Do I like it? Yes! Do I love it? No. It was worth what I paid you it and it’s very cute. I went by the sizing chart and probably could have sized down two sizes and been fine but since I have extra long arms I went with what was recommended. It’s massive. Do I care? Not really. It is a bit tight around my forearms when I push it up due to the wider elastic. And I prefer pushed up sleeves. I’m also pretty short waisted and even cropped with the drawstrings it’s still normal sized.
My one and only major problem is the color selections. I ended up choosing the light heather color with the intent to dye it. I chose a lime green and it dyed well, but ended up a muted lime green. So if you’re like me and just not a fan of the colors get it anyway and make it your own. You paid for it, don’t t feel guilty about wanting it in a certain color.
I struggled initially if I was going to purchase the jacket because of price but I literally could not stop thinking about it so I took the plunge. Overall, I'm super happy with it! It's super comfortable; I feel like I could literally sleep in it and the pocket in the front is HUGE. A couple of things to note: the color is a bit darker than in the picture above and I sized down one size from regular like other people suggested (I have just under a 40" bust size and was fine in a medium). A couple of areas that I wish were tweaked/might have made the jacket 5 stars for me is the sleeves can be difficult to push up, which can make it difficult to wash my hands/dishes while wearing the jacket. Additionally, sometimes the jacket moves backwards (especially when my hair is down) and the zipper can be against my neck. However, this isn't a problem when I'm using the pocket. Overall, I'm really happy with it and would purchase it again if I had to do it all over!
I did have some shipping issues with this order but popflex has great customer service so it was handled fairly quickly. Regarding the hoodie itself, the color is a lot more muted then I expected. Everyone stated it was more brick pink colored but in my opinion it just looks kinda washed out. It is very much on the more darker and duller side but it doesn't take away from the overall cuteness though I am a bit sad that it isn't as vibrant as I expected. If i were to compare the feeling of this hoodie to, think of a medium weight hoodie, like a college hoodie but a bit thicker. Its 85.9% cotton - 14.1% spandex, the mix of fabric feels a bit cheap to me. Coming out of the bag, it is very wrinkled, but I'm sure a bit of steaming/ironing will fix that. The inside of the hoodie isn't as soft as my boyfriend's lightweight gildan hoodie. So for $75, I was expecting a more luxe feeling to justify the price point but since the design itself is very unique, I would say $75 is fair regardless of a more ideal fabric choice. I haven't put it in the wash yet, so I'm not aware if the fabric pills up but if it does, I will update my review and let you guys know. So, regarding the fit, I'm normally a size in between medium/large. I read the recommendations of sizing down, and I personally would agree! It's a better fit overall in my opinion. Of course that depends on your fit preference. I prefer a more fitted look, but if you're more into the oversized baggy fit, stick with the medium. Your waist won't get lost with the gold accented pulleys on the side of the hoodie where the thick waistband is, the gold adds a lovely touch as well as the pleated detail on the back of the hoodie. Lots of space in the pocket! The end caps on the hoodie pulls are also a cute little detail and so are the zippers that rep the popflex emblem. I also really like the sleeve length and the embroidery on one of the sleeve is very well done. There's no loose threads anywhere so the quality is also ace. Overall, the color isn't as expected and the fabric feels a bit cheap in my opinion, but it's a very cute, unique hoodie that has a bunch of adorable little details that make this hoodie a must have in your closet!
Okay I have been in love with this since it was released but held back due to the price. I eventually couldn’t resist anymore and had to go for it and omg so glad i did! It’s so soft and cozy and I could live in it for the rest of my life! I did size down due to other reviews and got a small rather than my go to medium and it’s perfect!
