Dear Lululemon

I used to love Lululemon. Like didn’t everyone? Amazing leggings, like first on the market that was like they are, the dominated!

But this was like.. 6-8 years ago, right?

Well… Now they kiiiiind of suck. But it’s not just a general hate, I kind of still love all my Lululemon clothes! Especially my scuba hoodie. Oh my god it’s my favourite. The sleeves are long enough for my crazy lanky limbs, and generally the bodies fit me with my long arms in proportion. (Except the scuba hoodie, I have the get the size up in order to fit my arms, whatever)

But their leggings… My old, and original LOVE for this brand.. Has just..  WTF?!

Why can I see my ass when I bend over now? I can clearly see the tag through the fabric, and my underwear (and my wonderful full moon lol) whereas my first couple pairs of their leggings (Wunder under to be specific, some of my lounge pants are still VERY opaque thankfully. But they’re old so thats the difference.)

And these are new. Like I just bought them and got them for christmas new.

What happened to your quality of totally opaque leggings? And you can’t use that excuse that my ass is too big or that girls my size shouldn’t be wearing them. I take a size 6 in your pants. Thats right. The girls working there told me that the 8’s I tried on were too big because they were a bit wrinkly and honestly if I jumped the waistband would probably shift down a bit. ALSO.. I have shorts in a size 6 that are perfect and opaque and lovely, AND crops that are the same way. No full moon showing through to onlookers.

So now.. I have a pair of over-priced leggings (that I really want to love, and I’ll still probably wear them out, but… be super self conscious of my exposed bottom) that are a bit see through. How am I expected to do squats or downward dog in these Yoga pants without people seeing my skin through them?

I think I’m officially converted to Victoria’s Secret for their workout clothes. It’s way cheaper, (My boobs don’t jiggly when I jump, holla!) aaaaaand their leggings are totally opaque. Like bend over in florescent lighting and still not see your bright pink cheeky panties through them. YEAH.

Plus, you know, their waistband comes up to my belly button and help keeps everything smooth. (not that I REALLY need it, but it’s nice to have IMO.)

So maybe I’ll buy another lulu hoodie, or yoga mat (cuz they’re supposed to be the stickiest!) but maybe I’ll save the extra 30$ and get my leggings elsewhere.

I hope they keep me warm while I’m skiing!

Sincerely,

An old fan that’s mad that you changed your fabric but kept the price ridiculously high.

Forgotten Favourite

I probably should have mentioned when I did my fav list… Something I use almost every single day.

My Victoria’s Secret leggings.

Well, technically they’re “Knockout Tights”, but DAMN they are the best leggings I’ve ever worn.

And that’s a big statement. I wear them way too often.

Yes. Better than Lululemon. Cheaper than Lululemon.
(Cough cough* Not see-through like lululemon *Cough cough)

The comfortably com up to my belly button without giving me any kind of muffing top. It actually smoothes out all my wrinkly bits.
(Yes, for those of you that know me, I’m a tall and skinny human, but I still get wrinkly bits you know!! Particularly my lower back. I have very high hip bones!)

So those are come pretty big statements. And I love these. I’m actually wearing them right now.

So if you live near a Victoria’s Secret and you want a new pair of leggings… Go get some knockout tights.

And if you’re tall and you’re like “OH they won’t fit me, I’m too tall”, that won’t work here sweetie. I’m 5’10 and I’m mostly leg. My inseam is a 35 I think? Yes, I’m a freak.

If models can wear them then so can you. Unless you’re the size of a 12 year old.. Cuz they don’t go that small.
