┬áby kristay Sizes vary, but very cute top!
I love this top! It is so super comfy and soft and quite warm. I love that the cowlneck can be shaped in different ways, including the styling on the model and one shoulder. I've worn it outside off the shoulder and when night hit and it got a bit chilly, I just rolled the neckline up a bit for more coverage. I've worn the top about five times now and it has held up nicely.
To a certain extent, I agree with many of the negative reviews saying that this top is too large. However, I ended up trying multiple size XS in the black version because the first one I tried on fit much larger than the light grey XS version. Had I not tried on the light grey one, I probably would not have noticed and just assumed that yes, it does run large. Eventually, the SA found a black XS that fit properly (and the same as the light grey). It was really quite odd because the first black XS was HUGE, with a particularly large cowlneck that I could fold over my head for a true hood...Although I found the top to be a bit on the large size for my frame (5'5", 100lbs), it seemed true-to-size for most Anthro brands.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby BBUSR Too much of a good thing
First, the good: the fabric of this top is fantastic. Super soft and is like a jersey blanket that you'd want to wrap yourself in for an entire day. Unfortunately, the cut is much like a blanket as well... pretty shapeless. I'm 5'7", 34b-26-34 and the small fit me like a moo-moo; just awfully big and tent-like. I can't imagine the XS being small enough to make that much of a difference so I passed on this top altogether.
Again, the fabric is beautiful and it certainly looks like it might have a lot of potential for someone who's willing to spend the time and money to have it tailored, but it wasn't something I was willing to do.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby JulesK Lovely but HUGE!
I have an open cardigan from Bordeaux from several years ago made from the same material, and love it so much! So it was a no-brainer for me to try this on...it is really lovely, but runs very oversized! I normally wear a large in most brands, and I know that sizing ranges immensely within the brands at Anthro...but be warned that if you're tiny then you will be sized out in this one! I ended up with a size small, although xs also worked on me. The first time I wore it, it snagged, and I'm VERY careful with clothing, so I exchanged it...let's hope it holds up to wearing because it is a lovely top!
