┬áby Kingjessie55 BEAUTIFUL & Unique...classic Anthro
I picked this up on a whim...I would normally never spend this much on a sweater but I wanted to try it on for the heck of it. I Immediately fell in love. I love everything about this. It is so beautiful and unique. You won't find a sweater like this anywhere but Anthro. It fits true to size but is definately form fitting. This can be dressed up or down easily.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby KitkatTX Love This Cardi!
I spied this cardi in store and fell in love! A few notes:
Fit: I am usually a small and had to purchase a medium in order to accommodate my shoulders and bust. For reference, I am a 36B. The measurements of the medium cardi are as follows:
Bust (armpit to armpit): 17"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 14-1/4"
Sleeve length: 24-1/2"
The sleeves were a bit long on me, so I just cuffed up the ribbed portion at the hem. I chose not to push them up my arm because then the "varsity" stripe wouldn't show as well.
Styling: I found the colors to be as rich and vivid as the photos. The pom-pom trim on the front "bib" and along the bottom edge is a nice dressmaker detail.
Fabric: I found the fiber mix to be very comfortable. I am somewhat fiber sensitive and usually cannot wear merino wool, but there was no itch factor for me in this cardi. I wore it buttoned up with a black cami underneath and was comfortable all day.
The cardi is somewhat sheer, and I felt the need for the cami instead of just a black bra. I had a few pills under the arms after my initial wearing, but nothing that a sweater depiller couldn't handle.
I paired this cardi with the corduroy Painterly Pencil Skirt after seeing it styled this way at my local Anthro. A pair of gray tights, black suede wedges and Anthro's Blurred Blue statement necklace completed my look. I received many compliments. For a more casual vibe, I will pair this cardi with the Split-Plaid Tunic, jeans and boots. Very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby MyFairLady Not as vivid as pictured
I saw this cardi in the catalog paired with a fur collar of some sort. Looked super cute on the model. So the next time I went to my local store I gave it a go. I have to say I was diappointed that the colors looked a little dull when I saw it but it's still cute. I'm 5'7" and 130 lbs with a D bust and though I'm not fat, Im curvy and have a shorter waist. I think this cardi would do better for someone tall and stick straight like the model but it wasn't bad. The fabric wasn't itchy and I'm super picky about my sweaters. Also I think the fabric has the potential to pill but I can't be sure of that.
