105F Singlet Photos and More

Photos of the 105F Singlet, new quilted Boogie Shorts, and the Bordeaux Drama Wunder Under pants. I am so curious to try on the singlet but it seems to run huge in the armpits. I think it's a size-down top, at least one size.

New luxtreme shorts. Similar to the Boogie Shorts. (Thanks to Ms. C for the photo.)

The bordeaux drama is not my favorite. I have a natural tan so it does not flatter my skin tone. It is bland to me but I know it is a good color for the coming seasons. Leggings wise, I think LLL tights are too expensive for this use. I never work out in pants since I get too hot. Pass on the pants.
I tried on my turbo tanks in bordeaux and angel blue. They are somewhat blah to me. I like that it's a different style from any other brands out there but it just does not do it for me this time. I don't remember the last time I wore my older ones. I am feeling I'll return them specially if there's good ones this coming upload. I'm curious about the singlet. I want to know more about the 105 line.
BTW, I bought the Om tote in currant last week at the store. I love the color anyway but this tote is very pretty and useful with all the pockets and compartments. The currant is deeper and looks sophisticated. I am so happy I saw it.
My store had a lot of the porcelain studio and astro crops on MD. They are totally out of swiftly racer backs in my size (4). No replenishment in 2 weeks!!

I love this singlet and the Bordeaux color! I wonder how thin the material is though and if the quality is worth it. I went into Lulu this wknd to buy the angel blue racerback but dis not end up purchasing it bc the luon was sooooo thin it was laughable.

I like the singlet but it will be too low in the front for me.

Jenny- Thanks for making me feel better. I missed the tank online. Now I don't feel so bad.

I'd like to see the Bordeaux if it comes out in a CRB. It might match my maroon and gold Griffindor socks!

Thanks for the photos! I like seeing the clothes on a variety of people. Where do you find the pics?

@Jenny - totally agree with you on the "thinness" of the Angel Blue CRB - ridiculousness. $48.00 HUH? I was in Costco today and purchased the Kirkland "space dye" CRB in the color "orange" - this Fulu-version (thanks to the previous blogger who LOL named it FULU) is similar to the pop orange. I missed the lulu pop orange CRB but now have the Fulu pop orange. The fabric is nice- it is NOT see through - it is substantial, all the seams look good and the fit is long and lean. The small is slightly larger than a Lulu CRB 4 - but I am happy with my $12.00 FULU pop orange (goes nice with the dune DSC and the Dune Play in the Sun shorts) Now I just need to stalk another Costco and find a Fulu Angel Blue (fulu space dye blue) CRB in a size small. I think it will be a nice alternative to the flimsey, thin Lulu Angel Blue CRB.

I tried on the Bordeaux WU today. I recently bought the Rest Day Pullover and the model was wearing them. A simple combo, but perfect for fall. I bought the WU (my first pair!). Loved that they weren't black, but not too light either as some colours show every lump and bump.

Also bought the coordinating 105F bra. My store was out of my usual size 6, so I went to an 8 and it fit really well. I'm small banded but larger busted (32DD/DDD). The band fit snugly enough with good coverage in the cups. I figured the 6 might have been too revealing anyways.

Pass on the 105 singlet. I'd rather have and wait for another CRB color that I love. On the Angel Blue CRB: it is made of luon light per the hang tag. It is soft & silky and lovely. One of the best colors ever. I have no concerns about transparency issues even when it gets sweaty in hot yoga and running.

Oooh luxtreme shorts in Bordeaux!? I would kill for some Inspires in that color too!!!

I have the Angel Blue crb and I don't find it to be see through. With it being made of luon light, it's extremely soft, silky and comfortable. I love it. I really don't find it flimsy or thin at all.

This color is very similar to Oxblood! A totally on trend and beautiful Fall color! LLL, IMO, is back on track!!!!! And, no I do not work for the company and I have sent many poor quality pieces back in the past 8 months! But feel like LLL has got its groove back!

luxtreme shorts in boogie-length? That is exactly what i've been hoping for! While i'm not crazy about the Bordeaux WU (just bought the caspian ziggies and have a few other neutral/black pairs) I could definitely invest in some luxtreme Bordeaux shorts... want want want! Anyone have fit information on these??

OT -- Zulily having sale on Ivivva --

Shopping tip -- purchase one item and then go back and purchase the rest -- same day shipping is free and one item is cheaper to ship than the whole order

Aren't all of the CRBs made of Luon Light? I have been buying them for years and the hang tag on all the ones I have indicated they are Luon light. I think the issue with the Angel Blue is the polyester content with the light color. It is definitely more see through than CRBs with no polyester.

I'm returning my Angel CRB, too. Love the color, but something about this CRB seems off. I guess that I haven't bought a CRB since April, but this new Angel one seems too long, too tight, too flimsy, and so forth. I'm not a fan. However, the new Angel singlet looks promising and I am bubbling with excitement over my bourdeaux drama WUs which should arrive tomorrow! Yay, back on track? I haven't heard bleeding complaints in a while either.

I really like the look of this singlet, but I'm not sure about the material. I prefer silverscent for the really hot weather running tanks. I'll probably give it a try in at least one color though, especially because the bordeaux is so great for us paler chicks heading into fall :)

No, not all CRBs just like not all Power Y's are made of the same luon

I bought a beautiful pigment blue crb today that says luon light but feels more substantial than my angel crb by far. Also saw the 105 bordeaux crops but didn't pull the trigger. Back seams on pants always have a strange way of bunching up but maybe I'll pick it up after more thought. I did also get a Track Time
jacket that seemed liked a timless and clean look in white.

OT, but I have a question for any runners. Do you get more use out of a define (does anyone even run in a define?) or rulu running pullovers? Which ones hold up better to regular use?

Is bordeaux really a good color for pale skin? My skin is on the pale side and my first thought upon seeing bordeaux drama was that it probably wouldn't look that great against my skin so lucky me that I don't care for it. I've never understood the whole warm/cool skin tone and color thing though (and believe me, I've tried) so I could be completely off base. Does anyone know what the general rule or guidelines are? Clearly people should wear what they like (i.e., if I think it looks good and I like it, then I'm wearing it), but I'm curious to know what the general consensus is...is bordeaux drama a color that compliments pale skin or is it better left for those with more color?

Regarding the Angel Blue CRB: I absolutely adore mine!! Very surprised so many have been unhappy. I've never been that in to the CRB...4 is a little too fitted for my comfort and 6 is way too big such that it is very obviously baggy. I love Angel Blue so much that I decided to try on the Angel CRB. I was (and still am!) in L-O-V-E with this CRB! Fit is perfect - not at all tight in my usual size 4 - and fabric is soft. The fabric is not quite as thick as some of my other CRBs, but that is perhaps what I love most about this tank (besides the color!). I definitely wouldn't call it thin by any means. And it is certainly not see through if worn in the proper size. I don't like my CRBs (or any of my other tanks/tops for that matter) to be skin tight, but I can see how this tank might be a problem for those who do. Those who are comfortable in tanks that fit a little looser (not loose, just a little looser than skin tight) may benefit from sizing up? Hope this helps!

@anon 2:20 - The fit of the angel blue crb is the same, but the fabric is thinner. It is just slightly sheer and that is not due to wearing the wrong size. I am a 4 by the size chart and in all lululemon items and it is a little sheer for me, especially across the chest. I shouldn't have to buy it baggy to avoid this, as I prefer a nice body-skimming (not tight) fit. It is a bit of a quality issue, but I still plan to keep mine. The thinner fabric could be better for sweat. I'm just thinking it looks cheaper than other crb's.
