Rated 5 out of 5 by 36-10 Got It, Love It
Wearing it now as I write. Wearing a 14 - my size . It's a little snug, but I'll work on that.
Going out tonight- Women Against Breast Cancer Fundraiser. Pray for those that battle, those that survived, and those that care for them. God bless us all.
PS I forgot to say it's a great looking top. Glad it's sleeveless. Another thing I got to work on. But I'm happy and am loved and love. Can't wait to go out and enjoy being with the "sisters."

If you get this top you definitely need the skirt to complement the look. It makes a great outfit however the top just flares way too much especially in the back and if you have a long torso it will be way too high.
Rated 2 out of 5 by ShopGirl09 Missing Belt!
Oh, no! Shortly after placing my order, I received an email that my order was delayed for unstated reasons. Could it have been a quality issue? Well, mine arrived WITHOUT A BELT, which kind of worries me that this was possibly a return. Not the end of the world, but not the type of service or quality I expect from QVC. This caused me to dock 2 stars off what would have been a 4 str review.
I ordered my regular GILI size, which is 1 up from most other brands on Q. It fits like a glove, which is what I wanted
It is short waisted with the peplum seam about 4" below my (larger) bust. I'm short waisted, so this was a win for me.
The fabric/garment is heavier than I expected. It's about 3mm thick, once you include the lining. This thickness had a smoothing, concealing, corseting effect, which I like.
The peplum is mildly exaggerated, with a medium flare, but could still be worn under a jacket, without tenting out the jacket.
Armholes and neckline are close to the body, but don't strangle. The ponte knit panels give some breathing room and comfort.
I didn't plan to wear with the belt and there is plenty of waist definition without it..I'd still have like to have received the belt, though. Might end up being an exchange for a new one.

This is a killer top and with the skirt to match it is the BOMB. After seeing the promos I kept stalking the QVC website waiting for this item to come in -- and I am exceedingly pleased with my purchase. I normally wear a size 4/6 in designer/retail garments and went with the size 2 in this top and the matching skirt. The fit was perfect. I agree with the other reviewers concerning their observation that the peplum top is a bit short waisted -- however I found that this feature was ultimately very flattering.
Rated 2 out of 5 by rodneysmom Fun top....but not practical
Great top for "dress up" and perfect with the matching skirt - got the skirt which I can get more use out of vs. the peplum top. Do like them together however , being practical (cost of top >$80 w/tax + s/h, etc.). This is a great outfit for a "special occasion" but peplum top is a bit too much for everyday wear and use. Don't feel the investment is worth the number of times I"ll would wear this top. Suggest sizing up as it fits quite snuggly across the bust. The quality of the faux leather is wonderful and I do like the printed embossed faux leather mixed with plain faux leather and knit. panels. The peplum also is too short waisted , needs to be lowered to natural waist line- feels like this peplum top is made more for petite vs longer torso, taller figure. Feel like I am always pulling it down to my waistline. I'd like to see this same top and fabric redesigned into something more form-fitting that follows the lines of the waist and hips.

This top on the models looked like it had a short waist. I am 5' 71/2 and the models are taller. I ordered it and it is does have a short waist and fits odd. I ordered a 12 for a 38C and it was too big under the arm pits because it showed more skin then needed. Frankly, the faux looks cheap and not worth the price they are charging for it.

I ordered this too and the matching skirt. Both are beautiful, but I ordered up a size to size 10, and, as usual, the top tight in the bust, but loose in the waist. I returned it, but I am debating about re-ordering in an even larger size and having it altered.

It was right under my breast. I'm not sure what these people like about this garment. The material is not bad, but I wouldn't spend more than 50.00 for this and that's being nice. I'm not an older lady, so maybe that's the issue. Sending back asap.
