Fit Review! Athleta Ritual Jacket, Tugga Sherpa Jacket, Ultra Hi-Rise Shimmer Tight in Powervita

Happy Friday everyone! I've got an Athleta haul to review for this week's Fit Review Friday. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. This is equivalent to a size XXS or PXS in Athleta.

Right off the bat, this jacket feels super soft. Kind of like how my cats feel. 😂 I love this color pink. It's the perfect romantic pink that makes me feel pretty. It sort of makes me look like a marshmallow puff though. The jacket is thickly padded on the inside. It is unbelievable cozy and will definitely keep you warm.

The length hits above the bum. If you're looking for more coverage, this won't be it. The sleeves are long, but not overly so that it bothers me. The oversized hood adds to the cute factor. 

If you're looking for a super soft plushy jacket, this is it. The O ring zipper is sturdy but something about it makes it look a little cheap to me. I wish the zipper pull was something other than the O ring. I didn't find the jacket to be flattering on my frame. I think it would work better for someone taller than my 4 feet 11 inches. 

Next up we have the Tugga Sherpa Jacket. It looked really cute on the model, but on me not so much. It looks very boxy and shapeless. Usually black works well on me, but not in this jacket. This is a size PXS, but the proportions are just off. 

The sherpa feels very soft to touch. The jacket looks better from the side, but from the front it just doesn't work. I think it's a little too cropped and a little too wide. It is possible that the regular size XXS might be more flattering.

The high neck collar when zipped up with definitely keep you warm. The sleeves have a long wrist cuff. I'm not 100% sold on that. It looks a little weird to me. This jacket gets amazing reviews though. It's just not for me. 

Last, I have the Elation Ultra Hi-Rise Shimmer Tight in antique burgundy. I was pretty excited to try these since they came in petite and the 24 inch length is perfect. The ankles fit as they should! How exciting is that? 

The powervita fabric didn't feel as soft because of the shimmer effect. It actually feels a little bit scratchy if I'm being honest. However, they really do look sleek and makes me feel like a million bucks. The waistband is high, but hits my belly button. They fit snug, but not overly tight. The comfort is still there. I think if the fabric didn't feel scratchy I would have kept these. But after my recent Werkshop purchase, these did not feel quite as nice.

Even though none of the items worked out for me this time, I still think Athleta is worth checking out. These new items have piqued my interest, especially the Inclination Moto Leggings. They remind me of the alo yoga ones I tried on but returned because the length was insanely long.

(I want to try this... but I don't need another hoodie!) 

In other news, I noticed a lot of new items on WMTM. Here are my picks.

($69! Amazing price)

That's it for me! Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Wow the povervita shimmery black leggings look amazing!!! The pink sherpa jacket looks super cute on you. I've been on the hunt for some sherpa items.

    1. Same here... Still looking for the perfect one. I also really want some kind of faux fur jacket. There's one I've been eyeing but it's pretty expensive. So I haven't pulled the trigger yet. Maybe there will be a black friday sale!

  2. I love all of these of you! Those owl leggings look soo good with the jacket! I might have to get one now!

    1. Yes I love the owl leggings, you won't be disappointed if you get them!

  3. The Ritual Jacket is cute but it looks a bit too boxy on you. I would love the hem to be more hugging. The color is pretty though.

    The Tugga Sherpa Jacket looks better from the side than the front as you’ve said. Love the high collar but the proportion is off.

    The Elation Ultra Hi-Rise Shimmer Tight in antique burgundy is a keeper! Fits you perfectly and love everything about it! Definitely a keeper!

    1. Thanks Andrea! The tights are definitely the best fitting I've come across in a while. I want to try them in the Inclination Moto Legging too. The colors are so pretty.
