Women's Supima Turtleneck Sweater
had to settle for gray
What caught my eye was the color that looked like antiqued pink, but it was out of stock in small. since they were reduced slightly I went ahead a purchased a heather gray, a neutral color, goes with anything. the weight is light but feels great. have not washed it yet. the only GRIPE I have is the tag in back. IT IS ITCHY, so i carefully remove it and hand sew it to the side seam.

I got 2 of these when they first went on sale, a striped one and a burgundy one. I love them! I dry them flat so they won't shrink. The knit is just the right thickness and not bulky at all. Looks perfect with dress pants for work. I got one in my usual size XSP and one XS regular, they're both fine. The weight of the cuffs make them easy to turn up so they aren't too bulky and I appreciate the extra length in the body of the regular one. I'm 5'2" and weigh 115 lbs. Usual size is XSP but this year I have found the sizes were smaller for some reason and have gone to S for many items.

I have many of these in my wardrobe. They are so versatile...wear with dress slacks, twills, jeans and skirts. Dressed up or down. I order larger because I don't want clingy. The wash instructions have been different on tags and catalog descriptions. Last years sweaters were never as long as they were pictured. Wash instructions also said they could be dried on low, which I did on a couple. I don't believe this caused shrinkage though. The two I've had from this year are starting off about 3"longer, which is great. I dry them flat now. But, I like them and order new colors. They are light weight and I like that. I think they hold their shape quite well for being cotton.

Tighter fit and very odd coral
I ordered this in my usual large - it was very snug, without much give in the stitching on the inset arms. The coral is actually a light orange, with an odd cream stripe in the knit. If you like orange with no coral in it, it would be fine. NOT a flattering color on this fair blonde.

Very pretty sweater!
Love the simplicity of this sweater. I bought the grey, very nice but wish I would have bought more colors. Not too heavy, light enough to not feel bulky but keeps me warm.

This sweater is lighter weight than others I have ordered in past years.
The fit is comfortably loose, the colors I chose were true to the photo, but I preferred the heavier weight of the ones I purchased in past years.

This sweater never goes out of style. I was looking for a turtleneck that didn't fit skin tight and this fit the bill. The fit is proportioned very well. I bought 2 and wish I had bought more. LE clothes run on the generous size .I'm 5'4, 113lbs and I ordered an XS.

Neck is too short
Overall I like this sweater and I enjoy wearing it. It feels very soft and the fit all around is good, not too baggy but not too figure hugging ( I haven't washed it yet). I bought the black and the ivory. My only issue is that the neck is too short for my taste. It only goes half way up my neck whereas I like a turtle neck that goes right up to my chin to keep me nice and toasty. In addition it doesn't sit tight to the neck so it looks a bit flappy around the bottom of my neck (the picture is a bit misleading in this regard).I don't mind a baggy roll but only if its up high.

What a Nice Sweater
This is a really nice sweater for the money, and if you can get it on a promotion, it's even nicer. I'm 5'4" and weigh 117 pounds and ordered my usual Petite Small, which fits beautifully. The fabric is a soft, tight-knit supima cotton weave, and drapes beautifully. It also wears well and wrinkles minimally throughout the day. It doesn't bag out and keeps its shape. I originally ordered it in rich red, which is a beautiful, bright color: the classic red. After seeing what a great sweater it was, I ordered it in black, ivory, light heather gray and light heather blue. It wears well both tucked in and not, and goes with every other item in my closet. Because the sweater is light and not bulky it can be worn under a blazer or a slightly larger than fitted shirt. It washes and dries well on delicate. I leave it in the dryer just long enough to get most of the moisture out, then hang to finish drying. These sweaters have definitely become some of my go-to pieces for both work and play.

I purchased a few of these in different colors. I love the fit...although I would love it even more if it was longer in the body! I find them "comfortably warm" - not too hot under another jacket or sweater on cool days or in a cooler facility. The neck isn't too tight so is always comfortable!
