Rated 4 out of 5 by n0r1 Lovely & blousey; needs to be tucked in, though
Love this top! I was worried it would be too sheer, but I wore it several times with a neutral-colored bra, and didn't feel like I was underdressed. The lace at the top is lovely, and will hold up well.
The only couple of things I like slightly less about this top is that it billows out a bit at the bottom -- less of a straight-down cut, which wouldn't need to be tucked in; and more A-line (if one can say that about a shirt). So it needs to be tucked in every time. Also, the hook-and-eye closure at the back of the neck comes undone frequently, catching on the lace. I think just pressing it in harder will fix this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Trixie Nice top, but not for me!
I pre-purchased this top a few months early, and was excited to finally get it. I ordered a size M as I was told it would fit tts or on the large size but I would say it is almost a bit on the small side, at least if you are curvy. I am a size M in most Madewell t-shirts but have to size up in some of the silk tops depending on the cut. The M was a bit too tight across the bust and hip, so I ordered a size L. The L fit, but it was not very flattering - if you are busty, the front pleat creates a weird shape, while the middle has a lot of volume and the bottom just sits at the hip. I wish that either the waist was a bit more tailored, and/or the bottom hem was curved like a dress shirt - it would fall better at the hip. Overall, it is a good quality, nice looking item but I found it to fit a bit funny on me. To be fair, it would probably look a lot better if you have a straighter, less curvy shape.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ShoppingDiva2 PLEAT IN YOUR CLEAVAGE IS SO UNATTRACTIVE!
The fit I'd say is TTS and just as shown. However, there is this pleat in the front inbetween your breasts right on your cleavage. I'm a bit busty. So this looked really bizarre on me. Then, when I moved my arms, this pleat would "pop!" and create this "poof of fabric" in my cleavage. The profile was just goofy-looking. Perhaps if you are small-breasted this doesn't happen? But, I'm returning my top.
The quality is good. Nice silk. Well sewn. But, it's over-priced for a simple top with some lace. And, with the crazy styling, definitely not
worth the cost. It is light, airy and comfortable. Not sheer so you do not need a cami. A nude bra works well.
I marked I could not recommend this because "most" women have cleavage and I think they'd find that pleat a real unflattering like I did. If you don't, that's great.
