Women's Boiled Wool Best Vest
Great gift: Mom & Mother-in-law both love it!
I bought one red and one blue vest in a size "L" for my mom AND my mother in law (both of whom wear a 12/14) for Christmas this past year and both women LOVED the gifts. The vest is not a heavyweight boiled wool, it is light. For these women "of a certain age" lighter is better, because sweaters in general can make them too hot. This is a great layering piece that keeps their core warm without making them overheat. Thus they both declared the light weight to be perfect (one lives in Idaho, the other in Virginia), and I've seen them wear it over a cotton ribbed turtleneck (on cooler days) and a pretty blouse (for a dressier look). The slight princess seaming on the sides offers a pretty shape without being tight. They both have ample bosoms and the toggle was in the right place in front for a flattering 'wrap'. 'll be back for more colors for next year! Maybe one for me!

The fit is good, a bit "easy" because it will always be over another article of clothing. The colors are rich and vibrant and the toggle fastener is very appropriate to the vest. I had hoped that the vest would be a little heavier than it is. I bought several as Christmas gifts for granddaughters, daughters-in-law and my sister.

Fit is true to size.
Looks very nice and slimming, great with a print top.

A nice gift
I really like the color and although I would not buy myself anything woolen it will look nice layered.

The red is beautiful. Disappointed in the fit, the armpits were huge. I bought it on sale and it was close to the holidays, so I had the armpits altered instead of returning. Probably should have returned after the cost of alteration.

I ordered this vest in teal. It is a gorgeous color and just what I was looking for to match some items in my wardrobe. The material is thinner than I expected, but it's still OK and I will enjoy wearing it for years to come.
