Spider Gwen Costume Zip-Up Hoodie

- Standard sizes are cut wider through the bust than are Fitted sizes and have a looser, straighter fit.
The 80% cotton 20% polyester Spider Gwen Costume Zip-Up Hoodie is the hoodie that Gwen Stacy actually probably wears. The best thing about the Spider Gwen Costume Zip-Up Hoodie, other than the fact that it looks just like the alternate Spider-Man's costume, is that the drawstring on the Spider Gwen Costume Zip-Up Hoodie has metal caps! How many hoodies do you see with that kind of quality, eh?

It runs a little small but it's the perfect hoodie! Design, quality, everything
Pro - Looks wonderful overall, the best part is the oversized hood which shows off the inside design and is accurate to the character. The purple and blue areas of the hoodie are bright and vibrant. Con - the black colored area of the hoodie arrived looking slightly faded, as if it had been pre-washed and lost some of its color (a very sharp contrast to the bright blue and purple). I'm honestly afraid to wash it as I think the black will fade further. The material is also pretty thin, so wear an under layer if its cold out. Very comfortable to wear.
Only thing that I don't really like I'd that black body part is painted/dyed so it will fade with time and washes.
I bought a 2XL just because I bought a Large batman slim hoodie from this site a while back and it ran real small. Normally I'd wear a regular woman's Large or X-Large sweatshirt depending if I want it more baggy. I do really l like this sweatshirt. It's a little thinner than I thought it would be, the hood is pretty big and the sleeves are long enough. My only complaint is that I wish the bottom would run longer.
I had very high hopes, but the sizing is much smaller than expected. I normally wear a large t-shirt so ordered XL, that was too tight so exchanged (very easily and well done) into 2XL which is still tight in the arms and midsection. The most disappointing aspect is the design and color. The black along the sides looks faded right out of the package and is a totally different shade from the trim. I washed it once, followed washing directions exactly as instructed, and all of the white parts now have a pink tinge. Very unhappy with this product, especially for the cost and since I was hoping to wear as a companion "costume" to my son's Spider-Man. It feels like it was very poorly designed and constructed.
I was worried about it not fitting at first after reading reviews, but I can zip it just fine. It comes small and there isn't much stretch so get a size larger than you would normally wear for a snug fit or go 2 sizes for a loose fit. The sleeves are nice and long, and the hood is oversized to match Gwen's outfit. It's comfortable material on the inside, but the painted areas need to be handled with care. Overall I'm happy with it and will wear on special occasions.
As a huge fan of spidergwen; who doesn't want to own a spidergwen sweater?!? Despite some of the negative ratings/reviews I bought it anyway. So like most of the negative reviews these are true: Yes it runs small, order a size up. Yes, the black part of the sweater looks faded, you can't tell in the pictures on the site, but I notice it right away when I opened the package. It is thin, so don't expect it to keep you too warm! Overall, it really isn't worth the $50-$60 it's selling for. $30 minimum....but if you're a crazy fan like me; you'll buy it despite the honesty of the reviews.
