Buckets of Fun Bag next to my Diversity Bag. The sizes are very similar. The cinch stays closed but I didn't see a water bottle pocket in the bag. I liked it but I can live without it.

True Red Fast As Light Tank and Circuit Breaker Skirt. True Red looked pretty close to Love Red to me. I need to remember to get a comparison of the two. I tried this tank on today and really liked it.  The mesh wasn't as see through as I thought. The bra was like a more supportive Energy Bra and the tank is very breathable. My only nit was the chest in the outer shell was a bit small for me. If the tank comes in a compelling color or print I might get it.

Hey LLA! I just checked WMTM... Holly Molly... A LOT of items... including some really current ones.

By the way I love the new colour Greyvy. I tried on the Fast As Light as well and I normally am a size 8 in tanks with built-in bras but the size 8 tank was too big all over except the bra. The size 6 tanka fit fine but the bra band did not sit below my breasts (34B). When I pulled the bra band down where it should be the neckline and armholes came down too low. I agree LLA that the mesh was not really an issue as the bra underneath is the same colour so you only see a couple of inches below the bra that is sheer. I really like the cut of the tank and wished it had been made with a built in bra.

I also tried on the Run For Daze jacket and just like the original version I did not like the fit of this one either. The price tag is rather steep so I expect certain details which this jacket was lacking. You can't stow the hood, no thumbholes, no lining and unlike the first one this one is not reversible, which is not a feature I need. I like the look of this jacket from the back but the front looks goofy because it balloons out from the cinched waist even when the waist cinch is not used. They got rid of the puffy sleeve midway down the arm but the sleeve length was too long on me.

If I remember correctly, Love Red was more of an orange red? I ordered some Dance Studio Crops in Love Red (almost four years ago now) and was disappointed to see that they were more of an orange red than a nice true red in person. Still have them but never wore them, not even once! (Too bright and orange red for my liking for crops). Funny that this new red is called True Red if it's a lot like Love Red.

Beautiful photos. I always love the photos taken outdoors in nature. As for the product featured, I can pass on everything. The purples are pretty, but I don't need anything.

Does anybody know if the length of the Circuit Breaker skirt is comparable to the old Pace Setter skirt? I really regret not buying a plain black Pace Setter when I had the chance, but the Circuit Breaker looks super short inn these pictures. I'm pretty petite but used to buy the Pace Setters in Tall for a bit of extra thigh coverage. Still kicking myself since I haven't liked any of the subsequent skirts nearly as much.

the swiftly all bunched up around the waist does not look too good! Always bugs me and looks messy/wrong somehow! I usually see this on very young girls I think it goes w/ the trend of high waisted pants and crop tops look........ does nothing for their figures since most of them are not model thin either. A trend that should go away imo!

Have they shortened the swiftlies? It looks really short on this eds torso?

Sweat size did you try in the fast as light tank? My tts in most tops is a 6, but I wear an 8 in bras, so unsure of which size to order. Thanks LLA!

*what size, not sweat size. Auto correct fail.

Just scored a lace CRB in bali breeze on WMTM for $34. I sized up because a lot of people said the lace made it fit tighter than a regular CRB. Hope it fits!

@ anon 7:32 am - I would order your regular sports bra size.

@ anon 7:29 am - they haven't. I think she has hers tucked up around her waist for some reason, maybe to show off the waistband of the crops.

@ anon 5:54am - Yes, Love is an orange-y red. I think True Red has a bit of an orange vibe to it, definitely not a blue undertone, like Currant.

@ ilovemytoothbrush - I know! I bought another Lace CRB since I liked my other one so much.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:39 am - I think some people like the new fit better - slightly higher neck, less material around the waist and it's a bit shorter but the majority like the original. Personally, I like the original better but I really like the hounds camo print. When they were trying to replace the CRB with the Studio Racerback I bought a few of those in colors I liked. I actually like the SRB quite a bit. I don't think the CRBII is terrible enough to shun it, but maybe I'll change my mind after I wear it and the thick stitching at the back of my neck bugs me.

I'm not going to rail too much about the prices going up. It seems to be a fact of life and all I can do is be more selective in my purchases. It sucks but I wasn't a lot of all the items where the prices went up anyway - I have a ton of Trackers, Energy bras, Swiftlys, etc. and wait until WMTM to get extras.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:25 am - I know but I've been wearing the Strap It Like It's Hot and Energy Bras under my CRBs so the straps show anyway.

I don't really know why they decided to change the CRB. I think it was a perfectly designed top as it was. I mean, I can see bringing out a top like the CRBII - a light luon top with a very skinny racerback - but calling it something else. I'm sure if the CRBII sales don't take off they'll go back to the original design.

The pace CRBs are on WMTM This morning. Is that new? Anyway picked up a couple they are really cute.

Olympic gear is on Can website!

LLA For all the fans of the original CRB I hope you are right but I think that may be wishful thinking. The Dance Studio Crop has not been brought back even though the Studio Crop ll are not as popular nor were the In Flux. They don't want competition for their new designs so as with many other classics I think the writing is on the wall for the CRB.

I think the Circuit Breaker looks ridiculously too short. I did a online chat yesterday about the lengths. The Circuit Breaker red is 11" (yup, she said she was actually measuring one) and the tall she said is 13".

Having been through this skirt length things a gazillion times, I have the Pace Setter specs:

Pacesetter Tall (the silhouette I usually buy) has:
front length: 13 3/4"
back length: 14 3/4"

Pacesetter Regular has:
front length: 12 1/4"
back length: 13 1/4"

Anon @ 6:55

Then buy the Circuit Breaker skirt in a Tall length and you should be good. I think the skirt is adorable and a good change. I loved both the pacesetter and pace rival. I feel like the new skirt is a nice blend of both. Modern looking but still a fun skirt to run in.

@LuluAddict -- did you size up for the lace CRB? I would love to snag a few from WMTM!
