I'm going to agree with the other reviewer who said she thought the ruffle was going to be a soft chiffon. Too bad it isn't because it would be so much better! The problem is that the ruffle is a stiff cotton and therefore it feels very large and intrusive. I also had trouble getting it to lay flat. I couldn't decide if it looked good or not, but finally decided that the ruffle was so big that I would probably feel self-conscious all day. The tank is very thin, but nice quality. I felt in ran quite loose, so you may want to go one size down on this top.

I had written this top off because of the lukewarm-to-negative reviews. I saw it in my Anthro store today and decided to give it a try, anyhow. I was super-pleasantly surprised at how cute it was on and in person. I hate to say this, but the girl in the picture in a previous review looks terrible in it. She was completely overpowered by the ruffle. This was not the case for me, I think because I have broader shoulders than she. In person, the ruffle looks exactly the way it does on the mannequin and it lays just like that, too. For reference, I'm 5'3, 130 lbs, 36C chest. While I'm heavier than the mannequin, the proportion of the ruffle to the rest of me looked more like it did on the mannequin. I was in no way overpowered by it. I told the salesgirl how much I loved it, and she said almost everyone who has tried it on has had the same reaction. The moral of this review is to try this on for yourself before judging whether it will look good on you based on someone else's photo.

I did purchase this top in the ivory and I'm still not sure about keeping it or not. I definitely liked the ivory better because the black with navy just seemed too dark for me. The only problem with the ivory is that it's slightly see through and the back is more of a racer back so you would need a racer back bra and a light color at that. I fluctuate between a size small and medium and the size small fit best.
