That's true. But those tended to be 'pinup' sweaters, very form-fitting and lightweight, not at all fuzzy. Also dainty little cardigans, often embroidered on the bodice or with lace Peter Pan collars.
The ones I'm talking about are 80s, Dolman or bat-wing sleeves are typical, but the sweaters are so fluffy they look like they could fly away if a stiff breeze came up. I usually comb them or even brush with a dog brush (lightly) to enhance this before taking pictures.
