Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool, comfortable and figure flattering! I'm very happy with this top. I also have the matching cardigan. Both tops feel wonderful and they're great no matter how warm the weather. The rayon/spandex is terrific. I'm surprised at some of the comments about clinging as I find the shape with all the gathering front and back to work beautifully to cover my imperfections. I do wear it without the belt and with slim pants. For me, the belted look never works. I love the shape of the body and the arms, too. I know Motto has been discontinued but if this top is in your size and you get hot, give this a try. I wear either an XS or S in Motto. The small is perfect so maybe a size up gives it the right drape and eliminates the cling. I love it 03-27-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by eh i love the color and the feel of this top but it is way too long for me. i ordered it in the medium and its ridiculously long.. the fabric also clings to the skin and shows everything including bra straps.. if it was not so long i would probably still keep it but i think im going to have to return it.. 06-09-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful! This top is so flattering, the material is so soft & beautiful, not too heavy. Love the V-Neck, the waist tie, & the sleeves give you beautiful coverage. Very pretty & comfortable. 06-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Top I have this top in one color & ordered another color, I think the fabric is great for summer. I washed in cold water before I wore it, hung over shower rod to dry, had hardly any wrinkles, barely needed any ironing. 05-10-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice top I ordered this top in the blue/Large. The color is a pretty shade of blue, not too bright. The fit is good as well as the length. It goes well with the maxi skirts. A bit thin, but nice for Florida's summer. 04-25-12
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for the Imperfect Woman This shirt looks nice on models and the hanger. It's not for anyone with any type of body fat. This shirt accentuates all the bad areas. I got the black and blue. Beautiful colors but unfortunately going back. 04-19-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by not good just like others have said, it clings, not sized well, poor fabric. disappointed. going back. my experience with Motto has always been good, not this time. 04-18-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by For the small waisted I bought this in the blue and the pink. Love the colors, and the idea of the style is gorgeous, BUT not for short women without a tiny waist. Even without the belt (which is so pretty braided) the material clings to you, not flattering. The detail around the neck and the V neck is what made me give it a try, even though I read the reviews. I agree it is too long. I bought one in S and one in M. The small fits somewhat better, and I could blouson it with the belt to hide my thicker waist. But the M is just too long. I haven't washed it yet. Hope it doesn't fall apart. I am 5'1, 150 lbs if that helps. The material is soft. I sent the blue one back and I will keep the other. 07-11-11
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unflattering! This fabric is thin & clings to any little bump or roll you may have (including your bra straps). I can't imagine anything more unflattering. Too bad because it was nice & long & cool for the summer (I'm long in the torso & have difficulty finding tops that are long enough for me). I wanted to like this but it went back immediately. If you want to look 20 pounds heavier, this is the top for you! 07-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous, coming back for more! I'm surprised at the negative reviews, I love this top! I purchased a Medium in Deep Blue, I'm 5'6'' with a full bust, narrow waist, and full hips and thighs and I usually wear a size 12 pant (just to help you with sizing). On a curvy gal this is fantastic! The material as so soft and lightweight! Perfect for summer! I've gotten many compliments while wearing this top and it's a great buy at $28 with free shipping! I have two other Motto tops that I love in a similar fabric and length and this is absolutely true to motto sizing. The color is lovely and has not faded a bit after 5+ washings. I machine wash and line dry because it has a delicate weight. I cannot understand why everyone is complaining about wrinkles???? It's slightly wrinkly out of the bag, and after washing however mine smoothes out on it's own after a few minutes of wearing. I think it's a dynamite top and I'm coming back for another color!! 06-20-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by I have reservations..... I agree it is TERRIBLY wrinkly and the person that looked at the colors and named them must be color challenged because I ordered the BLUE skirt and the LAPIS BLUE shirt and since they didn't match...ooopppss, so sorry, they both went back. Their Lapis Blue shirt is definitely JADE green. And the names of the skirts are so close together that they named two of them multi (of course I punched in the wrong one on the phone and get to send it back). The length of the shirt is nice but I am not so sure I care much for the belt - I will probably trade it out for something else I have. It is pretty long. I did order a size larger than normal. 06-16-11
Rated 3 out of 5 lapis green "UGLY" first positive: light and good x summer. neg.= long, wrinkles, and the worst is the color i have to return it because it looks like i am wearing my husband scrubs. sorry!!!! 06-15-11
