On the Fly Shorts, Smooth Stride Tank, and More

Sole Training LS and On the Fly Shorts. I wasn't a fan of these shorts today, though they look nice on this girl. They look better with the elastic waistband covered up and I wish they were made of luon instead of thick full on luxtreme, which is rather thick and stiff.

The mesh detail at the bottom of the Smooth Stride Tank is attached with stiff and un-stretchy bonding which made it catch on my hips. I didn't care for it and the tanks I ordered yesterday will be going back. Other than that, I thought the fit was a roomy TTS.

I did like the Dark Olive Smooth Stride LS a lot but found it a little on the short side. The main thing holding me back from getting it was that I really don't have any bottoms to wear with that color. The fit was nicely roomy around the mid-section, though. I'd consider it on a nice markdown.

Effortless Jacket and Out to Lunge Tight Untights. I tried these same pants on today. The luon is very thick. I'd think about these on a nice markdown.

agree on both points...the mesh at the hem of the Smooth Stride Tank is a bit hard/stiff for my liking...other than that i like the style a lot. The Smooth Stride L/S is a tad too short. I'd consider it on md. I prefer light luxtreme tops b/c the keep me cooler and typically don't cling or pill as much as luon.

I'd like to see those lunge tights styled as street clothes, wondering if they could be worn to work.

I ordered On The Fly shorts in black yesterday with 21% off, very excited to try them on

Off topic but do you know if the iPhone 7Plus fits into the thigh pocket of the Pace Rival crops? Thinking about purchasing one with a thin case but wanted to check.

Agreed! I wonder the same thing. But the photos look like there is a visible reflective logo at the knee, which would make them less work-worthy for me, unfortunately.

I cant help but feel that LLL is just scrimping on fabric, ie: the short hems and the never ending mesh. I like the LS tops, but I like them to at least sort of cover my crotch so I can run into the grocery store and not feel like I am showing the goods!!!! I am over 50yrs old and the leggins are not pants is real for me and short crop like tops are not working. I have gone months without buying anything from LLL, from where I was buying $100s every week.

Hi LLA! Are the Out to Lunge Tight tts?

@ anon 11:56 am - Yes, I would say so. Sorry, I forgot to add that.

@ anon 3:43 pm - I swear the pockets have gotten a little smaller on the Pace Rivals but I can fit my 6s+ in the thigh pocket if I take it out the case. The dimensions on the &s and 6s are the same.

@ anon 8:18 am - For sure! They are cost cutting across the board when it comes to adding functionality, details, and length. Sleeve lengths seem to be getting shorter. Jackets routinely used to have in interior luxtreme cuffs but now are ended with an elastic cuff of the exterior material, which looks super cheap imo. The whole brand is being cheapened. Day cheapened the brand using thin fabrics but Potdevin is going for plain easy-to-manufacture styles, fewer features, a scaled back color palette,fewer fabrics. It's depressing as hell to observe. I paid the high price because of lululemon's value - durability, functionality, versatility, style - but they've pretty much gutted the brand at this point as far as I'm concerned.
