Note on sizing:
This sweater is designed so that it will fit and suit your body even if the measurements are not “exact”. The only thing you need to pay attention to is to your shoulder span and the sleeve circumference. The rest of the sweater is just a circle and will adapt to your body shape.
If you are choosing between 2 sizes, I would advise you choose the bigger one.
