NEW! Run: Catch Me Tank and Discover Crops


New luxtreme tank called the Run: Catch Me in Caspian Blue and Power Purple. The one fit report I've read said it's a size down item. It also has a sticky hem to keep it from riding up. (Thanks to Ms. A for the photos.)

Also, new hybrid Discover Crops made of luon with luxtreme side panels. I'm kind of excited to try these on. One of my favorite crops are the Hill Crops which have a luon backside and luxtreme front side. I like the coverage of the luon but the extra breathability of luxtreme.

I just saw this tank on the Trolley site. I can't wait to try it on tomorrow!

Minda said...

I like the color! - Though I usually avoid tops that have parts to it. IE sliding plastic peices. Maybe my bazongas are just too wild to be tamed - but I always break these types of tops.
I am looking forward to what people think of it though!!

@ Laura - please let us know how you liked the top!

Laura Strate Madsen said...

Hey, Minda! I will! I only buy running tops so I'm excited to give it a go. Hopefully they still have my size when I show up tomorrow afternoon. :)

Yay for a tank with adjustable straps!!!! Im tall with a long torso and the tanks with built in bras never work for me- they hit mid boob lol. The last tank i got from lulu was the heart tank. Otherwise it's crbs or shelf less un tanks...

Anonymous said...

I love it! Reminds me of the LLL Heart Tank. I couldn't wear that one due to armpit spillage. I hope the Run: Catch Me tank doesn't pinch too much under the arms. Where's the stash pocket located?

Hmmm, all the new bra tank styles are $58 or more. That's a 10+% price hike.

@ Kristin and Minda-(duplicate post here, in case you missed the other).

@Kristin
Sorry for taking so long to answer your question. Just got back from my Santa Barbara trip to Nordies, and lulu and all. I do not have the Polocrosse Crop. I am thinking of one and my husband thought the fossil white slub denim will be the one. He thought the "baboon butt" is not baboonish at all, but a very nice way to accentuate the tush. My only holdout is the pockets. I'm not too keen on it as I've heard that some peeps said that it puckers up or gape open with use. And as I will only be using it for yoga, I can see the pockets looking wonky in some of the poses that involves manipulation on the outer hip area (pigeon pose comes to mind). And I certainly do not need to put anything in the pockets for my classes-not that I will need sustenance to keep me going (lol), as one would do in long runs. Any inputs on the pockets, while the crop is in performance? However Kristin, I love the Sun Sprinter crop, as an alternative to the WU crop in the hot summer months. It is so elegant and streamlined with the pretty seams placement. As with all luxtreme crops, I size up from my WU size. Have three pairs to date: mirage/deep indigo,(love deep indigo in luxtreme-rich deep color), faded dot embossed black/flash and black/metallic silver. Try them out, if you can.

Anyhoo...promised my take on the Amuse Me pants (for you, Minda!) Well...it was an interesting experience. Certainly not my style (I guess I'm not as stylish as others!lol!). Comfy enough, but I do not like the "crotch" dropping down to my ankles! Can't even walk properly with it. Almost taking dainty "geisha" steps with it on, all the while feeling like I'm trapped by that massive volume of the pants. On the upside, no CT issues at all!!!Hard to explain, but I hope you get the gist of it.

The Covers It all Dress, obviously doesn't covers it all!!! Mighty airy feeling while I was lounging in it, trying all the possible configurations. My eds were having a blast playing "dolly", with me as the guinea pig! It was a riot! My problem is essentially that the dress in the smallest size, is too "big" on me. There are too many gaping areas, and too thick of a fabric, due to the double layered reversibility. The heaviness of the fabric also causes me to have to keep adjusting my foldover hip area, as the weight keeps pulling it down after so many steps I take. You can see my "hip dimples" on my lower back, when it was worn the halter like way, and the one shoulder look. Too bad, as it is actually really cute as a beach cover up.

But the good news is, I managed to snag both the caspian blue and pow pink NLTs. Love both! My ed hunted in the unopened boxes in back for caspian blue in my size for about 20 minutes, and came back triumphant. Love her for that! I was sad when I only saw one size 8 an one size 10 in caspian initially when I arrived, but was elated when she found one in the 4 for me. :)

And then, I spent a bunch at Nordstrom's......

Pink Peony 4 said...

The caspian blue run catch me tank is promising. I'll have to try that one on. I am wearing my caspian blue nlt to Zumba tomorrow... If I don't oversleep since it will be in 7 hrs. The front looks kinda high but I'm sure it looks good on.

Yay to yogibabe for her Nordies trip! I keep thinking I should get more stuff because of the sale but some things I have to really try on before buying. I am happy i bought a pair of lysse leggings. It's made of ponte and it contains everything like spanx in pant form. By the way I got my currant scuba today and it does not look funky like some saw in theirs but I don't care too much for the zipper contrast thing. It looks cheap.

Kristin said...

@ yogibabe,

Thx girl! I am going to eye those sun sprinters. Being in FL, I like the thinner (but not see thru) luon and lighter crops like the sun sprinters. I have tried them on. I will definitely check those out. I will probably order both crops and make a decision. Ditto about the pockets on the polocrosse crops. BTW, you are a lucky gal.....nordies and lulu in one day!!! Wooohoooo! Fun, fun, fun!!!

OT- I received my space dye WU. Positive notes: LOVE the lightweight luon!!! They are kinda see-thru on me but the pattern helps to prevent the sheerness. LOVE THE PATTERN. BUT.....the triangle gusset is sewn too far back to be comfortable on me, CT!! I usually don't wear underwear when I wear crops (is that gross??) but I'm going to put on some hanky pankys under these. Hoping that helps the CT issue I have w/ the too far back triangle gusset. I haven't removed the tags, just in case. I'm sooooo sad. But, it's just a pair of crops.

Anonymous said...

Off topic but there were lots of restocks on the website this morning! I am guessing they are returns since the Pow Pink and Flash Light Define are back but I was able to get a Pop Orange CRB so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it isn't one with manufacturing defects. I ordered one online at the beginning of July and what I received was not good. The seams were crooked and the back of the neck puckered a good 3 inches from my neck. If it is another bad one, it is going back... Again...

Ashley said...

OT: the ls and ss swiftlys in currant disappeared from the website last night. I know for a fact that all sizes were available in the ls as of midnight. I wonder if they pulled them because of the quality, like they did after they sent out the defective currant scuba. I'm a little bummed because I was waiting to pull the trigger, until i heard what condition they were in. Oh well, I hope lulu comes out with more reds!

Anonymous said...

For the $, they should at least be "good" in my opinion.

Anonymous said...

FYI, Kristin, the Sun Sprinter crops aren't Luon, they are Power Luxtreme II :) I have two pair and they are awesome for running outside in the heat and they are very flattering to the bum.

Anonymous said...

I know! Had them both ss and ls currant Swiftly in my bag and now they are "black". Automatically switched from Currant to Black?!

Anonymous said...

Love my sun sprinter crops! Got the black originally cause I hate the dots but I want the deep indigo/mirage. I wear an 8 in all my pants and crops- I have Wunder Under, Run: Inspire, and Grooves but I sized up to a 10. The 8 was just too tight around my bum and uncomfortable! The 10 is maybe a TAD loose but really really comfortable and I can tighten the adjustable waistband for a perfect fit. I have a big butt and curvy hips with a smaller waist - one of the reasons I LOVE Lululemon bottoms. They fit my perfectly.

I tried on Zella crops and pants finally at the sale. They sadly don't fit me right at all! I tried the medium crops and while the fabric was nice and soft. Hard to explain the fit- they did't seem to be as compressive as Wunder Unders- I like how WU hold me in and hide flaws. The waistband on the Zellas was too big and already falling down in the dressing room but they were too tight around my calves where they hit? The rest fit ok but not so flattering albeit soft. Hmm. Definitely not my Wunder Unders! I did buy some super comfy shorts.

Anonymous said...

I couldn't agree more with yogibabe and anon 6.54. The sun sprinter crops are fabulous! I feel that they are more structured and hold everything in better than my other luxtreme crops. Super comfortable too!

Anonymous said...

Newbie here, but what is the difference between Luxtreme and Power Luxtreme? Is it the thickness of the fabric?

I have the Dance Strap tank made out of Luxtreme which I thought was too thick and hot to wear. And then I have the Run: Fast & Free crops made out of Power Luxtreme II which felt thinner and very comfortable for running on hot days.

purrfiktangil said...

ooohh those are both pretty cute...of course that said, the ones with the bras built in tend not to be supportive enough for running, for me at least :(

Anonymous said...

OT: Has anyone tried Alo Sport?

Anonymous said...

Run Catch Me tank, easy pass for me. Good for ladies who need more support (I assume) or are taller, need to adjust the straps. I don't think it's that cute or appealing.
I'll need to see the Discover crops in person and try on.

I have tried Alo sport. I have one pair of crops. They fit well. They have a foldover waistband. They're a size XS and I'm a size 4 in all LLL bottoms. Most of the seams are pretty well sewn up top, a little sloppiness on the cuffs. They are 88% Nylon and 12% Spandex. I like them but don't wear them regularly. I keep them at work with a tank etc. so if I wasn't planning to go to hot yoga, but decide last minute I want/need to go, I grab these clothes and rent a mat and towel at the studio.

I'm in Canada and got them at Winners (aka TKX, Marshalls) for something like $24.

Anonymous said...

correction, type, swear I typed "TJX" for TJ Max...I seriously always up with typos here!

Laura Strate Madsen said...

I ended up buying this tank. It fits me just like the Push Ur Limits, which is my all time favorite running top. The bust is a little tighter, but can be adjusted. there is also no-slip elastic on the bottom of the tank. I'm interested to see if the plastic sliders cause any irritation issues once I get running--I can see that potentially happening. My store also had an all black version of this tank, plus a white with a silver zigzag bust.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, one more thing on the alo crops...of course due to the material type/content, they do not feel at all like luon or luxtreme. They are a little stiff when they're not on, but again, they feel pretty comfortable when wearing them.

Anonymous said...

Question: denim material. I've read a lot of reviews of things in denim. I know people usually size up. I've tried on denim items and can usually get away with my regular size 4 but yes, if I size up to a 6 they feel a little more comfortable while I'm standing in the change room, i.e., not using them for real. I know these items stretch out (like regular jeans or other dress pants with stretch) and loosen up even with wear, even within an hour of having them on. So, my question is, is it the same for LLL? Are there people who have bought their regular size in denim and found the stretch/give happening, and you were happy to stay in your regular size? Or did they stay too tight and you're uncomfortable? I don't have a problem sizing up if that's the way to go because there's going to be no loosening up. (note, I never have to size up in anything, not even luxtreme items.) I just DON'T want to make an expensive mistake! Thanks for any advice/input you have.

Anonymous said...

hi anon 9:32/34 again on the alo crops. I just checked them again and they have a diamond gusset. I know this is important info to have! Not sure if you're shopping on-line and this info is not specified. Cheers.

Anonymous said...

I ordered the currant swiftly as soon as it popped up last week and it shipped out on the same day. I hope there isn't a quality control issue with it. As soon as it gets here, I'll let us guys know how it looks.

groovegirl said...

The fit of the tank is quite flattering and similar to the Heart Tank as mentioned above. However, I don't care for the contrasting black straps and seams running up the front. Despite hoping for more higher support luxtreme tops (like the PUL and Swift tanks), this will be a pass for me.

Anonymous said...

Anon 7:00 AM, the Luxtreme is lighter weight than Luon and has wicking properties. I'm not sure how Luxtreme differs from Power Luxtreme, but it seems like it has more compression? You will see Luon in more yoga crops and pants and Luxtreme variations for running. I think what else makes the Sun Sprinters so breathable is the circle mesh that runs in panels down the legs.

Anonymous said...

Question on Swiftly items...I only have the tank in Ray and it seems to be thinner than the other colors...is it? I am thinking about picking up a short sleeve swiftly, but I was hoping it would have just a little more weight to it. The tank rides up while I run and it's annoying. Thanks :(

@Anon 9:54

I have denim Astro crops in my normal size. They are heavier, less stretchy, and warmer than regular Luon crops. They don't "relax" much when wearing them or working out. Maybe just a tiny bit. They do tend to flatten out my rear. :(

So happy to see that I'm not loosing my mind!! I KNOW that I ordered the Scuba hoodie in Currant, but it arrived today in BLACK! I thought I was dreaming! I also ordered the LS Swifly in currant. I double check the email today regarding shipping, and it still lists the color and currant. I'm curious to see what I end up with now. So freaking sneaky!!!!

Anonymous said...

Anon 11:35...I have the SE Swiftly in Concord Grape with the blossom relief pattern in it. I really like it and the material is more 'sturdy' than the regular Swiftly. It also rides up when I wear it with Speed Shorts or Luxtreme crops...guess it's to be expected with the types of materials. I know people are crazy for the regular Swiftly but I just feel they are too fragile. The weight/quality between the regular and SE are what I compared in store. My SE has not snagged on me on the outside. I wash it inside out and DO have a few snags on the inside. I wash it in the washing machine. Believe it or not, I put it in an old pillowcase (tied off at the end) as I am VERY paranoid about the fragility and even though this version is better quality, imo. AND I've still ended up with snags on the inside, even with washing inside out and in a protective case!

@Anon 9:54 AM - Funny, I popped by this site to leave a similar comment since I just received my pair of Wanderful Flare denim pants in the mail today. I sized up partially because of the reviews of the denim material and partially because that's all that was in stock. Now I find myself debating whether or not I need to return the pants despite the fact that I absolutely love them. They seem to fit everywhere except the waist, where it's a tad bit loose. I worry that they'll stretch out with wear, both over the course of the day and on a permanent basis. They stay up now but if it gets any looser that might become an issue. Now we get to the crux of the problem, which is Lulu's asinine return policy and scarcity. With any other store I could either order another pair in 8, which isn't an option since they're sold out, or keep the tag on these and wait for my store to get them or a size 8 to become available online. Since I only have two weeks and shipments take a full week to get to me I'll have to obsessively stalk the website for the next seven days, hoping that some soul out there returns a size 8 and it happens to post on the site exactly when I'm checking so I can nab it before someone else does. Grrr. I'm not so foolish and desperate to don that Lulu logo that I'll drop nearly $100 on a pair of pants that doesn't fit properly so I'm going to have to give this a lot of thought. Any feedback from my fellow addicts would be much appreciated.

@Anon 11:38 AM - I for one could use a little butt flattening. :) Makes me wish all the more I could try my proper size.

Anonymous said...

@12:07 PM, maybe with all the reports of the faded color of the currant scuba and theory that they pulled them, they sent you the black by 'accident' so you can exchange for a better batch? or maybe they think you'll "live" with the black one. crazy!

Anonymous said...

@ Anon 7:00 AM. Hi. This may end up being tmi, but I hope it helps!

Luxtreme material is basically about the wicking properties. Its main use is in running gear. I think regular luxtreme is lighter weight in general (and not necessarily compressive) and power luxtreme and power luxtreme ii are possibly the same versions (ii an updated version?) of the same power luxtreme. luxtreme ii does state 'fabric's thickset composition' but I don't necessarily feel a difference between the two, whether wearing them or just feeling them, especially between the Run F&F and the Run Excel, which are both very recent crops (the first stating PL ii and the second just PL). I do feel a difference in weight and compression for only the Run A Marathon crop which is regular luxtreme(from experience in running in them, lightweight but not as supportive as the PL or PL ii, which is fine…it's a long distance crop and a design point was lightweight. It will depend on whether or not you go for lightweight or supportiveness on a really long run).

I pulled out hang tags for some of my different running crops. Below are the specifications on the tag and which crop is made of what:

Power Luxtreme
"Made of 4-way stretch power luxtreme fabric for 'no bounce' muscle support & quick drying, wicking capabilities"
- stated on the hang tag for my Run Inspire Crop (original), Run Full Tilt Crop, Run Chase Me Crop, Run Excel Crop.

With the exception of the Run Inspire original, which feel lighter weight, I do not feel any real difference in the weight of each crop. I would say they are all a compressive fit and supportive (incl. the Run Inspires).

Power Luxtreme ii
"2. Power Luxtreme ii is moisture wicking & four-way stretch. Enjoy full bum & thigh coverage thanks to the fabric's thickset composition. 3. High Lycra content helps these crops keep their shape."
- stated on the hang tag for my Run Fast And free Crop

Luxtreme
"3. 100% body mapped fabrics! Inherently wicking, lightweight Luxtreme fabric on front. 4. Anti-stink circle mesh panel behind the knee for extra breathability."
- on the hang tag of my Run A Marathon Crop.

Here's what LLL has to say in their definitions on materials:

luxtreme®
lululemon's fastest wicking fabric, Luxtreme® is primarily used in running gear for women and men. The moisture wicking is inherent in the fabric so will last for the life of the garment. This makes it great for super sweaty exercise! The nylon used in Luxtreme® is made to feel silky and smooth. We may choose Luxtreme®'s lightweight qualitlies over luon® depending on the intended purpose of a garment.
Variations include: brushed Power Luxtreme®, Power Luxtreme® and Pearl Luxtreme® which has a metallic sheen (cool right?). All variations have the same performance characteristics as regular Luxtreme® but may feel slightly different.

Can somene please explain to me what kind of "model"is lulu now implementing, when uploading items in "older" colors that apparently sold out long ago, but suddenly become available in all sizes? Like that run pullover (forgot its name) and the Currant Swiftly, both of which vanished as suddenly as they had popped up? This is not the scarcity model, because all sizes were still available in the Currant Swiftly's when they disappeared. This must be a new model called "window-of-opportunity model", in other words, get it as soon as we upload it, not because it might sell out within a day, but because we might simply take it down althoger from the website, without previous notice! WTH?? Really lululemon. I'm getting tired of your marketing models and strategies: scarcity, middle-of-the-night weekly uploads, and now "window of opportunity"?

Anonymous said...

I have white denim slub wunder Unders and did not size up. I got a 4 like I always get in WUC. I love the material. The fit is great. They really suck me in and make my thighs look amazing. I don't know why everyone says to size up. If I did that the waist would be too loose.

Minda said...

@1:48 Anon - maybe they are trying to rustle up business. 6 Months ago I think all this Pow Pink would have been sold out in just a couple hours. Hence the nocturnal stalking of all the addicts to ensure we get the size and color we want!
Now I see the new stuff staying online in all sizes - for weeks and even having opportunity to buy previous weeks supposedly HOT items.
Maybe lulu wants to entice with old previously quick to sell colors. . .too bad it doesn't have the old quality.

- People are catching on.
At the end of the day, all people really want is what the product DOES. Not the label. I want quality Workout wear that are hard working, not sheer, and not poorly constructed.

Anonymous said...

Anons 11:38 AM & 1:50 PM thanks for the info. I think if I size up I'm going to regret it? At Sourkraut 12:21, interesting! And it's the Wanderful Flare pant for me too! I've tried them on twice now. I think they might loosen and I don't want to be baggin out...still deciding...

Anonymous said...

OT but i'm not sure where to ask. does anyone know the last time lulu made truly reversible WUs (as in two completely different colors on each side rather than just the waistband being different)? I'm debating whether to get a black and coal pair but would much rather get a two for one. If it's been a long time since, then it sound like they've stopped doing it which stinks.

Do any of you ladies wear your Swiftly LS during hot summer months? If so, do you stay cool? I love the fit of the LS but I don't want to overheat. Thanks in advance :)

I occasionally wear mine in 80/85 degree weather but if it gets hotter than that, no. I then switch to my SS for sure.

I purchased truly reversible black and coal wunder under crops in the spring. A couple months before that, I also purchased black wunder under pants that reversed to a black wee stripe pattern. I typically wear black and dark gray bottoms, so I haven't purchased many, but they have sold a lot of black ones that reverse to bright colors. I think they will probably release more reversible wunder unders soon.

They do sell WU crops in the winter. As a matter of fact I wear them year round despite living in the North East. I like to wear the reversible ones when it gets particularly chilly. The only time I switch to WU pants is on snowy days.

Thanks so much for the help on the reversible WUs! I really want a true reversible pair with neutral colors. Really hope they come out soon. I never understood why people would pay for a single color over a reversible. Anyone?

I own 9 swiftlys and I don't have snags in any of them. I throw them in the washer, but use the hand wash setting, then I hang them to air dry.

None of them are the special edition version. I don't use them as lounge wear though, so maybe that has cut down on wear and tear. I did read in one of yesterday's posts that snags can be repaired. Which is great because I love mine!

Minda said...

I don't care for the feel of the reversible ones for some reason. Plus when I can see the Paris oink shining through on the reversed black side it's just ehhhhh. I suppose like anything it is just a preference.

Anonymous said...

Sometimes the stitching from the bright side shows on the neutral side. That bothers some people. Some people have also mentioned reversible WUs being tighter fitting and warmer.

Anonymous said...

I have the black with grey wee stripe from Jan/Feb-ish. There were other colors that had reversible versions, but mine aren't those versions (like pigment blue had 2 versions, and Paris pink). I like the neutrals, too. I hope there are more (diamond gussett, well-sewn) stripes & fun stuff in fall.

Anonymous said...

@ 6:14 PM, no desire for a 2 color reversible pair. My WU's are reversible (yes usually just the waistband) but I never wear them reversed. I have Special Edition WU crops (& pants) and prefer to have a number of pairs that I can rotate and therefore prolong the life of all. None gets worn every week, maybe every third week, and I go to hot yoga 2-3x a week, I'm running (not in WU's but in running crops or speed shorts) the other days. Same goes for my CRB's and Y bras, they all get rotated. I don't lounge around in any of it.

@ anon 6:18, lucky you. I don't use my Swiftly's for lounge ever, they are not worn with jewellery and never is there anything rubbing against them. Literally ONLY used for running. They are washed carefully, delicate cycle in a net bag and hung to dry BUT I still have ended up with snags. All the reviews on LLL's site support that the Swiftly is extremely fragile. I will not buy them anymore.

AZ Lulu Fan said...

I returned a pair of reversible WUCs a couple years ago that I ordered online.
1. Two layers of Luon, too heavy for Phoenix, even in the winter.
2. They can't be hemmed. Well, they can sort of hem them but one side will have a contrasting cuff.
They were coal/black combo. I get more use with separate coal and black WUCs and each pair has less wear and tear than wearing one pair worn twice as much.

Amy b said...

Yes!!! If your swiftly snags.... Take it into the store and they will fix it! My Ray swiftly had a horrible snag and they made it 100% unnoticeable. I don't think I am buying anymore. Way too delicate. My LLL has a nice life... It's own spot in the closet, unique washing methods, hang to dry... I even hold my seatbelt away from it while driving so it doesn't rub.

Side notes.... I never size up for my denim pants!

And...I just got my wee stripe WUCROPS IN MAIL TODAY! Holy cow! You gals rock! Thanks who much for the push to get them! They are freaking darling. My husband (who thinks my LLL addiction is bananas) even said they were super cute!

Anonymous said...

I have to agree that the truly reversible WUCs are very, very warm. I haven't worn mine at all since the spring because they're just too warm to wear, even in the air-conditioned gym. They're very soft and comfy, and I love them, so I'm looking forward to wearing them to yoga and BodyFlow and such when it finally cools off again this autumn. IF it ever cools off again. #sickofsummer

I'm the one who asked about the WU crops and thank you all for your helpful comments! I totally get it now and will just order separate pairs as I don't want crops to be so warm since I wear them in the summer. Thank u! Anyone know why wunder grooves cost more and is u own them how u like them compared to the regular wunder crop? Thanks!!!

Anonymous said...

It takes a full week for my orders to get to me, too! So frustrating! But if you check the website, you have 14 days from the day you receive your shipment if you decide you want to return it. I typically order online and return in the store and I have never had a problem returning anything as long as it was 14 days from the date I received it. The returns via Fed Ex should be the same. They can see when you received it from the tracking number. You could call to confirm but if they follow that policy on stores, they should do the same for the Fed Ex returns.

@anon 8:23
The wunder grooves have a higher rise in the waist from what I can tell. They also have a different seam placement. They feel slightly warmer to me, as I think the material is slightly thicker.
I ADORE THEM. I like a higher waisted rise as I love tummy control lol. Some ladies I see in class bend over and There is a mega g string shot creeping out of the top - but NOT in these pants! everyone wearing the wunder grooves is securely tucked away!

I can not comment on any current quality - I'm just commenting on these pants at theri functional best - and same with wunder unders. when they were not see through - they were perfect perfect perfeCTO -felt lower rise in waist but still great coverage - lighter material and not as warm.

I haven't even taken the tags off of my pow define! It's like 120 in Oklahoma. I am praying it is ok!! Now I am nervous.

I'm moving and just came across a pair of grey WU crops (I think Coal). They are not reversible, but if you happen to be an 8, I'm willing to send them your way for a really reasonable price. Since coal/neutral grey isn't a currently available color, I though you might be interested!

Just bought an Under Armour LS from the Nordstrom Sale - sImilar color to BB, and the shirt was only slightly heavier. $25.90 instead of $68, and I doubt it will bleed...

That's a great idea! I will check em out! I LOVE the quality of my under armour! I don't have to ever be careful with it it's all very compressing and now that I'm pg, I want something with stretch to accommodate the growing belly... The LLL swiftly size 6 looks like it could take me all the way but if it gets snagged I will prob cry, lol! I'm SOOO torn :/

@anon 11:19, I'd say the venus tank but I think you want something more fitted? What about the Power Y in Pearl Luxtreme? I don't have it but have seen it in store and the pearl luxtreme is really nice and would have the give you need as your baby belly grows.

The metallic silver Power Y Pearl is super stretchy. Silkier than regular Luon. Would be perfect for maternity wear as would the No Limits Tank and most drawstring bottom tanks like the Power Technique or Power Dance tanks.
