'Hides the belly weight': Amazon slashed the price of this mega-popular top to $19 for Labor Day

What is it?

It may be Labor Day Weekend, but the days can still get a little too hot. We feel you. So we've put some thought into it and found the perfect top that's lightweight, flattering and bound to elicit compliments at all of your late-summer festivities. And we think we’ve found one you’ll like: the short-sleeve Dolman Top from Made by Johnny — and it’s on sale!

This top is made with a blend of soft and stretchy rayon, modal and spandex. It comes in a round or V-neck option with 45 colors to choose from.

Why is it a good deal?

That's right, Amazon slashed the price down to $19 from $25 — meaning it's 25% off. And with 45 colors available, you can pick up several to match any outfit in your closet. Or give them as gifts!

Why do I need this?

Royal blue is still a hot color, so if you’re on the hunt for a royal blue blouse, you have two options with this top: there’s a V-neck version and one with a round neck. If blue is not your thing, you still have quite a selection to ponder.

And thanks to the rayon, modal and spandex this top is made with, it is soft, stretchy and drapey. Together, that makes for a forgiving top you can wear anywhere. In addition to the soft fabric, the ruching on each side adds to the flattering style — the cloth is gathered along the seams to create cute folds that drape over potential problem areas.

What the reviewers say:

Amazon shoppers are a savvy bunch — more than 36,000 have given this top a five-star review. “It's very comfortable and breathable,” shared a happy shopper. “I recently had a botched tummy tuck and I'm left with a prominent pooch on my lower abdomen, and this top disguised it well with the ruching.”

“Not too tight around the back to where your rolls can be seen,” reported another rave reviewer. “The side shirring gives it a little more flattering fit. I liked it so much I bought a second one in a different color and gave it as a gift to a friend.”

"I now own seven of these tops!" shared an excited five-star fan. "I sized up to a large (my regular size in tops is a medium) which gives it a little more draping near the belly area and hides the belly weight. The ruching around the hips lays really nicely. I've worn them with jeans, linen wide leg pants, dress pants, black leggings and shorts, and they look good with all."

The cut on this blouse is a bit longer than other tops, but it’s not quite tunic-length. However, that’s a feature some shoppers say is great for, shall we say, coverage.

“I am bottom heavy and the shirt had the length I wanted without rolling,” shared a savvy shopper. “I have purchased several colors to switch out outfits for work.”

“I love this shirt! It's a really cute top that fits true to size,” a satisfied shopper shared. “I'm 5'7" and most cute tops are way too short for me, this one fits perfectly without my belly hanging out from under it. I like the fact you can wear it during the day casually or dress it up for a night out.”

You can never go wrong with classic black — especially in a flirty, flattering piece like this.
