It’s Lululemon Fitting Room Reviews day! Today was a big mail day for me. My husband retrieved my multiple bags off the doorstep and shook his head.

Before I get to the reviews, a note. I read some feedback earlier this week that the way I alter my photos in fit review posts is potentially making colors look less accurate. Thank you for sharing that! My goal for this blog is to be informative and useful. Specifically, the feedback was in regards to the LA Boyfriend Tie-Dye Hoodie post. I want to let you know that up until this post today I have never used filters, but I do adjust my photos for light balance. The LA Boyfriend Tie-Dye post was adjusted for light balance by hand on a particularly dark and dreary day that was really effecting the accuracy of the photos.

The three adjusted photos I have here are using a filter that I just purchased (a brightening neutral filter) and not hand adjusted individually like I normally do. I did this for aesthetics purposes and because all the rest of the pictures in todays post will not be adjusted at all. Normally what I do is brighten each of my photos on really dark overcast days. My house has grey walls throughout and a lot of shadow so I sometimes have to play with the light balanced so you can see the details and get what I think is a more accurate representation of the color. Sometimes it’s correcting a washed out photo, sometimes it’s correcting a lot of dark shadows. On my screen my adjustments may look perfect but your screen may be different. My selfie mirror is also situated so that I’m back lit unfortunately. Anyways, I hear you guys and agree that un-alted photos are most useful to you so I’m going to make sure I include them in every fit review posts from now on. I will also make a notation of altered photos so that they don’t get confused with unaltered.

I do want to keep some brightened photos in the headline photos and on the front page and at the top of posts – because frankly the aesthetics matter to me and usually the altered photos are more true to life than my un altered photos. I will make sure the post is formatted so the brightened photos are ‘headlines’ and the unbrighted are with the fit review information. I don’t adjust the colors, I don’t adjust for blemishes or skew the optics in anyway. My goal is to enhance for accuracy, not disguise or alter. Hope you’re all cool with that. Please let me know if you have more feedback, or any other suggestions. This community means the world to me and I appreciate so much that you not only follow this blog, but care enough about the content to let me know when something could be better. THANK YOU!

I.LOVE.THESE. I don’t think these are ‘wide leg’ so much as straight legged. I’ve seen comparisons to the old Still Pants and I agree they are really similar, but so much better. Cropped wide legged or straight legged pants are tough on someone hippy but I find these really flattering because they are nice and slim in the leg, and streamlined around the hips. They are a little more ‘outfit’ worthy and slightly less casual than Align Joggers. I plan to wear these with a fitted square neck tank, and cute strappy sandals. These are my TTS and I like the fit, but I have ordered a second pair in a size up because I also want a pair that is looser fitting in the waist. The online photos show the black pair in a looser fit, and the violet verbena looks to be more fitted.

Soft Ambitions High Rise Short

The Soft Ambition High Rise Shorts are another winner for me. The price is unpleasant but they are a great fit and the material is really nice. Definitely an upgrade from cotton terry shorts or older versions of modal. This modal fabric is really soft and thick, squishy and substantial. It’s thickness makes it more structured than modal typically is. I love the length and the rise, and the wider legs. The dark grey shown here are my TTS and the light grey below is my size up. I think I prefer my TTS just because it’s a little shorter and narrower in the leg. The size up is really comfortable and not too big, but looks a bit more casual. I will definitely keep the TTS in the darker color, and swap out the lighter grey for my tts if I decide to keep two pairs.

Ease Of It All Dress

*Altered photo | Neutral Brightening Filter Used

The Ease Of It All Dress is going to be returned, but not because I don’t like it. I like it a lot compared to every past Lululemon summer dress, but I don’t need it and don’t think I’ll wear it often enough to justify it. Not this year at least. I will definitely snatch it up on markdown.

I ordered this in my TTS and I think overall the fit is right, but I am self conscious that at certain angles you can see my mommy pooch a bit. It’s really flowy though and doesn’t cling, it’s just the nature of the material and possibly the lighting. The size up would correct that but then the length would be way too long and the shape overwhelming. I was pleasantly surprised that the armholes on this dress aren’t as huge as they appear online. You can see here that it mostly covers up my dark bra, although you can see it peaking out. With my arm raised you can see more of it as it pulls the armhole open, but standing naturally you don’t see much. I’d feel comfortable wearing this with a nice bra or a sports bra as a casual lounge dress. The other thing I worried about with this dress was that there was not enough of an a-line on this to give it shape. It’s subtle, but there is definitely enough of an A-line so that this doesn’t look like a sack. The racer straps go in just a bit and the ribbed cuffs give some detailing. I wish this dress was just a little bit shorter though. On me it’s practically full length.

The material is really nice. It’s modal but feels more like that stretchy vitasea cotton that Lululemon uses. It has an almost velvety texture like cupro.

If you plan on spending a lot of days by the pool this summer, definitely consider this.

Honourable Mention….

Swiftly Relaxed Long Sleeve 2.0

I was in store today doing returns and this beauty caught my eye. It’s stunning! I tried it on and it’s incredibly soft and pretty. I’m not sure if all the colorways are this soft and dreamy but this one certainly is. It came home with me. It was the lone size in store so if you spot one in your size, try it on!

  1. Lol- my husband shakes his head too! The wide leg aligns look very comfy on you. I really liked the swiftly 2.0. Is that tts? What size do you usually get? Thanks for the great try on reviews!

    1. The swiftly I got in my TTS and it’s a nice comfortable fit. Normally I get my TTS but if it’s a pale color and especially clingy I sometimes size up. This is comfortably loose in TTS without being baggy.

      By the way, so sorry that your comment was delayed in being posted. for some reason every single comment I’m getting is going to a spam folder so I have to manually go and check and then approve it. I will have that fixed as soon as possible.

  2. That swiftly long sleeve is beautiful up close. Seeing it online did not look very appealing but your photos make it look gorgeous. Now I’ll have to get that swiftly.

    1. Agree. I maybe noticed the pretty purple online but it was nothing special enough that I had to see it in person. It totally caught my eye in store with the little confetti flecks and the contrasted reverse side.

      By the way, so sorry that your comment was delayed in being posted. for some reason every single comment I’m getting is going to a spam folder so I have to manually go and check and then approve it. I will have that fixed as soon as possible.

  3. The wide leg crops look pretty comfy on you. I’m really liking the swiftly 2.0. Was that tts? What size do you usually get? Also, is that a heavier material or the same swiftly material? Thanks for all the try-on reviews.

    1. The swiftly 2.0 is my TTS. It depends with swiftlies. Normally I get my TTS but if it’s a pale color and especially clingy I sometimes size up. It is a heavier material, but feels softer and more breathable.

      By the way, so sorry that your comment was delayed in being posted. for some reason every single comment I’m getting is going to a spam folder so I have to manually go and check and then approve it. Hopefully I can get that sorted out. I’m not wanting to have to actively approve comments or have comments delayed.

  4. I have been looking at that Relaxed Swiftly online for a while now but kept deciding it looked too washed out to go for it. Your review is helpful! It’s not actually reversable is it?

  5. I received my wide-leg aligns as well. They’re super soft and comfy, but I’m still debating whether or not to keep them. I’m short and curvy in the butt and thighs these days, and I don’t feel like they flatter me. I usually wear a 6 in aligns and an 8 in tights, so I ordered these in an 8 since I didn’t want them to be tight in the thighs. Should I keep a $100 pair of pants that are comfy for working at home (I am sure I will be here for quite a while longer) but I probably wouldn’t wear them out of the house? I’ll think about it.

    *Those shorts look great on you, btw. Especially the light-coloured ones.

    1. Seriously? No, I have gained weight. At last check I was up 6lbs. I was running in April/May but this month haven’t run much at all.
