Rated 3 out of 5 by Misleading photo I was so torn about whether to keep this top. I got it in the neutral motif and absolutely loved the pattern and feel of the fabric, which didn't bother me for being lightweight. But the top just hung on me shapelessly. I don't think the photo on Anthro's site provides an accurate portrayal of how the top will drape on you if you're slender. It has more the fit of my old, baggy sweatshirt. That is, don't expect to have the waist narrow even slightly as it appears to on the model. See the Splendid website for how it will actually drape. In the end, as much as I wanted to keep it for the beautiful fairisle, I returned it. If only Splendid could also offer a scarf or pajama shorts in this fabric, it'd be an instant favorite of mine. But I knew, as comfortable as the top was, it just wasn't flattering enough. A pity, as the fabric has so much potential. By the way, this top runs large. (The Anthro scale wouldn't let me adjust the slider.) November 5, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Should have waited for the reviews I ordered this before it was reviewed. Big mistake. I completely agree with other reviewers commenting on the poor fit. It is not shaped at all so it sort of "bubbles out" at the waist. It fits like a sweatshirt, but the fabric is too thin to enable it to be used as a sweatshirt. I had envisaged it as underlayer, not an overlayer. I am a US size 4 to 6 and bought a small. I am not sure if an XS would have been better - it may have made the sleeves too tight. The small measures about 19 inches across the chest and about 18 inches across through the waist and hips. Not much shaping there. If you look at the photo, keep in mind that I am tall and have a long torso, so the "bubble effect" is not that obvious (although it is obvious in person). Probably would be more obvious on a shorter person. On the plus side, the pattern and colours are great. I am still thinking about sending it back (hard from Australia), or maybe giving it a hot wash and hoping for shrinkage... November 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Comfy and Cute!! Like other reviewers note, it is not form fitting. If you are good with that, it is adorable, super comfortable, and awesome. I got it in both colors and want to pull it out of my closet to put on every day. The material is very, very thin, which makes it good for a California winter. December 12, 2012
