I actually bought this hoping to use it as a light robe, and, pricing aside, I think it would do nicely as such. I usually go for the petite option when available (I'm 5'4", 110 lbs#, but since I was looking for something long and a little loose, I opted for the XS and thought it was perfect for my needs. The quality is okay - very soft and comfortable, but it is rather fragile and I'd be nervous to wear it out and about for fear of snagging it on something. I do think it would be perfect for lounging around at home in, though I realize most people would probably not purchase for that purpose alone. I also love the look of the slouchy pockets, though they're a bit thin to be very functional. Overall, I don't have the utmost confidence in how well it would hold up and keep its shape over time, and so, even though I really do like it #as a robe#, I can't justify keeping it for full price. I'll consider reordering if it goes on sale.

My first duster!
Nothing "dusty" about this sweater, it's so versatile especially for major dress wearers like yours truly. I saw this on a sales associate at the Georgetown-DC store and thought it looked beautiful on her. She wore it over her dress, brilliant! I'm 34B and Petite S fits well. (Petite XXS fit is a tad tight in the arms (I have big arms), the S fits ok but the sleeves were too long. I think if you are petite, you should try on the petite size for the perfect length. Otherwise, the regular size maybe too long on short ladies like me. I usually wear regular sweaters over my dresses, so this is a nice fashion change. The material is very light but not too sheer, and perfect for spring and summer, and even for winter for the office. The price is right too! Special thanks to the staff at Georgetown-DC store for being so courteous, knowledgeable, and fun!

This cardigan is gorgeous. I purchased the coral in medium and the color is the same as in photos, even prettier on. I was cautious at first that it would be enveloping and robe-like, but it is open and very comfortable. My first trip out and I received a compliment on my outfit and the color of the garment. The fabric is of good quality and it hangs nicely. It flows well when you walk and also looks great with a scarf to add more layers. Such a lovely addition to any outfit. Especially nice if there is a little breeze to keep you warm.
I saw this at the store and just had to try it on. It looks even better on than it does in the online picture. The crocheted detail is absolutely beautiful. I tried it on with a dark gray silky t-shirt and gray skinny jeans with ankle boots. The look was perfect and polished. This is a great piece to add to your spring/summer wardrobe. I bought an XS/S and fit was flattering not boxy.

perfect sunny weather top
I was looking for a few pieces for my spring break trip to Florida and I thought this would be perfect. it's great to where to the beach with my swimsuit under it and a big floppy sun hat, or just during the day with a nude cami underneath. Its so comfortable because it flows, and I never got to hot because it's open, lacey design.

Too cute to pass up!
Spotted this top on Anthro Day & just had to try it on. The XS/S fit perfectly & looks on me as in the model pic. I am usually XS or S so wld say fits tts. It does have a special prettiness abt it. You will need wear a separate tank underneath.
This top is a soft knit. But, it's two layers. The inside layer is a thin cotton that holds the floral lace bottom trim. So, the bottom trim IS NOT sewn on to the navy (knit# part of the top. It's separate. This makes it a warmer top having two layers. But, it makes the lace less prone to ripping at the bottom when the knit stretches. It's also do-able for braless because of the lining.
The sizing it TTS. I bought the XL and it fit me nice and tailored, but not snug. XL is my normal size on Anthro unless something runs large #then I buy L.)
The bottom lace is not really thin or delicate. But, it is in need of moderate care to prevent tearing since it is low and you do sit on it, etc.
Why they are saying this is "fringe" is beyond me. It's just a bottom lace TRIM as one solid piece also.

I keep saying I'm not going to buy anything else from anthro...then I saw this top! I just got it in the mail today. It's really colorful at the bottom but the solid top balances it out. I'm a sucker for a layered shirt and anthro has so many great ones this season. This top was a little bit baggier than I wanted it to be, but if I sized down it would be too tight under my arms. It's still flattering being baggy though. Definitely get this top!

best top ever!
This is so gorgeous in person. the lace at the bottom is intense with the colors being more dark. The top is flattering for all shapes out there so no worries about the upper body! Order a size down and if you are not too tall order a petite version. I am 5'5" I ordered a petite version which hits just right. the models are fairly tall. the body part is lined too. no see through. weel made!
This top was pricey so I hesitated to buy it, but them there was the Mother's Day sale so here it is in my closet. Love this top, the lace on the back really makes it so unique. It fits true to size. I had no issue with the arm holes. I am a size 8 and ordered the medium - maybe the small would have been better thru the body on me but the medium looks great. Since it was an online exclusive I had to make a guess for the size. I really prefer going to the store and trying things on.

Will wait for sale
I'm 5'1 110lbs with a 34c bust size. I took my usual xsp and the fit was good, just a little tight and boxy around the shoulder and arm area (but acceptable). I was taken aback by how breezy this piece is considering it's a sweater, but the eyelet in the back allows a lot of air to pass through making it wearable in the early summer months. I really like the peekaboo effect on the back and how it shows off your silhouette yet covers you. I got the light mauve and it is as pictured. Unfortunately, I'm not rolling in dough, and I think this item would be more welcomed in my closet on sale.
I'm surprised this top hasn't had a review yet so I hope this will help someone!

i love this too. It is so unique. Feels very breezy because of the lace on the back. Sometimes a lil too breezy like I'm wearing nothing on top! It's a good top for the cooler summer days.
I agree with the other reviewer that this sweater is worth investing in EVERY COLOR! I purchased the small in mint and definitely want to get the black and coral colors as well. The top portion of the sweater is flowy and the lower band is fitted at the hip area. Depending on how you style it, the sweater will billow out a tad but still looks like it fits well and flatters. You can wear it with a pair of jeans or tuck it in like in the photo, as it is a super versatile piece. Do yourself a favor and get this sweater in every color!

Great wardrobe staple.
I recently purchased this Moth knit shirt in black and am going back to purchase it in the mint and coral as well. It's lightweight and has a beautiful, comfortable fit.
I love the look of this top. It is a quality, substantial jersey knit and the style is sharp and slightly retro. I was really hoping it would work. However, the fit for me was not good. I ordered my regular XS/0, 5'7", 115lbs, 32,25,34 and felt that there was just too much fabric around the bust and torso. I think it would have looked better if it had been designed as a more fitted style.. The length on me was same as on the model - not too cropped and not too long. I would still recommend trying this top - it might work better on someone with a fuller bust.

Flattering top. Substantial knit. It is not see through and the traps are strategically placed so that brastraps don't show. True to size I think. I am usually a size 0 and the xs fits like on the model. That being said , the straps have a slight buckle in the inner shoulder area. Not troublesome enough to cause me to return. It's quite cute. It looks great with the black bermuda shorts!
I probably looked at this during 5 or 6 visits to my local store, but it didn't look like much on the hanger, so I never tried it on.. When I finally did try it on, I was very pleasantly surprised. It is a somewhat unusual dolman-style peasant sleeve with a drawstring on the bottom side of the sleeve that is more sophisticated than the typical bows on peasant tops you sometimes see. Also, the beaded v-neckline is more sophisticsted than most peasant tops that tie...really elegant and unique! Beading is very well-done and the lace is 81% cotton and is gorgeous (not a big fan of synthetic lace). I have no idea why it looks so bland and boring in the photos, but just take a chance and try it on. I'm a modest woman and felt the cami that comes with it does its job as a liner.
