Dennis Basso Sleeveless Knit Top with Shirring Detail
This top is an absolute stunner!!!! Fits like a glove in XXS in black! Couldn't wait to order the raspberry. It is so figure flattering, slimming in the middle and the peplum hides a multitude of sins. Armholes are perfect on me. Would love to see more colors and 3/4 sleeves as well as long sleeves. Also some lace and/or color blocking with the center a lighter color than the sides. Dennis, you are the best! Please keep the XXS in your coat line!!!! We love you too!!!!
Sexy modern top
Love the fabric, drape and nipped in waist of these tops. Would love to see more colors. Did not give it 5 stars, as I had problems with gaping armholes, and will have to sew a tuck into both of the tops. They will be great under a jacket for work, or evening out.
More COLORS and remedy the armholes please!
Disappointed that it didn't do anything for me. Loved the style and material but it just hung on my body, maybe just the wrong size. Do give it a try as it is beautiful!
Armholes Too Large!
I was excited to get this top and the body of the garment was flattering, but I had to send it back because the armholes were cut in way too far. I could never wear this to work.
This top is cut beautifully! I'm an hourglass and this top shows off my smaller waist and covers my lil belly perfectly. I have a rather large bust (38F) and I was afraid it would be too snug there, but the stretchy fabric gives to your breasts. I gave it 4 stars only becasue I think the fabric could have been nicer - it's like a spanx fabric, so not for hot, hot weather and I think he could have found a better feeling fabric. However, once I put it on, I was sold! I came back for another black and the rasberry because I know I will live in these under suits (hotel manager career) in the cooler weather! Do more peplum, Dennis!! Please!! I'm a 1x hourglass that sometimes needs to go to 2x to accomodate large breasts, but this one was a keeper in the 1x because of the FABULOUS cut for hourglasss figure!!
Wow what a beauty!!
I love this top. Great quality. Can't go wrong. Runs on the larger size.
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!
tHIS TOP IS SOOOOO SLIMMING! I got it in both colors. Please make more colors. I got the large, I am inbetween a med & large , and it is alittle big but ok. Get this top, you will love it too!
Unlike the previous reviewer, I absolutely love this top and could not rush to the computer fast enough to get another color. Alas, I already have both so as there were no other options available, I will just love the ones I already have. It fits my M size beautifully and I have no issues with the armholes at all-nothing shows that isn't suposed to. What this top does to enhance a womans figure can't be denied. Nothing shows that shouldn't and it drapes and flows so very nicely to enhance the waist and cover the tummy area.
I couldn't recommend this top enough. Just get it and try it-I don't think you will be disappointed.
Dennis, please add some more colors-white? and perhaps make one with sleeves for the fall/winter seasons.
I ordered the small..I am a 31 inch waist 39 hip and 36dd / 38d bust. 5ft 4 tall.. It fit except the seaming thats suppose to end below the bust where the empire waist starts ended mid boob area, its not long enough shoulder to waist area.i don.t have a long torso either..Sent back sorry
I ordered black in a size small. Should have gotten an extra small or xxsmall. Now they are on waitlist. This top is a nice weight and structure but I won't know how I feel about the flaired bottom until I get a size appropriate for me. I love Dennis' coats!
I AM SORRY BUT THIS KNIT TOP IS NOT MADE CORRECTLY. THE UNDERARM AREA SHOWED ALL OF THE SIDE OF MY BRA. IT DIDN'T SEEM TO FIT CORRECTLY. THE TOP LOOKS LOVELY OFF, BUT WHEN I PUT IT ON I THOUGHT IT WAS DEFECTIVE BECAUSE OF THE FIT. I HAD PURCHASED AN XL WHICH I USUALLY WEAR IN TOPS FROM A DESIGNER. I ALSO DON'T THINK IT IS WORTH THE $53 PRICE TAG INCLUDING SHIPPING. SORRY, IT IS GOING BACK BUT FAST.
great top but unwearable arm holes
This top seems well-made with nice substantial fabric, and it was very flattering to my plus-size figure. I especially liked the way the little peplum camoflauged my belly. However, the armholes are cut so deep that they showed several inches of bra, and not just of the side, but of part of the cup. With some sleeveless tops, I can just take a little tuck under the arms and make them work, but this one was unfixable as far as I could see. It's a shame, becasue otherwise I would have been very happy with the top, but I had to send it back.
I wonder if Mr. Basso fitted the top on an actual plus-size model (as opposed to the size 10's that pass for "plus-size" in the fashion world). It seems that such a big fit problem should have been caught.
