Try Ons: Another Round LS, Sweat Your Heart Out Tank, Entwined Wunder Unders and More

It's been a long time since I've really liked a long sleeve cotton top from lululemon, mostly because they feature dropped shoulders which makes for a boxy fit and adds a bunch of material that bunches up on my armpit/upper chest, but the Another Round is a very nice classic tee with normal shoulders. It's got a pretty, round open neckline that can show off your bra straps. The fit is relaxed through the waist but not boxy and the length is nicely long. I exchanged the Dark Adobe Love SS I ordered last week for the Another Round. I would order your normal Love Tee size.

I tried on the white Sweat Your Heart Out Tank figuring that it would be the least sheer on me since my pasty white belly wouldn't shine through the fabric nearly as much as it would in the darker colors. I liked the tank but wish it was about two inches longer. The sizing is a loose-fitting TTS.

The Crescent tank is a very cute style. I liked it a lot but this style isn't for me unless they add a couple more inches to the length. I hope we see more cotton tops in Alberta Lake, though, it's super pretty.

The Illuminate Wunder Unders are very pretty but they do fade a bit with stretch since they're backed in white. I ordered this from the upload but not sure I am keeping them. 

The Submarine Long Distance Tank was less sheer than shown on the website. The material is very light and airy but it has a texture that I was aware of on my skin. I would like this tank a lot better if it was about three inches longer.

The Train Times Tank in Heathered Blue Nile is super pretty but I wish this style was a bit longer in the back.

My B&W pretties.
I wasn't sure I'd like the Entwined print Wunder Unders when I saw them in person but they're super pretty. The black is very saturated and it's contrasted with a medium gray. I ended up getting the matching Energy bra since it will look cute peeping out from under black tops. The material is backed in gray and fade with stretch is minimal. The print is opaque. I've read people are sizing down in the these.

The Entwined Energy bra is cut lower in the armpits than regular Energy Bras. This is my first Nulux Energy bra so not sure if common to them or just a one-off for this print.

Color Comparison: Athleta Cassis to lululemon Dark Adobe

Those of you who have been shopping more at Athleta will be happy to know that the new color Cassis is very close to lululemon's Dark Adobe so you'll be able to mix and match from both brands.

Lululemon Rumors: Shoe Co-lab with Athletic Propulsion Labs (APL)

Lululemon is going to do a shoe collaboration with Athletic Propulsion Labs (APL) in the near future. This isn't unexpected since they use their shoes on the website quite a bit. I haven't tried these shoes but they're cute. They're only going to be available in a few stores but I would think (hope?) we could order them off the website.
