5.0 out of 5 starsContoured fit but not skin tight
Reviewed in the United States on 10 April 2018
This Escape Short Sleeve Graphic Jersey from Pearl iZUMi is just gorgeous and perfectly designed for biking or other, active sports.
It's made of a 100% polyester, moisture wicking, mesh knit fabric that is stretchy enough for comfort but won't bag out of shape. It has a raglan sleeve that can accommodate even my broad shoulders. It features a full length, separating zipper closure and a high neck. It's cut longer in the back than the front and has elastic in the bottom hem so it covers your butt when riding and won't ride up. Finally, there are three, open pockets at the lower back area for carrying things like your cell phone, keys, wallet, etc.
The graphic is even prettier than in the pictures and wraps around to the right back. The shirt is mostly black with vibrant, hot pink and a bit of fluorescent green. Really gorgeous.
It has a contoured fit but not skin tight. I would say the sizing is spot on. The medium is just a bit too tight for comfort although it stretches enough to handle my large bust and zips fine. Just a few pounds to lose for it to be a wonderful fit. ;-)
Not only would I wear this for biking, it would be excellent over a swimsuit on the beach. I love it.
Perfect fit - perfect shirt. I have zero complaints. Quality is what you would expect from Pearl iZumi, great looks in a bold but fun and sports inspired theme (pink with black). Elongated back for full coverage even on the road. Zipper works well - comfortable, cool wicking fabric. Snug fit but not tight ---comfortable enough to wear for extended period of time. I like everything about this top and would purchase again in the future.
I have about 5 of these tops, so obviously I like them. The fit is always consistent and they are comfortable, no seams in the wrong places, and don't pull on my shoulders, which a lot of jerseys do because I have broad shoulders.
