This tank is a wonderfully versatile piece. It is also delicate, yet opaque enough that I've been able to wear different colors of bras underneath without color show-through (except at the straps, which are lacy and therefore, somewhat transparent).
The layered frills at the hem of the shirt make this a nice tunic length for some modesty around the derriere (so that means yoga pants and leggings won't be so revealing). I sized up to a Small and normally wear XS, but didn't want something skin-tight. I would say that this garment runs true to size.
The only feature I wasn't overly excited about was the thin elastic band that divides the tulle ruffles from the cotton torso of the tank (basically, the "hem" of the shirt above the ruffles). This elastic is actually functional and squeezes JUST a tad. That being said, the elastic causes the tank to ride up a bit during wear.
This, in combination with the tank's tunic length, don't allow the shirt to lie perfectly flat if you're wearing jeans or pants that don't have flat features (i.e. botton plackets, waistbands, belts, and belt loops might stick out).
I mention this as an issue because as a woman, this is an area where I would least like to see bumps, lumps, and wrinkles.
I still love this shirt and find its versatility and feminine lines to be more flattering than not.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Quina Perfect & So Comfy!
I was so surprised at how fast this top went on sale, I've been eyeing for it awhile but couldn't justify the MSRP. As soon as I saw it in the sale rack in-store, I couldn't resist trying it on. I tried on the S since XS was sold out, but it was a bit too big for me. I am very slender and about 5'6'', the sides felt loose rather than snug like shown on the model. However, the material was soft, comfortable and it looked adorable with dark gray leggings. The lacy trim along the hem makes it look like a dress, literally (oh how do I really wish it was)!
I loved this top so much, that I did not hesitate to order my size here on Anthro.com. I definitely recommend this adorable top to anyone, friends, family, even you. The sale price is SO good right now, that I would recommend digging in. I look forward to layering it with my other clothes as soon as my order comes here. Thank you Anthro, you guys rock!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by peagan cute but stretches
I love that this tank has the lace bottom. It's so unique, and it's definitely one of those statement pieces that can spice up any outfit. What I didn't like was that it was kind of sheer on top, so I don't think I would be comfortable wearing this as a tank-dress with leggings or something. The tank part's fabric is also very stretchy, and I was afraid that it would stretch out and end up being longer than when I originally posted it (does that make sense??). I ended up returning this tank for something else from Anthro (and bc I'm on a budget), but I would recommend this tank to other ladies, because it is very aesthetically interesting and delicate!
