Nice and Sleek
Bought these because they were described as compressive, which I really appreciate for workouts (& the slimming affect on my hips) especially when running. I'm able to work out harder in compression gear. But I love these so much for wearing around town that I haven't worn them for workouts. They've been amazing for travel and look more polished, with the taped zipper pocket detail, than basic leggings. Received several compliments. At first sight (& feel) I thought they'd be too thin to sculpt well compared to my other compression leggings, but the fabric is so smooth and opaque they look and wear great. Like another mentioned, they're long. I'm only 5'4" but with long legs for my height and can usually wear a 28" legging inseam just fine. But these stretch so much when I put them on that I have 4" of extra fabric. I tried to spread the length out since other 28" leggings fit fine, but the fabric just doesn't lay as well not stretched. Was worth getting them hemmed.

Looks backwards on me
Couldn't get over the feeling that on me, the depth of the V cut out made it look like I was wearing the sweater backwards. Would have looked better less plunging. Didn't seem to improve with a tank underneath. I'm very slim but busty. Probably would be more flattering on others. I selected the true to size option because it's meant to be oversized, but it is very much so.

Even better in person
Love merino wool for comfort everyday and polish in professional settings. The style is a nice change from the usual oversized or totally fitted sweaters. It's relaxed and fitted. Flattering to my hourglass figure. Bought my usual XS though the fit on the model suggested it might run small in the bust. (She's wearing a S but they're usually in XS's on this site.) Still blousy with no odd pooching on the sides over the tie like it looks in the last photo here. One fit issue. Not sure if it's me or the cut of the sweater. There's too much fabric under the turtleneck/the neck isn't cut deep enough into the chest. There's a pronounced fold across the top of the chest on me. Should also mention that the rose color looks very different in person. It's darker and more neutral. Maybe a shade of mauve? Still very pretty.

Wonderful, but a tough fit
There were a couple good surprises, like the fact that the main part of the body is a very pretty light cream color while the ruffles are a truer white. The two look great together and add dimension and also look great with the silver zippers. I also love that the zippers really function the whole lengths and can be opened as much or as little as desired. Very attractive and interesting. But the fit was a challenge. The tank is very straight and my figure isn't. The knit also isn't very stretchy (as far as knits go). The tank is cropped, which I often like since all my height is in my legs and things are usually long waisted on me. But with the straight fit, the short length just makes it look odd. I'm sure this will be fabulous on the right figure.

Great basic
Yes it's a basic but the curved, off center button front gives a really nice touch and flatters the figure. It's a little larger than I'd expected but I'll be keeping it because light-weight wool knits like this are so perfect for travel. They look great dressed up or down and light-weight wool, especially merino, is comfortable in a wide range of temps. It can also be worn more than once without getting stinky, as wool is naturally antimicrobial.

Very small in the bust
The color is beautiful and the design interesting but it wasn't made for someone busty, unless they're also larger through the middle. This was roomy in the waist and hips but was 5-6 inches too small in the bust. This is typically the limiting factor for me but I don't often encounter that large a difference when it comes to tops that look like they have an hourglass shape like this one. Trust the picture of the model. It's not clipped in back at the bustline. It really is that slim through the bust.

Pretty
I really like the way this looks all zipped up but decided it's not for me because it's tough to zip. The zipper travels up under the arm. It was difficult to get the zipper up and through that point. (I am busty so maybe that caused it to be more under my arm than it might be on someone less curvy?) In any case, I don't want to wrestle with something like this. It was also difficult to get started, which I don't encounter in quality garments very often. The sweater is not quite special enough for the effort required, especially with my overly full schedule. As for the size, I checked that it was "smaller than expected" but that's not quite accurate. It fits as expected based on the way it fits the model, but it fits smaller than most garments in the same size. Also, the knit is less stretchy width-wise than the average sweater knit. That works with the design, given the great shape and ruffle flourish but might limit the fit.

Beautiful workhorse sweater
This is a great go-to basic that's not too basic. The sleeves look great worn all the ways shown in the photos and open at the bottom half gives a bit of drama. I love that A.L.C. makes a lot of knits like this in light weight wool. Light weight wool wears comfortably in a broad range of temperatures. And theirs is rarely if ever itchy. It also looks great with dress pants, skirts, jeans, leggings.... This will get lots of use and be a great travel piece.

Gorgeous color but too oversized
I knew it would be roomy but it's too oversized. I own a ton of A.L.C., mostly XS (or 0's & 2's) and a few S's but the XS in this sweater is just too big to look good on me. I'm slim with a small waist and ample bust. Oversized stuff looks okay, but sloppy doesn't work. Just makes me look dumpy, pudgy and matronly. Disappointing because the color is beautiful. A gorgeous burgundy that's not too purple or too brown. Maybe if it had been cropped I could have managed it. The XS was even roomy on my friend who is a 4-6 and busty. If oversized looks great on you, you should snag this great sweater. Or, if you usually wear an S in A.L.C. buy this in the XS for a similar fit to (most) of your other A.L.C. sweaters.

Simple yet Interesting
This sweater didn't work for me but I'm giving it 4 stars because it will be great for others. The openings on the sides provide interest and the sweater knit keeps it from looking like the a workout top. I love pieces with clean lines and key interesting details. Unfortunately, the cut of the top layer over the bust didn't hit me right, causing the edges to stick out. I'm slim with curves. I'm sure it would have been perfect if I were a little less busty or if I were a bit larger overall so that the edges would have landed in a different spot. This sweater has a more modest cut than many similar open-sided tops I've tried (including another from A.L.C.) and would probably be fine for work environments that aren't conservative. Under a jacket it would be appropriate most anywhere since the cutouts are relatively narrow and limited to the sides. The under layer is wide enough to cover any bra so there's no challenge finding the right undergarment for it.
