Women's Performance Soft Swing Sweater
The Lands End quality wasn't evident in this sweater. It looked like it had already been washed and dried for an entire season. Sorry Lands End, I loved the style but the quality just wasn't good enough for the price.

I ordered the petite large, which was a nice size. I love the look of this sweater, but it is a bit clingy in the chest area, the fabric doesn't really move, just kind of "sticks" there, so that was a little odd. Overall, though, a nice sweater. I got the camel color, which is pretty true to what the picture shows. I wish I would have ordered the blue, but they no longer have my size. Good sweater, soft.

The style cut is adorable and I might enjoy it if I had kept it, however, I returned it because the quality of the fabric seemed unworthy of the cost. I am a seamstress and the fabric appeared to be likely to fade with laundering; I always pre-treat fabrics prior to sewing and usually recognize fade potential. Maybe I shouldn't have purchased the black. But the sizing is perfect, not too large nor too small. Cute sweater.

Quality knit, nice buttons, feels good, generous drape
This sweater is both stylish and practical. It perfectly matches its counterpart pants.

Fit is true to size, style is "so-so", a bit overpriced
This sweater fit was ok, I usually wear a large. But it was a little blah stylewise. For the money I would have liked a bit more flare in the sleeves and a tad more shaping and flare in the lower part of the body. Basically what I'm saying is I would have preferred a bit more pizzazz for the price. Otherwise it was excellent quality overall as is usual for Lands' End. I am returning this sweater and will look for another.

Like it but pricey and too high in neck
This sweater is soft and comfortable but wasn't as flattering as the photo. The neckline just rides too high on me. The photos shows some collarbone on the models but not on me. The heather color is a nice medium gray that goes well with dark tweed pants.... But outfit didn't pull together as I pictured because I wore the sweater open due to the neckline.

Great quality, adorable sweater
I never write reviews so that should tell you something about how much I love this sweater. I was a little worried that it wouldn't work because I'm curvy, but this sweater hit my hips perfectly (petite sizing is good) and doesn't emphasize my large chest. Sizing-wise, I'm on the edge between L and XL (petite) and the large fits perfectly. You might think the bottom flares out a little from the photos, but it's not excessive so it's still flattering if you have larger hips.
The quality is excellent, even if this is one of Lands End's pricier sweaters -- you're getting what you pay for in this case. I bought the gray and may get one in each color if the price comes down a little.

lovely, and just as it appears
Very pretty, extremely soft, and well made. Do be aware that the reason the sweater is swingy because it's wide at the bottom, so make sure you don't mind the boxiness. The description has it right, polished 1960s style. The neckline is just a smidge too high for my liking, which is why the four stars, but it has stolen it's way into my heart nonetheless. I'm 5'7, 135 lbs. and the small fits well.

Looks great - wearing the Camel color with a brown tneck and brown plaid slacks and a great chenille "broach."
