Am I not seeing the logo on my small phone screen? Not a fan of the patterns but they do look supportive.
i LOVE that black and white print! If that comes to fruition, that will be an expensive week for me.
@ anon 5:45 am - I had trouble seeing it, too, bit it's in the middle of the back.
Someone should alert LLL, this is not right. I think this seller is an employee.
I wonder if they are one of the factory workers and they give them a chance to purchase at a discount. There's a couple of these sellers and the items come from Indonesia but are genuine lulu. Hmmmm
@LuluAddict what was the auction site? could you post a link to the products? Im interested in knowing how the prints have been released early..thanks!!
These look like fakes... There is something odd about the logo in the top picture (and something "feels" odd about the whole design). We'll see if they are real or not in a couple of weeks, then LLL releases the style (if it does at all). Watch out for Lulu fakes though! I've seen many, many, many, particularly in my trips to South East Asia.
@ anon 7:59 am - I believe they are "falling off the assembly line"
@anon 10:18 am - the most famous auction site in the US, lol. Also, do a search for align tights and the seller is selling them for $71.99.
if these are real then all I can say is that after a while they (the bras) all look the same. like all creativity is gone.
IF these are legit, I wonder if they will offer more coverage than the beautiful Splendor Bra, which I loved but could not wear due to ridiculous cleavage exposure.
I would wait until they are on the lulu site. I don't think the people who work at the sweatshops would be allowed to take or get anything at a discount. Not only that, but sweatshops constantly supervise the workers, if you get caught stealing you are seriously punished. Do they have the names of these bras?and the names of the patterns?M
They could be fakes/second quality made with the same material, or even in the same factory. I hope for LLL's sake that second one is just a knockoff.
I like the black & white print. Agree potentially falling off the assembly line but also agree workers get inspected. However, I also knew someone who talked of their friend knowing how to beat the system: where there is a will, there is a way. Someone makes it worth their while. Although, wasn't this the case before with a bunch of Rack Pack bras? Did those patterns ever materialize on the LLL site? I remember the post but didn't keep track as that's not a bra I wear.
I'm always curious when I see a bunch of items listed on the "biggest auction site" at the same price or even lower than LLL. And they are not WMTM items. I understand when somebody just selling one piece of clothing below the store price if they just don't want to deal with returns or beyond the return window. But multiples? How does that work after paying all the fees to the "biggest auction site "?
I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch for 6 years back in its "glory days" when it was THE brand to be wearing. I was the stockroom manager for the last 4 years and it was my job to scan in shipment. In that time, I reported 3 different drivers (they also used FedEx) because I finally caught onto the fact that the scanner number of boxes wouldn't match what they told me was the box count for deliveries. I can imagine a lot of stores overlook this very easily. The drivers were getting Victoria's Secret good with keeping boxes too. Literally stealing a box or two every day of delivery and doing god knows what with it. It was a common thing and I am sure it still happens very often....
Yes, the same thing happened with the rack pack bras! I remember there being a Jungle Green one and a few other colours and I just noticed the Jungle Green one on WMTM today!
@ anon 6:36 pm - those rack pack bras were from the same seller. They had them a week or two before the stores did.
Would love to hear your review of the hot wave when you get it!
@lululover - I know. This person is different since they have new stuff before the stores and website does but there is one seller I've wondered about for years who has store stuff for the same or lower than retail. I still haven't solved her mystery. I believe she has been reported to lululemon and she is still around so not sure what the story is there.
how about the camo jackets that bunch of ladies bought from a UK seller before they were officially released? I can't remember the jacket name. it cam out last summer I think.
@ anon 9:06 am - right, I remember that now that you mention that. Were the jackets released at the time in the UK? I can't remember now. Sometimes partner studio stores get things way before regular stores but I haven't heard of these bras being spotted anywhere else.
Oh so those rack packs were legit! Now I read more of this thread and more interesting, even that this seller has been reported to LLL and is still active. Something is unusual there. I mean, you had the period of time with LLL policing/reporting to the biggest site, Kijiji and the like for regular folks doing resale of one or two items and having those sites block or take down the ads. And this person is still active? And holy, the FedEx angle. Where there's a will...just like the friend of a friend told me. And that was high end shoes. Anon 6:36PM
That blue pattern is seriously ugly. For our sake, I hope that one's a fake!
