Casual wrap cardigan
Versatile but Not my Style
This is a great looking cardigan except that it is really short in the back. With the front nearly to my knees, the back is about at my waist. That just doesn't work for me. If the back was longer then the cardigan would be a great layering piece. It's going back.

I ordered two of these and let me tell you....... they don't look half as good in person as these pictures present.
Plus the back portion is sooooo short it makes ones butt look huge! I'm sending them back.

This really is a lovely piece! I'm a bit surprised at some of the low reviews on this. It is flattering over the stomach and hips and does not seem to make one wider, as another review suggested. It is also very flattering to the shoulders and upper arms, making them appear slimmer. The front of this wrap is longer than the back, but I don't find it to be too short at all; it falls to my lower waist. This cardigan wrap drapes nicely in the front and is comfortable throughout the day. I love to pair this with any LB cami, jeans, and ballet flats.
The only reason for 4 starts and not 5, is because the color "Aquaria" is quite different in person than what is featured online. Online the color "Aquaria" looks to be a brighter turquoise, but it's more of a darker jade green, which I was not expecting. I have never had my computer monitor not represent colors correctly, so I believe it's not an accurate photo of the color. Overall, I truly like this wrap and would buy more colors.So

If you want to look wide, order this... I had mixed feelings about ordering this as cardigans that lay this way rarely work out for me, but I saw it on a mannequin at a store and it was styled very well. I took a chance and ordered one online. I was very disappointed when I received it and tried it on. The cut of the front made me look wider than I already am. The point (at least for me) of wearing a cardigan like this is to have a slimming effect. Also, the back of this cardigan is very high. I t hit me right around my waist and I am short waisted. It was kind of like one of those high low skirts, but it was high in the back and low in the front and it is a cardigan (of course). The back also hangs loosely and kind of protrudes outward from the body. This piece is not very flattering at all.
