O get over yourself. The stores are filled with hot girls and they have nice men's stuff.

Eh. I would prefer not to.

FWIW, I have some of it, and a few other brands, for Bikram yoga classes. The room is heated to 105 degrees so comfort, wicking etc is a major issue, and of all the clothes I have, I like the lulu stuff the best. I was a bit averse to the brand at first, but after 90 minutes in 105 degree heat I don't give a shit if it's a bit girly.

It's stupid. My shorts and shirts are beat up, sweated in, and washed once a week. I have five pair of everything I wear, because that's how many times I work out every week. It all gets washed hot and dried hot once a week too, so it doesn't smell. It takes a beating. There is no way you could convince me that an $80 pair of polyester shorts is somehow any better at dealing with this kind of treatment than the $10 pair of shorts I bought from Target. If I were to replace everything with stuff from lulu to last me a week, I'd be looking at something like $500+ for new stuff. That's a gym membership for two years.

This is so wrong I don't even know where to start. If you're worried about keeping yourself cool during hot yoga, you shouldn't be wearing lulu anything, as they don't make any true compression gear. This kind of clothing is the absolute best way to keep yourself cool because of the way the fabric, being so close and tight against your skin, brings all of the moisture to the surface, allowing it to dry faster, which is what actually cools you off. A simple $20 lycra singlet would do better than anything you could buy from lulu.

lululemon.com has an online store. Free shipping to any US address I think. You can take whatever you have ordered to a store for free alteration (or she can if you don't want to go in...).

I am a fan of their workout gear - impressed with their fit, durability, and quality. However, I have to say - some are too brightly colored for me.

It's not about staying cool (which kind of defeats the purpose of hot yoga), it's about how the garment responds when it is completely drenched. Some get heavy and sag, some get clingy, making certain postures awkward. Yes, a lycra singlet might be the best option, but I don't find them particularly discreet.

I guess yes. I have lululemon jacket on from them.

I've owned 2 shirts for nearly 10 years, and a couple of more items for slightly less time. The first two are still my favourite workout shirts. The wife has tonnes of clothing from them - extremely comfortable and resilient. Great fit (I hate clingy clothes) and each has proven resilient to hundreds of washings by now. Lulu offers tonnes of plain styles for those of us more conservative in their gym garb too. Just tell the SA what you want and they will accommodate.

uh, stupid spammer bump. anyway, just wanted to say that I've got about 7 workout shirts from Nike, to Underarmour and then generic wicking marathon shirts and my Lululemon shirt and shorts still look great and have such a good cut I always feel really good working out in them. So are they pricey, yeah, but IMO worth it. Buy less and wash more.
