I think these are fantastic tips! Whilst I haven’t ventured into Lulû since wayyyy pre-covid, everything you’ve mentioned Tas is pretty much how I handled things back in the day. I love their leggings, the compression in them helps my legs like no other.

Little update—went today and was able to get a small amount of goodies (not nearly the amount I got pre-COVID), but I think I just need to ease myself back into it. At the store I went to they are using baskets instead of shopper bags and if you position the basket just right, it can be very useful ;-)

Hey there! I would assume you’re planning a stop @ vś?? Okay, well if so...it all depends on how attentive the SA’s are AND how busy the store is. If they’re busy & distracted, that works in your favor—make sure & load the shopper bag up with a couple pairs of black colored leggings (as a decoy & also to cover up the bras you want) and also a decoy bra or two to mix into the actual bras you want. It helps to have your decoy bras either a similar in color to the bras you’re wanting as well. Also you’ll need a hook and/or a magnet depending on if they have supertags or pencil tags. Good luck!

It still wouldn’t work (putting a light in your purse). The moment the cube gets jostled around, it will beep—not to mention it will make the towers @ the door go off. The tags are extremely sensitive to the touch as well (they’ll start beeping like crazy if you try to take them off—I tried to peel one from a perfume once—since the cubes are stickers on the back & it went nuts beeping the second I applied any pressure to it ).

Take it from me, I have some experience with them—as I said before, unless you have the deactivator device, you should focus your attention onto something else.

A partner can be a fantastic asset, however only if they’re as skilled as you are & the two of you have a mutual trust and respect for one another.

Ok actually what I usually do is grab a shopper bag right from the store. They are usually sitting in the middle area, they change them up throughout the year to match the seasons, they are decent reusable bags, able to hold 5-6 books & maybe more, depending on what all you’re interested in. If they do NOT have the bags available, a good rule of thumb to remember is that most malls have a GNC store inside—I bring one with me whenever I go lifting—anywho, either of these bags will do just fine. RE: obtaining the bñ bag...I scoop one up (making sure it’s not in front of any SA’s, etc) & hang it on the same arm as my purse and it gives off a “hidden in plain sight vibe”. Plus when you leave it looks like you just added the bag into your “purchase” if that makes sense. RE: book bags, they could work however I’ve never personally gone that route, but I know many others have had great luck w/that method

Here’s how I do b& Ń: gather up the books I want plus a couple decoys. In every b&Ñ I have lifted from, the area with the least amount of cams is the children’s book section. I mosey over there, check my books for RFIDs & then drop them into a shopping bag I have with me. Also make sure to check the stickers etc that may be on the books, sometimes they also contain RFID’s. After I’ve concealed & make sure I haven’t been made, I put the decoys down and make my way out of the store. All in all it’s pretty easy for me personally however as with everything, it depends on the SA’s & your location.

Another thing that people forget is that these billion dollar companies are insured through the teeth for loss/shrink. So the whole “lifting hurts employees” shit is just a bunch of anti-lifter nonsense.

To answer your question, I also worked a few retail jobs and never once was punished over theft.

All depends on the timing, the SA’s & your method. I do a lot of reading & research (including the dreaded r/LP sub) and it can be done...just takes a bit of finessing & feeling out your surroundings
