I love this sweatshirt so much I bought two. It's on the thinner side, but that makes it all the more comfortable to wear in California weather. The material isn’t thick but it’s soft and not see through. It holds body heat in so it's purposeful as a sweatshirt should be without being suffocating. It's a beautiful light layer piece, perfect for windy or chilly days. I get complimented everytime I wear it. I typically take a medium in tops and bought the medium size and it fits perfect. It covers the navel and hits at the high hip. It doesn’t cover the rear end. I like that I can still move in this and not feel constricted. I would recommend to a friend, sister and niece.
