G.I.L.I. Cap Sleeve Wrap Top with Side Tie and Ruffle Collar
It' a top designed for a younger woman in my opinion (It's about time). bautiful fit. The small ruffles make it look more feminine. Sits nice on the waist line. My stomach was not exposed at all. The only compaint is that it's difficult to get side tide through the little loop. Please bring more clothing from G.I.L.I
Got it today, wore it today!
Lovely color (cranberry) and great fit. Can't wait to receive the cobalt one! A winner, ladies. I guess I don't have a long torso. It wasn't too short and I didn't have to fidget with it.
I bought this in black size XS and had no problem with fit I used the size guide that you click and bought according to the 36" chest measurement and it fit 36B bust perfectly. I have worn this numerous times with a black cami underneath for work and it did not feel too short and I am 5'5". I am hoping XS tops will be available again would love the blue or pink.
Girly yet classy
Bought this in the Cherry XXS. I am a true XXS Petite, at 5'3", 90 lbs, and a chest measurement of 32C.
I read some of the reviews about the chest being too open. Ladies, when you put this one on, pull the tie (that goes in the hole) so that the end that attaches to the blouse is almost in the hole. That "closes" the chest up a bit and creates a V-neck, which is flattering to most of us.
The ruffles on the neckline gives this a girly effect, but not too much. I intend to wear this top to the office, with a 3/4 length sleeve jacket and without the jacket for dinner afterwards. The cap sleeves also makes it interesting, not plain or bland.
I am glad for the looooooong tie because I can pull it around my tiny waist (22") at least 2 times, making the whole blouse seem more secure.
Please bring this blouse in white. I can see us ladies wearing this in white with cropped jeans in the summer, a Red Dooney florentine handbag and some of our Judith Ripka stuff. Classy!! Fabulous!
Pretty by cumbersome
I like this blouse. It's sexy and feminine but its very open in the chest area. I have to wear a Camisole with this. The belt is a pain to get it just right and to tie a nice bow is even more of a pain. Don't ask me to make a bow cause I cant. Even though it looks pretty and sexy, I'm constantly fixing it....Pulling it down, fixing my belt. The slightest move, from sitting standing etc...I feel I have to keep adjusting the back the front the middle...I'm still keeping it because it's different, but if I had tried it on at a store, I'd would have left it there.
I finally received my backorder of this top in black and I will have to say it was worth the wait! I ordered an XS and it really fits great. It has just the right stretch and it really can be dressed up or down for the right occasion. Lisa really picked a winner when she saw this one! Go get one today!!
LOVE, but sizing issues : (
I absolutley LOVE this shirt on Lisa R. and on the models. In fact, I had noticed it on Lisa before it was even available on QVC.com or the LRS. WHen it became available a few days before it aired on the LRS,I went crazy ordering all colors and in 2 sizes, just t make sure I would get the right size. Both the XXS (my usual QVC size) and XS just in case it were to run small. BOTH THE XXS AND THE XS WERE EXTREMELY TOO SHORT. BUT I LOVE,LOVE,LOVED THE SHIRT, SO I TRIED TO MAKE IT WORK.......CAMISOLE, ASKING MY TAILOR, ETC...IT WOULDN'T;T FIT ME APPROPRIATELY. AS I WENT TO SIZE UP, THE SHIRT WOULD BECOME TREMENDOUS IN THE SHOULDER REGION, & STILL TOO SHORT IN THE LENGTH OF THE GARMENT. I GUESS YOU NEED TO HAVE NICE SHOULDERS TO BE ABLE TO FIT INTO THIS CORRECTLY? ALSO, THERE WAS A LOT OF EXTRA MATERIAL IN THE CHEST AREA WHEN I SIZED UP TO AN XS (WHICH I DID SINCE THE SHIRT WAS MUCH TOO SHORT IN MY NORMAL SIZE OF XXS). MY BUST IS A 36 C/D, AND THERE WAS STILL TOO MUCH ROOM IN CHEST AREA. EVENTUALLY, A SIZE SMALL BECAME AVAILABLE, SO I TRIED THE SMALL. STILL TOO SHORT ON ME....AND THERE WAS FAR TOO MUCH EXTRA MATERIAL IN THE BUST AND SHOULDERS THAT MY TAILOR COULDN'T;T HELP ME WITHOUT REARRANGING THE ENTIRE PIECE. TOO BAD...I LOVE IT! IT LOOKED GORGOIS ON LISA R, AS DOES EVERYTHING. IT LOOKED WONDERFUL ON THE MODELS. I COULDN'T GET IT TO FIT ME. I LOVED IN ALL COLORS, ESP THE BLACK! BUT I COULD NOT MAKE IT WORK. I WISH IT COULD BE REVISED.. I READ OTHER REVIEWS, AND I NOTICED THE SAME COMPLAINTS. I THOUGHT IT WAS ME, BUT IT SEEMS T BETHE GARMENT. IT IS PRETTY. IF IT FITS YOU...I WOULD BUY IT IN EVERY COLOR....ESP. IN BLACK!! Lisa is fabulous, and so kind to share her wardrobe with us...just wish they could make the sizing in some of the pieces from GILI fit better. I was sad to return all 3 sizes I had tried. Can't say I didn't try!!
I got so many compliments when I wore this to a party and turned around to find a couple of peeps taking my pic. Do not hesitate. Flattering top...seriously...get it.
If you like showing a lot of cleavage than this is the blouse for you. It does run big but even if you order a smaller size the blouse wraps too low and exposes too much for all the world to see. Not for me so it went back the same day I received it in the mail.
why didn't I listen to other reviews- does run big
The blouse is nice- ordered a medium- usually a 10 in regular store shirts- a small or med on qvc...36c, 142 lbs...bigger up top than on bottome...a small would have been much better but too lazy to send back and hope to still wear...fabric and color of the "red" are nice- nice design- just order a size down than your normal "Q" size!
I originally ordered this in an XS - when it wasn't coming back in stock and read some of the reviews about it running big, I figured I would try in a Small . I received it yesterday, I am giving it 4 stars because the color is beautiful and the blouse itself is well made and would be flattering in the right size. This top runs big - I am normally a 4P and this small is huge on me, I am skeptical if an XS would be small enough. I hope extra sizes come back.
Not a Good Fit
This is the type of top that should be tried on.Too big in the bust area Easier to take up slack in the tie area.
Could never wear this to work. Thought of ordering a size down but did not want to pay to try it on only to send back again.
Lisa is contstantly telling everyone she is an xsmall. I guess we should listen when we hear this. This top looked great on her bu????t . . . .do not order it above her size on this one. Disappointed.
