Repetition Tank - Try On Report and a Major Rant About Changes in Black Luon
MAJOR RANT: I've been toying with the idea of getting some new luon crops (I haven't bought any in two or so years) so today I tried on Wunder Under Crops, Relaxed Fit Crops, and Gather and Crow Crops. I was dismayed at how itchy and scratchy the luon felt, like my old cheapo Marika and Danskin gym pants. One reason I fell in love with Lululemon was the tactile feel of luon - it was soft and soothing and felt like brushed cotton. I don't think you can say that now. The weave has also changed. When I bent over I could see the color of my underwear very clearly through the crops. That never happened in the past, no matter how tight they were. I could always see panty lines but not the color of my underwear. The last luon pants I bought were the Energize Pant when they were out last year (not this latest release but the first one) and the luon felt just fine - the right weight and texture. This new stuff sucks. I guess I will stick to buying the luxtreme bottoms or Zobha bottoms. I bought some Zobha Straight Leg Capris and the material felt a lot like (old) luon and hasn't pilled or roughened at all in the crotch area. Zobha doesn't breathe or wick as well as my (old) luon stuff but it has the right feel. I really hope Lululemon goes back to the old recipe for luon because this new stuff is not up to par.
