The headband with the ziggy wee print in an reddish-orange color is FLARE (not flame), as listed on the XL CRB:

I personally like the ziggy print. If it comes out in crop version, I'll definitely get it. :)

OT - does anyone know what happens to items that disappear from the website and don't end up in WMTM? Do they get sent to outlet stores? For example I was waiting for the my mantra LS to go to WMTM. Saw it in all sizes earlier. Then it disappeared but never appeared in WMTM like some other items did at the same time. Where did it go?

Me too, me too, on the ziggy WU crop. Love! Or any fitted crops, for that matter! :)

Not feeling like I want to get ziggy with it...

The My Mantra is still available full price - just saw it in my local store today, and online:

Thanks for the info Ingenue! It's really weird that it doesn't show up under tops like everything else.

Hilarious! Amen sister!

Wow... why do so many people like to wear their tanks a size too small?!?

I can't believe how see through that daily tank looks! It looks more like pyjamas than workout gear to me. lulu really needs to stop cheaping out with these thin fabrics under the guise of "its summer, its hot".

I don't see the currant studio crops on the LLL website. Is it only in stores?

Anonymous said...

I was just wondering the same thing! It doesn't look too flattering.

That Daily Tank is far too small. What's even worse is that the person taking the picture has not even bothered to let her know a size up would be better.

Allison223 said...

I've often thought the same thing with not just tanks being too small but pants/crops/shorts too!

I feel the need to come to that girls rescue in the caspian daily tank. While I comPletely agree that the tank is TOO small, the way those tanks run if she sized up I bet the straps would be flopping all over the place or falling off her shoulder. I have a few daily tanks and have had this debacle regularly when trying them on (although I don't enen bother with them anymore as the issue really frustrates me when working out). Considering how sheer the fabric.looks I am double glad I didn't buy it on a whim!

Did anyone else order the currant energy bra? Anyone have the bleeding issues mysuperficialendeavors had? Mine arrived yesterday, and I want to do whatever it takes (pre-wash, vinegar, etc.) to make sure it doesn't destroy my lighter colored tanks.

@Anon 7:09 -- Sorry I can't really answer your question but want to point out as someone else did in another post that she didn't wash her bra before wearing it with her white shirt. I'm a little befuddled as to why someone would trust a *red* Lulu item at this point in the game. Not to mention the ick factor of wearing something that could have been tried on by others first. Oh yeah, and the fact that new clothes are often spritzed with strange chemicals. Pre-washing has always been a must for me. I hope once you wash yours you have no such issues with bleeding. Good luck!

i neeeeeed the angel blue energy bra! my fave lulu bra. the daily tank looks like a cheap white tank top that turned a blue tone from being washed with something bleeding blue lulu. i love my black luon version (the straps are ok for me) but this fabric with the sheerness is just bad.

Anonymous said...

Anon 7:49 - thank you! I always pre-wash, I just want to make sure I'm doing it in the most effective way to ensure it doesn't bleed. I will look back at LLA's washing instructions from a couple weeks back. I bought the red item because 1) I haven't had any issues with bleeding in the past (even with flash and other bright items), and 2) I LOVE energy bras, which they never seem to have, so when I saw this one, I snapped it up, figuring I could washing it a million times beforehand and take other measures to (hopefully) avoid bleeding...

Thanks!

Not feelin' the ziggy print at all; different strokes for different strokes I guess.

I ended up heading in my local lulu today to check out the Be Me Tee. I have to say, it was ridiculously cute. I ended up sizing down in this and it was perfect length/drape. I felt like my regular TTS was just too big. I'm hopeful that the tee won't pill like crazy especially if I baby it...

I was very uninterested in the ziggy WU pants until I saw them in person... I own a lot of the WUC, but I've never bought any of the pants. Today I purchased the black ziggy WU pants. They were so soft and I felt like the pattern was flattering on my frame (5'8" 164lbs). I also feel that they are also different enough so that if I wore them in public before/after attending a class then I don't need to be self-conscious especially when paired with a longer top (like the Be Me Tee)! I spent way more than I wanted, so that was kind of painful.

I have to agree with people about the Lulu Fatigue. I have a bunch of new Lulu I haven't taken the tags off of yet because I'm still debating! I like the stuff but I don't know if I LOVE it more than I love having money in my bank! Haha.

I also saw the currant In Strides and I have to say I'm jealous! I bought the currant Scuba when it first appeared on the Canadian site and I've already taken the tags off but it's definitely not as saturated as the luon currant. I'm assuming the difference in colour is because of the different fabrics. I also purchased another Scuba in portapottie because I loved it when I saw it in person, a very nice green, but I still haven't taken the tags off of it.

I think one of the reasons I'm feeling the Lulu Fatique is because of bad customer service. I feel like I have to constantly argue with the "educators" because of quality issues and I'm feeling really sick of it! I had to put up a huge fight a few years ago in regards to my Savasana Wrap (which I LOVE) and the other day I had to fight about doing an exchange for a Define that had UNRAVELLING seams. I just feel really sick of being blamed for product defects which are actually due to declining quality. I just wish they could stand behind their product.

Sorry for the essay AND the double post!!!

I want to love the Daily tank SO much but if I wanted to show every bad curve of my stomach, I'd just go shirtless and wear only a bra.

I completely agree- even when you size up to where the body of the tank fits, the straps are way too big. You'd think a staple tank would not have issues. Is this tank ever offered in luon?

Anon @ 9:37 PM & 10:51 PM -
No problem. I had the My Mantra ls in my online cart and then noticed that you could no longer search for it, nor was it listed under tops. But I did order the one in my cart (I caved at full price) and it shipped just fine! I really like it, but if you can hold out until it goes on sale, it is pretty hard to justify at full price. I will say that I am wearing it a lot though. It's a really nice layering piece.

My problem is that I am never quick enough to get to the WMTM to get it in my size (even in-store it gets picked over so fast). Scarcity model = aargh.

Ingenue said...

Also, my quick OT rant: What is up with the Prettiest Pirouette Headband (the satin one with the bow)? I cannot imagine anyone older than Ivivva age wearing this... Even late teens. Wish they would have left well enough alone with the Skinny Satin Pirouette. /rant

Even I'm starting to get the dreaded Lulu Fatigue and I've only been shopping there for about five months. I'm planning a trip to the store tonight to return/exchange/try new items but probably not buy and have a bunch of stuff with the tags still on just in case. I find myself debating whether or not to keep my Fast & Free crops. I love the ruffle and the indigo color with the mirage waistband but worry that it's too low rise for my particular body type. Not sure if it only works for skinny girls who don't have big hip bones sticking out and a little flab around the belly. Then again, since many of my pants and crops tend to ride down when I run maybe it'll be good that these already start there. That's not an indictment on Lulu's clothes, more due to my strange body shape. Can't decide if the low rise is too "young" for me. Anybody have these who doesn't have a perfectly fit body? Feel free to reply anonymously so we don't learn the awful truth about you. :)

Vinegar doesn't work on synthetic fabrics to stop them from bleeding. It only works on natural fibres like wool or cotton.

Does anybody else find it weird that the woman in the purple speed squad tank is photographed holding all the excess fabric pulled behind her back? Presumably because the tank looks so ridiculous from the front when you let the fabric hang loose?
