      Pleat Back Short Sleeve Shell Top is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 28.
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it - try wearing it back to front! This is the slightly heavier weight shell top I have been searching for. Yes, the neck at the front takes a bit of getting used to but consider trying it on back to front! I am busty and just tried it on backwards to see if it would work and, due to no darts at the bust line, it works. So, I have a smart/casual top I can wear 4 ways - as a loose top over trousers or jeans or a work skirt, either plain at the front or pleated at the front AND it looks fab as a tucked in top with a colourful belt either way round too! It is a little wide on the shoulders but that I can forgive for such a useful work to play too. Well done M&S.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleat Back Top I saw this top for the first time in the York store, but bought online as the store did not have my size. I find the style interesting and just a little bit different, the back really is lovely. My own size was a perfect fit, and the length was good, sitting just below my hip bone. For me, there was just too much going on at the neck, zip, hook and eye fastening, almost choked myself trying to fasten this, and then the cut away piece of fabric. Just a bit too fussy. I also felt this is perhaps the wrong time of year for this particular style of top as the fabric is quite heavy. Sadly I returned the item today.

      Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Design Bought in size 22 and i am 5'8". The quality and design of Autograph has deteriorated that I grasp at any tops that even a hint at former glory. Although not a fan of black I bought this top as the back is stunning unfortunately the overall design is poor. The front has the appearance of a Nuns Habit with a rather strange crew neck which is only attached at the sides and does not sit properly until the weight of the volume of material at the rear pulls the neckline back garrotting you in the process and causing the hem to dip at the rear. The fabric is too heavy for the design, shame.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great top Full marks again for this beautiful top. The material hangs well especially the multi coloured back pleating which is really effective and gives a very high end look. The top closes with a zip on the shoulder and two small hook and eye fasteners for the choker effect neck which sits nice and snug on my neck. I found this true to size. I would recommend this top.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal, if you like something different I ordered this top initially in my usual size, not paying enough attention to the description & I felt it looked way too baggy on me, so I ordered two sizes below my usual size - I found one size smaller fitted really nice round the neckline but still too loose on the body and two sizes smaller fitted nicely on the body but is more snug round the neck. I ended up opting for the two sizes smaller. I love the colour block pleat detail at the back and the neckline detail is really nice too - I'm always on the lookout for something different and this definitely fits the bill, but did find the sizing and fit a little strange for me. Can't wait to wear it though - thanks M&S! : )

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design Loved the design and material of this top but have to agree with some other reviews, the fastening on the neck was ill thought out as you need to be contortionist to fasten the hooks!. The back of the top seems too heavy and pulls the whole top backwards making the neckline at the front ride up - sent it back.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from pleat back top Although I had no problem with the neckline unlike some other reviewers, I found that the top stuck out too much at the front from the bustline and was not flattering. The pleat detail is lovely, as are the colours, but the plain black front looked rather 'flat' or dull on me. Had to be returned, sadly, as I had high hopes for it initially,

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's all about the back! Very plain top but the detailing on the back is gorgeous. My only complaint is with M&S not sending me an email to tell me the item had arrived in store, just by chance I asked at collections the following day and my top had arrived.
