I tried this sweater because another reviewer said it would work for a larger bust/thinner torso woman. The fit was awful. The XS was very baggy overall and the armholes were large and loose. The entire front just hung weirdly and looked strange from every angle. The model must have several clothespins pinning back all that fabric - maybe why there is no rear or side view. I don't know who this would fit but I would suggest sizing down if you want to try it.

Odd fit--can't quite describe it but just not completely flattering. Tried it on 3 times because I wanted to like it and I like Lilla P generally. I was also worried because the fabric seemed like it would not hold up. Will be returning it.

I really wanted to like this sweater and bought it in the charcoal grey & newport blue. Both were returned because the ruched fit was just weird on me. The sweater is nicely made and of medium weight. I agree with other reviewers that the slightly heathered blue was less optimal than a solid blue, but pretty nonetheless. The sizing seems true to fit (I bought Smalls and usually am a 2 or 4, 125 lbs & 5'7"), but the ruching was a bit gappy up top on me despite an attractive slim fit at the bottom. This might be better for someone with a slightly larger bust who wishes to emphasize that. The v-neck was also a bit low for my taste even with a cami.

I wasn't sure how the ruching would work, but it is slimming in the front. It is a closer to the body style, though, and in the back I could see the outline of my bra showing. Would have sized up if I could have--I'm a medium in most brands, a large in Lilla P. and would have preferred an extra large in this one, but it wasn't available (if you're in great shape with no back fat, you may not need to size up.) Need to reshape this/dry flat after washing this one or it will become even more form-fitting in the back. The red is an absolutely beautiful, highly saturated color.
Best Uses: Work or play
Cons: May Wish To Size Up
