Why Lululemon

October 13, 2015

Back in 2012 I was really addicted to Anthropologie for clothing.  Sometimes I shopped at Zara and Free People too, but Anthropologie was my favorite.  I also started working out that year and got into the best shape of my life.

For workout clothes I just bought some cheap stuff from Target.  $20 crops and $15 sports bras.  Nothing fancy.  But then I started browsing at Victoria's Secret for their sports bras and yoga shorts.  To this day, I still prefer Angel by Victoria's Secret Sports Bra.  This is my favorite workout bra ever and hope they never discontinue it!


My introduction to Lululemon was very slow.  I'd seen the shopping bags all over the city being carried around by women everywhere.  My sister owned a hoodie that looked very nice on her and I liked how fitted it was.  Most of the hoodies I owned were very casual and loose fitting.

My first Lululemon purchase was actually a present for my sister.  I think I picked another hoodie or jacket.  It wasn't until early this year that I actually bought something for myself from Lululemon.  I ended up buying a pair of Wunder Unders in bordeaux cotton.

Now I actually don't wear too much Lululemon to work out in, even though that's what it's mainly intended for.  I pick the pieces that I can wear out casually.  But I do own a bunch of swiftly tanks that work double duty.  I also own some speed shorts that I do go running in.  I have a bunch of CRBs that I wear out but never workout in.  Wonder Unders, High Times pants and In the Flow Crops I wear out casually.  Apparently it's a trend called Athleisure wear.

Last time I went to Lululemon, I tried on the Fluffin Awesome Jacket and High Times pants and the combo is awesome.  They are both on my wish list.  I am hoping the high times pants go on WMTM because I can't justify spending $98 on those.



For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches on a good day, and weigh about 97 pounds.  I'm usually a size 4 in tanks and a 2 in hoodies and coats.  Pants I'm almost always a size 4 or a size 6.  Pictured here, the coat is a size 2 and the pants are a size 4.
