    I invite all women to talk about women's apparel in this thread. We can discuss current fashion, WTA tour, apparel carried by the Tennis Warehouse (fit, sizing...etc) We can even post photos if we like.

    I would start off by commenting on the Adidas Adilibra group. I love the cap sleeve and the skort, two thumbs up! Although the skort fit looser than other Adidas skort of the same size (ball would fall out), so ladies might wanna consider one size down when ordering.

    ^^^I think that was her (intended) 08 dress, only she never showed up to wear it.

    Funny, I find the Adilibria skorts to fit smaller than the other Adidas skorts!

    Yeah, she had modeled it before the '08 USO, and it looked really cute and flattering. I was disappointed not to see her play in it, as I had HATED her '07 dress, that awful orange-y red monstrosity.

    Yeah, it's great! I do wear tennis shorts underneath, of course. All the tennis skirts I'd tried just had too much going on--too much fabric, too many panels, etc. I like the single piece of stretchy fabric, no zippers, nothin'. Super simple! :)

    Changing the subject slightly but still about women's apparel - what do you think about the new adidas Barricades with the extra geometric patterns? I personally find it kind it kind of odd looking. At first when I saw it I was like, 'what is that?'

    I like them. I don't like the price tag, though!

    I generally would like to see women's shoes in more than just white and pink! For instance, the men got Black nikes with a red swoosh!! I want that!!!!

    But again, I do like the designs, too. Maybe I'll try to get some of those when they go on sale.

    I have had my eye on this outfit for a while...pretty basic Prince team stuff, but a few women were wearing it at districts this past weekend, and it looks really nice on. Anybody wear any Prince stuff? Any hints on sizing and how it compares to other brands (Nike, Adidas, Fila, Kswiss, etc)?

    Speaking of KSwiss, nice new stuff up! I really like how their designs have 'spruced up' in the past year or so...I have some KSwiss apparel and I love it. It works on and off the court.

    I tried on a Prince skirt/skort once, it fit kind of big compare to Nike/Adidas/Kswiss.

    What a great thread!
    Gocard - I really don't like the new barricades - why do we need naff patterns on the side?? I like the colours but not with the added detail!

    The most comfy skorts I have ever owned are made by Lotto, far better than my nike ones as the ball always falls out of the pocket!

    Da-ROOL! Do want! I like the basic-ness of the skirt + the fundamental simplicity YET mild sassiness of the top.

    I know, it looks like it may be real simple, but that top is very cool; and the whole outfit looks really sharp in person.

    It is officially on my 'want to buy' list. I wish TW did 'wishlists' so I could keep track of it all!

    Hi ladies! I was planning on featuring some of this KSwiss apparel in an upcoming vlog. It seems that you are really liking the styles, are there any in particular you'd like to see featured?

    Tiffani! I was kind of hoping you'd see this thread.

    Honestly, I love the look of the whole line with the exception of the cap sleeves (and it isn't like I dislike the cap sleeves, they just look pretty basic, which can be good).

    Personally, I'd love to see the dress and the colorblock/empire tank in the vlog...just to see how the length and the straps look on an actual person. I'm short, and I have strap issues at times. Thanks! Let us know if you need to fly out additional models...I'm sure you won't be short of volunteers! :)

    Topaz, thanks for the input! It won't be in the vlog that goes up today, but I'm planning on next week. I empathize with your strap issue as I'm also not exactly tall. I'll have to talk to Chris about a travel expense budget for models :).

    Great! I'll keep an eye out for it! Really appreciate that y'all started (and kept doing) a women's vlog!

    As far as the strap issue...I find that sometimes tanks will fit in the torso, but the straps are way too big (along with the whole arm opening area), but if I size down, then the straps are perfect but the torso...ahhh...not so much!

    Adjustable straps for the win!

    Nordstrom is currently having an anniversary sale, and they have a few Nike Tennis items on sale. I ended up buying the misses a few skorts.

    I like this skirt, because it is simple and I love the color. But I don't like the big hole in the back of the top. I'd have to look at the other cap sleeves or something else. But then, I don't usually wear tank tops anyway, so that's just me.

    Ok, I reallllly like the cut of the color block tank *and* I like the v-neck tank, too. And those colors are so pretty! Very nice...thanks for featuring those items Tiffany (and did you mean to color coordinate your outfit, too?).

    Hi everyone Im new to the messge board. I just wanted to thank TW for stocking Eliza Audley. My name is Sarah Im from Sydney Australia and have played tennis since I was a kid. I currently pla tennis 3 days a week and still get as much enjoyment out of the game as I ever have. I have been looking for a brand of tennis like Eliza for a long time. I really wanted chic, elegant and fashion orientated tennis apparel that wasnt coming from one of the big brands (nike, adidas, fila, reebok etc) and I have found that in Eliza Audley. I love the Pro Rose Collection and splurged on buying almost the whole collection. The quality is great and as I said the clothes are so pretty and feminine. I cant wait for the next collection "Deco Pearls".

    As I said earlier today Im so happy that TW is stocking Eliza Audney. I used to wear Nike (but so do many other people) so Im so glad I have found this brand that not many people know about because I love the idea of wering something a little more exclusive. Eliza Audley mixes practicality and fashion perfectly and thats why I have made the switch. I cant wait for the up and coming collections. As O also said I got quite excited when I saw the collection on TW that I bought so many pieces from the Pro Rose group. Here are the pieces I bought (I havent gotten any pix of me playing in them yet but stay tuned).

    Those Eliza Audley pieces are lovely but for that price I'd rather buy my girl a nice cocktail dress.

    Im really impressed with the new line of Reebok Apparel. The colours are amazing/vibrant and the designs very fresh. I believe this is the best collection Reebok have produced since their Venus days, I only wish Reebok had a better group of players to show them off. Hopefully Tiffani will do a vlog on the new Reebok line in the near future. I have told some of the girls at my club to chekc them out.Here are my 2 favourite pieces.

    Sarah, I agree, Reebok has really stepped it up lately...I loved their last collection, too.

    Crystal, I LOVE that tank...I've looked at it before. However, it is too much for me to justify on a tank, plus my size never seems to be in stock.
