Susan Graver Ponte Knit Bolero with 3/4 Ruched Sleeves
LOVE LOVE LOVE
THIS IS MY SECOND KNIT BOLERO..I NORMALLY DON'T WRITE REVIEWS BUT DECIDED TO, BECAUSE READING THE REVIEWS HELPED ME DECIDE TO PURCHASE THEM AND THE CORRECT SIZE. THANK YOU EVEREYONE FOR YOUR INPUT.
I just received this item and tried it on immediately. It exceeds my expectations. I checked the garment measurements before ordering and sized down. Perfect fit! And I love the fabric and construction. I wanted a true red shrug and this is it. A SG winner!
This shrug runs huge, and it hangs funny. Made me look too granny-ish. Material is too heavy for summer. I usually wear a large but ordered medium after reading the reviews, and it was still too big on me. I exchanged for a small, but it still hung funny on me. Too boxy and frumpy. My husband did not like either , he said "RETURN"
Great Shrug! However...
This is a very nice shrug, but I would say it doesn't run large; it runs huge! I am between 1X and 2X, depending on the brand. Based on reviews saying the item runs quite large, I ordered two XL shrugs. They were beautiful, but they were really big; I would have felt kind of "sloppy" in them. Exchanged for a size large, and they are perfect. However, two shrugs with shipping came to over $98, so I'm not quite sure about the value. I'm keeping them, but I think it's possible to find just as nice a product for less money from other sources; for instance, Lane Bryant.
I just love this bolero. It is so comfortable, fits perfect, wears
well and the quality of the fabric is great! I highly recommend
this item. All of Susan Gravers' items are great! She always
has a good selection of clothing. I purchased this bolero in
Scarlet Red and this color goes well with most of my maxi
dresses and other outfits.
Perfect in every way
I love this bolero. The size is true to size. The color red, which I bought, is a deep red. I really love this color. This will be a good summer sweater. I highly recommend this bolero and it comes in a multitude of colors.
I bought two of these boleros and am very happy with them! They are a little longer than a shrug which is what I wanted. I washed them in the "gentle" cycle to take out the wrinkles when I got them. They came out of the dryer so nicely!!!!! I'm waiting for more colors in my size.
This is hands down by favorite Jacket, perfect for my maxi dresses and other outfits for the summer.
Way Way better than any other bolero/shrug I have
I really love this bolero. It is long enough to cover the back fat, short enough to give the illusion of a waist, loose enough in the sleeves to go over my short sleeve T's. All in all, a great cut, a great style. Am going to order more, and donate my older shrugs and boleros to charity. Susan, this one is a winner!!!!!
This is the prettiest bolero ! I ordered it in large navy and am very happy with both fit and color. Wish I needed more colors but I dont. I have had really good luck with this brand and like Susan Graver a lot. Looking forward to much use from this. Her things are my " I dont know what to wear, oh, yeah, I have that Susan Graver" whatever.
I ordered this bolero in light blue. It is generously cut and can be worn dressed up or down. Although I sized up, I will order my regular size (large) for the next color (wheat)!
The shaping is right on; more generous than similar toppers. It gives the illusion of a smaller waist and covers the bodice rather than just my underarms. I wear it with maxi dresses and tank tops and slacks.
This bolero stayed on my wish list a long time. I hesitated to order it because of the price. But have found I wear it often so I feel justified in my purchase. Go ahead, ladies; order yours, you'll like it.
Great with sleeveless dress
I purchased this bolero in the wheat color to go with the wheat sleeveless ponte knit dress. I'm going to an outside wedding in May in FL, so I can remove the bolero for the outside part and wear it for the reception. I like the length of the sleeves, the length of the bolero (a bit longer than customary), the soft fabric, and the ruching details. I don't yet know if I will wear it with anything else. I don't think it is as versatile as a lightweight sweater but it is perfect for what I wanted. Heed the size warnings in the other reviews. I normally wear an XL, but I ordered a L and it fits perfectly.
