Rated 4 out of 5Â by GingerGirl CUTE!
Tried this on today as it's SO cute in person! I am usually either an XS or a S. I tried on the Small, and the arms were really really tight (which I usually don't have issues with), and the fabric doesn't have any stretch in it. I don't know how the model's arms look so baggy and how she even got the arms to bunch up?!? Things that make you go hmmmm...perhaps they would stretch out after wearing it for a bit?
The lace is more of a white color while the sweatshirt portion is like a dirty ivory color. I think it looks fine together, but I do know that sort of thing can bother some people ; ) The lace is a woven cotton and a little stiff. Perhaps it would soften once washed?
The length is great and makes it a tunic and flows over the hips nicely and I was wearing skinny jeans underneath. The bow at the back neck makes it even more special.
For your reference I am a 32D (35" bust), 27" waist, 38" hip and 5'9" tall.

This top is a truly unique, and casually shabby chic! I love pairing it with skinny jeans and rugged tall boots, but as noted by other reviewers, the sleeves are oddly snug with barely any give. It's wearable and fit just enough to justify keeping, but the bodice; although equally unforgiving on stretch, fits marginally true to size. The top part reminds me of potato sack material...burlap-ish. Keep that in mind when ordering online. This is one I would try on in the store before purchasing as the material is just so ridged and sturdy. Overall, I simply love the way it wears and it's mix of comfortable sophistication.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jantco Anthro adorableness
Yes, I'm a sucker for lace and stripes, so I had to have this. And I'm so glad I did! I noticed a review that said this was boxy, and I totally don't find that to be the case on me. Just under 5'5", 125 lbs, the Small fits great. The arms are a tiny bit tight when you first put it on...I don't have stick arms & I don't have large arms...pretty average. Length is great with skinny jeans & goes with every color. You absolutely have to try this on, though. The first I tried on was sewn incorrectly. One side of the lace stuck out (the side seam wasn't sewn straight, but rather in a huge "C") which made just one hip/thigh look huge. The next one's hem on the striped material was unraveling. The salesperson tried to tell me it was a 'raw edge' hem which absolutely is not the case; it was the only one like that. Third one's the charm & it was perfect. Comfy, cute, unique; all the Anthro qualities you want. But definitely check the quality.
