Kathleen Kirkwood Padded Shoulder Cap Sleeve Cami with Lace
Love but needs improvement
I have this cami in 5 different colors and love this product. Unlike some of the other reviews, I adore the padded shoulders and it works perfect for me and yes, I do have a larger bust. I wear these camis all the time with my jackets and blazers. My only complaint is the lining color. I agree with others that the lining should be the same color as the cami. It limits what I can wear it with but I am still very happy with these purchases and well worth the money!
NICE BUT RUNS VERY BIG
I would have rated it higher if it didn't run so big. I normally wear a medium to a small. I ordered the small based on other reviews, but it is very loose and big on me. XS would have worked better. To give you an idea of size, I'm 5'4", 125 pounds, 34B and I am pear shape, bottom half is a size bigger and I often need the medium to fit across my stomach and hips. However, I have tons of extra room on the bottom and top in a small and could easily wear an XS. I would say the the shoulder pads are medium to large....but not 80's big (I should know, I was there).
I ordered the black and neutral and both fit differently and the fit on both was terrible. I'm a 3X and still the armholes were hanging down to mid-chest. The shoulder pads in the black one were distorted and I couldn't get either to lay flat even thought there's a slit to remove them if you want. The black one fit OK through the mid section; however, the neutral one was skin tight. Returned both the next day. I thought these would be the answer, pretty, built-in shoulder pads and bra friendly. Failed on all accounts.
Made for a large bust
Loved the Cami, I ordered 2 but they run very large in the chest. I returned them as I'm not as blessed as a lot of you. The fabric and colors are nice but the bust is very large and was huge under the arms. To bad I was looking forward to them.
I purchased the Kathleen Kirkwood Padded Shoulder Cap Sleeve Cami with Lace in black and grey and I may purchase more. This Cami is so lovely and the fit is superb. Please make more. This Cami is a true hit!
These camis rock!
I have 6 of these in different colors. I love love love each one. I have sloped shoulders & these give me the uplift to make my tops look great. If Kathleen made more colors, I would probably buy those too. Thanks KK...Awesome camis!
pretty and flattering
i picked this up in the ivory and the pink in the 1x. I *might* have been able to wear the XL but the difference wouldn't be worth the return shipping, in my opinion. The shoulder pads are removable (they do seem a little 80s era excessive). There's lining across the bra area. I wear mine with the Denim and Co. shrug and it looks cute n sassy.
So not worth it!!
I gave it one star because I think the lace (beige) is pretty and I like a camisole that is synthetic so that it does not stick to the top I put over it. I am keeping it only because I need it, and don't want to pay more shipping. Thank goodness I can sew. I will need to do quite a bit of work on this to make it useable. The fabric gapes drastically under the arms, the shoulder pads are more suited to an NFL lineman, and I am going to have to practically restructure the garment. The fit is AWFUL. I agree with others, I am getting very disappointed in the sizing at QVC. I should have just gone to a local department store and saved myself the extra work.
Not Worth It!
Very poor fit, lace on shoulder pads bunched up under clothing, poor quality.
Bad Shopping Choice
I was not happy to receive this black cami with a "flesh" colored liner. These would be a much better product if the liner matched the color of the garment. Sewing 101
This product has a flesh cover lining which I think is tacky. As well as if you're not caucasian, which I'm not it doesn't look right. The overall look seemed poor and sub-par.
WHATS GOING ON WITH SIZING QVC???
I orderd this in 2X, the wine color. The sizing ia soo off again QVC! Whats going on? I'm tired sending things back, especially when I check the sizing chart. I have sent back atleast 6 things in the past month. I always check the sizing charts and they are often WRONG! I waste my money in shipping. I really don't want to order from QVC anymore. There are so many websites that ship for free nowadays. The color was pretty but it was huge! Especially under my armpits. The ridiculous shoulder pads even fall down. I am really frustrated with QVC and don't plan on ordering much anymore. This is going back tomorrow. I don't know what happened to quality control. I have sent back Susan Graver, D&Co., Stan Herman, Quacker and the list goes on!
