Rated 4 out of 5 by em823 cute top
Overall, the top is pretty, and I'm planning to wear it to work with skinny ankle pants. I got the top on sale, not sure if I would spring for it full-price. It's on trend with the peplum and (I think) was a flattering shape. It's pretty sheer (got the white/cream color) - I have a light pink tank from Madewell that I'll wear under it, and a bottom layer's definitely necessary, especially to wear to work. I normally wear an XS (or more occasionally a small) in Madewell tops, and the XS in this fit snugly. I have relatively small waist/boobs, and, especially in the waist at the peplum seam, this just fit. I'd consider going up a size (or going with the bigger if you're between) if you want it less fitted or don't have a pretty narrow waist, especially with the light material, as another reviewer mentioned.

This peplum top is lovely for summer. It is light and airy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SeattleShrey Cute, but not what I was expecting
I have been wanting a silk peplum top for awhile and thought that this would be perfect. This is definitely a summer top. From the picture, the price, and from previous peplum tops I've seen at Madewell, I thought that this would be a little thicker. It could probably use a lining, because it's on the thin side. That said, once I tried it on, it is quite flattering and I got a lot of compliments on it. I paired it with some black skinny jeans and heels but think there are so many possibilities to dress it up/down.
Also, as far as sizing, I normally wear a small and the small would have fit, but the medium is much more comfortable. Particularly due to the thinness of the material, I feel that the small would have been unsuitable for work.

Beautiful color (the blue) and works for casual as well as at work.
Very comfortable. Lightweight, perfect for all year round in San Diego.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Michelle331 Great top, but too large for my frame
I love Madewell anything; but at 5'3" 115lbs (bra size 32B), this shirt was a baggy on me. The quality is great, but I wish it wasn't as sheer as it was. You'll definitely need a nude bra or cami under. I had to return this top.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mehh Cute Concept- Needs lining
I kicked myself for not ordering this shirt over the winter when it was offered in black and cobalt colors. To my amazement, it was recently offered again in white and a lavender purple. I ordered the white in a size (m) even though I typically wear a (s) in Madewell tops. I figured that because of my bust (32 DD), I should size up in this style. I was so disappointed when I tried it on in the white. It was see through and I would definitely have to wear a cami underneath. I'd rather not have to do that in the spring/summer. Another reviewer said that the top before was of better quality. I'm disappointed that I didn't order it before when I had the chance. Sadly, back it goes.
