by Tboneia Superfluous Zip-Up
This piece is very similar to the Superfluous Bellows Hoodie that came out around the same time last year. The fit is very similar as well although I thought the Hoodie ran a bit smaller. I am typically an XS and am wearing a Small in the Rose and an XS in the Neutral. I would size up for this one. The arms are suffocatingly tight, but feel better on the larger size. They are also quite long, but can be cuffed at the wrist. The material is pretty thin so my bra lines show in the back of my TTS size. I wish the ruching went all the way around to disguise any evidence of muffin, but it doesn?t. I?m not wearing a top under this so if you want to layer more than a very thin tee it may be necessary to size up two. The length was perfect for me, but a person with a really long torso may not like this piece. My zipper did get caught on the ruching once. Having a larger bust, I'm not a fan of tops that have a line indicating where my bust should be as I usually fall a bit below it. The same thing happened with this top. I was able to tug it down, but as I walked around it rode back up. If that bothers you keep this in mind.
*This top is MUCH tighter than it appears in the pics. See, especially, the arms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BklynTX It ALMOST came home with me....
I would have snapped this up at full price had it not been for the zipper which, unless one has prefect posture, has a tendency to pucker at mid-belly (a glaring issue when sitting), negating the excellent camouflage effect of the horizontal crinkling. I found the fit very flattering for a 34B, somewhat hour-glass, NOT toned, middle aged figure at 5'5", 128lbs. (I am normally a size small/4 but sized up to a medium, in the "neutral" color, an off white, fit perfectly). In addition to the zipper issue, had a bit of a problem with the fact that the fabric is very thin, which although the front and collar are a double layer of fabric (making it very comfortable), the back is a single layer (making it see-through), as are the sleeves. (I don't mind sleeves being a single layer as long as the thickness is the same throughout the bodice.) As others have noted, size up at least once and there is little give to pull up the sleeves. Not certain how the zipper puckering could be solved as a two-way zipper would defeat the look (except one could then unzip the bottom part when when sitting, hint hint to Anthro). Otherwise, very tempting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by libbybin Another great addition to my wardrobe!
I was so excited to see this. I purchased the hoodie similar to this last year. I love the collar on this. It fits TTS, I take an XS. I purchased the pink and am also thinking of getting the cream. You can wear this casually or dress it up a bit with a nice necklace. It fits my petite frame perfectly. Another great buy!
