Was so happy to find this quality cotton sweater while I was in the U.S. on a chilly weekend. Yes, it does run smallish (I usually take a med/large) and I'm glad I didn't order online or I would have been disappointed. Being able to try it on, I chose the X-large in order to layer and not feel too snug. It is an excellent quality heavy cotton for the price and I've received compliments every time I wear it. I've washed it on gentle several times, laid it flat to dry & am very happy that there is no pilling so far. I'm very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ShoppingMom2 Oddly shaped
I have never seen a sweater with this shape. It flares out at the hips at about a 45-degree angle. This picture they show online conceals the true shape. This might work for someone who is pear-shaped.

Got this in pink, and every time I wear it, it is compliments galore! My only reservation is that the hem sometimes rolls up, but I really am extremely satisfied with this purchase!

I ordered two of these sweaters and am glad I did. They are perfect for those of us who do not like to wear very heavy sweaters all day long. The split-neck is more modest than a deep-v neck and a very pretty detail. I did not put them in the dryer, so they did not shrink. Well done!

This is a lovely, heavy sweater and just what I wanted to wear this winter over my cudleduds. I prefer sweaters to sweatshirts.
Unfortunately the sizing is way off. (this is a problem I run into frequently with LLBean clothing), and the reason I gave it only 4 stars. This sweater was small and tight and the sleeves were about 3" too short. I normally wear a medium but I could have used at least a large in this sweater and the large sizes were gone almost as soon as it was offered. I had to return the two I ordered.

This sweater is very flattering. It hits at the hip, is heavy for a cold winter day and looks nice with jeans or khakis. I read the other reviews and bought a size up. I normally wear a small and bought a medium and it's perfect. There's room for layering a t shirt underneath. I'm ready for another color. Just wish they came in more neutral colors like grey or dark green.

Rated 2 out of 5 by longtimeND sizing difficulties
The sweater was a beautiful color but there were sizing issues. After reading through the reviews, I decided to order both my regular size (medium) and a large due to the number of reviewers who said the sweater ran small. The medium did indeed run very small; it was quite tight across my shoulders and arms. But the large was way too large. It was like the medium was really a small and the large was still a large. Hmmm. Back it will go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by smalltownstyle sizing issues and more
I purchased three sweaters in a medium. The fabric, style and colors I chose are what I hoped for. One I must wear without layers because it is a bit snug. One I will be able to layer because it is a bit big and quite long. Sadly, the other one has a very strong mildew stench and that says enough. I am 5'8" and 124 pounds, hopefully it will help with sizing for those reading this. I still love the sweaters and I will wash the smelly one today. If that doesn't work, I'll send it back.

I just love this sweater! I bought the off white color (large) which I wore with a pair of brown slim ponte knit pants and leather ankle boots. I received a compliment from a nice woman within hours of putting this sweater on. Looks great with a long statement necklace. I am 5'4" and pear shaped. Normally I usually wear medium tops and large pants. I took a chance and ordered 1 size up. This sweater fit me PERFECT. The fitted shape gives me nice defintion and has just the right amount of coverage in the hip area. I ordered another one in indigo IMMEDIATELY, and I plan on ordering several more. Great quality fabric without being bulky. Don't miss this one!
