Rated 2 out of 5┬áby milled nothing special
I have been looking for the perfect lightweight loose-fitting tee for some time now and was excited when this hit the website. The colors all looked beautiful, but sadly, it is very unflattering on me. The neck is wide so I kept readjusting it to avoid showing bra straps. It's also really wide under the arms so there appeared to be extra fabric around my chest and it just hung on me. (although this might not be a problem on someone who has a bigger chest.) The material is a little sheer (especially in white) but not so sheer that you need a camisole (just make sure you have a flesh-toned bra on.) My quest for the perfect tee continues...

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby dashofcolor Gorgeous colors, easy-going loose fit
FIT: I'm 5'5" 118lbs and typically hover between a XS or S for shirts and got the XS. It does have a wide neckline as the previous reviewer mentioned, but that's because it's a *ballet* tee -- which is mean to be wide. It still covers bra straps if you're getting the right size (it's not meant to be off-shoulder). It is more spacious under the arms than most fitted tees, but again, I think that's part of the fit (I'll try posting pictures later if I can).
FEEL: The material is surprisingly thick; it's not a tissue tee, so you don't need to layer if you don't want to. I really liked how the material seemed thicker but still maintained a nice "breezy" shape as the title implies.
LOOK: I bought this in the sea green and pink (it says purple, but it's definitely a bright pink) -- and loved the colors SO much! The pink is extremely bright, bot a bubble gum pink -- it's a cool pink rather than a warm pink if you want some color theory. I've been staying away from the mint madness these days because I look horrible in that pastel, but this sea green is very bright and much more universally flattering. Be prepared for high color saturation for both! I also love the vertical seam detail in the back for just a hint of definition in this more loose/casual fit. Love it!
STYLING: I plan on wearing this both with skinny jeans and tucked into more demure pencil skirts for work for a bit more spring pop. Because the material isn't sheer/thin, I think it definitely lends more versatility to this tee!
OVERALL: A casual, loose comfy and vibrantly colored tee perfect for spring/summer!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby reneew Perfect Summer T
This t-shirt is perfect! Due to the fabric quality, it isn't too oversized or shapeless. That, I say, is hard to find. I purchased my typical size (M). FYI: I am a 34D (36C), short-waisted, and I am broad shouldered. The fabric has some body, and that gives it shape. The back is slightly longer, but it is easy to wear tucked in or worn out. Overall, this is a great summer t-shirt!
