Was undecided whether to order this blouse or not (the lilac and white pattern) However on one of Pure's price reduction emails, I did so. Last year I bought several blouses (my usual size 12) ..they had to be exchanged for a smaller size as they were far too big. So bearing this in mind, I ordered a size 10. Not really a relaxed fit, I think the larger size would have been to big on the shoulders and across the back but the length was perfect. Goes well with white trousers but certainly not worth Ã‚Â£144 Pretty blouse though, haven't worn it as only arrived today...hope it doesn't crease easily.
I love this blouse and only gave 4 instead of 5 stars as I would prefer a less formal neckline. I have the floral leaf print which is lovely and I really like the fit - relaxed but not baggy and the length is good. I wear it for times that I want to be a little more dressy and am very happy with it. Travelled well.
This is a beautiful blouse the style is relaxed but at the same time the cut is extremely flattering (gently fitted)I ordered the peach, I was rather surprised at just how peach it is as it looks almost white in picture (love it anyway) I ordered a 14 and not my usual 12:as some of the reviews said it wasn't generous . I would say if you want a more relaxed style, order up. The one thing I love is the length of the sleeves,Pure can sometimes skimp on the length, not this time, The length is perfect Might treat myself to the blue.
Every couple years I've been treating myself to a new Relaxed Silk blouse, have loved the way they fit, how comfy they are. This year, the cut has changed; not as relaxed, a good inch to inch-and-a-half shorter in length and feels tighter across the shoulders and upper back. It's still fits me OK, doesn't really feel snug unless I reach forward as if to hug, but the old cut was PERFECT (please bring it back!). I'm going to keep this blouse because the peach/pink/coral/yellow/taupe floral is as beautiful in real life as in the pictures, and it flatters my coloring, but I don't know that I'll order another one in the future knowing how the fit's changed (not unless I'm reassured that it's going back to previous years' fit). I'm not even sure this blouse is long enough to tuck in anymore--I have a longish torso and this almost looks a bit short and skimpy on me.
Bought the Digital Floral and its is truly lovely. Fits like a dream, and just the right weight for milder weather. Great buy.
I wanted to love this. It was precisely what I was looking for but the fabric, while having a good ""hand"" was way too thin. I loved the fit, though! I buy silk for the cool factor, so a camisole underneath would defeat this purpose. Love the fit though and wish they would go back to a silk-satin blouse in this style. This season's silk-satin style was too short, as if trying to save on fabric. Recommend this top in the ivory with reservations
This is a lovely blouse, but I ordered my usual size, as it said it was an oversized fit/relaxed style, which is the look I wanted. When it arrived, it was shorter than Pure's crepe de chine silk blouses in previous years and was definitely not a relaxed fit, so I had to return it and order a larger size. I also preferred the longer length of previous years which could be worn tucked in or out, but this year's looks short when worn outside with trousers. I am hoping the larger size looks better on because I do like the blouse and wanted it to go with the Oyster coat.
I bought this in the pink. It's lovely but it has to go back because the sizing is much smaller than last season. I measured it against a relaxed silk shirt I bought last year and though it is supposed to be the same size this years is a full 3 inches smaller across the bust. Annoying and inconvenient. Please Pure, let us know in your description if you are significantly changing a style.
I have the geo tile print. Warning: the navy trim and cuffs is very dark and not at all like the more flattering lighter French navy in most of the pictures, which was a big disappointment. However, I will hold on and consider before returning. Better fit, in my opinion, than previous relaxed fit silk shirts. Less voluminous so didn't have to size down, but still soft.
I have several of these washed silk shirts and they are brilliant. I have bought the ditsy print and it is gorgeous! The colours mean that it will go with so many things, black, navy, pinks and white for starters! These shirts wash really well, I hand wash, spin dry and hang on a hanger to dry. Easy to iron and endlessly useful! Can't recommend these more highly!
