Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Floral Print Tiered Maxi Skirt
Not for me
I believe so much in the magic that is Louis that I thought, mistakenly, that his chiffon would be "different" and would work on my chubby frame. NOOOOT. This would be a fabulous skirt on a thin, willowy lady.
I have settled in on a few designers. Louis is one of them. I did return this skirt because the colors are so muted I couldn't find anything in my very substantial closet to match. I did go down TWO sizes after reading the reviews but one size would have been better. Love the style, Louis, but please bring it back in TRUE sizes and either solids or brighter patterns.
With a little revision, this skirt works for me
I normally am not a print person, and I especially avoid florals; however since florals are the trend this season, I had to have one. I found the maxi version to be too much for me even though I loved the colors. There was just to much going on. The skirt has two flounces. I removed the bottom one and now I really like it. I did order down a size, thanks to the reviews, and I'm glad that I did. The fabric is really very nice for the money and .Louis did not skimp on the style.
What a delightful floral print! I bought it in navy, but the other two colors were also very pretty. This is truly a designer print: artistic, joyful and unique. The waist was rather loose in my regular size Small, but nothing that I could not fix. I have wore it with turquoise, coral, red, pink and green tops: immense color versatility. An ideal skirt for the warmer months. Lovely!
I normally wear a 1X but based on the reviews I ordered a Large in the navy skirt and it fits perfect. I did however order a 1X (my normal size) in the navy dolman sleeve top that goes with the skirt and it fits fine. I rarely order anything anymore when it is first shown due to the inconsistent sizing and pricey constant returns. Thank you to all that order and review the items. Of course I risk the item being sold out, but I figure if it isn't returned, then it wasn't meant for me. This was my first Linea order and the quality is there, just wish the sizing was consistent across the board.
Could have been a beautiful skirt; but the sizing is so far off. I or'd my original size first, returned it for a med. and it is still way big. Always had good luck with his sizing before; wanted the coral and the turquoise. Sorry as i would have loved them.
NICE LOOKING SUMMER SKIRT
I try my luck and ordered what was available. Normally I'm size medium (waist approx. 32, hips 38), but medium in this color (turquoise) was sold out, only XS was available. Based on othe reviews stating huge waist I ordered XS, and to my amazement it fits perfect. In the wildest dream I didn't imagined to be size XS, now I know that othe people were right, and it is good thing to read reviews. Skirt is really pretty, but sizing is off.
I FINALLY GOT THIS SKIRT TOO!
I was nervous until I received this skirt because we were given such sketchy "click here" measurements on this item. I do always wear a medium and that's what I got. Yes, the waist and hips are huge, but I don't care. I know I will never get a small, so I'm keeping this Medium. I don't think it will fall down while I'm wearing it. Thank you to whomever returned this Navy Medium floral tiered skirt so that it could come home to me!
Great Maxi Skirt
I have this skirt in the navy and turquoise and am on wait list for the coral. It is very fashionable and lovely fabric. I am not much of a skirt or dress person but find Louis' maxi skirts work well for me. He has a knack for selecting very pretty fabrics and his pieces are always well made.
Waist is huge
I ordered a size down - the waist was still huge. To have it altered would be too expensive considering the price of the skirt. Very disappointed, because I LOVE the fabric. Back it goes.
NANER-NANER BOO-BOO I GOT THIS ONE, DID YOU?
Was I lucky or what? I love-love-love this skirt. Not too big for moi - This actually looks great on my size 3X, 5'4 bod..... I wear with my stunning turq. collection. Great purchase; the material is very fluid & light but opaque enough not to be see-thru. Glad I got this one.
I came in a little to late when this skirt was being presented and watched it sell out, but then when i noticed my regular size was once again available i immediately ordered it and was so excited when it arrived, until i opened the package and saw the yards and yards of fabric WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS SKIRT SO BIG? the sizing is way off and it has to go back , your things are beautiful but if they dont fit what's the point? the last skirt i ordered from this designer had the opposite problem ran to small :( it will be a while before i gamble with S&H cost with this guy again......
