Women's Starfish Lightweight Crew Tunic
Weird fit - not for the pear shaped
I love the fabric and the styling of this top from the neck down to about the waist... and then it all falls apart. I found the top of this shirt to be about true to size, but the bottom was too tight around my hips. I also found the length to be quite a bit longer than I expected. I am usually an 8/10 for tops and a 10 for bottoms... so I was surprised that the medium in this shirt was too tight around my hips (especially because I often find that LE clothes run large on me). I imagine this would look very cute over leggings on someone with slim or straight hips - but it is not very flattering on a curvy, pear-shaped body. I will say that I liked the fabric enough that I actually kept this and cut about three inches of the bottom - now it is more like a traditional sweatshirt, and I will enjoy it as such (only because of the the sale price!).

The color and fit were just right.
Works well on cool evenings.

My second tunic same style!
I love the dressy, soft, sweatshirt style material. The length was a bit too long for my 5'1 height so I was able to hem it 2". I have this tunic in purple & red and like wearing it for a dressier casual look.

Wow! This is just what I've been looking for.
I love this tunic. I like that the back is longer than front. I don't have to worry about leaning over. The material is so soft. I bought one the first time. After wearing it I ordered two more.

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.
