The colour of this is so pretty , more pink than red. It is very soft and thin enough to not feel bulky at all. The hood lays very flat, I would never actually wear it up I don't think so it's nice that you hardly notice it. This top runs quite large and loose, I am usually S or even M but in this I bought the XS and it is still loose and comfortable . It is longer as well, it covers my bum, I am 5'2". I love it for casual wear.
