"I am 5'4", slender, and it is very very very big. It drapes in such a way, in the front, that I look like I have 2 big pouches on either front side. Inside, there is a band of elastic, not even covered. I, silly me, decided to keep it, only because of the fabric- a beautiful silk with flowers in a Japanese fashion. I took off the elastic, and now it is a silk poncho. But definitely not worth the price....I just belt it up if I want it to look like the photo..but the elastic...cheaply sewn up, to say the least...If you are in your right mind, you will return it like the other reviewer. I just love the fabric."
