However, while the athleisure staple has racked up hundreds of positive reviews, several users note the sweatshirt runs large, so size down if you want a more fitted look. 

"Love the longer length for over leggings [but] it does run very large." writes one shopper. "I wear a small and the extra-small is still quite big on me."

"I wanted to love this sweatshirt, but it runs so large and the sleeves are so long," echos another reviewer. "I tried both a small and medium and found this sweatshirt, no matter how you slice it, runs too big!"

Verdict

The Sweaty Betty After Class Sweatshirt has earned more than 500 reviews from Nordstrom shoppers who call it a "keeper" and say it's a "soft and warm" staple for working out and beyond.
