Women's Plus Size Dolman Sleeve Drapeneck Top
I purchased a few of them. They don't run small. The problem is after 1 wash in my front loader and hung dry. There were at least 5 holes in the shirt. The quality is very poor. I Don't recommend this at all. I will be returning them. Very thin material and not quality made. Don't waste your money.

I read the reviews for this item very carefully, as I know dolman (or batwing) sleeves can make a plus-size person look even plussier. But I love these autumn colours so much and the model looks so stylish in this top I decided to risk ordering some and see. My first reaction is that Lands End sizing is off the hook. I got the 0X, which is two sizes bigger on me in other styles, and it was teensy... the arm bands were so tight i could barely pull them up, and the length of the top was so short that when I raised my arms the bottom hem shot up over my ribs! Not practical. But somehow I liked the feel of it... the soft fabric, the drapey neck and colours were so appealing. So I reordered some in every Plus size up to 3X, just to see (not a cheap practice for me; duties to Canada are steep. Wish there was a way to try this stuff on in a shop!).
I found the 2x was perfect - it doesn't pull up much when I raise my arms, the sleeves aren't tight and it drapes around my hips in a comfortable, and dare I say it, flattering way. The neck can reveal a bit too much skin, but that's easily solved with a cami. Brick and Alpaca are my faves. It would be awesome to have this style in navy, brown and charcoal.

like the colour and fit
I like the light weight fabric, can wear a camisole underneath if I want...add jazzy earrings and good to go!

Lovely material. Not too clingy. It has a sort of band at the bottom that make it look more put together than other blouses. I love it. I'm wearing mine to a Xmas party!

I wasn't too sure about this shirt when I ordered it but was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on.
I am a full figured lady and I love how this hangs and hides some areas I don't want attention drawn too.
I also like the length of it and the band at the bottom makes it feel more finished unlike normal shirts.
Yes the fabric is thinner than I expected and I was concerned at first, but once I wore It I actually like the weight of it. I think that if it was a thick fabric it wouldn't do well on plus size. I ended up putting a cami on under it and it is great! I also plan on putting a turtleneck under it of the same fabric weight when it gets colder.
I actually went online to order more but I don't really like the other colors so I guess I will just have to enjoy the one that I have.

Top was poor quality - very thin fabric
I returned this top as it was of thin fabric and not flattering

great color and relaxed fit
I use this for work with tailored slacks and it fits wonderfully. Being a bigger girl, I make sure to use the proper undergarments for support and that makes all the difference in the fit. This fits loosely over the bust, and is more fitting over the hips so it balances a bigger bottom. Ordered the beige color and now am ordering the orange color. Perfect price with reduction, even though I purchased the first one full price!

Love the style.
I read some negative reviews but decided to order anyway as I once had a sweater similar to this one that looked really good on me and was comfy to wear. I tried it on as soon as it came in and just love the way it looks. We used to call this a "batwing" sleeve. Because it has no inset seam, it is very forgiving when it comes to fitting on the shoulder, so if yours are wide, as mine are, or sloping, as my daughter's are, the fit is still great. The material is thin, so I tried it with a turtle neck underneath and it looks great this way as well and extends the seasons to at least three. I plan to wear it with jeans and chinos.

Ordered the green and orange. Liked the fit but the fabric's too thin. Because the fabric's thin, band at bottom stretched out. I wear the tops under a longish sweater vest which is not what I intended. Would have returned but too much hassle. I wear the tops under a longish sweater vest. Expected better quality from Land's End.

Not flattering at all!
The fabric and colour (aubergine plum) are nice. However, the style/shape of this top is all wrong for me. The weird undefined sleeves and the seam down the middle feel very awkward. I also felt that it was much shorter than most of the other Land's End tops I own, which made me self-conscious. This top was so disappointing that I have to return it.
