Rated 4 out of 5Â by anthropologist similar to last years
I have this top in white from last summer and really like it. This time I opted for the pastel striped version. This year's version has different sleeves - there is an extra seam and the sleeves are gathered from that point. The sleeves may be too much for some ladies but with this bohemian design it works. The length is longer in the back, shorter in front. The linen fabric is quite thin and sheer, but comfortable. A tank or cami is needed underneath. This top runs big. Last year I went down a size to xs and it is the same this year. This is an easy top to wear; great with jeans or shorts.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by quinncx wanted to love it but the fit was off
I ordered this this blouse in a L and XL, hoping one of them would be the perfect white summer shirt I've been hoping to find. Sadly, my hunt continues. I'm an apple with a 42D bust, and the L was too tight in the chest though it fit beautifully in the sleeves and through the body. The XL fit in the chest but was too big and billowy overall for my taste. The fabric is lovely, and the fit in the back is gorgeous, so I suspect this might work well for those with smaller busts.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Clem13 Beautiful top, not for hourglass figures
This is a lovely top. Soft, crinkly fabric, beautiful washed-out colors, thoughtful design details. Unfortunately, I decided to return it because it was not very flattering on my curvy figure. For reference, I have 37" bust, 27" waist, 40" hips. I have fairly broad shoulders and muscular arms. I ordered my usual size medium, and it fit perfectly through the shoulders, sleeves, length. However, this style is very billowy and full through the middle, which is my narrowest part, so this shirt and I were not meant to be. I would definitely recommend this top for those with straight figures, or women who carry their weight through the mid-section (as opposed to around the hips). Again, gorgeous top. Wish it had worked for me.
