  • Your sweater shouldn’t be too tight, you shouldn’t feel cramped.
  • Finally, the sleeves of your sweater should end at the level of your wrist bone.

The size

The ideal size for a sweater is neither too tight nor too loose, to ensure a flawless look.

You won’t wear your sweater without another piece underneath. Therefore, when shopping, try on sweaters, always carrying something with you, such as a shirt, to get an idea. Choosing a sweater that is too large will be inelegant and the space between the fabric and your body will allow the cold to pass through.

The shoulder seams should fall over the acromion, your shoulder bone. If these protrude or stop before then the sweater is not in your size and will not put you to your advantage. A sweater of the correct length should go just below the waistband and reach roughly the top of your buttocks.
