A214923 - Isaac Mizrahi Live! Around the Block Halterkini
I love this suit it is very cute. My only complaint is being busty (38D) I dont get the top support I would like. When I make the halter tighther at the top it really hurts my neck. I will be going to a seamstress to help fix that problem. I always think the suit runs slighter larger than normal.
Love It!! Very Slimming!!
Bought this after reviewing other Isaac bathing outfits. I did size up (normally 6-8 size in the stores) chose a size 10
My first Isaac Mizrahi purchase
I bought this suit in a size 18. The top fits great! However, the bottom is another story. Either Mr. Mizrahi's sizing does not accommodate us girls with fuller behinds or the bottom came from a smaller suit. I am keeping it any because of the top. I went to a local retail store and purchased a bottom that fits. Maybe your bottom to this suit will fit me when I loose weight! What do you think Mr. Mizrahi?
I love this bathing suit. It looks really good on (and I can't say that about many of the suits that I have tried this summer). I am 5'9 and got the size 12 and it fits beautifully. I think the sizing might run a tad larger than some swimwear. Typically it is recommended that you size up when buying a bathing suit, and I am a 10 or 12 in pants and the 12 fits perfectly. I am going on vacation in early August and am actually looking forward to hanging around the pool in this!
I ordered a size 12 in blue and a size 10 in black. (I normally wear a size 12 in most clothing.) They both seem to fit about the same. It's a cute suit, but like other reviewers have noted, there is little support on top. There are removable pads, and the top might offer enough support if you have a smaller cup size. I am a 38-C, and I had to sew bra cups in to get support. Also, I wish the bottoms went up a little higher (to cover more of my stomach), but the suit hides most of what I want to hide.
Love this so much, I bought it in black too. I'm a size 14 and dread bathing suit season, so I thought I'd give online swimsuit shopping a try. The halter and cinched styling allow for some customizing and versatility. It's really cute and youthful (I'm 53), and I feel comfortable and confident wearing this to the beach. I know it's on clearance, but Isaac Mizrahi PLEASE make more in this style!!!
Sizing is off.
I bought this in blue. I find the color of the bottom and top do not match at all. There is deifnately a discernible difference in the two. I wear a size 10. I find the top fits perfectly, but I will somehow have to find a way to make the skirt part smaller as it slides off in the water. This will only do for my backyard pool. I would never feel comfortable wearing this in public as I am tugging it up all the time. I am glad I did not pay full price for this.
Love Isaac's fashions, but not this "Halterkini".
Bottoms do not match the top - blues are different. Yes, it is subtle, but I expected them to match!!!
Too much yellow tone on bottoms, while top has more red tones in the blue.
Isaac, what happened???! With your wonderful genius - what happened to quality control on dyes?
If the bottoms were black or another totally different color, then true color blocking would work. As is, they do not match. Really disappointing, as have seen much better from Isaac..
ALSO, No support on top - & I am a 36B, pear shaped. Should have read the comments before buying!
Am hoping that despite lack of support, can still wear in the ocean (tying the top tightly, despite the circumference under chest is very loose. (Hoping I don't end up exposed!)
Only reason keeping is S&H costs so much. In future, will buy swimsuits where I can try on without paying S&H! Again, am really disappointed, especially when seeing newest lowered clearance price. :(
OMG I LOVE THIS SWIMSUIT!!!
I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS SUIT! IT IS PERFECT! SO MUCH SO THAT I AM NOW AFRAID TO LOSE WEIGHT BECAUSE IT MIGHT NOT FIT WHEN I NEED IT IN A MONTH. I AM 5' 5' 170 LBS AND THE 12 FIT LIKE A NORMAL DEPARTMENT STORE SIZE 12, MY NORMAL SIZE. I AM ORDERING THE SIZE 10, JUST IN CASE I DO LOSE SOME WEIGHT. IF YOU ARE BLESSED UP STAIRS, IT MAY NOT BE FOR YOU, THERE IS NOT A LOT OF SUPPORT...BUT IT IS PERFECT FOR SMALLER CUP SIZES AND DOESN'T FLATTEN YOU OUT LIKE SOME SUITS DO, IT ACTUALLY ENHANCES. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I WON'T BE UNCOMFORTABLE TO BE SEEN IN THIS ONE! THANK YOU ISAAC!!!!
Quality control failed "F"
The item is very nice...love it...which is why i went on wait list for the black. Since I was on waitlist I could assume that i would be receiving a returned item which would have been ok IF the sanitary strip had not been removed from the skirt!!! Not sure what the policy is for worn undergarments at QVC but in stores you can not return undergarments if the strip has been removed. Nonetheless, I could not bring myself to even try this item on because of the missing sanitary strip. Couldn't help but think that someone removed the strip because they wore the item then decided to return it. This item should have NEVER been sent to someone else!!!
Love this suit. Fits well and covers what I want covered. I really like that the top is longer and covers my belly. The tops in department stores are always so short. wish it came in more colors.
I like this suit. The colors on the top and bottom match and it fits great. In fact, when I put it on I actually thought "I can't wait to go to the beach". I just wish it had more bust support.
