I really wanted to dislike this sweatshirt due to the price, but it is really perfect for what I wanted it for. I am a teacher, and my classroom sometimes gets really cold, so I wanted a sweatshirt that could look somewhat professional. I've tried other sweatshirts, but this fits the bill perfectly. The cut is flattering, and the sweatshirt can be dressed up easily by adding a scarf. I keep the sweatshirt on all the time now, so I think I'm going to have to go in for another one! I am 5'3, 145 lbs, 34 G bra, and I ordered a medium. I can wear a lightweight shirt underneath and zip it up all the way. It fits snugly that way, but not overly tight.
I have several items from American Giant...mainly hoodies and crewnecks. I ordered this lovely beauty to solve a serious problem! What started as an affinity for a hoodie has now blossomed into a full-fledged obsession for all things A.G. I work in an office where our dress code specifically states we are not to wear sweatshirts or hoodies.
However, after owning a hoodie for a few weeks, I was hooked. I would wear the hoodie to work, change into my blazers, then as soon as I could get out, put the hoodie right back on. I reallllly don't want to take it off! I have only begrudgingly removed my hoodie to wash it at the last possible second, and then stare at the laundry until it's done & I throw it right back on!
So, I ordered this jacket since I could wear it in the office and still feel like I'm wearing my A.G. "garment cocoon" without looking too, ahem, 'comfortable'. Well, when I placed my order, it said it was back-ordered until Jan 30, 2015. Oh, no!! Oh, well, such is life, right!? Well, to my surprise, she arrived today, and not a moment too soon. I head back to the office on Monday, and I couldn't be happier b/c now I have this new recruit to take with me to start 2015 on the right foot! THANK YOU, American Giant for getting her to me so quickly! I'm ALMOST excited to go back to work now that I have my new jacket! ~xoxoxo, Summer
For trivia purposes, I am 5'6", average build, small waist & curvy on bottom, 36B bra, size 6 on top and bottom in most things, and the mediums have worked like a charm. I bought a LARGE sweatshirt crewneck for lazier days around the house, but it is much too big to look "put together". The mediums are not tight, but do skim my body just right.
According to the chart, I was right in between M and L. I opted for the large since I prefer things a little looser, and it fits really well in the torso, with enough space for layering. The sleeves are a bit too long for me, so I have the cuffs folded back. I love the hoodless-hoodie! I have enough hooded clothes!
Perfect fit, style and quality! I am 5'6" and 175 lbs. XL works well with a sweater underneath. I think I might have a new addiction.

Great change from the hoodie. Please make in more colors; forest green, navy, white, etc.

I'm 5'2 125lbs and bought a women's mock neck size medium in the grey. I absolutely love it. It's just the right size to layer a lightweight sweater under. I'm a sweatshirt junkie so it's a must have.
Just received this jacket and it is delicious! I ordered a M and it fits perfectly, I'm 5'5" and 140lbs and couldn't be happier with the fit. The quality is fantastic and I look forward to ordering more, well worth the $$!
Please let me know when you make this in red. The black one I just received is fabulous!!!
I am not even close to being a super model.. I am actually working very hard at losing some baby weight. I am 5'2, 190 lbs, very pear shaped. This XL fits nice! It's a bit long but super warm and stylish. Thanks!
I just received my first American Giant garment, a women's heavyweight zip mock neck sweatshirt. This is by far the nicest sweatshirt I have ever seen or owned. The fabric, style and quality of construction exceeded my greatest expectations. Thank you for making such a fine product!
I bought two AG heavyweight hooded sweatshirts within the past year, but after awhile I realized that I did not really like the hood. I didn't have need of it, and it made the sweatshirt too bulky and heavy. So I decided to try the mock, and I LOVE IT. It's exactly like the hooded sweatshirt (which was great except for the hood), so without the hood makes it perfect for me. I will order another one when they are back in stock. I am 5'7", 130 lb, long-waisted and this fits like it was custom made for me.
Just got this jacket in the mail: I LOVE it.
Perfect fit: slim, flattering, classic lines. Has a kind of moto-jacket look, but without the fuss. Hits the right note between sophisticated and totally laid back. Loving it! Also, it's a perfect weight: warm, but not too warm - will layer nicely over t's and under coats.
Sizing details: I'm 5'10", 34B, 150lbs, lanky build. Surprisingly, the medium not only fit well in the torso, but is actually long enough in the arms (reaches my wrists! amazing!)
Really pleased with this purchase. Thanks AG.
Wow! I fell in love with this shirt from the time I unwrapped it from the box. It has the perfect fit for my body type, being both flattering and comfortable. Please keep on producing that stuff! :)
Ordered this one wo the hood so I could wear it as a jacket with scarves or under my snowboard jacket. It's perfect! Sizing chart was spot on. It's heavy material but not thick and bulky. They mentioned a fleecy inside but it's more like brushed cotton? Whatever they do it's great material and built to last. Perfect for cold weather. I know I'm going to wear this all the time so I ordered a HW Hoodie Zip and a MW Hoodie Zip. That should cover every occasion :) I do wish they offered more colors. Especially faded ones like blue, black and red and navy. Beggars can't be choosers. Maybe next year.
I love this sweatshirt! It is fitted enough to be flattering, but loose enough to move in comfortably. I especially love the interior pockets, sized exactly for a phone. It is exceptionally well made, and I can tell that it will only look better with washings and age.
This is a warm garment, more like a fall jacket than a typical sweatshirt. If you want an indoor sweatshirt, you might want a lighter weight. I'm a walker, and this is perfect for that.
