I bought both this bolero and the Mercury Bloom capelet, as I was indecisive - and ended up loving both. The Pearlwise Bolero is stunning, and so classy. The quality is spectacular, and it would have added the perfect amount of embellishment to my otherwise super simple chiffon dress. I did find it to be a bit heavy - as it kept drooping low on my back just from the weight of the pearls - and would have required a bit of garment tape to keep it in place on my shoulders. Ultimately, because of the weight, I decided to go with the Mercury Bloom instead as my wedding is outdoors in July, and I didn't want to risk this being too much on a hot day. It's really gorgeous though, and could easily become a family heirloom piece. Especially at the sale price - I definitely recommend! P.S. I'm petite, and generally a size 2, and the XS was perfect.
