Women's Plus Size Elbow Sleeve Pattern Squareneck Top
I love everything about this top EXCEPT that it will shrink a lot if you follow the washing and drying instruction. I use the delicate cycle and hang to dry. They will need to be ironed a bit but I don't mind because it is such a comfortable and pretty top.

Looks well when a more dressy appearance is required. I am great full for Lands End once again. Shopping on line is appreciated!

the elbow length sleeves are awkward. a very unflattering sleeve length (at least on me). Very boxy fit. I love the color (purple) and the neck line. But I am returning it - sleeves are too off-putting

Yes, it's boxy, and roomy
but I like it. I haven't washed it yet. It fits good in the shoulders but is very straight from there down. I won't be upset if it shrinks just a bit when washed.

Cute idea, but too square
I love the idea of this shirt and particularly like the outfit shown on LE with the white cardigan and chinos. I just could not match the look. The shirt was too big and too boxy to look remotely attractive.
I am going to give this one another shot, but in a smaller size. If it fit correctly, the look would be adorable.

Compliments, compliments, compliments
Everyone should have one polka dot shirt in their wardrobe for spring. The material is not clingy or cheap and it washed up like a dream. Why are not all shirts at Lands End made like this? I own many knit shirts from this company and very few are made as well as this and can be worn comfortably on its own.

I ordered this in the navy dot. It fit fine, very pretty, in fact I loved it. Then I washed it. It looks like it has been washed 50 times. White fibers stick out of the blue portion. It looks old and shabby now. I washed it in Woollight and I turned it outside in. It will go back. These new tops are so thin and the fabric such low quality. Bring back the supima cotton. Not like the supima tees as they are awful now and need to be ironed with each use. I could get this fabric and the modal tops, too, for about $1 at the fabric store.
I am about to give up on LE as there seems to be no quality anymore.

Love the Elbow Sleeves
I also like the fit of these. As a "plus" size, I don't want anything fitted or clingy. I just want tees to fit in the shoulders and hang straight down with no clinging to any bumps or lumps and these do that. I like the square neckline also. They do seem different from last year's which is a little shorter. Also, I ordered 3 of these elbow-sleeve shirts and they all came out of the same wash load with slightly different lengths.
However, I have to say that this CORAL is really a very bright orange and that's how it should be labeled - orange. Coral is supposed to be a pinkish orange and there is no pink whatsoever in this color. I will keep and wear around the house but the color is really a little garish. I've been shopping with LE for 40 years and I will say my biggest complaint has always been the strange colors that seem to bear little relationship to what's going on in the rest of the fashion world. Also, every top comes in pretty much the same few colors so it limits how many tops I will buy since I don't want to have multiple tops in the same colors.

Pretty shirt, dumpy shape
I bought this shirt not realizing that is has a somewhat straight shape. This make it have a less feminine look. I felt it looked dumpy on me. (Looks great on the model)! It is well constructed and covers a decent portion of the arm. However I am returning it because of the shaping.

This is a great top. It's a good fit for a round body like mine, snug but not tight. The fabric is wonderfully soft and the neckline is flattering. Please Lands' End can you make this in more colours? I'll be wearing this to work and around town and I can see me buying more if you make different colours. I bought the navy and it is very dark (pink isn't my colour).
