Susan Graver Liquid Knit Tiered 3/4 Sleeve Top
Great flattering design
This is a fancy dressy design and is very figure flattering. The material is a little heavier than I expected but I love this blouse.
I Love This Top!
I'm 5'9" and an XL. I love the comfort and it's so easy to care for. I have it in purple. I've had many compliments!
Love this Top.
Originally I ordered a large size, but when I got it, it was too big. I returned it for a medium size and it fit perfectly. Love this top.
do not like
I avoid the liquid knit because it shows all flaws but I thought since this is layered it would look good. The layers are gathered and full. I wear a 1X and looked like the dough boy. If the layers had laid flat it would have been a flattering top. On it's way back.
When I received this top, it was so wrinkled. Before even trying it on, I laundered it and it was still wrinkled. I steam ironed it and that helped, but I will NOT iron a shirt like this each time it is laundered! It also fit big, and the neck is so plain, that with the heaviness of the fabric, it just was not flattering.. The neck needs a binding, or some sort of ruching for it to be more attractive.. I will be sending it back.

I like the look and feel of this top. The tiers are wonderful for camouflaging figure flaws. It is heavier than I expected, but I don't mind; the weight provides good placement and movement for the tiers. Because the tiers are angled, I think it looks just a bit off that the bottom hem is straight across. I think a slight angle at the hemline would complete the look nicely. I also would prefer a little extra length. The straight-across hem hit me just at the widest part of my hips (I am 5'4") and the effect is not optimal. It's possible to wear a jacket or cardigan over the top, but it would have to be of a fairly substantial material to keep the tiers across the back under control. Nice neckline; not too low. I got the black and the brown, and find that if I wear with same-color pants the hem-at-the-hips issue is minimized. Overall I like and expect to wear regularly.
Great fitting top
I previously purchased this top in purple and in green. Also got another with a design.
The last one I just recently received was in dark stone. This color was not good for me. Just washed me out. I returned it. I did size down from a medium to a small on this top as it does run large. When ever I wear this top I always get compliments.
Fun & Comfy
I'm very happy with my new Susan Graver top -- I've ordered a few things from her now and I've been happy with everything. The material is comfortable and I don't get too hot wearing it, and it is very flattering. I love the tiers - makes it interesting and fun to wear. I'm not fond of long sleeves even in the winter time so the three-quarter sleeves are great for me. My first choice was black which was on a waiting list, so I ordered the green, which was a different shade of green for me to order -- I ended up liking it very much, and it looks nice with my green eyes. I've also been noticing this shade of green this fall in fashion. It will look nice for the holidays, too. As for care of garment, I hand wash in the machine and I line dry - happy with the results. Size wise, I think maybe it runs true to size (the first time I wore this I had a nice Big dinner eating out and I was still comfortable afterwards). I want to go back for a black one!
This shirt is very heavy and runs big.
Was not happy with the color. Will be returning it
Not what I expected...nice but...
I love Susan's clothes, but in this case, the fabrication is SO heavy on the body. I suppose it's all the tired layers, BUT too heavy for our climate. It also runs large so down size if you must. But don't expect this to be as airy and light and springy as it looks...it isn't. I had to return.
WAY TO HEAVY
This top is way to heavy and way to bulky. I am a plus size woman and really do not need the extra bulk. I love the liquid knit fabric, however, this just won't work. Sent top back today. I live in Arizona and I might be able to wear this one day out of the year.
Not for me
I am not sure if it was because this top runs large or just because it was too much fabric but this was not for me. Very heavy and made me look twenty pounds heavier.
I think you have to order small and someone with some height may wear it better as it looks so beautiful on all the models.
