I thought for sure this would feel like one of those made like lace that they have on here, this is so not. It’s soft. The kind of soft that makes you rub it on your face. It’s nice and roomy, which is a plus, since I’m a 2X. The ladder pattern isn’t felted together yet and I didn’t want any any snags, so I washed and dried flavored before I wore it, not sure you can see in the discription, I didn’t, but the sides are actually laced up in a cross cross pattern. So. cute!!
