Matalan Boyfriend Cardigan
Author Name: daisylee3
Disadvantages: A waste of money - awful quality
When I visited my mum over the summer, she took me to her local Matalan as it had been refurbished and I stocked up on some wardrobe essentials, one of which was the Boyfriend Cardigan. I paid £8 for this cardigan as it was on offer at the time however it is currently retailing at 14 quid. There are a few different colours available such as khaki, beige, black, grey, etc. I have the beige one which is a lovely shade but unfortunetly it will be going into the bin soon after just a month or so of owning it. Why? Because the quality is hideously bad. I've worn it a handful of times yet it has got holes in, is bobbled, the colour is fading and it's all crinkled up for some bizzare reason (it's been ironed several times and hung up in my wardrobe!) 2 buttons have also come off and it looks tatty and horrible.
The cardi is your average boyfriend cardi - long sleeves, V neck and 5 plastic buttons down the front. It has 2 pockets on the front however these are not secure or deep enough to securely store anything of value in - my iPod has fallen out the one time I attempted to put it in the pocket. It is quite long, as are all boyfriend cardigans and comes just below my bum. It looked nice the first few times I wore it but got tacky and bobbly quickly which was a let down as for £14 I expected better. The material is 50% cotton, 25% viscose, 20% nylon and 5% angora. It was really soft and comfy at first but now it has a strange feel to it. It has also lost its shaping around the hem and waste area - it's all baggy and horrible and I have only washed it a handful of times! On a plus side it has not shrunk.
The cardi is not worth £14 in my opinion - I have got much better quality cardigans from Primark that were £6. I would not reccomend this cardigan as it doesn't last well at all, however if you are interested in getting one then the sizes are 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22. I am a size 8 and found that the size 8 was tight on my arms but loose around my belly which isn't the most flattering fit lol. Overall, not one I would buy again nor reccomend.
