This review is from: PattyBoutik Women's Cowl Neck Button Embellished Top (Apparel)
This top is adorable! I agree with other reviewers that the sizes run small, which is why I ordered one size up and I'm glad I did. I'm 5'8" and would not normally consider myself plus-size, but I do have some tummy fluff I try to hide, so I don't normally opt for really form fitting tops. I wasn't sure what to expect since the photo shows a tighter waist area. Thankfully the shirt fits great, just a little snug in the waist, but the gathered fabric adequately hides my tummy area. The buttons and design are fashionable and adorable!
A few notes:
First off, the shipping estimate was depressingly long, but I was surprised to see the shirt arrive much sooner than expected (by about 3 weeks). I can't say how long this will take for everyone, but I was glad to see it was over-estimated rather than the other way around.
From the photo, I kind of expected the fabric to be more sweater like. In reality, the fabric is stretchy, smooth, and relatively thin, but not see thru or cheap feeling.
The shirt is very long, which I love! Plenty of room to either pull it down further or let it bunch up at the waist. The sleeves are also plenty long (I have long arms). I'm a C-cup and the gather at the bust is very flattering and sexy, without hanging too low.
The buttons are SO cute, but as an FYI, the area between the buttons is not fastened. So if it winds up being stretched, you may want to wear a tank top underneath to prevent any "peekaboo". In most cases I really don't think this would be an issue though.
The shirt did have a faint odd odor (I've experienced this with many newly purchased fabrics). I don't think it has anything to do with the quality of product, more likely just the type of fabric or dye. One wash did the trick.
All in all, this shirt is very stylish. Great color, nice fit, quality seems commensurate with price. I'm very happy!
