Fit review day today! Sorry I've been MIA with fit reviews in the last little while, it's been a bit hectic around here. I will do better!!
On Tuesday I mentioned that I went a bit crazy ordering the Bring It Backbend Sweater and a few other items. I ended up ordering my size and a size down in the Minty Pink sweater, and my size down in the black. I definitely feel this is a size down item because even in the 8 it is wide in the chest and still quite long. Both sizes I could pull the back down and keep the opening closed, or I could wear it higher on my hips and have it stay open. You are not sacrificing a relaxed slouchy fit by sizing down in this, and the TTS may even be a little too big on you if you have narrow hips and shoulders. The pink and black both sold out online but my store had these in today (Coquitlam Centre/BC) and so you still have a shot of picking one up in store if you are in Canada, or ordering by phone from a Canadian store.
I like this sweater but honestly I cannot say I am in love with it. My main hold back on loving it is I feel the front is really plain and the crewneck is high so it feels really plain in the front. Usually with oversized sweaters like this you get a really pretty and flattering neckline that shows off your shoulders or your neck to make it still interesting and feminine but this is just an oversized knit from neck to hip. The material is lovely and the color is lovely so I'm inclined to keep one but I don't feel this is a knock out like the Chai Time Sweaters are. I'll have to think about it.
As far as the color, I really love Minty Pink a lot. It's such a vibrant and interesting peach/pink. Unfortunately I think it may wash me out a bit and the color is pale enough that it's slightly sheer. The black was definitely more elegant on.
What do you guys think? Did you also order the Bring It Backbend Sweater and have a fit review to share with us?
