Comparison - Pink Shell to Bubbilicious

I remembered to take my Bubbilicous headband with me to the store so I could compare it to Pink Shell. It's quite a bit lighter. I'm trying to remember what old color comes closest to Shell Pink. Maybe Paradise but I think Shell Pink is pretty unique for lulu.

What. Is. That. Tank.
Is that a joke?

Which one? The Move Tank? That is a tank from ~2009.

LLA, is that shell crb comfy and soft or more poly? I recently touched the beaming blue and passed because it wasn't the as soft as my pop orange and the pop orange isn't heathered. I didn't like the ras glo, or recent pow pink crb based on touch either... It's been a while since I felt a nice feeling crb.

Pink shell reminds me of Lulu's first version of Pig Pink. They did Pig Pink in the old/original scuba. I think around 2007/8? It reminds me of that. I like it!

From that tank of 2009 I see that they reinvented themselves after that and have gone back to the hideous prints as of now! That is absolutely an ugly print

Love that pink shell colour. I'd gladly pay $128 for a define in this colour!!!

I have a CRB in HSMK - heathered smoky rose? It is neither too bright or too muted. I'll have to see Shell Pink in person, but I can probably pass. I know pinks are a winning colour for LLL, but it would be nice if the yellows (like burning yellow) would appear. I'd dig a nice mustard as well. Greens would be nice too. And not minty ones.

Love the chirp/persimmon move tank. I have a 6, but it's too tight. Keeping my eyes out for an 8. It's incredibly pretty and flattering in real life.

@ Sandra - It's a nylon/spandex tank - no polyester in it at all. It feels a lot like the Beaming Blue so if you didn't like that, you probably won't like this. The only problem with the super soft CRBs is that they tend to "suede" really easily so show wear quickly.

The Beaming Blue CRB is great: soft and thick. Of course my heathered ones are softer. Quite happy with the quality of the BB one all around.

Sandra said...

Thanks LLA! I heard the BB was soft and thick but I think my store must have had a different batch because it did not feel any different than the ras glo or black swan recently released... Maybe I'm getting too picky... I haven't had any of my heathered CRBs suede but I've only had them less than a year. I do wear them all at least once a week.

The beaming blue CRB is my favorite in years, so much so that I'm thinking of ordering a back up, for the first time ever. I was wondering, did others find this one runs slightly large? I am considering sizing down, which I have never done in a CRB before - I wont even admit in this forum how many I own, and this is the first time a 6 has seemed a bit big.

Bon bon? I just pulled out a pair of cotton leggings from, oh, maybe 2008 (2009?) & the waistband is very similar to this new pink. Though my tights might be heathered bon bon.

I am liking the beaming blue color as well. Just got the run for your life crop and I love the vibrancy of the color I was a bit concerned with the laceoflage pattern, but I actually like it. I also double checked the seams and everything looks fine. I can't wait to wear them.
The color is so happy
