comfortable cotton paired with LYCRA® to make a cozy, breathable fabric with four-way stretch
why we made this
We designed this slim fit hoodie to keep us covered when we're on our way to or from the studio. We made it out of soft, stretchy and breathable fabric that's comfortable to slip on after practice. It's the simple things that make us smile.

not the same as the original "live simply"
I have this jacket from a couple of years ago when it came out w/ ghost, I got the black and love love love it it looked the same online so when the solid light gray came out I bought it got it in the mail today, its one super thin layer my other is a lot thicker not like a scuba mind you but more sturdy than this one and the fit was just better don't know why its different maybe its the super thin material? It also seems like its cut bigger somehow not nice and snug like its predecessor, anyway took it back today super bummed because I loved the live simply one so much ;(

Love this hoodie!
I love this hoodie. It's super soft, warm without being oppressive, and nice and long. The material is really high quality, and the deep hood is great. My only objection is the length of the sleeves, which are MUCH too long on me, and which I will probably end up paying to have shortened. (Other Lululemon tops fit my arms much better, so I don't think my arms are the problem.) I have it in Inkwell (would have loved the Cornflower, but the Inkwell was on sale at my local store and I just couldn't justify the full price), and am not sure why so many people think it looks faded - it looks fine to me. I have three Lulu hoodies - a Scuba, this season's Bliss Break hoodie, and this one, and this is my favorite.
One star off for the sleeve length; otherwise, this hoodie is fantastic.

As a few others have stated it is a little faded but still very pretty and super comfy!! I love the fit and absolutely love the high collar and hood! Yes it is a little looser of a fit but that's a welcome change since lulu seems to be making things smaller and smaller! Great for us bustier girls!! I wish they had more colors as I would order a few more. This will be replacing my scuba since they are being made shorter AND smaller by the minute. It's also less bulky! Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the "faded" material. PLEASE make more colors

Okay, so I really don't understand the reviews saying this item is faded?? I have this in Inkwell/heathered Inkwell and my daughter has the Cornflower. We both love our hoodies and they are not faded. Super soft, nice and long, totally satisfied. In fact, my daughter had two people purchase this hoodie after seeing it on her!

why did this hoodie have to be so faded?
Bought this hoody twice. Returned twice. Tried it on every time I go in to a lulu store since it was put on the shelf hoping one day ill say..."faded? Its ok! I can learn to love the faded look." I love Everything about this hoodie other then the fact its faded looking in all colors I love it so much I litetaly try all three colors everytime. Its the illusion of my perfect hoodie.
Just a suggestion for lulu design team....how about bringing it in ivory so it cant look faded? Id buy it in a heartbeat...or fix the black.....or price it at $59 ill accept the faded look at a lower price. This coulda been amazing. If it wasnt faded i think it coulda even been priced higher $128.

finally a long sweater
I love this sweater. The material is super soft to touch which may give it the slightly faded look in the darker colours. I would say it softer than lulu's previous terry blend.
I am 6'0", 158lbs and have a long torso, narrow hips and broad shoulders. The scubas and all the other short jackets are too short and look very boxy on me whereas this is sleeker and much more flattering. I saw a shorter girl wearing this sweater in the store and it also looked flattering on her. I would definitely recommend this sweater. I think it is a great winter item as it is really easy to layer under other jackets (I find my only scuba looks really bulky under things).
I have not had any issues with the zipper. Please make more in some of the brighter colours!

I was hesitant to order this because of the lower reviews so I was pleasantly surprised when I received it. I'm 5'5" and I just love the longer length of the jacket. It's so comfy...I love the inkwell color and glad I choose it b/c my favorite color is navy. I have an In Stride jacket as well and I love this just as much.

This is my first review. I just bought this jacket. The fabric is soft, the jacket is well made and the fit and style are just perfect. I love the length, not too short. It's not as tight fiting as I thought, it's super comfy. I have no issues with the zipper. Love it! thanks lulu!

I bought this jacket in Inkwell, my absolute favorite color, and was very excited when it arrived. The fabric is so soft, the jacket is well made and the fit and style are perfect. I love the higher collar that leads into the oversized hood, and the swim or glyde lining in the hood is a nice touch. The problem came when I went to try the two-way zipper, which didn't work for the life of me, and believe me I tried everything. I am heartbroken because the jacket itself is so beautiful and comfortable, but the zipper is obviously defective, and I just can't justify keeping it. Lulu, please quality test your zippers! It is such a major let down when you purchase something you love and find out it has to be returned because of the zipper not working properly.

Material W-A-A-A-Y thinner
I have several of these sweaters in the older version and the material is much thicker --- unlike this new version ---- the material is much thinner--more for spring or summer. Suprised LLL launched this as part of their winter line. Still kept mine though because I have been looking for a long navy sweater. The price point on these new thinner versions of a great past sweater should have been $20 less. Seems like LLL charges more and you get less these days. Really starting to rethink my purchases.....
