Cool cotton, but very oversized
I wear an 18/20 in most things, but the 14/16 in this was still very large on me. I know it is meant to be oversized, so be aware. I got the matching sequin accent tanks that are striped and wore these cardis over them as a layering piece. I love them!

I'm also an apple-shaped girl like a previous reviewer, but I actually like the way these sweaters fit me. I tend to wear them open, however, rather than buttoning the front and I love how light and airy they feel. I bought both colors plus the striped one and they'll be great for spring/early summer.

Very up to date. Great purchase.
I just loved the modern look and blue color. Perfect for jeans or to dress up. Has a very slimming effect.

Not for the Apple!
I felt bad providing such a low rating, but let me be clear that I think the fabric was soft and light. However, the over all fit was horrible for my shape. I'm not sure how they made this look attractive on the model!
My guess is that this would look best on a woman with a larger bust to force the rather boxy dolman shape to actually have more form. For me personally, it made me look boxier than I am.
I've purchased some of Lane Bryant's other more "boxy" type sweaters and cardigans and been able to make them work; this is the first that has been an outright failure for me.
If you have a small bust (or smaller in proportion to the rest of you), I don't recommend this cardigan..
