by WCSunshine SURPRISE FIT! Yahoo Lulu (finally)
Ok, to previous post, yes these fit differently from the typical 'super tight, super heavy, kinda short-waisted' style that I've come to HATE. So I stopped buying 5 years ago. My usual size 8 started shrinking and getting heavy. This hoodie has now been improved!
Then came this new Script Ghost print I HAD TO HAVE. I took a chance and its paid off. Got my usual size 8 & Hallejulah LLL - you've listened apparently - b/c:
1. It's soft and not ridiculously so thick that it shames my somewhat curvy bod
2. It has a proper length that doesn't favour one lovely womans' height over another
3. The hood doesn't feel like an anchor
So now; I implore you people at LLL, stop here, stop now. Don't change it. Look at this one right now and go from here. Not sure why there's a Scuba 3, maybe it's great for some ladies, but for me, and maybe legions of others, with this Scuba 2 as I have just purchased - Don't Change It. Keep it and just work on more fabulous colours & prints, this one is perfection. Thx xo

Rated 5 out of 5 by yinnie Beware of Size Change!
I have 3 of these and they are so warm and comfy. I have 2 bought in spring and summer of 2015 in size 6 (reference I am 5'8 125lb) because size 4 was way tight and I wanted to be able to layer underneath. I just went to the store and bought a size 4 of the utterfly texture mink berry black/black colored one. I tried on the size 6, it was WAY loose. So I tried on size 4 and it fit like previous size 6. The educator there said they did "listen" to feedback and updated the size. By now, I feel like people are used to upsizing for jackets and this will just add more confusion. It would be nice to have some indication online which one's size have been updated.

got this sweater as a gift for my birthday in April in black. the colour is already so faded. i have only worn it a handful of times and followed the washing directions. very disappointing that a sweater this expensive fades so quickly.

I really wanted the black hoodie with a gold zipper... to bad it showed up with a cruddy black zipper. Returning it, and consistently losing faith in you LLL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lugirlfan I have 5 of these...
I love them so much I have 5 of them in different colors. Depending on the color, they can pass for something I wear at work or just out and about. They are soft, warm, and so very comfortable. I'm 5'8" tall and 155 lbs athletic build. I normally wear size 8 Lulu's but have all of these in size 10 since I like a little roomier fit, but even with the 10 I wouldn't call these loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by michiu Beware: It does stretch out
I have many scubas from ten years ago to now. I love the thick cotton back then and the mix of ribbed sides and thick cotton now. The only thing is that the sweat shirt does stretch out. And depending on the color there is a tad difference in tightness in size. I have stuck with my usual size 4 (113lbs, 34B, 5'2). So if you are inbtn sizes, just letting you know that it does stretch out so it's a tad roomier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yogajunkie27 Comfort and quality
I haven't had this hoodie for long, so I cannot comment on longevity. However, the material feels of a high quality, thick and resistant to stretching. The stitching is very even, no loose threads. I think the best part about this hoodie is the fit. I was a swimmer in my youth and have broader shoulders than your average female (for that reason, I sized up to a 10 rather than my usual 8 for tops). It is still snug, but fits exactly how I want it too. The thing I love most about it is that unlike a typical raglan sleeve sweatshirt that you might get at another retailer, Lulu used an extra seam across the top of the shoulder to still give the raglan look and fit but with a slimmer arm than you would usually get. That gives it a much more modern and feminine feel, and keeps it slim to wear by itself or under another jacket in the dead of winter, without getting too bulky. I am very pleased with this product and will likely order in other colors in the future.

Love the Scuba Hoodie ii, but my Heathered Jewelled Magenta looks a lot more heathered than it should :( I maybe washed and worn it 5 times since Christmas (when I got it) and now I'm afraid to wear it in case I get something on it and have to wash it again..
Hopefully my other 3 don't end up this way.

This is heavier than a jacket but much lighter than a coat. Can be thrown with any outfit. The lining is soft and the shape of the jacket is flattering. I don't feel restricted in this style at all, it moves with me. I've got a few in my collection; Scuba's will always be a staple in my wardrobe!

I never wrote a review when I first got my scuba hoodie, so I figured that I'd write one now. I've had my same scuba hoodie that I wear at least once a week since 2010 and it is still in the same shape as it was the day I bought it. I love this hoodie and would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a good quality and warm hoodie for all around use.
