Photos of the Latest

I like this combo - Black Swiftly tank with the Fossil Beachy Floral Pace Setter skirt.

Blush Quart Define with a Fossil top underneath.


Flash No Limit with the Fossil Beachy Floral Pace Setter Skirt.

Porcelaine Beachy Floral Scoop Neck Tank


Flash Run Wild Half Zip. Shown with the Run: In the Sun crops in the top photo.

The It's a Cinch Dress looks good on women of all ages.

Porcelaine Cool Racerback with matching Speed Shorts and headband.

 I'm starting to think about what to get the husband for Father's Day. This is a Metal Vent Tech shirt in Caspian Blue. I really like these new pale colors for the men.

I've always wanted to try a swiftly tank because it looks perfect for hot workouts. The reviews on the website scare me away though - people talking about too big armholes and the front too low. Does anyone have a swiftly tank and love it?

I sized down from 6 to 4 for the tank and like it just fine.

Very annoyed that lulu doesn't make Swiftly Racerback in size 2 (like they did with the CRB). The 4 fits too loose around the torso and the armholes are too big too. Wonder why no size 2 and also same problem wth the Every Yogi Tank. Guess I'll spend my money on something else....

On the other hand, the long and short sleeves Swiftly fit me fine in the size 4.

I stayed in my regular 4 and wear it with a flow y bra underneath. I've never noticed it being big in the arm pits but about 1/4" of my flow y peaks out the top. I don't mind though, just gives a layered look. I love mine for any hot workouts or wearing around on hot days!

Does solid porcelain blue look at all different from rocksteady?

I got my normal size and it felt great for about 30 mins then it kind of relaxed. I don't think the arm holes are too big at all. i wear a 50 rep sports bra under or flow y. I love the top. I think I will get one size smaller next time though.

Yogibabe - I agree! I'm usually a 4 but tend to find that the items I would need to size down in (every yogi, swiftly tank, no limit, deep breath, flashback) aren't offered in a 2 while the items in which a 4 is fine have 2s as well. I guess they are trying to have a wide range of sizes available across all the styles?

Has anyone tried the Its A Cinch dress? I want to order it online but the 6 CRB and Daily tanks run big on me, but I practically wear a 6 in everything else, especially pants. But I want it to be fitted and cute like on this woman, not like I'm swimming in it. Thoughts?

Thanks everyone about the swiftly tank - that helps!

Anon 3:47, I love my black jacquard lace cinch dress so much that I paid full price for it online (without R & D discount). I saw an educator wearing it with the denim WU, boots, and a long sleeve run top(?) over it, and the combo looked adorable. (it was cold that day in SF) I have to say that I love it as a tunic more than a dress.

As much as I love the black one I returned the purple one because $88 bucks, twice the price of basically a long CRB, was too much because I own way too much Lulu that I rarely wear, so I figured I'll just have to wear the black one out!

As far as sizing goes. I'm in between a 6 and an 8 depending on whether or not I like a snug fit or a loose fit on some styles. This one I sized down to a 6, and when I "cinch" it it covers the bum perfectly. Although the arm holes are borderline small...but that's the case with the jacquard mesh tanks also. I would say that if a 6 runs big on you order the 4.

I never bought the swiftly tank because when I tried it on last year it was too big in the arm holes. This year though I tried it on again a few weeks ago and the arm holes seem to be fine. It's a little loose but not huge like I remember it being. Does anyone know if they changed the design slightly?

Thanks for the sizing tips Tracy! The outfit with the WUs and a running top over sounds super cute... $88 is a LOT, but on the other hand it seems like it will be a fun, versatile piece to have.

In regards to the Cinch Dress - it doesn't fit me correctly. I think because I'm an 8 in tops and 6 in bottoms so the 8 is too loose and looks goofy on the bottom and the 6 is too tight ontop (cuts into my armpits and shows too much). Just my experience with it. Best of luck!

I tried the black mesh CInch Dress last night and it's is super cute, but I didn't but it. The back is thin strap racer and I couldn't figure out what bra I could make work with it.
I went there to try on the swim line and I was told the store didn't get the swim line. So I asked about the 3 other Lulu stores in the area...none of them got swim ! I live outside Philadelphia and the closest store with swim is NY.

Yes I do and love it. You can size down since it's much stretchier than crb. Cooler to the skin and you barely notice it on. That's a good thing for workouts.

They fit snugged to me. I'm a 4 and the 6 seems to look better. Not hugging my middle and hips too much. I'm 118 lbs 5'2".

The ebb and flow crops have been re-stocked on Canadian website

i bought two swiftly tanks, the one in flash was TTS and all around awesome so then i ordered the wild lime. OMG that one was awful! you coud see more than half of my sports bra in the front and the sides of the bra through the sides. i couldn't believe how inconsistent the sizing was!

Is anyone else annoyed with straps of the daily tank? Love the design but the straps are so long I had to return it; so frustrating cause I love everything else about the tank. Any chance they will redesign with shorter straps???

@ Anon 2:16 pm: Sorry my entry was unclear. Only the first one was for you (swiftly tank). The next entry was for the it's a cinch dress question. Good luck.

Evil Liz said...

Thanks! I just picked up my first ebb and flows! I usually a 6, but I'm only starting to lose my pregnancy weight, and I've heard they are sheer so I ordered an 8.

Can't believe they are already selling out in sizes!

Anonymous said...

why can't the ebb and flows be on the US site!!!!

I got the 2 jacquard cinch dresses. I wear an 8 top and 6 pants. I ordered an 8 and it fits nicely. It sounds like the non-jacquard fit differently, though. Might try the grey sometime, if I can find it used. I plan to wear it with yoga pants for dancing. I thought the price was outrageous, but I have been looking for something that fits just like this. Wish the front were dressier, though. It looks so plain I plan to wear an Energy bra under it, though it's a boob-squisher. The straps should look nice.

On Saturdays they seem to upload random items. I got a pair of Ebb & Flow grey crops last Saturday on the US site. They arrived today and I love them. I am hoping they are back on the US site so I can get a navy pair.

Hi!
I just bought a No-Limit tank in size 6, which is my usual Lulu size for tops but I realised that the straps really cut into my shoulders :(
The inner bra fits otherwise. Does anyone have the same problem or is it just this piece ? :(

purrfiktangil said...

@ linGal --- I had the same prob with the No Limit tank, and the same size too. Got the 6, which is my usual lulu top size, but when I was doing yoga in it, I noticed the straps totally cut into my shoulders, which was a bummer bc the bra fit perfectly and it is a super cute tank.

Anyone bought the beachy floral scoop neck in porcelain ? The armpits look extremely high on the woamn in the pick above. I'm wondering about the fit.
