┬áby JulesMilo beanpoles will be sized out
I had high hopes for this tee, especially seeing it paired with the Colima Maxi Skirt but the construction was not as I had expected.
The fit is very boxy with an elastic band at the bottom. This in turn gives a balloon shape. This could be a plus for some figures (?) but didn't help for my beanpole figure. The sleeves also have elastic and kind of bunches up at the ends. The semi-wrap v-neck sits too low for comfort and a cami is necessary. A button keeps the flaps closed as you can see in the pic.
The front material is different from the back material. The tag says 60% Rayon, 40% Model and I'm not sure if the front is Rayon and the back is Model maybe?
Machine wash, lay flat to dry. Made in China.
This is a hit or miss, but definitely try it on before saying no.
For reference, I'm 5'5", 100lbs, 34A and 25 in jeans and I tried on a XS.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby lipstick2012 Disappointing...
I like this blouse. The material is soft and flowy. My favorite part of this blouse are the sleeves. Love the design. For me, the major flaw is the elastic at the hem. It was not advertised that the hem had an elastic band (misleading advertisement). As a result, the blouse does not sit flat at the bottom...and sticks out at the hips. This is very unattractive...especially for thin women who are small-breasted because the bulge will protrude. I assume women with larger breast-size may look better in this blouse since their breast size may overcome the bulge elastic. In my opinion...this elastic hem is the limiting factor. I hope the designer brings this blouse back with just a straight hemline...NO ELASTIC!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby bridget cute spring top
I tried this on in the store and couldn't leave without. It's a perfect blouse for spring, it is cute but classy enough for work, and so comfortable. I love the sleeves, they are just the right length and are wide enough (no constricting of arm circulation). I was worried that the design would gape, but no, the single button at the front keeps everything in place. I went one size down in this top (got M, I'm most often L). The only thing I don't completely approve of is the choice of fabric (rayon), but it feels very nice and as long as it doesn't shrink in the wash I'll be happy. I hope this top will be offered in more colors later int the year. Now I'm looking for the perfect leaf green skirt to pair with it!
