I got to my store this morning and they had some of the new product in. The True Self Crops are so awesome and pretty in person. I ALMOST got them but hesitated over a pretty minor nit. On the lighter orange blocks of colors are some darker shadow patches that form part of the print and from far away those dark shadow areas of the print made it look like some weird body dimpling going on. Now that I’m home I feel like I was being really picky about that because the pants are truly gorgeous in person and very opaque thanks to the back double panel of fabric. you can let me know what your opinions of the shadows in the print in the comments section below. These are my TTS 10 and they fit very well. The waist is pretty high, probably as high as the High Times Pant or Roll Down Wunder Under Crops. I really love the lattice detailing on the lower calf too. I’ll definitely pick up the Cool Racerback in this print when it’s out.
Here you can see the print shadow on my right thigh.

I picked up the True Self Bra in my TTS 10. I’m a 36B/C cup (depending on the weather) and this fit more modestly than a Free To Be Wild Bra since the bra panel is wider. I would call it definitely less supportive than an Energy Bra and not something I’d wear for running but I do like it for wearing with an open back tank. I was told by an ed that a girl was just in who was a D cup and she purchased the size 8 but I think if you are larger than a C cup YMMV on this one. Definitely try it out because it’s better than the Free To Be Wild for larger cups but you may still have spillage.
I went to my store yesterday after Lulu Addicts tip off that the Surf Shorts now come in a size 12 but they didn’t have them in and they had not even heard that it was available in a 12. They did a search online for me and it appeared that it was only made to a size 10, but today, low and behold, they had a fresh stock of size 12’s. I’m a size 10 but in these shorts I definitely need to size up to a 12….and they are still more bathing suit bottoms than they are shorts. But I do love them, especially in this print, so I brought them home.
