I've now ordered the black and some other colors. Do you like it better than the CRB? I already love those...

Kim Smith said...

I love the black swiftly tank too! Why can't all the swiftly tanks be this soft? Are they a different material?

I LOVE my new true Black Swiftly Short Sleeve and Long Sleeve! I want back ups too! They are super soft and stretchy -love them so much. I wear my Swiftly tops a lot, for everything, even casual wear, and have been waiting forever for a true solid black.

Smart Move LLA! The only time I ordered 2 of the same was the original Street To Studio Crops in Cadet Blue, yes crops, when first introduced they were shorter, cheaper and deemed "crops". The following year they added an inch or two to the inseam, called them pants and jacked the price up! I don't regret for one minute buying two of the same colour. If they ever bring back zinfandel in a medium hue swiftly I would buy two of those and if they ever brought back the Dance Studio Crops well then I would probably buy half a dozen pairs just to make sure I had them to wear for many years, just in case they were ever shelved again.

I agree with you about choosing the Sculpt Tank over the Making Moves Tank and I really like the lilac one too with the dark piping trim, I didn't know it was hero blue, I thought it looked like DZ. Either way, a small design detail that really adds a lot.

I'm with you LLA, I ordered 2 of the Black long sleeve swiftlys, one in each size. One for my skinny days and one for my chunky days..ha.

Side note-just got off the phone with Customer Service. I needed a return on a pair of crops because of pilling and was accused of not washing correctly. I blasted them good. I'm pretty sick and tired of spending THOUSANDS of dollars and very rarely do I make a return but when I do, I get the 3rd degree. And, to make matters worse, it takes a MONTH to process. Told them they need to make changes or I'm out for good. Ok, rant over...

LLA, can you fit a phone into the side waistband pocket of the real quick tights? thanks!

I am with you on the BB pattern in a Pace Rival, I would love that because I am kind of obsessed with those side pockets.

I just ordered the black swiftly tank from someone on a Lulu FB site who took the tags off hers only to realize it is too big. Do you find that it fits tts like any other swiftly?

Random question- No special pieces for the Boston Marathon this year? I didn't see anything in the Boston stores, have you seen/heard anything?

Anonymous said...

Love my black swifties!! Quickest tag removal recently! Anyone see the aquamarine love tee in person? Is it a pretty saturated color or washed out? Thanks!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 7:16 am - No, the pocket is not wide enough and it's too shallow.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 7:31 am - It might be a little looser but it seemed like it fit like the super soft ones do -they seem to be extra stretchy.

Rise and Shine said...

Speaking of Swiftly tanks, has anyone ordered the lilac from the website? The pictures have been changed, so that it no longer appears to have the subtle stripes. I liked the stripes, so I'm wondering if I order the tank, will I get stripes or no? Thanks!

The align crops look just like the align pants. I wonder what the difference in inseam is???? weird.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 10:47 am - I thought the same thing when I saw the photos.

stylistadiva1 said...

Will an iphone6 fit in the back zip pocket of the Real Quick Tights?

LuluAddict said...

@stylistadiva1 - it does not. A 5S will.

If lulu released blurry belle speed tights I would hand over a major organ for a pair
