Got My Circle Mesh SE Cool Racerback Today

My black circle mesh SE Cool Racerback arrived today. I think I am in love! The fit is the exactly same as the regular CRB. I overlayed my new tank to an older CRB and the outline was the same. The circle mesh version is very lightweight. I cannot wait to wear this to spin class tomorrow. I also plan on wearing this tank outside the gym on hot summer days. I like it so much I was almost tempted (again) to order the white version but then I tried on my white Run: Like the Wind tank to check the opaqueness. I can read the Champion logo on the back of my bra through the white circle mesh so white is a no-go for me. Lot of lululemon tanks and tops have circle mesh inserts so I know they have the material to make Circle Mesh CRBs in coal, potion, savage, angel, bubbilicious, passion, mac n cheese, and lots of other colors. Get sewing, Lululemon!!!

I think I will have to order a black Circle Mesh CRB. I was waiting to see what the reviews would be before I ordered.

I just went to my store and got two no limit tanks, black w/lolo purple & black w/oasis. Define jacket in Wish Blue.

Two halter hoodies, black & white w/savage for $29 each. Run Swiftly tank in sports grey $29 & Swiftly SS in lagoon $39.

I didn't buy these but the Run: Zoom knee short was marked down to $49.

I'm still deciding if I want the new wish dip dyed On the move or on the go gym bag. It seems so large compared to a classy classic bag, which is what I am used to.

You are so lucky to get such fast delivery! My orders take at least a week to arrive. Glad you like your new tank. I am always worried the CRB's will be too snug across my tummy...

LOVE the CRBs, they are my favourite tanks for working out and everyday... i think i might need a circle mesh one now! but i'm gonna wait to see if it comes out in new colours... i have way too many black tanks already, and refuse to wear white when working out b/c it looks see-through and gets dirty too easily. let us know how cooling it is after you work out in it!

Hi Lulu Addict,

I cannot tell from any pictures, but is the the Classy Classic Gym Bag too big to use as a day-to-day purse?

Thanks!

Thanks for the info on the circle mesh! If this is a light enough material, I may be able to overlook the fact that it is black... as we are headed into another weekend with mid 90s temps. GROSS.

My local store posted this on facebook today: "Come on by and check out some of our surprises or try on some of our new colors."

Ah! I want to know what the surprises are! I was just there late yesterday afternoon and there was nothing new... I don't want to be a total stalker though. The reason I'd go in person is so I can have it sooner! It takes me a week to get things ordered online. I was talking to one of the girls at the store yesterday who said they probably wouldn't get anything new til next week. And being a smaller store, they didn't expect the circle mesh racerbacks anytime soon... Boo.

Think I may place an order for a black circle mesh CRB (I haven't tried these on before, hope they're TTS) and one of the new colors of Speed Shorts - either white/wish blue or wish blue/citron (even though the trim looks white).

@ Anon - The Classy Classic Gym Bag is really big. I have a photo of a woman holding it on May 29th. http://luluaddict.blogspot.com/2010/05/pics-still-pant-coal-with-heathered.html

I got CRB in Citron at my local lulu and ordered Electric Orange online today. I'm clearly obsessed with neon colors :) Lime never really work for my skin color but Citron looked good. A bit more green-ish than Faded Zap.

I saw Angel Blue stride jacket. Very pretty but didn't feel like picking up a jacket.

@ Luna - I like the photos I've seen of Citron, too. I'm hoping a Run: Zoom Singlet shows up in that or Wish blue. The Zoom Singlet is probably my most favorite tank to come out this year but I know others have had fit issues with it.

I'll have to check Citron in person because those greeny-yellows are a tough color to pull off. Electric Orange looks really pretty if you have a bit of a tan.

@ livi - Oh yeah, I get a white tank dirty every time I wear it. That's because I run errands or do stuff around the house before I change when I get home from the gym. The good thing about Lululemon fabrics is that they are really good at letting go of stains, especially if you wash them right away.

I am so bad with white tanks also -- coffee drips every time!! plus I personally don't like how the white washes up -- no matter how careful I am it always seems to get dingy! I love how the bright white looks -- but sadly -- that only lasts a few washes!!!

mollywaffles said...

I agree about white...
Hehe- whenever I heard the word 'dingy' i think about that Cheer detergent commercial with the British woman.

@LuluAddict-
Any chance you've worn this yet? Curious to know how you like it.
I'm thinking I'll try one in black...but if one comes out in other colors, maybe it's worth hanging on for a little bit.
