Pics - Free 2 Be Jacket, Get Started Jacket, & More

The Free 2 Be Jacket looks pretty cute. I'll definitely have to try it on.

I didn't realize the Get Started jacket was made of luon. It also has a mesh back. It's interesting looking but still a bit too short. I like the Passion and Black versions the best. I'll have to try it on in the store but I'm not really in a market for a new luon jacket unless it's really eye-catching or offers me something my other jackets don't have. That being said, I love my new Principle Jacket. I don't mind the shorter length at all. It gives me a little extra coverage on my shoulders and chest.
Zoom Bike Shorts


More Run: Like The Wind Singlets. I'd like to see these modeled on a bustier woman just to see how it looks but I suspect it won't look that great. It does nothing for these women.

Pep Tank and Zoom Crops

More Elevate pants - it doesn't seem to fit so well through the crotch area.

Not a fan of the Get It Started Jacket- why not just make the Define jacket in more colors? Like the Pep tank and Zoom Shorts. Wow, really not liking the Run: Like The Wind Singlets- I don't think those look good on ANYONE. (Loot, here they come!)

I was really excited about the Elevate Pants when I first saw someone on FB post a link to the product notification photo. I am a fiend for wide-legged, flowing pants. However, in every real-life photo I've seen of these, they look so wrinkly and sloppy! Not sure I'm keen on the pleats or the fit in the crotch area, either. Hmm. I'm hoping my local store gets these so I can try them on.

The pep tank looks great, and in passion too. I really need my stores (NJ) to get it so I can try it on!

Ordered the Free 2 Be jacket yesterday through US GEC in passion (never know if it is going to come to my store or online). Love my Fun Times jacket and hope I like this as much.

To ojodeazul: I got the pep tank in black at my local Lulu (its the only color they had) and I think I'm really going to love it...it's perfect with the Ta Ta Tamer. I think passion would be super cute too.

I agree with the poster that asked why not just make more Define jackets in more colors instead of another luon jacket? I would love to see the defines in as many color options as the remixes. People are ALWAYS asking for more define colors...

The Bike shorts look promising -- it looks like maybe a 4 inch inseam -- i like the effect on the leg -- other than that -- just eh -- the free 2 be is just ok -- I really don't like that run like the wind and hope that isn't a trend -- its not flattering on any of the pictures Ive seen -

The Free2B jacket is too much like the Flashback Pullover. Same style of neck, same front pockets, same kind of hood, same material. I would like to try on the Elevate Pants, in coal, if I can find them.

The free 2 be jacket is really growing on me, but the last thing I need is a glorified hoodie. The sweater addict in me is pining, though. The Get It Started jacket...if I were 20lbs thinner I'd be thinking about it, but I don't think it's for us curvy gals.

Do you ladies notice Lululemon designers seem to release 'waves' of similar styles? Last fall/winter they released a lot of long hoodies, jackets and pullovers (Gather Together, WWA, Feel the Love, Competition, etc) and now for Spring and summer they are coming out with a lot of cropped jackets (Principle, Purity, Exhale, Get it Started)..it's almost as though in their design meetings, they figure "do something very different!" I wonder why..especially if their customers are screaming for more LONGER style jackets? Customers have been clamoring for the WWA jackets and at least once a week or every other week, someone posts a comment about hoping for a longer remix hoodie. Please make longer jackets, Lululemon!

@lulumom - I totally agree. You would think they would go for diversity in their designs - one long jacket, one short, etc. It would seem to make sense rather than releasing very similar designs that compete against each other in the store. There seems to be lack of a coordinated vision at the top of the food chain.

Lulumom, I noticed that too. Almost jacket that came out this season is cropped. Too many of it, in my opinion. I have had enough of that. I thought Lulu was supposed to design stuff for every shape and form. I am on the hunt for more luon tops. I know there are issues on piling on luon but so far it has never affected any of my tops. Currently the only luon/luon light tops are the scoop neck and the CRB. Luxtreme or other fabrics does not do it for me. Somehow luon is so flattering on the body and hides the bumps and lumps plus its so comfy. I hope Lulu comes out with more luon tops.

I want to like a new jacket... but the Get Started is rough looking! I got the Principal on sale too (gray/white). Love it. I've already worn it to work and the gym! Love your blog. Don't stop!!!

I love the look of the run zoom bike shorts, anyone know what the length is on the inseam? Are they at least as long as the groove shorts? Love them...I didn't care for the get it started jacket because of the huge mesh back.

I have been LIVING in my 'Free to Be' jackets...I have them in four colors! They are so amazingly comfortable and I love how they look. If it comes out in more colors I like...I'm going to run out of money!
