Lynda B.wrote a review of Patagonia R1 Fleece Hooded Pullover - Women's on March 26, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I now own 4 R1s, this last one with a hood. I don't like to layer hoods under ski jackets. But wanted to have one for other purposes. This one fits differently. I have moved to mediums in Patagonia because although I am short, weigh 119 lbs. (5'1") I have hips and breasts. I returned the medium this time for a small. The arms were really long and the length...I could have worn it as a mini dress. The small is also long and I know, people like it so it tucks into pants, etc. but if you have hips, the slim fit can be not so flattering.
I have maintained for a long time that there needs to be a medium petite or something in between the small and medium. I am always surprised when people much taller than me and heavier say they ordered a small or even XS?
I have noticed one of my older ones has started to pill. All in all, I love my R1s and insisted my husband get one. On sale, this is especially a great buy and can go anywhere. The black is even a little dressier looking.
