Â by GeoInCalifornia Beautiful Fit! Inconsistant sizing!
I couldn't decide which color I needed the most, so I ordered all three colors in size regular/medium. The order was fulfilled from a store. I plan to wear these to work in a cold office. The heavy fabric and Poly content would not be suitable outdoors on a hot day.
SIZE: I'm 5'5" tall, 140 lbs, 36-30-37, 34D to DD, narrow across shoulders. I usually wear a small or size 6 in Anthro Brand Postmark. For Non Anthro brand tops I wear a medium. Most tops that fit me through the bust will be too big through the torso. I went with size medium because of this issue.
FIT: Sizing is inconsistant. The red and white tops fit loose through the torso and wide across the shoulders. The black top fit like a perfect comfortable glove. All three showed a little cleavage. This is a common issue for me because I'm short from shoulder to top of bust. If I bent over, the red and white tops pulled away at the neckline and could allow for a free show. For me the snug fit in black was best. All three tops were longer than I would have liked.
BODY TYPE: If you have a smaller bust you could go with your usual Anthro size for tops. If you are hourglass you may have to size up to fit both bust and hips. I have seen this top on hourglass, and it shows off a small waist in a dramatic way.
STRETCH: These tops have plenty of stretch, but may not rebound until washed. I machine washed the white top in a delicates bag and hung to dry. It's possible someone had tried this top on and it had stretched out. When I put it on the next day, it was still wide across the shoulders, but the torso and hemline were no longer stretched out. I'm hoping for the same outcome for the red top.
A nude bra worked fine for the white top. I didn't see the sheerness like some reviewers reported.
FABRIC: Since the blend is mostly cotton, and the fit so fantastic, I'm allowing Poly to slide for once. The thick fabric has a nubby texture that is a bit rough, but will hold up against small bumps and rolls but not all.
Dealing with sizing inconsistency from a no Anthro zone is a hassle. Size small would likely have inconsistencies too, and might pull across the big girls. Iâ€™m going with all three colors in size medium.
This top deserves 5 stars despite the sizing issues. It will be easier to find your best fit in store. If you are ordering online, I suggest your usual Anthro size and one size up. At this price the construction is impeccable. A little embellishment could turn this into an Anthro classic.

This shirt is pretty amazing. It has a great, structured fit that hides any bumps. It also enhances the chest area. I'm a small B cup, and this definitely adds a little volume in that area. The arms also plenty of movement, so it's not a constricting fit at all.
It looks good tucked in or worn out.
I'm usually between a small and an extra small, and I went with the small in this one. I'd say size up if you want it to be work appropriate.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by quetscha Structured fit, wardrobe staple
It's not much to look at at first, but this tee is a great staple, the princess seaming (with tone on tone stitch detail) gives it a structured fit that works for a lot of outfits - tucked in for an A line skirt, untucked for a cropped pant. I like that it skims the hips and does not pouf out like a peplum cut.
The materials is very nice, thick with a slightly nubby texture, and with enough stretch to be comfortable but not so much that it'll lose shape quickly. The colors are nice, especially the orange-red which is very saturated and gorgeous.
Fit wise it is TTS. I'm usually between a 4-6 in anthro sizes and the small fit perfectly.
