Bought 4 of these tops. Two with full length sleeves and two 3/4 sleeves. Worn each one once. Washed them in cold water. Now they have all changed shape and size and one has started to come apart on a sleeve seam. So disappointing as previous sailor tops I’ve bought in store were far superior in quality. These four have been packaged up for return and refund. Sadly now won’t be ordering any more until the quality is back to where it used to be. Not the usual excellent quality expected of Seasalt.

I bought two of these tops thinking they would be the same as last year.
The material does not seem as good a quality as last year (very thin). Also I did get a smaller size because last year's were very roomy. Luckily I have lost a bit of weight because the new ones are very snug.

Dear marie,
Thanks for your review of the Sailor top; in our experience, we have noted that dye colours can influence the weight and hand feel of the fabric as well as washing and surface texture. Older garments may feel thicker over time as the fibres fluff up making it feel fuller, dark colours are often heavier.
If you’d like to discuss further please call our friendly customer service team on 01326 640075 or pop onto Live Chat on our website at

Best wishes, Seasalt.

Sailor shirt

Having seen reviews below, I realise I’m not the only one whose sailor shirts have developed lots of small holes on the front, at the waist. When it first happened, I thought it was caused by my belt, so stopped wearing one. Now all three sailor shirts have the same problem. I am trying to stitch the holes before they become any bigger, not easy to do discreetly. I love my shirts and am SOOOO disappointed! I expected better quality fabric.

Sailor shirt

I've just seen a review by Betsyali saying that little holes appeared in her shirt; I've had exactly the same thing! I thought perhaps it was something to do with my washing machine but I've never had that problem before or since. Such a shame as it's such a lovely top!

Different fit from the other striped top - shoulders too wide, hips too narrow.

Nice top but an odd fit

Too tight on the arms and too baggy on the body. Good quality fabric and nice colour but I think I'll return to my Boden stripy top.

Really wanted to like this but...

The fabric was nice and thick and I really wanted this to fit but the shoulders were too wide and the body a bit too fitted for comfort. I've not had this problem before in tops and was a little surprised at how large the shoulders were in the size. Had to return.

I felt rather like a flag

I love Breton tops and ordered this one. However, the fabric was not as thick as other similar tops and my usual size 18 was a bit tight and a bit too short. I ordered it in duet bucket paddle and did feel it was a little too much like wearing a Union Jack. Had to be returned.

Longline Sailor tops

Please make thes sailor tops longer - 78cms shoulder to hem. They are too short for me! They would. be so flattering.

Very disappointed

I’ve got several striped Seasalt tops and love them. This one had to go back as it was far too tight. I was very disappointed as I had bought it, with the wide blue trousers, for a specific event . The trousers were so big I could put them in without undoing them!!
