as the ONLY double-zip hoodie ANYWHERE, it's... good enough.
i am a 24 year old, chubby, very busty, very hippy, very small-waisted girl in nyc. i wear only clothes that show my hourglass shape, and it is very hard to do. i like to look more casual some of the time, and started searching for a hoodie with not one but two zippers about five months ago. i found it last week on this website - the only one there is. there are no other double zip hoodies anywhere. 96$ is a little steep for me but it was definitely worth it, because i want to have a hoodie that allows for my bust and hips but makes my waist undeniable.
i bought a large, because with a 31" waist (the only part that needs to actually fit) i fit in the 'large' range. but since its arrival yesterday, i've taken to it with needle and thread and made the bodice of it about 5 inches tighter by sewing a tuck all the way up from the hem to the arms, straight up the back, as well as smaller tucks subtracting about 2 inches from the bottoms of each sleeve. it now fits the way i wanted it to, but the takeaway from this is that maybe it runs a bit big. i realize i could have sent it back for a medium but i was concerned that the medium might be shorter, and i do happen to be quite handy with crafts. after losing 50 lbs recently, i've developed decent skill at making clothes a bit smaller, so i had no problem with this.
unfortunately, i've noticed the whole zipper situation is really not the best quality. it sometimes doesn't zip, like, solidly, and i go back and make sure it closes consistently. this is one of the many problems in general with metal zippers, so i usually only buy things with plastic zippers. but this was literally (and i don't use that word to mean 'figuratively') the ONLY double-zip hoodie ANYWHERE, so this slightly shoddy metal zipper will have to do.
write to your congressman. there need to be more double-zip hoodies.
