This is one of my all-time favorite blouses. I'm a sucker for balloon sleeves and this piece did not disappoint! The one I received ran a bit large. My weight fluctuates often and at the time of purchase, I was a size S, but had to size down to an XS so that the sleeves weren't so long (I am also petite, with short forearms and calves). This did help life my bust, though, which was also a plus! I love pairing it with my faux leather skirt for a classic look.
As much as I like Vixen/LFEN designs, for me it's a hit or miss as the items are usually designed for bustier girls. The Bishop blouse is one of those items. Although I fall clearly into the size XS according to the size chart (35"/32C bust, 25.5" waist) on me the fit is a bit loose. Even with a slightly padded bra there's still some gaping on the cleavage, definitely not the look I was hoping for this price point and I cannot size down. Besides that is a very elegant top, nice ivory color, bummer it didn't work perfect for me.
This is the perfect peasant blouse. I love using it for layering and adding a little Victorian class to any outfit. I did need to take in the elastic at the wrist but it's a fabulous staple piece.
Oh my goodness I LOVE this shirt! It fits me perfectly (measurements are 36” and 28”, went with a medium), and just is such high quality. I get compliments whenever I wear it. The sleeves are a great length, and I love that you can wear them long, or if I push them up, it gives a different, yet still dramatic sleeve. I was nervous it might be a little too “costume-y”, but it really wears beautiful, and can be dressed up or down!
Love this top! The material is soft, thick and comfortable. I usually wear an XS but wanted to be safe ordering online and went with the small. The small fits nicely, if I wanted a tighter fit I’d size down to the XS. I am about 32E-26-34. The top is very flattering. I usually don’t wear low-cut tops due to having a larger bust but this looks clean and classic despite the low neckline.
I already have this top in black and I love it. I had to make the elastic in the sleeves tighter on the black one, and will be doing the same with this so the sleeves don't drop down past my wrists. I ordered an XS.
I love this blouse! I bought a similar styled blous Micheline Pitt designed for Unique vintage and when I saw this one I knew it was going to be worth the purchase. The material is so soft and the fit is to the "T." I've gotten so many complements on it.
A great top. I’m between sizes and had to size up to 2X for this one. #bigboobs
Snugger elastic at the wrist would have worked for me. I may alter that so I don’t need to push the sleeves past my elbow to adjust them.
Love it! Not super sheer. And the fit is very flattering. I’m at a 30 inch waist and I felt like I could have sized down. If you’re bustier than a 36C then maybe don’t size down.
Amazing, Not sure why I hesitated on this but now I need all the colors.
Great day to night top
Lovely fit and make.
This top is what dreams are made of! The fabric is super soft and the bishop sleeves fall nicely.
