This sweater is great! It is the softest material and feels so comfy and roomy. Great for wearing over a tank or tshirt, or just over your bra. I just wore it biking on a chilly morning and it kept me warm but didn't make me hot and stuffy. At first I thought the short sleeves were a bit odd but they're a great idea for a light weight sweater. I have it in the green colour and its gorgeous!

Just received in mail, got Cadet Blue. First impression: super comfy and could live in it this fall. But it has a very strong chemical smell that makes me hesitant to keep it.
Fits TTS - took usual size 6 (also did so for Gratitude Wrap and Bliss Wrap - not certain of exact names, please forgive). Due to broad shoulders, could not have sized down, and not certain anyone should, unless they are very petite (am 5'5", approx 135lbs, 36B).
It is 92% Model, 8% Spandex and has a weighty drape. It is not the looped weave that I associate with French terry but rather a flat, heavy-weight woven. The generous hood is lined in a thin 95% cotton/5% spandex lining (much like the Bliss Wrap) and the neckline has a high, but loose, almost mock turtleneck so that when the hood is up, one's face is nicely framed and when down, it has a sumptuous look. Style seems a bit retro (especially the light grey). Wouldn't bother with tying drawcord, just seems decorative. The downside is the price point (and that chemical smell that hopefully will wash out?!? anyone else experiencing this?).
Think anyone who lives in the south (or southwest) with mild winters would find this piece a nice addition to their wardrobe, especially for layering a slim fitting long sleeved t-shirt underneath (or for up north, good for transitional weather).

This sweatshirt is a must have as it is perfect for in between weather with the short sleeves. It makes for a super cozy run around sweatshirt, perfect by the fire, or even cute with the right pair of jeans! I bought this sweatshirt while I was out in Lake Tahoe and unfortunately within 2 weeks of having it and only 2 washes the entire stitching around the ribbon ties has come un raveled (one side). It's more frustrating than anything due to not having a lulu back home near by and the closest being 3 hours away.
Despite the stitching issues, I would certainly recommend this product.

perfect as a therapist
Love this hoody, it's perfect for work! Would buy several if I could (sale please). Please don't discontinue this style, it's a must have!

Love the fabric. I agree that it's a little bit pricey for a hoody but, it's flattering on. It's generous in size but, I bought my usual size and I like the looser fit. I'm also glad that the arms aren't tight.

Bought the green colour, I did size down (normally a 6 went with a 4) I know it is meant to fit big but too big and it looked bulky so the 4 was perfect. It is super soft and light. Love the kangaroo pocket. The Drawstring can be pulled tight, just with such a thick string it may look awkward. I hope it goes on sale because I would love the blue but it is a bit pricey for a short sleeve hoodie.

Decided to try it on at the store. Did not expect to buy it. Not only did I buy it but bought two. Did not size down. Meant to be loose. Also found it to be soft.

Do NOT down-size
I bought this in my regular size and it fits perfectly. Unlike some of the previous reviews, I disagree about the sizing and would not down-size. Yes, it's not fitted--it's not meant to be fitted. But I'm not swimming in it either. I'm 5'9" and it fits at mid-hip length. The shoulders, chest, and mid-section areas of the hoodie fit just right--not too big or too small. It's soft and lightweight and will work well for cool summer days, evenings, or air-conditioned spaces. I love it!

forest green please
I love this. I got a size 4. It's loose, but that's how I like it. So comfy. I can wear it without a bra and it looks okay. I could do without the ridiculous tie though. Please make it in forest green.

This shirt does fit big so definitely size down- I could've bought it 2 sizes down even but I decided on the size below. It's so soft and the hood and neckline sits well, it's super cute. There's an inside pocket for my phone too! The bottom string serves no purpose and is too big to tie but luckily it looks good open. The color palettes were great and I was torn on which to get. Can't wait to wear this!
