Rated 3 out of 5┬áby lovetoshop24hoursday Shapeless
I was drawn to this in the store because I liked the print and somewhat unusal fabric of this cardigan; liked the stripes around the bottom, on the sleeves and the lapel and the flowers are pretty. The material is fairly sheer and very lightweight so I thought it would be nice for the hot summer days. BUT. . this has absolutely no shape whatsoever. I usualy take a medium (36C) in cardis and tops but I was swimming in this one so I tried a small - really not much better and couldnt envision that an extra small would make any difference. I am not one that has to have all my clothes really fitted either, but this has one of the boxiest cuts I have seen in awhile. I wouldn't buy this unless it was about 1/3 the regular price - then I would take it to my tailor and have it cut down. Too bad because the idea is nice, but it turned out wrong.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby SydneyM Pretty Pattern, strange fit
The pattern on this top is so pretty and unique, the colors look just as they do online and i really wanted it to look great on me but it fit really strangely. I thought the fabric would have a bit of stretch but it was more like a slightly stiff blouse fabric but the shape of a boxy cardigan with a stretchy strip down the back and around the neck which made it feel like it was pulling in some places, too loose in others and I couldn't adjust it to feel right. It also made the neckline stick up stiffly on the sides of my neck(maybe it just needs to be steamed?). I tried it open, closed or with just some buttons open but it just made me look really big and shapeless. I think it will be really pretty on someone else. My usual large was the right size (I'm 34 H and it did not gape at the chest when closed) it just didn't fall right on me.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby ViolaLynn Floretum Cardigan
I have wanted this cardigan since I first saw it online. I was a little concerned about the fit of it based on some other reviews, but when it went on sale, I had to buy it. I am so happy that I did! It is a very light, slightly sheer material, so I don't think that it should really be called a cardigan, but it is perfect for layering over simple dresses. It really brightens up an otherwise boring outfit. I think it is somewhat oversized, but the light material flows enough to make up for it. The only concern that I have is that it is a very delicate material, so I will have to be careful not to damage it when washing. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but for those that like to add a little whimsy to their outfits, this is perfect.
