Dance Studio Jacket III
I purchased this jacket to be a spring/fall in-between seasons jacket. It's perfect as such. I think Lulu's intent was to have it be very fitted, but I wanted it a little looser to fit over clothing. Because of that, and because it already seems to fit small, I purchased it in a 12, when I normally wear about an 8 in Lulu jackets. It fits just loose enough.
I have a long torso, and this jacket is long enough in both the sleeves and waist. Plus, it can flip inside out for a totally different look! I'm very happy with this purchase!

5 Star Jacket Worth Keeping Around
I love this jacket! My first lulu jacket was the Forme jacket. And while I really like it, it was soon replaced by my Dance Studio Jacket. Both are form fitting and provide a flattering fit. But I LOVE that this jacket has a hood. I wear it while running errands and it's so easy just to put the hood on while I dash in and out of places instead of using an umbrella (One thing: i do wish the hood were a little bigger) Water just rolls off the jacket, too.
It's also the perfect piece for wearing as I warm up before work outs when it's cooler. I can also layer it under a thicker jacket or my down vest. It's so versatile.
And I love the fitted bottom half. At first I thought it was too tight, but now I love that aspect of the jacket and find it's super flattering! The big stretchy band on the bottom half is the reason I prefer this jacket over the In Flux jacket. I hope this jacket stays around!! I have been waiting for more colors. It would be lovely in Vintage Pink.
It's the perfect jacket that is versatile, stylish, flattering. Please do not phase this out with the in flux jacket... it's a lulu classic!
For reference, I wear size 6 in the CRB but always have to size up to an 8 for jackets.

I have lusted after this jacket since it first came out. I am a fitness instructor and live in my lulu gear.and knew I needed this addition to my workout gear. There is only a "test store" in my area so the clothing items are very limited. Having read all of the reviews of this gorgeous jacket I wanted to definitely try it on to get the correct size. I was so excited when I stopped into my local store and saw they had two jackets returned and was in my size(2&4). I tried on my normal size 2 and it was definitely too snug. I tried on the 4 and it was perfect. Unfortunately, the 4 was not the color I wanted so I promptly came home and ordered it online. When I received my jacket in the mail I immediately removed the tags( I had already determined it was the correct size). Sadly the next day I wore it to the gym and it was big like too big. It's so much bigger than the one I tried on that I can only assume it's a 6 that was mis marked:( inconsistent sizing lulu is so frustrating now that I have a $130 jacket hanging in my closet I will never wear

Wrapping me up
I spent more than 20 minutes in the fitting room to figure if I wanted the size 2 or 4 since they both fit me well but just feel differently. So I ask the sales specialist to give me comment and she explains the belly part was design to wrap up my body. I picked the size 2 and I have been receiving compliment on it even though from my guys runner friends.
This jacket is so trendy and you can wear it when you don't go to work out too. I wear this to go for my run and I normally get warm up after the first mile and need to take off the jacket. I can easily tight it on my hip and it is just so light and it is adding more weight on me when I run.
One more good thing about this jacket is the pocket on both side is pretty deep and I can put my phone in it when I run. With the tightness of the jacket, the phone is kind of secure in the pocket without jumping out.

I love my dance studio jacket! I have 3 of these bad boys and I would buy another if they make more colors. It's lined so it's warm and cozy without being thick or bulky. It's super flattering! I get compliments every time I wear it. Don't hesitate, just buy it! You will not be sorry!

The Perfect Jacket
I am obsessed with my Dance Studio Jacket. I've owned mine for over a year and a half and it still looks like new. I used to live in Boston, and it was perfect for cycling in the later autumn months. It's super comfortable and ultra flattering. It's my second skin and definitely worth the money.

Warm and flattering!
I love this jacket! I am usually in between sizes in lululemon either a 2 or 4. I'm 5'5" 110 lbs. Veryyy small chested, for that reason I bought this in a 2. The 4 just looked a little too lose and bunchy around the bust area. The jacket is form fitting and much warmer than I expected since it feels so light weight. I will probably buy it again in black! I haven't experienced and quality issues except that where my sleeve rubs on the velcro of my backpack the stitching got a little frayed, but I consider that my fault. For some one my height (with a relatively short torso) the length fits perfectly!

Not worth the money.
I bought this jacket in September. I've always loved it and finally decided to spend the money on it. I only had it for about two months and wore it maybe once or twice a week and it started piling around the bottom part of jacket. Always followed washing instructions as I do with all my Lulu items. Not what I expected for the price. Love the fit and feel but not impressed with the quality at all.

I got this jacket about a month ago and wore a vest over it one time and it rubbed the fabric so bad. For something that cost over $100 you would expect it to last longer than a month.
