Dance Studio Jacket III
Great jacket, fall 2014 sizing is inconsistent
I love my dance studio jackets. I have 7 or 8 of them. When the new colours came out this fall I rushed in and grabbed a couple. I was really frustrated to find that the sizing is not consistent this time around. I am 5'10" and 150. I am a tts 6 but wear an 8 in the DSJ. The first 8 that I got was baggy through the bust, so I ordered a 6. It was too tight. So I went to the store and found an 8 with the correct fit.
Then, yesterday, I saw the new berry DSJ at the Scarborough store in an 8 and it had the same baggy through the bust fit. Someone had obviously ordered it online and then returned it. I suspect they found the same issue that I did.
I now have a size 8 purple fog that I am happy with, but it took more work than it should have to get it.

Bought my first dance jacket after one of my friends recommended it and I absolutely love it! However I did find that the jacket run small compared to other lulu products that I've purchased.

dsj one of my favorites!!
The DSJ 3 is one of my favorite jackets. I have one in black, one in bali breeze and my latest one is in purple fog. I love how the jacket is very flattering on and I love the different material. It is a lighter jacket- which has been perfect for the weather right now. I like that the jacket has thumbholes and deep pockets. I am in between a 4 and 6 and I chose the 6 for all of my jackets. For reference I am 5'5" 130 pounds.

Great Jacket and Worth The Price
I'm a frugal shopper and really did not want to spend over 100 on a hoodie, but after trying and returning black hoodies from 3 other stores, this one is the winner. The fit is fantastic, it's so cozy, and the sleeves are actually long enough for my crazy long arms. I'm 5'9" and 135 lbs and usually a 6 or 8 at Lululemon. I got this in an 8. I tried on the 8 and 10 in store and the 10 was too big in the chest. They didn't have a 6, but the 8 is probably as snug as I'd want to go in the waist. I think the plum and blue colors are so pretty, but for the price I felt like I should get a basic color that would be worn all the time, so I got the black. It was the right choice. It matches all my workout pants and pretty much works with everything. Oh, and the pockets are deep and the hood is functional and actually fits tightly to your head which is super convenient if it's raining or you're out running.

Must have piece
Got this in bumble berry- the color so fantastic that I couldn't resist. Plus, in my opinion, color looks particularly striking on this kind of fabric. I doubt I will ever wear it as a reversible and I feel it is kinda silly to reverse to basically identical color, but it is so soft inside! The fit is flattering, but size up one size. Love, love, love this jacket. They never go to sale, even in boring colors- thus hurry up and grab one before they are gone or before the latest trend- sneaky price increase by lulu.....
Quality, shape, comfort- wise- it is one of the best lulu pieces ever.

Had my eyes on this for a longggg time...
I caved and finally tried this on in the store....after eyeing it online for years....
First tried it in the purple fog (which was surprisingly flattering and an amazing colour) ended up leaving the store without it (mostly due to $$), and the 2nd time I came back to try it on they had the blue available in the store!!! I bought it anyhow this time, but still have the tags on it, and haven't worn it yet...
I tried my usual 6 in lulu tops and then the 8, as it is very form fitting...but the 8 wasn't as good on me due to my smaller bust-line in comparison to my larger hip-line. The 8 just looked bunchy in the bust/underarm area on me, so I bought the 6. In the cooler months, a long sleeve shirt under it may be challenging.
Gorgeous feminine workout jacket and its funny how it got warmer out after I bought it, so haven't been able to wear it just yet.

Love this jacket!
I followed other reviewers' suggestions to size up and did so, from my usual 4 to a 6. I'm 5'2, 114 lb, 32D and this jacket fits me AMAZINGLY. Lovely soft feel and extremely slimming and flattering. I love the inkwell color. The arms are just long enough and loose enough to accommodate layering underneath. Though this jacket is light, it is really warm. Bonus - really deep pockets for holding your keys and cards. I couldn't ask for any more in a jacket!

Go to jacket for casual Friday and for travel
I love this jacket - I own three colors: plum, bleached coral, and bali breeze.
What I love:
- fit. The snug fit and change of fabric at the waistline is very flattering
- feel. The fabric and fit are like a hug.
- pockets. The deep pockets will hold my iphone even with a bulky case and have room for more. The stretchiness of the pockets and elasticity at the entry of the pockets mean I can put something in them when I am traveling and not worry it will fall (or be pickpocketed) out.
- reversibility. I love that I can take this off and let it reverse and put it on again "inside out". Over and over again. Although when I travel, I often choose to wear it pocket side in, so that I have even more protection for my wallet and phone.
- washability - this holds up great in the wash. I worried about having the lighter bleached coral, but it washes great.
I could do without the hood, because I live and work in areas where it either rains hard (Florida, Georgia) and you stay inside when it does, or it rarely rains (So Cal). So I wish it came without a hood, but the hood doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. The material is so soft, the hood is nice and flat and doesn't mess up hair.
Sizing info: I'm 34B in VS bras, 129#, 5'5". I normally wear an XS in Ann Taylor tops and a 2 or 4 in H&M. I wear a 6 in CRB and a 4 in most other LLL shirts and jackets. I have two 6s and a 4 in this and they fit almost the same. I'd suggest sizing up to have that little bit extra room.

Dance studio jacket III
Just received my jacket in the mail today and it is AHHHHH-MAZING! Vey soft , with a lux feel. I read a lot of reviews before ordering this jacket, and decided to size up, just to be safe. I'm between a 6-8 in Lulu tops, so I ordered a 10. I play tennis and wanted to have room in the bust. Glad I did, it's perfect. A 8 would have fit, but would have been snug in the bust. I love the slim fit and it is VERY flattering. If you have the chance..... Get this jacket! I know I will be ordering another!
