Rated 4 out of 5 by Suze SO nice to see that this is silk cotton instead of polyester! I'm normally a 6 or an 8 in Anthro blouses and while a 6 fit, I went with an 8 because the fabric does not provide stretch and the 8 allowed for more range of motion. There is gathering in the back but that is not elastic. I love that the ruffles down the front help prevent any peek-through that you can sometimes get with button-up shirts. The last button hits pretty high up though so there could be an issue with your belly showing if you move around a lot. My one major gripe is that there is a very subtle mullet... I mean... "Hi-Lo" hem. It's not super exaggerated but I am tired of seeing this style of hemline on everything! This top is pretty lightweight so I definitely think this can be an all-seasons blouse.

This blouse is so pretty and delicate. I noticed it right away in the store. I chose the blue leafy printed design. I didn't buy it in the store, but I was still thinking about it when I got home and decided to order it. I am between a 10 and 12. Glad I chose the 12. It just fits over my 34F bust. Although it's airy and comfortable it doesn't have any give really so it has to fit right unless you can size up and alter to your liking I guess. The ruffle isn't overwhelming at all and the buttons are a pretty little touch. If the buttons pulled at all the look would be ruined. The waist nips in a bit to show it off. I have a high waist and it hit just right. I agree with the other reviewer about the fabric. I'm not a fan of poly. It's too hot where I am. The silk/cotton is perfect. The design I feel is timeless and the quality is there. If taken care of it could be a lasting piece in any wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teacupsize Great versatile blouse
This is exactly the kind of blouse I come to Anthro for: pretty print (I got the blue one), check, natural materials, check, feminine flattering cut, check, attention to details, check. I found the price point reasonable.
I'm not surprised some reviewers found it ran small compared to Anthro's other offerings - while I often have issues with clothes being too big in the chest, the 0P was a perfect fit for me. I like that the hi-lo hem, which is ooh so trendy this year, is not too pronounced - I think I can wear this blouse for many years to come, especially with grey and navy.
