Â by GeoInCalifornia Careless Hangers Make Holes!
I purchased this Cardi in orange to replace the Amrita Cardi in orange by Tiny that I missed out on. some of the White Cardi's in the store had pulls and holes across the back. Probably caused by careless hangers. However, the orange versions were fine. I have not snagged mine once. But I didn't wear a bracelet since the cuffs are tight. IRL this Cardi is not as PINK as shown on my monitor.
SIZE: I'm almost always a Small in Cardigans. I tried on size Small and XSmall. I'm 5'5" tall, 130 lbs, 34D, 35-28-36. Narrow across shoulders with short arms.
FIT: Runs Large. The Small was too big through the shoulders. The XSmall fit best without the arms feeling tight. The length in back and to the side is several inches above my knees. Since my hips are small, this is slendering. For those with large hips or backside, this Cardi may not drape smoothly in back. The arm length is long, but the cuffs fold easily.
FABRIC: Thin good quality Rayon/Cotton blend. Handwash or Dry Clean. Needs initial pressing. Love the contrasting fabrics. Especially the placket ruffle with sheer vertical stripes.
I like this Cardi, but I wish they would have kept with the same back detail as the Amrita Cardi that I have in Turquoise and Brown. The gathered band makes it appear fitted.
Recommended. An excellent Summer weight Cardi at this price. Size down if small shoulders. Length may not work for everyone. Lose those careless metal hangers in your closet.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by mahkate wanted to love it but...
I found the lengths on this odd... the sleeves were great, super long just like I like (nothing worse than an oddly short sleeve) but lengths of the overall piece seemed to hit all wrong. From the photos I expected the back to come almost to the knee and the front to hit well below waist, but it was a lot shorter. the front edges hit at the waist with almost no drop. It's almost like the sleeves are made for a very tall person and the rest of it for a very petite person?? I wanted to love it but it just looked stange on me.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Finsmom So cute, but ...
This piece is great for layering but is so delicate. It snags easily. I wore it twice and ripped a hole in the eyelet part of the sweater. Bottom line - very cute but you can't wear it a lot if you want it to last.
