Redbubble Hoodies vs Print Quality
Overall, from the customer reviews I read, people raved about how Redbubble’s hoodies had sharp, colorful prints.
The colors are vibrant and the sweaters display the artwork very well. I actually found that the hoodies I bought looked as good or better than the product images on the website.
However, although rare, there are some instances where you might get a sweater with an image that isn’t as sharp as it should be. This is probably because an artist uploaded a small or subpar image to Redbubble.com. This can make the print on the sweater look a bit blurry or pixelated.
If this problem happens to you, don’t panic!
Redbubble is well known for making sure its customers are 100% happy with their shopping experience. Just let them know about any issue you have and I know, from experience, that they’ll make it right (hassle-free).
Another issue you might come across is when an artist puts a description that includes things like “iridescent” or “gold”. All hoodies have colors that are matte and have no glitter or iridescence to them.
Another thing I find a little odd about these hoodies is that when you first get them, you’ll probably notice a smell. Some people compare this smell to vinegar. This smell is caused by the printing process and it will go away after you wash your sweater.
Love my hoodie. Seems to be good quality, although had that “new apparel” smell out of the package… Happy with my purchase. – Lagowski on Feb 3, 2020 [RES]
It’s best to wash all your Redbubble hoodies in cold water and line dry so that the prints on the sweaters don’t start to fade.
My favorite tip to give anyone is to wash your sweaters inside-out and don’t iron the print. This is a great way to ensure the print on the sweater continues to be totally awesome.
This was my first time ordering from Redbubble and I cannot wait to order more things!! It’s unreal how great the quality of this sweater is! I’ve barely taken it off since I’ve bought it … it’s been slept in, washed, dried in a dryer and more and the photo hasn’t cracked nor has the comfy quality gone away.. IN LOVE – Heidi K. on Apr 6, 2018 [RES]
I was sceptical of ordering from Redbubble. I’ve ordered from similar websites before and been disappointed by the quality of the hoodies and t-shirts printed and they’ve usually shrank the first time they’ve been washed. But I couldn’t find what I wanted elsewhere so took the risk. So glad I did. The hoody is really good quality, so soft and cozy and its been through the wash several times now and hasnt shrunk or lost its shape. My daughter lives in it! – emma t. on Jun 24, 2020 [RES]
Pullover Hoodies (Unisex)
Most reviewers had nothing but good things to say about Redbubble’s pullover hoodie and the quality of the printed design/artwork.
Fab quality and I LOVE the print on it. It was just what I wanted!! – Lorraine M. on Dec 27, 2020 [RES]
True to size, super soft inside, and it keeps me pretty warm! The print was done nicely and seems like it will stay secure and not peel off. So all and all a win! – April L on Jan 2, 2017 [RES]
However, one reviewer mentioned that she was disappointed that the print was not as big as shown on the website (I don’t find this to be the case).
…Soft and cozy material. The print is a little [disappointing]. It’s not as big as on the picture on your site. Yet print is sharp even though the design is very photo-like. – Sonja on Sep 7, 2018 [RES]
A few reviewers said that the print didn’t come off in the wash. As long as you follow the washing instructions, you shouldn’t have any problems.
Super soft and washes up well, even in warm water. Graphic has not faded after several washes. Very pleased with the quality! – Anita on Jan 29, 2021 [RES]
This pullover is thick and made out of good fabrics! The print is sharp and beautiful. I have washed it several times already and it still looks and feels great. – Adar R. on Jan 6, 2020 [RES]
Most reviewers find these hoodies comfortable and thick with a nice, soft interior (and I totally agree with them). This sweater is great for cold weather!
In all honesty Redbubble has the softest hoodies ever. I’ve ordered many other times and the hoodies are soft from the inside and always arrive without damage. Love it! – Edgar A. on Apr 20, 2018 [RES]
ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It’s thick and warms you up almost instantly. I usually wear a small [but bought] a 2X large, and it’s the coziest thing in my closet. The hood contours the head very well and the string isn’t the type to frill at the ends easily. Other than the price, I would 10/10 recommend this product! – Bayan Y. on Oct 12, 2020 [RES]
A few guys mentioned that you should go at least a size up (although most reviewers said that size fits perfectly). But if you like your hoodies baggy, you might want to go 2 sizes up.
I really suggest that you take measurements and visit the size guide before you buy this hoodie! It’s worth the effort.
I’m not impressed with the size. I ordered a large and it fits like a small. – Dawn M. on Aug 16, 2020 [RES]
Ordered a medium for my 17 yr old son, he says it fits fine but if they like them baggy go up a size. Good quality, very snuggly. Print quality very good. – Elizabeth G. on Jan 10, 2021 [RES]
This hoodie feels amazing, really good quality overall. The design by the artist is amazing and looks really nice. Bought it as a gift and sized up and it was in fact quite large so I guess this is probably very true to size so I wouldn’t worry too much about them being on the smaller end. Redbubble coming through as always. – Alice H. on Jan 7, 2020 [RES]
One girl mentioned that the bottom elastic of the hoodie was a little tight-fitting. So, again, you might want to consider picking your size carefully.
Very soft, warm material. A little tight at the bottom but I love it and the design looks good too. – Cristina V. on Jan 28, 2018 [RES]
This is a great hoodie. The fabric is thick and soft. The cut is perfect, providing ease of movement without being baggy. Miraculously, the arms are long enough! And most importantly, the logo is printed beautifully; crisp, saturated color, perfectly centered. – Mark W. on Jan 30, 2021 [RES]
Omg… This is so high quality. This isnt a bot feedback… I actually love this hoodie and the quality! – Alex R. on May 13, 2020 [RES]
This hoodie is adorable, unique and comfortable. I love that there’s a very slim chance I’ll see someone else wearing the same thing. Now it’s time to save up and buy some more. – Kristen L. on Jul 17, 2019 [RES]
Lightweight Hoodies (Unisex)
Similar to the rest of the hoodies, most reviewers had nothing but good things to say about the lightweight hoodie and the quality of the print. And a few customers mentioned that the colors were vibrant.
I am extremely pleased!! I purchased this sweatshirt for a 16 yo boy and he LOVED it!!! The design is awesome, not cheesy like the ones I saw online. Thank you so much for such a beautiful AND sturdy product! – Sandra E. on Jan 11, 2021 [RES]
My daughter loved this hoodie. The fabric is so soft and warm and an excellent fit. Print on the front is not too prominent and is subtle. Lovely garment. – Lynn P. on Jan 6, 2021 [RES]
Bought this for my husband as a birthday gift, he loves it!.. He’s really particular when it comes to clothes, so this is a definite win. …The design is a little hard to see on the denim colour unless you’re close, but my husband likes that it’s understated – Heide V. on Nov 20, 2020 [RES]
As long as you follow the washing instructions, you won’t have a problem with the print fading or wearing off.
It was birthday gift for my son- he absolutely loves it! Colours are beautiful & fabric- easy to wash and looks still perfect after frequent use for almost 2 months – M8 on Feb 7, 2021 [RES]
Hoodie is soft and the print is just as pictured. We washed it many times already, and it’s still just like new. – Irina on Feb 1, 2021 [RES]
Most reviewers mentioned that this hoodie is comfortable to wear and, like the name of the hoodie suggests, is made of high-quality, lightweight (but strong) fabric. I find that the inside of the hoodie is nice and soft too.
The hoodie is really soft and lightweight and can easily be worn under a jacket without being too bulky. Great design and the charcoal is a great colour. I’d definitely buy another – fiona on Jan 12, 2021 [RES]
This hoodie is perfect for chilly summer nights, fall/spring, and working out.
It’s a very nice sweater. It’s indeed lightweight. Not too thick, nice for spring evenings of a rainy day… – Leanne R. on Apr 21, 2020 [RES]
The hoodie was a gift for my son and he loves it. He loved the design and says it is extremely soft and comfortable. The weight is perfect, not to thick and heavy and not thin. – Catherine S. on Feb 26, 2021 [RES]
However, some reviewers said that the sizing of this hoodie was a little on the small side (slim fit), so you might want to go up a size (check out my tips on how to pick the perfect size).
Love this hoodie! It looks great and is nice and soft, quite lightweight. I would say it runs a bit small, ordered a medium for my fiance but when it arrived it was a good fit on me! Contacted Redbubble and they sorted it out instantly for me, no hassle at all. The large size fits him great! – Rebecca A. on Feb 1, 2021 [RES]
I loved it! The first size I order was a tad too small but I was able to fix my order! I absolutely love the color and the hoodie is so soft! – Haden on Sep 22, 2020 [RES]
Exactly as pictured, perfect fit and comfortable!… what more could you ask for!, will always order from here! They have unique items and great customer service! You have definitely got my repeat business! Thank you Redbubble! – tracey on Mar 6, 2021 [RES]
I have gotten two lightweight hoodies from Redbubble. They both arrived within less than a week which I absolutely loved… Super comfy and I can’t even count how many times I’ve worn mine. The quality is better than a lot of other online stores. I’d recommend using Redbubble to anyone who wants quality clothing with cool prints! – Kadah B. on Apr 23, 2019 [RES]
Zipped Hoodies (Men’s Size)
Personally, Redbubble’s zipped hoodie is my favorite style of hoodie.
The zipped hoodie is soft, warm, and fits very well. And I also love the quality of the print.
Love it! Nice, thick material. It’s very soft and warm. Fits like it should. – Laura M. on Mar 12, 2021 [RES]
My new hoodie came really fast and I am enjoying it! The art looks even better in person and it is a perfect weight to keep me warm and cosy as the colder weather sets in. Great job, Redbubble! – Mary on Dec 29, 2016 [RES]
I already bought several Zipper hoodies because the quality is very good. The fit is good and the material soft inside. Love it – Hof 0. on Oct 12, 2020 [RES]
So far, I’ve never had a problem with the zipper.
Awesome!!! Love it!!! Size and quality is right on!!! Great job on picture… zipper is perfect!!! – Charmaine A. on Feb 9, 2021 [RES]
Was very impressed with how this turned out. I wasn’t sure if it would impress my very opinionated and extremely critical son, but he actually had not a single complaint. – Alicia on Mar 7, 2021 [RES]
Some reviewers mentioned that they found the zipped hoodie runs a bit small (for men). If you like your hoodies baggy, you might want to go up 2 sizes. I know I probably sound like a broken record, but you should really check my tips on how to pick your size before you buy a hoodie.
Very nice quality, but ran a little small. – Jayann on Oct 9, 2017 [RES]
Ordered the XL, but was slightly too small. My other non-RB hoodies are XL and fit just fine. Otherwise, great print quality and good sturdy hoodie. – Aaron S. on Apr 5, 2016 [RES]
But, if you’re a woman, you might find the length of the hoodie and sleeves to be too long (depending on your height, of course).
Excellent hoodie but one size bigger than I expected. Maybe it’s [a men’s] large. – Aabroo on Jan 28, 2021 [RES]
The only thing I can complain about this hoodie is that the print seems to fade (just a tad) around the zipper after washing it many, many times (I wash mine once a week and noticed this issue after about a year).
Bought a very nice zipper hoody. Looks great!.. the print is starting to fade very rapidly along the zipper area. It has been washed 3 times now and things get worse every time. I also bought a printed hoodie without zipper and that stays very nice so far. So it seems that the prints are not so durable in the zipper area. – Erik V. on Jan 19, 2017 [RES]
Washing my hoodies on a delicate cycle and washing it inside out helps quite a bit with the fading problem mentioned above.
Quality of the whole product was great, print was excellent. Washed well, son was very pleased – Marie H. on Jan 4, 2017 [RES]
I ordered Christmas gifts from Rebubble last year and this year! And the t-shirt and hoodies are fabulous! Good quality material for both tshirts and the hoodies that don’t shrink and are so soft and the prints I picked out for them outstanding clear and beautiful colors! I will be buying more in the future for sure – Kristy on Dec 18, 2018 [RES]
Redbubble Hoodies vs Sizing
The way I figure out what size I want to order on Redbubble is by taking my favorite sweater and I lay it flat. Then I measure the distance between the armpits and multiply that by 2. That’s my chest measurement.
To measure the length of the sweater, I measure the distance between the top of the shoulder, right next to the collar, to the bottom of the sweater.
Then, make sure to check the size guide on the product description page (shown under the size selector, where it says “View size guide”).
I’ve ordered about 10 hoodies and sweatshirts and rarely have any problems, and the one time i did have a problem the staff were quick to help, very friendly and extremely helpful. The delivery is always quick and the standard of the clothes is great. The size guide is very helpful and all my hoodies fit perfectly, Cant wait to order my next one. – Shane D. on Jun 26, 2017 [RES]
Overview: Redbubble’s Hoodies Reviewed
So, are Redbubble’s hoodies as good as online reviewers claim they are?
Yes! Redbubble sweaters are not only good. They’re GREAT!
My friends and I have ordered so many items from Redbubble for 14 years, including their sweaters.
My personal rating of Redbubble’s hoodies is 4.5 out of 5 stars. I only took out the 0.5 stars because sizing can be a little tricky for first-time shoppers.
And, worse comes to worst, if your sweater doesn’t fit or you’re just not impressed with the fabric or print of your sweater, it’s easy (and free) to return a Redbubble sweater within 90 days.
I have ordered from this company about 5 times now , always love my stuff! – Tara G. on Aug 9, 2021 [RES]
Great quality and fabric! Looks good and it’s comfy! Will order more clothes in the future! – Andreea M. on Nov 20, 2020 [RES]
I ordered Christmas gifts from Rebubble last year and this year! And the tshirt and goodies are fabulous! Good quality material for both tshirts and the hoodies that don’t shrink and are so soft and the prints I picked out for them outstanding clear and beautiful colors! I will be buying more in the future for sure – Kristy on Dec 18, 2018 [RES]
Excellent!! What can I say, love the designs, the fit of all you clothes is great and the quality is fantastic. Can’t stop buying things that’s the problem! – lucinda on Feb 16, 2021 [RES]
