I am 5’6 141 lbs (athletic build) and I wear a size 8 in Lululemon.  I can sometimes get away with a 6 in some of their baggy tops, HOWEVER I often size up in their sweats to a size 10 because they are way too fitting.

 

I almost always wear a 27 in jeans and small to medium top size.

 

Hope this helps! 🙂

@abigailelizabeth919:  I wear a size 4 in pants and tops, it’s pretty true to my every day size which is a size small

@abigailelizabeth919:  I love Lululemon. After that Chip Wilson scandal, I did stop shopping there for a while. But now that they got a new CEO I shop there again 🙂 I have a pretty musuclar build. I am 5″5 and anywhere between 165-170. In street sizes I usually wear 10-12 bottoms and 8-10 tops. With my pants from Lululemon, I’m always a 10 and with my tops I am always an 8-10 (for reference, I’m a 36C). I do a lot of yoga, running, and general circuit training and I find that my pants from Lululemon are always the ones I reach for even though I have stuff from Nike, Athleta, etc. For some reason, their pants fit my body type very well. I like their tops a lot, especially their “cool racerback” one because I can put a running bra under it or a yoga bra.

@abigailelizabeth919:  I have a ton of lululemon. in stretchy pants I wear a 6, and I wear a 6 in most tops. i do like them to be fitted. I’m 5’7” and 155. ) I wear an 8 if it’s not stretchy, and same with the really thick sweatpants and running shorts. so basically if it’s stretchy i wear a 6 if it’s not i wear an 8. I have a very hourglass shape with some junk in the trunk and muscular legs. I wear a size 28 in most jeans and a small or medium top ( I sometimes have to size up for my bust, 32f)

@DuckEBee:  Yes.  He is a total D-bag.  I don’t buy nearly as much as I used to with all the controversy they’ve been having – Chip, see-through pants, banning customers who resell their items on ebay…

Check out Lorna Jane and Rogiani.  They are my 2 new favorite brands.

5’4″ 106ish size 0 in most stores (00 in J Crew and LOFT, 2 in high end brands) and my Lululemon stuff is mostly 4, a few 2. Their stuff runs quite small!

I’m between a 10 and 12 in jeans and I’m always a 10 in Lulu bottoms. I love Lululemon stuff. It lasts forever and even when my weight goes up and down, it still fits! I like not having to keep buying new clothes as I lose/gain weight! I haven’t tried their tops before so I can’t comment on that sizing.

ETA: I’m 5’6″ and 153 lbs, hourglass shape.

@abigailelizabeth919:  It’s true to size for me. I wear a size 24 in pants and wear a 0-2 in Lululemon. I’m 5’5 and 105lbs. 

I know a lot of people dislike the company and the clothes, but I have some stuff from that that’s 7-8 years old. I still have my first ever pair of groove pants that I bought 8 years ago, and they’re in great condition.

I wash my lulu luon items together in the washing machine and hang everything to dry. I’ve tried a lot of other workout gear and I haven’t found anything that’s as comfy, longlasting, and stylish. I’m definitely guilty of wearing my stuff casually at home as well as to work out.

I’m 6’1, so I always wear the talls.  I’m very straight on the bottom, I wear a size 8 in most pants, a 6 in the studios.  I generally wear a size 10 pant in regular stores.  I wear a size 10 top/jacket.  I’m broad shouldered and a V body type, so I have to get all my shirts to fit my shoulders and bust.  I usually wear a 10 top/blazer in regular stores (though I get darts put in all my blazers to nip them in a bit, jackets rarely fit me perfectly off the rack.)

6 in jeans, 6 in Lululemon pants. I’m 5’8”, 150lbs. 🙂 HOWEVER, I found I love Athleta’s “Revelation” Capri 1000% better than Lulu’s “Wonder Under” Capri. I HATED how low Lulu’s pants were, especially since I end up doing a lot of burpies, push ups, bent over exercises when I work out and I like my butt and love handles to be super covered.

@abigailelizabeth919:  5’4, 115ish, lean, muscular and not much for curves.

usually I’ll take a 0-4 bottom, 0/XS tops and dresses. (No boobage. :)) My wedding dress was a 2.

Lulu Lemon, size 2 or 4 pants, but usually a 4. Shirts size 2. So fairly true to size for me. Actually I like that the sizes are the way they are because some brands are sized so big that I can’t even wear them because the small is too big for me.

That said, I hate that the range of sizes is so small. I have a friend who isn’t even that big and she can’t shop there at all! That sucks. They should seriously expand.

@abigailelizabeth919:  I am 5’3 115 lbs. Sizes vary so much, but I typically wear a 2-4 in “grown up stores- gap, banana republic, RW&Co etc. Usually a 6 at H&M and 5-7 if I’m shopping at “younger” stores e.g. Forever 21, garage etc. In tops I’m alomost always an XS or S depending on fit (I have no boobs)

In lulu I almost always buy size 4, I have some size six from when I was a few lbs heavier and it’s not like it’s swimming on me so I still wear it. I’ve gotten away with a 2 on rare occassions with looser tops and casual pants.

I know the old CEO was a d-bag and lulu itsself seems to a bit cult like, but overall I do really love their products. They’re great quality (even with the decline in quality in the recent years), and I find their pieces are almost always more flattering than other brands.
