Huge thank you to reader Ms. L for sharing with us her review of the Sayang Collection pieces she got from Carbon38. These reader reviews are so amazingly helpful because this way we can get a variety of body types and function perspectives on pieces. If you’d like to provide a fit review of fitness apparel, just shoot me an email! I have many more guest fit reviews coming this weekend, including Ms. O’s review of the Lululemon x The Class by Taryn Toomey Collection.
Ms. L’s review:
Here’s my fit review of the Carbon 38 Sayang Collection . I tried taking pics but it did not come out well so I’d thought I’d just provide a fit review with few pics. FYI- I am 5’2″, 116#s, 34C(actually 32, but get 34), athletic build., Lululemon bottoms in size 4, tops in size 4, bra size 6.
Beige in XS- loved the quality and feel of these leggings but really think this would suit a taller gal. The beautiful knot work goes down the side of leg so I couldn’t even get this altered if I wanted. Also, this was very high rise on me at 5’2″ but that didn’t bother me since the waist band was very wide. Here are a few pics. Unfortunately, I did return this as the ankle portion was so narrow and snug which made it difficult to pull the leggings up. 🙁 also, the fit on the body was nice. I felt it was little snug on the Hammies; the Small size may have fixed this, but I would still be dealing with the length and tightness of the ankle issue.
Black in Small- this was a nice soft hoodie with a nice length. Not short and not too long (keep in mind my petite frame). The beautiful work on back was very nice but little too exposed for a hoodie. This went back. Also, the S was perfect if you like your hoodies little looser.
Black in Small – beautiful bra with detailing in front and back. The small is a good fit once on but it is very difficult to take off. I’m keeping after debating over the fact it is such a mother to take off.
Beige in size small. This bra was very beautiful, too. It is quite plain in the front but stunning in the back. Material on both bras had this silky luxtreme type of feel. But I like this better lol. My only gripe with this bra was the lower band was little loose on me.
Comparison with both bras.
Beige small. This was a nice loose fitting tank. I will prob wear as athleisure wear more than working out in. Very nice cotton and will show your bra on side and obviously back due to the detailing. . I will prob wear with a white Lulu bra.
