Comfortable and light This top is great by itself or underneath a sweater or jacket. It is lightweight, soft, and comfortable. Fits loosely and is flattering. Hits in just the right spot if you leave untucked. Does not require a camisole underneath (I purchased the black color). June 6, 2013
Love this shirt I love this shirt. I bought it in classic off white. I can wear it to work and court, it's not too tight and obviously not low cut, yet still a very flattering fit. I love that I can wear it with just about any color pant (black, grey, tan, plaid...) and it goes well with all of them and that I can layer it with cardigan. Just a great shirt, especially if you need to dress professionally. June 5, 2013
KLMorris Very see-through! Would look nice with a cami underneath but not by itself. June 5, 2013
Not True to Size I bought this top online in red, and I love the color. Unfortunately, I am going to have to return it because it is huge on me. I am 5'6" and 118 pounds (small-chested), and the XS was too big; it had no shape. I would go down a size if you are going to order this top. It may look better on bustier girls! June 5, 2013
Perfect I just bought this shirt for my daughters graduation. I loved how it felt on..the color is vibrant and chic. June 4, 2013
Perfect for layering! I own this shirt in black and pink. A must for the office. Fits comfortably under a suit jacket. June 4, 2013
Great summer work shirt This top is perfect for the office. It's light weight and perfect for the summer heat. The little cap sleeve is just enough that I wouldn't consider it sleeveless. The red is a beautiful tomato color; bright and springy. I normally buy a 6 or 8 in tops; I bought a small. It's flowing, flattering and comfortable. June 4, 2013
Good for Layering i love this shirt - i have it in two colors (red and blush) - very elegant looking - great for underneath a suit or by itself. you can easily dress it up with some nice necklaces. June 4, 2013
Awesome shirts I am 5'8" 170 lbs. Bought a large and it fits perfectly. The top is loose fitting, but slimming. I bought it in red flame and off white. The red looks great with olive skin. LOVE them with my Limited dark skinny jeans! May 25, 2013
My new staple I love this top because of the fit. It's loose fitting but not too much to be baggy. I have recently come to the realization that I've gained weight and I do not feel self conscience in this top. I can wear it to work with a suit jacket or alone with crops on the weekend. Because I love the fit so much I bought the red and blush and will probably go back for the black. May 22, 2013
Can't go wrong with this one... Great layering top, true to size and lays nice under a suit coat. As others have mentioned, a staple item for a working woman! May 3, 2013
A wardrobe staple for a working woman like me. Looks great under a jacket, cardigan or alone and you can wear it with a suit or your jeans. No problem with washing. Bought it in every color. April 15, 2013
Love it! Super confortable and chic, looks fab under a jacket or alone , great quality and it washes very nice!!! April 10, 2013
Love these! Love these tops! I currently have two, but if The Limited would come out with more, I would absolutely stock up! They tuck in very well to a skirt, and also fit well under a cardigan. Lightweight material but great quality, AND I never have to iron! They do run a little big so size down. For reference, I'm 5'6" 130 lbs 34C and the XS fits well with even a little extra room. April 10, 2013
Short cap sleeves - great for layering I have this top in a few different colors and love it! The fit is true to Limited sizing, the quality is great, and after several washes, the top still holds up and keeps its shape. I think this top pears great with skinny jeans! April 4, 2013
Lightweight I have two of these tops (peach and oatmeal). Nice light material with good fit. March 15, 2013
Great for suits I have this shirt in almost every color. I love wearing them under suits. Great, lightweight top. The only problem I've found is that when I get them in the mail they are folded and I have a hard time getting the wrinkles out. Oh well, I'll deal with that for such a good shirt. March 8, 2013
Great Staple! I love this shirt! It does have a bit of static cling to it, but one you get past that it is fantastic. It is light and comfortable. It isn't tight but it is still very feminine. I need one in every color February 26, 2013
Love these tops! My favorite tops by far! Lightweight, loose fitting (but not boxy), good quality, and gives me a nice casual look that I can add a scarf or jewelry to for a more polished look. Machine washable, doesn't wrinkle horribly like some of my other tops. Great for busty girls (I am a 38DD). I bought the black one first, then ordered the dark blue and slate grey. I have a feeling I will be owning this top in every color, perfect for all seasons! Highly recommended! February 6, 2013
great wardrobe basic This piece is a nice wardrobe basic that is not going to be a statement-maker or inspire an entire outfit on its own, but it is great layering go-to. It's not form-fitting, but also isn't shapeless, so it's chic yet appropriate in the office and looks perfect under a brightly colored blazer. I'm usually between a XS-S; I went with the XS and am happy with the fit. January 26, 2013
Low quality - looks cheap I love shells and bought two of these to wear with my many cardigans. At first glance, I was pleased with the item. But as I was wearing it for the first time, I realized how cheap it looks and it wrinkled very badly throughout the day. I wish Limited had used better quality materials in making this top. January 25, 2013
Love! As the other reviewers mentioned, this is a staple in your wardrobe. I wish they had more color options. This is a way better fit than the Layering Shell top. I am between a small and medium and I got an xs (partially because im petite). January 5, 2013
great wardrobe staple I wear this with everything - under blazers, cardigans, or all by itself. It gets so much use. December 14, 2012
Great basic; will get a lot of wear out of this! I love his top: the cut and fit are perfect for me. I often wear a 4 in tops and ordered the extra small. I got this in the grey and black and will be also getting it in other colors. It is versatile and a fantastic basic. It can be worn with layers in the winter and alone in the summer. Other reviewers found the fabric to be seer, but I did not have this issue at all. LOVE this top! December 14, 2012
Love it Such a great staple item for any wardrobe. A must have! December 13, 2012
Layering Shell is a MUST! I love the layering shell! So many things I can pair it with. I bought it in black and plan to buy several other colors. This is a great look all year round. December 13, 2012
Like it! A great layering shell underneath cardigans and V-necks. I read other reviews before purchasing it and agree that it is more sheer than it seems so you would need another tank underneath if you want to wear it by itself! I bought the size that I would normally buy for any tank and it's great! I bought it in white and black! December 13, 2012
great wardrobe staple I bought this in black and white and wear them all the time under blazers and cardigans. They go great with skirts or pants and can be dressed up or down easily. Very loose fitting and comfortable. In my case I need a little slimming and I think it does that pretty well because its loose and also a little longer length. December 6, 2012
Perfect Layering Top Love this top - fits loosely without looking sloppy. Perfect for laying under a cardigan or blazer. November 29, 2012
Huge and See-Through The material is basically see-through and would never work in any kind of professional environment, even as a layer under a cardigan. Plus, it has no shape to it whatsoever and looks like a tent. The sizing is inconsistent on these tops, as I ordered the Celebrity Pink (which is more "raspberry" than "pink") version of this top, and it fits much better and is much more work-appropriate than this. Even at half-price, this item is not worth the cost, and it will be returned. November 29, 2012
