Texture & Thread Gathered-Sleeve Top

Texture & Thread Gathered-Sleeve Top is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVELY I agree with other reviewers that this top does run a bit large. However, it wasn’t as cropped as I worried it would be—and I’m happy about that, as I’m 5’10” with a 32DD bust and a long torso. Wearing this with 10” high-waisted jeans keeps my stomach covered just fine at work (and outside of work, who cares?). This top isn’t as billowy as it seems in the pictures, but I think the texture elevates the style and the weight helps it stay in place and not ride up. Also, the color is lovely on darker skin tones. I typically take a Small in Madewell tops and tees, and this in an XS fit me perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute top but runs huge This top is made of thick material of great quality. The thin horizontal ribbing gives structure so it doesn't look sloppy. Even though the fabric is heavier weight, the top isn't too stiff. The top doesn't drape quite as softly as it looks on the model though. The neck line is flattering - not too low/deep and not too high - and creates a look of graceful, long neck. The black is true black and the blush color is a beigey faded coral (not very pink). The bad news is that it runs huge. I love oversized anything but this in XXS felt like a S. I would have bought both colors if it weren't so big. I'm small chested and have narrow shoulders and I think this top will look best on similar body type. If you like thicker and more structured (but not stiff) tops you'll enjoy this one. I would suggest sizing down 1 or 2 if you want to wear it like shown on the model. If you have larger chest, wider shoulders and/or athletic shape you might not love it - the sleeves are quite poofy and large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute + comfy but fits loose Love this top because it's comfortable like a t-shirt but looks fancier. I was complimented on it right away the first time I wore it. I sized down from a M to S and still could have gone smaller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute summery top I just bought this top and love it! It's flowy and comfy and super cute with high waisted jeans or shorts. The neckline seems to run a little low, so could be good with a little bralette underneath. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super Big, Super Cropped, Super Low Cut I really, really wanted to love this top! The style looks so cute online. When I pulled it out of the bag, I was really impressed with the weight of the shirt, the texture of the shirt (you don't really notice it online)...and then I opened it up and saw how short it was. Ugh. Now, I'm 5'. Not tall by any means and if I barely lift my arms my whole stomach shows. Yes, I can do a cute front tuck like the model, but that doesn't prevent the rest of the shirt from raising up. The other problem is that it's SO big. I ordered an XXS and the XS ( I wear from XXS-S in Madewell) and the XXS was really big on me. The other negative was the low cut. It was REALLY low. If I was to bend down, my boobs would be totally on display. So, all day you'd basically be hiking the neckline up and pulling the shirt down, no thanks. Super big, super cropped, super low cut. What do they say? Three strikes, you're out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super duper cropped Agree with the other review that it's not as drapey as it seems in the photos. Also want to note that it is much more cropped than I excepted. The description does say slightly cropped, but that is a bit misleading. I can usually make "slightly cropped" shirts work as shorter shirts, but this was too cropped for me. I got an XS, don't have a particularly long torso and this was basically a belly shirt on me (with 9" jeans on). I think sizing up would just make it more boxy. Overall though the fabric is sturdy, the color is super pretty. Just not sure if I would recommend due to the crop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great color and fabric The color and fabric of this top is top notch. But with the big sleeves and boxy shape, it doesn’t make for a very flattering silhouette for a body like mine (that is broad shouldered, busty, and tall), especially with that deep scoop neck. But I will totally wear it as a top layer over a t-shirt because the fabric and color are beautiful. And perfect for NYC summer street wear which can go from steamy to chilly in, well, a New York minute.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super cute.... too short Love Madewell.... however this top is too short. It does not appear to be a crop on the model however it is. I don’t want to return it as I love the color and the material. Absolutely love the sleeves! Going to see if one of my daughters can wear it with a pair of high rise shorts. That’s what the top needs. Not good for work which is why I bought it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice spring top Great quality! The color is more vibrant than the picture. I was expecting a more soft pink but I still like it! It is also shorter than I was expecting but if I wear high waisted pants then it’s great!!
