U2 Joshua Tree 2017 WOMENS Merch
« on: May 14, 2017, 07:04:50 PM »
Quick question - for the women's t-shirts...

Did they size them for supermodels again (like SOI and 360 merch) or regular women?

Anyone know what the brand is for the "I Want To Run/I Want To Hide" t-shirt? I want to order off fanfire, but there's no size chart.

I normally wear a medium/large in ladies t's - but even the 2XL from the last 2 tours were scuba-tight.

They use European sizes for most of their women's merch.  I usually buy men's, it is easier to know what you are getting

I usually wear a M or L t-shirt, and I had to buy a 2XL in the white shirt with "U2" on the front and the photos of each member on the back.  I assumed they must be women's fitted sizes, but it doesn't really taper like a women's shirt usually does.  I almost feel like I'm wearing a 2XL in a kids' size.  But it fits great, and I dig it!  👍🏼

Has anyone purchased either the unisex hoodie or the maroon women's hoodie? I'm curious how the fit is.

LOL Shouldn't a 3:33 post be a little more important and significant?

I only looked at the women's shirt with the gold tree last night and it was child-sized even in XL (the largest size they had). I am 5'8" and 160lbs so definitely not petite but I wouldn't call myself large either.

So frustrating. I'm your size and although I also don't consider myself extremely large, the men's shirts are the only ones that fit. But they look terrible. The cut is awful especially if one actually has boobs

My problem is more the hips! The men's large fits fine around the boobs but then stands on my butt.  :-\

My husband bought this last night not realizing it was women's!  ;D But the cut is totally straight, not tailored in the waist at all. He's 170lbs and 5'11" and the L fits him fine.

I may end up with a hoodie rather than shirt in that case

The hoodies are nice. Not too thick, not too thin.

IKR, It's like they size their women's wear based on the Trip Thru Your Wires on-screen cowgirl.
I ended up getting the white motel 2XL and I'm pretty much same height/weight as you...

I have so many U2 concert t-shirts that are UK medium but are like tents on me.I'm 5ft 3" and a UK size 8 so I was glad that fitted women's t-shirts were introduced a few years ago.I'm definitely going to try and get hold of the maroon hoodie in Rome.It looks great.
