The design of this hoodie is great—a cute idea, reasonably well executed for the price. Don’t kid yourself, this is Chinese non-sustainable fast fashion at its best. Fabric is 100% synthetic (polyester, spandex and rayon), stretchy and soft, but due to the rayon, it will require extra care—don’t even think about putting it in the dryer. Sizing is as you would expect—I would buy your regular size. For reference I am 5’ 2” and weigh 115. I normally take an XS or S depending on cut and went with a S. It’s perfect; roomy enough to be comfortable or layer underneath. I am super petite so the sleeves were a good four inches too long. I shortened them by creating a cuff (see photos)—this is NOT the way the manufacturer made the sleeves. I did it this way to preserve the thumb holes (I actually think thumb holes are silly, but like the contrasting fabric and didn’t want to cut it off). Quality control in construction is passable since one of the pockets was very wonky inside. Either no one inspected this garment or their standards are very low. Normally I would deduct for this, but I like the item enough to fix it myself and move on. It really is super cute—especially for the price.
