I'm glad that the neckline is loose because that was my main concern that it wouldn't be. This top is pretty, comfortable & love how I look in it.

It looks like a real jade stone, has weight to it, and is very cold to the touch. The roller is high quality, not cheap at all. It has a silicone barrier around the rod so that when it spins, it doesn't squeak. The gold detailing is also gorgeous!

I've worn them both multiple times over the last few weeks for full days and have had no issues with holes or the heel. I purchased my size and they fit exactly. I would recommend wearing taller socks (or pants/tights that cover your legs) because there is some rubbing if you're walking a lot.
