Recently I was mooching around on the Ann Summers website. They sent me an email telling me all about the sale they had (have) on and offered me a further 20% off and I couldn't resist in peeking...and spending rather alot of money on there!
I love clothes and one of the things that took my eye from the photograph (which you can see from the top of this page) was this bright pink cami. Reduced from £25.00 to £5.00 I decided that was a 'me' top and placed my order fast before they sold out.
The top comes in sizes 8, 10-12, 14-16 and 18-20 and is of course for women (in the main!) and it's name of design is Carly and the correct title of the colour is fuchsia (according to the label that came attached to it!).
It is of course as the title top this review suggests...a cami but more in particular its a halter-neck cami. It is an outwear item and Ann Summers say to wear it anywhere you want to be megawatt glam....
However sadly this is just a little bit on the tacky side all in all. The colour of this is nice enough if you like really, really pink and the colour of that pink is shown as true as it is on the review photograph on the top of this page. It comes slightly fitted to the waist though does give slightly due to the mesh top material that this is made up of so you get like a lining and a light covering over that.
The bust has a hidden v wire (that you can't feel at all) and that gives a really big plunge to the front of the top (so no good for shy girls), it has a slightly but well covered elastic band around the back so that it fits comfortably and the whole thing ties up around the back of the neck with the mesh and there is plenty of material there to do that so with.
I found this very comfortable to wear and I picked it in a good size which I pondered about for ages because I am a true size 10 at the moment but thought a size 10-12 would drown me so I got the the 8 and because it is stretchy it fits brilliantly. The cups are gently padded so I don't need to wear a bra with it and it washes great (hand-wash only) and I find no need to bother ironing this and being the material that it is it dries in a really short amount of time so its an easy to care for piece of clothing.
Because of the colour of this I think it looks a bit cheap though and I'm not one bit keen on the material in its appearance and the worst bit is that below the cups and on the outside of the top where the garment is stitched lit looks shoddily done and looks like it breaking apart, and I mean that was before I ever wore it, just for a fiver I couldn't be bothered to go through the rigmarole of sending it back!
It does look ok on, you just need some confidence to wear it and pull it off mind you! It has no support really to the bust section and it is impossible to wear a bra with this for obvious reasons and the only thing I can say that Ann Summers really did protect us from was sticking out nipples!
Not a horrendous top, just not worth £25.00, but not bad for a fiver!
