Rated 4 out of 5 by Surprisingly flattering on me I agree with reviewer Kosta that this top will flatter ladies with straighter shapes (like me), but may not be so great on bustier ladies. The material, indicated on the tag as "100% cotton", is slightly stiff on top with a velveteen texture, so it may over-emphasize curvier chests. The bottom skirt portion is a thinner cotton with no lining, almost linen-like in texture. I recommend washing it with a fabric softener first. The colours on this were brighter than i had expected and at first, i was worried that it'd make my asian skin look sallow. Surprisingly, this colour looked livelier and prettier on me than the Cherry Ash version. The hems and trims are all done with a bit of a raw, unfinished look, which i think is a nice & edgy contrast to the tailored shape of the top. The bottom trim ha silver threads running diagonally across the material, which is not obvious in the model shots. Overall, i'm happy that i took the chance to buy this top even though there were no reviews then. I'm 5'4, 34B, 126 lbs, usually a size 4 in anthro tops, and the size 4 for this top fit great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Not for all body types This top is well made, but colors on the web site appear lighter then they are in real life (at least on my monitor). It is definitely not flattering on all body types. If you have hourglass figure this top will accentuate your curves even more. I imagine it would look very pretty on a straight body type, creating an illusion of curves. If you are busty stay away. January 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Score! I had admired the Gregory collection from its initial introduction at Anthro, but shied away because of price and some reviews. I was delighted to find this top on the sale rack of my local Anthro. While the colors are certainly bright, the top is charming. With its peplum detail it is a great modern take on a 70s vintage print. I love it! It is flattering on my long torso, which is often a concern for me. I paired it with the yellow scalloped trim cardigan at Anthro and a pair of jeans. It looks incredible. I would highly recommend this top. At $9.95, it's a steal! April 10, 2013
