Received my Stella and am really happy with the silk topper! I own 1 other lace style topper and the silk topper is Definitely a little more realistic than the lace. But I still wear the lace one frequently because I love the shorter length and love the lightness to it. I like the Stella and am working to get the part right and I need to thin the front some more because it seems unrealistic to me. But overall, I'm happy with this purchase and excited after all these years to have a solution. These toppers are wonderful but be prepared to do a little work to customize it to you. I have already recommended uniwigs to ladies I know!
