Pedal Power Blazer
Warm Jacket but....
First of all, I ordered this jacket from "we made too much" section for $129, great price for this brand name jacket.
When I opened it up, OMG, the color is soooo pretty, slightly lighter than cherry blossom!! I was thrilled to try it on, but... here are the cons.
I am 5'2", 105 pounds. waist is around 23-24". shoulders 14"
1, The BUTTONS are way too tight, the material is too soft, I am 100% sure i will rip the jacket if I button it up. It was too tight that I need to use a coin to open the buttons--trust me, Im not kidding.
2, Girls, there is a reason why the model in the pic doesn't show you a pic of her zip all the way up. When I button it up, OMG, i made me look like an over-weight girl, definitely not girly, and a bit buff. I am skinny enough, I usually wear size 2 in lululemon's jackets, but for this one, i would say, go up to a size 6 if you can, but then if so, I cannot guarantee the sleeves lengths. The sleeves on this (size 4) are Okay, not as that lengthy as other ppl mentioned. So, i guess i will not zip it up......
1, VERY WARM and light weight. (I will be okay if i don't zip it up)
2, very cute in the back, and if I don't zip up, the cut is actually quite flattering.
3, PINK COLOR! so pretty!!!!!
4, water resistant.
Overall, good purchase!

Horrible fit! Very disappointed!
I usually love everything Lululemon. I am always a size 2, but in Lululemon I am a consistent size 4. I bought this jacket on the "we made too much" final sale page and when it arrived it fit horribly. The buttons look like they are pulling on me, the sleeves are baggy and long and if I zip it up it is skin tight. I think the jacket looks great OFF and thats where it will stay... OFF ME! But, I am very disappointed with Lululemons service. I agree with the concept of final sale if the jacket is represented properly. I too work in sales and sometimes offer a no return policy, but if my costumers feel my product was misrepresented be it in color or size, I refund the item. Lululemon is a very successful brand and I would hope they would recognize when at item is made poorly and instead of casting it to the final sale page with no returns- simply write Slightly imperfect or irregular, so I can make an informed shopping choice. I feel cheated. I will still however shop at lululemon, but only for those sure fits. I recommend buying this jacket if you want to just hang it on a hanger. Otherwise- choose another one.

Love this jacket
I agree with everyone, go one size up! I'm always a size 6 in Lulu, and it's definitely tight across the chest and snug around the waist. But it's a beautiful jacket, very flattering and warm!

Go one size up!
I wish I did. Fits in the shoulders and arms but hard to button around the middle (maybe it's me and not the design?). I wear a size 6 jacket in all (most) Lulu jackets. I'm 5'4, 125 lbs. I should have realize it would be a tight fit since the models on line don't show you the front of the jakcet buttoned up. Beautiful jacket otherwise. May stay in my closet until I lose some mid-section weight.

If I could give it 6 stars, I would!
If you can get past the awkward sizing of this jacket, it is amazing! I bought the soft blush color. For reference, I am a petite 4'11 and 1/2, and a 34 B. I had to size up to a 6, and usually I'm a 2. I anticipated having to size up based on the reviews, and glad I did. I tend to look pretty top heavy sometimes, and with this jacket, it zips up just right, over my chest without feeling too tight. However, the fit is VERY flattering to me. I love how it's longer in the back to cover my bum. Usually with a lot of jackets, when I bend over, the back comes up but with this one, everything stayed put. No uncomfortable drafts going up my back! The material is also very soft, usually with down jackets, I end up looking like I'm wearing a giant trashbag, but this one drapes the figure so beautifully. The ribbon in the back is an added plus, I just love the femininity of the jacket. I also didn't realize there was a zipper pocket in the back either! So far, I haven't actually gone biking in this, just walking around town, but kept me toasty warm! With the sizing, sleeves were a tad bit too long, but I didn't mind. I want this jacket in every color!!!!

Cute and warm without the bulk!
I hate the cold, partially because I hate the bulkiness of being warm. I don't want to feel like the michillen man looks! I am 5'3" 117lbs, 33-26-36, and the size 6 fit the best. Like other reviews I had to size up. I think this is why the sleeves are a tad long, but not really a big deal for me since it's not too fluffy of a jacket. Definitely keeps me warm In 30 degree weather, with proper pants of course. This is easily my new favorite! Love the thumbholes, elastic to keep the back in place, pocket in the back under the bow, and the soft feel of the fabric!

Stylish, warm but runs small
I purchased this jacket in my usual size 8 and was surprised that it was snug around the chest and shoulder area, even while I was wearing only a tank top underneath. I usually purchase a size 8 in Lulu tops and bras. Still the jacket is warm and the detailing is beautiful.
I'd recommend to size up for people who are considering buying this jacket.

I just received my blush jacket and it's the most beautiful jacket I've ever seen! The picture does not do it any justice. The actual color is like a soft pink with a tinge of grey. It's the best color to contrast tanned skin. It's very feminine for a down jacket. Most of the ones out there are dowdy and shapeless.
I'm 5 ft 6 and weigh 120 pounds. I have broad shoulders and a dancer's build. Usually I buy size 4 in tops but I read all the reviews and got a 6. It fits perfectly and I agree, for top heavy women, or women with short torsos, this would not fit well nor look good.
Thank you, Lululemon for this jacket. I love your style!

Beautiful jacket but order up a size!
This jacket is beautiful. The bow on this is a really nice finishing touch. I think this is a very unique and sophisticated style. I bought the soft pink colour and I get many compliments on it. It is also warm considering how thin it is.
Definitely order a size up! I have a fitted down Lululemon jacket in a size 4 from a few years back and it fits loose enough to wear sweaters underneath even though it is form fitting so I was surprised how tight the 4 in this style was. I ended up buying a 6 which fits perfectly with the exception that the sleeves were too long. I can live with the sleeves being too long for the price I paid: $129 + tax in store. But I wouldn't pay full price for this because of the strange fit. I also don't recommend this if you are top heavy. I have a small bust and even going up a size, it is still very fitted across my chest. Still, it's a gorgeous jacket and I'm glad I got it.
To help anyone with fit, I am 5'6" and 125 lbs. I am slim and toned and according to others I look more like I'm 110 lbs. I have a small bust (34A) and have broad shoulders. I bought a size 6 that fits perfectly except for the sleeves being slightly too long.
4 stars because of the weird fit.

Love this jacket!
I was sure to order up a size after reading reviews. I am glad I did as my true sized would have been too snug! But, this jacket is my new favorite! It is adorable and functional! I have received so many compliments on this jacket. It keeps me warm without over heating me. Other than the sizing issues, this jacket is a home run!!
