Fit Review: Waterbound Hoodie, Yeah Yoga Tank, Love Tee

My Tuesday upload order just arrived and thankfully at least half of it is going back as well as the Cyber Stripe High Times Pants which I've had second thoughts on. For some reason the Waterbound Hoodie material was stiffer than I expected. I had a UPF pullover from 2010 which was super stretchy and silky but this one seems to have less stretch. I'll have to try it on again on a day when I'm not feeling peevish and icky from being in the car all day on a pouring rainy day. I'm almost certainly returning the Brushed Animal White Black one and probably keeping the Mini Blushed Illusion which I love for the print. The Mini Blushed Illusion print is so pretty in person with a lot of minty greens and purples swirling around. If I can wear this as a too/from pullover to crossfit I'll definitely keep it. I also wish the zipper went down an extra few inches for ventilation. This is my usual size 10. 

**tried it on a second time and I love this one in Mini Blushed Illusion. The color is so pretty in person and it's quite comfortable on.

The Yeah Yoga Tank is Luxtreme this year instead of the luon light of last year. I definitely prefer the luxtreme I think.  Most of the back and sides are circle mesh and with a nice open upper back, so very cool. The bra portion is really comfortable and not tight around the band. The color, Fatigue Green is beautiful! Why don't we have any Cool Racerbacks in this color???! I'm feeling kind of bloaty today so I'm not loving how unforgiving this tank is around the middle. I'm going to need to try it on with my roll down wunder unders and my In Flux Crops but I think I'm going to be too self conscious to wear this tank with anything other than waist smoothing pants so I'll probably return it. This is my regular size 10.

The Love Tee was my #1 winner of todays order. It is a TTS comfortable and relaxed fit and incredibly soft. I already have a white one from last year that I got on markdown so I'm bummed that the other color for this year is just plain white.

  1. How come you're returning the High Times? I ordered a pair and also having second thoughts (which is great for my wallet)

    1. I just don't wear tights casually very often at all and I feel like I have too many at 3 that I'm hardly ever wearing. I'm going to wait the full two weeks on those to return but the black/white waterbound and the yeah yoga tank I'm returning tomorrow.

    2. I just got the Cyber Stripe High Times and they are sooo comfortable, I'm not sure if I'll ever take them off. However, I'm not a big fan of how the stripes look on me. I wish it was a solid black!

  5. The waterbound hoodie looks lovely on you! I have to agree though, that they are not as soft/silky as last years version.

  6. Did the US get the blushed illusion water bound hoodie as well, or just Canada?

  7. Is the blushed illusion sheer hoodie? I thought it looked see-through in another pic but it doesn't on you. Can you use it to wear just out and about? Thanks!

    1. I didn't find it sheer but I didn't test it with a dark bra underneath. It's possible that with a dark contrasting bra you may be able to see it.
      I think you could wear it as just a light layer the way you would a swiftly LS, only more relaxed and not so delicate.
