I love this tee but it is not for everyone
on June 27, 2012
I bought an XXL to accomodate a larger chest (DD). It fits really nicely across the chest. For that size, however, I would have expected the tee-shirt to be wider, with bigger arms. This is not the case. For my body shape, it fits perfectly (I have since bought more in different colours), but for women who are on the more ample side, I would imagine that the arms and the hips would be way too tight in the XXL. It fits loosely around the neck so it doesn't make me feel constricted. The material is wonderful, keeps me cool. I really see the benefits of having tee-shirts that are built for exercise, rather than just using old tee-shirts from around the house. The pink is quite see-through but with a black exercise bra one can retain one's modesty! I imagine the white is even more transparent. So bear that in mind when choosing colours!
I love the shirt and will give it top marks, but I AM disappointed that so much of the exercise wear around seems to be geared to smaller women, including this tee-shirt. Doesn't that kind of defeat the point? Women who are trying to lose some weight and get healthier should be encouraged and some nice exercise clothes that fit well would go a long way in doing that. Not many sportswear brands seem to be taking up that challenge. This tee-shirt is now my favourite exercise shirt - but it is a shame that bigger sizes are not available for larger women to feel its incredible comfort. I am by no means large (apart from in the chest) and the XXL gives me a slim fit - surely there must be something wrong with that. I also think that for the XXL (and larger) sizes, a wider range of available colours would have been nice. I am so tired of seeing the full range of colours in the stick-thin sizes, and only basic options in the larger ones.
