Thanks to Mrs. O for her guest fit review of the Water Bound Hoodie, Move With Ease Jacket, Mix And Mesh Tank, and City Trek Trouser II. I’m especially glad I ordered the Water Bound Hoodie with the Women’s Day discount because it looks adorable on her.
I really liked the detailing of this jacket when it was uploaded and the colors offered. The length wasn’t too short and I have a long torso. (I don’t mind cropped jackets). My big issue is how slim fitting it is. It’s made from Nulu which wasn’t constricting. It felt comfortable zipped and unzipped. The Nulu was buttery soft. But I don’t know when I would wear such a tight fitting, lightweight jacket. Also, I’m only wearing a bra underneath. If you were to wear a looser tank or shirt, it would definitely bunch up underneath. This is definitely a size up jacket. You could probably size up twice but I’m not sure how the seams would look and the length of the sleeves would probably be too long.
This was another item I was interested in from this week’s upload. I thought the length might be too short but it wasn’t. I really liked the length of this hoodie. It was a very lightweight fabric, which provides UV protection. On warm days, it will probably still feel cool enough to wear long sleeves. It was very comfortable and not constricting. I was really drawn to this hoodie because of the color. My pictures doesn’t do the color justice. The website photos are an accurate depiction of the true color. I thought I saw the hoodie in a different color (lavendar-ish) that’s not online. But I can’t be sure. This hoodie is meant to be slim fitting and is TTS. Personally, I have so many Lululemon items and don’t really have a need for this type of item. If I got it, I’m almost certain I wouldn’t grab for it very often. It’s something I will mull over if it goes on markdown. For those of you that have the older version, how and when do you wear it?
Please excuse the bad bra I’m wearing for this tank. I was too lazy to go find a bra that would work. The Ed told me someone tried it on with a Free to Be Zen Bra and it looked good. This tank is made from a lightweight fabric — probably swift — which is not delicate (like the Taryn Toomey collection). I wouldn’t worry about snagging this tank. I think this tank is a re-do of the Anew Tank but better because it doesn’t have the side slits and billow out in the front. I really liked the delicate and feminine shape and feel of this tank. It is TTS. This is a tank I will consider on markdown.
