The Latest

Does anyone else think the new Tencel Hairwrap looks like some sort of Civil War-era field dressing for a head wound?


A rare photo of the front of the Centered Energy bra. Not enough coverage for me.





Photos of the Tencel Post Power Crop.


Photos of the Free Fall crop in Heathered Concord Grape.

Love this combo - Flash SE Swiftly tank and new Wee Are From Space Excel crops.

Are the S/E swiftlys only available in store or will they be available online?

Laughing at your comment - yes looks like a civil war field dressing to me, too. LLA, I received my heathered concord crb today and you were completely right. I have oodles of crbs but the concord luon is scratchy and cheap feeling. It is totally different than my other heathered crbs. It is going back.

yogibabe said...

lol, LLA on that Civil War remark. It's either that or Rambo run amok!

Kinda happy that the SE Swiftly of all variations did not make it to the upload. Spent toooo much today! Need a breather for a little bit. ;)

I agree on the headband. So funny.

Re: snags in slub denim, a question: When they snag, is it just a matter of pulling the threads back in to the other side, or does it create a big scar in the fabric? I'm still debating whether or not to return my white Recognitions. Time is ticking... I probably would wear them to work (with butt cover top), so there is snag potential in the workday. TIA

Also, the new grey vinyasa scarf is so blah (and the flash too loud). Wish they would make a purple.

Hi I have the indigo denim wunder unders and they have snags. You can see a thread loop sticking up and a light blue line where the darker colored top thread pulled up. So with the dark colored fabric you can notice it for sure.

Minda said...

flash is very. . . FLASHY! LOL got my flash wunder unders today along with concord no limit. Someone asked about the sweat showing through on the flash wunders - I will post and let you know tomorrow after my hardcore spin class! =D

yogibabe said...

@Minda
Enjoy your flash WU! I wore mine to my yoga class and everyboby got a kick out of it. :) I subdued it a little with a black PUL. (Not like when I was decked out in Yin To You crop in Inkblot, with Inkblot Power Y! Actually, it was very cute, as the deep indigo skirt of the YTY "toned down" the patterns a little.) But I swear that if you put your hands close to the flash color, it looks like your hands are glowing! lol!

tencel hair wrap is $22, comparison to a civil war dressing is... priceless. imo it looks like ninja . i bought one in black - i like the style and fabric. will perfectly complete my camo outfit for a combat class or my backpacking trips.

Kristin said...

I ordered a flash crb yesterday and I HOPE it isn't like the concord one, scratchy and cheap feeling. boooooo. I will update once I receive it.

Meg said...

@kristin ... I have the Heathered flash and xl crb in flash... Both are soft!

@Minda & yogibabe, I was asking before about the sweat showing in the flash Dhanurasana crops. I was just sitting here staring at them wondering if I should just bite the bullet and buy them to try (before they're sold out)? I'm not near a store though, and I'm getting sick of buying things to try on and then paying to send them back if they don't work. Weren't the flash WU's reversible? If so, I'd think that the extra black layer on the other side would actually make them less sheer and less prone to showing sweat. Damn, should've gotten that style when I could've. I'm also very fair skinned and wonder if that bright color against my bright white skin would be to jarring on the eyes? lol....

*sigh* I hate the pressure of buying impulsively just to try to snag something before it sells out, especially when on the fence about it. It's exhausting. So many other things I could be doing with my time.

Hi all, is there a new upload time? I've notice WMTM and other items are replenished well after 9 am, same things were the same when I had my morning tea, and the items are already gone!!!
What's the new upload time?

I have tried and tried to like the new bra, but I can not. I could easily wear it as I'm just a 34B/size 4 person but I can't find it attractive at all.
Maybe because I have always found any strappy bra, top, tank, dress, you name it, with that ring on the back to resemble street workers/ exotic dancers outfits, but in a cheap, tasteless way.

Groovinpinky said...

Hi Marti, I looked at the WMTM at 8:30 this morning and nothing and then 9:15 new items, but all sizes are gone! What gives? They are still up there and it is almost 10:30.

Am I the only one that doesn't mind the concord grape CRB? I love the color, it looks awesome with grey bottoms. I wore it last night for session with trainer followed by yoga and the fabric didn't bother me. My main complaint about other CRB is that you can see your bra color through it. I don't have the budget to buy a matching bra for every CRB. Concord grape is nice and dark, no bra color showing through.

Kristin said...

Thx Meg. Honestly, if it was a little scratchy, I would still keep it. I like heathered flash.

w/ the WMTM.....sooooo frustrating. I want the lime CRB.....but it's not available. Arg. I wish they'd drop the price of the good karma pullover. I'm intrigued by it but not for $54! I'd buy it if it was 30-something. I think.

Hey GroovinPinky
I don't know what's going on. This has happened at least 3 times --later in he day 9-10 more items are loaded but unavailable.

Amy said...

Someone asked about WU showing sweat. I've found that every color WU shows sweat to some degree except black. I have heathered ultraviolet, pigment blue, coal, flash, plum and all show some sweat. I am a big sweater and although the sweat does show a bit, I don't mind. It dries quickly, too. However, if I'm going somewhere after class I just make sure I have a jacket or top that covers my bum.

yogibabe said...

@ Becky,
The Flash WU crop is reversible, but not in a "true" reversible way. It is still single layer, hence the see-throughness (though I don't think it's bad at all). Only the waistband is double layered, with black on one side and the lulu logo on the left leg, by the knee, as opposed to the usual placement on the back waistband. I have the true reversible WUs, two layers with different colors. I wear those a lot when the weather is cooler, as I find it a bit too warm to practice in, in the summer months.

I do not have the flash in the Dhanurasana crop, so I can't comment on that. Dhanurasana crop is not my favorite to practice in as I find myself tugging down at the hem line. I feel that it rides up in the course of my class and that is quite annoying.

becky said...

@yogibabe,

GTK! I was looking at the waistband wondering how I'd feel about it. I'm not a huge fan of the waist on the regular WU, but my Groove WU crops I very much like. That little extra height in the rise is perfect, but I didn't think about the hemline. I'm short though, 5'3, so I feel like that wouldn't be an issue. Just not sold on flash. I sent back the flash CMH bra because I thought it was too loud, so what the heck makes me think I could pull off crops in that color?!? I like it on others but am too boring myself for them. Concord grape would have been a solid sell for me. So instead, I opted to save a few bucks and got the Chaturanga Yoga Knickers from Athleta in Rosewood. I'm hoping they look more like Lulu's plum than brown, but we'll see.

i love the tencel headband!! i was so glad lulu FINALLY made "turban-style" headwrap. Eugenia Kim/Jennifer Behr ones are at least $70, $22 is such a steal.

Dyan said...

So, unrelated question; does anyone know when the printed jacket from the banner will be uploaded? (and which jacket it is? The collar looks a little like the travel to track jacket... I hope I'm wrong though, since that one isn't terribly flattering)

Violet said...

Can someone tell me please what kind of bra fits under CRB?

Anonymous said...

The Flow Y bra works for me with the CRB.

violet said...

Thank you

Anonymous said...

I use the Arise bra under CRB as the flow y doesn't fit me correctly.

Jax+Puzzle said...

Flash Vinyasa Scarf is a disappointment, IMO... it's scratchy, not super soft rulu like I expected.

LuluLily said...

Dunno if anyone will see this, but I just tried on a size 8 Flash Dhanurasana crop (when my true size is a 4) and it is still sheer when moving. My fiance was able to clearly discern the v subtle print on my undies through it. Too bad, because these were so much more flattering on me w/ my not so tall frame (5'1") than the Flash WUs.

Also, the WAFS coal fossil Dhanurasana crop are NOT see through/ sheer, even in my true size. And I'm not sure if it's in my head or not, but it seems like the black ones feel like thicker material.
