I got this Everlane poplin sleeveless shirt last week (forgot to include it in the “what I bought” section of my Week in Review, oops!), but haven’t worn it yet. Honestly, I’m trying to decide if it’s too big for me. I ordered a size medium, which is my “normal” Everlane (and everything else) size, but lately, it seems like I should be ordering smalls. Which is weird, and somehow I can’t bring myself to do, because I am not small.
The shirt is supposed to be swing-y, which obviously, it is, but not too much I don’t think. The only place I’m really concerned about it being too big is in the arm holes; they’re big, and at a certain angle, you can catch a glimpse of my bra. If I keep this, I’ll probably wear a “fancier” bra underneath, or one that doesn’t look so much like a bra, to avoid the feeling that I’m flashing my bra. Or something like that.
I don’t know. I’m torn on whether or not I should exchange this for a small or not. If I get a small, it will fit better around the shoulders, arms, and torso, and not be so big around my waist, which I think is a good thing. If I stick with the medium, I’ll have more “room” and it’ll be nice and breezy for summer. As I think more about it, I’m thinking I’ll go with the small. But then again, will it REALLY make that much of a difference?
Ultimately, I will reiterate my opinion that Everlane’s sizing runs slightly big; this top would fit someone who’s a size 10-12 with a chest very well. I guess I’m a 6-8 with a barely-there-chest, for reference. And lately, all the mediums I’ve purchased from Everlane have been running a bit big.
Who else has this top? What did you do about sizing?
