Bliss Break Hoodie
New favorite item
I have a few cool racer backs, pants, and some bras, but this is the first lulu item that I actually love. I've started going to the gym right after work and I didn't want to put my work clothes back on after a workout. But I needed something to put over my tanktop and under my jacket in winter. This is perfect. It's thin and breathable, and actually comfortable. I'm 5'2" 34B and got my standard size 6, perfect fit.

Super Comfy Hoodie!!
I ordered this in the light grey color when it hit WMTM, as that is where I tend to shop. When I got it I wasn't particularly blown away, but then I tried it on...and have not really wanted to take it off since. The back vents are unnecessary, but also aren't an issue for me. The fit- I am 135 5'4" and a 34D. My normal 6 was a perfect fit and I can wear a long sleeved shirt under it, I would not size up on this. All in all it doesn't seem like anything special. Then I realized I wore it 6 days this week even though I have about 6 other lulu hoodies!!

Not that great
I don't find anything really exceptional about this. The quality is okay, the vents in the back are weird and seem to "buckle" out in an unflattering way, looking like the whole top is too small and yes I bought the correct size for myself. I just don't see any reason that this should be $70+ dollars...I dunno y'all, I think I may be moving on to bigger and better (non-LLL) things. Lately quality and design haven't been great and with the asinine comments made yesterday about "certain bodies aren't made to wear our clothes," I don't think I can support these guys anymore, don't wanna buy clothes that make me feel bad about myself.

FAVORITE LULU JACKET
I wear this jacket almost every day to work, it's perfect! I happened to get it when they offered heathered angel wing/soot lined hood. The vents in the back give it a nice edgy touch. You can dress it up or down, this is my go to jacket for everything. I favor it over the Scuba's, which I also have. If you're on the fence about this, BUY IT you can't go wrong!

frustratingly close to perfect
This would be the perfect light hoodie if not for three things.
First, I wear a hoodie for warmth, not for sweaty activities like working out or running, so really don't want a back vent. For air circulation, I'd rather just unzip the front. The fabric in the vents tends to pooch out when the jacket is zipped up, and doesn't look good.
Second, the tight fit in the arms makes this hoodie less versatile. It's fine over a lightweight workout top, but uncomfortable over a thicker long-sleeved tee.
Third, the French terry fabric feels a little less cushy than the French terry on a lulu hoodie I purchased last fall. I checked fabric content and it's different. The Bliss is 92% cotton/8% lycra, while last year's hoodie was 95%/5%. Surprisingly, that little difference is noticeable.
Despite all this I'm keeping the Bliss because the hood and upper neck fit perfectly, and the jacket looks fantastic from the front.

Cozy & flattering- Fit for all!
I love this hooded zip up for many reasons. It's definitely not fitted nor as thick as the scuba style but thats not a bad thing. I am very fit and lean, small waist (5', 110lbs, 32D chest, 24" waist, 33" hips) and bought this in a size 2. This hoodie has a cozy/baggy feel in the mid section & chest area and I have fallen in love with the comfort of this. Everything I own from LuLulemon tends to be fitted and tight which I love but its nice to also have a staple sweater you can throw on and not feel so confided in. I have muscular arms- biceps and shoulder and a wider back due to weight training and this fits snug in those places but not as tight as the scuba or forme jackets. There are pockets which is a nice convenience and I got this in "commuter denim slate/silver spoon" which is a lovely gray color and I get tons of compliments on it. A lot of my clients are pleasantly surprised when I say its Lululemon as its much different than their other styles of hoodies. Very nice quality, softness, & great length/fit!

The most comfortable sweater!
I recently freaked out when I was able to fit into Lulu tops! I have been working so hard to get there! This was my first shirt purchase at Lulu in addition to another jacket. This hoodie fits better that the scuba and is soft and comfortable. The detail on the sleeve adds a very artsy touch! The all the way zip up allows for a very cute neck detail and keeps you warm as you jet from class to class. I am an avid gym-goer and this has become my mainstay! It was a bit pricey in relation to the other jacket I bought, but totally worth it!

As soon as this came in I didn't want to take it off! True to size. Would recommend to anyone looking for a comfy hoodie. Probably my favorite lulu hoodie thus far. Better than the scuba in my opinion.

This sweatshirt is so comfortable and practical. I got tons of compliments on it, and my favorite part is how big the hood is!

Can't take it off...
Love this jacket! Great alternative to the Scuba. Warm, but ventilated in the back. Long arms and body length for the taller things in life ??
