Rated 4 out of 5 by rocky911 Go up a size!
Great sweater. Comfortable and warm, but short. I am 5'7, 125lb and I bought the small, like I most always do. While I kept the small (mostly because it was backordered and I didn't want to wait anymore) I wish I got the medium. The sweater is very short, but still wearable. I would advise going up a size. Other than that, great purchase and well worth the money!!

I am in love. This sweater--warm and technically bulky though it may be--is flattering!! The cables down the arms and body are slimming. The weight is so lovely--it's a bit heavy but only in a "this is a substantial sweater" sort of way. Worth every penny--and I do not normally shell out these many clams for a sweater. I may even buy another in the other color! It is my very favorite sweater, and for a northern MN girl, that is about the highest compliment I can give. I wear a 10-12 on top, and the large fits just like on the model. I feel I can wear this to church, to work, with jeans, or heck, even with some cozy flannel pants for chalet-chic at home. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosebud02 Great Quality
I always wanted a fisherman sweater but they always seem to be made of wool. This is a great quality cotton sweater. It's heavier than I expected. Per the reviews I ordered a XL instead of my regular L, which I think was a good idea, but because of that the sleeves are longer and I feel like it gives me a bit of a masculine look? I have plenty of room for a button down shirt underneath. Maybe I'll feel better if I get the sleeves shortened. :)

I rarely write reviews, but this sweater is excellent! The quality is superb and I love the comfort. I am normally a size 8 and I bought a medium and its not bulky like most sweaters. Some sweaters create a bulge at the belly, but this one does not. It's great, thanks for a quality sweater, well worth every penny. I hope to have this for years to come!

I never write reviews on items I buy, but I absolutely love this sweater! It is so perfect. Not bulky, but still warm and great quality fabric. It is definitely more fitted for an Irish-style sweater. I normally wear a 4-6 and purchased a medium which was perfect. It is surprisingly quite flattering and very versatile. A much needed basic for any wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewEnglandGirl73 The Feminine Fisherman
This is a gorgeous cotton fisherman's sweater, with a slimmer, more feminine fit. I bought the cream color & it's perfect, exactly what I had I mind. The cotton is a nice heavy weight & very soft. Sizing - I ordered a "small" sine that is typically my size in most sweaters. The fit was perfect - TOO perfect! There would definitely be no room for layering and the small size didn't have the slightly relaxed, slouchy look I wanted. SO I instead ordered a "medium" and it's exactly right - still slim and feminine in fit, just a tad bit more slouchy (which I love with skinny jeans and tall boots). I'm almost 5'4", 123-ish pounds, 34C. Great buy :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mom2HKM To that big...
The elusive cotton fisherman sweater at last! I love the style, but after reading the reviews, I ordered up a size. The sweater I received is huge! It looks like I'm wearing a mens sweater. I'm 5'1" and about 150 lbs (just had a baby) so I'm definitely chubby. I've been wearing size large, so I thought an XL would fit the bill- not so. I'm going to return this for the large and hope it works. It's really cute with a chambray shirt under it!

I knew I'd love this sweater when I saw it online. The main question was which size to order. I called customer service for garment's chest measurements. I think this style sweater should have some slight ease in he body, I didn't want it form fitting, like I wear cotton turtlenecks, nor did I want it as loose as a weekend sweatshirt. So while I wear XS and 0 in clothes,I'm slender at 5'1" and 104 lbs,I got a small. It fits as I wanted it to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lanne A Fisherman Sweater That Fits!
Before purchasing, I carefully read and pondered the posted reviews. They contained very candid and explicit comments, which I took to heart. I am 5' 1", 105 pounds and followed the recommendations for sizing. Though I normally purchase petite sized clothing, the sweater fits perfectly. I thought perhaps the sleeves might be too long, but that is not the case. To echo another reviewer, I like that it is made of cotton and not wool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SanDiegoSusan Warm and Snuggly
My sweater just arrived and, as other reviewers said, it runs small. I wear an XS in everything and considered returning this for a larger size, but changed my mind. It's so warm, snuggly, flattering, well-made, and comfortable, even though I will have to be very careful choosing a shirt to wear under it. Whatever it is will need to be very lightweight, or I may opt to wear it with just a camisole. After looking at the two photos on the website, I like the look of just the sweater without a shirt showing. At any rate, I'm keeping my XS and can't wait to wear it. It's beautiful and I know I'll enjoy it for a long time. If you prefer a looser fit, you may want to order up a size or two.
