I don't know where all of the reviews for this item went, I read several before buying, but they all seem to be gone. Overall, I love these sweaters. I bought two on sale and wear them all the time. However, many previous reviewers mentioned how the fabric significantly shrinks when washed. I took a chance and bought anyway since I'm very petite (5'1"). First, these sweaters fit well even if your'e short. They cover your rear but don't look too long. Second, I noticed they do shrink significantly just from washing (I hung them on a rack to dry, I did not put them in the dryer). Also, the fabric becomes very bunchy and stiff after washing. I still really like the sweaters and can work with this, but beware if you're tall -- after washing they might not fit anymore.
