A215219 - Liz Claiborne New York Short Sleeve EmbroideredBib Top
I received this in the yellow. I was afraid it was going to be mustard in color, but it is not. It is a nice clean yellow color. I am between a small and medium, so, based on the reveiws and the material of the shirt, I decided to go with the medium, and it fit perfectly. This will be a perfect summer top for the office. After laundering, it will probably need to be touched up with the iron, but that isn't a problem for me. I'm glad I purchased it especially at the sale price.
LOVELY but runs waaaaay small
Loved the blouses, the yellow and pink, and the style, and the mandarin collar. I ordered one in my size (S) and a Medium "just in case". The M was way too tight in the bust, the S was like XXS. I'd exchange them for Large if there were any left, but can't so I'm returning them. I do recommend the M if you are small and have a rather small bust.
Fit is just not right!
Big on the top and tight on the hips and too long. Going back!
Love this top! Beautiful colors and great fit! Just order size you normally wear. Went back for more colors but they were sold-out. Please bring this top back! More colors too.
Unfortunately Too Small
The pink blouse is unfortunately too small in the bust and waist. I checked the size chart and determined I should order a medium. It does fit in the shoulders, and the style is good for my figure. I will have to decide if I will exchange for a Large or if I'll just return the blouse and ask for a refund. It is much prettier than it shows on TV.
when will I learn?
Liz is just not for me. This blouse is huge in the shoulders and tight in the bust. I liked the idea of the neckline - but boy, this is just not well designed for me anyway. I do like the cotton material so gave it two stars.
Pretty and Comfortable
Love this blouse! The embroidery detail is so pretty, love the mandarin collar and the sleeve is so feminine. I bought it in black which really dresses up white pants for summer. Works well with jeans too. Lightweight cotton requires a little pressing after washing but I don't mind that because this blouse is one of my faves!
This arrived well before I needed it. Fast delivery. It was exactly what I wanted. In fact, I am going to wear it with more than the skirt I ordered to go with it. The fit was just right. I love the color. The sleeves were a little short, but with the hot summer we are having, it will be perfect!
Size was off
I returned my blouse today because the top was way too small. I'm afraid to order the next size up because it might be off too. I can't see spending 7 dollars each time I return it. I was very disappointed.
Pretty summer blouse
This is a very pretty blouse, and yes, I would recommend it. To comment on the mixed reviews regarding sizing, I ordered 2 sizes, and I found it true to size. What may be different to others is that this blouse is slightly cut inward, to give you more of an hourglass shape (which I love) and it does not have a boxy fit. It is also possible that their size may have run smaller in a particular color, which has happened to me in the past. I actually don't buy a lot of clothes from QVC (beauty products, yes), because on me, I feel a lot of the tops are cut "square" and "boxy", and that cut doesn't flatter my body shape. This blouse flatters my figure and the length is perfect because I am tall. I wear a QVC size small and a department store size medium. A length of 26-27" is perfect for me. My suggestion to others is to order 2 sizes and see what looks best on you and what you are most comfortable in. One other comment about the shoulders is that they are not too "poofy" (the Liz rep. said that this blouse makes your shoulders look "broad" , which was not the look I wanted). Overall, this is a pretty blouse, with a flattering fit, and I actually think it looks nicer in person. Maybe next season, Liz will come out with a 3/4 sleeve version of this top with more color choices like moss green, french blue, and dark purple.
I love all Liz Claiborne clothes, I have been wearing since 1980. They fit perfectly, I never had to alter them at all. True to my size(S). Now I am intruducing my 18 year niece to Liz clothes, she likes them too.
Love it, too
Yes, I love it, too BUT it runs small through the middle. It fit perfectly in the shoulders, bust, and arms; however the waist was too tight. Bizarre. Anyway, I'm sending it back and re-ordering the 2X BECAUSE the design and fabric is so beautiful. Other 2X colors are wait-listed. The yellow is an excellent, striking, deep lemon color.
