I went in thinking for sure I’d buy the new Conduit Crops because I love silverscent luxtreme (thick and compressive) but I walked out with something different that I saw at the last second.
This new Define Jacket color is gorgeous!! It’s the same blue that is in the new Boom Bloom print that is blue based (we saw a sneak peek last week). I asked the eds and because this color isn’t currently stocked online they couldn’t find out the name of the color ‘JESE’. To me it looks a lot like Tofino Teal (but bluer) and very similar to Limitless Blue. This was the winner for me and I brought it home. I’ll do a color comparison in a little while once I’ve gathered all my similar blues.
I hated this Olive color in the Love Tee LS and Crew. It really washed me out a lot. Strangely, the Olive Swifty is much more saturated and flattering on me.
While this print is definitely not my style or preference, I was surprised that it was pretty flattering on. The movement of the black portions of the print up the leg really ground the print. Still, this is not for me.

These had so much potential. I love the silverscent lines within the luxtreme which are a coppery gold color. I liked the inset stripes on the side of the legs. Sadly, the thick stitching detail holding the mesh together with the luxtreme was tight and it created weird bulging. I also hated how far up the leg the mesh went. I prefer this mesh to the transparent mesh they’ve been using, but still, this is not a flattering material on a toned but lumpy posterior leg. I also found this luxtreme surprisingly thin. Every other silverscent luxtreme I’ve tried or purchased has been soft, thick and compressive while this felt really thin.
Look at the bulging happening here! That band holding the mesh inset to the luxtreme is much tighter and less stretchy than the pant itself.
Blerg on all that mesh.

These where ok except for again, the abundance of rear mesh detailing. Had it not been for that I would have ignored the thinner luxtreme and probably checked out with these.
I didn’t care for the Conduit Singlet shape on me but the material is nice. It’s the same silverscent mesh used in the back of the tights (and has been used a few years ago in tanks) but I just didn’t love the opening at the back and how the tank tents around over my bust. I should have tried the black one on because I also really didn’t care for this color in the tank and I may have liked it more in a more neutral color.
The split stays open. If it had more of an A-line cut it may have layed mostly closed with only the occasional opening.
