Rated 4 out of 5Â by TaylorKitCat Great, light-weight Summr shirt/beach cover-up
I really like this shirt: it's super-soft and super light-weight.
Make no mistake: I agree with some of the other reviewers in the sense if you are looking for a very form-fitting shirt this might not work for you. I am pretty sure this shirt will be boxy on anyone other than woman with incredible curves. For my purposes - wearing it over a bikini top with high-wasted shorts, or with high-wasted cropped skinny jeans and a light-weight cashmere cardigan and a chunky necklace in the evenings - it is perfect.
I got my usual size M and it fits VERY roomy - but that is what I wanted. Frankly, I didn't see much of a difference - other than where the cap sleeve hit on my shoulder - when I sized down to a S. And the only other difference I felt when I tried on the XS was the bust was tighter. When you tie it in the front it DOES synch the back and provide a little definition in the waist. I think the fact that the back of the shirt is longer is an adorable detail. And while the sides of the shirt are short, they are not THAT much shorter as noted in some other reviews. And after all, the quirks of this shirt are what MAKE the shirt.
Caveat: the shirt is ridiculously soft, thin and light-weight. Prepare to do some hand-washing to keep it in good shape. But it really is an adorable, fun top for the upcoming months. Hope this helps a little!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by anthropologist size down
I thought this shirt looked cute and casual, but irl it is a little disappointing. On a positive note, the fabric is very soft. But the fit is poor, very loose and unflattering, it runs very wide. I ordered my usual size small/4 and it was huge. Perhaps I would have tried a size smaller, but the color was so drab on me that it wasn't worth while. This is a gray and creme stripe, which blends together to be a bland color tone.
Love the look on the model, but on me it was a disaster. Size down if you give this a try.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Timex Cute, crisp, lovely!
Felt like a pin-up girl! The fabric was a little thin, but soft as a worn-in favorite, with the stripes exactly as pictured. Consider sizing down if you're unsure what will fit - it is definitely a little roomier when untied. Feels like loungewear, but looks like Cape Cod in a shirt.
