Heads up – this twist on our signature Luon fabric has all the properties we love (moisture wicking and four-way stretch) with its own unique fit and feel.
why we made this
We designed this jacket with our favourite features to be the Goldilocks of lightweight layers. Foldover Cuffins™ sleeves help keep our hands warm and breathable Mesh under the arms lets us blow off post-practice steam. We gave it a slim fit for easy layering over a tank or under a jacket so we feel juuust right after class.

Pilling after two wears and no wash!
I really liked the jacket, and it seemed like a perfect piece for workout and casual wear. It had a nice feel, and fit perfectly against my body. Although after only two casual wears within one week the left hand cuff was covered in pills! I had only worn it twice without washing it, and it had already started to pill! I really wanted to love this jacket, but I was extremely disappointed that I received low quality for such a hefty price.

Love, but wish the zippers matched
I do love the Forme. It is flattering, especially for more petite women. In fact, I own many of them. The new Forme, with its cuffins, hair tie and more fitted shoulders, is definitely an improvement over the version released in early 2013. That being said, I still miss the Define. What's more, I am not a fan of the trend back to metal zippers. I don't think I'd mind the zippers quite so much if the primary zipper matched those on the pockets. For example, if the Deep Zinfadel jacket had ALL gold zippers AND a gold omega on the hair tie (like the Cashew Fo Drizzle) I think it would have looked fabulous. (I did end up getting the DZ Forme on MD and I like it, but I could have LOVED it.) In addition, some Formes seem to run a bit longer and have less fitted hips. I don't personally like this because I feel those changes make the jacket even less like the Define -- which I hope you bring back at some point. PLEASE! OT:PLEASE release a solid green (not neon or pastel) Forme or Define.

quality not longlasting, severe peeling,
i have a few of these forme jackets, and I always take care and wash my lulu items very seldom in a mild wash clod water , lay flat to dry...ect . Anyway I can clearly say with my experience not only with my recent "white" forme jacket 2 weeks ago , worn 4 times at most. However I will only wear it once I get to yoga or gym, with my 3 other forme jackets which are completely peeling between shoulder area on back and side of arms to a point fabric is in awful shape. This I believe happened with my other forme jackets because I did wear it to and from gym underneath my wintercoat which I supposed has cause the low quality Luon fabric to peel and look like small cotton balls all over friction areas like inner sides of arms and back ever the chest area fabric has peeled from yoga recently so just due to any contact with any objects or wearing clothing over top of it. Its not only forme jackets basically Lulu pants and expecialy the luon types have peeled in less than a year . I have had my oldest lululemon item almost 2 years now so most purchases within a year and all have peeled and not withstood even the lightest of activities. Not the most endurance or quality based product. I would say mostly people buy your items for the logo or name,. Even the service in store is the worst I can honestly say I ever had anywhere. I have never received proper help and positive experience when shopping..... I can get better service and product elsewhere .

Just got my forme jacket in the mail today. Got cadet blue in size 2. And I got to say I love it. Fit is perfect, material nice and soft, I like that is tight and fitted. For ref I am 5.5,115lbs,32B chest and its great. size 4 would be probably fine as well but I don't think I would like to be loose, I always get scuba hoodies in 4 but for this one 2 its perfect. On me is more fitted than one the model in the same color but that's how I like it because of the material.

I paid for the label
I am a rower and a lot of my teammates had this jacket, so I bought one. It's $108, which is a lot of money for this jacket. It doesn't keep me warm at all on the water, or when running.
Everyone at school has these jackets, so I thought I'd get one too, big mistake.The jacket feels so fragile to the point where I'm afraid to use it. It would be a good purchase if you're planning on not doing anything in it.

This is a great jacket and I wear mine ALL of the time going too and from the gym. Great for warming up and running errands.

Thanks for Camo Forme II
I've been looking for a camo jacket with a feminine cut, & this one definitely will NOT get you mistaken for one of the boys! Especially around here in Arkansas :D
I love the stretchy fabric that hugs you in the right places, the zippered pockets, & cuffins. Have not experienced any pilling or loose threads so far. I bought it about a week ago & have worn it almost daily. I have not washed it yet, but I haven't experienced any problems with my Luon outfits (I uses Woolite).
I'm 5'5" & 114 lbs, slender build with shoulders - got a 6. I have the petite fleur on order...

This is my first Forme Jacket and I got the petit fleur pattern which suits me very well. I love the pattern, and the fit of this jacket is a great surprise. i've been a complainer that athletic brands including Lulu haven't really sized to the athletic form many of us get, that is, broad shouldered but narrow waisted. This jacket fits better on me than the Define did which was just too tight in the shoulders. This Forme jacket fits very comfortably across the back and shoulders on me with nice close but not constrictive fit in the torso. I agree with a previous reviewer that this jacket is not as warm as the Define but that is actually what i wanted. I will use this over my tanks on the bike and the define was too heavy for that. This feels just the light layer needed. I have a long torso but I think the length is ample for this style jacket and I'm very happy with it. I am 5'7". 118 and have size 4.

Perfect for spring!
I hadn't shopped much Lulu before, but between the Scuba Hoodie II and this Forme Jacket, I'm not sure which I like better!
The Lavender Dusk color had caught my eye online so I made the drive, and the color is just as beautiful in person as it is online. I tried on a size 8, which is what I am normally, but decided to size up to a 10, as this jacket is more fitted. It was a good choice, it is fitted, but not skin tight like the 8 was.
For the record, I am 5'5" with a slimmer build, 36c bust. Sizing up one was definitely better for me, I feel more comfortable. The fitted look is great, it hugs in all the right places and it very flattering. I have received many compliments! Love the cuffins as well, they have come in handy a couple of times!
Great for working out or for everyday wear, even to dress it up a bit for a night out!
I am also loving the spring colors - after purchasing the Lavender Dusk, I also went back for the Fresh Teal and Angel Blue, just gorgeous and bright for spring!

Love it... but quality is disappointing
This jacket wasn't exactly love at first site. I had tried it on several times but always passed because the length is very short on me. When the Fatigue Camo was released I absolutely had to have the jacket. I decided to purchase the Fatigue Camo Cool RacerBack Tank at the same time to wear underneath the jacket to make it appear to be longer. Together they are perfection. I have worn the two paired together several times... none of which were during a workout. Although I love the outfit, I was very disappointed with the quality of the jacket after only 4 wears and 2 washes. I was shocked at the amount of pilling on the sides of the jacket and on the arms. I also found several threads popping out of place. For $108 ($114 with tax) I expected the jacket to hold up better.
The CRB on the other hand it perfect without any pilling.
I recommend the jacket to others, but caution them about the quality. I probably wouldn't purchase another unless it was a very appealing print.
