RUCHED DRAPE NECK TANK
Black Yes, White NO!!!
I ordered this top in black and white thinking it was like the ones they put out last year with a satiny finish. I've lost some weight so the mediums from last year don't fit anymore. I'm 5'4"/130 now and I ordered these in a small and the fit is just right but the fabric as the other reviewer stated is more like a cotton fabric without any sheen. The black color still looks good even though its not what I was expecting, I really like it. The problem with the white is the rushing at the bust has several tiny knots (don't know how else to explain) of beige string that are supposed to kind of pin tuck the fabric so it rushes. The only way to make it look right is to lay the fabric in such a way that the knots are exposed so it looks awful. I spent a good 15 minutes in front of the mirror shifting the rushing around to try to make it work. So basically it boils down to 5 stars for black if I could I would give zero stars for the white color. I would highly recommend the black but I don't think the quality of the execution of the white shirt is acceptable so I'll be returning it. Hopefully people will read this review and pass on the white! Would love to see this style in the satin finish again and in more colors!

Love, love, love
Ruched tops and I have a love hate relationship. In this case, it was pure love. The ruching worked really well and I loved how warm the fabric was. The material is thicker than what many people would expect, but I actually prefer it on this top. I think it gives me the impression that I can still wear a sleeveless top out (without a jacket) when it's 50 degree weather out. I did get this in black so it's really hard to not love a black top.

I almost ordered this top online but went to express to try it on. I'm glad I did! It's not the same material as the dresses express has not is it the same fit. The straps are long and I didn't like the material. If it was the silky material it would be cuter.
