Rated 5 out of 5 by michellek14 The perfect wardrobe staple
Great quality, great colors, and an overall perfect cardigan to throw on for a day in the office. I do agree with the other reviews that it runs a big small--something I find rather universal about Factory vs. regular J Crew. However, I have this cardigan in a L and XL, and find myself appreciating the fit of the L more often (athletic shoulders, larger bust, regularly around a sz 12). If you're stuck between which size to get, think about how you want it to fit. If you want the cardigan to lay open and have a sleeker look, I would go for your normal; if you want it to shut with a more modest, loose fit, size up. Still, this cardigan cannot be beat. Awesome quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mel13 I own many!
I own this cardigan in many different colors because it is the perfect weight for spring, summer, and fall. The quality is very high; my only gripe is that this cardigan wrinkles easily, so I often have to give it a quick iron before wearing. Also, I think this cardigan runs small. I am usually an XS in J. Crew Factory (5'3, 110 pounds), but I definitely need a small in this, and there's not much room to spare. I definitely suggest sizing up.

I love the Claire cardigan and own it in three colors. It is high quality for the price, and it holds up well being dry cleaned and keeps its shape between dry cleanings. I highly recommend it.
As for the fit, I get a small, but I am normally an XS or XXS in j.crew t-shirts, and a 0 or 2 in j.crew blazers. I always find the arms a little fitted on these cardigans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anna Great simple cardigan
I have this cardigan in several colors. It's a great piece to wear to work, and I love that it is machine washable, and that they hold up great even after repeated washings. Simple but classic. I usually wear an XXS/XS in shirts and tops but order smalls in these cardigans so that there is a little room to fit over a shirt without being baggy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noelle Great basic, beautiful colors
Great basic piece, fits well, great color selection (I purchased multiple colors) and while I've only had them a little while, the quality seems good so I expect them to hold up well.
I ordered a size up from the size I normally buy for sweaters and shirts at J.Crew and it fits perfectly so if you have a larger bust as I do and don't want it to be super snug, you may want to size up. I usually wear a medium but I bought this sweater in a large.
