Rated 4 out of 5 by TaylorKitCat Sadly, a total miss for me.
This top is so cute, but a TOTAL miss for my body type. That being written, I rated it well (4 stars each for design and quality because, although it does not work for me, it is super-cute and the quality seems good). With that written, being forced to choose, I chose "No" for "Do you recommend this product?" because I do NOT think this top will work for the average woman.
On me, this top was utterly unflattering. As reference I am 5'8", 145 pounds, and I normally wear a size 4 in pants, a M in tops, and I have a 34B chest, and I was busting out of the L: it was skintight across my shoulders, and skintight in my biceps. The bottom of the shirt grazed just below my belly button, and made me look like I had a DD chest. It was just wrong in every way imaginable. Now, in fairness, I do have a long torso, and my shoulders are broad and my arms are very muscular. But this shirt looked like I had put on an XS. Seriously, I did a double take when I took it off to make sure the price tag size matched the label size.
All in all: the top is super soft, and the sewing, the seams and fabric seem to be good quality. But you need to have an all-round petite frame: a short torso, a small chest, shoulders that are narrow, and very small arms to pull this off (as an aside knowing how this fit me and knowing as a model she is probably around 5'9" or taller, I shudder to think how incredibly thin this online model must be in order to have the shirt "hang" on her the way it does).

I bought this in black in my usual size large. It has a flattering neckline and the fabric they used, a light cotton sweatshirt type fabric, is the perfect weight because the sleeves don't poof out too much, which they would if it was a stiffer fabric. I love the lantern sleeves, and I wouldn't have minded this top being an inch or two longer.
I am getting the gray too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chicmama Another adorable top from Anthro!
The top is very cozy with great style. I love the bell sleeves. It is slightly boxy in a good way. There are slits on either side
which you can't see in the picture. I am petite and purchased the XS which runs TTS. I can see where this may be too
short for taller ladies as it is cropped.
