Push UR Limits Update - The Built In Bra Is Now Adjustable


I didn't realize the latest batch of Push UR Limits now has an adjustable bra inside. I've tried these on in the Inner Strength and one other tank (I can't remember which now) and you would think you'd feel the hook at your side but you don't.  I can't say that I think the built in bra is too tight (like it is in Power Y) but it's a nice feature. I've been reaching for my Push UR Limit tanks a lot lately but I don't know if I love the latest batch of colors all that much. My favorite would probably be the Purple Crush but I am hoping we'll see a Coal Strata Stripe Push UR Limits.

OH that's awesome! I love the adjustable built-in bra in my Sun Salutation tank and couldn't understand why they don't put this in more tops. And I love the Push tank so this make getting another (I currently have two) much more enticing. I hope this style remains a core top like the Power Y & CRB tanks are. Side note... on the Push I'm really liking, not only the contrasting straps, but the contrasting circle mesh panel down the back, hoping they'll do this on more colors.

just an FYI and general complaint - I live in Wisconsin and the only store I have is a showroom, so they don't have a lot of sizes or colors, and I end up buying online and returning alot. My friend just went to the store today to return, and the associate there asked if she was friends with me and said that the returns counted against the store. I can't believe how unprofessional and rude this was, and I'm also getting very frustrated with the poor quality, especially with the new run swiftly.
Sorry about the ranting, but I'm very offended and may have to look elsewhere for clothes

Anon 1:07 pm Which WI store is this? I'm in WI too (Madison) and I've heard other complaints about the Milwaukee store so I'm wondering if this is them. If so, I think I'll avoid visiting there in the future. The Madison showroom just opened and I've already returned a few online purchases (I buy a lot online) and I haven't heard boo from them but I would be so disappointed if they don't turn into a fabulous store.

From what I have read about the showrooms they are kind of expected to lose money and are there to prep the area with Lululemon so they can open a store. If you read the quarterly reports (you can do a search on this blog) you'll see that they don't expect them to be profitable. It's just TFB if the returns count against the store. That store mananger is there to grow the brand in the area so she needs to get her sales up to compensate for on line returns.

You should write to Lululemon and complain about this treatment. They will chastise the store. I know the one time I bitched about a store not having an item out on the floor after putting it in their product alert email, their next PA email said "will be on the floor at xxx time"

After what some people have written about the new Sri Lankan Swiftlys fraying and running I won't buy them and that is why I don't write about them that much on this blog anymore. There are still some Israeli made ones available on the eBay.

My showroom store in Alberta Canada is terrible. She refuses to take online returns and even tried to tell me that "anything online is just really old lulu stock" while her stuff is old and she doesn't know the product line at all. I wish they would close the showroom and put in a real store.

Sorry for the rant

@ anon 1:32 - A showroom can refuse on-line returns? Did you complain to Lululemon about that? I'd be majorly pissed if I had to pay for return shipping.

This place is a strategic sales center, I was assuming that was the same as a showroom??

A showroom sells only Lululemon and is open part time, like Fri, Sat, and Sundays. A strategic sales center is like a yoga studio or gym that carries Lululemon in their shop and it could be one of several brands. I tend to think a strategic sale partner is not obligated to take internet returns.

thanks for all your comments, and the store is in Milwaukee, and I've had numerous comments like "what do you do" and "do you return to other stores too".
anyway, i know we are just talking about clothes and i feel silly getting so pissed, but i feel better knowing that others have had similiar experiences
i'll go to chicago from now on

@anon 2:17pm I don't think that it's silly to get po'd by these kinds of off-putting comments when returning online purchases to a local showroom. I don't live by any stores/showrooms, but if I did and those things were said to me, I'd be upset too. Especially when considering the price for Lululemon products and also the loyalty of their customers. This isn't like buying something here and there from Nike or Adidas, I tend to think that most Lulu consumers get pretty sucked in, which means we're all dropping a pretty big (and frequent) buck. If the showrooms don't have products that you're looking for, but the website does, well of course you'll buy online and return what doesn't work in person. Why pay s&h or keep something you don't love? Because for the money, you'd better love your purchases! I don't think the way you feel is silly at all! I love Lululemon, but that's just annoying.
