Forme Jacket *Cuffins
thank you lulu
I will start by saying how impressed I am with lulu's customer service: last year I bought the beloved Define jacket from the WMTM section, recently the hem started splitting, creating a hole, so I spoke on "live chat" who helped me get a gift card with the return of that jacket! So in anticipation of that I got the Forme herringbone jacket, in the same size as my define and so far I'm loving it! So far I've only worn it casually or in between yoga practice but I like the fit and feel of the material! Very impressed with lulu lately! Thank you!

Love this Jacket
Love the feel of this jacket. This is my first purchase and I am impressed with the feel. I am just really having a difficult time with size. I originally tried a size 6 and the girls at the store thought it was a bit too big. It was long in the sleeves, but fit nice in the bust and stomach. The size 4 fit better in the sleeve and shoulder, but was more fitted in the bust and stomach. I am 5'1 and 116lb, 34D. Should I have sized up with a 6? I am very in between in this jacket.

Love the design, dissappointed with the material!
Have to admit that I am a new Lululemon shopper (since Aug of this year), and have heard that I missed the good old days when the material was impeccable. But since I love the DSJ and studio pants, I decided to give the Form II a try when I saw there's one in my local store that's on sale. The size 4 jacket fits me real well (32C, 25), and the color block design is what I really enjoyed.
However, the material is not what I expected for a Org >$100 jacket, it's much thinner than my friend's define (which is still acceptable), but after maybe 5 wear and 2 careful washes (in a laundry bag, cold, delicate cycle, lined dry, etc), I've noticed area with fuzzes (see attached image) - is this what I should expect from a jacket with a price tag that high? This definitely won't last as long as my friend's define, but will it even survive after one season? I strongly doubt it!
So, if you just want something that looks good but don't care about the quality, go for it. For me, this will be my last Form II no matter how cute the design is. Target or Costco definitely provide much better quality clothing in a discount price!

Just slightly disappointed.
Like many of the previous people reviewing this product, I also own a Define jacket and could not help but compare the two. I love my Define jacket, it is probably my favorite lulu product I've purchased to date. I purchased the Forme jacket in the light pink color and absolutely LOVE the color. The fit however, is not as good as the Define. The quality of the material feels cheaper, with less stretch to it. I can't comment on the "pilling" issue as I've only worn it 3 times. Fingers crossed! My overall opinion is that as much as I like this jacket, I think it is overpriced for the quality.

I like it-prefer define
I like this jacket a lot. I recently bought one at my local lululemon. I went to get a define jacket and heard they were discontinued but this jacket was very similar. I am a figure skater and wear this jacket to practice, off-ice, yoga, and to go running. I do not like this jacket as much and prefer my define jackets which i have 2 of. I wear my define jackets more than my forme jacket. I am a size 4 in both these jackets. Although one of my define jackets is a size 2 it still fits. PLEASE bring back define jackets.

Love the jacket - hate the fuzz.
I love this jacket - I bought it in cornflower 2 weeks ago - I wore it for morning runs. It fits perfectly, it looks great - but I have to second the pilling issues that others reported. - I had to take it back to the store this afternoon - they didn't have my size in stock so I'm going to try it again online and see if this next one is any better.
Under the arms - under the chest - everywhere anything rubs the fabric it piles - and you end up with fuzzy balls of lint all over. It is an expensive jacket - and it's meant for working out - the fabric should not be so delicate that it piles after 2 weeks. I was very careful with my jacket - gentle cycle only - never use the dryer. It looks terrible now.
I will say that the staff was exceptional when I took it back. They understood the problem and were happy to help me get a new one. You guys have great staff!
This was my first lululemon purchase - and I'm VERY disappointed. I expected more. I've got running clothes I have not paid nearly as much for that I've worn happily for several years. I'm going to give this one more try - but if this new jacket piles - I'm taking it back and I'll go with Victoria Secret Sport, I've had great luck with running capris from them and the prices are lower.

LOVED THIS JACKET!
This is my first lululemon jacket/sweater, absolutely loved everything about it, the fit was great, I feel great in it. Never have I had a sweater that made me feel this way!

Sizes are unreliable
The newest colour combinations of the Forme jacket drew me to it...and also that it looked very similar to my Define jacket.
I recently purchased the Forme jacket in slalom stripe inkwell/inkwell. It took me well over a week to decide which size to buy. (I asked 3 people for their opinion!) I currently own a Define jacket in a size 6 and it fits perfectly..however, when I tried on the size 6 in the Forme it was too baggy through the chest and mid back, but the size 4 was a lot more snug. If there was a size 5 it would have been perfect (and equal to the size 6 in the Define jacket).
After reading other reviews on this item, it seemed that most people opted to go down one size, so I 'settled' for the size 4. I hope that it works out and doesn't end up being too tight and uncomfortable.
**I am voting for the Define jacket to make its return!!

Beautifully Made Jacket
I have this jacket in cornflower and I love it. The fit is perfect for me in a size 6 (I am 5'4", 130 lbs, 34C). The construction of this jacket is on point and I really like the feel of the fabric. I'm obsessed with the cuffins! I thought it couldn't get any better from thumbholes but it did. They're so nice to tuck my hands into when I'm cold. Also, the cuffins fold away without being bulky when not in use so you barely even notice them - its really no different than just having thumbholes. The cornflower color is beautiful and is probably my favorite lulu color ever, especially because you can get accessories that match it. I'm so glad I bought this jacket.

Just got this sweater in Raspberry Glo Light. I LOVE THE COLOUR! The fabric feels slightly thinner than the black luon on my define. This being said, I miss the define jacket, this is close a second, but I can't say that I love the forme jacket as much as I love the define. I love the back vent on the define, which this jacket does not have. I will keep the jacket because I love the colour and am ok with the thinner fabric.
