I was a little concerned after reading the review stating this top snags easily but I went ahead and purchased it regardless [from the FP section of a local department store] because I loved the style so much. I got the Oatmeal Heather because I only had a choice of 2 colours, otherwise it would have been black; just can't help myself. It's nice, a kind of light grey. I'm 5'6" and 135 and the small fits quite well except for the super tight upper arms. What up with that? We're not stick people. Initially I loved everything about this top from the length to the way it drapes and the feel of the fabric but after wearing it for as long as it took to walk my dog around the block and finding a cluster of snags and/or pulls where my [smooth, flat] purse strap had been, the honeymoon is over. I don't mind clothing that's supposed to look destroyed but I'm too much of an O.C.D. candidate to wear fabric that appears to be poor quality or makes me look like I just don't care what I look like. I was able to fix the pulls with a darning needle [pushing them through] but I'm extremely disappointed. I usually wear a lot of bracelets and I'd hate to see it after that. Yeah, I know, I was warned. Next time I'll listen [yeah, right]. Oh and last but certainly not least, is the washing instructions. You have to wash it by hand, which is fine but you can't wring or twist it and you must reshape and lay it flat to dry âand NO dry cleaning. I don't have a surface large enough to lay this piece out flat nor do I have the patience or the beach towels needed to squeeze out the water and lay it out. While I'm a huge fan of FP, I wouldn't recommend this particular top to anyone. The style is great but it only gets one star for being so ridiculously impractical; after wearing it once it's almost ready for the trash.

I bought this item at the Woodmere location last week and it is amazing! Baggy, comfortable and cozy! This does run large as it has an oversized silhouette. Perfect for chilly summer nights and fall!

I bought this from my FP Dept store section in the ice blue and cream with black stripes. I was so excited to buy these because its so hard to find V neck, cute thermals especially one like this where it flows beautifully. I'm usually a Large in any other brand,(5'10 36D) and had to size down so it did not look like a bag on me... While in the body a medium fit great, the top of the arms are super tight. I did not really mind considering I loved the fit so much.
Now note this... it is NOT a thermal in my eyes. This is made more of the feel of a thin delicate sweater knit.
I bring it home and wear it out for 30 minutes and have thread snagged & there are random pieces of the bottom of the thermal all over my black leggings. Almost like the material went unfinished at the bottom. So now Im frustrated because I know my dept would take it back, but I'm so in love with the style is it worth wearing maybe 3 times at $70? ($80 for the striped one which is ridiculous!) I still have not decided... I am thinking of keeping one and returning the other so I am not out so much $$$.
Gorgeous idea FP, just needed better quality. Maybe if it was made closer to the actual texture of a durable thermal.

Washed it once, it fell apart. Now I have a very expensive ball of frayed yarn.

This is a beautiful top, it was love at first sight for me and I still love it but please note that it snags very easily. I have worn mine three times now and I have a whole lot of little snags which are turning into holes. Sure I have a dog and my bracelet catches on it but as a top I want to wear all the time, I am thinking its just not going to last long as I can't just sit around in it without doing anything. Wish it was made out of more durable fabric. Cheers!

Super soft and cozy. I need it in every color! It's roomy but not boxy. The sleeves are long which I love. You won't want to take it off. You need at least one. I went with black, and it's a good dark black. Next I will purchase wine and taupe.

The fabric is stupid soft and warm. Amazing drape. I'm 34-27-37 and the xs is perfectly flattering. So sexy worn off one shoulder and with cut offs.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by eejohnson Wanted to love this but...
Upon receiving this shirt, I loved it. I purchased in "wine" and it's simply beautiful. After wearing it once, I noticed little red threads ALL OVER the place. I had to wash my sheets and duvet cover and vacuum to get rid of them. I figured it was just because the shirt hadn't been washed yet. So I washed it following the instructions on the tag - on the hand wash setting. Now I have little red threads all over my washer and they're still falling off the shirt. They won't go away!! The shirt itself now looks slightly tattered. I really wanted to love this shirt, but I don't think I will be wearing it again :(
