They were a perfect fit for bB as well, thankfully!
bB bought both colours. In white…
And in purple…
It would have been good if the tops were made a little shorter, as I expect girls of my size would usually not be very tall. But that’s a small thing to rectify. Easily fixed at the tailor’s.
One other thing bB wished for was that they made this in a different material. It would be a very lovely piece if they used a satin or silken material, although I guess it would drive up the price. It’s not a horrible material as it is, it’s just a polyester material which feels slightly stiff, I’m guessing from the dye. This may soften up along the way with more washing.
The stiffer fabric does help to hold the shape and create a smooth silhouette when wearing the top. There is a soft lining within which helps cut down skin contact with the stiffer outer layer.
bB is quite happy with the Quinn tops. The fitting is perfect, which is rare for a non-stretchy cheongsam top. The buttons are slightly annoying to fiddle with, but bB can live with this.
Sizing: bB is a UK4-6 and bought the Quinn tops in XS.
Hope this comes in handy for your decision, ladies!
