Really weird fit
So sad, I really wanted to love this jacket but the fit is so strange. The arms are really tight, but the midsection is really big and loose. I can't figure out what the purpose of this completely contrasting fit between the arms and midsection would be. I'm usually a 4/6 in lulu tops, 6 in slim fit jackets -- this jacket fits like the arms are a 2/4 and the midsection is a 8/10. Really weird. Very disappointing, the details on the jacket are great, really love the detailed ruffled hood and pockets, it reminds me of the old back to class jacket, but without the flattering fit of that jacket. While I appreciate the midsection isn't super tight like a lot of styles, it's completely disproportionate with the arms. Another huge disappointment is the fabric. I ordered the black and it's not a deep black, but instead very faded looking like its been thrown in the dryer many times over several years. The faded distressed black color doesn't go with the stylish details of the jacket and was really disappointing considering the extremely high price for a hoodie sweatshirt. For $118 I expect it to at least look new when it's brand new. Gave the jacket 2 stars just for the styling and great details, unfortunately execution of the design is a fail.

The fit of this jacket is really off..... I sized up from my usual scuba hoodie of size 6 and yet the arms of this jacket is still too tight. I can't even wear a thin shirt with sleeve under it. And the bottom is too wide. It flares out at the waist. looks awful on me.

The arms are tight and the bottom flares out...I don't know if its sized wrong but it looks ridiculous on me and I feel I cannot wear it...sooo disappointed because I really wanted to love this jacket and now the sizes are gone...

I cant even tell you how much I love this hoodie. I am a scuba girl through and through but fell in love with the cute ruffle hood and stripes. I bought it and have never regretted it. It is lighter than a scuba which I love for early morning rides and an over sized hood that I can snuggle into when at the lake for bonfires.

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.
