I was going to say I fell into the trap of purchasing clothes off Amazon and that I wasted my money, but I’d be lying if I told you that. My mom and I recently purchased several cardigans off of Amazon mostly expecting them to be epic fails but considering the total was $76.50 for 5 cardigans I am happy to say my purchases mainly were successful.
I also didn’t realize how many of the cardigans I bought were what I was pinning on Pinterest or a dupe for the ones on Pinterest. The quality/fabric doesn’t appear that same as what is in some of the pictures, but they were all still wearable.
The original Amazon sellers are no longer available, so these are the same cardigans from a different seller, and so the price is slightly different too.
This was the first one I bought, and I have to say it does seem like the same fabric in this picture. The one I received is a lot longer than the one pictured here which was really surprising to me because I’m 5’11”. Nothing is ever as longer a pictured but I was pleasantly surprised by this one, and it was one of the cheapest.
The first picture is what you first see when you search this cardigan and the second picture is what I’m assuming that inspiration was for the cardigan because you can tell from those two pictures they weren’t the same cardigan. What I received looked like the first picture, and it’s really not a bad purchase just be prepared for an off fabric. I also can’t tell you what the fabric is because there isn’t a tag.
What you will most likely receive is a rather stiff cardigan opposed the what looks like a fabric similar to cotton in the second picture. What I received also is not as long as what is in the picture but again I’m tall and it probably would fit someone shorter a lot better.
This was by far my favorite cardigan purchased because it looks exactly like what is pictured and feels like a regular cardigan. It is lightweight which was expected, but it is also very soft. I think it was so worth the 20-something dollars I spent on this cardigan.
Cardigan 4 (the kind of fail)
I inserted 3 pictures for this one because there are slight variations between these three pictures. When you get to the third picture, this is what you should expect quality wise and mostly pattern wise. Some areas have the grey-blue kind of color seen in the second picture, and some don’t. The person I bought this cardigan from didn’t have the third picture listed, so I didn’t really know what exactly to expect.
Unfortunately, the quality of this one was kind of crap, I had to sew part of it back together, and my seller had no returns apparently. Needless to say, I kept it, and it is still kind of wearable, it’s just not as cute as I had hoped. I also have to cuff the sleeves because it just hits me at a weird place. The length is also way shorter than what is pictured so if you wanted a cardigan to cover your booty I suggest finding another one. I also realized that this was one of the cheapest ones, so I didn’t have high hopes exactly.
This is the last cardigan I purchase and it looks exactly as pictured so I don’t have much to complain about. It was slightly darker that what this one looks like but it still serves it purpose and the quality is similar to that of an American Eagle cardigan.
I hope this helped you all out! I will try and post some pictures of me wearing the cardigans soon, but I just got back to college and my apartment is a wreck! I currently have no where to take the pictures and I also don’t even know where they are at the moment, I think they might still be in the bag in my car.
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
