Women's Plus Size Tie Front Seersucker Shell
Armholes too big
The armholes were way too big. I am top-heavy and armholes are frequently too large. They were also cut unevenly. It's a cute top and comfy, too, so I decided to wear it as a sleep top.

great top for the heat
a nice and simple lightweight top for those hot days. But it runs big. I usually take an 18 or 20, and ended up returning items until I got a 16 which fit well. I got both pink and blue.

Excellent summer top
This is a wonderful top for hot weather. I purchased both the blue plaid and the blue seersucker and love the colors. I'm 5'4", about 135 pounds and short-waisted. I bought a 10 petite based on other comments and am very happy with the fit -- they are loose-fitting, but there's no stretch in the fabric, so that's good. The top looks best with slim pants or shorts, or can be tucked in for a more flattering silhouette. The only negative is that I have to iron!

light weight perfect for hot summer days
This top is perfect for very hot days. I liked they way it fit so much that I ordered two more in different colors. Very hapy with my purchase!

Very cute summer top
I am 5' 3" and weigh about 145 pounds so when I read the reviews I ordered a size up(14) since I dislike when clothing is tight around the midsection . I had to send it back because it was too big all around. The 12 fits much better,it is certainly not tight at all in fact it is still very roomy but I think a 10 would be too small on me. The shell is lightweight and very pretty, a bit more dressy than a regular tank top. Bought it to go with the Lands End pink dalia shorts. I am wary of mixing patterns but the stripes in the top are very suble and I think it makes a nice outfit. . It washed and dried very nicely with no discernable shrinkage. I also have the yellow madras plaid in the same style . Love them both..

Great for Iowa's HOT and HUMID summer weather.
I would have given this item a 4 due to the arm holes being too large, but it is so darn hard to find a light weight cotton product for these extreme hot temps that I gave it a 5. I am hoping to find shorts, pants and a basic unlined dress out of this same fabric……….bring on more of it Land's End !!! I like this fabric way better than all of the high priced linen I bought from a well know mall store/catalog last summer.
BTW: I am a larger person and it is very hard to find basic cool clothing for summer.

I will wear this on hot summer days
A perfect fabric for hot summer days because it is cool and light, but not too sheer.
I also like the vertical striping.
I recommend this top with the following caution:
Do take a look at the actual product dimensions when choosing your size.
I have a mature figure. It seems most of the time, if I find a top that fits across the chest and hips, the shoulders are too wide, or the armholes are cut too large.
This top is no exception.
To get the sweep I need to fit my hips, instead of ordering my usual 16P. I had to switch to a 14W. The fit is roomy, but that's OK because I expect to wear on over 90 degree and humid DC summer days.
With this top, the shoulder width is good, but the armholes are cut a bit too large. (If only LE offered this in a plus petite size)
But, I like the rest of the fit and the fabric so much, I may keep the top to wear at home, in the garden or as a cover over my swimsuit.
Normally I don't like to alter clothes I buy, but since there is ample length to this top and it is of simple construction, I might try taking a tuck in the top shoulder seam to reduce the armholes.
My product rating reflexes the sizing issues.

Perfect summer top.
This top is pretty and just says summer. It is slimming because of the stripes and it drapes well. I ordered my true size and it fit well even in the tummy area. The arm holes were not too wide and will cover a bra. This will be my go to top for hot summer days!

Uncomplicated, flattering top
Though I need to exchange for a smaller size (took earlier comment to heart, but it seems sized properly around the midsection), I'm pretty sure I'll really love this shirt. The fabric, though crinkly, is silky and drapes like it is of a heavier weight. It's nicely made, well-proportioned, armholes are well-placed and sized. I'm 5'3", rather apple-shaped plus size, and very happy with this shirt.
