Those saggy pants just make me want to say "Hammer Time" and barf. Took them forever to get them off of WMTM - so, let's make more! Ugh! Also, I really don't get the tanks with the different hem lengths.... Come on Lulu - make some basic cool racerbacks in bright colors that don't bleed. Also, make sports bras for those of is who like to do more than go Ohmmmm. Please!

All of it is a very easy "pass" for me. Although, the girl in the bottom pic looks adorable and makes me wish I did yoga!

Good thing none of this excites me. Flowy shirts aren't my thing :) Neither are short ones. My wallet will remain happy... for now!

WHY?! WHY?! WHY are there more saggy crotch pants?!?! Really? Seriously? ENOUGH! I'm just baffled.

I do, however, like the silver power y!

Those Caspian blue shorts will be mine! Muahahahaha. As for the rest - same old saggy, odd, over-priced "our design team is on bath salts" designs that I've come to expect from lulu. Sad days!!

I personally like the design if not for the wrinkly material. Same reason why I passed on the Find Bliss tank.

I wonder if anyone in their "design team" actually practice yoga... this really isn't practical. I can just imagine the tank coming over my head during a headstand or a down dog. Ugh.

A little OT - but I find the mirage print is totally different on different fabrics. On the Run: Bound Bra (Luxtreme) and the Run: Light as Air Shorts (Luxtreme and Swift?) and the Flow Y Bra (Luon), there is no real Pow Pink in the Pattern. Instead, it's almost like the Pow PInk and Pop Orange part of the pattern are blended, to make a different salmon coloured pink - in fact, it perfectly matches the old Razzmatazz Swiftly in my closet.

But on the Roll Down shorts and the Scarf/Dress thing (which is very cute in Mirage, by the way) there are streaks of BRIGHT pow pink, like highlighter bright, and pop orange streaks separately...not kinda blended together.

Just thought it was odd.

I agree that the flowiness of the Venus tank--and the fabric--are the biggest drawbacks. I couldn't wear that tank to yoga and do any type of inverted poses. I don't think it's the right style for running. Perhaps I could use it for something like a cardio blast class. But why buy something that's so limited in its function? I can wear a Power Y to almost anything. Same for a Swiftly short sleeve t-shirt. Or a tank that has a drawstring or cord at the bottom.

i could use a tank like that for zumba, bodystep, weightlifting, and walking. i'm BIG into walking lol you'd think i was 89, i'm actually 27:)

i really like that dark blue color (venus crops). now....is that indigo or a new color?

Ugh. Every dang time I see that jacket, I fear a 5th grader has been mugged of their jacket and it's now on a grown woman.

Come on! EVERYTHING is awful! The only exception is the Indigo (?) Venus crops and I'd still need to see them in person. The grey are hideous. Run for your money in seaside dot (or whatever), are you kidding? Run SAVE your money is what the message is. Gross, caspian/baby blue shorts...what's the inspiration - teenage years in 1980?

I swear it is one big experiment! The LLL designers have got to be saying: how ugly can we make it and let's watch them buy ANYTHING. I can't imagine being a LLL designer, leaving LLL and them showing any of this as part of your design portfolio...you'd have no credibility and would have to be hugely embarrassed.

That jacket is totally the jacket of a 5th grader in 1980!


The ONLY item that rocks in the pics are those Nike Frees!

Venus Tank: I'd be all over it if I was pregnant.

Carolyn said...

Not digging the longer length tops. Even the scoop me up tank and wandering yogi tanks are too long for me. I'd have to get them hemmed for my 4'11" frame.

Hoping for some power purple to arrive tonight.

OT - should be getting my mirage print WU crops in tomorrow or Wednesday. Pretty curious as to how they're going to look since everyone who ordered them got an email stating the print is messed up.

The venus tank is a high support tank - I think it's designed with runners in mind! Nice flow to hide the midsection, light and flow-y to keep you cool but a high support to keep you safe!

Easy pass. Thanks, Lulu.

Saw a lift and separate bra in you guessed it, flash! With a black mesh back, of course. I kind of like the fit of this bra. I'm a 34d, and thought it did run tts. I asked for cups, though.... I give Lulu enough money, they can at least give me the cups.

The caspian blue shorts are cute, I wish they came in another style! Running shorts without a liner are totally useless.

And is it just me, or are the elevation shorts at least one size too small on the girl in the blue swiftly tank? She is tiny and super cute, but my eyes are instantly drawn to how the shorts are pulling and they just look too tight. Do most people wear them like this and I need a style-update kick in my granny pants?

Minda said...

Anon 8:07 just wear your shorts where it is comfortable for YOU! Some days I'm a Granny other days I'm a DIVA! Pick the colors and fabrics that make you happy and comfy to be your happiest and best no matter what workout you are into!
- this is all about you. It is what you enjoy and how you will craft a flawless definition of yourself through everything you touch.

YES- I went to the deep place with shorts decisions!!!
SEE WHAT THE INKBLOTS DO TO MEEE?!!! Its Psychology Rorsch

Not impressed... I would be interested in a Caspian Blue Rehearsal LS or other soft and gentle LS top for fall but they don't make new "old stuff" anymore. :P Just plenty of new saggy bottom pants - bleh!

I really would like to see some new fun CRB colors and more colors on the basics.

Anonymous said...

anon 7:56 PM...err OK, if that works for you. Not for THIS runner. Would never choose it for running and I've nothing to hide. The Venus tank makes no sense to me for running or yoga...except Restorative yoga...and even then you could still end up with issues with the top not being appropriate.

Anonymous said...

@anon 8:01; the lift and separate bra doesn't have pockets for the cups. (the black one and white WAFS ones didn't, maybe the ray colour has them?)
good luck!

I will be sleeping through the night!

Maybe signing off forever.....

OT- Are there any Speed Short junkies out there who could list a few of the colors/prints that came in the softer 4 way stretch fabric? I'm new to Speed's and have the Porcelaine Beachy Floral ones which are nice and soft... and the new silver and white stripe which a super stiff. Both say 4-way stretch on the tag... not sure if this is correct?
Also how do you go about getting the terrible creases out of the stiffer fabric?!?
Thanks so much :)

Jennifer K. said...

Yay! I like the sun sprinters, but I haven't worn them for a workout yet. I'll have to try them in action to see if I want to get the pink ones.

Concur w/ the post about some kind of experiment- see how ugly they can make this stuff and watch the cattle (they must laugh at us) buy anything!!!!!!!!! except the savy people on here of course- i'll triple pass- that tank w/ the back longer than the front- fugly!!! all of it is! It makes me mad!!!!

Anonymous said...

Minda are those WU on your profile pic? I LOVE the print :)

Anonymous said...

Maybe the reason why they're making all these new tops longer is so we can hide CT issues with their new pro-CT bottoms...

Minda said...

Anon 8:54 pm Hello! yes! They are Inkblot print Wunder Unders! I commit to full leg craziness!! They are so fun =D

SO FUNNY ! :) I HATE THE NEW TRIANGLE GUSSET !

@ anon 6:58 pm - LOL "our design team is on bath salts"

LuluAddict said...

I see the Venus tank as being more for running, spin, and cardio rather than yoga.

Anonymous said...

If it is one big experiment then you'd think the harem pant experiment would be over by now...I mean have you EVER seen anybody out wearing them?

Kelly B said...

I'd really like to see if the Deep Indigo Venus Crops give camel toe, but in every dang photo, they are worn with one of those stupid long tops so I can't tell!

Anonymous said...

harem pants are super popular right now I like the new crops, but I already own a few so I wont buy those. vitasea has a great soft feel. I do have to say that you have to have the right body and attitude to walk around in those pants.

DebbieTurko said...

There making those harem pants so no one can complain about CT!!!!!

Stop making the diaper pants, lulu...

Anonymous said...

The saggy dirty diaper look will never be popular. Terrible look on everyone. Have they learned nothing from having to put all the other similar type pants on the WMTM? Oh well, lulu's loss in sales.
