Do Adidas Hoodies Run Big? (Which Run Big, Small & True To Size)

Sharing is caring!

Yes, Adidas hoodies do run big in sleeves, and the majority of loose and regular fit hoodies tend to run baggier in the tummy and waist area. Among the two, the loose fit is more spacious in sleeves and longer compared to the regular one.

But the majority of Adidas hoodies are not that oversized to consider them running big as having a little space is needed to accommodate layerings.

So, In my opinion, most of them run true to size but among them, some are tighter in sleeves and body to an extent where it will be good to get a size up than down.

Also, some hoodies are shorter in length as mentioned in the table provided.

Let’s check out some bestseller Adidas hoodies that run small, big, or are true to size.

I insist you go through that table as it will give you a clear insight of all Adidas hoodies fitting that are not even listed in the table.

How Do Adidas Hoodies Fit? (User’s Perspective)

For hoodies Adidas offers 3 types of fitting:

Slim Fit

In terms of practical experience, the slim fit of Adidas hoodies fits the form.

Meaning, there will be not much space, not baggy at all and if you go with your usual sizing then such hoodies will feel a bit snug because their main duty is to highlight your body.

In common, most Adidas hoodie wearers find the slim fit to be on the tighter side and nearly all will feel running a bit short.

So getting a size up in this fit will be a money saver for those who want the slim fit look and yet a comfortable wearing experience.

Regular Fit

Regular fit hoodies are generally spacious and provide a form-fit look to a very minimal extent.

This type of is something that most people will love to have in fall/winter times when you need to wear a sweatshirt underneath without losing mobility.

Not necessarily the case with other brands but it is most commonly seen in Adidas (especially hoodies)

In most cases, this fit would not demand sizing down or up unless you love to wear baggy hoodies will go for an upsize.

IMO, sizing down is only needed when you love to remove the unwanted space around the waist and sleeves or want a shorter size.

Loose Fit

Hmm. this is something you need to know.

Any loose-fit Adidas hoodie tends to lean on a run big side, sometimes not a little big but huge.

So you may consider getting a one-two size down and you will not get a perfect fit.

Although, it depends more on personal preference.
