February 10, 2013

A Blue Fish Artist!

In honor of Valentines Day we thought we should feature an artist..whose trademark is a heart! We asked artist and Blue Fish enthusiast Sylvia Glesmann to show us her art and her favorite Blue Fish styles.

Sylvia is an 89 years old watercolor artist who specializes in botanicals and flowers, she lives in New Jersey.

Sylvia wears the Vector Tunic and the Avalon Pant and shows off a beautiful floral watercolor.

Meet Sylvia

My name is Sylvia Maria Glesmann, I am a water color painter and paint wildflowers in their natural settings. I have over 45 awards in painting, plus I am past president of 2 art clubs the Raritan Valley Arts Association and American Artists Professional League. I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich Germany.

The reason I wear Blue Fish clothes is because the clothes are very artistic, comfortable, & come in GRAND colors & designs. I have traveled the world over in my Blue Fish!

My favorite thing about being an artist is influencing people and inspiring them by how beautiful nature is!

Size Guide


Blue Fish sizing is uniquely ours. We have developed this system to fit many body types, shapes, & heights comfortably. Here is the Blue Fish size chart and its traditional size equivalent:

00 – only available in select styles. fits up to size 6

0 – fits up to size 10

1 – fits ups to size 16

2 – fits up to size 22

3 – only available in our studio tees & some tunics. fits up to size 26

O/S – one size that fits most customers

Remember that each style is unique & has different measurements--please check the size chart on your item of interest for exact measurements! One style may fit you differently than other styles you have worn before and we strongly recommend checking the measurements before making your purchase.


You might wear a combination of sizes depending on your body shape and how you prefer the drape of your clothing. For instance, you might wear a size 0 pants and a size 1 top. If you prefer looser, more flowy clothing, size up--if you prefer more fitted pieces, choose those closer to your actual measurements. We provide measurements for each style so you can find the best fit for the way you like to wear your Blue Fish.  

If you ever have questions about the fit of our clothing, just give us a call! We will help you find the specific styles that will work best for you. Call us at 800.395.4566 M-F from 9-5 CST to speak to our personal shoppers. You can also email us with any questions at
