Rated 5 out of 5 by stripespants My favorite top!
I can't recommend this shirt highly enough.
I'm usually a medium (5'7", 130 lb, 34B), but I tried this top on in a large because it was the only size they had left in the store! It still fits great, it's just a little boxier and doesn't nip in as much at the waist like it does on the model although it fits the same through the shoulders. I like my tops to hang more loosely like that and if you do too, I would recommend ordering a size up.
SO flattering and super comfortable. The silk is truly to die for. I can see how it wouldn't work for someone with a big bust, but for A-C cups the cut is truly fantastic!

I disagree with the bad reviews. The top is beautiful, the silk fabric is fantastic! Since it is silk, the top is not meant to be hugging or super-fitted. Yet thanks to darts at the back it has a nice shape, and is not baggy at all. I just wish Madewell made shirts with exactly that - back darts, because their current shirts (unlike this top), which they call ex-boyfriend or something are too baggy for me, and I never buy them. This top, however, is amazing! I took one star off, because the waistline is slightly higher than I want it to be. I want it to hit my natural waistline, but it doesn't. It is a minor thing, though.

I couldn't disagree more with the other reviewer! I went to a Madewell store the other day with a friend. Before going in, I told myself I couldn't buy anything. But then I saw this top! After holding it up, I decided to try it in large. It does seem to run a bit small. For reference, I am usually a small or medium, but I thought I would like this shirt to be a tiny bit oversized. When I tried it on I knew I was in trouble. It's BEAUTIFUL! It hangs so nicely! I don't think it is meant to be super fitted. I actually think it looks great on the model also, so I guess it's just a matter of taste. I splurged, knowing I would be wearing this to many upcoming holiday gatherings. It's really great with a statement necklace, jeans and some cute heels. I couldn't be happier with it!

A lovely little piece. The scalloped edge keeps the look soft and modern. Fit well through the chest but founf it to be a narrow fit through the hip. If you're a little curvy, yu may want to size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by amandax3 Lovely top!
I recently purchased this top & I love it! I think the scallop laser cut is unique & the almond blossom color is so beautiful!!! I love the fit of this top the most... I usually have an issue with Madewell tops because they're always super baggy in the back, but this top sits perfectly. I hope Madewell continues to make tops that are a bit more fitting like this one

I purchased this top for a Thanksgiving party and it went over great! I received many compliments. Note: I am normally a small however with peplum tops I do have to go up a size. I purchased a medium and it fits perfect with my larger bust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovenyc Beautiful silky top
Saw this top at the store and decided to try it on. Fits true to size, not meant to be superfitted. I got it in the almond blossom color which i love. Top looks great by itself or with cardigan or blazer. Can be dressed up or down. Overall i love it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by jvan29 Beautiful but doesn't last!
I agree with the other reviewers...this top is beautiful, but the scalloped edges on sleeves started fraying after I wore this two times. And now it looks terrible!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by lizinsf Shredded after the first use
I bought this in store and it was a perfect fit. However, after one use (under a sweater), the scalloped edges around the arms started shredding and now I can't wear it without covering up. Really tragic, since the peplum is really flattering and it's a great work-to-out top.
