Flash No Limit in the US, Store Trip Report, Zobha Items

The Flash No Limit is in the US. This photo is from an Arizona showroom. I would think your local stores will be getting it in the next day or two. I hope this means the new Tame Me Tank colors will be here soon, too.

I got my April Wee Are From Space CRB today and am finally going to keep a Cool Racerback. It's a fun pink color. Oddly enough my local store (Fashion Island) did not have the CRB in this pattern but they had the Scoop Neck. I tried on the Daily Tank in Fossil Wee Space but the straps were much too long and the top of my Ta Ta Tamer showed. They didn't have the new Every Yogi colors (Porcelaine and Fossil Wee Stripe). Oh yeah, they have two nice racks of sale stuff so make sure to check them out.

Zohba 360 Short
My Zobha 360 Shorts came today and they are very similar to lululemon Biker Groove shorts or Tall Reverse Grooves that are out now. The material is probably slightly rougher/thicker than luon. They are not compressive at all. I much prefer the compression shorts I bought from Moving Comfort for $24 than these. I swear they are longer than my Biker Grooves, ending at the middle of my knee, rather than just above. I will post pics and detailed comparisons tomorrow. Since I was looking for something shorter and more compressive and can buy Tall Reverse Grooves for $20 less (though I did find a Zobha coupon code and paid $59), get them repaired for free, and resell them on eBay for a lot more than I'd get for Zobha I will stick with lululemon. Next on my list to try - CW-X.

I don't really like the no limit tank ( I'm probably one of the only one) but if that is a lighter flash with the darker underneath that is a must have!

I love my CW-X crops, they give fantastic compression and if you have leg fatigue or IT band issues, I really think they are great. They are pretty thick, though, almost girdle like, and I sized up from a lulu run crop with good fit. Decent breathability--definitely a working crop.

Try aspaeris pivot compression shorts!!! they're having a 50% off promo right now and they are the most amazing shorts I have ever used!!!

Yes, size up in the CW-X. Vicki

CW-X are the best, I have shorts, crops and winter tights, they last for ages and maintain the compression throughout their lifespan. I really hate to run in anything without support now that I am used to CW-X. I'm not sure you need to size up, just measure yourself accurately (don't rely on your 'usual' size) and choose using the size chart. Lululemon 'compression' is a joke compared to these.

A lot of people LOVE CW-X, but I absolutely loathed them. They compress, but are stiff. Not soft in any way. I sent mine back. Have you tired aspaeris? They make compressions shorts and I wear mine to sleep sometimes. They are amazing. Got a facebook message yesterday that they're having a %0% off sale for a few more days. I'd highly recommend them especially if you like shorts.

martha @ running in mommyland said...

That would be a 50 % off deal, so for $30.00 they are worth a try!

By the way. I just received the Zobha harem crop. I tried all the LLL ones and they were ridiculous. The Zobha's on the other hand.... adorable!

Has anyone seen the April wee are from space crb in the store yet or know if the stores will get it? My orders take a week to arrive so I thought I would get it in the store but didn't see it on any of my store notices. I am in DC.

I LOVE my CW-X. I measured myself and went with their size chart and I'm happy. I'm compressed within an inch of my life, but I got used to that very quickly and now find I like the support.

My store hasn't gotten the new wee are from space crb either. I am in Chicago. I ordered on line because it seemed like it was close to selling out in my size.

Has anyone seen the deep coal/wee are from space deep coal april multi/flash short shorts, or really any waistband in those colors in the stores? Is it any different than black/wee are from space black march multi waistband? I have the WAFS march and I don't know if WAFS april is different enough to need both but I don't have a store near me and online it is hard to tell.

LIke MonkeyGirl, I went by the size chart as well. It was a small struggle to get my running tights on, but sooo worth the effort (bought the full length tights). I have had hip flexor issues in the past. And the tights I ordered help support my quads and hip flexors. I highly recommend this brand for compression tights/shorts.

Costco just got in knock off crbs. Great colors...They are 98 polyester, 8 percent spandex...coral/green/purple/sky blue. They are also a fake wee stripe (kind of). I will send picture to lulu addict and maybe she will post!

I just ordered the asparis shorts just now...we'll see how they work! the discount code is: APS4me

I was thinking of trying out the CW-X, since I have hip flexor issues and my IT band acts up sometimes. According to their size chart, I should be at the middle to small end of Medium (I'm 5'6 and 145 pounds, aiming for 135 pounds). Should I size up to the large? I don't want muffin top spilling all over the top, especially since it's a thin waistband...

Anon 6:11 where are you located? The Costco near me never has any of the lulu look alike stuff.

Hope there is an April WAFS define on the way. I am on the fence about the stride, since it is not as flattering on me.

I am in Eden Prairie, MN, although my sister lives in Denver and she is the one that told me about them. I can tell the smalls will go quick....so if interested I would hit Costco soon. They are the longer fit just like CRB's.
The colors are amazing. I sent a picture to lulu addict...maybe she will post.....

I have read about the Aspaeris on the Runningoncoffee blog. Thanks for letting me know about the sale!
