I like this top. The material is exactly what I imagined it would be.
It is soft to the touch, and feels good on my skin, and has a bit of a stretch to the fabric. The straps have a very good length, which is a feature that I hadn't thought of, but is a valuable feature, because of the various widths of women's backs, and their preferences. These were all of the features that I was looking for and expecting it to have.
It doesn't have a lining, but it doesn't need one. The fabric is light enough that it feels nice and airy, but thick enough that you can't see through it. I ordered this top because I own a very similar halter top, of the same material, that I love, so I figured I knew what to expect.
The features about the top that did not work for me were:
The top presents in an asymmetrical way. This is not a defect, it is just not my preference.
The Cowl neck seems to naturally land in a diagonal slant - I prefer straight.
The torso of the top has ruching on only one side - I prefer a straight fall on both sides.
The top is shorter in length than I imagined it would be - I prefer the fall lower than my ribs.
Last, but not least: The sizing chart is pretty close to correct - but it's still important to know your personal preference of how you want your items to fit and fall on you.
I wear a size small top (U.S.), and according to their chart, I should order a 'Medium' from the company - for a comparable fit. I ordered the Medium, as instructed.
The tops fit my body like a 'U.S. size Small', and just a hair smaller. This will also be a factor in the length of the garment.
*I prefer my midriff tops to be at least 16 inches from the neck to torso - to land below my lowest ribs.
My conclusion: Use their size chart, but be aware that if you want a little bit more room in your garment, pay attention to the structure and material of the item to best meet your preferences.
Finally, they have such a fun and wide variety of reasonably-priced items to choose from that you may like. Make wise choices, and you'll enjoy the garments too.
could’ve been better quality material.
Love the top so much!! Got a ton of compliments.
