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.
I had a Hanes shirt I had purchased about 10 years ago and absolutely loved (still going strong!), but it’s finally starting to fade from black to that obviously faded color. It suddenly dawned on me that I should see if that style was still made - we’re talking Hanes here so not a company influenced heavily by the trends - or at least something similar. I found this which looked like it was made of the same comfy, durable, fabric and similar fit with roughly the same neckline and 3/4 length sleeves - all boxes checked plus a killer price! Based on the TruFit model info, I should have ordered the Large (I’m roughly a 12) but I always order up a size because of upper arm issues and I’m not fond of things clinging to my body - I love the comfort of a bit of spandex, but not how it looks when outlining my muffin top! I saw a few reviews saying it ran a bit small and looked at the photos and decided to order up 2 sizes, knowing this fabric and cut (assuming they were as I expected) would be very forgiving on sizing. My XXL came and it was perfect. Same fabric, same sort of fit as my old shirt. If I had the body of my youth and was fine with a more form-fitting top, the L would be a great fit. With my arm issues, the XL would absolutely have fit me and I’d have been happy with it. But the XXL was very comfy and just floats over my body in the middle without being overly loose in the shoulders or hips, the two places it actually contacts the body. It just hangs more in a straight line without accenting the dreaded bulge. With my extra 10+ pandemic pounds, this was exactly what was needed! The fabric is soft and substantial - not at all thin or see-through - and has enough stretch to be comfortable and allow a good fit in several sizes, depending on how tight or loose a top you prefer, flaws you wish to disguise, etc. It’s well-constructed and basic enough to be worn on its own (no jacket) with scarves or jewelry to dress it up a bit, plainer for more casual, and can be layered under sweaters, etc without lots of lumps or discomfort. Length is about mid to lower hip depending on your height and how you chose to size the top. Had I bought the size intended by TruFit, it would definitely have been mid-hip. Two sizes up and it was lower but still not bum-covering enough for leggings IMO. I was happy enough with it that I ordered 3 more.
I'm reading all the reviews about the neckline being too wide, boatneck, sloppy, etc., and wondering what happened to MY shirt? The neckline on mine is SMALLER than pictured, like the crewneck on a mens t-shirt. It doesn't show my collar bone(s?), and makes the shirt pretty non-descript. I'm 160 lbs/5'6' and bought an XXL, have a longish, slenderish neck, and average shoulder width. The rest of the shirt was fine, and the neck was sewn well, but is cut differently than photo. This was true in both the black and the turquoise that I bought.
I hate short sleeves so I was thrilled to find this top with 3/4 sleeves. It is a little form fitting in the middle but I like that since I feel it makes it look more work appropriate than a normal boxy t-shirt. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the black color seems a little washed out to me. I wish it had been "blacker" if that makes any sense!
I bought this shirt for my mom in a 2 xl it was very fitted and ran on the smaller size. She kept this as a lounge shirt because she doesn't believe in returns or exchange lol. Not a bad price and recieved on time but the sizing is small so size up if you are a plus size woman.
