Thank you to Mrs. O for her always thoughtful and thorough fit review posts! I’d like to do a bunch of fit reviews soon but right now I only have my Box It Out Jogger and Press Pause Jogger in the queue for this weekend. I am in transition and living amongst a ton of boxes so I won’t be able to do fit reviews from home until I’m in my new place and have set up for it.
For the tall ladies out there, I’m happy to report that the In Movement 7/8 Tight is long. It’s not as short as the recent 7/8 tights that have been coming out. These 7/8 tights were definitely full length on me. For the shorter ladies, I’m not sure how much they could hem these because of the bottom seam that swirls around to the front. But there’s definitely enough space to be able to hem them. It would just depend on how much you need to hem them. I ended up getting the 7/8 tights as well as the crops because it’s a nice, basic solid black tight without reflective or mesh detail.
I didn’t particularly care for this LS. I really like the color but the fit was awkward. In comparison to the sleeves, the body of the LS was too loose and the way the seams were sewn in the back, it didn’t drape as nicely as it could have. The front looked like a regular slightly loose fitting LS until you lifted your arms and had bat wings (from the back) rather than down the middle of the side seam. I think if it draped a bit more in the front it would have been nicer. This LS is a looser TTS. I like the length of the back but the drape didn’t work well for me. I just think it made me look wide from the back. Perhaps if it were made with modal, it might have looked better.
Although I liked the neckline and how this tank fit around the shoulders (it was a flattering cut), the middle part was too loose and awkward looking. I don’t think removing the security tag would have fixed the front draping issue. Also, because it’s a straight hem, the loose sides flared weirdly. I think if it were a curved hem it would have given a better silhouette and illusion. Again, because of the seams in the back (and cut of the fabric) it didn’t drape in the back as nicely as it could have. The LS and tank was a no for me. I just don’t think it did anything for me. When I saw myself in it, it was a “eh, it’s ok” reaction. I’d love to hear how others wear it and what they pair with it to make it work. I suspect if I had narrower shoulders, it would look better.
These WUs had a very nice feel and texture to it. The fabric was just heavy enough to make it feel like it will keep you warm during the colder months (but not in extreme cold). The herringbone pattern was smaller than seasons past, which I liked better. These are TTS and fully opaque. Even though these are low rise, I didn’t think they were too low or hit me in an awkward place on my waist. Since these are full length tights, if I got them, I would definitely have to hem them. There was a lot of extra material at the bottom. Because these weren’t special enough I didn’t get them. LOL, I can’t get everything I want. I have to learn better self-control and moderation. Haha!
