Rated 5 out of 5Â by emster terrific design
I am 32AA-28-38, 5â4â. I usually am a 2 or 4 in number-sized tops, or a Small in alpha-sized. I took a size Small in this sweater, and found it to run true-to-size. The fit is slightly boxy, but the cross back gives subtle-yet-flattering waist definition. Because the sleeves are not set-in, the fit is quite forgiving for varying shoulder widths.
The garment measurements of the Small (taken unstretched) are approximately 34â around the bust and 36â around the hem (if the line front hem continued straight around the back; since the back hem sweeps up it can accommodate a variety of hip and rear shapes). The front length from the high point of the shoulder to the hem is 23â, and the back length from the top of the neckband to the bottom of the center crisscross is 15.5.â The length of the sleeve, from the neck edge to the hem, is 20.5â and the sleeve bells from 14â around the bicep to 16.5â around the hem.
The wool blend is thick but soft, and doesnât feel itchy to me at all. I think the color is slightly greener than the product shot; itâs a lovely neutral sage. The cross back is comfortable and looks amazing with the cables continuing around the garment â Iâm glad to see Anthropologie is bringing back these unique details again.

I love this sweater. I was unsure at first about the bell sleeves as I am petite and they do overwhelm me a bit. However it does help that they are 3/4 sleeves. The criss cross back is very flattering. This will be very cozy to wear in the winter months. I feel it would look best with jeans. I also love the color. Another great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by lexafromcanada Great detail
Is there anything better than having your order from Anthropologie arrive in the mail? This is why I love Anthro clothing - everything has such interesting detail! The cross in the back is really flattering and gives a nice shape from behind. Material is super soft and cosy and the colour green is exactly as seen online - very pretty sagey green with tiny flecks of oatmeal and rust. Fits tts. The only slight hesitation I have is the bell of the sleeves - in person, they seem much wider than they appear online. The width of the bottom of the sleeve (in a M) was almost 9.5 inches. I am happy with the sweater overall and anticipate wearing it often, but I do wish the sleeves were a tiny bit more narrow.
