Rated 4 out of 5 by Run6014 Fits tighter than expected
Earlier this spring, I bought the Double L Cotton Sweater, Zip-Cardigan Style WITH A HOOD. I gave the sweater a 5 star rating.
Given this positive experience, I decided to buy the same sweater in a different style--i.e., the Double L Cotton Sweater, Zip-Cardigan style WITHOUT A HOOD. The sweater fits more like an XS than the S I ordered. It is short in length and fits tight throughout especially in the arms. The sweater is extremely uncomfortable when zipped all the way up. I feel like I'm being choked!
The 4 star rating may be generous in light of the sizing issue. Perhaps the sweater I was mailed was defective? mislabeled?

Rated 5 out of 5 by SNAGGLETOOTH Just what I was looking for!!
I read many reviews before deciding to buy this cotton cable sweater. Because I like more "give" across my back, I ordered a large, based on others comments. I'm glad I did because this sweater fits just like I prefer and on a snowy spring day in Vermont it was cozy. The length is also better on me, falling at mid-hip.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JustMe22 Too short at the waist
I really like the stand up collar and the material of this sweater, but for me (I'm 5'1") it made me look really pudgy. Not for me. Have to send it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLighted My personal favorite
I wear sweaters everyday fall through spring and this zip front cable cotton is my FAVORITE! Soft, smooth yarn. Cables on front and back. Just enough cuff and hem. And I prefer the zip front style. Mine is red. Definitely ordering another!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BarefootBeachcomer Nice sweater overall
Bought this sweater last year in teal in size XL and it was almost too big. Bought one this year in grey heather in XL and was too small. Had to return it. Reordered in a Women's 1X and it fits okay but had to pay a higher price for the Women's. My size hasn't changed. Just the sweater sizing.
This sweater could be a couple of inches longer to make it warmer--and it would be much nicer with the 2-way zipper or even 1/4 zip. If other colors were available, I'd buy several more. (medium taupe, soft brown heather, green heather) Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TurkanaGirl Excellent for ladies with short torso
Finally, a sweater that does not cling to my hips or bunch up around the waist! I have a short torso and arms (5'7" tall, 138 lbs, 34B) and it can be a real challenge to find a sweater that is short enough but not too tight. This fit the bill. I ordered a Petite Small and a Petite Medium. The PM was just a little long in the waist and sleeve, might have worked if I turned up the cuffs. The PS is perfect. It looks great and I have worn it to work 3 times already - has a nice finished style and yet is totally comfortable and warm. I hope to heaven it does not shrink, and intend to hand wash/dry flat. Thank you, Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LikesQuality10 Comfortable, excellent fit, warm
Really satisfied with this sweater! Bought a neutral color and expect to get a lot of use out of it. I ordered in my normal sweater size and it fits perfectly. I would order more in other colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by pmarch039 comfortable
the sweater is really nicely made, except it is not true to size. Usually wear a petite small, but the sleeves and body were way too short. I then ordered a misses XS and that was still too small. I finally ordered a misses small and that seems to fit fine. Still a little short in the body for a misses size. I am 5' 1'', 107 lb. Also I would like to see more shades of brown in your sweaters.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lomapado love the sweater but sizes have changed
I have several of these sweaters ordered in past years. But this time when I ordered my size, a medium, it is way too small. Not sure if it is labeled wrong but they no longer have the gray in large available. Disappointed since I love the color!
