Women's Plus Size 3/4-sleeve Lightweight Supima Jersey V-neck Tunic
I love this top, but I wish the fabric wasn't quite so thin. The shape is cute, and it's really comfortable.

Love this but caution- bra strap alert
I live in V-neck tops. I would not call this a V-neck. When I first put it on I hated it. The neckline is wide and at least one bra strap showed. So why did I give this such a high rating? By chance, I had ordered a few layering tank tops that have a chiffon panel that is meant to peek out of the bottom, from under the tunic. When I tried it on with one of the LB tank tops, it was just perfect. The tank top solved the bra strap problem. The Lands End top was a good length, but just short enough to layer over the tank so the chiffon showed at the bottom. And I love this very light weight Supima cotton fabric. It is so soft and light and comfortable. Even with the 3/4 length sleeves, which I love, it will be cool enough to wear during the summer. It is perfect for summer layering. The fabric not only feels soft and looks feminine, it also seems like a high quality summer fabric with a nice drape to it. Other reviewers have mentioned it is sheer and their bra shows which is probably true in the lightest colors. I did just order the white, but I know I have an off-white tank to wear under it. Any cami would work. The fabric does not cling and the top is generously cut--I usually wear a 2x, sometimes a 3x, but in this top the 2x is just fine. I will be keeping the white, black and midnight blue for sure. Deciding on the orange and bright pink maybe.

Perfect lightweight, swingy top!
I was worried about comments on the weight and clingy-ness of the fabric in the reviews below, but for me, neither has been a problem. I am an 18-20 at Lands End and bought this in a 2X in yellow and bright pink. Both colors are true to what you see in the pictures. For me, the fit is perfect - loose but shaped enough not to look frumpy. The 3/4 sleeve length is great. The yellow is a little sheer (enough to see that I am wearing a bra), but that isn't a problem for me. The fabric did not cling at all, and it stretched slightly as I wore it. The one negative is that the pink was slightly smaller than the yellow, especially in the arms, but both fit all right. I may buy this in other colors, as it is easy to dress up with a scarf and/or jewelry.

Just Ordered More
I typically don't like tops that have an asymmetrical hem, but I liked everything else about the description of this tunic, so I bought one. I like this top so much I've just ordered more, in other colors. Wish the green wasn't sold out in my size.
I agree with the reviewers who say that the fabric is thin, but for me that's a plus. Living in the South, it makes it a year 'round item for me. I have not had the wrinkle issues that some others have complained of.

neck is too wide and the fabric is so lightweight it's see through
I really wanted to love this top. The style is cute and flattering. I ordered the Lemon shine. I really like the color. When I looked in the mirror I was disappointed to see the lace from my bra shining through. The neckline is cut too wide exposing the bra straps.
I've had a 10 + year love affair with lands ends, but, its over. The fabric on the last shirt was very thin too. The quality has really diminished. Plus, what's up with all the horizontal stripes? not flattering on us curvy girls

Exceeded my expectations!
Fits beautifully. I'm told the neckline and the flared bottom are flattering, and I feel beautiful when wearing it!

Thin and See-through
While I like the cut, I should have listened to the other reviewers that described this shirt as being too thin. You can see through the shirt easily, so a second shirt or tank underneath is needed for the lighter colors. While most of Land's End cotton t-shirts come out of the dryer nicely, without requiring ironing, this shirt is not one of them; it comes out of the dryer looking like wrinkled tissue paper. I do not recommend.

Great shape but the fabric is too thin
I love the shape of this top. It's really flattering and the sleeves are perfect. The neck is only a tiny bit wide but I have very narrow shoulders so I expect that. My only problem with the shirt is the fabric. It is extremely soft just like they said, but it is much too thin. It feels flimsy. I understand it's meant to be lightweight, but it just doesn't have enough body. I've bought a lot of land's end in the past and have always loved it so when I decided to invest in a good tshirt I came here. The price is high for a tshirt but I was sure the quality would make it worthwhile. It doesn't. The shape is perfect for me and I would love to be able to buy a few more in different colors, but I can't see spending that much on something I feel like will not last.

It is everything it says it is . . .
This top is everything it says it is . . . lightweight, soft, and a ?swingy? shape, which I found to mean that it is comfortable and flattering. My only complaint (which may only pertain to me) is the color selection. Bright, pastel colors just do not look good on me. So I ordered the dark blue top first. Loved it so much, I'm ordering another one in black.

I am between a 1x & 2x so I purchased 2x, washed & dried on low & it fits perfectly
I love the fabric. I love now in the Winter with a sweater & I think it will be perfect in the summer on our humid days. I am usually hot so I need light weight fabric that breathes. Thank you for making such great fitting clothes, for a good price & with long wear.
