After seeing pictures of myself in this top, in my case at least, it does anything but "minimize" me, but rather tends to make me look twice as big. lol It's still a nice top though & worth a try for those who are perhaps on the fence about it. While I'd recommend a friend try it if they were 110lbs. I don't think I would for a 1X, 2X plus lady. I've worn in once in all the months I've had it. :(


Great Top

By Soccer/Hockey Mom x3


Silver Reviewer

Love this on those days I don't feel like getting dressed. Works awesome with leggings and skinny jeans. It is so comfortable, but doesn't look sloppy or dressed down casual. It makes you feel good on your sloppy days. If I have to go out on those days, I throw on a colorful scarf and some cute ballet flats and it looks smart and put together even though it really is the style/comfort of a sweatshirt. As another reviewer mentions you do need a tank or t-shirt underneath. My only complaint is the fitted sleeve does not stay up for me, perhaps that is only an issue for the smaller size.

Beautiful Top!!

By Cheryl

from Edmonton

I bought this top in black and was so happy with the softness of the material.I missed out on the long tank top so will be watching for that again.The quality and the flattering criss cross would be perfect for every body shape,and the long sleeves will be a welcome addition into fall and winter!!I am thinking I might get the khaki or the burgundy top too. Thanks to Robin for bringing such unique items for all us woman to enjoy!!


Minimize - Me criss cross top

By Elizabeth

from North Vancouver

Love this Top- Minimize is exactly what it does !
I choose the pale grey, if Robin brings this style in again, maybe in a different fabric ??
Just for a change...
Now that I have it maybe I will pick up in another colour.


It really minimizes!

By Doubledogowner

Lovely soft knit - and the draping across the tummy really does the trick. I have it in the grey, and might get it in peacock.

Sleeves are tight at the wrist but still comfortable.


Love...Love it

Just received the burgandy and its so beautiful. The fabric is so soft and the color is bright. Will have to have the back shortened as I am short waisted and a size XL. Just ordered the periwinkle. I can see wearing this often and with different tops underneath I can get several different looks. Thanks Artizan keep designing styles that hide that middle aged tummy area.

Fun and Funky

By Silly Me

All Star Reviewer

Love this top! Nice, no-wrinkle fabric that hides all the nasty bits. I like the snugness of the 3/4 sleeves below the elbow. I ordered burgundy & it's a lovely shade. If there's one negative it's that the hem is a raw, unfinished edge & I'm not a fan of cutting corners in that way. I wish it was a finished hem & I'm wondering how it'll hold-up after repeated washings. This top will look best with tights, skinny jeans or a pencil skirt, but requires a longer length black tank top or whatever colour you wish to wear under it.


Amazing top!

By TSC shopper

I saw this and it was in my cart even before it aired! Once I saw it, I was sold! Got it today...WOW! The fabric is so soft, I usually wear a Medium top, it looks fantastic! I got it to wear in the fall, and to holiday events...with black pants/leggings...gonna be so comfy and look very dressy! I also got the camisole, knit wrap and skinny bands! Love all of it! This is the first time I have ordered from this line and it won't be the last! I keep checking back for the Blockbuster "Rochelle Lounge top and scarf" in black...will be ordering that if one comes back in the system! Thank you so much for offering these fantastic pieces!!!!
