Run: Bold In The Cold Long Sleeve
not what I expected from the pictures
I love this shirt it is warm and comfy however the stitching is different than pictured and makes this shirt look much cheaper and not as stylish which is unfortunate. I frequently order online and don't have issues but this makes me nervous to order online again if the pictures are not accurately depicting the item. Please make sure the pics match the product lulu!

Stinky after a few wearings
I love this top but it got stinky only after a few wearings. I wear it to hot yoga and wear it only when working at the studio before class and in the car on the way home. It goes straight in the wash when I get home. This is my first ever Lulu purchase to be stinky and I guess from now on I need to buy the special No Stink fabric......

I love this shirt, it is warm and light all at the same time. I have worn this top running in single digit weather all winter with the Speedy Turtleneck underneath. I originally wanted the black, but my size was gone, so I purchased the blue and when it came I was delighted, it's beautiful. I check the site daily and happen to have checked when a 10 was added in black and was able to get that one as well. I wish I could still get the white, but am very happy with the two I have. I did size down. I just had a baby and usually wear a 12 but at 195 and 5'10" the 10 fit and it fits even better now at 180. I actually think the 10 will still fit great for winter runs once I get closer to my pregnancy weight.

This shirt is amazing
I loved this shirt in the black but I never bought it. When I saw the blue on sale I had to buy it. I took all the reviews into consideration and ended up buying an 8. I could have gone down to a 6, normally I'm an 8 or 10 in Lulu but this shirt runs a little big. The 8 is very comfortable with a little room. The blue is amazing.

Not as Pictured
I ordered a size 4, which is a size down for me. It fits great and is very comfortable. However, I'm extremely disappointed in the product I received. The pictures don't match the long-sleeve that was shipped to me. There is black stitching in various places all throughout the shirt, where the pictures do not show the same. The result is that the shirt doesn't look nearly as stylish. I've ordered a few other items from the online store and haven't had any issues, but am now reluctant to buy online in fear that this could happen again on a product that is on final sale and is non-refundable.

Love the loose fit of it!!!
I am 5ft 113lb 32D muscular body type. Usual LULU tops size 4. Many of us like to wear any lulu tops more fitted/tight, but this one I really like it loose fitted, it does not make me look heavy. I bought size 4 on this and I am very glad. I wear it over the workout tank on the way to gym like an easy pullover fleece, or just outing wearing down vest over it...so comfortable and cute. Strip on sleeves make arm thinner!!! It is not bodyslimming style, but I really love it how easy piece from lulu. I have a black, thinking to get blue, too.

Needed to LEARN about it to love it.
When my top arrived the first thing noticed was a weird stitch pattern at the chest. I did t open the plastic. Took photos and emailed Lulu.
Problem was... I had promised my daughter I would take her ice skating during her brother's hockey class and I NEEDED this top! I can not bare cold. ( at all )
I decided to roll the dice and went to wash the top.
I turned it inside out (do this will ALL of your Lulu) and I noticed the stitching in the chest I thought was faulty, was actually just where the warmth section of the collar was connected to the fleece.
I washed the top... ALONE, cold water, hand wash... It dried in time for ice skating and best of all .... IT WORKED!!!! I was warm! I wore this top with some under layers and PUMP IT UP pants and borrowed my daughter's Ivivva leg warmers.
LOOK before you jump on the "declining quality band wagon". There might be a reason the stitching looks off.
THIS TOP WORKS!!!! Cold is my enemy! I have arthritis kids...
Cold hurts. Ice skating would have never happened with out this top.
My daughter was brilliant and signed up for figure skating that day. She overcame her fear because MOM was there.
Lulu, you NEVER fail us!!!!
Married in Lulu.

comfortable & cozy
I ordered this top on WMTM and I'm so glad I did! I mostly buy tanks and tops from lulu and wear a size 6. I was hesitant to size down according to most reviewers, but it turned out to be accurate. I'm a petite size 6, 5'2'', 135lbs, 36B and athletic/curvy build. The 4 fit like a glove. The sleeves were not too tight, and the length covered my bum just enough. Such a great top to just wear with leggings or to go running in. The sleeves keep you cool on your run, but the insulation keeps you warm from wind.

Not as pictured!
I ordered a size 2 in the polor cream/ black color. My shirt came with black stiching all the down the sleeves, along the seam on the inner arm, across the front separating the sleeve from the front and back of the shirt... so it make the shirt look more like a baseball style. The pictures for this color does not show this style at all. I don't know what the deal is? but i did not receive what is pictured which is great disappointment. I would prefer the shirt like how it is pictured without that black stiching against the white fabric.
Otherwise the shirt is very soft and warm. I did size down from my regular 4.

Comfy but huge!
This shirt seems really warm and comfy and I love the black stitching to make it look kind of like a baseball style shirt, but.... this shirt runs pretty big. I'm usually a size 8 in all lulu tops (for reference I'm 5'7'', 150 lbs, 34DD and 29 inch waist). Got the 8 and could have gone down probably two sizes just to get the cute fit I wanted. Bought this online and on sale so can't return :(
