I'm having a bit of a weight issue lately so much of what Anthro has is not really for the bust and the hips! That said, I am 5.8", 202, 38DD, and the Largefits perfectly. I wear it with a longer black silk tank that sort of ruffles on the bottom. Looks great with skinny jeans and capris. Was an "impulse" buy at checkout. V. happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RachDC black motif is actually dark navy
Purchased this the moment my local anthro got it in and received several compliments the day I wore it, planning to go back and get other one too! Very comfortable, fit TTS and is quite flattering as it falls along your curves w/o hugging them. I have the one called "black motif", but it's not black, it's a dark navy - or at least I wore mine w/what I know for sure are navy pants and it matched perfectly!
I tend to have a difficult time finding sweaters w/long enough sleeves (for ref I'm only 5'6", but it's a reoccuring challenge), these are long but not so long that I need to cuff them, perfect. The fabric on the front is sheer, but not see through at all so no need to wear a cami (but probably skip a red bra - go for nude to be on safe side :)
Looks cute w/a collar necklace!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snger123 Nothing beats silk
I'm enjoying the lean towards perky florals in long-sleeved winter-tops, this year. Kind of like finding a bouquet on a hanger. Of all the floral winter tops I tried in my favorite store recently, this lovely print is the one that I brought home. The floral front is 100% silk, not polyester like the others I tried. It's also a bit more form-filtting, which I prefer. The sleeves & back are made of 55% cotton, 45% nylon/viscose, which gives a breathable stretch. The colors are vivid and clear (I recognize carnations, roses, poppies...# The black background keeps the party from getting out-of-hand.
I will say that on a cold winter day, the front is a bit breezy #I wore it today without a cami underneath#. But I like the fact that I have options: with or without layers, unlike some see-thru tops. The Meduim size was a bit too loose for me, but the Small was just right #for reference, I am 5'8", 140 lbs, 34-B). With this great long-sleeved combo of silk and cotton, it's possible to have both light and warmth in the Winter season, with style.
