Fit Review Friday! Glyde Scuba Hoodie Boysenberry

March 7, 2019




Happy Friday everyone! I can't believe it's already eight days into March. Today I have a review of the Glyde Scuba Hoodie that I purchased last month when I was on a shopping ban. 😐 As many of you know I'm a sucker for purple and just fell in love with the boysenberry color. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically wear a size 4 in Define Jackets and size 2 in Scuba Hoodies

After much debate about purchasing this hoodie in a size 2 or 4, I ended up going with the 2 and I'm glad I did as it is very flattering look on a petite frame for a jacket to look fitted. This jacket is short and hits me right above the hips. Which is very rare! I would assume for taller folks this jacket may hit at the waist. There's definitely no coverage on the bum. I'm wearing a slightly longer tank underneath this hoodie and I think it looks cute. The sleeves are long on me but I don't think it is too long that it bothers me. I've been wearing this hoodie all week and really love it.



The color boysenberry is a deeply saturated medium-dark purple. The fabric has a nice sheen but is not shiny. I prefer wearing this jacket with the Sherpa fleece dickie zipped up and the outer layer unzipped. It feels very comfortable this way. 

 

Once the hoodie is zipped up on the outer layer it definitely feels tighter and you can see a bit of the dickie outline underneath in the two photos below. The other thing I'd like to mention that I found a little annoying- the dickie is not completely attached by a zipper. The zipper does not go all the way around. The zipper starts at the bottom of the jacket but stops around the shoulder and then the collar is only attached by one button near the rip tag. It does feel floppy and it take a couple of seconds to make sure the sherpa collar is lined up correctly when putting the hoodie on. A zipper all the way around would have made it more secure. I may update this post with a photo this weekend.




The jacket hits a little bit below my waist and there isn't too much extra fabric as I have read some reviewers state. Overall I'm very pleased with this purchase! I'm almost tempted to purchase the black one in a size 4 to give me a little more room in case I ever want to layer. The size 2 is very fitted and I can only wear a thin top underneath. So far I've been wearing this in 40 degree weather and it's fine. If it is below freezing I think I would want something heavier or I would definitely recommend sizing up if you want to layer for colder temperatures. For the sale price, I think it is worth it!



That's all for me! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. Looks really nice on you but glad I didn’t order it cos it would’ve been too short on me. I have a Scuba Hoodie in Boysenberry and the color is gorgeous. Not sure if I like the sheen of the Glyde Scuba Hoodie though.

    Sleeves might be too long if you order the black in size 4. Don’t know why Lululmeon always makes the sleeves of their jackets super long ...

    1. True about the sleeves on the size 4. Guess I should just stick to just one. It's definitely a short jacket. Not for the taller folks!
