      I love the colors in the navy sweater and absolutely love my Fair Isle sweater from Boden from last year but this one was off. The one I purchased last year has the pattern at the neck and across the shoulders instead of lower like this one. Because of the pattern across the bust and upper arms, the sweater pulls uncomfortably at that line. I also found the location of the pattern visually unflattering. Wish this same color way had been offered in last year's design! Sent this one back.

      I love this sweater! I ordered the Dark Blue with Orange pattern. The color is vibrant and just as pictured. I found it to fit True to Size, for reference I am 5'6 127 lbs and normally wear size 4. I ordered this sweater in my normal size 4. I would give this sweater a perfect rating if it wasn't for noticing that the stitching pulled under the armpits after wearing it only twice. I do think it will hold up. Other than that, a great find. Thank you.

      Not flattering on broad shoulders

          I'll keep this sweater in navy as a higher end weekend option with jeans, but in my regular size it is too baggy for skirts or work. It would look best on women with narrow shoulders and smaller chests than mine. On me, it appears unisex.

            I went back and forth on this sweater for a while. I loved the look but wasn't sure if it'd be comfortable or worth the money. I finally ordered it and I must say it's one of my favorite sweaters ever!

              Love this sweater in green, though my 11 year-old son did tell me I look like an Easter egg in it. :) It's not as bulky as I expected, which makes it more comfortable but also makes it prone to wrinkle at the hip line after sitting for a while.

                This sweater is beautiful. I bought it in navy and the colors of the fair isle are so bright next to the navy. It is definitely a slim fit sweater but my standard size 4 fit perfectly. The fit feels similar to the J.Crew Tippi Sweater.

                    I purchased this in green and beige, and love both. I normally buy size 8, but sized up to 10, based on other reviews. I prefer a little room, and the 10 is perfect--not baggy. The 8 would have been very fitted, but would have been fine for that type of look.

                      • Strange Fit

                      Best Uses

                        I had read many reviews that raved about this sweater so I ordered 2 - navy and green - in a size 6. I am 5'7" and weigh 115#. I typically wear a size 6 in Boden knitwear to get a long enough sleeve length. That being said, the sleeves on both sweaters were just a tad too short. What I can't get past is the very strange fit! The sweater appears from the front to fit me in the bust/shoulders and the waist but from the side/back view there is a "ballooning" (for lack of a better term) of material across my mid to upper back. I am a very slender build with a small bust so I don't know if this cut is for a more busty gal than me. I also purchased the penguin sweater and the same "ballooning" in the upper back region is happening with that one as well. Ordering a smaller size would just mean even shorter sleeves which I couldn't live with. Not sure I will keep these. I am going to try steaming them since they arrived folded across the chest region and if that doesn't work, they are definitely going back!

                          I ordered the navy sweater in a size 4, and like the way it fits. I am 5'3" and 115lbs - narrow shoulders. The colors are fun for drab days and with a pair of stretchy cords, and light blue collared shirt underneath, it looks super cute! I am always cold in my house and this warms me right up! Love it!

                            love this sweater because it brings some color to the casual weekend wear. Fits perfectly to look more classic. Colors are sophisticated enough to wear to work with a skirt. It fits true to size. It is not oversized so it is perfect for any occasion.
