Autograph Open Front Cardigan with Angora
I thought this was going to be gorgeous and ignored the reviews about it being too fitted around the bottom but at 5'9'' it drowned me and ruined my posterior

Lovely, cosy and warm
I bought this cardigan not knowing whether I would keep it or not (due to price). But when I tried it on, I loved it. I know the other reviewers mention that it's clingy around the bottom, it's because of the length of it, so they may get a shorter one!! I love it like that because it makes warm and cosy. The feel of it is lovely.
It comes round a lot at the front, were most cardigans don't. It is chunky so you could nice tops and blouses underneath it. You could wear a few layers under it, but nothing that is chunky like a jumper.
I love it and I am keeping mine!!!

Apple shapes beware
Have just bought this in a size 14 (wear a size 12).
Lovely colour, soft fluffy yarn of a good weight - expect to wear this quite a bit BUT...
Bought in a size up to make the fit more "slumpy" as bum hugging issues evident from the cut of the cardi. Also sleeves in true size a little narrow for layering. Really emphasises the tummy due to it's cut, but the front edges are folded back and secured with thread and I suspect if this thread is cut it may sit better - easily restored if not. Also concealed side pockets do not help the shape but useful for all the bits and bobs foisted upon me by the children at any given time.
Intend to wear with skinny jeans or maybe a tea dress with opaque tights but whatever goes underneath needs to show you have a waist (belt anybody?) Heels will almost certainly feature although flat boots ok with skinnies. Get the balance right and this will be lovely.

Emphasises the bum
This is a beautifully soft cardi, good quality and a versatile colour, but for me, it's spoiIed by the tight welt around the hem and dip at the back, positioned just so that it fitted around - and emphasised - my bum. It wouldn't look good with a dress.
I should have looked at the video, which shows the bum problem clearly.
