KARA SLEEVELESS SWEATSHIRT
When Kara Goucher asks you for a sleeveless hoodie, you make a sleeveless hoodie. She described it as that easy piece you throw on before/after a workout, for warmth at the core while still being wings out. With an easy fit, premium rib detailing, and a 100% technical fleece that is equally soft on both sides, this may be the queen of all sleeveless sweatshirts.
- Polartec Thermal Pro™ Fleece (polyester/lyocell/spandex)
- super soft and warm lightweight technical fleece
- heathered jersey outer face
- Oiselle logo on chest
- front hand pocket
- technical rib at waist and underarm
- 24" body length (size small)
This is one of my favorite purchases in a long time—I wish it came in lots of colors so i could enjoy it more often! I’m 5’7” about 155 lbs, with a longer torso and broader shoulders and the large fits me perfectly. I love it as a casual wear or even running in and it’s stays in place and doesn’t slide up. I always get compliments when I wear this.
I pretty much live in this. I own it in both colors. I mostly where it around the house, but I have run in it and it is comfortable. I’ve also worn it under another hoodie and slept in it multiple times. It’s also great for throwing on after your workout, but before your shower. Super soft and comfortable. And it has a pocket.
Why would I wear a sleeveless sweatshirt? I live in AZ where it doesn't get too cold! The material isn't super thick, so I can wear this like a sleeveless shirt. I wear a S (older) flyte tank and the S fit with the perfect slouch with my Kara pants!
I've debated this top for the last year thinking "when am I ever going to wear a sweatshirt without sleeves?" I gotta tell you that the answer is "all the time." It adds coziness without being overly warm. It's perfect for a cool morning (especially with the Kara sweats) or at home when the boyfriend sets the a/c too high. It's also great post run or race when my arms are too sticky for sleeves but I'm starting to get a chill from being sweaty. Also, it looks amazing on (I swear - saw a ton of them in person on all body types at camp). I'm 5'7" and 145-150lbs and the medium fit with the perfect amount of slouch.
I literally just got home from work and this lovely shirt was waiting for me. After reading other reviews, was hoping I would have the same experience. I tried it on with the tags and have not taken it off yet. I LOVE it!! The material is so soft and the cut around the arms is flattering. If I didn't have issues with white tops, I would be ordering that one as well. I am 5'4" 132 and 36C and the medium is perfect. Highly recommend this top!
According to the size chart, I ordered a SM. I'm a 34C and usually wear small or medium tops. I wish I would have gone with the ML for this though. The SM isn't flattering and is tighter across the body than I would have liked. It's just weird because I feel like in the other items I've bought from Oiselle run large, pants I usually have to go down a size compared to other brands.
I am in love. I love the lines and color of this top, and the material is softer than I expected, has a really nice feminine fit (but is not tight), and is just damn cool. I was concerned about the arm holes and having to wear a tank under it, but I am able to wear it with just a sports bra without it showing. Look out post-work out soccer mom Saturdays, me and this hoodie are coming for ya! We want more Kara!
