Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ara Very nice, but not true to the image
I just received this in the mail (in indigo) and I'm a bit torn over it. It's quite flattering in the torso, but it fits a little oddly in the shoulders (the shoulder seam is closer to my neck than to my actual shoulder). However, this can be fixed with a little tugging here and there. Also, the arm detailing, as people have mentioned, is quite different than in the photos. The cording around the lace is not a solid black, but is woven with baby pink, blue, and green as well. I wasn't sure I would keep this top at first, but it's very warm and flattering, and I do like the lace detail. I might see if I can fix the cording with some black fabric marker, though. For reference, I'm 5'5", 135 lbs, about 35-30-39 and I got a medium.

i got the cream colour its true to size and the material is very durable. the cord threading on the sleeves everyone has been complaining about are an easy fix..they are sewed on seperate from the rest of the thermal so i just cut them off! super easy..super gorgeous now. love it!

I got it in the green and even though it's form fitting it is very flattering! The perfect thermal with a bit of an edge.

I just love this top, initially, just looking at the photos online I wanted to buy the pink or the mocha colors, but then I went to my local FP store and tried them on, and I have to say that the colors are a little bit different , and both the mocha and the pink washed me out (I am blond). The most beautiful colors in person are the green (which online seems to be very faded, but actually it`s not)and indigo(which is an awesome faded dark purple), it also runs a little bit large, mostly on the shoulders, so I would say that if you are between sizes to size down..... Overall it is such a comfortable, perfect and unique piece, a must have (and the multi-colored cord is a plus !!!).
Rated 5 out of 5Â by lappin different than photo but still nice
the previous reviewer was right- there are differences in the cuff from the photo, although personally i didnt mind them. instead of a "floral lining" its actually multicolored cord with a zigzag stitch over it. if you didnt look close you wouldnt even notice, although there is some color difference. also as the previous reviewer said, the fabric beyond the cord is not the same color as in the photo. also, the stitching on top of this fabric is not the same as in the photo. it makes me nervous about future fp purchases because i may not get what i think i'm ordering, but luckily i did not find it to be a make-it-or-break-it difference on this awesome thermal.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cherieboo Just my style!
I purchased the Pink. I usually wear the darker colours, but I thought this time, I'd switch up. I am glad I did! I will get alot of wear out of this thermal. FP does the GREATEST thermal's! They are so soft and giving. Purchase one: you will absolutely love it. I love every thermal; I have purchased from FP! I like to layer these piece's~love layering> Kudos to Free People; they did it once again-A great one. I just may purchase the grey!

Love this. So much. Ordered it in pink and it is really pretty. Going to have to order a few more colors for sure! Tried it on with the todays denim jacket (with the jacket sleeves rolled up), grey skinny jeans and boots. Looked awesome! Cannot wait for fall and winter to arrive! Runs TTS.

Â by hannahmoureuse mixed feelings :(
First of all, I love Free People thermals, and have about 8 or 9 thermals from the past few years in my wardrobe.
As soon as this thermal came out, I could not wait to get the green one, it just looked incredible online. I studied all the colors and the details of the cuffs and thought they were all stunning, but still went for the green.
When I FINALLY received it (I originally ordered on August 21, my order got lost in the mail, got shipped again and I ended up getting it on October 12 !), I was quite disappointed. The main issue for me is the color... I will upload a picture to show the color I got, so you can check for yourself how different it looks from the online pictures.
I could get on board with the stitching (even though it is not my style) but the color is NOT what I was looking for AT ALL. I'm not saying it's not beautiful, it is okay (sort of washed out and darker shade) but had I seen the actual green color, I personally would have chosen another color. I still would have bought it though.
As an online shopper, I take a lot of time to carefully select the items I want and I study the photographs carefully before ordering... I think Free People should try to picture the clothes more accurately (especially the colors) as this leaves me totally confused and hesitant to buy again.
I also feel this thermal is thinner than the ones from two years ago and from last year, but itâs the stitching Iâm worried about as there is already a hole in one of the sleevesâ¦
Some people will probably like this shade of green better than the one pictured online, so itâs just a shame thereâs no way of knowing what youâre getting.
All in all, Iâm confused about the advertising of the product and wish I would have had the possibility to choose the color I truly wanted based on actual accurate photographsâ¦ But I still like it and still love free people â I hope itâs just the one bad experienceâ¦
In regards to sizing, Iâm 5â10, 135 lbs, between S and M. I got a small this time around because I wanted it tighter, but could have gone either way.
