I live in Carhartt overalls
Reviewed by ArchyGrl from SW Colorado on Friday, October 20, 2017
I own a variety of Carhartt overalls (cotton-painters, demin, duck/sandstone) in both men's and women's cuts and wear them practically everyday for work. I'm 5'9", curvey (38D/size 12/14) and all over the place with Carhartt's sizing. If you're not familiar with this material, its thick and stiff, good for fall/winter/spring wear, with little stretch and forgiveness. In this particular style i bought a 14/34 (when it was available) and they're snug but comfortable and perfect length with work boots). I also purchased a 16/32 which is looser/hangs longer on me, but more comfortable with long underwear underneath. As other reviewers have stated, the straps have very little adjustment span, but i personally didnt need to adjust much to cover my chest. The torso is longish (i have longer torso and the crotch hangs down to my upper thigh in the 16, but sits perfectly in the 14). I recommend sizing at least one size up if you have curves or some padding around the middle/front. Any kind of non-flat stomach will be accentuated (good or bad is up to you). The pairs of 2nds I received had no decernable defects in the fabric, incorrect stitching or random buttonless holes.
