I must confess. I bought my first Lululemon piece at the first of September. I am now up to 12 pieces. Please, do not do the math. Although about
On my way to Colorado Springs last week I stopped at a mall about one hour north at the Lululemon store and later in Colorado Springs I went to the showroom (smaller and only open limited hours). A few weeks ago I had tried on this little number here:
Run: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve
Since then I dreamed of it. The soft fabric and the sleeves long enough to go over my thumbs without stretching. The flattering fit! I couldn't resist and knew that I had to have it!
I bought it on the way to run the Manitou Incline and wore it within the hour. I felt like a better athlete just wearing it - but would it be comfortable? Would it bug me during the run, get soaking wet with sweat? Here came the real test! (Yeah, my car was a mess!)
Like most Lululemon products it was ALL that and more! It was very comfortable and kept me at a perfect temperature. It felt soft! I don't have very many long sleeve shirts because tech running shirts tend to be scratchy or too silky. This shirt did not give me that "cold silky" feeling that some shirts do. It rained on the way up and the shirt dried quickly, I never felt soggy and in the end it didn't smell either!
After I got to the top AND ran down, it still felt great.
If you are looking for a comfortable long sleeve and are ready to invest in a great piece of clothing then I would definitely try this on and consider buying it. Price: $68.00
You can get them online with free shipping or go to the store if you have one nearby. There is always a much bigger selection at a store. I bought a size 10 which fit me perfectly. That is my usual size in shirts, but in long sleeves I usually have to go up a size for my ape arms. Not with this shirt.
why we made this
After I realized I had to come home early because of the flu - I wore this the first day of my drive. I hadn't washed it. I also hadn't spilled anything on it, but it didn't smell at all. It's so comfortable I want to wear it every day. Now THAT is my kinda shirt!
Please be aware that there is a Lululemon outlet website that looks just like Lululemon but is not associated with the company. It has been reported to their attorneys - but don't order from there. The shipping is 25.00 flat and they either don't ever send you anything or send you an inferior product.
