I decided to stop in at my store because I wanted to try on the Brisk Ear Warmer vs the Brisk Running Toque to see what looked better and felt most comfortable and decided to try on the Heather Lolo Effortless Pullover while I was there. I tried it on in my Stride and Scuba Hoodie size 8 and it felt really snug in the arms, probably ok if you don’t mind that or if you have thin arms but I hate that feeling. I felt the body was roomy enough in this size that if I went up a size it would be too roomy and boxy. I have a feeling these are going to be marked down very soon, not so much because of the style of it but because of the awkward fit difference between the arms and the body. The one thing I really liked about this hoodie was the large hood in the back and also the distressed seams in the back of the hood. I hate that the logo is not embroidered on and just looks like a worn screen print.
As far as the Brisk Running items goes, I ended up with the Ear Warmers instead of the Toque because the Toque looked just awful on me. I’ll get it later if it’s cold enough that I need it but for now the fashionable choice trumped. The Toque does actually cover your ears and is quite warm so you don’t need to get both items, but if you like the way toques look on you than I would get the toque. I also grabbed the Neck Warmer because it was small and light and looks like it has a cinch cord in it so you can tighten it up and I figured I would probably use it to cover my mouth to warm my breath.
I also saw the SE CRB’s and it’t not lined with circle mesh but with a small edge of luon in contrasting color. I also tried on the Static Relaxed Fit Crops with the Lolo waist and I love them. As soon as there out in a full length pant I’m grabbing them.
I hope this fit review helps you decide what size to grab for the Effortless Hoodie if you’ve been on the fence about it.
