Lululemon Clothing Is Made Of Magic
If you've never put on a pair of Wunder Unders then I can understand why you would think paying $80 for a pair of spandex is completely ridiculous. But mark my words - go try on a pair and they will sell themselves right into your dresser drawer. I'm serious! I've never met anyone who owns Lululemon clothing who a) isn't completely obsessed and b) regularly buys any other brand of work out clothing now.
My first experience in a Lululemon store was much like the first time I laid eyes on Jesse McCartney in 5th grade. I saw, I felt (ok I didn't feel J.M., you guys) I salivated and immediately became obsessive. I knew there was no turning back once I did my first round of try-ons. The material was like nothing I had ever felt before - and I'm still not really even sure what exactly it is. But I'm ok with that. Because it is most likely made out of magic. All of their clothing is sweat-wicking so you're not disgusting by the end of your hard workout and it literally does not slip around or droop at the crotch or slip off your waist or awkwardly ride up AT ALL no matter the physical activity.
I think the biggest misconception about Lululemon is that women who don't really work out hard and just want to look good at the gym are the only happy customers. WRONG! First of all, I am not a gal who goes to the gym to look good. In fact, if I'm not dripping in sweat by the end of my workout/spin class then I don't feel like I worked hard enough. Even before turning in my huge, baggy T-shirts for colorful Lululemon Tees I couldn't have cared LESS about what I look like when I work out. I just want to be comfortable and not feel like I have to suck in while I'm dying on the stair master because we all know it's hard to double task. Second of all, I love that it's not too 'flashy.' Sometimes Nike gear gets to be a little much with the graphics/huge logo combo. The Lululemon logo is super discreet on all pieces of clothing which I absolutely love (and some items are reversible so you can't see the logo at all on one side). Heck, I've even got my boyfriend hooked! (wait what? I never said that Lane I swear...!) By the way, if you're actually paying $80 on spandex just to 'look good' or sport a label well then honey you've got a whole different type of problem.
The above articles of Lululemon clothing have become staples in my workout wardrobe. Not kidding - I probably own every color offered for each of them. Oh, and did I mention the Ta Ta Tamer II is probably the BEST sports bra I've ever owned?
Don't call me crazy until you've tried it out! Swear you'll be hooked. And if you're not, well, Jesse McCartney doesn't like you.
