Bob Mackie's 3/4 Sleeve Scoop Neck Print Blouse w/ Shadow Sides
Love This Blouse
The fabric is light and comfortable. I like the way the neckline is high so my necklaces drape over it and compliment it.
Didn't work for me
I ordered this in my normal size for Bob Mackie tops and this was too tight on me. Also, I didn't realize this top was not made of the same material as my other Bob Mackie tops and was not a material I particularly like. Sadly, this is one of my few Bob Mackie returns.
i love the coolness of this blouse on a hot day. it lets you breath and looks great. only drawback, it snags easy. be very carefull!!!
Beautiful but I'm on the fence about it....
The reason I am undecided about keeping it is my own fault. I saw it on the TV screen and I guess I automatically thought it would be made out of the same stretchy silky fabric that many tops are today. But it isn't - its poly and thus no stretch. I have gotten so used to the freedom and give of stretch that now a non-stretch fabric just isn't my best choice anymore. Other than that, the top if gorgeous (I ordered the blue), slimming, and lovely. If you don't mind no stretch, this one's for you! I'd love it if Bob would make a similar top with shadow sides, a tad longer than this one, and in his stretchy material.
Flattering and comfortable
I ordered this in the blue, size 3X and I like it. I was a bit surprised by how thin the fabric is, however it is not sheer so that is OK. I find the fabric very comfortable. I don't know if the shadow sides are super slenderizing, but I do find the blouse flattering. The only flaw is, for me there is something a bit off about the cut around the armholes. I find when I raise my arms the fabric pulls a bit across the chest. It might just be my issue though because I have a short torso and blouses and dresses often don't hit me in quite the right places. I don't find it too bothersome, but I did notice it. Others who also have a short torso and are very active might find it more of a problem.
I really liked the print, but it did not look good on me. I thought the shadow sides would be slimming. The fabric was very soft and showed off imperfections. I'm a 1x.
This could work well for others.
I just did not think this was Bob Mackie quality. The fabric was thin like the previous reviewer said, like cheap underwear. The colors were bright and pretty, but fit too tight for me.
fabric is too sheer
I really wanted to like this top but the fabric is just too sheer - almost like underwear sheer! The dark side panels do work to make you look thinner. The design was a bit too bright for me too. This top went back!
This blouse is very pretty as well as looks absolutely great on. I ordered a size large and sometimes with Bob's shirts, an ex lrg might be best. But this fit just right, the blue is gorgeous. Make more like this Bob....maybe a V neck blouse such as this would be greatl. Vneck is more flattering....but this one does look wonderful on.
As soon as you put this top on, you look like you lost 20 lbs. the dark side panels make your sides disappear. Very comfortable fit and beautiful print. Not oversize fits true to size. This top is a wardrobe staple and would be perfect for travel.
Oh my !
I ordered the top and it arrived today. It is gorgeous! I love the shadow sides. Something will have to be worn underneath because it is sheer, but it will be fabulous with Bob's black pants!! Another winner....
