so i bought a pretty pink flow y as a "neutral" colored bra to go underneath some of my lighter colored CRBs. i'm generally not a pale-pink girl...i don't own any of the other pale pink items lulu released, and so i bought this bra purely as a pragmatic piece. however, when i put it on...i LOVE the color on! so shocked! it's really really *pretty* (and aptly named it seems). it reminds me of ballet tights...that really pale pink. love it so much i went back and got the pretty pink crb, too. wearing it today underneath my pow pink define - awesome. pow and pretty look really nice together. so happy!

i think the crb fit tts, though on the tighter side of tts. i've never sized up or down in CRBs, but some are a bit looser while others are a bit tighter. i'd say this is one that is a bit tighter while still being tts...no need to size up unless you want something that is loose fitting. also, the heathered pretty pink flow y is SO SOFT!!!

Just got the bordeaux wunder under crops in the mail- they are so pretty, but even though I sized up they are completely sheer in the rear. I could read the tag through the pants, and I don't have much of a butt at all! So sad.

Booooooo to your virtue energy pant comment! I love them!

Wondering if anyone has seen the Heathered Bordeaux Drama SMU in person?

From the pictures it looks a little washed out.

Am I right or wrong?

TIA!

Not into these colors in general. I am hoping for a complete change in the color palette for this Christmas season.

I think a pretty pink/bd in stride would be lovely. Has there been a BD in stride yet?

What a bummer about the sheerness on Bordeaux crop. It surprises me that such a dark rich color would be sheer, the ray, flash etc makes sense but with this color there is no excuse!! I ordered the bordeaux tonka stripe and will be interested to see how they look and feel. I've been hoping for a softer wunder under like my black/wee stripe reversibles that I absolutely love!!!!

I just returned my BD WU crops due to the sheerness also :( Crazy cuz you can't tell by the pics AT ALL how sheer they are!!! Even though I too sized up. Oh well. I spent way too much on summer stuff anyway.

I got the bordeaux CRB and really like it! I ALWAYS wear a 6 and even though some people have been saying it's tight I think it's TTS. It's not thin like the angel blue and I think it might be my favorite one.
I also got the BD wunder under crops and I actually don't think they are see through, I did a pretty intense bend over test in them too, they seem to feel thicker than some other colors have recently. Maybe this is another batch where good ones are hit or miss.

Anon 2:59 & LLA - I also love the virtue energy pants and think they look good on folks - I opted for the all black and wear with dresses and ballet flats or high boots. Oddly they were a size down item for me. But if no one likes them, all the better for me if the other colors go to WMTM! :)

Second the above comment about the virtue energy pant...I think it looks good in all the pictures I've seen (unlike the Sattva and Low Rider). I live in my energize pants and have the presence pant too. Having that little bit of extra width at the bottom turns them into everyday wear rather than workout wear (wunder unders) AND they are long enough for me.

Good Morning ladies! BD Studio pants in size 4 and 6 on the US side if you are looking for them. :)

Can anyone help with a fit question? Do the groove shorts fit similiar to WU? Would you take the same size in both? I'm thinking to order the pigment pair but I've never tried them on? Thanks!

The solid Virtue Energy pants look fine but I don't think the two-tones are flattering on anyone.

i bought a pair of the 105 degree crops in the milky way print, i liked the look of the photos with black and wanted something a little different.

when i put my hand in them, i could see the rip tag right through, they are see through!

i read the reviews on the ll site and about half say they are see through and the other say not if you go tts. how on earth can it make a difference when i seriously just put my hand in them and barely stretched the fabric???

new wu crops same thing, 90 percent of the reviews say see through...then for some its not?? i do not believe its a sizing issue at all, i think they are see through but i do not understand the inconsistency.

my purple (dark indigo i think it was) wu crops are see through as well, summer release. i put my hand in them, same thing, could see the rip tag.

it was the last pair of wu i purchased.

@Jessie77: I find the Groove shorts to be TTS. I wear a 6 in WU's and 6 in Groove shorts.

@Anon3:10: I hated the way the Bordeaux Drama SMU tank looked in the pictures online. I went to try it on in person anyways, and I find it looks a lot better in person!

OT but want to share my frustration today with an order for the WU Pants in Deep Indigo Slub Denim with the Mirage Print on the inside of the waistband. Well, I had these in my wishlist like forever and the day they went on markdown for $59 I was traveling, so of course missed them. Today, a lonely pair emerged online, and just imagine my excitement when I realized it was exactly in my size. I did the fastest check out ever only to realize in the order confirmation email, that I had been charged full price!
I contated the GEC online chat immediately. And guess what I was told? "I'm sorry but I don't remember these WU Denim pants ever being on markdown. They are pulling up full price in my system" Grrr..

I insisted she should double check because I was positive they were on sale for $59. She promised to do so wiht the webteam and get back to me... next week.

So beware of the price if you see another pair of these ones online.

@Jessie - your size for WU and groove shorts should be the same. the rise on the groove shorts is a bit higher than WUs - the groove shorts have the same rise/waistband as the groove pants and wunder groove crops. if you've tried either of these, they fit exactly the same. if you've never tried the wunder grooves or groove pants, i'd say the rise is maybe 1 or 2 finger widths higher than wunder unders. i always find wunder unders too low - if i get them in the right size (6), they give me muffin top. if i size up to an 8, they fall down. wunder grooves/groove shorts on the other hand have no muffin top issues...that extra inch has them hit in just the right place so that the 6 doesn't give me MT, so i love them.

I agree with Anon September 22, 2012 9:09 AM, in regards to the bordeaux drama SMU. The color is much richer in person, beautiful! It also has a sort of shimmering, silken sheen too. I like it a lot. :)

And bordeaux drama in solid color is really nice. Was worried since some has mentioned that the color has a lot of brown in it. Glad I took the chance and snagged a Studio pants when it made an encore appearance last Thursday.

The pretty pink crb is so soft and pretty. I even bought a white bra to go under it. the pretty pink aphrodite tank is too see through. you can see the square pockets that contain the bra pads. Although the tank was really nice, maybe another color? The pigment blue tonka power y was so soft and the color amazing. i couldnt resist. i havent loved peices like i love these in a while.

Lavender In Strides still smell. I ordered one this summer and returned it because it smelled like rotten fish and the one I received today smelled exactly the same. I honestly think they are the same jackets from a couple months ago. I guess that is what I get for assuming Lulu actually rectified a problem.

Jessie77 said...

Thank you anon and Sophie for the help!

I think lulu needs to bring back the ebb and flow crops. Wouldn't those be pretty in Bordeaux? All these new bottoms are so ill-fitting...please bring back the E&F!

Ebb and flows in bordeaux would be nice.
