Sizing Off (?)
I just received my mystery gi! I got a Maeda gi, I'm not sure what style as it is not on the website. The pants are comically short while the jacket is a bit big (nothing that a little shrinking can't fix). I'm not sure if this is the particular gi, or just a Maeda issue as I don't have any other Maeda gis.
Nice but stained
I loved the quality of the white gi I received, unfortunately the pants were stained with blue lines from the drawstring.
I purchased this mystery gi along with a Maeda gi on sale. I, too, was apprehensive, but after reading the reviews for both the women and men mystery gis, I decided to give it a try. They even tell you in the product description that they only choose from the best selection of brands!. I went with a size F5 because I spoke with a representative who was super helpful in helping me choose a size and brand that would fit my curvy lower body. I was super excited to get my gi in the mail, and when I opened the box, I was stoked to find that my Mystery gi was a black Kingz balístico 2.0! I'm going to order more mystery items. Size F5
I was a little apprehensive in ordering the mystery GI, because I am not a fan of fancy colours like pink, lavender etc. But due to the price less than 50 bucks, I took a chance and could not be happier. I will definitely order this again, hope next time I am lucky again and receive a classic colour. In terms of quality, it is fantastic. I received a black Maeda Best series, and the quality is amazing. The jacket is on the thicker side, which I like, and ripstop pants. What else can you ask for. High quality for a fraction of the price. This GI is better than another one I bought at full price from the same brand. Aesthetically, I am really happy as well. The GI is simple on the outside with some red embroidery, and has a beautiful sublimation print on the inside, just beautiful! My only complain, is the sizing. I bought an F4, should have gotten with an F3. It is a bit baggy on me. When looking at sizing chart F4 was the way to go, but pants are to baggy at the waist. The jacket is tight on butt, but very baggy at shoulders. Since this is a women cut, I thought the shoulder to hip ratio would be better, since women have smaller shoulders compared to hips. Unfortunately the GI says it is already per-shrunk, but will try to shrink it a bit more. Next time I am definitely going a size down. Even though it is a little baggy, I can still use it. I am really happy with this purchase.
Amazing deal :)
Would be weary of sizing though because I ordered a F1 at first because thats my usual size but since the brands are random, the F1 ended up being too small for the top even though the bottoms fit. Couldn't reorder a F2 so went for a F3 and will shrink but fits way way better than the first order! So excited to use.
