Scoop-back textured long-sleeve thermal with embellished cuffs. Sheer lattice panels at wrists with floral inserts and hook-and-eye closures.
Bali Babe...top as pictured.
Received this as a gift. This top as pictured on website. In my opinion, material is thick and super soft. Natural color is as shown. Didn't find the back too low - wore with a shelf-bra tank top. Sleeves not too long, and lace sleeves stayed in place (prongs did not unclip). Length - can be tucked in or worn out and layered. Would recommend this top. True to size.
Pleased with purchase!
I bought this item with hesitance after reading in the reviews that the sizing was a little off, especially around the shoulder area. I would agree with these comments and say that unless you have relatively broad shoulders, this top tends to fall off the shoulders slightly. Apart from this, I am overly satisfied with the purchase... The material doesn't stretch, the cuffs are intricate, the stitching is of a high quality. Would definitely recommend this product as an everyday basic item that can be worn in the autumn and winter months!
Good, not great
I ordered this in XS. It runs a bit smaller and the fit is weird. As mentioned in other reviews, it slips off the shoulders and the open back is silly. Why would you wear such a thing in cold weather? But the sleeves are a beautiful lace design and are truly unique. Overall a good shirt that just needs a bit of tweaking.
Not true to color
I bought the Black based on the shirt featured in the picture. What I received in the mail is a "black" that looks like it's been washed a few times with bleach Turning it into a brown/black with yellow bleach spots. I also went down a size("XS") due to the reviews about the sleeve length and the shoulders but I might need to go up to a "S". I'm not sold on this and for the price I don't think I'm going to keep it. A shame too because I was so excited for this shirt :(
Hi LcnmL06, We're sorry to hear about this! Someone from our team will reach out soon. - Free People
...an "ivory" thermal that is really ivory; not dirty white, not yellowish, not oatmeal, but clean ivory. I'm so happy w/that that I can overlook the sliding off the shoulders issue. I'll deal w/it. I have a very long torso/arms so the sleeves were perfect for me. My only complaint was when I was hand-washing it, it wouldn't submerge in the water because the material is sorta rubbery feeling - spongy - anyway fp are you using different material on your thermals now? Usually a fp small but always size up to medium on thermals.
Ladies, try it before you buy it!
I agree with the other reviewers. This top has issues. I take a S or M in FP thermal tops. I found a M on sale in another store and tried it on. It would not stay on my shoulders and the sleeves came down past my fingertips. It's also a somewhat thinner thermal and even though the top wasn't tight, it showed the lace on my bra and the button on my jeans. Not a good look, and not worth the full price in my opinion.
Another gorgeous cuff thermal, but..
Typical of the beautiful cuff thermals Free People sells.. but it runs slightly large in the entire sleeve area. I ordered the mushroom colorway, which looks just like the photos. The back is open just like the photos, but a strapless bra does not show and works really well for this. However, the shoulders slip a little, and also the cuffs are long enough to cover your hand. The issue(here's the "but") is that the cuffs have several hook and eye closures that do NOT stay closed, which they look cool open, but will hook to the lace on the opposite sleeve while you are doing things(driving, checking out in stores, etc etc) and put you in an awkward position where your wrists are eye-hooked together... So I'm planning on sewing mine shut for safety reasons.. ha
This just barely worked for me. Have to go with a Large for fitted tops, but same as the other review, the material is barely staying on top of my shoulders. Also, I have the biggest German shoulders of anyone I know. If you have small to medium shoulders and need a Large, the top is probably not going to work for you. Other than that, it is a cute thermal and love the very beautiful cuffs.

I tried this top on in one of our shops. and did not find a proper fit. I'm 5'3" tall and I found no matter what size I tried on, the sleeves were LONG... I'm talking extremely long. They came at least 4-5" beyond my fingertips. This was the M and L sizes.I tried on the Ivory-it was a lovely color combo but I agree the back caused the top to slide off shoulder too easy. I don't consider my arms short either.In comparison,the L in the Sunnie Valley tee is fine.Sleeves are a bit long but workable,
