I am 5' 1". I weigh 160 pounds. My bust is 42" (36 DD). My waist is 37". My hips are 43" I have a short torso. I am usually between a size medium and large (8-10). About 95% of the time, I get a size medium from ByEgreis. Unless Egi advises to size up due to stretch and bust size. In this case, I ordered this cardigan in a size medium. Its a perfect fit. I also have it in the mint color. The material is soft, not itchy. Love how feminine the pink color is. Perfect for the upcoming spring weather! The buttons are so GORGI too! It has diamonds all around the pearls. You do have to be careful though, because the material of the sweater gets snagged on those diamonds. So you have to be gentle putting the buttons through. I love the way Egi always cuts her clothes. It accentuates the body parts you want accentuated. But it hides those problem areas you may have.
