Thick Knit, Unflattering
This is a substantial knit which I liked. High quality construction & materials. True to size. The only thing I didn't like about it (but significant) is the patterns and colors were very unflattering. I'm 5'5"", 120 lbs and this made me look fat. The horizontal stripes coupled with the light colored plain midsection made for visual widening effects in all the wrong places. It widens and uncurves you. Maybe a DARK belt would help offset this undesirable effect.
Beautiful sweater - unflattering fit
Gorgeous sweater when taken out of the box, but put it on, and unless you are stick straight, the fit will not likely be flattering. I agree with another reviewer, the pattern, striping, and solid beige center section shortens and widens the figure (and makes one look fat). Also, the inside of the pockets tend to pucker at the sides. Unfortunately, I have returned this piece, even though it was a great sale price, and I really wanted to love it.
Beautiful sweater! The color is more of a light tan camel heather which makes it look even richer.I am 5"8" at 130 pounds so it does not make me look fat like the other reviewers. If you want very fitted don't order it. True to size, I ordered a small.I would call it midweight so I know I will get wear out of it in S.E. Texas winters. With the extra 30% off at $48.00 take the chance. It is a steal.

I ordered the sweater a couple of weeks ago at a sale price, and I'm so happy. I finally meet the mail carrier with the package tried the sweater on right away and fell in love with it. I read the reviews about it making you look fat well I have large breast and butt so I kept thinking it's not going to look right,well it looks great on me actually my midsection looks slimmer more defined. I say order it and see how you look everyone is built different. I thought the collar was detachable (I don't own fur real or faux) but it's okay I can live with it it does look nice. I also don't think it should be defined as a coat it's not thick enough but for fall days in Chicago I think it will be perfect and the fur will be appreciated when the temperature drops to about 60 degrees.
