Classy but not traditional
Date:December 22, 2014
I purchased these in the green color and think they're fantastic. The fit it similar to the exact stretch pants - I am a 6 in exact stretch and 8 in basically everything else from the Limited, and these fit me best in a 6. The length is great - not too long for flats but long enough for heels, and I love the green color because it's still subdued and fairly neutral but it's not like adding another black or tan pair of pants to my wardrobe. Completely recommend.

Absolutely Beautiful piece
Date:December 22, 2014
I love this top. I purchased it in green, and it looks wonderful under blazers and on its own. It will be a great piece going into spring and summer for a work-to-night transition. One issue with it is wearing a bra that the straps won't peak out from, but the shirt itself is wonderful!

Staple piece
Date:December 22, 2014
As a simple black pencil skirt, this is a definite staple wardrobe item. I like pencil skirts like this that have a wide waistband and the zipper on the side. It is slimming and true to size with other Limited skirts. Definitely recommend!

Undecided
Date:December 12, 2014
I'm undecided on this shirt. It's a BEAUTIFUL top. I've been eyeing it ever since it came on The Limited's website and I could resist buying it on the holiday sales prices. I purchased the red version and the color is wonderful, the bow is wonderful...but it just doesn't look as good on me as I wanted it to (I'm 5'9, 145 lbs, athletic/curvy build for reference). I haven't decided if I'm keeping it yet or not, I was hoping to use it for my company's Christmas dinner but we'll see. I still recommend it, on the right person it would look wonderful and it is a great quality top.

Don't love the mesh, but cute top
Date:May 20, 2014
I'm not a big fan of having a mesh top like this because cami and bra straps or tank top straps are so obvious... BUT even so, I couldn't resist buying this in mint green when it was available. It is cute with jeans or tucked into a high-waist skirt. I love the cute little opening with button closure at the neck in the back.

Classy top
Date:May 20, 2014
I bought this a few months ago in coral. I was pretty undecided on it but decided to keep it and I'm glad I did! It's a great top for warmer days for work. I wore it with the Exact Stretch Bootcut pants in Tan and the outfit looked great. The Gold Metal Closure really brought the color of my pants into the outfit, and it looked great with nude heels. Not see through at all which is nice too!

The picture online does not do it justice
Date:May 20, 2014
I'm glad I saw this at the mall instead of online, because I wouldn't have given it a second look on here!
This top is not fitted. It is quite loose around the stomach and has an elastic band along the bottom, so the hanging bit at the bottom of the shirt is much cleaner looking than the picture here. The shirt is fairly sheer, so wearing a dark cami underneath shows off an hourglass figure quite nicely, or a nude cami leaves a cleaner, no-layered look.
The gold bottons in front are cute and look nice with gold earrings or a necklace put with the outfit.
Overall a cute top. I think it looks much better in person than it does here.
The Medium fits true to size.

Comfy & Flattering
Date:May 20, 2014
I own this tee in black, light & electric blues, and pink. I love ALL of them. This shirt is so comfortable and so flattering that it is quickly becoming my staple tee. Hoping to get more colors soon!

Favorite Cami
Date:May 20, 2014
This is my favorite Limited cami. I've had issues with the Seamless and Lace Trim camis rolling up my stomach as the day goes on, so I like that this one is a little looser around the stomach so it doesn't roll. The medium is tight around the chest like another reviewer mentioned but personally I like it, because it is one of the few camis that I never have to worry about showing cleavage. It is a little see through on the lighter colors but the darker colors don't have any issue with that. It is VERY soft/silky, so I absolutely love the feel of it.

So cute! The belt makes all the difference
Date:May 20, 2014
I really like this dress. I tried both the coral and green on in store and ended up buying the green one.
I do not like this dress without the belt. I feel like the shape (or lack of shape) is quite unflattering so I would never wear it without (I am curvy, so it just hanging straight down from my bust is less-than-lovely). But, the belt cinches it in and gives me a cute ladylike shape.
The fabric is thick enough that you don't need an undershirt, although I really like the look of leaving a couple buttons undone and having a lace cami peaking through.
It's a little shorter than I think I can get away with for work, which saddens me, but I'm 5'9 so it's probably long enough for other girls. Will be great for going out after work though!
Definitely recommend. Love the look with heels and it's easy to dress up with accessories.
My only real complaint is that I wish the colors were more intense for both the coral and green. They are both quite lovely but the coral especially I wish had been brighter.
The Medium fits me the same as the regular Ashton Blouse.

Shellbell12's Questions
 

Are the charcoal pants as pictured or are they more gray?

The colored labeled charcoal looks very brown in the picture...is that accurate? Or are they actually gray as the color name "charcoal" suggests?

Is this jacket roomy?

I am a Medium in most tops from The Limited. Does this coat fit the same way as the other mediums, or is there more room inside for wearing a sweater or smaller jacket underneath? I'm just trying to figure out if it requires sizing up, or if getting a Large would be way too big on me.

Does this skirt have a pocket

Is this the same skirt that is shown with the black and white geo shirt in the ad? I need pockets with my skirts and dresses for my occupation. I did not see this information in the details of the garment.

Thanks for your time in the response, I do appreciate it.
No pockets, sorry!

Is this dress see-through?

I wouldn't recommend wearing a bright, printed pattern underneath. It is not see-through but it also wouldn't quite hide every bra I own.

What is the hem like on this shirt? Is it tucked in on the model or shorter in the front or rolled under?

It is tucked in on the model. Same length in front and back.

Is this dress true to its size?

Close to true-to-size, but size down if you're between. I am usually an 8, sometimes a 10 depending on the item. The 8 felt a little loose, probably because of the stretch of the fabric, so I tried a 6 as well. I ended up buying the 8 but I'd say this runs slightly large.

How does this dress fit?

Does it fit too small to big?
Seems either true to size or maybe slightly small. I am usually a size 8 but my local store was out of 8's so I tried a 10. A little looser than I would have liked but not as loose as 10's usually feel to me.

Can "online only" purchases be returned at a store?

Definitely. The Limited is very easy to return to in-store, as long as it's within 60 days of the date printed on your packing slip.

Is this skirt high or low-waisted?

I'm looking for a skirt that is low-waisted, that sits just above the hips.
This might be a little higher than what you're looking for. Mine sits partway between my hips and waist, so it all depends on how it fits you. Sorry if that isn't helpful!

does this shirt need to be ironed?

I would say usually typically yes, or take it out of the dryer immediately and hang it up.

You could also get a wrinkle-releaser (I recommend Downy's), and that could get you by if you want to wear this more than once between washes or if it gets wrinkled in the closet. In the morning as you're getting ready, just spray the wrinkle releaser lightly all over the shirt, and stick it in the dryer while you shower, and voila!
