Store Try Ons! Hooded Define Jacket & Sundown Wrap

February 7, 2019




Happy Friday everyone! Thank you all for the birthday wishes and encouragement on cleaning out my closet! I'll have a post written up soon and I'll talk about how that went. A while back I tried on the Hooded Define Jacket in my normal size 4 (check out my original review here) and  found it way too tight. I've been meaning to try it again in the next size up. I've never been a size 6 in my life, but there's always a first! 



This jacket is made out of nulu, and it is amazingly soft to touch. The size 6 feels so much better than the size 4. The sleeves however are very long on me. I did pull them up a bit and that did the trick without looking or feeling bunched up. I'm sure the print helped camouflage the extra fabric around my arms.

Sleeves are very long.


This jacket felt very comfortable on. The length of the jacket hits at the hip and does not fully cover the bum. It's very similar to how a regular Define Jacket fits in terms of length. I would definitely say 100% this is a size up item. Since I'm on a ban, I did not purchase this but it's on my wish list! I really love the spanish rose lining and lace detail. It looks fabulous paired with a spanish rose bottom like the Align Crop that's currently on sale.  I just love this color so much!





 Here are some more photos of the Sundown Wrap. I know I promised to take better pics of the one I bought but the sun is not cooperating with me lately. I'll have to try again this weekend. The size I'm wearing below is the size 2. I wanted to see if this was a size down item.




While the front still looks fine, the size 2 is noticeably shorter in the back than the size 4. (In case you missed it, check out my size 4 review here.) Also the sleeves are a lot tighter in the size 2.


The biggest difference is how the back fit. It is definitely too tight across the back. The size 4 is a better fit for me so this item is true to size. 


Shop:



Last thing I want to mention, there's a decent WMTM upload. If you're not on a ban here are my picks! 


(Matching bra!)



(These went on sale pretty quickly. Guess people weren't buying them up! My fit review here.)

Scuba Hoodie $79-$89



 That's all for me! Hope everyone has a great weekend! Let me know your thoughts on the Hooded Define Jacket. I'm seriously tempted to buy it once my ban is over.

  1. The hooded define looked good on you. I like the pink on the inside. Was it just on the hood or the whole body? I bought the rulu define last year and the sleeves were long on me too. I really like the rulu define, one of my favorite pieces! The longish sleeves don’t bother me. I might have to check out that spanish rose hooded define! The size 4 sundown wrap definitely looked Much better on you. Happy belated birthday!

    1. The pink covers mainly the hood. It might extend to the collar area a bit. The rest of the jacket is lined in black if I recall. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

  3. Yes this Hooded Define looks really nice on you. Not a pink person but Spanish Rose is pretty and it goes well with black. Wish the sleeves were a bit shorter though.

    You’re right, size 4 fits you better in the Sundown Wrap. Lulu wraps are usually oversized and I’m surprised that this one is TTS. I wish the new Find Your Calm Wrap came in Heathered Spanish Oak!

    1. Me too, the Find Your Calm Wrap is totally something I would buy but not crazy about the colors. Maybe they will release more colors.

  4. Happy belated birthday! I'm tempted by some of the WMTM especially the FTBW bras. But I'm trying to cut back on spending too much on LLL.

  5. I have the RULU define. And nope- no piling. I actually have thee defines (different fabrics) and no piling. I wash and machine dry my lulus and no piling. Maybe there’s some piling between the thighs of my wunder unders, but that’s normal lol.

  6. Thank you for your feedback, Sherry. I had bad experience with my Luon Groove Pants cos they pilled like crazy. Most of the Define Jackets are made with Luon and maybe I should check out the Rulu ones.

  7. This is a side note, and I know you’re on a ban so I shouldn’t even mention it but I know you’re looking for more work clothes and versatile pieces... I just bought the on repeat bomber and it’s the perfect little addition to my wardrobe... it’s almost like a casual jacket blazer without the collar. Definitely petite friendly. Can’t wait to hear how your wardrobe thing went!

    1. Once my ban is over I will definitely check out the On Repeat Bomber. Would you say this is a true to size item? Should I stick to my normal size 4 tops/Define Jacket size? Which color did you get?

  8. I bought size 4 in grey (I’m normally a 6 in defines). Black would have been nice too.
