Rated 5 out of 5 by from ADORABLE Love this sweater! Size wise I'm an 8 on top, went to the store for my usual size M but they were sold out. SA handed me a large and it looked great! Slightly oversized...perfect for layering

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snug Fit & Shorter Than Typical Madewell Madewell clothing is typically very generous in their sizing. My daughter typically wears a Madewell medium, but this sweater, though it fits, is more form fitting. Also, runs shorter in length. If you like your clothing more relaxed, I would order up a size. My daughter is 5'6", chest 36C. Soft with adorable style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, complimenting-getting, trendy sweater!! Love this sweater! Fits great, buttons are adorable, great off white color and "hmmm" embroidery gets TONS of complements and questions as to where I got it. Did have to give less stars for "quality" as the sweater has pilled pretty quickly, with about three wears, and I wouldn't expect pilling with this type of sweater but otherwise I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings I received this sweater and had a couple of thoughts right from the start: the weave was loose and there was a hole in the sleeve, the embroidery didn't seem solid (when you looked up close, there were spaces in the letters of the 'hmmm'), and the fit was very snug compared to typical Madewell sweaters. I am always an XS in Madewell and I could barely get this over my head. I have a big chest but I am very petite so this was frustrating. I am going to bring this back because of the hole in the sleeve but am undecided about if I'll exchange it for the S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hmmm... My favorite sweater of the season that Madewell has made! As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. Your basic crew sweater, with cute embroidered message which is so on trend right now! Then you turn around and bam. The detailing of this sweater with the button back is amazing, I've received so many compliments so far! My favorite is wear a striped cami underneath with a few buttons undone ;) I'm a true small in Madewell, but bought a medium for an oversized rolled out of bed casual look! Ps - it will pill like most sweaters do, so make sure to hand wash like the label states!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great every day sweater. Soft and pretty. It's a bit shorter than I'd like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy and stylish This sweater is so cute. The fabric is soft and it has great details. The only con is that is does have a bit of a strange wooly smell but it isn't a deal breaker. I'm glad I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute sweater So happy with this purchase! I love the weave on this cute sweater, but I bought it for the unique button detailing on the back. I get tons of compliments whenever I wear it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and soft This is a light sweater, so it's perfect for "winter" in Southern California. I am 34C and wear a size 26 in Madewell jeans and the small had a fitted but not tight look (it doesn't highlight any bulges or anything). If you wanted something roomier, I would size up. It has a loose, lightweight weave and the off-white color is really nice. The back button detailing is a lovely touch.
