Photos of the Latest






Run: Fast and Free Crop photos.


Lilac High Noon Dot Power Y and Cool Racerback with matching Inspire Crops.


White Denim Define show with the Bruised Berry Run Fast and Free Crop and lilac High Noon Dot tank with matching headband. I gotta be honest, I'm not loving the small dot print tank on this woman. It looks too retro or something. And, because she's blonde I get a whole Doris Day vibe. I think the matching dot headband is what is killing it for me. Perhaps the outfit would look acceptable without that.


I think the matching headand looks ok here but this woman is young. The print also makes her look even younger. This small dot print is tricky. If you are young, it makes you look childish and if you are older, it makes you look like you're into some sort of retro Rockabilly look. Blech.


 I keep wanting to call this the Hot or Not Tank.

 Good photos of the Presence Pant.

 Flash Light Boogie Shorts.


The Heathered Coal X-Long Cool Racerback. I'm reading fit reviews that this CRB is very soft.

I have to say that new (insert stupid name) "hot" tank looks amazing on all those ladies! And the black looks super stylish. Would love to see the flashlight version and this tank on a d/dd girl, since it got a glowing review on the website already from a g/gg size girl!

Whoa! A G/GG? Unbelievable. I am waiting for more curvy photos, too, of the dot stuff. So far all the Daily and CRB High Noon Dot photos have been on relatively small chested women. I'd like to see if the dots make a curvy woman look juvenile or just like she's wearing her pajamas.

The dot print is very Betty Boop to me. Not a fan. My wallet has been safe since January. I guess I more into the winter stuff (wraps, jackets etc...). Haven't been a fan of anything lately.

What has happened to the WMTM section? Same 14 items have been on there for quite some time and nothing new added. I thought WMTM items were uploaded on a regular basis.

Went to the store yesterday and walked out with NADA. I almost tried the Flash Light Power Y but the material is different than all of my other Power Y tanks. It's a lot thinner, almost like CRB material. When I asked the GE why the material was so thin? She said that it's the 'Luon Light'. Not a fan of the thinner Luon for the Power Y. Hope this is not a trend.

Ooh, I'm not usually a ruffly kind of girl but I like the subtle one on those Fast and Free Crops. If only I didn't have ginormous hips that only look bigger when I wear tapered pants like those. Here's hoping for more stuff (especially that adorable Hot But Not Tank!) in bruised berry. Like Anonymous 5:08 AM I've been wondering what's up with the WMTM section. They've had several items marked down in my store, including some bras, that have never shown up there on the website.

Sourkraut said...

Oh, and some asshat on eBay is already selling the Hot But Not with the price jacked up to $98. Last I checked it's not sold out in any color on the actual website. How shady can people be?

I flat out refuse to buy anything off Ebay. The whole buying everything in sight then selling for double the retail price just sucks, IMO. Yeah, it's a free market/country whatever and people are free to make a buck whatever way they choose, but I just think it takes advantage.

If that ever becomes the only way to get new stuff, I'll stop buying Lulu. Thankfully I'm lucky and there are 3 stores in the city I live in.

@Anonymous 6:50 AM -- I totally agree. I occasionally check the eBay sales since I had luck once snagging a used Whisper tank for less than $30, but otherwise there's no way in hell I'd pay more than an item actually retailed for just because of Lulu's sales tactics. I honestly don't get how Lulu benefits from creating this artificial scarcity so everyone snaps up the items right away and then some eBayer makes a hefty profit by selling sold out items/colors. I guess their short return window means that some folks who aren't crafty enough to resell on eBay wind up keeping items they don't particularly like because they can't make it to a store in time. I can't really figure it out but it's one of the things that's kept me from buying much from Lulu lately. By the time I notice they've released a new color it's already sold out in my size. It sometimes seems as if they care less about keeping the customers happy and more about creating that artificial sense of urgency to buy buy buy as soon as an item is released.

When did the deep breath tank appear in black on the US site? They are being sneaky.

Has anyone tried the new crop above? It reminds me of the excel crop which is a really low rise. I have super short legs, so I am always looking for a crop like these. Saw the bruised berry in my store.... Definitely more towards purple than blue. Pretty!

Doris Day and the Hot or Not tank - you're killing me, LLA! Bwahahahahahaha!

I'd like a fit review on the run: for it crops. Anybody tried them on yet? They look super cute!

Just returned from my local lululemon store. The high noon dot print looked great on everyone wearing or trying it on. Guess it's simply a matter of individual preference and how good, or bad, it looks on you personally. Much nicer print than all the hamburglar stripes or the so-called "beachy" prints that just look like a cheap design sold in retirement community thrift shops. To each their own :)

the flashlight boogie shorts pics look a little odd (is it just me)... is it the tan line, did the color on the image just come out a little neon or they look a little "photoshopped"... i've never seen the back or more so on the front look so 'non-contured"...

@Focus
I think the black Deep Breath tank made her encore appearance on the US site this morning. Was pleasantly surprised but since I already have the black (actually, one of each of the colors ever made, I think!), I am hoping that the spotted ones, small and large spots-although I'm leaning more towards the small "accent" spots-to get uploaded too. :)

Speaking of spots, after all the spots that were uploaded this week, I am liking the "sea wheeze" multi colored spots more and more. Especially if it comes in a Power Y with black straps and piping around the neck and back.
