Even though it is a steep $ 128.00??? Would love to hear your feedback on it even more once you see it in person or something. Thank you, in advance LLA! Thank you, to others as well on your feedback about it. The colour is extremely tempting however, the price, I was like, "WHOAAA!!!"
There is no description on the website. What justifies $128? Are they just a wunder under luxtreme tight with a zipper picket?
I'm tempted by these leggings, so tempted that pending reviews I will bite the bullet and purchase at full price.The print is gorgeous!
They are $128 because the print is digitally engineered by Lululemon
They are sold out again in all but three sizes. I wonder if mine will ship.
What colours can you pair with this other than white ..maybe bleached coral ..sea mist
I always wonder if when something isn't selling well like they think it should, if they make the website look like it's sold out. That way, when it comes back in stock, people think "Hey! Everyone is buying this!! I have to have it!" and their sales surge. I also think that the "glitches" of cheaper prices on random products on the Canadian side is a ruse too! I think they are doing that because then people will stay on their site longer, click on things more to see if things are on a "hidden sale", and they get their stats up. Just my two cents.
Re the Deep Sea Speed Wunder Tight Digitally engineered is a fancy name for a placed print. Meaning the pattern is specifically engineered so that it appears in only one interpretation on the pant vs random placement (stripes that don't match up or prints that have too much of something on the butt on one pant, and then too much of that same thing on the thigh on another - that causes us to have to look thru several pairs of pants to find the best print placement available...a pain in the butt and you may never find a decent pair). Not sure if that helps.That being said, there can be a lot of wastage involved in an engineered/placed print, depending on the size of the repeat, which appears pretty big in this pant. My guess is that is why the pant is $128. I like the pant a lot. I bought it.
@ anon 9:15 pm - Thanks! That makes a lot of sense, re: placed print, since the light portions show up in the same spot in all the photos and is the selling point on the pants.@ anon 7:59 pm - I don't think so. When sizes flake out like this it typically means they had a lot of demand on it. I can see thing re-appearing overnight if credit cards get denied or something like that. It's weird, the US is now sold out in every size but the 10 now but only size 12 is gone in Canada.
@ anon 9:15 pm - What did you think of the opacity of the pants? I am reading conflicting opinions but I've yet to see much revealed in any bend tests.
And now those tights are fully stocked again this morning. So weird. I am baffled as to what is going on wrt to stocking this item on the website.
@anon 7:59PM I agree with what you said. I totally see Lulu pulling such a sneaky move on us. I don't trust them as a company. I like some of their products but I don't trust the company to do the right things.
The print is cute but not that special. I'm not interested because I prefer Luon bottoms and bottoms without a zipper aw well as a cheaper price. I can't imagine how a zipper in yoga pants would be comfortable.
I agree anon 7:59 PM! I have seen items disappear and then reappear and this seems to happen quite often and it always seemed sneaky to me... and like anon 8:18AM mentioned, I can totally see them them pulling this kind of sneaky move, I dont trust the company either, sometimes it really seems like they enjoy playing games with their customers.
LLA from anon@9:15Re the Deep Sea Speed Wunder Tight I wore them today and loved them. They are of course printed on white so when stretched to the max, you will see some grin through (a decrease in color strength of printed textiles caused by a stretching of the substrate, resulting in the unprinted fibers showing though the printed image.). I do not feel they are sheer at all.
@ anon 8:34 pm - I tried them on today and really liked them. I liked the fact they are very matte compared to most of lululemon's full on luxtreme prints. The price tag had a sticker on it and I've heard the original price was $148. The manager at my store made sure to tell me they were digitally printed so they had the pattern in the same place. I am psyched to get mine tomorrow. I had a Clear Mint Swiftly on when I went to the store and they look nice with that. Pipe Dream blue also looks super nice with them.
I would not pay that kind of cash for a pair of tights. Sweaty Betty charges around $125.oo for their tights and capris, I guess lulu feels it's the going price for nylon pants.That print is OK but I have seen similar designs from Liquido active,teeki onzie and a few others for around $80M
