Race with Grace Pullover Fit & Review

First off, I must say that Lululemon has really outdone themselves. This is quite possibly the best pullover they have ever made, from a features point of view. I’m going to start at the top & go down.

First in front we have a zipper garage, pretty standard, but the zipper is dual and runs both ways. I don’t exactly know when I would use this feature, but it’s available. Then, mesh venting begins under the arms. In the back, there is also mesh venting located underneath the openings at the shoulder blades. Around the elbows begins the first half of the 4-way reflectivity. It’s hard to see in the photos, but trust me, it’s there & expertly concealed. At the waist we have a kangaroo pocket with a media management system and at the back, the last half of the 360 degrees of reflectivity plus really cute rushing details. Finally, the thumbholes and cuffins on the sleeves round out this fantastic running long sleeve. I will also mention that this is made from Brushed Luxtreme, and I would wear it in 12-20 degree celcius or mid 50s- late 60s degree fahrenheit weather. Those are approximations, but what I mean is I would wear this for cool, but not absolutely frigid weather, jogging.

Fit: I found this to be a fitted true to size. While it is fitted throughout, I managed to wear it today layered over a CRB, but under a Scuba hoodie. (Don’t know what a CRB is? Check out my post on Lululemon Slang!) I didn’t find it tight in the shoulders, too short or too long. For reference, I’m 5’6.

I hope you snag one of these, there are still full size runs online, as of today.

 

Update: Some of these made it to Markdown! A full size run of the black, and some of the Fresh Teal ones as well. So I snagged a black one. They were marked down to $69 from a retail cost of $98.

  1. Ooooo! I’ve been wondering how this new pullover fits! I love the simplicity of it, but the back (the raised, racerback thing) kinda puts me off. Sadly, I can’t have a look at in instore as I live in Australia and it’s summer here.

    1. Thanks for your comment! 🙂 I hope that this shows up in Australia! I like the venting in the back- it sort of reminds me of the Define jacket. I sure do miss those things. Anyways, I hope you’re enjoying the summer! The US sure is chilly this time of year!
