Rated 3 out of 5Â by reneew Pro: Fabric Con: Fit
The fabric is lovely. The blouse is soft and sheer (you will need a cami), but the fit is the issue. I am a 34D. I have a short waist and broad shoulders. In a top with some volume, I can usually wear an 8 at Anthro. However, I had to size up to a 12 and the chest still was tight. It pulled in the area with the darts, and so the front of the top did not lay correctly. It appeared "tight" even though it was only pulling in the center of the upper chest (below the band of solid fabric). Of course, the rest of the top was too big in the larger sizes, so I had to pass on this one. If you are smaller chested and not broad shouldered, I imagine that this would fit TTS. For those of us with a chest, though, this is a pass.

This is a gorgeous blouse- the color combination is stunning and the bird print is classic Anthro! But getting the correct fit will be a bit of a challenge for many. If you have any curves on top to speak of, the blouse will likely pull across your chest in an unflattering way. This blouse was also on display on a dress form at my local store, and this tight chest issue was evident even on the mannequin. If you are very small on top, it may work fine for you. Another issue I have is the sheerness of the blouse with no under layer provided at this price point. Either sell this with a simple cami or lining or reduce the price point on completely sheer garments such as this.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by 0009 Lovely but hit or miss on print placement
This is a lovely print, however, the print placement varies from blouse to blouse and I could never find a blouse that had the bird placement similar to the model (I tried on 4 different tops) All the blouses I tried on in the store either had the bird's head cut off at the neckline, or it had a bright red bird right smack-dab on top of the breast area--I could just picture everyone's eye being drawn to the red bird. I agree with the other reviewers that you may need to size up, it does pull a bit across the chest (34C). This is also a very delicate fabric and I was a bit worried about snags.
