Upload!

Tonight's upload had some goodies. I ordered the Frond Energy bra and the new Reversible Bangbuster. That is the only way I justified paying $4 more a Bangbuster.

What did you all order?

The Warm Up Crew might be interesting if they didn't ruin it with the rear zipper and super short styling. 

This jacket is kind of cute - Rise and Shine Jacket. I want to try it on in the store.


A new jacket style is revealed in the Spring Fling pack photo.


New striped Frond Cool Racerback is revealed in the banner.

 New jacket style.

New color in the Practice Freely tank is revealed.

New Cool Racerback revealed - Surge?

Blissful "headband"...aka 14$ brastrap.

LOVE when my paypal funds become available right on upload night... :) Pulled the trigger on the bleached coral energy bra and speed shorts. Hoping the speeds aren't see through!

I was wondering why the model was sporting a black Scuba in the previous pics -if not to torture us--now I see why. OK so you've lined the hood -now lengthen the jacket and add the side rib panels Now that amounts to $108

What is the top/jacket in the photos with the black backpack? Anyone see it?

Marlies said...

Where are the new pace setter skirts in regular length???

Marlies said...

Oh, and new scuba hoodie with LINED hoods!!! And good zippers!!! Looks like they are hearing the feedback from customers! :-)

LuluAddict said...

@ Marlies - good catch on the lined hood Scuba. It looks a little longer, too. I had heard they were going to lengthen them. I need to try it on when I see it in the store.

susan said...

Bought the Scuba in both Dune/white and mellow yellow - the colors are too cute! I have been waiting for pacesetter regular (hopefully in inkwell) - am slightly disappointed it's not available but it's a good thing to not have to buy them all at once! 2 Scubas are good enough for now!

@anon 10:16 PM-good observation and so true. Right back to the original Scuba-keep the changes coming.

Energy bras in frond and bleached coral and a mellow lemon crb!

LC said...

I have the gingham frond CRB which I really like but I would still love a solid frond CRB or power Y, the free to be tanks just don't do it for me. I have tried them a couple of times because I really want them to work but they hug my torso in all the wrong places plus they're a little short. So here's hoping! Also am I the only one who's confused by the texture on those frond wunder unders? I'm interested to see what those are like in person.
Nothing for me tonight.

Anonymous said...

I'm hoping my local store has the mellow yellow crb...I'll see how close it is to the clarity yellow ribbed an make a decision from there :)

Did you all notice the frond swiftly?! I want that!!!! Super pretty!

Anonymous said...

Also in the headwear banner looks like a modified skinny satin pirouette headband. It has a metal lulu logo sewn on. I like that better than that new, weird bra strap (blissful?) headband. :-/

Anonymous said...

There's also a new circle scarf on the accessories banner!

Marlies said...

I didn't order anything but I'm going to the store tomorrow to pick up some pants that I took in last week for hemming. I'm sure I will walk out of the store with something new... ;-) oh yeah, I bought the still pant in black last week. Still not sure about them...

@Anon 10:43 pm - The frond WUC texture looks like the black-white WUC that came out in Dec 2012. I forgot what the black-white mix WUC was called.

The frond WUC fabric reminds me of Band-Aid fabric.

Where is the frond speeds and swiftly?!? :(

Anyone know if the Run: Pace Tank is a TTS or size up tank? TIA!

Ching-a-ling said...

The price of the energy bra went up from $42 to $48 overnight. I bought a black energy bra on md for $44 last wed at the Beverly Blvd store. Called them today to arrange a return since it didn't make sense to pay ABOVE retail price on something they should have md. Manager agreed by verifying price online this am and I just got done with return transaction prior to store close at 7pm. I'm loving the two toned bleached coral. Definitely heading to the store tomorrow to try that one on.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know if the frond WUC look / feel like the gingham CRBs? I felt the gingham CRBs today and was not impressed. Didn't even try one on. But frond WUC would look so nice with the other items I'm ordering. I want them so badly but not if they look like the gingham CRBs. If anyone knows I'd really appreciate the info. Thank you!!

becky said...

Hey ladies!! Does anybody have a size 6 and 8 Energy bra that they could measure across the bottom band laying flat? I'm not sure which one to order and that info would be super helpful and appreciated!! Thanks if any of you can get to it :)

Hi there I am in Australia and purchased the pace tank last week. Found it ran TTS and flattering fit. Hope that helps!

If you are looking for the bleached coral or white swiftly SL you'll find them under the Run Swiftly heading, but it doesn't look like appear if you just look at tanks.

The cooler LOL

Anonymous said...

I will check out the mellow yellow crb in store. Oh no, another blue crb coming in surge? lol I love blue and have too many!

Funny, they updated the wmtm banner to put an asterisk on final sale and a disclaimer right up top that says "*it's yours for keeps (no returns, no exchanges". presumably they still get challenged on this, and they should with their myriad of quality issues etc. i'm fine with final sale, it's just those boxing day price drops 3 days later still peeve me off.

Anonymous said...

nothing for me. where are the Swiftly SL tanks?

the gingham WUC are cute, but I already got the tank

Anonymous said...

wait wait wait so there is a reversible bangbuster that reverses from white to white for $18 or a non-reversible one that is just white for $14....

RunLikeTheWind said...

Honestly, I'm more excited about the sneak peaks in the banner than anything else--a Surge CRB?? Be STILL my heart!! I was surprised to see the Tender Violet reversible WUC again, we saw those in November, I think. Gorgeous color. I wasn't able to pull the trigger then, and I'm not sure I'll be able to now.
I was initially excited about the Mellow Lemon (I keep thinking Mellow Yello) CRB, but then I remember there was that yellow striped CRB sneaked in one of the banners, maybe on the AUS side? I'd much rather have that over a solid.
The dune gingham Groovys are nice and understated, I like the pattern.

Anonymous said...

Yay! I finally got to order the still pants! I order one in every color, the mellow lemon crb and the beaming blue brushed forme (they finally restocked my size).

Where is the vinyasa scarf in pink (sorry don't know exact color name) that was shown forever ago with a woman wearing a green jacket (sorry don't know that color name either). Lulu has gone downhill IMHO this past year. I haven't liked a single thing.

lexa said...

Nothing today. I want that new Frond CRB when it's available!! And maybe the surge CRB, too.

Anonymous said...

i'll pass on the seastripe frond CRB i think, it's a bit too preppy for my taste, but that new blue color looks nice!!!

ENERGY BRAS! Thrilled!!

If anyone gets a chance to try on the new 'lined' scuba let us know how it is!
I am kicking myself for not buying a scuba last year. I just couldn't take the plunge spending that much on a jacket then and now I wish I had because I have always wanted one, but not the cheap-o version they have put out recently.

Anonymous said...

I just got a white Energy bra and another pair of black Groovy Runs. I've been wanting a white lulu sports bra for a while, so I was happy to see that, even though the All Sport is my fave, Energy is a good second choice. I was hoping to see the frond Groovy Runs, but after some thought, I know I'll wear another pair of black ones waaaay more than green.

Still pants - I looooove my two pair from the last time they were out, and was considering the inkwell, but I already have the inkwell Studio pants, so that's good enough. For people who were wondering if they would come out in regular and tall lengths again, looks like they are all going to be 35 1/2" inseam, which is the length of my talls. I'm 5' 11", so it's all good for me but others might want to note they will prob need hemming if they want the old "regular" length.

Jen said...

Nice to see the PD store all over the banners!

Got the frond and bleached coral energy bras. Yippee for new energy colors!

Anonymous said...

Just a bangbuster for me. Agree warm up crew caught my eye but $100?? Looks like a WMTM candidate. Lined Scuba is a good idea but a little too late...scubas are all the rage among the jr high / hs girls in my neighborhood and I feel ridiculous as a grown woman in them now.

I got the black still pants in size 2 (I'm usually a 4). Tried this in the store and definitely size down for me or I have to cinch at the waist a lot. Frond top with he zipper in the back, pace tank in bleached coral and the bangbuster in bleached coral reversible. I am still thinking I should just buy the relaxed fir pants online in black since these fit me TTS but I was fickle last night. I am waiting for a frond pacesetter maybe or that swiftly is nice. Knowing that this is close to the Pantone color of the year (emerald green to be exact) made it easy for me to buy green. Oy, I need more space. I really liked the energy bras but they swallow me. They overflow my tanks or most tops. I am small chested (B) and petite so the amount of fabric used for the energy bra is much like a cut off tank for me. That frond will be cute showing behind the pace tank. Great accent color for that little sexy in all of us.

Bought the stills in inkwell, SS Swiftly in mellow yellow/burning yellow, unlined studio pant in inkwell and bleached coral run speed shorts. Excited to try some new things. have not tried on the stills, unlined studios and run speeds since I lost weight. Hope they it well or maybe not, I might be in trouble;) Bought the beautiful lined studio pants last week in black swan and the alberta lake and I think I am hooked. Now to see my tailor to hem my pants while keeping the drawstring.

PS. Thank you LLA for a great blog. It has saved me from some bad purchases!! Also shown me some new things to try that I may not have.

Love the look of the striped Frond CRB -- will definitely pounce on that when uploaded. Still debating the Energy Bra. I loved the Flow Y under a CRB until lulu ruined it...I'm small-chested and petite, and the Energy, while beloved by many, seems to be the go-to bra for more busty gals. Any less-endowed girls out there who have tried it and loved it? Also, LLA -- the Yoga Camp Crops were in Oz for ages, but now only in black. Any intel on whether those will return to NA this spring? Still kicking myself for only buy the Fog ones last year...

Did the energy bras go up in price? I swear I saw the black energy bra on the website for $42 last week. Today, its $48! UGH!!!!

Anonymous said...

I go the Still Pants in black and dune! These are my first Stills so I really appreciate everyone's advice to go down a size.

I'm also really tempted by the Vinyasa to Vino bag in the Dune/Bleached Coral/Black. However I am concerned that the Bleached Coral is too bright/neon? Can anyone comment who has seen the color in person. I would to use this bag as my laptop bag/work purse/gym bag, but I'm concerned the bleach coral may not be professional enough for work if it is really bright. I have to order online so I greatly appreciate everyone on this blog's feedback on products!

Re: scuba hoodie w lined hood- just bought the
Mint moment scuba stretch and the hood is lined. It feels like a good quality scuba and I am very happy with it.

Sammi said...

did only the american site get the bleached coral bangbuster? or did I somehow miss it on the Canadian site?

I sure hope I didn't miss it! Bang Busters are the only headbands i wear lately, and no store around me.

Anonymous said...

I LOVE the striped frond CRB and that blue (surge?) color. I love bleached coral too but am heading to my store to make sure it looks good on my skin tone. I want the speeds but they all fit so differently that I've banned myself from ordering them online because I almost always either have to return or exchange for a different size (or they are see through).

Hi Becky, i have a size 6 in angel blue that measures 12 1/2" across the band and a size 8 currant one that measures 13 1/4". For reference I am 34 C i find the 6 more supportive for running, I got an 8 on markdown, but find the fit isn't that much different. I just just bought the coral one in a 6. Hope this helps!

I forgot I also bought the Frond Wunder Under crop. It shall be interesting.

Anonymous said...

Not sure.....if anyone else noticed, but if you LOOK closely at the pictures online, of the Still pants, (especially in the dune colour) you can see where they "pinned up" the hem on the model!!! I first saw it on the dune colour and then looked closer at the inkwell & black and saw those pinned too!!! LOL... Guess the model is only about 5'5 or 5'6, which isn't short....but I thought she was much taller!? What drew my eye there....was the unfinished look of the hem! Ive never seen this before on the Lulu model. Interesting....

Question: Does anyone know if the new dune gingham groovy run shorts are see through? Would love some input :) Thanks!!

Anonymous said...

OT a bit but a few have asked so I thought I'd report in. I received my super cute bleached coral studio crops. As you know, these are unlined. They are PERFECT, IF you have no buttcrack, a absolutely perfect ass and no moles. Seriously, I tried them on, and I can see my crack perfectly. I don't feel that my crack is excessively deep or dark such that it would warrant full viewing through pants. Also, I have a tiny mole on my butt and not shockingly you can SEE THE MOLE THROUGH THE PANTS. I am now completely convinced that if LLL would make studio crops from plastic wrap they would also make them unlined.

Also, I have unlined white Yoga Camp crops from last year and those are WAY less see-through.

They will immediately go back.

mellow lemon is a really pretty color in person - tried it on in store today. doesn't work with my skin tone but very pretty, light yellow a lot of you have been looking for. was thinking of getting the bleached coral swiftly tank but it is super short and shoddy looking - sad :( ended up with the CRb instead - such a pretty color!!!

Anonymous said...

I ordered the Frond energy bra, the Frond free to be tank, the reversible bang buster in bleached coral/ pop orange, and the bleached coral CRB. I'm pretty much a LULU newbie, so I'm getting a few tops to start my collection. This is my 3rd purchase and I'm an addict!!!!

Anonymous said...

Getting my first pair of plain black wunder unders crops. Can someone tell me why some people get the black with black waistband over the black with print waistband? I don't understand the benefit of the black/black over the black/print since the print ones can reverse to black/black. Is the material different or something? Thanks!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 1:59 pm - I agree, I would get a pair with a print since they are reversible. The only reason I can think is because they don't care for the colored waistband and/or have nothing to match it.

The educator told me they are very sheer she recomended a long tunic top over

Re: new jacket with the Spring Fling pack, that looks like Dance Studio material?

@ 8:40, Bleached Coral is not neon. It is a pretty colour in the CRB; I don't know about on the bag.

I love the large dot pattern on the spring fling bag......does anyone think we'll see more of that? I hope so!

Oh really they called it 'mellow lemon' instead of 'mellow yellow'. It's in at one of my local stores anyway, so I'll swing by before hot yoga tonight as it's on my way. Will review and possibly buy. Tonight I'm wearing Bleached Coral. Love this one!

I avoid quilted waistbands on my wunder unders because I find that if I wear them in reverse the stitching digs in to my tummy and leaves a pattern which makes me itch.

I have noticed most pants are rolled up on one model

I am definitely addicted to the Studio pants. Bought 4 lined (Black, blackswan, alberta lake, polarcream) and 1 unlined (coal) in the last months alone! I did try the Still pants at the store as everyone seemed to be so excited about it. I didn't find it flattering on me. I wear a 6 in Studio pants and tried on the 4 Still and it was huge on me. Didn't try the 2 since I wasn't liking it. I am also addicted to the Pacesetter skirts - got 3 already and will probably buy more as new color/print comes out! I need to find a job to support my Lululemon addiction!!!!

Anonymous said...

I was in love with the bleached coral studio crops too.... Until I realized they are completely see through!!!! Such a disappointment! Lulu could make so much more money if they stopped making transparent clothes!
I'm sorry, but I know some people say, "I'll just wear a long shirt" or " I just won't wear these pants to a fitness class with bending" or "I'll lounge in these at home". I think that's ridiculous. Have we lowered our standards so much that we will pay $90 for see through clothes? I certainly won't!

As for the bleached coral... I love it, not too neon, and I find it looks great on a lot of girls!!! so pretty for spring! The bleached coral crb is the first thing I've ordered from lulu in months... And I have quite the collection. I'm hoping someday the quality returns so I can add to this collection!

Sizing help!!! how does the sizing for the groovy run shorts run??? I wear a 4 in speeds, 2 in the pace setter skirts, 2 in winder unders, 4 in run inspires (sheerness factor)..do the speeds and groovys run the same?

SeattleJ said...

@anoymous 1:59 - the reversible WU's tend to use colored thread. For ex: purple/black will use purple thread so that the black side will still show purple. Some probably prefer plain black, esp for work.

Lisa said...

I went by my store to try on the Mellow Lemon Power Y and it was so sheer! The cup inserts were plainly visible, so I decided against it. The CRB isn't very soft either. It's almost like Lulu doesn't want my money! I went in hoping to buy one of the two Mellow Lemon items and came out empty-handed.

Sadly, my store also keeps having awesome markdowns in a size too small for me. Last week they had a Polar Haze swiftly SS, and this week they had a Laceoflage Scoop Neck Tank on markdown. I almost convinced myself to buy them, but they're just too tight. Sad day.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone tried the gingham inkwell wuc or the frond? Any reports on them being sheer or having to size up like the the gingham CRB?

purrfiktangil said...

Just last weekend I re-organized my running clothes dresser (yea, yea, I know having a full 6-drawer dresser that only holds running clothes is probably a sign of an addiction), and said "I do not need any more sports bras...they just won't fit." And then what do I see first thing this AM? The Energy Bra is back and in bleached coral and pop orange, so I had to have it haha. I also picked up the dune gros gingham speed shorts I've been thinking about since they first showed up and another pair of the padded run sock since they keep my toes warmer in the winter. I am definitely interested in the new running jacket with the hood, but I think I want to see some real-life pics of it on ppl first.

Do we know that the new blueish CRB is actually surge? I already have a surge CRB and a surge wee stripe CRB and they are definitely greener, but maybe it's just my screen? I love this color though.

Anonymous said...

FYI: I tried on the new lined hood scuba in my regular size, 6, and it fits really nicely, like the old ones. It's also really soft and the length is longer than the normal crappy scuba stretch! I'm happy with the changes they made to these new ones. I just want the hood to be bigger.

I have the gingham WUC.
I did not size up, I find them TTS.
They are not in the least bit sheer.
The only other "light" colour WUC i own are the cashew/black tonka stripe from last year, and those are MUCH more revealing than the gingham.
The gingham is thicker and in my opinion, more compressive, so they are actually quite forgiving/flattering.

@ 2:17 PM you stand alone. If you go read the other posts on that bag and the dots, most people really can't stand it. Very cheap and Ivivia looking.

Anonymous said...

Lisa 3:11, totally disagree with you that the Mellow Lemon CRB is not soft. It's quite soft! I love the colour and think the texture/soft is great.

Re: WU's, why not to buy with coloured waistband. I'm very picky and the waistbands date themselves, look tired, imo. I have a few, but pretty much like to keep it classic. I prefer a solid black or something other than the quilting. Waistband gets covered up by my CRB's anyway.

Thanks for your answer! Don't live near a store, so I have to order online, those gingham inkwell are really tempting me, but I had to size up for the gingham Frond CRB, so I was wondering if it will be tha same.
