It's a great quality top, but the back is cinched in by elastic and you can't loosen it. I thought the tie belt went right around so I could use it as a loose, light summery jacket. It looks unflattering when it's left open because of the elastic and it is also very wrinkly! I don't iron things and wouldn't put it in the dryer so it's a no for me for that and the other reasons. It fit like a typical 3x on me, just the elastic wasn't flattering when I did up the buttons.
