Lululemon, Covent Garden

The past few years I've been hearing great things about the Canadian sports- and yoga-wear brand Lululemon. But I've been hearing one thing that really made me want to try out this brand: pockets. It seems to be an impossible mission to find work-out/running bottoms which have good pockets. I need a pocket for my iPod, keys and also preferably a pocket which fits my phone. So often I find nice work-out leggings, but they have zero pockets which is so inconvenient (I only make exceptions for really cool ones). 

Luckily, the new store in Covent Garden has just opened, and I couldn't wait to have a look and try on some new things. There's up-beat music, a positive vibe and a girl doing complicated yoga poses in the shop window which seems to attract a lot of attention! There were endless racks of bright tops, sports bras, shorts, cute tennis skirts and a whole section dedicated to just bottoms. And there's also a men's section.

I'm on the hunt for the perfect long tights, which have enough pockets, which has a thick material so I don't have to worry about underwear lines and it needs to have some good pockets. And it has to be very flattering of course. I tried on some Lululemon tights and I can say that they were super comfy, flattering and had some great pockets. They are quite pricey, so maybe I'll treat myself in one month after submitting my dissertation?

I really liked the seams on these, they were really flattering. The side pockets are just perfect for an iPod, bank/ID card or some tissues.

These leggings also had one back pocket with zip (I think it could fit an iPhone but I didn't try), two side pockets on the legs and two mini hidden pockets in the waistband. 5 pockets!! If you're wondering, they are called Speed Tight Full-On Extreme.

I wasn't allowed to take pictures of the shop inside so you'll have to see it for yourself. I made a little selection of my favourite items:

Have you tried anything from Lululemon? I'm so glad this brand has crossed the pond (there's also an online shop!), we don't have enough cool sports brands over here!
