Rated 5 out of 5Â by MGiovanna Gorgeous top, runs large
I have just received the M and L I ordered for size comparison. I'm UK 14/16 FP 10/12 M/L UK36/38C. The top runs very large and I find the M better, fitting as it appears on both the catalogue and studio shots. The L is a different thing altogether - I felt it looked a bit Cossack-style, with less emphasis on the waist (less flattering on me) and the sleeves are much longer, close to the wrist. Depends whether you are after an oversized tunic style or not, though the M still has a loose-ish fit on me, and I am not tiny! The other thing I should point out is with regard to the colour. The two I received are surprisingly different. The L is pretty much ivory, and close to the pics. The M is a much deeper tea shade, much richer, with more tonal variation, almost on the golden side of beige. Personally I like the deeper shade and am glad that the one that fits me is that colour. The fabric has a lovely soft drape and the little amber-gold embellishment is more effective in reality than on screen.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by cosmos good thing it's long
i have the light one in an xs. it is a tea colour (or taupe, as another reviewer said) not the ivory in the pictures. slightly oversized. it doesn't bunch in the belly so much as it does the waist. there is a lot of material that drapes over the waist/hips. it's biggest problem (for me) is that the whole shirt rides up near the breast line when i raise my arms so i have to constantly pull the shirt down. if not for the length, i would be showing a lot of skin every time i moved. this is a nuisance. but i love the style and the little lace and bead trim so it's a keeper.

The top in and of itself is gorgeous. The color is much different than depicted though, I would call it more of a taupe. I had issues with the way the shirt draped. It bunches out on the stomach and just didn't fall right on me. It emphasized my bust and shoulders and unfortunately just didn't work out!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by mkiss Not for me.
Pretty top, but it just isn't the appropriate silhouette if you have a substantial bust. Plus, the neckline doesn't actually open, it's sewn shut, so there's no manipulating the collar whatsoever. Felt like this did nothing to flatter my body, and the dolman sleeves only made it worse. Better for slimmer girls.
