Run: Rise And Shine Pullover
OK, I bought this on sale after seeing the phenomenal reviews but it just is not worth the $69 IMO. It is fitted but not tight, so, yes, flattering, but the seams inside the sleeves are just awful. I could feel them as I was sliding into it and feel them just sitting around doing very little. Cannot image running in this or doing any activity that requires movement, with these seams. I don't get it. The description even says flat seams. It's really puzzling. I would return it if I could.

Glad I took the Leap
I have been eyeballing this top for a while. I tried it on at the store when it first came out. I decided to look online recently to see if there were any left and to my surprise it was marked down. I bought it and I am so glad I did. I am very frugal and only purchase things I know I will get a ton of use out of. This top is great. The material is soft and just the right weight for chilly air conditioned indoors or chilly morning runs and or rides. The armpit vents are GENIUS! I am 5'4" 130# with a small waist and chest and muscular shoulders and arms. I got a size 8 for the added length and room (it is fitted). The 8 is great. The sleeves are a bit long but they are stretchy and soft so they are easy to pull up. This is one of the best long sleeve tops Lulu has made in a while!

Bigger than expected...
Bought this on WMTM because I am an absolute sucker for the color (yellow) and while I own thousands of dollars of lulu, I have never tried a pullover.
For those of you considering the last few sizes left: I ordered a size up because of some of the reviews I read, and wish I hadn't. I have a feeling my regular size would have been perfect - still, since it's not returnable, a little big is certainly better than a little small. And yes - these sleeves are L O N G.

I was lucky enough to pounce on this while it was on the WMTM section. I ordered the black and yellow for myself in a size 6. I am 5'4", 130 pounds, 32D, with relatively wide shoulders. I wear anywhere from a size 4-8 in Lulu tops. The size 6 fits perfectly, I can wear it alone or layered with a tank underneath. My arms did not feel constrained at all and the overall cut and fit were very flattering. I liked how it's a little longer so it covers part of my bum (I have a slightly shorter torso than most). The material is so soft and comfy, I decided to wear this on other occasions other than running. The black is a great staple, and the yellow fun for spring. The yellow is a little bit on the sheer side, but I think it's cute when you see a little pop of color from your sports bra or tank underneath. Loved the vents under the arms and the thumb holes! The sleeves are a tad on the longer side but not a problem at all. I want to buy more colors!

This top is amazing! Buttery soft, lightweight, flattering to curves, great underarm venting, etc. etc. I love it. I picked it up on MD at a local store in bleached coral pop orange and just ordered another in black. I foresee wearing these spring, fall and winter for to and from the gym, warming up, etc. Get it while you still can! Wish I had been able to get it in frond too.
For reference - 5'4", ~115lbs, 32B and bought size 4. TTS for me.

So soft and comfortable! Perfect for cool runs!
Was keeping my eye on this shirt, hoping it would get into the WMTM section and it did! Took it for a run this evening after work and it was perfect for the cool weather -- the material is buttery soft as promised and sweat was wicked away as promised. The back pocket probably wouldn't be able to contain more than just keys (as I had) so I wouldn't try putting in a phone/iPod. The sleeves were a little long on me, but I didn't think it was a big deal and the thumbholes are an awesome touch.
I think it's fairly TTS -- I'm 125lbs, 5'2", 34B and typically wear a size 4 or 6 (recently more 4s than 6s) and I got this shirt in a 4 and it fits great, fitted, and slimming. I think the 6 would've been a little loose and the sleeves even longer!
Love the shirt...I snagged it in the coral/orange color before it sold out...I'm tempted to get it in the yellow as well...

The feel of the material is nice but flimsy and the fit is strange. I was advised to order a size up based upon my muscular build. It just does not fit right. The shoulders and chest fit nicely however the sleeves are entirely too long and the bottom "bells out". I wish I could return but I purchased as WMTM so I am stuck with it. Disappointed...

I got this shirt today and I instantly loved it. My only request for improvement: please please make it little longer, the sleeves are fine but this one barely ends under my waist line. The quality is great, please LULU think of the tall girls in the tops too: I rather spend little more money on Lulu great quality, no other brand caters tall AND slim girls..

One of the best item(s) purchased! Fitted and flattering. For reference, 105 lbs, petite, 34A or 32B, size 4. Perfect fit and i'm glad it's on SALE!!!! only regret? I didn't them in coral or orange.

Perfect for someone with long torso!
I love this top. Went for a 5 mile run earlier in Seattle and it felt amazing on my skin. I ordered a 6 since the 4 would be a little snug. I am 5'5 at 128lbs. Love the thumb holes. This top is extremely light perfect for layering.
