Run: Beach Runner Jacket
Nice Soft Jacket
I received this jacket yesterday after buying off the WMTM section of the website. I ordered the bleached coral combo version and when I pulled it out of the package I thought it was quite bright especially the outline of the pockets. I tried it on though and thought it looked really good. Nice fit, a little looser than the forme in the waist area. I have a define, forme and now this jacket all in size 8. I am 5'6" 140 lbs, muscular 34-29-37 for reference. I may have been able to size down to a 6 in this but it might have been tight in the shoulders. I wouldn't have bought it at the original price b/c of the colour combo, but on sale I took a chance. I am considering a black one too. It is super soft. I can't say how it will hold up since I have only washed & worn it once. But it is a nice jacket that should have been priced at this point originally.

Great lightweight jacket
I hesitated to order this online with it being final sale. Glad I took the chance. The jacket is good quality, nice soft material & I love the color. Got it in the coral combo. I will wear it to gym & on walks. It is going to be a a great addition to my athletic wear. I would have liked to pay less but the chance that color & size would sell out is possible. I would not pay full price for this jacket so glad I found it on WMTM.

I was so excited when this jacket went on sale (final sale mind you) as I have been looking at it online for weeks and even went in store to try it on and make sure I got the right size. It just arrived and the zipper is AWFUL. It is really hard to secure and I have basically given up. I am truly disappointed since I went in store and didn't have this problem. I'm not sure if mine is defective, but based on my experience only buy this jacket if you have a LOT of patience.

Great Jacket for running/hiking/everyday
I ordered the Beach runner jacket in black.
Usually wear size 8 but I wanted a looser fit so I ordered size 10 - still flattering fit even when I sized up.
I like the length of the jacket - not too long / not too short (I always found Scuba jacket to be too short)
Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and I'll wear the jacket around often all spring/summer/fall (probably too thin for winter).

Not Sold Out Yet?!
I think another reviewer mentioned that she was surprised this jacket is not sold out and I must say, I'm just as astonished!
This arrived today and I loved it instantly. The inside brushed luxtreme feels heavenly and within a very short time gets quite toasty.
The fit is fabulous, I'm 5', 107lbs. and a 32B and this jacket is perfectly fitting, it does go past my hips maybe by an inch and a half, but I like that and I have a shorter torso.
I ordered this in Black because it's a color that holds up for a long time and pairs well with virtually anything. I wouldn't say that it is completely "body-skimming", but not totally "fitted" either, but rather somewhere in between if that makes sense. So if you're looking for a bit more roominess, then you may either want to size up or go with a different style.
Overall I am very happy with this jacket, just wish that more colors had been available to choose from because I would've gotten another!

I like the fit
I bought the jacket 2 days ago and have wore it a few times. Since I have a few thicker hoodies, I bought this jacket for its thinner fabric and functional details. This size 4 jacket has a looser fit for me (5'2", 106lbs). I chose the black one as it is my favourite colour and a black jacket makes me look slim.

So Soft, Color Off
Just got this jacket today, and I've been wearing it since. The fabric is incredibly soft, and I can't wait to use it on a run (I didn't have time this morning). The only thing is that the color is not the same as the photo. I got the dune/teal/white, and the sleeves are more of a lime. I own the fresh teal/very green in the swiftly tech long sleeve and it is my favorite color combination (I almost always wear all black), and so I ordered this the moment I saw it in the WMTM. I still like it, I'm just really particular about my colors. I think if I had seen it in person I might have passed.

why the discrimination?!?
as an avid Lulu fan, and owner of an obscene (at least according to my husband!) amount of lulu clothing & accessories, i am truly offended that this gorgeous jacket that i have been coveting for MONTHS is only available up to size 10 to canadian customers but is available in size 12 to americans!!!
i am appalled, as should any curvier lulu fans be! i can't fathom how a canadian company could justify offering a better product range to another market, thereby alienating a portion of its consumers (those that don't happen to be tiny). it is not only disappointing but borders on discriminatory

THIS IS A MUST HAVE IT LOOKS BETTER ON AND BETTER IN PERSON! REALLY CUTE, FITS NICE AND COLOR COMBO FOR THE CORAL IS PERFECT FOR A FEMININE LOOK ON A SPORTY JACKET!
BEST JACKET I BOUGHT FROM LULU YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED IF YOU ADD THIS TO YOUR COLLECTION.
I am 5'3 130 pounds and heavy in the breast area, bought a size 8, fits great (I like my things a bit on the looser side with lulu to compensate my larger breasts if you have smaller breasts then a D and 130lbs id recommend the size 6)

Excellent Spring Jacket
I initially bought this jacket because I needed a lighter running jacket for the springtime Chicago weather. It has more than exceeded my expectations. It is very soft, lightweight, yet warm when I need it to be. It has reflective details, thumbholes, zippered pockets, and an iPod cord routing on the inside. I was hesitant to spend the $$ on this jacket, but this is well worth it. It's even cuter in person and I have received many compliments.
