Photos: Push UR Limits, Ebb and Flow Crops, Tank, and Bra

Black Push UR Limtis Tank






Lots of photos of the Black/Black Microstripe Switch Back LS. People have been telling me this is a lightweight run top that I might find good for the Southern California climate. I haven't read too many negative try on reports other than it runs a bit shorter than the Turn Around LS.  I am hoping to try it on tomorrow. I kind of like the black version best but it gets kind of hot when the sun is out.









Some detail photos on the Ebb and Flow Crops. I have read comments that they are kind of sheer - can see the outline of your underwear to you can see everything when you bend all the way over. I have also read people are finding these comfortable but may be mostly getting them for casual wear.







I have read comments that this tank feels very comfortable and like a Power Y made out of swiftly knit so it sounds intriguing. I think I might like it for spin if I wore another bra under it. Not sure if I want to spend $64 on this top, though. I am definitely trying this on tomorrow.

Thanks for the info on the Ebb and Flow!

On another topic, I'm a huge fan of the Arise Bra and was sad when it disappeared, glad it is back but am not a camo fan. My store in No CA says if I don't like the camo print, to hold out until next week when more colors are coming in the Arise!!! Yippee!!!

Off topic: rumours of a new ear warmer?

I bought the Switch Back LS yesterday - it is so so very comfortable and for my style can even double as casual top with jeans.

I also wanted the blue and white but my store only had 4 left after just setting them out in the morning. That style FLEW off the rack, they said.

I have one little issue, as with the model in your image, and that is it is a little loose, rides up on the shoulders, but it is still so comfortable, it actually doesn't matter.

That PUL looks like it just might have a bit of added length!

I purchased the ebb and flow tank and crops and love them. They are pretty see through when you bend over, but I usually practice yoga in the back of the room and really don't care anyway. The fabric is so breathable, I couldn't help but by these items - they're perfect for hot yoga. I was just thinking the other day that luon really gets pretty wet with sweat and I wished there was a better fabric for a crop.

Thanks Anon @11:54 for the info on the ebb and flow tank and crops. Have you actually done a Bikram class in these yet? If so how was the sweat factor -- did you overheat in them? or did you remain "cool" Thank you for your help.

What's up with the ebb and flow bra being wrinkled across the bust area in some of the photos? I don't want wrinkles showing through my tanks/tops. I see they are all gathered in the center, but for some the wrinkle extends across the cup.
That's great that the crops are nice and comfy and people are buying them for casual wear. I guess though if you drop something or your small child wants you to pick them up, don't bend down unless you want to put on a show. Not something I want to have to worry about.

I passed on the Ebb & Flow--I don't do hot yoga so it was useless to me. I also didn't like the gathering at the bust, it just felt "junior dept" to me.

The crops also were just a bit too sheer unless you need them specifically for bikram. Although I would grab them if they went on markdown (and just use them for bedtime or around the house--they were comfy).

The switchback LS was another pass, imo. It was short (so not good if you are tall/long torso, good if you've been complaining about the long tops lately). The "iPod" pocket was tiny (certainly not going to hold an iPhone or anything close to that. It also just felt cheaper than the price imo.

All in all it was a major dud for me and was the second trip I left empty handed =(

Ebb & Flow crops are for sure see thru..If anyone says any differently they are lying!!! I tried them on the blue ones & you could see my cream colored underwear! Pass... I wanted to love the $88 LS reversible top but the price at almost $100 was an easy pass! i dont want to feel bad about casually laying on the ground with that shirt on when they try to kill us at crossfit.. so sad i wanted to leave the store w/ something =( & the ones that say those crops are not see thru quit lying please!!!!

If you're small chested the wrinkles in the middle of the tank look great. However, this tank shows any unwanted bulges you might have so I passed and just got the bra instead. Thinking about heading back to try on the crops.

For those who have tried on the Ebb and Flow crops, how does the waist compare with WUs? I'm 30 weeks pregnant and still able to wear my Astros. I wonder if I could fold over the waistband or whether the Will pants in pique would make more sense?

The Ebb and Flows *look* comfortable, but it's hard to know.

Anon 12:10 - haven't worn them in a bikram class yet, but I will tonight and will respond to this thread.

Erica - the crops are very very stretchy, but they rise higher than the astro wu. You can definitely fold them down.

Hope this helps!

Maybe it's just me but the Ebb and Flow Tank reminds me of something I could get at Target. . . but I haven't tried it on yet, I may eat my words. Actually, at $64, I'll just stay away from it.

It is definitely like something you could get at Target. It actually reminds me of layering tanks you find at Target, Forever 21, American Apparel etc. It's just boring and way too expensive for what it is. I just can't believe lulu thinks we will actually spend $64 for it.

Yep, that switchback LS once again has funny stick up shoulders in the pictures above...the seam looks dorky.

@Anon 1:45 - I can't wait to hear how your Bikram class went and how the ebb and flow crops and top 'faired"...thanks!!
