Rated 4 out of 5Â by cunnu Cute but ......
Am 115, 5.5 and lean. Generally wear and got an XS. This one fits fine, but the hands are a little tight, i have really skinny arms. I am a 32B and the top fits just about right. I am worried about it shrinking if i wash it. But sizing up would make the lower part more poofy than what it already is. So not sure if i am keeping this top. The deep maroon color is beautiful.
Also, i want to ask the designers: you took so much effort into little details and the right cut. Why the shabby material? its so cheap and thin, l am so afraid to wash it. Please please improve your quality. I am from India, there is so much variety out there, why this cheap ready to tear material? its priced 100 plus !

"I normally love all FP clothing. However I thought this shirt was overpriced for what it is. The back is too big and the fabric is too fragile, at the first use it broke. I had to return it :(

I was drawn to the plum color in the store but decided against buying it. The material seemed like it will look ragged after a few wears. The buttons looked cheap. I also found the sleeves to be somewhat tight in my usual size. This tunic just didn't look as nice up close.

Why such delicate/cheap fabric? I second what the previous reviewer said; why design such a nice piece then use the cheapest fabric possible?
On to my personal experience:
I purchased this before any reviews were posted and when my size was just about to sell out in Plum. I was thrilled when it arrived, but when I went to try it on it was another story. First when I just touched it to hang it on a hanger one of my nails pulled a "run" in it. I seriously wonder how this is sewn with out destroying it, I'm a seamstress and even I can not imagine how they did it. I bet these don't weather well on the rack in stores!
I admit I am a sz Large, but I'm no linebacker by any means, but trying to pull this over my shoulders was almost impossible (seriously). While I was trying to get it on I could hear the seams breaking and I was being as delicate and careful as possible, this costs me $117 w/ tax, so I didn't want to destroy it.
Once I got it on, it was tight across my chest (36DD) and the buttons gap (shouldn't be surprised about that).
Over all I'm conflicted about this top, it's very pretty, but I'm surprised at the low quality, especially considering the price.
It's the most disappointing item I think I've ever bought from FP. Usually a Large works well and I love most everything else I've bought.
The price is waay to high for this top, even half the price would be too high. It's sad because I loved this in photos and BEFORE I tried it on.
Just be prepared to file your nails well before you even touch this and order up if you want to get in on and you're not a trained contortionist!

I really like the design of this top but the material is really thin. Also, as you can see on the model, the way the buttons are placed leaves a gap. I got my usual size, it fits fine but I have a feeling that washing it might cause it to shrink.

I have been waiting over 3 weeks for this top and what a disappointment (I live in the UK). It looks absolutely gorgeous but when you try it on, is it tight around the arms,the material is very fragile and you can see right through it. Recommend buy a couple of sizes bigger as looks better loose. For me it is definitely going back as not worth the money - sorry :(

This top is truly GORGEOUS! I love love love the color of the plum. I LOVE the way it fit (size large). The length was just perfect at 5'9". The down fall is the fabric.... I could hear the top tearing and popping seams when I slipped it on. I am not particularly busty but the buttons were were pulling from the placket. The fabric is just too delicate for me to keep this top. If only it was made of a slightly stronger fabric.

This is sooo beautiful in the plum size large. I am not a small girl, but I am not exactly plus size either. I tried this on in the large (36 C bust) and I could hear it ripping along the seams before it was completely on. Once on, it was soo beautiful I almost bought it.. Until I took it off and heard the seams ripping more and more. After I got the top off I examined the seams only to discover that they were starting to rip apart.. after only 30 seconds of wear. Also, I noticed the fabric had already started to pill.. not a good omen for this top.
