I bought this for my wife and she said that after wearing it once, it was already her favorite hoodie. Super comfy and she loved the fit and feel.
I really loved this hoody when I first put it on: the fabric was soooo soft, the color was perfect, the longer fit helped keep me warm. But after a little bit, the weight of the hood kept the neckline hugging my neck which was uncomfortable, it pilled all over the tank top I was wearing and the exterior texture was impacted by its first wash. I will still wear it, but likely only when I feel like actually wearing the hood and don't plan to take it off so that my first layer doesn't get all pilled.
This hoody is warm, has a good fit (117lbs, 5"2' - Small), and I really like the minty green. My only complaint....the weight of the hood pulls the hoody tight against your chest and throat. I have not tried wearing something underneath, but the friction of another layer might keep it in place. It is bothersome enough that I have not worn the hoody much because I do not like to keep pulling it forward.
I have worn the Hoodie almost every day since I bought it ! It is cute, soft and a good weight for winter in SoCal. I am 5'4", 115 lbs, small chested, and bought the Black Bean in size 4. I can wear a shirt under it, but actually prefer wearing it without one as the material blend is very cozy alone. The size 4 is fitted, but not tight,after being washed a few times, but if I wanted a layer under it, a size 6 would be better. It's a fun hip length and the sleeves are just long enough for my longish arms. The reason I took off one star is that it sheds a lot in the wash and dryer, even after 2-3 rounds, and the white furry hood has to be picked clean of dark fabric balls afterward. Also anything else in the load gets dark balls or white fur bits on it. It is subsiding after several washes and the Hoodie still looks great, but I though it was worth a mention.
