George Simonton Milky Knit Peekaboo Sleeve Top & Petite Maxi Skirt Set
I was a bit on the fence about ordering this set- thankfully no regrets! I am 5"5 and plus size(I wear 1x to 3x depending on the garment or 22-24 to 26-28 numerical sizes,I ordered the back in 3x and love love love.The fabric is super silky but not flimsy.Of couse the set can be worn separately-I will be wearing the skirt constantly this summer.The top has a nice drape-and the arm slit accents are subtle actually,they don't gap open-just glimpses of skin,and thankfully keeping that upper arm covered.Thinking about purchasing another set-but I am not crazy about color-probably will co with the blue.Being a plus size-I am always on the lookout for clothing that is flattering,-this skirt set fits the bill
Not for petite women
I liked the material of the set, I very much liked the top. The skirt however was much too long for my 5"2 inches. I didn't want to keep it just for the top, so back it went.
Rocking in Red!
I needed a red outfit for our "Pink Goes Red" event. I looked EVERYWHERE for an outfit that would be cute and comfortable. I saw the George Simonton Maxi Skit outfit and thought it would be perfect! I purchased it and wore it last night. It was a flawless choice! It was just enough without being too much. And since we are still experiencing winter weather, it gave me enough sleeve for warmth as well as coverage. It was a hit! Can't wait until I wear it again! Money WELL spent!
Beautiful SOFT & Perfect Fit
I got this in red and 1x and can wear together or as separates. Love the style and the fabric.
Petite top runs small. Have this set in black (average size) love it. Order the stone in petite had to returned it "top cut small".
I would LOVE it if George could bring this back (in more petite quantities) in purple, ruby or the blue. I missed out on my size in PXXS and PXS. Please QVC bring this back out of retirement.
I ordered this in XL-Large, because the Large was sold out in the color I wanted. It fits perfectly and can be dressed up or down, which I will do both for the wedding and reception. And the top is a little big but will make a tuck in the shoulder to tighten a bit more. This is so classy ladies I would not hesitate to buy it at this price. Way to go George!! Love it. I would size down.
I am a curvy 14-16 (I still have a waist, for now) and the L fits perfectly. After reading the reviews and because of availability I ordered it in the petite because of my short legs. (5'6" with a 29" inseam) Keep in mind girls, this IS a maxi skirt...I like that it is a little shorter in the front. I like the sleeves because I am smaller on top and no shoulder seams to advertise the fact that the top may be a little roomy on me. The split sleeves lay nicely without falling open unless you move right. The ruching at the tummy hides the bulge nicely. I came back for 2 more colors...I will wear them to weddings and work, and also split up the set for more casual wear. Way to go, George!
I bought this in a petite I'm only 5'3 and it is perfect.. I can not wait to wear this to church..
Beautiful Outfit, but the length...
This is a beautiful outfit, but it definitely is not made for petite (short) people . I purchased it for my 5-feet-tall daughter to wear to her baby shower. The skirt was very long. The back of it hit the floor and dragged. She pulled the skirt up, wore it as a dress and added a shrug. Gave it 4 stars because of the terribly long length. Mr. Simonton, please check your petites on short people.
I finally bought this outfit after seeing it several times. The large was sold out in the black regular so I ordered the petite. It is perfect. I am ordering the royal blue one too, since it is on clearance it will never be back, so I want to get it while the getting is good. I am VERY pleased with the fit and the way I look in it. It is coming with me on my trans-atlantic cruise this November. It will be great for formal night. Thanks George!!!
Loved the concept of this Maxi Skirt Set...the top fit well and the Peekaboo Sleeve gave the top an updated flair but the skirt didn't hang right...I'm 5'4" so I ordered the petite length...I had to roll the waist line up two rolls to get the skirt off the floor in the back. The waist would not stay rolled, so I was constantly re-rolling the waistline. I'm a little bottom heavy and the material wanted to show off all my imperfections. I love George Simonton's clothing but this one needs to be rethought a bit. I ordered two sets but I'm returning both sets, sorry George. The fashion designers need to think about their plus size customers more...everything doesn't fit or look the same on a plus size person as it does on a small or average size person.
