Rated 5 out of 5 by WindowShoppingPro Perfect Relaxed Sweater
I actually like that this sweater is more of a relaxed style. The description is a little misleading as the sleeve is really a drop sleeve which makes it look huge when you hold it up, but the sleeve seam drops below the shoulder (zoom in on the picture). Yes, it does run large; I usually wear a medium at LLBean and I ordered a small based on the reviews and it still is a relaxed fit with a longer length, making it perfect to wear over slim pants/jeans. I bought the cotton cashmere sweaters that were offered last year and I love them, so I was hoping that they would bring them back this year in the same or new styles. I am pleased with this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GetOutGirl Huge, really, really huge!
Other reviewers have commented that this sweater is big and they weren't kidding! I'm around 5'4" and about 130# and size small was ridiculously too big. I'd try an extra small if it were available (it's not) but, in addition to being way too wide, this sweater was longer than expected and I'm concerned that even in an extra small the length might be more than I want.
Other than the size this sweater seems nice. Not quite as soft as I'd hoped for considering it's a cashmere blend but still nice. So, unless you need an extra small, give it a try. But definitely order a size down from what you think you need.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sully3 OVERSIZED is right
I loved the weight and feel of this sweater but it was HUGE! It know the description said it was over sized so I ordered a medium instead of my normal large. But even though I ordered one size down, it swam on me. I order from L.L.Bean a lot and usually have no trouble with sizing but this was much bigger than other things I have ordered. I had to send it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mnmom55 Great sweater
I ordered this sweater one size down as many reviewers suggested. It fits great and is so soft and comfy! I can't wait to wear it with jeans for a cute, casual look. I'm 5' 2" tall and both the length and sleeves are perfect on me. I ended up buying it in both a solid and in the colorblock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by noelani6696 Very soft and very roomy
This sweater is very soft and feels great. I would warn that it is VERY large. I bought a small and was worried that it might be snug because I am very busty, but the small is very big. I like it because it's roomy and I could easily put a dress shirt under it so it's okay, but if you're looking for true to size fit I'd go with a size smaller. I could've bought an extra small and still had room. Still very happy with the sweater

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoAZ Comfortable, Soft, Huge
This sweater is a very soft, comfortable, casual light sweater, perfect for Fall/Winter in central AZ. It is designed to be oversized but in actual fact is huge. I normally wear an XL in LL Bean shirts. The XL in this sweater was ridiculously large and baggy everywhere. The hem came well down my thighs and the sleeves came down to my knuckles (for reference I'm 5' 2, 180 and short waisted). I returned it and took a chance by ordering it in Medium. The Medium fits beautifully and has quickly become a favorite. I would recommend buying down 2 sizes and be aware it will never be a fitted dressy sweater.

This is a beautiful sweater and so soft!! I love the three quarter length sleeves. I bought the two tone blue and it is really nice, I would buy another if there was a color other than grey. I can not wear grey at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spease comfotable and relaxed
I like that this is a big sweater with a relaxed fit. This is exactly what I wanted for relaxed casual days. I have gained some temporary weight recently and this style means I can relax about my muffin top too! lol I am very happy with this purchase and have already started to wear this on crisp autumn days. great with jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by peggyjean Love this sweater
This sweater is oversized, but that is what makes it so trendy.
I usually wear a small in all Beanie sweaters but I bought the Xsmall
and I love it. You won't be dissappointed unless you want a tight fitting sweater.

This is THE sweater I've been looking for! Yes, it's oversized, it is supposed to be as the description & photo reflect. I would love to have it in cream and black also.
