I saw this top on-line and I decided I had to have it! I wanted to try it on because in tops that run a little more baggy, I tend to size down. I'm between a small and medium and I went with the small in this top. I wear a 34D, 27 waist and usually an 8 in pants. Also, I was worried that if I went with the small it would be too small around my hip/butt area since it's pretty long and that it might be tight in the arms too but it wasn't at all! Also this is a great lightweight tee without being paper thin and hole/snag prone. It seems to be a great quality item. I bought two and plan to pick up a couple more colors in the near future!

Great basic. Buy two.
I got this in Dark Blue with the intention of wearing it under a long cardigan. It looks great with that, and alone. Easy-stylish... throw on with a necklace and skinnies, or leggings. It's a nice medium weight (not too heavy/thick, not too thin/sheer)...Fabric is soft, with a bit of dressiness to it (so it's not just a cotton basic). /Neckline is flattering shape, but not too high or too low. I appreciate that the sleeves are not 3/4 length-- full length is difficult to find these days. Garment is well made and worth the price (although the price is not insane, so that's a good thing). I wish it was maybe an inch or two shorter, but I also like it as-is just fine, too, where I still want a 2nd color and will probably get one soon. You might want to consider petite size if 5'4." I usually have issues finding tops that are long enough with a long torso, so I'm not going to complain! This is definitely a tunic length, though, just for reference.
I'm 5'6", 34A, 125, no hips, but a bit of tummy fluff(which doesn't show in this top). I most often wear a Small, but I sometimes go between either S or XS, depending on the brand and cut. XS is still flowy enough on me, but the amount of fabric on the small was just fine too-- wasn't overwhelming and didn't feel like I was drowning. The XS was my preference because of where the shoulder stitches hit.

I could live in this and wear it everyday! I love that you can dress it up or down and it's beyond comfortable! I hope they re-stock other colors! I get compliments every time I wear it.
When I saw this shirt, it immediately reminded me of other Left of Center tees - especially my favorite one from about 3 years ago -- so I bought it in both the taupe and mint colors the first day it was online. When I got it, I was surprised to see that the front is asymmetrical. (I can tell that now by looking at the pictures but I just thought it was draped a little off-center on the hanger and it's hidden in the picture of the red colorway.) Anyway, if you are ok with that, then the shirt is great. The material is very light-weight, it fits true to size and the A-line swing is great for those who are pear-shaped. The mint color is very light and pleasing and the taupe surprisingly didn't wash out this fair-skinned blonde. I like the thicker seam on the bottom -- but in a perfect world, it wouldn't be uneven in front. Nonetheless, I like the rest of the cut so much that I am keeping them both.

This T-shirt is perfect for where I live (SF Bay Area). I am 5'4", 126-130ish depending on how much I eat, 34-36B, and the SMALL fits well. It's flowy, yet not baggy, funky in a cool way, not flashy or too out there. It covers my butt too. I bought 3 (black, white, taupe), planning to make them my spring/ summer staple, then ordered 2 more (peach and white) because they fit that great. I bought 1 similar LEFT OF CENTER T 3 years ago; it lasted 2.5 years til I mistakenly put it in the dryer. I think that one was a cotton blend. This one is 100% cotton (so it has the potential to stretch out) so I plan to treat it even more gently (gentle cycle, woolite, lie flat to dry). one of the things I like abt it is it works well for my rectangle/going on apple figure.

This simple tee shirt is so flattering, even with just yoga pants, cute sneakers and a jean jacket. It seems to be cut on the bias, so it's shapely, but the slightly A-line cut means my slightly pouchy stomach doesnt show. (I'm 5'4", 126-132ish, and the small is perfect.) I wound up getting white, blue, black and peach. The taupe turned out to be too muddy, though with the gold necklace like the model is wearing, it wd be better.
Even though this sweater is listed as "online" only, I saw it at my local Anthro-Georgetown DC store. It's very light and super soft in the gray sweater part, and very smooth in the flower part. The gray color seems a bit darker, and the flowers seem to be brighter in person, but not much difference. Like the previous reviewer said, it has a lot of static and I could tell the difference when I tried it on with or without a camisole. However, a little spritz of static spray will fix the problem, not a big deal. The sweater is thin and light, which is great for transition from winter to spring in the East Coast. Overall, I think it's a basic, pretty, and low-maintenance sweater.

Pretty but a bit different than it appears online
First off, I waited for this shirt to be available in my size for a long time. In general I would say it is worth the wait, however there a few things to mention that are not represented in the pictures or info. First off, the grey back, sleeves & collar are much darker than they appear here. They are much more of a charcoal heathered grey than the light heathered grey shown here. Also, unlike another similar style shirt currently for sale by a different company on Anthro, the description of this shirt does not include the fact that there are darts sewn in to the side of the floral fabric about mid boob level. This initially annoyed me but I like the shirt enough and waited so long for it I can ook past it. (If you zoom in on the model's photo you can just barely see the darts - a mention of this would have been appreciated.) The only other slight downside is the sides of the shirt are cut high, this poses a bit of a problem for a long torso, so if you are uncomfortable with a little side skin showing sometimes, layering a cami underneath should solve the issue.
Overall though I think the quality seems good and the shirt is unique and beautiful. I look forward to wearing it!

Brighten up your spring season
This top is a combination of a sweatshirt and a blouse. The material is very soft and thin all around and a silky insert in the front. It's casual while still unique and the color is very pretty, great for spring. I am usually size 0-2 in Anthro. I purchased this in XS and , like one of the reviewers mentioned, it feels a bit large. However, I think that's the style of this shirt - flowy silhouette and loose neckline. Also it's made in USA. Very happy with the purchase, wish it was on sale.
I am so glad I bought this in XS (Regular) because it fits perfect. I am 5'2, 115 lbs, 34C with a petite shape.
I have read the other reviews and do not agree with some of them. I guess it just depends on your body shape and size. I am sure if I bought this top any bigger, it would look too big especially when this top is a slight bit on the wider side just below the chest. I have small arms so I had no issues with the arm sleeves being tight.
Overall this was a great purchase and I am very satisfied :)

I tried the in the XS and S..and went with the S. The color is definitely more to the ivory side then white. I found the length on me was close to the model shot..maybe just a bit longer. It's a little more fitted on top which is nice so it doesn't go into a maternity look..which tends to happen on me. The fabric is substantial in the body and I felt that a nude bra would work well..not too see through. Great piece for layering :-) (5'3..124..34C)

even better in person
I wish I hadn't listened to the other reviews. I bought a size sm and should have ordered an extra small. I have a 34 A bust and am small through the torso. I thought because the other reviews said it ran small I should order on the safe side with the small...which I usually purchase in all tops. An extra small would have fit me better but I am still in love with this top.
It is good quality and definitely cream color or ivory.
I can't even explain how much I love this! It's one of those tops that is super comfy yet can be pulled together too. It's the perfect thickness and softness; sort of waffle-like and not too sheer at all. I plan to wear it with leggings (it does cover the butt) I got the lavender stripe color and it's pretty much as shown; a very pale lavender. It is true to size. (I'm not sure how to describe my body type: I am small-chested and thin, yet not petite in terms of leg and arm length.) I got XS. I want another one!

I love this tunic. It is so soft and comfortable. I bought the lilac in stores and will probably order another color. The lilac really looks more grey though but I like it. I bought my normal size - large - and it is a little loose but I wouldn't want a smaller size.

Pretty but inconsistent
I ordered this pretty tee in two sizes. When they arrived, the colors were so different--one pale blue as pictured, one a medium teal--that I checked both the packing slip and the labels to make sure that both were in fact the "mint" blue I was expecting. The fabric was also different; the S was loosely woven and quite sheer, the XS more thick and less see-through. I found myself between sizes; the XS was short on me, while the S was a little big all around. The sleeves were too long on both. The shirt was cozy and pretty, and I may reconsider if it comes down, but it is not a satisfying buy at this price point.
I'm on the lighter side of olive skin tone and bought this one in pink. It's pale pink but to me, it's more on the peachy side than on the pink side. One must see this top in person in order to appreciate it. It has lace details in the front and sheer polka dot fabric on the top of the back. That's a lot of details for a simple cotton top. I'm 34B and bought this in size S and it fits perfectly. I like how the arm holes are covered perfectly and not loose, and the fabric is a bit thick yet breathable. This top is very flattering, especially around the neckline. I think this top is versatile because I can wear it in the spring and summer, and wear a jacket over it in the winter time. It's great for travel because it's light and can be worn casually or dressed up. I'm thinking of getting it in other colors as well.

The floral design on this takes me back to the 90s. This tank has such intricate detail and would look great with a denim jacket over-top. I had to pick this up in the white & pink, staple neutral colors in my closet. This is a great piece that I will be grabbing for to enter warm spring days and transition right into a hot summer.

Cute Sleeveless Tshirt
Super cute and you don't need a cami underneath it! I purchased the red color in the store but it is more of a salmon color. I agree with previous reviewer that it is a little tight in the chest area. I purchased my regular size of a large. Great detail ... will be great with capris.
I loved this in the blue/sage combo, and snapped it right up. I didn't have any issues with static and clingness, but I may have if I tried it earlier this winter. It works even for large busts. Looks great with dark denim. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Perfect winter to spring shirt
LOVE this shirt. I tried on both a medium and a large (I'm large busted, D cup) Both sizes fit but I ended up going with the large because while I have a big bust I don't like to flaunt it and I enjoyed the roominess that came with the larger size.
Perfect shirt for transition from winter into spring.

Just bought this today! Looks great with leggings or jeans. Can't wait to wear it out!
