I spotted this in store on a form, and loved the print. The lightweight fabric was initially appealing, though being synthetic did not breathe well. The back is very sheer, but the front is lined so no peekaboo... do with that what you will.
However, I was not such a fan of the fit on my hourglass figure. There was no gapping across the bust with my usual size 4 (32D), but the loose fit and exaggerated ruffle was not flattering over my curves. The top wanted to hang straight down, completely obscuring my bust/waist definition. I tried tucking it into both a high-waist skirt and shorts to help redefine my waist. This definitely helped, but I still just found it to be not that great on me. Would probably be lovely on someone with a straighter body type.

My style is normally nowhere near wearing a shirt that mixes patterns like this - I'm not bold enough, and I don't know how to style it. But I tried this top on, and I actually really like it. The fit is TTS (I grabbed an 8), and doesn't pull over the chest like most button down tops do on a larger chest (36DD)
The back is sheer, but I personally think you can get away with not wearing a camisole under it, because the bra is still kind of difficult to see under all of the pattern of the top. Being long sleeved and having the polyester lining, it feels like it could get warm, so this is definitely a later-season shirt.
I didn't get it because we're still experiencing 90+ degree days here in Texas, but it's something I can actually see wearing when Fall finally arrives.

I fell in love with the fabric combo on this, it seemed so Alice in Wonderland/Queen of Hearts. But sadly the silhouette just didn't work on me, I felt rather prim. It did nothing for my shape and was basically a round necked blouse with two ruffles sewn down the front. Would love to see the same fabric combo in something more flattering. Fit tts.
