Dance Studio Jacket III
Comfy and beautiful!
I bought this online and first read the reviews to determine sizing. I'm between 4 and 6 in bottoms and tops, but I sized up to 8 after reading the reviews. It's beautiful, very figure flattering and despite being on the tighter side, streamlines over my tummy. For reference, I'm 5'5 and 123 pounds.

I absolutely love this product!
It is SO flattering and comes in at all the right places. The material is light-weight but is still warm without the bulk.
I love it so much I have just bought it in another colour - exciting!

I wear a size 4 in both the scuba and define jackets but found I had to size up to a 6 in the dance jacket III.
I just love it this jacket!!!
When online sold out, I bought it over the phone with help from the lovely girls at the Warringah store. So, so comfy and light yet still warm. Loving the pigment blue colour too!

Bought the grey one...liked it so much I also bought two more!!! I bought it one size up than my usual size....the tummy part is a bit snug! Its so pretty! I wear one of my three at least twice a week...every week. I live in San Francisco and it's chilly often.

Love the style unhappy with the quality
So I have been wanting this jacket ever since last summer. I searched numerous stores in Calgary and Edmonton, to which I lucked out finding it in Banff while on a conference. I love the style and I get lots of compliments. However, I noticed the other day that there are two snags in the hood. I have never washed it yet as I just purchased it two months ago and only have worn it a hand full of times. I try to be careful as I have read the reviews and noticed some of the comments in regards to the snags. I love lululemon but they need to have better quality products especially when the item is $128.

Where is quality control?!
I had been holding out on buying a new Dance Studio Jacket for a while. My last one was stolen at the gym and while it was a nice staple as plain black, I wanted a colorful jacket for spring and summer. It's beautiful - the Bruised Berry is an absolutely gorgeous color. However, the quality of this jacket just isn't there. I have threads coming out down the entire side of my left arm (see photo) and it looks HORRIBLE! I'm afraid to cut them and they don't come out if you gently tug on them. lululemon needs to take a SERIOUS look at their quality control...this is unacceptable for the brand and makes loyal buyers like myself leery about the future of this company...

I LOVE this jacket!
I bought the second version of this jacket and LOVE it! I bought it in a size 2, and am bummed to see that lululemon is not selling it in a 2 anymore. The 2 is fitted on me, but perfectly so, as I can still wear an extra layer under that jacket (long sleeve included) without the shirt getting all bunched up. (For reference I am 5' 1", wear xs tops, and 0/24 pants, which is relevant because this jacket goes around and past your hips.) My favorite thing about this jacket is the deep pockets (phenomenal design), but I also love the hood and sleeves.
Lululemon, please make more tops and jackets in size 2. The jackets and tops in size 4 are often too big!

I received this in the mail yesterday in Opal, very fitted jacket. It is comfortable and stretchy, not restricting. Read all reviews, some saying size up , some saying don't size up. I went with my regular 4. I am 5"4, 115 pounds. Pretty regular chest size. It is very fitted but cute, I take 4 in almost all things but forme jackets I like to buy a 6 so you don't see every little crease on my back. This would be the same. It shows too much. I guess I should have ordered the 6 as well to compare. I have also read that if you size up it doesn't stay put and is too bunchy. I could see that. So if you like the really fitted look this jacket is for you.

I love it
I love this jacket! It is extremely flattering, the pockets are very deep, and I love the fact that it is reversible, it makes weather changes easy to adjust to. I wear it all the time and have washed it twice, yet I have not had the quality problems as written in a few of the other reviews. I would suggest buying at discretion only because of the negative reviews.

Nice fit and cut, POOR quality
I really want to love this jacket. I own many lululemon outfits and had never experienced this before.
The design and cut are perfect. However, quality is EXTREMELY POOR.
I have already exchanged the jacket once. The first time, after just one wear, the threads on the sleeves started peeling, the sewings are off. So I brought the jacket back to the retail store for an exchange.
I was hoping it was only that particular jacket which had quality issues. However, this new jacket, after few times of wear and one wash, one of the sleeves near the thumbhole started to wear, there is even a small hole on the sleeve. Moreover, the threads on the chest started to peel too. As if the jacket has been wore for ages and falling apart.
I certainly cannot justify paying this amount for a jacket with such TERRIBLE QUALITY. I start to doubt if I should purchase anymore lululemon in the future.
