"These are a favorite of mine for many years. Sizes medium and large both fit me fine at 5'8" 130lbs. I usually wear an 8 or 10 in mail order clothes. Chadwick's boyfriend cardigans are high quality, well made and hold up for years. I've had some for close to a decade, and they still look beautiful and are nowhere near wearing out. When I run them through the washer and dryer, there's minimal shrinkage, if any, and still fit me fine. "

"Bought 2 of these sweaters. I'm a size 8, 126 # and 5'5". These sweaters are made well enough but the sizing seems to run small. Bought medium and they are rather snug all over on me. Usually that size would fit with extra room - not so. I'd recommend you order a size up, they are a cotton blend and do shrink a bit with laundering. Since I wear these mostly unbuttoned so it works okay but if you button them, order up."

"This sweater is comfortable and has a very flattering fit. The cut is five stars. so it's a great go-to sweater when you don't know what to wear but you want to look good. You can wear it over a short or long sleeve shirt fully buttoned, or as a cardigan when needed. I gave it four stars because the buttons are plain plastic. I wouldn't add pearl or shiny buttons, but I do think the quality of the buttons could be better. "

"The sweater is on the 'lighter' side of a medium weight. If I put my hand/arm thru the Pink Sweater, I can see it but the weave is dense enough to provide good coverage. It is great for 'cooler' weather rather than cold. The shape is classic and the quality is such that with gentle washing / air drying, I can see it lasting a good while. Very Happy. I bought 3 of them in different colors"

I think this sweater would be great for those who are curvy - I'm 5'4 - 118 lbs and ordered the small. The material was soft and the length was spot on. Other than the fit I would of kept it"

"I bought 2. One orange and one blue. The orange one a lot wider than the blue one so size is not consistent. Supposed to be machine dryable. However, the ribbing around both sweaters puckered. Neither sweater hangs nicely like on the model. Lightweight which is what I wanted. Ok to wear around the house but wouldn't want to be seen wearing it. Sweaters arrived timely."

It is 100% cotton which is perfect and it is also a perfect weight for summer or fall. I wanted white but settled for navy as the white was sold out."

My only problem with it is that at 5'1, I ordered the petite and it's still so long the it looks like I'm wearing the coat version of this sweater. It falls several inches below the hip and not at the hip as it does on the model, who must be about 7 feet tall. Petite is not truly petite!"

"The longer length makes the sweater so versatile. I have worn it with jeans, and with nice slacks and tops for meetings. I find it more comfortable than a blazer, and it takes little room to pack for travel. The ribbed cuffs are also longer and looser than standard, adding to a dressier appearance. True to size, washes well, I now have four and, depending on colors, may get another!"

I'm 5'6" and about 160 pounds and I got the large because I like things a bit loose. I could probably wear the medium as well, it would just be a bit more figure hugging. I wash the sweater on cold, regular cycle, dry on low heat for about 5 minutes, then air dry the rest of the way. "

"LOVE this cardigan! It is flattering and will be perfect for fall/winter styles. It can be casual with jeans and dressed up with dress pants or skirts. Easy to wash (do not put in dryer). Buying it in 3+ colors!"

"I have several of these sweaters and wear them frequently. I just continue to add to my color repertoire. They seem well made, especially for the price, and what I value most is that they work just as well with jeans as with skirts and dresses. They are very versatile, I like the length and I greatly appreciate the huge selection of colors to choose from. "
