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.

This shirt is simple and comfortable but looks a dressy due to the material and simple detailing at the sleeve. Beautiful!

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 1 out of 5 by Bella215 It falls apart
I LOVED this top. The fit, the scallops, the fabric - everything was beautiful. I got to wear it two times (in work settings, so I wasn't doing much besides sitting in meetings) before it started falling apart. The scallops on the sleeves are now shreds. I went to pull it out of my closet yesterday and all the scallops have started fraying, with some completely hanging in little threads. It's so unfortunate!
If you get this top, just know that you'll get two/three wears out of it before it falls apart on the hanger.

Rated 1 out of 5 by eg837 GORGEOUS silk, HORRIBLE cut
I saw this top and fell in love, mostly because of the silk. It is the softest silk I have EVER felt, by far, and it is very luxurious. But just look at the model. Usually if something looks horrible on the model, it isn't going to improve once I put it on! This was no exception. Regardless of the size I tried, it pulled horribly at the chest and the armholes gaped between the top of the shoulder and the armpit area. I am 5'9", 148lbs, 34D, 4/6 top size, and pretty proportionate. The small fit so well everywhere except the chest/shoulder area. The medium looked bad because it was too big in the waist, yet it still had the horrible fit up top. I have no idea what went wrong when they cut this top, but it went very, very wrong. It is so disappointing because the material is divine, the peplum hits in the correct place and is thus very flattering, and the colors are divine. But take my advice and do not order this top. Resist the temptation to pet the silk! Just walk away.
