I am a major fan of ponchos so I was super excited to see this on the LB website and in store. Unfortunately, this poncho just didn't work for me. I have a straight figure so I rely on clothing silhouettes to define more curves for me The poncho made my shoulders look broad and left the rest of me looking rather shapeless. I tried cinching it with a belt and the look was drastically improved but I had to keep fussing with it to get it lined up just right. I think that a little structure (closed sides or a self tie) would have made this a great poncho because the length, color and fabric are fantastic.
