Rated 3 out of 5Â by guernicafrida Not for me
I really wanted a nice and cosy sweater for winter and then this arrived. It looked so lovely in the pictures but for me in person well, not so much. First the sleeves, way too tight. Second the cowl had some kind of lining to stop it from slipping it also felt like I was trapped at the top of the sweater. Third the material this sweater is made of is cheap and it is see through and cold. I sent it back.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tillystar Gorgeous, very long!
I am usually a size S-M in Free People clothing but that is in itself odd as I am 5'10 and while I am quite thin, I usually take M or even L in other brands due to sleeve and hem length. Not so with FP and in part this top - so glad I read reviews and went for a Small (usually choose Medium to be safe). It is a very long jumper even on me and the sleeves are great. Very thing sleeves but stretchy and s shorter person can easily fold them and it'll still look great.
A tiiiiiny bit itchy due to high wool content but much better than I expected and can be worn with a short sleeved Tee underneath. Really love it, it feels so luxurious, kinda Sharon Stone in the beach scene in Basic Instinct feel... Showing my age, I know ;) Prividing it washes well, this will be a staple for years to come.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by gauri Sweater I was looking for
Absolutely gorgeous material. This sweater is not itchy at all, quite soft and snugly. I ordered the grey with red stripes and it is a superb colour combination. Very striking and I can wear the neck in different ways, wear the sweater for casual or formal occasions. Love it. Had no issue with the sleeves.

I got this sweater in xs and I am 5'5" 125 pounds and 36DD. Plenty of room yet not boxy. I love that you can wear the collar so many different ways. I wound up getting all 3 colors and know they will be my go to sweaters this winter along with the Fuzzy Fairisle sweaters.

This sweater looks so cute in the photos! Then I get it and the fit is terrible:( The sleeves are tight, the armhole drop is way too low and the body is 3 times my body width! I look like I'm wearing a garbage bag. Too bad because it really looks amazing on the model! Size down, and only get this is you have small arms... any muscles and you are doomed.

This sweater is so comfy and cozy. I was worried it would be too oversized (and make me look too slouchy) but it is perfect. I did size down - usually wear a medium but got a small. The weave is open, I plan to wear a cami under it. Perfect with skinny jeans and tall boots or booties. I can't wait till it's cold enough in TX to wear it.

This sweater is rt up my alley! I LOVE the open-stitch texture, the over-sized look. This sweater is really well-made, yes it is somewhat see-through but I like that look & hate being hot. Ordered my customary S & it fits as intended, drapey & long. The only thing I wish was different was the seam attaching the cowl neck to the neckline of the sweater--it is very tight & probably won't stretch given the material used. I can only wear this off one shoulder--not both as shown on the model. This being said I do have broad muscular shoulders for my size. (5'5", 130lbs, 34C)
Rated 4 out of 5Â by roxyturtle Runs large everywhere but the arms
If you like your sweaters oversized this is the one for you! The cowl and body of the sweater are boxy and large. The sleeves however run true to size. It's a long sweater, hitting about halfway down my thighs and slightly longer in the back than the front. All of the stripes are sheer, so the top portion is somewhat see-through over the bust.
I'm usually a small in Free People's sweaters. When I first tried this sweater in the small it felt really big, so I tried an x-small. But I found the sleeves way too tight on the x-small. So I'd say stick with your usual size, just be prepared for the body and cowlneck to be very loose and drapey. I'm 5'8", 34D, 34-29-39 for reference.
