┬áby AnnVeal Perfect cardigan (except for length)
How I wish this cardigan were not cropped! I tried my usual S which fit well (5'6", 133lbs, 32D-28-38). I never wear cropped sweaters because I have a long torso, but this length just looked ludicrous on me. It is a good 2 inches above my jeans waistband. However it would probably look significantly better paired with a dress, so I'll wait/hope for it to go on sale before purchasing. The color is actually more pistachio green in person, less yellow-y or chartreuse than stated/pictured. I did not find it to be itchy.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Tazzy LOVE!!!
I tried this on recently and just love it! The color in my opinion is much prettier in person than what you see on your monitor. It's a true green and not chartreuse. Pleasantly surprised (in a good way) by the color in person. I almost always get a size small (sometimes I even have to get extra small) in all my sweaters and this one runs on the small side. I got it on just fine and could button the buttons at the chest only, sleeves were too snug, and it was short in length. To be completely comfortable and if I want to layer anything underneath it, I'll be purchasing a size medium for sure and I have no doubts it will still be a more fitted look and not sloppy looking. The pearl beading is done exceptionally well. Definitely a high quality item and worth the price they're asking! LOVE the vintage look and details. Anthro needs more of this and not the "look" they've been offering their customers for awhile now. Not into your recent look lately Anthro!!

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby pjaalt cute but fell short of my expectations
I've been wanting this cardi for a long time now, so I was so excited to find it at my local Anthro. While it was cute for the most part, I felt let down. The color was more "pea soup" green to me and didn't look good on my Asian skin tone. Up close, the pearls looked gaudy on me, especially the ones on the fake pockets. The weight of the pearls caused the pockets to droop on me, ruining the overall effect. Otherwise, I really liked the cut on me, especially since I have a short torso. Others will find that this might be too cropped for their taste unless worn over a dress. 5'2", 108 pounds, 32A-27-33, tried on the XS.
