Rated 2 out of 5 by shelby0205 Boxy fit and super short
I'm 5'3" 125 lbs and got this sweater in a small, my usual J Crew size. The sweater is gorgeous but so so short. It barely comes to my hip bones and the sleeves barely come to my wrists. Normally, being shorter, sleeves are much too long for me. The sweater is soft but just not a good fit. If you're shorter, maybe it would work but if you want a nice, normal length sweater this isn't for you. My hunt for a good fair isle sweater continues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lexyterzo Runs small, size up
I am always a size small at J.Crew Factory. This sweater has a shorter torso and arms than usual. I'd size up unless you want to have 3/4 leave sleeves instead of long sleeves and to have to keep pulling the front down over your undershirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Msanch07 Christmas in a sweater
I love winter because I can bring out my fair isle sweaters, I especially love J crew and J crew factory's fair isle sweaters. I read the previous reviews on this sweater... It is a little short but not a ridiculous amount, I think in general I like the size of Jcrews sweater they all kind of fit right at my hips. I thought it was a little boxy, but it gives me that more comfort feel because of it. The colors are great, it really does remind me of that red that everyone loves to wear around Christmas time, but it's also very feminine. I paired this with the multi pearl necklace, and it looks AMAZING.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nelly Comfortable sweater
I got the small (I'm 5'3" ~120lbs). I have a similar factory fair isle sweater in grey and it is the most comfortable thing to throw on top in the winter. It's a little more snug in some areas but not exactly curve-hugging (maybe the "boxy" fit someone else was describing). That's the style I wanted with this sweater - comfortable and warm!
*You do have to handwash this sweater because of the knit, a little inconvenient, but it stays nice.
