NEW! Flip With No Flop Tank, Raspberry Glo Method Bag, and More

The Method Bag in Raspberry Glo Light/ Firey Red has hit North America.

New tank called the Flip With No Flop Tank revealed on the website. It's made to show off those great pectorals so it's definitely not for me. This tank reminds me a little of the Zobha Scarlett tank but the Zobha tank didn't expose nearly as much armpit. BTW Zobha has redone their website. Zobha and Kira Grace are my two favorite non-lulu workout wear brands. (I have reviews of Kira Grace's Yoga Halter, Sexy Tank, Y-Back Tank, Double Strap Tank, Knee Pant, and Flare Pant coming.) I also like Margarita when I am feeling especially colorful.

yuck, hate those high-necked tanks. then again, i'm on the smaller end of the boob spectrum, so i'm never worrying about them falling out/high necked tops make me look flat. maybe ladies with larger chests like these?

in other news, it took me about 3 solid minutes to make sense of that first armpit picture. i knew it was a photo of the forme jacket, but i coudln't for the life of me figure out where the body parts were/what was what...lol. weird.

@ sohpia - Speaking as a larger chested lady I think the high neck tanks tend make me look droopier than I already am.

I like the Spin It to Win It tank and the Right Round Tank for high-necked coverage. I would worry about some serious side boob with the new design. The straps don't look like they would provide much support either. Based only on looks I think this one would be a top for the less well-endowed ladies out there.

Additionally, I tried on the new forme jacket this weekend. I tried on my usual size and my impression was that it was looser pretty much all over and the sleeves were a bit longer than the define. It seemed like the luon was brushed (I tried the red one like the one in the picture) which might account for some of the pricing. Not a fan of the color blocking and I will be sticking with my beloved Defines for the time being. I'm glad I stocked up before they were all gone.

I'm also not a fan of the high neck tanks...

That bag color combo is really ugly (pink and red).

Not a fan of either the Forme or Daily Yoga jackets...they are a poor substitution for the Define and Stride.

If it ain't broke don't fix it!

LOVE the Flip With No Flop tank. it would be perfect for myself... although my shoulders are kinda wide but at least my girls won't be showing in class lol hope its not too short otherwise i'm not getting it :(

I have wide shoulders so these tanks won't work. Even though, I'm B cup, this could still give me side boobs or armpit fat, dislike!

This new tank looks like it will cover the front but what about the sides!! I've had sideboob in the vituous tank, spin it to win it tank and that spinning one they launched last May. Let's get some coverage on the sides please!

Yeah for high neck lines! Those of us with nice shoulders LOVE LOVE LOVE

@LLA - so sad! no one needs droopy boob! then who on earth is wearing this tank?!? maybe it's just the big fake boob gals

Athleta made a great high neck tank for several years that had a design on the chest that I really liked. (I'm a 34DD.) It was also cut more like the Zohba tank with wider straps and a higher back for support. These tiny straps just dig into my shoulders. ;(

Sandra said...

I think the Zhoba cut is a lot more flattering, I'm small but even before kids at (92 lbs) I still had armpit fat and a top like the flip w/o flop would emphasize that... Not a good look for me.

Jess said...

YIPPIE! Love a high neck and cut out shoulders! Great when you are well defined in the shoulders and "ripped" :)

La La Girl said...

Ooh! The Flip With No Flop Tank looks sexy and fun. Can't wait to try it on!

Focus said...

I like the high neck tanks, but mainly when I'm dieted down and my boobs are minimal. When I'm not, I agree with LLA, I feel droopy:/

I like the design of the tank. I think it might be a bit too high, but not enough to discourage me from getting it. I am 34D and I really hate cleavage popping out when I workout or when doing active stuff, it is really annoying and distracting. I can't wait to give this a try, hope they have better colors. I m so tired of pink and orange and black.

yuk i agree i don't likie on small or large ladies- i say just wear a bra underneith problem solved. i'm small and wear a bra because the cup inserts show thru the shirts on alot of tops- not all but alot. the fromm jackets are hidious to me the duck butt back i hate that look- the color blocking looks cheap- i hate that i hope it disappears soon? also seems like the hems on alot of things are going up (shorter) this is a big disappointment to me and i'm only 5 4- imagine how the taller ladies must feel? Zobha- yes i like them too i'll have to check out the other two mentioned! thanks

I cannot stand the new designs, the color blocking and the flimsy fabrics!! I purchased way too much these past 12 months--I LOVED everything! I justified it by saying one day Lululemon is going to come out with some things I don't like. Now I am so glad I have all that stuff--can start enjoying it now!! Lol!

I agree with the hems appearing to be shorter. I'm 5'10 and am finding myself gravitating to my CRB's lately. I would love to switch things up here! I would like to see the Back to Class jacket in more colors also(that jacket is great for taller ladies). More luon tops would be nice because luxtreme is awful cold in the winter especially if you're lifting weights right after cardio. Something like luon push your limits tank with a longer length. While I'm at it...more choices for the wunder unders that are nice and thick.
