To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The material alone was horrible. Stay dry? Well, yeah, because it repelled sweat and made it run down your back. Only, that wasn't the worst part. I bought 2 thinking... a great little shirt for running. No. I tried it two ways. Just wearing a sports bra beneath, and it rode up against the cotton of the bra. Imagine pulling it down 400 times as I tried to do my 5 mile run. Then, today, I tried with a tank underneath, thinking the bra was the issue. Nope. Rode up. I literally pulled it off at mile 2 and tossed it in the trash. Not my trash, mind you. That's how much I hated it. Basically, ladies, if you are actually going to wear this while doing more than walking, and you have breasts, fugetaboutit.
This is probably just due to my ignorance, so I didn't deduct any stars for it, but I just wanted to make sure people are aware that this is a work-out shirt, NOT a regular shirt, even though the model is shown wearing it with a pair of jeans. In other words, it's made of that slippery, gym clothing material. It would look silly to try to wear this as a regular shirt with a pair of jeans, so the photo is misleading. I'm assuming I was supposed to have known that "sports" = "gym clothes," though, so this is probably my fault.
Other than that, it's a solid 4-star shirt. It's comfortable and the sizing is correct, even if it's a bit tight at the hips and loose at the waist. (Ie. It leans a little toward unisex; the women's cut shaping is very slight.)
Sadly I had to return because it was smaller than my usual XL. I am 5’2” and a plump 176lbs I usually wear a 12/14 a large, but I wanted a tad more room so it wouldn’t be a clinger to my menopausal belly. It fit but wasn’t as Rooney as I anticipated, more like a large to me. The stomach portion grazed my belly almost every move. I ordered three of them, black, pink, blue. They feel awesome, very lightweight, not see through on any of my colors, I fear given the material it would pick if you had ragged nail or it caught on something, but I guess that’s the trade off given the materials nature. You can’t beat the price $7 for each, other brands are quadruple that at least. I do believe they’d wash well, not hold most stains, and dry super quick.
I bought these shirts for my kitchen job since they're fairly inexpensive so I won't mind getting food and oil on them. If you've worked in a kitchen you know it can get very hot and I'm a sweaty person already so I needed something thin and breathable. These shirts make my job so much more comfortable and they dry quickly if I spill any liquids on them. I normally wear a L but I know athletic clothing is almost always made to be more snug so I bought an XL. I kinda wish I had bought an XXL because it's a little tight in the chest still and I don't like how it clings to my stomach. I didn't bother exchanging them because I needed them for work and didn't want to wait another week. I will be trying to get in shape this year too so they may not fit snug for long. If you are busty and chubby like me I would recommend going 2 sizes up if you like loose clothing like I do. Other than the fit these shirts are great and are easy to wash. I bought black ones but I haven't noticed any oil stains yet. The material is also very soft. I might consider buying more in the future to wear as workout shirts.
I was skeptical getting this shirt because the reviews mentioned it being too small a lot. I’m typically a large in shirts (heavy chested) but have a pretty flat stomach. I got the XL because I didn’t want to feel constricted. The XL was perfect and flowy but didn’t feel too baggy. I recommend this shirt and it’s very soft.
Perfect!! I wear polyester shirts for work since they are bleach resistant. I have been searching for the perfect shirts. I purchased some of the amazon basic ones and they collect lint like crazy. I purchased another brand and they were a very stiff fabric that wrinkled like crazy. These are perfect!! I purchased in extra large so that they would be roomy and they fit nicely(normally would wear large in this type of shirt for a closer fit). They are loose on the tummy area without looking strange and crazy big.
