Women's 3/4-sleeve Starfish Terry V-neck Tunic
Pockets Are Bulky
This is a great top. My only complaint is the pockets at the sides are large and make your hips looks bulky. I took them out. Super soft and great fit.

Perfect for lounging
I order my usual size pm and fits great. Yes pockets are a little tricky after you wash the shirt since they stick out a little but I ordered 4 of these to lounge in. However, I could wear this with a cocoon cardigan and look really nice since the cardigan hides the hip pockets. Incredibly soft but a little flimsy definitely not worth the $ if it wasn't on sale.

I discovered the LE French terry tunics last season and bought several.. Loved the flattering slim tunic length and 3/4 sleeves but necklines weren't great on either styles I found then (wide scoop or wide boat neck). Was delighted to see this lovely v neck this season, but the fabric is so different - not truly a French terry (not much more than t shirt fabric). It is indeed very soft and comfy to wear but I'm a little worried it will pill or not stand up to repeated washings very well. And I have to agree with everyone about the pockets not being a very wise move! Great idea in theory, and pockets in the same place work fabulously on my various summer cover-up jersey dresses, but sadly they don't work on this top. Maybe if they had been sewn right into the shirt so they don't flop about it might have worked better. I think given the thinner fabric, these tunics are way overpriced at full price, but ok once starting to get reduced. Hope LE does keep producing the tunics in French terry, I would just prefer the more substantial version of fabric as in the past runs.

Great fabric, pockets are wrong. Recommend if you can alter.
I love the soft fabric of this tunic and have it in two colors. I agree the pockets are handy, but poorly placed at the hip. I easily altered the tunic to take out the pockets and it is much more wearable. The fabric is great, so Land's End, please redesign the tunic but keep the fabric!

Way too big
I'm 5'3 and 175lbs. I ordered the medium in the pink color. The material is soft and the color is nice but it fits more like a pajama top. The pockets make it flare out a bit so it makes your hips look wider than you really are. Its definately comfortable but I can only wear this on the weekends running errands. It will look too sloppy for work even in a casual setting.

The shirt is so soft and comfy
I just bought this shirt yesterday in the store and wore it tonight w leggings. I felt put together but very comfortable . I'm 5'3 about 135 lbs and chesty. Bought the XS and it fit great. I've never written a review before but when I went online tonight to see what other colors were available I saw the negative reviews and decided to write. Pockets are nice, fabric is soft, length is good. I love this top!

I felt the need to alter this shirt!
Eeek! I'm a 5'0", plus size woman. The pockets on this shirt are in the exact WRONG place and are quite bulky. The shirt fits fine otherwise and I actually like the material. I like the overall shirt so much that I decided not to return the item. I opted to alter the shirt instead. Sorry, Lands' End, but it just doesn't fit as designed.

Top not as pictured
The top in picture is lovely .. Very very disappointed am returning all . It is NOT soft fells itchy rough fabric.. it is NOT shaped for any figure large or small .IT is hard to explain it looks awful on every thing about it is a problem. Changing sizes does not help it is a a huge fashion disaster . I would give this. A minus 10.

Alpaca heather should just be called cement - really boring. Fits quite large. Would really have preferred 100% cotton. Feels as though it will pill

Like Wearing a Tent
I really wanted to like this top since it looks flattering on the model, however, when i tried it on, it resembled a tent. I really liked the fabric, which is soft and comfortable and loved the color (Lemon), unfortunately the cut of the top was much too boxy, especially for a petite. The pocket placement, while it was on the seam, was flared out at the bottom, making it look like a tent. It looks much slimmer cut on the model, like they used a clip in the back to gather the extra fabric. I really like the pockets, just not the cut. Reshape this item and it could be a big seller!
