Australian Goodies - V-Neck Swiftlies and Dash Tights


The Pow and Pop Orange V-neck Swiftlies are on the Australian side of the website. I missed those yesterday, too. Also, a photo of the new Dash tight (Australia only).

So excited about te v neck swiftly. Hope they get uploaded Monday!!!!

Minda said...

v-neck = yay!!!
dash tight = yikes!!!

Don't think those tights would look good on me. Kinda emphasizes the thigh area and I have thunder thighs! :)

AmyB said...

Super jealous that the Australia site has tons of scuba hoodies. What's the deal? Super sad!!!

MonkeyGirl said...

It's seasonal- Australia gets the scubas for the cooler weather. We'll get ours soon :)

Jen said...

First comment ... been reading, but not yet posting.

@AmyB - Remember, it's winter there! I'm shocked they are getting so many summer colors.

They also have a ls swiftly in pow pink. I may have to return the tank I just bought today if that or the v-neck come out next week!

On another note - bought the pop orange swiftly tank at a store on Sunday, ran in it today (forgot to wash first), and remembered to soak after the run. Left it in the sink all day - came home to it in PINK water. UGH! Glad I didn't just throw it into the wash after I ran. So, I emptied the sink and am soaking again. Grr on the bleeding, but it's not stopping me. ;)

macfrannie said...

OT - Has anyone else noticed the Pink (I think it might be Heathered POW Pink) Vinyasa scarf on the accessory page header of the Aussie site? Is that new and in our future? OMG I so want that scarf. I have the heathered porcelaine one and just love it.

Anonymous said...

AmyB don't ever be jealous of the Australian site!!! We get half the range you guys do and at far more ridiculous prices. Would you like to pay $149 for a In Stride Jacket or $115 for your Gather and Crow Crops?!? As a former loyal customer to the 'International' Lulu site... I certainly don't!!! And you can keep those $139 Scuba hoodies too.

Dash Tight = YUCK ! :(

They look outdated... like someone else said... from the 90's

Anon 9.09pm: OH so true! Pricing is *ahem, different. They also pulled our we made too much section last weekend, it's no gone. So sad.

Anon 8.58: I'm sure that's the heathered flash. That banner's been there awhile and I missed it in the upload in May-ish.

Yep, winter here. Wet and gray. We usually get one/two seasons behind you gals but with a burst of colour. I'm living in my inspires for runs and ran with a woolie hat on the weekend. I need sunshine and warmth!

Do you think the WMTM will come back??

Anonymous said...

Anon 9:09pm: the Australian prices appear higher because they are in Australian dollars and not US or Canadian dollars. If you do the conversion, their prices are similar to ours and NOT higher.

Anonymous said...

Great news, I've been wanting a swiftly tee for ages but have been waiting for v necks to come back (in a color I like- last round of colors I remember passing on and then v necks were gone).

Anonymous said...

Australian dollar is higher than USD at the moment....

Anonymous said...

Anon 3:50am Australian prices are much higher given the Aussie dollar is pretty much on parity with the us dollar so prices are higher for eg the my mantra top is $98 on the aust site if I order on the us site it is $68 even with sales tax the amount is much lower.

Anonymous said...

Example Gather & Crow crops:
US$78 on US site
AU$115 on AU site

On conversion: AU$115 is US$118.05 according to Oanda.com or US$118.20 according to XE.com

I know the pow pink crb bleeds but does the pow pink light swiftly tank bleed? Anyone heard or experienced anything?

Focus said...

@Minda- your post about a cartoon with a crazed Lulu, neon clad woman racing to the store with outstretched hand containing a credit card, dripping neon puddles, is too funny. It reminds me of a local actual fundraising run called the "Color Run" ( supported the Ronald McDonald House), at any rate my friends ran in it. You started the race, many in all white, then at each check point you got a shot of color sprayed on you. At the end of the race they were very neon beauties, we joked that if they had worn their Lulu they wouldn't have had to hit any check points because their bleeding Lulu would have done the job...sad commentary.

Anonymous said...

Yes nice try Anon 3.50 but your argument doesn't make sense ... AUD worth more than the greenback today ($1.02?) therefore we are paying ridiculously inflated prices and then some.
Annoys when the common (valid) criticism of retail/hospitality/cost of living in Australia is so high, but then businesses clearly take advantage through taking-the-piss price-gauging (eg LLL, but not the only one).
Either way, good for my wallet = feeling less lulu devotion atm. LOVE this blog however :)

MonkeyGirl said...

Somewhat OT (As it seems now everything bleeds, so maybe when discussing lulu it is ON topic...)-

went to Lulu's FB page and there was some nice discussion about bleeding, where customers kept asking for answers. I hope if enough people say something things will change- I REALLY want the old Lulu quality back :(

There was also a picture of another item that bled- a bra.

I am afraid that my days of buying pants at lulu might be done for now as well, because I just can't do the triangle gusset.

I am frustrated. This Lulu breakup is slow and not going well- I think I've- maybe?- moved out of denial and am entering the anger stage.

Anonymous said...

the prices are terrible but they r also shipping out their inventory to another continent. i'm sure the distance plus any hidden taxes....etc...etc.....and then lulu wants to make extra bucks on the australians. and boom. $50 more.

Anonymous said...

Canadians, Extra Long CRB avail on wmtm this a.m. in heathered blurred grey, $39. Also Lucky Luon headband in coal/white microstripe, $9. Love that headband esp. for hot yoga.
Cheers.

Anonymous said...

OT, but I just ran in what felt like 100% humidity and no breeze in my Sun Sprinter crops and I hardly knew they were there...like second skin and so breathable. My Long & Lean tank from Target however, I wanted to peel off in the first two minutes!! I just dont know why these crops haven't gotten more reviews and I never hear people talking about them? And they are so much more flattering than the Inspires. I bought two already, didn't want the black and I just hope they come out with more colors!

Sophia said...

A bunch of people ordered the sun sprinter crop when they first came out in the flash/embossed faded dot. And a lot of people returned them because they didn't like the distribution on dots on their crops. I think after that, people gave up on that crop (after all, it doesn't have cool pockets or anything) and that's why you don't see people discussing it much. Personally, I never tried the sun sprinter (I require my crops to have an iPhone sized pocket) but I did buy the run in the sun crops when they came out - LOVE. Very light, breathable, etc. I imagine they are similar to the sun sprinter...and totally agree that they were underrated/discussed.

Anonymous said...

@Anon 6:54 - I've just added running to my mostly yoga workout and found calf-length crops to be too hot to run in. Although I did use my yoga (Luon) crops to run in and they were too hot. I'm still waiting for my Fast & Free knee-length crops to arrive. Anyway, are luxtreme crops more breathable than Luon? I was interested in the Sun Sprinter crops but the length deterred me.

Anonymous said...

Since we're on the topic of run/luxtreme crops...which of the lulu run crops sold this summer has the highest rise? A couple of them (e.g. Excel) are too low rise for me. Thanks for any feedback!

AmyB said...

Oh my goodness! I didn't mean to upset any lulu friends! We are all in this lulu together. I was only jealous because I am fairly new to lulu and purchased my first scuba a few weeks ago... And now I am a wee bit obsessed with them! I am happy you all have lots on your page... I was just drooling a bit at the beautiful colors!!
Please know I was only being silly about the scubas, I would never want to hurt anybody or offend! I love this blog and feel like we are a little family! Happy day friends!!!

Anonymous said...

One of the instructors told me that the Ebb & Flows were good for running and to me the rise is pretty high. Speaking of, I tried them on TTS w/ hot pink undies on and they were not see thru, even with the bend test.

Anonymous said...

macfrannie, that scarf is the heathered flash vinyasa scarf that came out in the US in May. It came and went in a flash! I have it, love it, but it is a bleeder too.

Anonymous said...

Speaking of scarves, I wish they would make a vinyasa scarf in the Mirage print. I would love that (and no bleeding, please).

Anonymous said...

I LOVE my Run in the Sun crops and my Run A Marathon crops. The Run Suns are cooler (even though longer) because of all the circle mesh panels. Meanwhile the Marathon crops are more compressive and have 5 pockets! I always size up (from Groove and Turbo size) for tights and WUs, but I think that I could have stuck with my Groove size for the Run Sun Crops. The size up still works because I can tighten the drawstring waistband. I believe that the rise on both these crops is medium and a little higher than the Excel Crops.

Anonymous said...

Also, I do think that luxtreme crops are cooler than luon. Similarly, when its hot I much prefer to run in my silver bullet tanks rather CRBs.

Anonymous said...

Third post, same Anon. :) I forgot to give props to my Tie and Fly tanks for hot weather running. I love love love this top so much that I bought a second one. People complained about the length, and it is really long. However, with the cinches it totally works for me (I'm 5'4"). People have also said that cinching causes the mesh to bunch up, but I found that you just can't cinch it too high and you might have to play with it a bit to find the length that works for you. All that said, this tank is so breathable and cool! It shows sweat, as do the silver bullet tanks, but when you're running in 90 degree temps with humidity theres going to be sweat. I come back from runs looking like I've jumped in a pool. Lol. So, showing sweat is not a concern for me. Staying cool is! Also, for those that love Ray but worry about bleeding I have had zero problems with my ray Fly and tie tank, and I think I read somewhere on this blog that the luxtreme ray was not having any bleeding issue at all per an educator. Anyway, that's my thoughts on hot weather gear. Happy running! :D

Anonymous said...

Perhaps not the right place to ask this, but I haven't been able to find the answer - I just got a beautiful special edition black/white dip dye Scuba at an outlet - how on earth should I wash this thing? Soak first?

thank you in advance!!!

Anonymous said...

In photos, I feel like the pow pink light swiftlys look a little too pepto bismol for my taste. Can anybody who has seen these in person comment on that? If there were two versions - pp light and regular pp, I feel like I'd like the regular pp better.

Minda said...

@Focus !!
I SAW the color run being advertised! It looks like so much fun - I want to do it when they come to florida =D I can just go in with Paris Pink Flash and Pow Pink and RAY and no one would know the difference!! HILARIOUS!

Just saw Pop Orange WUC :)

Anon-9:44- awesome!!

Back on topic of Run crops, has anyone tried the Run Nothing to Hide crop. The waistband supposedly can be worn up or down, but it looks like it is a floppy waist. If you want to wear it high and unfolded, will the waistband stay up without needing to be constantly tugged? And is it as lightweight as the Sprinter and Sun crop?

Anonymous said...

@Anon 8:59AM Re: Ray Luxtreme -- My guess is that the educator who told you that there were no issues with bleeding had not run/sweated in anything made of ray luxtreme. I have the Run: Bound Bra which is made of Power Luxtreme and, sadly, it is a bleeder.

From many of the comments I've read here and on Lulu's facebook site, it seems that Lulu is pretty good about accepting returns of items that bleed. However, I think the company is getting off pretty easy since there is no compensation for all of the non-Lulu items (other clothing/yoga mats/furniture, etc.) that their "bloody" clothing is ruining.

...and THANK YOU LLA for your time and effort in maintaining this fantastic blog!

Yay! Heathered or Solid and where? Hopefully it's not as sheer as the Ray or is that whishful thinking?

So.. I just got my order delivered from Monday .. Got the in stride jacket in the denim.. And guess what .. IT STINKS!!

Anyone else with that problem?

Of course it's more expensive we make more in Australia. I just moved from CA USA to melbourne Australia to go the same job and my salary more than doubled...... When you are making twice as much you can afford to pay more.

Sourkraut said...

@Anon 6:54 AM -- I love love love my Sun Sprinter crops too! I still can't talk myself into running in shorts so crops are the solution for me. Those were longer than I was looking for but I also found that they're absolutely perfect for a summer run. In fact, I've been wearing them out and about since we've got a heat wave going on here. Cute and functional! I did initially hate the piss poor attempt at fading dots but after tracking down a pair with slightly better dot distribution (not perfect but better) I've decided I can live with it. I think they're much cuter with the dots than without.

@Anon 10:21 AM -- I tried on the Nothing to Hide crops in the store today (so haven't tested them when running) and thought the overall look was similar to my Marathon crops, which I also love. They felt secure even with the folded down waistband and seem like they'd be nice and lightweight for the summer. They even have a cute but understated little ruffle on the side hem near the bottom. I'm debating whether or not I need another pair of crops but if I do those'll be my next buy. While I had to size up to a 10 in the Marathons I found my TTS 8 fit fine here.

OT rant -- I know many people have had this complaint before but it's the first time it's happened to me since I lost 90 lbs. over 10 years ago. I bring that up because I worked hard so I wouldn't have this particular problem again. That's right, there's something I want but it doesn't come in my size! I hate how Lulu does that with the bras, they decide what sized woman will look best in the bra and only manufacture it in those limited sizes. Well, I now have that problem with the Some Like it Hot shorts. I tried on the 8 in the store, which is my usual size for Lulu crops and skirts, but because they're so fitted and I have a pear-shaped body I'd prefer to size up to a 10 for comfort. While I know it's bigger than many of you hard core athletes I don't think size 10 is unreasonably large. Apparently Lulu does since they don't even make the shorts in that size! I'm feeling a little frustrated and annoyed right now because I was ready to snap them up in bruised berry. Feeling kind of bummed out now as a result.

Sophia said...

I wear a 6 in lulu and sized up to an 8 in those-so I can understand your frustration. but for what it's worth, the bruised berry some like it hot shirts are bleeders!!!! I got them to wear as underwear under my white capoeira pants. Per washed them, no bleeding...then a little sweat and my whole ass was purple. So you're NOT missing out.

Sophia said...

I meant some like it hot SHORTS

Sourkraut said...

@Sophia, Yikes! I feel a little bad saying this but that made me laugh. Be glad your suffering (and your purple bum!) helped cheer me up. Guess I dodged a bullet by not being able to order them, eh? So my question is that if they know about this problem why are those still being sold? Not looking good for Lulu.

Nicole said...

Raced in the nothing to hide mini today. LOVE. Wish I would have bought the white too. Oh well.

Just washed pow and pop swiftlys after sweating in both. No bleeding. YAY! Bring on the Pop V. Loving orange :)

Anonymous said...

I had the same issue with the lilac In Stride. The GEC told me to air it out for 24 hours and it would smell better but I opted to return it. Apparently it is an issue with items coming from the online store. I returned it to a store and they had people returning other similarly smelly items that were ordered online. Rumor has it that was the issue with the clam digger crops.

Anonymous said...

Got my clam diggers today. Not stinky and very cute!

I meant Ray silverescent doesn't bleed rather than luxtreme. Sorry!

Anonymous said...

Run crops: I fell in love with my Run Inspires. I alternate these with Run a marathons. The marathons have room for four gels, one back pocket and two side pockets in the legs.

Summer sees me in speeds though they could do with more pockets.

OT: the luxtreme material in my inspires is starting to form holes (not near the seams). Usual wear and tear? Has anyone else seen this? A seam is also coming undone in a new pair of wunder unders in the butt, and I'm not sure what their replacement policy means (no info on web). Any info gratefully received, you excellent people!

macfrannie said...

I must confess I purchased the Pop Orange CRB today, I went to the store resolved to not buy any potential bleeders but I couldn't help myself. I hoped beyond hope when I bought it that it wouldn't bleed and so far so good. I soaked it in dilute vinegar (1 cup vinegar and 3 cups water) for a couple of hours and saw a little color come out, but not much, just enough to slightly tint the water. Nothing like what I saw from my flash gear. I'll wear with a dark color the first time I sweat in it and re-soak it to see if my sweat pulls any more color, and report back.

On a side note, I tried to post a review on the CRB page about my experience with the color and I couldn't because I'd posted a review last year about a dazzling CRB. Is the system a one review per product deal? Has anyone else ever experienced this one review per product per person limit?

macfrannie said...

@ anon 2:55PM did you find the clam diggers to be tts? the only reviews on the web are from last year and I hesitate to use that as a guide for the new batch. Also, what color did you get? Inquiring minds want to know...

Minda said...

@Sourkraut Congrats on your amazing weightloss! I bet you feel a zillion times happier and healthier! I know I do!! I am also someone who has come back down after packing on mega pounds eating pizzas to deal with things that stressed me out. - Now I run or elliptical or do something active! I used to really believe that bagels absorbed misery!!!! HAH!

Anyway - I know the frustration of wanting something but just not finding it in a particular brand. Don't worry about it. There are a lot of cute things out there that fit a larger bust. I wear the 10's in Lulu for the bras but I can't stand most of them as they have smallish bands around the side -or just clearly made for an A/B cup. The only one I find comfortable is the 50 rep bra I found at an outlet last december.
-
Anyway thats something I found upsetting about Pure Barre. For a long time they sold the pure barre tops only in size medium and it is a JUNIORS medium LOL.
So finally they sell a large- its snug but dang it I wanted to represent!!!! All the PB girls look the same, willowy non sweaters wrapped perfectly in black tights and lulu tops, moving in unison to the driving beats of Britney or Beyonce. . . lol. Oh how I want to be a willowy reed too! LOL but ALAS. . . not there yet! Maybe by Christmas I will feel like I've ARRIVED.

Anyway. my point is - there are other fish in the sea who cater to all sizes AND its cute AND its flattering. just gotta have fun hunting it down. Stay Positive!

Anonymous said...

I love my sun sprinters! Haven't run in them for heat-related health reasons, but I'm loving them for yoga and everyday. I'll take any and all black embossed dots pants; I think they're adorable. :) Send them my way!

yogibabe said...

@Sourkraut
Happy that you found a decent dot distribution on the Sun Sprinter. I remembered that we both bought the same color when it was released. I also remembered that you were unhappy with your dots, so I'm glad that you found a nice compromise and kept it. This is because I LOVE mine. I don't run in it, but used it for a very cute yoga crop in these hot summer days. Enjoy it and to echo Minda up above, a happy, healthy congrats on your amazing weight loss!! There's lots of other cute things to shop for and never fret on the things that are not there....(getting philosophical here, heehee!).

Anonymous said...

Wow Anon 3.50am... what an ignorant comment! Perhaps you might want to do that 'conversion' again since the Aus dollar is stronger than the US!!! The $149Aus we pay for an In Stride is actually $153Us... so even worse!
And 11:53 AM while I'm so happy that you have such a high paying job... not all Australians are so lucky. Many people here earn low wages just as many in the US earn a lot! The difference is that we already pay so much more for food and rent... and now Lulu!!!
Ok had my rant :)

macfrannie said...

@Sourkraut - Girl you rock. You too Minda!

I've lost weight recently too, though not as much as you all, but enough that I CAN wear the LLL stuff (couldn't before). I use my growing stock of expensive gear as my carrot to keep the weight off. My reward to myself for reaching goal and making Lifetime with Weight Watchers (and maintaining) was a whole new LLL workout gear wardrobe.

I hope you both feel great.

yogibabe said...

Ooops! My bad! How could I overlooked it? Congrats to you too Minda (aka melloyello "Kill Bill Ninja") and macfrannie!!! ;) Stay healthy and happy, and always looking cute in your lulu gears!

Sourkraut said...

@Minda, yogibabe, and macfrannie -- Thanks, girls!! Go us for losing weight and/or committing to a healthy life full of activity. Love the supportive community of addicts we've got going on here. :)

I think rewarding yourself for good behavior with something other than food is a great way to stay motivated. Especially with lovely Lulu pieces. I did that when I was losing weight and really think it worked. I saw a few folks on the Lulu Facebook page pledge to do a certain amount of activity every week. If they fail they have to give up a Lulu item from their closet (eek!). If they make it they get to buy something new. To me that would be all the motivation I need. I think it's a great idea and a fun way to keep on track. Honestly, it's so not me to buy things at full price, especially when the prices are as high as Lulu's, but then I realized that I deserve a little treat for all of my hard work.

Anonymous said...

I have to say, I am always happy when I see a comment from Minda (and Sourkraut and several others!) pop up here. I know it's going to be useful AND entertaining. Also, congrats to all of you who have worked so hard to lose a significant amount of weight and keep it off. That takes a lot of discipline, and you should be very proud of yourselves. (It took me what felt like ages to lose the weight I gained when pregnant with my second child, and once I did, that's when I got hooked on lulu.)

Okay! On topic...I'm starting to regret that I didn't buy a Bruised Berry Swiftly tank. I was holding out for the CRB, but it doesn't look like I'm ever going to have the chance to buy a BB CRB--and the size 4 Swiftly tank has already sold out online and in my local store. (Does anyone have any word on whether the BB CRB is ever going to be sold beyond the strategic partner stores? Because none of the strategic partners here have had it.) I did buy a Bruised Berry Swiftly SS, so I think I just need to be happy with that.

Jamie Barba said...

@anon 10:21, I have the Nothing to Hide crops, and I love them! I don't usually like things with a fold over top....at all, but these are great. They stayed in place perfectly for a short run followed by teaching PiYo, and I sweat like nothing you've ever see. One of my new faves. If they had them in more colors, I'd buy them all. I wear a 10 in LLL, and the fit perfectly, one of my most flattering pair of pants, workout or otherwise.

I have the Marathon & the Excel and I definitely like the Nothing to Hide better than the Excel, mainly due to the lower rise of the Excel, which can make me look a little muffin-y. I tried the Sun Sprinter on and liked them, but I opted for the Fast & Free instead cuz I liked the little ruffle, and I love those too. I also have several pair of Inspires & find them extremely flattering.

Not sure I helped much!!

MonkeyGirl said...

Wow, Sourkraut! What an accomplishment on your weight loss! You must be very proud! You, too Minda- heck, yay to everyone on here for working on a healthy lifestyle :) You guys rock! I slowly gained quite a bit of weight the past several years- I'm a stress eater too- but have really committed myself to get back into my smaller sized jeans. I know I can do it :)

I really like what Minda said about there is something out there for somebody, in terms of clothing.

None of the lulu bras work for me- I'm a b/c cup. The band is always too tight- which is odd as I have a narrow rib cage. If I size up, I don't get the needed support.

I wore the CW-X for running (LOVE them- and they not only feel great they make you look fierce! I'm not willowy either, but these suckers compress me into as willowy shape as possible), but they are hot. Now that it's warm, I wear unattractive, but functional champion shorts. I have yet to find a good warm weather solution for bottoms- lulu shorts look awful on me. Perhaps I will try one of the warm weather lulu crops. Hopefully no CT will be involved. It's really not fair to my neighbors- no one needs to see that in the elevator.

Anonymous said...

At Anon 10:21, I wrote this yesterday under the 'more of the latest'. I tried on the Run Nothing to Hide. The waistband will not stay down if you want to keep it down. There's a review on the Lulu site by someone who's run in them and says exactly this. I find the waistband fussy and I love the low rise of the Excel & Fast & Free and the overall fit of both of those.

"In store today I tried on the Wanderful Flare Pant in both the black luon and the black denim in sizes 4 & 6. Regular luon I would stick to my tts 4. Denim I could go with the 4 but would size up to 6. I would definitely need to hem them 3" to 4" as I am 5' 5" and they are very long. I really like them, can pull them off, but I don't need them. They can wait.

I saw all the engineered mirage print stuff, including the Daily Tank. It seems OK and the print on the DT in person was pretty subtle. I've decided I have OD'd on engineered mirage just from having seen so much of it now, online and in person. I'd like a regular length CRB but I'm basically *meh*.

Yesterday someone was wondering about sizing on the Run Nothing to Hide crops (reg. 4 or size up to 6?). I tried them on today and can reconfirm that if you're a tts 4 you should stay in a 4. These crops have a fair bit of give and are not tight at all. (Run Excel, *Fast & Free & Run Marathon are definitely more fitted). I would still pass on Nothing to Hide due to the fold down waistband. I don't think it would stay down if you wanted to keep it down. Pretty thin material but I didn't find them sheer in general or with the bend test.

* a correction from my original comments

Anonymous said...

@ Anon 7:29 AM - The Run A Marathon crops have the highest rise. I prefer the lower rise of the Excel and Fast & Free.

Anonymous said...

@ Anon 4:18 PM - you can only write one review for an item. You can, however, add a comment to your own review no problem. You can only add a comment, you can't change the rating of the item or modify your original review.

I think LLL should allow you to do at least one update review several months later, including rating etc., perhaps you've changed your mind (good or bad) or perhaps you just want to still singing the praises (or hate) of the item. Yes, I know this is too much to ask of LLL.

Anonymous said...

Hey macfrannie,

Yes I found them TTS. I'm a consistent size 4 in lulu bottoms. I bought the heathered charcoal because they'll match everything and have a little more personality than solid black. I'm wanting the heathered indigo now but there's only 2's left on the Canadian side. I guess this is a good thing as I've spent far too much lately growing my studio crop collection!

Anonymous said...

meant *sing

macfrannie said...

@anon 7:27PM thanks so much for the info. I've been eyeing the heathered indigo ones. I might have to take the plunge.

@anon 7:25PM I agree about being able to update and post multiple reviews. Particularly for the core seasonless items.

Thanks to everyone for the great info. As always so incredibly helpful.

LoveLulu said...

I agree about being allowed to post multiple reviews especially since we've been seeing different fabrics, sizing and quality issues based on colors. I may love the BB CRB and rate it 5 stars. But for the same tank in a different color I may rate it lower because of bleeding issues and feel of the fabric.

Anonymous said...

Agreed on multiple reviews and that you can have a different experience with a different color, quality issues can crop up. It should show up as a "review" and not under a "comment". However, I do update my original review(s) from time to time with a comment if there's anything useful to add or ask, especially when it's about how the garment performs during running or yoga. They say they read the reviews and comments...

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:54 am - I love the Sun Sprinters when I tried them in the store. I just don't feel like buying a crop to run in 80 degree weather.

@ anon 9:15 am - I wouldn't soak it. Just put it in the machine on delicate and dry flat. Some people put in the dryer on low to fluff it up a bit.

@ anon 3:04 pm - I had luxtreme crops get pinholes high on the inner thigh/crotchish area after about a year of spinning 2-3x a week. It was from wear and tear rubbing against the saddle. You can try to return them and see what they say.

Beth Runner said...

I'm with MonkeyGirl--CW-X compression tights are fantastic! I wore them when I ran my first marathon and felt less sore afterwards than I did after some of my training runs.

I wish lulu would make some compression gear...but my wallet doesn't! (Seriously, I could really go for some cute lulu knee high compression socks.)
