Urkye Review: Twister shirt

For the third item of my most recent Urkye order, I decided to get something a bit more casual and went for the recently-released Twister shirt in morski (sea).

List Price: 75zl ($23.03)
Material: 92% cotton, 8% elastane
Size: 36oo/ooo

Twister 36oo/ooo


It was a little hard to get the color of the shirt to show up in pictures - the real color is a tad lighter/brighter than is shown. Very bright and cheerful! The twist embellishment in the back is a fun and interesting touch.

Although the shape is somewhat similar, the material of the Twister is thinner and stretchier than the older Francuski shirts, which is a good thing for the upcoming summer months. Sizewise, I found that the shirt seemed to run a little big, so those who are on the outer edges (or even outside) of Urkye's size chart may still find that this shirt works well for them. You can also see that the shirt is more than long enough for me, so those who are taller and/or have longer torsos should be safe with this shirt.

Overall, I was quite sad to hear that the Francuski shirts (my favorite from Urkye so far) won't be restocked, but the Twister is another solid offering (coming also in red, beige, and black) and a great Spring shirt. Let's Twist! ;) (couldn't resist)

  2. I love the look of this! I was a little worried when I saw the open backs on some of the shirts that it would expose the band of the bra. Pleased to see this is not the case. The color and design is so flattering and beautiful you too. :)

  3. This looks great on you! I may have to add this to my upcoming Urkye order. I usually stick to dresses when ordering from overseas, as I'm relatively happy with stretchy tops from Target and GAP, but I have to say, I'm quite tempted by this one after seeing your review. Thanks for posting it!

  4. This looks awesome! Makes me wish I'd bought more than just the Mala! Can I ask what bra you're wearing underneath? It's giving a great shape.

    1. Thanks! :D I'm wearing an (altered) Freya Deco - I generally end up wearing it for the reviews I do since it gives the smoothest shape and pretty much works under everything :)

  5. I am looking at all the Urkye reviews, and while I like how there is enough space for the bust, I absolutely hate now long all the hemlines are on their shirts and tees. that totally turns me off, as I don't like the look in general, plus I have a short torso that will not be flattered by this cut at all. Even for average torsos, it would be a more flattering and balanced look if the hemline was at least 10 - 20 cm shorter.

    1. Hm, this is a good point! If it's helpful, I'm only 5'4, fairly short-torsoed, and I think I could've gotten away with a size smaller here (34oo/ooo) - the smaller size might look less long on me. I do prefer longer-cut shirts in general, though!

  6. Perhaps the shirts look long because the bloggers modeling them are short? Just my guess. At 5'10," I appreciate a longer cut at times. In fact, I hesitate to order the cute pocket dress I see on all these blogs because most of the women wearing them look quite short and the dress still only falls to mid-thigh.
