Rated 3 out of 5Â by TaylorKitCat Soft and comfy, but prone to tearing...
This is a nice piece for the Spring and Summer. The lower and upper (dolman-sleeved) part of the shirt is fitted, so if you are broad shouldered and have larger arms I would go with the M/L; I tried on both and the length seemed to be the same for the S/M and M/L, but the M/L gave me more room - albeit not much - in the upper arm area. The M/L hits me in the back approximately 8 inches above the fold of my knee. Where this will "hit" the back of your leg will be contingent on your overall height, and the length of your torso. (As reference I am 5'8", 140 lbs, and normally a M in tops/sweaters.)
This is a LOT thinner than I expected it to be (in online pics it can be so hard to tell). Think of the material weight being that of ribbed opaque tights. (The lower/forearm part of the sweater is double sewn, and therefore thicker).
It is going to be hard to layer UNDER this because the arms are fitted, and also OVER it, because the arms, again, are Dolman-sleeved.
With that written, this is an AWESOME go-to piece for comfort - and style-wise - to wear over a tank with leggings, or sleeveless dress or top, especially for airplane travel (or if you you want to err on the side of caution at the movie theater).
This is hand-washable (no dry cleaning required); that and the fact it's black make it a great travel piece. But this IS going to get holes in it (eventually); the fabric is just too thin for it not to. The best way to mitigate the risk and delay the inevitable will be to hand wash this, or place it in a garment bag on the "hand wash" cycle of your machine.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AussieStah A lovely piece that will be perfect and safe weari
This Cardigan is perfect and has lovely feel to it. Which will be a very easy match for any outfit. For those quick days, this is a must have. The sleeves are fitted perfecting and work well. It keeps them out of dropping into things when eating out. Bonus, as many cardigans can be over sized and ugly to wear. This has a lovely hang at the back.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CaliTrish surprisingly flattering
This is not typically a style I would go for but the sale price got me interested. The drape on this is really great. Very flattering in the back and looks chic and stylish. Fabric is thinner, typical of the Bordeaux branded tops. Went with my normal M.
