Wore this once and washed, hung to dry and fluffed on extra low setting. The top shrank so much, it now looks like a crop top. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryDW This top is quality.
Great weight, slightly longer length and very flattering.

I really wanted to love this top; I've been wanting a Breton inspired top for ages and thought I'd give this one a shot. On the plus side it's very, very comfy. On the negative side, the fabric and cut are not flattering at all. There's something about the Ottoman texture that doesn't allow the fabric to drape over the body - it just sort of sticks out, and for someone who isn't built like the model in the photo, it's not necessarily a good look. I think they must have used a tall cut on her, because I was expecting the top to be longer, and I look like Mrs. 4x4 in it. Having said that, I'm not returning it because it's fine for when things are hectic at work and I want comfort and to be covered. I'm wearing it with one of my J. Jill waterfall cardis to disguise how wide it makes me look (in a size medium no less), but even after tugging at the tunic sleeves and trying to pull them down from inside my sweater sleeves, it bunches in a funny way at the front neckline. I would like to see a Breton top that is a bit more body conscious - maybe curving in at the waist would help, but I'd also like it to reach the thighs and cover my bottom. This is not something I'm going to wear to a meeting, but again, it's good for days when I'm doing heavy lifting away from my desk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dkristens Great look, great fabric....love this shirt
I honestly expected more of a t-shirt weight but was pleasantly surprised when I received it to find it more of a knitted weight. Comfortable, hangs well, fits open on the neckline without falling off the shoulders. Very happy with this one!

I was looking for a shirt that would be comfy for around the house, but would be nice enough for me to head out and run errands. This shirt is perfect! I bought the black striped as well as the tan striped. Sometimes J. Jill shirts are too thin for my taste, this is a nice solid shirt!

I really liked this top when I saw it in the store. I had to wait to wear it since it is so warm where I live. I have worn and washed it, and I am disappointed with the difficulty in washing this top. After reading reviews about cleaning, I decided to hand wash and lay flat to dry. I was careful not to stretch it when wet, because it would have gone crazy and been totally out of shape. It dried ok, shrunk slightly, not really a problem since it is so boxy.
All this said I do really like this top, but it is too high maintenance. Ease of washing and drying is a huge factor for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SterlingLJ A fitting stripe!
I actually ordered this in two colors - black and cashew, in a size up from what I normally wear. I have large upper arms and usually have trouble with the fit in shirts. I found that the material does stretch more than I thought when wearing it. Therefore, it gets a little overlarge. However, I do like the feel of the material and the comfortable fit. I am hoping it will shrink a bit when washed.

Very comfortable. Perfect shirt for the fall. You can also layer this and would look great. Enjoy
