From my Product Notice - Light Up Tank



Product Features:


  • Let your light shine with this medium support, performance tank
  • Luxtreme™ feels silky smooth on, and is light weight with inherent wicking performance to keep you dry and comfortable
  • Reflective features keep you safe on night rides and runs
  • Body mapping mesh panels to keep you cool while you heat up
  • Anti-sitnk circle mesh liner with pockets for removable cups
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance
  • Colors: Wish blue, Black, and Pig 
  • Sizes 4-12
This came in my product notice for Santa Monica so I assume it'll arrive at the Newport store in a couple of days. 

It's cute but I don't think it'll work for me. I doubt it has enough support (or even cup space) and it looks rather low cut. Do you runners see it being very functional? It looks long and snug fitting.

Yea, to look at this tank I would have classified it as a yoga tank not a running tank just because it looks like it is not super supportive and looks very long (ie coverage for poses). I'm sure it would work for me for running as I'm small busted so I don't need a ton of support. I really love the look of this. I think I'll for sure get the bold blue. (snug light pink luxtreme might not be that forgiving visually). I love the light pink/grey bra version. It looks so pretty.

I have small breasts, but Lulu's tanks with built in bras are still never enough compression/support for me to run in. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the straps are always a bit too long on me. Cute top though - I'll definitely be trying it out when it hits the stores here.

As a C cup this would only work as a run tank for me with 3 sports bras underneath :(
It's very pretty though, I as well love the bra in Pig/Grey. I would wear this to yoga for sure.

I wonder if the tank has built in support b/c the prod nod doesn't say there is room for cups.. Super cute and love the idea of reflective details.. I would be all over that.

I just got word from a store manager at my local Lulu that there'll be another big markdown again tomorrow. Last week, a whole bunch of things got marked down as some of you already know, but there's more coming so keep a look out at your local store! I was told that a whole bunch of Namaste wraps and Run Swiftly Racerbacks were on the list to get marked down.

Yeah, I saw the Namaste Wrap marked down at my store, but I don't remember how much..

@anon 7:19 - Did they mention if the halter hoodie would be marked down. I'm thinking of getting it but only on markdown.

Anon : 7.19 pm - Which store?

I can't imagine wearing this low cut tank out running in the evenings, let alone the daytime. It's very pretty, but not enough support, and way too low cut for leaning over on my bike. I wouldn't want to cause any accidents...

This store is in Honolulu. If I find out any more info on what else is being marked down, I'll post it!

LuluAddict said...

I wonder what else could be marked down except maybe Mynah jackets. I wouldn't mind the Shanti crops being repriced a lot lower. Maybe the Sun Salutation tanks. I'm dying for the Coal with Heathered Wee Stripe Define to be marked down but I know that's an impossible hope.

The Berkeley store has marked down Namastes.

Pima cotton dreses, Astros pants, and wunder grooves are also getting marked down.

I too am also wanting/waiting for the halter hoodie to be marked down. Please ladies whatever you see..please post! So then we can complain to lulu how unfair it is for us who dont live near a store! ahahah I'm hoping for a big LOOT upload in the next 2 weeks!

I'm just not in love with luxtreme for running in the summer. I so prefer the silverescent or even circle mesh. As you have pointed out before luluaddict, luxtreme w/o cups is not good as it doesn't leave much to the imagination up top...

cjrun said...

So it does have cups. disregard my previous comment...
Still pretty sure I wouldn't run in this sans second bra underneath.

momof5 said...

Can you guys that are finding new loot --post the stores as well as the deals? Thanks!!!

Just stopped by the lulu in Mpls.--the halter hoodies were $29, but namaste was still full price.
I picked up the on the go bag in blue and a CRB in wish blue. Also grabbed organic wunder under crops for $49.

I have the Run: Zoom singlet (coal wee stripe --> luxtreme) and I do not at all think it is unflattering (that's too many negatives...)

What I mean to say is, I think the luxtreme Zoom singlet with a nice supportive bra for running underneath - looks good on!

The Pasadena, CA store has alot of pants marked down today - some groove pants, wunder unders, Gather & Crow crops, astro crops/pants. Also saw some tata tamers. They also have received shipments of the well-loved No Limit tank in black, black/purple, black/blue and pig pink/coal (not on sale of course).

The Honolulu store has Namaste wraps, run swiftly tanks, run energy tanks, zoom knee shorts, power y's, gather and crow crops, astro pants/crops, halter hoodies, and various bras on markdown They even had a special between the hours of 10-12. People who are those sizes could buy things at $19 a piece! They said they had SO much of those sizes in stock that they decided to have that special deal.

LuluAddict said...

@ Anon - Re: the Honolulu store having a special between 10 and 12 for those sizes. How did that store tell you? Via email? Does that store have a Facebook page? I did a search but couldn't find it. Thanks!

They do have an FB page. I think you have to type in Lululemon Ala Moana. Let me know if that works. The special for those sizes, however, were between the hours of 10-12 today. I guess they were trying to do a size 10 and 12 sale during the hours of 10 and 12!

Luluaddict, I forgot to answer your other questions. I found out about it because I went this morning to shop the sale. The educators at our store are super nice and helpful. She said that if I knew anyone with those sizes to spread the word. This is the only Lululemon we have in the state thus far.

Thanks, anon , I found the Facebook page.
