Rated 5 out of 5┬áby thinkingincolor Perfect spring/summer blouse!
This blouse is just beautiful. It is a true cobalt blue and a very soft cotton. You don't have to wear a cami under it but if you lift your arms, it shows belly through the holes at the bottom. I wore a yellow cami under it and it peaked out of the holes at the bottom. I would be fine wearing it w/o a cami though. I got tons of compliments on it. A perfect spring/summer blouse! For reference, I am always a 0 and took this in a 0. One note-it is a little tight-ish in the underarm area but doesn't really matter. I have muscle-y arms and it doesn't bother me. The PS said she bought it one size up to combat that problem.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby KitkatTX Gorgeous Peasant Blouse; Runs Large
The color of this beautiful blouse is listed as navy, but it is really more of an azure blue (per the title), though not quite as bright as the product shots. The title describes it as eyelet, but the embellishment is actually cutwork. The cutwork on the sleeves and bottom edge is delicate, so be careful when trying on (especially with jewelry).
As for sizing, it runs a little large. I am usually a small/size 6 in Anthro tops and blouses, and I purchased a size 4. For reference, I am a 36B and the size 4 measurements are as follows:
Bust (armpit to armpit): 18"
Length (back of neck to hem): 28"
The care instructions recommend dry clean only, which I will do to preserve the color and fabric finish.
To balance the fullness, pair it with a narrow bottom. Looks fabulous paired with Pilcro's Stet Slim Crops in Peach topped with the Bold Hues Infinity Scarf.
Very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby OddTree Maternity wear
Beautiful, bold color, and the hem is amazing (and predictably fragile)-- but what no one has mentioned is that this blouse is HUGE. I wear a size 12 and tried on an 8, and could probably go down to a 6 (might be some trouble at the arms), but I did not like the look of even the 8. There's a seam across the chest and the rest of the material just falls below like a bag, so it is very shapeless. There's no good way to belt it, either, because of how it would affect the work at the hem and the length. What a pity, the blouse is pretty but I don't want to look like a tent.
