From my Product Notice - Light Up Tank

Product Features:

  • Luxtreme™ feels silky smooth on, and is light weight with inherent wicking performance to keep you dry and comfortable
  • Reflective features keep you safe on night rides and runs
  • Body mapping mesh panels to keep you cool while you heat up
  • Anti-sitnk circle mesh liner with pockets for removable cups
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance

  • Sizes 4-12
This came in my product notice for Santa Monica so I assume it'll arrive at the Newport store in a couple of days. 

It's cute but I don't think it'll work for me. I doubt it has enough support (or even cup space) and it looks rather low cut. Do you runners see it being very functional? It looks long and snug fitting.

Some Goodies Today!!!

Oh my, I am so happy to see the Circle Mesh versions of the Cool Racerback!!! Circle mesh is so cool to work out in. I'm a little bummed it only comes in black and white but I ordered a black and am considering ordering the white, too. The only problem with the white is that is is very see through.  I bought a white Run: Like the Wind Singlet on markdown a couple of weeks ago and it is a basically a circle mesh tank with a

luxtreme flap. Even though the flap is silly looking, I love how cool the tank is for spin class. However, without the flap, you could see pretty much every detail on the Champion Powerback bra I wear underneath. The Champion bra isn't a bra that is designed to be worn stand alone like most of lululemon's bras are so I'd feel funny wearing it underneath such a see through tank. I'll have to think about the white one some more. I love the circle mesh tank idea, Lululemon - please make more in more colors!!!!

Circle mesh is very breathable and cool. However, be careful with it since it snags more easily than lightweight luon. Also, on me, and a few others, the chitosan anti-stink finish on the circle mesh seems to retain rather than repell odors. It's not a problem if you wash the garment after each use, though.

The I Just Wanna Run showed up in Wish Blue, along with Citron and Pig pink, and is super pretty. I prefer the look of the Run: Energy SL so that means there will be no Energy in this color. Hmmm, to order or not to order. I suspect the Citron and Pig will be on the see-through side, similar to how Chirp was.

The Run: With It crops finally showed up on-line. I am bummed they only go to a ten otherwise, I'd probably order a pair. However, the Zoom crops and Zoom knee shorts are available to the twelve. I am considering the Zoom knee shorts. Anyone have these and have any feed back on them?

New colors of the Zoom: Knee shorts have shown up but the plain black have not been replenished. I am considering getting the potion version but only have one potion top to match with it. I have lots of purple tanks but the stripes make it hard. Dang, that is why I always buy the plain black.

New Defines in Wish, Citron, and Pig showed up. I like the Wish Blue the best and the zipper is not as noticeable as in the other colors.

All in all, a very happy upload for me.

Oh yes, there was a tank and matching bra uploaded that subsequently disappeared. It's in the new colors, so it will certainly show up soon. The skirt is also new. The material looks on the shiny side, so I'd guess they are made of luxtreme. The tank looks like it has a drawcord at the bottom.

The tank looks like a mix of the Conditioning tank (the edging and luxtreme abdomen) and the Hot Class tank (the top):
