Fitness Friday – 1st Lululemon Purchase
If you followed my last blog, you know I love lucy activewear. The fits are great. The fabrics are great. It all washes so well. But…I feel like I have been disloyal to lucy. Last weekend, I purchased my first products from lululemon.
I love working out, so purchasing workout clothes that last are important to me. So I stopped in their store to try some things out. First, I wanted to see how the pants fit. I am very picky on my workout pants. The waistband can’t be too tight and the overall fit has to be somewhat on the more snug side. Why? There is nothing that annoys me more than when I’m doing box jumps, for instance, and my pants start falling down. And of course fabric. It can’t be too thick and not too thin (don’t want anything showing through!).
So I tried on the Astro pant and the Groove pant, both in a size 6. They said the size 6 was like a small. The Groove pant felt nice on, but had a pretty wide leg at the bottom. One nice feature – it was reversible! Also, the waistband was straight across. But, I chose the Astro pant. The leg wasn’t as wide at the bottom, which I think made my legs look thinner and more toned. I also fell in love with the waistband. It is a V-shape and super flattering. The waistband is so comfortable. If you are around a lululemon store, try these pants on. You’ll understand what I mean.
The sales associate informed me that even though their sports bras might not have pads in them, they can put them in there if you want for free. So…I asked them to do this on this one I bought on sale. I love the color – and the back. It’s not supportive enough for me to go running in, but lifting weights, absolutely. I went with a size 8, since the girls need some room to breathe. 🙂
See what you think about my new purchases. Are you loyal to one brand? Or do you like to mix everything up?
