Rated 5 out of 5 by New favourite I adore this sweatshirt. Adore! I find it hard to take it off... cute with a mini, jeans, leggings when lounging round the house. I ordered a small and it fits true to size. March 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A perfect classic This sweatshirt is so simple, but also sophisticated. I love explaining to people that it says "Madewell" when they compliment me on it. The terry material isn't my favorite, as it isn't super soft, but the sweatshirt is still extremely comfortable. It goes with any other clothing items you might have, and the classic black and white colors add to the simplicity. If Madewell ever makes it in other colors, count me in! February 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this sweatshirt I have been eyeing this product the past few seasons and finally took the plunge. Well, I couldn't be happier. The sweatshirt goes with everything and can stand alone or layered up. It is a bit of a monetary commitment, but you'll never find these babies on sale (believe me, I've tried). The sweatshirt is quickly becoming a staple for my closet and I highly recommend it. February 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING but size up! I would agree with the rest of the ladies reviewing this sweatshirt. SIZE UP. I'm 5'2 and on the slimmer side. I tried the XS in store and it was too small. I ordered the size S and it fits perfectly! It fits as a sweatshirt should, loose without being too baggy or overbearing. It's very chic, even if it is a sweatshirt. January 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I read reviews before purchasing this sweatshirt, and as a result, decided to purchase a size small and I am glad I did. I always buy XS in tops but the reviews made it sound like this sweatshirt may be a bit too snug in an XS and I wanted it to be a bit roomy for layering, etc. I am really pleased with how the size small fits. It's a casual top but you can dress it up. I haven't washed it yet, but when I do, I will air dry it. January 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun sweatshirt! I bought this for my daughter and she loves it! It fits beautifully and has worn and washed well. A bit pricy but she'll wear it a lot and likes that it's unique. January 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unique and oh so stylish Love, love, love this sweatshirt. You can dress it up or down and at least one person will ask you where you got it. It definitely runs small. I'm normally a Small, but I ordered a Medium. I've worn it with a blouse underneath and found that I probably could have gotten away with a Large if I wanted a looser fit. I'm pulling it out of the dryer before it's completely dry to prevent further shrinkage! January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by chic I love this sweatshirt. Overall, it's exactly what I was looking for: casual but easy to dress up a little, clean design, comfy. I wish it were a little softer and a little heavier. I'm also a little nervous the type is going to start cracking – it gets wavy when you put it in the dryer, so this might become a line-dry item. Otherwise, I love it. January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost perfect.. I love the style, and yes it is basic black sweatshirt, but the fit is amazing, almost perfect! For reference, I wear a sz 2 or xs J crew dress or camis and perfect shirt most times, sometimes a sz 4 or a small in sweater, and the sz small on this sweatshirt fits almost perfectly, it has the right bagginess and crop updated look of a cool and chic sweatshirt. My only beef is... the bottom part of the sleeves is very tight and the material is not very stretchy, so pulling up the sleeves is almost impossible. I plan to wear it on days when I run around for errands and not being able to pull up the sleeves is quite annoying. Apart from that, I am very happy with my purchase. the quality if the fabric is also nice, not cheap and thin. January 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Show your Madewell love This sweatshirt is so comfortable and you really can throw it over anything. My favourite way to wear it is over a button up in silk or chambray. Other reviewers said they found it ran small, but I ordered my usual size small and it fit great. January 1, 2014
