Apparent they're going to be big this autumn / winter
Is it a big thumbs up or a massive no?

Depends on your shape, I'd say. smile

Thin fitted sweater or baggy/thick?
Or is it all types?

I like them, especially the slouchy cashmere roll neck ones

I love them. Can't wear my usual staples (mostly wool & silk mix from Cos or chunky wool from Whistles) because I'm breastfeeding this year but I've just bought a lovely slouchy black roll neck one from Mothercare.

I think they add too much bulk at the waist to pears and hourglasses, but often very good on apples.

I think they look cool but find them impossible to wear in the office, shops or pubs. What do you do when there's heating on high?

I love them and bought a few last year. I feel about 6 years old again when wearing one with woolly tights grin.

I haven't seen any, do you have any links?

Sainsbury's Tu had some great ones in

Yes, but thin knit and not roll neck. All that heat around my neck and face would make me spontaneously combust.

I like wearing mine with opaque tights and high wedge ankle boots.

I haven't had one in years, decades even. After siting, standing and moving around for the day they used to go out of shape and look like a sack of potatoes. Are there new fabrics that stop them going out of shape?

Some are nicer than others of course, but I generally love them.

I want to get a jumper dress but my waist is virtually non existent at the moment, so I think I'm going to have to avoid. Some of them are lovely though. I suppose it could work with a fitted cardigan or a belt with my figure.

I like them but struggle with the right shoes/boots. I have very thick calves so they look terrible with ankle boots and I don't have any good longer length boots either anymore.
