Nothing for me today. I was waiting for the Ombre Hi Rise WUnder Under Pants and I know a lot of you where waiting for the Tech Mesh Tights.
Discussion topic for today’s upload: Are you getting the vibe that Lululemon is skewing towards a more slender long and lean customer base with their crop tops and heel to thigh mesh and unforgiving naked materials? Something I’ve been feeling lately is that lululemon is favouring designs that really work for the size 2-4 model, and sometimes 6, and the designs aren’t really translating to the 8,10,12 model. I would consider myself on the upper end of average athletic, yet not slim, but their designs lately seem to be a specific aesthetic that I’m finding intimidating, even as an athletic person. Many of these items I would never wear to crossfit in, or are impossible for olympic weight lifting class. I don’t consider myself a runner (anymore) but there are a lot of run pieces this fall that really wouldn’t have worked for me for fall/winter running in a mild temperate climate.
There have been pieces this fall that I’ve been loving (more on that in another upcoming post) but overall I feel the aesthetic focus has changed, including in their editorials. What do you think? Do you consider yourself above average athletic and are some of these pieces too intimidating for you to wear?
