    Perfect shirt
    This is just about the perfect blouse - classic yet cool, slightly drapy fit but still flattering, classy while still being a bit sexy, perfect on its own or layered, makes my waist look tiny while hiding the remnants of my 1 1/2 year-old baby bump. I am so picky about what I pay full price for, and to me, this was worth it. I am a 32DDD and the chest fits me just fine - I took my normal XS. After being out and about there was a tiny bit of gaping in the top button, but it had to do with the softness of the material and the wide spacing between the buttons rather than the top being too small. Since the fit is not the issue, I'm just going to take it to a tailor and spend the few dollars to get a hidden snap put in.

    Beautiful quality, odd fit across the chest
    This is a very nice shirt. The fabric is thick without being too heavy. I love general look and feel of it, and I can tell it can wear it through the summer and it will still be cool. I also experienced the odd fit. I usually take a M in Anthro tops, sometimes an L if the shoulders are narrow. I took an L in this top because I have another cloth and stone shirt that's a medium and it pulls a little across the chest and shoulders, but fits everywhere else. However, when I tried this shirt on, it still pulled across the chest, but was somewhat large everywhere else. I do have a wider back and am a 36C, but I feel like it's a bit odd that the shirt is actually slightly large in the shoulders, yet still tight in the chest. I think an XL would just be giant on me since the shirt is supposed to s bait slouchy, so this may have to go back. That said, I do think this is a nice, high quality shirt that would really be a wardrobe staple. I think it's just not for ladies with wider backs or bigger chests.

    I love Cloth & Stone
    These Cloth & Stone button-downs are literally the best shirts ever! The Tencel fabric is incredibly soft, even after being washed multiple times on the normal & hand-wash cycle (& I don't use fabric softeners either). It also has a nice weight to it: light-weight without showing every bit of moisture, hangs nicely, breathes easily, etc. They're out of my usual price range for shirts because I seem to go through shirts so quickly, but I make an exception for these shirts because they're just so darn comfortable & flattering! That being said, this brand does run small, particularly in the shoulders. I like to have a full range of motion in my shoulders, and for me (who usually wears a small in Anthro shirts), the medium works best for me. For reference, I'm 5'6", 135lbs, 34B chest, and 36" if I measure around the widest part of my shoulders. Buy it now! These shirts never seem to make it on sale, at least not in sizes small or medium. I purchased this Luna shirt in white & wear it constantly. It was definitely worth every penny!

    Way cute
    I have broad shoulders and got size 10 and it's perfect fit. If you have broad shoulders, definately size up. The black with flowers is gorgous, even better in person. It is long enough and has nice weight and great material. I wear it open with shirt under with a cute smocked waist skirt and its so cute. I highly recommend. Do not wash. only dry clean. Rayon does not do well in the washing machine and is bound to get ruined.

    Lovely blouse, wonderfully feminine silhouette!
    This top is fantastic! I purchased the cream color with the black polar bears and it is such a fun print, but also the loveliest fitting blouse. Overall, it runs true to size, but if anything, it is a little tight in the chest area, so I would size up if you typically have a full chest. I am usually a size 6 or 8, so I went with the 8 for that reason. I just purchased a second one, the black with flowers, because it is so great. I will probably buy more as well. Definitely recommend this top!

    In love with this top!!
    I bought this top online and was a little hesitant due to the reviews about whether or not it runs small. I bought the black one and the blue and reds are so vibrant and colorful. I am usually a 12/14 top due to some shirts having sleeves that are too tight. I ordered this one size up and it fits perfect the material is flowy and light but not cheap. It does pull a little in the chest area so if you are a little busty I would most certainly order this a size up.

    First of all, I'm no fan of peasant tops or boxy shaped tops. I am short waisted, petite and slender and these loose fitting, flowy tops look terrible on me. I love tailored tops with waist definition. I wouldn't have thought to try it on, but the embroidery and colors were so gorgeous that they stopped me in my tracks. I'm so glad that I did! The top tapers at the waist for some definition and it's not overly flowy and loose fitting. The arms are on the looser side but not overly so. It's lovely. The mix of patterns, the embroidery, all lovely. It's TTS but if you want it more tailored, size down.

    This shirt looks even better on than in the picture. So glad I took a chance on it. It is nice and light so will be perfect for spring, but with a light sweater it works now as well. Well made, good colors and fabric. Highly recommend

    just as pretty in person, runs small
    I ordered this top in size Large and it looks just as nice in person as it does in the pictures. The pleating & embroidery are beautiful. It's smaller/tighter than other size Large Anthro blouses I have. I'm not sure if this is typical of the Ranna Gill brand since this is my first purchase from this designer. I would recommend sizing up if you'd like the top to match the looser fit shown in the model's photos.

    Beautiful Colors
    I fell in love with the coloring in this blouse and couldn't wait to get it home. The colors are as vivid in person as they are in the photos. The front and sleeves are a blouse material and the back is more like nice t-shirt material, making it even more unique. No quality issues with this at all though. I would typically take a medium petite in this, which is what I ordered, but the petite size emphasized my stomach in the wrong way, so I exchanged it for a regular medium, which I kept. For reference, I am 5'3", 36C, and curvy. I have worn this with the sleeves up and down and it works well either way. Very pleased with this purchase even though I wish it was lined rather than needing a camisole..

    so lovely
    I think it should be said that Anthro may need a new photographer. Or stylist. Or something. These photos are not depicting what the items really look like, and I think this top should be photographed on a brunette, or at least someone not so fair. I would never have looked at this top online. It looks so bad on the modelcompared to real life. I usually take a small in Tiny tops, but I took the xs in this one. For reference, I'm 5'7", 117, 34C, so sometimes the xs tops are a little tight, but this is incredibly flattering. It's low so I'll wear a cami, but the easy fit is so flattering, I can't wait to wear it. And the price is fabulous.

    Such a pretty blouse
    Every time I wear this blouse I get compliments. It's lightweight and comfortable. You can dress it up or down. The back is a jersey fabric and the front is silk. Great combination.

    One of a kind for sure!
    I love this beautiful cardigan! It is truly a cross between to a kimono and a cardigan. The material is soft and smooth and flowing! It is a beautiful must have! It has a beautiful pattern and I love that it buttons up which most like this do not have that feature, I saw it and knew I had to have it!! I highly recommend it!!!

    Absolutely gorgeous and awesome Kimono!!! Gorgeous pattern!! I am 5'2, 106 lbs, with a slender/athletic build and I originally ordered in XS/SM size...it was slightly long in the sleeves & covered my hands, so I exchanged it for a XSP/SMP and it was PERFECT!!! The cut and the way it looks on is beautiful and classy!!! My only issue with it was from the quality standpoint of the fabric...while the fabric is a beautiful pattern and material, the garment itself was stringy (had lots of tiny silk strings lose and sticking out of it)....I had to go thru and cut each tiny string off.

    Pretty kimono jacket
    -- This kimono looks and feels like silk. The design and color palette make it very versatile. -- This runs large, so I would recommend if you normally wear a M or L you size down to the XS/S. I would ONLY recommend people who normally wear an XL or who typically cannot wear Anthro tops due to sizing get the M/L -- Although it is semi-sheer, because of its pattern you cannot see any skin underneath this, so wearing it with bare arms and just a simple Cami on hot summer nights is just fine. As reference I have a very large and colorful tattoo on my arm and I couldn't see it under this. -- This is machine washable - always a plus. It will make a great travel staple, too, due to it's versatility. The best way to wear it is open, with a tank (as pictured here online).

    Too Tight
    I fell in love with this blouse when I first saw it. I waited for it to go on sale and when it did I pounced. Sadly when I received it I could barely get it on. It was so tight in the chest that the shirt was massively pulling and i couldn't get my arms all the way into the sleeves. For note I am a 36DD-DDD so this could be attributed to the tightness in the chest, but please keep in mind that I am very consistently a size 14. Unfortunately it had to go back.

    great blouse!
    I love this blouse! I just bought it in store on sale and am very satisfied. I bought the sky blue and thought it added a little color to my normal work wardrobe without being too much. It is soft and hangs well. The only problem I foresee is the scalloping not always laying right.

    Lovely blouse
    I saw this blouse in store and bought it in both colors being carried there - black and light blue. The fabric, while synthetic, is nice with a flattering drape to it. The scalloping details are feminine and lovely, though it's harder to see with the black version. I am normally between a small and medium (and between a 6 and 8) in tops, and the 6 fit perfectly.

    arm holes too large, one larger;but gorgeous
    Sadly will,probably return as the armholes are too large. The top fit me perfectly except for my bra peeking out especially on the left. I compared the armholes when I took it off and the left was larger explaining why a lot of my bra was showing on that side. I am a 36-38 A/B and considering taking to a seamstress to see if she can fix the armholes. If the lining were a little less tight (it was not too tight in the M but could have been looser) I might have tried a S since M's are sold out but think the lining will be too tight in my hips. The fabric is beautiful and it is nice that they lined it to avoid the need go for a cami. Still wavering as what to do. Maybe I will go to the seamstress just to get an opinion if it can be fixed or if they still have smalls try one.. I often find that in sleeveless tops at Anthro the armholes are too large or borderline too large but usually a M works well. If it works for you, it is a beautiful top and I highly recommend.

    Absolutely beautiful top
    I found this top to be mostly true to size. I am a DD cup and if I wasn't purchasing from overseas I may have tried one size up also. I do find the top twists a bit and needs to be readjusted from time to time. This is a small price to pay for such a stunning top though. I found the pleated front panel to be very flattering and the velvet adds a great textural element. I wore this top with dark skinny jeans, a black blazer, sandals and some jewellery and it was a great outfit for a nice dinner out.

    Highly recommend, if you're not broad shouldered!
    I loved this shirt from the first moment I saw it online and it was the first thing added to my basket during the great Thanksgiving sale of 2014. I opened the box and shredded the packaging overjoyed to own it. It all went downhill from there. I'm tall, broad, large-chested, and big boned. This tank was tight in the arm holes and pulled way too tightly across my chest, I cried. I don't think I could even have crossed my arms, I didn't try. The rest of the shirt; quality, beauty, length - all perfect. If you're lean I'd snap this beauty up!
