I bought this jumper from asos recently and absolutely love it. The jumper is available in either the asos petite range or the main asos collection, although in the asos petite range it is only available in one colour - mustard (with black horses). In the main collection it is also available in pale blue (also with black horses). Sizes in both ranges are 6-18.
I have this jumper in mustard, which is a lovely shade that goes with pretty much any outfit. It has black horse silhouettes all over it (front, back, arms). The horses are varied in design - some are stood normally and some are in the upright prancing position. The detail is really good and the stitching on each horse is neat and accurate. The design of the top is very Topshop, but ofcourse it's much cheaper - this jumper is £35, while a similar Topshop one costs £45. Some people may prefer paying that bit more for the Topshop brand but I can honestly say that this jumper despite been a little cheaper is really good quality and looks great, i've even had people ask me if it's from Topshop so the quality obviously shows to others aswell.
As I said before sizes available are 6-18. I am a size 8 (but can fit into generous 6's) and initially got a size 8 but it felt uncomfortably tight, which I was suprised by, so I returned it and got a size 10, which is very well fitting and not very generous at all - it's very clingy especially around my waist and hips, and it's also well fitted on the arms although because i'm only a size 8 and got a size 10 the arms are a little baggy at the top, but luckily it's not noticeable enough to make me feel self concious.
The top isn't very long, with high waisted jeans or hotpants it comes quite a bit below the waistband and with normal jeans it comes slightly below the waistband. It's not classed as a crop jumper though. Despite the short length I don't worry it about riding up and exposing my belly because it's so well fitting and because it has a ribbed waistband which helps it to stay in place in my opnion. The sleeves are also ribbed. Asos class the sleeves as 'bracelet sleeves' which I assume means the same as ribbed?! The length of the sleeves is slightly cropped, they're around 2-3 inches above my wrists which I am not really keen on as I am self concious of scars on my wrists, but it's still a nice jumper which (as you can see from the picture) can be layered over the top of a shirt for a smart, layered look, which I will be doing in the chillier weather.
The jumper is 100% Combed Cotton, and much softer than usual cotton. It feels almost like fleece and it's extremely warm despite the jumper been lightweight. I love wearing it as it feels so cosy and comforting - it feels like wearing a smart looking pyjama top. The jumper is versatile but I find it goes best with high waisted shorts or jeans, as with normal jeans I don't think the jumper makes my stomach area look very slim for some reason where as with high waisted jeans it seems to define me a bit more and balance me out.
Overall a really nice and soft jumper which feels and looks high quality - it is well worth £35. Beware of the sizing though as the jumper's not very generous - if you want it a little baggy for the oversized look i'd reccomend getting 2-3 sizes bigger than your true size.
