The Heart Opener Knit Cami was TTS. I generally get a size 6 in the tie up tanks depending on the overall cut of the tank. I knew this would be a slimmer fit from looking at it on the hanger. The knit is beautiful. This tank requires you to tie it because it has a split back. It’s not functional and because the knit is so delicate, I’d be afraid to wear it. So, this is also a no for me.
From the upload, I thought I would really like this tank. This was a size up for me as well. I really thought my TTS would fit because it was flowy tank but no go. The fabric is the same silk blend as the Heart Opener LS. I didn’t think this tank did anything for me. It was too low cut in the front and I don’t know how it would look with a non-v shaped bra. I think it also looked awkward around the armholes. This is not a functional tank. This was one of the items I thought I would like but after trying it on, it was a no.
The Heart Opener LS was a size up. I usually wear a size 4 in looser LS shirts. The fabric was so silky and thicker than I expected. I felt a bit hot trying this on and there was a lot less give in it. It has a wide neck opening with dropt shoulders. Something was off about the proportions of the sleeves to the body of the shirt. It felt tight around the upper arms, the length of the sleeves was long and then it was too loose around the waist. From the front, I didn’t think it draped on me well but the back was better. I tried on 2 sizes up and the upper arms fit better but the sleeves were way too long and shirt was too big around the torso. Again, this was a no for me.
The idea of the cloak is nice. And in the sneak peak email and the upload, it looked nice because there was movement in the pictures. But just standing facing the mirror, the cloak does nothing and just looks like large panels of fabric. It was also too long. It looked better on an ed that’s at least 3 inches taller than me. The cloak has arm holes. The fabric is a silk blend that is knitted. It felt like butter but its too delicate. It will definitely snag. It’s not really functional; I think I would be adjusting it constantly. Definitely a no for me.
If you don’t like crop tops, you won’t like the Heart Opener Knit Wrap. My TTS was too small so I sized up. I also tried on 2 sizes up but then the arms got to long and bunched up around my wrists. I really like the wrap. My concern is that it is going to snag on everything! The knit was lightweight and very delicate. I had to go through the entire rack to find one that wasn’t too snagged. The only use I would get is to/from the gym but then I’d have to figure out what tank I could wear underneath. The more technical tanks wouldn’t work with it because the fabrics wouldn’t match. I bought it but it may be returned because I’m not sure how much I will really wear it. I noticed that the GAP had lots of wrap items in cotton. So, if I want a trendy piece like the wrap, I could just get one of those. But the knit is so gorgeous! I’m so torn!
