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!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ldd31 Huge!
I love the color and the potential of the design; however, it was HUGE! I ordered a medium (I often wear a large) and it was big enough for two people. I like loose-fitting clothing but this was ridiculous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenniferlovesJJill I have a kimono sleeve sweater collection going..I love them!!
I love these sweaters. The run super big...I'd recommend ordering down at least a size. I wear a medium to large in other JJill items, and the small in this sweater is still super roomy on me. The knit is very soft and no wool = no itch. With the loose fit and shorter sleeves it's also not too hot!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tutor63 Comfortable fabric and style
This kimono style is a little different but nice with a tank or tee underneath. The fabric is comfortable, soft and easy to wear and washable, too.

This was a great find. I tried on the XL and it was too large.
I was sad not to find a Large. So I tried on a small and it fit.
I am not a small. I will not wear a shirt under it but will
wear a camisole.

I want to wear this every day. I should have purchase it in different colors. A nice lilac maybe.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Saulty Fits my cube-shaped body perfectly
But seriously. This sweater is as wide as it is long. I take a large or medium in JJill tops (never know which to order til I read the reviews. Thanks, everyone!), so I bought this in M. I should have gone for the XS. There were curtains of fabric bunching up under my arms. The neck was sliding off one shoulder, 1980s "She's a Maniac" style. There was enough room for twins, nay, triplets.
I tried to pawn it off on my niece, who likes baggy clothes, but this was way out of her league.
The gray is dark and gorgeous, the fabric is light yet warm, and I'd love to wear a bright long-sleeved shirt under it. But nope. The unflattering shape and impossibly large sizing mean this sweater, with so much potential, is going back. I give it two stars because obviously, it works for some people. And that dark gray is so lovely!

Rated 4 out of 5 by VNdd4ever VERY comfortable
I'm not overwhelmed by the front pocket, but these sweaters (two, different colors) have been a god-send since I broke my shoulder and need things to wear that are easy to get on and off, yet look decently dressed. These just fit the bill - for now, and for when I will no longer 'need' them. A tank underneath, and I'm off!
