Rated 5 out of 5Â by mccormicky Really Very Pleased
Another reviewer had made the point that this top/dress ran large so I took a leap of faith and bought a size down from what I usually wear, extra large. I'm glad I took that reviewer's advice! I'm happy to have the large fit the way it does on the model in the photo: the sleeves and hem hit me exactly where they should. So yeah - this tunic does run large because this exact right fit is not usual for me. I'm not even that tall! Only 5' 7" so either most designers are making clothes for petite midgets or I'm actually 6 foot and really messed up with the tape measure.
The only con I can think of is if you don't wear a tank under it and you don't keep the ties tied people are going to get a nice look at your cleavage.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dlight I feel SO good and pretty in this
I am 5'9", and wear a 38C, and in general a size 14. Lately my bottoms are tight, and I havent been feeling that hot, but I'm working on it. I ordered a L based on the other reviews and it is absolutely a perfect fit. The neckline and shoulder detail are so feminine and flattering, which is hard to find in a loose fitting top.
It is just so pretty in person. The color is richer and more gorgeous. It is a tough color to find, and one I really love - deep peacock/teal, not murky - suits my complexion and reddish hair. Fabric is so so soft and drapey, plenty of room around the tummy and hips, but doesn't look sloppy. Also not sheer or even semi , which I totally appreciate. I feel like the vertical lines of the embroidery and the larger motifs are super flattering - I was worried they would be in odd places but they're not, at least to me.
I totally feel sexy bohemian! Will dress it up for work with skinny dark pants, some cool jewelry and ankle booties - for casual leggings and flats. I want a hundred of this kind of top! If it were longer as a dress I would take that too! One wish: POCKETS. A girl can dream...

Rated 4 out of 5Â by no1anthroaddict Beautiful, HUGE!
This is a beautiful tunic - love the rich teal color; beautiful, intricate embroidery and beading. Love the sleeves - this is a lover of Bohemian style's dream! Alas, it is like HUGE! I am normally a Large at Anthro; when I saw that this blouse came in Extra Large, I figured I probably needed a Medium (that seems to be the case for me with most things there that offer an Extra Large; I am really more of a Medium in that style.) Got the Medium, and it is absolutely HUGE - just swallows me yet actually makes me look bigger than I am! It is SUCH a pretty top that I am hoping to find it in a Small at my local Anthro and just exchange it! Looked really cute with jeans, and for even shorter gals than myself, it would make a cute mini dress with some tights later on! Really pretty!
