Hi all! I recently bought this beautiful sweater and it's made of Merino Wool. (no I wouldn't even attempt this one yet!)
So first I bought the medium and I was drowning in it, returned it for the small. Well to me the small still seems a tad big, but I'm not drowning by any means in it. So I bought an x-small just to compare the 2 and while it is a bit more snug in the bum area, the rest of it fits perfectly.
Now I am in the process of losing 10 pounds (lets all say a prayer it works!) so I think once that happens the xsmall will fit perfectly and I hardly ever close my sweaters.
But here's my main question after all of that mindless babbling, it requires dry cleaning, has anyone ever had anything shrink when they took it to the cleaners?? I think the last time I went to a dry cleaner it was for my wedding dress and that was 10 years ago!!
So what should I do?? Keep the small or risk the chance of shrinkage and go for the x-small??
BTW, anything that I own that requires dry cleaning I usually hand wash, but this is a beautiful sweater so I'm a little leary of doing that AND I'm even more leary of taking it to the cleaners!! What if they ruin it??
What a dilemma, hey?
