I usually wear an XXL, ordered a 2X as I thought it would be nice if it was a bit big and I could wrap it around me to keep me warm. Not so! it's made really small, it barely meets in the middle, I could have worn a 3X in it. It's a nice sweater just not very thick, not as warm as I wanted. I like the design, but if I had known I would have ordered the 3X. I am keeping it to wear at home, just wish it was thicker. I hope it doesn't shrink when I wash it. If you're looking for a cardigan that's not too thick, then I would recommend it, just order a size or two up.
