Forme Jacket II *Brushed
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! :)

Love this Jacket. Very flattering and the cuffies are a great add on to the former forme jacket. The only down side is that the sleeve are very long, but because of the cuffies the sleeves were not hemable. If fact i was told they would have to cut the cuffie off to make it work...which defeats the purpose of the jacket.
Other than that I love it.
The problem isn't big enough to prevent me from wearing or buying another.

This jacket fits like a glove and makes me look slimmer than I actually am. I wear it almost everyday as a layer, for a run, with jeans, running errands.......so versatile and cute!
For size reference, 5'4.5" and 125 pounds. Size 6 fits me perfectly.
Oh, and it washes so well too (washer/dryer)!

tighter than last season
I was so excited to get a warmer Forme jacket! I wear my turquoise one from this summer all the time! Went and got my usual size 6 to get home and find out it is gaping over the booty area. Went back and switched it to a size 4 because the sales girl said that was an indication that it was too big, and that it had been redesigned since last season. Didn't have on my usual things for underneath so just went with it. Got home to put it on with the usual under layers and it is soooo tight, especially through the arms and elbow area. Well, actually through the body too. Arms and torso are not my big areas. My butt is, if anything. So it seems strange that I went a size down to fit my booty right and now it is too tight in the arms and trunk. Not sure what to do next...Back to the store!

Lovely shape and great performance
I wear this jacket over a light long sleeved layer for running errands, to/from the pool and for runs in colder weather. It works perfectly and the jacket is a nice shape. I like this brushed fabric better than the regular forme jacket fabric. It feels softer and more substantial. It is fitted but not too tight and the stretch makes it work even for running. I got my regular size and it fit perfectly. I usually have trouble with jackets being too tight in the chest but this worked well and was very flattering. I've washed and hung to dry with no issues. I didn't think the cuffins worked very well though.

Makes me feel super fanta-bulous!!!
I bought this jacket online and wow, I feel GREAT when I wear it. Yes, price-wise, it is an 'investment' on my part, nonetheless a good investment! It fits very well. I feel like 'da-bomb-diggidy-bomb' whenever I put it on. I am going to be honest, having this jacket keeps me 'behaving' in terms of maintaining a fit (and healthy) physique. The fit of this jacket is fanta-bulous (fantastic+fabulous), however, I will be realistic and state that keeping in shape enhances the way the jacket is meant to hug the body.

Love this jacket!
Finally a Forme Jacket that is warm, soft and beautifully tailored!
Please Lulu, make this jacket in lots of gorgeous colors: Paris Perfection, Spry Blue, Yellow, White and I'll be buying them all :)
I live in Australia and had a friend buy and ship it to me... Worth it.
I'm 5'4", bought a size 2 and it fits beautifully.

Not that cozy
This didn't feel warm and cozy to me as advertised. I wish they made the scuba hoody without a hood. No good choices for warm, fitted jackets without a hood that don't look like coats. Returning this one today. :(

Zipper Pull broke after 1 week!
I love the fit of this jacket and the style! Perfect for after a sweaty workout. Although after less than a week the zipper pull broke. I contacted the store who directed me to contact the corp. office or online help. Which was a complete waste of time! She said they cant mail out zipper pulls, nor can it be ordered. Disappointing since I do purchase Luluemon because of the quality! Seems like such a simple fix, send me out a replacement zipper pull! I guess I?m asking too much! Other than that the jacket is great! Just be extra careful with your zipper.

Size up, Ladies!
I am a solid size 6, but in this the 6 was quite restrictive. I sized up to an 8 which fits almost identically to my original forme jacket. I love the color, and it is thicker and cozier on the inside than my other forme! I plan on wearing this running on cold mornings!
