Bien Fait Sweatshirt

Bien Fait Sweatshirt is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just your average sweatshirt! Just received my Bien Sweatshirt, and I couldn't be happier! It has the coziness and weight of an average sweatshirt, but with a twist. You can pair this with a linen pant or a skirt, and feel polished. Got it on sale, which was a bonus, but I would have paid full price. Grab it while you can!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chic and comfy This sweat shirt is not too big and baggie. It has a fit that is perfect for a lot of outfit options. I grabbed mine on sale because the price is a little on the high side. It is extremely soft and very comfortable without looking sloppy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I am always cold, so I thought this would be a stylish alternative to a cardigan. I was right! The fit is perfect, I did size up to a S, and I don't in any way feel as though I have a big boxy sweatshirt on. It is very soft, looks great with sleeves up or down. I threw this on with a pair of shorts, and too much jewelry, and I can't tell you how many compliments I got! I wish I could wear this more often, I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far Out My Favorite Sweatshirt I officially joined the bandwagon. I am not one to wear graphic or shirts with words on them, but this sweatshirt has converted me to give it a chance. I know several people who own it and decided to buy it when it went on sale (always a plus). It's incredibly soft and comfortable. Great staple for my wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
