Right As Rain Jacket
Being longer in the back than the front, and the adjustable synching at the waist makes this jacket really stand out. I'm seeing reviews stating that it runs large, but I'd say TTS for sure. I'm a 10-12 lulu jacket and went with the 12 as I have a muscular build, and its perfect. Except for the long arms which you roll up once no probs. Had I chosen the 10 the arms and armpit area would have been much too tight. If you have either a broad back, big boobs (D), built shoulders/arms, and/or all of the above get a larger size. The only thing is the bottom flares out a little more than I'd like, but then I suppose that's what gives it it's girlie look. Oh, also it attracts dust/hair. It's a great coat that will be the only one you'll ever need!

Fits true to size, I am generally a 10/12 and I ordered a 12 in this and love it! A 10 would be more form fitting and flattering in the bod, but would definitely not fit in the arms! They are tighter, but fit well in the 12 for me!

Perfect rain jacket
Love this rain jacket. I find the coat fits true to size. I'm usually a size 10 in Lulu pants, 12 in some slimmer tops and chose the 12 in this jacket. It fits perfectly, and a hoodie will fit underneath quite nicely. My only issue is with the zip. Easy to zip up, a bit trickier to take off but not a deal breaker.

Great runaround in rain jacket
I'm so happy LuLu brought this jacket back! I've wanted one for a long time. It's comfortable and the length is just right. I love the deep pockets too. It is definitely running a size big so order down a size.

Great jacket...But Lulu sizing is all over the map
I ordered this jacket online, it was shipped SUPER fast, rcvd it in 3 days! Colour is great, material soft and seems very durable. The draw strings in the waist are nice to give a boxy rain jacket some shape. The fit seems nice but the catch? Lulu sizing is ALL over the map. I used to be able to order a 10 in shirts, jackets you name it and it fit great. Now if I order online to avoid being disappointed I have to order 2 sizes a 10 and a 12 and make a trip to the store to return one. I got my 10 and 12 in this jacket and surprise, I'm an 8! I love your products Lulu but the sizing is beyond frustrating especially seeing most things I buy seem to sell out online in sizes 8/10/12 in a few days and rarely can be found in store. Please be consistent like you used to!!!! :)

I recently ordered this as a celebratory splurge and the jacket just arrived. It is GORGEOUS! Even my husband commented and he doesn't usually notice that type of thing. This jacket is so flattering and beautiful it (almost) feels like wearing a piece of art. I am actually looking forward to rainy dog walks in the fall!

Please bring it back!
I loved the fit of this jacket in store but decided to hold off and buy it after my next pay check.
Now it is completely sold out in my size :( Unfortunately as I have not worn this item out I can not attest to it's function. Please bring this one back lulu!

Pros and Cons
This jacket fits beatifully, has a lovely flattering style, and protects amazingly from rain. I love the jacket. I would rate this as a 5/5 if it weren't for the fact that it stains easily and permanently.
I have the Cashew coloured one. I wear it to the office only and just regular wear over about 2 months has caused it to become very dirty looking.
Even the strap from my purse has scuffed it I can't remove the scuffs. I have tried a few things to clean it, but with no success. I really wish I'd gotten a dark colour.

Help with bike grease removal
I just bought this jacket and I love it. I especially love the bottom up zipper that allows me to bike in this coat. Unfortunately, the only colour available was the light cream and after a couple short rides, I've managed to get bike grease all over the coat. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can get it off?

Worth the money
I've been looking for a rain coat for several years and decided to splurge when I saw this one come available. I'm usually a size 4 or 6, and went for a 6 in the coat. (5'3", 120 lbs). It's a bit big, but I wanted to be able to wear a Scuba under it if it was a bit chilly. If I had purchased the 4, I don't think I would have been able to.
Over all I'm happy with the coat and have no complaints. I'm sure it will last me for well over 10 years. Only problem is now I want it in the cream color as well. :)
