Upload!

The new Heart Ease LS is intriguing. I'd want to see how thin this shirt is before I plunk down $68 for it, though.
 I like the waistband on these Grooves better than the WUs which look kind of odd with the black block centered in front. I know one of the greens must be Mint Moment but there is another in there, too.
Very cute new Speeds in Dune Gros Gingham.

Ordered the Bleached Coral CRB. Not sure if I will like it but want to give it a try on.

Did you order anything tonight?

Picked up the bleached coral CRB and frond CRB. A bit disappointed at the lack of frond groovy run shorts.

Anybody notice how the gingham crb is in inkwell?? Lululemon mistake??

And they tweaked the Practice Freely tank. It used to have a v-shaped neckline now it's gone. This new version's neckline is the same as the No Limits.

Not that I was attached to the v-neck detail. I don't mind the change but it's something to keep in mind in case you think it's exactly the same from the older versions.

Frond and bleached coral crb and coral Studio crops. Hope to see Frond groovy runs in store soon.

Where are the Stills???!!!! Argh!!!

I ordered the bleached coral CRB and the white SS swiftly.

Bleached coral CRB and the dune gros gingham speeds! :-)

Frond CRB and the practice freely in bleached coral/pop orange. Love that color combo. I sized up in the CRB based on people's reviews so i hope it's not too big!

I guess we know the color of that forme jacket- pop orange returns! I like pop orange, but I wanted that damn heathered pop orange define, not this piece of crap (my opinion)

First time I've ordered or paid full price since a pow/Paris NLT last summer.... Got a mint moment and bleached coral CRB and the bleached coral Practice Freely which I'm hoping will contain my D cups. The tweak just may work for my tatas. :)

Longing for the frond shorts, settled for the Frond crb. I ordered the white studio crops last week (waiting to arrive) and I might return them for dune. However, I can wear neither around my kids, so maybe I'll stick with the white for work.

I ordered the frond CRB, the Heart Ease LS in polar haze and a SS swiftly in Shell Pink. I am relatively new to Lulu. I love my lined studio pant (now have 3 pair). I am tempted to order the dune crop studio pant with liner but can't figure out when I would wear them.I live in Chicago and if I am wearing crops it needs to be warm enough so then why would I need the liner? Am I missing something? What kind of temperatures would I wear the lined studio crops?

Frond CRB (hope the material isnt thin!) and the inkwell daily yoga jacket. Ive been sitting onthe daily yoga jacket for some time already and decided to get it today since the today's launch of new forme colors don't speak to me.

@Anon 10:24 PM - Thanks for the heads up on the inkwell gingham CRB and the Practice Freely tank change. I tried ordering the inkwell gingham CRB but when I add it to the shopping cart, it defaults to the solid inkwell CRB. So it looks like a lulu boo boo. And grrr on the change in the PF tank neckline. I liked the v-neck as I find it more flattering That's also what made it different from the NLT (and justified a purchase!)

Anonymous said...

The liner will help with your knickers from being displayed. Normally whiter or paler Studio pants ave a liner for this reason. :)

Anonymous said...

I got the CRB in frond and inkwell gingham, the coral DSCs, and a white SS swiftly! I also ponied up the bucks for the dog runners in black as I got the blue ones in WMTM and they are kind of wonderfully comfortable and warm! Now I'm just waiting for the frond swiftly and I think I'll be set for a while. :)

Nothing for me. I'm still on the fence on whether or not to return my e&fs. Frond groovy runs would have done it for me but since they're not uploaded, pass on it all.

Nothing for me, yet again!! :( Now that Aritzia is online, have been buying from them. Just wished they updated their website with new stuff better. :)

@11:29 PM - ditto on whether or not to return my E&Fs. They aren't that sheer for me, but I'm having a hard time justifying $78.

No purchases for me tonight. Was hoping to get the new VInyasa to Vino bag. Poo.

DesertGirl said...

I like the looks of the dune speeds with the bleached coral CRB a lot, but I have a bunch of pink tanks and I'm saving my risk with gingham for the frond gingham speeds so I just got the bleached coral speeds. Hoping they are not TOO much like rose quartz.

lexa said...

Inkwell studio crops for me.

Anonymous said...

There is a new style of tank and crops on the AUS side - Pace tank and Pace crops. The Pace tank in pop orange/bleached coral looks pretty!

Anonymous said...

Nothing I can't wait another 24 hours for to get in store. I'm really liking the coral DSC, all of the gingham CRB's, the dune shorts are really cute, but I don't train in shorts (not a runner). I guess I'm going to have to try on the new jackets, although I really need a new black one, not a colored one, especially now with all the lighter colors coming out.

I'd order the LS swiftly in white, but most white tops I get from lulu get dingy looking straight away. Can I ask some of you that got the white swiftly last year how the brightness held up?

Anonymous said...

Ordered the CRB in frond and mint moment, my local store was already out of mint in my size. The bleached coral CRB is pretty, but just got the pink shell not too long ago and they are too similar for me to plop down more money. Ended up returning the light flare E&B, too sheer, but kept the deep coal ones. I'm not particularly fond of the new length in version II.

Anonymous said...

I too am debating returning my EFIIs! I have inkwell and black and when the fabric is adjusted correctly they are not sheer - just when in childs pose type bends. argh

Absolutely nothing again this week.....I used to at least purchase one new item a week!

Beth said...

I ordered the yellow gingham speed shorts. I'm heading into my local store this morning and am planning to grab a bleached coral and frond gingham CRB.

Anonymous said...

Just the bleached coral CRB. I wanted the LS and SS Swiftly in Frond or Bleached Coral, but they weren't uploaded!! Same with the indigo pacesetter... its missing from the upload.
Its frustrating being a Canadian, and seeing a Canadian company give priority to Australia. There is no way they should be getting the items first!! I know they sell for a lot there, but at the same time, I'd expect more from lululemon and treat their native country a little better!

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me. I wanted new headbands!!! :(

Susan Morgan said...

If you go to the Australia side and open up the Run: Pace Tank in Black, what color do you think those speed shorts are? They look like a light frond, but I'd love it if they were actually mellow yellow!

Anonymous said...

OT but i'd like some opinions on the burning yellow CRB. I thought of ordering it but it seems like a few ppl didn't like the color in real life. Has anyone bought this color and loved it? I bought mint moment on impulse thinking it would be too faded but i absolutely love love love the color in real life, so i know not to go based on how it looks in pictures.

Anonymous said...

Looks like the Coral CRB might be sheerish. If you look at the last photo of the back closeup, you can see the models bra and the lulu symbol on the bra:(

Anonymous said...

I pulled the trigger on the green frond CRB and WUC spring quilt. I sized up on the CRB from a 4 to 6, on the advice of another reader. Apparently the weave is tighter. Can someone else attest to this?

How are the WUC spring quilt crops running?

I also want the inkwell gingham CRB, but the website seems to be loading the inkwell solid in my shopping cart.

Kathryn said...

I ordered the front gingham CRB. I am in BIG trouble with this frond... I have been waiting forever for a good green from Lulu and feel like I have to buy every single piece.

If anyone tries the heart ease long sleeve please let me know what the difference is from my mantra long sleeve! Haha

Looks like
Nothing! Just the name!

Anonymous said...

Tempted by the bleached coral speeds and practice freely tank! I actually like that they made it less v-necked because the older version showed a bit too much boob for me. I am 34C size 6 and have to be careful in yoga to adjust it so not too much is falling out although I love the top very flattering.

Anonymous said...

I agree with you! I have a mantra and I absolutely love it. I broke down and ordered one this morning. Will let you know my thoughts.

Anonymous said...

As another user commented look at the AUS site under the pace tank in black. Those speed shorts look like a new green- not frond. It looks like the same green that's in the waistband of those new Wunder Under and Grooves that LLA thought was mint moment but mint moment is way more light IMO. Looks like we're getting another green. Or maybe it is frond "light".

aimee said...

Just last night I was thinking to myself, "I really wish Lululemon would bring back the Practice Freely Tanks," and then here they are! What a pleasant surprise. :)

Now if only we could see another return of the Flow And Go Tanks!

@ Anon 10:24 p.m.,
You're right. The Practice Freely Tank has been tweaked. Unlike most of the recent product tweaks, I think most folks will receive the change positively.
The practice freely used to be VERY revealing and a challenge for women with larger chests when the neckline followed the Arise bra underneath. I think the new neckline, which does appear to be the same as the No Limits Tank, will be flattering on everyone. I liked the old neckline, but I like this one too.

I am tempted to order the dune crop studio pant with liner but can't figure out when I would wear them.I live in Chicago and if I am wearing crops it needs to be warm enough so then why would I need the liner? Am I missing something?

I have always wondered the same thing! The lined version of the studio pants are quite warm. I wear them as a to-and-from on cold days over my crops for hot vinyasa. (I live in Baltimore. We get cold winters but not as cold as Chicago!) I have no idea why they make lined crops. If it's cold enough you'd want the liner, why would you want your ankles to be cold? The only time I can think of them being appropriate would be a cooler spring day, where you might be comfortable in a light jacket yet still wear flip-flops. (Where I live, that's about two weeks a year.) I'd stick to the unlined crops or the lined pants if I were you!

They aren't giving them priority, they are releasing season specific clothing.

And they don't sell at a higher price, the prices are in AUD $, which is somewhat close to CAN $, but not on par.

Anonymous said...

I wanted the inkwell checked crb but like others mentioned, when I added it to the shopping bag, the solid inkwell showed up. I spoke with cust. service and they said that it was actually an error and that if you choose that crb, you will get the solid inkwell. She also said that it's black/white checkered.
*sigh*

Anonymous said...

I got white swifty SS and frond CRB.

I also wish that US uploaded inkwell WUs, but only Canada got them. Question: does anyone know if those are see-through?

Kristin said...

Hi all, can someone give me an idea of the sizing for the Studio Crops? I am a size 4 in the Ebb&Flow, Gather&Crow and Run for Your Life crops. I'm tall and my thighs are muscular so I don't want these too tight.

Anonymous said...

@ Susan Morgan... Those shorts look lime-y to me, which is SUPER exciting. Green (lime, especially) is my favorite color, so I'm thrilled about the prospect of that color!!!

Anonymous said...

Anon 6:29... burning yellow CRB is not as yellow as clarity yellow and more like a faded tangerine color in my opinion. I personally went for the clarity yellow ribbed CRB instead because I wanted something in a truer yellow (the ribbed version is great BTW). When I went to the store, the burning yellow no longer piqued my interest.

On another note, you can't order the heart ease LS online... what's up with that????

Laura Strate Madsen said...

This was a tempting upload for me--it was actually enough for me to drive 20 minutes to my store to use my R&D discount. :) I ended up with the frond crb, coral crb, LS white swiftly, and older color in the All Sport bra.

Anonymous said...

I wouldn't say season specific. We tend to get items a week or so later... And our seasons aren't a week later...

Anonymous said...

Also, that makes no sense that they will get the same items but more colours.. That's just releasing there first not a seasonal difference!

Anonymous said...

Kristin, I'm a consistent 4 in all crops...wunder unders, e&f but got a size 2 in both studio crops and pants.

Dani said...

@8:30am - do you mean the gingham WUC's? (I looked on the US side and they aren't there so I think that's what you're talking about). I picked them up in store and wore them to yoga last week - I didn't find them see-through, but they do fit a bit unusually. I have probably 12 pairs of WUC's, all the same size, but these ones I kept pulling on, convinced my bum was hanging out! You can't size down because it's a tight material, but the waistband is looser or lower or SOMETHING. These will be a house-pair only for me, I think.

Anonymous said...

I went to my store today and picked up the Groovy Run Shorts in Frond and the gingham coral. The gingham coral is horribly matched, especially in the crotch area, which looks really bad. I had kids with me, so couldn't try anything on in the store and now have to haul back with returns. I also grabbed the inkwell gingham CRB in my regular 4 and got home to discover that the fabric is tighter (and a little scratchy) and I should have gotten a 6. It looks black, but the tag says INKW.

Anonymous said...

Mini-store report - tried on the gingham inkwell CRB and it is very stiff - I am always a 6 in CRB and went to an 8 and still snug. I was not a fan of the fabric so a no-go. Got the solid inkwell instead which is mostly nylon and regular fit (very cute detailing of flare on reverse side too).

re: anon asking about burning yellow - IMO it looks exactly like the color of Kraft macaroni and cheese - hope this helps!

In exciting news - got word that the energy bra is coming back!!!

Oh man I want those light green shorts shown with the AUS black pace tank photo!!

Anonymous said...

I want to get the gingham CRB, but with the reports I am confused on what size to order. 6s are generally just slightly large on me, but 4s are definitely too tight. also, is it just my eyes are are these CRBs shorter?

Anonymous said...

Dani @10:23 am, thank you for your response. Yes, I was asking about gingham WUC.

My problem is that I have large bum, but small waist. I guess I will have to drive to the store to try them on. I wanted to avoid doing that.

I wanted to order something new, but nothing from this Tuesday's additions were that appealing to me. I love the Frond, but not in the gingham. I would've bought that if it had been in the solid color since I'm colored very "Irish". I ended up buying the 105 F Singlet in Polar Cream and the Polar Cream Breathe Easy Bra. I thought those would be a great spring addition for yoga and/or running!

Yeah we really need summer running gear when it's -40 with windchill outside...

Mimi said...

Ordered the dune speed shorts. Also stopped by my local store and purchased the SL white swiftly. I have 5 others and it definitely looked shorter to me. The educators confirmed it was 1 1/2 inches shorter in this "Spring" style swiftly. I'm 5'7" so not sure if it's a keeper but wanted to bring it home to decide. Just wanted to let everyone know.

Jennifer K. said...

I tried on the frond gingham CRB and it was super tight. I can't really size up in CRBs because then the front dips too low, so I had to pass.

Anonymous said...

An ed told me that the gingham CRB's are shorter - which is weird because the solid inkwell almost seemed longer?

Anonymous said...

Looks like the gingham CRB I ordered online last evening will be going back. Went to the store and tried on today. I am normally a size 8 in most lulu tops and CRB (due to 36DD). The 8 was way to tight in the bust. The 10 fit fine in the bust but was way to baggy everywhere else. I just bought the Matt last week in surge but haven't unwrapped yet. Any reviews on the New Matt would be much appreciated!

Anonymous said...

I absolutely love my frond gingham CRB. They are a little shorter, and a little tighter, but my regular size 4 was still the right size. I don't think the material is scratchy at all! I'm 5'10 And the length is still fine. I also tried the Swiftly Racerback on and the length is fine.

I tried on the Still Pants in Dune and in Inkwell. They are a size down, and fit exactly like my old ones. The material is super soft and comfy. You can wear the drawstring on the inside or the outside.

Anonymous said...

I saw the Frond CRB at my local store today. The material is rough. It's very cute, though. I'm not sure if I'll keep the one I ordered online. Also saw the Frond Groovy Run Shorts, but there was something cheap and flimsy looking about them. The material just didn't look like good quality. My store just put out the new Still pants. They look more fitted in the waist and hip area than the last version, but with super wide legs. The pants hugged me too close at my butt and hips, but was super billowy in the legs. I couldn't size up. They were an easy pass for me.

if you have light tan skin (asian/hispanic/etc.) burning yellow can look BAD. i'm Mexican with very yellow undertones and this color looks SUPER AWFUL on me. it almost matches my skin color, if my skin was incandescent. i say if you don't have golden/yellowish skin you may love it! fair or bronzer ladies could pull this off. anyway, i ordered the SHS no limit tank from last week and the pop orange practice freely. i need the extra tummy coverage after eating/drinking my way through the caribbean for two weeks this winter:)

Anonymous said...

@Jennifer K. That is a bummer on it being too tight! I have the same problem with it dipping too low when I size up. I will have to return it when it arrives.

I've only had to return things ordered online before during the holiday return season in the past. I do most of my buying in store. What is the rule on returns.. is it two weeks from when you bought it or two weeks from when you receive it. I live in Georgia so one of the farthest points away from the their distribution center in Seattle so it usually takes 8-10 days for my items to arrive anyways.

Anonymous said...

What does Australia getting items like the new vinyasa bag or different coloured CRBs first have to do with us needing summer running gear? They always seem to get the gear first lately regardless of item type. Even different colours which doesn't not relate to seasonal gear.

And on another note, a lot of runners are running inside this time of year and wouldn't mind some summer running gear for the gym :)

Thanks so much! Haha might break down too!

Still would like to hear your thoughts!

I wrote another letter to lulu: basically why why why make another item shorter? I'm resigned to the simple fact that lulu doesn't care! They do what they do to the clothes guests be damned!!! I've been feaverishly scouting items on ebay that i love- circuit tanks, run dash tanks (nice and long and fabrics are very nice)- just in case lulu continues on this super short basebal curved hemline kick for years? with low rise pants, shorts, jeans etc. too short just doesn't work- and i'm 5'4" can't emagine how angry i'd be if i were taller Grrrr!!! ;)

OMG I want those Bleached Coral Studio Crops!!!! They're perfect for summer!!! Hard to believe that the summer gear is starting and they were so behind on their winter gear...

I ordered the Frond CRB in my usual 8 and am now nervous after reading everyone's fit reviews! I hope it's not too tight, as I love the color...It's sold out online in all size except 2, so hopefully my local store will have the right size!

Hi all!

I am tempted to get the studio crops (in both bleached coral and inkwell) but I haven't had any luck with the last 3 that I bought (indigo, currant & white w/liner). There were the plasticky bits poking out of the waistband and apart from the white, the other 2 had a somewhat rough and scratchy waistband too. Had to have them returned.

Can anyone who bought the studio crops DSC review about the fit (and comfort) for bleached coral and inkwell? I heard it changed somewhat in the past months.

Btw, aside from the gingham CRBs, would I need to size up for the solid colors (bleached coral and inkwell) CRB?

Thanks so much!! C

Anonymous said...

Two weeks from when you receive it (that's been my experience). Sometimes they even let it sled when it's a couple days later, but I wouldn't push it. That's in store. I thin on line they'll let you return it as long as you initiate the return within 2 weeks of receipt, but again, I wouldn't push it! It will say under the order details whether it's sill eligible for return. ( that should say slide, not sled!)

Agree!! Puerto Rican here and it just looks bad!!

I thought the Bleached Coral and solid Inkwell CRBs were a tad on the looser side.

Anonymous said...

Agree that some runners are running inside and would love cute stuff ... I run inside and out and really think Lulu missed the winter run stuff. They did not have that many items and they have hardcore customers in Canada and other northern areas that could have used some great run gear. Really think they missed the boat this season. I've been straying to other brands that have great winter run stuff (ex Under Armour for their technical Cold Gear). Still love Lulu for yoga though!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:07 am - Totally agree about them falling down on the winter run stuff. They basically had one pullover - the U-turn - that was flawed - too short, curved hem, no zip pocket - and just churned out 20 different versions of it. Did they only have one tech fleece - the Toasty Tech, too? I was kind of in the market for a new tech fleece top but did not like the Toasty Tech. Adding curved hems to all the winter run stuff tanked the line, IMO. I liked the softshell pant a lot but that was it.

Anonymous said...

I really like the toasty tech top. it's a great running top for winter I have all three of them and I really like the curved hem, keeps the top from riding up. I also sail competitively and the curved feature is awesome for when hiking on the rail. I have been living in the polar cream on. Maybe am the only one who likes the curved hem.
