I had no interest in this sweater from the pic online... it looked too "bat wingy", but a salesperson suggested I give it a shot. I did and loved it. The " wings" are nowhere near as prominent as in the picture and the sweater sits nicely without clinging to my stomach (hooray!). It is easy to dress up or wear casual and is not to heavy for ladies who get hot. I love it so much I will buy another one!
