I really like these because I am a pink obsessive, however I got them in the wunder under normal rise and every time I move in them they roll down. Why didn't they make them in high rise! I am wondering if these ones will come up any higher?
Easy pass and those bonded seams. Nope.
The bonded seams are a giant NO for me. Can you imagine being several miles (or even one mile) into a run and have the a$$ rip out?! No thanks. Talk about cutting major corners and then charging as if they are top quality.
It looks like they're putting the cheap plastic zippers on the pants too :(
Twice in a matter of months, Lulu has charged me & sent me a package without an item that they claimed to have shipped. I swore I would never order on line again after the ordeal it was to get a refund last time. Silly me. I ordered the run for the cold pullover in a black size 6 except it was not in my package. When I called, I got the same run around I got last time: the jacket was sold out; they couldn't ship me a new one; they had to get back to me in several days about my refund, etc. The last time it took multiple calls & several weeks & a few preposterous stories before I got my refund. Oddly, tonight a black jacket size 6 showed up on line but when I tried to snag it, it was sold out. I think they resold the jacket they never shipped me. That's it for me. I can get good customer service elsewhere.
I like the look of them. And the omega shape on the bum.
Sorry to sound ignorant, but what are the bonded seams? How does this differ from the other seams? TIA! :)
They sent me the wrong item - it was a recent energy bra that I really wanted to go with the matching pants, but they sent me the right material but wrong bra. So I wrote back to say what had happened and could I be sent the energy bra please and they said someone was on it and I needed to send the wrong bra back. However it was sold out so when I asked them about getting a replacement they said I should wait and see if it gets uploaded again. Which is unlikely as I am a 12 and they make about six size 12s in everything and once it's gone it's gone.
Ugh! Just in comparison- the same thing happened to me with another company. I had multiple items in my order, but was missing a pair of leggings that were on the order. I sent a quick email, and within a day received a response that said even though the records said they shipped, they were so sorry and were sending another pair with expedited shipping free of charge. Two days later they were at my house. The experiences with other companies make me realize how bad customer service is at LLL. It makes me twice as likely to buy when I know that the company will stand by any mistakes they make. Just felt so frustrated for you while reading about this experience!
Lol, HATE the Omega lulu symbol on the but. It's like a giant, flashing sign. And even if you have a nice looking rear, the big clunky symbol makes the pant unattractive. Just my opinion.
@ GiselaPNormally workout wear is sewn with a flat seam to eliminate chafing using thread. Bonded seams - think of glue. They use a special process to heat bond 2 pieces together so there isn't a sewn seam using thread. However, bonded seams don't have a great history as far as longetivity and other times Lulu used this there were issues with them coming apart. They (Lulu) is saying its to eliminate chafing but i've never chafed with flat seaming and, IMO, its a cost cutting measure.I would never trust a bonded seam to take me 20 miles running so I will never buy running gear with bonded seams. It's also stiff and I don't like the feel of them. They irritate me more actually.
WMTM just uploaded tons of the original crb colors and sizes!
More original CRB colors and restock uploaded to WMTM
Bonded seams are glued
There is no appeal in this print for me personally. I haven't liked any of their prints in the last year, minimum. Throw in bonded seams and they get an even bigger "no thank you," even if I was slightly interested in the print. Bonded seams are the most dramatic cheapening of quality so far. There is no more flattering design, that's for sure. Now they have gone and released so many nice CRBs (original) on wmtm US while Canada was not offered these at all (hello, Canadian company). This shows quite the deep-seated greed of the CEO. In addition to all the other bad moves, it is very telling. Kind of the last I need to know to finally stop shopping here.
@ anon 7:33 pm - I was thinking the same thing about the WMTM CRBs - they released them to the US because our dollar is stronger.
@ anon 1:42 pm - I was traveling all day today but a friend messaged me so I bought 4 of the new CRB colors, in addition to the Jet Set one I got the other day. I'm hoping none of them are luxtreme.
Picked up 3 original CRB's on WMTM this am.
What the heck! Just got my CRB's (original style) from the WMTM Christmas upload. SO CHEAPLY MADE! And they are all Luxtreme. :( Super thin, shows every lump and bump. And the hems and seams are stitched like a high school home ec project. I'm beyond disappointed. The website clearly stated they were luon. I just checked. SO heads up to everyone. Buyer beware!
Okay so Im not sure if these are the same but I had a pair of pants from lulu that were SUPER similar to these back in early 2013. I am a crossfitter so my lulus usually get put through hell and I dont ever remember mine giving me trouble. Still probably wont buy the On Track, the quality just isnt like it use to be. Here is a link to the pants im talking about- https://www.instagram.com/p/cNkXvgCEL1/
@ anon 5:34 am - Oh no! I ordered 5 of them. What colors did you order?
I received my three CRBs from the original WMTM upload and they're fine. Two are luxtreme, but that doesn't bother me. I ordered three more from the second batch uploaded. I wish I could've gotten more colors (I missed some of the ones I really wanted).
What colors did you get?
I'm also liking Omega on the butt
I read on Lulumum that Gator Green and Naval Blue are luxtreme. Bordeaux and the Snake print are luon. Some people said they brought them to the store and explained about the website saying luon, and got store credit or their money back. Just a heads up that it's possible to return. Anxiously awaiting the 6 *eek* I ordered. If one is luxtreme I'll deal, if all are, I will flip.
Has anyone received their Jet set blue CRB? I hope it is Luon.
Kayak blue, gator green, and Pom pink (not listed anymore). Good luck! I hear butter pink is luon.
@luluaddict 7:07 pm- edit to correct. I just rechecked. The luxtreme tanks were kayak blue, gator green and i was mistaken. It wasn't Pom pink, it was Bon Bon, and I rechecked it that one is actually light luon! My bad. Guess I was so disappointed with the other 2...The luxtreme are definitely a size up tank for me. Getting ready to wear the kayak blue and my new WMTM outrun crops to Orange Theory. Will give a performance update later.
Received my CRBs in jet set blue (light luon) and gator green (luxtreme) in the mail today. No stitching issues. Not sure if I will keep the gator green though.
I contacted lulu after getting several WMTM CRB's in luxtreme. they refunded me the price and told me to just keep them.
They bond the fabric together with an adhesive glue instead of sewing an actual seam. LLL also won't repair the item when the bonded seams come apart.
When is your best and worse year in review coming out luluaddict?
Ugh I hope not all the CRBs are cheap remakes. I also ordered 5. I got the desert snake deep coal in the mail yesterday and don't like it. Very polyestery, sheeny. I really hope the solids aren't like that.
Other people have received their orders - Jet Set, Sprinkler, Iris Flower, and Peacock are light luon - yay! I ordered those so I'm happy.
I ordered 9 colors and the two that arrived Luxtreme were Naval Blue and Gator Green
Performance update. Wore my WMTM outrun crops to Orange Theory yesterday. The mesh detail on the inner thigh comes up so high that I was concerned that my thigh rub would start to tear at the seams! This will be an issue with these otherwise awesome crops. Not sheer in black, fit TTS, and stayed in place the entire workout! No pulling them up! If you have a thigh gap, you'll wear them with no worries. :)
Speak of Fabletics, their pants have been holding up better for me than lulus recently. I used to love Lulu pants but with all the crappy designs and cheap seaming recently I had to find another go to.
