Rated 1 out of 5 by Camille A top that defeats its purpose
Online, the shirt looks wonderful! But it is not what you are buying so BEWARE Beautiful, draped open back with accent chain, asymmetrical cut, and the perfect length cutting you on the hip bone instead of the waist, revealing the whole of the back. One shoulder has the opportunity to either slide down slightly or be pulled up the shoulder, allowing the shirt to be wore a few differant ways.
In person, the shirt is completely see through. COMPLETELY SEE THROUGH. Closer to a net or mesh material than to a rayon, it would be impractical to wear this top out of your house as it is wore on the model online... unless of course you wanted to get arrested for indecent exposure.
A good alternative would be to wear a bandeau or something similar but does that not defeat the purpose of an open back shirt? Should you decide to go that route be sure you are comfortable having your stomach exposed as well because as I have stated, there is no modesty in this top. You can see right though it. Even when on the hanger with both the front and back material touching - it is completely see through.
Another alternative, should you not be in the market of having people see how deep your belly button really is, you could wear a tank top under it, thus wearing two shirts and not having an open back at all.
Beautiful online, classic black, gorgeous cut, god awful material.
