I love this tunic! I purchased it in the navy but now I'm thinking I might get the ivory one too! I'm a 36B with broad shoulders & smaller size waist (built like a swimmer). I purchased the medium & it fits true to size. The sleeves are a slub knit fabric & the taps are optional. The sleeves are regular length when they are not "tabbed," making this one of my favorite things about the shirt! It is *very* long in the back (covers the bum) & can be worn with skinny or straight jeans or leggings. I think if you went with a flared or boyfriend style, there'd be too much fabric going on. This tunic is flattering & comes with a removable sash that's about 1" wide & also navy. This shirt hangs nicely & is versatile: I feel like with leggings, I'd fit in with yoga moms, or with skinny jeans, I'd be fine going out to a nice dinner.

Fell in love with this when I saw it in the store. Nice summer weight fabric, pretty pintuck detailing very soft and flowy. There is a placket behind the buttons so there is no need to wear a tank underneath. The sizing seemed small at first, but it turns out that the sizing is just inconsistent. I usually wear an XS, and ordered an XS. The one that arrived was extremely narrow in the shoulders, almost like a child's top. I traded it at the retail store for an XS that fit perfectly. Still, it may be advisable to size up for most people. It comes with a tie belt not shown (same fabric). The back is much longer than the front, so much so that it seems a little odd, and I may get this altered. This top is great worn alone, and super layered under a cardigan or long vest. I think it is worth the price point.

Smitten, this is my new favorite wardrobe peice
I purchased the blue and though it was a darker inkier blue than I expected - i'm loving the navy. The blue shirt is not sheer, it's nice and light (I was comfortable in 86 degree weather in our lovely Houston humidity in it#.
It is exceptionally flattering. The V neck is a flattering look on most women and it accentuates my collarbone and hey-- what's wrong with anyone's collar bone? Gorgeous.
I'm a 36DDD and purchased the Large #where often need an XL# Fortunately I didn't have to worry about any more than the slightest pucker at the top button #I needed to wear a cami under it anyway because it's quite low cut and shows my cleavage all the way almost to the bra#. I would say because I can fit the L where I may normally wear an XL #sometimes I fit a L if there's stretch# that it runs a little large though I think there's some play bigger or smaller because the shirt is well cut and supposed to be loose.
It comes with a 'cloth' belt of the same color as the shirt #similar to the style of belt that comes with a dress by Tiny# and while I normally discard these it was the perfect accent snugging it up the shirt and accentuating the narrowest part of me == making me look oh so skinny. I wear the belt bowed in the front with the bow moved off to one side. Because the shirt is so dark the belt simply added fit to it without distracting from the look.
The shirt drapes perfectly. It covers my rump with the offset hem in the back and in the front it did not cover my khaki shorts with 6 inch inseam so it was a nice pairing. I wore with my hot pink strappy wedge sandals and a layered necklace that sits around my collar bone. Super cute. I only wish it came in more colors i'd buy them all!!
Tried this in the Blue Motif. It is in no way see-through (as rayon - and Maeve tops in general - can sometimes be). It IS an infinity top, meaning, the fabric in the front "loops" underneath. Maeve did a good job here: the top is secured not only with a snap, but is also sewn shut in one area as well (about 1" above the snap closure). With that written, I would recommend a cami underneath this, just to err on the side of caution.
I have very large biceps, and very wide shoulders, so Maeve has always put me in this situation where I need a 4 for the body, but a 12 to accommodate my biceps and shoulders. This is NOT the case with this top: the size 6 fit comfortably in both the arms and in the shoulders, albeit it was slightly large in the chest area. So I would recommend sizing DOWN from your usual Maeve size, one, maybe even two sizes (the latter if you are very petite). Also the arms on this are very long; if your arms are on the shorter side, going with the Petite version of this may be a better call.
This is just a nice staple piece. And it really looks great tucked AND un-tucked (always a plus).

This skirt has a lovely sheen and the colors really pop. I ordered the size 2 and it fit well. I am not straight (have hips) and this skirt has just the right amount of flare that is does not hug my bottom too tightly. It sits well at the waist just like in the picture and the drape is perfect. I really think that this style would flatter many body types. It hits just at the bottom of my knee (I am 5'6") and is great with either boots or pumps. So glad I found this beauty!

I got the black in this top and it wasn't sheer at all -- no cami needed. I like the added feature of the wrap on the front, but it is a little low, which is a factor to consider when you're 36DD. It might have been a little higher if I sized down to a 10 (everything is comfortably roomy in the 12), but I thought it would be too tight in the shoulders and arms. I have long arms and the sleeves almost touch my wrists. I usually roll up my sleeves anyway, so it's not a big deal.
Overall, a great purchase!
Even though the name of the blouse is "peasant," nothing peasant about it. First, kudos for a real silk blouse and not synthetic fabric. It may look delicate but it's well sewn. However, one must take the blouse on and off a bit more careful and a t-shirt because, after all, it's sheer silk. Speaking of sheer, this blouse is very see through so a tank top is a must. A Georgetown-DC sales associate suggested that this blouse can be worn over a tank dress, brilliant idea of multi-tasking! The fabric flows beautifully and I like the muted flower print to make the lace details shine. It shows off my figure and hides the flaws, love it. Thanks to the previous reviewer for the tips about sizing. I'm 34B and regular size Small fits me perfectly, both width and length. I haven't came across a unique blouse like this in a long time. I think it's worth the price because the designer put a lot of thought and talent into this blouse.

I'm loving all of the sheer tops for spring/summer, and this one is no exception.
It's got a whole lot going on (printed, sheer silk; textured bib; crochet trim) but manages to ring simple, casual and comfortable. It is, admittedly, a bit short for my taste, but it works. Also, for what it's worth, the sleeves are not necessarily sleeves as there is no seam underneath (I'm sure there is a technical term for this, but I'm at a loss).
I'm still not sure whether this can be worn without a cami. The silk is definitely sheer, but it's *not* sheer around the bust area. I'm including two pictures, one with a white cami and one with a nothing but a bandeau bra underneath. I think in a more casual atmosphere, sans cami is fine.
I normally wear a size XS, but the store I was at only had a S and it fit fine.
For reference: 120 lbs, 5'4", 36B-27-27 and I purchased a S.

Love this top. Very feminine, whimsical, with a vintage look and feel. Yes, it is shear but not at the bust area where the heavier lace is. I am 5'4" 125, 34C and bought the XS.
I bought this in a large (I'm 5'6 and 140 lbs) but I probably could have ordered a medium, which I am doing now. I will keep the large though because I love this top and how comfortable and pretty it is on. I like tops loose, but think the large is a little too loose, hoping the medium is loose but a little more fitted to my figure. I am straight, no hips so the large, although cute on, hangs a little too loose. Am I repeating myself? Well made, colors vibrant, although the red at the bottom is more of a clay red than red red.

Cute & Casual
Great weight for spring. It's a great top to pair with jeans or leggings for a casual night out.

Beautiful but a bit boxy shaped
As soon as I saw this online, I had to get my hands on it. I instantly fell in love with the pattern and tunic style/length. My size in Anthro clothes always varies between small and medium, so I crossed my fingers and ordered the small. I'm glad I did, as the small is quite loose at the torso and hips, and I'm pretty "average" size wise--not particularly slim. If anything I think this could have been a bit more tapered, like it looks on the model, as I'm not a fan of boxy fits. I'm guessing the model's top is pinned back or she'd be drowning in it! All in all, I'm definitely glad I got it and will wear it a lot, but the slight square shape keeps it one star shy of "excellent", in my opinion.
I was pleased to find this lovely top. To read the label and find out it was silk was a bonus. It has a beautiful drape.
It is very elegant and can be dressed up or down. I think it will be timeless, good for any season. Throw on a lovely cardigan for the cooler weather or wear it as is for the summer. I am 5'3", 135 lbs and the small fits me well. The sleeves are the perfect length.

Very pretty silk top labeled as machine wash!
I usually take a size small. Tried on the size 6 & this pretty little top fit well with some room to spare on me (5'3", 119#, 36C). Looks on me pretty much as in the model pic. Label says it's silk & machine washable. I wld use a delicate cycle & woolite instead of regular detergent though. Note that the online details state 'dry clean'. Cant wait to wear with white jeans!

Picked this up when I was in store and it was one of my best purchases. I rarely wear blouses as I am busty and prefer fitted shirts as I don't like how they can sometimes 'tent' on me but this one is quite flattering and still gives me some shape. The neckline can be done up for a conservative look or undone for a more revealing neckline and the colour is beautiful!
For those ordering online I bought a size 6, am about 138lbs and a 36D-26, height below.
First let me say this is a well made top that has a beautiful pattern and overall fit. I am 5'0, 135 llbs, 34D, and typically wear 6-8 in most things and the size Medium fit me very well.
With that said, I couldn't help but think I looked like I was wearing a "puffy shirt" similar to the one in an old Seinfeld episode if anyone reading this review is old enough to remember it. The one where Jerry went of the Today show and Bryant Gumbel made fun of him for it. The sleeves are just that, puffy.
Otherwise totally adorable!

A beautiful & unique top!
Ordered my usual size small & a perfect fit. The top looks as depicted in the pic & fit pretty much the same on me at 5'3", 119#. Well made, sheer & fresh white. The details describe the top well... removable tank/cami, has billowy poetic sleeves... the underarm area is very wide but I like the look. Not overwhelming or ridiculous for me. It's a keeper & think this top will be very popular!

This top is beautiful it is really full at the sleeves and one I first put it on was not crazy about it. But the more I had it on the prettier it became. It is loose but it is gathered in the back towards the waist which makes it very flattering. It seems a bit big and I could probably wear an XS and I am usually a S.
Love this top! The detail and quality of the fabric are both excellent! Can't wait to wear this flirty and feminine top on my upcoming vacation. I found the fit to be tts. I'm 5'5", 125lbs, 32D and the 4 is a perfect fit. I probably could have sized down but the 2 may have been too tight in the shoulders for me. I think this top can be dressed up or down. Thanks again, Anthro for another 'favorite' addition to my closet.

I ordered this in a size 2 (I'm 5'4" 125lbs 34B). This fits very well - it is vey fitted to the waist though. I could go up a size but It would probably be too loose on the bust/armpit area. The top is just as pictured and is very well made. The under layer on the peplum is soft and a little sheer and the top sheer part is soft as well. I used my birthday discount for this one - definitely a good buy if you get this on sale. I love Floreat designs. This will be really cute with skinny jeans or fitted pants/skirts. This hits on the low hip in front and almost covers the butt in the back. This top is just really pretty and feminine and it's a keeper.

This top looks and feel very different in person. It's more fitted but in a good way because it appears baggy on the model online. It's also styled weird here with the belt. This top has enough going on so it doesn't need that. Very beautiful and flattering. I'm going to pair with some white denim. True to size. I ordered a 2 and that's my usual.
