Women's Starfish Elbow Sleeve Stripe Terry Open Crewneck
Pretty for summer
This is a pretty and flattering top. Nice hip length and elbow sleeves flatter. I bought the seagreen which is a pretty pastel. I think the fabric is going to be fine for summer, it feels more cottony than polyester.

Yes to the fit and feel, no to the stripes
SO wanted to keep this but ended up sending it back. This top is exactly as described and the fit is accurate. The French terry feels amazing against the skin. It's soft and so comfortable, yet light enough for in-between weather. The boxy fit might not be for some, but I like that. I also loved the tennis tail hem, not just for the rear coverage but also it just makes a change from the usual straight t-shirt hem. Same goes for the elbow-length sleeves. For me, the wide blue and white stripes were a deal-breaker. They are pretty, but not flattering on me and it was a bit too nautical-looking for my personal taste. It just didn't go with anything else in my wardrobe. Would definitely order again in a different color!

I really wanted this top to work, because it looked cute in the photo's. Size seems to run small. Material is odd. It has that loopy threaded interior and overall it makes the weight of the top too heavy for summer use. Would have been great if it had just been regular t-shirt material.

Love this shirt, it is great french terry.
Does fit a bit big & boxy, but that is the style. Too warm for summer but perfect for winter on the south coast where I live. Got the blue & now will get the green stripe.

This shirt runs large and the fit is boxy, not fitted. The colors are super cute, the fabric is soft, thick enough for spring, probably too heavy for summer. The biggest problem I have with this shirt is that the inside is open weave terry. As in you can see all the little cloth hoops. What that means is if you come home, unhook your bra and walk around for a bit like that the hooks on your bra will tear up the inside of the shirt. Front or back hook bra. Even if you unhook and do the whole pull out one arm thing you still have to be really careful not to snag the inside of the shirt. You don't want to machine wash it inside out because any hoodie zipper would tear up the inside, etc., etc...
I've had it about 30 days, love the feel enough to have worn each color at least twice, and the inside of the green one isn't looking great. I don't know how long these will last. WAY too much money for how quickly it is tearing up. I'm glad I bought them, but I'm happier I didn't pay full price because I doubt the shirt will last more than one season.

Not what it appears to be.
This shirt is made of real thin material and it wrinkles easly. It is not as nice and crisp as the picture shows.

Color great -- fit is VERY large. Wear a medium (which I ordered) -- the shirt fits larger than extra large!!!
I was very disappointed in this shirt -- looks so cute in the picture but the fit way larger than size would in- dicate. The material was rather odd -- almost had a thermal-type lining. Needless to say I'm returning. Don't know what's happened to Lands End -- almost always disappointed anymore with anything I order from them. Have many items I ordered years ago that I still enjoy wearing -- could always always count on Landsend's quality but no more
