Well it's easy to see that LLL 2016 is all about the Sports Bra. They have given us jackets, vests, l/s and s/s tops and tanks with holes, slits, armpits cut low and wide, very low draping and see through mesh that exposes the sports bra. Although some styles are alright, many IMO are simply lacking in design just so they can sell more sports bras and I am not buying into it. Many of these tanks with little to no fabric and design aren't worth the money and then the added cost of buying a sports bra to go with it because it's going to be seen. We are now paying a lot more money to outfit ourselves in workout gear that is lacking in design and detail but hey it's showing off a cute strappy colourful sports bra. I have been buying LLL for many years and what has always drawn me to their product has been their unique designs and detail and for that I was willing to pay the price. It certainly doesn't take much imagination and skill to come up with a s/s top with the entire back in see through mesh or tanks with gaping slits in the back. It wouldn't be so bad if I saw some well designed and detailed product that wasn't all about exposing the sports bra but that isin't the case.
They're too focused on trendy one-off pieces instead of making sure their core items are of excellent design and quality. I don't particularly care about all the tanks/tops that show off bras or have open backs, but the reality is that one only needs so many of those styles, and these styles quickly become passe. Open backs in non-athletic wear have already been a thing for a few years at this point.
Totally agree @6:23! I would love that top if it was not complete sheer mesh on the back. I don't even need to go into a LLL these days.
I completely agree anon 6:23 AM and 8:26 AM! So, so, so, tired of all the tops that are clearly designed solely to show off sports bras. Also tired of all the mesh on what seems like every single pair of crops and pants, but I've mentioned this tons of times already so I'll leave my rant on the mesh topic at that. Sure, a few tops designed to show off sports bras are fine, but ALL of them seem to be designed only for this reason these days.
I would really LOVE if they would bring back some of the tanks that were designed to be worn with the TaTa Tamer bras. I only wear TaTa Tamer bras and prefer to keep my cleavage and my bra covered up (even if I chose to wear a 'prettier' style of bra this would still be my preference!). Still love the classic CRBs and all the styles of Swiftly tops though, hopefully they'll all keep coming in lots of nice colours.
I'd love to try those shorts - but I'd be severely worried about the potential for swass marks 😂
I got those shorts and love them so! The material seems different thick and silky. I don't swear much( big prob for me) and never lower body or any that wets my clothes. Even running in 100 deg so can't answer to that.
Really love these pants and I'm ordering two more pairs today :) they aren't see through they are warm enough and don't slide down. I received these pattern leggings so quickly and the material is amazing.
