Post Practice Cardi
Comfy but DON'T WASH!
I loved this big over-sized cardigan when I tried it on in the store. I was torn between a 6 and 8 which are the two sizes I am normally between, I went with the 6 and am glad I did. I love the length and that it covers the bum when walking around in tights. The plum peach color is fantastic and I love it for spring! The big pockets are nice and I like the snaps. The only thing I don't like is when I washed it (which looking back there was no need to wash it) it shrunk, but not all over, just in length. I did not put it in the dryer, I hung it out to air dry and I washed it in cold water on delicate cycle. So now my nice long cardigan is a shriveled short box. I hung it up on a hanger hoping it will stretch itself back out! The end of the sleeves also lost their shape and are flaring out now. Also, I am not a fan of this dropped shoulder seam Lulu does on a lot of their sweaters but at least on this over-sized sweater its not as noticeable. Besides that the cardigan is a great layer and looks really cute.

LOVELY thanks lulu!
Wow yes at first glance looks a bit boring but it's so warm and cosy and comfy great to use for work, casual everything!
Fits true to size I am 161cm 58kg normally buy a 6 in tops and 8 in jackets but bought a 6 in this and it fits perfectly!
I bought the light grey and I love it!
You just have to be careful with the buttons I think they will easily tear off the knitted stitching if you pull too hard!

I watched this for a while and bought it on sale. I got the 8 which is what I wear for the most part in Lulu tops. It's a little big and slouchy but over all I love it. It's so soft and comfortable. I can't wait to curl up in it on a rainy day. I'm not usually an orange person with my coloring but this is a really pretty shade

I absolutely loved this sweater! It does run big so I bought a size smaller than normal. It's super comfortable and did fit great...until I washed it. The salesperson suggested washing it on cold and laying flat to dry, which I did and it still shrunk, a lot. It's considerably shorter and the sleeves are too short to even use the thumb holes. Pretty disappointing for a $138 purchase.

Lovin' my Grammie Gear!
I was pretty hesitant when I purchased this initially. I never try any Lulu on anymore as I cannot tell you the last time I was disappointed. So, thinking I'd reached my first regret, I donned this grammie gear and instantly fell in LOVE with it! I use it almost daily; pre and post workouts, dress it up for work and as a warm layer for business dinners. I bought it in black (the only color my store had) without realizing others were available.

I love this cardigan I really do.
I sized down for it and it's still a loose comfortable fit.
The material is nice but it is not too thick.
My only downfall with this cardigan would be within 3 weeks of having it the loop of material to hook around the inside button came off completely - considering I wasn't using this function I thought it was strange, but not a problem for me anyway.

I purchased this sweater on January 17th at my local lulu store. I was so excited about this purchase because I had been searching for an oversized boyfriend sweater and this SEEMED perfect. I wore it that night and WAS completely thrilled with my new purchase. I have worn (never washed) the sweater a total of 4 times and within a month and a half I noticed a hole on the top left shoulder where the seam is. I am VERY dissatisfied with the overall wear of this product from lulu, especially since I spent $138.00. I expected to wear this sweater for many seasons to come, but I was thoroughly disappointed. I would not recommend this product to anyone. Poor quality, poor purchase.

OMG 2-for-1 deal
This sweater is Ah-mazing! I say it's 2-for-1 because it is perfect for pre- or post-workout, but I was also able to dress it up with skinny jeans and cute flats for a fun date night outfit. I have the coral color which is perfect for spring and "something different" for wearing to the office. Well done, lulu!

Love Love Love!
This is the Greatest Sweater! As Far as fit goes the arms are a tad tight but otherwise great! I got the Gray to start with and went back 5 minutes later and bought the Plum Peach! Great Quality Material.. I will buy more if additional colors come out! Thank you as always for a great product!

Stylish Mister Rogers
At first, I thought that this cardigan was a little too Mister Rogers for me, but since it is getting such great reviews, I had to try it. The reviews are founded--this sweater is a wonderful, versatile piece! It looks great over a Power Y with Wunder Under pants as casual wear, and I can even dress it up with slacks for the office. It is very cozy and warm and has thumbholes, which I love.
I typically wear a 6 but sized down to a 4 based on the customer reviews. The fit is still oversized but not overly so in the 4.
The knit is pretty loose, so it is subject to little pulls here and there, but they are easy enough to fix with a little crochet hook.
