    Promising review: "I really like this top. It fits well. It isn't sheer but is cool wearing fabric. It does hug your frame so if you want a loose top, this isn't for you.

    Promising review: "To be honest I didn't have very high hopes for a shirt this inexpensive. But at that price point I also figured that I didn't have much to lose. I'm busty and have tattoos on my shoulders so finding cute comfortable clothing that's appropriate for work and doesn't cost a fortune can be a challenge. This shirt looks exactly like an Elloquii one I've been eyeing for a awhile but at a fraction of the price. I'll probably get the other colors as well!" —Arden Bee
