I bought this top in a size regular 0. For reference, I am 5'1'' and 120 lbs and usually a regular XS or size 2 in tops. Unlike the other reviewers, I found that this top ran slightly large and, hence, decided to size down. Other reviewers mentioned that the cap sleeves might run a little small. This was not the case with me, and I did not find them restricting in the smaller size (and I do not have thin arms).
I also did not find it flattering when it was not tucked into jeans or a skirt- the loose, billowy style didn't give me much of a shape. When it is tucked into jeans, however, it is darling. It is slightly low-cut- I'll have to wear a cami underneath it for work.
Also, the pattern is as pictured- and I loved the bright pattern for spring. The fabric definitely feels synthetic, but I didn't mind, as it still feels cool and smooth on my skin. It is not very see-through either.
Overall, though it isn't the perfect anthro top, I couldn't resist buying since it was such a cute, summer pattern.

even cuter than I hoped!
I bought the watermelon print, because, adorable. I was a little worried this might be too blousey (because I have a large bust), and while it is long and a little flowy, it is cut just the right width so I don't look huge or pregnant. I'm delighted! I've been getting so many compliments on the fun print, too.
The only drawback is that the sleeves are cut just a tad too short - they hit right at that awkward spot that can make upper arms look huge, but I'm overlooking that because I love it so much otherwise!

Great shirt to dress up or down!
I love this shirt. It fits true to size an is very flattering. It doesn't cling but isn't baggy. I love this shirt because you can dress it up or down and is just over all a really good shirt!
I had just purchased the earrings that the model wears in the picture for this piece and that is how I discovered it, so I was pleased to find it at my local store. Normally wear a size 8 in many Anthro blouses so I tried that size and a size 6 based on the reviews that it ran large, especially in the bust. I went with the size 6 and may even go back and try on the 4, because it does feel roomy in the bust area as other reviews noted. The rest of the blouse fits just as is portrayed on the model, not tight or form fitting. The quality is very nice and it is lined. It does require a strapless bra. I purchased this along with a pair of black tapered paper bag trousers that are currently on sale which I plan to wear with flat gold sandals and the earrings shown. Also goes well with jeans, especially dark wash and white jeans for a less dressy look. Best feature is the unique neckline which makes even my arms and shoulders look great so I imagine it will look phenomenal on someone with toned arms!

I purchased this online in size 4, I am usually between 4 and 6 however based on previous comments I went for a 4. The 4 is still quite roomy around the bust however it is actually not too bad as it adds to the light, breezey style of the top.
I think I'll be wearing it with skinny pants, as it is too wide to tuck in to a skirt.
The print is even more gorgeous in person. Can't wait to wear it out soon!

This top is darling! I wore it with white skinny jeans and yellow Christian Louboutins and it was a hit! So summery! Fit might run a little big, however, the slightly oversize looks cute with the skinny jeans! Very flattering! Good heavy material helps it to keep its shape!
At first glance this top may seem not the best investment, but I'd disagree. The pattern and colors are eye catching, yet not over the top. It fits really well--way better than I would have expected--and is true to size (I am petite and have a 34C/D bust, I purchased a regular size 4). The top isn't too long, but hits me just below the waist (where I like it). I have washed it already and it seems to have come out fine (with a line dry). This is a unique piece to add to your wardrobe and it works for environment ranging from casual to work professional.

Perfect summer top
Absolutely love this top; it's my new favorite! The material is super lightweight, but not sheer. I love the halter design and tie, and the color is fun without being too bright or loud. I am 5'0, 25 waist, 110 lbs and I ordered the 0 Petite. It's the perfect length to wear with shorts or jeans, and could easily be dressed up. The fit is loose, but not boxy. I would definitely get another if they had it in a different design ;)

A true delight
So beautiful. I tried it on a whim. It fit wonderfully. I am a C 36 and got a size 6. It's too lovely without a bra so I don't bother with one. Soft, flows nice. Goes with everything. Pants, skirts both long and short. The color is the same as in the photo. I have a long torso but the length was just fine for me. I'm not into those short shirts, thank goodness this isn't one of them.
Even though the name of the blouse is "peasant," nothing peasant about it. First, kudos for a real silk blouse and not synthetic fabric. It may look delicate but it's well sewn. However, one must take the blouse on and off a bit more careful and a t-shirt because, after all, it's sheer silk. Speaking of sheer, this blouse is very see through so a tank top is a must. A Georgetown-DC sales associate suggested that this blouse can be worn over a tank dress, brilliant idea of multi-tasking! The fabric flows beautifully and I like the muted flower print to make the lace details shine. It shows off my figure and hides the flaws, love it. Thanks to the previous reviewer for the tips about sizing. I'm 34B and regular size Small fits me perfectly, both width and length. I haven't came across a unique blouse like this in a long time. I think it's worth the price because the designer put a lot of thought and talent into this blouse.

I'm loving all of the sheer tops for spring/summer, and this one is no exception.
It's got a whole lot going on (printed, sheer silk; textured bib; crochet trim) but manages to ring simple, casual and comfortable. It is, admittedly, a bit short for my taste, but it works. Also, for what it's worth, the sleeves are not necessarily sleeves as there is no seam underneath (I'm sure there is a technical term for this, but I'm at a loss).
I'm still not sure whether this can be worn without a cami. The silk is definitely sheer, but it's *not* sheer around the bust area. I'm including two pictures, one with a white cami and one with a nothing but a bandeau bra underneath. I think in a more casual atmosphere, sans cami is fine.
I normally wear a size XS, but the store I was at only had a S and it fit fine.
For reference: 120 lbs, 5'4", 36B-27-27 and I purchased a S.

Love this top. Very feminine, whimsical, with a vintage look and feel. Yes, it is shear but not at the bust area where the heavier lace is. I am 5'4" 125, 34C and bought the XS.
I purchased this top in my Anthro store a few days ago and can't wait to wear it. It fit beautifully, I got a medium, usually I am a medium/large and was so glad it fits my bust (40DD) and is so cute. The drape is very flattering as is the hanky hem which falls about mid thigh. The picture really does not capture the lovely pink flowing material and subtle details. I plan to wear this with a black pencil skirt and white capris for a trip to Palm Springs. It is a splurge but with the fit, color and cuteness I will wear it all summer. I do recommend a nude color racer back bra.

Just gorgeous! More colors please!
First I was skeptical. But then I read the positive reviews and decided to buy this top. So glad I made this purchase. This top falls so nicely. Makes me look 10 pounds slimmer. More colors please!!!

I just bought this at the store today! It is really beautiful. Very soft and light fabric, and it goes with jeans, skirts and pants, really versatile. Probably what I like most about this tank is that I am currently 5 months pregnant and it fits great with tons of room to grow. It is a great pre-during-and-post baby shirt! I know most of you reading this won't be looking for maternity clothes, but if you are, or plan to be, this is a great purchase! And it will be perfect to hide the post baby belly late this summer after I have the baby!
I bought this with the idea that I might return it, but found myself getting dressed one morning and threw it on and wore it. I absolutely love it and wear it all the time.
I usually wear it open over jeans or shorts with a tank under. It is so clean and simple and flowy. I took it to Hawaii and wore it on the plane and as a beach coverup AND as a light throw out to dinner. More colors, please!! Although the pure white color is the best.
My normal size M is what I bought.

Simple but beautiful
I'm a little sad that I can't wear this shirt every day, because it's so clean and classic, but at the same time it makes a statement. When I got it in the mail it was pretty wrinkled which I was worried about because of the texturing of the fabric. However, I just had to be careful not to press to hard or leave the iron in one spot for too long and it was easily fixed.

Under 5'5" go for the petites
I liked the top, just found it very long - I am 5'3" and it grazed my ankle in the regular length - on a tall woman that may be flattering, but it looked silly on me. It is see through so a cami is a must. If you are tall with a long torso, it may look good belted at the waist.I liked the fabric,too, looked and felt like proper cotton gauze, not synthetic-y.
This blouse is beautifully made and the fabric is gorgeous. It is lined, except for the sleeves, but light, perfect for summer and there is no need for a cami. The tone-on-tone embroidery on the front is soft and subtle with just a very few hints of gold thread interwoven in the white. I have another Tiny Brand blouse I purchased from Anthro five or six years ago that I still love and wear often-and the quality of both is great.
For reference, I am 5'5" and about 123 pounds, with broader shoulders, so I purchased the Medium , as this blouse is cut somewhat straighter than my other. I wanted to be sure it was loose and comfortable. It's fine and I would say that your regular size should work well.

I haven't had time to go to my local Anthro store, so checked out some items online & knew I'd love this blouse. I had high expectations, but again Anthro exceeded them. I agree with everything the first reviewer noted. But it also has subtle beading. The craftsmanship is beautiful. I think it might be made to wear not tucked in, but I personally like it tucked.
Re sizing, I'm 5'2, 112 lbs & the XXS fits perfectly. I debated getting the petite & so glad I didn't - I love the way the regular fits & drapes;

Beautiful peasant shirt!
This top is just beautiful. It's a peasant top with subtlle metallic threads running through the detail of the front of the shirt. I tried a regular XS in the store. The front fit fine but the back seemed a little long for me. I ordered the XXS petite since the XS petite was sold out. I'm not sure how it will fit. I'm thinking the length in back will be fine but may be too tight. I hope not. It's a great casual top - versatile & fashionable.
