Dance Studio Jacket III
I just purchased by 3rd Dance Studio in Bumbleberry. The colour is absolutely gorgeous! The fit is consistent with my other grey and black Dance Studios. I take a size 6 and it is fitted but not tight- extremely comfy and warm. Love it! Keep the bright colors coming! The negative is the price.....

Cute, comfy, but runs small
I found this jacket in store and fell in love. I normally wear size 4 (5'5" 127lbs, 34B, lean/slim build)...but I ended up getting a size 8 because it runs so tight and fitted. I might have just gotten a 6 if I was shopping myself, but all of my friends said the 8 is better so it doesn't make me look like I'm suffocating. Don't get me wrong, the 6 fit and felt okay...but 8 definitely looks and feels much better. To test out that I didn't gain weight lately and didn't know, my size 2 cousin tried the jackets on and agreed she would probably buy a 6. (If not for sizing, I'd give it a 5 star)
I have this jacket in Plum and I pretty much only use it on the one side...the solid colored side. The reverse of most of the jackets have a lighter heathered looking color due to the material. Looks okay, but I prefer the solid. The hood and the thumb holes are also a perk. The jacket is stretchy and comfy. I highly recommend, just try on first...and don't be scared to get it a couple sizes bigger for comfort and look.

Excellent Jacket, Wish it came in a size 2
I love this jacket, my only complaint is that it doesn't come in a size 2. It used to but not anymore. I love these new fall colors. Lulu- please re-stock. I love that this jacket is reversible.

Just received my dsj in bumbleberry and it has thread pulls on the front(atleast 6) and now I have to send it back and there aren't any more available in this color and size 6. Very disappointed, where is the quality control Lu?

TTS= I'm 5'5", 125lbs, 34b runner and I got the 8 in plum. Super cozy, adequate bum coverage, no issues.

Great jacket, fall 2014 sizing is inconsistent
I love my dance studio jackets. I have 7 or 8 of them. When the new colours came out this fall I rushed in and grabbed a couple. I was really frustrated to find that the sizing is not consistent this time around. I am 5'10" and 150. I am a tts 6 but wear an 8 in the DSJ. The first 8 that I got was baggy through the bust, so I ordered a 6. It was too tight. So I went to the store and found an 8 with the correct fit.
Then, yesterday, I saw the new berry DSJ at the Scarborough store in an 8 and it had the same baggy through the bust fit. Someone had obviously ordered it online and then returned it. I suspect they found the same issue that I did.
I now have a size 8 purple fog that I am happy with, but it took more work than it should have to get it.

Bought my first dance jacket after one of my friends recommended it and I absolutely love it! However I did find that the jacket run small compared to other lulu products that I've purchased.

dsj one of my favorites!!
The DSJ 3 is one of my favorite jackets. I have one in black, one in bali breeze and my latest one is in purple fog. I love how the jacket is very flattering on and I love the different material. It is a lighter jacket- which has been perfect for the weather right now. I like that the jacket has thumbholes and deep pockets. I am in between a 4 and 6 and I chose the 6 for all of my jackets. For reference I am 5'5" 130 pounds.

Great Jacket and Worth The Price
I'm a frugal shopper and really did not want to spend over 100 on a hoodie, but after trying and returning black hoodies from 3 other stores, this one is the winner. The fit is fantastic, it's so cozy, and the sleeves are actually long enough for my crazy long arms. I'm 5'9" and 135 lbs and usually a 6 or 8 at Lululemon. I got this in an 8. I tried on the 8 and 10 in store and the 10 was too big in the chest. They didn't have a 6, but the 8 is probably as snug as I'd want to go in the waist. I think the plum and blue colors are so pretty, but for the price I felt like I should get a basic color that would be worn all the time, so I got the black. It was the right choice. It matches all my workout pants and pretty much works with everything. Oh, and the pockets are deep and the hood is functional and actually fits tightly to your head which is super convenient if it's raining or you're out running.

Must have piece
Got this in bumble berry- the color so fantastic that I couldn't resist. Plus, in my opinion, color looks particularly striking on this kind of fabric. I doubt I will ever wear it as a reversible and I feel it is kinda silly to reverse to basically identical color, but it is so soft inside! The fit is flattering, but size up one size. Love, love, love this jacket. They never go to sale, even in boring colors- thus hurry up and grab one before they are gone or before the latest trend- sneaky price increase by lulu.....
Quality, shape, comfort- wise- it is one of the best lulu pieces ever.
