Fit Review: Featherlight Prints|Dazzle, Iridescent |Sculpt Jacket|Sweater Print

Of all of the featherlight prints, this one was the least flattering for my body type. I think if you are tall and lean these are perfect but the light coloured bottom half of the leg wasn't flattering on me. The print itself I adore and I think the pants are gorgeous. I learned today that there are different weights of Nulux which is why these are listed as 50g Alpine White and priced higher for the same pant style as the others. The other prints that are also Nulux (but priced lower) are much more forgiving and thick than this Nulux. This Nulux feels more nakedy, less compressive and slightly sheer where as the other print in Nulux was not at all sheer. 


I am obsessed with this print to the extend that I want the WUP as well as the High Times. The print in person is very nuanced and has a lot of browns and mauves in it, not just black and grey. As I mentioned above, this print in Nulux is more forgiving to me in the sheerness department as well as in compression. My store didn't have the plume print in but I am anxious to find out if they are like these. 


The WUP is more compressive than the High Times even so if you are worried about Nulux (if you are in the upper sizes like me, and compression is a concern) these are the way to go.  A lot of people have mentioned this print looks like fish scales and I sort of agree, although I get more of a mermaid vibe from it. The browns and taupes in the print in person really make it less fish like.

I caved to peer pressure and purchased this In Sculpt Jacket from the sale. Carolyn from Lulu Addict has been really talking this jacket up and she's purchased a second one today on markdown. The thing she said that sold me was that it's a very comfortable jacket to put on post sweaty workout so that it keeps you warm without reheating you after you've cooled down. I think of the spacer fabric jackets, this one is the most flattering fit. This picture doesn't do it justice because the black one I ended up getting has a much more sleek fit on me.

My store had this new sweater print in. It's actually really pretty and I might consider a tank in this. I know it's coming in Fast And Free Tights which we saw in the Winter 2016 Lookbook back in October.

  1. Does anyone know if the City Bound Hoodie is TTS? I wear 6 in all Lulu items pretty much but reviews say to size down. I'm 5'11" 145 if that helps. Thank YOU for the help!

    1. I'm a size 6 in everything from Lulu, but I tried on a size 6 in the City Bound Hoodie, and it was huge around the waist on me. My store didn't have a size 4 to try, but I think I would have bought it if they had. :)

    2. Size down for sure in the city bound hoodie! I love the fit of it in my size down. TTS was overly boxy and sleeves way too long!

  2. Nulux iridescent looks like Werkshop mermaid scales in gold.

  3. Does the iridescent multi black print have any shine or shimmer to it?

  4. Christina, you must re-evaluate! I love the WUP Dazzle best on you - the ones with lighter bottom half. It could be one of those times when it's in your head to not buy something because of a preconceived notion that the item's not your body type, etc etc excuse, that you even look at your pics with those "goggles" on, and then later when you look at it more objectively you totally regret not getting it. They look beautiful on you (and it is the most beautiful print of the 3, imo) and no you don't look like you need that extra compression. Just sayin' Love your blog. Xoxo

    1. I was just about to make the same comment; I like the Dazzle best on you. It appears to have a slimming effect of your upper leg relative to the lighter portion on the lower leg. It's very flattering IMO.

    2. Thank you so much, guys! that is really kind of you. I had ordered them when they uploaded so I will try them on again when they arrive on Monday. Maybe trying them on with some of my workout tanks will change my mind.

  5. Agreed..I am thinking the light bottom of leg will look bigger than the darker part on thighs...at least that's what I'm hoping for me. I also agree that this is nicest of 3 prints...unique...and you are very fit and firm..not sure you need to worry too much about compression. But you have to feel good in them. I adore the sweater print with touches of colour in them....yikes I too would like tights in print....yikes I should be buying for everyone else not me

  7. I don't like the Dazzle print at all because I think they faded out the print too much on the calf. I would have liked the print much better had it extended all the way down the leg. My favourite is the plume print because it looks like light wispy feathers to me. I think the Insculpt jacket at $69. is a very good price for the jacket. I tried this jacket on but it didn't say Lululemon to me so I passed but I really liked the colour in your picture above.

  8. I think the top print is the most flattering on you the lighter bottoms bring the eye down and balances out the hip area making it appear slimmer.�� I think sometimes you have to look at some pieces from a distance.Thanks for the closeup view of the print I do like it but not enough to purchase.

    Haha I just read the other comments.

  9. LLL is the only vendor without an actual Black Friday promotion of any kind. Seriously.......

  10. I'm not a "naked" gal, so for me these prints are irrelevant though I appreciate your mention that the WUPHR are more compressive and thicker...still, not looking unless/until prints turn up in tight/hugged run/train gear. Lulu restocked online WMTM this morning and I picked up that InSculpt jacket, even though admittedly it hadn't appealed to me initially. It does have a "mod" look that is interesting...just not sure about the fit so I took a chance given the sale price was good. Thanks as always for the fit reviews Lulumum!

    1. I wasn't a fan of the In Sculpt Jacket when I did a fit review of it and really found it plain, boring and not super flattering on me because of the shape of the stiff spacer fabric. That being said, I took the tags off the one I got on Friday right away (very rare thing for me to do) and have been wearing it ever since. I've worn it around the house (keeps me warm without overheating and it's cozy), worn under my jacket (layers nicely, no hood to deal with) and I wore it to the gym and after my workout. I like it a whole lot but $69 was the right price for me.
