Athleta Tie Salutation Capris and Eyelet Dunes Tank

I went to the mall yesterday to try on the new Enlite bra and checked the Athleta site beforehand to see if they got the Tie Dye Salutations back in stock in my size. It turned out they did and I was able to reserve them (love that feature) to try on. I ended up buying them (I'll return my phone order from the other day) and wore them today to the gym for a weights workout. I think I love these more than my plain black Salutations - they seem to have better coverage. They are fully opaque. If they come out with enough cute prints, I am ready to replace a significant portion of my Wunder Under crops with Salutations.

The back waistband logo is very discreet on these.

Comes with a transfer warning. I made sure to wear with darker colors and I'm going to have to remember to wash with darks, too. I made the error of leaving my hot pink Athleta Sweat Life Tank wet in the wash for hours and some color transferred to two light gray lululemon pieces of mine. The good news is that I stain treated and rewashed them and the pink came right out, so disaster averted.

I've also been eyeing the Eyelet Dunes Tank in the store and on the website. I tried it on and really, really liked it but I don't think I can keep a white top clean. For the price I'd rather not risk it but I keep thinking about it. XL Athleta tops are usually pretty roomy on me but this was snug across my chest. The back on the white is a bit sheer, too. Not terribly but you can definitely see the color/print on your bra.

I just ordered these crops last night! I wanted them so bad I paid full price rather than shop in person and use my instructor discount. I haven't bought any lulu crops in over a year. I think I'm over it. Athleta, Prana and Kira Grace all have super cute stuff and I don't have to worry about looking like everyone else at the gym or studio.

Nice post! And, I personally get the feeling you BELONG in the Eyelet Top (I've got one and tend to spill on myself a lot...this one holds up). Why don't you email me directly and I'll give you a little discount so you can buy it without a second thought? (Look me up on LinkedIn and send a private message!). -- Andréa Mallard

@Andrea - thanks! I'll contact you through LinkedIn.

@anon 5pm -I think you will love them. I wore them all day today, I didn't want to take them off.

I wore my tie Dye Salutations to a kickboxing class tonight. They are soft yet strong and stayed put. Love them. Wore them with a white LLL yogi everyday tank and no color transfer occurred. I did wash the crops as soon as I removed the tags before wearing.

any of the good power vitas are sold out - :( i tried the eyelet tanks (love athlete tops for casual) and the eyelet portion is rather 'stiff' and doesn't drape as nicely as i thought it would. i returned it for the same style tank but no eyelet (coast dunes, not eyelet dunes).

Pretty cool that the higher ups at Athleta are willing to take the time to read and listen to feedback :)

LOVE the look of the Eyelet Dunes Tank. seems to be something you can wear at the office, or when out in town.
why, oh why, don't we have Athleta in Canada??!! I am going to go cry now.

@ anon 5:39 am - I know!!

@ anon 4:25 am - I would suggest try calling a store nearest you and have them sent. I am after the lace look that I've been seeing all over my tv shows lately but the Coast Dunes are cute, too.

I'm wondering if the tank felt tight bc it was a size large (according to your picture).

LuluAddict said...

@anon 11:17 am - I had both sizes in there with me and happened to take a photo of the large. If you read the reviews on line a number of people said it was tight across the chest.

I have been an educator at LLL and now working at athleta I had to try on the Salutaion pants - i actually love them more than the Aligns/Fast and Free in Nulu/Nulux due to that they stay put and I dont have to pull them up time after time!

Never purchased anything from Athleta. Those crops are calling my name for sure.

I have a ton of Athleta items..city tops, pants, chaturanga tights, capris, chi tanks (which I LOVE because the back is a bit longer for tennis and running.)..my daughter almost had an internship in sustainability at Athleta and we were both hoping she would, but the were looking for more of a long term commitment vs 3 months..anyway, I've used their products for 4+ years and have never failed me..no pilling, no pulls like the swiftly tanks..I really like the products..don't get me wrong I love the LULU skirts, shorts r not for me..none of them, Love the hoodies and define jackets, but I'm leaning more towards Athleta as well.
