Lululemon fitting room try-ons for you this holiday weekend! Hope you are having a great weekend! I didn’t expect to find something to buy today but I definitely did. As always, let me know what you guys think in the comments section.
Just Pleat It Short Sleeve – Pearl Pink
I love Pearl Pink and was really interested in this tee when it first uploaded on Tuesday’s upload. I hesitated ordering it right off the bat because I assumed it would be too short, or sheer, or just disappointing like the Just Pleat It Tank. I really love girly details like pleats though and paired with this pink it’s just perfect. It turns out I absolutely love the fit of this on me. The length is not too short and goes over my waistband, and because of the pleat panel at the sides, the material floats away from the body in a really flattering way. This is my regular size 10. I’m finding I’m sizing up to a 12 more and more so I’d say this is a generous TTS. It is a bit on the sheer side which will suck because most of my sports bras are dark, but with my regular everyday bra in nude you really can’t see much. This top is actually going to be pretty versatile for me because I love a crew neck tee for oly lifting (cleavage during snatches is a real problem) and I would definitely wear this top casually with jeans whereas the sculpt tank II in this color I wouldn’t wear casually. Really loving this short sleeve and I highly recommend it. $74 for a short sleeve though seems absurdly expensive, doesn’t it?
Ugh! I hate it in the next two photos.
Wrap It Back Sweater – Sea Breeze
This sweater was a real problem for me. I definitely need a size up in it because in my TTS, the plainer side really clings to every lump and bump and the effect is just hideous. This is my TTS 10 in these photos and I didn’t get to try the size up for comparison. If you are firmer bodied in this area I think it won’t be problematic, but let’s face it, a good proportion of us have bra and waistband lumps. I first tried this on with the plain side forward and I just cringed. I was ready to take it off and burn it but then decided to reverse it to see what it looked like with the wraps in the front. I actually really love the look of the wraps in the front and find it very flattering, but then the plain back is problematic once again. The wraps in the front really balance a curvy pear shape and accentuate the bust. I think if there had been a slight a-line to the fit of this, or a bit of extra material at the back it wouldn’t cling so badly. Sizing up will help some but more than that I think it needs a slight A-line, and I’d also like more length to it. I’ll probably try it on again on Monday but I’m passing on this sweater regardless. The material is really soft and luxurious and I love the Sea Breeze color.
Cool & Collected Jacket – Sea Breeze
I have a thing for light cotton french terry jackets. I don’t love the thickness of scuba hoodies at all but thin cotton jackets are perfect for me. I loved the color of this jacket, and love the overall feel and fit of this jacket. It’s a really comfortable relaxed TTS and not an awkward length. I was drawn to this jacket because of the pretty color and the feminine ruching detail at the shoulders but I actually think the ruching is slightly unflattering to the overall shape. It gives the illusion of rolled hunch shoulders I think. I’m not sure, maybe I was being fussy. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t have to have it so I’ve got this on my ‘maybe’ list for now. If it ever gets marked down in this color I’ll probably pounce on it
