My store didn’t get the new Fast And Free 7/8 Tights in Black Grape yet, which is what I’m after, but they did have the new Loop Back line in this intriguing ‘acid rubber’ tie die/acid wash cotton terry. I think bot the acid wash grey and black would look so nice layered with stark black. In fact, I liked the look of the hoodie layered under my black leather jacket a lot. The items I tried on where a pass though because I really hated the cut and fit of these pieces.

This was slightly tempting because I really liked the distressed color, and the softness of the french terry, but I was surprised at how loose and boxy this was. If this had been in the cut of many retro lululemon hoodies with the longer length and contouring in the waist, and oversized hood I would have been all over this one. Those old styles really emphasized curves, waist and boobs while this really hides my waist and boobs. The style and fit of the cut of this was a pass but I may go back tomorrow and try a size down and also the acid washed black, just in case the size down solves the boxyness issues.

I love tapered joggers but wow are these ever ‘mom jeans’ cut. They where such an awful cut around the waist and hips that I couldn’t even give you a butt shot. If you want a long butt, these are for you. The waist was snug going up and it’s a higher rise but then the legs where looser, especially in the lower leg. These where a hard pass.

I believe these where 1.5″ inseam and way too short for me. I may have considered them in the acid wash black in a slightly longer length but these won’t work for me. I think these will look cute on some longer leaner legs but I’m just way too curvy for these hip emphasizing cuts.  If you have slight curves and you want to play them up this ‘mom jean’ cut would really work well for you but I’m way too pear shaped for this look.

  1. You look really great, but I 100% agree about Lulu's current lack of care for emphasizing the female form. Why are all the tops so boxy now? It's as if the new Lulu has no access to old Lulu's fabulously flattering patterns. Things are too shapeless for my taste.

  2. Just a thought given they keep releasing some fabulous colors in the align pant and not the wunder under. Are they trying to phase out the wunder under in favor of the align pant?

  3. Thanks for the fit review LLM. We missed you! You look fabulous!! I like the color of the loop back sweatshirt on you. A size down may solve the boxy factor for you. Let us know if it works out. I have the same problem as you do with shorts like that.
