I've never had a top like this, and had it on my wish list forever before finally putting myself first and buying it! It's that stretchy kind of material (I usually hate that kind cuz it touches me and shows off the bulges), but since I got it a size bigger, it's okay. The one thing I did notice was that the pink parts look as though they're a little stretched out and sort of loop down a little over the lace. Seems well made, and does give me a nice figure. As I said, I got the 3x because I hate when shirts hug tightly to full-figured women. I shall wear it for our next band performance; even my 13 year old daughter loves it. But sorry, I won't spend $65 on a shirt for her! Not because I don't love her, but because she wouldn't wear it and it would be a huge waste of money. I do think these shirts are amazing, although they could be a bit more affordable.
I was in a musical performance where our costumes were supposed to look Victorian in style. I wore it with a long black skirt and it had a Victorian look. I think I could have worn one size smaller (ordered a 3x) and ended up wearing a padded push up bra just to fill it out more. It flares out over the hips. It showed a lot of chest area so I also wore a Victorian style black lace choker with hanging chains.
This is outside my comfort zone for a shirt but I wanted to try it. I love it... love it enough to leave my house in it?? We'll see. :-) I did buy a half slip, because the girls try and play peek a boo, and THAT is beyond my comfort zone. I got a nice lace one in black that looks really good with it. Might even wear it to church...cause I don't go anywhere else, other than work. I'm 5' tall 200 lbs, pear on stilts. and I got the 3X. These types of shirts are good because they flare over the bottom of the pear part.
I ORDERED A 1X AND ITS TO SMALL AND THE ARMS ARE TO SMALL AND TIGHT AND THE MATERIAL IS ACTUALLY NYLON AND VERY CHEAPLY MADE ONE SNAG ON SOMETHING AND IT WILL RUIN THAT MATERIAL. I HAVE REQUESTED A REFUND BACK OF MY MONEY SO I CAN PURCHASE SOME OF ELSE OF BETTER QUALITY
The shirt fit nicely for me, however be warned, the sizing is different than usual sizing. Go by the measurement guide not your regular size. I normally wear a size 26/28 (which is big on me, but I prefer a looser fit, my acual size is 22/24) and the 4x is the 22/24 size. The design of the shirt is not for someone who has a large bust, so if you're busty, I wouldn't get this shirt, but if you're small busted like I am the shirt will look nicely. The bows don't stay very well so I had to knot them pretty badly to keep them from constantly coming undone, so be aware of that. It shipped and arrived quickly, within the given time.
We loved the shirt, but it did not fit my partner's frame. It was big around the waist and smallish up top. The garment is exceptionally well made, and looks great. We just wish it had worked out. So be careful if you have a thin frame.
I really wanted to love these tops, but I have to admit I was disappointed and they are all going back. I will say that I am NOT a plus size, so perhaps they will work better on a plus size woman. But even as a regular sized woman, when I wear a top like this, I want them to ENTIRELY cover the backside and they do not. I ordered size Large. I am 5'3", a solid 130 lbs, and I don't look overweight at all, but on the shorter side, I like to wear a pretty top like this with leggings, and it didn't cover my rear end. I can't imagine why the designers stopped this short. Perhaps with a skirt or other type of pant, it will work. But they didn't fall where I wanted them to. I also think for the price, the quality of material should be much better. For this fabric, I think it should be about $20-25 cheaper, they are no more than a $40 value, maximum!! Also, while I'm not overweight, I am not a lightweight, skinny girl, but I didn't quite fill out the top, although I couldn't go smaller and maybe that's why you need to truly be full-figured to appreciate these. But I don't think the seems in the corsets, bust area, etc, fell where I would have expected them to. I could have done a whole lot of altering to make these appear as beautiful as they do in these pictures. 1 reviewer mentioned that the laces untie very easily and this is true!! I couldn't control the laces just in trying them on - I can't imagine how annoying it would be if I was actually wearing the top! Very disappointed, they look so pretty - the idea is there, but it doesn't translate in the wearing. Add a few inches to the length, upgrade the fabric and lacing, tweak the lines within the top, and you probably have a hit. But not these, not at these prices. Thankful that Amazon does free shipping both ways on them!! Would NOT have been happy if I had to pay both ways!
Kind of expected sizing to be bigger on this as it is advertised for a fuller figure which I surely am. When I buy other advertised garments as plus size I take a 4X in blouses. I took a 5X in this range as it was a first purchase of this range and I was unsure but it really is smaller than I expected. Pity because the garment itself is blooming gorgeously sexy!
