Faded Zap Returning?

The mysterty color in the band of the new Wunder Unders looks like it could be Faded Zap. On the left is a Scoop Neck tank in Faded Zap and the colors look very close. (Thanks to Ms. H. for the comparison.)

Update - I just read that it is coming back.

I wonder WHEN the Lux hoodies, old scubas without the thumb holes and GW will also make a "come back?" LOL Wishful thinking... They are too busy recycling and recycling their colours and calling them something different! LMAO

Is faded zap more of a yellow or a green color?

Can anyone do a color comparison of faded zap to ray? Thank you!

Thanks for the info. I will have to take a look at a Faded Zap CRB!

Wishlist: solid Alberta Lake and solid Polar Haze CRB's.

I figured it was mellow lemon. It's not?

DesertGirl said...

So do we think faded zap is the color of the mystery light green speed shorts shown with the black tank on the Australia site?

click on the hyperlink in the text that says Faded Zap. It links to pictures from 2010 that shows better what FZ is like.

@ anon 6:48: I am SO with you. I really wanted a solid CRB in both of those colors, along with solid frond :(

Wondering if anyone has tried the new pink studio crops- read one review saying they were see through. I wear 4 in the studio pants and thinking about getting a 4 in the crops (6 probably fits better but a lot of material). Any feedback would be great!

Is it bad that I find it disappointing when old colours come back lately? Back a few years ago when lots of these older colours were out, they weren't mass producing a zillion items in each style and colour and I could actually go to the gym and NOT be wearing the same outfit as 10 other people, or go to the mall without matching a dozen high school kids.

I agree, RunItMyWay! My gym has tons of lulu wearers and there are just not enough different styles of tanks out there, so we all kind of match. It's not a horrible thing, but it does make me want to buy less lulu these days. It is a big trend now with the middle school crowd here, too. They wear NLT's, speed shorts and scubas. I'm starting to minimize the amount of lulu I wear outside of the gym because of this.

@ anon 4:50 am - Middle Schoolers? Ugh!!

Is the faded zap a yellow or greenish? I am in love with the green colored speed shorts (model wearing black tank). Is that the faded zap? Im hoping so because that pale green color matches my new nikes perfectly! Yay new workout outfit!!

You guys are right. In the last few months I have been noticing more and more lulu gear in the yoga studio. Mostly the boogie shorts and grooves.
The equinox by my office has a front window full of the flare and inkwell strippie stuff. I thought it was a new lulu store. Yikes!

I really don't care what other people are wearing, especially the really young ones. It is definitely true that they tend towards the more trendy. I keep my LLL classic, pretty much a CRB and crop or speed short wearer. Nothing that dates itself too much. I used to go to the gym years ago. Today you would have to drag me to a gym. I'm a hardcore runner outside (incl. real winter with snow and cold temps), do a variety of yoga (at home and 2 studios), free weights, plyometrics. Running outside, there's little time for my clothes to be compared to anyone else and I usually don't see runners wearing the same stuff. In races, for sure I see a lot of LLL represented. At yoga studios, CRB's are popular but I wouldn't say there are too many. People definitely love the No Limits Tanks, that's a very popular one, as are WU's. LLL headbands are of course very popular. Yet I see a lot of Gap, Nike, Adidas and "any old thing" (cool) worn.

Speaking of CRB's I saw someone wearing a pretty cranberry red one, which of course if from the past. Does anyone know how long ago was that? That's a red I would love to have.

I have a ray crb and a faded zap inner awareness tank. The faded zap is more a greenish yellow And ray a neon yellow. I can do a comparison shot just not sure how to post.

Anon 8:31 - I tried on the pink studio crops. I have them in way too many colours already, all in a size 6. I tried on my usual size 6 and they were completely transparent. I could read the tag through them, and they weren't even tight. I was wearing nude coloured underwear, and you could still see it right through the pants. Unfortunately, they should have made them lined like the white ones. An easy pass.

I've read comments the Bleached Coral studio crops are see through from numerous people.

I saw the coral studio crops in store and yes... I think they would be see thru. Didn't even try them on. They should have lined them.

Way see through! I have a chocolate chip (birthmark) left cheek and you can totally see it. They are going back:(
