I bought the Magenta in LARGE. Ilike that it's cozy & roomy, but not sloppy - It's much cuter by ruching the fabric at my waist, rather than pulling it straight (like it is on the models in the pics). I LOVE that there's a lot of fabric at the neck - it just adds to the snuggliness of the sweater. I wear it over leggings, jeans, skirts, pajama bottoms (while lounging @ home).
I also have the Jet in a MEDIUM. It's a bit more fitted, & appears to be a tad dressier. I think I could get away with wearing this in a more professional/dressier setting; in addition to a casual setting.
I'm very pleased with the multifunctionality of these sweaters. They'll get a lot of use for 3 seasons...they're a bit too warm for summer's heat.
Reviewed by The Little Greek from Eagle River, AK on Monday, November 3, 2014I've been waiting to buy this sweater for months. I really, REALLY wanted it to fit. Unfortunately, it's just awful. I'm 5'1", 105 lbs and I bought an XS. The length is fine, hanging just long enough to cover by behind. That being said, it's very bunchy around the waist but then very tight on the hips and butt. And then there are the arms that are just…off. They are dolman-type sleeves that start almost at the hip. There is just way too much fabric hanging underneath the arms. It's hard to describe really, but it looks awful. My husband saw me try it on and immediately said "uh, no, that's terrible." I will say that the fabric is amazing and feels buttery soft. It's definitely great Icebreaker quality, it's just a shame that the fit is so bad. I've already put in a return request to send this one back.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from WI on Thursday, October 23, 2014This is the first Icebreaker product that I had to return, and I have many, all of which I would give a 5 star rating. The fabric was nice, and I really wanted to like this sweater. The length and long sleeves were perfect. The armholes were HUGE. Maybe if I had big broad shoulders it would have taken up some of that material and it would have looked better. Just too much excess fabric under the arms.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Qica from Peru on Tuesday, April 29, 2014I ordered this top in two different colours thinking I would choose one and send one back. I like them so much that I kept both! This top is stylish, comfy, warm, soft and flattering. I really like that the funnel neck keeps my neck nice and warm. I have only warm them a couple of times so I can't comment on pilling and durability at this point. I ordered a small, which fits perfectly. I'm 5'6", chest 35", waist 27" if that's any help for sizing. I got them at a good price so they were good value. As much as I love them, I'm not sure if I would pay full price.
