WARNING: ITEM NOT AS PICTURED!!
on May 4, 2013
I'm a big fan of drape sweaters and cardigans, but this one was the most terrible I've ever tried on:
FIT: The fit is completely off, unlike the photo, the hanger (the area where the shoulder meets the sleeve) is completely off, so if you wear the item as you should, the inner edge (that should rest against your neck slightly) is wayyy too far away, to the point where the shoulder and the inner edge of the material are only about 1-1.5 inches apart. Check out the photo for the item.. it's MUCH larger in the photo. Also, because of this weird fit, the sleeves don't meet up under the arm pit as pictured (and as they should)... instead ending much sooner. Again, if you wear the sweater as you should with the hanger on your shoulder, viewers can literally see your arm pits. It's weird and gross. If you try to pull the arm pit area up to where it should be, the top bunches up and doesn't fit correctly, and the sleeves are too short. This shirt is a nightmare.
SIZING: I normally wear an XS in shirts, and sometimes get a S if it's a sweater or item I'll be wearing OVER something else. In this case, I checked the reviews and noticed a lot of people were saying it was small, so I bought a MEDIUM...which fit like an XXS. I had to check to make sure, and yes, all tags and stickers say medium. This is just not right. Sizing is way off, the sleeves are way too tight and not long enough. (No, I don't have abnormally long arms).
COLOR: I ordered the grey, and it is definitely not as dark as pictured, definitely lighter than expected.
OVERALL: I have no idea what the designers/manufacturers were thinking when putting this together. SAVE YOUR MONEY. Buy something else!!
