I purchased Faith in the color Illumina-R. This is definitely in my top 5 color favorites! I always get compliments galore when I wear this color. However, Faith and I have not been the best of friends. I bought her because I like to be a little different and her asymmetrical length AND the color sucked me in.
The first time I wore her, I was on a weekend getaway and I didn't notice anything unusual. I liked her length because it's hot here in Texas and she was comfortable.
The next time I donned her, I noticed the long side, rudely pointing at people! The bottom of the long side was not framing my face, but sticking straight out from my chin. That's the sort of thing that drives me nuts! I got my steamers out and after some time, thought I had her fixed. I let her sit for 24 hours, then put her on. There she was, pointing at people again!
Long story short, after a great deal more effort, I finally admitted defeat and cut, thinned and steamed her this morning so she is no longer asymmetrical. She's now a short a-line style that I hope will not exhibit rude behavior any more!!
In reexamining the manufacturer's photos, specifically the ones of the girl wearing Faith in Bubblegum-R, it does appear that her long side might also jut outward. That ruined her for me but may be a non-issue for others. It's a shame too, as I enjoyed her typical Noriko fit and silky fibers.
