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.

It fits great, but overall, not very impressed with the product longevity. If you follow the instructions for caring for it, it will still fade considerably and look worn and old very soon after purchasing.

I purchased this jacket because it fit really well and loved the colour. However, I was really upset after only wearing it once for a few hours. But already I had chaffing on the sleeves and especially ny the thumb holes that I didnt use. As well as, threads coming out along the stitching on the arms. =(
I really loved this jacket!

Love it but...
I love the fit and look of this jacket and I fell in love with the colour, however I'm really disappointed that after having it for about a month the colour is starting to fade, especially considering how expensive it is. I never use bleach so I don't know why it's turning yellow.

I went to the store to try this jacket on as it seemed really nice on the website. I am usually a size 4 at Lululemon (I have never bought another size, ever!). The fit was good over the shoulders, but the rest of it was too tight for me. I therefore tried on the size 6. It was a little bigger, but it was too big over the shoulders. Overall, the fit of this jacket is just not right. It's too bad because it looks really nice.

Fit - it's very flattering and slimming.
Cuffins - they actually helped me out when I forgot my gloves!
But man, the quality! I've worn it 3 times and haven't even washed it. It's pilling really badly around the thumbholes. Really disappointed with this one. I paid good money for this. The thumbhole region is an area that will recieve a lot of abrasion. Maybe reinforce it with a different material if this luon is prone to piling? It ages the garment terribly.

I bought this jacket in a size 4 in Cadet Blue about 1 week ago, I have worn it almost daily as I love the fit and color and especially the cuffins! HOWEVER, I have not washed it yet and the fabric has already started to pill under the arms AND on the cuffins. I'm shocked and very disappointed. For something SO expensive, it clearly was not created with quality in mind and does not hold up very well. I had this jacket in black without cuffins and did not experience this problem at all so it must be something with the new make/fabric.

not worth it
I bough the "light teal" color and it is lime green, not teal. I have multiple jackets from them and I always wear a size 4, so I bought this jacket in that size as well and it is two big in the arms and to small everywhere else.

Quality not what it used to be
I bought this jacket the other day because I have another 1 I bought maybe 2 yrs ago that is still in perfect condition, super comfortable and super soft, still looks brand new. The zippers and the material feel cheap on the new jacket. I have a lot of lulu clothes and have never been disappointed, I tired on a couple of other jackets at the same time (different styles) and they felt cheap as well. I purchased anyway because I am a loyal customer. Please don't lose the quality that has made you the company you are.

Better than the define. Stay true to size.
I have been a loyal lululemon customer for years. I have 2 define jackets from back in the day. While I do love my define, I honestly must say the Forme Jacket with Cuffins fits better than my define jackets. It also has a more sleek look to it in my opinion. It is more slimming from all angles. I got the Cadet Blue version and the quality seems great and it fits like a dream. Awesome zipper: easy and quick to zip up. Very attractive body mapping/seams. Contrary to the other reviews suggesting "size up" I have to disagree and say that you should stay true to size. Measure yourself according to the lulu size chart and buy that size. I am a size 4 according to the chart and bought a size 4. The jacket is not tight at all, just fitted... and it does not feel tight in the slightest. I tried a size 6 for comparison and it was too large all over. The arms/shoulders were baggy (and I have very broad shoulders) in the size six and the torso portion was not fitted at all... sizing up does not do this jacket justice! Order true to size! I stayed true to size and it fits the same as it does for the model in the soot and cadet blue photos!
This jacket looks super cute with any lulu bottom and with jeans!

This jacket has to be my most favorite jacket! I love the fabric, the feel, and the whole look of it. It really makes me look slim and its so comfortable! I love how it 'molds' to my body shape and flatters me. I've gotten so many compliments on it, I even went to buy another one! Overall, I love this jacket so much!
