I ordered a 2x based on the size chart. The pro is that it is the same soft velvet that the Gilda gown is, and it matches perfectly because of this. The cons: The fit is too big and drapey, there isn't much shape to this cape at all. If you look at the mannequin photo the clasp appears very close together and the fabric on the left touches the fabric on the right. - on my cape there is an inch and a half/2 inch gap between both sides. If you are busty (or not) and you were hoping this cape would help make the gilda gown more demure too bad, the gap in the middle will show off your cleavage. Third con: the clasp is very flimsy and does not stay together very well. I personally hate fidgeting with my clothes so this will be an issue for me. You'll probably have to hide a safety pin behind the clasp or use a bit of adhesive on the clasp to keep it together. I am most likely going to return this asap. I think if they redesign the clasp and fix the gap in the middle to make it like the stock photo I would love it, but at the moment I definitely don't "84 dollars" love it.
