This IJWR tank looks like she went about 2 sizes smaller and it looks good that way on her. It’s funny how this top can have a totally different look TTS or sized down, cinched up or all the way down. I sized down on this one size (10) and it’s still pretty loose and baggy so I probably could have gone down to an 8 but for running purposes the baggier fit is nice.
It’s funny, whenever I take advice from the educators (Lulu and other stores) I end up coming back and returning the item for the size I originally thought looked best whether it be a size up or a size down. I think I’m just always in between 2 sizes so it depends on my mood. When I got my Stride II in Seattle in a size 10 the educator was adamant that this was the right size. I later tried it on for my hubby and he thought it was way too baggy. went to another Lulu and tried on the 8 and hubby and an educator both thought the 8 was the right size. It’s so subjective that I think I just have to go with my gut.
