Cherry Ash Velvet Shell

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Surprisingly flattering on me This top will flatter ladies with straighter shapes (like me), but may not be so great on bustier ladies. Why? Becos the material, indicated on the tag as "100% cotton", is slightly stiff on top with a velveteen texture, so it may over-emphasize curvier chests as it doesn't fall on the body like other flowy-er/weightier materials. The bottom skirt portion is a thinner, softer cotton with no lining. I recommend washing the top with a fabric softener first. The colours on this were as expected, and a nice mixture of bright (hot pink) and neutral (grey). The hems and trims are all done with a bit of a raw, unfinished look, which i think is a nice & edgy contrast to the tailored shape of the top. The bottom trim has silver threads running diagonally across the material, which is not obvious in the model shots. Overall, i'm happy that i took the chance to buy this top in both colours (the other being the Wasabi Floral version). I'm 5'4, 34B, 126 lbs, usually a size 4 in anthro tops, and the size 4 for this top fit great. February 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by fun and different I bought this on sale, as shown with the pants and I love them both even more in person. I love how the side zipper zips down instead of up so it doesn't show and it's not in your arm pit. I love the hot pink and ochre colors against the gray background. It will go with everything and I can wear it year round. it's shown very loose on the model, but if you get the right size, it looks better when it fits. January 17, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by not flattering This makes me look dumpy, no matter how much I like the color. Something about the width of the shoulders and the way the bodice pieces are set, it makes your bust look saggy and your torso look thick. I tried it with jeans and yanked it off. Maybe on someone reed thin and flat chested? expect that it wouldn't fit that shape -- too boxy,, February 26, 2013
