Rated 2 out of 5 by Beth34 Material top edge in back was way too small.
This top would have been a keeper if the band around the back (not the inner bra band, but the outer layer material) wasn't too tight. Odd, since the inner bra band fit great in a 36DD, with room to spare. That the outer top edging in back was much smaller than the inner band makes me think there was an error in assembly. Perhaps the 32 outer material got switched with the 36DD inner bra part? I had to send it back because there was too much of a discrepancy in size and it pinched my back painfully. I only buy these if on sale and have to guess at sizing, as the different styles (perfect fit vs sports cami) differ in how they fit. Sports cami fit is much better around the back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DeaconsMom Poor quality, but great service
I am disappointed with the quality of these bra-top camisoles, which I have grown to love over the years. I hope Norm Thompson will return to a higher quality, better-designed product. I did, however, receive excellent customer service when I emailed them a complaint and they refunded my shipping to return the poor-quality camisoles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cyninoregon Why End Perfection?
Last year or two the sizing got messed up--I kept them because I'd gained weight and have to lose it, so then they will fit. Other than that, everyone will tell you that these are the best camis available anywhere, any time!! If you had my size, I'd buy all you have to wear forever.
The high neck on these looks nothing like the models when I wear it--as a DD, the neckline is 2- 3" lower than that, right at the top of my cleavage. My chest gets cold in those awful low-cut ones and I feel awful.... And the cami is form fitting--just as I want it under cardigan sweaters, cotton hoodies, etc-- I love the cotton spandex mix--at least the thicker ones. There were a few thinner, flimsy ones--which the updated is times 10....don't repeat that, instead remake the pink, white, navy, brown, kiwi fabric thickness....they are beautiful, handwash like new, and are perfect year round.
The bras on these old design camis are wonderful--they hold you in, you can be as active as you want, or sleep in them because they are that comfy too. I am more comfortable with one on than not.
But nearly 900 reviews recommending this product was not good enough--you had to change it. And since some said this was too tight lately, you made the "updated" (which are anything but--instead they are cheap, flimsy, sagging, horrific disasters with floating foam cups as nipple covers) camis 6" wider across the back! That's not what anyone meant by too tight...2" would have been more than enough--or just get out your old original measurements and make the manufacturer go back to them!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring this cami back! It's the only thing I buy from you--and I buy a lot. All my wardrobe is built around them. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LynnWPB Would have ordered a size larger
Bra was very tight despite ordering my usual size. First cami had underwire sticking through the fabric but they sent a replacement

Rated 3 out of 5 by YoungRabbit Two sizes; both way too small
While I love the high coverage of the cami, it ran exceedingly small, even when ordering two different sizes at the same time. Also, I would greatly have appreciated not having a bra (especially with underwire as it tends to be uncomfortable and often pokes through whatever constitutes the material).

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewToNorm Pretty and practical
I bought this in French Blue and Red. The fit is fine and it has a nice smooth look to it. However, I personally didn't like the red - it was brighter than it looked online; it's really almost a coral. The French Blue is lovely, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ldj525 Full-coverage Perfect Fit Cami
I have been ordering these for a couple of years. I am short waisted so, the high neckline suits me. I also LOVE the built in, underwire, bra. I have them in many colors. I have always ordered one bra size (both cup and band) larger than what I wear because they do run small. BUT the last time I ordered, a black and white one, because I wear those colors the most, they were even SMALLER. To the company: please be consistent with sizing. This is a great top. Another suggestion. Make them longer. After one washing they shrink up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by flygirlwu NICE BUT ORDER 1 SIZE UP
I have one of these tops from years ago & wanted to buy some new ones b/c I liked the old one so much. The old one was a 36B, which is my normal bra size, and it fit comfortably; the body was draped perfectly w/o being too tight.
I am the same size now, so I ordered these new ones in size 36B, but they were so tight, I could barely close the hooks, and the body was super skin-tight. Clearly, the cut of the cami has changed to be much, much skinnier. So annoying. I returned them for one band size up -- 38B.
The 38B *fits* although the band is still a little snug. But at least the body material just skims my torso. I don't want to order another size up b/c I'm afraid that if I were to order a 40B, the top would start to gap around the armholes and neck.
So, I'm pretty satisfied. I do like the tops and have been wearing them, but I wish Norm Thompson hadn't changed the cut & sizing. I would recommend this top to others b/c it's hard to find a good underwire cami.
