This is a very pretty blouse. I love it's rich purple color and the gathered detail at the neckline. It's designed to be a flowy, loose fitting blouse so I have no problem with the fit, however the fit of the sleeves on my arms is different from the way it appears on the model. (Either she is wearning a size too big or she has very thin arms.) The end of the sleeves are elasticized and turn inward under my elbows. The bottom of the blouse is also elasticized and turns inward right above the hips. You have to let the blouse rest naturally on your body to enjoy the beauty of the fit. You will need to wear a camisole under this blouse because it is very thin. I purchased it in my usual size at The Limited.
Purchased this top without trying it on. Big mistake. The color/material is beautiful but the fit of the sleeves and waist make anyone who wears it look x3 the size. The sleeves and waist are so baggy I don't think even if you were a size 0 it would look nice. I shop at The Limited all the time and this is the only item I have ever returned. So disappointed because the color is great.
I LOVE THE COLOR OF THIS TOP AND THATS ABOUT IT. THE SLEEVES ARE HUGE, AND START ALMOST AT YOUR WAIST. SURE IT'S IN STYLE NOW, BUT IT WILL BE OUT SOON. THESE SLEEVES ALSO MAKE YOU LOOK HUGE AT YOUR WAIST. WISHED THE SLEEVES WERE THE SAME STYLE AS THE BLACK TOP WITH LITTLE WHITE DOTS. THAT TOP IS AMAZING!
