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.
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'm in love with this cardigan! I was originally planning on buying the red, but I ended up purchasing the grey because I knew it would match more items in my closet. I wasn't sure about buying this cardigan after reading the negative comment about the quality, but I have had no issues with this sweater. I normally stay away from the "draped" styled cardigans, but this falls very nice in the front. It's a little short in the back, but since I'm 5'2 I didn't really have to worry about the length. This cardigan runs true to size, so I recommend ordering whatever size you would normally wear. I wore the Glinted Tee in the silver color, which gave the cardigan a bit more style. It's really soft and I feel like you could dress it up or down. This is definitely my favorite cardigan at the moment. I might even go back for the red!

Great Little Cardigan!
I saw this cardigan online many times and past right over it because the online photos didn't spark my interest. But I've been looking for a neutral gray, drapey cardigan that wouldn't overwhelm my 5'2"-5'3" curvy frame and this one caught my eye in the store. I wasn't really in a mood to try anything on but went ahead and tried this one and was really pleased with the look so I bought it on the spot! I chose my usual size large. The sleeves are too long but the material looks okay rolled. The material is also soft. I'm not a fan of itchy fabrics. The weight of the fabric is good, too. It's not too heavy but not too light. Glad I took the chance in the store! :)

Very nice cardigan
I love this cardi-soft, nice drape, flattering, the texture in the front is lovely. It's a bit on the short side on the back (I'm 5'8") but it's ok bc I wear longer tops. I like it that the "flaps" in the front are sturdy enough that if I want more warmth on my chest I can "close" them and they stay in place. As with anything with cashmere in it, pulling at the back or rolling the sleeves will cause it to stretch so if you like your sleeves always up this isn't for you. I'm slim but busty and the S fit perfectly. Haven't washed it yet so not sure how it'll hold up.
I purchased this cardigan as soon as I was able to try it on in a store, which is 2 hours away from where I live! The sweater is true to size and the colors range from a soft white to petal to a teal. I wore this cardigan with a teal cashmere turtleneck sweater and there was no shedding on my other sweater. The texture is very soft and the only issue I had when purchasing was the inconsistency in the length of the sweater within the same size. I tried on two regular XS's and one was longer than the other, with the same thing occurring with the size SM. I ended up purchasing the XS with the shorter length. For reference, I am 5'3" and normally wear an XS on the top, but I am a size 6 on the bottom and with a long cardigan, such as this, I sometimes need to go to a bigger size to accommodate my bottom half. I paid full price for the cardigan and I feel my money was well spent on this purchase!

A beautiful duster!
I had a return to deliver to my local Anthro store, saw this sweater and had to try it on. It is GORGEOUS! The sweater is soft, with colors of cream, pale pink and peach and blue. This can work for fall or spring. The look is elegant and the weave is sooooo soft! I ordered an extra small and it fit perfectly.

Love this sweater. Fits beautifully, drapes gracefully and looks neat and stylish. The texture is soft and rich. Overall a beautiful piece of clothing.
I recently purchased this sweater in the cream color. It is beautiful, the pictures online don't do it justice. It is cropped so it comes up higher in the front. My favorite details are the buttons down the back and the braided detail around the collar. I have pale skin and red hair so the color really compliments my complexion. I wear the sweater with high waisted jeans and booties. I have had quite a few compliments. Definitely worth the price.

Cozy layering piece
The cream colour in this top is lovely. It's cozy, and I like the button detailing down the back-- it gives the sweater something a bit unique. I tried this on in a size XS, since my store was out of S, and it fit fine (I'm 5'4", 116 pounds, 34B). It is a cropped silhouette, as other reviewers have mentioned, so I think it would probably work best as a layering piece with a tee or tank (or a dress) underneath. It fits true to size, if not a bit generous. At the sale price, it was a great deal!

Cropped sweater. Well made.
I tried the M in the store and it fitted well although I'm mostly size 4 for tops, so I'd say it ran a bit small. The neckline was really cute and the buttoned back was just perfect. Really pretty especially the cream color. However be aware it's cropped, the front is even shorter than the back, so it might be too short for taller girls or those with long waist .
This sweater is really pretty and appears well made. It is very soft and warm but not too heavy. I think it fits a bit shorter than it looks in the model picture. The back ends at the small of my back (no butt coverage) and the front hits at the top of the hip. I am 5 ft 4 in (125 lbs) and I got the XS and it fits roomy. The sleeves are generous in size for me and I usually have problems with shirts too tight on my arms. I wish this sweater was longer, but I like it enough to keep it.

A pretty creamy white sweather
My usual size small fit fine. It is a pretty & unique sweater. I am returning though because the ruffled hem on my left side (facing right side in the model pic) does not lay properly. It sticks out in an odd way & does not hang or lay nicely as on the opposite side. It is very noticeable. The model pic looks fine, but mine does not. Going to return.
