Happy Friday! We survived another week. I have an interesting fit review for you today. I say interesting because I'm still not totally sure how I feel about one of the items. I may leave it up to your comments to decide if I keep it or not!
For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops. For Athleta this translates to PXS or XXS/XS depending on the cut and style.
Anguilla Button Up Chambray Blue Size PXS
This button up is lightweight and soft. The color is a pretty light blue chambray. This would be really great for summer tied up in the front in a cute little knot. BUT- there is a pretty big but here, haha - the back completely flummoxed me. I think it's because I have a very short torso and decent sized hips. But with the front tied up, the back does not lay right. This may be one of those tops that just feels comfortable and looks cute from the front. The back might just have to be tucked in. I'm not really sure. I am not a huge fan of tucking in shirts because it usually makes me look thicker in the waist and I don't have a small waist to begin with.
What is going on here? 😑
Unfortunately this one is going back to Athleta. I think it would work on someone who is definitely taller than I am. It gets great reviews but it just didn't work for me. Next up, we have the Utility Crop Button Up. I'm wearing a size XS. I am not sure if the XXS would have fit better because of where it falls on my hips. I think if it was any smaller it might bunch up around my hips.
Utility Crop Button Up White Size XS
This is one of those tops that I think people either really like or really dislike. The front is shorter than the back and it also curves down to the sides. It's also very different from anything I have in my closet. It's a very loose fit and I think it would be a size down for most people with a normal length torso. This is supposed to be a crop top, but not so much on me!
The fabric is see-through and a nude cami or tank top will have to be worn underneath if you want to wear it to the office. But who knows when that will be? My office is still saying mid to late July, but with the second wave that's coming I can see it being pushed back to fall. I think this would also work for my many Zoom meetings that I have these days.
The fabric is a bit wrinkly out of the packaging and it isn't super soft, it feels a little stiff. So what do you think of this top? I almost wonder if I should try the XXS just to see? It is very comfortable and airy. I almost feel like this could be an Olsen twin kind of top. My husband voted yes on this. He thinks it looks cute on me.
I would like to hear your thoughts on this top! Keep or return? I'll leave it up to you! That's it for me, hope you all have a great weekend! Stay safe out there.
