Post Practice Cardi
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.

Seems boring but it's not
Yes, it's another cardigan but it's not! I love the fit and it's just so cozy. It's slimming yet roomy which is hard to achieve. I love mine. Would love more staple colors like a cadet blue!

Down Dogs :)
I checked back daily for over a month and they finally made more. Black in 4, I'm usually a 6, was perfect. I can wear 2 layers underneath easily and love the grandma gone chic style. Haven't taken it off. May murder one of my dogs that keeps trying to snag it when she jumps up( Sit, Ubu SIT). But I wont hold lulu accountable for that.

Amazing comfy sweater
I purchased this sweater as me and my fiancé were heading to up-state New York for a delayed Christmas visit. I was anticipating it to be cold, so I was looking for a layer to wear over leggings and a long-sleeve shirt. I wore it on the plane there, and back, and will be buying another one. The best purchase I have made from Lulu yet.

Love the make of this sweater. I have gotten tons of use out of it. Beautiful knit and button details. It will transition well from winter to spring. Purchased the black in a 4 and it is still a little roomy. I am normally a size 6 so I would definitely recommend sizing down.

super cozy sweater
I love sweaters and I am pretty hard on my clothing but this sweater is amazing quality, in my humble opinion. I first bought the silver spoon to wear and test run to see how it held up and I was so impressed I just bought the black one as well. I am 5'7 and about 125lbs and I bought the size 4 in both and it is still loose enough to be layered but fine with just a t shirt underneath. I love it because it is bum covering and I can wear my yoga pants with them and they are so comfortable. I love these as much as my gratitude jackets and that is saying a lot!!!

Comfy and stylish
I first saw this at my local lululemon store, and was hesitant to try it on because it looked baggy. I'm glad I gave it a chance because I am definitely in love with it! It's so warm and cozy. Since the fit is looser than what I normally would wear, I used a skinny belt around the waist and it looks lovely. I've gotten many compliments on this piece. This cardi is going to be a staple piece in my wardrobe for the winter season.

Wanted to love it
I wanted to love this sweater, I needed a nice long black cardi to wear with my WUP and leggings. I read the reviews and went with it since they sounded positive (I did size down). Within the first few minutes of trying it on at home it snagged a few times, then it shrunk when I washed it and the cuffs feel very flimsy compared to the rest of the garment (which is a thicker material). As with other reviewers had it been available in a smaller size when I received it I probably would have tried to exchange but it was already out of stock. I really wanted to love this sweater but I just don't think it's going to hold up.

I was debating which size to get. I wear Lulu jacket size 8 mostly, but sometimes go to size 10 if I prefer wearing it roomy. For this cardi, I was not sure to get 6 or 8 based on the previous reviews. I ended up choosing size 8. This cardi drapes perfectly. Even you wear it oversized, it won't make you look bulky. I tried both size 6 and 8 in the store. Size 6 sleeves are tight but size 8 is perfect to me. Its thickness is just right, and I can wear it from work to class. So, like most of the previous reviews said, don't hesitate to get it!

I fell in love with the cardigan in the store. I purchased it in the light grey color. It is extremely warm and comfortable and I love the loose fit. However, the second time I wore it I looked down and saw that one of the buttons was already starting to come off. I have always been a fan of lululemon but I have noticed that as time goes by their clothing seems to become cheaper and lack in quality while the prices continue to increase. I don't mind paying more money for good quality products but when I pay good money for something and it instantly starts to fall apart it becomes a little frustrating. That being said, if they could find a way to make this clothing item a little more durable, I would absolutely recommend it as it is an awesome sweater!
