I really like the color of this sweater with the silver threading throughout. It makes the sweater a little more dressier. It hung straight down on me, no bulkiness anywhere. A belt will give it a little more polished look. I do agree though that is seemed a little big for the size I got, a medium. The neckline in the photo looks a little more like a V neckline; on me it was more U shaped. I do like the shorter sleeves that are about elbow length. It's wearable for more than one season.
There's a bit more sparkle than I expected, but I LOVE that:) The arms are a little snug for me, but they may loosen up with wear. I have muscular arms, so if your arms are average or smaller you shouldn't have any problem. The material is a little rough, but tolerable, and understandable given the design. Body is slightly on the boxy side, but appearance seems more like 'loose fitting". I'm 5'5", aprox.165#, very proportionate, 36C. Got this in MEDIUM. Sweater length is a little below my hips and is slenderizing for my body type, yeah lol! Overall, I am very pleased with this item.
I love this sweater - I'm really into the crocheted, oversized and loose look! I'm 5'7", 125 lbs and I ordered the XS - it fits great! I've worn it several times, and unlike the other reviewer, I have had no problems with snagging - and I've even put it in the washer in a meshed, zippered bag and then hung it up to dry - still looks great! I wear it with a tank underneath and with jeans - awesome - and the price is a deal!!!
I would recommend this sweater only if you down-sized 2 or more sizes. I followed the recommendation to down-size, I wear a 6 and got an XS.... I swam in it. It has very little body to the weave and just hangs. It is also very boxy and is tight in the sleeves. The weave is beautiful and I wished it would have worked for me. Unfortunately it is being returned. One must also have the right cami or tank to wear under it and a nude bra. It is that see threw. If you like things loose and boxy and have slender arms go for it, but not for me.
This is a great sweater. I wore it for the first time and received so many compliments. It does snag easily so you are going to have to be very careful. The silver threads in the weave are actually the strings that tend to snag. Also, because it is a knit, I ordered a medium although I am usually a small. I made a mistake and should have ordered the small which I still think I would of had plenty of room. I think this might run big.
