With the cold weather upon us I recently decided to stock up on some warmer clothes. I love the Kays catalogue (also online at www.kays.com) and quite often browse and make orders online especially.
I decided to invest in a few jumpers and loving the look of this batwing jumper decided to order two of them, one in back and one in magenta (a pink colour). There was also a chartreuse (yellow) but to be honest I didn't like the look of that one and am generally not a fan of yellow.
What sold me on this was not only the appearance of the garment online but also that it is on offer reduced at the moment with it usually being sold at £20.00 but reduced to £10.00 hence me buying 2 for the price of what one would normally cost me.
This comes in sizes 8/10, 12/14, 16/18. 20/22, 24/26, and a size 28 so large sizes are available and all cost the same!
It is made from Acrylic and is machine washable. It isn't meant to be tumble dried but I do with mine (on a low heat setting) and they have been fine and haven't gone bobbly or anything adverse.
The style of this jumper is of course batwing so it has very wide arms that are slightly cuffed just below the elbow. It has a not very deep v neck to the front of, below that like a box of stitching that gives little soft pleats now the front of the jumper. There is a cuff to the bottom of it which is meant to sit against you tightly which is slightly ribbed as are the ones on the arms and the back is completely plain.
The style of this I rather like and don't have an issue with at all. However the feel of it on is rubbish. Made from acrylic it is thin and feels cheap against my skin. It doesn't iron nicely and I find mine too way to baggy though I'm a size 10 and ordered the 8/10 and I don't mean around the arms but the shoulders and the waist band are too big making the jumper baggy and away from my body at the back of it making me look huge in shape, things I never noticed as I never tried them on, I just kept them till I wore them.
They wash ok and haven't gone any more baggy and have certainly not faded over time but to me, these feel cheap and the material looks that way too! Not for me and I only wear mine indoors and in private.
Not recommended from me at all.
Only available from Kays.
