A92993 - Dialogue Mixed Stitch Cardigan with Pleated HemDetail
Bell Shaped Bottom
I really wanted this one to work, the stitching is beautiful, the pleats are perfect, and it's very warm without being too heavy. Looks great on the hanger but it turns my body into a funny bell shape according to my chuckling teenage son. I just really like the style so I'm ignoring the laughing comments, taking the advice of another commenter and slapping a pin on my sweater so I can wear it proudly to work. Hopefully the added bling will distract from the big bottom.
Stylish Warm Beautiful
I am a large woman, who is a professional, I wore this to work and not only did it keep me warm but it looked amazing on me. Many Many compliments. Looks great with a Pin....I got a this in Black 2X and love it!!!!!
This top is so cute! I love the pleats and the material is very soft! Ladies, take advantage of the price!
Size Up and Work with it
I ordered both colors and sized up to M. The chest area is fitted and a bit transparent. As another reviewer said, you will need to wear matching undergarments under this sweater.
I also agree that the fit is quite odd. If it were a little longer, maybe that would work. The tie at the waist is useless, it doesn't cinch your waist it just hangs there. If you try to tie it tight it bunches up the sweater.
The pleats provide a boxy look and give the illusion of large hips and rear. I am a pear shape but because the top is so fitted, the ballooning pleats kind of even things out.
The black sweater is larger than the tan sweater...and they are both the same size! I wore the black sweater with a black spanx like top underneath. As another reviewer noted, I opened the top 2 (or 3) buttons, folded that part down and created a collar. This loosened up the chest area a bit. One problem solved. Then I took that ridiculous tie and tucked it inside the sweater through the open button spaces and then I belted it with a silver chain belt. After all of the temporary "altering", the black sweater looked gorgeous on me. The tan one is shorter and smaller (same size!) so that one is going back.
Had I not read the reviewer's suggestion about the buttons/collar and belted the black sweater, both would be going back.
Try to work with it, you may surprise yourself.
Not a Flattering Fit...
I ordered this sweater in the tan color and was not impressed by the color. It was a bit dull compared to the picture online. I also did not like the fit but perhaps that's because I am petite height. This may be a better look for taller and slimmer women. The sizes seem to run true to size.
Sorry, but had to return.
Love it, just ordered the camel color in addition to the black one I just received.
Makes the hips look puffy!
A miss not a hit. I am returning both colors as the pleats puff out too much at the waist and make you look like you have big hips and I'm a size 4 and don't. The side view is flattering though but from the front I look fat. Look at the photo and imagine it twice as puffy at the pleats.
Stylish Great Fitting Sweater
This sweater fits well and flatters. I am petite and it runs smaller than a normal dialogue xs. I love it and am considering the other color. The price is even better now.
I was surprised how great it fit. I have a little bit of a stomach but just as the description states the waist is high but presents a flattering look. Glad the tie is only a tie and doesn't adjust the waist. I wore the collar turned down with two of the buttons undone. I received a good number of compliments on the top. Make sure under garmets match!
