Nice Asana Jacket *Brushed
I purchased this when it went on sale in WMTM. Awesome jacket, I love the fitted style, it fits me like a glove, but isn't too tight or constricting. The length is great and jacket is very flattering overall. I like the sleek look and the brushed material on the inside of the jacket is very soft and warm.
I am 5'5 with a 36c bust and I sized down to a 6, which fits perfectly. I think it's because of the longer length and how the jacket stretches and gives in all the right places. I am normally a size 8 in the Scuba Hoodie II and a 10 in the Forme Jacket. I would definitely purchase another if more new colors come out!

It's frustrating when a beautiful item has a quality problem. I've only worn this jacket a few times and because I had a pilling problem with the regular Nice Asana I thought I should check this one (that I had put away for the season since it's summer). Unfortunately, this one has pilled as well, near the pockets on the sides of the jacket. It's too bad because it's a great jacket--I love the length and the fit. The GEC was great about the other jacket, so thanks for that, but it's still annoying to have another Lulu piece have this problem. I own a lot of Lulu and have not had this happen other than with the Nice Asana. I would not buy another one after this experience.

just received this jacket in the mail. i'm 5'2 and 118lbs, got a size 4. was really looking forward to receiving it, and it pretty much met my expectations (a little long cause i'm short) but the fit and quality seems great. love the feel of the brushed inside.
only regret is that there isn't a backward zipper (to open up the bottom when it's zipped up) like the photo shows... can a representative tell me if this was a factory mistake or was the picture misleading? i normally wouldn't bother posting this but i realized it's kind of an important feature for a long jacket. thanks!

My go-to jacket
I purchased this jacket online after I saw it in the 'We made too much' section. With it being an awesome price, I couldn't resist.
I love everything about this jacket. The fit is amazing (I'm 5'10, 135 lbs.). I purchased a size 4 and it fits like a glove. It's comfortable and form fitting, which is what I wanted. The material is soft and thicker than I expected, but still stretches and gives. The zipper is fool proof (I've been known to pinch my chin with zippers). Being a tall girl, it's hard to find a jacket that has long enough sleeves and a long enough body, but this jacket provided both.

too big :(
I received this jacket in the mail today, it was my first LLL jacket purchase so I was excited but I didn't know what size to order. I searched the reviews for someone my size but didn't find one so gambled on an 8 because I don't like things super tight but this thing is wayyy too big on me. I'm 5'4'' 125lbs and I wear a 4 in the bottoms. Don't really know what I was thinking ordering an 8 but its massive and way too long :( I would suggest this jacket for a taller person, it comes down really far on me. Well, at least I can give it to my mom who's 5'9'' for mother's day!

If you are TALL you must buy this jacket!
I am 6.1" and like Lulu in general because everything seems to run long. However, I will say that often the sleeves are often only long enough because of the extra length for the thumb holes. However, this jacket just arrived, and the sleeves are 2.5" longer than any other jacket I have. I can actually use the thumb holes without pulling on the sleeves!
Everything about this fits perfectly...and I think I may need to look for other colours. Please don't stop making this jacket. I also like that it is technical enough for golf and other activities, but looks polished enough for wearing afterwards.
If you are very tall, buy this! I always buy size 10 in the jackets, and this fits perfectly in the shoulders and hips.

Excellent jacket, especially for tall women. Very soft, stretchy, and fits perfectly (5'10", 150lbs, size 8).

update to my old stride jacket
I have a black stride jacket or in stride (whatever one had a hood) that I wore to pieces. I was in my outlet store today and bought this to replace it. I really do think this is an update from in stride. The material on this jacket feels much higher quality. My only complaint is there is no hooded type version.. I always need a hood.. keeps you so much warmer when you need it.
I thought this jacket is TTS and good fit- I'm 5'8 135lb and got a 6. I agree with the previous reviews this jacket is like heaven for someone tall and w/ long arms. I also highly recommend the black color- it is so versatile and looks really sharp.

Great versatile jacket
I love the fit and feel of the stretchy yet soft fabric. Originally I purchased the soot, and I loved the style so much I got the white & black colors as well. I am 5'7/130lbs and the 6 is perfect. I love the long cut as I have a long torso. It perfect to layer, and the white looks cute with colored jeans and crops for casual wear. Definitely worth it as a staple jacket for active & casual wear.
