I raced to my store this morning right at store opening in hopes of finding Parallel Striped Wunder Under Crops but unfortunately they weren’t in yet. (note to the awesomest eds at Lululemon Coquitlam and Metrotown; you will see me daily stalking the cubbies until these are out). Instead I came out with the Brisk Bloom Cool Racerback. Its 96% Polyester unfortunately and so it has that feel to it. When I got home to try it on I was surprised at how opaque the white portions where though, usually white polyester Cool Racerbacks are completely sheer on me. I’m not a fan at all of the polyester prints but whatever they’ve done to change the formula from last year to make it thicker and slightly softer, I’m becoming more tolerant of these.
My second purchase today was the Open Your Heart LS in Heathered Black and White Stripe. I size down in the Open Your Heart LS tops to an 8 because they are quite long (still quite long sized down) and the Modal Fabric is guaranteed to stretch out significantly with wear. Just wearing this for 10 minutes it will stretch out almost an entire size. It doesn’t stretch out in a sloppy looking way, but its a uniformed relaxing of the material. I’ve been extremely happy with my Raspberry and Deep Zinfandel ones I got last month which have washed and worn really well with no pilling.
