"I love this top! I ordered mine in the red & received a compliment the first time I wore it! My only complaint is that within wearing it once, one of the back decorations had fallen off. The top comes with more attached to the tag so it should only take a few minutes to sew back on. Kind of a pain but I think this top is worth it. I sized up in this top because I wanted mine long in the back so I could wear it over a slip if I wanted too. I also wear mine with a white bandeau or black bandeau if I wear it over the black slip below. If you don't plan on wearing it over a slip then you could probably get away with your regular size. For reference, I am 5'7, 138, size 6 & a 34D-DD."
