“I don’t understand how they can do that so poorly. They don’t seem to go beyond that size.

“It was not even two sizes too large, it must have been size 24, It was huge.

It said size 12, but it is too large.

It’s not on the shoulder. The drawstring is there. People claimed that they have ordered large items before, and pulled the drawstrings tighter. But the sleeves are huge. It would still be too small if it was tightened.
