I just bought this hoodie to bring with me on a trip to Hawaii...primarily to use as a cover-up with a cute skirt i bought. I havent worn it in the sun yet, but it's lightweight and cute and flattering. The fit is loose, but not overly huge. i usually wear a small on top (size 4), and the small in this fits the way i want. I wouldnt want it to be tightly fitted while wearing in the warm sun anyway. I really like how the jacket can be partially unzipped on the bottom also. I'm happy with this purchase.
