Isn't this giving you all nightmares? ;-)   (photo: www.yoga-lounge.at)

Shown in these photos is the Twist and Toil Tank with True Self Crops and the new Tofino Teal Hotwae Tank with Foil Manifesto Wunder Unders. 

For some reason I find photos of aerial yoga disturbing, particularly when the people are enveloped by the hammock and all you see is a lumpy tear drop hanging from the ceiling. They always take me aback when they come across my feed and I am reminded of scary sci fi alien movies with the pods of larvae aliens.

Tried on the foil manifesto wunder unders in store. I LOVED the pattern and the color so much. I was so upset when I turned around, they were, not just a little see through, but like SEE THROUGH...just standing completely upright. I went up a size to see if it would make a difference and it didn't. I'm 5'8", 140lbs, athletic build. I think maybe if I didn't have a butt they might have worked out lol.

@Brittany - I have no bum and they were sheer on me, too. It's not you, it's Lulu. You're perfect just the way you are. :)

I just browsed LLL and got to the new site. I hate the looks of the clothes and am not at all inspired to buy anything or even browse the site. OMG. They will lose a lot of my business just because it looks so awful and uninspiring.

I agree the photos are weird. I am annoyed, just called GEC to track down a deep zinfandel CRB in the US. She told me that was a fall color code so they were sold out. I looked up the SKU online called back got someone else and they tracked down two for me. Why does customer service vary so much between different stores and even different employees? Glad to have got one, but have had the same experience tracking down two other popular items this month.

anon 10:23 I got to the new site today too and I have to agree with you. The way they display the products not on a model as the main picture really turned me off. For the most part the rest of the site is fine by me, but I find all of the pictures of the products look like cartoons, over digitalized. It reminded me of what I see on some "discount" sites, not something you'd expect from Lulu. Maybe I just don't like change all that much, but something about this really disappointed me. Hopefully they'll take the feedback they get into consideration.

Speaking of foli manifesto WUC. I tried my size up at the store today. And when I pointed out how I could see my white underwear the educator GUY dared to ask me if I plan to wear them with underwear on. He said it would be better without. And the the girl educator said she wears hers without underwear and then there is no problem of sheerness. I thought this must be a joke or something. Hell yeah, I'm gonna wear underwear. Then they said that nude color thong also would work OK. Do I really need pants for a 100 bucks and have to put so much thought into how to wear them? No. I want lululemon to make good quality pants if they want to charge that mind of money.

My husband had similar experience recently when he was returning new CRB in cadet blue Luxtreme for me. For some weird reason it said final sale on the receipt and he had no clue it was a brand new item. They gave him a bunch of c** , but finally refunded. He felt like I set him up! Lol He is a guy, he doesn't know what got uploaded and what went on wmtm, but shouldn't LLL employees know better??

Lululover said...

I agree, looks disturbing !
Ps after looking at these pictures I cave and called Seattle store to order a pair of Free Spirit pants in white.

Hi LLA, if you have the time, could you possibly do a quick review on the Run All Day Backpack once you receive it? I'm on the fence about getting one and do not live near a store so would have to order online. TIA! Your blog is my go to for info, reviews and all stuff lulu! Thanks for all you do :)

Any fit reports yet on the hotwave tank? This may actually work for me as a 105F replacement, but I'm not sure whether I should size down. (I was really not a fan of the slit in the back of Salute the Sun, esp. version II, which just reminded me of lady parts...)

you guys are funny regarding the pods hanging from the ceiling. I have tried being in one of those pods and they are so comfy and relaxing so I have a totally different feeling when I see those.

Talking of see through I saw a girl at my gym wearing lulu bottoms they were dark blue and you could see her g string and she was standing in a semi light room, if I had been one of her friends I would have said something to her. She was chatting away with some dudes like all was ay OK

Can anyone comment on the principle tank? Older reviews did not make it seem very appealing, does the tencel truly not stretch whatsoever??

@Anon 2:37 -- I stuck with my TTS in the Hotwave Tank. IMO, it fits very similar to the Salute the Sun II but is a little higher cut in the front which is nice and doesn't have the gaping slit in the back. I ended up bringing the heathered rosewood and the heathered tofino teal home with me from the store on Monday.

@ anon 2:46 pm - I refuse to buy anything made of tencel. It wrinkles like a mofo. This post also has a photo of what Tencel looks like when you sweat - scroll down a little.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 2:31 pm - Sure! I'll post some photos of the pockets and comparative size to some of my other bags. I am also wondering if I can cram my macbook in it but I really doubt it. I've seen it at SeaWeeze and it's pretty tiny.

LuluAddict said...

@reya - mine are coming on Saturday. Crossing fingers I get the right size. There have been some issues with size 4 Speed orders getting Size 6 instead. Though, I am hearing lululemon is sending out the right shorts to those people.

Brittany Dickinson said...

Thank you...I hope they work out for someone!

LLA, did you keep your true self crop in grey? I love my black true self crop and consider calling around for the grey. I would love to get your input before pulling the trigger.

Alyssa Jobs said...

I tried the hot wave tank. I really like it, I had to size down from 6 to 4. Very light, great for very hot weather. LuluAddict, thanks for your reply on my question about the Sunset Savanna. I decided to get it, no regrets. It's so comfortable and beautiful!

I just tried this on in store yesterday. It was not as loose as 105F tank, which I did size down in. The hot wave tank I actually debated sizing up! It didn't fit me that great, I found that the straps needed to be about an inch shorter as it bunched above the bust and if I pulled it forward it was way too low cut, then if I pulled it from behind it bunched where the back rouching was. I didn't bother sizing up but I imagine it may have laid better then...

No judgement on being in the yoga pods but yes, they do look creepy like that.

@Anon 2:13, totally agree, I'm an underwear girl, not commando (ick) and in white? lol lol wow asking for a whole lot of trouble/attention. Um you can see stuff, educator! Not even trying to look, have to avert my eyes, avert my eyes!

And no, one should not have to buy special undies but I do like Victoria's Secret seamless low rise cheeky undies (they look similar to those Zhoba ones). No VPL. I personally dislike thongs.

Agree with you LLA about the photos! For me, I just keep thinking... What if the fabric lets go?? Eek!! It's the same reason I cringed watching the amazing cirque du soleil. Lol, while everyone was enjoying it my friend and I were gasping everytime someone did something dangerous (which was the whole show !). Lol, but good for them and their flexibility!

@purrfiktangil - Thanks! That's really helpful!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:11pm - I did. They're so soft I couldn't return them. I am just waiting for a chance to wear them.

LuluAddict said...

@Alyssa - do you have any Salute the Sun Singlet iis? They are my new favorite seriously light luon tanks. I am wondering how the Hotwave compares to that. Mine comes tomorrow.

I wish they would stop making tanks that go down to the nipple. It's not flattering in anyone.
