Women’s Early Tide™ Tunic is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for hot weather It's a little thinner fabric than I thought, but it's great for hot weather. It's a little wrinkly and may need ironing. If found the sleeves a little tight when buttoned, but love the neck line and style!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tunic has wonderful coverage This tunic runs true to size. I’m enjoying the three quarter length sleeves that are adjustable. It will be perfect weight for fall or spring. Love the color, may have to get the grey one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great fabric and style I swim a lot so a lot of tops are too tight in shoulder area. As this is. So the medium did not work and the large was too big all around. Would love to be able to wear this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt for travel Nice, lightweight shirt that looks dressy enough to wear to dinner or a movie. Look forward to more shirts light this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The blouse is so comfortable This tunic/blouse is very comfortable. The fabric is soft and feels good against the skin. Really like the details in the back. When I wash it I hang it to dry and the back pleat falls right back into place so there is no need for ironing. Received several compliments from people, even my daughter, who is very selective.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and cute I'm 5'4", 125lbs, 34B and the small fit perfectly. The material is light and wicking and it looks nice! The back is a little different/weird, but I also like that it's unique.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute style I loved the way this looked online and also in person. I really liked the style but realized that I probably wouldn't wear it that often. My need for practicality won over and I hemmed it to make it into a blouse. It's a win, win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel This blouse looks feminine and lets you stay cool in hot outdoor activities. The cotton is very thin, but the blue floral print is not revealing and does not need a cami. The fabric dries overnight so is great if you need to wash it out in a hotel sink when traveling. But be sure to pin the back pleat when you hang it to dry so it doesn't poof out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ever-So-Soft Cotton Tunic! I purchased the WOMEN’S EARLY TIDE™ TUNIC in the white floral print. This tunic is very lightweight. Therefore, it requires a camisole. The floral print displays as a pale grey. The fabric does wrinkle, but it's worth the trade-off for an ever-so-soft cotton tunic. The WOMEN’S EARLY TIDE™ TUNIC can be worn with shorts or gussied-up with jewels and a scarf for evening wear. That's why this tunic is a favorite traveling companion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect to throw over leggings Was looking for a cool, comfortable top to pair with leggings for my bike commute. I wore cami/tank and was good to go. It's the perfect length. The back pleat is a bit funky, I'd rather it not have one, but otherwise a really great comfy top that can hold up to outdoor activities but also wear to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite top! Fits beautifully, great cut, no straining across the shoulders when I move my arms. Lightweight, but not too sheer. Washes great and should pack well. Perfect length to cover tummy and hips. I bought one in each color available!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very sheer but cute This is cute but completely see through. Good with a Cami of matching color beneath in summer. Which wasn't really what I was looking for. I wear a 8 medium and it's a bit large

Rated 2 out of 5 by from nice design I read all the reviews before purchasing, several mentioned running large and my past experience has been that Col. Sportswear does run a little bigger than some other lines. Ordered on a Sun. and it arrived on Tues, couldn't wait to try it on but was disappointed with the fit. I was expecting a better fabric too, little flimsy for me. Sorry but I had to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute travel tunic I can't rate function on this top because I haven't technically worn it yet. I tried it on and it's darling. Very lightweight, almost see through but not, and perfect for the tropical climate we're headed to. Seemed to be well made but with the light material, difficult to tell until you put it on/off several times. Will know better in a month. I was iffy at first on it when I saw it online but once I got it in hand, loved it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I was hoping for I ordered this tunic in blue XL. It is wayyy too big and the back pleat is funky. I like the length, but it looks like I'm wearing a bedsheet. Its a little thin, but it is soft. Unfortunately this ones going back...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so soft! Got compliments on the color right away (bought the pink one). The cotton material is so soft and light fit is very comfortable. Is a tiny bit see through. I am tall and somewhat broad across the shoulders (but not big breasted) and it doesn't tug when I reach my arms forward. I am a medium and bought medium and it fits perfectly. Went and bought 2 other colors. Washed and dried it and it didn't shrink nor did I have to iron it. Great shirt Columbia -
