NEW! Get Fit Tank, Happy Heart Long Sleeve, Clear Sky SFT and More

New style tank called the Get Fit tank in Rocksteady. It looks like they are paired with shorts or a skirt in the Coal Shale pattern in Royalty. I would say this tanks looks like it might be made of luxtreme (possibly, luon light) with circle mesh. I hope there is reinforcing elastic in the straps for extra support but I'm thinking there isn't. I'll try it on but I think it probably won't be supportive enough.

Another oversize top called the Happy Heart Long Sleeve. The back panel is made of tencel. I don't know why lululemon persists in using this fabric. It wrinkles too easily. I would say you might want to try sizing down so it isn't so billowy but the sleeves look too snug (what is lululemon's obsession with tight sleeves?)  to be able to do that. Pass.


A new Sing Floss Travel jacket in Clear Sky Blue. It's very pretty. I am reading there are supposed to be SFT jackets coming in the modal fabric. Now those I will have to try.

New headbands. I hope the bright pink one that looks a lot like fruity tootie means some bright pinks are headed our way. I suppose it could be raspberry, though. We'll have to see.

I can't remember, is this new? This is the Destiny Duffle. I've got to say the duffle is probably my favorite shape for a gym bag.

Oh I like the destiny duffle for a gym bag. It would be pretty in dewberry! I think that shirt is ugly and I agree about tencel... although the fabric is beautiful, it wrinkles, so whats the point? Tried on the RFYL pullover and didn't like it, luxtreme is just not as flattering on as luon, and the pullover was wayyyy too busy, roughing that doesn't sit right, contrast panels, sloppy hood. I have never used a hood on a running pullover for the temps this pullover is made for. Lululemon needs to get some real runners input into some of these designs, they are just not pratical.

WTF with the maternity shirts... or is that what they are?

What exactly is 'Modal'?

The Get Fit Tank looks promising. Can't wait to see more details on the material and to see the front. Maybe I'll pick up one of these since the Turbo Tank didn't fit me correctly. I saw the Destiny Duffle at my store last week and it was $128. The bag prices just seem to keep soaring. I remember I used to think $88 was a lot for a bag, now I sure wish I could get a bag at that price.

The Happy Heart Long Sleeve is growing on me - I might have to get it. So much Lulu stuff is skin-tight and I think some of the looser, flowier pieces they are coming out with lately are not only comfortable but stylish and, I think, sexier than the skin-tight designs.

Modal is a super soft and smooth fiber. Love the feel and comfort of the material, but have found that it's usually prone to pilling and doesn't keep its shape after time.

The Get Fit Tank reminds me of a Nike Tank.

Did anyone notice that the OM Scarf was cheaper on the lulu website than in stores? It was $39 on the web and $42 in stores. Not a huge difference, but I have to wonder why these price differences keep happening.

The Get Fit tank looks cute (the back at least). It looks like it might cut in on her upper lats a tiny bit though, and since the model is very fit and trim, I'm thinking it will cut in my back more. I hope not though and I hope the front is cute!

Modal is not breathable, if you wear it for hiking you will sweat lik ea pig!

Anon 1:35 I TOTALLY agree that Modal isn't breathable, especially if it's even a little humid outside you will be sweating bullets!
The Happy Heart longsleeve is a tough sell for me-very loose in the waist and the arms are way too snug! I'll have to pass on this one.

Tried the Get FIt tank on today. Total pass. The front is very plain jane. I can do without it. The circuit tank was much better executed and I already bought that one anyway!

RunItMyWay said...

The Get Fit tank is awfully similar to the Circuit tank... I like that the back of it is interesting and a little different, but who 2 tanks so similar? And why are they all luxtreme?! I'd love one in more forgiving luon or luon light!

Ivivva has the color watermelon out and it looks alot like the pink in the headband. Very pretty.

@ RunItMyWay - It's funny, when I tried on the Circuit Tank, I said I would have gotten one if it had been made of luxtreme. I also prefer the neckline on the Get Fit better than the Circuit. I am just not a fan of light luon for workouts. I don't mind that they have a luxtreme "version" of the Circuit Tank. I wish they made luxtreme version of a lot of tanks. Luxtreme is my go-to fabric in the summer since it's so light and wicking.
