This is truly an ESSENTIAL part of any woman's wardrobe. This top goes beyond got to have and is a MUST have. Comfy, flowy and flattering - no cling or boxy shape. The La'Rue Essential tops are made to flatter your figure and make you feel beautiful. The sleeves are meant to be fitted so they are snug but the body of the Essentials runs really big - size a whole size down when ordering. Becka wears a small and she's an XL (with tiny arms). With so many options - short/tunic, short sleeve or long sleeve, even petite, there's one for everyone! Get yours now - you won't be sorry, and you'll be back for more!

This shirt is so incredibly soft!! I have a very hard time finding shirts long enough for me to wear with leggings that aren't actually dresses and this one is perfect. My only *complaint* is the sleeves are tight...I can't really complain too much because I knew that was an issue I read about a lot before I ordered. I actually wonder why this issue hasn't been changed since so many people comment on it?? I'm glad I didn't ordered a size bigger to compensate for the tight arms because is rather have my arms a bit uncomfortable than look like I'm wearing a big sack haha but given the arms I will probably order more Maddie tops instead

My sister and best friend have been #KLRaddicts for months now. I adore everything u have to offer but just haven't been able to make my first purchase. When u ran the 12 days of giveaways I couldn't put it off any longer and got myself this Long Sleeve Essential Tunic. Then I got another in mocha for Christmas! I could not be happier with my purchase. I was afraid it would either be too clingy and unflattering or too boxy. But this tunic is to die for and I can't wait to collect them all! I'm a medium-large in most department store tops and have a hard time finding flattering tops. This is just so perfect in a Medium for me! I could probably do a small if the arms weren't so tight fitting. I just love love love it and am so happy with my purchase! Thank you for this amazing piece!

Omg. Love this tunic. I finally ordered one....by far one of my favorite purchases (and I'm a klr addict). I made my mom try it on and she loved it too. It was cozy on my road trip and didn't wrinkle much. Love this!!!!

This was my first La Rue Essential tunic. I absolutely love it. I usually wear about a 16, I ordered the large... possibly could've gotten away with medium but not sure the arms on a medium would fit. It goes great with leggings and boots and hides all those trouble areas. It is definitely a must have and I will be ordering more colors soon!!!

I ordered the La'Rue essential tunic in black. This was my 2nd order in 2 weeks and once again your customer service did not disappoint!! I ordered my tunic in size small. The arms were a bit tight..but otherwise I love top!! I paired it with leggings, a cropped denim jacket and a scarf and received compliments all night!! The jacket covered the arms which were tight..but after a little wear they did loosen up. I will be ordering more colors a.s.a.p in a medium. I ordered on Saturday and received my tunic on Tuesday...best customer service around!!!

I love this top! I am 5'6", 175 lbs at seven months pregnant with a HUGE third-baby belly, and this top actually makes me feel tiny! I never imagined it was going to be as soft as it actually is. I wish all of my nightgowns were as soft as the pikos!

I have always wanted to purchase a Piko but had my doubts. I'm just shy of 6 feet tall, a 38DDD bust, anywhere from a large-XXL top and size 18 pant. Most "boutique" type clothing is a bust for me because of size and stature... But, last week I bit the bullet and purchased the Piko tunic in black and in true teal, both size large. Oh. My. GOSH! I'm in LOVE!!! The material is soooo soft, like, want-to-wear-it-every-day soft. With my height, the tunic/dress length is perfect with leggings and a fun scarf. The only downside is that it is ever so slightly tight in the arms which I am so not concerned about. I'm a believer in the Piko FOR SURE!

This was my first piko and now I know what the fuss is all about! Holy comfy and soft tunic Batman! I AM IN LOVE!!! Seriously, I almost slept in the darn thing last night!
I bought the tunic because I wanted to pair it with leggings (more specifically the AA Cheetah leggings in gray) and it was absolutely PERFECT!!! I am 5'2 and 135 lbs and ordered the small. It fit just how I expected--loose and flowy and hit me about mid-thigh. It looked fabulous with my leggings and black boots! I felt so stylish and pretty in it!
Now the only problem is......which color should I order next?!?!
THANK YOU KLR for your outstanding product and service as usual (this order made me an KLR Loyal! WOOHOO!)

I absolutely positively love this dress!!!!:))

This dress is amazing. It's super soft and comfortable, yet it still looks put together. This is the perfect length for me, so I don't have to wear tights. I'm 5'2", about 115 lbs, and a very petite 0, and the small was perfect! It came to about mid-thigh. The dress is a little boxy, which I expected because it's a tunic, but it looks great with a belt. Great dress, great quality, and amazing customer service to top it all off!

I am a bigger girl (5"7, 200 lbs size 12-14) and I was nervous how this would look. Being super picky I tried to find something wrong with it but I couldn't! It is so soft and so femine and can be worn so many different ways. I grabbed a size M and it is def baggy but hugs all the right areas. Just make sure to wear with leggings because it is short!

I had been waiting for this dress to become available in my size forever! I jumped on the chance of ordering it. I ordered a medium, but probably could've gotten away with a small. This dress is very short (and I'm 5 foot) but would pair perfectly with leggings! :)
(Posted by Unknown on 3rd Mar 2013)
I bought this in black & white to wear as a dress. But it's WAY short!! I'm 5'5 and about 150 I ordered in Medium. I was going to return but I tried them on with leggings and I decided to keep them. They are very comfortable and soft. The Medium is a little big. You can dress these up or down with jewelry.

The softest little number you'll slip on.
I'm 5'3.5 and wore this as a dress, sans leggings. And it was perfect! It is a bit tight in the bum/leg area and I wore it to the office, so I paired it with a longer cardi to cover my rear + tall boots to make my legs seem a little longer.. haha!
Typically I'm a medium and ordered the medium, but next time I'll size up so it won't be as snug in the bum.. and with a Large I wouldn't worry to toss it into the dryer.
It's not tight in the arms like the s/s + l/s piko tops are.. I like that. Great fit all around. I was totally comfortable in this during my 8 hour work day. And my guy sure lovvvved it one me once he saw me wearing it! I wish it came in every color! See a full pic of me in it on my instagram page, @peaceloveterri.

I'm 5'2" and I definitely say leggings need to be worn with this tunic! It's sooo soft! I can dress it up or dress it down!
(Posted by Shelley on 22nd Feb 2013)
I don't just love this item-I LURVE it! As a new mommy who's also nursing, it gives me flexibility in the bust while hiding the little extra tummy that is still hanging on post baby. I'm 5'5" and typically wear a size 6. The small is perfect although I would never wear this without leggings or skinny jeans in fear of having a Marilyn Monroe moment & exposing myself. This is such a versatile piece that I can dress up or down so many different ways! LURVE! :)

This is a great shirt/dress! I say shirt becuase Im 5'4 and kinda have a little junk in my trunk so the back of the dress was a little too short for my comfort..but I rocked it with some leggings! I bought a large and could of gotten a medium. I have chicken legs and arms..but I have a belly so this hid it great!! And by belly.. I mean belly! I wear a 12-14 pants. My only caution would be.. the arms. The arm matierial streches but is tight. Like I said I have chicken arms so it work for me. I had all sort of questions and was scared to buy it but I AM NOT DISAPOINTED!! I kept getting asked..are you losing weight?? It made me feel great!!!

Super soft, super flattering, and super cute! Easy to wear and I always get compliments on it!
(Posted by Sarah on 17th Jan 2013)
Super cute & WAYYY comfy. I'm 5'10" and while I do have a few regular Piko tops, I like my tops a little bit longer for my long torso.... the Piko tunic is awesomesauce. it's great for those days where you don't feel like getting dressed... but this is so super cute that you are dressed. SO many options for it as well.... love love love it... will be buying the white one ASAP!
(Posted by Brandellan Alexander on 10th Jan 2013)
I got my dress today along with my PIKO top and immediately tried it on. I feel like I could gain a few pounds and still look hot in this dress because it's flowy in just the right areas and then fitted in the right areas. Perfect. You could wear this so many ways and with so many other colors and it would look amazing. It's very light weight and silky smooth. I am usually not a small, but definitely get a SMALL if you're usually a medium size 8-10. SIZE DOWN and it will fit perfect. I can't wait to buy more colors!

I have two piko tops and they are juuust a little too short to wear with leggings so I wanted a piko dress. I absolutely love it! Comfortable and very versatile. You can pair with a scarf, belt, long necklace... so many options. I will be wearing it with leggings or tights and boots!
(Posted by Brynn on 9th Jan 2013)
Seriously, I could live in this dress.
It's the best material EVER, and extremely forgiving. Not to mention, they run big, so my normal medium self wears a SMALL ((what a wonderful feeling!)). Even being a size smaller than I normally wear, it is the perfect length. I wear it with leggings and boots, and get compliments every time I have it on!
(Posted by Billie Jo on 8th Jan 2013)
I truly love this dress. When I put it on last night I felt amazing in it. My legs looked tan and might I add..good with this dress on. Can't wait to wear it out and shock my friends....since I am not usually a dress girl!
(Posted by Carrie on 8th Jan 2013)
Just like the piko tops, this tunic is sooo comfy! The material is so soft. Love, love, love!!!
(Posted by Shawna on 2nd Jan 2013)
Honestly, I loved everything about this dress, It was the perfect length, super cute, comfy, and honestly goes with EVERYTHING! One of my favorite purchases from Kiki La'Rue!
(Posted by Laura on 11th Dec 2012)
I am in love. Total and complete love...with a dress. :) Not only can I wear a medium (which makes me happy), but this dress will totally spice up my "living in leggings" live! Comfy, cute, and does NOT make me look pregnant! The only thing that could possibly make it better would be if it came in more colors!!!!
