A204045 - Janie Bryant MOD Faux Fur Fully Lined Capelet
Because there were no specific chest measurements on this capelet, I ordered each one in two different sizes so I would be sure to get one that fit. Tried both the 1X and 2X and neither size fit. They were both too tight in the shoulders and the slits for the arms were way off. Sending them all back tomorrow. I have purchased other items of hers and have been very satisfied but these were a big let down.
Very Nice Cape
I purchased the lynx in size L. since the Med. was no longer available! I normally wear M or L in a Denim and co item, depending on whether the top is 100% cotton. I am 38B bust, that being said the shoulders seams curve out a little past my actual shoulder edge but that 's with a light weight top on. I think with a winter sweater on it will be fine. The fur is very nice and soft similar to my lynx jacket from Dennis Basso. It is not a heavy weight cape just the fur and satin lining, no filler in between these two layers. I thought the arm slits were just fine for me. Nice at this price!
Oh my... do I look like a lady of luxury or a Hollywood starlet in this gorgeous capelet! I ordered this in the lynx and it looks like a million bucks! I'm very pleased with this product because it is both pretty and comfortable.
The fur is nice and good quality. However, the fit is awkward and the slits are oddly positioned which makes it not attractive to wear. Will be sending it back.
I really did like this cape...no problem with shoulder fit, armhole placement or quality.
The fur hooks, however, were very difficult to use. I had to feel around the fur blindly for ten minutes when I received it to figure them out. I had never seen these sorts of hooks before on fur. Maybe it's just me. I thought it would be too much trouble to deal with these hooks
every time I left a restaurant or went outside.
Very chic but not perfect
I got this in the leopard. I ordered it on Friday and received on Tuesday (fast shipping!). It's beautiful. The quality of the faux fur is top notch although it seems a little more ragged around the collar? That might have to do with the direction of the fibers though and not the quality.
I ordered down a size after reading the reviews and because I'm always promising myself to lose a little weight :) It *just * fits. I agree with everyone about the placement of the holes being weird. They are just too low. But that's not a deal breaker for me because I may not use them but just wear it as a true cape. I also tried it slung over my shoulder and slipped one arm through (to pose with my hand on my hips) and that works too.
It's VERY elegant. I feel like a 50s starlet. All I need are opera length gloves to complete the look. This cape will work well with a dressy outfit or jeans. I'm not 100% decided if I will keep it or not but I definitely like it and think it's worth a look.
This thing is amazing!
Great cape! It would be great over a dress for evening wear as well as with jeans on a cold day. Soo cute and I found the medium fit me and my shoulders just fine. The lynx is really retro looking and the closures are Devine. You can wear it closed at the collar or opened and its just so darn cute!
Received this caplet and fell in love. Have the Lynx and it is absolutely beautiful. I was concerned with the shoulders after reading some other reviews but ordered anyway and I am glad I did. I have broad shoulders but it fit perfectly. The size is true as well and I have received wonderful compliments on this. Everyone is wondering where I got it. Get this one ladies and you will not be dissapointed. Very warm and toasty and the lining is just as wonderful as the faux fur.
Wow! What a Surprise!!!
I have never been a fan of faux fur, but when I got this, I quickly changed my mind. I have a ton of Dennis Basso and I love him dearly, but he has some serious competition!. This coat is so smooth and comfortable I can't believe the price and it runs true to size. I would love to see this in a mink brown. This capelet is awesome!!! Dont hesitate ladies!!!!!!
LOVE this capelet! Have worn it to many parties this season and always get wonderful compliments!!
wonderful caplet but not fit.
I received this capelet and thought it was wonderful until I tried it on. Like some of the other ladies, the shoulders did not fit right. I am a seamtress and I think if the sleeve holes were cut higher, it would be perfect . But at the price, I did not feel that I wanted to redo it. (But I was tempted...it is very soft.) I gave this three stars because of the feel of the fur and some seem to like the fit
Beautiful Cape but....
I was struggling with this cape due to the size chart. I caved and ordered my normal size and was huge excited when it arrived today. When I put it on the shoulders didn't lay right and it was really uncomfortable in the sleeve holes. The cape is beautiful but the sizing is HORRIBLE. I try not to leave bad comments but I felt this was important because I know how long it took me to make a decision and I hope this helps others. Like I said it's beautiful amd glam but if it doesn't fit probably what's the point. I got the lynx and if I liked it I was going to get the leopard for a X-Mas gift for my Mom. But she put it on today and had the same problems and doesn't want it. I hope others have better luck the we did, I'm very dissapointed.
