I ran out to Lulu today to try on all the new goods thinking I’d come home with something polka dotted but I came home empty handed instead. I know a lot of you aren’t crazy about the various polka dot prints (I love them, ya’ll are crazy) so I feel like I can wait it out a week or two and think about it instead of just jumping the gun. And to be honest I’m just not happy with the downgrade in fabrics lately with Lululemon. High polyester, cheaper feeling luxtreme, tencil silk jersey galore – these really put a damper on my store trip today and discouraged me from getting anything.
The Run: Bound Bra is really only a running bra for A-small B cups. I’m a C cup sometimes B cup and this bra felt just a smidge more supportive than a Free to Be which I only wear casually so I wouldn’t attempt to run or crossfit in this at all. The difference being that there is more coverage on this bra than the Free to Be so it’s a bit more comfortable but other than that not much difference. My disappointment in this one today was that they went and fucked with the luxtreme fabric composition so it doesn’t feel smooth and cool like all the other luxtreme bras, it feels like a high polyester content luon CRB with sheen on it. I miss the buttery feeling luxtreme that I’m used to and I hope this is just a one off mistake they made because I’ll be really peeved if bras from now on feel like this. I tried on the size 10 and the fit was comfortable but due to the cut at the front there is a bit of underarm fat spillage so I’d have to double check if that shows under a CRB. I loved the design of the straps in the front and back though and I love that it’s edged in black – the black portion is regular luxtreme, the bra portion is the faux luxtreme. This one is on my maybe list.

This is the newest Power Y in the Lilac High Noon Dot print. The new Power y’s are now longer and I love that they did that. I love the look of Power Y’s but find them too short on me so only have one that I love but never wear. This new cut is a vast improvement for me although I wish it was cut a bit wider around the bottom like the CRB’s are so it’s less fitted.
I was really tempted by this one but since it’s Vitasea Light it feels really thin and is a bit more see thru. If you miss the old 5yr Pimas you may like Vitasea Light compared with the regular Vitasea. I may end up getting this one but I’d like to see if an Every Yogi Tee comes in this print/color with regular weight Vitasea for more coverage for me.
This one is the Lilac High Noon Dot Print Cool Racerback and it’s a high poly content CRB. I was really tempted to get this but the polyester deterred me. Also, I’m not sure if I prefer the Rose Quarts High Noon Dot or the Lilac High Noon Dot so I’ll wait it out.
