Holiday 2010 Giveaway: Fresh Produce Women's Sportswear [CLOSED]

With store locations nationwide and an online store, Fresh Produce is the go-to retailer for those who cherish comfort in their daily lifestyle. This brand has transformed what once was seen as beachwear or vacation-wear into clothing that can be worn everyday.

I was sent an outfit consisting of the Fresh Produce Travel Tunic ($46) and the Travel Capri ($49). Both pieces are made from a 100% cotton jersey knit. To say this outfit is comfortable would be an understatement. The pants are not quite fitting for venturing out in the colder New England weather, but I love wearing this outfit at home, making it perfect for 3 out of the 4 seasons for me.

I had ordered the Travel Tunic in the XL/XXL size. The body is extremely wide and boxy, which is part of the comfort, but even when I only lift my arms halfway, the shirt does lift up to show my mid-section. When I wear this top out in public, I wear a tank top underneath. The other thing about the top is that the seam where the body is pieced together across the middle had a 1-inch split in it. Because the split was on the seam, it was extremely easy for me to repair.

I ordered the capri pants in a size medium. I usually take a 9/10 and they were a perfect fit. They sat right below the waist, which is the way I prefer my pants.

Both pieces washed wonderfully. There was no shrinking, pilling, fading, or misshaping. I find these pieces to be very versatile and can be worn with many of the other casual tops and bottoms in my existing wardrobe.
