As promised, my true unadulterated photos of the new Mystic Green Aligns, and Pink Paradise Swiftly. The top photo here was taken yesterday in afternoon light (it was a grey day though), and the try-ons below were taken today. On my screen, these look pretty true to life and accurate. I have some more fit reviews to post (hopefully tonight) from Mrs. O, but I have tendon damage in my hand and it’s feeling a bit achy. If they aren’t up tonight, check back for them tomorrow.
As soon as I saw these I knew I had made a terrible mistake. I love the color so much but these show ‘errthang!’. Not only is every little imperfection on display, every little line and contour of your kneecap is highlighted and shadowed. If you are long and lean and have young knees, these may work for you. For me, even at my very best, most mean and lean, I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing them, let alone now.
I size up in swiftlies because I like the looser fit around my middle and extra few inches of length. This swiftly didn’t feel tight at all but it feels like my size 10 swiftlies and not my sized up ones. It’s still stretchy and soft but I feel like it’s a bit shorter. The color combinations is just gorgeous in this so I’m definitely keeping this one.
After Mrs. O’s fit review on Monday I had to try on the mineralized multi WU’s. I’ve mentioned a few times my love of paint splatter prints so I decided that I should give these a chance despite my now laughable ban island for pants. Mrs. O had mentioned to me before that since I liked the luminescent aligns, I would maybe like these a little more since they have a bit more depth thanks to the different blues. I LOVE these! The print is gorgeous, interesting and easy to match things with. The pattern still reads neutral without being loud. I forgot how much more confident I feel in nice compressive luxtreme. Nulux is nice, but luxtreme is definitely superior. One of you had mentioned that in the comments the other day and I really agree. nulux and nulu are nice, but for working out, luxtreme is much more technical. I miss the days of luon or luxtreme bottoms choices.
