Headbands Are Here & new WWA + New Colors & Run Tank Arriving in Stores

I got a Product Alert from my favorite store that new Mesh Headwrap were in in the latest pastel colors so I visited this afternoon. I ended up getting a Bubbilicious and a Passion Space dye headband. This is my first Space Dye anything but I think it makes a fun headband. The store also had Passion and Lavender in Mesh Headwraps, Dance, and Slipless headbands.  The store educator told me they are getting a lot of new stuff in this week, including new items in Lime and a new running tank but I can't for the life of me remember the name of it.

Wear With All Lime (or Clean Green, I can't remember which)

Wear With All Chirp - I Like This One

There are also WWAs in white, black, and dark classic sport gray.

I saw this today but didn't like it as much in person. As someone commented, the coal stripes are darker than in the photographs so it looks like another pirate-y striped top. However, this girl looks great.

I'm surprised how shiny these photograph.

I had to comment on how hideous this combination of clothes is, not to mention how it emphasizes the wrong parts of her figure. Lululemon makes such pretty items that are meant to be coordinated. I don't get the 'I got dressed in the dark look' of throwing on four items that don't even go together - coal & pink pants, lagoon swiftly tank, bold blue bra, & IDK what headband. This outfit isn't selling your clothes.

Would you happen to know the length of the WWA jacket? I'm afraid that it might overtake my 5'3" frame.

Has anyone noticed if the grey pants show sweat marks -- Gross I know -- but that is why I tend to stay away from anything other than black on the bottom for working out -- but I really like the grey and bubbalicious combo, I might have to break my own rule, but I know I will end up unloading them on ebay if they show the sweat -- Just curious if anyone has given them a good Spin test to see. I am so glad to see some new colors -- I love the lime for summer -- So fresh! --

Ooohh! New things coming out this week - something to look forward too! Please, I hope this new run tank is NOT racerback (finger's crosssed). Thanks for the update!

I am completely obsessed with the space dye pattern!!!

Pattybea said...

Were there WWA's at your local store Lulu Addict??

The length looks very iffy to me. I saw some photos on FB and there were a few girls that looked like sausages and a few that looked good. A definite "must try on".

I tried the coal pants...I think there might be sweat issues...it is a very flat gray.

I am also thinking about getting the Groove Pants with the Bubblicious Pink/Grey Stripe waistband. I got the matching Stride Jacket so it would be a set, but I am also afraid of sweat marks on these grey Grooves. I also saw that they make the Astro Pant with the Bubblicious Pink/Grey Stripe waistband but the pants are black, not grey. I'm definitely keeping the Stride Jacket - would you guys get the matching Groove Pants in grey or get the Astro Pants in black (both have the matching waistband)?

Nadine said...

The coal definitely show crotch sweat. I don't have these 'new' pants but a pair of coal grooves & when I wear them to the gym I look like I pee'd myself...

Hey ladies- is it just me, or do lululemon pants in ANYTHING but black make you look 10 lbs HEAVIER instead of the usual 10 lbs lighter? I feel really self conscious in any of the non-black colors...like you can see every little curve of my badonk, which is not what I am looking to do, especially not in the gym or around town.

I second the no more racerback in the run tanks. There are just no good "hold them in" sports bras for bigger busted girls which come in racer back... I love all the run stuff..cannot wait!

thanks for the feedback on grey vs black pants...i think i am going to get the black astros. i read somewhere that the knee part of the astros is not as fitted as the grooves but when i asked a salesperson they denied it. what is the real difference between the astro and grooves besides the higher waistband and straighter leg on the astro?

Zanna said...

I wonder if the new run tank is the Run:Energy SL that is online right now. As for the WWA, it will overwhelm my 5'2" frame. Love some of the colours though.

Anon: I read that too about the knee being different in the Astro pants. I think whoever wrote that had a odd shaped body. I just purchased my third Astro last week. They only difference is the waistband and straight leg. You should give them a try. I love them. I also recommend going with the black and bubbilicious band vs. the gray, it is so cute!

Does sizing up help with the WWA "sausage" issue? I tried it on in black in the fall and I thought it looked okay (I'm 5'11" so no issues on length for me..)but am worried about the lighter colors. If it comes out online I'm tempted to order 2 sizes...

Momof5 said...

hey, did anyone else get athletas summer catalog -- they have really pretty dresses and some have the bra pockets -- why cant lulu offer something like them instead of their plain dress they have in black or white -- boring -- for sumer I like to jazz it up a little!!

@black pants -- i feel the same way - the other color bottoms show every flaw and sweat! I too stick to the black for workouts -- i save the colors for the run shorts -- that are looser and not as flaw-enhancing!!

also I am not a fan of the WWA -- the proportions just look off to me --

Erin said...

I wear a 4 in the remix but I sized up to a 6 for the WWA to avoid the 'sausage' feeling. I'm 5'4" and I did think when I was trying on the WWA that it was too long for my frame but a educator came over and told me to unzip the bottom of the zipper (zipper pulls go both ways in the WWA) just above where the ribbed part stops and it looks WAY better. I's really nice from behind with the bum covered and for those of us with shorter torsos unzipping from bottom up a bit really helps. And when you sit at a desk you can unzip up to your tummy and you don't get the zipper buckling issue. Anyways long story short is between the educator and the back view I was sold on the jacket. I didn't do anything crazy like get a color but I really like it.

Pattybea said...

Agree about gray--I am a robust size 4 and when I tried on the current coal grooves--whoa--not good. I do okay with the denims and am borderline with my heathered charcoal grooves. But black is best...

LuluAddict said...

Coal pants will show sweat. Mine got a bit of a "shadow" when I did spin in them.

My Wear With All comes down to below my rear and I'm 5'5". I rarely wear it zipped up but like to wear it open so I don't worry about the "sausage" look.

The Run top the girl mentioned to me wasn't the Energy that was briefly on the website but some other name so it is a totally new top.

The astro pants are also a couple inches Longer then the reg length Grooves.

Dori said...

LOVE the Chirp Wear With All! I want one! Also need that Bubbalicious headband! My friend got me a gift card there for my birthday -- GREAT friend!

I'm so happy to see that the WWA is back. I wish they'd made them in Lagoon. They've pushed that color so much this spring, that there is a lot of it in my closet. It'd be nice to have a jacket to match. (I've seen the Remix and Fun Times Jacket in Lagoon, I seem to recall, but the WWA is the only French Terry hoodie I'll wear!) I guess my wallet is lucky that the grey one is the only one from this run that both wows me and is different enough from the last season's colors.
