Scuba Hoodie II
I love this hoodie! If I could afford it, I would own one in every color. The only downside to this is the length of the sleeves, but I'm tiny (4'11") so it is to be expected.

love the fit of this scuba!!!
So I have had a lot of scubas? I started with the stretch version, thought they were great (but maybe a little too short) and bought a bunch of those. I bought a few of the II version back in December, and the fit of this scuba is absolutely perfect on me!! I always wear a size 6 top in lulu (5'7" 130lbs 34C) and I have this version in a 6 and 8. The 6 is much more fitted and it's a bit shorter, but fun for a more sporty type look. However I get mostly 8's in these jackets and they fit fabulous. Comfy but not frumpy, relaxed but still flattering. Makes a bun and no makeup day look good! :) This round I bought 2 of these?. with the intent to send one back. I got the light pink heather one with the grey sleeves and it's by far the CUTEST one I have!! Adorarable! I also got the heathered speckled black and it's fabulous too! So guess what? Neither are going back LOL.

Really wanted to love this
So disappointed! I bought this in black and it looks faded. Which would be okay, but I was not aware it would look like this, but then I put it on. It says there's extra length? I'm six feet tall, so that's always a plus, but I just received it in the mail and it is to short and the shoulder area is so constricting! It is not true to size at all!
I will say that the arm length is good though. But wouldn't buy this again and am returning it ASAP.

on the fence...
I'm a little on the fence with this product - especially for the price. Sleeves are a little too long for me & proportions are off in the chest/hips for my frame. I'm 32C, around 35-25-35 & just under 5'4". Size 4 looks best (1/2 zipped up) but is snug in the chest & flattens me when zipped all the way. Going w a size 6. I thought about 8 for extra space for layering but tried this morning at my yoga studio & it looked a little silly. Just ordered deep navy online - wanted a solid color that could go w some brown boots I have + I'm trying hard these days to not buy black. Hope this helps!

size up, sleeves too long
I ordered my usual lulu size 4 and the fit was a bit odd. The shoulder area looks like it still have plenty of room, the waist fit just right, but sleeves way too long. For reference, I am 5'3", 110lb.

So happy with this new updated scuba hoodie! I had ordered the scuba hoodie stretch last year and was so disappointed with it because it had absolutely no stretch! and it felt like a straight jacket, that and it's plastic zipper made me wanna burn it. I had decided that these scuba hoodies were a sham, but I tried one more time because they had the estate grid pattern and i'm a sucker for windowpane. I was nervous it would be tight and uncomfortable but I was pleasantly surprised! This hoodie has just the right amount of stretch to look clean and fitted but comfortable and moveable. I have a larger bust and hips and it has just the right amount of room. Plus, a metal zipper! I'm on the shorter side, 5'3, and found this hoodie still hit my lower hip. It's super thick and warm and I love it. I found my usual size to fit just fine. I think if you want a loose hoodie or are maybe very tall, size up. My only gripe is the shipping! WTH Lulu!? It took 2 months to get here! I would have rather paid to ship it than get free shipping and have some half rate shipper stick it in a corner til' they're good and ready to deliver it. Other than that, very happy, much better than their last version.

I'm 5'7" and considered slim to average in body type. I don't like my tops super snug and tight so I always choose to wear Scuba's in size 8, which gives me a little extra room in the arms and body. I recently purchased the bark berry colored Scuba (love the color!!) in a size 8 and holy smokes was it tight!! Tight in the arms and snug in the body....when I did the arms cross test, it really pulled at the underarms area and just felt all around way too snug. Thankfully I ordered an 8 and 10 and the 10 fit perfectly....like the 8 should have fit!
LL - If you "update or improve" the fit, then keep the overall sizing the same. It's annoying to have to order multiple sizes just to keep the ones that fit and deal with the hassle of returning the ones that don't.

Not happy with new scuba hoodie fit :(
I used to always beg my parents for a scuba hoodie for Christmas! They were my absolute favorite hoodie's I owned and fit perfect! But I Just ordered one in a size four, my normal size and fit for all the old scuba hoodies. But for Some reason the scuba hoodie 2 is much bigger than my other ones and stretches as the day goes on. Which isn't the normal for a scuba hoodie. It seemed like it fit pretty well at first but then as the day went on it was loose and not the scuba hoodie I'm used to. So I would advice everyone to try them on in store before am online purchase if possible because I was very disappointed :(

This was given to me as a gift a few days ago, and I am already in love! This jacket is absolutely amazing. It's warm without being bulky, and it fits me perfectly.

Scuba Hoodie II
I ordered a size 8 based on the reviews. It was the right choice for me. For reference, I wear 4 or 6 in tops and bottoms. Arm length is longer than normal and the sleeves (in the forearm section) are VERY tight. It would actually feel too tight to wear with even a lightweight sweater. Fingers crossed this will loosen a bit. Weight is great, it feels high quality. For the steep price, I am hopefull it holds up well after washing and wearing.
