Rated 3 out of 5┬áby BWeaves 1. I'm 5'5" tall, 136 lbs, and 36D-31-40 and I'm normally a size Medium in Anthro tops. This top was too small in a Medium. It was tight in the shoulders and under the arms and across the chest. It was find in the hips, but I didn't like the extra scallop of fabric on the sides. It stuck out funny.
2. The prints are cute, but the fabric is very thin. This is to accommodate the ruching on sleeves, but just doesn't work for the rest of the top.
3. The shoulders reminded me of baby's t-shirts. I decided that it wasn't a good look for a 50 year old and decided not to try the large in these. It's a shame, because I loved the tea cups.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby AC Very cute patterns. Snug fit and a bit stiff.
I purchased the pink/red bird pattern which was selling out very quickly. I take an XL in all the tees of this style (like the Here & There graphic and solid tees) that Anthro's been making. This one is definitely snugger than the others, especially in the bust and shoulders. I would have sized up if there was a larger size. I did find it a bit stiff, but the pattern is so darn cute that I will wear it over a Spanx tank to prevent bulging and help it fit a little better. The quality feels just a bit lower than the previous tees this season, so I'm going to be very careful laundering this. Would definitely consider another pattern if it makes it to sale with any left in my size. Recommended with reservations (about fit and quality).

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby busylady Why did I wait so long!
I have been eyeing the variations of this top for a year or so now, wondering if animal and what-not prints would look silly on a woman in her mid-30s. I finally broke down and tried on the navy-blue-teacup shirt. Immediately I questioned why I had waited so long.
The fit and cut were very flattering ... making me look slim and curvy at the same time (a miracle!). I tried on both the XS and the S (I am usually an XS) and I could have gotten away with either, but I decided on the Small as it was a bit less clingy, was more appropriate for work, was a bit longer and would be more forgiving on days when I maybe ate a bit too much. When I tried it on I was wearing a white bra and it definitely showed, but when I wore it for the first time with a flesh tone bra it wasn't too sheer. I am not sure if that would be the same or not for a shirt in a lighter colour.
I am planning to go back and get one in another colour for sure.
