Too large, otherwise excellent quality
I purchased this jacket due to the very positive reviews when it randomly increased in stock last week. I liked the idea of wearing it to the gym and out at night over dresses in the colder months.
I am usually a 2 in looser tops at lulu but I decided to try it in a 4 since that was the smallest option. I liked the entire jacket in terms of length, fabric, quality, and style. However, the shoulders were a little too broad for me and it looked poorly fitted. I tried to talk myself into keeping it, but I know I would feel awkward in it. If it fit I wouldn't hesitate to keep it.
I am 5'2'', 105#, I bought a 4. I wear a 2 in looser tops and a 4 in lulu bras.

Black one on sale at local lulu
It was waiting for me- thin, stylish, sexy, elegant, versatile, wrinkle resistant, soft and comfy. Simple yet expensive. Sale made it worth the money. Thank you, lulu!

This jacket is beautiful. Fits TTS. Arms are the perfect length, I'm 5'9. The fabric is incredibly soft. Wish I had got the pants too! The jacket is very stylish.

Drapes beautifully and is comfortable and flattering. Love the sheer details. Can pair this well with jewelry and easily wear for evening wear. When zipped to the top, it is a little stiff so the jacket had the tendency to ride up. But not a deal breaker for me. Surprised it isn't sold out.

New type of jacket for lulu
Impressed w this new jacket from lulu as I'm tired of the scuba style (which doesn't work for curvy gals). I ordered this jacket in size 6 and for reference I'm 135 5,6" and 32DD. Agree with other posts that smaller bust gals could order down.
Jacket is nice and slimming and mesh detail is subtle when you wear it. Great quality too. Like I said it doesn't feel like the typical lulu fabric or style which is great to have something new and different.

The Noir Jacket is OK. Not extraordinary though. Based on the other reviews, I was expecting it to be beyond ordinary. It's well made and the material drapes nicely-- the mesh is an interesting detail. It's a dressier option than the other lulu jackets and would be perfect for a light something to throw on for a coolish summer night. It would not be suitable for fall if you wanted a warm jacket on a walk. I probably will be sending it back. For the price, I have to love it and I just don't. It really isn't anything special. For reference I am 114 lbs, 5'4 and 36A. I purchased a size 6 and it fits well.

The non girly girl's answer to a perfect jacket
First of all how is this not sold out yet! Amazing quality and on trend with the mesh panels and perfect cut. I hate when I see people wear their workout gear as going out outfits but I will make an exception for this piece. I'm 5 foot 6 and about 125 and the 4 fit perfectly. It is a shorter style and the baseball styling is everywhere for Fall. Love! Keep making these fantastic edgier pieces in dark colours. I'm not a pink wearing kind of girl :)

Keeping it relaxed in the city...
Wore this yesterday afternoon with noir bra and relaxed running pants. Absolutely love this jacket, I have a VPL hoodie and this jacket has a better cut and the quality is great. It's a very sleek stylish minimal look, subtly sexy but durable enough that it can take the everyday life of being active. Most active hoodies go in at the waist, I some some lulus that do that too but I'm kinda over that "hourglass" cut so this is a great option to have.. i felt like my personal style and my active style finally came together... I usually order 4s but I'm thinking 6's are better... it's been a few years since I've been this excited about a lulu purchase (and I'm a regular)... have to say the noir bras are pretty lovely too. Kudos to the designers on this one.
This jacket in a 6 is perfect for me, shoulders line up and hangs freely. I'm 5'5" 120pds, 34A.

Power of hot and hip!
In the last few years lulu had definitely suffered some quality issues. It is not the case with this jacket. The jacket is absolutely amazing - stylish, light and structured. I could see wearing it out and not just to the gym. It's very slimming! I am 5.6 34D and 130 lbs - 6 fit the best. I think if you have smaller chest you may want to go with a 4. Again. Totally amazing!
