Rated 4 out of 5Â by BarbnearChicago Soft and lovely chemise runs very small
I tried this pretty chemise in my store today. I usually take a S or XS in this type of knit item because I am very small busted (34A). They did not have XS so I tried the S and was very surprised at the tight fit in the bust. My tiny endowment was squeezed mercilessly in the small, something that just doesn't happen! The waist fit fine and the hips are not an issue in this flowy outfit. I then tried a M and the bust was OK. I would not be able to wear a bra with it though; there just was not enough room. Braless is fine though for loungewear. The waist was looser in the M but not unsightly. I think that most ladies will have to size up at least one size to fit the bust, and maybe two sizes if you want to wear a strapless bra with it.
I hope that this helps.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Clem57 Not for anyone with a chest
Very pretty chemise - I love the pattern and details. The only problem is that the bust is cut way too small. I am a 34B, and a small was nowhere near big enough. If I pulled the top down low enough so that the bust portion actually covered the bottom of my chest, the cleavage was rather obscene. In other words, the triangles of the bust portion are not large enough to accomodate even a smaller chest size - rather like trying in a too-small bikini top. The rest of the chemise fit fine, and the length was good.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Vancouvermama Surprised!
I tried this on in my local store today and was shocked at how awesome it was. I had not read any reviews in advance until I prepared this one. I'm 5'8", 36C and have hips (like big time). Anyway, the medium fit me, and I had no issue with the chest area fitting too tight. The length was perfect - just at my knee in the front and a little longer in the back. I wore this to a barbecue tonight and had tons of compliments. It is thicker jersey type knit that hangs much better than I would have expected - the ruffle on the bottom doesn't stick out - instead it hangs far enough past my hips that it actually makes them look slimmer ( and believe me I'm always looking for that!) Again, I highly recommend - I tried it on because it was cute on the hanger!! Don't pass this one by....
