Rated 4 out of 5 by CiumanCiuman Soft and cozy casual
I really like this sweater very much. The combination of fibers are soft to the touch and cozy, not too bulky or too thin either. The colors are a pretty combination of blues. The fit works perfectly for my body type. I'm rather short-waisted with a straight build. I have one issue with this sweater. The "reverse" stitches all along the front and back body (bodice) of this sweater get caught on everything and pull. I've had to pull them through to the back a couple of times and ease them across so the sweater doesn't look a tattered mess. I forget my knitting terms, but the sleeves are knitted right side out and the body has the inside out, which I love in appearance. However fun this design concept is, it doesn't make for a very durable garment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shock While this is a very cute sweater, I completely agree with the other reviewers that 1) it runs small; and 2) the threads get caught on everything. I think this is the biggest con, as it makes the sweater delicate. These threads also fray/fuzz/pill a lot.
However, I still really like it. It's warm, and I am pretty sensitive to wool but it's only slightly itchy (I just wear a tank top or shirt underneath). The colors and pattern are great - completely accurate to the photos.
For reference I'm 5'3", 36-28-40, and usually a small in tops for a fitted look, or a medium for a roomier fit. I took a medium in this sweater and it fits similar to the model shot - not fitted through the body but correct fit in the shoulders, with both the length and the sleeves a little short. I have short arms, so if you have longer arms you may find the sleeves very short. The length hits at the top of my hip bones.
Overall, a great classic sweater, though more delicate than you would think!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Landscapechaser The perfect transition sweater
Warm enough for in-between seasons, light, comfortable, travels well and it is well constructed. Size up, this sweater does not come big/large as many other anthro sweaters. For reference, Im 5.3, 140lbs (mainly at bottom) and M works perfectly, on the fitted side. Normally I buy S for Anthro Sweaters.
