Post Practice Cardigan
It's like wearing a hug all day long...
This is the most comfy sweater I have ever owned and I get compliments every time I wear it. At first I was a little hesitant to pay $138 for a sweater, but the moment I tried it on I was in love. It's warm enough for a dreary, fall day yet is breathable so you aren't sweating if the sun comes out. You can dress this sweater up or down. As I type this review I am sitting at work in my Post Practice Cardigan, with skinny jeans and ballet flats. At home I pair it with PJ pants or my Lulu Wunder Under Pants. It's my go-staple and probably should buy another one.

Cozy, breathable, perfect cardigan
This cardigan was one of the first things I purchased at full price from lulu. I tried to avoid getting too into lulu stuff but I had to have the gray/black cardigan when I saw it so I used an upcoming flight to justify it. Although it was summer I used it nearly everyday. It was cozy and perfect for over my pjs or at the airport. Since then the fall has come and I bought the ivory and navy/black versions as well. I wear one of them everyday at work and someone compliments them everyday as well.
I cannot recommend enough.
I am 5'2'', 105#, I wear a 2 in looser tops and 4 in tight tops. I purchased the cardigans in a 2.

Perfect for after savasana!
If you are considering purchasing this and the price scares you, know that it's worth every penny. This cardi is simply amazing. Soft, comfy, quality made, and perfect for after savasana!
I read other reviews that said it ran large, but also love a big comfy sweater, so I purchased it in my normal top size and am pleased. For reference I am 5'7", 145 lbs. and the 6 is like wearing a perfect, but still figure showing knit- but honestly I could have sized down to make the arms fit a bit tighter.

Love, love, love!
I've gotten so many compliments on the Post Practice Cardigan. It's comfy, it's versatile and it's great for those chilly mornings and fall days. It's very long and covers my bum, so leggings look great with it. I'm 5'7" with an hourglass-type shape and the medium fits perfectly.

Best sweater for all shapes and sizes
I bought this sweater on a whim, not knowing if I'd like it or not. When it came in the mail this morning, I hesitantly tried it on. Too my surprise, it was the comfiest thing I have ever put on. I thought the Yogini 5 year long sleeve tee was the best lulu item I'd ever bought, but I was wrong (FYI I own a couple hundred Lulu items). I bought it in Heathered Oatmeal since I don't own anything in that color and I sized down one size (and probably could have gone down 2 sizes). It is even great for pregnant moms who want to stay in shape due to the buttons (and its a good before, during, and after piece). This piece is perfect for any body shape or size and I highly recommend it to anyone. You won't regret it!!!

best re-release ever
the first time this sweater came out i bought it in cream and black. i just bought a third in ghost/black. while it is not uncommon for me to buy multiple colors of lulu items i fall in love with, this is by far my favorite lulu sweater i own. i'm 5'3'', 120, and usually wear a size 4. i sized up to a 6 and i'm really glad i did. if i was a little taller i think i could have even done an 8. i LOVE the baggy, loose, cozy feeling of this, and the big collar is awesome to throw a vinyassa scarf over/under. i'm not too big on the inkwell/black combo, but would buy it in straight navy if they had it. the salmon color from the first release was great too- but i thought two was enough at that time. i love when lulu does re-releases- especially for those of us size 4/6- those sizes sell out so quickly!! thanks lulu for yet another amazing product.

Must-Have for Fall
I didn't get this sweater the first time it appeared in stores and was kicking myself afterwards, so as soon as I saw this again I snapped it up. Definitely size down--it's designed to be bulky and cozy but you don't want to be swimming in it--so that the sleeve length and shoulders fit better. I love snuggling into the collar on a cool evening or leaving the sweater open as I cool down after yoga class. The pockets are big enough to fit keys, phone, etc--you don't need to bring anything else with you when you're out running errands! Great quality, worth every penny.

I skipped even trying this sweater first time around and then on this re-release, the marled black/ghost caught my eye so I went in to try it on. I loved it! Mostly because it is cotton. I love the way it drapes when it hangs open, the deep pockets and yes...the thumb holes. . I contemplated my normal size but in the end purchased a size down. I think either would have been fine. I know I will get a lot of wear out of this. It looks good with everything. Ended up with the oatmeal because I don't have anything in that color and I was worried the black might wash out with time. This is something I would love to own in every color.

If I could marry a piece of clothing...
I love this sweater more than I should love any inanimate object. Its comfortable and cute at the same time. I get lots of compliments on it and have barely taken it off since I bought it. By the way, its August in Southern California, so that's saying something. It does fit a little big, which is how it should. I bought my regular size 4 even though I considered a 2, the only difference was the fit of the arms. My arms are a little buff, so that clinched the deal on my getting the 4. I can't wait to wear this through all the fall months until people only think I own one sweater. I bought the cream because I figured it wouldn't have a chance to look washed out and it would match everything. You won't regret this purchase!

Comfy and cute
I bought this cardigan late last winter in that beautiful salmon color. Wore it tons and tons. Comfy. Went with more than I originally thought it would. Get lots if compliments on it. Have traveled with it several times and agree with other reviewer that it can be blanket like particularly when trying to get comfortable on a long plane ride. Stylish cardigan in the cold airport. Comfy blankie while
trying to nap on the plane. Bottom line when I saw it released this year other colors immediately bought the cream one. May go back for the inkwell...
