Women's Starfish Lightweight Crew Tunic
great easy wear tunic
I already had one of these that I wear for work with the black starfish straight leg pants...very smart. I bought 2 more tunics. Wash great and drip dry. Land's End I love you!

Very comfortable and lightweight. Neck is a bit wide, almost boat neck style. Love the longer length. Would love to see it in some bright colors (turquoise, pink, etc).

It was late in the season when I ordered the starfish tunic, and the only color available in my size was the Hot Papaya. Wasn't my first choice, but since the purpose was for around the house wear, I ordered it. When it arrived, upon opening the bag I noticed how remarkably soft it was. Also, happily, the color was a bit more red and less orange than the sample online appeared. The fit is exactly what I'd hoped it be. It skims my bust & hips, and the length is perfect at just below my butt. I also love the 3/4 sleeves, & feel comfortable wearing this tunic anywhere casual clothing is appropriate. I hope that it's soon available in more colors in my size, as I'd definitely order more!

Not as expected
I ordered 2 of these tops. They were larger than expected & didn't shrink in the dryer. The fit wasn't terribly flattering but they worked well for me when I had to go to physical therapy. They are a very casual top - not something you would wear to dinner, etc. I was a little disappointed in them.

Roomy tunic, soft and warm.
I ordered a small and a medium based of the reviews. I am 5'7" 145 lbs, and usually wear a medium in most tops. The small was too small in the chest, shoulders and upper arms and the length was too short to cover my bum. The medium fits decent, the length is perfect, covers my bum, but it is a tad roomy in the hips. It has a A line shape so the hip area has probably about 6 inches more that I need around the bottom hem. I am going to keep the medium since I was looking for something comfy to lounge around in and wear to yoga and with leggings. The fabric is very soft and warm. I prefer the eggplant color (the small) but they only had papaya left in medium. I will offer the small to my friend who is shorter than me and see if she would like to keep it, if not it's going back. Also, the sleeves are 3/4 length, maybe a con for some. Full length sleeves would be preferred, but since when I'm at home I am usually cooking or washing up, etc., I end up pushing the sleeves up anyway.

this tunic is waaaayy more casual than it looks onscreen, and the colours, more faded. i ordered these in purple, light teal and teal, and returned 2 of the 3 because the light teal was the only one that i thought acceptable given the cut, colour and texture of the tunic. they might be worth keeping at sale price, but definitely not at full price. and i'd been soo in love what i saw onscreen. bummer.

comfortable but not terribly elegant
This top is good for weekend very casual, but it does look more like a sweatshirt than a sweater, so personally I wouldn't wear it to dinner or anything where I wanted to look a little higher level of casual. Also, I would warn that the sizing could be a problem if like me you're a bit bigger on top than bottom. I'm small but a little chesty, and it works but I think the bust would be tighter than I wanted if I wore something underneath it. On the other hand, if I went up a size I think the bottom half would go from being fashionably loose to voluminous, so if you tend toward proportionately bigger on top this item might be a problem for you. I entered it as running average, since really only the bust line runs small.

Very Nice, BUT...
I bought one of these in PL to try it out. It fit great out of the box & I was very pleased with the weigh of the material, the cut (not too tight), the length and the color. That is....until I washed it and dried it! Everything was the same, except for the length. It is no longer a "tunic" length - it is a hip length shirt. Don't get me wrong - I still like the top and ordered a second one. It's just not a tunic length after washing/drying. Kinda disappointed.

Love the fit and feel of the terry--great weight fabric.
Shirt fits well and I love the feel and weight of the terry.

Comfy and stylish - perfect casual wear
I got this in the lovely pale sea foam/sage color in large petite. It fits loose, but it hangs nicely and feels great. The french terry is not too thick but thicker than a heavy tee-shirt fabric. The neckline is fine for warmer weather and even ok with a scarf for cooler days. I'm not keen on layering so don't plan to wear a shirt or tank under this, but there's room to do so. I also ordered the beige-y color but mistakenly ordered the regular large size. That is big enough to be a dress on me (5'3") and I've put it in the dryer to shrink a bit. But the cloth is good quality and it isn't shrinking so I may try a loose belt to shorten it a bit. I have legging-style jeans to go with these, and they also look fine with looser yoga pants. I can wear these tops for shopping, to lunch with friends, etc.
