Women's 3/4-sleeve Lofty Cotton Cable Trim Crewneck
This sweater is great!
I bought this sweater in ivory and red and love them both. The fit is great and I am pleased with the way they washed. I was also very happy that the back of the sweater looks like the front and is not plain. It is tempting to buy it in every color.

Loved the orange color & cable design, but....
I ordered this sweater in the Petite Large and it fit perfectly EXCEPT the sleeves were very snug; tight to my arms and very noticeably so. I knew I wouldn't wear it. Disappointed to have to return it. Other than that, the quality was exactly what I expected from LE.

Love this sweater bce fit is true to LE sizing, medium weight, washes well. Best of all it is a white top that is not see through ! Got it in teal as well. Not a really heavy sweater, will go into spring and fall

I'd recommend to a younger thinner female
I love the look of this beautiful sweater - on a 6'3, 120 lb , 23 year old air brushed beauty. But on me, a 5'3 1/4 , 137 lb, 59& 3/4 year old once-beauty (kidding) I look like a gourd in a sweater. It's probably the the multi-design, multi-knit cable on both front and back which make me look 'wide-load' . On the positive side, it's soft and very feminine, the shades of color are beautiful and my already-ample enough chest looks even more ample; I adore the 3/4 sleeve (not ruin-able as cotton sleeves can be by obsessively moving them up my arm to use my hands) . I purchased this sweater because of its unique neckline, lovely on me provided I don't drop my eyes from neckline to waistline. I have tried every possible combination of sizes in P to R, Sm to Med, in shades of lemon, raspberry, melon or seabreeze. Sadly , they are all being sent back because I'd rather not look like gourd in a sweater. However, because of the positives already noted, I would recommend this sweater to a taller & thinner or younger female.

Nice, Lightweight Sweater
I ordered three of these sweaters online, and kept two. I ordered the raspberry ice and light bright cyan in a Petite Large, and vibrant cobalt in a Large (because the Petite size was sold out). I am 5'4", 160 lbs., and normally wear between a 12 and 14 in tops/blouses. While the PL fit well (and I kept both of those), the L was way too big (not just too long) all over. I thought if the difference was only sleeve and body length, it wouldn't be an issue, but the shoulders and overall width in the L was much larger than the two petite large sweaters. As some reviewers have mentioned, this particular sweater is not heavyweight or thick so it's better suited for warmer winter climates or, if you're in a colder state like I am, wearing in late spring, early autumn, or in winter under a coat when shopping so you don't overheat. It's very pretty and flattering on. My favorite color was the vibrant cobalt as it was a brighter shade of navy, and I wish it had been available in my size. The raspberry ice is more of a Pepto Bismol pink than a light raspberry (which typically has more purple undertones), but it is still pretty. The light bright cyan isn't as vibrant in person as in the photo online, but it is a nice shade of medium blue with less of a turquoise undertone than one thinks of when they think of the color cyan.

Nice Cable Design
This fits nice and doesn't show what I want hidden. I like the cable design and the neckline. Hope the 3/4 sleeves don't bug me but it seems I am always pushing sleeves up anyway. I hate acrylic so the jury is out on the wash and feel issues. Wish they would use something else blended with cotton.

Very pretty, but...
I was very excited about this sweater. The fabric is beautiful. I thought it was a good weight for wearing to the office or shopping--not so heavy it would be too hot indoors but substantial enough when the weather is cold. The sizing was good, if a little on the trim side. Here's the reason I am returning it: the neckline is not flattering. I really, really wanted to love it, but when I put it on and looked in the mirror, it just didn't look right. That wide cable neckline running sideways just doesn't work for me. It would probably look better with a turtleneck or button-down underneath, but that's too many layers, and the 3/4 sleeves would make it a bit awkward. I would still recommend that you try it out--it may be something about my body shape.

Love this sweater!
The weight of this sweater is perfect. It's just right for wearing indoors or under a jacket. I prefer a sweater like this one that isn't bulky or scratchy. The colors are very pretty. I bought the cyan and the red and might consider getting another color. Nice for work or in a casual setting.

I LOVE this sweater and ordered two more. For me, in TN, it's perfect. It's a silky, medium weight, very comfortable sweater. I love the neckline and 3/4 sleeves. I agree that it isn't exactly a winter sweater, but it's a great one in between seasons. The cables are lovely and it isn't a bulky sweater.
Don't change a thing, except add more colors!

for spring, not a winter catalog
The bright blue depicted on the website is vibrant; the one I received is blue, but its dull. This is definitely a spring-weight sweater, not what I would have expected in a fall/winter catalog. Why not just make the sleeves full-length? Very disappointed in the quality based on my expectations in this price range. Returning :(
