The clever cookies at lululemon athletica are forever pushing boundaries with fabric technology and functional design to make our workout wardrobes work harder for us.
I don’t know about you, but I have several lulu pieces that are in constant high rotation. Because they fit great, feel great and do their job. They quickly become activewear essentials and I can’t get enough of them.
And as each week’s new drop hits the lulu stores and website, our choice of smart and chic activewear goodies grows and grows. They’re little miracle-workers, these Canadian cousins of ours, and I love them for it. Want to know what my new lululemon activewear essentials are? Here you go – just click on the coloured links to take you straight to the shopping pages. Happy days, lulu-lovers!
Here are my 7 new lululemon Activewear Essentials:
1. Final Lap Tank
This is so clever – a pocket in the racer back of this tank holds your phone! No more armbands that dig and slip and just generally annoy you when you’re running or working out. Genius.
2. Enlite Bra
I’m always ALWAYS on the look-out for great sports bras that you can buy by cup size. If you have big boobs, usually you need this to feel secure if you’re running and jumping around during your sweat sesh.
The lululemon Enlite Bra is comfy, let’s you move whilst being supported and gives a nice natural shape. I have one and I love it. Available in C-DD cups.
3. Scuba Hoodie IV
The Scuba is an old favourite of mine. It is soooo warm, perfect to take you to and from your workout in soft cosy style. This new version has an improved fit and is available in a range of the BEST black and grey hues.
Get one and you’ll be wearing it for years. Thumbholes are life!
4. Align Pant II
The Nulu fabric used to make Align yoga pants is soft like butter and really the ultimate in comfort for your class. You kind of have to feel it to believe it, so take yourself in store if you can, and grab a pair. You’ll probably end up rubbing it up and down your cheek, it’s that soft.
Great colours and a couple of different lengths available. I sized down with my pair upon recommendation, and they fit perfectly.
5. Final Lap Crop
These running crops look awesome. Not only do they have my fave feature, the thigh pocket for my phone, but also a zipper pocket, internal drawcord and no inside seams (no chaffing, hurrah).
Three awesome colours, I’m in love with the Midnight Navy. Could they be the perfect running crops?
6. Another Round Long-Sleeve Top
I’ve always been a Swiftly long-sleeve lover, and this top, with its scoop neck and longer length at the back in super soft pima cotton looks like the perfect layer to add to your winter workout ensemble. One of each colour, please, lulu.
7. Wunder Under High Rise in Nulux
Have you felt the Nulux fabric? It’s barely there but supportive enough to run and HIIT in, as well as down dog. These tights are the classic best-selling lululemon Wunder Unders constructed in this new amazing fabric, and with a high waist (in my opinion, high waist is the only waist) and ombre monochrome digital print. Awesome.
