Women's Plus Size 3/4-sleeve Lightweight Supima Jersey V-neck Tunic
Swingy and fun, recommended but with reservations
This top is light and swingy, but the neckline is too rounded. The neckline is cut wide, so the V-neck is an awfully rounded V, which isn't as flattering. More material at the shoulders and a sharper V neckline would be more flattering on many of us, especially in the plus sizes. The material is soft and light, not too clingy, and I very much appreciate the 3/4 sleeves. It stays reasonably cool on very hot days. I'd like other colors - I have black, but the yellow would be awful on me, so that holds no appeal. Not a bad shirt and one that is easy to dress up with appropriate accessories or just leave casual.

Delicious fabric, cut not flattering
I only kept this because I tried it on and fell in love with the feel before looking in a mirror. The fact that I am more of an XL than a 1X, and petite may be most of the issue. It's just a lot of fabric for me, though it is not bulky. It is now one of my favorite pajama tops.

Waited to buy this fun- looking top till I could get it with Friends & Family. What a disappointment. I do NOT consider it "supima soft"- don't know why not, but it is not a smooth fabric like the other supima shirts I've had. Plus I had forgotten how tissue- thin the lightweight jersey items are. Fabric really not good, but I might have lived with it, if not for the length. The design is cute, but it is tunic length in front and longer in the back- being on the short side I looked ridiculous in it. Made it tent- like on me. If you are as tall as the model that might be different for you. I have a couple of LE short sleeve T's with a collar that have the variable hemline, but they seem to be tunic length in back and shorter in front. I know a lot of people are a fan of the tunic but I am not fond of the look, no doubt because of my height and shape. I can get away with them sometimes, but they usually make me look dumpy, and this was laughable. Not for me.

Bought several colors in this shirt. Fit is fine but fabric is cheap and they are poorly made. Okay to wear around the house but I would not order this again. This is the first time I have been disappointed by a Lands End product.

Not the result I was looking for.
Ran very large and the fabric is too light. Understanding that as a woman with curves I purchased this tunic to hide my bumps and bulges. The fabric is too light to camouflage. It clings and actually makes things worse.

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
