Scuba Hoodie *Stretch
You Let Us All Down With This One
I was compelled to come upstairs and write a review after laundering the lulu hoodie I have had for one month. It looks like a piece of garbage. Now I LOVE lulu. I have spent probably close to $1000 rebuilding my lulu collection after a several year hiatus. I have pieces in my collection - still totally wearable from almost 10 years ago. I wash everything in cold and hang it ALL. This hoodie sucks. Its not so much the design as the inferior, SUBPAR material it was made with which will show every drip of food or spash of juice it will ever be touched by. Very very very easy to stain this hoodie. The ribbing at the bottom is already stretching out and this hoodie looks worse than hoodies I have had
that are years and years and years older. So, perhaps if you have no kids, and never spill any food on yourself while eating, don't like to get dirty or go outside in general - possibly live in a glass bubble - this may be an okay choice for you. But if you ever have to wash this hoodie it will look like - well you and I both know what it will look like...Find a different piece to purcahse.

I've bought lots of scuba hoodies over the years and was satisfied with them for the most part. The zippers on them would break after a while but I could deal with that. My most recent purchase was one of the special edition black scuba hoodies with ruffles on it - a $158 hoodie! I had hoped the price would mean I would get a quality hoodie. Well after a few washes it has elastic white fibers popping out of the ribbed part of the sleeve. Totally noticeable on a black hoodie. I would have expected the sweater to have natural wear after a year - not one or two months. My older hoodies are in far better condition.
And Lulu, if you're going to charge over $100 for less than quality clothing, you might want to train your associates to provide good customer service. Was in the store this week to look for a replacement sweater. I asked the associate about the blue jacket on the mannequin in the front window and her response was "I don't know which one is in the window". I proceeded to explain the location of the mannequin and the jacket but was met with a blank look. I finally asked if I should just go up to identify it for myself. I understand that sales people might have a section or aren't sure about the location of every product, but what happened to the days when they would actually HELP you find the item you wanted to purchase.

I have one of the old scuba hoodies I received as a gift years ago, but it is black and as an owner of two golden retrievers, I only wear it very occasionally because it attracts so much dog hair. So I went to the lulu store and bought the one that's blue and white striped, and I bought it in a size 4 (I usually wear size 2 but I always found my black scuba was pretty tight). I loved it and wore it for 3 days straight, but then when I washed it, the white colour really faded after just ONE wash! Now it looks really dingy so I wear it only around the house.
And I shouldn't have bought the size 4 because it fits my in the arms and I also actually have no complaints about the length like some of the other comments on here, my issue was the the entire torso was so so boxy and made me look like I have no shape. Probably my mistake for buying a larger size, so I would say stick to your true size on this one. I am currently waiting for a size 2 that I just ordered off WMTM. Hoping it fits well but if it does t I'll just give it to one of my younger cousins :).

For the price of this.....I would never buy it again. I purchased one from the Mississauga store and within 8 weeks and 2 handwashes later the material designed for strech and move under the arms has shredded and now has a hole in it!!!!! I still have my old hoodies from 2011 and they r in better shape than this new one I just bought. Complete garbage I am sad to say and I do love lulu, but give me a break. This is unacceptable and embarrassing to the brand.

Not one of my favorites...
I have to concur with the other reviewers that this scuba is not quite the same as the older scuba hoodies. I thought it was perhaps to due to the different fabric?. it just seems to be snug in some places and it bulges out in an unflattering way across my torso. I actually LIKE that it's shorter, I'M short, so the jacket hits me at the perfect spot. It looks good when it's unzipped, but when I zip it up it just bulges and makes me look like I have a gut. I think the quality is still good and I will continue to purchase Lulu Lemon gear, it's still the best you can buy in my opinion.

Love the colors, fabric & the fit EXCEPT it's wayyyy too short! I'm 5'9 and this hoodie barely comes over my waistband. Wish they made scubas for us tall girls too!! :(

Perfect for me!
I love that this jacket is both warm and maintains its shape! Usually jackets make me look boxy, but this one actually accentuates my waist! I'm 5'7", 117 lbs and wear a 32 B, I purchased the 2 and I couldn't be happier! I personally love the length of the jacket, it's not too long or too short, it hits me right at my hips. However, if someone likes jackets that are on the long side, this probably isn't for you. Also, it does run a little bit snug in the chest area, if you're full in the chest area, it may be smart to size up.

Comfy Sweater For Colder Work Outs
This is the sweater I throw on after a good sweaty crossfit work out. I leave the box completely drenched-there for, freezing if I have to run an errand afterwards. I throw on my Scuba & it literally takes the sweat off my body and keeps me warm. I do wish it was a little longer in the hip area. I am 5'8" 34D, 25"waist, 36"hips & the size 10 is perfect! I have the purple & white and both have held up great. I thought for sure the white would get stained or turn colors but so far so good!

Love the fit, but...
I love the fit of this scuba, however after just ONE wash the zipper toggle has started to pop off (the sliver logo bead is detaching from the stretchy string) and therefore is hanging lopsided. I could understand if this was an old tried and true scuba that I had had for years and the zipper broke....but one wash? A little disappointed.

I have two older scuba hoodies, at least ten years old. I love those hoodies. They still have a great shape, still have some stretch, the black hasnt even faded that much. Really good quality. BUT, I bought a new one a couple years ago and it is nothing like the old ones. It has lost all shape, the waistband kind of just hangs there now. The material seems a lot thinner and cheap. I'm totally disappointed in my new one. I would not buy another one and would not recommend them either.
