PERFECT LITTLE CARDIGAN!!

        This is my first Boden cashmere sweater and I love it! I was needing a cropped cardigan to go with high waisted skirts, pants and some fit and flare dresses I have and this is perfect. Originally I ordered a size 10 based on my chest measurement but it was entirely too big and just frumpy looking! I absolutely loved the allium melange color that I purchased though....after sizing down 2 sizes to a size 6, it fits perfectly and was exactly what I was looking for. I can still button across my chest without any pulling. Looks good buttoned or left open. It's thick, soft and comfortable and the color looks good with just about anything you pair it with! I especially love the way the sweater looks across the shoulders in the back. Very feminine features. I would highly recommend!!

        Inconsistent Styling but Good Quality

        I wasn't sure which size would fit best, so I ordered a size 6 and a size 8 in the pewter intending to return one. The size 6 has a more flattering, slimmer fit, but the sleeves are 3/4 length and the knit fabric is gathered into small tucks in front of the shoulders. It is a blue'ish gray with a violet border running along the inside of the back of the neck and down the inside of the button placket. The size 8 is quite baggy, with full length sleeves and a plain seam above the shoulders. It is more of a taupe gray with a lime green border along the inside of the back of the neck. The size 6 also feels like a softer, plusher cashmere than the size 8.

        Other than being both cropped sweaters, they don't seem to be the same sweater style at all! I can't figure it out.

        I think a slimmer cut in both sizes would be more flattering and stylish, but the unexpected 3/4 length sleeve on the size 6 actually works well with the cropped length.

          The quality on this sweater cannot be beat. The cashmere feels super thick and luxurious, the velvet placked is gorgeous; beautiful buttons, gorgeous colors, nice shaping at the upper back. But oh my gosh, the fit is just beyond awful. It's sooooo poofy and matronly and the wrong length. (Too long to be cropped, too short to be normal length.) My husband actually laughed when I showed it to him. Back it went, and I have to say, it's the last time I'll be buying a cashmere cardi from Boden. (I also tried the regular length and it fit like something I'd snatched from my grandmother, so I thought maybe this would be better? Nope.) These need to be much longer and slimmer to seem on point. Alas, everything else about them is lovely! But unless you want to *actually* look like a retired school librarian (not like a cool/hip one -- which is a look I adore), this is not for you.

            I received the cropped cashmere sweater on Thursday and wore it both Saturday and Sunday. It is very soft and fits great. I anticipate wearing it with leggings and a tunic on a trip to Texas next month. The sparkly yarn is eye catching, yet appropriate for day wear.

              I usually wear US00 but the smallest size at Boden is US2... So I purchased size 2 for the very first time. Surprisingly, the cardigan is very very short, even for me...I guess the only way to wear it is to put it on a dress, like the model in the picture.

                    I've been on the hunt for a gold or mustard color cardigan. I ordered this in citrine. I should have known by the name of the color that it was more green than what I wanted, but it looked so perfect in the catalog. Ended up returning it.

                      I bought this black cardigan to wear over the little black dress because restaurants can sometimes be chilly. It is a little more lightweight than I would have liked, but it will get the job done. It is plain enough that it will go with many things, can be dressed up or down, and could really be worn any season. I am petite, so I love the cropped waist. The velvet trim is a nice touch. It's Boden, after all.

                            Purchased the citrine, and is a nice muted mustard color. Cashmere is soft, not scratchy. My preference is to not have the small gather in the top back center, though not a big deal. Also sleeves are slightly short -- this appears to be the case for me with most Boden long sleeve items. I'd prefer that the sleeves were longer by 0.5 inch in order to cover the wrists (for extra comfy warmth!)

                              I've seen some reviews saying that some Boden cashmere wasn't very soft...but give it a chance! All the Boden cashmere I have has become insanely soft after a first machine wash (gentle cycle and delicate detergent, and I dry them over a towel rack). So nice to avoid expensive dry cleaning. Also, for those with concerns about pilling, these are fine and thick knit, so not especially prone to pilling...but one can also get a cashmere comb for around $5. This handy tool has helped me revive many older sweaters, helping them look almost new and the great thing is that, once pills are combed off a few times, they pill less in future. So glad to have Boden's cropped cashmere cardigan with long sleeves for winter. The forget me not blue is lovely, pretty true to the photo online, and looks great with denim.
