Australian Spoilers




New pattern called Down Pour in Electric Coral in Pace Rivals, High Times, and Energy Bra. My wallet is safe.



Pretty new color called Electric Coral. I would love a real CRB in this. Isn't it about time to throw in the towel on the CRB II? Bring back the original CRB! Shown in a Beat the Heat Bra and Fast Lane Singlet. I'd much rather have more Wild and Free tanks than the Fast Lane. I bought every color in the Wild and Free, including a back up in black. Love, love, love that tank!

Lush Coral Swiftly Tank.



Run with the Sun Tights in Iced Wave. Iced Wave is a decent print but I already have bottoms in the very similar Nami Wave.


New print called Shatter Weave in Trackers and a Run All Day backpack.


These have potential - heathered black Wunder Unders.


So far, my wallet looks pretty safe.

Any idea if the CRB is merely the two, or if it's the Pima cotton one? I've never been a fan of the CRB but the Pima ones I dig a lot. They remind me of the modern racerback which is my fav tank. Hoping for more colors on the Pima side of things, hence the question! 😍

Maybe I'm nuts but I believe we've had Electric Coral before. I feel like it was the first or one of the first Free To Be Wild Bra colors. Are you sure that's the name? First thing that came to mind was Boom Juice for me. Maybe the photo just doesn't represent the color well. Electric Coral is more orange...has more yellow in it.

On your rec LLA, I'll try the Wild and Free. I prefer luxtreme to luon in tops and bottoms.

Agree the CRB II needs to be killed off quickly. Just give us the original CRB back.

Electric coral looks very similar to Boom Juice.
I agree about the CRB II. I find it interesting I've tried to post 2 reviews of the CRB II and neither has been accepted. (I am a huge CRB fan, but they lost me on the II)

Excited for the Beat the Heat bra - the only bra that's ever worked for me!!

Fully agree with you LLA, the CRBii needs to go and they need to bring back the CRB original. Electric Coral is a very pretty colour. And that is all. I do not find any of the clothing pieces appealing. Very easy pass on all of it; even the heathered black WU, although I guess it's good to see some sort of staple.

i like all the coral!! Maybe I'm just desperate for any color LOL but I genuinely really love pretty colors like grapefruit and flashlight even though they don't prove to be terribly popular with others they look great on me.

Yup, Electric Coral is a repeat! We last saw it in Summer 2015. I have a RSYB and FTBW in EC, and there were also speed shorts and pace rival skirts. This is the time of year when I get jealous of the Australians for all the great summer items that they are getting.

I have the electric coral FTBW, it is bright! Like blindingly bright. There was a var city bra in that color too. I feel like these pics are very misleading if it's the same color.

I thought we saw Electric Coral a couple of years ago? I even have City skirt in it

From the banner photo of the electric coral bra it looks quite orange. The stock photos do look very similar to boom juice but I would bet that the banner picture is way more accurate to the real color. Still nothing screaming my name, waiting patiently for the olive lace wup/inspire to hit WMTM, patience definitely paid off for the multi bloom so hoping for the same with the lace!

Ok, now that you guys mention it I think I seem to remember Electric Coral. Maybe it didn't come in too many items? It's the type of color I'd love a CRB or Energy Bra in. I know I don't own anything in it right now.

Yup electric coral was neon ...I ended up getting a heathered short sleeve swiftly in the colour as I didn't like the neon tone. So I can't see buying any pieces in that colour but I do like the other coral colour they got.

I have electric coral speeds. The bra and singlet are lush coral though, and I believe that IS a new color. Looks awfully similar to Boom Juice though.

Down Pour looks a little too old school

I also own an Electrical Coral FTWB. it's very bright. definitely orange and not pink.

Looking at everything again, and I noticed that only the down pour pattern items are electric coral, the solid items are all lush coral. Also looked at the UK upload, and they have brought back black cherry and plum. Why in the world would they release two super similar colors at once? That's so annoying since you can't coordinate them at all since they are too similar but just different enough that it looks weird. Also noticed a new "nocturnal teal" that looks just a shade darker than forage teal.

So I KNOW I'm in the minority here - but I was out and about on Sunday and it was unseasonably hot, so I stopped in to a Lulu store (how convenient there was one nearby!) and picked up the CRB II in Pima - and I absolutely love it. I'm short and this fits me far better than the old CRB - and though the fabric was kind of thin, I am surprised by how much I like it. I didn't even look at any of the regular CRB IIs - so I can't comment on them - but if the Pima eventually comes in actual colors instead of only black/white/grey, I'll be buying!

GratefulMama said...

Yeah I'm not crazy about that color but i hope they release it in more colors or prints. I have both black and white and they're the first thing I reach for after washing.

I have an Electric Coral Swiftly Short Sleeve (it has a kind of triangle type pattern allover) that I love. I really love all kinds of coral and peachy pink/pinky peach, reddish orangeish/orangeish reddish kind of colours - Boom Juice, Flash Light, Grapefruit are a few of my very favourite colours, Very Light Flare, Pop Orange, Bon Bon, Pink Lemonade, Atomic Red, Cape Red, Alarming, Fireside Red, etc are all really nice too. Looking forward to Lush Coral! I see UK has a CRBII and a headband in Lush Coral that I really hope comes to Canada upload too! Speaking Of CRBs, I actually like the new CRBII, love it even more than original CRB except for the extra skinny back part(wish they kept that part thicker), and not sure about the edging around neckline and armholes(just not sure it will keep it's shape over time or look all crumpled up and wrinkly with lots of wash and wear?).

@ anon 8:10 am - I know! When I saw it I thought of the Danskin or Marika stuff I used to buy ages and ages ago. I mean ancient and very big box store-tier. Nothing that makes you turn your head and check it out if you saw it at the gym.

We have totally seen electric coral. I have a FTBW from about 1.5 years ago in this color.

Pound said...

It looks a lot like coloured version of "scratch match" from a few years ago.

yup agreed electric coral is not a new color, it reminds me of boom juice, flare, grapefruit and etc.
Lulu just keeps churning the same old colors over and over.
I remember flare was a terrible bleeder, I still have a pair of hot yoga shorts in flare that to this day bleed like crazy.
