Fit Review: Rest Day Pullover

I just received the Rest Day Pullover I ordered on upload and I really, really like it. I ordered the size 10, my TTS and although it's slouchy the band at the bottom hem prevents me from sizing down to my occasional 8 which would also cause me to lose the butt covering length I like. I love the thin cozy material and especially the zipped kangaroo pockets and the seam designs on the side torso. I think those seams really make this pullover slimming in profile. This is an effortless sweater that I will get a lot of use out of on a daily basis thanks to the pockets and the thin and stretchy cotton frenchy terry material. Because of the thinness and lack of a hood it makes it easy to layer my Apres Run Anorak over it. My only nit picks about this sweater is that I wish it came in other colors. I never buy Lululemon black cotton french terry because it fades horribly in my experience, oatmeal (Heathered Dune) makes me look sicky and so the only color option for me is the light grey (Fossil) which goes with everything. I would have loved this in Deep Indigo, heathered or solid or even Dazzling or Ultraviolet. Won't I be pissed if I rip the tags off and one of those colors comes out. The other thing is I wish it had the usual thumbholes at the wrists. I think if you have longer arms you may find the length of the arms on this a bit short. Anyways, this one is definitely a keeper for me. It's everything I loved about the Don't Hurry Be Happy Pullover without all of those things that annoyed me (the neck on the DHBH drove me crazy and the thickness/warmness of it made it impossible for me to wear).
