New Purple Coming? And Flash Comparisons

Several people have noticed that the Black Deep Breath tank was uploaded today. The interesting thing about this photo is the purple bottoms the model is wearing. These look deeper than lilac and almost like an older color called Power Purple.

Lilac Bang Buster

Lilac/Casis Heart Tank
Power Purple Wunder Unders

They also uploaded poncho stripe boogie shorts that look exactly like the waistband of the pants in the photo next to the power purple wunder unders... I guess theyre bringing that back too?

For those who couldn't wear the regular flash, just know that flashlight might actually work for you. I'm a cool (and very pale) skinned blonde and the flashlight "hot but not hot tank" looked amazing on my complexion. Has more of a pink/peach base...unlike regular flash that had too much of a red undertone for me.

Oh and for a fit review of the "hot but not hot tank":
It is amazing! Looks way better on me than ever would have thought it would have. The tuck in the font isn't as "silly" looking IRL (though i avoided the spots which i think enhance the tucks)). Oh and I'm a 30d/dd and the support is great! It's probably a size up tank if you are large busted. I'm normally a size 2 and the size 4 only just fits in the bust perfectly. Amazing tank...I know most hated it (just by looking at it)...but really if you tried it you would probably love it too...it's so sexy too! I bet this one becomes a favourite quickly:)

Now onlyif they showed some cameltoes.

@Minda - yes, they were 68$. I bought the grey WU crops last 8-May for that price.

Did not realize they're 72$ now. :(

I'm seeing the Post Power crop & Run Inspire Ruffle on the US site and I think some colors for some crops are back in stock.

Focus said...

Yay! Thank you for the flash comparisons!

Sourkraut said...

Ooh, I'll be happy with that purple if it is indeed a new color they're coming out with. Just so long as they don't pair it with any darn polka dots. I've got my fingers crossed for the Hot But Not Tank in a color like that.

Wunder grooves are back in stock!! I'm so excited, have been looking for them for forever.

When I went to our local store on Tuesday, I was looking at WU's, and the clerk said "if you're going to buy them you're just in time, I'm just in process of raising the prices" so if I bought them before she got the new sticker on them then I was in luck.

Like they're not expensive enough.

I've been a Lulu lover since the beginning, but I too am starting to fall out of love :(

OT: Centered Energy bra restocked in porcelaine. All sizes available!

Bummer on the price increase of the WU crop. :(

Anonymous said...

Price increase? Are you kidding me? In light of all the quality issues, I'm a little shocked by LLL's audacity to raise prices on their products. LOL

yogibabe said...

Just talked to one of my fave GE, yes..she saw the A Muse Me pant and even by being diplomatic about it, she was very not amused!

On a positive note, she did say that there will be more much nicer items soon, after she acknowledged that the last two uploads were a huge dissappointment. There's still hope for summer....

Minda said...

If we keep demanding Wu the price will raise and raise game. On another topic -I got my husband black fame on boxer briefs. He LOVES them and wants more. He actually likes the flare color lol I wonder if thy bleed. I'll just stick to the black for now. I'm not ready to see my big 6'4 Army man in lavender or bright blue gingham checks lol

Saw flash next to flash light in my local lulu store yesterday. IMO, flash light looks more like the old flush color. I thought it was more melon-y than pink-y. Happ-y Frida-y! :)

Beth said...

Ooh, I would love a pair of WU crops in that purple! I'll keep my fingers crossed...

minnie said...

Hi. I always enjoy reading your blog. Thanks for all kinds of info on lulu.

Although nobody want to purchase these, but I noticed today that the price for "Run: Travel To Track Jacket" went down to $59 from $79.

Anonymous said...

The lulu price structure is nonsensical. The Wunder Grooves are more expensive than the Wunder Unders. Why? Also, some pants will be in the "pants" section, when they are the same length as a "crop" in the crop section, and priced as a pant, not a crop when there's little difference. Bottom line is that lulu will charge what the market will bear and even though most clothing companies are discounting like crazy, lulu doesn't have to (at least for now)

What is the difference between the Wunder Groove and Wunder Under that would make the Groove cost more? Is the fit different?

Anonymous said...

Groove Crops are $86, Wunder Under Crops were $68 (now $72), I think they chose $78 as a "halfway" price point between the two. I ordered a pair of the Wunder Groove and a pair of the Astro Wunders earlier this week to compare with my Wunder Unders. I should receive them tomorrow, I'm looking forward to finding out which I like the best. However I just wore Inspire crops for the first time ever yesterday, and I loved them. I was only doing weightlifting though, plan to run in them on Sunday to see if I now have a new crop to spend ridiculous $$$ on!

Anonymous said...

Well, darn. I meant to order a pair of WU before the price increase, and I didn't do it. I may just go ahead and get Wunder Grooves instead.

Dune versus Blush Quartz.... Which would you choose for a jacket?? Help me decide please! :)

Minda said...

I really love the wunder grooves! i recently got a pair. But some things to think about - they have a higher waistline rise. Which I LIKE because the tummy is my particular problem area! You may be someone who prefers lower rises!- Also the seams are different than WU.They go down the sides. they are very comfy and flattering. But I dont think that added bit of fabric on the waist means the price should be jacked up THAT high LOL.

@ anon 11:40 - I think the Dune is cute has a little bit of sparkle

Anonymous said...

Oh, that might entice me! I've been debating on getting the blurred blossom jacket. I know alot of people hate it, but it's the only item (other than a headband) that looks cute to me in that print. A $60 jacket is really a steal from anywhere, much less Lulu.

Anonymous said...

If you are looking at the travel to track jacket, the blush quartz is the only Color I've seen in person, and it is very, very pink. Like, baby pink. Reminds me of Barbie for some reason even though her logo pink is more hot pink. I found it to be much less of a neutral than expected.

I just got my Flashlight define yesterday and I LOVE it. The color is more neon coral-ish...less pink. I walked by our local showroom and they were just putting them out. In fact, it was not even in the computer b/c I snatched it up so fast! :)

Price GOUGING Alert: Wunder Unders PRICE INCREASE of $4.00 per pair (so far.) Cropped Wunder Unders are now up to $72.00 (from $68.00) and regular Wunder Unders are now up to $82.00 (from $78.00)!!! So let's see, Christine Day & company bombard their customers with virtually unwearable designs and inferior merchandise over an extended time period. Items are no longer discounted and placed in the We Made Too Much (WMTM) section unless they are complete flops that most customers refuse to buy. Now, lululemon has decided to PRICE GOUGE their customers on popular styles such as Wunder Unders. Way to go lulu, keep alienating your customers and see where that gets you. Time to spend more money with the competition!!! Thanks for the price gouging heads up from astute buyers on this forum!!!
