I picked up the XL tried it on, it fitted, I put the mac on, it fitted, I bought both, then when I went to wear the shirt I really wasn't sure and it has taken me all this time to figure out why.
I have put it on a few times over the last year or so and each time I have taken it off and put it back on the hanger. I don't think my figure is a friend of the boyfriend. One of my daughters bought me a boyfriend style cashmere jumper from The Outnet for my birthday last December and that doesn't do me any favours either if I'm honest, so don't just assume because you are an overweight apple shape that any big and baggy old item will cut the mustard, trust me, it won't.
A Line, swing and tunic shapes remain my best friend when it comes to shirts, tops or jumpers (and dresses) but saying that, if the fabric is soft and drapes well, you will be fine, I have other shirts or blouses that aren't a problem. So in hindsight, could it be proportions, as I am rather short, could it be that the garment is not yet wash softened, remains stiff so doesn't hang well, or that there is too much fabric around the hips where I am a dress size smaller than up top? Who knows, but it has made me cautious of boyfriend styles although I did bite the bullet and wear it out last week, seemed such a waste to keep it hanging there and being from Gap I don't consider it ebay worthy.
