Rated 2 out of 5Â by Anthrolover15 Love the look-Bad fit
The first thing that caught my eye about this cardigan is the amazing colors! When I went to try it on at my local anthro store I was hoping it was going to look good, however it did not. I am usually a medium in tops and the medium fit too tight and rode up in the back and the large fit too loosely. I am 5'8 and 145lbs so I usually do not find myself stuck in the middle of two sizes like that but apparently this beautiful cardigan was not meant to be.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lieutenant how to make it fit better
I loved the colors and almost did not buy it based on the reviews. Then I tried it on and figured out the reason it rides up in the back is because the lapels pull the front down when it's worn open like that. What I did was have my tailor put 2 snaps in on the collar, so that now it closes, like an off center closure. It keeps the sweater straight and the back no longer rides up. You don't need to wear anything under it if you keep it closed, and you don't see the snaps (they are small and silver and are sewn on the gray part of the collar). If you wear it open with something underneath, just pull the back down a little, it will stay. As for the tight sleeves, this is cotton and has a huge amount of stretch, gently stretch out the sleeves and it will be fine. A lovely sweater, and it will go with olive green, tan, gray and winter white.

Like the second reviewer, I also found this sweater's sizing to be problematic. I am petite - size 0/2, 5'2", short waisted, 34-26-25 and usually wear an XS. I tried this in an XS, but it hung oddly. The S hung better, but while I LOVE the colors and concept of this sweater, I still wasn't sure about the fit. I didn't love how it draped, and it and seemed to pooch out in back. I actually bought it and took it home with me (I loved it paired with the Halcyon top by Bordeaux) to try it on with some different things. Upon comparing it with another open sweater I have, I decided that it is just too short, making it hang too oddly in back. I don't love it for the price. I'm going to return it and will reconsider if it goes on sale.
