Women's Fleece Pea Coat Cardigan
Cute, but not for me...too tight in the neck
This is super cute. I did not find it a large fit at all. I would say it is true to size. It's a little, hmm, formal when buttoned up all the way. It hugs the neck a bit, which made me uncomfortable. If it was a v-neck I would have liked it better. It needs to be buttoned to look right, otherwise I may have kept it. It was super soft, and fairly warm. So, for many people, this would be great!

Love, love, love!! But I don't think this runs as large as some say.
I just received my order and I am quite pleased!! This is essentially a well made and cute/stylish sweatshirt. I ordered the cardinal red that is so bright and vibrant... I just love it. But as I looked over the reviews before ordering (as I rely heavily on what others have to say) I was pretty well convinced that this cut jacket/sweatshirt ran VERY big and ordered the medium. I AM a size 10-12 (med) 5'6", athletic 145 lbs, but usually order my sweatshirts in a size large (14-16) because I don't want that "glove-like" fit in my sweatshirts after washing. I like them a little loose and comfortable and something I can wear a teeshirt or turtle neck under if I choose to; but not so large that I look like I'm wearing my husband's shirt. So I ordered the medium (10-12) and thought that it would be a bit big based on the reviews and would fit just the way I like after washing. But it fits me perfectly right out of the box. The fit looks almost exactly on me as it does on the model (if that visual helps), except the sleeves are much trimmer and they fall to the tops of my hands (I'm sure she has several inches of height over me). Perfect and CUTE! But this is made up of 80/20 material and recommends a tumble dry on low. I'm thinking I'll skip the dryer completely as I'm afraid it will likely hug my arms and curves more than I like if dried. A fit some might like, but not me when it comes to my sweatshirts. I gave it 5 sails because I do love the style, color and out-of-the-box fit. For me, the sizing was spot on; I AM a 10-12 and this medium IS a 10-12.

I loved the pea coat styling from the picture but what a disappointment. I ordered a size Large but what arrived was more like a plus size XXL. There was no waist -- it just ballooned out. I would have to take the garment in by about 7 inches! To top it all off, the label says "Land End Kids". So, wrong size and wrong label. I wasn't too impressed with the material either, although that would not have been a deal breaker. The material is standard sweat-shirt cloth of middle weight. A total miss.

It looks like a maternity jacket. I bought an M and it's still big, although I am size 14.

I'm always looking for a sweatshirt that is not your ordinary sweatshirt. Leave it to Lands End to to create just that! This jacket fit the bill. It's cute, stylish, and fits great. I can go between a medium and a large depending on the fit of LE clothing. A medium in this is perfect.

It is casual and perfect weight for the fall
This jacket runs very big, I purchased one size small and it is still big, but will be great for layering.

Like so much might get it another color.
I really like this cardigan. Comfortable yet fashionable. Like a fancy sweatshirt! I wear and bought a medium and it fits well. I did notice the sleeves were a tad long but not a big deal. I ordered the red...thinking about getting the grey.

Too big! Added 20 pounds.
I wish I had listened to the other reviewers. This is so cute on the model, but in reality, just too big. It's too boxy in the chest and waist, so it ended up looking like a maternity jacket on me. I wish it had been tailored in the waist more. Shame. Back it goes...

I bought this is the red and navy and they fit great
The sleeves are long but I have long arms. Love the material and can't wait for the weather to get cold to wear it.

I haven't worn this yet but the sleeves are REALLY long!
I really like your products but in the past few years I have been dissapointed in several purchases especially shoes. I have not seen such narrow wide sizes. I will remain a loyal shopper but always make sure I read the reviews before I make a purchase.
