Rated 5 out of 5┬áby novazzz Another Pretty Namrata Joshipura
My tunic arrived today and I am very pleased. For reference I am 5'1", 140 pounds and I went with a Small. The fit is nice and actually flattering on me. I was skeptical of how well this blouse would work being so sheer and unlined, but I don't think it will be a problem. I tried it on quickly with a black bra that I already had on and even that looked ok. Then I tried a nude bra and that looked pretty seamless. The armholes go quite low, but the cut doesn't allow for hardly any bra exposure, if that makes sense. You could wear a silk shell or cami underneath if you prefer, but it feels nicer without one in the heat. I thought that pants would be an issue with the sheerness and thought I would have to invest in something white which is not really my style, but the tunic seems to work with jeans and leggings. I couldn't tell from the photos when I ordered if there were beads, sequins, or embroidery. There is mainly embroidery and some yellow and white sequin details on the flowers. (comes with extra sequins). This embellishing is really nice, not tacky. And lastly the tie that comes with it can be tied at least 3 different ways. Mine was originally threaded over the belly and looping back, so you could tie it back there or bring it back around to the front. If you do it this way, you constrict the arms a little. If you re-thread the tie the other way and then pull it to front it works better. It even looks nice with no tie. Overall, while price is a little steep, it is really beautiful, comfortable, and unique.

Decent quality for a fragile item, given how poorly made even expensive clothes are these days. I liked the structural design and that it came with a matching fabric belt and extra beads.
However, the beaded flowers were much brighter and overwhelming than they appear in the photo. They were just too much, especially those bright yellow beads which are flattering on almost no one. They came close to looking like school bus safety yellow. A softer yellow would have been much more flattering on more skin tones. Even the white beads were too white because there were just so many of them! Fewer beds altogether would have been classier. Returned.
