Isaac Mizrahi Live! Bell Sleeve Blouse w/Mixed Eyelet
what with all the sizing problems
I don't know whats going on but it seems everything I order is either too tight or too big.. I cant seem to get it right.. I read the size info on this blouse , I thought this will work perfectly ..nope, hung down too low on top .. too tight across the mid section.. Now I admit I am not a tiny person but this was just way off.. plus the color looked like an old garment .. the white or cream looked dull yellow .. very upset , thought the blouse looked adorable but not for me another shipped charge on my acct .. very disappointed again .
Cut is awful
I love the idea of this blouse. I thought the sleeves were going to be so light and airy for summer and the pleating would be an added touch to dress it up. Wrong, wrong, wrong, The sleeves were huge, the bust was tight and the cut across the shoulders was all wrong so the blouse just sort of hangs like a potato sack. I do not have much luck with Isaac Mizrahi clothing. This will be the last. His clothes simply do not fit me.
Another fit disappointment
Shame on me - I keep ordering Isaac clothing and I am consistently disappointed by the fit. As always, if the item were inexpensive, I might give some slack for a less than perfect fit but this line is not inexpensive and should fit at the very least. Back it went...
for someone tall?
I was excited about this because I love white dress shirts and I thought the sleeves made it kinda hip. On the model, the sleeves are 3/4. When I received the shirt they were full length on me and so the lines just weren't right. I always order things according to the measurements QVC provides but often things look boxy and too big. I wonder if Isaac's things are meant for taller women? I'm 5'4'' and don't ever need to buy petites but on QVC the sleeves are long...fine for slouchy sweaters ( I have 2 of Isaac's sweaters--love them!) but not great for a crisp dress shirt.
Poor sizing and badly cut
This one's an immediate return. I'm normally between an XS and a S in Isaac. The S in this was too tight, the neckline was too low (and I like a low neckline), the upper arms were way too tight, and it was way too long. Overall, a miss in every way--except that the color (blue) was lovely.
I ordered this in the white. It seemed very unique. I ordered up one size. Even ordering up one size, this was very tight acrossed the bust. I have never ordered from this line until now and probably will not order again. I looked at the sizing chart and I went up the one size just to make sure I had the extra room in the bust area. One more size might have worked but would not have had 'extra' room in that area which means I would have had to go up one more size to get the room needed for comfort in one area and I would have swam in it everywhere else. And let's face it, who wants to go up 3 sizes bigger then the size chart. Sorry it went back. Final words, beware of sizing.
I immediately put this in cold water and hung it up to dry for it arrived very wrinkled. Then when I ironed it the wrinkles didn't come out easily. I also think it shrunk a little bit for it was very tight around the hips and Large is my size. I was going to wear it but it wrinkled up before I got out the door so I'm returning it. Also the neckline is a little too big.
Bracelet Bell Blouse
I bought this in blue, Large. I sent it back. I always wear a large,and the upper arms were very tight! And the length was a little long for me as I am 5'5" it would of been better for me if it was a little shorter.
Viewing it on QVC.com I liked the look of this top in the blue but it was unavailable so I ordered the white. Except for the embroidered sleeves, it is less than impressive and in my opinion does not warrant the high price. The fabric is not crisp and seems extremely light. Maybe it would have looked nicer in the blue but the white does not sparkle for me. I will be returning it.
i wore mine at easter and everyone loved it. i wanted the blue but it sold out. so i ordered white. came back today to write review and they had the blue so i ordered it
Neckline too deep
I loved the blouse, the fabric, the style but it was too long and the neckline too big. I love Isaacs designs but I would really appreciate it if he would make his fashions in Petite!
I had to return the blouse. I'm so sad because the color is my favorite color.
Arms too narrow at shoulder
I loved the design and style of this shirt and wanted to keep it but it had two large issues for me.
1. The arms were too small on the biceps for my arms I do not have large arms but I do have muscular upper arms and these arms were way too small and would have ripped had I actually tried to wear it
2. the fabric was very thin for the price I would have liked something that didn't require a tank underneath for modesty reasons. I ordered the white so maybe it isn't an issue with colors but white is way too thin alone
I did have to send this shirt back and requested a refund since a replacement would have the same issues. It is a darling design just not a good fit for me.
