Triumph Tote, Store Trip Report, A Couple of Reviews

Photo of the new Magnum Nesting Blackbird print Triumph Tote. It is $118.

I went to the store today to see what was new and tried on the Turbo tank. As I thought, I didn't like it on me. The mid-section was loose but kind of snug on my hips so it made the cutouts gap more. The tank is also super long, like the Circuit tank. I liked the sexy look of the bandeau bra but I'm just not comfortable exposing my midsection. I didn't think this tank was very supportive for busty women. I also don't care for the gathered neckline -I thought it was a cheap look. This was an easy pass for me. Other than that, my store didn't have anything else I wanted or haven't already bought.

I wore my Heathered Pigeon luxtreme CRB around today. I like the color and material a lot but am not sure that I like the fit of a luxtreme CRB. Luxtreme is slippery so it tends to slide up, on me anyway. I got creases above my boobs, like the girl does on her left side in this photo, and I had to keep yanking my shirt down. The luxtreme also shows sweat pretty easily, even in this light color. Its not like I'll be selling this tank or anything but I won't be getting another luxtreme CRB.


A friend recently picked up a white Fresh Manifesto LS for me that was on a smokin' markdown at her store and I wore it for the first time yesterday. This is a super thin tank but it's great to throw over a Power Y or another tank when the air is a bit too cold to go without. It's totally see through. I like it a lot but I've read they are super delicate and there is no way I'd buy one for $68. However, if it's on a nice markdown, I'd get another one just to have as a nice cover up.

Thank you for luxtreme CRB fit review!

Ugg, Luxtreme! I recently bought the luxtreme power y, and while it looks & feels great, it rides up! Huge distraction when you are doing yoga. I wish I remembered that luxtreme did that! I have a luxtreme pullover from years ago that I don't wear because if that. Luxtreme is just better for tights that tops!

wondering how low the markdown was so that i can be on the hunt too?

Curious to know the markdown on the manifesto top too.

I've sold my one and only luxtreme tank, it rode up horribly and I think I'm just not a fan of luxtreme on top.

I received my turbo tank and weightless shorts yesterday and they are both going back

The turbo tank on me was also a weird fit -- i didnt care for the loose mid section and the length. Also thought the front part looked tight (I am not well endowed either) and then coupled with the loose midsection was just an odd look.

also the weightless shorts -- strange fit on them - i thought the waist had more of the old tracker shorts elastic -- but not -- it was a little tight then the short portion poufed out -- so it was like muffin top then diaper effect-- not very flattering -- i'll stick with the speed shorts!

I love the new Triumphe Tote in Dewberry! I just waiting for them to come to our San Jose/Palo Alto stores. I showed three of my friends this tote and now they all want one! :)

I love the feel of the Turbo Tank and the look from the back, but really don't like the gathering at the neckline - I think it contributes to the fit looking off in the front. I'm debating keeping the black because the gathers aren't as noticable as they are on the other versions, but I'm still on the fence about it.

The weightless shorts are an odd fit. Yes, runners have bigger quads but they also have muscular hips! The low rise format does not accommodate this. They are tight in the waist/hip and loose in the butt, not comfortable.

You're going to poo your pants - the manifesto LS was $19.

RunMama said...

Oh lucky you!! Wow! There are tons still avail. online, I am waiting for a markdown.

I think they had a lone remaining 12 so that's why it was a great deal. The Santana Row store was having some major markdowns due to some water damage done to the store that needed to be closed for a few days for repair.
