    Promising review: "Love this sweater! Normally I have to buy a 3X because of the way sweaters hang, but this one hangs great on me because it's actually oversized. It's long enough to wear with leggings and doesn't bulk up in the wrong places. Very comfy, and warm enough for my chilly office. The V-neck isn't too deep." —Snugglygirl

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (S–XXL, 12 colors).

    Promising review: "Can't say enough good things about this one! LOVE this hoodie. It is so soft, not too thick, but sturdy and soft. It feels well-made and of higher quality than a lot of my clothing purchases on Amazon. The colors are beautiful and the fit is great. It is a little longer than most hoodies and so the pocket falls BELOW my trouble tummy spot and in doing so disguises the little tummy pooch. I felt pretty and comfy in this sweatshirt!" —Holly J.

    6. A cozy sweater featuring ruffled sleeves you'll want to order in every color and wear all season long.
