I mean, look at it! Drool.... I'll make these images extra large:
I couldn't believe my eyes when I woke up on Tuesday morning, checked my phone and saw the email from Lululemon showing the return of this tank!!! Beyond excited. I actually bought it while I was still laying in bed.
I read that it is now made of luxtreme instead of the old lullure. With the old tank, I could wear both size 4 and 6, there really wasn't that big of a difference in the body, but the size 6 has bigger cup size and slightly less low-cut. So I figured that maybe luxtreme would fit tighter, and I should probably order a size 6 and not look so scandalous in it. But it's actually bigger than the older version! Just to prove I'm not crazy, I took a picture.
So the top army colored one is size 4, middle one is size 6 and the bottom one is the newest size 6 in aquamarine. The size 4 and 6 in the older make aren't that different in length or width. But the newest one is more than an inch wider and longer than the old size 4. And luxtreme is not as heavy as lullure, so when I cinch it (I always wear this tank cinched), it creates kind of an air bubble under the material which I'm not a fan of. The chest of the new tank fits a little bit looser than the older size 6, with slightly bigger cups as well but it's not a big difference.
I have already placed an order online for size 4 right after I tried it on. I think it will fit me better. Thank God it's not sold out yet. I'll keep the 6 around until I receive the 4 just in case. Because I definitely want this tank.
I also got 2 new Practice Freely tanks! One in lavender dusk and one in aquamarine/discover stripe.
I love my paris pink Practice Freely tank, but I think since it is so bright I can't repeat it too much. So I didn't mind adding 2 more. I really like lavender dusk in person, it is more saturated than the web photo. It looks more purple in person to me. I'm definitely keeping it. The tags actually fell off as I was trying it on, so I guess I have to keep it anyway lol. When I got my No Limit tank in coal/lavender, I wished it had a lavender body instead. And then when the reverse No Limit tank did come out, I somehow missed it again even though a super awesome reader had actually emailed me to let me know! I don't know how that happened. So now I am very glad I have a similar style tank in lavender dusk.
I thought I would love the aquarine/discover stripe one, but the front is completely see-through! I thought it might be a little bit, since you can kind of see the bra pattern underneath on the web model. But it is way more obvious in person. I don't know how I feel about that. I think I might return it.
And lastly, I bought the Power Y tank and a Cool Racerback both in Discovery Stripe. I couldn't decide which one to get so I got both, with the intention of returning one. I really don't need both in the same pattern.
After trying them on, I am definitely keeping the Power Y. I haven't bought a Power Y in a long time, and I think this tank just looks better in Power Y. Or maybe because the Power Y I got has a better pattern distribution. I also didn't really think about this before, but I can really only wear my white Flow Y bra under the Cool Racerback. Other colors I have don't match the pattern and will make it too too busy. So this was an easy decision for me.
I really like how the chest area of the Power Y is mostly deep indigo and aquamarine. I don't like the thin white stripes across the chest on the cool racerback. Plus, the stripes don't stay straight on it. It looks like this on me:
Whereas the Power Y stripes lay straight:
I really like the discover stripe pattern. I think I might have to buy some deep indigo bottoms to go with it. That would look really good. Even my husband likes this pattern! Usually when I ask him what he thinks of my tanks, he says "it's ok", or "sure it's cute" nonchalantly, or "it looks like everything else you have". But when he saw the discover stripe he said he really liked it and that I should keep it!
I am now also thinking that maybe I should return my Flow and Go tank, since it is quite pricey for what it is - I can't wear it to most workouts. But I need to make that decision soon since I believe tomorrow will be the end of my 2 week return period.
Anyway, I'm very excited about my new tanks! Can't wait to wear them!
