Today's Upload

Run: Zoom Knee Short
Anyone get anything from today's upload? The only item I would be interested in is the Run: Zoom Knee Short. However, I already have the Biker Groove short (which were $48 instead of the $74 for the Zooms) and a pair of Passion crops so I don't really need the knee short. I was hoping to see some Angel blue tanks. Maybe Push UR Limits, which has become one of my favorite new tanks, or an Energy Sleeveless tank in Angel blue. Oh well, next week.

I have to Zoom knee shorts in my cart, but I cannot decided if I think they are worht $74 dollars!

I like the idea of the Zoom shorts, but even on the model they are so tight at the knee that they are giving her a sort of knee muffin top. (Do you still call it a muffin top if its at the knee rather than the 'top'? Whatever. You all know what I mean.) Anyway, if it's doing that to a model's knee, it is not going to do pretty things to my own. I'll try them on when they hit the stores, but I do not have high hopes.

I saw absolutely nothing I liked in today's upload, except for the deep purple hoodie I already own. Bummer.

I thought today's upload was a huge snoozeville. Went to my local store and they got a whole bunch of new CRB colors: angel blue, passion purple, lime and the pretty blue under the angel blue define in the post below (luluaddict you were wondering the color and the code is LBOY. Also Flow Y bras in all those colors. I got all the CRBs except the lime (I've got CRB sickness!) and the angel flow y and also new static charcoal (the softer/shiner one) flow y bra. They had the new jackets with the mesh back (forget the name) - tried it on for fun and it was very ugly/unflattering (even the educators were commenting that they didn't like it). They got in the new savasana scarfs which are fabulous. I already have black and got the blue : )

@pilatesmom - What color is LBOY? Lazy boy? ;-) I am glad you said that is a new color, because the Lake Oswego store, where I got that photo, thought she was wearing an older top. I really like the deeper blue. It looks similar to Ocean Blue or maybe Bright Blue.

Did you see any other tanks in the new colors or just CRBs?

@ojodeazul - My Biker Groove shorts give me knee muffin top, too. However, it's the price I pay for have them stay in place during spin. If you are in Canada, the Canadian side still has the Biker Groove shorts. I like power luxtreme well enough but since I don't run the compression is kind of lost of me for spin class. I don't know if it is worth $26 more compared to the biker grooves.

I was hoping angel blue and potion purple to make an appearance in some tanks as well. Boo. I like the zoom knee shorts, but they seem a bit pricey!

LBOY is little boy blue...I think.

I like the idea of the zoom knee shorts too, but wish they were perhaps a bit shorter (not as short as the zoom shorts, though...those look like they would be booty shorts on me...not pretty). I really like the look of the run energy short sleeve, but am so confused about sizing (I remember how big the run for fun ss was). I called my local Lulu to see if they were getting it in...they think they'll get it next Tuesday, so I'm going to hold out until then....

SO, no, nothing for me in this week's upload...

I have the groovy run short in the passion foxy plaid and the modern tank in the passion in my cart -- still deciding -- doss the modern tank run TTS or is it bigger -- it looks bigger on the model -- is it similar to the CRBS -- so bummed there was no angel blue tanks!!

I looked at the zoom knee also -- but it doesn't look very flattering to me either -- and it looks almost the same length as the astro crop --which I love -- I hope they do an astro with the angel blue/lime

Oh -- could you imagine how pretty the angel or the darker blue would be in the Deep V -- why did they discontinue their most popular tank?

I did buy the run: zoom knee shorts because I have no running shorts for summer/outside running and I am hoping these will stay in place and not give me the knee bulge. If they do then they will go back! I wish I could have gotten the Biker Grooves when those were out but I missed them ;( I am not a fan of the luxtreme fabric and would have much rather had the luon. I'll let you all know what I think when they get here~ it usually takes a week as I am in Massachusetts.

@momof5. I'm a 6 in the CRB (and pretty much all tanks) and I take a 4 in the modern racerback and it is still plenty roomy/stretchy. @luluaddict: I saw the Y tank in angel blue and the Y tank in small turf green/white stripe (same stripe as the coal bubblicious Y). They also had all the new vita tanks out but I didn't even try it on - don't like the looks of it.

Chelsea said...

I got my first pair of empower crops today in the black/wee stripe. Just a basic and I've heard such good things about the empower for running, spinning, etc. @pilatesmom - the angel blue CRB - how see through is it, if at all? I'm in Pittsburgh, don't have any stores anywhere close to try on. Everything else today was lackluster and what is up with the bras that are practically nipple covers (vita, layer me, etc) Those bras don't look like they would hold up an a-cup in any level of activity!

Momof5 said...

@pilatesmom--Thanks!!

Today's upload...yawn

LuluAddict said...

@pilatesmom - what store do you shop at that you saw all the new stuff? I am trying to guage when it will show up at my store.

pilatesmom said...

@chelsea: the angel blue CRB is not at all see-through.
@luluaddict: my closest store (and the one I was at today) is OakBrook Center (western chicago suburb). that is the store I frequent on a weekly basis. Sometimes I make it downtown to the Halsted store where they have a wider selection.

Chelsea said...

@pilatesmom - much appreciated!!

I have been hoping for a longer running short from Lulu for the longest time. I bought a pair of luxtreme running crops a year or two ago, and they're incredibly comfortable and have held up beautifully, but they're a little too warm in the summer, and I can't run in short shorts.

If the Zoom shorts had been online or in my local store last week, I would have bought them in a heartbeat - I have a race this weekend and have been looking for new shorts. I ended up buying a pair of CW-X shorts instead; they're the same price as the Zooms, but seem much more thoughtfully designed and supportive. Time will tell how I like them.

I may still buy the Zoom shorts, because I love the luxtreme material so much. I might wait to see if they're marked down.

I would say the lower cut bras are perfect for low impact activities like yoga and if you have a small chest size. I'm barely a B cup and I like the style of the Layer Me Bra..worn it for tennis and it supports great. It's also good to wear under tanks that have the X back as the straps are skinny. If I was a C cup or larger I wouldn't bother with those bras (layer me, hot yogi, or vita).

Gel said...

I really wanted to get the black/coal reversible Wunder Unders! The Power Y tank in Potion Purple is in loot for $39 now, too, which I'd really love to get to match my Potion Purple Define Jacket. Sadly, I've spent way too much on Lulu this month, so I had to pass these ones up. :(

I am really bummed that a few weeks ago I bought a pair of black Boogie On shorts for hot yoga, and then today, Lulu came out with the Zoom Shorts. I prefer Luxtreme over Luon for hot yoga, but I can't justify having two pairs of black short shorts, so I'll just stick with the Boogie Ons.

LuluAddict said...

@ Gel - I have a couple of pairs of Tall Boogie on shorts and love them. The luon is super light. I think they would probably be cooler than power luxtreme. I find the power luxtreme very thick.
