Fit Review Friday! Cool Racerback Nulu Race Length Diamond Dye & Ready To Rulu 7/8 Jogger

Happy Friday! First week of January is over, and what a week it was. I've got a couple of new items for review. One of them is by request. Hope you enjoy reading and let me know what you think!

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


Diamond Dye Graphite Gray Size 6


I'm normally a size 4 in tanks but for the Cool Racerback I like to size up to a 6 because of how fitted it is. The fabric is the buttery Nulu which I personally love. I've never tried the race length before in any of Lululemon's tops and I am loving it! Normally the CRB is super long on me. If you're interested to see the difference in length, I have a review of the regular CRB here. It is really long on me.


I think it's the perfect length. The length measures 19 inches from the top to bottom. Definitely a keeper and I think if you're petite, give it a try! Price is a somewhat reasonable at $48. I wish I had snagged this on sale like some of you. 


Next up we have the Ready To Rulu 7/8 Jogger which was requested. They're currently out of stock. I managed to snag one- likely a return one early morning when I was randomly checking the app. I ordered my regular size 4. 

Ready To Rulu 7/8 Jogger Graphite Gray Size 4
(Currently Out of Stock)


Let's go over some numbers first. These are high-rise and the rise measures about 9.5 inches. The inseam on the size 4 measures 27.5 inches. The cuff at the ankle measures 4.75 inches across. The fabric is Rulu and it feels very soft. It also has a brushed feel. These are mid weight joggers and perfect for fall/winter temperatures. There's a drawstring at the waist to get the perfect fit. I would say these are true to size. 



The length is actually okay, which is surprising. I would say these are petite friendly, I just wish the leg was a little more tapered towards the ankle. The extra fabric above the cuff could possibly be taken in if you find a good tailor. I ended up sending these back though. I definitely prefer the fit of my Vuori joggers.

(I have a review of these coming up soon.)


That's it for me! Hope everyone has a great weekend. 😊

  1. Happy Friday! I was super curious about the RTR 7/8 but too bad the ankles are loose! My Scuba joggers are loose at the ankles too and bunches up but I still like them. Definitely would be so much more flattering in petite sizing. I think diamond dye is so pretty! Now that I've gotten a few colored DD pieces on sale I wish I got the graphite gray diamond dye too

    1. I've always been a fan of diamond dye. I have I think 4 pieces in different color ways. Maybe 2021 Lulu will bring on Asia fit to the US!

  2. Thank you for the fit review! The R2R 7/8 has potential. Is it as think as the Scuba Jogger? I have the Scuba Jogger, which is a bit long but perfect for the New England winter and I live in it. The CRB racer length fits beautifully on you. I have to wait for a markdown. The Rothy's Lace Up sneakers look so cool. I can't wait for your review, but my wallet says no rush lol.

    1. The joggers definitely has potential. I would say the Scuba is probably cozier just because it has the fleece lining.

      I was surprised at how much I like the Rothy's Lace Ups and surprisingly comfy!

  3. Thank you for the fit review. Are those the full length R2R? Do you remember I asked if you about another style of jogger but now i can't seem to find them on the website. they kinda looked ruched on the sides of the bottoms. maybe they sold out??

    1. Yes I have the Beyond The Studio 7/8 Jogger in my cart! I haven't placed an order yet. But will soon.

  5. The top part of the jogger fits beautifully but sadly the bottom is a tad wide and the cuff too loose. Would’ve been perfect if the shape tapers towards the cuff.

    I love Diamond Dye Prints and have three pairs of bottoms in different color combo. The Cool Racerback Tank in racer length looks amazing on you and the length is perfect! I do yoga and prefer the length to be longer, but the original Cool Racerback is a bit too long for my liking. :(

    1. Yes, I'm always disappointed with Lulu joggers. They never work out for me.

      Love the CRB, now I know to aim for the race length. The original is too long on me too. Maybe have them hemmed?

  6. hi Leslie! The Racelength CRB looks great on you! I agree that the Vuori joggers fit you better than the RTR 7/8. Oh, by the way, I read on reddit today that the chambray RTR 7/8 has a tighter cuff than the graphite grey. The cuff of the chambray pair is similar to full-length RTR. Here's the post:

    I don't think chambray will work for me, but perhaps others are interested! Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks Karen for the link! Good to know about the Chambray. I will probably just stick to my Vuori joggers though, they have a nice blue that looks a little like chambray as well.

    2. wow! So many colour options in the US! In Canada, I've only seen black, camo and grey. That's probably good for my wallet though =)

    3. Sometimes when there's too many color choices, I just can't decide!
