    'N Ander het gesê: ‘I normally purchase a medium or large for Shein sweaters because I like an oversized fit. DAZY usually fits small, but the large was the right size for oversized. I could have gone for a medium for a more fitted look.

    ‘The colour is less gray/white and more of a beige with yellow tones. The buttons are nice. It looks more expensive than it is, so a good buy! I would purchase in different colours
