Rated 3 out of 5 by Foxette Disappointed by Description of Product
I ordered 3 of these (in different colors) on a lunchtime special. Although the top is pretty, I was amazed at how sheer it was. This really is more an overlay than an actual blouse as you need a cami or tank to go underneath. I kept these tops based on the price but I would have returned them if I paid full price because they are sheer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Barbara01 Totally sheer and too hard to get on!
I guess I didn't realize it was this sheer. Every time I tried to put it over my head, the belt kept getting in the way. I undid the belt and tried again and it still got in the way. Not worth the trouble, my first gillie purchase going back!

Very thin material and not worth any price paid. Returned.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Like A Boss Orange & Defected
I really like the design of this blouse. It's beautiful and feminine. But mine arrived with stitching undone at the top ruffle. Also, after trying it on, I took it right back off. The "Peach Blossom" is more orange, in my opinion, and not flattering at all to my skin tone. I wear corals and peaches really well, but this did not look good. More like an orangesicle push-pop. The belt leaves something to be desired, too. Just seems too basic, or mechanical, to go with this soft, billowy top. I was disappointed with the stitching detail, the color, and just packed it back up and returned with no thought to reorder. After looking at the blouse again and reading other reviews, I may give it another go in the Navy or Ivory. It IS such a pretty blouse...
Regarding size- I heeded the advice of other reviewers (Thank you!) and ordered one size down. Fit great.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sailor01 Pretty, but for a full figure
This is a very pretty blouse, very feminine. The styling is made for a thin person though.The puckering and the belt does not work well if you have a fuller bust and hips. Disappointed because I loved the color navy. Going back . :o(
Rated 4 out of 5 by perfumera De La Luz Love it in navy
This is a lovely blouse- I belt it w/ a obi and wear it w/ the G.I.L.I. peplum skirt.

I read previous reviews which stated this shirt didn't look good if you are petite, so I was very concerned about ordering since I am only 5'2" (120lbs). But I was pleasantly surprised when my blouses arrived (blush and navy). I ordered the navy blouse in size 2 and the blush in size 4 because the size 2 was on waitlist in that color. Both blouses fit me beautifully with the size 4 just a little loose which isn't bad. The blouses are completely sheer so I will definitely need to wear cami's beneath them. I love the length of the blouses because I can leave it untucked or tucked in and it looks good either way. I also don't have a problem with the belts that were included. I really don't have anything bad to say about this garment. I am very glad I took the plunge and ordered them; very pleased with these beautiful blouses.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cadde Exquisite On Model Height Women Only
Love this blouse! I was so looking forward to wearing this in the Ivory. I had outfits planned for casual hem out styles & dressy hem tucked styles. I have the G.I.L.I. shoes, Roma 2 tote, etc. to coordinate. This was not designed for a 5'4" women. The length from the shoulders to the waist is too long. I listened to Lisa and watched the models and then ordered. Mistake. Now that I have tried it upon arrival today, read the reviews, looked closer at the static photos of the models online and the video again I think this was designed for taller women only. It is also too wide in the hips and lower chest. The rings on the belt look really cheap. I like the delicate belt fabric. For me, across the upper shoulders front and back the fit is perfect. I love the style concept. I am faced with three choices: 1.) return it for a smaller size that may or may not fit still. 2.) just return it & forget it, SADLY! 3.) take it to an alteration person and have it made shorter in length to waist and more narrow in the lover chest and hips for more money! So disappointed!!!!
Every G.I.L.I. item that I have ordered has fit perfectly as described until this.
What is happening, Lisa?
