What is everyone complaining about!?
When I saw this, I fell in love. When I read the reviews, I was quite skeptical. They said it was unflattering, too tight in the chest & arms. I noticed mosy people complaining and saying they were returning it was listed as "petite". That I am noy. I'm 5'7", a C cup, & have hips. I wear an 8 in lulu tops. I bought a 10 recently in the Nice Asana jacket. So when I saw this hoodie on "We Made Too Much" in the Navy and green stripe I wanted, I decided to order it in a 10. So so so glad I did. It is so comfy and warm. It's my new fave hoodie to wear whenever- running errands, to and from yoga, or lounging around when I am cold.

Happy with this purchase
This is yummy and cosy inside and outside the pullover. Is it a little boxy in the front? Yes. Is it so cute with leggings? Yes! I had a hard time deciding about size. I'm between a 6/8 in lulu. I went with an 8 and it fits well in the shoulders. I'm 5'8, 140.

Nice, heavy sweatshirt
Body is loose, but arms are more fitted. The materials is a nice and heavy, which is good for extra layering or on its own. The underside of the arms is ribbed, which adds extra stretch, but also helps to keep the arms fitted. I like the hi-lo concept - I have a small torso, so longer tunic-like items tend to really dwarf me. Mostly, I love the adjustable cowl; I have another cowl sweatshirt that tends to hang odd, but the material gives this cowl structure and the drawstring allows for versatility. Only 4 stars because this seems pricey compared to other similar items.

I bought this on a whim in the string bean/inkwell color when I found it on sale at my local store. It's turned out to be my favorite sweatshirt. The color combo is actually very cute, and it fits better than I think the pictures online show - much less boxy than I feared, the length is great, and it's perfect across the shoulders - surprisingly flattering, actually. It is incredibly warm without the bulk or stiffness of something like the Scuba, and the pocket is warm and really soft inside. Perfect for snuggling into.

Love this sweatshirt!
This Avenue pullover sweatshirt is the new love of my lll collection! i really like the navy/green color combination, it look cute when put it on, has enough room to layer something underneath. very think, a little stiff but not rigid. there are like 4 different ways of how you want the collar to be. I actually got two of this, one for me and one for my mom! She loves it too!!!

Perfect Winter Pullover
The French terry is substantial so it has weight to it. The collar is tall enough to cover my neck, so don't need a scarf, the kangaroo pocket has a little iphone pocket that's secured, so the phone doesn't move around. It's TTS with room for a thin layer (Swiftly) and butt covering without being tight at all around my hips. I really like the fabric and design of this sweatshirt, got it in black and white, same two colors I have the Exhalation Pullover in, which is significantly lighter and bit softer and in which I sized up to get the same look/fit the Avenue has in my TTS. I will definitely recommend this pullover, one of the best lll has come out with in a long time (and I have bought lots of different styles in the last 4 years: Karma, Meditate, Voyage, Exhalation, and now the Avenue are my favorites)

This sweatshirt is awesome. Really warm, and fits perfectly. I love the detail around the neck. Worth every penny, I now want it in every color.

I know that Lulu has caught some heat recently about less-than-perfect quality of their products. However, I must say, every time I purchase a product, I am 100% pleased with the quality. This sweatshirt is my most recent buy, and I love it! So many thoughtful/useful details, great fabric, and is all around well made!

A word of caution
I tried on the Avenue pullover today. As I was on my way to the gym, I wore a luon tank. The white inner fleece stuck all over the luon. In addition, the top was very stiff and rigid, and I could feel a cold draft around my waist, since the stiff material does not conform to the body. The ribbons at the neck also looked weird.

Tight on arms and chest
I ordered this top in the grey size 6 and it was too loose so I ordered the only color that had a size 4 and was on sale - the green bean and it's wayyy smaller through the chest and arms now I stuck with it. I hate your final sale policy as I know this would sell as it's out of stock now. FYI I am between 4-6 on tops 5'5 120lbs
