Â by GeoInCalifornia Wow Fit! Boo Sheer! andâ€¦On What Planet does Neon-G
If a flattering fit is all you expect from a T then look no further. I was also looking for the right color, and some modesty. PLEASE!!! Iâ€™m always dubious of an unfamiliar tag that clearly readsâ€¦GENERIC.
SIZE: TTS for Anthro. I normally wear a Small in Anthro Tops, and a Med in non-Anthro. I ordered a Small. Iâ€™m 5â€™5â€ť, 140 lbs, a busty 34DD, 35-29-37, long waist, short T-Rex arms, almost no shoulders.
FIT & FABRIC: Fabulous fit. Forms to the curves with just enough give to look amazing and feel wonderful. The neckline would have displayed too much cleavage without buttons. The non-stretch shirt tail back is genius. It allows for a secure drape, without sticking and causing the shirt to rumple and work its way up.
SHEER: The rest of the T has stretch, but is so sheer you canâ€™t wear it without a 2nd layer. Something I refuse to do when itâ€™s 110 F. The 2nd layer would have to be synthetic, to prevent the cotton T from clinging and compromising the drape. This might be OK if you donâ€™t suffer from hot flashes.
COLOR: I never have issues with color. So I know itâ€™s not my Monitor. I wanted Yellow. The Yellow color-way is bright, almost NEON-GREEN. The piping and shirt tail are closer to yellow, but still no dice. IMO, even a trace of Green negates Yellow.
I would have happily sprung for this T in Navy, Coral and Brown for $48, if thatâ€™s what it takes to make SHEER DISAPPEAR.
If a flattering fit is all you expect than order on. I canâ€™t recommend this T for anything else.
I pray my three Raw-Edged V-Neck Tâ€™s by t.l.a. donâ€™t develop pin holes. So far, so good after initial washing in a delicate wash bag.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by SydneyM Great top but sheer
The colors of this top, especially the coral, are more vibrant in person. It is soft, light and comfy for summer but I wish it were a little less sheer, I felt like I would need a cami and I would want a top like this for hot, casual summer days and don't want the extra layer. I also really like the neckline, it hit me at just the right spot to be flattering and not show too much so again I don't want to have a cami change that neckline. My usual large fit nicely, maybe just slightly big but sizing down would have made it clingy which was not what I wanted. The front hit at the bottom of my hip, long enough not to show any belly when I put my arms up, and the back covered my butt.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rowan Look no further - this is your perfect summer tee
I was at the local Anthro yesterday trying on a bunch of things i had put in my wishlist, and none of which "wow'd" me! But as I was roaming about I saw this tee and thought --- I really need some casual tee's with a touch of whimsy that can take me through the summer months. I am always HOT!!!! I look for lightweight, soft, clothing that will beat the 90+ heat and humidity. The colors were what drew me. Of course i wanted white (love white tees in the summer) but the coral is really a vibrant hot coral, the navy is inky and rich, and the yellow one is a neon greenish/yellow. The shirt transforms on the body. It follows your curves but never hugs, which is important when you have a bit of belly to hide. The v-neck dips nicely but not so low that that the "girls" are exposed to the world. And it's long enough to not cut you short, giving you a nice long lean line. Unlike the other reviewer I found the top to be opaque, but not sheer --- even in the white I would wear it with just a basic bra. I highly recommend this tee shirt. For reference, I am 5'6" tall, 142lbs with a 36B top. My measurements are 36-29-38 (yes, I need to lose some poundage) and the Medium fit perfect. I am usually a solid M in Anthro tees and this was no exception. And of course, I bought it in almost every color because that is just how I am when I find a perfect piece.
