Pace Tank and Crop Photos


From Australia, Pace Tank and Crops. The Pace tank doesn't look nearly as short here as it does on the web models. I do wish it was an inch or so longer, though. I still want to try it on.

Practice Freely Tank in Bleached Coral/Pop Orange and Inkwell Gingham Wunder Unders. If the 105F Singlet comes in the same Bleached Coal Sheer luon jersy, count me in. It's very pretty.

Both outfits look nice on her.

I dunno about the trim on the Pace Crops. I know it's not, but makes me think of a Jesus fish (no judgement).

The inkwell gingham WUCs (which I'm excited to get!) and the plain black Practice Freely tank are on the HK site now... but they're about USD25-29 more expensive. Not exactly "free" shipping there.

I think I'll wait for the US/Intl site to get it and use one of those mail forwarders. It'll still be cheaper.

Whennnnn will the Australian site put something, anything, in their We Made Too Much section?! I'm happy I bought something in the boxing day sale because there hasn't been a thing since. So depressing.

The picture of the practice freely tank make it look so much brighter than previous pictures. I really want it, but I'm a pale red head and I'm afraid it will just make me look even more pale!

I'm looking forward to trying on the Pace tank but not those crops... YIKES. That detailing at the hips/booty will make anybody's butt look wide!

OT-I just got my ebb and flows in the mail. The deep coal and black look the same to me. However, the fabric feels different. The deep coal feels a bit more silkier so i am keeping that one instead of the black. I like the inkwell color as it is more of a blue tone vs ebb and flow I (indigo) which is more of a purple undertone.

I got both black and deep coal ebb and flows as well and black was so sheer! Deep coal was far better. I don't love the new length so both may still go back.

Other than maybe the still pants, I don't see anything else that's all that interesting. (And the sill pants aren't even really coming in interesting colours) Who brings out the colour dune in the middle of cold Canadian winters??? lulu is all backwards with what they release! :(

@Anonymous 7:04am- Are they the ebb and flow II? Are they see through to you? Just curious, I only have a pair of wonder unders (early 2012) and a define jacket, but I like the look of the waistband on the ebb and flow II.

Thanks!

I don't necessarily think the pace crops will make everyone's butt look big, but they will draw attention there. They look kind of cute, IMO.

This is Anon @7:04AM. I usually wear size 2 in wunder under and sized up to a 4 for the ebb and flow because of the sheerness issues. I find that the ebb and flow II are slightly sheerer than the I but not by much. If I bend upside down and look at the mirror, it is not see through. It is only sheer if I do a deep squat. This is from wearing a black th@ng. If you wear full undergarments, it would not be sheer. I prefer black vs skin colored undergarments cause it hides more somehow. Skin-colored tends to force you to look even harder- like is she n@ked or what? to me. I hate VPL, so I cant wear the full undergarments. I prefer the length of the ebb and flow II because the I always rides up during class to right under my knee and it drives me crazy, not only because there is extra material there but I think its unflattering cause it makes my legs look shorter. I am going to wear the Ebb and Flow II to class on Monday and will give a report back how it performs. The only issue I have with the II is that they are a teensy bit too long so its not fitted on the calf area. To fix that, I pull the fabric up a little more and it fixes it but i have slight wrinkles in the back as there is extra fabric. I love the way it performs in class and it does not get in the way ever as they are like second skin! They are still my favorite crops ever as even on fat days, i still look good! I do feel self-conscious that i might be showing my rear so i tend to wear xl crb or the no limit tank on top with it. I hope this helps!

So I was at Disney today wearing my laceoflauge scuba...mainly because it was unexpectedly cold and I didn't have much else packed. I was getting food and a little 10-12 yr old girl went out of her way to run up to me to say she liked my sweatshirt (who was wearing the same print).

The girl was adorable and polite, but I was very surprised to see such a young girl in a $100 hoodie. I have heard hs girls are getting into the the brand, but really young girls? Ones who aren't necessarily at the age of working out? I'm 28 years old, finally with a salary considerable enough to splurge from time to time, but even I grit my teeth dropping over $100 on a hoodie ( although I caved for the b&w print)....

My black ebb and flows II were really sheer, no matter the size. They were also a really weird length for a short girl. They went back.

Thanks so much for your response! :)

@ anon 3:07 pm - My sister buys her 14 year old daughter lululemon because they are the same size so it's more "economical" and they can share but it kills me that a 14 year is running around in a 100+ pullover. I mean she does half marathons and 5Ks with her mom so she wear them for sporting activities but still. I kind of worked my way up to pricey workout wear.

Would never wear a thong with the Ebb & Flow ii's!

There are underwear that don't produce vpl, if anyone's interested.

I teach high school and see my students wearing lulu. It bothers me so much!! Teenagers are not their target market and I just don't understand why they or their parents feel like the kids need to wear expensive workout gear. Especially when it is NOT to workout in. When I was in high school I was not interested in dressing like my teachers. Girls constantly ask me if I'm wearing lulu (I can get away w a define or stride on casual days) and I just want to tell them to start shopping at their own stores!

You really can't just say "thong" and "naked"?

I'm only 20, but I understand how older women must be irked by anyone younger wearing the same clothing.
I think lululemon needs to drop their "trendy" styles and stick with classic looks.

My 15 year old daughter borrows my LuLu jackets all the time...I would rather her borrow mine and be a little oversized than ask for them as a gift for herself...I don't mind sharing...that said, Lulu is VERY popular with junior tennis players...the girls wear the shorts (with spandex underneath), the skirts and tanks all the time at tournaments.

Teens and pre-teens have Iphones and Ugg boots. Of course they are going to wear LLL $100 Scuba jackets.
Why be mad? Look at the prints and colors nothing about those scubas yells Adult women Only.
They are spending their money or their parents to buy $100 hoodie, boots and cellphones
I don't buy my 11 year old son $200 tennis shoes just because of a designer. Although I have to spend about $100 on shoes because he wears a men's size 11. LLL has found a niche in the teen/young women market--especially with the B & W lace print and those bright colors. At 40 I like bright colors but doubt very much if I would choose a staple like a hoodie in a bright color -I lean towards classic-wear forever whenever colors if I'm buying a staple. If something is "too cute" I start to think of it as too young and chances are some teen will have on the same jacket.

My new black Ebb and Flows are perfect and not sheer at all. They feel amazing.
Probably different "batches".

I agree that I don't like seeing kids wearing LLL. I'm 23 and have only just been able to afford Lulu, after paying off student loans from university and having found a full time job in my field. I feel like in this day and age, parents buy their kids so many unnecessary things like iphones, expensive clothing like Abercrombie or LLL or Aritzia. It's just unnecessary.

I don't see anything wrong with young girls or teenagers wearing LL my 16 yr old niece likes borrowing my pace setter skirts she looks awesome in them.
I encourage her to workout.

I wear "hanky panky" under wear with all my wunder unders, ebb and flows, and running tights. They are SOOO comfortable and do not show panty lines. If you are smaller they also have petite size.

Young or young at heart, everyone should wear what makes them happy. I would have been ecstatic if I could have gotten my parents to buy LLL for me when I was a teenager. But alas, LLL wasn't even a glimmer in anyone's eye way back then! But gee, if i could have had a pair of Jordache jeans back in the day... LOL!!!

There is an 8 year old at our school who has a define jacket....she is very tiny so it is down to her knees and the sleeves are rolled up....ridiculous!!

I wasn't even upset about the girl at Disney...just suprised. I expect high school girls to like the brand, especially with the bright colors, trendy designs, and status pricetag. Even with high school girls, I expect only a few things like hoodies, tights, and jackets to be popular since most are not active.

I am suprised over young girls...this girl was not large, but she definately could not be mistaken for "active" either.

I don't hate or dislike it. I was a little shocked. Wasn't expecting 10-12 year olds...but who knows...maybe she wanted one because a big sis or relative had one.

I guess its none of my business either way. I just hope that parents buying these pricey gifts (including ipads, macbooks, designer purses) are teaching their children to value the cost of the item.

I would (more than likely) be offended if a 17 yr old treated something like garbage, than a 10 year old treasuring it like it was priceless.

I buy my kids Lulu all the time. Mostly jackets, shorts and tanks. Of course now they are in their late teens and in college but they never knew what LLL was before. They treated it like their other clothes since they are not really into brand names. I buy it for them for the fit, need and the uniqueness of the design (sometimes). Also in the hopes that they will be using it to workout in. I saved a porcelain dance studio jacket for one of my daughters for xmas and I told her if she ever needs money she can sell it on ebay for a lot. She was confused. Oh well, I guess they don't know and don't care but life keeps going. I do tell them how to care for them and not to give it to goodwill before asking me. Yes, one of them donated a swiftly SS. Lol.
