I am 5’ 1”. I weigh 155 pounds. My bust is 42” (36 DD). My waist is 37”. My hips are 43”. I am very curvaceous. I have a short torso. I am usually between a size medium & large. When this Ellen cardigan first came out, I purchased a size medium initially. As that’s usually my size in all of Egi’s pieces. However the size medium was WAY too small. It did not reach across my chest. It just covered my arms & back. That’s it❗️I was not able to close the cardigan, in the front at all. I exchanged it for a size large. And it was a MUCH better fit. I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cardigan. I have it in 3 colors. It does run very small. I almost was going to exchange it for an XL. But I am short. So I know the sleeves would’ve been too long. And the length would most likely be too long as well. If you like your cardigans to be oversized, I would suggest going up 2 sizes in the Ellen cardigan. This cardigan feels amazing on & looks amazing❣️The quality & colors by Egi are unmatched. It’s not heavy either. And my hot flashes thank you Egi 😆 You can dress up the cardigan. Or dress it down. I also love that the cardigan is not cumbersome, yet warm.
