Store Report ~ Pure Balance Tank & Unicorn Tears Cool Racerback

March 8, 2011

Sorry for being MIA today but we decided to take a Monday off and head to Seattle for a bit of shopping. I ended up trying on the Pure Balance Tank at the University Village Lululemon and the tank is gorgeous in person and the cup portion made out of ruched Sheer Luon was heavenly soft. The Iris Wee Stripe/Wren version of the tank was softer then the black one. I tried on both the size 8 and the size 10 and the tank just doesn’t work for me for a few reasons. First being the very deep and wide v-neck. It was way too open and I felt like I was about to fall out of the cups at any minute. Also, the side portion of the cups was not supportive enough in the sheer luon to pull the breasts inwards and upwards so it just felt too loose in both the 8 and the 10 and gave me a very unflattering bust. Smooshed down and falling to the side. Sad boobies 🙁 I think this tank is reserved for the high and mighty. The straps are slightly long as well so this tank surprised me in that it felt nothing like the Power Y. The Power Y is too tight on me in an 8 but the Pure Balance Tank was loose in the straps, loose in the bust and then form fitting in the body. 

I spotted a few Unicorn Tears Cool Racerback Tanks and checked them out but decided to pass on those ones. The ones I saw had a lot of orange and yellow on the front in large patches and I think if I were to go for this tank I would prefer more black, less color over all..but If it had color I would prefer the pink to be the most prominent. Also, I passed on it because it was a high polyester blend with a lot of sheer white. I also saw the Iris Wee Stripe Cool Racerback Tank and passed for now but it was heavenly soft. Same with the Iris Wee Stripe In Stride Jacket. The Pure Balance Jacket is a very structured and detailed jacket seam wise so I do see why it is a bit more expensive then an In Stride Jacket at $128. It has some really nice piping detail along the arms (reinforced seams??), plus all of the sheer luon panels and just an overall more finished and fine look then In Strides or Strides. I may feel tempted by these jackets in other colors. 

I left with nothing at lulu today but did buy a few beautiful shirts at Anthropologie on markdown. Too bad they don’t go well with Luon or Dance Studio Crops.
