Rated 5 out of 5 by Biscotti So simple, so pretty
As other reviews noted, this shell is very thin but very elegant. It is one of those tops that you must try on to appreciate. It can easily be dressed up with a nice bottom. I happened to try it on wile wearing TB legging jeans and it looked so fresh and cute. So many options. I am 5'3" 129# 34DD and medium fit perfectly. No pulling or sagging under the arm. The top portion of shell is very sheer and silky. The bottom is a nice cotton stretch. Not too see through.

Ordered in navy. The navy is a deep hue and can pass for a soft black if not scrutinized. It is beautiful, elegant and will polish your look dressed up or down. Bought to wear with the underrated Allegra Ribbon Pant, it's a flawless look and comfortable ensemble at the same time. Also paired with a suit jacket for work and had nothing but compliments all day.
As mentioned, the item is sheer but subtle when worn with a nude bra. The fit is a little on the long side on an average torso like mine, but gently bubbles at the hip and looks chic. Could be worn on a taller torso. Large bust does not pull across the front.
The fabric is lightweight which is a plus for warm weather and facilitating layering, the sheer upper piece of the garment reminds me of a delicate layer of old school hosiery. Fine so far, however the piece snags easily. I had a small run in it on the first wear, though I was wearing it with zeal on a sailing trip. I bought two replacements in-store which had tiny beginnings of a snag- that telltale bunched thread hiding a tiny hole. I intend to buy another in perfect condition to put away for professional wear and keep the snagged top for play.

I ordered this top in white to go with the Ria skirt. The top is definitely thin, but not too delicate for my taste. I am very tall (6'1"), so I usually have trouble with tops like these being too short to be decent, but this one hits very nicely, nearly to my hips. In white, there is a definite sheerness to the top around the midsection, but this doesn't bother me. I still like it and suspect I'll get a lot of wear out of it.
