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.

Beautiful colors
Date:February 24, 2014
I purchased this top in the Aqua and Red shades and I love them both! They are classy and versatile. I have worn both colors with black slacks and a black blazer and loved the look. One night after work I was on my way to an NBA game, and our team's colors are red and black. A quick change to jeans and throwing my hair up in a pony tail made for the red one being a good sports game outfit, not being too dressy or too casual.
I agree the color is a little off between the overlay and the actual shirt, but it wasn't enough stop me from purchasing it. The brightness of the colors was just too pretty to pass up.
Also, the Medium fits true-to-size and this shirt holds to expected The Limited quality.

Cute button down!
Date:February 17, 2014
I really like this shirt! I passed by it on a mannequin at the front of the store and had to try it on. I bought the blue one with the smaller printed design - I think it was incorrectly labelled on here because this one does not have sailboats at all, it's really just a small blue and white square dot pattern.
I got this is a Medium, and the fit is PERFECT on me. I have a large chest (34ddd) and for once, I am wearing a button down shirt that doesn't look pulled across my chest without having go to up to sizes that do not flatter my waistline. Great for me, maybe not so great for smaller ladies.
I marked the quality down one star because, although I do not think it is bad quality, the only button downs from The Limited that I've bought in the past were the Essential Shirt and the Ashton Blouse and, for being the exact same price, this does not feel nearly as high quality, probably because it is 100% cotton versus the blend or polyester of the others. I do not trust that this won't shrink in the dryer so I will be hang drying this.

Good Quality Staple Shirt
Date:January 29, 2014
I purchased both the black and white Essential Shirts when trying to replace some lower quality ones I had. The black shirt is my favorite button down I own, and I give that one five stars across the board. The white shirt...I have barely worn. I'd give it three stars. Another reviewer mentioned that the fit of these shirts has become more of a straight cut rather than fitted to a woman's shape (still fitted a little, but not like other Limited shirts). On the black shirt, this cut is great. It still hints at a lady shape and is quite slimming and very professional. On the white...I don't think the cut looks as good. Also, the white is very white...I think I might like it more if they made more of a soft white or off-white shirt. I have very fair skin and this washes me out. I am worried about stains too - I haven't worn it enough that anything has gotten on it, but I'm not sure how well it will hold up when that happens, especially because of how bright the white is.
However, these shirt are really good quality and very comfortable. I also appreciate that there is ample room in the bust area (I am a 34DDD and this is one of the few button ups that I can button over my bust without buttons looking like they're going to pop).
I think it is important to have both a black and white button up as a staple in your professional wardrobe, and I will completely recommend the black shirt. The white I suppose is personal preference. I think it might look very nice on someone with darker skin than I have (like the model in the picture)

First Pair of Drew Pants
Date:January 27, 2014
I really like these pants. They are very comfortable and are a great look for the office. Unlike other reviewers, I don't think the colored flecks look like lint...I matched the green flecks with a green sweater and I think the outfit turned out looking great.
My only one tiny complaint is the fit, but this is my first pair of Drew pants so I can't say for sure if I'm just not a Drew person or if it is this pair in particular...but I am a size 8 in about 90% of The Limited's bottoms that I've owned. I am still in a size 8 in these pants but it feels much tighter around the waistband and butt areas. If I were to size up, I don't think it would stay up in the back when sitting or bending, so I will keep my size 8. They fit my legs great and are overall flattering, so I am still happy.

Shellbell12's Questions
 

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.

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!
