I LOVED this sweater. I am 5'2", 115 lbs, 34B, and the XS was a perfect fit. This sweater is 100% cotton, soft, and well constructed. No itch factor at all! The embroidery details on the top are adorable and really make the stripes pop. The knit is fairly lightweight. The sleeves are a true 3/4 length, which is difficult to tell in the model photo. This is well worth full price. This is a timeless, classic piece that you could keep for years. A total winner from Tabitha!

The moment I walked into the Anthropologie, this sweater caught my eye. When I first saw the price tag, I was taken aback by such a steep price. I walked away from it, only to return to it later. I decided that sometimes you have to splurge if it's something that you truly love. The sweater fits TTS and the moss green flowers that line the collar are absolutely gorgeous and really add to the sweater. I would definitely reccomend this sweater!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cbrand This is why I shop at Anthro
My initial impression was that there was NO WAY that I was going to pay $128 for a cotton cardigan sweater. However, after reading all the reviews, I went to try it on and now I see what all the fuss is about.
This sweater is well made. It feels special. It wears as a neutral over lots of different outfits. The stripes are visually flattering (as is the black border) and I love how the flowers draw the eye up to my face. In a nut shell, Anthro nailed this one. This cardigan is timeless and worth every penny.
As for sizing.... I'm 5'4" and a size 14 with a 36D chest. The L in this sweater fits well. In an odd turn of events, I think this cardigan actually looks better on the "average" person than it does on the Caucasian model. There is something odd about the way the sweater hangs on her in that picture. Perhaps it is that she is very broad shouldered. To get a true sense of the piece, look at the picture of the Asian model. The sweater wears the way you see it on her. In fact, even full-figured... woman of a certain age that I am, I was able to pull off belting this cardigan over a skirt/skirt combo.
This is my new favorite article of clothing!
