Forthright 1/2 Zip
Very comfortable and warm
I really like this shirt for running (or just wearing around). It is nice and warm, but not too hot either. The length is good (not too short) and the elastic at the bottom keeps the cold out. The arms are long which I like and I especially like the thumb holes, I think all running shirts should have these! Only strange thing is how you can open the zipper from the bottom? I got this shirt as a gift and would buy more if they were about half the price.

I love this pullover! Very comfortable and figure flattering. This ran tts for me...I'm 5'8'..135lbs. The rulu fabric is very soft against your skin. Truly a MUST buy!!

Great top... minus the sensor that was attached!
Received my Forthright 1/2 Zip in the mail today and it is just as lovely in person as expected. The fit is perfect - I am a 36DD with a longer than average torso and I ordered the 12. It fits TTS for LLL size 12 tops. It hits just below my pelvis and covers about 1/2 of my bum. My rating of "good"/4-stars is due to the fact that it arrived with a store sensor attached! This was one of many items in an online order totaling $600+... imagine my surprise upon opening my box and seeing this! You'd think for the amount of $ spent this time around I'd get a little more attention than my more frequent $39-$100 orders. It wouldn't be that big of a deal but my closest LLL store is about 1 hour away. Thankfully I'm pretty good with a pair of pliers because I was able to remove the sensor without damaging the garment. Hopefully next time the warehouse will take some more time in putting together my shipment no matter the total!

Love this top!
I was surprised by this one...read the great reviews and decided to try it out. I bought the black in size 4 and LOVE it! It is comfortable, fits great - not too baggy and is very flattering. I only wish that I could track down a grey one now! Please bring this back in more colours!

so glad I went in and tried it on
I was a bit hesitant when I saw this pullover online with the elastic at the bottom but I was in the store the other day and decided to try it on and I fell in love with the cut and the feel of the pullover. It is super soft and cozy feeling, I don't like being to hot but it was perfect. I got the black and I wear it with a purple In the Flow tank. I an 5'3" 121lbs with muscular arms and I bit of a belly post 3 babies and I got my usual 6. I love the elastic at the bottom. Not too tight if that is what you are worried about like me. The elastic is just right and sits nicely on my bum. It doesnt cling to my stomach. The shoulder and uppers are are perfect too and not too tight which I hate. I am so glad I went in and tried it on, I think it is now my fav top from lulu after my Tea Lounge Pullover.

Good Investment for a Versatile Top
Excellent top for layering during runs. I ran in it today and could not have been happier. Temps were chilly when I started (35-40 degrees F) so I was completely zipped up; after I warmed up, I unzipped the neck and tucked the cuffs in. Rulu makes for a cozy, velvety feel and I was never too hot or too cold.
I would say the top is on the blousy side. The arms are fitted but not tight. I take a 6 or 8 in Lulu tops and went with the 6. An 8 would have been too big and probably not as flattering. The elastic waist/hem is not too taught so it never rode up when I ran. I think it actually helps the drape of the fabric so it flatters your curves.
I wore this to work with jeans last Friday so it is a great "to-and-from" piece as well. Overall, a comfy, technical, versatile top for running and living.
I am 5'6", medium/athletic-build, and fluctuate between 145-150 pounds.

Love this pullover
I do not have any negatives about this pullover...it's so soft. It's really flattering and a great fit. I normally don't like a gathered waistband but it just works with this pullover. I would say that this runs true to size or possibly size down. I like my clothing a little looser, so I went with my normal size for lulu tops. Get it before it sells out. I hope that they make more in more colors.

too tight across the shoulders
I ordered the stripe version. I was a little disappointed, I really wanted to love this. In the picture, it appears to be more of a nylon material, but it actually is really, really soft, like a blanket. I can see this pilling big time just due to the nature of the fabric. For that reason, it just is not worth $98. I ordered my usual size and it fit perfectly everywhere EXCEPT across the shoulders. I actually love the hem on this, it makes the top really flattering. I find everything I have from LuLu to be really well made and good quality, but I can't justify the price on this top.

Seriously Amazing <3 LOVE!
I wear some sort of athletic clothing almost everyday. This is already one of my most favorites. I always love a collar so it got me with that immediately. And when I saw the Bali breeze I couldn't stop checking the website debating if I needed another top of this style. Well I waited too long and missed out on my usual 6 (I'm 5'4; 140) so ordered the 8 in BB and the 6 in the gray. 2 days later I had them both and have worn everyday since. The 6 is perfect with a CRB underneath. The rulu is so soft and cozy. I love the waistband and how it isn't tight around the belly. The 8 still fits well but I will be able to layer with that one a little easier. I went for a run in the early morning (SoCal so not too chilly) and it felt great. I really do love both of these tops and am debating on the black. If they get more colors I'm going to be broke. You will not regret this purchase! Thank you LuLu <3
