New Favourite Sweater
Love this jacket! I am 5ft 1 and 118lbs. My torso, shoulders and tummy are small. I tried on the size 2 in store and thought that it might be a little too small and instead I bought the size 4 in black. I love the size 4 but sometimes I wish I had gotten the 2 because I like the snug feeling. So it's a little long in the arms and a tad baggy but I still love it! VERY warm and great quality. Only con is that the colour faded after one gentle wash in cold water, hung dry.

Oh my god? amazing!
This hoodie is beautiful! I'm 146lbs and 5 foot 8. I bought the grey sweater in a size 6 and it fits great! The sweater has a great snug fit but isn't too tight (I don'y get love handles). I was worried the hoodie might be a little short, but it's the perfect length! I was also worried it might be too big, but the size is great. The grey sweater is adorable and well made. I'm super happy with this online purchase!

I bought myself a Lulu outfit as my 'reward' for participating in my first triathlon.... and I've gotten bike grease all over my lovely movement jacket!! And of course it's the light grey stripe colour #sadpanda!

Laundry day was not a breeze......
I ordered this jacket in the gray stripe as well as the black and cream striped. Once they arrived, although I wanted to keep both I made myself pick one & return the other. I went with the black and cream and returned the gray. The jacket was perfect for my trip home to Michigan for the 4th of July. The weather was a lot cooler than I expected for the time of year and I ended up wearing this as a jacket most of the time I was up there. It was super comfy and the satin details made it very feminine looking and more fancy than your average zip up. When I returned home, I washed it separately (because it has a zipper) in cold water and hung it by the hood over the laundry door to dry. When I went to wear the next time I could tell for sure that it had shrunk. It was no longer comfy, it pulled through the back of my shoulder making me feel like a "fat guy in a little coat" and also pulled at the thumb holes because the arms were now too short. It was more snug through the torso and it seemed that the pockets were the only thing that didn't shrink. They looked bagging and frumpy as if I was snuggling something. So disappointing because I really like this jacket! I read the other reviews and was surprised nobody else experienced this.
Although I was disappointed with the product, I must say that the customer service has improved at the stores I frequently visit. I took the jacket to the store and was allowed to exchange it for something new. I would have preferred the $108 back rather than picking something just to get something... But at the end of the day it's better than getting stuck with a jacket that I couldn't wear.

BETTER than SCUBA! Fashionable and So feminine
Great fit! It runs bigger than scuba. I usually wear Size 4 or Size 6 in all lulu jacket and hoodie. But I bought size 2 in this one and so glad I size down. I tried it at the store and all educators thought size 2 fit the best. Love it!

Perfect lightweight hoodie!
This is the perfect lightweight hoodie for cool summer nights. I live in the PNW, and this has been my go to jacket for cool mornings and nights. It is super soft and I love the big hood - perfect for windy evenings on the beach in front of a bonfire. It looks great with jeans too. It holds its shape after multiple washings and is just a great quality item.
I will say this is a size up item since the bottom of the jacket does not have a lot of give. My regular size fit fine, but would have been too tight with anything other than a tank underneath.

Very cute, just not for me.
This is a very sweet little jacket. I really do like the ruffles on the hood. It's cozy and would be warm enough. Only problem is that it gave me horrible muffin top, or rather, made the muffin top I have look 10% worse. Yikes, not pretty.

This jacket is really well made, flattering and has great stretch. I really love the ruffle detailing at the hood. The stretch French terry makes this hoodie really cozy and attractive. I would recommend to anyone.

Nice jacket but...
I loved the fit of this jacket/hoodie. It's light enough for cool summer evenings. I would've kept it but I ended up returning it because I didn't like the ruffle trim on the hood. It seemed to weigh the hood down at the sides and make it "floppy" if that makes sense. I would love this jacket if they didn't have the ruffle trim on the hood.

Have obsessed over the scuba hoodies but I always feel a bit Michelin Man bulky in those, this jacket is a perfect alternative for me. The fabric is warm but not bulky, I'm an 8 in forme jackets and the 8 in this fit tts...sits down well on the hips and not too tight in the arms, but still enough room to wear another layer underneath. Love the little ruffle around the hood and the hood is roomy without feeling like your head has disappeared inside it! I got the black & white stripe pattern and it's lovely. All round good basic jacket, this one will be on high rotation.
