Rated 4 out of 5Â by suzy29 Flattering top
I tried this on in the store and have to admit it looks MUCH better in the store than on here. I think this picture is very misleading about what the top actually looks and fits like. Colors are a lot more vibrant and the neck line is significantly lower. Definitely shows off cleavage - esp. if you don't have much to show (hah). I purchased the XS and I am 5'1 34a. The material fits and feels really great on. The only problem I have with it (my boyfriend thought was weird too) was the bottom flares out a little bit too much. The proportions are weird - the top being so fitted and the bottom being too flared, just looks kind of funny.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by NCGirl Peplum FLARE
Admittedly, I am not a big fan of peplum tops. I was shopping with a friend and she suggested this one for me. It was surprisingly small - I am often an XS in tops and this was pretty tight. Overall, I felt like I was wearing a super-shrunken ice skater costume. The chevron stripes on the top portion were flattering, but the peplum flared out so much, I kept trying to pat it down to keep it under control. The material is pretty thick, which could be a pro or a con, depending on your climate. I didn't really like the pattern in person - something about the way it was printed on the fabric looked a little cheap to me. Overall, just not my taste at all.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DevonNicole Super fitted, a little on the sexy side :)
The online pics do not do the colors in this top justice: had I been shopping online, I would have passed it over based upon these pics, which make it look kinda blah. However, I spotted this top in the actual store right away. The bright teal-ish-turquoisey-blue stripes are right up my alley, and I liked how the wine/rose colors softened the look of the top up. I did not expect the top to be so fitted or so cleavage-revealing; but I LOVED it. (If you aren't a va-va-voom kinda gal then you could always pop a cami underneath, as the neckline is quite plunging!) Great option for a shorter torso or curvier girl if you want to show off your figure: super fitted in the waist and flares out dramatically. For reference, I am just under 5'3", size 6, 34D, petite arms and shoulders, and my usual small fit perfectly.
