JILL PLEASE MAKE THIS IN PETITES! This is a beautifully constructed, elegant garment but it is fitted. There is no fudging with fitted garments. The nape of the neck to the small of the back measurement is shorter in petites. The armholes and shoulder area are differently proportioned as well. On me (5'1", slender but curvy) the torso of this garment just did not lie correctly. The armholes were too big, the distance across the chest was too big as well. I wear a pp or a sp in Talbot's (depending on the fit I want). (I use Talbot's because they have nailed petite proportions in their clothes.) My tailor would have to remake this whole Gili top and it still would not be perfect. This is such a disappointment because this style of top is really good for my figure and I love the quality of it. It is very high end. I would buy it in every color if it fit me correctly and forgo other things to afford it. I am sure I am not alone. Gili is one of the few lines that sizes like Brick and Mortar. QVC seems to forget smaller sized customers. Everything is vanity sized. However, I notice 0s sell out in Gili and many reviews are from petites, like me. IF YOU ARE A MISSES, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE AN HOURGLASS FIGURE, THIS IS A TERRIFIC TOP. I did not take off stars because it didn't fit me correctly. I am a petite and this is not designed for petites.
Rated 5 out of 5 by midwestdasiy Well made and lovely
Ordered the size six, in black. Am 5ft 4in. and 120lbs. with broad shoulders and a bit of a bust, and it fit perfectly. I think if you are narrow shouldered you would want to size down. I think it is a lovely top, it is very well manufactured. I actually purchased this top after seeing a similar top in a dept. store that was over twice the price, which is why I didn't buy it. When I saw this, I snapped it up. It has a very nice, slimming line, and the lining helps to hide figure flaws. I will wear this with jeans, slacks and skirts. Quite a chic piece. I think this is a 4 season piece that can be worn anytime.
Rated 3 out of 5 by GinormousQVCaddict Very high neck
I love GILi and chic pieces like this one...but why do the GILI tops always have such a high neck? If this top had a scoop neck, I would buy all 3 colors. I have a larger bust(34 C/D), so I look HUGE on top when the neck line is so high like this one. I have a similar top from 2015 which has a high neck as well. I noticed it looked high on the host, but I thoughther microphone pack was taking up room to make it appear so high.(no, the neckline is high). Also the black horizontal "band" is really high on me? I am 5'7" 124 lbs and I purchased my usual size 2 which fits for the most part. I bought black and the blue;the black is less special since you cannot see the detail as well. The material plus lining is quite thick, so this top would be great for fall, spring, and possibly winter too. I am surprised this top debuted in June with such heft to it. Please GILI team...please add some great tops similar to this with a scoop neck and/or v-necks as well? I am not asking for anything revealing...just not so high please. Otherwise this top is definitely chic!
Rated 5 out of 5 by DCfashionista Very chic styling
I purchased this top in the olive and it is a perfect match to the GILI milano ponte pencil skirt (A2634230). Since I am busty, I found that I need to order up 2 sizes in GILI tops, which makes the fit a bit large in the shoulders. This top is worth the alternations to get the perfect fit. It is a nice piece for business travel as it can be worn with a pencil skirt for day and then with jeans at night. The material is on the heavier side for summer, but I know I will be thankful for the weight in air conditioned conference rooms.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vasilia Another great gili top!
Keep in mind that it is fitted so you will probably have to wear it over something smooth. It is a heavy material so it may not be the top you will reach for in the summer but it can be a great top to wear when you want to look chic and stylish.
