Great except...
I was getting ready to go to a movie premiere last night and my neighbour buzzed my place. I answered the door wearing this top and he was like "Whoa!!!" and actually stumbled backward. It's that kind of top. Elegant, stylish, and sophisticated. The lines and the tweed and the structure of the top come together to make a real powerhouse of a piece. Fits true to size but, as others have commented, it doesn't really want to stay up. Several times during the evening I had to tug it up. I think this wouldn't have been the case if I were a little bit better endowed (ahem) but then I'm not sure how easily it would have been to even fasten the top (I'm 34B and the size 4 was comfortably snug). I think next time I wear it to an event I'll use some wardrobe tape to help keep it in place.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Making sweatshirts look cool.
This season I'm big on sweatshirts with a little added "something." This one I like because it's basically a really comfy sweatshirt but it sits elegantly around the collar bone. I also have worn it as an off-the-shoulder top and it looks brilliant like this as well. Flattering, comfy, cozy, and elegant.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Already donated it to Salvation Army.
Too big, unflattering. The crest on the chest has like a wiring in it that pulls and tears at the inner side of the right sleeve. Not well designed or conceived.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Total heartthrob!
This corset top is swoon-worthy. Beautiful fabric, pattern, and structure. Elastic paneling at the back makes for a perfect fit, but because the elastic is smocked it even adds to the flirtiness of the top. I'm broad-torsoed and long-torsoed so I was worried about getting a size 4 (I wear a 34 B bra), but it stretched to fit perfectly (looks alarmingly small on the hanger), though I don't quite fill out the actual cup of the top as much as I'd like. I tried it with a navy cardigan and skinny jeans, as well as with a pencil skirt and both looks were amazing. Worth every penny.
