Fit Review Well Being Sweater

I’ve been so curious about this new Well Being Sweater, because I love the way the heathered vapour color coordinates with the beautiful purples that are out now, and love that the back has is an open waffle weave. I found it fit really wide in the chest and underarms area though so I would consider sizing down in this, but the oversized look doesn’t look bad, it just looks really casual and laid back.  I think I would more strongly consider purchasing this sweater if it comes in quicksand, or deep forest. This is size 10 on me and I take a 10 in jackets, tanks and sweaters at Lululemon.

    Are they both in your TTS? The black one looks a little more fitted, and better, I think.

      Yes they are both the same size. I think with the black you just can’t see the excess fabric under the arms. They both felt about the same.

      I agree with Gail, the black one looks more fitted and better on you. Which one did you eventually buy?

        I didn’t buy one but it’s on my ‘waiting for markdown’ list

    Do you think you could wear this to work with a regular bra or is the back too see through to make that appropriate? Thanks 🙂

      Depends on your workplace. I couldn’t wear this open weave sweater to work, even with a sports bra, let alone a regular one.

    I like the black one as well on you. I found the other one took too much away from your shape.

    Wow, it really is a very relaxed, loose fit. Black one looked better on you but it may have been because we couldn’t see the extra fabric. Did you happen to try on a size down? I just thought the vapour looked way too big on you. I think you should definitely consider a size down.

    @Sara, I think it might be ok with a nude regular bra. It’s more obvious on the model because she’s wearing a white bra. It would also depend on what type of office you work in and what your position is. You might consider wearing a nude tank (the ones in the lingerie department; really thin material with really thin straps). I tend to use those type of tanks under a lot of loosely knit sweaters that might show too much bra.

      Thank you! I’m not in a very formal office, but I didn’t want my bra to be that obvious- but like you said, the model is wearing white so hopefully can nude will be less noticeable.

        I was wearing a nude bra and in certain lighting I could see it all in the back, especially since it’s so roomy. If I was modest, I would probably wear a light tank underneath.

          I agree, a tank would be more appropriate for office. if you have long hair even better.

    I just bought Athleta’s studio cinch sweater in light grey heather to go with my purple items. The material and cut are way better than LLL’s. I highly recommend.

    Lulumum, I think you could wear a size 6 in the Well being sweater! You shaped up wonderfully too.

      I agree! I was just about to suggest she try the 8 or the 6!

    I loved the open weave on the back, but I thought it was kind of meh from the front at that price point. I’d buy on a nice MD though.
