I love the cotton/linen blend this company does. The look is soft but durable. I like the way the small fits me. I'm 5'5 120 lbs and the small is close fitting but not tight. The neck line is not too low in my opinion. I bought 3 and would buy more if more colors came available.

This tank is a heavier weight, not very soft - it feels like knit linen, which it is. It was also way too small. I wear a size 4 dress (32 inch bust) and could barely get the size small over my chest. I had to send it back.

I ordered 2 of these– white and blue– in XS hoping they would fit my petite 20 year old daughter. She kept the blue which fit her lean torso very well. I tried on the white (not see through at all) and was surprised to find it fit my substantial chest– reviewers are right that the material is not stretchy, but I did find that the XS runs TTS. I do find the fabric quite scratchy, probably because of the linen, which is a disappointment since linen blends should be more comfortable than 100% cotton. The J Crew linen t's tend to be much nicer to wear than pure cotton, but not so with this top. I'll wash it with loads of softener and see what happens. For the price they were definitely keepers despite the issues I've mentioned.

I think these tanks are perfect. They are well made, sturdy, and fit true to size. I can see how if you have a large chest these shirts might be too tight around the chest because they are linen/cotton mix and therefore aren't really THAT stretchy. I like that. Also, they are not 100% opaque, but again they are linen, so that is to expected. That said, they are not flimsy, paper thin like other cheap tank tops. I am a 32C, 130 lbs, 5'6" and I think the small fits great - my normal size. I think I'll order all the other colors offered!

I normally wear a small. Previously I purchased two MK cotton linen tee shirts that were perfectly sized. This tank shirt is a much smaller small than the tee shirt style. Still its a great top. Very comfortable.

Mountain Khakis "Anytime Tank Top" review: This is described as a cotton-linen blend top. Please be aware,
this is a knit tank tee -- not your normal cotton-linen fabric. On the positive side, as one reviewer said, you can’t
see through the fabric and It appears to be well made. That said……..
My opinion is the fabric is NOT soft -- it has a rather rough hand. After washing, if there's some sort of finisher
on the fabric, it might get softer. I have any number of cotton tank tops that are very soft. The linen content,
only 30%, isn't that high to warrant such a difference.
I bought a Large (12-14) which should fit to a 40" bust. I held it up and thought what I'd received was a mistake.
That it must be a Junior's item. This top measures 32" at the base of the underarm opening and 30" across the chest.
Even for a trim fit that stretches, I don't know how you're going to get a 40" bust into a 30" top. If you can get a couple
inches of stretch through the bust line, maybe this top would be considered a trim fit for an Extra Small (32" bust).
I guess if you like your tops SKIN TIGHT, you might find a size that fits but even then, based on this one, you'd need to
go up at least a couple sizes. The large top measured 28" from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the hem.
I shop a lot at STP and have for many years. I’m almost always exceptionally happy. The descriptions are usually right on.
I get very good to very high quality items at reasonable or spectacular prices. The shipping is always fast and
the service impeccable.
That said, I won't bother returning this but will simply donate it to a charity.
