Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs very small in the waist! I'm a Size 12 in tops at Anthro, have an hourglass figure (so my waist is actually quite small for my size), but this top doesn't fit around the waist in the Size L. The bottom button strains and is very tight, while the rest of the buttons and torso fit fine. You can even see the button and waistband straining in a couple of the model pics! I would argue they've made the waist on this top too small for the average figure - as I said, my waist is proportionally small for my size (11" smaller than my hips) and it still doesn't fit. I will see if I can get a tailor to let out some fabric somewhere, or expand the placket/button band area somehow to make this fit. Otherwise, the print is lovely and the design/cut is very nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Super Small even for the Short Waisted This shirt could never be worn as shown on the model. This shirt barely fits my natural waist. It could never be worn around the hips. With that aside, it could be worn with a cami to prevent your stomach from showing, or if paired with high waisted pants you could also alleviate this problem. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to keep the shirt. I'll have to see if I can style it without it looking awkward. January 25, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Only for very tiny waistlines Wow - not sure what happened with this one! The fabric is really nice, but the fit in the waist is so far off it is not possible to even re-work it for me. For reference I am 5'3", 134 lbs. with curves but usually have no problem as I have a decent hourglass shape - it made no difference on this one. I could not even button the small in the waist it was so tight. There was plenty of space eveywhere else, but I can't fathom what they were thinking. I even tried adjusting the waist up and down but to no avail. Back it goes! January 27, 2013

YELLOW Style #:25692930 New York-based designer Samantha Pleet was inspired by the symbolism and mythology of Renaissance and Romantic paintings when designing her second Made in Kind collection, named Treasure. Relying on a vibrant color palette, graphic prints and a variety of soft, sueded and sheer fabrics, Treasure is at once timeless and modern, fluid and structured, painterly and practical. A study in shape, a classic collar is a surprising counterpoint to the top's fluttery kimono sleeves. Amapolas Peplum Blouse
