Heads Up From Austrlia - Run: Pace Line and More

I am digging this outfit - Dune/White Gingham Forme Jacket, Dune Still Pant, and Bleached Coral Cool Racerback.



Still pant details.

From Australia - new Run: Pace Tank, bra, and crops. Ugh, lulu is so schizo about lengths in run tops. This one look to be on the too short side. The tank is made of luxtreme and has a built in shelf bra. This color is Bleached Coral and Pop Orange. I do like the touch of Ocean Stripe on the straps in the back. I'd be interested in a CRB in the pattern.


New luxtreme Pace Bra.

New Run: Pace crops. These look interesting. They also come in solid black.

It looks like the armpits come up higher on that bra- that's a good thing!

Why do they put the drawstring on the outside of the waistband??? Why not put it on the INSIDE??? I always have this unsightly bump right there from the bow. Is anyone else annoyed by this or is it just me?

I'm not digging the color placement on those crops, but I am interested in snagging some more low rise crops before running season is here!

@ Marlies - I'm pretty sure there are holes on the inside so you can knot the drawstring there. That is how the old ones are made and in photos where the waistband is flipped over they show the drawstring on the outside again so you can move it in or out, depending on your preferences.

The new Pace bra looks interesting - I wonder if it will be supportive for chestier women.

I really like the run:Pace crops from those two pictures, will have to try in store. I have too many solid black crops/pants, so I like the color detailing.

i actaully like the color blocking on the pace tank! i don't like the tank itself...i think the straps on the tank and bra are weird looking (not the stripes, but the shape), but i think that's a good way to do clocking blocking...monochromatic tonal and slimming (rather than the huge contrasting colors we've been seeing). i like the looks of the crops, too, but it looks like muffin top might be an issue, based on how they're fitting the model. i'd love a paif of crops that look just like those but without the zippered pocket that i can wear to crossfit

On the Australia site, there is also the new Frond Wunder Under crops in view with the new bag.

I don't get annoyed over a drawstring. LOL... Now my husband leaving clothes on the floor or flooding the bathroom while he gives our 2 yr. old a bath, that's something to get annoyed over. A drawstring....not so much! ;) LOL

@Luluaddict -- there is a banner picture of a CRB in yellow ocean stripe on the Aussie side -- Pretty!

That bra just looks like it would drive me cray-cray with that high neck on the back. And that tank? Fugly town. Along with that whole duen outfit. Looks like an in-patient at a mental rehab place.

How much are the stills going for and will they be uploaded?

I wish they would have made the forme jacket in just plain dune, I totally would have bought it. Not a big fan of so much gingham.

@ Marlies: I think Lululemon doesn't have a way to smoothen out the holes for the drawstrings so they either place it outside or make the waistband foldable

On Australia side, the girl wearing Vino to Vinyasa bag is having Frond WU Crop on. It's so pretty. I can't wait until it comes to America.

the tank looks interesting, the colors I like for spring and summer.
can't wait to see the frond in person.

On the AUS side there are frond WU crops shown in the picture with the vinyasa to vino bag...they appear to have a texture if you look at some of the detailed bag photos...a little background print. Interesting...these are not the same as the banner photo of crops on the AUS site.

on the AUS side, there are fron WU crops in the photo with the vinyasa bag...they have an interesting pattern...and they are different than the green crops in the banner photo.

Looking forward to the review on these Pace crops. pleeease review, someone! I need a new pair of crops!!

And I, too, love the first outfit. I'm digging the still pant, although I can't really justify buying it.. But I do love that Dune Forme Jacket.

OT...did anyone notice the In Stride jacket on eBay that says "Brand New in stores Spring 2013" in the listing? Is that just a bunch of bunk, or do you think they are really coming back for Spring?

I liked the bra until I noticed that weird seam under the boobs. It's all bunchy down there. When they put strange seaming under the boobs in tanks and bras it makes it so that only certain bust sizes can wear it and have it look good. Too small and it bunches, too big and you have a seam across the bottom of your breasts.

Talking about Australia, on the home page there is a picture of a woman doing crossfit, pulling a tire attached to a thick, very big rope and she has it across her chest (messenger bag style), while she wears a short sleeve V-neck black Swiftly! If in "real life" you do that exercise, you can kiss any swiftly goodbye!!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 1:02 pm - I agree. Front seems show through on CRBs on me. That is why I like the Energy and All Sport when it comes to lulu shelf bras.

Anonymous said...

Someone in here asked a couple of days ago about the chances of a LS Swiftly in Frond. Well, whoever is interested, you can see in the Australia site featured together with the new Vinyasa to Vino tote in pink/white/black.

im really liking the look of the run pace crops, unfortunately, the rise looks way low for me. i just prefer a higher rise. darn, pass for me although the style looks very cute. i also love the shorter crops.

I second anon@12:50 PM...there aren't any in strides on the Aus site, so how is it possible someone has one before they're released?

What do we know about The (Pure) Mat 3mm vs all other mats?!

Anonymous said...

I wish that the logo wasn't so front and center on the still pants. These are casual wear and it's hard to pass these off when the logo is right there.

Beth said...

I'm wondering how supportive that new run bra is going to be. I'm totally trying on the new run crops when they come to the US, though; those look awesome.

Anonymous said...

The pattern on the Frond WUs appears to be an embossed gingham. This reminds me of what they did last summer with the pow purple and caspian blue embossed chevron.

Also is is just because its next to those beautiful frond WUs or is that Vinyasa to Vino bag actually pretty cute? I haven't like any of the bags they have had in a while.

I tried on the still pants today and I'm typically a 4 in all LLL but I had to size down to a 2 on this one. I am a 4 in the relaxed fir pant just for comparison. It is really loose and comfy but I did not want to spend anymore money on another pair since I have quite a bit. I really liked the dune but my butt and thigh ripples showed. I also tried on the Frond groovy run shorts, FTB bra and tank. It's very Kermit the frog green to me. I can only handle a small item in this brightness so I bought a FTB bra. The tank is pretty. I also noticed it seems easier to pull it over my head unlike my other FTB tanks and bras in the same size 4. It seems softer. I might get a bangbuster if it comes out. I returned my flare and inkwell E&F crops. I wasn't crazy over them so I replaced with nothing. I am strongly thinking of returning my reflective pullover in mint moment since today they had a couple on MD at the store. I realized they were $128.00! I might just grab one of the two they had on MD. The new gingham CRBs are tragic. They are really rough and tight. I cannot handle the texture against my skin. I did not like the groovy run shorts in Frond. It seems tight across my lower hips. It's 4 way. The gingham speeds are 2 way, the bleached coral is 4 way. The new Forme jacket in bleached coral is close to define since it is not color blocked. I have flash and paris pink so no need for yet another define ish jacket. I think this is all I tried today. Hope it helps.

Still on the Oz site, I'm interested in the bra on the "bra banner". Material looks like the E&F. And speaking of E&F, I am loving the Frond "E&F like" crop on the "crop banner". The reason that to me it looks like an E&F but "tweaked" a little, is because the ruching on the side bottom of leg is a bit different. Fabric looks the same and length is closer to the E&F I. Whatever it is, I'm liking it, as the Ebb and Flow is one of my all time fave lulu crop. :)

@ pink peony: thanks for the report. I ordered the frond CRB last night with much hesitation, so I will be able to save money by returning it! I was wondering about the frond grooves, but with my pale legs, I think the frond would look too bright, and eve more kermit-like.

Jennifer said...

Today I saw the new pure mats. They feel very squishy compared to the mat and have a waffle-like texture. Waiting for plenty of reviews before I decide to buy.

I have a problem with the Still Pants. I love the fit and the comfort. It's actually an amazing pair of pants. But the holes where the drawstrings come through is bonded. And there are holes in the front AND in the back of the waist band (touching your skin). After a few washes (cold water and hang dry), the bonded part becomes scratchy and hard and irritates the skin on my abdomen. The only way to wear it without rubbing is to fold it over. I have 2 pairs of Still Pants and both do the exact same thing. I wonder if the drawstring holes are sewn open or bonded in this release. For those who have the Still Pants in previous releases, please comment on whether yours do the same.

I own a bunch of stills and be still pants and nothing rubs me the wrong way. Sorry! LOOVE....

Still Pant, for those wondering on fit. I haven't tried the new ones yet. Sounds like they remain a size down item. I normally wear a 4 in all LL bottoms, am a 2 in Still Pant.

Drawcord holes and discomfort: I do not have this problem with my Still pants. I often wear them with the waistband up, drawcord on the outside. I do however, have the scratchy problem with the holes on a pair of my Relaxed Fit pants. Go figure. It is bothersome.

Both worn a lot, wash cold and hang to dry.

I just bought a pair of cropped Stills at an outlet store and noticed the scratchy bit. My old Stills from 5ya were fine. I had to cut the melted or bonded part out of the pants to make them wearable. :(

Yogibabe, I'm with you... just what are those frond colored crops that look like E&F, but shorter like the previous version with tweaked ruching? I want them!!! E&Fs are my faves as well, but not too fond of the newer version because of the length.
