Color Comparison: Bleached Coarl, Pink Shell, Pop Orange, Creamsicle Pop, and Light Flare

My Bleached Coral Cool Racerback came early today. I thought I wasn't going to like it enough to keep it but I really love it. Here it is compared to my other CRBs and a Swiftly. From left to right: Pink Shell, Bleached Coral, Pop Orange Swiftly, Creamsicle Pop, and Light Flare. The two headbands are a Bubbilicious Mesh Headwrap on top and a Pig Pink Bangbuster on the bottom. The Pop Orange Swiftly and Bleached Coral CRB are probably the closest in color. I remember I liked the Swiftly best in that color since it was a little muted. I didn't buy a Pop Orange CRB.

Very similar comparison, going clockwise - Blush Quart high Noon Dot CRB, Bleached Coral, Pop Orange Swiftly Tank, Creamsicle Pop CRB, and Pink Shell CRB on the bottom.

That's a really pretty display of CRB & swiftly colors! I wish I'd kept my pop orange CRB! I do have the creamsicle pop spin tank in luxtreme, though (unless I have my oranges mixed up). Anyway, very pretty!!!

Just bought a bleached coral CRB in store today. I'm thrilled to finally have a bright color that isn't too neon. I love it with my inkwell and black swan bottoms.

Bought my first swiftly tank today too. I had never tried a Swiftly top on, they always seemed like they would sow every lump and bump...I LOVE THEM! Now I'm kicking myself that I didn't do it sooner, I would have loved the Love Red tneck...

I missed the Pop Orange CRB and would love it if it came back.

I bought Bleached Coral and really love it. It is not Flash Light.

Bleached coral is pretty. I ordered it online during upload but saw it at the store. I really like it a lot. I also like the fabric of the new Free to be Bras. They are easier to put on since they are stretchier than my older ones. I don't know what changed but liking it. I wore my Frond free to be bra with my white swiftly CRB today. Pretty. I might buy a pacesetter skirt in Frond if it comes out. Emerald green is apparently the 2013 Pantone color of the year. I wish Lulu would come out with real emerald green. That would be lovely.

Can anyone help me? I have the blush quartz sparkle pace setter from last year, but I don't know what colours to wear with it. Would coral be a good match?

Thanks for this comparison!! I too got my Coral CRB in the mail today - Such a beautiful color, can't wait to wear it. The frond color is really growing on me...Haven't seen it in the CRB other than the Gingham and can't say I love that design. I'm kicking myself for missing out on the Pink Shell CRB, it looks sooo pretty in your photo

The RC showroom PN said they got pop orange groovy run shorts. But no photo. Hmm.

I got my bleached coral and frond CRBs today. LOVE the bleached coral! Such a great bright, but non-neon orangey-pink. On the other hand, I was super excited for the frond CRB, but I just am not in love with the gingham. And it IS super tight in my normal CRB size. It's going back. And the bleached coral is staying.

There's another new pink out too, I think -- I saw a crb at my local store (canada) with colour code "ELEC". I thought it was bleached coral but apparently not!

You know, a lot of the stores were calling the Pop Orange Forme Jacet "election" so I wonder if that is the color or close to the color. I have an old database and there was a color called Election. Now I wonder what it looks like. Can you describe the color. I'm going to google and see if I can come up with it.

I thought bleached coral looked a lot like pop orange... I have a pop orange, I don't love it but its pretty with a tan and reminds me of a light mango color.

flash light and bleached coral a way different on the brightness scale.
But I think my flash light free to be bra will look awesome under my bleached coral crb!
Thanks for the inspiration:-)

9:04, I think it is Bleached Coral. It's just the ink on the hangtag sort of cutting off or fading out on the curves of the "B". I looked at my Bleached Coral hangtag and it could look like ELEC but it's BLEC.

I had Pink Shell but actually returned it (within the window) once Bleached Coral came out. It was just too bubble gum for me.

I am liking the bleached coral. there is a swiftly tank and my local store and I am thinking of getting that one and also a white one. will be nice for those hot summer days on the sailboat. Can't wait.

9:04 anon here -- the colour was definitely in the pop orange/bleached coral family. I kind of scrutinized the hangtag thinking it said "BLEC" but it definitely didn't. Is BLEC really the code for bleached coral anyways? I thought for two word colour names they usually used the first two letters of the first word, followed by the first two letters of the next word, so using that rule bleached coral would be BLCO, not BLEC.

If I am in the store again soon I will take a photo!

@ anon 9:56 pm - the color code for Bleached Coral is BLEC. I just checked the tag on my new CRB.

LuluAddict said...

@ Kelley - Thanks for the suggestion of wearing Bleached Coral with Black Swan. I wore it with my BS Gather and Crows yesterday and a Potion Define and it all looked so nice together. I don't think I would have paired it with those pants until you mentioned it.

I just returned from my store in northern CA and the hang tag for bleached coral crb definitely said ELEC. I double checked 3 different tags. Maybe there is a batch with a typo.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:31 -pm- thanks for clearing that up. Interesting there are two tags. I was wondering where the "election" color name came from.

I would also love a comparison between light flare, flash light and pop orange. I have the two latter, but not sure if I 'need' the new color.
