I haven't worn headbands since I was young, but I decided to purchase this band spontaneously. I really am glad I purchased this band- love the design, and it's fairly comfortable. It attaches to my head well and does not hurt my temples even though it's on my head all day. Though it does have this plastic-like material, the band doesn't seem to stretch or break. I would recommend this for any women wanting to try a headband look.
