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 am wary of any line that is marked "essentials", it usually indicates a lesser quality but this is so much more than a bargain-basement clothing item. It looks and feels so good. I like the length of it, coming down to the hips (slimming) and the softness of the garment. There have been no cutting corners to achieve a great price. The small detail of the contrasted zipped pockets is smart. I am a UK size 14 and on the recommendation of another's review I bought the "large". Perfect fit.
The garment is actually more a French navy marl (its darker than in the picture) Its reasonably thick, with a fleece backing. It fitted me very well. Don't think that because it's a 'home' brand, it's somehow inferior-I've never had a complaint about quality or fit of Amazon Essentials.
What a great top! So much better than expected, fantastic quality and a great fit and very cosy. Love the pockets, this top will be worn a lot and I will be buying another one! Definitely will look at other Amazon own brand clothing in future 🙂
Nice thick material, well made. Ordered a large as it said 14/16 , at most I'm a 16 however this came up a bit small/tight around the bottom, even with the drawstring loosened all the way out. I liked it enough to order a size up though. Good quality hoodie.
