Rated 4 out of 5Â by planetqueen beautiful design
What I love best about this top is the thick, textured fabric. The design is woven, not printed, which elevates it from being a simple sweatshirt to a top that can easily be dressed up or down. In spite of the thickness, the fabric is stretchy, soft and lightweight. The fit is relaxed but not oversized. I tried my usual size S and XS, and kept the S. I'm petite, size 4 top, 32DD, and there was plenty of room in the bust and sleeves for me. The color is described as 'purple motif', but the background fabric is very light and works as a neutral. The back dips a bit low, but not low enough to show your bra. The only complaint I have is that the top is a bit to long for me. You can't tell from the photo, but the hem has lace trim that add about a half inch of length to the top. I'm very petite, so the length probably won't be a problem for average to tall women. I could always tuck it in, or hem it, and because of the lovely design I'm planning to keep it. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the length, if it had come in petite sizes it would have been perfect. Definitely a great deal at the sale price.

I didn't have high hopes for this pullover, but I actually like it and I'm a sucker for anything with a paisley pattern. Especially at the sale price! The color is "purple motif" but the purple is SUCH a light color that it looks more like silver grey and black. I first thought it was too long for my taste and too boxy, but once I tucked it in with a pair of jeans I really liked it. Would be pretty easy to shorten if you wanted to wear it out, like the model shot. Cotton & polyester blends are my favorite...always soft and comfy. Nice rounded neckline which is about an inch lower in the back, but stays on the shoulders nicely and doesn't show your bra straps. There's also a little bit of spandex in the fabric which is nice for the sleeve cuffs. Runs TTS for me. I wouldn't size down unless you have a very tiny frame.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by anthrogirl222 Great fabric Sleeves a little tight
I'm a 38B (barely a B) and ordered a M and L since I tend to be between sizes. I almost kept the L as it arrived first. Then the M arrived and since I'm working to lose 5 lbs and the main issue was slight tightness in the sleeves, towards bottom of sleeves, I kept the M. After telling me the L looked nice, my husband decided it was too boxy after seeing the M on me. The fabric is definitely not purple as other reviewers have stated - to me it's more of black on off white or grayish white. For the sale price it's a steal but if boxier styles don't appeal to you I would pass. The length of the L was longer so I definitely waffled on which size to keep. I only ask my husband's opinion when I can't decide. I prefer a little more length so the perfect fit would have been a combo of features of the M and L. I almost always end up returning the M size but in this case you could size down if between sizes like me. To be honest, either one would have worked fine. I have avg torso length with my long legs giving me a 5 ' 8" height. I am 145 lbs.
