Rated 3 out of 5┬áby pjaalt not for those without curves
This is such a pretty, unique jacket but unfortunately not for me. I am 5'2", 101 pounds, 32A-25-32. The detailing at the top makes me look completely flat-chested and the rest of it was just large and boxy on me. If you want to minimize a large bust and emphasize your waist, this jacket would look great on you.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Lieutenant Decidely different!
Not your ordinary little jacket, the curved edges, the seaming over the bust (which would seem to emphasize the bust, but on me made my large chest look slimmer), the placement of the pockets under the bust- this jacket is terrific. It's all seasons, day to dinner , can look dressy with a skirt or wear with jeans.A really feminine jacket. I am petite and usually have to hem tops(so that my skirt line looks longer and I appear taller), and I planned to do that with this jacket since it runs long on me, but because of the cutaway in the front, I may just leave it longer since it shows the skirt up to the waist and gives the longer skirt look I need. Looks great open or buttoned. A keeper!

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Alnilam Great buy on sale
I ordered this when it went on sale last week, and I am very happy with it. It's very soft and cozy and has a nice shape. I think it's very versatile and will work over dresses, skirts, or jeans.
That said, if I had bought it at full price I think I would have been very disappointed. This is NOT a $100 sweater! It's 100* cotton and while I do like the softness of it, it also makes it less structured and fitted as it looks on the model. The buttons are also very poorly sewn on and are already coming off--I'll have to take some stitches in them to secure them (it does come with an extra button, which is always appreciated). Similarly, the button holes are not seamed so their edges are unraveling and fraying which looks messy. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase but I'm perplexed by Anthro's price points--sometimes they're spot on and very reasonable, and sometimes they don't seem to match the quality and materials at all.
