Boatneck Bubble-Sleeve Pullover Sweater

Boatneck Bubble-Sleeve Pullover Sweater is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sweater! I bought this on a whim and I've ended up really loving it. some thick sweaters are too hot but this one is good. it's a little more of the oversized style, not fitted, so it's a little more bulky but still manages to be flattering. I love the balloon sleeve and button detail on it, makes it a little more unique twist on a classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super cute sweater but... the sweater is a little itchy for me, so i decided not to keep it. however, it is super cute. i wear S in most sweaters here because i like it a little loose and it was a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and warm I normally hate cropped sweaters but this one fits perfectly lengthwise on me (about mid-hip) without looking too boxy. The material is thick and soft and the balloon sleeves are adorable! It is surprisingly warm (I wear with a light cami underneath). For reference I am 5'2 110 lbs and usually wear xs/s in sweaters. The xs looked frumpy on me and the sleeves were too long. Sized down to the xxs for a perfect fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter Staple I am 5'8, 34dd and usually wear a medium in Madewell. I ordered the medium in this and it fits perfectly! Sometimes, with boxy sweaters I can look and feel frumpy (the garment hangs off my big boobs and swallows my narrowish waist) but not with this sweater! It hits right at the hip and drapes beautifully, making it super flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great This was a great buy! It's warm but stylish. Looks great with jeans and booties - you can dress it up or down. I can wear it to work or out with friends. I wish they offered it in another color - I would purchase it. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and Comfy with a Statement Sleeve i just recently purchased three sweaters from madewell and I am obsessed with this one. The bubble sleeve is the perfect statement! I paired it with a pair of dark washed jeans, leopard booties, and red tassel earrings and received so many compliments. I know some of the reviews felt it was a bit itchy after which I can understand but after a few hours of wear it was very comfortable and warm. It's the perfect dress up/dress down sweater. I've had it for a week and a half and worn it twice already. Definitely recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cute I really love the fit and style of this sweater. It is soft and comfortable, but it started pilling almost as soon as I put it on. I like it enough to keep it, but would expect better quality for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boatneck bulky sweater Very soft sweater. Nice and thick. If I could have returned it for a smaller size I would. Nicely made.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from itchy This sweater looks really cute in pictures, but it was just too boxy looking on my 5'4 ,110 lb body. The sweater was also slightly itchy, so it was uncomfortable to wear. I also noticed that it was pilling when I brought it home just from people trying it on in the store!! Sadly, I'll be returning this sweater. Madewell, step your quality game up!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A pilling nightmare! I received this sweater for Christmas. The style is lovely, from the wide neck to the balloon sleeves. By the third wear it began pilling and it hasn't stopped. I think whatever synthetic fiber that makes up the wool blend is causing this, and I hope Madewell will stop using it in their process, since this is my third madewell sweater that looks too gnarly to wear anywhere outside of my living room because of the nasty pilling. This seems to be the new trend among madewell products- the style and quality don't meet eye to eye anymore and its terribly disappointing, especially since the price hasn't changed. Stay away from this sweater :-(
