Rated 3 out of 5Â by 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 4 out of 5Â by 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.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by KmaF Uncertain but I think it's worth keeping.
I love the cut, color, weight and material of this jacket. It's more of a semi structured sweater and you'll need to make sure the size is right. I am 5'5", 36D, 148lbs and the medium was really perfect.
It's unique, takes a couple minutes to place the "collar" - I think some starch would not be inappropriate here - and looks fabulous with everything! I'll be wearing it to parent teacher conferences tonight!
