Women's 3/4-sleeve Fine Gauge Supima Picot V-neck Sweater
Good but not Great
First of all, the Peach Frost color is nowhere NEAR what it looks like in the photo. It is a bright pastel barely-there blush color. The fabric is soft but not what I'd expected from something being sold as "Only Supima, America’s finest cotton, feels this good". Honestly, I wouldn't be able to tell this doesn't have synthetic fiber in it. It feels like a poly blend to me. It's a bit stiff and even though it's not necessarily scratchy, it's not what I would call really soft either. It's okay. The "trusty wear" I can believe. And that's really the only real complaint I have with it other than the price. I got it for the sale price; if I hadn't, that might be an issue.
I do like the weight/thickness of the sweater. It's a thin sweater but not tissue-thin or even tee shirt-thin. It's not a cable knit sweater, it's not bulky or cozy. It's perfect for fall and spring but don't expect it to get you comfortably through a cold winter night out.
The fit is fine. I usually require a size L (Regular) but they were sold out so I went with a 0X (Plus), which offers 42.5" in the bust area (as opposed to 40-42" for the L/14-16 Regular size range) and 1/2" shorter sleeves. The sleeves are fine but the chest is just a tiny bit roomy and it shows when I raise my arms. But it's really not enough for me to return it. It looks fine when I'm wearing it and the extra room doesn't look too bad.
Overall it's a lovely lightweight sweater, nothing special, good for work or dinner out; just don't expect to get the dusty pink color you see on screen.

Love the sweater weight and color (peach frost). Don't like that the sleeves stretch out. They were a little long on me to be 3/4 so I pushed them up some. Have to keep pushing them up. Now have had to roll them up. Will be returning the two that I bought. Too bad. Good weight for Louisiana. Lovely Sweaters!!!!

Just wore it and I saw that end of sleeve stretch out. I really like the 3/4" sleeve so there's no need to push up sleeves so I don't understand why they would stretch. I ordered light pink, but not that crazy about shade. I thought being a 1X it would slightly longer.

If you like thin, but are not, this might work for you
Thought this would be good for spring and early fall, but it's too thin especially for someone who is not.
The navy color was really DULL and though I love the salmon and pink I think they would be too "see-through". I could lose some weight and this sweater could stand to gain some weight!

Perfect product- get one in every colour!
Perfect fit and shape, perfect pure cotton knit fabric and wonderful colours. The Peach Frost does not look at all nice online but is lovely. All the colours are nice. I only regret not getting a matching cardigan when they were in stock and able to be shipped overseas (apparently the shell buttons cannot be shipped- which sounds crazy to me as plastic is much worse for the environment than using shells)
My only criticism is Border Free as middleman removes all prices for items on invoices- sometimes important when deciding whether to keep or return something- and does not refund full amount despite shipping being paid for by customer.

it's true the fabric is great
the hi qual fabric feels great and looks good, i got this in a soft pink and the color together with what i think is called a picot trim at the v neck is a bit like a jammie shirt with that detail.

A nice, soft sweater with a relaxed but flattering fit. Didn't shrink much after the first couple washings, even though I'm terrible to my clothes and always dry them on high heat. The cotton has a bit of shine to it for extra class.

Great colour & soft comfortable fabric
I ordered this sweater in the aqua and it is beautiful colour which I have received compliments on. I would have preferred it without the picot trim as I like a simpler look, but that said it is a soft, comfortable top that you can just throw on. I'm also waiting for the time when Land's End offers XS in Tall - at 5'8" a little extra length would be great.

A few days before I ordered this, the online store said that it was out of stock, and they would not be getting anymore. But I was delightfully surprised to see that it was again available a few days later. It is prettier than I thought it was going to be.

Too short and "ribbed" fabric
Plus Size Review: I'd been waiting for them to come out with a 3/4 length sweater and thought this would be a winner. Unfortunately they were way too short. I'm only 5'4 with a slightly smaller than average torso and it barely came to mid-hip. Plus, the fabric should really be described as "ribbed," which is awful on plus-size people since it clings to every imperfection. Definitely not a good buy.
