I realize some of you don’t like Lululemon, but some do. So for you, this question is for you.
How do you compare Lululemon sizing to your normal everyday sizes?
What size do you normally wear in jeans and what do you wear in pants at Lululemon?
What size do you normally wear in shirts, and what do you wear in shirts at Lululemon?
Height/weight may be helpful if you feel so kind. Also what is your experience with the brand? We don’t have a Lululemon near us for me to try these on, so I need to order online. Thanks in advance!!

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)

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.
