Nice Fabric but Poor Fit

Reviewed by Grad Student on a Budget from Cambridge, UK on Sunday, September 14, 2014
There were a couple of things to really love about this top. The fabric felt like your favorite vintage t-shirt, washed hundreds of times over the past decade until it was thin and smooth. The colors were beautiful and saturated - "berry jam" was an intense orchid", "wild melon" was a rosy coral, "atlantis" was a hot mint, and "lychee" was a glowing peach. Unfortunately, for me at least, the fit just didn't work well. I have broader shoulders and am an hourglassy smallish medium (34C bust - 27" waist - 38.5" hips); I ordered Small and Medium and neither fit properly. The Small was a somewhat too loose in the waist and slightly too loose in the hips; the shoulders, by contrast, were cut at least two inches too narrow for mine, and the bust was a bit too snug for comfort. The shoulders of the Medium were still too narrow by at least an inch, and while the bust fit well, from the bust down the shirt was tent-like. Not only was the look very unflattering, but I find that loose shirts tend to chafe uncomfortably during exercise. I'm still debating keeping a Small or two because of the beautiful colors and fabric, but the fit just doesn't work for me. I would recommend this shirt to apple shapes with narrow shoulders.
