A199597 - Susan Graver Liquid Knit V-Neck Top w/Lace TrimSolid Inset
Looks like a pajama top
I did not like the way this top looked. The lace makes it look like something I would sleep in. I ordered the brown and it isn't a pretty color of brown at all. I'm sending it back:(
I bought this top in the bright coral and in the brown. The colors are beautiful and the tops fit well. I generally like all of Susan Graver's tops, and this top is no exception! This top. is not too low cut Therefore, it is perfect for work as well as for casual wear. It is wonderful that the liquid knit fabric does not wrinkle. I like this top so much that I bought another one in purple. Since this top is presently on clearance, it's a great buy. I recommend that ypu buy one before it is sold out.
Runs very big!
Wish I would have read the review more on this top. Thought it was very cute on TV but was disappointed when I received it. First it is to big. I ordered my normal size, looks like a sack hanging on me. The fabric just hangs no structure at all. If it was just a little thicker fabric would look much better in the correct size. I just wasted a $100 ordering this top and 2 pair of peddle pushers from D&C. All 3 are to big for me and it just cost to much to return and have more sent that may not fit either. I think I am done ordering clothes off of TV. I went by the size chart to and still didn't fit properly. You should put on the ads if these clothes run large or not. I know you say that if you are watching the shows but I can't always watch all the shows. Sorry Susan was not impressed with this top.
Neck Too Low
This is a beautiful blouse but the neck opening is too low for me, even with the inset. I love the sleeves and the lace on the neckline. The matrerial is also nice. Well made in general.
When I first saw this top, I grabbed it in the purple. My elation turned to disappointment, though. The top ran big and was NOT flattering. I felt like I was wearing a maternity top. The sleeves were old ladyish and the top looked like something you would get at a discount store. . It just was not a good look. I waited too long to return it (didn't wear it right away) so I ended up giving it to charity. Too bad--it was a really lovely shade of purple!
Sizing off, not flattering
I ordered this top in the bright coral size large. It was too big and just not flattering at all. If you were to order this I would recommend sizing down. I also didn't really care for the color, a little too pastel. It reminded me of a pajama top.
These Are Not Supposed to Cling??
When I saw these presented on air, I LOVED them!! They looked so pretty on the models, but I have to remember - these ladies have NO bulges, lumps or bumps of any sort to show - or they're all wearing a snug shaper. When I put this on, it didn't enhance anything. I have plenty in the bustline so it looked ok from the front, but It brought attention to a "roll" in my mid-section in the back which was not attractive at all. I thought these were supposed to 'drape' over the body...anyway, they were not a good look on me at all. There is no 'substance' to this material. It is so silky it just hangs. They look lovely on the right body, just not this one. I guess liquid knit is out for me.
This top is too short and is cut too low, even with the modesty panel. I was very disappointed with the shape of this garment also. It's going right back!
nice top but...
Be sure to check the measurements! This is the first top from Susan that I gave 4 stars....I recommend sizing down. Even though its big it is still a beautiful top. The blue is such a pretty color.
Runs Big and Droopy.
Ordered the xs and still very big and I'm not a real little person. Normally I wear a small or size 6 or 8 top in dept store misses sizes. I ordered the purple. The lace around the neck and the cut of the sleeve reminded me of a night gown. As a matter of fact, come to think about it, this shirt looks exactly like the top of a night gown. The material is polyester and it just hangs. Also I am an A bra cup size and it seemed that I didn't have enough ontop to keep the insert portion of shirt from drooping. Overall a very sad looking top. Gave it two stars as it appears to be sewn well and polyester wears like iron.
I love this top. The color is beautiful.( I got the touquoise.) The only little problem is you have to wear a bra that won't show any lumps under the top. Need smooth undies. It is really nice! Love!!!!
Pretty, but not flattering
I wanted to love these - I thought they were just beautiful on TV. In person, they looked very promising when I opened the packages. I went back and forth, but finally tried them on for my husband's opinion and he agreed with what I had been feeling. They are not the least bit flattering on a large-busted woman. The fabric is pretty (especially the purple) and the lace is a nice effect, but the inset gets "wavy "looking when I have the top on and doesn't sit right and the bottom section seems to highlight my midsection in a bad way and makes me look bigger than I am - very unflattering. That said, I feel that the top might look beautiful on a tall, thin, smaller busted woman. Sorry, but these are going back - wish I hadn't ordered two of them. FYI: I tend to wear a L or XL in case that helps anyone.
