SIZE: LL SIZE: PoppyHad my eye on this for awhile. The large were all out of stock so went for LL. But the fit is perfect very flattering. Love it

SIZE: Medium SIZE: SangriaThis is my first purchase so I was not sure of size. I am size 12 and 5ft5in and ordered medium in Sangria. It is a perfect fit and although I am a summer (colours done CMB many years ago) I think this is more a winter colour than a summer but I love the fit and the colour and I will be ordering more from Kettlewell in future. Glad I found you.

SIZE: Medium SIZE: PoppySuch a versatile top - wear and mix with other colours under or over.
- Karen (14/04/2022)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: ApricotPerfect layer - but also looks good over a silky polo.
- Karen (14/04/2022)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: PoppyI like a top with less stretch for the very hot weather. This fits the bill perfectly and is 100% organic cotton besides. Cool and comfortable! The Poppy works for this Bright/Clear/Sprinter Winter even though it is not listed as such.
- Jo Ann (11/04/2022)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: HyacinthHave several of these. Most flattering neckline, no gaping armholes, 100% cotton perfect for hot & humid weather. Works well under an open shirt. More colours, please.
- Jane (11/04/2022)
SIZE: Small SIZE: SangriaI've just purchased two Cotton Camilla Tops in small. However, there seems to be a slight discrepancy in size. The Sangria is a perfect fit, with no gaping armholes whereas the Star Blue is about 1/2" longer and bigger on top and therefore not quite bra friendly. I will keep the blue as I live overseas so its not worth the hassle to return. Possibly a little on the pricey side for what it is but Kettlewell items do last and they will be good layering pieces. Both colours are very nice
- Heather (01/04/2022)
SIZE: LL SIZE: Soft WhiteI now have 4 Camilla tops. The fit isn't particularly great on me but I put up with that as I wear them all year round, on their own in the summer and as a vest in the cooler months. I love that they are sleeveless and have a higher neckline They wash and wear very well. I also have this is in Sangria, Deep Lagoon and Indian teal.
- Maria (31/03/2022)
SIZE: LL SIZE: PoppyAs usual, the color is great and I like the style to wear under a jacket. However, I will refrain from buying 100% cotton in the future. It just doesn't have the nice finish that all of the other tops have that include modal, elastane or any other fiber mixed in with the cotton. I am a US size 12 top, 5'7" and have learned that if the fit is semi fitted or fitted, buy an LL. If it is relaxed, buy an L. That works for most items except jackets and I still struggle with sizing on those.
- Ann (30/03/2022)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: SangriaLove this top. Vibrant colour, looks great and fits well.
- Ruth (13/03/2022)
SIZE: LL SIZE: Deep LagoonReally like the quality and colour of this top. Can be worn throughout the year alone or layered. Between L/LL sized up in this case and ideal, no gaping armholes.
- Yvonne (24/11/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: Soft WhiteI love the style of the Camilla top. I wear them on their own in the summer and under jumpers in the winter. I like the high neck and they give a pop of colour. I wear the large in Kettlewell,
- Eileen (26/10/2021)
SIZE: X Small SIZE: Deep LagoonThis sleeveless top works well for office layering with a smart cardigan. Also great with jeans. It doesn't 'gape' under the armpits, which I sometimes have a problem with. Washes well but does need ironed each time. Love the deep lagoon colour.
- Susan B (10/10/2021)
SIZE: LL SIZE: Soft WhiteThe Camilla top is my favorite to wear under wraps and jackets. I love that it is cotton and not clingy. I also love the neckline. I think I have every color for summers. I hope Kettlewell will continue to offer this little winner!!!
- Evangeline (08/10/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: AquariusI like the colour of this Aquarius top but I really dont feel it's worth £29.00,the fabric isnt anything special (Like the wrap top I also received today),I wish I had ordered one of the camisThe medium fits me well ...The only reason I'm keeping it is because there was makeup on it and I cant be sure if It was mine...hence it's in the washing machine already .😕
- Irene (30/09/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: Deep LagoonThis is now my favourite summer top. The style is perfect for a classic gamine, and it somehow looks a little smarter than a conventional tee shirt. I am a high street size 10 for tops, and the small fits perfectly, being fitted but not clingy. It is also the perfect layering piece under wraps and jersey shirts.
- Brenda (25/09/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: SangriaLove these camilla tops, just purchased my third one all in lovely bright colours, they make a great layering top for our changeable weather, nice neat finish, I’m a size 12 and M fits me well. Great Kettlewell quality as always!
- Maria (09/09/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: HyacinthNice top. Hyacinth is very versatile with my mostly Light and Soft colors. I love that this sleeveless top has a crew neckline so that I still feel covered up. I wore with a light loosely crocheted 3/4 sleeve sweater and Capri jeans and sandals as we were at an indoor museum. I got the medium and for reference I am a 34A bra size, 5’6” and 126lbs.
- Cynthia (12/08/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: SangriaFits to size (I am a size 12 and chose medium). Very good quality and lovely colour.
- Penny (11/08/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: SangriaA versatile and beautiful top, great colour and style!
- Inger (11/08/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: PoppyI am so pleased with this top as it is very versatile. When the sun is shining it is great as a sleeveless vest but with a bit more coverage at the neckline, which I like. It is very useful when worn under a jacket or blazer and can look casual or smart. It is a good all round fit and good quality fabric and construction.
- Diana (09/08/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: Star BlueI am a big fan of Kettlewell products. My recent purchase of the Camilla top in blue proves what great products they produce. Good quality cotton, beautiful shade and a boxy style (just sits below my waist) makes this top equally dressy and casual. I’ve had several compliments. Would recommend this company.
- Margaret (09/08/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: Indian TealIndian Teal is a beautiful colour, perfect for me as a summer and a change from blue. I love the quality cotton fabric and it is very comfortable to wear.
- Christine Barnes (09/08/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: SangriaLovely colour, nice weight fabric and feels good on. Very pleased with it, size is pretty accurate too.
- Christine (09/08/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: HyacinthA versatile top, that can be worn alone, or under a top. The top doesn’t gape at the front, or under the arms, and is the usual Kettlewell quality.
- April (09/08/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: SangriaThis is a very useful top, as it can be worn alone, or under a top, such as a blouse. The neckline doesn’t gape, or the under arms, and is the usual Kettlewell quality.
- April (09/08/2021)This is a great concept but would benefit from being double faced at the front. I wear a good quality t shirt bra but nipples still show through!
- Sarah (04/08/2021)
SIZE: LL SIZE: HyacinthAbsolutely love everything about this top - the fit, the neckline, the size of the armhole, the colour. Will definitely be ordering more!
- Mavis (03/08/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: Indian TealI love this top, and wore it out on the evening I received in the post. As advised, I sized up to a Large. I love that this is made of 100% cotton. It looks smart for a sleeveless top. I would buy again in different colour, please could you make in more Autumn colours?
- Clare (24/07/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: SangriaI love this tank! The length is perfect for me , hitting just at the top of my hip. I am 5’4 115# 61yo
- Joanne Hawkins (22/07/2021)
SIZE: X Small SIZE: AquariusI love the shape of this top, great cut and just the right length (most vest tops are too long for me)" I'm a size 8-10, the S was a bit big, the XS is a perfect fit. I'd have bought lots of them if the colour range was better; you need better pinks, blues, and mauves, and a proper white. My favourite is the zesty lime, I've kept the ice pink, I'm going to dye it to a darker bright pink.
- Maggie Pavelin (21/07/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: AquariusLove love love this top! It is a straightforward cotton top which is not clingy but has enough structure to give some shape. As someone who has too much boobage getting a top that does not make me look 'matronly' is always a challenge. Thank you and keep them coming! This is my second one and definitely not my last!
- Mima (19/07/2021)
SIZE: LL SIZE: Star BlueGreat fitting top. I have the LL for my 34G bust. However, like many Kettlewell tops it is too short. I am 5 ft 9 inches and I have kept it because I can just about get away without showing my midriff if I don't lift my arms up. Please make these tops at least 2 inches longer.
- LizB (18/07/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: Star BlueMy favorite top of the season. So much so I bought 6. I live in them. Some people like to size up but I prefer my usual size. Tucked in or left out, this is one of those magical tops which can be styled many ways for a multitude of looks. I even wear them under dress blazers. (Which is especially nice during the hot summer months). This top when left untucked does not make me look bottom heavy like the Pippa. When tucked in, there is just enough structure which gives a beautiful neat blouson effect. I wear them all the time with the weekend skirts this way. It is a very comfortable but pretty look. If I have to step out I will put on a belt and a Florence scarf which immediately elevates the look. It's a winner. These tops are so important in my wardrobe I almost feel like buying backups!
- Melissa (16/07/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: HyacinthLovely top not too long at 22.5 inches (from back neck nape) for under 5ft.3in. size 12 but it would be nice to also have an even shorter boxy top for short waisted people with middle aged spread. Lovely hyacinth colour goes well with heliotrope tie wrap and white hair!
- Judi (17/06/2021)
SIZE: X Small SIZE: Deep LagoonThis is a great little top. The neckline is more flattering than a crew neck. I am 8/10 and tried XS and S. Small looked nothing special but XS was the neat boxy fit I wanted. Looking at other reviews, sizing down is unusual, you can only get away with this if small busted. Length hides my belt unlike the model. Just long enough to tuck in if desired but this is not the intended style. Deep lagoon is amazing of course!
- Tracey (15/06/2021)
SIZE: PoppyIt’s good quality and a beautiful colour
- Linda (15/06/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: SangriaLovely top, I’m a size 10 but bought the small, and it fits perfectly. Falls nicely , no slinging but gives a good shape, and looks good with shorts or perhaps linen trousers. Would Definitely recommend. My only negative was I think these are slightly expensive for the product.
- Heather (01/06/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: HyacinthReally lovely top. Excellent quality and fit, (I followed the sizing guide )and a perfect length. Love the colour. Just the perfect top to go with anything, dressed up or down. Very prompt delivery .
- Sheila (27/05/2021)
SIZE: X Small SIZE: AquariusI love these tops! They are a loose fit, so I size down to an XS. I find that they are perfect under the Verona Fitted Cardigan. I bought 2 last year and liked them so much that I purchased 3 more this year in Aquarius, Sangria and Pink Ice. I really hope that KW will bring back this top next season in icy lavender and bright white for winters.
- KH (14/05/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: MoleI actually bought all the colors in my season (autumn), because it's just that good. I'm a UK busty 8-10, and I wear either a M or an L in Kettlewell tops. In this top I'm wearing an M. The fit is very much like the Multi-stripe Breton (only sleeveless). The fabric is a nice T-shirt cotton, medium weight. I really like that I can have a top from Kettlewell to wear in the summer that is not cut so low that I have to wear a cami underneath (too hot for summer in the NY metro area).
- Marilyn (07/05/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: HyacinthLovely top and colour, and nice material. Size was loose fit, (The style is not a tight fitting one). Lovely for hot summery days and skimming any bumps.
- Barbara (07/05/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: HyacinthNot worn yet, as weather is refusing to warm up! Good fit, close but not too close and with a higher neckline which suits me for teaching yoga. Length not too long and doesn't ride up too much in forward bends. Love the colour too!
- Penny (04/05/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: MoleThe Camilla is a dream-come-true for me. Its style and material are so neat and forgiving. I am size 14 (34DD) with short waist and a chunky middle. The fitted tops, which look so lovely on the models, do nothing for me. But this top, with its boxy shape, is perfect. I am usually size L in Kettlewell and the L fits perfectly. It is also the perfect length as so many of the other tops are too long. Mole is very flattering to me as an auburn-haired Autumn and looks great teamed with stone canvas skirts, shorts etc. So comfortable, so flattering. I love it.
- Kay (30/04/2021)Love the colour fit and fabric. So easy to wear on its own or as layering
- Helen (30/04/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: AquariusFab flattering shape, comes up slightly large. Good thick T-Shirt weight, feels decent quality.
- Mary Lu (30/04/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: Soft WhiteVery useful top for layering. Particularly liked fact that it was 100% cotton.
- Jane (29/04/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: SangriaBought a few of these in various colours in Medium. Neckline’s flattering, not cut as low as many of Kettlewell’s tops. A little baggy under the arms for me but they’re intended to be worn primarily under linen shirts so it doesn’t matter, and I prefer a looser fit in hot weather. Haven’t actually worn them yet, waiting for said hot weather!
- Jane (28/04/2021)
SIZE: LLBeautiful top, well.made in good quality cotton and with arm holes that cover underwear. Very flattering, and I think it will retain its shape well as it is very well made. Delighted with purchase, I bought it in different colours! It seemed more expensive than others in a similar style, but such good quality and more choice of colours, so not expensive. Such a good fit, I tried 2 sizes in each colour, as L and LL covered the sizes I wanted to try as I am about a 16, and LL was perfect. I would love these in a longer tunic length as I am tall, about 72cm would be ideal.
- Jennifer (28/04/2021)
SIZE: LL SIZE: Deep LagoonI purchased an L and a LL in deep lagoon. The color is amazing; rather close to true teal, but a touch more green. The boat neck is flattering and the cut is modest. The hemline is rather short though, but I do have a long torso. No french tuck for me.
- Danielle (25/04/2021)
SIZE: MediumI am so delighted with this top! Beautiful soft cotton fabric and Aquarius is a stunning colour. I also ordered Hyacinth which is lovely if on the cool side for me. A cream necklace or wrap warmed the colour up enough though. The top meets all the practical needs ie doesn’t cling around the midriff, covers bra straps and is the correct length for jeans or skirts. I am a 10-12 and have found medium to be perfect for me. More spring colours please!
- Mary-Jane (20/04/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: MoleA lovely little top, perfect for wearing under a cardi. I'm 8-10, 5'2", and got the S, which fits perfectly. I bought the mole, which I have discovered since finding Kettlewell. I would never have picked this colour off the rails, but it turns out it's one of my best colours. This top puts it up near my face. It's amazing how you can learn to love your colours, even if you originally didn't like them, when you see what they do for you! I'm now feeling temptation to send for the two greens!
- LindaM (18/04/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: HyacinthReally nice fabric and a beautiful, simple style. I saw that it was a relaxed fit and made the mistake of ordering a size down, and sadly it's too small. Order your usual size and you will love it. I have reordered in the correct size in several different colours!
- Sally (18/04/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: HyacinthI really, really wanted to love this top. The fabric is beautiful and so is the colour. However, it feels way too tight under the arms. I usually wear size XS/S in KW, depending on the style and I ordered both to try. The size S fitted perfectly well in every other aspect but, as this is a boxy style, sizing up to M is not an option for my petite frame. Returned, sadly.
- Sheila (13/04/2021)
SIZE: Large SIZE: Soft WhiteI had to write a review to say how much I like this top. i am 72 and don't usually buy many sleeveless tops as I feel nervous about showing my arms. However this top is so elegant that although I would often wear a cropped cardigan on top I would be happy to wear it without an additional layer in hot weather. I am 14 on top with a narrow back and 34E bust so bought the large. It is just perfect not too loose and not too fitted. I agree with the product description that the soft white has quite a warm tone which is fine for me as I am light/soft/warm. overall I am very pleased.
- Linda (10/04/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: Zesty LimeTook delivery of my order today. I ordered both zesty lime and hyacinth. The sizing was right for me. Length just below the waist, loose but not baggy. I loved both the colours. This will be very useful for the summer on its own and under light layers. The price was a bit more than I would normally want to pay, that said the quality is lovely and the cotton soft to the touch. If there were more colours I would be very tempted to purchase again. I am very happy with my purchases and they more than met expectation. Thank you.
- Sallie (09/04/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: Soft WhiteAs near perfect as you can get. I have spent years (literally) looking for a little top such as this one. The boat neck and wider shoulders of this neat little top are perfect for wearing on its own or under a jacket and above all else, even the soft white isn't see through. It doesn't cling at all but skims over bumpy bits. Only question mark is I'm not sure soft white is exactly what I would have called it - maybe light cream but that may just be the light on this gloomy day. I am a size 12 and the medium is perfect.
- Lindy (09/04/2021)
SIZE: Medium SIZE: Zesty LimeThis is such a "me" top! Not tight ,not loose, nice high neck ,wide shoulder straps ,perfect length. I really love it .10 out of 10 from me me .As a 14 generally go for L in Kettlewell tops but sized down to M in this as it has a relaxed fit and its perfect on me. my only slight criticism is that the the armhole is quite high/snug, I could do with it being half a cm wider all round, but at is a small niggle, I still love this top.
- LS (09/04/2021)
SIZE: Small SIZE: Deep LagoonJust received this and I love it - can't wait to wear it. I'm size 10 and ordered a small - perfect fit! Neat round neck and fits well under the armholes with no bra on show - perfect details as I'm in my 60s and have to return so many tops for this reason. Cotton feels good quality and I'm hoping it will wash well without shrinkage - seems like it will. Please, please do it in more colours (Autumns, please!) as I'd love to buy a few more. How about a khaki, mustard and an orange for starters?
