Super Tracker Jacket - Meh

Super Tracker Jacket - Inspired by Hefty?

Another weird new jacket from Lululemon. I wish they stop concentrating their efforts on jackets and get back to designing tanks. And not skimpy low support tanks for flat chested young girls, something for women with major boobage who are going to move and sweat. The All Out tank is the first new design I've bought since October and I'm on the fence about how much it exposes.  Jackets must have a higher profit margin.  Can't Lululemon raid their old designs? There are lots of great ones they've discontinued that people want to see brought back -  Repose, Spark, Whisper, Cobra, Tri-Y, Glow, Pose, Sport, Goddess, Breeze, Fit, Speed, Not So Low, Action, Wrap Tech.

Update - Here are a couple of jackets from Adidas by Stella McCartney. I seriously think this is what Lululemon is going for with some of their new stuff. Note to Lululemon, if I liked her hideous designs I would buy them.

Champion Powerback Racerback Underwire Bra - Great!

An anonymous commenter to this blog recommended the Champion Powerback Underwire sports bra (#1694) for better support than the Flow Y under the Cool Racerback tanks. Mine just arrived in the mail yesterday and I have to say I am very happy with it. It offers comfortable, firm support and a nice natural look. rates this bra a 4 out of 5 barbells for support (only the Enell gets a 5). Under the Cool Racerback, the straps peak out a little in the back and a bit in the front since the straps are rather wide. It fits pretty nicely under my Circuit Tech Tank, too. The cups do cut into my armpit area a little on me but I don't think that will bother me too much in the activities I do. Also, the cups are not padded at all, so if you are cold, people are going to know. I don't have a problem getting the bra on but I do have to wrestle it up to get it off.  I had read reviews on several sites that it ran a bit small in the cups and band so I ordered up a size and it fits perfectly. My Donna Karan sports bra (see my review from February 2009, I highly recommend this, too) is a 36DD and I ordered a 38DD in this one.  The Champion is available in sizes 32C-42DD. I haven't worn it to the gym yet but I put it on this morning to run errands and find it very comfortable. Thank you, anonymous commenter!
