Awkward sleeve length
while the jacket itself fits (and is very fitted), the sleeves are about 5 inches too long for my average-length arms. The model wears them pushed up for a reason--they're probably too long for her, as well. Definitely not worth the expense.

I should have waited for the Forme II...
After years of wearing my Define jacket I had to buy a second jacket for my daily trips to the studio, walks and runs. So I tried on the Forme jacket on several occasions and always put off buying it, as there are a few features I do not like: the cheap zippers at the front pockets, the long arms without the foldover "cuffins", the absence of a hair tie on the zipper pull, the mesh panel at the armpits. But do like the fit of the jacket - it looks just stunning!
So I finally forked out the money and made this jacket mine, only to find that 2 weeks later the Forme II was launched, and the updated version has all the little things that the original Forme lacks: cuffins, better zippers, a hair tie, no mesh panels!!! I was so annoyed that LL didn't reduce the price of the original Forme, knowing that the updated version would hit the stores soon. Now I'm stuck with a jacket I do not love 100%, and each time I walk into a LL store, I regret that I bought the old version and paid full price instead of hanging in there for the Forme II...

Loved It, Bought Two
I loved my black Forme Jacket so much, I bought another one in hot pink on sale. This jacket looks sleek, is form-fitting, and STAYS put. Walking, running, tennis, tumbling... no tugging needed. I would buy this jacket in every color available.

bring back the define!
I finally gave in and purchased the forme jacket in spry blue from the WMTM section. I have been holding off paying full price because I just don't think this jacket fits as well as the old define jacket did. And I miss the open vent the define had between the shoulders. I decided to give the forme a try since I got it on sale. Stuck with my original size 6. I find the armpits bunch along the front side of my chest but the thing that really bugs me is the zipper. On my old define jacket, on all my older lulu jackets, the zipper lays nice and flat. With this forme jacket the zipper bunches in two places when you sit down. The material is not as soft as the old define jackets either. I've also noticed the stitching on all the items I've purchased this year is sub-par. It is double stitched in some areas, loose threads everywhere and I've had some seams unravel after only a couple wears. Lulu, you really need to take a look at your product quality. Your customers are not stupid. We remember the old lulu quality that we could wear for five years and it still looked like new. I've been purchasing your clothes for ten years and follow the care instructions, hang everything to dry. There has definitely been a decline in quality in all products I have purchased this year. I am just hoping this jacket holds up more then a couple wears, because there are sections of the seam that look like it is ready to fall apart. I used to spend thousands of dollars a year on your product, but will be exploring other options until these quality issues are addressed.

I got this forme jacket for a gift and about two months after i got it, it started getting pills (wads of fabric) on the sleeves and the sides of the jacket. I have followed washing instructions and nothing will help. I have noticed other people have had the same problem.

Useful & Pretty Top Layer
Flattering jacket which is really wearable & versatile.
Appreciate the thumbholes & zippable secure pockets.
My jacket has been washed many times & still looks bright white!

I like length and fit of this jacket. Bought it in my usual size and it fits well. Love the colour too! I got it in Raspberry Glo Light.
If I were to change anything about this jacket it would be to make the sleeves a bit slimmer and maybe get rid of the seam near the elbow.

Great jacket for taller girls!!!
I don't understand all the hate on this jacket. It is thinner than the define, but I like that because it feels less constricting as well. It is very sleek and polished and cute! I am 5'9, so being taller, jackets are usually a little too short on me but this one fits nicely. The zipper quality is the only thing that I don't like. But, all in all, this is a really cute jacket and I want to get the dune/white in my size 4, but they are out of stock! Also, I don't know why the dune/white color doesn't come with a zipper pull. It should, it would boost business!! Xoxo.

Wow! So I first saw this jacket on an episode of Scandal and at the same time I was just starting to get into jogging again. It's getting chilly outside in the mornings here in AZ and this jacket is absolutely perfect! Keeps me warm and feels/looks fantastic on me! I hate to say it but part of my motivation for wanting to jog now is to wear this jacket!
My only complaint is that I want to get a couple more jackets but in the dune/white and all white colors and they don't have a size 6! Come on Lululemon! I can't give you my money if you don't have my size! ;)

This jacket is really awesome. I've owned the basic black for a long time & recently purchased another one; also in black with some added colours on the front. I have a really short torso but it looks super smart on. Please keep coming out with new innovative colours for this jacket. Perhaps a limited design for Breast Cancer to celebrate all the survivors & to lift up the spirit of all the fighters at the same time would be awesomely awesome.
