Rated 5 out of 5┬áby dawnstyle knit-like texture
I really like Left of Center tees, but I am never sure what the weight of the fabric will be. The texture of this top is like a very light knit. It has a stretch to it. It's very comfortable and soft. The sleeves are fitted and so is the bust. I typically wear a small and the small has a snug fit. If you are in between sizes I would recommend sizing up. I purchased the tee in black and I am thinking about getting the purple.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby riaa strong A shape, sizing may be tricky
I LOVE this shirt! great quality, super-soft fabric.
You should know it is a strong A shape, more than the photos are showing - narrow in the bust, shoulders and arms and flaring out quite a lot at the hips.
I'm 5'6" 120lbs, 34b, small shoulders. the medium fits me slightly loosely at the shoulders/bust but has a LOT of fabric at the hips. the small is fitted up top and more reasonable in the flare at the bottom. neither shirt looks good tucked in, just too much fabric at the bottom.
(if I had bought a x-small I think the bottom would have the perfect amount of fabric but the bust would be way too tight.)
I kept both the small and medium since I love the color and fabric so much. they didn't shrink too much after washing and drying, which is awesome because I didn't get sized out of the small.
the shirts I have are quite a bit longer than the photos shown here.

Rated 1 out of 5┬áby Illustrator this fabric does NOT drape well at all
while this looks fantastic in the picture, the fabric is a thin, slubbed cotton that Anthro seems to be buying a lot of these days. It's a shame, because this could look fantastic with a heavier-weight knit fabric that would drape well. Also, it'd be nice if it came in a petite length, since this turns out to be a longish tunic on my short frame, but the MAIN thing is you need to use better fabric! Even at the relatively inexpensive price, this top isn't worth it. I'm keeping the gold-colored one because I love the color, but it looks like a sad, rumpled nightgown unless I tuck it in, at which point it looks just barely ok.
