About Me

For 18 years I was an electrical engineer working in communications satellite system engineering. I've worked at Boeing, Booz, Allen & Hamilton, and General Electric. For the past ten years I've been a stay at home mom who keeps busy volunteering and chauffeuring her three kids to their activities. I live in Orange County, California and I visit either the Newport Beach and South Coast Plaza stores at least once a week.

I go to the gym ~4-5 days a week for spin class, weight lifting, and cardio. I took up running two years ago - the 2012 Sea Wheeze inspired me! To date, I have completed eight half marathons and have two more scheduled through January of 2015. I have an extensive collection of lululemon clothes and regularly turn over my wardrobe. Chances are if it's a technical piece, I have owned it at one time or another and can give you some insight into it. As a mom of three boys I spend extensive time on the sidelines at their various sporting events and lululemon's casual wear work very well for the busy mom lifestyle, too, so I have lots of experience with those product lines, too.

I discovered Lululemon six years ago liked the fit and performance of the clothes so much I decided to start a blog about it. I do check out other brands (use the search function to find reviews for MPG, Bic Bands, Kira Grace, Zobha) so if you would like me to review your product please contact me.

If you would like to contact me, my email address is lululemonaddict@gmail.com.

Does anybody know if the everyday yoga jacket is coming back?

I left mine somewhere - big gap in my life.

Lulu lemon is losing it's quality. My older stuff is great, but all my purchases this year have been subpar. I really did like this brand but with its popularity goes its quality. Additionally their return policy is awfu. Two weeks??? Are you kidding me. Where is the customer service? I will have to see quality improve before any other purchases!

Does anyone know how the sizes and fit of Nancy Rose and Kira Grace tanks compare to Lululemon?
I have been wearing Lululemon tanks for years now and I am thinking of purchasing a few pieces from Nancy Rose and Kira Grace. As there are no stores close to me, I can't 'try before I buy', and I must place mail orders. Therefore I wondered about sizing and fit for these other brands. I wear a size 4 tank in Lululemon, so should I just choose size 4 in the other brands? Does anyone know whether they are more or less generous in their sizing than lululemon tanks? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much, in anticipation.

Does anyone know whether the Business Insider story on the 12 Utterly Bizarre Facts About Lululemon is true at all? Check it out here. http://www.businessinsider.com/12-utterly-bizarre-facts-about-the-rise-of-lululemon-2012-4?op=1

I can't find anything that validates or refutes it but it certainly impacts my feelings about the brand regardless of how great the clothes are

can anyone help me find a pair of lulu pants I fell in love with a few years back .

they were skinny, tight at the ankles . came in a scratchy texture fabric. black or grey were the colour options. I think they had random zippers on them (not for pockets) and they had seam lines as well on the front and butt !

any of this ring a bell ? I've been on the hunt to find them, and if anywhere I thought I'd find them here :)

I just received a package from lulu .. A scuba hoodie in stretch color FTVG/HSFT/A068. The packing slip said "to keep you warm and cozy after winter runs. Thank you for being a 2012 & 2013 seawheezer. #nohumbug" did anyone else get this package??

Hi Everyone, Can anyone help me identify several lululemon pieces I have.. I need to know the name of them. Thank you

Can anyone help me identify my lululemon items & tell me their names?

What does everyone think of the pretty palm print jet crops? I love all of the other colours but am unsure of this one. Also, can I wear my jet crops (full length on me) in winter? I am thinking no for the palm print ones anyone and maybe for the black but would love some other opinions!

Do you know if the studio pant comes unlined in the color white?! No one at the GEC seems to know for sure.

I was hoping someone could give me an opinion between the Dance Studio Jacket and the In Flux jacket? Lululemon is replacing my old Stride jacket that I have had for a while because of some holes and I am trying to decide what to replace it with. Opinions between those two jackets as to which is better? Also, I am a size 4 in the stride jackets, do the other two fit the same? Thanks
Melissa

Hey guys, I think I can answer two of your questions if it's not too late...

The In Flux jacket is actually replacing the Dance Studio Jacket. It has a better fit. Both are still reversal and made from the same material but with a slightly diff. design.

The Dance Studio Pants in white will always come lined because of the color. They don't want them to be see-through.

Hope that helps.

HI! Stumbled upon your blog and I'm a fellow Lulu addict =)

All I've ever wanted was to go to Seawheeze, and finally my parents said yes and let me do it for my sixteenth birthday. Unfortunately I was unable to attain a spot, and so I can't go. This was my only shot to go, and I'm not sure if I'd be allowed to attend next year. Do you know if people give their spots up?

Hi - My wife bought a pair of the Align and Tight Stuff Tight pants. She worked out in each of them recently and found that both appear to have a product defect. Both pants have an issue in handling sweat (i.e., the sweat leaves an embarrassing stain in the crotch area and makes it look like she peed herself). Has anyone else had this issue?

Does anyone have any mental vent products that after washing them you had a permanent crease on them? ive tried steaming or de wrinkle in the dryer and nothing..

max bradley said...

I own a town of lulu and recently my mental vent shirt started comeing out of the washer with creases in them and now one of them I can not get out no matter what I try. any one have any idea?

LuluAddict said...

@max - weird. I'd take them back to the store and have them damage them out.

me said...

What do you think it's a better jacket - lululemon down for it jacket or lululemom fluffin down jacket?

HI there,
I own three pairs of the speed shorts from 4-5 years ago and was wondering if they are still good to purchase now? Been reading some really negative comments on them recently.

@Anonymous, YES everything is true in the article you posted. Except the eavesdropping part, I don't remember being told to do that. I used to work there and literally encountered every single one of those things on a daily basis. They also REALLY push crossfit and are huge supporters of it. The first thing I thought when I began training was that it was totally like a cult. I felt like such an outsider because I wouldn't conform to their ideas and I got harassed for it. You would think it would be an awesome place to work if you like to work out and love gym clothes. It was bizarre. Not to mention that when they hired me, it was for an Asst Mgr position for which I applied, but when training day came, I was told, "Oops, we made a mistake and meant to hire you as an educator" when I asked why the tasks I was learning were menial. Everything went downhill from there...I also agree with another comment that the quality has gone way down. I have very old pieces that are still in great shape, while new ones that I bought when working there barely lasted. Since quitting in 2014 I swore I'd never buy anything lulu again. Once you see the internal workings of the company and realize that the quality is NOT what it used to be, I don't think anyone else would either. Use ebay instead!
