Someone once told me that I got ripped off. They told me this when I was wearing a crop top. I was only wearing half a top in their eyes. I suppose I may have gotten ripped off when I bought this sweater as well. After all, it really is only half a sweater. It barely covers my boobs when it is on by itself. I had to test this out knowing that I would be wearing it with a tank underneath. What is the allure of the cropped sweater? I would say that the allure of this one is the extra long sleeves, ribbed material, and the way it comes up just a little more in the front than in the back. We may never know why we allow ourselves to get ripped off for fashion, but maybe we don't want to know.
