Women's Fitted Extended Long Sleeve Tee from Essentialist

Available in: black or white
Size(s):  XS - XL
Price:  $29.95


Unforgiving & Unflattering 

This tunic-style, crew neck is a basic, plain black top. It's long sleeves, are extra long - past my nails, with a slit cuff. This makes them look like butterfly wings. I like the effect. It's modern and adds a bit of much needed flair to this top. It's 96% Rayon, 4% Spandex - snuggling the body from chest to hips. It is unforgiving. The slightest imperfection in this area is on display. From the product pictures it appeared to have free flow -allowing it to hang away from the body...this is NOT the case. Also this snug fit style as a crew neck flattens out the attributes ladies prefer not be flattened. The stitching wasn't perfect. Several loose stitches and one hanging thread in the bottom slit (at hip/leg).
It is machine washable. (Delicate cycle using cold water and to avoid shrinking- hang to dry)

This top might work for ladies with no midline imperfections. I'm not sure how to even use sizing to avoid this, because the sleeves are extra long already, sizing up to get a bit of flow on the body, increases sleeve length as well. I think the sleeves will be so long, that then becomes the issue. I was so very disappointed with this top. I love tunic length and the slit butterfly wing cuffs too. But it just didn't work for me at all.
I'm sorry I cannot recommend this item to anyone.
