Rated 4 out of 5Â by darlington Grassland Embroidered Corset
Stalked this until my local store had this in stock. Tried on an 8 and a 10 and went with the 10 for more length ( I'm long torsoed) and a little more give in the waist area. $98 is a lot for this but I couldn't wait for it to go on sale! I adore the pockets and it will look so good with dark denim and a cardie-blue or navy. The embroidery is very expensive looking and it's a great top from the spring thru the fall with the right pairings. The top was very stretchy due to the elastic back, and the pleating around the waist was just right-not too much or too little. I'd say it runs true to size, I am anywhere from an 8-12 in Anthro tops.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DenverStacy Great top..fit just wasn't right
I love the color of this top and the fact that it has pockets. It was so cute...really wanted it to work but it was just too big on top for me. Not sure I could size down because it fit perfectly thru the waist and a smaller size would most likely be too snug...although, they didn't have a smaller size. It runs big too...because I tried on a 4. I'm 5'5" 135lbs and a 34D....yes, 34D and the size 4 was still too big in the bust. There are straps that you can add to it but they don't lend much for support. It also didn't go as long as the picture shows...probably about an inch shorter. If they had had the smaller size then I would have tried it...wanted it to work. Might wishlist it and wait for a sale. Hope that helps in your decision!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Horrificat Had to buy this!
This top is the most beautiful green color. So vibrant and perfect for spring. The boning helps everything keep its shape and the peplum style helps to camoflage any tummy imperfections. I do think the top runs a little big - perhaps because of the forgiving elastic back. I am usually a size 12 or 14 but I thought the 12 was a little loose. But the detachable straps will solve that problem and keep me from constantly pulling it up.
