To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The material is very thin and lightweight, great for summer. It has a very good stretch. It can easily catch on things as you are walking by them. If it does catch you can put it back in shape again because of the good stretch.
I bought this shrug 5 or 6 years ago in Thailand. Wished I had purchased more and in additional colors. I have looked far and wide for this in the U.S., and finally found it on Amazon, sold by Back from Bali! I was thrilled and proceeded to buy multiple colors, plus a couple of extra as presents for friends!
First and foremost - it truly is "one size fits all." It expands/fits to your body size due to the fact that it is a loose knit. I would say it fits up to a size 14, maybe even a 16, just fine, as well as a size 4-6 on the small side.
This is the BEST piece of clothing I own. It fits wonderfully, can be washed in the washing machine (place inside a laundry "net"), can be bunched up and won't wrinkle, and provides a light layer of warmth for those occasions when you just need "a little something." And it's sooo lightweight that you can take it with you anywhere without lugging around a heavy sweater. It even fits in my small evening purses.
What I truly love about the shrug is that it doesn't alter or hide whatever you are wearing. Sweaters tend to completely hide your cute outfit that you painstakingly thought out. The shrug just enhances it! I use it for work events when I need to wear a black cocktail dress. I also use it a lot during summer evenings with my sundresses and/or sleeveless blouses.
Seriously - I'm not joking when I tell you that this is my favorite piece of clothing! You will love it if you buy it!
I ordered white and coral. After reading the reviews, I was a bit worried about the fit. I wear an XL or, depending on the cut, either a 14 or 16 shirt and am a 38D bra size. These absolutely are sufficiently large enough and I don't have any problem tying if I want to. They are not tight anywhere on me, including the arms. They are very delicate as it is a very open weave, so I do anticipate special care, however, I don't mind this because they are exactly what I wanted to wear over sleeveless summer dresses. I will be ordering more colors.
This item came super fast. Upon opening the package you see this tiny little bunch of fabric,but slip it on and voila! Perfect fit and coverage! I have large arms and chest (42DD) so I'm always concerned about how the arms will fit and if the middle tie will stay below my chest or ride up. This material is super stretchy, and the arms fit great,and the shrug tie stayed where I wanted it. My only negative is that the seams of arm holes aren't so flexible and although not tight on me would have liked just a smidgen more give. I normally wear a xxl-1x and this fit perfect. Would order again, will fit in carryon without wrinkles and go with everything for my tropical vacation without giving me heatstroke!
