I have always bought size 4 (my usual size @ Lululemon) in these tanks, but today I tried on a size 2 and it actually fit pretty well. I liked how it fit on the shoulders and chest better than my 4, but the tummy area was definitely more fitted. Very curve hugging. I don't like having on a tight shirt that show outline of the pant waist underneath. So I decided to go with 4 as usual to have more room and be more comfortable.
I have noticed though, that the new Cool Racerbacks have a slightly curved front and a straight back at the bottom. My old ones are the same straight all the way around. Not sure if I like the curvature, but it's very slight so I guess whatever. Not sure what the point of it is.
The lavender and bubbulicious colors though, I cannot say enough good things about! I had been looking for the older power purple color for a long time but nobody ever had my size. So I was very excited about the new lavender color as it is very similar to power purple. It's not as rich though. It's more a softer, baby, pastel type of purple. I like it a lot. I feel like my hunt for a purple cool racerback is finally over! The bubbilicious color is a soft bubblegum pink. It looks a shade brighter in person than in the pic above. But definitely not a bright pink, which I love.
So glad I was able to get these in my size before they sold out! I also had the rest of my Lululemon giftcard from reaching 50 miles with the run club, so I was able to knock $10 off the price and ended up paying $75 after tax instead of $85. Ugh, so much money for two tank tops huh?
Oh well. They will definitely get a lot of use. I'm hoping that this new color scheme is the direction Lululemon is going from now on. Though I feel very much like an Easter egg with colors like these and chirp (the soft baby yellow). Hehe.
