Athleta Semi-Annual Sale: Try On

Sometime in that vortex between Christmas and New Years, I posted that I had purchased some items from the Athleta Semi-Annual sale (find it here). Well, my order came in super quickly, so I figured I’d do a little ‘website photos vs. real life photos’ try on session for you all.

Elation V-Neck Built-In Bra Tank D-DD in Acacia Olive – $64 marked down to $29.99 (and then 20% off). Link: Size I ordered: Large.

As I mentioned in my original post, I love it that Athleta makes items specifically for larger cup sizes. Typically, a shelf bra would just jam the knockers up to your chin and I’m sorry, but I’m not wanting some sort of Bridgerton situation when I’m on a hike. However, since they offer this in a D-DD, on top of the size large I’d typically order… it fits!

I love this top and I especially like the criss-cross action in the back. This will be perfect for a base-layer under my hoodies in the winter for telework days. I’m sure it will also make an appearance on our next Arizona hiking trip too.

It’s also crazy flattering. I’m typically a size 12-ish and I have a tummy… but between the leggings (I’m wearing the Salutation Slash 7/8’s) and the top everything is nicely smoothed.

Rating: 5/5. I love it!

Nighttime Bliss Sleep Tees – purchased both Black and Deep Burgandy – $39 marked down to $9.97 each (and then 20% off). Link: Size I ordered: XL

I was hoping these were as soft as the ones I have from Soma and I was not disappointed! They are so soft and silky and perfect for sleeping. I sized up to an XL because I like a swooshy shirt when I sleep and these are great.

The only thing I don’t love is that they have a cute little slit at the sides, which visually is very pretty. However, I wore one to bed last night and had to yank it down because my back/side was chilly.

Rating: 4/5. Happy with the purchase and these will get lots of wear. If they drive me crazy, I’ll take 2 minutes and sew up the slit.

Cozy Karma Hoodie Sweatshirt in Spiced Cabernet – $109 marked down to $69.99 (and then 20% off). Link: Size I ordered: XL

I like my hoodies oversized, so I ordered this in an XL. And it fits mostly great, but is a bit cropped… which is fine. The color is beautiful in person, however this one is going back.

Reason 1: I HATE the velour-type fuzzy fabric on the inside of the hoodie. In fact, I immediately felt overheated. Reason 2: I don’t like the front pocket – it pokes up and looks kind of dumpy. Also, no thumb holes.

Rating: 2/5. Don’t love this one and it will be returned.

Retroplush Revive Hoodie Sweatshirt in Clover Berry – $99 marked down to $59.99 (and then 20% off). Link: Size I ordered: XL

Now, THIS hoodie is a winner! I wasn’t sure if I would like the color on me, but it’s a nice warm berry-type of red and like nothing else in my closet. The hoodie fits perfect – a little loose, but not overly schlumpy. It’s warm, but not too warm. And the thumb holes are so, so good.

I put this on to go run some errands on Monday and have barely taken it off since then.

Rating: 5/5. LOVE this hoodie!

As a recap, I ordered a total of 5 items, which had the retail total of $350. After the Semi-Annual sale and an extra 20% off coupon I found online (I used Mary20), my total after tax and free shipping was: $152.57. I will be returning the Cozy Karma Hoodie, which will give me back $56. So that takes my total down to about $96 for 4 items.

  1. Love the red hoodie! It just does what a hoodie is supposed to. So many are dumpy looking, but this one is cute! And, has the thumb holes! This is my fave out of all of the pieces. The tank is so pretty, though, and I got a laugh from the Bridgerton remark!
