Fit Review! Athleta Store Try Ons! Crazy Cozy Chill Hoodie, Mantra Wrap, Recover Hoodie

October 4, 2020



Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend! We went walking along a trail which we have NEVER done before. Usually we just go to parks but this was almost kind of like semi-hiking for us city folk. 😆 It was actually really nice, we ran into a family of deer and saw lots of chipmunks and squirrels which scared us at times, lol. I would definitely do it again! 

This is the first store try on review I've done since March!! I tried getting into Lululemon but everything is by appointment only and by the time I got to the store the appointments were all booked for the day! So, here we are at Athleta. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically size 4 in Lululemon tops, for Athleta this translates to size XXS/PXS or XL/XXL in girls.


This is actually Athleta Girls, and I really like this hoodie. The color is shaded teal and it's really beautiful in person. The photos are pretty close to real life and I have to say I'm pretty tempted to order this online. I passed this up in the store but I keep thinking about it. I'm wearing size XXL for the oversized look, I could have easily fit the XL for a more true to size fit. The one thing that I did find slightly weird is the non existent band/hem at the bottom. It kind of folds inwards. It wasn't uncomfortable, it's just not what I'm used to from sweatshirts. This was very comfortable and cozy.


See? No band at the bottom of the sweatshirt. It just folds in!

The price is a little steep for kids in my opinion, but it did feel high quality and the inside was a soft fleece. It's $69, if I get some rewards I may pick it up next month. This also comes in a very pale pink that's a little too subtle for me. Shaded teal is definitely the better color.


When I saw the Mantra Wrap on the website, I thought that looks really cute! I could pull something like that off, it's very Harry Potter! Ummm nope. It's waaaaaaAAAAAYYYY too big! I would need this in a XXS or XXXS! 




Really too much fabric everywhere. This is definitely for the taller folks! Easy pass if you're petite like me. The color on the other hand is very nice. I love this shade of green. 


I reviewed the Recover Hoodie before in the Smoked Almond Brown and loved it so much I wanted to see if I needed it in the black as well. 




I decided the smoked almond brown is definitely the color to purchase this hoodie in if you're only going to get one. The black does look very nice but it's not as luxe. The winner in this post is definitely the Athleta Girl Crazy Cozy Chill Hoodie Shaded Teal! Hopefully Athleta will do another friends and family sale soon! I have a few items in my cart I'm saving for their next sale.

That's it for me! Hope you all have a fabulous Monday!

  1. The Crazy Cozy Chill Hoodie is too cute and I love the color! Not a green person but I do love teals. I think this size is perfect cos I love the oversized look on you. The bottom looks a bit weird without the ribbed cuff but I kind of like that it’s different. Do consider ordering it when it’s on sale,

    1. Thanks! I will definitely keep an eye on this hoodie. It's very cute and will be a good layering piece. It's pretty warm, but roomy enough for something underneath.

  2. That Athleta girl hoodie design is strange at the pockets but still cute. The wrap looks like it could be a cloak haha! The recover hoodie is nice in black but I love the brown a lot more! I like your Athleta reviews bc I wouldn't otherwise know what products they have in season. I only browse their site every few months lol!

    1. Thanks! I always fear my Athleta posts aren't as popular as Lulu- since a lot of readers seem to be from Canada and Athleta isn't available there. Totally boggles my mind. Athleta definitely has moved up the ladder the past couple of years. I'm wearing the Recover Hoodie in the smoked almond brown right now... =D

  3. Lol- as I was scrolling through(before reading) I saw the pic of the mantra gown. I thought it looked like a graduation gown!! Glad you passed on that one. The teal hoodie looked good on you. I agree the recover hoodie in the smoked almond looked like a better color. Shows off all the nice details. I prefer zip up hoodies, but I’m thinking the recover hoodie with the zippered pockets , nice details and looks petite friendly might just sway me to purchase. Thanks for the great try on reviews!

    1. Hi Sherry! Hahaha yes a graduation gown is pretty accurate LOL. If you get the Recover Hoodie let me know what you think. It's probably the best Athleta piece I've bought in a long time!

  5. I agree with everyone that the oversized teal hoodie looks great on you and it's a very nice colour! It's too bad that we don't have Athleta in Canada, but I still enjoy reading your reviews on their items!
