Boxy Fit but Good Value

Reviewed by Grad Student on a Budget from Cambridge, UK on Sunday, September 14, 2014
For the price, I think this shirt is a good deal. The fabric is warm and fleecy, although it seems like it may roughen or pill in the wash - time will tell. Unfortunately, the straight boxy cut is very unflattering, especially to hourglass-shapes like me: it made me look much larger and bulkier through the torso. I ordered both the Small and Medium, and I am an hourglassy smallish medium frame (34C bust - 27" waist - 38.5" hips, with broader shoulders). The Small fit my body but the sleeves were too short. While the Medium is very baggy through the body and comes down to very low hip/crotch, the sleeves at least are the right length (covering my wrists and going a bit beyond), and I can deal with the extra length/width. The lack of zippers or seaming means that the shirt is very comfortable and would be great for sleeping in, which is how I will use it if I keep it. While the fit of the Outdoor Research and Mountain Hardwear fleeces are more flattering than this one, for 1/4 of the price one really can't complain too much...
