LLA- check out this page:

the second picture. Laura's run gear is sooo cuute!!! You gotta buy this and lots of people would want you to be their angel-present company included!

For tonight. Bought the WU crop in faded dot embossed, passed on the deep indigo as I already have two pairs of Ebb&Flow in the same color. So, more for you guys! :) Also bought the Free To Be bra in metallic silver and two CRBs, ray and seaside dot white fossil.

The Mat has a new (?) color - fossil/ray. It's cute.

Just got the deep indigo WUC even though I already have that color in Ebb & Flow. :)

Tara said...

The flash light wunder unders, deep indigo wu, and a few Kahuna shorts for the husband. Debating on the faded dot WU's and the white in stride! With 3 little kids white is never a good color to wear. :(

Does anyone know of the flash light WU's are see through? I bought my regular size and a size up just incase they are.

....a short tank?!?!?!! I have been......WAITING FOR PINK POW and the first thing they release is a non flattering short tank! Haha I'm going to look like Tiffany Thiessen from the cast of 90210! I might as well pair it with the blurred blossom shorts and hike them up past my belly button! Wahhhhhhhhh!

It's not going to be the only item...... Right?!???!? If it were mullet maybe.... But even on the lovely model!!!!! Wallet is safe!

Awwww...the Skidless towel in seaside dot white/fossil/ray is so cute! I don't use it for my practise but it's so cute. :)

Did not order anything tonight, but lots of things to see in store!
I think the CRB racing length would be very cute sized up if it gives that boxy cropped feeling.
I can't think of anything you'd wear the some like it hot bra under because of the straps going directly in the center, which i know will give me the worse flabs around my under arms. I wish they'd make the Inner heart bra into a full length tank.

Is the seaside dot crb polyester-y or soft luon? Thanks

Wondering Yogi Crop in heathered charcoal and the seaside dot CRB for me! That's two items for $135...not so shabby in this warped Lulu world we live in!

rileygirl said...

I want pow pink...but no can do that cropped crb. Soo bummed but wallet is happy.

Melissa said...

I got Bruised Berry Some Like it Hot crops. That colour seems so gorgeous, though I would have preferred an In Stride or CRB.
Last week I picked up a Dune Bliss bag for MD :) Other than that, Lulu has been more miss than hit for a month :(

Anonymous said...

yogibabe I agree about the seaside dot towel, I'm not a hug fan of that print myself, but on the towel it's super cute. $65 for a towel was an easy pass for me though, got the metallic silver free to be bra instead.

Anonymous said...

I grabbed the Ray CRB, I've been waiting for this one and hope it looks as good in real life as it does in my head :) Was intrigued enough by the embossed dot WU to get those as well. I already have three black WUCs - plain, astro and groove. So I'll make myself think extra hard before ripping off the tags. But those are my preferred bottoms for yoga, and I want to start doing yoga every other day, and dots might be a nice change from plain black... LOL!

Anonymous said...

I left with the lilac tata tamer, and the hot n sweaty skirt. I was hoping for a bruised berry power y :(

Beth said...

I got the SS and LS Swiftlys in Ray. I'm all about being super visible in my runs. I was worried when these didn't get uploaded last week, so I'm really glad they got uploaded this week.

Anonymous said...

Wow, lots of unexpected new items tonight. I have wanted the Flash Light Define for weeks and after nearly giving up hope on it, was so excited to see it posted tonight. Also picked up the cross training cap in white. Hope I like it and it fits. The Sun Sprinter crops are tempting, but I would really like to try them on in the store first. That's all for tonight and probably for quite awhile. This girl needs to take it easy and enjoy what I have. Happy shopping, ladies!

Kristin Overton said...

Ray CRB & Mantra LS for me. I would love a pair of either the wandering yogi or diversity wu's, but the color options for both are bleak. I have a pair of org wu crops from awhile back that I love to death and have been waiting for more. My fingers are crossed for more colors in these! Oh, and more colors in the every yogi tank too while they're at it!

Minda said...

I didn't get anything. - Wishing that Pow Pink top wasn't a cropped length. Nearly got the Astro WU in charcoal, but read reviews on how they are slipping down a lot on people who do bouncy work outs. And I'm bouncing to and fro!!! So. . passed on it! I do need a black CRB - maybe I'll get that whenever.

seattlite said...

uhh.. what the heck.. I was just at my lll outlet last weekend and saw the jumper there for 20 bucks less..
It just NOW came out and was already on sale last weekend?!!? I'm so confused..

Anonymous said...

Deep Indigo WUC and CRB Striped Rib in black for me. It's an old tank I've been eyeing. Finally got it coz I really don't like any of the new tanks getting uploaded these days.

Anonymous said...

Bad couple of weeks for my wallet....
Got the reverse groove (reg.) bruised berry, Astro WUC grapeseed/lilac/coal, WUC indigo, and the Run Swiftly SS lilac. I loved this upload! (Other than the crazy running onesie and that short CRB top....not so sure about those two items).

Last week bought 4 adjust bras (They fit me perfectly and no strap issues at all....they are sooooo comfortable) and the bliss bag in menthol (super cute, can not wait to use it!).

Anonymous said...

I love lilac !
I got the Navy WU crops, navy seems to look great with every color.
Some Like It Hot tank in lilac.
CRB crop top in Pow Pink.
Pace Setter skirt in the dot print
Another pair of Dart and Dash shorts. I tried them out last night at the gym and they are awesome. So comfortable, flattering and NO leg muffin top like I get with the Groove shorts.

I'm hoping to see a Lilac Define jacket and maybe some sort of lilac bag.

purrfiktangil said...

Nothing for me this morning...probably a good thing considering I ordered the Tie and Fly last Tues, then saw on Wed that the Silver Bullet SL in menthol was there in my size, so grabbed that (I had not yet discovered the awesomeness of that running tank and then that color was long gone --- that one is seriously my current favorite running tank.). And then sat morning, I made the "mistake" of looking and the CRB in the flash/dune wee stripe had popped back on in my size. Again, another one of those I had passed on when it was loaded since I had the heathered flash, saw it in the store and told myself I couldn't possibly justify it, and then totally regretted not getting it. But when you're 2 hours from a store, and it's gone on the website, you are somewhat out of luck. But then, there is was. So naturally, I had to get that. :)

My Tie and Fly should come today (the downside to living on the southern east coast, shipping takes a full week), so I am looking forward to trying that out, and maybe giving it a go on an AM run 2moro.

Anonymous said...

WOW, over two months and no Tuesday morning purchases. I was SO looking forward to pow pink and a restocking of the tall pace setters and possibly new chaturanga colors. What do we get? Pow pink in a hideous, probably straight to markdown, short CRB, a super short mini skirt and an awful some like it hot tank? Come on LLL, you're losing me!

The some like it hot tank makes no sense to me. I'd be scared to run in it as there's nothing to hold up the side boob area.

I'm also VERY surprised we haven't seen more added to the WMTM section considering some of the epic fails released in the past few weeks.

Sourkraut said...

Not much I even want to try on, let alone buy blindly. I just went with the Some Like It Hot crop in bruised berry and the Some Like It Hot tank in lilac. I didn't mean to put together an outfit but seeing them next to each other in the cart makes me see how cute they'd look as a set. I think there's a big chance I won't like the straps on the tank and it'll be returned. Also concerned about the bruised berry crops being too sheer or showing sweat. We'll see. Since my local store still doesn't have the Hot But Not tank I figured I should just order whatever I want to try on and then return in store. My store is either last on the list to get stuff or is really selective about what they get in stock. It's a big store so I can't imagine the latter is the case.

Still no Rehearsal LS? Fortunately, I took an impromptu trip into the big city (Philadelphia) and the store there had them in black, grey, and the Hamburglar stripes. I got it in black and love it! Of course, it's totally impractical for the heat of June but I can be patient. Not dying for any of the other colors so I'm OK that it's not showing up online but that seems odd.

andrea2251 said...

Has anyone tried on the Some Like it Hot Tank?? I'm wondering how supportive it is and if it's an unflattering fit for us post-breastfeeding mothers. . .

Anonymous said...

I love the cropped CRB's and think they will be perfect for running in the heat and humidity!

Focus said...

I'm the sucker that bought the onesie, I bought it in black. I'm super irritated with this purchase because I knew it was already 20.00 less at the outlets...and I bought it ANYWAY!!! What is wrong with that dang picture!!!!!!!

I don't live near an outlet, and knew it was't likely that my store would get this, but I wanted desperately to try it. Mark my words, if it isn't total, "I can't live without you" love, that thing is going BACK! I'll also go back if I can find an outlet angel:)

Oh yeah, got a ray crb as well. Trying to determine if I need the ray swiftly tank I purchased or if the crb would get more use, input welcome. Silver bag was tempting, but I'm just not able to get down with the cheap looking lower half of that bag.

Also can someone tell me if the heathered coal xl crb was ever released as a regular crb and uploaded on to the lulu site?

Anonymous said...

Has anyone tried the Wandering Yogi crops? I ordered the white, but wondering if they are totally see through / impractical?

lexa said...

Just a black pair of black studio pants for me today, first purchase in awhile. I was looking for more pow pink stuff, as were a lot of other people by the sounds of it.

Tracy Reifkind said...

nothing. a few things I'd like to have but nothing I don't think my store won't get...more for online shoppers!

Anonymous said...

Got the ray CRB, the heathered quartz CRB, silver free to be bra, and bruised berry groove shorts. I wanted BB in WU, but i have so many WU I think the prospect of groove shorts instead is quite exciting!

Too much flash light and lilac. It's everywhere. Also i really dislike those cropped CRBs, wish they had released the Pow Pink in normal length(or really, in anything)this week.

On a side note, where is the nice selection of running shorts i was expecting to see by now? I figured they'd be offering more since it's summer!

Anonymous said...

Just wondering if the open mind bra is TTS? Thanks! :)

Whew at least the pow pink is here!!!!

Anonymous said...

Did the ray CRB and Wunder Unders already sell out on the Canadian side, or were they not uploaded?

Sourkraut said...

@Minda, I too really wanted a pair of those gray Astro WUC but passed because of the reviews. Has anyone here tried them for running? Do they really fall down? I already have a useless pair of crops like that, which sit in my closet and never get worn. Sad because I love the waistband design and the fact that it comes in a color other than black.

Kristin said...

@ Focus:
Don't think that a reg heathered charc CRB has been uploaded. Just the XL version.

I bought the bruised berry groove shorts and indigo WUC! I was debating btw the some like it hot crops in bruised berry or the groove shorts. Went w/ shorts bc I love my grooves and it's summer. Yippee, I've been waiting for the wu! Sounds like many other ladies ordered the same thing too. I'm glad I jumped on those items! Cannot wait til they arrive, which takes FOREVER bc I live in SE.

Anonymous said...

@anon 5:11: the ray CRB is still on the canadian site, but the ray WU sold out last week!

Crash said...

WHY were the Inspires with the seaside dot arch NOT uploaded? I was going to get them, the ray crb, and the white In Stride, but I was so mad the Inspires weren't there, I didn't order anything.

Anonymous said...

Indigo WUC'S for me and flashlight some like it hot tank. The tank Will probably end up going back I don't think that
Neckline be flattering on me. I just getting tired of my CRBs and power Y s.

I almost did the black WUCs with the new fall quilt waistband, but I'm overrun with black WUCs and black WUs so I exercised discretion.

Yawn- I'm getting really bored with these designs/colors :( also it's summer, and it's hot, where are the new run speed shorts? I really love to see a black embossed dot lined with Ray in run speeds...

Anonymous said...

What is with all of the new merch. on the WMTM but no sizes available in any of them? So annoying!

Anonymous said...

Nothing again. Also got the tie n fly and I thought it looked cheap. Going back.

Anonymous said...

One word for this Upload for me: BORING!

I need some more tanks for running, but I just don't love any of these colors or styles. Probably just going to pick up a couple from the Gap, they have a couple pretty orange shades I've been eyeing. Sigh.

Anonymous said...

Bought the seaside dot crb and the flash light some like it hot tank. Wasn't sure about the sizing for the some like it hot. Has anyone tried it on yet who can tell us if it is TTS?

Jess said...

I bought the Astro WU in the Coal/grapeseed. I've been waiting for a nice gray crop and I think this it. I didn't go by the reviews of them slipping down because those reviews stated they had to size up. I stuck with my regular size 4 as I've never had to size up on the bottoms.

I've also been eyeing the flash light WU, but I'm unsure. I think I'm sending my Power purple ones back as I just don't think I'll wear them enough because I have nothing to go with them! I wonder if I'd get more wear out of the flash light ones..

Anonymous said...

i bought the astro WU back when it just came out and i have no problems with them falling down. a few months later, i tried some new colors on, and the thighs seemed tighter and the waist band was looser. it also gave me a camel toe.....so.....no more astro WU until they fix all of that. the first batch came out perfect. wish i had bought more back then. i've moved on to WU.....i read that they changed the gusset so that it's triangular shaped and is more prone to weird creases at the crotch. makes me so sad. i just got on the WU boat but i think it comes to a halt......

Katie said...

A whole lotta notta for me! However, I went to Beyond Yoga's site and bought 3 things haha. I'm such a cheater. Excited to see pow pink arrived. Not excited about that tank. Hopefully next week will have more pink! Those shorty shorts were already on MD at my store and were uploaded now? Wtf lulu.

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me today. I was tempted by the Bruised Berry Inspires but think the dots look weird. It looks like reptile skin! Lizard legs!

Anonymous said...

I bought the ray CRB! That color makes me happy.

Anonymous said...

I bought the flash light define and ray crb :)

Anonymous said...

Ok i was looking very much forward to this upload. I got...Indigo WUs, the ray crb and the seaside dot crb. I cannot wait to pair the indigo WUs with the seaside dot crb...i think it will make a really cute outfit. Just throwing out an outfit idea for others!

I was tempted by the wandering yogi crop but am waiting to see what others think of them. As far as the some like it hot crop...seems to cause a major muffin top which is a major turn off for me from those crops.

lastly,i actually really like the cropped crb!! i think it's super functional for these hot summer months...light and airy. Unfortunately, i am self conscious about my stomach so i cannot wear this for activities such as my beloved hot yoga. However, i may breakdown and buy it just to see how it fits me and if i can find a purpose for it.

one more thing...i really want the embossed WUs but i want to see some pics of actual people wearing them just to see how they look in daylight/on ordinary people. luluaddict, please find pics of these crops.

Kristen said...

Bought the deep indigo wuc and a my mantra LS I've been wanting really want a top in bruised berry!

yogibabe said...

OT for @Kristin,
Saw this Arise bra from one of my fave sellers on Ebay. Item number:
270996600927
Her prices are always decent. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

Indigo WU crops (was hoping for these and Bruised Berry - still waiting for the later), Lilac TaTa Tamer (awesome surprise!), and FINALLY the Tie and Fly tank in Ray. This is the only Ray item that I've really been eyeing, and when the tank got uploaded last week in all the other colors I was so bummed. Now super excited! Hope this top fits and looks as cute as I am picturing in my head.
My order from last week should arrive today. I won't feel pressure to love the Power Purple WUs that I ordered now that the Indigos are on their way to my home. Wish both orders were arriving today!

Anonymous said...

This is random, but what shorts is the model wearing in this crop top picture? They look like they are loose in the thighs... Probably wouldn't be on me because I don't have "model thighs". Just wondering.

Anonymous said...

Where is the May WAFS crb or power y? I would have never bought the porcelain dsj if I would have known we'd never see this print on any tank. Lulu is losing me.

sophia said...

i didn't order anything online because i know my store will get stocked this week (nyc) and i'm too impatient to wait the week+ for things to arrive in the mail...

but i'm *planning* on getting the bruised berry reverse grooves! yay! i've been waiting for colored reverse grooves and jealous that the boogies are always the ones in cute colors. i LOVE bruised berry (got a define and the polocrosses the past two weeks) and am SO PSYCHED about the shorts. other than that, i'm contemplating the seaside dot crb and ray crb...i have a wild lime crb and a ray swiftly tank, so i'm not sure that i'm going to do it..

as for the cropped crbs, I actually think they're kinda interesting. i love my crbs anytime i'm wearing tights, but they're just too long for my when i put on a run skirt or run shorts. i'm 5'5", and they come down about mid-butt...when i'm running, it just rides up and gets bunched and i just don't like the look of the long length with shorts and skirts..i like my warm weather running tanks to be a bit shorter - so i see where lulu got the idea. i kinda like it. BUT the swiftly tanks are already shorter than the crbs...i don't know that i would replace a swiftly with the cropped crb, since if it's that hot out i want the lightest thing possible anyway.

sophia said...

oh, and i can't wait to try on the nothing to hide mini skirt! i guess i'm one of the few, but i love the ultra short run skirts (i have 2 run a marathon skirts that no one seems to like either), and i think this one looks super cute.

Anonymous said...

Is the new Deep Indigo WU the exact shade as the Deep Indigo Ebb & Flow crops?
I too have two pairs of the E&F in Deep Indigo and a pair or cropped Wunder Under in Indigo that reverses to all black.
When I put them next to each other the E&B Indigo looked brighter, really navy blue, while the Indigo WU were a mated Indigo.

Just wondering is I should get yet another pair of cropped in Indigo.

Mollie said...

Tara, I tried on flash light WUs and they were completely see through, even after sizing up..so unfortunate!

Bought ray CRB, pow pink CRB racing, lilac some like it hot tank, and coal/lilac WUs!

Anonymous said...

Got the Tall Bruised Berry Groove Shorts, a pair of Polocrosse in the same colour that showed up this morning, another Freestyle Polo shirt for my other half, and the SS swifly in Ray. The LS is too much for me in this color. Tempted by the cropped Deep Indigo WU but with three other lulu crops in Indigo, no need for a fourth pair.

Anonymous said...

I like them too, but unfortunately I DO have something to hide... My thighs. :) so, these look so cute on some people but they're not for me.

Anonymous said...

I almost bought the indigo wunder unders, but some of the fabric lately has been thin so I didn't want to risk it. I'm planning on going to my store later this week so I can try them on. I like the optimal tank in bruised berry might give that a try also.

Pink Peony 4 said...

Surprisingly I have never owned one but ordered 2 last night since they're citation. I'll run around in them in the fall and winter with boots they're easy to tuck in and if you want to show the bottom they're prettier than reg crops or WU. The cotton material us what I'm looking forward to. Be good for Yoga too I think. I feel like they would be more comfortable than Luon.

Anonymous said...

I got the Ray CRB & that's it! I wanted to want more, but I just couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger. I'm interested in the Tie & Fly and Swiftly tank in ray and the Some Like it Hot, but am going to Vegas next week so I'll wait to see them in person if they have them. I think I'll just leave the tags on the Ray CRB & take it with me in case I want to exchange it for one of those others.

When I first saw the new skirt, I HAD to have it, but oh my is it short! Guess I'll try that on in Vegas too if I can. I really want to get a dotted CRB, but couldn't decide which one, so didn't get any!

I love the idea of the short CRB for summer running, but I'm no skinny-winny & rather top heavy, so the shorties don't usually work. Can't wait to see more pow pink, but now I'm hoping they don't release it next Mon either so I have more $$ to spend at LLL in Vegas!!

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me. I'm only interested in Bruised Berry right now, and none of the current BB items suit my needs.

Cotton I mean not citation ( sorry auto correcting).

Unknown said...

i got the indigo wu's! are these coming out in pow pink anytime soon???

Sorry, slub, not slab denim. Auto correct!

@ yogibabe-
Thank you so much for the "heads-up" on the arise bra on ebay. You really know how to help a girl spend her cash! LOL.
Thanks!

Anonymous said...

@ anon 3:49 AM and all you others that are leaving such incredibly negative rants:

The RACING LENGTH cool racerback is made for just that, running races. It is the perfect length for running so you get coverage without being bothered by long tanks that ride up.

The Some Like it Hot tank is NOT made for running, it is designed for yoga. It would probably slip down while running, which is why is was NOT made for that purpose.

Everything lululemon makes is designed with purpose and intent. If you want to disregard that intent and focus solely on "fashion", that is your choice, but please do not bash the designers and the company because of your choices. If you are not sure what an item is designed to be used for, you can find that on the website under the picture of each item, example:

tech specs
designed for: run

I hope you all can have a better attitude towards a company that does so much good for our communities and continues to innovate and design flattering, functional athletic wear.

It does seem like things get a little negative on this blog sometimes, but I'm kind of a new reader. So, I really don't know if things used to more "positive" in this space. I still enjoy reading everyone's opinions though. It stings a little when people say that something I just ordered is fugly. However, I think LuLu is trying to appeal to a vast range of ages, needs, and body types. Not everything is going to work for everybody. I'm curvy and lots of LuLu styles just do nothing or me, but I get really excited about items that a thinner person might think looks kind of dumb (at least for their body type). And I'm ok with that.
Anyway, I thought last night's upload was really exciting and filled with surprises. Even if a lot of those pieces don't work for me, I enjoyed reading the descriptions & looking at the pics, and I'm still really pumped about the things that I ordered. Cant wait to pull into my driveway and see that white package by the front door!!!

Anonymous said...

Not sure I quite agree about this negativity business. This blog is an outlet for lulu lovers to express their excitement as well as disapointment. That being said,
We need to take comments with a grain of salt and not let anyone else's opinions away us. For instance, that silver bag is too flashy for me and I don't run at all and thus would have no use for the cropped CRB or tie and fly tanks, but I can appreciate why lulu made them and know a lot of people like them. At the end of the day we all love lulu even if we bash some designs at times. I love the brand and will continue to tune in weekly for more surprises, and I love reading this blog to see what people want and compare it to what actually turns up for sale! :)

so, about the upload this week. hmmm, nothing for me. yikes on the short crb, not for me at all whoo too for ladies that will rock that.

where on earth are all the shorts? its summer right??? why do i need more black shorts???? i saw the bruised berry grooves this am but they were sold out by the time i had any real time to look.

ok...i was not thrilled with the upload this week, nothing exciting for me. i am curious however as there is one review on the hot but not crops that states to size up. i do like the bruised berry, does anyone have any feedback on potential see through issues or fit?? the same reviewer stated she had to size down for the polocross crops (is that the right spelling/name lol??) i also had to size down on those also (ended up not buying, was a try on) so curious for anyone that has tried the hot but not on especially for sizing info...i have studio's, unders, and inspire's to compare to if anyone has tried them on?

sounds like the flash light crops are see through, again, limited reviews. anyone?? I'm not interested in flash but seems to be a pattern with coloured unders and i am not going to risk it online without feedback.

thanks!

i meant woo hoo...hate auto correct lol. whoever it works for cut wise, it is a beautiful colour pink.

Jess said...

Hey ladies,

What colour do the indigo WU reverse to? Black or the indigo colour again? I just got my power purple ones, and I love them... when I thought I might be returning them. And now I want another pair!

AZ Lulu Fan said...

Hi Jess - The indigo WU are indigo on both sides and I wouldn't consider them reversible. They are made with a single layer of fabric and the logo is on one side only.

Minda said...

@ anon 2:42 , I think if a company charges premium prices - we as the customer will demand premium product and customer service. It is pretty disappointing to spend a lot of money on clothes that fall apart quickly, function poorly, have ridiculous how to care for rules, snooty "educators" -- And not just as a rarity. . . it is the norm. . If all of these clothes were 60% cheaper you wouldn't hear a peep of complaint! People would be happy they had something cool for a good price and they wouldn't expect much from it, but be happily surprised if it did happen to work out.

And for the other poster on the fugly comment, I don't think anyone here intentionally means to hurt anyone elses feelings when they say OMG FUGLY, I think mostly people only say that when they see an item that would accentuate a flaw they might have -or be unflattering on their own bodies.

Anyway to everyone upset about differing opinions,- lol I love the yay and nay on this blog! Just run with it! When you have so many different personalities - wants - hopes - needs- expectations - there will always be points of disagreement. I'm always delighted when I see someone posting all the stuff they just got! Even if its items I would never wear - I love that they are thrilled and can't wait for the order to arrive! - Even though we don't always agree - we are all addicts and we embrace it. .. .in our own way LOL! GO TEAM LLA! Have a fabulous evening!

Crash said...

Fist bump to Anon 3:57! I read this blog daily (or multiple times a day) because I'm a big lulu purchaser, and I want/need these reviews to help me make informed decisions. As a consumer who spends literally thousands of dollars on "your" brand, Anon 2:42pm, I would think "your" attitude would be more appreciative of the incredible amount of feedback "you" can get here on this blog. If you care to scroll back through the history of this blog, I'm sure you will see hundreds, if not thousands, of positive comments and glowing reviews of products we love. Why do "we" seem more negative at this current time? Because I'm frustrated by a what I feel is a shortage of stock I'm used to seeing in the summer months, futile designs regardless what their tags says they're made for, and a repeat of colors with one tiny shade of difference. But I'm only speaking for myself, I won't pretend to speak for this whole community. I'm sure that your an "educator" at a lulu store and feel justified in defending your employer. I feel justified in my negative reviews when they are warranted, and equally so when I am positively thrilled with something new and write a review. So thank you to LLA and all the ladies who take the time to read, comment, review, and communicate with all of us because that's what makes this blog so wonderful.

Minda, you and I must have been typing at the same time! I especially love reading your commentary. Lots of lulu love to you!

So amped up about all the above, I forgot to mention my in-store purchase today, which was why I originally came here to comment! I got the Inspire crops in black/ray/seaside dot (that I was crushed to see weren't uploaded this morning, which is why I drove to the store in the first place so YAY!), deep coal/concord grape/heathered rose quartz Inspire crops, white crb, aaaaand black Good Fortune bag! Yep, I bought the fanny pack!!! With absolutely no intention of wearing it as a fanny pack, but as a crossbody purse for summer. The ray one is very cute with the embossed dot pattern, but I went with basic black. I wanted a ray crb, but my store didn't get them in, so I found the last remaining crb still priced at $39! I'd been wanting a white one for a while, just never picked it up til now. Oh it rang up $42, but I asked if I could get it for $39 because that was the price on the tag, and they made the adjustment. So I saved $3 on a $300 purchase - SCORE!!! Ha!

Crash!! I enjoy your posts as well! Sounds like a pretty sweet haul for you! I'd like to know how you like the function of your Good Fortune Bag! - Nice 3$ save on the 300$ LOLOL!! I would take that 3$ and get an unsweetened iced green tea and kick back with my loot happy as a clam! Take it easy!

It seems that Christine Day, or her press agent (aka Anon 2:42PM), is a bit too touchy about our criticism. She should remember that Babe Ruth struck out more often than he hit home runs. We love lulu even though she does sometime come up with real doozies!

Minda said...

EEEK! I just read on another lulu blog someone say they saw a news letter that astros and groove at 98$ will be marked up in august to 104$. And that many of the 98$ items will have a 6 dollar hike up! does anyone know if its for real?

Can everyone please let me know how the indigo WUs fit? Do they show all lumps and bumps? I really want to order then, but am unsure given that one of the above commenters mentioned that tey only have one layer of fabric. Help, please!

Agreed! We are all frustrated!

I just discovered Lululemon last fall and I'm already considering parting ways! I love the clothes (mostly) but the prices are ridiculous. I think tops should be priced at $30-40 and pants $75 TOPS. Maybe $75 for grooves and $50 for wunder unders. $72 for a pair of frickin LEGGINGS? And half of them are see through or pilling. If I'm paying this much the stuff better last forever and be perfect. Not to mention bleeding issues. And the pretentious attitude.

As someone who lives in a place without an actual LLL store and can only buy online to get her LLL fix, blogs (like LLA) are a godsend for me and definitely help me decide on my purchases.

I appreciate all kinds of reviews and comments, both positive and negative. Like Anon3:24 said, we need to take comments with a grain of salt and remember that everyone has a unique body type and their own taste. Because really without 'negative' comments (such as fabrics being see-through or fits not being TTS) I'd end up with a closet full of things I can't even wear.

Ack, Minda, where did you read that??? That's awful news!

Hey this is @ anon 3:00 p.m. again. I didn't mean negative as in bad product reviews. Those are totally helpful! If something is see-thru, or even if it just didn't fit your body type, that is totally useful. For someone like me, without a LuLu store nearby, these comments save me from buying stuff that would just disappoint upon arrival. I do think everyone is just frustrated that a brand they love so dearly is going through some growing pains. I think that's where the negativity is coming from and it seems warranted to me. I don't even mind when people say "oh I hate that" and it's something I personally love and want to own. My point was pretty much the same as @anon 3:24: to each her own. Our differences and preferences are what keep us all from showing up at yoga dressed alike. Wouldn't that be boring?

I bought my normal size. They're a touch softer than the basic black WUC, but did not show any lumps or bumps. Disclosure - I work out almost everyday and at 50, a genetic freak, because I have no cellulite. Thanks Mom & Dad!

Ok I went to a store today and tried these on and they are tts. The white one is really cute. I ordered the polka dot waisted one in heathered coal I think and gray. They are all nice and yes cotton comfy. The cinch is adorable. Be excited, I hope yours work out. I know I'm keeping mine. I might buy the white too. We'll see.

@AZ Lulu Fan
I have the same disclosure too-practise yoga almost daily, 47 and also a genetic freak with no cellulite. My husband warned me from advertising my freakishness, but I just want you all to keep that in mind when reading my reviews. Never my intention to mislead anyone.

That said, I agree with AZ Lulu Fan's take on the Deep Indigo WU crop. Softer and no lumps/bumps. TTS for the fit. I didn't bring it home as I already have two pairs of Deep Indigo Ebb&Flow crop that I love.

FYI, all "regular, non reversible WUs" are one layered; except the few, example: the Flash that reverses to Flash with Black waistband. That one is a single layer "pseudo reversible", imo. Same color on the reverse side with the lulu logo on the back of the left leg and the usual one on the back of the waistband, on the other side. Otherwise, true reversibles are two layers with a different color on each side. Hope this helps! :)

I saw the deep indigo on an educator today and it was unremarkable. You're right the e&f ones are sharper looking since that material takes the dye better. The wu almost looked dull and washed-- sort of faded. They had all the new wu there but not many takers. I ordered these wu too so I'll see how I feel when I get them.

I totally agree with Anon 2:42pm - I love seeing the Upcoming products featured on this blog - but many of you seem very negative and unhappy. If you don't like the company - don't buy their clothes. And let's lighten up shall we? We are talking about yoga clothes. It's not a conspiracy against consumers. And no - I do not work for the company :)

Pink Peony 4 said...

All I can say is that stock better go up. Lol. The only reason my husband funds this addiction is the hopes of making some of his money back by way of the stock market. Hmmm. Not doing too good lately.

Pink Peony 4 said...

I saw this on an educator today and they're the usual wu. They mostly are single layer Luon fabric, rarely double so no worries unless you've never owned one before. They're not as crisp navy like the ebb and flow crop. You can probably size up or try at a store to determine the fit. I took a friend to a store so she can start ordering online after knowing her style and size.

Did the NASA metallic tool bag sell out already on the US site?!! A lot of people secretly loving it LOL

Mummy Tummy is my bane. Was able to tighten it up for a few years with exercise, that's not working anymore. Thermage was surprisingly effective for approx. 18 months, but $1500 is a lot to pay for a temporary solution. Arghh, kids. Why haven't they developed a way for men to gestate yet? I shouldn't complain, it's a small pooch. My sister got a tummy tuck to remedy the full apron effect. She just wanted to see her underwear again.

Being here is like having dinner with your girlfriends. You rant and rave but at the end of the meal and lots of vino, all is good and we recharge for the next get together. And voila everybody shows up and we start over with our rants and raves. Don't forget there are plenty of laughs to be had here!!! Only girlfriends allowed. Btw, I'm not an employee of LLL or anyone.

Anonymous said...

Pink Peony your "I'm not an employee of LLL or anyone" disclosure is funny LOL

@AZ Lulu Fan
"She just wanted to see her underwear again." Lol!!! I know it's not funny, but your phrasing of it makes it funny! :)

I find that the core work in my yoga practise helps. Also the fact that my son has been kind to me, he didn't give me mummy tummy nor stretch marks. The tons of cocoa butter that was slathered on my belly must have helped too. :)
But you know what, nothing is permanent. Something's gonna give sometime soon and when that happens, I'll just open my arms and embrace it while being thankful for all the blessings that has graced my life-family, good health, friends and fellow luluaddicts!!!
