Rated 4 out of 5 by lemonysnick not what I expected...cardinal is not red!
I love the kimono sweaters and this is my third. The other kimonos are very flattering so I had great expectations for this sweater. It was not what I expected. First, I wanted a red sweater and this is not red. It's maybe reddish. I would call it a dull marrichino cherry or a medium pink. The color is fine but not a cardinal red. Second, this sweater is huge or very wide and short. I wish i washed it before wearing...it did shrink a little and that helped. The neckline is wide and deep plus it does not stay closed and flops open often. Definitely wear a shirt under. I ordered this 2 sizes smaller than my usual size i could have ordered a s or xs but then it would be so much shorter. Excellent material inspite of sizing and color.

Ridiculously oversized. There is no shaping to this garment - unless you consider a square to be a desirable shape for clothing. I normally wear a large - maybe a small would have fit properly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mel411 Not like the picture
It was huge! I loved the picture, but when I got it it fell off my shoulders - just way too wide. Sadly it's going back

I think my daughter chose this one to give to her sister for Christmas, but she tried it on and loved it, she is my size, 5'4", 174 lbs , medium build, a medium fit perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by plw15 HUGE!
I have this in black and love it - knew to order a much smaller size from the reviews. I did that again with this one and there was no way I could wear it. Had to return it. I had ordered a Medium instead of a large/xl - It was not later in and made me look much larger than I am. You'll be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tisi lovely fabric and style
I ordered one size smaller for this item after reading other reviews. It fits perfectly and is a beautiful, soft bluish grey color that goes with so many things. I own two other tops in a similar style, and the crossover feature on this one is a welcome change.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bibiannw This sweater is HUGE!
Lovely sweater, but thank goodness I used the chat option and asked question. From other customers' reviews I was going to order 2 sizes smaller (I usually wear XL, being "blessed" on top.) Well I got the representative to give me the size for med... and it was too big. So was the Small. I ended up ordering the XS.... yes, the EXTRA SMALL. I was told the dimensions were 50 inches at Bust... for an EXTRA SMALL. I never thought I'd ever be able to order an XS in my lifetime.
So yes I do recommend this sweater, but know your size and chat with a customer representative. It's worth the time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jammie Sizing way off.
First of all, I normally wear a small in J.Jill tops. That being said, after reading reviews of the obi kimono being large, I felt safe going down to an xsmall. BIG mistake. And I really mean BIG. The xsmall could have passed for an xlarge........not kidding. It was super wide. The length was fine, but, there was no way to belt it and look and feel comfortable in it. Also, I ordered two different colors. In the past, I bought a similar looking kimono top which I adored and foolishly thought this was the same top. J.Jill do you still have the cute, perfect fitting top I am referring to? Please warn buyers about the incorrect sizing. We have to pay shipping to send them back!!!
