I bought this to replace my beloved sweater , vest that had succumbed to moths (or something that caused it to look like Swiss cheese). I'm not a huge cashmere fan...it tends to have a fishy odor I don't like but this item looked so cute online that I couldn't resist. I ordered a size up thinking the fit would be big and cozy, but it was actually more form-fitting than expected. The style of it was just as nice as it appeared on this site. I rated this item as I did because it's quite coarse-feeling. It's not remotely as soft as my few other cashmere/cashmere blend items. I find it hard to believe this has any cashmere in it at all. Fortunately, I got it at a deep discount so I'll be keeping it.
For reference: I'm nearly 5'5, 36DD with an apple figure and normally wear sz 10-12/L. I ordered an XL. This sweater fit me perfectly in the shoulder, loose everywhere else and the length hit at mid-thigh.

So Much Better In Person!
The picture does NOT do this vest justice! I decided to give it a try for something comfy to wear on chilly fall days and I'm glad I did! I love it! It's definitely longer than it looks on the model and you can't see the cute pockets from this view. Also, the collar is wider so it rolls and isn't as open as it looks. I recommend buying this cozy vest and trying it for yourself!
