Fit Review! Every Journey Hoodie & Noir Crop

May 20, 2019



Hello! I'm back again. This time I have a review of the Every Journey Hoodie in Moonwalk. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. 

After reading reviews online, I grabbed a size 4 and a size 6 in the Every Journey Hoodie. In the photos, the size 4 is on the left, the size 6 is on the right. As you can see the size 4 looks more flattering, but is very fitted to the point where when zipped up, you can see every line underneath the jacket. The size 6 has more room to layer, but it also looks a little sloppy. 

Size 4 on the left, size 6 on the right.

Comfort wise, the size 4 felt fine. It didn't feel tight because nulu is very stretchy. Unfortunately I didn't love it in either size to shell out $128. The color moonwalk also has a lot of visible seams. The black version is solid and perhaps would have been more flattering. The store did not have black in stock for me to try on.

I've had a few readers ask if I have tried on the Noir Crop. I actually did about a month or so ago at the store, but didn't post any photos because of how ridiculous I looked. It was borderline embarrassing to tell you the truth! The crop length was closer to full length on me and the pants were so wide I just laughed and took them off right away. In case you would like to try them on for yourself, they did run true to size in the waist. If you are close to my height, I would stay clear!

  1. The 4 definitely looks better on you.

    BTW, what size are your feet. I'm not sure if you post the size of your shoe reviews but it would def help as a reference. I think I'm a true 4.5.But have to wear 5s because that's usually as small as shoes come. Have you tried the rothy size 4 kids loafers. Those fit just perfect on me although I like the sleeker look of the adult version more. But for $65 I figure I can't go wrong. Are you true 5? or a 4.5? My name is Cindy btw, I comment as anonymous because I don't want my email posted. Thanks

    1. I'm a size 5 in shoes, a size 5.5 in sneakers usually. I haven't seen many size 4.5 so I don't know if that's a better fit to be honest. But a size 5 usually works for me. I think I will place an order for the Rothy's kids in a size 4. Thanks for the advice Cindy!

  2. I caved and purchased the Every Journey hoodie in black and really like it. I also got one size smaller than I’d usually get. I find it very flattering, perhaps the black does a good job at hiding any weird lumps and bumps though. 😁

    1. Ah that's what I might have thought. Black is probably the way to go!

  3. I have the old Bhatki jacket in black swam and baroque blue and love the asymmetrical zipper so thought this new jacket would be nice, but it does't look quote right. I think it is too long and the nulu is not forgiving. Black would look better.

    1. Hi Shirley, agreed on all points! Black would be more flattering, but I didn't like it enough to spend $128... so hesitant on getting the black to try.

  4. I just got my Every Journey Hoodies in the mail (moonwalk and light chrome) and ugh, I wanted to love them so much but I just don't. :( They are right up my alley style wise. Love the longer length, the hood, the asym zipper, etc., but they just don't look high quality on. I got size 8 in both because the comments said to size up and I'm between a 6 and 8 in tops, so got the 8. The sleeves are baggy and the top looks a bit sloppy overall. And yea, the material shows every little lump and crease underneath. Plus I am not a fan of how the pockets stretch open when it's worn. Those small details just make it look cheap. I thought I'd love the moonwalk color but it's kind of drab and unflattering on me. I like the light chrome better but not enough. So disappointed. I'm returning both. Lulu needs to fix the issues with this one and come out with a round 2 that's higher quality.

    1. Agreed with you on all fronts. There's a slight chance the black color would work best, but still not enough for me to order one in the black to try. Maybe they will come out with another version. For now I am pretty happy with my Hooded Define jacket though! Have you tried that? It's definitely a size up jacket as well.

    2. Yup, love my hooded define, have it in the kind of camo/olive green color (can't remember the name). It's SO much more flattering! But for some reason I rarely wear it. I think because it's a bit shorter and I like my hoodies to cover my backside, plus it's difficult to wear over anything besides a tank but I don't like showing my arms so never wear tanks. Lol, oh well. Still totally eyeing the pink color one that just went on WMTM, ;)
