Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Brandeis One for the petite, slender ladies.
The good: this sweater is cute, the fabric is soft, and it can be dressed up or down with necklaces, scarves, etc. I'm totally in love with how it falls on me, and I can't wait to layer long sleeved undershirts with it.
The bad: this is probably best for those of us who are flat-chested and rather lacking in curves. The banding on the hem and the cut of the sleeves and collar might exaggerate curves or generous bosoms in unflattering ways. So, if you've been blessed by the breast fairy, it's probably best to try this one out before investing.
However, if you're woefully flat up top and always on the look out for that drapey sweater that doesn't swallow you whole, this just might be it! It really showcases what are often a petite, slim girl's most elegant assets: her wrists and neck.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby MyFairLady Felt like Big Bird
I loved the color that caught my eye in the kelly green of this sweater and thought I'd try it on. Noticed the sleeves were full but figured the rest would be fairly fitted. I'm not into boxy things since I'm curvy and can't pull it off all the time. This was not the sweater for me. Although I'm not big by any means (130 lbs 5'6") I am short waisted and because all my height is in my legs the arms looked sadly ridiculous. Sorta flying squirrel meets Big Bird. I think if you are super tall and skinny it might work but even the model in the picture looks a little overwhelmed by the sleeves.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby bikebetty sweet & mod
i love this sweater. it has kind of a mod feel, but not too much.
i wasn't bothered by the wide sleeves-- the fabric is very fine so the sleeves don't feel unmanageable at all. i bought my usual xs and the length and fit are great-- not to fitted, not too boxy. can't wait to pear with a pencil skirt & pumps!
