Amazing reader ‘Mrs. O’ has shared with us some fit reviews with the help of her awesome husband taking photos for us. Huge thank you to the both of them!!
Mrs. O’s Fit Review:
I sized up in this tank because my TTS fit weird when it was tied in the front. It cuts too narrow around the shoulder and chest when it is tied in the front and looks like it’s on backwards. When tied in the back, the front of the tank looks better. On the scooped neck side, the hem is more of a draped, curved hem, which I think is flattering. Again, even on the scooped neck side, I thought the shoulders were cut in too much. Unless you wore a true racerback bra, you would have to adjust your front bra straps so it fit properly under the tanks straps. I liked the fabric. It’s similar to the Smooth Stride SS.
The WU in the arrow jacquard print is TTS. The print has texture but it feels smooth when wearing. The texture is on the outside rather than the underside. No problems with sheerness in my TTS. It’s a much thicker fabric than the Nulux. I really love this print. I was told that the Inspire Tight II in this print never made it to the stores in the US. So, even though it is completely sold out online on the US site, it should be arriving in stores soon. But this is different from what the GEC told me over the phone. She said the entire print in the Inspire Tight II is sold out in the US. She was uncertain if another run will be made.
Surprisingly, the Crescent Tank fit better than I thought it would and I didn’t hate it. I sized up from my TTS. My TTS was too cropped and it fit tighter than I liked. The fabric was light weight and very breathable. I suspect if you do any kind of movement, especially with arms up, it’s going to creep up a lot. Although I can see myself wearing this around town on errands, I wouldn’t spend that much money on a tank that would be ill fitting when working out. I know I would be constantly pulling it down.
This short fit TTS (size 6 in shorts). In the Jogger, I sized up from my TTS because in pants like these, I like them more relaxed. My TTS fit so it’s really just a fit preference. Like the NTS Jacket, the cuffs are a bit tight the first time you put them on but they loosen up. The fabric felt nice and I liked the back zip pocket.
I suspected that I would not like the fit of the shorts or jogger because shorts/pants with pockets (such as these) tend to pull and pucker across the hips on me. Also, on me, the pockets show through the front of the fabric. It’s just my body type. It doesn’t matter what designer brand it is. With street clothes, I cut out the pocket and have them sewn down. I wouldn’t do that with athletic pants because you need pockets.
