For reference, you're looking down at the back of the sweater, the gray band at the bottom of the picture is the waist band. If you look closely, you'll find that the left arm hole and the right armhole are cut differently. The left side fits comfortably because there is 18 inches of fabric between the armhole and the waist band. In contrast, the right side only has a mere 7 inches between armhole and waist band. As such, when you lift your right arm, your movement is restricted. If you lift your arm too high, the waist band will lift, exposing your stomach. Many reviewers have pointed out this weird right-arm situation.
I really like the cowl neck, which I find very flattering for small-chested women. I also love the asymmetrical modern style (tres Japonais!). Unlike horizontal stripes, the diagonal stripes do not widen your figure. The orange and gray color scheme go with denim or white.
The pros: cowl neck, asymmetric design, cotton/linen (hand wash)
The cons: weird right arm
The verdict: I can deal with the right arm for the sake of fashion. A keeper!
