In talking to the lululemon rep, I resonated with the lululemon philosophy of community. The brand wants to be involved and supportive with local athletes and citizens. lululemon encourages people to stop by the showroom (note, it is not called a store) and engage with others over a cup of coffee or during a class.
Let me start off with the Run:Swiftly Tech tee in grey. Only recently in my fitness career, have I begun to appreciate technical material and fabrics. I loathe cotton. The lululemon tee is knitted with Silverscent™ and soooo soft! I would sleep in it if I could (I guess I could but it would seem a waste). It was very comfortable to run and spin in. The silver in the material help prevent odor and and static. The lululemon logo is worked into the material on front with a different seam. For my body shape, it was seemed to draw my eye to my waist, but I might be the only person who noticed.

The 50 Rep Bra was a little small for me but never made any marks on my skin. It held my 'kids' in just fine during activity and had a V neck cut in front to flatter all top styles. The tag on the bra seemed overly long, but I just cut it off. It was made of luon® fabric and had built in pockets in the bra cup for those who want a little extra va-va-voom at the gym.
Overall, I am very pleased with lululemon's products. I look forward to popping over to the store and meeting other fitness enthusiasts. If you are a lululemon yoga clothes fan, I suggest branching out to their running kit.
lululemon did not pay me for this review. They graciously sent me these products and all opinions are honest and my own. If you have a product you would like me to review, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
