Carole Hochman Mini Mums Cotton Jersey Chemise
Nice Light-Weight Summer Gown
Perfect summer night gown. It washes beautifully and the weight of the fabric is just right for hot summer nights. I usually wear a medium which was too large for me in this gown. (37"bust, 30" waist, 135 lbs. and 5'3"). The small fit better, but on both sizes the arm holes are cut weird...they flare out at the arm pit when I raise my arms instead of fitting close to the body. For that reason I gave it a 4 star rating. I still love it, though. The lilac is a little washed out, but the pink is very pretty.
Happy with this item
I ordered one then ordered another one after I received the first one. I think it is nice as far as comfort and also as far as the clearance price is. Not the prettiest item there is but for me it is a winner. It is the best thing I have seen out there compared to price and comfort to what I have seen in the stores. I live in Las Vegas and considering how hot it gets here in the summer and late spring it is just right for me. Not too thin as another item I have purchased in the dept store and not too thick, it is just right. It is not see through and the perfect length for me. All too often the length is too short so when you sit down it is barely covering your backside.
Fabric not as advertised
Presented on air as being very soft, tee shirt material. Returned because found the fabric too cheap.
Great buy, great gown.
It's dead of winter and I am overjoyed to have a new summer gown. It's perfect. Fit, style, colors, too too wonderful. Soft quality fabric. A happy happy gown. Just what I needed to remind myself I will survive this very cold winter. Enjoy!
Summer go to nightie!
In the summer on hot humid nights this was my go to nightgown. I am always hot so this was perfect for me. I came back and bought it in a second color, I can't live without it!
This chemise fits me perfectly. I have two of them along with the matching kimono robes. I wear a size L and that's what I bought. I've washed them both a few times now and they remain perfect albeit a teensy bit smaller (but not enough to matter or notice). I like the light-weight fabric. It feels weightless when I sleep and there is plenty of room without being bulky. There are no issues with this chemise being see-through or too revealing but I do prefer to wear this around my family with the kimono robe over it. For me, this is my go-to nightie on warm nights. Will order a third one soon. Thank you, Carole!
Nice fabric, poor sizing
I liked the lightweight fabric of this chemise; however, the cut and sizing was terrible, imo.
In a 3X, this fit me so tightly through the hip area, there would have been no way to sleep in it, imo, because it would have been uncomfortable imo.
Armholes, were huge; sides of my entire leisure bra were exposed and my skin down to my waist on both sides of the garment.
All of this review is my opinion. I would not have purchased this item had I known about the cut and sizing issues.
Carole, go back to your great collection of a couple years ago, please.
This is a lovely, lightweight gown -- ideal for the dog days of summer. The print is charming, and on me, it comes to the knee. I purchased this in two colors to match with the cotton kimono, as noted below. They make a delightful ensemble, and would be a welcome gift for Mom or anyone you love!
Returned this as soon as I received - it is horrible on me. It is so thin it looks like it cost $1.00 to make. Really cheap material.
