I, like many of you, thoroughly enjoy Lululemon. Their products' fabrics, sewing, versatility, and long-last wear have past lead me to purchase several items over the year.
A brief sampling:
Several of these products as well as those not listed have lasted me not months but years! That's a tall order in the fitness industry! With stretch fabrics like spandex and nylon, it's tough to get a good pair of running crops to last a year without either stretching out or falling apart due to shotty sewing. Not with Lulu's, no sir.
I digress. My past several months have filled with more of a running schedule than a gym schedule, largely due to my somewhat healing piriformis syndrome and definitely healing GI issues. My running wardrobe, however, left much to be desired. My shorts were boring and slouchy. The warmer temps left running crops out of the question. What was a girl to do??
Don't you LOVE??? OK, I know what you're thinking and believe me, I can respond:
1: No they're not as tiny or tight as they look. They're just right on me and I'm on the taller side of the scale. The waist band feels non-existent. The moisture-wicking, light-feeling fabric keeps me cool. There's even that oh-so-handy zipper pouch in the back of the waistband to fit a car key or phone.
2: Yes, I know they seem pricey. But to be honest, a normal pair of running shorts (that fill the 4th drawer down in my dresser) are priced between $30-$40. None can compete with the Run: Speed Short in comfort, style, wear- ability, fabric, and quality. I'd probably replace those cheaper shorts 3x more frequently than the Lulu's. Let's face it, I saved money!! Right?
3. No, they don't ride up. They don't move. No chaffing. No slouching. It's seriously like they're not even there. Did I say that already?
Have I proven my point? One special shout out to my sis-in-law, Jamie, for gifting me a $25 Lulu gift card for my BDay. Thus, giving me all the more reason to shop till I drop!!
** Nope, Lululemon has no clue that I just spent a good 20 minutes gushing about their amazing products. No sponsorships needed! Pro-bono props!**
