Better-Than-Basic Sweatshirt is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 487.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color not as shown in catalog I ordered one fair orchid and one French vanilla. The fair orchid was not as bright as pictured but was acceptable. The French vanilla was lemon yellow, which was not acceptable. Rather than pay another $9.99 to return it, I tried to remove the color with a purchased color remover. Those apparently don't work on cotton/polyester blends. The yellow just got brighter. Other than the color, the fit was good, the fabric is very soft and comfortable medium weight, but it does pill badly in the wash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I plan to return it. I plan to return the sweatshirt as it was too small and material too thin. I am looking for a thick, warm version of a sweatshirt.
Date published: 2018-02-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love how soft it is and I love how it looks five star and the color is just perfect and I love how it feels on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grey Sweatshirt I am so glad I can buy sweatshirts from Blair. I can't seem to find them anywhere else.
Date published: 2018-02-14
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't care for it! I didn't really care for the color of this sweatshirt. And also when I washed it, it did pill and also ran smaller than I hoped. I would not buy this again.
Date published: 2018-02-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from colors are true & medium weight Just what I wanted. Also, true crew-neck. Do not like scoop-necks for cold Winter weather.
Date published: 2018-02-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just ok Runs small for a size 2X. I wanted it big to use as a shirt for around the house. Have not washed it yet so we will see if it shrinks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BETTER THAN BASIC SWEATSHIRT I ORDERED THE LIGHT BLUE IN MED, IT IS PRETTY, BUT IT IS SO BIG THAT I WASHED IT IN HOT WATER TO SHRINK IT. IT IS STILL A LARGE IN SIZE. IT IS WARM AND PRETTY. I NEEDED A SMALL AND COULD HAVE SHRANK IT TO MAYBE FIT BETTER. IF YOU ARE REALLY TALL A ND LARGE YOU WOULD BE HAPPY WITH THE MED SIZE.

IS THE BOTTOM BAND TIGHT?
RMCD M on Dec 5, 2017

I normally wear a small, is it true to size should I get a small or a medium? I like them kinda loose but not too baggy
A shopper on Oct 30, 2017
