Pretty blouse- but beware of sizing!

Reviewed by High Desert Shopper from Albuquerque, NM on Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Very pretty blouse! Pretty soutache accents on yoke, nailhead detailing- and love the ruffle on cuffs! The blouse is seamed to be close-fitting, with a little additional 'give' provided by the subtle knit inserts at sides. The cotton material is casual with a slightly ethnic feel, of medium wieight. Overall, I would highly recommend as a casual, yet pretty blouse.
BUT- beware the sizing!! I ordered a medium for me, a large for a gift. (I'm 5'6" 130 #, normally a medium is slightly large or right on). I tried both on to check fit. The size clearly marked as LARGE on the garment itself was uncomfortably tight overall and gapped at the bust. The blouse marked MEDIUM on the garment itself fit me as a medium normally would, with a true medium fit overall, no gapping or pulling at the bust. In other words, the Large was much smaller than the Medium!!
I agree with the previous reviewer that there is little or no generosity at the bust of this blouse, though I am a C cup, and one blouse fit very nicely). I like the detailing and color enough to try an exchange- but anticipate it might get tricky with the inappropriate sizing marked on the product.
Recommended- but with the caveat on sizing!!
