Chai Time Pullover II
I would not recommend this sweater at ALL! I ordered it online, and loved it. In fact I loved it so much I went and bought another one. The other day, I wore my original one for the 3RD time, having washed it once at this point, and it's destroyed. It looks terrible. I followed the care directions, hand washed it, and laid it flat to dry. I've probably worn it for a total of 20 hours. I'm terrified to wear my other one and ruin it. It's pilling like crazy, has little strings pulled out on BOTH sides, so I can't even reverse it. This will probably be my last lul purchase.

Great sweater, if there weren't SO many issues!
EVERY issue mentioned about this sweater is TRUE! Yes, fit and feel is amazing! In fact, I ordered another, exactly the same, as soon as I fell in love with the 1st one. Yes, the arms are initially snug, but after about an hour, they stretched out. No idea why Lulu put the stupid hanger thing on ( sweaters should be folded, not hung, first of all) but I cut it off and am now stuck with little ends of the ribbon on the sweater because if I cut it any closer, I'd of cut the sweater. I wore this sweater 4-5 x then washed it, in a bag, on delicate, with Woolite, by itself, and when I took it out to dry flat, there were little elastics (someone in a previous review posted a pic of hers) sticking out. I plucked them all out, and will see if it happens again. Yes, it pills, like crazy, as a matter of fact, pretty much after the first wear. And yes, it pulls VERY easily. I have a pull on my chest that I have no idea how it got there. Lulu, you make ACTIVEWEAR, please stop making beautiful clothes that in order to make it last, you need to literally sit and look pretty! And, seriously, if you remade this sweater the right way next time, the fit and feel is so wonderful, I'd buy it in every color!

This sweater is delish. This review will most likely disappear shortly as the item is almost totally sold out, but I just had to write anyway to send some hugs and kisses... I bought two colors and still want more, Lulu! Make more! Kind of sorry I didn't get the third color too while I had the chance. Worn several times and no snags yet, fingers crossed. I sized down from normal 6 to a 4 for a slightly closer fit than shown on the model.

I really love the fit of the sweater and the color. but i was very disappointed when it's already starting to snag. i've worn it once and it has multiple snags. I bought the last one in a vancouver store so i will not be returning it, but i would definitely not spend that much money again for something that will snag so easily. I also would not recommend anyone else to spend that much money on a product that to me, doesn't feel will last.

A must have
A little snug in the arms but still an overall amazing top. Super cozy. If you want a slouchy fit I suggest you size up

I bought this top online a few weeks ago in the white/silver and thought that it would be white when I got it. It is more of a light grey and I was hoping it would be white like it appears on the model. I also sized up based on recommendation of a few reviews and REGRET that decision. I am normally a size 6-8 depending on fit and I actually should have ordered a 6 (5'4", 138lbs, 32B). The mid-section is baggy, the arms are tight, but the length is just right. If I had gotten my regular 6 or 8 I would not be able to get my arms in as the 10 was incrediably tight.
I would recommend this to other people ONLY if you can try it on before you buy it. I was truly disappointed with this. It looks great with leggings or yoga pants and you can dress it up.
The quality of the sweater is good, I have no ripping, tearing, no holes and no piling as other people have noticed on theirs, but to be honest I have only worn it once. In order to wear the "white" side I had to take the tag off and I wish I hadn't because I would have returned it for a smaller size.

I love it but...
When I first bought this pullover I was obsessed with it and wanted to buy one in every color! I bought a size 2 in the grey and it fits so well and is so flattering on! I've worn it a few times as a comfy sweater around the house and even wore out for dinner paired with nice black pants, a very multi versatile sweater! Two things I will say about the sweater that were a little discouraging and made me re evaluate if I wanted to buy more of them online was that 1) After only wearing it once I noticed some piling under the arms of the sweater 2) It's supposed to be reversible which is great, but the way the tag is stitched in it makes it really hard to cut the whole tag off and the fabric is so delicate that when I did try to remove it the fabric tore a little which was a bummer.

I got 2 of these sweaters (the black/coal and the gray) on the sale rack and love them! The length is perfect, they're soft, and the perfect length. I tried on all 3 colors, but the white/silver one just didn't fit as well as the 2 that I got.

Oh so soft but snags too easily
I sized down from my usual 6 to a 4 and found the fit very flattering and not too tight in the arms as others have mentioned. The draping in the midsection was particularly nice for those of us without washboard abs. The material is deliciously soft and comfy! However snags occur all too easily and often - even some of the sweaters in store already showed loose threads. I'd be too paranoid to wear this anywhere unfortunately.

Super Cute Sweater
I bought this sweater in the blue and black, LOVE them both. At 5"11 150 lbs I got the 10 and it is perfect.I have only worn the blue, washed it in Woolite, and laid flat to dry and it seems to have shrunk a bit. Other than that little disappointment, I love that I can wear them with leggings and boots or jeans. I wear my Cool Racerback tank under it for a cute contrast.
