No Limit Tanks, Pow Stride, Trinity Bra, and More


Photos of the Caspian Blue No Limit Tank. I'm reading that the No Limits should show up in the next upload.

Shown with the Hot N Sweaty Short


Pow No Limit Tank. The bra portion is very soft and stretchy so some people are sizing down in this one. I wore it for a large part of yesterday and the straps were a bit scratchy compared to my other NLTs.  If you bought an Aruba No Limit tank the Pow fit is similar.


White/Blazer Fossil No Limit. (also the Pow NLT)

 Black No Limit Tank, shown with Ebb and Flow Crops




Some Trinity Bra photos. It looks good on these women. It did not look nearly as good on me though I thought it was comfortable.

The Pow Stride is starting to hit the stores. Be sure to check the stitching and make sure it's symmetrical on both sides of the zipper. I've seen a photo where the collar and lulu symbol were misaligned.

Cute combo - Black Swiftly and Caspian Sun Sprinter Shorts.

Currant Swiftly LS and SS have shown up on the website.

I didn't realize there was a flower in the Mirage print.

Ooohhh hope they come out with a heathered pow crb would be really pretty. Same as the bra on the NLT!!!

So bummed, I drove out to Lulu last night and the Pow Pink NLT and the Blue NLT were already sold out in most sizes.
I did get the Venus crop in blue, very cute and flattering.

OH yes LLA! I noticed it was a kind of hawwaiian beachy deep florally type print that just melts into oblivion for the mirage!

I love love love the caspian NLT. The color is so purdy. I will get that on the next upload. Yay.

More additions to WMTM!

I like the look of that Trinity bra but I'm concerned those thin straps would dig into my shoulders over time. I'm like an old style VW Beetle or dare I say Porsche and my trunk is up front and I have plenty of junk there. LOL

I like the high coverage though, that appeals to me for gym use so I don't have those creepy gym stalkers peering down my top when I am bending over. I may try this on next time I'm at the store.

I'm interested to hear what others experience and thought are about this bra.

I'm going to snatch you today, caspian blue NLT, if I see you in the store! Bwahahahaha!!! ;P

I can not wait till upload on Tuesday in the wee hours of the morning. I definitely would like the NLT in Caspian Blue as well as a new CRB (fingers crossed for a heathered Pow Pink).

Just bought the WU Inkblot pants off ebay (and thankfully got them NWT and for the price that they originally went for) and can not wait to figure out what to wear with them. If anyone has any thoughts let me know. I am thinking something aquamarine or minty for the top or maybe just an indigo tank. Not sure.

Really tempted by the LUCY perfect tanks (I think that is what they are called...looks similar to LLL CRB) Anyone know how the length compares to LLL's CRBs? I only own LLL but am finally looking at other workout clothes.

I tried on the Trinity bra the other day. I'm a 36C, and about 5'1". It was not a good look for me. I wanted something higher in front to layer over tanks, as too low gives me obscene cleaveage, but the cut of this bra made the girls look saggy, and it was just terrible. I wanted to like it so much, but alas, no dice. It does seem to look nice on smaller boobed women, though.

Thanks so much for the 411 on the Trinity Bra. I really appreciate the info.

i usually wear a 12 in tops, would a 10 no limit tank fit? or would it be way to snug?

THANKS! :)

i am so annoyed at my local lulu store. they had the upload saying the caspian blue NLT was in. called 3 times during the day and no one had picked up.... so i drove there (mind u, i used the toll from work & had to pay $$ sigh) only to find out the shipment was late! grrrrrr >< this is the only top that i will chase for :) can u tell?

I ended up with both Pow and Caspian NLT's and my local store is already sold out! They put them out Tuesday night and by Weds lunch gone. Crazy! Worth staying up or setting an alarm if you really want either as I have a feeling they will sell quickly online.

Quick question for all those that love the NLT...I too love this tank (IMO its both flattering and comfortable and the silky smooth circle mesh fabric is divine), but there is one thing about it that really bugs me so I hardly ever wear mine. It's that gap on each side (right under the armpit) between where the bra ends and the circle mesh begins. Such a weird spot to have skin showing. I'm completely fine with wearing it for my workouts, but if I'm running errands or lounging around before or after I just feel like a total trashball because of that silly side exposure [side note: that's not to stay I have ever thought this about anyone else, so please don't think that wonderful ladies!. It's quite the contrary in fact as every time I see someone wearing a NLT I think to myself that I should really wear mine more often, because it is so flattering and just plain cute!]. I can't really explain why other than that it makes me think of baggy wife beaters and mullets! Does this bother anyone else? Or am I just loco (entirely possible!)? I've been thinking about taking NLTs (as well as a similar style - Let It Loose i think they were called) to a tailor to have the fabric under the arm tacked onto the bottom of the bra. Has anyone tried this successfully or unsuccessfully? If anyone has any feedback I'd love to know what y'all think!!

@Anon 9:20 AM - I happen to love that little peek of skin when I'm working out. I think it's good for venting and I like showing off a little in my workout clothes. For some reason I like to feel a little sassy when I'm working out even though I usually work out at home and my cats don't seem to care how stylish my outfits are. I agree that it makes the tank seem a bit inappropriate for other activities, though. I've worn mine on hot days for errands without feeling too exposed or trashy but wish I could wear it to work on equally hot days. It's a casual office but not *that* casual. I've also worn it under open-front sweaters and no one was the wiser. I think it drapes so nicely that even though it's obviously a workout top it looks like a quality one. That said, if it bothers you that much it wouldn't be difficult to stick a couple of stitches in there to tack the fabric up. Do whatever makes you happy!

Seriously lulu....time for a new design team!

I'm just surprised, with such a large following, more people aren't tired of the same styles over and over....I don't want the same items in 5 shades of purple or 9 different colors. Lulu has become more and more boring for me. Come out with some fresh patterns, or something that has pretty buttons down the front. I don't want shorts that are so skin tight...I have CT to the 90th degree or the shorts are so skimpy....I can just wear them in the bedroom. LOL.... their styles aren't unique or fresh anymore.

I don't think Lululemon's big problem is tired old styles. Look at all the wacky stuff they've come out with recently...the Hot but Not tank, the Some Like It Hot tank, etc. You can't call those the same-old same-old. If they didn't make some of the traditional favorites, like the NLT, a lot of people wouldn't be buying anything at all. They keep making those products for a reason--they look good on a lot of people and people buy them.

That being said, the NLT looks awful on me. I always try them on whenever a new color comes out, and somehow I always dislike the way I look in them. Please bring back the Push UR Limits, lulu. In a non-bleeding color. With good, even, sturdy seams. In a non-sheer fabric. Without goofy dots or flowers.

MB said...

Agree with anon 1:01pm. I don't think the issue is Lulu only doing the same styles over and over. I think the problem may be that Lulu is trying to do TOO much new stuff. Some of it is great, but there a lot of misses in there too. I would rather have fewer styles but more consistency (getting rid of bleeding issues, weird design changes--- I will be cursing the triangle gusset until the end of time). That said I have liked some of the wackier stuff, though it's certainly not trying to appeal to the entire audience.

I bought a size down Caspian blue NLT last night, there was only one left.

The Caspian blue is more pale like the third photo, not as vibrant (SADLY!) as the other photos. But it still looked great and was my first purchase in a long time.

Just wish they could get us some decent blues again. I would pay some cold hard cash for those babies and they would break my lulu slump. Assuming they didn't bleed or fray or snag or have crap seams, LOL.

I went to my local store a couple days ago, excited to buy both the Caspian Blue and Pow Pink NL, but I left with just the pink. Caspian is quite pale and a bit washed out. It wasn't the blue I was expecting. Considering that I have quite a few NL tanks, I decided to buy just the brighter color. I also tried on the Trinity Bra. So cute, but it definitely wants to ride up in the back. I passed on it. I'm a 34A. Vicki

I wouldn't mind if they brought some of their older stuff back, with some updates - Spark tank but longer and with cup pockets, Dance Twisted tank, 3 Set Tank. They have a lot of cute older stuff they could mine. I think the Namaste and Scoop Me were nice additions to the line this year - flattering on a variety of shapes. Lots of people would love if the All Sport bra came back. I would love if something like the Knock Out shorts came back.

what happened to the currant sss and lss?

@7:30a.m., this has happened to me twice in a month's time -- store product arrival notices announcing something that is not there. And they never did arrive. Why do they announce what isn't there yet?
