Woven front tank
I bought this top in red and purple when they went on extreme sale. I can always use a nice shell. I like the colors and the fit. I got a great deal.

Cute and versatile
nice comfortable layering piece, dresses up or down, the cotton back keeps it cool and the fit is very flattering

I bought this because it is a bright color (which I like), and it is a little on the dressy side....Fits good, feels good,,,...I am very busty (DDD) and this feels good....Thanks !

good as a layering piece, could be improved
There are definite pros and cons to this piece. The front is "woven" (think silky look & feel with NO give and fits slightly small) and the back is "knit" (think super stretchy T-shirt). I don't care for the gold button, like other reviewers.
The front material is not stretchy AT ALL, absolutely no give and most tops with this material don't fit my curves correctly and I have to return (luckily the "knit" back on this top makes up for a lot of normal fit issues I have with other tops that use this fabric). The thing that really bugs me is the placement of the darts. The darts are quite long and end up poking out at the end on me (looks like another set of nipples 2-3 inches outside where mine fall), and I'm an H cup so quite large chested. I'd imagine the darts would point directly to the nipple on someone smaller chested.
I love the "knit" material in the back! It's nice and cool in the Arizona summers, and stretches over my large hips/butt like a slightly snug T-shirt would (the picture online of the red one from the back shows this butt-hugging aspect). I totally agree with the reviewer that said it's not too long or too short, which is important for a super-curvy girl like me. Many tops with this much strech end up being slightly see-through, but this doesn't have that problem at all (even with the dark colors).
For my purposes, I wear this with a shrug or cardigan, so it covers the weird darts and the keyhole button in back. I might try wearing this without the shrug and a different bra and see if I can get the dart to look better. Since the fit FEELS nice due to the back material, and it LOOKS dressy in front, I actually bought 2 more of these so I have all the colors. I wear these to work and church as a layering piece for now, but I could totally wear it with jeans (if I can find the right bra to make the darts look ok).
