Busy mail day today! Tuesday's order just arrived and after trying on a full length luon bottoms I am sweltering. If you where wondering what these pants looked like on a curvy figure, here you have it.
The Pretty Plume High Times I'm liking a lot actually. I thought I'd try them on and hate them on me due to being curvy, the print and that it's a light color. Actually, I really like them and I find them much more flattering than I expected. Even with the owl eyes up top. I ordered my TTS 10 and they are hard to put on, even over the calves. Very little stretch in these and it seems like it's a new luon blend material for lululemon. Snug compressive fit and very little sheerness for such a light color. The material reminds me of Onzie but way more substantial. I suggest staying TTS and battling putting these on because once they are on they are perfect. sizing down would be totally impossible. I'm a bit torn though because despite loving these I'm not sure I'd actually be courageous enough to wear something like this to Crossfit (I'm starting that up full force in September), and I doubt I'd wear these casually. There is my dilemma with pretty lulu pieces where the prettyness overrides it's function.
As far as sheerness goes, I did a full squat test on these and was very surprised they aren't more sheer. You can slightly see the rip tag (but that is expected) but you can't really see anything else. For such light colors I'm impressed at how opaque it is.

These are my TTS 10 again and these where much harder to pull on over my hips than the ones above. I think these have even less stretch so you really have to hike them up high or you get pulling down (due to my quads pulling them down) and then you get the bunching in odd places. Hike them up all the way and adjust the material. Still I'd stay TTS in these and battle getting them on because once they are on and adjusted they fit right. Definitely do not size down in these. I'm less likely to keep these than I am the ones above because I find them really busy and again, I'd never wear them to crossfit and the are a little fancy with the mesh for day wear. Beautiful print though.
