Feel Good Pant - Total Comfort Clothes

I initially thought the Feel Good pants looked like overpriced ordinary sweatpants when they hit the web. However, I have been reading rave reviews about them on Lululemon's Facebook Site so I decided to try them on today. I have to say, I am a convert to their awesomeness. They are so wonderfully soft and comfortable they could be pajamas. I can easily see myself spending all day in them and a Remix lulu light, just bathing in softness.

I tried on the Static shown above and the Black. I thought the Static were a little softer and ran slightly bigger. On the web they are available from sizes 2-14.

As the description says, they do have a skimming fit so if you are pushing the limit of your luon pants 4-way stretch you might want to size up for a looser fit.

Product Features:
  • A sassy sweatpant with a skimming fit for your warm up, running around town or those long travel days
  • A low rise pant with a smooth waist for comfort
  • Our own blend of cotton FRENCH TERRY has stretch so it won't bag out!
  • Chafe resistant flat seams
  • Preshrunk so there are no surprises when you wash me!

Cool Racerback - A Great Basic!

Today I went to Lululemon determined to buy a top in the new Power Purple color. My stores had Power Ys, Swift Tanks, Hot Set Tanks, and Scoop Neck Tanks in Power Purple but I ended up getting a Power Purple Cool Racerback. I don't know why I have waited so long to buy this tank. It is a great basic and perfect for larger chested ladies since it fits on the big side and you can wear your own bra underneath it. In addition to being loose fitting, yet flatteringly cut, it is long and made of light luon which makes it very cool for intense aerobic activities. I cannot wait to wear it to the gym tomorrow.

One of the great things about this top is that it is available in a beautiful rainbow of colors. I know the educators in my stores love to wear them layered. The top photo shows the tank in Raspberry which is just beautiful in person. I must get a top in this color, too! The other photos show Jellybean purple and Jazzberry pink. These colors might only be available in Canada since I haven't seen them here yet. However, I hope the Jazzberry makes it across the border because it's super cute.

PS - Be sure to wear a Flow Y or similar bra underneath the Cool Racerback. A Deep V shows too much in front and ruins the whole line of the scoop neck.

PPS - For those who are petite and feel this top is too long, Lululemon will also hem tops for you free of charge.

Product Features:
  • A must have for all your sweaty activities
  • Wear with the Flow Y Bra II for no visible bra straps
  • Made with luon light, our signature fabric's little sister
  • Chafe resistant flat seams

Try On Review: Cozy Up Jacket - Better Size Up!!!

I just got back from the Lululemon store where I tried on the new Cozy Up Jacket in solid black. If you are thinking of getting this jacket, you had better size up at least one size, if not two if you want to wear anything underneath it more substantial than a wafer thin tee or have a large chest. I could barely zip up the solid black Cozy Up I tried on in my normal size. It fits tight through the tummy and chest. Also, unlike the Remix Hoodie there is no give in the ribbed material at the bottom of this jacket. This jacket looks very similar to the Remix Hoodie except it doesn't have a hood - it's made of the same stiff, heavy cotton fleece. It runs very short in the torso, maybe even shorter than the Remix. I like the style but if I had to choose between it and the Remix, I would probably get a Remix.

Product Features from the Hang Tag:
It will keep you warm and toasty as you go from a steamy studio to the cool outdoors.
2. This Cozy is made from preshrunk COTTON FLEECE that you will never want to take off.
3. It has functional pockets for all your necessities.
4. The thumbholes help to keep sleeves in place.
5. It has chafe resistant flat seams.
