5.0 out of 5 stars buy normal size AND one size bigger, Update given., November 18, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Russell Athletic Men's Dri Power Fleece Crewneck Sweatshirt (Apparel)
to sum it up...i wear large, i NEVER wear a medium, saw reviews about size so i ordered a large and a medium. the medium fits better and i swim in the large. i'm a guy, 5'10", 175lbs. sportin' a little belly. the only problem i have with my medium is that i find the sleaves to creep up on me at times, like they're a little too short. but wait!... i have VERY broad shoulders and have always had a problem with sleaves creeping up...so i would say disregard this part of the review unless you have really broad shoulders. in summary, i wear a large, NEVER EVER a medium, i bought both and decided the medium fit me better. i already have a previous sweatshirt that i swim in, and am tired of that look, so medium for me!
good quality.

UPDATE: After one full year of wearing this Medium sweatshirt, I am buying another Medium, only because I need another color for variety.
This sweatshirt fits me perfect. I wear this sweatshirt ALOT and after a year, it's showing no signs of wear, although it probably has thinned out a little, not as thick and fluffy as when it was new. I would say my earlier comment about the sleaves can be disregarded. I made this comment after swimming in XL sweatshirts for years (I apparently thought that was a normal fit). I would say this Medium fits my normally Large upper perfectly.

I'm 5'10", 173 lbs., male, broad shoulders with a small belly there. I normally only wear size Large tops, but with this sweatshirt a Medium fits me perfect. I did buy both to compare, one Large and one Medium. I SWAM in the Large. So, to my disbelief, I am wearing a Medium sweatshirt that fits me perfect. This sweatshirt is the ONLY Medium I own. Oh, did I say?, I SWAM in the Large.

How is the length? Does it run below the waist even after washing? I like longer lengths in sweatshirts.
Thanks

Length is great for me. I live in these this time of year. I have worn these exclusively for about the last 4 winters. I am wearing one right now that has been washed plenty. I just stood up to check the length so I could offer an accurate description to you. I would say the elastic waistband of the sweatshirt centers around the bottom edge of my belt. This is with a nice comfortable little slack allowed, NOT pulled tight down. I am man, 5'9", 175lbs.
