Rated 5 out of 5Â by BarbnearChicago Delicate knit pullover is made in the USA
I bought this pullover in the mint color. The fabric is a soft knit of polyester and spandex and made in the USA (the Look Book says it is imported). This top fits TTS; my bust measure is 35.25" and I bought a Small. It fits well, the way I want it to fit which is not as loose as the model wears hers. I tried a medium as well and it fit more like the model, so if you want flowy perhaps size up.
This top is very delicate. It will pull very easily so make sure to put on your jewelry after you dress. The SA was folding the top after I purchased it and it snagged on her necklace. We found another small which I checked over very carefully for snags. Because of the delicacy, I bought it now at full price rather than wait for sale. I am afraid they will all be snagged/shopworn by the time it makes it to sale. Besides, I want to support USA-made products so I will pay more for that reason.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by TaylorKitCat Cute and slinky sweater-hybrid
This is a really cute, lightweight sweater/shirt hybrid. I cannot write in regards to the "Mint" version, but the Black & White version is most definitely semi-sheer; I could see my bra through it.
I am very broad shouldered and have large arms, and my usual M fit just fine, albeit keep in mind this "look" is supposed to be a little roomy. If you are petite and small-framed and want this to be a little more fitted, I would recommend sizing DOWN a size.
The material is very slinky feeling; think mesh. Feels great against the skin, especially in these hot months. The issue for me - at least with the black & white version - is that although it will work just fine with a camisole, I don't think it will work with an actual shirt underneath it because the material is so clingy. So the best options IMO for wearing it with the B&W color would be a bra you WANT to show off, a camisole, or wearing this over a spaghetti strap style maxi dress.
As other reviewers have pointed out, this shirt is prone to snagging, so I would recommend hand-washing or using a garment bag and putting on jewelry AFTER you've put the top on, and taking it off BEFORE you take it off.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by kharmasti Beautiful motif! Snag prone + Polyester :(
What I loved: Fit + Motif/Colors
I'm usually a Size S/M, and took the Small size. The top is boxy, but lightweight so it moves with your body. I have a bust of 37" or a 30G bra, broad shoulders, and a smallish waist. Usually boxy tops look extra body on my shoulers/bust, but because this is a light fabric, this looked perfect. Also, what an amazing combination of colors! The mint and peach and earthy tones are gorgeous, and will go with a variety of skin tones.
What I didn't love: Polyester + Fabric quality + Snag prone
I'm a bit of a polyester snob so I was disappointed to check the fabric tag, and am still on the fence about this top despite its beauty. Also the polyester knit does make it look a bit cheap, or like something a teenager might wear. This design on cotton or linen would have been perfect and looked high quality. The knit is also highly snag prone, so I'm highly doubtful of the longevity of this top. Several pieces on the rack had loose threads so carefully inspect your preferred top before you take it home!
