Fit Review: Lululemon In Your Court Dress

FINALLY. I have been sitting on these photos for three WEEKS waiting for this dress to upload. When I was doing my usual lulu tourism bit at Ponce City Market in Atlanta, GA in mid-April, I found this cute little tennis getup, lululemon’s In Your Court Dress. I figured it would drop immediately on the heels of its tank top friend, the Swiftly Speed Sleeveless Henley, but no. Here we are a solid 3 weeks later.

While the white henley tank is still going for $64, the colors made their debut on WMTM last Thursday. (Hyacinth & True Navy are $49, if you’re interested.) {Fitting Room}

Lululemon In Your Court Dress ($118) in white

Note: I am 5’9″ and wearing size 10.

Fit & Length

Given how slim the henley tank fit and how there was a straight skirt involved, I went with the bigger of my two sizes (size 10 on the bottom) to accommodate the junk in the trunk. I’m glad that I did.

The neck hole felt slightly more accommodating than the tank, and the back is less of a racerback style. I liked the top half of the dress more than I liked the henley. As for the bottom, I’m not sure I’d actually want to play any sports in this dress. There’s no shorts or lining, so if you bend at all the goods are going to be on display without BYO booty shorts.

The Fabric

In as few words as possible, it’s a Swiftly tech dress. That means, it’s a thin fabric and not too much is left to the imagination. You’ll have to wear seamless nude-colored undergarments under this dress, or else the world will know what the color of the day is.

Great for when it’s super sweaty out? I suppose, but the shadows with the white simply aren’t doing a girl any favors.

Verdict

Did I buy it or did I not? Oh I most certainly did not buy this dress. As much as I love lulu I must advise to save your money.

Want to know what I DID buy? A gin/lime/rosewater slushie. While the In Your Court Dress fell short, the afternoon spent at Ponce City Market was most certainly not a waste. I drank a good drink and then may or may not have spent $100 at Anthropologie on new earrings an hour later.

  1. Girl, your bod is banging, but that dress is a loser. It’s an interesting idea, but the execution is really poor. Blech.
