    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.

    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.

    Classy Bohemian
    This shirt is beautiful and very unique. The embroidered panels are very well done and the shirt is well-made and fits tts. I am a true size medium, but quite busty, and the medium fit perfectly. The only complaint is that the front is a little short for my long torso. It is also a little dressier than I normally wear, but it will be perfect for conferences, etc. Even Bohemian Biologists need to look swanky sometimes!

    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.

    These are a few of my favorite things...
    I certainly don't need another denim top, or something more with lace or zippers. But when you combine them all in one top, I had to try it on. Pefection!!! Soft denim (& I still love the ombré look), and just the right amount of feminine lace, set off with a little edginess from the zipper. It's an overused phrase, but this IS a go to top. Got multiple compliments just in the fitting room, while wearing it with my skinny jeans, booties & a long necklace. Absolutely multi seasonal, and worth every single penny. Haven't washed yet, so don't know how that will go but I do have 2 other Holding Horses blouses that wash nicely & have held up well. This runs a bit big, and of course is meant to be a little flowy, but I did size down from my normal size 6 in tops (34D, 127lbs, 5'5") to a 4. Still plenty of room in chest & shoulders. I like flowy, by not baggy or overwhelming, and you can kind of control that by how much of the lace on the sides you reveal/unzip

    Bought this shirt today and have been getting so many compliments! If I want a simpler look I pull the zipper down, and when I want a more feminine look I pull the zippers up :) An amazing shirt and so worth the money!

    LOVE this top! It's very flattering, the fabric is so soft, the quality of the cut and sticking is top notch AND you're kinda getting two tops in one because of the zippers (to open or close, that is the question!)

    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.

    Love this top!
    I bought this top for a work party and I have found excuses to wear it all the time now. I have the blue which is a really bright and vibrant hue. I wear a cami underneath just incase the middle part is a little see through... I don't think it is because there is a backing to it, but I did catch a few glimpses of my bra so I put the cami on. I am 5'2" , 32B and I usually wear a 0P or 2P... in this case I had to order a 00P because the top was so huge and boxy. The 00P also fits better lengthwise. Happy I bought this and would recommend to a friend, I would just size down.

    Very elegant
    I love the rich colors of this blouse-- I tried on the royal blue. Although it is 100% poly, it's high-quality, I thought it was silk. Although I have sometimes had to size down with Maeve designs, my regular size 6 worked better than the 4; which gaped between buttons at the upper chest level; for ref. 5'8", 135 lbs, 34-B. The lace is solid and adds a beautiful vertical dance to the whole piece.

    Crescent Street Button-down
    Ordered this blouse in blue after trying on and seeing the red in store. The red is quite dull, but the blue is beautiful. I went a size up with this shirt due to the tightness of the sleeves. I usually wear a 0 in Maeve shirts, but bought the 2 and it is much more comfortable. Overall, I am happy with this purchase.

    I bought this in the cream and it is absolutely beautiful! I am 5'6.5" and have a short torso and long legs. It looks great with leggings-Size 6 which is my typical size fit perfect and armholes were not too big. Can wear a regular bra with this and not too low cut. I am a 36C. I am considering buying it in black also. Can wear in summer or in winter with a cardigan-leggings and boots. So happy :) with Sale price!! Very nice quality fabric and has a light lining. Can still see through in stomach area but not enough to bother me have to wear a cami under.

    Beautiful, well constructed and flattering
    Love this top it was even prettier in person. Yes, it's slightly see through but it doesn't bother me. Paired it with some cute skinny jeans and flats. Fit is perfect for a petite gal.
