What are women's sweaters
Women's sweaters are a whole group of products that differ in several details at once;
- the presence or absence of a zipper (zipper or buttons);
- the presence of a hood;
- collar type;
- many more other details.
However, all these garments still have one common characteristic: they are all quite soft, pleasant to the touch and are made mostly of knitwear or knitted fabric.
In general, all existing options can be very conditionally divided into several categories:
- models with a clasp;
- models without fastener;
- sports options;
- elongated products;
- shortened products.
Women's sweaters with a clasp
Models of clothes with a fastener - one of the most beloved and sought after among the fair sex. Why all? Yes, because such clothes are comfortable to wear and take off, while the risk of spoiling the makeup or hair is completely absent.
Classic sweater.This product is perfectly familiar to women of all ages and it is extremely difficult to confuse it with any other model. A distinctive feature of women's traditional sweaters is the presence of a zipper (zipper or buttons), the length is barely reaching the thigh, and the material is knitted knitwear. In this case, mating can be both large and small. Sweatshirts are quite practical and suitable for many styles of clothing.Depending on her own preferences, a woman can choose a model with a stand-up collar, wide turn-down or just a round neckline.
Jacket.Quite often, a jacket is confused with a regular sweater, and this is understandable. These two models have a lot of common parts (the presence of buttons or zippers, a fairly loose fit). However, the difference between them also exists. It consists mainly of the fact that the jacket has a cutout in the form of a letter V. In some cases, this jacket is made in the form of a jacket.
Sweatshirts for women without fasteners
Such a group of women's sweaters is just as numerous, and the differences between some models can be so insignificant that it can be quite difficult to determine membership in one type or another.
Turtleneck(or golf). This option is a thin sweater loved by women. It is quite comfortable, light and soft, but you can literally make up legends about its ability to blend in with other clothes and styles.

It is noteworthy that the word to sweat (from which the name of the product originated) translates from English to “sweat”.
Pullover.This is a warm knitted sweater without buckles and with a V-neck.
