Fit Review Friday! Soft Ambitions High Rise Short, Soft Ambitions Crop Crew!

July 23, 2020


Happy Thursday/Friday! You guys are in a special treat today. I know I'm posting this a bit early too. I'm really excited about this review. The Soft Ambitions Short was all the rage and after reading the reviews on the Soft Ambitions Crop Crew, it piqued my interest. So one morning as I was stalking the app for restocks, I was lucky enough to find the shorts in my size and placed an order along with the matching top. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. 


The first thing I noticed is how soft the fabric feels. It's a modal blend but it feels like buttery suede. It's very luxurious and thick. Similar to the Rally Wrap I bought from the sale, which I love by the way. You kind of just want to keep petting the fabric over and over. It has this smooth velvety feel to it. The one thing that stands out is how thick it is too. It's very plushy and for a pair of shorts I think it's a little too heavy for outdoors in the summer heat, but it's probably fine for indoor lounging in the cold air conditioning.


I found the fit to be true to size. I'm wearing my usual size 4 and the waist and hips fit well. The inseam is 4 inches and I just didn't find it to be very flattering. I don't love how it looks on me, so I am returning this pair. I will say the comfort level of these shorts are insane. I can see why people love them so much, but for the price of $78 plus tax, it's a no for me.


Before I get into the next review of the Soft Ambitions Crop Crew, I wanted to show some photos of how the set looks together. 




Okay the Soft Ambitions Crop Crew is freaking amazing! I know the sleeves are super long on me, but apparently it is the trend right now. Bear with me for a minute to show some photos of very petite Ariana Grande who tops in anywhere from 5 feet to 5-foot 3. Maybe her heels boost her to 5-foot 3. She is teeny tiny and she really rocks the oversized look.






Here are a couple of photos of Kim Kardashian who is also 5-foot 3, which really makes me think Ariana Grande is closer to 5 feet.



Now that I've seen a lot of photos of huge sleeves and poofy sleeves on Kim K and Ariana Grande I think I'm comfortable wearing the Soft Ambitions Crop Crew with no problem. Part of it is wearing things confidently and how comfortable you feel in your clothes. Confidence is a game changer. Here is a picture of the two of them together. 


I think this is a really cute look too, just randomly found this on the internet.

Okay, back to the review! The Soft Ambitions Crop Crew feels exactly the same as the short. Which means when you pull this top over your head, it feels like you're wrapped up in a blanket from heaven. It feels that good. I'm not even kidding! I love it so much, I am still stalking the app every morning for a restock of the heathered graphite gray!! So far, no luck.



I'm wearing it with a pair of On The Fly Crop Woven. My husband really likes how this outfit looks actually. Here are some photos to show how the sleeves look with hands in the pocket vs out of the pocket. I personally think the whole look is super cute. The length hits slightly above my belly button in the front and it is a little longer in the back. The fit is loose and boxy but that is the style of this top. I'm all about comfy clothing right now and this fits the bill. 




Here's one more photo of the sleeves rolled up with On The Fly Shorts. What do you think of the look? If you hate it let me know. If I managed to change your mind, I would definitely want to know. Sizes are going fast. Black seems to be the least popular size. I think this top definitely looks best in the gray, but I really like the light color of beech wood for summer. Cool summer days and nights, not the 100 degree hot humid weather I'm currently experiencing. 😅


One last thing, I found no issue with the collar. Perfectly comfortable. That's it for me! Hope you all have a great weekend!! 

Shop:



New to WMTM

(I found these to be true to size. Review here.)

(True to size, I usually end up hemming them just a bit for more crop length.)

(My favorite pair.)

(I have a pair of these coming with the black as well.)

Inner Glow Short Modal (not on sale)

The reviews say these fit more true to size. It's a different fabric and they cost $58 or $39 on sale, which seems a lot more reasonable these days! 😆 Happy shopping!

  1. I was also disappointed by how the shorts looked on me - they looked great on others, but it was very unflattering on my 5'0" frame.

    I tried on the sweater in store - I have mixed feelings about it - maybe I'm just not used to the baggy sleeves!

    1. Hi Evelyn, the shorts are definitely harder to pull off than the top.

      Baggy sleeves are definitely an acquired taste! =D

  2. I like the Soft Ambitions Crop Crew on you so much that I just purchased it in the heathered grey color! :)

    2. I got the L/XL, I like things to be oversized. Hopefully I’m not swimming in it!

    3. oh wow, I do wonder what the difference is between the sizes. Definitely report back!

    4. Just got my Soft Ambitions Crop Crew today! I’m surprisingly not swimming in the L/XL and I love the material on it so much! Thanks for the review of this one, it is definitely a keeper.

    5. Wow that was fast! I'm so glad you love it! The fabric is so amazing. I'm still hoping to snag a heather gray.

      BTW What did you think of the Retreat Yourself Hoodie?

      Delete
    6. I love that as well! It’s the perfect mix of sweater and hoodie in one. :)

    7. I love the material of the Soft Ambitions Crop Crew so much that I just purchased the Get Centered Crop Hoodie since it looks to be the same material. Not sure where the cut out will hit on me but I figured I’d try it out.

      Delete
    8. Ahhhh which color did you get? I can't decide if I want the pink or the gray...

      Delete
    9. I chose black, I tend to gravitate towards black a lot. I really hope it fits!

    10. I got my Get Centered Crop Hoodie today! I purchased my usual size and I really like it. The cut out part on the chest does not hit an awkward place, which I was concerned about. It’s the same material as the Soft Ambitions Crop Crew which I love. This hoodie is a keeper for me!

      Delete
    11. Ohhhh! Which top do you like better? Soft Ambitions or Get Centered?

      I ended up deciding with the pink color. I hope it works for me too!

      Delete
    12. That’s a tough one. I think I like the Get Centered hoodie a bit more. I like the oversized hood and I like the cut out detail, it adds a bit of uniqueness to it. :D Let me know how it works for you!

      Delete
    13. I think I like the Get Centered hoodie just a tad more. I like the oversized hood and the cut out detail, I think it adds some interest to the look. Let me know how you like yours!

      Delete
  3. The crew is super cute on you! I’m not a fan of cropped tops so it’s an easy pass for me, but it looks really nice on you especially with the On the Fly Crop!

    I couldn’t find the short on the Canadian site and it’s probably sold out. It’s kind of cute but the price is too steep. Wonder if you’ve noticed it but one leg is longer than the other. The same thing happened to the two pair of shorts I’ve ordered.

    1. The Soft Ambitions Short? I didn't notice! It could be the angle of how I'm standing. But now that you have gotten a few like that I'll pay more attention next time. I do have some shorts coming so I'll definitely check.

      Delete
    2. Take a look at the two back view pictures. The right leg looks shorter than the left.

      Delete
    3. Good eye! Wish I could confirm it for sure, but it def looks like it.

      Delete
  4. The soft ambition short did not look right on me either. I am not sure if it is the inseam length or how it flares out on the bottom. Andrea is right that some of my recent purchases had uneven inseams, one pair of shorts and one pair of joggers. I did not return them because I really love everything else about them.

    The crop crew looks so good on you. I ordered it in XS/S. Like you and everyone else, I prefer the grey color, but beech wood looks nice too. Hopefully it does not look too short on me. You are such an enabler lol.

    1. Interesting about the uneven inseams. I will have to pay more attention now.

      Haha, thanks! Let me know how you like it when you get it! I'm debating on the Get Centered Crop Hoodie since it looks like it's made of the same material.

      Delete
  5. You've sold me on this crew! I need one now... Though I wonder which color! I saw someone have a heathered light grey one so maybe there'll be more colors.

    1. I hope so too! I'm still hoping I will get a heathered gray in this top.
