Susan Graver Velour Long Sleeve V-neck Tunic
I really wanted to like this tunic, but the fit was weird. The arms are too tight but the bottom is too wide. It would be a fantastic top if it had some side slits and a more generous cut in the arms and chest. The fabric was of good quality, and the deep jewel colors were beautiful. Fix the fit issues, and I'd buy in multiple colors.
Best. Purchase. Ever.
Caught this tunic by accident one night and ordered it in grey and wine/burgundy (2X). From the first wearing I was in LOVE. (Wore it at least once a week from the day it arrived.) Last week I ordered it in copper and teal (which had been sold out) and the day after it arrived I wore it. SO easy to wear...so flattering.... and SOFT! It's like wearing a hug (ALL day). It's such a great basic; change the necklace or wear a scarf and it's a different outfit.
I just received my first top today and I love it. Yes, there is a bit of swing at the bottom but I expected that. I have a 3/4 sleeve summer top that does the same thing from SG. I sized down in that top and found it looked good but the sleeves have a pull to them so I didn't size down this time. It is an attractive top that can be dressed up or down. I have two more on order. I tend to buy multiples when I find something I love. I did buy the D&C velvet top that is not nearly as nice as this one. I received the black today and I have the wine and teal coming. I may even come back for the gray or copper.
I purchased this in Medium in the teal color and wore it for the first time today. The fabric is very comfortable, but the top is not flattering at all! It's boxy and I agree with the other reviewer that it is reminiscent of a maternity top! It's a shame because the color is gorgeous, and the fabric feels really soft. Maybe I'll keep it to wear around the house, or maybe I'll return it, but I'm definitely not wearing it to work ever again!
I was very disappointed with this top. The fabric was of poor quality and the fit was totally wrong. I have a lot of Susan Graver clothing and this is not up to her usual standards. Going back.
Not SG quality
I ordered usual size, didnt fit right. I didnt like the quality or the look. Returned.
This could be an absolutely beautiful shirt; however, it flares out so much at the bottom it's more like a maternity top.
Warm & Cozy!
Temperatures in Texas are finally dropping and I'm loving the softness, warmth, and coziness of this top! I purchased it in the wine color, so it looks great with jeans and black pants. Perfect shape and fit, true to size. Definitely a keeper!
Very Wearable Top
I had purchased a black and wine tunic last year. This year I bought the smokey gray. This top is so soft and comfortable. I wear these tunics casually with colored jeggings or leggings. So much more fun than a sweatshirt. They can be dressed up as well. I find these tunics to be true to size and just the right length, being at the top of the thigh. I'm 5'4" and wear a medium. There is no pull or tightness across the back or shoulders. The fit is is easy without being oversized. These wash beautifully in cool water wash and medium dry. Mine did not shrink.
Very Soft and comfortable
I normally wear a Large and sized up to the Extra Large due to people saying that the arms were tight and that it had a lot of cotton. It is very big on me but with the cotton I am sure of shrinkage. The sleeves were not tight at all for me. I would like to see some lighter colors in this, to brighten up a older woman's face .. dark colors can make me look a little "sallow".
I usually don't buy Susan Graver's clothing. I may have two tops of hers. But I did purchase this top in the blue and green some time ago. I really liked the way they looked and were very comfortable and warm. When I saw them on air again, I ordered two more. They are great to "throw on" when you're running out or if you're going to dinner you can dress them up a little bit too. I usually wear them with jeans. They look great. They run "slightly" big, but not too much that they look like you ordered a size up. I think you will be satisfied with this top.
5' 4" SHORTY
I am only 5'4" - I don't know how you made the sleeves look long enough for the tall models. This runs a little small and the sleeves are about an inch short. I stretched it out in the bust and sleeves and it fit better. Please do not put pockets on this as it will just add bulk. I bought five and haven't decided to send back yet. My quandary Is: will it shrink in the wash and loose some of the stretched-out ability I seemed to need with this garment through the bust and sleeves? Also, the grey is much darker than it appears on TV or web.
