Current Measurements at time of review: Height - 6'1 (I have a long torso and legs) / Bust - 37inch / Waist - 31inch / Hips - 41inch = I always find clothing shopping difficult as size charts don't account for how items will fit tall people |
I wanted to branch out and try something new, and so I purchased this top. At the time of this purchase I got a couple of the rib knit in size large (I sized-up) and thought to do the same in the net tee (as the large is meant to be longer which I thought would be a good idea due to my height). As I've noted in other reviews, I have found inconsistencies in the sewing between the different colours of the rib knit, but the navy net tee in large was just too oversized. The under-arm area was just so loose and created a lot of sag, with a lot of the material gathering at the sides. The hip area also flared out so much that either side curved up into points. It did fit well around my bust though, but it was very strange considering the other areas looked so wrong. Admittedly, I did not like the feeling of the net material as well, and found it scratchy. The length in the torso was good but the arm length did not reach my wrists (which is frustrating due to the fact that I sized up).
If you are tall and have an athletic-build I would not recommend sizing up if you're looking for added comfort and length in this design - I just don't believe it will work in this style. The main thing that drew me to this top was the colour, which I like, but unfortunately I will not be wearing this due to all the issues I have addressed.
