Spotted in Stores - Heathered Menthol Cool Racerback

Spotted in a store in Australia - a heathered Menthol Cool Racerback. I hope some other technical tanks will be coming out in solid Menthol. (Thanks to Megan for this photo.)

Porcelaine Blue Ta Ta Tamer

Also, the rumor is that Porcelaine blue is the new blue for spring and there will more tanks and items coming in that color. I can't wait. I love the sky blues.

When will the heather stop? I prefer the solids.

Of course it's heathered. Why did I expect, hope for, believe it would possibly be anything but heathered? Dangit, lulu. I used to buy CRBs by the armful, now it's been several months. I really love the Menthol color... it had such potential to be a beautiful solid CRB. Ugh.

Love my CRBS! Fed up of heathering! I too haven't bought one in months because of all the heathering.

How do we let the company know we all hate the heathering?

Got my Run Tame Me Tank in flash today, and it didn't bleed at all (I didn't prewash it either!). Maybe they finally fixed the bleeding..hopefully.

Haha! I only buy heathered crbs- I think they are more flattering on me so I'm super excited this one is heathered!!

I too like heathered colors in tops. I'm glad that a lot of people do not like this heathered menthol CRB. It means it won't sell out "in a flash" and that I don't need to order it right away.

Now, the Porcelaine blue is so pretty! I'll snatch one up in any tank style, solid prefered but heathered is fine too. Best case scenario will be solid and heathered in various styles. (Crossing fingers for Pure Balance tank, Free To Be bra and good ol Power Y!)

I'm really curious to see & feel this heathered crb in person. Menthol would be absolutely gorgeous as a solid crb, but I'm willing to give the heathered version a try. If the color appears more minty green due to the heathering, I'm in.
And yes! Very excited about the coming of Porcelaine blue=).

This blue looks a lot like my rock steady power Y! I love that color so much! Someone asked in another thread about sweat showing through flash wunder unders. I wore mine today through a high intensity cardio class then a spin class then a pure barre (low impact) class.. yes I know thats a lot today LOL NO sweating through and I'm a medium sweater! I got a million compliments on the flash color especially in the black lights of the spin class LOL. Some people also said that this color is see through! I did not see anything through. I think if you can see through or if they look shiny in any way the leggings should be worn a size up! - ok thanks for reading hope my input helped you! take care!

Yay, maybe this will temper my quest for old rocksteady items. Bring on the Define!

I've been a bit tired of the heather ed fabrics for a couple months, but maybe I don't have enough solids as base for my wardrobe?

I would love to see the run record breaker jacket come back, and be porcelain blue.

Of course, the last time I wanted something (a purple no limit tank) it showed up and I had to buy it in two sizes...

I truly loathe all the heathered colors. Please Lulu. Bring on the solids. Or at least balance it a little better!

What is the other shorter heathered green tank to the left of the CRB? Is that a power Y?

I really am annoyed with all the heathering!! It was fine at first but now it just feels played out. I got the heathered dazzling b/c it'll be another 2 years before lulu does orange again (SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGH) but ugh, so over it!! I would have bought a solid concord grape b/c my lolo is too big now, but of course --HEATHERING.

OMG WTH!!!! The Black wee are from space wunder unders were uploaded and I just noticed now!! I've been waiting for those puppies!!

Kristin said...

Not really loving the heather shades either, but it's a green shade. So, I will be ordering this one. Although, I find the heather crbs fit me better. Weird? But I am craving a solid crb. I would be happy w/ any solid shade. It seems like the crbs I got last year were solids.

Amanda said...

I got so tired of the heathered CRBs that when the xlong CRB came out in SOLID flash I just got it hemmed to the length of a regular CRB and I LOVE IT. Although the heathered flash was the heathering that annoyed me the least.

I like both solid and heathered colors. It adds variety to my workout wardrobe. Mixing the heathered (or patterened) items with solid colors adds more visual interest, in my opinion. Plus, some of the heathered tanks are extra soft. I would imagine lulu will be offering solid menthol tanks, too. I intend to get both!

OT Just picked up a white Chaturanga tank this morning....LOVE! Talk about support! And the fabric is butter soft. I will be buying this tank in every color that looks good with my skin tone.

Oh, and fingers crossed that this white doesn't turn dingy...I take pride in my laundering skills and still Lulu's whites just don't stay bright. My swiftly UV/white SS looks dingy after 1 wash and wear...not happy.

Can't wait for porcelain blue! It looks so pretty!

KS said...

I think it depends on the fabrics. I have a white crb and a white power y and they both stayed a true white, but a pink mist swiftly ended up looking dingy as well.

I agree with anon 8:03, I like to pair heathered tops with solid colored bottoms, and solid tops with heathered, WAFS or pique bottoms.

I do think the heathered CRB fits a little differently, at least in my limited experience. My solid pigment blue CRB is definitely larger than my heathered dazzling, especially in the midsection.

Re: flash crops, I am a 4-6 in lulu and most people my size probably wear a 4 in most items. I size up in Wunder Unders - honestly they are a smidge large as I have to adjust them during yoga. My crops were the right size, not shiny at all, but they were still a little sheer. And they had a dye flaw in the knee, because lulu doesn't know how to color fabrics properly. I also thought they would be a bright coral pink, but found them too neon for my taste.

I am with anon 3:54 and 3:58 - I've beeng buying the heathered CRBs for the past year or so. I don't love heathering in other tank styles but prefer my CRBS to be heathered or wee striped or static or some other "pattern". I hope the menthol is a soft CRB. The last few I've tried - concord, coal - have been scratchy feeling.
