Rest Day Pullover
Reminds me of old LLL quality
I purchased this in my usual size 6 (I'm 5'5" and 121 lbs) and it fits as described, TTS, for myself I couldn't imagine going either up or down a size, I like loose fitting clothing but going up a size would have me swimming in it and I like comfortable tight fits as well but going down a size would likely make the arms feel snugger and I wouldn't want them any snugger than they are...I have a pet peeve for material that feels like it's constricting. I do find the zippers on the pockets kind of finicky, not nice and smooth so you kinda have to work at zipping and unzipping, we'll see how well they hold up. Overall, there's a nice weight to this sweater and I prefer the neck on it over my don't worry be happy pullovers which has just a bit too much material on it for my liking.
I chose black because the other colors were too light, black swan would have been perfect though...mine arrived un-faded looking and I hope it holds it's deep black throughout washes or I will be returning it especially for the money paid.

faded like crazy
after wearing the black hoodie like 3-4 times it faded insanely in the wash. It looks like it's like 5 years old. Very disappointing for the money I spent on it.

I tried this top on in the store after pining over it online for quite some time. I love the mint color and the neckline, but when trying it on the store I got a "batwing" effect underneath my armpits because there is extra fabric under there. It made it a no go, but don't worry I found a lot of other things in the store :)

Not in love...
I would be obsessed with this top IF it were in a thinner material. I feel the thick sweatshirt material adds extra bulk, especially with the pocket placement AND the lower half of the arms is very tight. I feel very constrained in it. Great concept - just wish it were lightweight. Also - new colors would be cool. Grey and black are great as staples but patterns and color is always nice.

I've had this about two weeks in black. I love that it's so versatile. I wear it for late nights outside, after working out, and I even brought it to work with me at a bank and threw it on over to keep warm and ended up never taking it off! The collar makes it look like it has a little style and isn't just a sweatshirts of sorts. The only bad part is that I partially wish I sized up to a 10. I'm pair shaped and the eight fit great on top but the back fabric doesn't fit well on my rear, or at least the way it's suppose to on the model. The ten however was really baggy up top and looked a little messy. Either way I love it and will continue to wear it.

It`s been a long time since I`ve been this excited about a Lulu product! I range between a 4 and 6 in tops and am a 6 in pants. I`m 5`7`` and 140 pounds. I have a long torso- and this length is fabulous! Although it is bum covering while standing, it does ride up a little when sitting- but not enough that my back is hanging out. I love the no thumbholes. Sleeves in this are great, I sometimes find the sleeves to be tight when the rest is a good fit. I bought this in a 4 and 6. While the 4 did fit, it was snug. The 6 was roomy without looking baggy and I can actually fit a long sleeved shirt on underneath it. The neck is great without being too much,I love the thick quality, reminds me of my older Lulu products. Will definitely purchase this in another colour! Keep them coming!

I bought the dune rest day pullover about a month ago, and boy is it comfy! I wear it to teach pilates and also on chilly days walking in the city. Spring mornings are still chilly in NY and this is a perfect top. I remember trying the rest day pullover from last year and passed because my size was sold out. I'm so glad I waited to get my true size.
I'm mostly a size 2 in lulu tops, except for swiftly tops when I wear a 4. I went for my size 2 and it's perfect. I can fit a swiftly long sleeve underneath when colder weather comes around after the summer winds down. You sort of have to play around with the fit of the bust area, and pull it down over the rear end. Have washed it since I received it and it's held up so far, seams are well constructed.
Now lulu, if only the Define Jacket would come back, I'd be a happy woman!!!

Cute and comfy
Really happy with this pullover. The material is very soft and the fit is just slouchy enough without being too baggy. I was a bit worried about the sleeve style, but it actually looks good for this kind of sweater.
I'm 5'6, 117lbs, 34C and I got my regular size 4 (dune), which fit perfectly. Didn't need to size up or down. If you like a very baggy fit, you'll want to go up a size.

Rest Day Pullover
I'm 5'9, 135 lbs with a small A-cup and I am quite hippy. I am consistantly a 6 in tops and 6 long in bottoms at lulu, but something told me that this was something I needed to try on before I ordered it online. Thank heavens I did!!
The fabric, cowl neck, hidden pocket and dune color are beautiful, but this sweater doesn't have much shape and it falls right to the widest part of my hips, which holds the fabric away from my body, making it look like my whole torso is as wide as my hips!!! Not a good look!
I feel as if this sweater is designed more for women with an athletic build or a lean frame. If you have wider hips, this is definitely something to try on before ordering it online.
Overall, I would recommend this sweater because it is gorgeous and reminds me of the fabulous quality that lulu started out with, but it didnt work for me!

best sweatshirt ever made!
I could live in this pullover. I'm usually between a 4 and a 6 in lulu tops, but I wanted a looser fit. I'm 5'2", 115 pounds and the size 6 fit perfectly. I live in the southwest and this pullover is perfect for our cool desert nights.
