Aldi clothing can be hit or miss in terms of fit and sizing, but with the store’s easy return policy, it’s easy to try things out and return them if they don’t fit. I recently purchased a Sherpa pullover I spotted in the weekly ad.
The Serra Ladies Sherpa Quarter Zip Pullover (Product Code: 13205) cost cost $14.99 at the time of publication.
Here’s more information about the pullover, according to Aldi:
- Available in Ladies’ Sizes S–XL or Men’s Sizes M–XL
- Ladies’ sizes come in Olive or Pink, and Men’s sizes come in Dark Gray
- Features cozy Sherpa kangaroo pockets
- Includes a quarter zip
- OEKO-TEX certified
- Comes with an adjustable toggle at the bottom front hem
- 100% polyester
- Made in Bangladesh
The back of the packaging features a sizing chart for the ladies’ sizes: a small fits sizes 4-6, a medium fits sizes 8-10, a large fits sizes 12-14, and an extra large fits sizes 16-18.
This can be machine washed in cold water on the gentle cycle and tumbled dry on low heat. Do not iron it.
I usually wear a medium, so that’s what I picked up in this pullover. I got the pink color. Both the pink and olive colors for women are very muted and neutral.
I wanted to like this pullover, but the fit is off. The sleeves are on the short side, which is especially noticeable whenever I move my arms. The bottom of the pullover itself is somewhat short, too, hitting higher on my hips and waist than I hoped it would. While the pullover is not tight, it does not have as much room or give as I thought it would for a medium.
The Sherpa material is very thick and puffy, like wearing a cloud. In theory, this should be really comfortable. However, because the sleeves and the fit are so off, it doesn’t feel as cozy as it should. I feel like I’m mostly tugging at it and trying to adjust the coverage.
I was about to pack this up and return it to Aldi, but then my tween daughter — who wears a girls’ extra large or an adult small in some shirts — tried it on and loved it. The sleeves fit perfectly on her. While the body of the pullover is on the longer side, it works for her with a pair of leggings, and she has some room to grow. She is my child who loves soft sensory things like shag rugs and stuffed animals, so she loves the feel of this pullover as well. She appreciates that both the inside and outside feature the Sherpa material, since I bought her a Sherpa jacket from Target earlier this year that disappointed her because the soft parts were only on the outside.
We’ll keep this, but if you’re thinking about getting this pullover, be aware that the fit may not be what you expect.
The Serra Ladies Sherpa Quarter Zip Pullover is very thick and soft, but the sleeves run short and throw off the fit for the entire piece. The medium-sized pullover didn’t hit me right, but my tween daughter loves it and it works for her.
