a barely-there version of our moisture-wicking, four-way stretch Luon® fabric -perfect for hot climates and hot workouts
strong and light, Swift fabric is woven to stand up to whatever we throw at it - we love this technical fabric for its no-bulk, no-nonsense performance
why we made this
We know that change is constant (especially when it comes to the weather), so we designed this jacket to keep us covered. The tight fit makes it a great mid-layer and Swift fabric helps cut the wind chill when we're wearing it on its own. Bonus alert: this jacket is reversible so it's even ready for when we change our minds.

I bought this jacket in plum oh it's so lovely for fall and winter ! Like other people have said they sized up, I'm usually a size 4-6 and I got an 8. This jacket is so comfortable, so luxurious ! Try it you'll love it it !

its ok, sizing is weird
I'm a TTS 6 for all lulu, and I bought an 8 and it just didn't fit right. It was tight in the waist (27) and baggy up top (34C), the arms were long.
Its great its reversible, but the other side doesn't have pockets. The jacket is very warm for what it is, the normal side out gets so hot and doesn't breathe well. So it doesn't work for me as a lightweight jacket, but its so fitting you can't layer. Therefore its not practical.
The sizing is also not consistent, I bought the blue and plum and the plum was different when I lined it up underarm to underarm with the blue. Too bad. It also snags easily.

Average. Meh. Sizing is tricky.
I returned this. After humming & hawing over whether to size up or TTS, I stuck TTS (all my hoodies, jackets, etc I do a size 10...I'm 5'8" 130lbs). I returned the 10, and will not bother re-ordering the 12 (I wanted black which is currently not available in my store).
It was heavier than I expected. I was hoping it was more lightweight.
I have more of an hourglass shape, and this jacket kept sliding up my hips and settling on my waist. Such a pain! I only wore it around the house, and I was constantly pulling it down - it would slide up and bunch around my stomach just under my bust. I am NOT paying $128 for something that is so annoying.
I will admit I did get really excited about how awesome this jacket looked reversed (inside out). BUT what then crushed me? No pockets on the inside, so if you do it reverse you have no pockets. What the heck, LLL?! Even ONE sleek pocket would have been nice, because I do understand bulk was probably a consideration. But LLL is known for lot's of creative storage, so when there was NOTHING I was like "this is the final straw that is making me return this". Sigh.

I am 5'8" 128 lbs typically size 6 in LLL. With this jacket I went UP one size to 8 for comfort factor. It still is very slimming and flattering. Full disclosure: it is too hot in Chicago to be wearing this right now (August), so I do not have a complete review. But I do not foresee any problems with it. I am sure LLL will address quality issues should it come up. I purchased the INKWELL (very dark blue) and it is gorgeous on. I have plenty of black jackets, so this is an excellent alternative. The color is so dark that it works with black pants and it gives off a nice mysterious glow in certain lighting situations that you notice it is not an ordinary black jacket. If you want more contrast, you can reverse the jacket. Just nothing but love for this.

I absolutely love this jacket.
I can see where some people would want to size up, as the fit feels just perfect layered over a single tank, but a bit snug over anything with sleeves.
I stayed TTS- preferring the form fitted look and feel.
Although it's reversible, I've never worn it on the other side- I prefer the coziness and softness of the fleece-like inside; it's like wearing a warm hug!
As with all 'newer generation' Lulu gear, I take extra careful care with it- hand wash cold, line dry, and have never had a problem with pilling or anything else-all mine are wearing and holding up extremely well.
For reference, I'm almost 5'9, 125 lbs, 34C and the 6 is perfect.

love love love
From reading the reviews before buying this jacket I was quite skeptical. However, personally I love this jacket. I did not have to get a size up like others have said. I am 5'7 and 120 pounds. I have wide hips and petite upper body so this jacket absolutely hugs my body. I usually fit in a size 4 and this was the case for this jacket too. Also, I spoke to the sales lady and she said if I did have any problems with the seams I could come return it. It is a must have jacket. They also have a light purple in stores that isn't featured online!

I love this jacket! It is very flattering and very comfortable. I wore it on a rainy day and it worked great to keep to me dry! I love it!

I love this jacket! It is so flattering on. I'm really happy with the improvements made to this jacket. The sleeves are the perfect length. The plum is gorgeous. I'm so happy with this purchase.

Fit, Function, Quality- PERFECTION
This jacket is excellent! One of the best designs from Lulu.
For reference: Im 5'4.5" 115 lbs 34A and I bought a size 6 in this jacket, also I have wide shoulders.
It is just the right length, partially covers the bum, has a fitted silhouette that is figure flattering. The hood is nice n deep. The inner lining is soft n cozy. The only 'upgrade' I would suggest is- add 'cuffins'!!! Please. It would be a great new feature to this already perfect jacket, we really love that for colder weather!!!
Please make more colours- like: deep olive, soot light, charcoal grey (which is a darker grey- almost black but not quite), bumble berry. Add more colour collection to this jacket here. :-)

This is one of my favourite jackets. It fits well, looks good, is nice soft on inside and is cute. I have 3 different colours. Only thing is they are too nice to seat in and expensive.
