Hmm, I was actually tempted by the chilled grape outrun tights, but I'm just not sure I'll feel comfortable with the mesh so high on the inner leg. I'm always self conscious about my meshy bits ;-)
Spray print is very unflattering. Wow.
These days the designs and fabrics just horrid imo.
I agree that print is unflattering.
The circuit breaker bra is very comfortable and though it says light to medium support, it supported a D cup during high impact class.
I tried on the Locarno LS and the Yin time pullover in store and they are PAPER thin; the sheerest items from Lulu I've ever seen. You can see in these photos that they are sheer; but it's even more so in person. The photos on Lulu's website are totally misleading and it makes me wonder how much of the other stuff on the site is digitally altered.
I feel they are ruining such nice jewel toned colors with the designs and patterns.
I love the Chilled Grape. But I'm with the previous commenter on ALL THE MESH. I don't mind a little bit, but I also don't want to run in pantyhose.
OT - Got my outrun crops today. I held my nose re the mesh and bought them for the pockets. I'm pleased that the mesh is a bit darker in person than I thought it would be. (I'm in between sizes and got my bigger size as I usually do with luxtreme so it does not pull as sheer.) I am hesitating to rip the tags off though because the mesh panel goes pretty far up on the inner thigh. I don't really care about this for running, but I also wanted to wear them to the gym and I think it might be a little immodest or flashy for my personal comfort zone. However, I won't really be sure until I wear them to a class and either feel uncomfortable or get irked looking at in the mirror for an hour. Just wondering if anyone who has bought them has feedback this feature. Thanks!
$80 for a shapeless, sheer, not at all special long sleeve T shirt? hahaha, Lulu you're funny.
Spray print doesn't look very good. It's just too distracting on the eyes and is not flattering
I just tried the outrun crops and think I'm sending them back for that reason. I think I would just feel silly wearing them.
$95.00 that includes tax in Ontario for a thin, completely see-through cotton long sleeve shirt. Over my dead body.
@Anon 7:39 AM, completely concur. They can make all the jewel tones they want. However, when they ruin it with a splotchy pattern or some such, I'm not going to buy it and think it's a waste of product.
Love the Chilled Grape color, but won't buy bc of the mesh. I just think mesh is overdone now. And I might like some of the other pants, except for the dark stitching. For me, this accents camel toe issues, and makes my butt shape funny. Yes, I care about things like that. So, easy pass.
Lol, exactly. They take us robots, like we're just gonna buy it cuz there's a Lulu tag on it.
I love both the Yin Time L/S and the Locarno L/S. I overheat super easily so these weights are great for me. Generally speaking, finer yarns are more expensive b/c they are made from longer, stronger strands of fiber. But many people equate weight with value. Regardless, if the weight is too light or material to thin for your personal taste, clearly these items are not going to make you happy.
I kinda like it in the green from far away but up front, not at all. It reminds me of sponge painting my bathroom walls at my first apartment 17 years ago when I was 18 lol. It didn't look good, wasn't in style then or now, but it was something to do, so why not, right lulu?
Anon 8:50pm I would never wear pima cotton if I am going to be sweating as the fabric will stick to my body and the cotton will hold and show the sweat. These are more for casual wear so having such thin see through fabric for casual wear is a no for me as well as the price tag.Anon. 11:52am When I am on the fence and unsure about something I bought I don't usually keep it because it's my gut telling me I am not going to be happy with the purchase and for the price of these crops it would be a shame to not be in love with them.
Did anyone super busty (E or F cup) try the Circuit Breaker bra? if so how's the support. My store doesn't have it so I have to order online but want to make sure it would work for me...
Sorry, but LLL pima is not high quality at all. If you want to spend that amount on thin tees, there are plenty that are legitimately good quality/use high quality yarns and actually wear well as a result. Lulu's are just cheap for the sake of margins.
Is there a reason you never let my comments through? I posted a genuine question yesterday! Many comments since but I've been moderated out.
@Sam - your shopper comment went through. I logged off the web fairly early last night so it didn't get posted until this morning. There are very few I don't let through.
I'm wondering the same thing Shadowy Lady. I'm a 32E and wondering about coverage in front/sides. So far the only bra that I can find that works for me is the 32E Ta Ta Tamer. I do get pushed up out of the top and show a lot of cleavage (but not at the sides and doesn't flatten me) in this one, but otherwise best one for me I've found. I've tried Energy Bra on once but I need the size 4 band size, but then the bust part is way too small (totally flattens and pushes everything up and out at top and sides). Would be really nice to find another bra that works to change things up a bit, even though I love the ta ta tamer.
Totally agree with you about the pima cotton anon 10:48 AM.
please let there be pace rivals or rebel runners in chilled grape! Not a fan of the outrun tights. Also glad I got the CG/black swiftly tank while I was in Vacouver. It's sooooo pretty and hasn't popped up on the US side...
Has anyone bought the Houndstooth Hi Times? I just ordered them, looking fwd to find out about texture!
Anon at 1:01 - the data tamer doesn't work for me :( it goes up to only E cup and I'm closer to a 32F. Large bust small band size is the worst. Hardly any sports bras work for me. The exception was Strap it Like it's Hot.I think I will order this one to try.
