I bought this top in Watermelon and love the color and material....but as other reviews have said, it is definitely completely open in front, with nothing holding the top together. I had to use clothing tape to keep the top attached to the other side; even then it did not look right and sat funny.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This shirt is very soft, but the picture is a little decieving. The opening in the front isn't stitched at all, so it's more like an open vest. You'll have to wear a tank top beneath it or stitch it yourself. The material is soft and vibrant. Would buy again, just wished they had a better picture of how it actually fits.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
