Beautiful to wear anyplace - it just doesn't wear well!

This is such a pretty top, I was so disappointed that it seems to wear out so quickly. It can be worn for a day at the beach, great for island hopping, a night on the town or a visit to the in-laws. Wear it fast because it won't last long.

extremely useful review
This halter top by Espiral is very stylish but not for the modest at heart. It is tied behind the neck so there is alot of skin exposed in the back and shoulder area. In addition, it has a split front that teases by showing off your girls with any movement. A silver colored circle is included as functional ornamentation. It serves to hold the neck straps to the center front of the shirt and if you slide it up/down, you can control how much breast will be exposed. The purple is a deep, vibrant color and would go well with a range of complexions.

The material is a 70% polyester/30% rayon blend; think of a very lightweight jersey material. Although it is a very loose style, you will be able to see the shape of your breasts and your nipples will also be easily seen. I wouldn't wear this out in the rain, unless you are entering a "wet T-shirt contest". If so, you would probably win!

It would be hard to wear a bra with this piece because of the cut. A strapless bra with a thin back band would be needed. I wore it braless but I am searching high and low for a bra that has the cups only and uses velcro to stay in place. If your girls are perky enough, this will be great on you.

The care of this is easy: machine wash cold, gentle cycle, iron as needed. It must be line dryed. I have washed it twice. Here is my main complaint about this top, it is already starting to show some wear and pilling. I would not expect that to happen with this material or with only 2 washings. Still, it is a beautiful and sexy top.

Pay attention to the size chart. Although the top is cut large, the hem is meant to be fitted. There is some stretch to it, but too much stretch would be obvious and hug a little too closely. I am a size 12 and the large size was perfect. I am sure it would fit a size 10 and a size 14, so there is some wiggle room in fit.

I have mixed feelings about this top. I love it and it looks amazing on. It can be a casual top with shorts at the beach or an evening top for all but the most formal of affairs. It fits well and is well made and finished. It just doesn't last long. After 2 washings it is showing signs of wear. If it lasts through the summer, I'll be surprised.

If you are purchasing this for a special occasion where you want to knock everyone's socks off, this is perfect. It will serve that purpose well. Just don't get too attached to this garment as she will leave you out in the cold!
Follow-up commentary
After only 2 washings, this is starting to fall apart. The stitching in some seams has come undone, and the material is now looking like it is thinning out. Also, as I look at it more and more, it looks like a balloon on a woman's body. Not a pretty sight!

    If it was hand washed in cool water, it wouldn't have faded like you said. I grew up with my grandmother telling all the time how to wash certain things!
    Great review.
    All the best,
