Will I ever find the perfect pink hoodie?

If you are going to flame me for wearing hoodies, you may leave now - this way... grin

For anyone else, I've been looking for a lovely pink hoodie for years and never found it. But I am a bit fussy.

I want a dark-ish, rose or muted pink, not bubblegum, baby or shocking pink. However, pinky-purple, orchid-type colour would be OK too. I also want it to be longish, not waist-length like so many are, but hip-length and fitted if possible (though I could alter a baggier one). And I'm a pear-shaped size 14 so teeny tiny skimpy teenagers' ones won't do sad.

It could be classic hoodie/sweatshirt material, or knitted, maybe lambswool/cashmere, and ideally zip-up.

Lastly I don't want writing all over it but I could handle a small/subtle logo.

I'm not asking you to go searching because I have searched and searched online, but just wondered if anyone has something similar or knows of a good brand to suggest.

I have one like this which I love but mine isn't shaped along the bottom.

Ooh replies thanks! These are great, getting close but the ones I like best (Zalando and woolovers) don't unzip down the front, but you've given me some great leads.

Thanks guys, have looked at many hoodies online today! Burgundy and bright pink not quite right but these are helpful because they give me more sites to scour/ebay searches to try.

I do occasionally see the exact one i want and then it always turns out it's in the kids' range... so maybe I am 6 smile
