More Pics - seek the peak jacket, more lulucrombie, run;Zoom Singlet, seek the peak pant

Potion Energy Short Sleeve with trite Nike-ish Lulu-crombie Phrase
I wonder if any I Just Wanna Run or Sleeveless Energy Racerbacks will show up in the Potion Purple.


Zoom Singlet with 50 Rep Bra - I am dying to see the Heathered Coal Wee Stripe version
This is the same woman who posted it on Facebook so she is not a Lululemon educator. I think it looks nice on her. I would like to see a rear pic to see how the bra looks under it.

Half Moon Tank with more disappointing bust support/shaping

I can't wait to try the run:zoom top in angel. I have an angel CRB but want another tank in that color. I didn't like any of the other ones and almost settled for another power Y. I like the power y, but it's not my favorite. I don't know if I'll like the luxtreme. I had a swift tank and hated it. I felt hot in it and didn't like how heavy the mesh was in the back once you were sweating. I know this one has circle mesh, which I like.
Luluaddict - You've said you like the luxtreme, can you tell me what you like about it?

The jacket could have been cute, had they not f*&ked up the sleeves. Another poorly executed design ala the design interns, no doubt.
AND more Lulu-crombie...g-r-e-a-t. I can't wait to see the next Lulu ad on the back of Yoga Journal...maybe it will feature some ripped 18 year old boy toy ;-).

I love the run energy ss, but why do they have to put the wording on it? The ONE new SS top they come out with a they keep putting slogans on it! Ugh!

@ anon - I like the luxtreme Push UR limits tank for spin class because it is lightweight (although the heathered coal wee stripe is thicker) and wicks sweat away well. I'm not a fan of the Swift either - I felt hotter in it, too. I think the back on the Push UR Limits is more exposed and that is what really helps keep me cool - I like anything where my upper back is uncovered.

The only shirts that I wear with words on the front are my kid's sports leagues/schools and my Alma mater. I'd like to request Syracuse University, please.

I find luxtreme rides up for running- unless it is a more flared fit around the stomach/hips. The Sport Signa top is a great luxtreme piece for running. I found the pep tank was too straight a fit and worried it would bunch up unattractively as I ran.

I love the Push UR Limits- and I didn't like the Swift either. More flattering fit and the back is fantastic.

Wow is this stuff ugly...IMO...

Another dissapointing week. I think we have said it all before. Lulu should just stick to the basics and just re-create the older collection. This is getting ridiculous. From bad to worse. Sorry for being blunt, but who on earth would let these designs be sold to the public?

LuluAddict said...

CJ Run is right about luxtreme riding up when running (or walking, for me) if it is too tight. I only use my luxtreme for spin, the elliptical, and weight lifting. I've owned a couple of long sleeve luxtreme tops that I wore for walks but I'd always have to pull them down as I walked.

Anon - Have you tried the Swiftly tops or silverescent? The Swiftly is probably the top that will keep you the coolest for a sweaty work out. I don't really care for the style of the Swiftly tank on me but I wear it to keep cool. I also really like the Run: Energy Sleeveless racerback tanks and the I Just Wanna Run tank. I wear the All Out bra under both of those.

@Luluaddict - I have tried on the swiftly tanks but the arm area is so open. The 4 fits too tight and the 6 feels too big. I have a ton of CRB's that I wear for spin. I also wear scoopnecks, inner strength and power y's to do other cardio & weights. I want to give this new one a try but was nervous about luxtreme based on my experience with the swift tank. I just thought it made me hot because of the luxtreme. When this tank arrives, I'll try it on along with the push ur limits, it seems people really like that one. I really need another tank in angel blue. I tried the sun salutation and like the fit but didn't like the stripes. I liked that it was luon light, it did fit good, if I could deal with the stripes. I also like the fit of the half moon crop but am waiting to try the new run:with it. I don't run, only indoor spin & weights so I shouldn't have the problem of luxtreme riding up. Thanks for all your input.

Bleh... Tried on the Sneak a Peak stuff yesterday. The jacket was beyond bad. Though if it wasn't for the sleeves it would have had the potential to be nice. The Shorts are really nice but I would rather them in another material. I find the swift kinda holds odd shapes. The pants are ok, again if you like the swift fabric... the white was RAELLY transparent through. So I walked out of the store with the Foxy plaid Groovy run shorts and the potion purple baseball hat... My bank account mostly remained intact due to the lack of anything remotely interesting which is fine with me... I buy too much lulu as is, this ugly design phase is really helping. :)

those pants look horrible on that model. her butt & legs look huge...come on lulu, get it together. I fell in love with your clothes once upon a time, what gives now?

Just made a visit to my local Lulu and grabbed two more pairs of tracker shorts (one in the cutest purple/lime plaid), and the run energy SS in baby blue. They had the potion purple with the lime writing run energy ss in stock, and it was just heartbreaking to see it in person. SUCH a pretty purple color completely ruined with that hideous writing. The girls at my local Lulu are all very sweet, and one girl listened to me complain and complain about that writing (she was very nice). I explained to her that I couldn't buy it because I'm not much of a runner and would feel like a total fraud wearing it. She agreed (I'm sure she also thought I was a little nuts). Anyways, I would have bought that shirt in a heartbeat if it was plain.

That sneak the peak stuff has loot written all over.. what the heck is the design team doing!!!??!
I would love a plain potion purple SS, why the ugly and half-missing writing...

Zanna said...

The Run Energy SS also comes in Savage Green but with ugly white wordings..aaargh...what a waste.
