Thanks to Mrs. O for this fantastic fit review!
I had a quick second to stop by Lululemon to see the hinshu multi print in person. I really liked the print. Because it’s so colorful, it will be very versatile. You’d be able to wear it with almost every color from pastels to bright colors depending on how you want to style it. I selected the print in the Train Times Pant (one of my favorites). I thought the mesh in the back would break up the print a bit and not seem so overwhelming on a 7/8 tight. But in seeing the pictures, I’m almost thinking the solid print might look nice. So, I’m going to try it in the Speed up or Fast & Free tights to see how I like the print solid. Although the colors are bright, the striped pattern is subtle and breaks up the colors in such a way that it’s not overwhelming. I think even ladies with thicker legs can pull off the print because the horizontal stripes are slimming and because of the color distribution it draws the eyes to the center. The print is backed on white. I did not notice any fading with the pattern on a knee bend or squat test in my TTS (4). If you’re in between sizes the smaller size might show some pattern fading but I don’t think that much. I pushed my fingers through the tight and it was still hard to see the white come through. I tried it on with the Porcelain Pink Swiftly LS. Surprisingly, the pink wasn’t as see-through as I thought it might be; especially considering I was wearing a bright green bra underneath. It just so happened the Swiftly I tried on was the last one and in my size, so it was marked down. Even though initially I wasn’t sold on the color, after having tried it on, I really liked it. So, despite my spending ban, I purchased it on markdown.
