The top was absolutely beautiful when I tried it on. Thanks to the previous reviewer, I ordered Large instead of my normal Medium even though I'm slim. Although I normally like lower necklines, I found the style and print extremely flattering. I always wash or clean every new item before wearing. I decided to hand wash this top instead of machine washing to preserve the print. I used cold water and the fragrance free, color safe liquid for delicate care that I always use. I've never seen the dye in a garment bleed so heavily as with this top. At first it seemed like it would permanently cover the white part of the print, but with many cold rinses, the dye finally washed out, leaving the white areas a soft pink. The raspberry color has less intensity but even with the softer colors, the top is still beautiful. I returned to buy another one - I planned to take it to a fine cleaners to see if they could do anything to preserve the color.
Beautiful top, runs small
This is a beautiful top, just received today. Color is truly raspberry, tie dye on bottom edge interesting, but it runs small -- I normally wear an XL in TA clothes and this is about 1/2 to 3/4 size too small. Sadly I'm sending it back. I gave it a 4 because the print is right on the surface and it's almost scratchy. Prefer prints to be softer. Also, I prefer more scooped necklines rather than jewel. More flattering on me.
