I got to try on the Trapeze Twist in the proper size today and liked it much better than yesterday, though the armpits gape a bit on me in the front. I think I will wait for the Black Grape and Boom Juice versions to make their way here. Also shown in these photos are the Rise and Run Bra and Rosewood Run with the Sun crops.

The Fatigue Pop Cut Festival Bag is in US stores. I wasn't wowed by this in the website photos but it is super sharp in real life. I am sorely tempted to get one but I bought two bag this month and really don't 'need' this one.








Lululemon at the Rio Olympics

Thanks to Ms. R. for spotting this Fortune article about Lululemon making the uniforms for the Canadian and one of the US men's 2016 Olympic volleyball teams (Jake Gibb/Casey Patterson, both Elite lululemon ambassadors) and a few other Olympic athletes. Lululemon outfitted one of the men's US volleyball team at the 2012 Olympics, too, but I've got to say I like the 2016 graphics even better.

Replicas of the Canadian team's gear will be available in Canadian stores but it doesn't sound like the US outfits will hit US stores. They should put it on the website.


“I think it is smart of Lululemon to have a presence at the Games,” Powell [a sports industry analyst] said. “It enhances their athletic credibility.”

What's funny is that analysts think lululemon isn't respected by Olympic athletes, yet when you watch background pieces on various athletes at the games you'll often see them wearing lululemon for practices and lounging around. So the brand is respected by athletes, they just aren't paid to wear it like with bigger brands Nike, UA, and Adidas.
