New Items - Stratus Wunder Under Crops, Hip Halter Tank, Renew Dirt Dress, New Colors

Stratus Wunder Under Crops - Black, Wish Blue, and Citron

Stratus Wunder Under Crops - Coal with Pig

Hip Halter Tank
The Hip Halter is a really cute tank that was also released last summer. I really wanted to like this tank. It's a looser fitting tank through the mid section that only goes up to a 10 but the cups are on the smaller side so I spilled out all over the place.  Also, the neck strap created a lot of pressure on my neck.  The design looks unchanged from last year but I'll have to try it on next time I am in the store.

New Colors - Citron Cool Racerback with Cool Cool Racerback underneath
Citron looks pretty nice. I think the Cool is a minty-blue that looks similar to Aruba from last summer.

New Cool Racerback Colors - Electric Orange, Cool, Wish Blue, Citron (not sure about this, it almost looks like Mac N Cheese), and Pig

Two pics of the Electric Orange Cool Racerback - I think the top is more like the real life color - it glows

Renew Dirt Dress - Coal and Pig (it also reverses)

New Power Ys - Coal, Citron with Coal, Cool with Coal, Pig with Coal, Wish Blue

Hot Hot Shorts - Pig and Classic Sport Gray

New Flow Ys - Wish Blue, Citron, Pig

I think I like Wish Blue. I'll have to see what else is coming out in it. Citron doesn't look too bad either. I read there is a Push UR Limits in the new colors. Most of these photos are from Canadian stores. None of my Product Alerts mentioned the new colors so they are hitting Canada first.  However, a reader commented some of the items are in the US, now, too.

 Men's shirt in Party Pink - not sure if we'll see women's stuff in this color

Stratus Wunder Under Crops - Coal with Pig
I love these - so cute!

Hip Halter Tank
This looks cute! Definitely excited about it.

New CRB colors - Lovin the Citron and Electric Orange!

New Power Ys - lovin all of them with coal trim!

Hot Hot Shorts - Love the colors but not the style

New Flow Ys - Wish Blue, Citron, Pig
These are cute, but I already have a couple flow y's and most of my tops have the built in bra, so I doubt I will end up buying anymore flow y's anytime soon. Too many other items on my wishlist.

Any idea when we can expect these to hit the US/website?

The stratus crops look cute and I love wunder unders. But, a few years ago lulu did a stratus style crop with a flared bottom and I didn't like the feeling of all the seaming on my tush and the waistband was a single layer (not double layer with pocket like the current wunders or grooves) and resulted in a bit of a digging in sensation at the waist. I'm liking citron, cool and wish.

I really like the wish blue.

Think I am in the minority, but I really love the Electric Orange.. that looks to be perfect for my early morning runs...

These are in the US (at least the hip halter and stratus crops)--and actually at the Newport Beach store--another new color is party pink.

What does party pink look like? Please describe.

luna said...

I really like electric orange too! Also flow y bra in citron. Will be great for layering :)

LuluAddict said...

Is party pink a woman's color?

I like the electric orange too -- its my fave of the new colors -- although I will have to see it in person -- i think it will look nice with a navy color -- the other colors look like a rehash of bold blue and faded zap -- i can't wait to see how the electric orange translates into the swiftly fabric!

There is something about the yellow/gray combo that gets me every time. I loved the coal/antidote, the coal/faded zap....now I'm eyeing up the citron/coal combo. I have to ask myself how much of this same color combo a girl really needs. But it's the addiction that keeps me coming back for more. I told myself I'd pay down some Lulu debt before buying anything else, and here comes citron/coal to tempt me.

I went to my local Lulu today and saw the Hip Halter tank in pig pink and wish blue. It pretty much looks the same as last year. An educator did point out, however, that the tank is made of light luon as compared to whatever it was made out of last year (regular luon?). I tried it on and almost bought it. As Luluaddict stated in the explanation of this tank, it pulled on my neck as well. I didn't mind the bra cups because I'm a B cup anyways. It is on the longer side, though, and I'd definitely get it hemmed a couple of inches shorter.

LuluAddict said...

I looked up my old review of the Hip Halter - it was made of regular luon. Also, I did get a hold of a size 12 from eBay but found it to small in the chest so I had to resell it.

I had a pair of crops that although they weren't the stratus were similar with the diagonal stitching -- and I ended up selling them because the stitching was so annoying while working out -- I forget the name of the crops -- I would have to wait until any reviews came out about these -- they look cute -- but the excessive stitching might be an issue!

Bought the hip halter yesterday, it's so nice in the luon light. It does fit small in the chest but the neckline is so flattering adn my bust looks great in it. I love the electric orange and citron. The electric orange is like a florescent cantaloupe. It's very nice and will work well with coal and navy. I forgot to ask the fitting room attendent for bra cookies though! :-(

Neph said...

Am I the only one that really dislikes the new colors? I hope some additional colors get added for summer. Kind of disappointing.

LuluAddict said...

@neph - I'm not that excited about the new colors, to be honest. All these colors were out last year - electric orange, neon-y yellow and royal blue. I also prefer a hot pink to a pastel pink. Whether I buy much will depend on what the latest tank designs look like. I know there are new Push UR Limits coming out but the Run: Zoom Singlet has replaced the Push as my latest favorite tank. So, if a new Zoom singlet comes out in the Wish Blue, I'll probably get it.

Becky said...

@lululemon addict, how did you find the Run: Zoom Singlet fit around the tummy area?

ojodeazul said...

@Becky, I am not LuluAddict, but I do love the Run Zoom Singlet as much as she does, I have it in 4 colors. I find it fits loose, but not baggy in the tummy area.

momof5 said...

I think i am in the minority -- but I do not like the Run Zoom Singlet -- I tried it in savage and --it slipped down in front on me -- -- i ordered a savage stripe power y instead and LOVE it -- and I am not a fan of the power Y, maybe before I was more in between sizes -- but it fits me pretty well -- I prefer the built in bra, instead of layering over a bra -- then again I am also small chested --

BONUS -- I ordered the power Y online -- received it today and it had CUPS -- was in shock when I felt them thru the bag!! Maybe they are revising their policy! Maybe online will get the good markdowns soon too instead of limiting the to stores!

LuluAddict said...

The Zoom fits looser through the tummy but the Angel luon will reveal all if you get in a clingy position because it's rather thin. The striped versions and the black one seem to be made of thinner material.

I think the Power Ys are the only tank that automatically come with the cups.

That new CRB could be mac n cheese. Just got a new product email for my Princeton store saying they've got Mac N Cheese in (amongst other colors) for the CRB.

@Becky,
I find that the Zoom Singlet fits looser but not baggy in the tummy as well. It's not skin tight. I'm usually a 6 in tops, and that was the case for this one too. Not the best picture (and I wasn't wearing a sports bra that fit well with the tank) but here it is on me:
