Pure Practice Pants are not for shorties. I'm 5'2" and size 4 and they were sooo long.

Does the Pima material show sweat? Wondering if these tanks can double for cardio or will really only be useful for yoga.

I love the look of both of these tanks, but what do people think about working out in pima cotton and pima modal? Are these best suited to light yoga and not sweatier activities like run and tennis?

These pictures are making me wonder if the yogi everyday is a size up item.

Does anyone know if lulu's Pima cotton shrinks? I am eyeing the yogi racerback iii tank but am between sizes and don't know if I should size down, or stay with TTS and hope it shrinks a little.

Yes! Would love reviews of the yogi everyday and bliss break. Not sure about the cotton. Wish they were 105 material. Are they thicker than the yogi racer?

Also these pics do make them look like they are fitting slim. I'd want them loose. I'm usually an 8 but take 6 in 105s and yogi racer backs. Would this be a 10? (I do take a 10 in some long sleeves but that is mostly on account of big shoulders, muscly arms, and a preference for loose tops). Oh LL your sizing is so aggravating.

Note sure if I think the seam on the side of the bliss.

The lulu pima cotton from my experience, looks reeally beat up and cheap after a few washes. I have a pima cotton tank from a while back that stretched out and pilled, I now use for gardening and painting and cleaning around the house. I would not use it for heavy sweat activities.
The pima cotton does have a nice warm and soft feel to it.

I picked up the yogi everyday tank today at my store. I stayed with my tts & it fits much looser (as it is supposed to) than the girls in this post are wearing. I think the girls in these photos definitely sized down. The pleats in the back are not supposed to be pulling like that.

anon@6:04AM - My two cents...Pima Cotton is cotton. No real technical performance characteristics. I won't even hike in cotton any more. I would not work out in cotton, especially when there are so many great technical fabric alternatives.

I hate feeling sweaty and having a cotton tee or tank moist against my skin. Some people won't work out in anything else. It's a personal thing. Do you want to feel wet and smelly workout or dry and minimal odor?

Laura@436AM - Yes, Pima Cotton shows sweat...same as any cotton.

Anon 9:23, I don't know if this is for all of their pima cotton, however I have 2 shirts that are pima and both stretch out a bit when I wear them, then shrink back to their regular size when I wash them.

@ anon 2:17 pm - I feel the same way - who wants a cotton top for sweating? What is really interesting is this Q&A excerpt from the last quarterly conference call:

Lee Holman, the new creative director on what is coming:

"How different textures, one of the biggest callouts that we are hearing from our ambassadors and our athletes is technical on the bottom and natural on top and we’re really covering that with our new assortment."

Are athletes really calling out for natural tops? I find that hard to believe. However, I do like the two Yogi Racerback tanks I have but I use them for things when I'm outdoors when I can get a lot of air movement and am not sweating a ton. I also bought the two versions in the space dye print since that camouflages wear a lot better than the solids or heathereds.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 1:48 am - I have heard that. You need to be a good 5'4" for them to work.

I would find that hard to believe as well. A few years ago I accidentally bought a cotton CRB ... Before I knew better! It was waaay too hot to work out in, showed sweat, and was awful! For me, I want technical tops to sweat in, the cotton crb I wear casually now : p, not the intended purpose. It makes a HUGE difference!

I actually started running in my old j crew t-shirts. First because I was preggo and they were the only thing that fit. But now I've gotten used to them. They're loose and thin. Of course I wouldn't do a long run I them or wear them to a sweat gym class. But they've become my go to for 4-6 milers outside

I would stick with an 8 in the yogi. I tried it on today. The girls in these pic's sized down

LLA re Lee Holman, the new creative director on what is coming...here comes the pendulum! Buckle up!

To me the beauty of luon tops is that there is a similarity to cotton in look and to some degree feel...but you get the added advantages of 4 way stretch, breathability and sweat wicking.

I could never run in cotton. I sweat like a man. That would be chafe city for me. Cotton is a poor choice for an athletic top (IMHO). I need things that wick, breathe and dry quickly. I can't imagine running in what essentially would be like a wet mop for me.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 7:47 pm - lol. I love my CRBs precisely because I can sweat in them and wear them for casual. It's the main reason I have something like 70 of them. I love lululemon's technical fabrics like silverescent circle mesh and luxtreme so I hope they keep working on that front and this cotton thing is a bid to get people who buy lulu for causal wear. I used to love Vitasea tops like the Every Yogis and Lively Crewneck tees - they have lasted like iron but they are strictly casual for me. When I see people working out in the gym in cotton tees I feel almost sorry for them that they haven't been enlightened on the awesomeness of technical fabrics that breathe and wick sweat.

ah yes, natural tops so boob sweat shows through. Sounds like a man making the decision there.

I hate the feel of cotton on my skin when it's wet, it is so uncomfortable, I sometimes see people running or doing yoga and breaking out into a sweat wearing cotton and it just looks awful.
We now have many tech fabric choices, there is no need to be uncomfortable and sticky in cotton gear.
