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)
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!
