I'd like to provide an honest review for those who are in the plus size range. As someone who wears size 18/20, I waited for a while to make this purchase, hoping to find a review from someone in a similar size range. Despite not finding one, I decided to go ahead and buy it. First and foremost, I must say that it's a beautiful piece, and I absolutely adore the color and the quality of the craftsmanship.
However, I did have a couple of minor concerns. Firstly, the cuffs were a tad tight on my forearms. They fit snugly, and while they didn't completely cut off circulation or make my hands tingly, they were quite close. If you're sensitive to this sensation, these jackets might not be the best choice for you. On the flip side, if you enjoy the feeling of compression, then you might actually appreciate these cuffs.
Secondly, I was expecting a bit more fabric in the front of the jacket. After doing some research, I realized that the model on the website is small/medium-sized, which explains why the jacket drapes differently on her. Without the ability to upload a photo, let me describe that the jacket covered my chest area adequately, but my belly button and stomach area were completely exposed. Personally, I can work around this because I tend to overheat easily. However, if you're hoping for the jacket to hang and drape similarly to how it does on the model, this "One Size" option might not provide the fit you desire, especially if you're a plus size individual.
Would I purchase this item again? Probably not without an upgraded size. However, I am content with my purchase as it is, and I have no intention of returning it!
It's absolutely gorgeous!! The fabric is luxurious, the sleeves are extra long for my Amazon girl figure and it is now one of my favorite pieces in my collection. You actually have me wearing something besides black!!!
