Another Titika Order =)

I made another order from Titika since the USD is doing so strong lol.  I figure I better take advantage of this for as long as it lasts.  I ordered 4 items, but they emailed me after I placed my order that one of the items was sold out (this keeps happening to me with every online order lately!).  So I got 3 items.  I am returning one of them.  But, I really really like the 2 that I am keeping!

First I got the Milton bra.  It's only $36 USD at full price (48 CAD)!  This is my 3rd bra from Titika.  All 3 are in size 4.  But this one definitely fits the best.  The other 2 feel ok in the band, but the straps are almost too long so they don't offer that great of support.  The Milton bra is perfect though.  I also love the design because it's different, and the neutral color will go with everything.



By the way, I feel like this Titika model also models for Lululemon?!  Or she just *really* looks like one of the Lulu models.



On me:




Here's the print in the strap up close:



The second item I got that I really love is the Reveal Top, in mint ombre... because I love ombre!  It's $50 USD/ 66 CAD which is not a bad price at all.





I got this top in size S, and it is the perfect semi-slouchy fit that I love!  The material is very thin and lightweight.  It's perfect.




Maybe this side picture is better to see how the back drapes:



I love the color in this top:





This logo seems too heavy for the fabric though - as you can see, it weighs down the sweater quite heavily.  It would have been better if they stitched the bottom of the logo onto the sweater too.  I guess you can easily fix that yourself... or just cut it off:




 So this sweater comes in pink ombre too.  But there are no pictures of it except this one:



I'd imagine it's cute too, and I'm very tempted to get it as well!  I do have to say that it stretches out some though.  I wore it around yesterday and it stretched in length and slightly in width.  So that kind of sucks.  But it's pretty so... lol.

Ok, here's the top I'm returning - it is the Bandit Top and it is online only.  


Not sure how this top got two 5 star reviews, but I am not a fan of it on me.  I got it in size S, which seems too short.  This is a problem I've had with a couple other tops from Titika.  I guess a size M would probably fit better assuming it would be longer.  But I'm just not a fan of the boxy fit, and I think the mesh looks a bit cheap.  So I'm returning it even though it's only $27 USD/36 CAD.  Titika sends you a free return shipping label though, so why not.  



Not a fan of how the mesh and black stripe combo sticks out:


Good idea... doesn't quite work.




By the way, this is what I ordered but they were sold out - the Julian Pant.  They look cute and comfy!  They have the same mesh design thing going on as the Bandit top though.  So maybe it's a good thing that I didn't get them.



I'm really happy with the 2 things that I love from this order though!  I might grab the pink ombre Reveal top at some point, when I figure out what else I want so I can get to $100 for free shipping!

  2. These look really cute. I'm tempted to order after I'm done moving. How does the bra fit?I like the fit of Lorna Jane bras and Lululemon are not enough support.

    1. It definitely fits closer like LJ bra than Lulu bra. But the padding is not as substantial as LJ. I love my LJ bras too. =)

  3. Love both the bra and top on you. The bra looks comfy - now I want one. I had wanted to order the bandit top before but am glad I didn't lol. I had also wanted the pants but they didn't have my size.

    Thanks for reviewing. So sad for us Canadians that our dollar is so low. No shopping in the US for me.

    1. Those pants are never in my size! I've checked multiple times before. Thought I got lucky and they restocked, but turned out it was just a website glitch that I was able to order it lol. Oh well.

  4. I love the mint ombre sweater! I like the bra, too, but I'm busty and it probably won't work for me.

    Did you pick up the pretty plume WUC??? I'm deliberating on which pattern to keep :P I really like them, though.

    1. I actually got the pretty plume High Times with the mesh wrapping on the legs from Australia! I haven't received them yet though. They should be delivered today or tomorrow. I did see them in the store here as well. They look nice! But I didn't try them on.

  6. What size do you normally wear in lulu bottoms and tops? Trying to figure out what size I need for the Titika items. I like the Reveal top you got!

    1. I think in general you should go 1 size down from your Lulu size. For example, if you are a Lulu 4, order a Titika 2. However, I find that Titika sizing is not always consistent. I also have not tried any bottoms from them so I can't comment on that either. In the jacket and bras I've ordered, sizing down 1 from Lulu was good. But their tops sizing are all over the place. I literally have size S to L (Monarch tank).
