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!
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.
