Forme Jacket (Cuffins)
Love the jacket, but the PILLING is terrible
I recieved this jacket in a beautiful pink/magenta as a gift and immediately became OBSESSED with it. I believe its an XS (the tag fell off so I can't confirm) and it fits like a dream. Snug but not too tight and ULTRA FLATTERING. I swear this jacket makes me look 10lbs thinner, and it's not even black! I also love the cuffins (those things where you can put your thumb through and cover your hands!). It's also literally the perfect weight for anything. The only downside to this jacket is that it started pilling SO quickly and now looks like a hot mess. Functionally it's still fine, but I expected more from a Lulu jacket! the back of the neck, undersides of the arms, the body sides, and especially the cuffs are all pilling like crazy :( Its not like I've dragged velcro across the thing, I don't have any animals that could have done this, and I'm very careful when I wash it, it's just from normal use. I came to the website to buy another one because this one just isn't pretty anymore, and a pair of pants, but now I'm reading that some of the pants have the same pilling issue and got discouraged :(
If you don't mind crazy pilling then GO for it, because this jacket is amazing in every other way.

I LOVED this jacket and bought it in a denim-esque colour about a year ago. Wore it to/from the gym, but one day, randomly, the elbow ripped and created a huge hole. The fabric was extremely thin there. I was disappointed because I am a loyal lulu purchaser, and in the past, my jackets/sweaters could last up to 5 years with no problems!! The quality with this jacket's fabric has definitely gone downhill.

Great jacket purchased 2 in black and 1 in gray. I want to purchase more; maybe another black and a white. Out of my size 2 hoping that you will have back in stock. My daughters are always walking away with mine and had to give to them. I love how fitted the jacket is because I am slim. I wear it casually and it looks great all the time. Hurry and get it back in stock.

what happened to all the beautiful patterns?
I have three of these jackets from last year in gorgeous patterns. I was looking forward to expanding my collection and have been SO disappointed to only see black. Please bring this jacket back in fun patterns and colors!

disappointed not as shown!
Just got mine too, silver zipper. UGH. Called to see if I could get one with a BLACK Zipper but they told me no way to check warehouse inventory so they can't help me. Looks awful with silver zipper. I own a LOT of Lulu, but definitely unhappy with this purchase.

Best for Post Workout
The Forme is my favorite fitted jacket from Lulu. The fit is tight so if that's not for you, size up or pick something else.
The moisture wicking is great, perfect after some sweating at the gym. I don't think I would recommend it for running, definitely more for at the gym or post class.

Beware. Not as shown
So excited to order this jacket and so disappointed to have it arrive NOT as shown. It came with a silver front zipper and silver lulu pull on the zipper. Pocket zippers are still black but if you are looking for all black, as shown, don't order it. I was thankful that they were willing to send me another one in replacement however it arrived the same way! What's going on? It looks cheap with two different zipper colors!

The shine dot black adds a nice dimension to the fabric. Fits well. Looks great with jeans.

I haven't had any problems with my lululemon purchases. . . but this jacket was poorly made. For being over $100 dollars within the first time wearing it the zipper broke. I thought my husband would be able to fix it but he said this is a Cheap zipper- his words not mine. it is still wearable but I don't like the fact that I can't use the zipper anymore :( It was when the color blue was available. Prettiest blue out there.

Disappointed in material/fit
I bought this jacket to wear while running/walking and on the way to the gym. Brought it home, wore it once to walk the dog, and within an hour my armpits were chafing so badly!! I never had an issue with fit or material in the past from Lulu and was so disappointed that I'm not going to be able to wear this again because it's very cute and looks nice otherwise. Unfortunately it was rubbing in all the wrong places- I think it's the material and fit in the arm area. Can't return it and I don't think I'll be able to find another tiny girl around here with skinnier arms who will want it, so I doubt I'll be able to get rid of it... Waste of money on my part. Should have took a lap around the store before I walked out with it.
