Too lovely to be so disappointing
on June 27, 2013
First I will sayover the past 15 months I'have purchased 6 shrugs 5 came from PacificPlex and were wonderful. The picture does this color blue no justuce it absolutely a beautiful shade of satin blue, almost like midnight and the movement in the fabric provides the right amout of shimmer. Well made and an elegant look if you were a size 12 maybe 14 you'd be angelic in the the 3X and feel quite beautiful however if you were a 3X you'd be fuming. I wear a 16 I am almost 5'11 and athletically built. I normally purchase a 2X in the little boleros, just because of their cut, reading the reviews indicating this runs a little smaller I ordered a 3X, OMG they totally missed the mark on this one. because the cut is so narrow it fits my arms but is so tight does not sit on my shoulders the shoulder sleeves are 1" above the actual shoulders like there are high puffed up shoulder pads in there. it comes nowehere neaeyour sides or fron as pictured in your picture. I believe its the gathers, which give it a beautiful look but the gathering requires you have more fabric. This is an unbelievably poor cut and such a perfect shade for the beautiful Monsoon Womens Allessandra Maxi dress I ordered. The 3x woud be a good fit for a regular 14 so proportionally I guess the 2x is a 12 etc. It you are a true plus size don't bother with this beautiful little lovely it'll just cost you more in return shipping if you like things fitted or are 16 & below you will not be disappointed, vibrant color, well made standup collar...You'll be fabulous!
