Rated 4 out of 5Â by FreePeoplePerson A good basic!
I tend to be a huge fan of Bordeaux. If I find a casual tee or knit at Anthro that I fall in love with, I'm never surprised it's by Bordeaux.
This isn't an exception. This is a great little tee that is floaty and flattering and forgiving (won't cling to bumps or a muffin top if you have one!) The sleeves are kind of a hybrid of short and cap sleeve style so it's flattering.
The colors are great, they wash well without pilling and they would be a true 5 star item except (oh,come on, you knew it was too good to be true!) they are a bit sheer. In sunlight, you can absolutely see through ALL the colors especially at the bust area.
It's disconcerting to be looking in the mirror at an uplight department store or in direct sunlight and see the outline of your bra or worse. Personally, I like to wear a t-shirt without a base layer and just with a nude bra, and I don't want that bra to be visible with a light source from above.
That's the only reason this top doesn't get a full 5 stars from me. If you can live with it, by all means, snap these up in multiple colors. If you have an issue with showing the world the front of your bra on a sunny day.....opt for a thicker fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Berlin Didn't work for me
I bought this hoping it would be a short-sleeved version of Bordeaux's early Raglan Pocket Long-sleeve Tee, which I love. Unfortunately I ended up sending this one back. While I love the soft slinky fabric and the drapey fit, I found it hit me at an awkward spot on the hips. Because the hem curves up on each side this only made my hips look bigger and the overall look was not flattering. Might work better on shorter ladies (I'm 5'8" with a long torso).

Â by AnnVeal Super soft but big
I tried this tee on in my usual S (5'6", 133lbs, 32D-28-38), and ended up sizing down to an XS. I know its meant to be loose and drapey, but it was also super long, and the smaller size helped a little with that. The V neck is not too revealing, even with the bigger size. It is insanely soft. The blue color wasn't see through, but there weren't any other colors at my store so I don't know about the others. I want one in every color!
