Women's 3/4-sleeve Print Matte Jersey Drapeneck Top
Stylish professional top
I am always on the lookout for stylish tops that are safe for work - with a 34D chest, I need something that doesn't look frumpy but doesn't reveal too much, and this top fit the bill! The drape neck provides enough interest on top to be attractive without drawing undue attention to the area. Its longer length works well with my curves, too, gracefully falling to mid-hip. If you want a more fitted look, I would size down. I ordered the small and it's a little loose around the waist, but it has enough shape to make it attractive. I like the heavier weight of the fabric - no flimsy fabric that you can see through here. I ilke the print; I just wish there were other colors available than just black, or I might buy more!

Great style, a bit heavy
I love matte jersey, but what I missed was that this shirt is polyester/spandex, not cotton or silk jersey. As a result, if feels heavy and slippery.
Nonetheless I like the shirt (and the other two, same style, different colors). I especially love the drape, which is gentle and not too revealing. I also appreciate the 3/4 sleeves and wish Lands End put out more shirts like this, but in cotton/linen/silk combos (with a bit a spandex stretch). My husband is particularly enthusiastic about the royal blue. The black, as well as grey, shirts I bought go beautifully with Lands End slacks in black.

The top is just not the right size for my wife.
The top is the wrong size ( I ordered incorrectly ). However, the Lands' End Store had a different blouse in the right size and color, and my wife is thrilled.

Nice colors, but sized large
This is a poly knit top with a substantial weight and I usually find drape necks to be quite flattering. However, this item (size S: 6-8) was huge on me to the point the neck was balancing on my shoulders. It was quite long as well (just below my hips), though I am uncertain whether that was because it was so large or if the design was to run long. This will be returned.

I really like this top!
I really like this top! It is perfect length for my 6 ft, large busted frame. The fabric is easy care, drapes nicely, and resists wrinkles. It is perfect for travelling!

Material and color are beautiful, it feels nice to wear ...
The neckline did not fit me well, so I returned it. However, the material and color are beautiful, it feels nice to wear, very light weight, would be great for traveling and easy to wash. Drape neckines are always iffy to fit. I would recommend it to others however..

Here's the deal with this top - I love, love, love it. Love the fabric, the drape, the print - it's perfect for work, the neckline is so flattering. But it's way too big. I normally wear a 1X in LE tops and sweaters, sometimes a 0X in dresses.....and the size that fit me best with top was a LARGE! This was, unfortunately, not a case of surprise weight loss either - all of the other LE items I tried on were my normal size, but this fit best in a Women's (not Plus size) Large. Hits mid-hip. Slightly fitted, but in a flattering way. Glad I tried on a lot of sizes!

Nice but neck is too wide.
I liked the material, I liked the drape, but my straps showed as the neck was just a smidge too wide. I had to return.

Substantial material, excellent drape!
The description says "mid hip length." In the past, I've often been disappointed that what Land's End considers mid hip length is often high hip length, which isn't a very flattering look for me. But this top was just right! It was probably a bit longer than mid hip, but that ends up being a good thing. The fabric is more substantial than I was expecting, but given that we're heading into fall and I anticipate wearing this during winter (by "winter" I mean a mild California winter) and it should be just about perfect. It is slightly fitted, but don't let that worry you. Based on other reviews, I considered ordering a SP, but I'm glad I ended up ordering a MP, which is what I usually wear in Land's End styles. I wasn't disappointed. It skims the body, but doesn't cling at all and the drape neck is flattering and adds a little something without being too revealing, just long enough to skim over the tummy I wish was trimmer, but still shows off my waist. This top would definitely travel well and would never wrinkle or look anything but polished. Pair it with a nice pair of black pants or a black skirt, and you're good to go. I only wish they offered this style in more prints... I would love to own more!
