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.
Good and roomy... but very tight arms. Size charge does not explain the difference between the XX-Large or XXX-Large and the 2X or 3X. But since the sizes were intermingled on the size choice drop-down, I guessed that XXX-Large was between 2X and 3X. I wear a 2X generally but no colors were available in 2X or 3X. Thus my choice of XXX-Large. When it arrived... the size printed inside the shirt was 3X. The fit is nice and generous around bust waist and hips... which I wanted. But the arms (top to cuff) are uncomfortably tight. I have heavy arms so I expected it to be tight (from previous comments)... but to have them tight from top to cuff is disappointing.
A little boxier than I like but it's a decent sweatshirt for lounging around. I'm petite, 4', 11'' and the waist length is good for me. I've never purchased a 1x before and did so on this occasion because many people have stated that this top runs small (usually wear XL top). I didn't find that to be true for me, but then again, I'm petite. I'm hoping it shrinks a little in the washer/dryer. If so, I will purchase a few more. I would like this top more of it were ever so slightly more fitted and maybe 1 in. longer. The shade of purple is very pretty...
Edit: After the first wash this sweatshirt did shrink a little - very little. I'll probably purchase another.
I like this sweatshirt very much. I bought a size larger than normal based on other reviews. I'm glad I did because it fits well and is very comfortable. I particularly like that the banded bottom is not tight so the sweatshirt hangs straight down across my hips. I wear this often and it washes well. I don't put it in the dryer though because I don't want to risk it shrinking. It dries quite well on a hanger in the bathroom so that isn't a problem for me.
I love these sweatshirts, they are one of my favorite things to wear when it's cold and rainy! I would highly recommend ordering a size larger than you normally do. That's what I did after reading the reviews and I'm glad I took the advice. I normally wear a 2X but I wanted something that was going to fit a bit more loose so I ordered a 3X and it fit just right for what I wanted. The arms are a little tight on these when you first put them on for the size but that's fine. I'm just shy of 5'8 and it would be awesome if they were just a tad longer too. Otherwise, they are warm and comfy. They are a really great buy for the price. I'll definitely be buying more.
