Short but cute
I normally wear a small in dresses but if it is flowy (like this one) I size down to an XS. In this case, I am currently 4 months pregnant and the XS still fits me best except that the sleeves are too short on me. Also, the small is an inch or so longer so I ended up keeping the Small. I could have gotten past the short length on the dress but it was the too short sleeves on the XS that bugged me the most. For reference, I am 5'6" and normally a 32B, 26" waist (pre-pregnancy). I wear this dress with nude boy shorts with a lace trim (also from Shopbop) underneath because this dress is so short and flowy. Bottom line, if length isn't a concern, then size down.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Lots to love
There is a lot to like about this cardi so I'll start with the good points first- The pattern and colors are great. I love the reddish orange colors running through the blue. The sweater is very cozy and comfortable. It's not really itchy...I mean, it's not the softest sweater I've ever had but I haven't been bothered by the itchiness, either. What I wish was better was the fit. I bought an XS and I'm 5'6", 120lbs, 32B. The length was fine (looks like the pics). I do think that the shape could be a little better in terms of how it hugs the body. It's a little too straight and well, oversized! (I know, no surprise, but I wish it weren't quite so oversized). I contemplated returning this one but every time I try it on it is so cozy that I don't want to take it off. Overall this is a very cute sweater but I just prefer my clothes to be a little more body-hugging. If you feel the same you may want to size down if you can!
Sizing: Larger than Expected
