This sweater is designed so that it will fit and suit any body even if the measurements are not "exact". The only thing you need to pay attention to is the shoulder span and the sleeve circumference. The rest of the sweater is just a circle and will adapt to any body shape, no matter if you have big or small hips, broad shoulders, or even if you're pregnant and showing a big belly!
