Rated 5 out of 5 by 123abc Barbara Hulanicki Printed Double Front Top
Was surprised by the weight of the top as I took it out of the parcel - but there is a significant double weight of material at the front as the extra piece runs from the neckline, where there is a nice pleated detail, down and into the waistband across the whole of the front - almost like having a kangaroo pocket!
That said, top is a beautifully soft viscose material and is very comfortable to wear. Colours are much nicer than they looked on the web photo and would suit most skin tones and hair colours.
Nice easy care material, so can be washed and dried with minimum effort - if taken from the washer as soon as load finishes, it doesn't need ironing if put on a hanger to dry!
Excellent value for money for a really unusual design that looks much more expensive than it is. Would love to see other colourways available.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Daydream2 Design Alterations needed
The top , neckline and sleeves were really nice but the front draped section had too much material which caused the material to gape exposing the reverse of the material. to remedy this about 6" of gathers need doing neat the side seam. Also it was very heavy and not something you could take if you were going on a plane when there are luggage weight restrictions. would have been better if the background colour was white or beige the shade of pink used is awful. I returned the top very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nanaann lovely top!
Fancied this on line when I was looking for other items, so I sent for it and when it arrived I was really pleased, it looks great with black trousers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kaybel Great for my apple shape
I really like this top because I think it looks good and covers my middle brilliantly. It's a bit on the big side, but the next size down wasn't available. I will probably take it in a fraction at the bottom, so it fits round my hips more snugly. I think it may be a love it or hate it top - I love it, as does my sister and mum. My husband thought it looked like a maternity top suitable for doing the cleaning!! I'm keeping it and wearing it anyway!

Rated 5 out of 5 by softsqueeze Good purchase
Excellent fit. Lovely material. I didn't understand what the double front meant in the top's description. It just means there is an extra layer of material so the front hangs more loosely which is a bonus if you have a tummy bulge you want to cover. would definitely recommend this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by telehappy Not as per picture
Strange fit - did not feel that the photograph of this item described the top well enough - just not suitable for some shapes and seemed untidy style - not for me but could be for someone else - usually very happy with items purchased but not on this occasion.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Esec12 Weird flappy front
Lovely fabric and fit but very odd flappy layer on the front, felt like a massive pouch. Couldn't get on with it flapping about so I returned it. Shame as excellent quality and fabric. If I saw this in the sale I would re-purchase and cut the front panel off.
