Whilst I am very pleased with my purchase I have to say that the material is a lot thinner than I was expecting. I sized up and was glad as there is not much room to wear anything other than a camisole or sleeveless top under it. Overall the fit is good and the colour as depicted.
Nice shape, but could be softer
I received this in the black colour, which is accurately depicted in the photos. I'm 5'7"/120lbs/32C and ordered a Medium - only because it was the only size. I would say this runs TTS and would have gotten the Small if given the option. It falls nicely + is definitely interesting. I knocked off a star because I don't find it overly soft. I feel like it should have been made in a poly-mix - but I guess the pro is that the cotton will likely hold up better...
I was in love with the photos for this top because of how it looks buttoned...and I love it even more in person. It makes it's own long sleeve shirt once buttoned and a cute cardi when not. The only thing is, when it isn't buttoned it may not be a style for everyone...it doesn't fall like a normal cardi would. It fit perfect in the sleeves, and the top as a whole (I got a large, I'm a 38D/36DD, 32" waist)
The Piece de resistance!
I just purchased this at the FP store and I am in love with it. It's like a piece of artwork that I want to add to my collection and have forever…it's that cool. The color is a stunning rich brick red color that stopped me in my tracks when I spotted it on the rack. I'm not sure if mine is the same bright red shown here, but in person mine is more like dark sienna, much richer, dustier and expensive looking than the red in these photos (I tried to capture it in my pics but still didn't get it). Buy the red - it's incredible! Most of the styling here shows this shirt as something casual you would throw on for the gym, but I see it as a beautiful soft sculpture that deserves to be buttoned up, draped just so on the body and worn to an art opening or other worthy event. The soft fabric and subsequent draping is to die for. This runs big w/drop shoulders - I purchased the XS for my 5'2" form and it's longer than I would like..but I couldn't pass it up because of the rare color and unique design.
Silky cotton comfort
Drapey and oh-so-comfortable. Very roomy but I plan to be able to layer easily for travel so that is a good thing. The "hand" of the cloth is silky and elegant. I highly recommend this cardi.
Effortless and chic
This is the most comfortable and effortless cardigan I have ever owned and its perfect for throwing on before or after hitting the gym but can easily be dressed up with leggings and heals. The material is lightweight and super soft and the hood is the perfect size. For reference I am 5'8 and 125 pounds with an athletic build. Normally I have a hard time finding long sleeve shirts that fit right, I have fairly muscular arms and so the sleeves are often uncomfortably tight while the rest of the shirt fits perfectly, however the sleeves on this cardigan are a little loose which was perfect for me. I ordered a small which fit loosely and was exactly what I was hoping for. I ordered the grey/blue color and its exactly as shown in the pictures.
Could've been cute
I ordered the pink/rose (which in the photo looks almost red). What arrived was a really sad, faded brownish-orange color. The shape is great, the material... Meh. Is not soft but coarse and thin. Definitely will not keep you warm and is more for a breezy day. Sad to say I will not be keeping it. If you must have it, the design is cute just avoid the pink rose color... too risky of a gamble to know what color will arrive. After several FP products I am starting to realize their colors are always off and quality seems to be going down :(
Cute but not for me
I like the style of this cardi. I thought it would be great for work, but the colour just didn't work. Too light. Nuts! If this came in a different colour ... say a darker taupe, a steel blue .... I'd take it. I ordered a large which was a good fit in the arms but could have managed a medium in the body. The material is lightweight but sturdy.
