Pineapple Longline Off the Shoulder Top
I am old enough to remember the Pineapple Dance Studio craze and the first spin-off merchandising from the chain. Personally I bought a few bits and one of my favourite and longest lasting pieces is the blue acrylic top.
As far as I remember this top came in small, medium and large sizes only and was only offered in pale blue.
The top is comfortable and easy to wear and is great to pop on at the start of a workout or when you start the cool off period. Equally, if the room is a little chilly the baggy style ensures that it does not restrict movement in any way if you keep it on throughout the workout. The loose style neck can be worn to fall of either shoulder or as a wide necked top and the longer line ensures that it keeps the vital organs warm across the lower back.
Mine has been worn quite easily in excess of 300 times and washed almost as frequently, yet it has not lost shape or colour. It is great to wear to and from classes and is not out of place worn with Jeans when going for a quick drink on the way home or something.
Price and Availability:
These day's a similar item is available in a choice if colours and with a cotton, polyester, viscose mix from Pineapple on-line at £23.00. I cannot imagine that top would last as long as the one I have, but it is still a good price for a branded work-out top nevertheless. Pineapple Dancewear and Sports clothing can be bought in small collections from a few outlets such as Littlewoods, Fifty-Plus and Debenhams or the full range direct from Pineapple on line at www.pineapple.uk.com/products/
I love my Pineapple top and cannot believe how long it has lasted or that they are still in fashion!
I cannot offer any more than 5 stars for the reasons given above!
Thank you for reading
I bought this Pineapple top as a present for my sister because i have a few items of clothing by them and always liked the fit and design.I ordered the top in the dark blue and pink colour, and when it arrived was a bit surprised when it was nothing like the colour in the picture and was unmistakeably purple!
I was all for sending it back but still, it was a present for my sister so showed it to her and she preferred it purple.Lucky!
The top is a "off the shoulder" design with long sleeves, and a "Pineaplle" logo across the front in a soft "felty" material.
I liked the way it sits on your shoulders, i was worried it would be falling down all the time but it doesnt.Its just the right lengh to be worn with a pair of leggings and but i found it did ride up a bit when walking so id advise getting a size bigger!
Its nice fabric and is soft and warm inside, i wore it on quite a cold day and didnt need to wear a jacket over the top.
The top did shrink a bit after it had been washed as pretty much any new clothes do, but its strechy material and still fitted fine after plenty of washes.
I think it was pretty good value for money at £30 as it would do as just a top or a jumper, you could wear it with leggings or jeans and its lovely and warm.
Overall, i think this top is a nice design and has a lovely fit, although i would say be careful which colour you pick as it might not look like you expect!
