Lane Collection print V-neck top
I wanted to love it...
The concept is cute, but there are some issues. First, I found it ran really short in the body. My biggest issue after that was this is NOT coral... not even close. Safety orange is more like it and I don't look good in safety orange.
The fabric felt great and I think it would wear well, but the color description and shortness just made it a return for me.

I wear mine backwards because I don't like the boat neck & it is super cute!

Love the colors and print of this top. It looks great on the model, but not so much on me. At least, if I wear it the proper way. This may sound odd, but I turned it around so the part that's supposed to be in the back is in the front. That way, there is a v-neck, slightly low cut, in the front. Voila, it looked a lot better! (On me, anyway). When I tried on this top the way it is supposed to be (not backwards), it really emphasized my stomach, I guess because it cuts in toward the bottom. Like one of the other reviewers, I think this top would have been more flattering if it had some "shape", meaning something like a waist, to it. Somehow if I wear it backward, my belly isn't as accentuated, and to me, it looks better with the lower cut neckline. I may just cut the labels out and end up wearing it that way!

The Color is Extreme
The pic shows the top in a light coral; it is NOT. Imagine more of a tangerine and not coral. The top also is very blouson style; big and shapeless. The back tie is incredibly long; not a big deal as you can cut it down to make that work. The shape was my big issue as it does no favors for those with hourglass shapes as it doesn't taper in to accentuate the waist. I wanted to like this top but it just wouldn't work. One plus: the sleeve idea covers upper arm insecurities while appearing as a "sleevelss" top. The fabric rests in a very complimentary way.
