Rated 3 out of 5┬áby jedbird Nothing special
I ordered this shirt in blue and purple in a size M. The purple is as it appeared on my monitor; the blue, however, skewed slightly turquoise on my monitor but in actuality is just plain blue. I typically wear size M in Anthro knit tops and found this one to be a bit shorter in both overall length and sleeve length than I expected, but still wearable. As the shirt name indicates, the fabric is ribbed. It is also very lightweight and insubstantial and the shirt appears fairly cheap. I expect better from a $60 t-shirt! It's well-made--there's a nice floral stabilizing tape at the back neckline--but the flimsy fabric cancels out those nice construction details. Despite my disappointment, I will probably keep the shirts as they're serviceable basics. I will be less likely to buy "online exclusives" in the future, however; had I been able to try this shirt on in the store, I would not have purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Babykeggs Softest shirt ever!
This shirt is so soft and comfortable. I bought the light green and I 'm going to buy the pink color as well. I'm 5 ft, 6 in and 130 lbs. I love how it's a bit shorter in the front but then longer in the back. The front is about 1-2 inches shorter than your average casual knit top, which works fine for me with a longer tank top underneath. It is definitely drapier than it appears in the photo. There are extra panels of fabric on the sides, which makes it gradually become wider, beginning under the arms and ending at the bottom of the shirt, where it is widest. I think the shirt is TTS, even though it's wide/drapey. If you're looking for a fitted top this one isn't going to do it for you. This is definitely a very forgiving shirt- if you have anything to hide; no need to hold it in when wearing this one! But I definitely don't think it's frumpy. It would also be super cute on those that are thin and trim. Perfect with a pair of skinny leans. Did I mention how soft it is?! The light green color in the photo is actually quite accurate. The quality is average for Anthro knit tops- not amazing. Also, this shirt is dry clean only, which I didn't realize when I bought it. I will probably take my chances and hand wash it instead. This is a great staple for a wardrobe. This shirt is nothing fancy- not the most amazing top I've had, but I like it enough to get another!
