As quarantine continues, so does the rising importance of comfortable, chic loungewear. Long forgotten are the days when cozy clothing was just for sick days — our sweats must now be comfortable enough to wear all day, chic enough to carry you through a Zoom meeting, *and* look cute when you go down the block to flirt with the corner store guy (it’s lonely out here, okay?)
Entireworld has passed all of these tests with flying colors, with their signature Technicolor sweatsuits that have been catching our eye all year. Their recycled, organic materials and strong visual advertising has made Entireworld a favorite amongst celebrities, influencers, and newfound WFHers.
I am always quite wary when shopping for new clothes online. I’m rather… gifted in the chest department, which makes it *very* difficult to shop for tops. I can range anywhere from a Small to an XL, depending on the cut and material of a piece. This proves especially difficult when shopping for something that is intentionally loose or baggy — my boobs, bless their hearts, can disrupt the oversized look, creating a snag-and-jiggle situation that leaves me adjusting more than relaxing. Not so cozy.
If, like me, you are an in-between size kind of person, you’re familiar with the potential pros and cons of each — and the obsessive overthinking that is necessary to make a decision. While it is nice in some way to have so many possibilities, this dilemma makes online shopping an utterly stressful endeavor. Here were my options:
Small: Most likely will not fit. If it does, there is a slight chance that it will skim my curves juuust enough to be sleek and sexy.
Medium: Safest bet, but at worst can look awkward without the benefit of either extreme.
Large: Go full send on the bagginess, running the risk of getting lost in too much fabric.
In fact, the Giant Sweatshirt and Turtledress are two cuts that are potentially the most risky for my body type. I truly did not know which course of action was the best. But frankly, I’ve played all the board games in my house. I was ready for a new challenge. I ordered a Small in each, and was ready to work from there.
This was the piece I was most scared about. The straight cut was a huge gamble, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I am SO happy that I took a risk with the Small, and it worked out just as I had hoped — a little understated curvy silhouette action. The first night I got it, I wore it by itself with a pair of platform boots and a slicked-back bun. I found myself rubbing my arms all day, just to feel the smoothness of the wool-cashmere blend, which incidentally made me look like I was doing an arms-crossed power pose. I honestly felt like such a badass. Places to go, people to see. Plus, the length and weight were perfect for a Bay Area fall, meaning that it paired excellently with the light jacket I was taking on and off all day (ah, microclimates).
Sweatshirts are very near and dear to my heart. Not to make this whole article boob-centric, but I have a long, complicated history with covering my body that began during puberty and has only grown with time. Sweatshirts have always been my friend, many times as a way to hide behind fabric on days when I don’t feel like bouncing all over the place. That was a long-winded way of saying that I’ve worn, owned, and borrowed a lot of sweatshirts. The Giant Sweatshirt is by far, no contest, the softest one I’ve ever put on. As their website boasts, the material is “soft AF Japanese organic brushed back terry with a wee bit of recycled polyester.” I am always down to support a sustainably made garment, and as for the brushed back terry, they were not lying. After a warm bath and some nice lotion, the feel is truly *chefs kiss*. My skin was singing when I put this on. Again, the Small ended up being a perfect fit –– it is not very tight around my chest, so the oversized look still comes across. I love the giant sleeves, and the loose fit makes it perfect for layering underneath: I wore it over a tight turtleneck, with a simple pair of jeans and my trusty platform boots. The bright pink color is both fun for bedroom selfies and makes a nice statement when you do manage to step outside ( or so sayeth my corner store guy ;) ).
As sweats have become embraced as stylish, it has been nice to learn how to wear them in a way that feels put together. I have been so grateful to find comfortable clothing that flatters, rather than mutes, parts of my body. Entireworld’s new pieces make me feel all elegant and professional in my Zoom meetings, and beyond ready for the naps that immediately follow. And better yet, I feel genuinely sexy. Pubescent me could never.
