GAP Linen Top

Last year I found a black linen top from GAP that I wore the rest of the Summer. I’ve been looking for the same type of blouse in other colors since then. GAP has filled the need again with a Linen Top in various colors. Since none of the 4 stores in my area had my size, I went ahead and took a chance and ordered every color offered.

~ Linen Top, Fire Sky, Medium ~

It looks like the Medium fits in these pics but the arms were a little tight. When I moved my arms the shirt was a snug across the chest or back, depending on how I moved. And when I took this off, it was a bit of a struggle pulling it over my head. These are 100% Linen so there will be immediately wrinkling when you put on the shirt. I liked the bright orange of the Fire Sky color. 

~ Cargo Khaki, True Indigo, White, Fire Sky, Faded Black ~
I actually have a white linen top from Zara that I bought last year and again this year in a larger size as a back-up.  I could have dealt with the slightly snug fit if I didn’t have to struggle getting it off. If I would lose a little weight these would have fit just fine but if I buy something now I want it to fit for the size and fit I am now. Had these fit I would have kept all colors except the Cargo Khaki and White, since I have two of that color.

Have you tried the Gap Linen Top? Despite the wrinkles, I find Linen so comfortable and easy to wear in the Summer.

    My interest over this top was picked after someone posted positive comments @ jc aficionada.. Reviews @ Gap site were all over and I ended up ordering my regular size, but in Tall as I wanted it to fit a little longer than going for the boxy/short fit.. Much as you, found them to be snug in places so went back and ordered a size bigger, still in Tall as I wanted the longer look. Kept both colors ordered & happy with my purchase. Found the linen to be same quality as JC linen shirts.

    Nan – Thanks for the suggestion. I'm glad that the larger size worked out. I worry that it will look too big on me through the body. Hope that's not the case for you.
