Isaac Mizrahi Live! Floral Print Tunic
Ordered this top in the black medium - very pretty and feminine, which is what I wanted. However, the sizing is not per QVC - runs very small. I purchased 5 other tops at the same time , they were D & Co. and Attitudes. The others all fit fine to large, but this top had to go back, too small. Wish sizing was more uniform.
I have had difficulty with Isaac Mizrahi designs before, and I will stop buying his clothes.
In short, they are either too tight or too big. There is a major sizing inconsistency in his clothes. I did like the rayon material but that is all that I liked.
Perfect Summer Top for Coverage over PANTS
I received this top in the pink and I like it. My shape is pear-shaped which means bigger at the bottom of over 10 inches. SO I'm like a 16 top but 20 bottom. Here is my review - COLOR - Pink has nice floral colors, patchwork and very attractive FABRIC - It is a thin fabric so I would wear a nude or skintone color bra. I like the thinner fabric for the hot summer days. FIT - I ordered an XL and I had to return it for a 1X. I found the fit to be a little closer in the bust and the arms appeared to be a little snug. Also it was tighter in the hips if I wanted to wear it completly closed and not as a open jacket. HOW TO WEAR - I tried on the XL and I realized I could wear a white tank inside and wear this top open as a jacket. LENGTH - THe length is longer so if you are under 5'6 it might be too long for you. I can see this top looking nice with leggings also. I ordered the black as well for color jeans.
Was eagerly awaiting arrival of this tunic. Rec'd today and have to say the colors are no way near how they are featured on site. The material is very flimsy and the sleeves are huge right down to the cuff. The cuffs (for lack of better description) would have to be taken in at least 3 inches in order to feel comfortable. I have never had a problem with sleeve length be it 3/4 or long, but no way are these 3/4 come right down to the wrist. Found nothing flattering about the shirt at all. Definitely going back..
LONG ENOUGH TO BE A DRESS
I love the print, love the fabric; however I had to return these tunics. I bought it in two colors and both were long enough to be a dress on my 5'2" frame. It looked hideous. Back they go. Please show clothing on models that are not all 5'10".
Another Hit from Isaac!
I ordered this tunic in purple and I love it! It is definitely tunic length and I sized up as I do with nearly all Isaac's tops - they always seem to run a little small to me. I am planning to wear with white capris to a beach wedding next month. The fabric is light and silky.
Amazingly comfortable with great coverage
The split neck floral print tunic fabric is really light and cool for summer and the sleeves are great for those of us who like to have the upper arms covered. I can't say enough about the softness and the comfort of the fabric. It feels like silk and is as cozy as a pair of pajamas. In fact, Isaac should make pajamas in this fabric! It's so great, you never want to take it off. The large, bright florals are fun and colorful, comfortable and casual. I agree with other reviewers that the look may not be especially sophisticated, but it is a great easy- to -wear outfit that will lift your spirits and cover up areas you want covered. My only disappoinment is with the way the fabric wrinkles. Halfway through my day, I looked down to find a number of wrinkles from sitting. It irons beautifully but I was hoping to have an easy-care garment that would not wrinkle.
summer at its best
Lovely colors and fabric. Comfy. Everyone comments about it. I feel it runs just a tiny bit smaller than most qvc sizes. I had to order up a size.
Sigh of Happy Relief....
.....that is what Isaac said the body does when you feel this fabric. Definitely. The fabric is so luxurious to me - very silky and as another reviewed noted, it feels cool to the touch. I ordered the Pink in Large. I am 5'7", Misses 14, 38C with a rolly mid-section. This looks fantastic. It is slimming, sophisticated easy style. The belt is set above the waist so you need to know that. I'm high waisted, so I think I will not wear the belt tightly tied. I'll wear the belt either loosely tied, or tied in the back, or no belt at all. I do like tasteful florals and so I find the patchwork print divine. The pink is a coral-ly pink. Very flattering on my light tan complexion. I can wear this with almost anything: skirts, capris, jeans, shorts, or even as a topper. I think I'll get the black, too. It's so nice to have pieces that you really love.
This top is one of the saddest things I have ever purchased from QVC. The print was muted, the top itself shapeless and the fabric very thin. I'd look better in a plastic bag. I'm stunned at the good reviews. Couldn't look any cheaper. Save your money.
Just not me
Nice and light for warmer climates, but just too over-the-top floral for me.
Thanks Isaac For Thinking of Us (Tall Gals)!!!
I love everything about this tunic. The fabric is so soft and cool to the touch. It flows over the body in a very feminine fashion. Perfect alternative to all those clingy knits or stiff wovens. Great for summer wear and for over a turtle neck in colder weather. The black is fabulous - very chic and always appropriate.
For us taller gals - especially those of us who have "athletic thighs" ;-) - we don't do so good with leggings that show too much thigh. I love your line to death Isaac (as I do you) but often cannot purchase dresses or tunic because yours tend to be for the average to petite ladies. PLEASE make more of this length for us.PLEASE!
