Women's Flutter Sleeve Pattern Bow Front Blouse
Feel pretty in this blouse
Although I'm not generally a fan of ties and extraneous bits tacked onto blouses, this one can be done as a half-knot and gotten out of the way. This piece is comfortable to wear, flattering colors on. See how the sleeve on the right kind of triangles out from her arm? Even after ironing, it does that which is not super-attractive and my reason for 4 boats rather than file. On the useful side, it's long enough to tuck in and blouse out.

Nice fabric and cut.
I returned it because of the color which is ok but not what I expected. It is a nice fabric and style and if it were a darker more purple blue instead of eggplant I would have kept it.

I absolutely loved this top at the first sight! As soon as I put it on, I loved it even more! It drapes very well, but shows the best features of my body. It also matches my skin tone (I'm very light olive-skinned--I even have freckles on my shoulders!), which is a rarity. I'd purchase dozens of this shirt if it's available in a variety of colors.

Good fit and slimming look
This shirt is of very light weight material - which is what I was looking for, since I live in Hawaii. The material is NOT see-through, so that is not a problem. It fit well, and I found that on my figure it created a slimming look. I purchased this shirt style in a paisley design last spring (sleeves were a little different) and also in the plum print and solid blue color. I'm hoping that they bring this out (without the double sleeves) in the spring in lighter colors and patterns.

Love this blouse
Very pretty, easy to ware, easy to wash and flattering – what more could you want.
I wish there were more color and print choices, I would buy more.

I liked this blouse because it doesn't have a shirt collar. I misread that it doesn't button up, so I was surprised when I got it to see it is a pullover blouse. I figured out I can wear a skinny belt with it and it looks great--a new look for me! With some other slacks I could tuck it in, but not with the pair I bought it for.
I got a size 8--fits perfectly in the shoulders. I've found I can wear size small easily in Lands End, even with most long sleeve items. It is quite blousy /billowy through the lower portion, so needs to be tucked in or belted. I did stitch the front V-neck just a bit so it's not so revealing; I'm rather small-busted. The ties at the collar / neck cover up a little bit more.

I love the print of this blouse as well as the tie and the flutter sleeves. The styling concept is good, but the blouse runs large through the mid-section and reminds me of a maternity top. Because I wasn't confident that the next size down would fit in the shoulders or eliminate the maternity look, I simply returned the blouse.

This shirt is lovely for work - it can really dress up a pair of khakis. The fabric is wonderful - too often blouses are thin and call for a tank (aka camisole) but this one is perfect on its own. I felt pretty all day in this blouse! I wear petite XL and ordered the 16 - it is the ideal length for me (I'm five apples high.) Would love to see this shirt in solid colours.

I bought the plum flower print, and it's a great color, a nice rich plum, not too bright. I am short (5'3") and plus size (size 3x). This fit well, and wasn't too long, hit just in the right place. Many plus size shirts are too long on me, but this was just right. I don't wear it tucked in, and it looks great with slacks for work. I do the ties in a knot, and it lays nicely, not like an 80s bow. Would buy more colors if they were offered, especially solids or more subtle prints.

boxy, not flattering for curvy women
The good: This is a really pretty blouse with a lovely pattern. It is well made, no stray threads or anything like that. The flutter sleeves are perfect. It looks lovely on the model. I suspect it would look great on other similarly slender women.
The bad: It does not, however, look lovely on me and my D-cups. I am 5'8", 160lbs and usually wear size 10-12. I ordered a 12 and it just does nothing for me. Untucked, it hangs like a badly designed maternity shirt. Tucked in, it poofs in all the wrong places. Also, there is a bow at the front, which you can see if you zoom right in (it is tied in a knot, not a bow on the model picture) but which I did not notice before buying.
Bottom line: It's going back.
