First and foremost I do not understand the reviews complaining of quality issues. It is a well made little fascinator. We are in the age of plastic people get used to it. That being said it is not cheaply made. It flexes with the head molding nicely to the shape . The interior has enough room to accommodate a modest size 50's style hairdo. I appreciated that the gauze was actually longer than the photos allowing me to trim it to my tastes. I will be finding more products in this line.
