There are two kinds of runners in this world. First, there are those who throw on a hole-y shirt from high school, a pair of 5-year-old running shorts and call it a day. And then there's the other kind who actually care what they look like when they run and welcome ridiculous, albeit, cute athletic-clothing trends like this latest piece from Lululemon— the runsie. Yep, Lululemon created a onsie for running in. Hey, whatever gets you moving!
So, what exactly is the runsie? It's exactly what it sounds like. It's a onesie specially crafted for runners. Just like any other piece of activewear from Lululemon, this one-piece is made with sweat-wicking, breathable and stretchy light fabric. It's also lined with a material that helps "keep things from riding up" and has pockets to store your keys, phone, etc. The back is open, so you can show off your sports bra, while keeping cool on your run. And in addition to an all black version, it also comes in a fun, floral-print.
And the reviews are in. Although you might think that running in a romper seems silly, the runsie actually has customers raving. One women left a review, saying, "I purchased the floral Runsie in store last week and put it to the test for my long run-9 miles total! In TX heat right now, I normally sweat like a pig but with the Runsie I always felt cool!"
Ahh, so it's not just cute — it's actually functional. "I bought this product just last week for running. I actually wore it to climb in and let me tell you...I felt like a million bucks!," said another. Other customers asked Lululemon to make the runsie in different colors and prints. Overall, everyone really loves their new running romper.
Alright, Lululemon. Things might still be a little complicated on the business side of things over there, but you're slowly winning us back with adorable and innovative activewear. Now if only you made them in more affordable prices. Fingers crossed.
