Ugh. I just finished "one of those days." You know those days where nothing goes right and you're left wondering if that fortune teller in Hawaii really put a curse on you? It is on these truly wretched days when I need a super-hero-strength gob of goodness. Most of the time that would mean pizza, wine and a bad rom-com, but today I need to wrap myself in some goodness and it starts with my Scuba Hoodie.
If you are not familiar with lululemon's iconic hoodie it is a staple item for anyone who appreciates soft, warm, thick, preshrunk cotton. The preshrunk part gets me the most when wearing this hoodie because it never changes. Like a reliable friend, it stays true to you and maintains its "hug-like" shape. It also has a no-buckle zipper seam since all zippers are sewn in after preshrinking. Its high neck and large hood will keep you warm and happy.
Hoodie evolution takes time, great guest feedback, and entrepreneurial designers!
The first Scuba Hoodie shape is released as a premium item to wear to and from yoga class. It becomes an instant classic with its short body length, luxurious thick fabric and snug fit.
The Remix Lulu Hoodie is born. With a slightly longer body length, lighter fabric and a shower of artistically colored prints the Remix lulu hoodie has garnered somewhat of a "collectors" item status.
A third iteration of lululemon hoodies is released with the familiar name, "Scuba," and with some additional features. Thumbholes are added, the body length is slightly longer, stretchy side panels are inserted to create a fitted look and unique logos were used.
I am 5'8 with a medium chest and curvy hips and have been in a committed relationship with the Scuba Hoodie for some time. The Scuba Hoodie represents my oath of goodness to myself because it takes me to and from my yoga practice, surrounds me in warmth and has my back -- even on the most disastrous of days.
