Perfect addition to my wardrobe!Review by Malice

Fit and Comfort
I bought this Bolero when I purchased my Gilda dress. Having lost quite a bit of weight, I am sometimes self conscious about my arms. However most wraps or jackets really detract from armless dress/top. However, this is the best wrap I've ever owned. I didn't feel like I was "hiding" anything, I felt like it enhanced with the dress. It is somewhat shiny and a dressier option for me. It is what my dress needed. I had read some of the reviews about size, plus the bolero was only available in a small. I normally wear medium in PUG clothes. I ordered the small and very glad I did! It has a good amount of stretch but the small wasn't too tight. A perfect fit. Medium would have been too big. I'm so excited to have such a perfect addition to my wardrobe! (Posted on 2/22/2015)

Of any piece I wear from Pinup Couture, this is the one I wear the most. I have worn it exactly as the model pictured above with red hair and the Vamp Zebra Stripe Dress, and with many sleeveless dresses. The fabric is nice and soft, and it isn`t constricting on the arms. This little bolero is a lifesaver for my wardrobe, and one of the best purchases I`ve made for the quality and price. (Posted on 9/16/2014)
Runs big, hangs off the shouldersReview by Helen Alice

I'll say this, it looks great on the model.
I sent it back.
I should have read the fabric info more closely, I didn't expect it to be so shiny.
It runs big.
Even when I exchanged it for a size smaller, it tends to slope off the shoulders because of the "open" front.
Other than that.... please redesign this because I love the 3/4 sleeves and how it lets you wear a bare dress or top in more conservative settings. (Posted on 8/17/2014)

i really wish i could love this bolero. it's cut in a similar style to a vintage bolero i have, but had this one been made in the early 50s, it would not survive until today.

the first thing: it bleeds like you wouldn't believe, and not just in the wash. i made the mistake of wearing it for the first time with my ridley gingham top, and i sweated a little under the arms. when i got home, i found that my sweat had formed an unholy union with the black dye and turned the armpits purple. bummer! there was nothing i could do to save my ridley top, but i did wash the bolero about 5 times before wearing it with something light-colored again, and it still bled! double bummer.

on top of this, the first time i washed it, it started pilling. i never put my PUG garments in the dryer, and i wash on the gentle cycle. i have to agree that this is a pretty low-quality fabric, and it's cost me a pretty penny in terms of the tops it ruined...

but that said, i still wear it all the time when i'm wearing black. i have it in the xs, and it fits great. i'm a tall, lythe girl at 5'9" and 32-24-33. it's cropped, but not too short despite my height. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
Gorgeous Alternative to the Bad Girl BoleroReview by Bethany

I own and love the Bad Girl Bolero, but find myself feeling uncomfortable after wearing it in the office all day to ward off the chill of winter day's. This is a perfect alternative, offering complete flexibility and ease of wear. Given how thin the material is, I would say it's not worth the full $48, but this could be from my lack of understanding of clothes manufacturing. None of Pinup Girl Clothing's items have disappointed me in quality yet, and I feel that year's from now, this piece will be no exception. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

This coverup goes great with any of my dresses I own, especially pinup ones of course. The price is a bit high, but I have already worn it multiple times. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
Must-Have, even if it's a bit expensive!Review by Ker

For women who have that little bit of fleshy tissue by the underarms they want covered, but don't want to ruin the line of a lovely bodice, this item is perfect! It's also perfect for women with thick arms that are not as firm as they once were. Very comfortable, doesn't restrict movement at all. It beautifully hides those parts we don't want to show, while accentuating all the good stuff. On me, (5' 8.5") it hangs just the right length, meaning it doesn't cover any of the breast area, just the underarm. Due to the way it hangs, it's especially flattering to a pear type figure because draws the eye horizontally across the top of the body, but doesn't cover so much that it visually narrows the bodice. It does run large. I'm a 2x in pretty much all PUG house brands and XL fit me perfectly in this, so most people should order a size down from their regular size. Although I find it to be a bit expensive for a small piece of cloth, I gave a 5 stars for value because it can be worn with all those things sitting in the closet that don't fit so nicely around the armhole or upper arm area anymore, bringing new life to them. One o f my very favourite PUG purchases! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
