October 30, 2014: Love the shirt but sizing is way off. Ordered a size up XXL, but it is way too long, hope it shrinks a bit when I wash it. Order at least 1 size up.
October 29, 2014: It's beautiful, but way too small. I should have read the reviews.
October 29, 2014: Very easy to wear. Note, it does run small so maybe buy a size up. I haven't laundered it yet, so not sure if it will shrink, but so far it is a great buy
October 29, 2014: 2 stars because it is a cute shirt - however, it is extremely thin material and it fits small. If you have any kind of bust, order TWO sizes up. I ordered one size up and it was too tight.
October 15, 2014: This is too too cute. Sizing is too too small. Wish I had read reviews first. Will probly send back and get 2 sizes larger, too cute to pass up!
October 10, 2014: EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. The sizing is so very small. Had to give both tops away to a pre-teenager!!! Wish I had read the reveiws before sending my order. I won't make that mistake again.
October 5, 2014: This is so cute .... however, the sizes are JUNIORS, not Ladies! I usually take a Medium, so I bought a Large, after reading the reviews that said to "size up". It was still way too small! If you can wear a Junior size, then this will fit. If you take a regular Misses size ... it won't fit. Very disappointed because the colors are gorgeous! I'll have to give it away.
September 29, 2014: I wish I had the reviews before ordering. Runs way small about 2 sizes too small. Shirt looks better in the pictures. Very disappointed in this one. Will be sending it back. This is the only thing I've ever been disappointed in off this site. I have ordered many things and they were always great and better than expected. This one is a HUGE disappointment. Material is very thin and it doesn't flare out like in the picture.
September 28, 2014: Size is off. I recommend ordering a size or two larger. If the money wasn't going to charity I would send it back.
September 26, 2014: I ordered the 'Ocean' color - it is even better in person - and ON - than it is in the pic! Thank you, Mr. Galaxy, for offering great products at great prices - along with the ability to have part of the purchase go toward helping animals! Multiple paws up from me! :D
September 24, 2014: I bought this hand beaded tunic in the color grape about a couple of months. I tried it on and it is beautiful. I haven't worn it out as of it but I do have it stored as they recommend twisted and turned so it will remain crinkly. It is so cool! An elegant article of clothing that doesn't require dry cleaning or ironing. Too good to be true, eh? Time will tell. The sizes do run small so if you are top heavy, you may want to consider going up a size or two. Thus far I definitely would recommend this "Crinkly chic" blouse to anyone that fancies it.
September 16, 2014: Loved it. It fit beautifully and I expect to get a lot of wear out of it. Can't wait for the weather to cool down a bit so I can wear it. I'm thinking of getting the blue one as well.
September 14, 2014: Glad I read the reviews and ordered XL instead of L! The larger size fit fine. Beautiful blouse1
September 13, 2014: Beautiful top...unfortunately I didn't read the reviews. I wear a 2-3x normally and ordered the 3x. This top wouldn't fit even I wore the LG size. Incredibly SMALL sizing! I returned this...but have never received the credit for it either. :(
September 10, 2014: The hand beading and embroidering are quite attractive, but the one I got does not flare at the bottom and drape as the ones in the picture. It is a straight up and down side seam, not flared. I bought a size medium and it is true to sizing but is a disappointment in the way it fits.
September 9, 2014: lovely ordered size up fits well looks well made . very pretty .got it in grape will order ocean as soon as i have the $ to
September 8, 2014: Very pretty, but it certainly is NOT a 3X by anyone's standards. I am a big woman, and vary between 2x and 3x in my purchases, and this one is so pulled under the arms I am reluctant to wear it.
August 27, 2014: Warning! I ordered an XXL, and I'm pudgy but hardly enormous - usually wear a size 16 dress. This blouse wouldn't fit the 6 year old who lives across the street! I could barely get it over my head, much less around my 42D self. If you're really skinny - like cornstalk skinny, you could try it!
August 25, 2014: Picture shows this blouse to be flowing and loose at the hem. Instead, it was clingy and straight. Gave it away.
August 25, 2014: very nice, color great, sizing small so order a size up
August 22, 2014: Absolutely LOVE my Grape Indian Combed Cotton Tunic Top! Comfortable to wear, flattering style for us "older gals", excellent workmanship, sequin & bead trim really set it apart. Am planning to order 2 more for my sister's birthday. Highest recommendation!
August 19, 2014: Love the color and sparkle on this top! I've been waiting for it to go on sale in 2 sizes up from my normal size (L or XL). Finally nabbed it in Ocean - debated but ordered the larger size (3x) and it fits nicely. Sleeves a little long (I'm 6' tall) but after washing should do well. Definitely order 2 sizes up!
July 30, 2014: I usually wear an XL but ordered a 2XL i could have been alright with my regular size but i don' t mind the looseness of a size bigger. After you handwash and hang dry it it takes on a more flattering shape for a larger lady with a belly like me. Lol. Very nice tunic. I got one of each color when I went to Vegas on vacation. It was perfect for the 110 degree heat! I'm a red head so I needed coverage from the sun but lightweight....not too sheer. You can wear a tank underneath but I was fine without it. I've purchased a lot of things from the site and love all of them. Such a great cause.
July 27, 2014: Looks too small when it's first opened, but it stretches to the right size. Very pretty.
July 24, 2014: These tunics are very pretty, and fit well, as long as you order two sizes up. I was reluctant to do so since I had lost a lot of weight, and could wear a medium comfortably, but decided that the fit mattered more than what the label said. These run very small, so order up and you will be happy to have a well fitting tunic that can go from casual to dressy. I bought the grape and ocean, and also bought the Soweto ribbon brooches to wear with them. A great look together!
July 10, 2014: Beautiful top, but far too small (and I ordered a size up). Luckily I needed a birthday gift for a smaller friend, and she LOVES it!
June 30, 2014: Shirt is really pretty, but sizing is way off. I ordered a 3X and couldn't even get it over my head.
June 30, 2014: The shirt is beautiful. Too bad I can't wear it. The XXL must be an XXL for a 10 year old!! What a waste of money! I just hope a few animals get some food! Lesson learning though. I'll never fall for that again!!!
June 30, 2014: Love it, but too small to wear until I lose about 20 lbs. I used your measurement guidelines, but about two sizes too small.
June 21, 2014: I ordered the Ocean color in size XXL, and what I got was maybe a size 10 in an odd navy-greenish color. It was so small and so tight, I couldn't get it over my head. Won't be ordering anything else from the store.
June 12, 2014: I ordered this in M in "Ocean"...the color is beautiful and I love the fit, but it was a tiny bit big so came back to order a Small and I see it's not available.
June 11, 2014: Beautiful tunic top! I washed it right away and hung it to dry to take some of the stiffness out of the fabric. It drapes so nicely! In fact, I am ordering the grape one as well!
June 4, 2014: I read the reviews before I ordered it so I ordered the large (would usually order a medium) and it fit fine. I ordered the grape for myself and the ocean for my daughter. Got a lot of compliments the first time I wore it. Very happy with it.
June 2, 2014: Love it...make my middle aged grandmother figure look much better!
May 29, 2014: Love this! Fits perfectly. Lightweight enough for Spring, Summer, Fall.
May 24, 2014: Love love this top, sooo many compliments on this , fits like a glove, very figure flatering. I have a big gut and it slims me right out.Love the fabric, it goes right back in shape. am going to order the grape one now, they do run on the small side. Debi in Maribel , Wi
May 23, 2014: ??Very disappointed ... The sizing is way off...extremely small....will be returning this item....
May 21, 2014: I am so happy to have given support to doggies; however, I am also happy to be having a yard sale Saturday so I can recycle my top...the fit is absolutely awful!
May 16, 2014: Beautiful! Have received lots of compliments on the blouse. Love the color (ocean). It was nice to get the little bag of extra beads & sequins. Only downside is the beads/sequins aren't sewn on very tightly and the loops of thread that creates are very easily snagged and the bead/sequin comes off.
May 10, 2014: Very Very dissapointed, it is way way too small. I don't usually return things, but will be returning this. It was a gift, and will never ever do.
May 5, 2014: Just got mine today in the grape! The top is beautiful, but not really flare cut like it looks in the picture, and runs very small - for plus sizes order at least one size larger.
April 17, 2014: Beautiful dark blue-green Ocean color with understated flash from tiny sequins and beads. It does run small though, and even the 3XL is tight on me although I am usually a 1X. Still, I can't resist wearing it. I just wish I had the abs for it! LOL
April 13, 2014: After reading the other reviews, I ordered 2 sizes up, and the shirts fit almost perfectly. I ordered one in each color, and absolutely love them. If I had to find a flaw, it would be that the beaded yokes give the impression they completely cover the bosom area, and maybe its just my bosom (lol) but the beaded area does not completely cover that area. However, it does fall in a good spot, the shirts are gorgeous, the colors are gorgeous, craftsmanship is great, appear to be wearable after a hand washing and drip dry. Highly recommend.
April 8, 2014: It's very pretty, but WAY small. I'm going to have to give it away because it doesn't fit anyone here.
April 8, 2014: Very cute, lightweight crinkle cotton. Runs small. I am a 10-12, 38" chest, and ordered an XL. I probably could even wear an XXL. The Mandarin collar is very flattering, and the fit looks similar to the model. The 4 stars is only because of the sizing. It will look cute over jeans, leggings, or capris.
April 5, 2014: I love it. Be sure to buy 2 sizes up, it's very small. The arm length will be too long but folding it up is no problem.
April 2, 2014: I love it but yes you have to go 2 sizes up.
February 20, 2014: This will be my new "go-to" top with jeans. The grape is a pretty color true to picture. Washes beautifully, & great for packing: just hang up & it's ready for wearing.
February 16, 2014: I ordered 3 sizes larger for the ocean, it fit fine but sleeves a little long, so I ordered 2 size larger for the grape and it is perfect. Normally I wear a medium. Gets lots of compliments and it can dress up or down.
February 14, 2014: Beautiful shirt. I would go one size bigger. I'm usually m and i ordered xl. It works as this is a loose shirt, but L would probably be fine. Everytime I've worn it, I've gotten compliments.
February 13, 2014: bought the ocean, it is lovely, but just a bit on the small side, over my bust. i will keep it, but sizing is not true.
January 30, 2014: Very thin material. Runs unbelievably small. ordered a 3x because of the previous comments. I wear an xl, no way it will fit. Gave away to my daughter who wears a Medium and it fits fine? what's up with that?
January 29, 2014: Two sizes up is too much! I wear this, and receive lots of compliments, but I keep hoping it will shrink. The crinkles do stretch out, but don't bounce back much, so it is more drapey/less fitted than in the photo. It is beautiful, though.
January 24, 2014: Oh my, I cannot tell you how much I love this shirt. I agree with everyone else tho, you do need to go at least 1 size bigger. Most reviews say go up 2 sizes, but I went up one. When you get it, it will look very small, but it stretches. I got the purple. Love it so much I am going to get the blue one, too! Because it stretches, it forms nice to your body and will stretch only as much as you need it too. Love this shirt!!
January 22, 2014: Just received my Tunics today, one of each color, they are Great !! Other reviews are right, you need to order larger than you normally wear, I wear an XL and ordered 3XL . The fit is perfect, no hanging down on shoulders ! I love mine.
January 18, 2014: I was EXTREMELY disappointed when my beautiful grape colored top arrived. I normally order 2x but seeing that this was made in India, I knew I needed a size larger. When it arrived, it would have fit my 12 year old granddaughter! I wanted to help your organization and of course get a new top but I need to return this with a full refund of my money. Maybe some one needs to teach the Indian seamstresses that it is BUST (NOT CHEST) size 48 to 50 INCHES not centimeters for a 3X !! It is a beautiful garment but definitely NOT realistically sized! Thanks for providing review space. Barbara Palmer
January 17, 2014: Lovely color (ocean) and nice fabric but runs VERY SMALL. I normally wear L or XL (I'm on the tall side at 5'7", and large busted), so I ordered an XXL based on contradictory Reviews (some say fits true to size, others suggest getting 2 sizes larger), but I cannot even get it on. Cannot wear it at all. Will have to lose 2 sizes first! LOL
January 11, 2014: I love this blouse; the fit, color, easy care and the way I look in it. I get compliments whenever I wear it. I ordered the XL and ran true to fit.
January 7, 2014: I absolutely love this top, however, I ordered 2 colors in the same size. One was larger than the other. Normally I wear a medium or large but went up to the XXL after reading the reviews. The ocean fit fine and the grape was too roomy. Its a gamble whether it will fit perfectly.
December 31, 2013: I love this top! It's super comfortable and sparkles so nicely. I just wish I had bought both colors when my size was still in stock.
December 23, 2013: I wear a medium - thankfully, I ordered an XL sized shirt - due to the reviews. It is curve hugging (v sexy) and since I have longer arms, I was v pleased to see the sleeves hit as they do in the photo - oh, and it looks absolutely GORGEOUS on. I am "saving it" to wear for for a v special occasion.
December 7, 2013: I ordered a 3xl, fits more like a medium. If you are tall with long arms and a tiny frame this is the top for you. Otherwise do not order.
December 6, 2013: I love it! Is very comfortable!
November 21, 2013: Very pretty but runs VERY small I normally wear an XL and ordered a 3X and still kind of snug.
November 13, 2013: Ordered one of each color (2 sizes larger than I usually order, after reading other reviews) They fit perfectly! Very Nice for the Price :)
November 7, 2013: Love the look of the tunic. But could not order any as when I read the other reviews I wanted to order a XXL but they didn't have any in stock. Like other lady sure hope they restock. Would love to buy one.
October 24, 2013: Based on the other reviews I ordered a much larger size than I usually wear and it fits wonderfully,. Received many compliments, the most was from my husband who couldn't stop saying how beautiful it was!
October 6, 2013: Extremely small - not sized correctly. Had to return. Very cute, though.
October 5, 2013: I ordered the largest size because of other reviews. I usually like a 22 blouse, do not like things tight. When I opened it, I thought, NO WAY this will fit! But I tried it on and was amazed! It fit beautifully and was very flattering and comfortable. I came back to order it in the other color, but it was not available in the large size. Dang! I love it, hope they will restock! I also love that to store it, you just twist it up - since I travel a lot, that will come in handy! I've washed it twice, in my machine on delicate, by itself, and then twisted it up, let it dry shook it out and it is good to go!
August 3, 2013: Agree with other reviewers; I ordered 2 sizes larger and the tunic is a great fit. I love the color and style and the fact that extra sequins were included was a bonus. Great customer service too!
July 6, 2013: Such a beautiful top! I have one in both grape & ocean, and the colors are stunning. I typically wear an XL and ordered a 3XL based on previous reviews. I probably could have gone with a 2XL, but the style is billowy anyway and I just love it. Highly recommended.
June 11, 2013: Very attractive; can be worn casual with jeans or dressy. Easy wash & care. Careful of sizing; I normally wear a small/medium but a large is just right.
May 28, 2013: Very pretty shirt with fabric that is lightweight and flows over my trouble areas! I read the online reviews and ordered up two sizes and it fits very nice, loose over my rather large chest and fits below the hip. I ordered the ocean and machine washed inside out on "hand wash" setting and dried on a hanger. Love it!!
March 19, 2013: Pretty but way too small... have to send back. Very disappointed. :(
March 8, 2013: Really loved my tunic. Goes nice with dress pants or jeans.
March 3, 2013: Before purchasing this blouse, I read the reviews noting the sizing issue. I normally wear a medium, so I decided to go up 2 sizes & purchased an XL. The XL is a perfect fit. The sizing on these blouses s/b redone to fit what what they should truely be. The blouse is beautiful and can be worn dressed up or as casual. The extra beads that come w/it is also nice in case any need replacing later.
February 22, 2013: I read the other reviews and went up two sizes. Still WAY too small. Otherwise well made and nice looking. Too bad I can't wear it.
February 1, 2013: February review was mine. I normally wear an XL or a 1X, but didn't want to take the chance so I ordered the 3XL. My intuition was right, because it fits perfectly. For some reason these tops run in extremely small sizes. Got the purple in the mail today and I love it, glad this one fits.
December 30, 2012: I have to agree with an earlier review - the garment is beautiful, but sizing is WAY off, it is definitely too small and it does not allow for a larger busted woman. Unfortunately I have to send it back.
December 27, 2012: Garment is beautiful, but sizing is WAY off! I ordered one size up and it is still too small. It is going back.
December 6, 2012: Lovely top. Unfortunately, Greater Good's idea of large does not allow for a C cup. Now I have to find a relative who can wear it.
October 10, 2012: Very pretty & gorgeous green color. Even comes with a bad of extra beads. Check size chart & go up at least one size from your USA sizes if you want it more flowy. Hand wash....but no ironing needed. I love this blouse for casual or dressy!
August 27, 2012: Lovely, light fabric and color. Hand-washes nicely. Fit is exactly as described. Don't be tempted to think it will stretch to fit!
