Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
Thank - you to those who gave the heads-up on how large this kurta is. I bought a medium (which was a perfect fit with room to spare) and a large. I am a size 12/14 38DD weighing 155lbs. The large was much too big. I'll give the large to my husband. It's very comfortable and the black and white looked fabulous with slim white jeans or tan slacks. It looks nice dressed-up or down with a feminine touch, because for me it has a "somewhat" masculine look.
Love it, love it, love it! Well made, washes well, very little (if any shrinkage). Ordered the saffron color and really liking it, not too bright, not too dull. Very well made, hidden pockets a plus. You can press the Kurta off a bit if you over-dry it (would recommend inside-out) but not an absolute necessity, IMO. Would love to have the black one real soon. One of the most well constructed tops I've purchased in quite a while; get many compliments.
These tops are very versatile - long enough to toss over a swim suit and walk to the beach bar - pretty and "solid" enough to wear as a top over jeans or yoga pants. Or, on it's own as a very chic "house dress" - I bought two and wish there were more colors to choose from. Soft sheeting, washes beautifully and gets softer. If you hang it up right from the washing machine or dry it for 10 minutes and hang you don't have to iron it.
Well I checked the reviews before I bought this kurta (the blue) so I knew the characters wouldnt be white and that the color wouldnt be true to the photo: and with that aside I was very happy with my purchase. There will be a tendency for the strong color to "rub off" on you and in water. Definetly wash seperately and dont be surprised for a little color, at least in the blue, to find itself on you.
This top is made of soft, somewhat sheer cotten,but it's opaque enough to be modest. It looks great with pants, and would probably look good with a long skirt as well. I bought it in dark blue, and my friends have already admired it.
It's also fun to explain the "Ohm" to friends who've never seen one!
I have always loved Indian style clothing. I have a ton of things my sweet East Indian friend made for me. This kurta is just adorable. It really is BIG. Get one size smaller than you take, honest!!!! If you are a medium, buy a small or you will be swimming in it. Really a nice relaxed item to wear. You won't be sorry. Worth the money. All colors are so nice.
I read the reviews that said this shirt ran large, so I ordered an xl (I usually wear a 2x) and they were right. It fits perfect! I love the length goes great with leggings and boots. The color is a very pretty royal blue, with with markings ( I don't know what the symbol means, I wish they would have put it in the package).
These aren't as nice a cotton as the ones I have bought in the past but they are still nice. They wash up nicely. They are wonderful to throw on over a little modesty t shirt. And I never wear one without hearing at least one positive comment from a complete stranger. I always tell them where I found the product. This is a good garment.
Nice loose size. I bought the white and it's very nice.beautifulgalaxy5 on Apr 8, 2014

Hi. Neighbor got one of these on my account. She had me send it back. It looked so cute I bought 3 for myself. I got them smaller than normal and still nice and roomy. That is what an East Indian Kurta is. I have a lot of that type of clothing after living in a highly East Indian populated community and lots of friends one of who made me a few things. These are soft and comfy. Thanks Overstock!!!!!seymourd on May 24, 2014
