Rated 5 out of 5 by GeoInCalifornia Recommended! TTS! Long straps!
This top would be flattering on almost any body shape.
SIZE: I wear a Small in most Anthro brand tops. I usually wear a Medium in Ganni. I ordered a Medium from online. I'm 5'5" tall, 135 lbs, 34D, 35-28-36, narrow across the shoulders.
FIT: This is a very stretchy pullover. The Medium fit loose through the torso, but the chest was spot on. I would size down to my normal size small for Anthro next time around. The straps are too long so the side of my bra showed to the front of the arm hole. See attached photos. Even though I am narrow through the shoulders the straps did not slide down. The peplum is not too poofy and the length works with both pants and pencil skirts. I was careful about the placement of my bra straps, so there was no show from the back.
FABRIC: This cotton/elastane top is machine wash, hang dry. There is a a lot of give in the fabric in all directions. The fabric weight is substantial enough so that problem areas are not brought to attention. Ie. my small spare at the waist. The product shots make the Ivory color appear white, but it definitely isn't.
This top is a sale buy for me because I can't wear this to work without a sweater over top. I tried several short cardigans and wasn't particularly pleased with the look. I would re-order in a Small and take the long straps up at the shoulders.
Recommended. Sizing is TTS, but may run tight for busty gals larger than D cup. In that case size up. If you are petite or even average in height the straps may be too long, the neckline too low, and the top of the peplum may hit too low. If over 5'9" the top of the peplum and overall length may be too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackie717 Love it in white
I ordered this top in white and absolutely LOVE it, so when I went to the store I looked for the other colors. I tried it on in pink and I wasn't nearly as thrilled with it. Something about the white is just so classic, and this didn't really transfer in the other colors. My one gripe though is that sometimes my bra shows on the sides in the front.

The other great reviews for this top sparked me to even try this on. And in ivory, a color that usually looks terrible with my pale skin!
I have an hourglass figure and a longer torso. My measurements are 32D-26-36. I tried the Small and it fits magnificently TTS.
No zipper, but the fabric stretches enough to let you in, and then goes back to its original shape once on. Kind of like those silly bandz things my little cousins had.
The shape is to die for. It slims the waist and then goes out without adding bulk. It's very figure-flattering for something so modern and unique.
As for length, it's pretty spot on. When I lifted my arms all the way up, you could see the smallest section of my tummy, but not nearly enough to make me skip this. Again, I do have a long torso for my height (5'4"). I probably could've done the Extra Small, but length would almost certainly be an issue with a size down.
I like to wait for sales, but I would be heartbroken if I missed out on this top. My thoughts? Skinny jeans and flats, or a pencil skirt with heels. I tried it with a cropped cardi and thought it looked weird. Still an amazing piece!
