I love the way this shirt looks on all the models. I bought them in all 3 colors when it went on sale because of the great price. I first ordered XS and the armholes were too small. I'm 5'4, 105lbs, and I wear XS/0 80% of the times. I only wear S in junior clothing brands like forever 21. Anyhow, I reordered this in size small, and while the armholes are okay now, the body is way too loose. However, it's an easy tailoring job that I can fix myself, so the size is not the biggest issue, even though small armholes big body is weird already. What makes this undecided for me is the fabric. The silk looked great in the picture, however, it's lined in nylon. Why in the world would you do that? While this shirt looks great once you fix the large waist, the nylon makes it super uncomfortable and unbreathable. It's not like I'm getting cheap nylon so I can machine wash it and wear it for unimportant occasions; you STILL have to treat it like silk. Maybe I should cut the liners out, because the nylon makes this FEEL like a $5 shirt from random store in the mall, whereas the outer silk makes it LOOK like it came out of Neiman Marcus. If you only care about the look, I guess this is a great buy if you fix the wide bottom, but I like my clothes to feel good too.
