Here is the promised second part of some recent try-ons. You can find part 1 here, and part 3 will be coming soon, too.
Reviewed in this post:
On the daily hoodie – fatigue fog
In flux jacket – plum
Yeah yoga tank – vintage pink
Weekend long sleeve – bordeaux drama/black cherry
Weekend short sleeve – white parallel stripe
For reference, I am 5’3″, and I typically wear a size 2 in lululemon tops and bottoms. Unless otherwise noted, that’s the size I’m wearing in these pics.
The on the daily hoodie has been gaining a lot of popularity so I was interested to try it on. It’s a lighter weight, warm-weather-friendly alternative to the scuba hoodie. I noticed that this hoodie both longer and looser than the scuba. It’s particularly loose through the waist, which I didn’t really like. I didn’t love the sleeves either, which are both too long (of course) and too loose for me. You would probably have to size down to get a look closer to the scuba hoodie. Overall, if I wanted a cotton zip-up hoodie with a generically loose fit, I don’t really feel the need to pay lulu prices for it. For comparison:
Here’s how my fatigue scuba hoodie fits (same size).
In contrast to the on the daily hoodie, the in flux is quite fitted in my normal size. I immediately noticed that the fabric pulls and pickers around the zipper in a way I thought sat oddly and wasn’t that impressed with the overall fit/look.
Btw, I’m wearing black cherry WUC in that pic, so now you know how black cherry and plum look next to each other. :)
Since the in flux jacket is the replacement for the DSJ, here’s a photo of how a DSJ fits me. The in flux is definitely shorter, and the sleeves seem a bit looser as well. The fit, in terms of tightness, seems comparable. While I do appreciate the more updated, modern styling of the in flux jacket, I think the construction and fit isn’t any better than the DSJ.
This tank is really cute. The scoop of the neckline is flattering, and the straps are delicate without cutting in. Support is low, but coverage was plenty for my vaguely full bustline. The back is a couple inches lower than a lot of other tanks, a semi-open back look that I think is really nice. Notice that the midsection is a bit on the looser side. I believe some people sized down because of this, but the nice thing is that it reduces potential stuffed sausage effects, especially since the material is pretty thin. This may make it move around during yoga, though.
Also, shameless: this style makes your shoulders look rockin’. :)
The weekend LS in my regular size was basically huge. I could be wearing my boyfriend’s shirt. As a petite person, I have to be careful with relaxed fits, since they usually just look like they’re swallowing me whole (or that I don’t know how to buy a proper size), while they might look cuter on a more “normal” sized person. I don’t need all my shirts to be form-fitting, but I think a size down, if available, would’ve been a better fit that would still be relaxed but not sloppy. The sleeves also seemed unnecessarily large on these. If they were a little more fitted, it would help balance the look, though I’m not sure how much sizing down would help with that.
The weekend SS was a bit better than it’s LS counterpart, but I still would’ve liked to try a size down. I liked the overall shape. I noticed that the cuffed sleeve was actually a lot of layers of fabric. It seemed like it had been rolled over 1 or 2 too many times, so it felt oddly bulky there. If that doesn’t bother you and you can get a size down, it’s a cute tee.
