What a cute sweater! The oatmeal has beautiful colors in the pattern and it goes well with jeans, pants, skirts. Feels true to size, although it's meant to hug your body. It's 100% wool so it's a tad scratchy, but perfect otherwise.

    Beautiful material, felt like it would last. Unfortunately it was too short for me (i do have a longer torso). With a pencil skirt it might have been okay. Sad to send it back as i loved the design.

          Size up. I am a true size 6 Boden and this was way to tight in the bust and shoulders/sleeves. There was no way I was going to risk any shrinkage when it is cleaned. Going back-reordering.

            This sweater has a slim fit, which I prefer. It is flattering, not slouchy. Order up a size if you prefer a relaxed fit. I am 5'7" 135 lb, and the size 6 is perfect.

            The fabric is soft, does not pill (thank you Boden!), and feels like it will last.

            This sweater happens to look great with the Cambridge skirt.

            Love the design, disappointed in the fit - I'm 5'10" and busty, and even though I ordered one size up from my usual Boden size this made me look like I was trying to squeeze into a children's sweater (arms and body too short, too tight across the chest). So sad because I was really looking forward to a new cozy wool sweater this winter! It would look great on someone under 5'7" and a C cup or smaller.

            Boden, could you please add some tall sizes in tops and sweaters?

            Lovely top but wish it came in petite

            I love this top. Unfortunately, it's just too large for me. I usually wear a 2 petite in Boden. I have a very small chest, but I thought I'd give the 2 regular a shot. The shoulders are too large, and there is just too much fabric in the chest area. I was swimming in this top. I had to return it.

            I got it in Beetroot Statement Floral. I tried it on with a bunch of outfits, and I thought it was a beautiful, versatile top -- it dressed up a plain gray suit nicely, worked well with skinny jeans and complemented a navy blue pencil skirt perfectly. I really wish it fit me.

              LOVE these Boden Fair Isle sweaters! I bought my first one last year & wish I would've bought more before they sold out in my size. They came back with more in different colors this year so I was thrilled! Ordered 2 of the 3 colors, the navy & green. The colors are so vibrant and cheerful, just what you need in the gloom of fall/winter days. They are also very comfortable & warm. They look great to wear to work as well as with jeans on the weekends. way to go Boden!

                This sweater is a flattering update from last year's edition in terms of both the design (pattern is around the chest rather than around the neck) and the color selection (the green is fun but not too loud). It goes great with jeans and skirts and keeps me warm without being too heavy. I ordered a size up for comfort; if I had ordered true to size it would have been too fitted for my taste.

                  This sweater is lovely shade of green and the pink and purple zig zags complement it beautifully. They closely match the website picture. It is soft, just a bit scratchy but with a vest or shirt underneath, no issue. I wear between 10-12 in Boden depending on the item, this runs a little large so a 10 was perfect. Not too tight or baggy, even in the chest area where I am busty!
