Knit shorty overall features a square cut neckline and straight back with detachable, adjustable straps. This versatile warm-up garment can be worn with straps as a romper or rolled down for a short! Machine wash cold on gentle cycle, hang dry. Do not bleach.
I love shorty warm ups for class in our cold climate. This one is very form fitting (5'5", 115 lbs, ordered a medium) but still has great coverage in the booty. If you're viewing this on a phone, the texture of the fabric is ribbed from the waist up and plain knit from the waist down. I didn't like it at first, but now I think it adds a little element of separation that's nice. The straps don't seem very solid, but I'd buy this again.
I injured my lower back a few weeks ago and was looking for something to keep that specific area warm during class. This romper did exactly that without bunching up or inhibiting movement.
As a side note it is also quite flattering: I am short/patite and quite muscular so I am always concerned that something like this will make me look even shorter. In my opinion it in no way interfered with my line. (I bought the small) Also it is so light and soft that sometimes I would forget I was wearing something over my leo.
Major thumbs up.
I'm still on a quest to find a shorty romper that is a little loose and a little longer and this is not it. That said, this does take care of my need to cover my post-babies belly. So, folded over it makes me feel more secure in the tummy area. I just wish it were a little longer in the thigh area. I will certainly keep wearing it in the warmer months, though. For reference, I am 5'8", 150 lbs. and I ordered a large.
These are so well-made and soft...I have both the shorty and full-length versions. I ordered the shorty in Petite, and while it fits beautifully, it tends to ride up and show a little booty. It isn't noticeable to others because I always wear black leos, but even at 5'2" and 98 lbs I'd prefer just a bit more coverage. I will order a Small next time.
(For reference, I'd prefer the Petite in the full-length, because the legs run very long in those.)
I love this! I've always been scared to get a product like this because of sizing. I am a choreographer and just getting back into taking dance classes after quite a long break. I am a bigger girl than most dancers ( curvy/size 14/16) so I was concerned about the fit being too tight. It is not at all. Its a wonderful warmup piece that I can move quite well in and I don't feel self conscious at all paired with a leo and tights. I know that when I get back into great shape for me (toned curves and size 10/12) It will look even better on me. If you are on the bigger size of the spectrum and you are a dancer this is such a wonderful piece to have.
P.S. I also have the Natalie Adult Long Warm-Up Overall and my review is the same! LOVE them both
Bought this as a second back warmer for contortion training and its my favorite! Ordered a medium. Looked very small when I pulled it out of the packaging but once I started putting it on I discovered it to be very stretchy and soft. Hugged very nicely and made me feel tiny (5'2 and 130 so im petite but too muscular to be tiny so this was a nice surprise) only problem was that my straps were sewed on the outside of the garment but you dont notice until very close inspection. recommended it to my students :)
I'm 5'5" and weigh 108 lbs... Would I be better off ordering a size small or medium?
It is difficult to give sizing information based off of height and weight. Please take your measurements and refer the sizing guide listed under the product information.
The best measurement to go by for this item is the girth measurement. To measure girth, start the measuring tape at the front shoulder indent, go through the legs, then up your back to return to the starting point. If the girth measurement is on the cusp of one size, it is usually best to go up to the next size.
