Sequence Tank - So Comfy!

I bought myself a Sequence Tank this weekend before they're gone for the year. It is a low support tank designed for hot yoga. The cups are made of luon but the rest of the top is made of lightweight, breathable circle mesh which makes a great top for hot workouts. There are ties at the side so you can cinch up the waist for more cooling. The top is pretty low cut but you can layer a Flow Y bra underneath for more support and coverage. The girl at the store told me this is what she does when she wants to use the top for activities other than hot yoga. There are cup pockets if you want more support and coverage. I find this top very comfortable and versatile.

  • Too shy to wear just a bra - this is the tank for your Hot yoga practice
  • •Fabric on bodice panel treated with an anti-stink finish
  • •Sideseam gathers for a personalized length & ventilation
  • •Mesh/WDW bra construction for optimum breathability & comfort
  • •Soft brushed elastic for added comfort
  • •Chafe resistant - flat seams

Extend Crop III - Great Basic!

I recently bought a pair of Extend Crop IIIs and can't say enough good things about them. If you are looking for a basic pair of crops be sure to check out the Extend Crop IIIs. They are a straight leg crop but that doesn't mean the legs flap around. They have an ipod pocket on the inside of the waistband. They are very similar to the Relaxed Fit Crop. I have owned a pair of those, too, but if I had to pick between the two, I would choose the Extend crops. The cut and the locations of the seaming seems to hold your tummy in / define your rear just a little more in the Extends. They are excellent for nearly any activity. I wore mine to spin class this morning.

Product Features:
  • Relaxed fit for lower impact sports
  • Made with luon, our signature fabric
  • Drawstring for added support
  • 4 way stretch fabric
  • Chafe resistant - flat seams

Try On Review: Inspire Tank

I've tried and tried to like the Inspire tank. I've watched the video on Facebook. I've tried it on. But all I can muster is a lukewarm admiration.

I like that it is made of a combo of my two favorite lightweight Lululemon materials, Luxtreme and Silverescent, that are a dream to do heavy duty cardio in. I like that it was designed for larger chested women. I like that it comes in a very rare size 14. But it really doesn't speak to me.

I know I'm shallow but when I pay big bucks for Lululemon I want to feel prettier, slimmer, sexier than before I put it on. If I didn't, I'd just wear some old tee shirt and sweats to the gym.

Maybe I don't care for it because the color combos it comes in are rather dull. I dunno. I think the design detail that bugs me the most is the collar. I didn't care for it on the Race Tech and I don't like it at all on this top. I'm sure I'd like this top more if it were a pure scoop neck style.

Maybe I'd like more if it had more eye catching color blocking or slenderizing seaming or came in an unusual print. The whole top just screams "fat girl" at me. That's just my opinion. It's a great technical top but for the money I want technical and pretty.

Inspire Tank Features:
  • Ideal shelfless tank to wear over your full support bra of choice
  • •Scoop neckline & wide straps provide just enough coverage
  • •Silverescent™ using X-Static, the silver fibre
  • •Anti-stink & anti-static
  • •4-way stretch Luxtreme® provides extra support
  • •Body-skimming torso with longer length hem
  • •Hem drawcord to prevent the top from riding up
  • •Chafe resistant - flat seams
