"This top looks so, so, so beautiful online. Unfortunately, I live in the real world and this top just did not work. Firstly, there is not enough room in the bust area, making it looked like sausage in too tight of a casing. And the thing is, when your bust is smushed and there is this huge gaping hole right under it, it looks like your chest INCREDIBLE HULK RIPPED its way out of your shirt and now your apparel is just laying in ruins. And then... when I tried to wiggle it off my apparently-too-generous chest... I REALLY incredible hulk ripped the thin strip of lace connecting the bust and the tummy area. Obviously, the sizing played a role in this, but it's not like I was having an 8-person tug-o-war. I was being gentle. So... it's pretty fragile. Also, and this is a minor problem in comparison to the sizing issues and its propensity to self-destruct, but it took me like 6 tries to get it on right in the first place. It's sort of complicated. Despite all my problems, I adore the design enough that I am going to get a zipper put on and get the lace fixed and it will probably be fine. If you choose to buy this anyways, size up one unless you have literally no bust whatsoever. (My vanity prevents me from putting unflattering pictures of myself on the internet, so the picture is misleadingly attractive.)"
