So soft...

The sweater is softer than I expected it to be which was a nice surprise. My bra size is 38D, so I am particular about how they fit around the bust. This sweater hung nicely and the tie around the waist gives it form. I like it so much that I just might buy it.

Too big, the tie at the waist was too bulky. Not suitable for petite women.

Great fun top

I wear a woman's medium and the 2xs worked out perfectly. It was fun top for everyday wear. The tie gives it an extra pop.

Easy piece.

This sweater is a nice basic with a little drama. I wore it with black skinny jeans and booties.

Cute. Nice twist to basic black

I loved this top. The tie added a bit of a change. I like to wear a lot of blacks and grey so it's nice when there is a design element to make it more exciting

Great basic sweater

Once I got used to the large tie on the side, I really enjoyed wearing this. Great basic black sweater. Does run a little big.

Classic easy look

Loved the fit and you could definitely make it adjustable on the knot to be comfortable to you. Just a classic easy look with a little bit of drama. Loved the thin sweater material

Cute sweater

Fit tts. Hard to wear with jackets because of knot. Not working well for this weather.

Tough Tie

The sweater comes with a front tail and a back tail and, as others have mentioned, the fabric is thick which makes the knot thick. I couldn't find a flattering way to tie it.

Tie front

Nice fabric, good for transition time, but the tie on the front is a bit much. It is soo big and bulky. Couldn't wear it

Awkward sweater

Sweater is good quality but the fit is a little awkward. I didn't expect that the tie portion would be soooo long. I didn't wear this.

Ughhh

The sleeves were tight but the body was loose. The tie was way too long. I really wanted to like this sweater but it was a no go. Ended up not wearing it.

Too much fabric to deal with. Felt bulky to wear... especially for my height, 5'3"

Fit larger and more bulky than expected.

Weird

Too much fabric to tie in front and back, I don't think I will even wear it to be honest. Looks a lot different in real life. Also mine was not soft, I am thinking maybe it was cleaned a lot.

Nope. Just nope.

This arrives as a thin sweater with a long tail in front and back. At first I thought it was the wrong item and had to come on here to check. You're supposed to tie the tails on the side, but the material is so thick that the knot that's created is the size of a softball. Very awkward and was returned without wearing.

Love this brand!! What a gem I have found.

The fabric is lighter weight but very cozy and warm. I saw the tag showed "M" and thought it was a mistake, this new brand is well designed for a larger-size not just a bigger size but the design of the top allows the bottom hem to to adjusted to flatter or hide any flaws. I wore the top with jeans and slacks as it was more dressy-casual than business-work wear. I will order again if the winter polar vortex gives us a longer winter ;)

Every day wear and for work.

This is my favorite piece so far! It is warm but not too heavy. The fit is very flattering and forgiving. Would definitely rent this piece again!

Tie is way too big and bulky - does not lay nicely as it does on the model. Looks silly

A Sweater

It fit, mostly, the arms were tight. The tie hit at a weird spot - not cropped but not long enough to cover the top of my jeans. The material was nice but the fit wasn't great.
