A213698 - Denim & Co. 3/4 Sleeve Stretch Poplin Floral Woven Shirt
Terrible Sizing Issue
I knew from previous reviews that this shirt ran small, so I ordered a small - I am ALWAYS either an XS or S at QVC. According to the sizing chart a Small runs 40.5 inches across the bust, and I was worried about it being too big - but, the actual measurement of the shirt I received was a scant 36 inches! It gaped a bit on me when buttoned, so it had to go back. The shirt (marine blue) was very pretty, and I have a Honora necklace that was a perfect match. The next size up is no longer available, and anyway, it may have been too large across the shoulders. This shirt is the most poorly sized item I have ever received from the Q.
I went up a couple of sizes on this to allow for the shrinkage and I got lucky, it worked out fine. It is a cute little top but will require ironing, it wrinkles a lot due to the cotton. I have worn it tucked in as a shirt and over a tank as a big shirt...looks cute both ways. :)
Purchased the blue print....really pretty, but it runs much smaller than most of Denim & company . I had ordered my regular size and 99% of Denim and company in that size fits. BUT, this was too small across the bust of all places...I could understand at the hips maybe, but NOT being too small in the bust. Either it was marked incorrectly or this is just a small cut shirt. Size UP for sure!!!!
I purchased 2 of these blouses and really like the pattern but then I washed them and they shrank. So both are on their way back and I will exchange for one size larger to accomodate for the shrinkage.
I like this shirt, I received the blue yesterday, I wear a medium, and it was just fine. I ordered the other two, but haven't received them yet. mine fit perfect. I don't like 3/4 sleeves, so, I cut them off and made short sleeves out of it. looks really nice.
I must say, finally, QVC, has alot of nice camp shirts that are just my style this year for summer. I am so glad. I only shop for clothes on qvc, I'm 65 and no other place is as reasonable in price, and has nice simple everyday clothes I can wear. I really appreciate all the blouses they have this summer. I have bought a whole lot. thanks again qvc. I look good in prints more than solids, so this was perfect. nice material too. not too thin, and it was long enough, not too short, which I can't wear if they are too short.
UNUSUAL FITTING ISSUE
Have lots of Denim & Co and I am never disappointed but this I am.
I ordered my usual sizing but the fit is very small. I'll have to send back
and cancel the waitlist for other color. I don't know if it's because it's tailored front and back or what but it bums me out to have to send this pretty shirt back!
WOW WAY OFF ON THE SIZES
I USUALLY WEAR MED OR LRG IN DENUM AND CO,,,,,,,I ORDERED LARGE, WAY TOO SMALL, WENT TO X LARGE.....STILL TO SMALL....WAITING ON 1X WHICH I HAVE NEVER WORN BEFORE......AND I HAVEN'T GAINED ANY WEIGHT, SO WE'LL SEE.
SHAME BECAUSE THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL. DENIM AND CO IS USUALLY RIGHT ON WITH THEIR SIZES BEING THE SAME. THEY SHOULD HAVE LET US KNOW TO ORDER UP 2 SIZES.
Loved the marine blue but it shrunk!!!
I ordered the marine blue in my usual size and loved it. When it was washed (cold water and removed from the dryer while it was still damp) it shrunk and no longer fit. I liked it enough that I am ordering again one size up.
QVC quality control please pay attention to shrinkage and let us know if we should order a size up. I am giving this a 3 star because I love the shirt but am disappointed with the amount of shrinkage.
Feminine and So Versatile!
I ordered this pretty blouse in both the pink and the blue in 3x. The feminine print is so beautiful in both colors. The pink is true to size but the blue is smaller overall and about 4 inches smaller around the waist which is about as small as I can wear so I'll keep it because it's so pretty. I usually hang my woven shirts to dry anyway so it should be fine (I haven't laundered either blouse yet). These blouses will be cool and beautiful to wear by themselves all summer long. They also look great under several of my jackets and cardigans and I know I'll also wear them open over a cami or tank. I love that these blouses work equally well for the office or for casual wear. What a versatile piece! I'm taking off one star for the inconsistency in size. Otherwise very well done, Denim & Co.! More woven cotton blouses in pretty prints, please? Almost forgot to mention....the pretty buttons are shaped like flowers. So feminine!
Sizing is Way Off!
Like one writer stated, I also order so much I usually don''t write many reviews. However, I do read many of them. I ordered this really pretty blouse for my Mother as well as myself. I usually get an XL top and but this one was definitely not 48.5 inches in the chest as stated in the description. I have even lost some weight and it did not fit me. I have noticed that the sizing on many D&C items has changed over time and it is becoming increasingly difficult to always know what size to order even when you look at the measurements given for a specific item. I hate to criticize D&C because I love it so much, but hopefully, consumer comments will help to improve the line. I give this item two stars because the Marine Blue print is beautiful.
This shirt is super comfortable and very flattering to this plus size mom! Hope they make it in more colors...preferably solids.
TOO SNUG ACROSS CHEST
I have not written reviews much for QVC because I buy soooo much from them, it would be a big job. I do read them all the time.
I felt I had to write one for these shirts. The pattern and colors are just so incredibly pretty. I purchased the lilac and the rose. The lilac fit well, but the rose was too tight across my chest. It actually gapped open? So I decided to wash the lilac one in cold water and hang to dry overnight to see if it shrank before packaging the other one for return. Sure enough the lilac one shrank enough that now there is a small gap, but it still isn't as tight across the chest as the rose. I will have to pin the gap closed from the inside, that is, if I decide to keep it. I'm not at all happy with the pin idea.
I always buy the same size from Denim and Co. and have never had this experience before. I would have ordered the blue one also, had there not been this problem.
VERY DISAPPOINTED QVC.
