Extra Long CRB, Pritti Crops First Wearing, and Free Fall Crops (Updated)

The South Miami store called this an Extra Long CRB but on the lulu website the Extra Long CRBs only come in Black, White, and Coal so I'm not sure if this really is an Extra Long CRB or just a regular CRB (probably the Heathered Lavender Gray) on a petite girl. If the Xtra long CRBs come in this heathered gray color, I think I have to get it.

Update: I heard back from the store - this is Heathered Magnum. I think I am going to have to buy it. They also said they have Extra Long CRBs in Surge, Rocksteady, and Lavender Haze.

Since the weather has cooled, I finally took the tags off my Pritti crops to wear to spin on Friday and really liked them. I like them a lot more than my Wunder Unders. WUs seem to cut into my waist and give me terrible muffin top. I found the waist of Prittis much more comfortable and gave me a smoother look in the front. I'm going to have to think about getting another pair.

I recently picked up a pair of Free Fall crops from Ebay for a song. They are lightweight (the tag says made of luon but I'd bet they are luon light or at least, a lightweight version of luon) and comfortable. They seem like a much improved version of the Here I Am crops. I don't think I would pay full price for them but if you find them on the markdown rack you might want to check them out.

I love my xlong crb. I would buy just about any other color than coal or white, so I really hope this one is a different color!

You are in luck - they are coming out with more colors - Rocksteady, Lavender Haze, Surge, & Heathered Magnum.

Great news! Is Lavender Haze the dark purple the paddle boarding shirt came in?

Really?! Extra long CRBs in those colors? Are they in stores already?! I am so excited.

LuluAddict said...

@ Run Mamma - you are right - Lavender Haze is the color the Rash Guards came in. Thanks!

Ooh, I'll need to save for that one and the heathered magnum then.

I am excited about the xlong CRBs! I tried the Priiti crops and they fit me really poorly and gave me a muffin top, while the WUs do not. I was sad because they are so cute. I think I have a long rise though (maybe a nice name for a "tall butt", ha ha?).

Why do people go crazy for extra long crbs? Personally, I think that's wayyy too much fabric. Other ones are long enough already! I think these long ones just look goofy on people.

I know tall people like me go crazy over them because regular CRBs are indeed too short. They show skin when I move around. Most tanks are too short, so I appreciate this option.

wow, regular CRBs are too short for tall folks? I'm 6'0 and I think CRB's are just perfect. Unless you're trying to wear them as a dress, in which case, then yeah i guess it'd be too short.

HAHA I love it, anon 7:10am.

Nope...not trying to wear as a dress...haha! I'm 6' tall as well, and the regular CRBs in my size show stomach when I lift my arms. The extra long ones don't quite cover the bum. Much more flattering for me. Glad there are both options for people. :-)

Those are just bad. They're way too long and look ridiculous. Doesn't matter if you're tall in my opinion, you still look like you're in a giant tube of luon.

Love my giant tube of luon...haha! :-). I don't wear it pulled down all the way like that, though. A liitle scrunched up and it comes just below the hip bones, partially covering bum. Much more flattering on me than the regular ones. I agree, though, that most of the pics modeling it aren't that good.
