I'm not generally a wearer of sweatshirts, but if I do I want one that's not quite run-of-the-mill and sustainably, ethically and Canadian made. This not only ticks those boxes, it is locally made (which is also important to me), but good quality, warm and a decent price.
I'm 5'1" and pretty curvy, with a high waist. Any shirt, sweater, or coat that stops at the waist or hip bones does me zero favours. I'm currently a size 12, 34DDD, hourglass figure. I purchased the Small and was worried it might be too short. However, I don't know that I could have found a better fit. I can have the bottom pulled down to the crease of my hips and still have a little bit of bagging, for lack of a better word, through the mid-section. This area is just loose enough to hide my pandemic induced muffintop while still showing that I have a waist. It's snug across the chest, but not to the point of straining or causing material work it's way up above my bust. AND the graphic sits where it should. The other petite ladies will get this - adult t-shirts and sweat shirts with graphics often start midway down, or at the bottom, of our bust. It looks ridiculous, if you have a larger chest. (The graphic will fold over or point down.) I chose this shirt because, of the Pretty Project items, this one looked like it wouldn't have this problem. I'm happy to be right.
I took a star off because although I washed in warm, not hot water, and hung it to dry, it shrank a bit. For the other petite ladies, as this sweatshirt isn't designed for petites the arms are a little long.
So happy you like this Pretty Project Sweatshirt! And happy to hear that it is a pretty good fit for someone petite. We love how soft and cozy it is too! And yes we recommend all our pieces are to be washed in cold water and hung to dry as warm water can shrink pieces a bit. We are so happy to hear that you are loving it though :)
I love the bamboo and the fit! I have this heart design in XL and the original design in a XS and I love both! So soft the XL is great for cozy days and the XS is perfect for running around! Each size fits me different but I love both!
Bought these sweatshirts for myself and my daughters for Valentine’s Day. Love the message as each and every phrase describes them perfectly
I wear this sweatshirt so much!
It is cozy, comfortable and empowering. My all time fave!
