Fit Review Friday! Train Times Crop, Breeze By Muscle Tank II, Long Distance Tank, Speed Short Aerial Drift + ZARA

May 26, 2017



Happy Friday everyone! Today was a half day for me since it's Memorial Day Weekend. Hope you all have something fun planned! I was outta my chair at noon and walked over to the mall to see what was new. I found the Long Distance Tank on markdown in a size 2 and a 4 just to see which one fit me better.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in tops and bottoms.


The size 2 was a little too fitted for my tastes around the waist and hip, so I found the size 4 to be more comfortable. The fabric is seriously light luon and also very thin, so if it's too tight it will definitely show lumps and bumps. I would definitely stick to your regular size in this tank. 


I didn't think to wear a sports bra, normally I do when I know I'm going to Lululemon, but I've been so scatterbrained lately. I ended up passing on the tank even though I really loved the heathered marvel color. 



 Next up, I grabbed the Train Times Crop to try on. I love wee are from space and these crops are very soft full on luxtreme fabric. These crops are high waisted but still sit right underneath my belly button. The waistband is snug, but comfortable. There is a hidden drawstring on the inside of the waistband.



The length of these crops are 17 inches and they hit just at the bottom of my calves and are super fitted and not loose at all. I think these are super flattering even for petite gals like myself. The mesh detail at the side of the leg is a nice touch. I don't mind a little bit of mesh. 


These are not 100% opaque, so nude underwear would be best. I took these home with me and I can't wait to try them out! For $88 I think they're a good buy. These will easily be a pair of crops that I will reach for often.


So last time I went to the mall, the dark mystic Speed Shorts in size 4 were very tight on me. This week I grabbed a size 4 in aerial drift and a size 6 in dark mystic to see. The size 4 in aerial drift fit like my old Speeds. The size 6 in dark mystic was way too big. It was loose all around the waist band and the lining was also very loose. 


With the inconsistency of the sizes, I wouldn't recommend buying Speed Shorts online. I would stick to trying them on at the store. If there are no Lululemon stores near you, I would order multiple pairs of the same size and then return the ones that do not fit in the mail. Definitely a pain, but if there's a print you absolutely have to have, then it's worth it to get the right fit.


I was curious about the Breeze By Muscle Tank and the smallest size seems to be a size 4. This tank is made for running and this will definitely keep you cool. The fabric reminded me of Swiftly material. The arm holes are super dropped and will expose your sports bra and your ribs. 



I think the price is a little steep at $58, but if I were to see this on WMTM, I would definitely snag one then. Even though it's a loose fitting tank, I would stick to your regular size. Overall it's a cute tank, just a bit too pricey.



I also decided to drop by Zara to look for some work clothes. I kinda dig this faux leather jacket. It's only 39.99!


My friend says the draped front is a little dated. Do you agree? For $39.99 I think it would be a great piece to wear around the office. I also liked this vest, but wasn't sure if it looked too overwhelming on my petite frame. 


The fabric was mid weight and thick. I think if I were just a bit taller, I would have bought this. And then I'd have to make a point of really working out my arms. 😂



I have tons of reviews coming up for you guys. This weekend I'll be taking tons of photos. Lots of Lululemon, Athleta, Nike, Uggs, Banana Republic, Gucci, and Werkshop! That's all for me! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!

  2. Congrats on snagging the train crops! I want to get them too and trying to convince myself that the wee space pace rivals design is different from the train crops as its the same colour :P

    1. Pace Rivals don't fit me as well as these do. I think the Pace Rivals are still a bit big around my calves which is why I don't have a pair of those!

  4. I like the vest but not the draped front jacket as much. But I'm a sucker and always buy things because of the deal and then have it hanging in my closet. Looking forward to your reviews!!

    1. Haha, I am the same way, but I'm trying to be better about my purchases lately. Taking modeling photos help me a lot when deciding what to keep!
