Is this jumper nice or am I swayed by the price?

I have just received this jumper - silk front, pretty colour and good price but is it a bit plain? It looks ok on but nothing special-not sure it would become a classic staple In
my wardrobe -think I am being taken in more by the 70% Off. Thoughts please.

I’m not keen, but I think I am swayed by the fact I don’t really like the cut of the trousers on the model and it makes the whole thing look too shapeless and bulky confused

I don’t think it looks v nice.
The model has fantastic bone structure but even she can’t make it look nice. It looks like it’s going to show every lump & bump & there is something off with the neck line.

I don't like it. Unflattering shape and sheen.
Looks old-fashioned too.

It's OK in a functional kind of way, but a bit boring. Doesn't go with the trousers the model is wearing. I don't understand why it's described as 'batwing' either!
I think Jigsaw is overpriced anyway, and you've been swayed by the 70% off possibly.

Looks like the model is wearing a tabard!

No and I think unless you are super slim it will show up every lump and bump

Looks like she walked off the set of Star Trek.

No it's not flattering. It doesn't look good on the model.

It's easy to be swayed when it's been massively reduced. I find TK Maxx online difficult to resist.

Thighmageddon Mon 18-May-20 15:56:33

Lumpy I snorted at that comment 😂

I'm not keen Op, it's not a flattering fit for most people.

PatriciaHolm Mon 18-May-20 15:58:35

I don't think the description is that jumper? It doesn't have batwing sleeves and I can't see that it has a dropped back hem either.

LemonBreeland Mon 18-May-20 15:58:46

It's pretty boring. And am I the only one thinking the model needs a decent bra?

unfortunateevents Mon 18-May-20 16:02:44

The second photo is wierd, the model appears to be giving birth to Alien!?

Slave2love Mon 18-May-20 16:03:20

Based on how it looks on the model I wouldnt buy it.

MoltonSilver Mon 18-May-20 16:03:56

If is cold enough for wool then it is too cold for silk. You will always be a combination of too hot and too cold wearing this.

@LumpySpacedPrincessmade -me laugh out loud and yes not far from the truth.
Yes I was swayed and you lot are right. It is fairly plain and dull and it’s going back

How is that batwing?

Tabitha005 Mon 18-May-20 16:18:49

I'm puzzled by Jigsaw's use of the word 'batwing' in the title of this sweater. Clearly, whoever named it didn't live through the 1980s.

It looks a tad drab to me.

HugeBowlofChips Mon 18-May-20 16:34:52

I don't think it's boring. I love the colour. I think it could work well as a foil to other more attention-grabbing pieces e.g with a better trouser (the ones on the model are bad beyong belief), and some really good boots. But the high neck and strange shape means it's not going to flatter many people. I also suspect the silky fabric would show every lump and bump. You'd need a smooth bra.

Can we see a photo of it on you?

peaceanddove Mon 18-May-20 16:52:21

My general rule of thumb is that if a professional model can't make something look good then us mere mortals have no chance. Though the model does need a bra intervention!

shookbelves Mon 18-May-20 16:56:40

It's horrid (sorry) and I really dislike that particular colour as well.

Ingridla Mon 18-May-20 16:57:02

It's a no from me, and batwing? It really isn't!

JustHereWithMyPopcorn Mon 18-May-20 17:22:46

I love the colour and I know that colour would suit me but the model looks awful in it (definitely needs a different bra!) and if those were the best shots then it's going to look like a dogs dinner on my lumpy body!!

It’s a bit to shiny for my taste.
