I love the material of this top. It feels very silky and luxurious. I got the deep purple color, and it is gorgeous. I wear a small, and the fit is a little more snug than previous silky, banded hem tanks The Limited has released, but I actually prefer that, as I think it's more flattering. The band is also wider than usual in this style, probably due to the ruching on the side of the hem. Overall, I think it's a great top.
This is such a great top because it is so versatile! It can be worn with jeans, shorts, skirts, or under a blazer! I went with my usual size but found that the armpit holes were extra big. I prefer to wear camis under my tops, and the cami could be seen at the sides when I lifted my arms. The material is really soft, and the peach is such a bright shade, it is perfect for warm weather and can easily transition from and to cooler weather. I would recommend this if it fits you, but if you're picky like me, you might just end up having to pass.
I love these shirts. Five or so years ago, the Limited carried this shirt in turquoise, light green and brown. They've held up in the wash over the years without any noticeable color fading. Loved the colors this year!

I’m a 36 B, but am petite and I got an extra small in this shirt. It fits perfectly!
I bought this in bright purple and I love it. The fit is really flattering and the color just pops! I think there's a lot of outfits this could go with. And the sleeves are wide enough that I don't necessarily have to wear a cardigan to work.
