Super style meets medium quality (at best)
on May 13, 2015
I really like the style of this top. But, the fabric quality has decreased, the style, and thickness of the fabric somewhat changes based on the color(s)/sizes that you choose. :( . Now that's messed up.
My fav. color this cardigan is created in, -that I purchased 2 of , is the oatmeal, a very uncommon cardigan color. Especially for the price. I bought one small and one medium in it. The small I bought atleast a yr prior to the medium and at that time the fabric was better quality. So, despite my SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) I could handle the small while wearing strapped tops or short sleeves under neath it. With the medium due to the fabric, I can't do that. it's not as light weight or as natural material. I tried once and it wasn't a positive experience. Let's leave it at that.
I also bought this in a small, in black -when I bought my first oatmeal cardigan. So, no issues sensory wise with that one.
However that's okay since I bought the medium to go over long sleeves. I'm currently a size two. I use to be a size 4 and still have some size 4 tops the medium can go over. A small would never fit over them. Which is partly why I think if your a higher top size in a size range you may want to size up. For example, if your a size 6 mostly get a medium not a small. Depending on the fabric of this cardigan and the fabric and style of your long sleeve top to go under it. A size medium may be the only size you'd need (unlike me who needs a medium for my long sleeve tops most of the time. And a smaller size for little to no sleeve top underneath it.)
So the bottom line is
If you want to know what SPD is or more about me check out my sensorysolutions1 dot com blog.
Are there better quality cardigans out there for equal or lesser cost? Mostly No. Are there better ones that are more money. You betcha! But, most aren't as young, stylish, or offer as many color options.
Buy the way, in hot weather or enough heat you WILL be hot in it.
PS. I bought other colors of this cardigan pretty recently too.
