I bought this in the blue in a size XL and it fits me as shown in the photos on the model. This is even prettier in person. I liked the blue looking at it online and took a chance by ordering it. It is the most gorgeous shade! It's sort of a teal/dark turquoise/royal mix. It's perfect for fall and will be really helpful to cheer me up when the colder, drearier winter weather hits.
Everything about this cardigan is worth the price (and this was a splurge for me). It's soft, comfortable, unique and full of fun details. I love the Swiss dot material with the frayed edges and the little pom-poms scattered throughout. I was worried the front flaps might not be flattering for my pear-shape but somehow it flows nicely on me. I can't say enough good things about this. It's difficult to find beautiful, feminine, well-made pieces in my current XL size so this is one I'm grateful to have!

Beautiful, soft and versatile sweater
This sweater is beautiful, soft and versatile. I got the dark purple is the color is absolutely gorgeous and I can wear it with many different things. The sweater is fairly lightweight, but not sheer and love the ruffle detailing at the bottom. Fits true to size. A great addition to any wardrobe!
I just received this cardigan and I was seriously blown away, it is absolutely stunning! The design and quality are top-notch, really, really beautiful. Since this is a O/S fit, the cardigan fits nicely, not too big or small -- I usually wear an XS and thought it might be too big, this was not an issue at all.
I can definitely say this is one of the top items that I have purchased from Anthropologie and I buy a lot! Thanks Anthro, I hope to see more items like this in the future.

I never would have looked twice at this on the website, but the sales girl was wearing it when I went in today and I told her how amazing it looked on her. She was very petite BTW. She went and got me one to try and although I had no intention of spending $200 on a sweater this day I really had no choice in the matter. It is my best year end purchase (and there were a few). Don't pass on this!

My daughter tried this on in the store and the photos don't do it justice. This is one of those pieces that will get you noticed. Black and beige colors. The design on the back is spectacular. The shorter sleeve is a plus especially for me in a warmer climate. It's a artful cardigan. Structure and fibers were sturdy. A piece of art to wear.
I do not wear wool, so I was delighted to find this cotton sweater in a classic cable knit style. It is soft and cozy and a beautiful creamy white. I would say the sizing is somewhere between true to size and a bit large. I am 5'3, 105 lbs, 32A. I bought the regular XS. It fits appropriately, but is loose (probably a tad looser than it looks on the model). There's plenty of extra room to layer underneath (which is necessary because it is a loose cable knit). I'd say if you want it more fitted and only plan to wear a thin underlayer, size down. If you want it comfy and roomy with the option to vary your under layers (e.g. thin tank vs buttondown/collared shirt as pictured), order your regular size.

Love the no wool!
I have been looking a very long time - years - for a "fisherman" cable sweater without wool so I jumped on this one and I'm glad I did! I love the fabric and love that it's made for a woman's body #curves#. It's not boxy and the neckline doesn't come up too high. It's true to size for me #regular large# and not too cropped and the sleeves are just right. I'm so happy I found this! I did have to put a cami underneath because it was a little too see-through for my taste but that also gives me more "length".

Softest Cable Sweater
I've been looking for a white, cable knit sweater that I could wear without worrying about itching later or getting too warm indoors. This one is wonderful - so soft and it fits perfectly over jeans.
LOVE THIS sweater. The colors are more muted than the photo appears just so you know. However I still love it. I think the xs/sm or the med/lg would fit anyone. The main difference is length. Im 5' 10" and the longer was better for me. You can wear it as the photo shows or more like a vest if you bunch of the fabric. I think the vest way is even cuter. I rarely buy a full price sweater since I live in CA but this is perfect year round for where I live. Dress it up or down. Don't wait for it to go on sale...this one won't make it to the sale rack.

This Vest is Great!
What a fun and colorful vest! The quality is great as it is very soft and drapes quite nicely. The colors are very pretty and almost give a tropical vibe. I have been wearing this vest completely different as shown in the picture online ... I let it drape in loose ruffles instead of pulling it across my shoulders, but the vest is pretty versatile in however you want to wear it. If you are looking for something that will brighten up your wardrobe and add a little more quirky character, this vest is perfect!

Saw this online & just had to go to my local Anthro store to check it out! Tried on my usual size small & it was a done deal - I bought it & it went home with me. Correction: I left the store wearing it! Styling & colors are as they appear in the model pic.
I am tall and slender with a long torso so this pullover tunic/sweater works out perfectly for me. I purchased it in the oxford (darker) color and couldn't be happier. This sweater is bulky & large but hangs well. It can be dressed up or down. If you don't like big collars or chunky sweaters then you probably won't like this. It has a huge collar which can be worn on or off the shoulders. It's very versatile.

Gorgeous and beautifully made, but not for me
This sweater caught my eye in the store because it has a beautiful chunky knit with a statement worthy collar. I tried on the XS which is my typical size in sweaters and the sweater fit well. The upper part of the sweater is flattering. It is roomy but not oversized. The length of the sweater is as shown. The bottom of the sweater proved to be the difficult area as it tapers a bit toward the hips/bottom seam. Due to the taper of the sweater, the stomach area gave the appearance of a belly bulge which I do not have. The backside looked all right and did not add extra bulk but the slight bulge in the front was not flattering so this one did not go home with me.
Happy with the fit; looks like the pictures. I'm petite XS and have a small bust.
One thing I didn't realize is that the front part with the pattern is not lined at all. It is just the thin silky material in front.

Nice cardigan, runs a little bit small, just not special enough for me to buy it.
I liked the sweater more in person than on photo. It is romantic and intricate yet fitting and figure flattering on my 5.7, hourglass figure. I do not know how well it will wear, although sweaters from Anthropologie tend to stay my favorites for years, so i hope i'll enjoy it as much as the other ones. This sweater is both beautiful in cream and brown color. The back is longer, and it makes a nice drape around the curves of my figure. I think it is suitable for the spring weather, but not too thin either. Could be worn with pants, dresses or skirts, a very lovely romantic piece.

This sweater is really beautiful. I ordered the brown color for my mom, and it is lovely (she hasn't opened it or tried it on yet, so I can't comment on fit/size), but it feels soft and looks really great. My only complaint is that the material has acrylic in it, which I was specifically avoiding as I browsed the sweaters on the website. The description lists a lot of the material's contents, but it omits acrylic. That was disappointing -- I probably wouldn't have chosen it as a gift for my mother if I had known.
That said, it does appear to be beautifully made and more attractive in real life than in the photo.
