Black tencel fades bad!
I have this sweater in black from a previous release and love the design of it. However I found the tencel faded really bad despite following the washing instructions. So now the front is black and the back is a really faded black and they just don't match which makes it look tacky. I also have a black wrap from lulu that is tencel and found the same thing happened to that. The tencel sure makes my lulu clothes look a lot more worn than they really are.

This sweater was a birthday gift. I fell in love with it... It was flattering and so soft.. I am disappointed as after two washes and hang drying as per all my lulu items I noticed the cuff is separated from the sleeve... This sweater was a lot of money.. Have never had an issue with Lululemon items previously...

love design but faulty fabric
this sweater is beautifully designed and fits well according to size. however, it snags for no reason. i washed it in the sink on its own to before i wore it. as soon as i put it on i noticed a thread hanging out. rather disappointing. i gave it one star for design and another just because...
as a loyal customer since lululemon was initially introduced to the US market and in possession of close to a hundred pieces, i have to say that details and quality has been suffering of late. i hope lululemon will work harder to live up to its' past.

really thin/fragile compared to previous release
Tried this on in store... I have a fossil grey one from the previous release (2012) and so when I saw this was coming out again I was so excited to grab it in black and white as well. Unfortunately, the knit front and sleeve material feels way thinner and cheaper than my old one. There were little picks and pulls all over each one I tried on already, just from being in the store. It was also really sheer in all 3 colours, and looser in the arms than my older one (maybe I'm the only one that liked the tight fitting arms, since I have a slim upper body). Really disappointing... guess I'll be hounding the previous release in black and white elsewhere.

Beautiful from the front
This pullover fits beautifully and looks gorgeous from the front. The fabric in the back, however, is very wrinkly. The pullover looks very baggy, big and unflattering from the back, even if I got a size 2. I bought it online, so unfortunately I had to return it.

If you want compliments, buy this sweater. The price was a bit tough to eat but I gave it a whirl and was not disappointed. It is very comfortable and soft. The material at the back does wrinkle a bit but no one ever noticed since they were concentrated on the nice v-neck lines at the front and draped back. I have worn it with the Power Y Tank and the Energy Bra - both of which were big hits. Sleeves are snug but not "tight" and the drape at the waist is loose but feminine. This sweater is a perfect piece for Fall and works exceptionally well with both jeans or something more casual like Studio Pants. If Lulu made it in more colours, I would totally buy it but there's only so many shades of grey/taupe I can buy. Lack of colours would be my only complaint. You won't be disappointed with this sweater. For reference: 5'8", 145lbs, athletic build.

torn, then bonded for life!
Okay, I snatched this up quick online so as not to miss out. I was apprehensive about it from the start but couldn't resist because I loved the concept/design.
Upon arrival, it sat in my closet (tags intact) for about a week. Then I ventured to wear it (ironically) on the coldest day ever in August in Ontario!!! It kept me from freezing at a concert on the Toronto Islands so its a keeper. After that I fell in love with it and didn't want to take it off! But it would otherwise be too warm for a typical summer day. Def a Fall sweater!
Based on reviews, I ordered my usually reliable 8 which fit as hoped - tts. Arms aren't tight and I do have some meat on mine! It is boxy or over sized in the body area but its supposed to be considering there is no back panel holding it together. Material is thicker than Chai but oh so soft and cozy! Yes, it wrinkles but the front is delicious.

I loved everything about this sweater! I received it in the mail and I couldn't wait to try it on! I put the sweater on for five minutes it fit perfect I didn't even find the forearms that snug so I took the tags off. I put the sweater back on later last night to wear for the evening and the seams completely let go in the arms, I don't know if it was just a glitch in my sweater but if I'm paying 118 for a sweater I expect it to last a little more than a day

Had lots of potential
I order this sweater as soon as I saw it online. When it arrived (quickly), I tried it on and was surprisingly disappointed. I ordered a 4, which fit "fine", but was just a little weird. It was really tight in the arms; I am muscular, but not overly so... And, it didn't taper in near the waist, so it looked very boxy. Since it wasn't that flattering for the amount of money I had spent on it, I took it back. It was a very nice material (albeit wrinkly in back), and I really do wish it fit me better, but it just didn't.

Love this sweater
This sweater is awesome! I was a little nervous since this was the first sweater I have bought from lulu, but I'm am totally in love with it. It is so soft and flowly. The back opening is so cute. It is awesome to have a sweater that you can where to yoga and out to dinner.
