What to do when you find yourself with a random Wednesday off from work in Detroit? LULULEMON, ofc. First stop quiche & coffee, second stop – try on all the lululemon with a full stomach so I feel kind of gross and hopefully spend less money? It’s called lululemon tourism, look it up.
Sizing Notes: I’m 5’9″ – in lululemon, I am a TTS 8 on top and a 10 on the bottom.
Scuba Oversized Funnel Neck Half-Zip ($118) in Smoky Red
The mulled wine / medium burgundy seems to be a good color for me, and, well… Gen Z lululemon junkies are HYPE on the roomy Scuba half zips.
Given their intentionally boxy design, both of these Scuba half-zips are available in 3 sizes: XS/S, M/L, and XL/XXL. I’m wearing M/L in both this and the hoodie below.
Right off the bat, I’ve got to give an A+ to Smoky Red as a color. As always, anything with Scuba in the name is going to make you want to turn into a couch blob the second you throw it on. The funnel neck is no different.
It’s a lot of fabric, though. From my chest up, I felt all nice and warm. Below that, I felt a breeze. Another thing is I don’t always love zip-ups that brush my face. It’s fun to hide in a high collar, but unless you’re going to wash it frequently (be honest with yourself), makeup and potential acne-causing bacteria could set up camp and cause problems. Think maskne.
Likes: Cozy feel, Beautiful color.
Dislikes: Felt lost inside, worried about getting makeup inside the collar when zipped.
Sizing: Spot on, if the oversized trend is your jam.
Did I buy it? No
Why Not? A little too much sweatshirt for me.
Scuba Oversized Half-Zip Hoodie ($118) in Heathered Pink Taupe
AsI mentioned before, the choice to bring this one in was purely based on Gen Z hype. Not my color choice, but it’s the only one they had in my size.
Agh, looking back on these photos, I like it more than I remember feeling when I had it on. Pretty much all the same notes as the Funnel Neck above, but add a hood. There was too much fabric in the sleeves, and that’s coming from a tall person who usually LOVES a little bonus length.
Likes: Cozy feel, nicely sized hood
Dislikes: Bunchy sleeves if you need your hands
Sizing: Spot on
Did I buy it? No
Why Not? Kind of liked, didn’t love.
