Forme Jacket II *Brushed
love it but tighter than I expected
I bought this jacket to wear to and from the gym and yoga classes. Pros: the fabric is seriously high quality. It is thick but it still breathes. I don't get hot in it when going from being outside on cooler days to being inside the gym. Its fairly stretchy, but I definitely can't wear a looser long sleeve shirt under. Its better with a running top like CRB. Cons: I bought the size 6 after trying it on the store. I'm 5'7 and 130 lbs. I have a larger chest (32DD) but they "compress" well with a sports bra. Anyway, I love the fit in my arms and shoulders, but it is tight through the torso. It is VERY slimming, but sometimes I feel like it is a little too revealing if worn without a vest. I don't feel like it is very true to size 6.
I wear size 4 in pants usually and size 4 in CRB for reference. Size 6 in Energy Bra.

When I first got this jacket I thought it was the most amazing thing ever, as with all my other lulu purchases. I've had it for maybe a month and hand washed it once. Similar to what another reviewer wrote, the jacket pills very quickly. Much more quickly than my leggings, etc. I also noticed that a scuba hoodie I purchased late this summer started to fray along the inner arms (where the ribbed material meets the regular material). Starting to believe reviews that mention quality is going down...

Went in the Aspen, Co store to buy this jacket. Its been a few years since I purchased any jackets from Lulu. To my surprised, not only is it longer in the length, but also in the sleeves. And BTW - the only option Lulu will provide for alteration in the sleeves is they cut the cuff part off completely or you live with it. Now I remembered why I haven't purchased more from Lulu. Lulu, any plans on making petite size jackets? And as a side note, my sales person, KD, was very sweet.....can't say the same about the older women, whom I presume was the manager. She was anything but nice to KD or myself.

Love This Jacket.
I'm a very active person! And I love when things are both beautiful and functional. I have been using this jacket for warming up in the dance studio and for indoor figure skating. Really great on the ice, especially. The soft inside adds coziness, without bulk. Not something you want to wear outside if it is cold (I think some folks were thinking it is made for that?), but great for physical activity where warmth is necessary.

I brought the jacket a month ago. If i remember correctly , the jacket was suppose to "look like new" even after multiple washes. for a jacket this price, i am surprised to find my jacket looked liked that in the picture all over the jacket after one wash. And I even had it in cold water, gentle cycle.

Just lovely. Cozy, comfy, and slimming.
This was one of the best purchases everrr. haha.
I'm 5'3"-5'4", 135lbs and have always had a quite curvy, muscular, athletic build and this lovely jacket blew my mind. Fits perrrrfectly. I have a 36C chest so I didn't want my chest to be in a death grip, but a size 6 fit like a glove. I also have quite muscular triceps so I feared that this would be too tight. But all is well, no problems there either. It hugs your curves in all the right places and is super comfortable and slimming. Plus it looks really slick and minimalistic. What more could a gal want?
(side note: I have about a 36" hip and 27" waist, I was debating getting this in a size 8, but opted for a 6 in the end)

The most slimming jacket you will ever have!
The lululemon forme jacket II is the best thing ever. I purchased this in black and now want in every color. It goes perfect with leggings, sweats, or jeans. I love that it has the symbol on the side of the back. I have the forme I jacket in mint green and the sleeves are a little too long and the material is very thin. The forme II jacket fixes all those problems. I bought this jacket in-store because I wanted to see exactly what size fitted me best. The girls were super helpful and it looks like they had plenty in stock.

I LOVE THIS JACKET!!!
I am definitely splurging on myself when I buy lulu jackets! This jacket is perfect! I wear size 6 (32DD), bought size 6, fits like a glove.
I've worn this jacket a few times now and haven't noticed any pilling, so no complaints there.
I wasn't sure the jacket would be that warm since its not super thick, but it is quite cozy. I wore it to a hockey game with just a tank underneath (and a vinyasa scarf - another staple item), and was cozy and warm all night. When my hands felt chilly, I pulled the cuffins over and was quickly warmed up.
If this jacket is still around in a few weeks I may have to buy another color, b/c I want more! :)
