Women's Ombre Chiffon Pareo Cover-up
Beautiful colour, lacking in everything else
I bought this to go with one of my wonderful Blackberry coloured slender suits from last season. Such a beautiful colour. But while the colour was lovely, I was very let down with the quality of the fabric and the lack of any styling. The fabric felt, and looked, very cheap and didn't drape well at all. The square was so big, that like other reviewers, I couldn't get it to tie or sit nicely at all. I have had lovely sarongs made from georgette or chiffon type fabric, that have gently tailored ties at the top that make all the difference when wrapping a sarong, or pareo around your body to look stylish and feel secure and comfortable. Regretfully this will have to be returned.

Whitish on reverse side (yuck!) and HUGE
I am a size 12 and ordered the S/M pareo. It is ENORMOUS. Very hard to deal with so much extra material. And since the site promises the ability to wear it in so many ways - would love to have some suggestions as to how to do that. Also, fabric pretty cheap - printing has faults in it (spots where it has no color) and the reverse side is a different color?!?! The back of it is whitish in tone and looks pretty lame after you tie it at your waist and it shows.

I bought this in the purple and it's lovely - there's a lot of fabric in it, but there's nothing wrong with that. It wasn't noticeable when tied. Good quality and very pretty and very comfortable. A great cover-up.

nice matching pareo big enough to tie in many ways-great with the suit.

Colour not consistent on both sides
disappointing to find the lovely colour tones are not consistent on both sides of the wrap.

Beautiful ombre coloring
The ombre coloring and light-weight fabric are perfect for the pareo!

pretty wrap but may not be for the practical-minded
I am short at 5'2 and did not find the problems that others have talked about. Unfortunately the one I received has to be returned because of a large flaw in the material. I ordered the blackberry ombre and it looked very pretty with both black and wild grape swimsuits. While it is not as practical as some cover-ups I am seriously considering reordering.

I should have listened to the other reviews
I should have listened to the other reviews on this one. I have not yet worn it (waiting to go on vacation next week) but trying it on it is hard to decide how to wear or how to secure it. It is really long. I am still hoping it works out but it is not a user friendly cover up.

Pretty, but not for me
I had visions of sashaying across the sand with this pareo tied effortlessly around my waist.... what I got was 30 minutes of me standing in front of my bathroom mirror tying, untying, folding, refolding, wrapping once, wrapping twice, in an attempt to figure out how this should fit. I'm 5-3, 125, and if I wrapped this around my waist twice, I could only take teeny-tiny steps. Once, and I looked I had laundry tied to my hip from so much excess material. I tried folding both length-wise and width-wise, but nothing looked right. Best I could come up with was wearing it as a cape, so if you see a woman sauntering across the beach in a purple cape, please wave.

Great cover up!
I just love the color of this pareo. It matches perfectly with both of my swimsuits. I got the blackberry ombre. My suits are huckleberry and black and it looks stunning. The quality is excellent and it seems to be well made. Very pleased with the quality of the material and I like that you can wear it many different ways.
