"This poncho is pretty, unique and stylish. I bought both in red and blue, the red is pretty much the same color in pics, blue is a tiny bit lighter grayish blue (than in the pics) that I like a lot. Those strips look very well balanced with the feel of fabric. The fabric is 100% cotton and thick (but not heavy at all!) and good quality and it hangs on me very nicely in the flattering way that I love!. Sizing: I'm 5'2", usually wear S for FP sometimes M for a good loose fit. This poncho fits on me as loose as the way on the model in pics and it is very comfortable. I'm very happy with my purchase and highly recommend."
