Photos of the Apres Pullover


 The new Apres Pullover was uploaded to the Canadian side of the website but not the US. If it had been uploaded yesterday I might have ordered it to compare it to the Don't Hurry Be Happy (DHBH) Pullover and make a decision on which to keep. The Apres don't have the sherpa lining but has a more body-skimming shape. I still think I like the DHBH better since it's a bit longer and seems more style less function but I know quite a few of you have traded in your DHBH for the Apres. Let us know if you've tried both and which you preferred.

I bought both the DHBH in the black last week and the Apres Run in the black swan today. I agree that the DHBH is more stylish and like its length, but I wish it came in more colours!! I can't justify buying both, but I just might convince my husband to have Santa leave both under the Christmas tree ; ) The colour of the Apres Run in person looks most like the one of the pic above of the woman beside the tree with her hands in the pouch. -tac

Not sure if you saw that the Mall of America store posted pictures of the purple color of the Apres pullover. Just thot I'd let you know!

I have both the Apres Pullover in black swan and the DHBH. I love them both and I consider them for different functions!

I tried both in store yesterday and walked away with the Apres. I have yet to see the DHBH look flattering in even one picture- I find it makes the wearer look 1-2 sizes larger than they actually are. When I got it on, no matter how I adjusted it I looked several months pregnant. I couldn't spend that much money on something I wouldn't be comfortable leaving the house in. I'm not sure why comfort needs to be shapeless, but to lulu that seems to be the case lately.

The Apres is much more figure flattering. It is soft and warm, and while it doesn't have the bulky sherpa fleece inside, it does have a soft fleece that makes it perfect for layering. The sleeves aren't skin tight, so you can actually wear something with sleeves underneath. It has a large hood which will be great for snowy weather, and you won't have to worry about your makeup rubbing off like in the endless tunnel neck of the DHBH. If it comes to the US, def try it on for yourself! I got the coal, the black swan didn't work with my colouring, but if it comes in more colours I wouldn't hesitate in grabbing them!

I just sent back my coal DHBH. It also made me look 2 sizes bigger and pregnant. Maybe it is my short legs. Also, the thinner material on the insides of the arms made my arms cold- I could feel the air coming in. It just did not work with my body type but I think the Ghost one looks fabulous on you, LLA. I may check out that Apres if it gets uploaded.

Bought the Apres yesterday, in BS, & I don't really care for pullovers....too hot, shapeless, etc...but this one was is a microfleece, which is cooler than a heavy fleece, somewhat fitted, looks super cute on & is super soft...

I am of the opposite opinion regarding the après vs.the DHBH. I too have both but I prefer the DHBH by far. The DHBH is thicker, warmer and adds shape to my otherwise boy-like, shapeless figure. I find it very flattering and it does not make me look heavy (but I am not a heavy person). I can wear this alone and stay warm and cozy. The après is very pretty (prefer both colours to all of the DHBH colours) and has a nicer look to it (the DHbH looks like velour in comparison). I have the black swan one in the same size as my DHBH. It has zero shape to it so it in no way compliments my already shapeless body. I love the hood but dislike the ruffles on the front pocket. A higher, cinchable collar would have been nice as the wind easily gets into my neck, even with the hood up. With that said, the après is great for outdoor fall activities such as casual soccer, brisk walks etc.... I had to layer my downtime jacket over it when not doing brisk activities. I am happy to have both! I wear the DHBH for walks, grocery shopping, to the park with the kids...but it is too warm and that neck is too loose (it swallows my head whole whenever I bend down and bobs up a lot if running in it...such as chasing toddlers...) to wear for any sort of sport or activity. I wouldn't buy the après in any other colours as having one is all I would want. The DHBH, on the other hand, would definitely tempt me in other colours!!

Hi LLA and everyone. I saw a couple of new colors of No Limit Tank on ebay at double the retail price. The colors are Lilac/Charcoal and Charcoal/WPIN and another in GRLL/BTXP-no idea what that stands for. Have you all any input on the NLT in these colors? The sellers posted in her auction as a new Nov 2011 release. I'm not paying over retail for these but any info on it is appreciated.
