Upload!!

Wow, so many tempting things tonight. I ordered the Pow and Pop Orange Cool Racerbacks and the Pow Light Swiftly. I think the Pow Swiftly is a keeper for sure. Not so sure about the other CRBs. I was tempted to get the Heathered Deep Indigo Diversity Wunder Unders but I did enough damage for tonight. I also like the Fossil Bangbuster but I can live without it. However, if a Mirage Print Bangbuster comes out, it's mine. I also like the Om Your Heart Out Scarf but for the money I'd rather buy another Swiftly tank. What did you all get tonight?

Pow Pink CRB and I'm going to try the Gather and Crow, one reg and one denim. Any experience with these? Are the denim ones quite a bit stiffer? I'm worried they may be too heavy for summer heat.

I wasn't a fan of the Covers It All dress but the video is cute. For a while there I was tempted to get one. :)

Tempted by the heathered deep indigo Diversity WUC but I already have the same color in the original WUC.

Would just like to mention that the web model wearing the Pow Pink Diversity Wunder Unders has a CAMEL TOE and you can vaguely see the outline of her thong in the back. Sigh.

I was going to order a pop orange Power Y but it's the Luon light :(

Nada tonight, but the credit card needed a break! Like the flash light turbos though, but can live without them. Where is that bb crb?

The mirage deep indigo/white boogie shorts looks cute but I'm afraid it's going to be like that dot-placement-issue. Don't want to end up with shorts that's mostly white.

Nothing for me. Interesting that Clam Digger II crops are back online. Finally got rid of the smell? :)

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me yet - really wanted that BB CRB. And the mysteriously disappearing BB swiftly racerback. think I would have ordered the pow pink swiftly if it weren't pow pink light? Tempted by pow pink CRB but not sure how much wear I'll get out of it - I don't work out in them.

Also I would LOVE those mirage speeds if they were regular not naked seam. The pattern on them is so awesome! I also want some clam diggers but not heatgered and not black! Would like a solid coal, or a white denim would be awesome! I need to visit an actual store soon : (

Does anyone know how the new halter fits compared to the Namaste tank? Is it smaller because of those tight straps around the back?!?
Also is the layering tee a tts or size down top?
Thanks!

anonymous me said...

The unfortunate model of the pre-bled mirage diversity WUC also appears to be sporting lulu's newest patent, the 'we deny it!' camel toe (tm).

I happily grabbed a pow pink my mantra, but left it at that. I do very little online ordering anymore. With the quality issues of late, I'm largely staying away from anything I haven't tried on in store first.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 11:32 pm - the denim luons used to be stiff but I it's much softer/stretchier these days. My denim indigo Wunder Unders are really nice. That being said I haven't seen the denim gather and crows in person yet so can't say for sure.

LuluLily said...

Ordered Energy Bra, Flash Light Turbo shorts, and... Covers it all Mini. I have no idea if I'll end up keeping a single item since I haven't tried on 2/3 pieces. I like the shorter length of the mini dress, and love that the print reverses to a solid/ heathered navy.

Being petite and 32D, I'm really hoping that the Energy Bra works for me. *fingers crossed*

I was tempted by the pop orange CRB but am worried about sheerness. Guess I'll wait and see what the stores get.

Anonymous said...

I ordered layering tee in two sizes (ugh, hate paying for return shipping, but I'm 4 hours one-way from nearest store!) as I really like it in pictures but no idea how it runs size-wise. Also Om scarf - I only have one other scarf and love polka dots and don't have any! Indigo scoop me up, fingers crossed it fits as that's my attempt at branching out into new colors...might have tried BB CRB if it had been uploaded but that's a big jump for me (like my blacks and grays not these bright colors, though they look great on others!) First upload purchases in 5 weeks so fingers crossed I like them!

I also randomly found a method wrap in a store last month, score!

Goodnight all!

I got the Pow Pink and Pop Orange CRB and like LLL i was SO tempted to get the diversity Wu in the heathered deep indigo, but decided i could live without them. I did also order the flast light turbos, too cute to resist!! If that pink striped pattern of those shorts comes along soon my wallet is in major trouble!!

Melissa said...

Just a diversity Lucky Luon headband. I'm not loving that print in anything else. I do actually like the print, I just... I don't like it in clothing? I don't know!

I am tempted by the denim In Stride, but I received my bruised berry/embossed dot In Stride and that's enough for now! I was lucky and was sent a really good pattern of dots. Only in one area do they shrink, they are almost uniform.

yogibabe said...

CRBs in Pow and Pop and the Power y light in the Mirage print. Still on the fence for the WU Diversity in Mirage. Love the print on WU but not the Diversity....

Anonymous said...

Uuu trying out the mirage print boogie shorts. I was tempted for the speed shorts but for crossfit I find the boogie ones more comfortable. Hope they are not super see through. And I'll also get a pow pink racing tank because I'm too short (4'11") and the normal tanks are really long on me.

Pow Pink CRB and Swiftly, Pop Orange Crb, the silver striped speeds and run in the sun shorts. Out of control!

Does anyone know if the mirage print will be coming in regular WUs? I'm not a fan of the diversity at all, but I love the print!

And what is the difference between the naked seam and regular shorts?

Laurie said...

Wandering Yogi Bra in pow pink, Free To Be Bra in bruised berry, Covers It All Dress *Mini, Om Your Heart Out Scarf in white, and Wandering Yogi Halter in pop orange.

Woof.

Anonymous said...

Just the striped speeds for me. I like that they're a neutral color but the strips still make them fun. They'll go good with all of these bright tops I have.

Anonymous said...

Am I the only one who dared to order the One For Om Leotard? I love the idea of doing yoga in something that is backless but still have a front cover. This is it. I will wear it at the beginning of class with some burnout tee or even the lulu manifesto long sleeved white top.
I'm 34BBC (Barely B Cup!) so I don't need much support up there. Also, hopefully no more hiking up WU working out in the leotard.

In addition that that, I got the new halter in Pow and Pop, and the CRB in Pop, even when I do have the Dazzling but this one is heathered. And I die for orange colours.

Anonymous said...

The mirage print mini was so tempting but feel its something I need to try on first. Got the pp crb and mirage diversity tank. I hope I like the diversity tank fabric, I was tempted by the power y but there was hardly any print on it. I also wanted the pp manta long slv but $68 is too much for what looks like a very thin tee. The mirage wu are cute but you can see the models underwear in the rear photo, really?

Cari H said...

Pow pink and pop orange crb's, the mirage power y and lucky Luon mirage headband. Way more than I anticipated!

Anonymous said...

The Covers it all mini dress when the top half is folded down, looks just like the apron European waitress wear! Cute dress but trying to find a new look folding in such a way, is a long stretch lulu!!

For some weird reason I got a confirmation number when placing my order (on my phone at 3:30am), but in the morning realized I hadn't received a confirmation email and my card was not charged....Has this happened to anyone? I just placed the order again and this time I did get a confirmation email so I think I'm ok now but I am still wondering what happened the first time...

where are all the cute colored speeds?? I hope those red ones come out next week!! I feel like they keep coming out with the cute colors on the "naked seem" speeds which no one wants! LuLu- it has TWO stars, no one wants to buy it!! Alright- there is my ran :-/. If anyone has a different opinion on the naked seem speeds I would love to hear it, the reviews are so aweful but maybe people are being to harsh.

Anonymous said...

whoops, i guess they are pink striped speeds not red ones :). the color on my phone never shows up exactly right.

Anonymous said...

Is it just me or do the pink striped shorts look too long to be speeds? I am obsessed with speeds though so I hope they are!

I got the speeds, the mirage power y bra, and the pop CRB.

Would like to get the Perfect Layer tee but not sure what size to get, can anyone help? Looks like it might run large?

Also, considering the deep indigo diversity WUs, but do we think they are see through?

THANKS!

Minda said...

Good Morning Bloggerettes! Blogtoids! Bloglings! OH dear- these are not flattering nicknames! heeee!
-Well nothing for me this morning on the upload. I thought about all that POW I was drooling over, but I have a racing length pow crb already, When I inspected the LS my mantra I realized it has an unfinished hem on the bottom also Diversity WU in POW =( I just can't deal with that again. My full expression T is unfinished and is non stop scraggly unraveling I have to give it a haircut every time I wear it. I prefer to look more polished than the unfinished hem look. -- Just me! I know some others can rock it out. . . but it just makes me FEEL bedraggled with tentacles. lol

Maybe I will get the pow pink Light swiftly tank and pow technithong- I really like those.

Those striped leggies on the banner of the pants page caught my attention! ok take care and have a wonderful day =D

Anonymous said...

The diversity heathered indigo wu are tempting but i had regular deep indigo wu. Does anyone know how the two compare? I dont wanna get them if they ate too similiar.

Anonymous said...

Just the Gather & Crow Crops in deep indigo/deep indigo mirage for me. I wanted SOMETHING with the mirage print, and a simple waistband seemed like a good bet. Plus I've been wanting some bottoms in deep indigo for a while, so it seemed like a good fit!

Wanted to get a top but all the colors are too neon/bright for my skin...the green-->purple range of the spectrum looks better on me than pinks and orange!

Jill said...

I placed the exact order, with the exception of the swiftly, which I considered but didn't order. I actually don't have any CRBs so I hope I like them.

Sourkraut said...

@Minda, loving your new avatar! The last one was super cute and fierce but this one makes you look like a mysterious super spy, like someone out of Kill Bill.

@Anon 5:32 AM -- So glad to hear you say that about the colors as I feel the exact same way. To the point where I'm now a little frustrated that I can't get my Lulu fix since I know those colors won't look good on me and/or I simply don't like them. Except for bruised berry, which hasn't been used in the items I want, Lulu seems stuck in a rut with their recent colors. I guess that means I'll probably have to wait until the fall for Lulu to come out with some flattering colors for the likes of me. I realize this is a silly problem to have but I still wish I could take advantage of some of the new, cute designs.

So tempted by the Wanderful Flare pant, especially with that denim fabric, but I know that with my large hips a flare can be dicey. If my store has 'em the next time I'm there I'll try them on. Otherwise it's a pass. I seem to be the only one around here who likes those from the pictures. What gives? Do y'all know something I don't?

I didn't buy anything this AM. Which is silly because I half woke up at 6:15 (alarm is set for 6:45) and debated whether or not I should get up and shop or get that extra half hour of sleep. Sleep won out but I spent the next 30 minutes dreaming that I was shopping online at Lulu. I am so brainwashed!

KS said...

I ordered a pink swiftly tank. I really wanted the mirage speeds but I didn't realize they were going to be naked seam ones! So is disappointed about that!!

Minda said...

Hi Sourkraut! Thanks for the sweet compliment!! I am a workout gear super spy!! Lolol! Anyway I think the deal with people not liking the flares as much is because of how the flares accentuate the body differently. Close cut and tapered down or straight leg is so IN now. Everyone likes that clean streamlined look where flares pop the booty cut in on the thigh and knee then pop out again. Depending on body shape it can make people look shorter and stockier than they really are. This seems to be only the effect if the flares are big. If its a slight flaring like a skinny boot cut it can give a lengthened leg look. Anyway it's just a preference thing. If that style is flattering for your body shape go rock em out girl!!!

Sourkraut said...

@Minda, aah, thanks for the explanation. I will admit that if the flare's not done right it can make a pear-shaped gal like me look short and dumpy. I'll just have to hope my store gets them in stock so I can try them there. I won't hold out much hope since my store seems about three weeks behind the online uploads and even then doesn't get everything in stock.

Anonymous said...

I ordered the pow mantra ls. My husband bought be the light pink a month ago and nearly had a fit when I found out how much it was! I have to say, I absolutely love it. So soft and flattering. Now is the perfect time to wear it.... I work out in a tank, then put this over it to keep me somewhat warmer in all these places with ac! I don't mind spending the extra $ if I know I will wear it AND is good quality. Also, unfinished hem seems to stay in place.

Anonymous said...

@anon 3:54 I too placed my order about 45 min after the upload, and six hours later have not received a confirmation. I contacted lululemon and the educator confirmed my order "looks OK" in their system. Let's hope it's true. And if not, it's ok too, I am not going to let a few workout pieces stress me out. I'm sure I'll find something else next week again. This is my new attitude now.

Pow pink CRB just bled onto my other laundry AFTER I washed it with a color catcher! Unbelievable!

Ingenue said...

Anon @6:49 - or anyone else familiar with it - Did you get your regular Lulu size for the Mantra ls? I'm debating sizing down. I don't want skintight, but I do like a fitted look. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

My win for the night: I SLEPT THROUGH THE UPLOAD!!! Go me! I've been waking up in the wee hours on Mondays (no alarm needed), cruising the What's New page, and not sleeping due to worry about what to get/did I get the right thing even after I placed my 2 a.m. order. It's been ruining my Tuesdays for months now! But I am not interested in any of the Wandering stuff, I'm pretty set with running gear for the time being, and as much as I love these new bright CRBs I'm too scared of bleeding to purchase them.
Sidenote: I love the "brush stroke" part of the Mirage print but I hate the floral? part at the bottom ofthe tanks. And, I hate that the top of the tanks are white. I love the look of the Y flow bra and the speed shorts, but I need a more supportive bra style and turbo shorts. Lulu, please consider the Inner Heart Bra and Turbos in mirage!!!! That will wake me up at 2 a.m. Again for sure!!

Katie said...

Whole lotta notta for me...again. This bleeding/ quality issue plot thickens. It has halted my buying. I didn't even get the BB BB bc I don't want purple hair. I am in love with the sneak peak of those pink stripped speeds....but after hearing about th ray speeds I don't know anymore. It is all so sad.

Nicole said...

I ended up with the striped speeds, pop CRB, Pow Light Swiftly Tank and 2 layering t's. Want to try crops/pants in store so held off.

Looking forward to more colorful speeds :) I have several pairs and have never had bleeding issues with them (blues/pinks/etc) so hoping it stays that way. Love speed shorts!

Looking forward to the greenish/blue colored CRB too! Love me some oranges and blues

Anonymous said...

@anon 6:57
The educator told me she could not see my first order at all... but only the second one I did get a confirmation email for. I do see two pending transactions on my credit card but she said it could be a pre authorization but that the first order never actually went through?

I kind of wanted to cancel my second order but I am going to be pissed if in fact the first one never went through. HOWEVER, I will also be pissed if I get charged twice, get two identical orders and then have to return one... and wait for a refund. idk what to do... I think im just going to wait. its a credit card so its not like I have to pay it right away anyways

Anonymous said...

I'm losing track of what bleeds and what doesn't - does pop orange bleed? I ordered the crb and the heathered power y, but will only keep one. Also going to try the energy bra. Still tempted by the denim indigo in stride....

Sourkraut said...

Oh how my tune has changed! You know how people get buyer's remorse? I think Lulu is the only company that inspires non-buyer's remorse. I know I talked big this morning about not needing the Wanderful Flares but now that the black denim is sold out I'm feeling sad. Damn! I should have just ordered and risked having to return them. I'm going to take this as a sign that I don't need to spend $100 on some workout pants. Right?

Anonymous said...

@Anon 8:47 - you can ask them to reverse the first pre-authorization charge from your credit card. I had cancelled an order once but there was already a pre-authorization on my card. When asked they told me that if they just don't go through and 'authorize' the charge, it will just be automatically cancelled. Now this can take up to 30 days which could be a problem since the amount will be on 'hold' from your credit. I asked them to reverse the pre-authorization so I wouldn't have to wait for 30 days (and likely forget about it!). It still took them days to fulfill it but better then 30.

Jamie Barba said...

So far just a fossil bang buster for me. I really want the pow swiftly tank and something in pop orange, but I also really want to use my R&D discount. Guess I'll hold off & see if they get them in our local showroom this week.

Anonymous said...

@anon 910 I would ask them to reverse the pre authorization but for some reason that order does not appear anywhere on the lulu database...It's super confusing . or did you mean ask my bank?

Anon 7:42: that’s awesome! I get up just before 5 a.m. every morning to walk my dog before getting ready for work but before when I used to wait for the upload I would get up at 4:30 or 4:20. It would make me tired for the rest of the week. This morning I didn’t bother and then realized on my way to work that I’d totally forgot that there even was an upload! I’m feeling proud of myself. I love lulu but I think it was a bit unhealthy for me to be quite as obsessed as I was before.

@sourkraut: you don't need to spend $100 on workout pants :)

elodie said...

@Sourkrout, it's a sign that there's something more Wanderful in store for you next week! :) If there's one truth in this world, it's this: there will always be more cute lulu. Or Beyond Yoga, or Splits 59, or Zella, or Athleta...

I haven't bought anything since the wee space April CRB. Nothing has really rocked my closet, and the bleeders are sucking the fun out of it for me, but I have faith that there will be cute lulu for me in one of these uploads.

Anonymous said...

@ Sourkraut 8:58 AM, just be relaxed about it. Go with your original plan to try on in store before you buy. They may not arrive this week in store, but they will show up. I can't imagine this pant not making it to the store. If they don't, then you don't need them. Just because they sell out online does not mean you can't still get them. I see stuff and sizes sell out online all the time but still in store weeks and months later.

Sourkraut said...

@ Anon 9:54 AM & elodie -- Thanks! That's the sort of affirmation I need in my life. A nice contrast to all of the enabling that usually goes on around here. :D

Ok...just got my 2 orders from last week , the deep indigo clam diggers, still have a slight funky smell i could probably live with if I could wash it out, but there is also a weird feel to them they are going back, the sun sprinter shorts were o.k, but they felt a little short in the rise, but for $52 if they don't feel great I don't want them,and I ordered 2 lift & separate bras, 1 in 36 DD and one in 38D ( I am between a 36-38 DD ), the 36 DD felt great around ribs, but the cups were wayyyyyyy to small, and the 38D was to big around the ribs, but the cups didn't fit either, so all is going back and I have nothing new :(

i'm actually tempted by the mini covers it all dress. i like the shorter length and really like the mirage print here. but i think i'll try it in store first.

Fyi, comments are showing up on the lulu facebook page regarding bleeding. Feel free to "like" or add your own! Those of us who have to rely on the online shopping because we don't live near a store should have our voices heard and lulu can't ignore facebook posts forever. Nothing for me today, too scared of dyes bleeding:-(

@ Anon 7:42-- I'm celebrating too! This is my third week to sleep through the upload. I was just like you--waking up without an alarm, then thinking about my choices for hours instead of sleeping. It drove me nuts because I was terrible on Tuesday. I hope I can continue this trend--at least until there is something worth losing sleep over!

To Anon 8:47 here is Anon 6:57

I didn't mispelled my my name or email address, and received the email confirmation about three hours ago.

What I always do after placing my online order, is going to my lulu account and check my "track order" link there. I did so today and I saw the new order was already showing in my account. That's why I didn't panic. I figured their systems was slow with the automated confirmation emails.

As for the two charges, the easiest and fastest way to get the charge dropped off your credit card, it to call and email the GEC right after you got the order number and cancel one of the two orders BEFORE their warehouse starts processing it. Once the vendor drops the charge, it will dissapear from your CC. AND if lululemon can't stop the order from being shipped out, as soon as you get the tracking number (assuming you do get one with Fedex) contact FEDEX immediately and REFUSE the pacakage before it gets delivered to you. Once you intercept the package, it will be send back to lululemon warehouse (and the same tracking number will be valid all the way, so you know when they got it and who signed for it). This way you don't pay for to return the entire parcel.

I have done this several times, it works.

Sophia said...

They're a 34 in inseam because the flare is so large it would be very unflattering on shorter legs, making you look even shorter. I'm sure lulu realized this and that's why the put it out in a long-legs only version.

Anyone tried the new Kira Grace brand yet? It just started in January. Supposedly the material feels a lot like luon and it's made in the US. However, it's way pricey. Tanks are $68

@Anon 9:48 - Anon9:10 here, my payment details didn't show up in Lulu either. The order went through (even shipped!) but they weren't able to capture payment details for that order. I asked Lulu to reverse payment details and they were able to do so. If they were able to pre-authorize then there has to be a record somewhere.

Melissa said...

Are they sheer? And how do they hold up in a hot practice?

Lulu can be careless at times with the payment details. One time I ordered clothes for just above $200, they shipped the items but my card was never charged for this order. Thank you lulu!

Sandra said...

I have the charcoal and they have the same rise as the wunder under but I do NOT recommend them for working out in. I LOVE mine for casual wear but I took them for a run today and got a sweaty crotch and bottom. Luckily I hate a long CRB to cover my lady parts.

Sandra said...

Charcoal diversity WU and they are tts and not sheer like the recent WU I have encountered. I Do NOT recommend for hot sweaty work outs because they have more cotton content than the regular luon WU. I do LOVE them for casual wear.

Anonymous said...

Yes, Lulu can sometimes be careless about payment details.

I called GEC once to try and cancel an order but couldn't when I found out it had already been shipped. Which was fine with me, I was all set to just go through with the purchase BUT when GEC realized payment wasn't captured, they were quick to cancel and re-route the shipment. :)
