I wasn't sure if I would like the banded bottom on this sweatshirt, but it's not at all tight and actually allows the top to drape in a flattering way. Even more flattering is the wide neckline; as someone who's top-heavy, I stay away from high-neck and crewneck styles, which just make me look bustier. The fabric is soft, cozy, and comfortable, and has held up nicely in the wash so far (I wash it on cold and hang to dry). I don't find that it "dresses up" all that much, but I bought it primarily for long plane rides or to toss in my bag for trips to the beach and such, so I have no complaints about that.
The Dressy Sweatshirt
Love the shape of the sleeves, they are kind bat-winged and and very flattering. Material is thicker than other encircled tops, but still very soft and luxurious. Neck line is a bit wide so some bra peekage....
Very soft and comfortable. Love it
The dressy sweatshirt is so soft and comfortable. A perfect piece to relax in!
