Major Fit Review Friday! Wunder Under Pant Ombre, WU Crop Midnight Tulle, Wunder Under Pant Tech Mesh, Scuba Hoodie Terry, First Mile Jacket,
I'm posting this a day early than usual because of the upcoming holiday! I can't believe there's only 3 days left. Before I jump into the fit reviews, I just wanted to point out the Wunder Under Pants in herringbone that popped up online. I think this is the first time I'm seeing them this year. I just wish they weren't hi-rise.
For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and usually wear a size 4 in tops and bottoms.
*Warning there's about 30 photos in this post!
When I saw the Wunder Under Pant Hi-Rise in Ombre I knew I wanted to try them. Given how vertically challenged I am, I expected them to be super long and maybe the ombre effect wouldn't even be apparent enough on my short legs, but as you can see there's definitely discernible ombre effect even on my 26 inch inseam.
I'm wearing my usual size 4. First thing I noticed right away is how high the waist is. I expected it to be high, but these are super high waisted. They feel like they're right underneath my rib cage. I for one am not a fan of hi-rise in general, but occasionally I don't mind it depending on the style. I really like High Times Pant and Align Pants even though they're hi-rise. But these are super hi-rise. It was actually making me a bit hot when I was taking the photos. They're at least one inch above my belly button. The back coverage is insane. It felt like it almost came up to my bra! If you're the type that loves hi-rise this is for you.
Taking the price into consideration at $128 a pop, I say unless these fit you perfectly, I wouldn't pay the price. For me personally, the super hi-rise was the deal breaker. I would have kept them if they were regular rise WU pants and I would have gotten them hemmed. I think they look super cute with boots.
Here I'm wearing the new Scuba Hoodie IV in Heathered Alberta Lake Size 2
I know, what am I doing purchasing another hoodie?! What is wrong with me?! BUT, I will tell you that this color is probably my second favorite color right after heathered bark berry. There, I said it. Earlier this year Canada got this color in Scuba Hoodie III and I really wanted it! Sadly, it never made it to the US.
Anyone remember this?
So, when I saw this come up, I had to bite my tongue and order it. I really wasn't impressed with the nocturnal teal Scuba I tried on last month, but I would give this a shot since it's also made of super soft Terry. And it really is suuuuuuuuper soft.
I'm wearing my usual size 2, and the fit is the same as the nocturnal teal non terry version. Loose and comfortable. I'm leaning towards keeping this one because of the color and how soft it is. Again, I wish this one came with a special gold zipper. I think what really made the heathered bark berry that much more coveted is the rose gold zipper.
When Lululemon came out with the Tech Mesh High Times back in 2014, I missed out on them. Honestly I was just getting into Lululemon at the end of 2014, so I'm fairly a newbie. Since everyone seemed to love the HT version I decided to give the Wunder Under version a try.
I'm wearing my usual size 4. The rise on this pair hits right at my belly button, which I prefer. These seem to be baggy around my knees and calves which make them look extra sloppy with all the mesh. I've read comments that it's a mummy look and I can kind of see their point. These are also very long on my short legs so again I have them folded underneath. But I do not think these can be hemmed at all because the mesh goes all the way down to the hem.
The fabric is full on luon and felt soft and substantial. These passed the bend over test for me. But because of the price at $118, the sloppiness at the knees and calves, they're a no for me. These would work much better if you're average height or taller with thicker knees and calves than mine.
These also hit my belly button. The fabric is super smooth full on luxtreme and feel slightly compressive. These were not 100% opaque on me. You could see a hint of my underwear during the bend test, but only if you looked very closely. The print itself is very lovely. It really does remind me of unicorn tears. I wouldn't mind owning something in this print.
The ankles flare out on me, which is always annoying. If I kept these I would get them hemmed. But I think I'm going to hold out and get this print in the Speed Shorts. The blue really is amazing.
I'm wearing my usual size 4. I could have fit into the size 2, if not for how tight the back was. So I would suggest sticking to your regular size. The color on this is so gorgeous. I've been looking at this color since it came out in October. I was really debating on getting the darkest magenta in the Define Jacket that's currently on WMTM for $89, but I have about 5 Define Jackets already so decided to go with the jacket instead. But if you're looking for something in this color that's more affordable the Define Jacket is the way to go.
The sleeves are long on me and there are no thumbholes, but it does have cuffins. It's expensive for what it is. At $228 there is no down but is a Glyde Soft-shell which is water and wind resistant. I would say it's a medium weight jacket for fall weather. I definitely wouldn't wear this out in the freezing cold temperatures unless I've got another layer underneath.
I really enjoy the look of this jacket and how it fits on my petite frame so I'm definitely keeping this one. That's all for me today, and I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday!
