Aqua is a Bloomingdales house brand that sometimes runs pretty small, and is geared toward a teenage/early 20′s market. It’s cheaper than other Bloomingdales brands, and is cut to fit a slimmer frame. I usually walk right past the Aqua department because the fabric contents are less than what I’m looking for, but I got sucked into their cashmere department over the weekend and found this little number. Look at how cropped and shrunken it looks on this tall model!
And here it is on 4’11″ me in size XS! I love cropped silhouettes, they usually fit me normally! This sweater has a more relaxed fit, but I’m sure it’ll shrink a little bit when I wash and hang dry it, which should make it a bit more fitted. If you have a longer torso, then this sweater might be a bit short, but it’s worth a look!
This sweater also fit pretty small, but was not my particular taste, so I don’t have any fit modeling pictures.
This sweater was too baggy on me, but if you’re about 1 size bigger than I am, it should be a great fit and comes in a variety of colors. I wish it fit smaller because I’d love to stock up on cashmere cardigans in every color!
