Why is it a good deal? 💰

When the dog days of summer hit, you kind of need more than a few options. When tops are $35 or $40 each, it starts eating into your fun budget. At $17, the price is low enough that you can afford to look cute and have fun at the same time. And maybe pick up a couple more! (Note that prices vary slightly by color and pattern.)

Why do I need this? 🧐

In the summer, we want to look and feel our best without showing too much skin — this adorable, whimsical top does just that. It's chiffon made with polyester, which means it's delicate and feminine without clinging to your body (that's a feature we all look for in the summer). It has a flattering V-neck with ties on either side that you can use to close the top with just a peephole across your chest, or you can let them hang for an easy-going vibe. It also has cheery sleeves that wave when the breeze picks up.

What reviewers say 💬

More than 6,000 happy Amazon shoppers are ready to take on summer in this breezy beauty.

Pros 👍

"Very cute top," a stylish shopper wrote. "I am 64 years old and this doesn't look too young for me. It is a great fit and the fabric is night and light. It will be great for the hot humid days of summer in the South!"

"So flattering!" another savvy shopper wrote. "I am so nervous about ordering online since I gained weight during menopause. Light, breathable fabric and the way it drapes on the sides gives a slimming effect! I will order more!"

"Very flattering if you have a tummy," shared a third rave reviewer. "I loved it so much I bought three shirts with different patterns."

Cons 👎

A few shoppers pointed out a drawback or two. "Tiny bit snug," reported this user, who also called this top flattering. "Size up if you like roomy clothing. Colors are nice, [they] match my peach pants. Pretty sleeves."

"It doesn't have a lot of stretch, but is comfortable," wrote another. "I wore it to work as I felt it was dressy enough and what do you know, I have a cardigan that matches it exactly. The only thing I found irritating is that the strings/ties were just a bit too long so I just tied a bigger bow. I may cut off an inch or so and just hand-sew the ends."
