FLYTE SHORT SLEEVE
Our Flyte tops are iconic. For their jacquard-knit birds, for the popular fit, and for a fabric that doesn't quit. We kept all those favorite elements intact, but simply made the Flyte Short Sleeve we had all been dreaming of. Throw it on and keep flying!
- flyte fabric (polyester / nylon)
- wicking + odor resistant
- all-over bird knit
- seamless design
I like the material and the cut of this shirt except, like other reviewers say, it's tight under the armpits. I can wear it for an hour or two workout, but after a couple of hours of sweatiness, it gets irritating. I do have broad shoulders and a big bust so there's that.
The fabric is beautiful but the cut is way off (at least for me). I am usually an XS in most brands but this was too tight so I sized up. The Small still didn't fit right. The neck bunched up and it was very tight across the bust and under my arms. It's also way too long. I realize this is a very popular shirt so I'm not sure if something has changed but it's going back.
The color (lapis) and bird pattern are great, and as a bonus the heathered background really disguises sweat! I was a little nervous about the armpit seams after reading some of the reviews, but they didn't bother me on a four-mile test run. However I have pretty scrawny arms and a smaller bust - buffer or bustier ladies might have more of an issue with the seams. I'm 5'8", 125 lbs, 34A and a small fit exactly how I prefer my workout tops - snug but not skin tight.
I was so excited when Oiselle put their Flyte tops on sale. I own the tanks, long sleeve and short sleeve versions. The colors are vibrant. I especially love the heathered versions. The print is great and you can wear the shirt to the gym, for a run or as cute casual wear. The long sleeve have thumbholes.
I size up in these tops because they are are meant to be more form fitting, but I like them a little loose. I'm typically a Size Sm (5'6", 130 lbs, 36C-28-36). The fabric washes well, drip dry, and breathes well. Seamless, no irritating tags, and cozy.
Love, love, love this top and the sales price gave me the opportunity to add several more to my collection.
I had to size up just to get more of a flowy feel (I am 5'1" and 120lbs, generally an xs but sometimes a sbetween a xs and s). Otherwise I feel like the sizing is pretty consistent with the flyte tops. I have no issues with the length. The white is a beautiful crisp color. I love the concept of flyte in a t-shirt and will likely buy more soon!
The material is great; love how stretchy it is. I sized up and even then the shoulders/arm pits were tight, and the torso is very fitted. I liked the long length, but I didn't like that even one size larger it felt weird in the torso. I was excited to try this Oiselle classic but was surprised it didn't deliver (for me).
I am 5'2" 115lbs and bought a size XS. It is a beautiful top and the material is excellent for fall and spring runs. I am short-waisted and for me it's too long and bunches at the waist. I'm sure taller people find the length beneficial. I kept it because other than the bunching it's great!
I love the length on this shirt, and how it fits through my torso. The material is great, and no one can tell I'm sweating when I am wearing it! However, I should have sized up because it is unexpectedly tight in the armpits (and the same size in the tank fits a bit loose on me). Totally fine for wearing around (makes my armpits look skinny!), shorter runs, gym workouts, but I haven't taken this on a long or hard run because of this issue.
