new at lululemon: SmoothCover fabric!

by Cristina

Thank you to lululemon for sponsoring this post, and for providing me with the awesome Fall gear you see here. Especially, my new favourites, Instill High-Rise Tights in the new SmoothCover fabric

The new SmoothCover fabric from lululemon

The new Instill High-Rise Tights are made of the brand new SmoothCover fabric, and I must say these are instantly my new favourites. I anticipate buying these in crop length if they become available, fingers crossed, and in multiple colors! These are going to be in heavy rotation. 

SmoothCover has the tactile feel of soft align crops, but the weave is dense and thick and very supportive. You get all of the sweat wicking, quick – dry benefits of Everlux, but with the cozy soft feeling of Aligns. I love how matte these are, and how super smoothing and slimming. They feel like a dream!

I take my usual size in these (same size for Aligns, Wunder Trains and Invigorate Tights). They stay up and don’t really move at all on me which is great for a workout. The material is warmer than Everelux, which makes them perfect for colder evening runs. 

I also got the It’s Rulu Run Long Sleeve, and the Swiftly Tech SS 2.0 in Symphony Blue to put together this adorable outfit. I sized up one in the RULU long sleeve as I typically do with the slimmer fitting rulu tops. The fit is perfect and a better hit for me than previous years rulu run tops.  I ordered my typical size in the Swiftly Tech SS. I just love this entire outfit. Symphony Blue with the matte black Instill High Rise Tights is perfection. 

 The Insulated Quilted Pullover is my TTS and a pretty roomy fit. This pullover will be perfect for chilly nights walking the dogs. I love having a kangaroo pocket to stash my phone, treats and waste bags. Having a pullover instead of a zip up jacket is ideal when I don’t have my hands free to zip up while walking two dogs.

Looks great on you. The team Canada stuff is ok as well. I guess I just say ok. Idk but I keep waiting every Tuesday for the lululemon unique pieces we have come to anticipate. But each week, same regular basic t’s, sweatshirts, and tanks. The only real fall jackets are the scuba’s and defines. Whatever happened to for example, the strides and other different pieces. Third year at least of the same puffer coats and vests. I love lululemon and have well over 100 pieces of it, but haven’t purchased much at all this year. There just is nothing special. I wish they would go back to what made them special. Is it just me, or are others feeling this way?

Why can I not find this fabric? And it links to wunder unders? Different US names?
