Photos of the Latest Arrivals - Record Breaker Crops, Jog Skirt, and Sunset Tank

Wren Wunder Unders - It's nice to have a different color but I would think this would show perspiration.

Sunset Tank in Coal/CSS and Pure Focus Tank in Wren - I'm hoping to try on the Sunset Tank tomorrow.

Sunset Tank in Violaceous. I am hoping to try it on tomorrow but am not expecting to like it. I think the pleats won't do me any favors and the straps with the scoop back tend to slide down my shoulders. However, I really like the color.

 Run Jog Skirt in Unicorn Tears and Coal

Record Breaker Crops - These have arrived in Southern California.

Not a fan of the Sunset tank. I don't think I've seen a single photo where the person actually looks good in it. My lulu addiction has almost all but disappeared lately... they need to up their game.

I just bought a pair of the record breaker crops and they are great! really good fit, and not too long as I am only 5"4

Luluaddict (or anybody!)Sorry to go off topic, but has the flow and go tank (black or white) been on the website yet? I've been searching forever for it in my size :(

@Anon : 4.28 pm - This batch of F&G did not turn up on the web site and it was only released in Canada.

I tried on the record breaker crops & wanted to love them - they look good, nice length, fit well... But the stripe of colour that wraps around the thigh is actually a recessed seam. I could notice it & it annoyed me just moving around the change room - so it would be a big problem when running.

@anon - 5:49am - I noticed that too about the RB crops. There is also a seam that goes right above the knee. It felt uncomfortable to me to have seam there. I check all other 4 luxtreme crops and none of them had a seam in that area. I don't know why they would have made these like that.

I have had the wren winder unders for a couple of weeks now. I've run in them a fair amount and so far no sweat circles or anything! They are reversible to black too:)

Becky said...

I look forward to your review of the Sunset Tank.

OT --Luluaddict -- curious if you have any insight on the rumor of Lulu being bought out -

will anyone ever tell me if the pure focus stays put during inversion? :(

momof5 said...

oops - bought out!!

LuluAddict - I bought the white sunset tank. I really like it, I actually wore it as casual wear on friday night!

I bought the black sunset tank and love it. Very flattering but then I've always been drawn to empire-style clothing. It is a tank that you can easily dress up with jeans or black WU and strappy sandals for an evening out.

Luluaddict - looking forward to the Sunset tank in Coal/CSS. I bought the Jog skirt in Coal/CSS and I want to try it on together! Have seen the white & black SS Tank in my stores....but haven't seen the pretty Violaceous or the CSS one.

Does anyone know if the sunset tank fits tts?

RunningOnCoffee said...

I like the wren color - it's nice and different! I agree about sweat though... probably wouldn't wear it for a tight fitting bottom.

It's nice that lulu is trying another tank that works with non-racer back bras, but I wonder if they have actually changed anything about the straps from previous versions. The straps always slipped off for me too (i.e. pep tank).

what is the jacket that girl is wearing with the UT skirt? The coal colored one?

@Anon 8:51pm - I have the pure focus tank and was able to do my usual inversion - supported shoulder stand - without it riding up. I'm going to test it out at my yoga class again tomorrow night to see how it does, but so far it's a beautiful and awesome tank!

@Katharine G. - I found the sunset tank fit tts but I was also not a huge fan of the fit for me... :)

@Katharine G.: i had to go a size up to 10 in a sunset tank so i can put a bra under. i am 8 in power y and crb, 36c/d. if you are a/b in bra, then go tts

does anyone know what jacket that is pictured with the skirt?

Looks like the Downtime Jacket in Coal!!

LuluAddict said...

@ momof5 - I found a message on the yahoo stocks boards that someone found it very interesting that Nike and Lululemon reported earnings on the same day since Lulu went public. I don't know if that means much, though. Interesting a takeover/merger showed up as a rumor, though.

Sam said...

it is the downtime jacket, I have it in vivolicous

phxrunner said...

Annie, I'm with you - I bought the wren WU crops a couple of weeks ago. I haven't had any problem with sweat showing either, probably because they are reversible.

what pants is the girl wearing in your photo captioned... "My favorite long sleeve swiftly so far - Iris and Clarity Gray" ??
