Rated 4 out of 5 by AwesomeOne Box Sweater and Oversized
I bought the medium in Mauve Blush. Pit to Pit lying flat across the front it measures 28". I did check with J Crew Chat before purchasing it as I am on the curvier side of life (38C and an L/XL) and J Crew sizes vary a lot. I am surprised this sweater is box square, not as tailored as I expected or as the picture shows. However, the fit is meant to be lose, as the Customer Service lady pointed out. I normally wear pit to pit 20 to 22" but this is ok for the look. Perhaps I could have taken a small even but I like the comfy feel and look of this one and the bust fits fine. It's also fairly thick, not like their very thin cashmeres. The most disappointing issue, however, is the color. It's not a clean pink but more dusty pink. Not sure where blush or mauve come into it or how come it looks fresh pink in the photo. Muted pink, I would say. Still, I love the feel and will keep it as I have a cold trip coming up. Not sure if it's worth the price even with 25% off. Cuff is fairly fitted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by maura222 I wanted to love it
I LOVE JCREW cashmere...I own LOTS of styles from many seasons.
I knew this ran big/boxy so I ordered a medium, as I have in other oversized JCREW items. (I'm 5'9 & 150lbs, athletic build-torso to leg ratio is average)
I ordered the olive color which is fine...but the fit?
The sleeves seem short just barely reaching my wrist-the body is definitely boxy and that part I like...but the length seems too short, doesn't really match the overall look of the sweater-nor the example on the model...not as tailored as it is represented, like another reviewer mentioned.
Also...and this is huge with me...it is def. not as soft as other JCREW cashmere that I own...it is almost 'scratchy' when trying on alone I think I would need to wear something under to avoid being uncomfortable.
Sadly...I will have to return it.

I wore this sweater once or twice before the front pocket pilled up. I have to defuzz it after each wear. Not high quality cashmere! Also, it feels very soft but it is ever so slightly itchy unlike some other brands of cashmere I own. I am wary of buying J. Crew cashmere in the future.
I do love the blush color; it's very flattering with my olive skin tone. I also like the boxy fit and purchased my usual size, XS (117 llbs, 5'6, slim shoulders)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Irene Too boxy!
I just returned this sweater. The fit is too boxy. I ordered a size small and it still was too big and had too much fabric under the arms. The color is lovely, the quality wonderful, I was really hoping it would work.
