Karmady Long Sleeve
save your $ and skip this (as cute as it may be)
I bought this in plum and after 1x wearing it, I had pilling underneath the armpit and down the side of the top. I kept my receipt and luckily had the tag, but when I went to return it at the store was told that there "was no recall on the item and therefore it has not been deemed defective" so they refused to return it. Come on lulu, I've spent TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS over the last 5 years and this is the treatment I receive when I have a substandard item?????

so much potential
Had to have this top the second I spotted it. I adore the length, tight fit, high neckline, and it came in plum! Perfection... until I took it off after wearing it one time (only siting in an office) and realized it had pilled all over my underarms. This was my first lulu purchase that I've been completely disappointed in.

Heartbreaker! Beautiful top....but it pills!
I should've known better! I have a burn out top from the summer that pilled horribly, but I loved this top so much I wanted to give it a try. It did not disappoint -- absolutely beautiful, but after one wearing around the house - pilling. I didn't even really get to put it to the test! WHAT A BUMMER! I give 2 stars for a great first impression, but just can't recommend this top.

Where is the love??
I have worn this top to and from the gym a few times now and always get compliments. The fit is great and it is so stylish that I will definitely pair it with leggings and a cami. The way the neck lies is really sexy and I love the hood.
I haven't experienced any pilling. Just a great top.

Love the fit --- hate the piling :(
This could have been a 5 start review....HOWEVER, just like the other reviews here, I wore the shirt and within the first hour or 2 there is now a significant amount of piling under the arms. Huge disappointment considering the cost of this top. There is some piling on the front of the shirt as well, but it is not AS noticable. All this during the first wear... This shirt could have been a favorite piece in my closet. Its a great piece to throw on for running errands and for teaching classes....its a little a the sheer side, but I actually like the overall feel and weight of the material. Literally the only problem I have with this is the fact that with my first wear, the piling under the arms is too much. So the three stars is for the design and fit, but couldn't reach the excellent point due to the overall quality.

Pilling, pilling, pilling!
I love long light weight shirts so I got these in all 3 colors. Within hours wearing the black shirt I noticed pilling under the arms. Not just a bit of pilling, this is fabric shaver pilling and it is ugly.
I wanted to give this shirt a break, hoping it was just the black that pilled, but the plum colored top pilled as well. Didn't even try the white one.
Unfortunately I tossed the tags.
I feel really dumb that I bought 3 of these at this price!
Seriously, the quality is horrible. I keep trying to give Lulu a break, but Fool Me Once, Shame On You... Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me.
I can get better quality at The Gap.

Great style, pilling mess!
Love, love, love the style and feel of this top! Pilling under the arms within my first hour of wearing on a walk with my dog. Unlike thighs, everyone's arms rub against their body- so if pilling bugs you stay away from this top!

After reading the other reviews for this shirt I am relieved I am not the only person experiencing piling. I purchased this shirt in plum and within an hour and a half of wearing it for the first time I noticed a considerable amount of piling under both arms. Given the color of the shirt it was really noticeable. Given the price I expected a higher quality product.

Would give ZERO stars if I could
I was excited to get this and thought it would be a nice layer for a road trip. In a five hour drive, I got pilling where the seat belt went!! Then I looked under my arms and saw pilling as well. All I did was sit there, I was not squirmy?? My question is, was the fabric even tested?
This is being sent back, obviously. I have purchased a tissue tee of better quality for a fifth the price of this. How disappointing!

I have to completely agree with the other review: I have been wearing my karmady for the first time today , and noticed severe piling under the arms already! For a $78 see-through top, it certainly should not show piling after ONE wear!!! I have been purchasing lulu for many years now, and have quite the collection of items;however, lately the quality has been AWEFUL with many items that I purchased!! Will not be buying anything anymore...all set after these quality issues!!!
