Outfit of the Day for Pure Barre Class

My outfit of the Day for Pure Barre was a black Challenge Tank, black Wee Stripe reversible Wunder Under crops with my new Ultraviolet Bang Buster headband. I was think thinking I didn't care for the Bang Buster headband much when I bought the Pig Pink one but I scrunched it up like they showed on the lulu website and I like it better. I really like Ultraviolet with my coloring so I am hoping some cute tanks come out in this color.

Hi,
How do find your reversible WU for working out. I have been eyeing them off but reckon they are going to be too hot for the gym. I bought them as a pant version but manly for wearing with boots and a jumper for this coming winter. Please let me know your thought about it because I would really like them in a crop to have as well. Cheers ♥ Ps. I lOVE your blog!!!

This is a bit random but I had to say something. It really frustrates me on eBay to find an item that just sold out yesterday on the website going for 1.5 times the original price on ebay. One seller will have the same pullover in 4 different sizes and have more than one of it. Lulu should put a stop to this by limiting what people can purchase on upload day .. It's only fair for those of us who live in towns that don't even have a lululemon store.

Love it! :) I'm a lulu addict and Pure Barre addict myself.

I agree with Anon 7:58, very frustrating! I'm getting to the point where I wake up in the middle of the night to check the website and completely over-order (but hate their return process, shipping back to them is adding up - considering putting my returns on Ebay so I don't loose money but not sure about that).

Anyone else notice that a bunch of stuff got added to WMTM, but no sizes were available and now they aren't there again (2 hours later)? Is there an email notification when things go on WMTM?

Thanks soooo much for this site, much appreciate it LLA!!!!

Love the wunder unders!

I was wondering if anyone could help me with a sizing question.

Currently, I have some size 4 wunder unders (crops and pants). I'm wondering if that's the correct size or if I need a 6. The size 4 seems to fit.. but I'm just not positive. I have looked at the lululemon sizing chart and it seems I am in between sizes. I'm 5'6", 110 pounds. Usually I wear a size 25/26 in jeans and am a 0-2 in pants/skirts.

Do lulu bottoms stretch out at all when you wear them?

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

The Loot/WMTM section is ridiculous. I'm so tired to seeing things I want only to realize that there's nothing available. I check the site pretty obsessively, so you'd think I would luck out once in a while, but nope.

@CJ, I'm 5"3 and 100 lbs and I wear 2's in all crops/pants. I do have a pair of the wunderunder pique crops in a 4 for lounging around the house.

I don't find any of the pants/crops to stretch out over time. So I'd say stick with a 4 if that is what you have and you're happy with them (:

@CJ-I'm 5'4" and about 105-107lbs. Jeans/pants skirt size 24/25 or 00/0. I wear size 2 for all lulu crops/pants. I do have a few 4s and that is because of the fabric, example, denim luon fits tighter and hence a 4 for that one.

As Laurie mentioned above, I do not find any of my pants/crops stretching over time. So, I would suggest that you stick to the size 4. Also, do the "bend over" test to see if the fabric in the bum area stretch too much as to make it sheer. If it is sheer, then you will need to size up. BTW, my hip is 34".

CJ, I would suggest you actually size down to a 2, at 5'6 110lbs, you seem to be a slim gal. I myself wear a 4 in all lululemon tops and bottoms and I'm 5'7" 125lbs.
Size 6 would be big on you, I'm sure.

For me I'm 5"4 about 130 and I had a size 6 in WU, but thought they might be slightly big so I exchanged them for a 4. Although the 4 fit just fine, I found that I didn't get enough booty coverage with the smaller size and felt like they were slightly slipping down, I should of just sticked with the 6. hope that helps.

I think it really really depends on the fabric (and maybe when you buy them). My first pair of Lulu anything were some old WUs a few years back in a coal gray type color with lime waist seems (not crotch though!) and those are a 4 and still fit me perfect, but all other pants (and WUs) I've bought since then are a steady 6 - with the exception of the *brushed WU's that I needed an 8 or else they pulled uncomfortably! I'm 5'8" and now 130lbs, probably 125 when I bought those first WUs. My suggestion, try them on, and walk around, sit, sit indian style, etc when testing them out. But none of mine have stretched over time.

Thanks for the comisurating on the WMTM page!! I cannot figure it out - guess there's nothing to figure out and that it's hit or miss. There were some cute things up though....hopefully they'll go back on!

@CJ- You do not need a 6. I wear a 2 and am 5'0" and 98 lbs. You are much taller than me and only a few pounds heavier, so I think you are wearing the right size with a 4.

Agree with the other ladies- try on all pairs, walk around in them, sit in them and do the bend over test. If they are not see through you are good to go.

@ anon 7:58am: I totally agree!! Ridiculous and frustrating!! I live 4 hours away from the closest Lulu store. Most of lulu shopping is online too. I second the motion to put a limit on purchases on upload day......But it's all about the sales.

@ CJ: I am 5'5, 112lbs and find that I am btw 2 and 4 depending on the fabric. In the speeds I am a solid 4 (and in most shorts). But in the WU, I can wear a 2 or 4. The 4 is a little baggy in the knees. Hope this helps.

@ anon 2:12 am - I think the black/wee stripe reversible wunder unders are fine for a workout. I've worn them to spin before and was a little hot but not any more than when I wear a normal pair of wunder unders. When I wear WUs I be sure to wear a lightweight or open backed tank to compensate.

Anyone see the ultraviolet Bang Buster in Canadian stores yet? Mine just had black and white :-(

CJ said...

Awesome, thanks everyone! I think I am good in the size 4 then. I was just so confused about their crazy size chart and was second guessing the size I purchased! Thanks all of you. :)
