The Newest From Lululemon!

I ordered 4 items from Monday night's upload, and I love all of them!  But I love the new Run: Ta Ta Topper tank the mostest.  :)  I got the black/groovy stripe nimbus.  I'm not usually attracted to black or dark colored tops, but for some reason found this one very striking.  This tank reminds me a lot of the Run: Tame Me tank that I got and returned last year.  I didn't like the open back of the Tame Me.  But this Ta Ta Topper solves that problem with the mesh back, and I am very happy with the way it looks with the white stripes against black.

This top is made of luxtreme in the bust and silverescent in the body, which drapes very well and is light weight.  I love how it fits which is loose but still flattering.  The pleat in the back definitely gives you more curves.  It looks like it should come with a built in bra but it doesn't.  I got it in my normal size 4 and I think it fits true to size.  Here it is on me:

I'm pretty happy with the placement of the groovy stripe nimbus print on the chest.  I was afraid I'd get one that was mostly white.  

In the above photo, I am also wearing the new Run: Mod Moves crop I got in the same color - black / groovy stripe nimbus / white.  I actually really liked the way these looked when they first came out.  But I wasn't too crazy about any of the colors it came in.  I tried them on in the store though and almost bought the solid black ones.  They fit so nicely!  They are like instant leg-slimmers because of the cut.  The luxtreme in these feel nice, and they are super comfy on.  I also love the large mesh area on the back of the legs.  The large side pockets are awesome - my Power Vinyasa crops and Run A Marathon crops have them, and I use them all the time to put my phone in when I'm lifting.  It's very nice to not have to carry it in my hand.  I can see myself reaching for these a lot.  Also true to size.

So the waistband is double layered for the most part, since they need to put in the hidden pocket.  But I'm not sure why they didn't do it all the way through.  As you can see in the photo below, there is a piece missing right in the middle of the waistband.  It's a little strange.

The back has this downward curve that is super flattering:

The waistband only has groovy stripe nimbus on the sides.  The front and back are solid white.  I like that the side pocket has 2 stripes on it as well.

I also got the cool racerback in groovy stripe nimbus!  I guess I really like this print lol.  This cool racerback is quite stretchy, and made in Canada.  But it is a little sheer still.  I actually don't mind though.  I think it's kinda cute when the color/print of your bra shows through a little.

The stripe placement on the one I got is exactly the same as the web model one:

I don't have that many Power Ys and have sold most of what I had before.  I think the only one I have now is the one in discovery stripe and I don't wear it all that often.  So I had doubts about getting another Power Y.  But what I did differently this time was that I ordered it in a size 4, because I forgot that I normally size up to a 6 in this tank.  I actually like the fit of the 4 much better now!  I think it could be because these are made of luon light now instead of regular weight luon.  So they are stretchier.  But I find the size 4 more supportive in the chest and just fits better overall.

I don't mind the stripe placement of this tank I got.  Because I think the wider pink stripes right around the natural waist actually makes it more visually slimming.  But I don't like how you can see this weird, dark, shadowy gap in between the boobs since the material there is mostly white:

I might take this to the store and see if I can exchange it for a different one.  Or exchange it for the cool racerback when that comes out.  But I kind of like it as a Power Y though.  We'll see!


  1. I really like the looks of the groovy stripe nimbus crb and I ordered one this morning.

    I have been wearing the crb's a lot lately for running and yoga and just general summer wear.

  2. What size did you get in the mod moves crops? Should I get the same size I wear in wunder unders? Thank you!

    1. Yes, I got it in the same size as my other Lulu bottoms (4). True to size. =)

  3. Hi, I ended up getting the same mod moves crops, but the Power Y version of the groovy stripe nimbus (was inspired by your outfit!). I go the Mod Moves in the 4 (TTS for me too), but they are a bit sheer when bending over :(. BTW - thankyou for posting the stuff from your sale listings to me in Australia so quick :)
