Quality top

Love this wool top! Perfect for fall but light enough for the last days of summer. Derek Lam usually runs big for me but the 38/2 fit perfectly. It's longer than I expected, but very flattering. Didn't wrinkle and the pleats held up nicely. My only complaint is that because the fabric is thick, it can pucker in weird places when you sit, but it's not a huge issue.

Great tailoring

Well made and sharp, I liked this top a lot. I found it a bit itchy/irritating because of the wool.

Great material and drama

Material was very luxe feeling and I got a lot of compliments on the design. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that there seemed to be a little material "bump" that made the fit slightly off.

Classy and stylish

I love this shirt! Wonderful to wear to work in January because the material is sturdy and it comes down lower on the hips. I wore it twice; Saturday to a dinner/date with husband and then to work. I'm a 32 DD so for the date I wore a slightly padded bra and there was a lot of cleavage. To work I wore no padding and it was very professional. LOVE! I'm an hourglass shape. 5'3" 135 lbs.

Incredible shirt for an incredibly stressful workday...

I absolutely LOVED this shirt. It fit like a glove and I got compliments on it all day at work, so many in fact that I went into the app to consider purchasing it for myself! ...Then I saw the price and the most stressful workday of being overly cautious about pen caps, coffee dribbles and salad dressing spills began. Most definitely rent this shirt for special occasions, but maybe avoid wearing it for everyday use unless you're naturally much more graceful and coordinated than I am!

Well made and unique top

This top is definitely not casual, it's a very well made, high end too good for a classy winter event. Endless compliments on it and very different than the norm. The price tag is scary on this one, so definitely no red wine for me.

Sophisticated and well made

Liked this top very much. You need to find slim pants to wear which can be challenging for work; I chose nicer helmut Lang leggings. It ran a tiny bit big on me, just a smidge.

Great shape & structure

I really love the shape of this top. I like longer shirts and this definitely fit the bill. It was probably a little low cut for me personally but I am a little busty. (and it did not stop me from wearing it three times!) It is a wool fabric which I probably would've known if I had read the description better but wasn't expecting.

Very classy- make sure you get the right size

Super classy, great material. Based on reviews, I went a size up, but it was a little large so I wore my own belt and gaped a bit on top. If you're in-between sizes, have a small chest and small rib cage, make sure you don't size up. If you have a larger chest or larger ribcage, definitely size up as there is no give in the fabric and the zipper around the ribcage is tight. Overall, though, it is a very lovely and flattering top.

Beautiful top and exquisite material. However it was a little snug.

Pros: excellent made material Very sophisticated look Cons: it's will so it is very itchy Also, here is no stretch so it flattened my breasts down.

Beautiful lines, gorgeous piece

Forewarning I rented this top when summer had yet to actually get hot - it's wool so be cognizant that it's going to be heavy and can get slightly itchy. With that said, I loved this top. Without trying I copied the model and paired with cropped white pants (but added grey heels) and got compliments all day long! Win!

Cute shirt! Runs a bit large

Wasn't flattering on my because it was just slightly too big. The material was very thick. I intended to use it in the summer but I'm not sure if it would be comfortable in the heat. Unfortunately I returned it never worn

Comfortable and modern top

I absolutely loved this top. It was very comfortable and it enhanced my figure. It's hard to tell from the picture but the modern shape was very flattering and the color perfect for my conservative office. It was a bit low cut so I wore a bralette underneath to prevent showing too much. The fabric is thick and a little warm so it was perfect for my cold office. I will definitely rent again.

Loved this unique top!

I rented this to wear to work. It was very unique and I received a lot of compliments. Although it is sleeveless, the fabric is very thick, so I would not wear in the Texas summer heat. It was low cut so I had to wear an undershirt. It was a little large around the top which you can see in the picture but not bad. I would definitely rent this again.

Great top!

I love this top but I should have ordered the 8 instead of the 10. I'd say true to size or a little large on sizing. Gorgeous, quality top. Perfect for a city commission meeting in front of a large group. Wore it with a blazer due to weather and it looked amazing.

Work Fave

Got tons of compliments when wearing this at work. Paired it with blank skinny pants and tan heels. I wore a statement necklace to throw in some flare. Was worried it would be too hot as the material is a little think but being sleeveless this did not prove to be an issue.

Perfect fit. Very flattering. Doesn't wrinkle. Love, love, love it!

Wore to work twice, both times the shirt was complimented. The fabric is very sturdy so the too keeps its structure which is rare with these peplum type tops. I would totally buy it if it weren't so expensive...still considering it.

Really weird cut, couldn't wear

Aside from this being a wool top (definitely too heavy for late May), it also had no stretch and I had to ask someone to help me get it off. It fit fine once it was on but the peplum line at the waist had no give so even though there was a zipper it was impossible to get on and off. Returned without wearing

Great with a few caveats

My Workplace is casual so dressed this down with jeans. Wish it was a little longer or shorter, hits me in the widest part of my body but otherwise the structure/cut was flattering. Also did not realize it was wool so was a little hot for summer and would be better for fall/ winter.

Looked great. Didn't feel as great.

This looked fabulous. On look alone, I'd buy it if I could. But I drive a lot for work and this top was so uncomfortable to me. This is a very tailored top. And it's wool. But it wasn't tight on me so I'm not sure why when I was sitting, it felt like someone had a death grip on me. I would rent again if I wanted to look like a million bucks. It was such a good fit and so classy. I just can't stand the thought of sitting in it again.

This shirt was larger and lower than expected. Could be good for a night out or an event, but not appropriate for work if you are not flat-chested.

Great fit and unlike anything else I've worn before. Got a lot of nice comments at work! And for busty gals, it's still totally work-appropriate despite the low-looking neck.

Amazing shirt. One of my favorite shirts I've ever worn

The thick fabric + impeccably tailored shirt make this shirt an A+. It's simple but chic. Fit wise, it's very flattering. Does have a deep slit in the front.

Runs a little large

I feel like this runs pretty large. I got the size 36, and it was pretty baggy across my 32B chest. Also a little itchy. Otherwise, this is an adorable shirt!
