More of What Is in the Stores

The Black/Spring Has Sprung No Limits Tank is really calling my name. I like the print in small doses and especially against black. I love my bangbuster headband in the print. The bottom photo is shown with Flare Ebb and Flow crops.

Inkwell No Limit Tank with Flare Wunder Under pants.


Power Up Crops in the Spring Has Sprung print. The top photo shows it with a 105F Singlet.


Inkwell/Burning Yellow Inspire Crops, Flare 105F Singlet, and Top Speed Bra.

 Flare Swiftly SS and Get Up and Glow Tights.


Flare Swiftly LS and Inkwell Studio Pants.

Burning Yellow Work It Out Tank and Inspire crops.

 Inkwell Cool Racerback and color blocked Wunder Under pants.

I really hate these pictures, very misleading. E&F crops are sheer!!! I tried them on in inkwell in a size 6 ( I am a 4 in WU) and there is no way I would bend over or squat in the gym in these. Ended up with the inkwell crb and love it. I usually buy a size 2 in crb tanks but for some reason they are running smaller these days IMO so I ended up with a size 4. I did not care for the burning yellow color, too gold or something. I just want a nice yellow like chirp from the good old Lulu days. The new power y's suck, odd fit and too thin. Everytime I go into the store I get so frustrated with the "new" Lululemon. I miss going in and being overwhelmed with so many fabulous options. Now I am lucky to walk out with anything:( I buy more Lulu on Ebay these days.... Heartbreak

I love the new length of the Ebb & Flows! I am only 5'3" and the old pair used to want to ride up over my knee all the time. Has anyone tried on the flare color? Wondering if they're sheer?

I actually went in my local store yesterday, and really fell in love with the inkwell color as well as the 105F singlet. They had a stripey tata tamer on sale for $44 and I got that plus the booty shorts in the inkwell and burning yellow. they are super small size up 1 size. If you have a big bootie this are not going to work, they are not for those who are modest.

You have GOT to be kidding me. I'm awaiting my pair of Ebb & Flow crops in the mail, but it looks like they'll most likely be returned. This is now on the product info online:
"*You may experience sheerness with some of our bottoms because of the lightweight nature of the fabric. We recommend you do a couple of Down Dogs to ensure you’re happy with the fit and coverage."

It's really inexcusable to put activewear--or, heck, ANY clothing--that's sheer when that's not an intended aspect of the garment. This was my first LLL purchase in 1 year (no joke)...and now it's most likely going back. Fingers crossed that Zella will make a version.

Those new Hot Move Shorts being baggy, bad idea in hot yoga (even with a liner). Not fitted so they're going to be droopy all over with sweat. Yuck.

Ah, the Ebb & Flow "debate". Have the originals (love them) bought a new pair of the ii's in black...well, they're really not black as they're more heathery or peppery. In my tts 4 (includes WU) and they are fine. Wear neutral seamless bikini with no vpl and they are slightly sheer when I do a bend, but in no way are they obscene or not classy. Really, would you care if you saw me in a bathing suit bikini bottom on the beach? Ohh it's leg! And hey, if you have time to stare at the bottom of my a** in hot yoga, and are offended by the slight sheerness of my E&F, you're not truly present in the class and
that's the real problem!

other than CRBs I haven't been buying anything new from LLL these days. I would have bought a pump it up jacket but those didn't make it online, so i bought a few old style in strides on ebay instead! No good bras have been released lately so i've bought a few off ebay too. I'd rather pay money for well care-for lulu of good quality than pay the same price for a new garment that is not up to snuff!

OT - What do you all think are the chances of the black dog runner pants going to WMTM?

I really can't afford $118 for them, but do love them and don't want to miss out. Every week I'm hoping they'll get marked down but still have my size...

Thanks!

I think they only shipped these skirts to warmer locales. I had someone angel me one from Georgia, and her store only had 2 left. None of the stores within 3 hours of me got them. I HAD to have one!

I agree with the first poster who said the Burning Yellow CRBs are not a true yellow. They are organgey gold, a very pale yellowy orange. The yellow is more pure in other items, though. I was really shocked how orangey it looked in person.
The flare/inkwell striped CRB almost comes off as an orangey/pink. Reminds me a little of Tigger, but the color is not as Halloweeny as I thought because the orange has such a strong red undertone. Still, not sure if I have much to wear with it other than navy.

Agree on Burning Yellow being way to orangey and such a disappointment. Totally thought I would buy it but was a definite "No" when I saw it in person. Not a yellow at all. On line pictures really misrepresent it, looks toned down in photos.

Ebb & Flows. You may think this is silly advice and please don't take offense that I'm saying how to put on your clothes :) (I know you know!) but the material is fully elastic. When you have them on, take time to smooth the material UP, over your butt etc., to ensure that they are not stretched out to cause excess sheerness. Makes a difference. Just trying to be helpful.

The SHS NLT in store had bad pattern distributions. One boob had flowers, and the other boob was just black, on all the size 6's I saw. Boooo

Just got a SHS no limits. wear a 8 in everything lulu but this was the first time I sized up to a 10. The bra coverage is not great if you're a D and I feared hanging out. A part of me got the 10 because the print was much better than the 8 to be honest. So weird that it changes. Also scored a Bangbuster in SHS in stores. I can't believe online there is only white left, lulu needs to restock. I shouldn't have to go to 2 different shops to get my outfit to match!

burning yellow is supposed to be a faded version of burnt umber, which has gold and and orange tones, it is creamy. Only way I can describe it, and it goes well with the inkwell shade, I like it in small doses like the bootie shorts, which I just got. I am just not sure what color top to wear with those, I think my burning yellow swiftly will be over kill and black doesn't work.
