METALLIC V-NECK CAMI
Snags easily, bad quality
This top is cute and a great idea. It looks great, especially worn under a shirt or a cardigan, with just enough sparkle to look special without being too glittery. I do not think it is see-though at all (I got the black one). Still, I will only wear it as a cami underneath something else as it is really clingy and really shows every single detail, the material is very thin and stretchy. It fits true to size (I am 135 lbs, 5''9 and got the small) and I like that the straps are adjustable.
What really bothers me about the top is that the material seems very cheap and snags easily. Actually, after wearing it for just one day (underneath a shirt!) I now already found about 10 snagged threads. They were probably already there before only now I actually looked for them. So I don't think this cami will look good for long. I got it on sale so I am not overly sad but I would not buy for the full price!

Nice way to glam up an outfit, but see-through
Love these camis and the colors are great! Nice way to add some sparkle to an outfit, but a word of warning: these are see-through. The material is very thin (i.e. cheap) and is transparent, even in dim lighting. This goes for the dark colors too. Even a nude bra will show, so unfortunately these will probably best be saved for peeking out from underneath a sweater.
The metallic thread running through all the colors I've gotten is silver (and probably prone to snagging) although the black looks like it's got some silver/gold alternation going on. The sparkle in these isn't over-the-top, so they look just as great with jeans and a sweater as they do with a skirt.
The fit is true to Express sizing, and good news busty ladies, even the XS isn't too tight across the chest. Despite the flimsiness of the material, I still recommend these, just not at full price. And perhaps with something on top.
