It’s mail day!! Guys, I was hoping to return all of these items but I really like them a lot. Keep reading to see what my first impressions are of the Shift in Time Jumpsuit, Energy Bra High Neck Long Line Shibori.
When I placed my order for this jumpsuit I assumed I’d be returning it right away. Jumpsuits are a hard look to pull off for someone curvy-petite and with a very long torso. I don’t think I’ve ever tried on a jumpsuit before (and I pretty much always try them on) that has nailed the fit so well.
I ordered this in a size up, and although it’s nice and relaxed fitting throughout, for my body type I would not stay TTS. I don’t want any pulling anywhere as that’s usually where jumpsuits go wrong for me. Either they are loose in the top half and pull at the inseam, or they are too short in the top half and too baggy and long in the bottom half. This fits perfect!
The material is perfect! It’s not soft or particularly silky. This is a matte nylon trouser material with a 12% lycra stretch. It’s a light, breathable and crisp fabric that almost feels like a light thin poplin cotton. This is kind of like the ideal summer bed linen. Slightly rough cotton sheets are the best in the summer because they are so breathable and they don’t cling to your skin. (Look for percale sheets if you are shopping for linens!)
The zip front is genius. It makes bathroom trips super easy. I also really like the tie front. The waist cinch is needed to give me definition on an area that tends to look really elongated in jumpsuits. The cuffed hem at the ankles is great too because you can wear the pants higher, and fold over the top of the cuff.
This is a keeper for me and I plan to wear it with really pretty sandals and big sunglasses. It’s such a no brainer outfit that looks put together and stylish, but it’s essentially loungewear.
After about 11 years of blogging I have accumulated a ton of sports bras. They are a practical purchase and an essential piece for any athletic woman. I have so many that I think I stopped buying sports bras three years ago and haven’t felt the urge to buy anymore. Until the Energy Bra Long Line High Neck showed up. These where a frivolous purchase based simply on loving the colors. I especially love the grapefruit shibori. It’s bright and VIBRANT. I ordered my usual size 10 and the fit is slightly snugger than my other Energy Bras, but then again they have been worn and washed a ton. They aren’t uncomfortably snug.
This is my first Long Line/High Neck Energy Bra and I really like the fit. The long line isn’t too long or tight that I’d notice a difference in feel between this and a regular energy bra. The high neck is a really great option for those days I don’t want my cleavage spilling out, especially with a lower cut or drapey tank top. What I most like though about this bra is how well that bigger profile will layer under tanks with looser armholes. I think this bra will pair really nicely layered under the grey Ease Of It All Dress.

What do you guys think? Did your orders come in yet? Let us know your first impressions of what you ordered on Tuesday.
By the way, check out the Lululemon inspired art I made! My kids wanted some typographical artwork for their bedrooms and being crafty I decided it should be custom and that they should pick out meaningful quotes instead of just buying whatever. After making theirs I decided to make my own for my coronavirus workout area as motivation/inspiration.
