i almost always take a Large in Anthro jackets and sweaters due to broad shoulders and long arms but the Medium fits me perfectly. It is great as long as I do not plan to layer over a bulky top due to the arm width. I can wear over long sleeves as long as they are lightweight. If you have an athletic build the sleeves might be a bit narrow but probably fine. The fabric is great quality and the knit arm fabric stretches very little but are not overly tight. Every fabric including the fringe used in this cardigan is soft and comfortable. When the wood stove insert is on in the living room I wear it in the family room as it is just like throwing a super soft blanket on. By the time I purchased it, frigid winter weather had set in and I have not worn it outside but it should be versatile going with a variety of outfits. I bought the green which is true to the color on my monitor and I had been looking for a cardigan in this color for months. It is almost a cross between a cardigan and fleece jacket. I highly recommend, especially if you have sensitive skin like me...I cannot have any wool content fabric touching my skin and this is softer than a regular cardigan. I am 5'8" and the length of the medium is perfect.

Perfect perfect perfect!
I absolutely love everything about this sweater. It's actually pretty lightweight, I'm not sure where people are getting the "bulk" from. It's super soft & reaches right below my hip, so I can wear it with leggings. The gray is gorgeous. I went on a limb & ordered online without seeing in store & paid shipping. But I'm so glad I did! If your size is remaining, I highly recommend it!

A MUST HAVE!!!
This sweater caught my eye in store and I couldn't stop thinking about it so I ordered it online. I would have definitely paid full price but was thrilled to see it went on sale! I loved it so much I ended up purchasing in two colors. It is so comfy and is a staple item that goes with anything. I have the green and cream and they are both gorgeous. I wasn't a huge fan of the gray stripes, otherwise I would have bought that one too! THis was true to size, and perhaps just a touch roomy. I ordered my usual size small. I am 5'4" 140 lbs with broad shoulders. The regular size fit me but if you are any shorter that 5'4" I would probably get the petite size.
This sweater is mega cozy and mega cute! I got the burnt orange color and its divine. The design is so fun and so ANTHRO! I ordered an XL because I love an oversized sweater, and I found that it fits like a dream. I think the sleeves are long and the sweater style is a bit oversized...but I'd still say to order TTS unless you want it to be less oversized. Downside for sure is that it sheds...but that's gotta stop eventually, right? I think the design is worth the shedding!

Honest review. Beautifully made. Runs large.
Love the way this sweater is made and how it feels. I bought the black/grey sweater and it's a beautiful combo. It's not too itchy based on other reviews. I mean, if you didn't wear anything under the sweater, then it might be itchy. However, I've had itchier sweaters and would be comfortable in this. I'm a Medium/Large and bought the Large (Size 12 and 5'7"). It is WAY TOO BIG for me and fits like a swing coat. I'm not sure if I exchanged it for the Medium if it would fit better. Looking at the thin model, I don't know how the back of the sweater sits against her back. Not sure if they pinned it from the front. Belted this would look better, but it will have a lot of extra fabric. I want to try the Medium but I'm not sure the back of the sweater will fit against my back. Think I have to return it. If you're thin, the way the sweater will hang on you will be fine. If you are curvy like me, it might make you look bigger. Just gorgeous though. The orange looks nice too. Hope this review helps as I refer to reviews before I purchase.

I was so excited to see this product was on sale (I had been stalking it for a while). I purchased it, it arrived promptly, and when I tried it on it was instant love. The sweater is so cozy and wonderful for cuddling up and watching tv, but also has functional value outside of the house. I love the way the model in the picture paired it with a belt, and many t-shirt color combinations will look great with the color. The sweater does run a little big; I ordered a large and am short enough to have it cover my butt with leggings. Would definitely recommend!
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.

What's not to love about the classic fisherman's sweater? So, hard to find these days but beloved by most people. I also like that it is a cotton fabric and for me TTS. I got the small and am 34B. It fit to perfection. I do wish it came in some soft pastels for the spring and summer.

comfy chunky fisherman's sweater
i bought both the Orange and ivory when they first went on sale. My favorite is the orange-it isn't as bright as shown online and I LOVE the color. I have returned so many orange, salmon, etc. items because they never seem to photograph true to actual color and often show up in some fluorescent color or totally different from what is shown online and not in a good way. This time I was pleasantly surprised that I loved the Orange color magnitudes more than what was shown. It is more a medium pumpkin. I also ordered both M and L as I was unsure what would fit best. I tried on the L first and didn't bother trying on the M as the arms were just long enough in the L with a tiny bit of extra length. I fall between M and L in many styles but in this brand I often seem to opt for the L unless it is really oversized.. I have long arms but do not often have problems with sleeves being too short so if you have extra long arms this may not work, despite the model in the white having sleeves folded up. Not the type of sweater that accentuates your figure which is probably obvious from the photos. I just got mine today, on the coldest day of the winter and have the ivory one on now. It is comfy and not too warm. Plan to layer as shown in the photos as the length is perfect for a layering button down or tee to peeK out from under the bottom and show through the open areas of the knit. I highly recommend.
I love my new sweater. I was eyeing it online and decided to give it a look when I was at the shop yesterday. They only had mediums left in stock and I always wear a L/XL, but it looked roomy. IT IS HUGE! Thank goodness I tried it on because I was planning to order the L online. I am 6 feet tall so I love the way it cinches in at the bottom and helps to define my waist line. The sleeves hit my ape arms just past my elbow and the cowlneck very full. I wrap it around my neck to block out the chill in the morning, fold it over and let it hang a little in front once I'm in the office. The grey color is very pretty too. It is something of a charcoal grey but with lavendar/mauve undertones.
My only concern is that the soft cozy yarns will pill and I'll be picking little balls off this sweater in subsequent wearings.

Very cozy, versatile sweater
Ordered this in the purple color, which is a lovely smoke greyish purple Very soft and have already gotten several compliments. I'm 31 weeks pregnant right now and it fits, so that's a bonus! Hope it washes well.

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.
I'm 5' tall and usually wear a size S or XS sweater, preferably in petite. I tried this first in XSP in both colors and it was too short, even on me, to wear without a layer under it. It hit below the waistband of my jeans, but lifted up to show my belly when I moved my arms. I exchanged for size XS regular, and the overall fit was both larger and longer. It's still on the shorter side, but it hits at mid-hip and doesn't show skin when I move my arms. Except for the sleeves, it's very oversized. and stands away from the body in the back. It works well for my body type - larger on top than on bottom - but if you don't like full sweaters, it may not be for you. The sleeves are quite tight, especially around the shoulder seam, but they do stretch. I'm usually not a fan of lilac, but this color is soft, heathery, and pretty. The 'yellow' looks green, both on the website and in person, but it really is a yellow and gray heather that looks green except upon very close inspection. I got these on sale with an extra % savings so I'm keeping them both. If you're taller, plan to layer this one as it will likely be cropped on you.

Really fresh and nice colour. True to size, fits really well. Look nice with jeans or skirts.

Soft Comfy Sweater
Purchased this sweather in both shades, absolutely love it. It does run a little full. I am between a large and an extra large, and definately only needed this in the large. Even in the large it fits loosley.
It runs slightly shorter in the front and has a slight A-Line bodice which really does not show on the model.
The fabric is very soft and this sweater can be worn now all thru the fall and beyond. Because of the soft colors you can wear this sweater with many diffferent color pants.
I`m very happy with this cardigan. It`s unique, well made and very comfortable. The only slight complaint is that the sleeves look unfinished. I`m going to take it to a seamstress to put the same stitching that`s in the hemline. Luckily the sleeves are long enough to turn them up just slightly to hem them.

Love this jacket/cardigan & highly recommend!
Cityscape appears to be sown in rather than stamped on which can flake off in time. I am 5'11" and would normally take a large in most clothes. I ordered XLG in this which I'm glad I did and would recommend ordering a size up especially if you want to wear layers underneath and have the comfort of it not pulling across the back. I also have long arms and I feel the XLG has longer sleeves and fits better.

Chic Super Fitting Jacket
This boiled wool jacket combined with the city life motif is tailored perfect to celebrate winter ! I bought it online without trying, and was very happy with the fit.
I had my eye on this vest for a long time and was so glad to snap it up once it hit sale. It looks great zipped up all the way, with the collar up high, as well as with the zipper down and the lapels lying open. It is asymmetrical, at the neck and the hem, so I think it is best with a simple neckline. I didn't really find this itchy, but if you are very itch sensitive,this might not be for you. I am usually an XS in Anthro tops and got an XS here. I can wear it with a cotton top or thin sweater underneath.

Versatile & stylish!
Received this today, just in time for the Polar vortex! It is wool, so it's very warm. The neutral color and classic style will go with everything from pants to skirts. At least I will get a lot of use out of this expensive vest! The only problem was that it came with a loose thread on the knit collar & I have a concern about it raveling. Anthropologie needs to step up quality control because this happens from time to time with some of their most expensive garments. The vest runs TTS as I weigh 110 and the xs fit perfectly. I am a petite 5'1 and the length was just right.
