IMO they are very similar, but def. not the same. Or the pictures are photoshopped differently.

Start from the bottom up and you can definitely see that it's the same. It's the lighting plus the first model wearing white underneath that makes it look different. Plus the top model is posed differently and is a bit fuller.

It's the exact same top.

Yep, I'm in the "same top" camp. Just differnent lighting, models, and what the model is wearing "underneath" that differs.

How are those linen beach pants working out for you? I keep coming back to them, but haven't pulled the trigger. I want to buy 3 pairs, but I don't need anymore pants.
Hahahaha, right? Who styled that shoot and approved that photo?

I love my linen pants! I'd love them even more if I had a defined waist. Like with all pants, the fit is better when there is some tapering there.

There is a difference between those two sweaters. You can see it across the breast. The white band there is solid, irrespective of the white bra underneath in the first pic. That may or may not be due to photo manipulation. Again, regardless, the sweater is not of the quality I was expecting, but it'll do because I haven't found anything that is more representative of what I was looking for.

I'm wearing the sweater right now, and the sleeves barely reach my elbows without being scrunched up. And, I'm wearing the largest size because I wanted something slouchy and beachy.

Are you talking about the white bikini top she's wearing beneath the shirt?

Yeah I thought they were slightly different too, because looks like a closer knit over the bust in the first picture but if you look carefully you can see it is actually the white bikini underneath making it appear that way.

The second pic it is more rumpled like needs an iron lol and the way the second girl is standing raises the neckline as well, but if you compare the pattern it is exactly the same.

Same top.

Modeled differently, in different lighting, and the whole white bikini thing.

Same top. I think the models are different sizes and are wearing different undergarments, but it's the same top.

They are the same length - the models are different heights/body styles so it's hitting at different points on their bodies. Plus it's creating somewhat of an illusion because one is just wearing a bikini and one is wearing pants. It's definitely the same top, just lighting and what they are wearing underneath is different.

I get cute stuff some of the time; in fact, some of the other things in this order were keepers. It's a crapshoot, though.

I get tired of everything being so sheer...another way to cut corners and quality, played off as "sexy."

That's not necessarily a problem, BTW!
One time I did get a top that was way too tight and much more sheer than it looked in the picture. It was weird because I'd never had fit problems with their clothes before, and haven't since save for one kind of odd-fitting pair of jeans.

I'm bored so I spent way too much time comparing every inch, position, model, lighting, undergarments. To me it's the same shirt. I rarely like loose knit things but I actually kind of like this one.
Some of my favorite tops and panties are from VS. I have some long sleeve jersey tees from them that are years old and so soft and nice. Love them. But some of their stuff is certainly crap, especially their acrylic sweaters.

I think this thread is really fascinating in how people are seeing these images differently.

It seems so freaking obvious to me they are the same top! [Sorry.]
Who Me? likes this.

Poor Honeycurls probably had no idea we'd take the thread in this direction.

Naturallycurly.com is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get. I just love this crazy place.

I love their panties, some of the hoodies by Pink, their makeup and perfumes (Heavenly and Bombshell).

The bras are kind of hit or miss. I own one really cute top I bought at the VS store.

But I've never actually ordered anything from them online, unless you count this dress my mom ordered for my birthday several years ago.

It looked so hot in the catalog...I had to order it in the smallest size possible because I'm petite and I was very skinny then. Unfortunately, when it finally arrived and I tried it on, I was disappointed. The material was weird and it simply billowed out on my body.

I really want to try their bikinis and their halter tops and maybe even some of the shoes, but I'm kind of apprehensive.
