I hate polyester but made an exception because I love the color, the detail and the style. The body is full, the fabric is very fine and lightweight; the styling is fun and can go from casual to special occasion. The sleeves were a bit long and have been tailored.

    I contemplated getting this top due to some of the negative reviews, went with my gut and love of hard to find dark navy items...and so glad I did!!! What an unusual find!!! Looks like a boutique piece to me...just pair it with a belt or multiple belts to match your engagement, mood, outfit...jeans and boots...leggings and shooties...white sateen pants and navy silk sandals...or middle of the road chain...casual to evening...with or without a lacy cami...this shimmery little number is a WOW! I did have to buy 2 sizes up, as that was all that was available....again...well placed belts draws this little number up into a refined looking tunic for many sizes and shapes!

    This coat had a lot of volume and not very flattering. As another review stated it is very flimsy fabric and not nice enough to wear to a nice occasion. I am sending it back as I am not smart enough to figure out how to wear this!

    • This follows the U.S. Women's sizing. So a size 1 (8-10), is a women's U.S. 8.-10. You can view our general sizing charts at this link: .
