To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this top because I love long armed short-sleeved tops. This one is a nice mix of cotton & polyester (?) in a low rib and short mock turtle. It’s very fashion-forward & looks to be of a designer quality/cut. The first time I wore it I garnered many compliments. It’s easy care and I hope w/ careful care, it lasts a long time. I highly recommend it. I also bought the turquoise & am very happy w/ both.
As most women probably already know, the "mock" neck is the new neckline for 2020! I was always a fan of the mock neck, as it's a cross between a crew neck and a full on turtleneck, so I was glad to see this neckline make a comeback! The Drop, one of Amazon's newer clothing lines, has a variety of women's and men's clothing and each article so far has been constructed with excellent quality...no hanging threads, always straight lines sewn along the cuffs and hems and material to die for! I have about 8 different tops from The Drop, so it's a large enough variety for me to be able to share and compare my thoughts on them.
With that being said, this pure white mock neck is made with a ribbed material, 92% modal (a cotton like fabric) and 8% Elastane (a spandex like material), and has elbow length sleeves. This is an excellent combination for elevating a causal "tee" shirt to a dressy tee shirt. I've worn this mock neck with a pair of faded and destroyed jeans and boots and a few long necklaces and it looks fabulous. I've also worn this mock neck with a black pencil skirt to a meeting, which I was completely appropriately dressed for. Having the elbow length sleeve gives this tee shirt that little extra to look really sharp as well as be office appropriate and polished. The fabric is not thin or see through at all, it has a good weight to it and drapes almost with a silky feel to it.
As far as sizing goes....I'm 5'7" tall with an athletic build. I weigh 140lbs and I wear a 34 D size bra. I purchased both the size Medium and Large and found that either one would be fine, so I find this tee shirt to be true to size, as I normally take a Medium in most tops, which is a women's size 8. When I laid them out on the bed with the Large one underneath the Medium, I found the only real difference was a half inch more width in the large as well as an extra inch and half in the length with the Large.
The size Medium was slightly more form fitting, but not body-con fitting by any means. The large felt just a little more roomy but the additional length was most helpful for me. The size Large lands about 3" lower than my hip bones and I found this to be a great length for me, especially to tuck it in. It's long enough that it didn't come untucked at all and I didn't have to fuss with it at all. If I wanted to wear the shirt with just the front tucked in at one side, the size Medium would be perfect for that.
As for price (less than $25), this is not a "throw" in the drawer cotton tee shirt, but rather it doubles as a work appropriate top as well as a weekend wear top for an evening dinner out, so I feel it's a good value because it's a classic "tee" that will be able to be used for many different occasions and for a long time, if cared for properly. I definitely give this one 5 STARS and would recommend to friends and others looking for a lasting wardrobe staple! I hope my honest review of this top helps you with sizing, etc.
I could have done the small or the medium however I went with the medium for length. This shirt is a great staple to keep in the closet. The material is so soft. The mock neck is not too tight which is great for me. The small was nice and fitted on me (5’5 130) but like I mentioned a little shorter than I wanted to I went with medium. The medium is a little looser but has the length that I would want to be able to tuck in and get more longevity out of. Overall a great staple and for the price I’m very happy to keep in my closet!
I liked this shirt because its a classic style that you can wear for years. The sleeve length was a plus for me, longer than your typical short sleeve but not quite a 3/4 sleeve and the sleeve stays close to your arm so it doesn't get caught up in your jacket (if you happen to wear with a jacket/sweater). I liked the material because its lightweight but I will say that it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I ended up getting this in white as well as turquoise/blue/green. I thought the price was fair for what you get. 4 starts because I thought the material would be nicer but still a good product.
Great shirt to wear under blazers or with high waisted jeans/skirts. Shirt is textured and washed well - however, I washed in cold, inside-out and did not dry in dryer. Seasonal: all year wear Dress-up or down Perfect Business Casual piece Fit: true to size I chose a small - normally a 2-4 / small Not structured - more like T-shirt material with rib texture.
The shirt is quite fitted and on the short side. (I am 5'3") yet is simultaneously flattering. Will look great both with high waisted skinny jeans and under a blazer or sweater for work but not worth 25 bucks.
