Rated 3 out of 5 by Anthro4Angie Pretty top, but might not work if you have large breasts or broad shoulders. The lace does not stretch. If you have large breasts or broad shoulders the lace will not lay flat across your chest it will flip up. Nice design if you can fit it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kollie Nice look, but tight on top
Depending on your upper body, this top will either work or it won't. The lace doesn't give much, so if you have broad shoulders and a big chest, it won't fit or look right. Otherwise, it's true to size (per the striped jersey bit)...I'm 34C in the bust and usually wear Medium in tops. The burnt sienna makes the mixed textiles more prominent. Love it and good price for the quality and uniqueness of the design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KitkatTX Pretty Fall Transition Top
I spied this online and knew I had to have it for fall. I purchased the grey motif, and I love the mix of sporty grey stripes and delicate rust lace. I am a redhead and will tell you that the colors are very complementary to my coloring.
I'm a small in Deletta tops and this runs true to size. I thought about sizing down to an XS because the body of the pullover seemed a bit full. Elizabeth, the fabulous SA at my local Anthro, suggested I stick with the S, since the lace would have been been too tight through the shoulders and under my arms and, as mentioned by a previous reviewer, the lace medallions across the bust would not have laid flat (I'm a 36B). This is not meant to be a top which hugs the body, but rather is more of an easy and relaxed fit.
This is a great fall transition piece which looks great with skinny denim and, as suggested by Anthro's description, layered under a chunky cardi when temps start to fall.
Very pleased with my purchase!!
