Okay, curvy ladies, you know the problem well. If you are hourglass or pear in shape it can be difficult to impossible to find flattering clothes without resorting to body-tight styles. I don't know about you, but when it's hot outside i can't stand to have a bunch of fabric hugging my skin. I need airflow, y'all!

Bella to the rescue this year, i can't tell you how thrilled i am with my purchase of three of these tops! My shape is hourglass to slightly pear and this top is very flattering to my figure. The moisture banishing fabric is wonderfully soft and light but not see-through in the colors i got-grey, black, and maroon. I read some complaints about sleeve peepholes, but the sleeves are long enough and drape in such a way as to not offer the world a front-seat view of my pits. If i'm feeling paranoid, a long-line bra in a cool, wicking fabric will work just fine. That and not propping my arm up in the one position that actually gives any view of skin will keep my business private.

As for the fit, it is fab! I am one of those annoying wimps who has absurd tactile hypersensitivities, but there is almost zero complaint with this top, even for me. I chose a size that is a close fit in the hips (as there is plenty of extra space on top) and it can be smoothed straight (at 5'6", average torso, it reaches just over my bum) or scrunched into a rouche on my hips with equal grace and stay put for the most part-no crawling and tugging constantly! I can't express how happy that makes me! *sniffle* The ONLY tiny possible annoyance i can see happening is that this kind of neckline can end up falling down a bit in the back to make me feel like it's falling back there and choking me in the front. For most people that would not even be noticeable and i don't think even i will have enough issue with it to mention. Even the eentsy, satin tag is soft and not clawing me the way nearly all clothing tags do!

Pairing it with a soft maxi skirt, such as Women's Solid A-line maxi skirt with a ruched waist gives me many flattering and cool dress up or dress down options. SO, all in all, i will be facing the stupid-hot summer days to come with no sweat in my fantastic Bella tops!

I bought this shirt in large and I'm a medium. It runs a little small, more like juniors sizing but fits great. The material is very soft and not cheap feeling. The way it drapes over the body is very feminine and easy to dress with. It's great with yoga pants or jeans with heels. Not quite long enough to wear with leggings though.

I love the cut of this shirt, very flattering around the waist area. The neck is more open/wider then it appears in the picture and just barely covers both bra straps when it's sitting even, often shifting to one side or the other. I don't mind this at all, but you can't tell it would do that from the picture.

I am 5'9" and 150 lbs. and the L fits great. It is a great coverage, including covering my arms were my skin is not so great. I feel really good in this top because it is not clingy and the material is super soft. I have it in black and grey.

This shirt fits great...actually looks great when it is new...but it did not wash well at all. The shirt "pilled" up all over the front and back.

Read the reviews and was hesitant about the sizing because several reviews seemed all over the place. The shirt has a cute fit - just like the model. I am a 38C and typically where a size L in Misses. I ordered an XL in the Maroon and it fits fine. Will be wearing a cami under this one. Quality of material seemed about right for the price.

UPDATE:

After a couple of wears, I realized I could have gone with a LARGE.

It's comfortable, it fits just right and I find it hard to pick any other tops to wear on a day to day basis. The only concern I have is the sleeves. I have to wear a tank top under this shirt because the sleeves swoop very low and reveal a bit of skin.

I am actually impressed with the quality and fit of this shirt being that it was so "cheap", or shall I say, inexpensive..I think I will get another color in this exact same style and even explore other styles from this brand..5 stars well worth it imho

Love it! Soft, comfortable, very flattering. Could be workout or casual attire. I like the loose fit at the top and sleeves and then the shapely fit at the waist . Will definitely buy this again.

This stylish shirt went above and beyond my expectations. I usually wear a ladies large, but I always feel those tops are too restricting because of my tummy. This top is loose, comfortable, and it hides the one body feature I've always had a little shame about: my stomach. Also, because of the sleeves, sweat doesn't show up under the arm pits on those hot summer days, which is a big plus for me.

I usually use this top casually, pairing it with a pair of jeans or jean shorts and wearing light jewelry. I always feel comfortable whenever I go out on the town in this ensemble.

The material, a blend of 65% polyester and 35% viscose, is soft, smooth, and always retains a fairly cool temperature. In that way, it's almost like cotton, but smoother.

Now, I must warn some buyers. Because the style of the sleeves are very open, your bra may be exposed at times when you stretch. However, I don't think there's a problem with wearing a camisole under this top in summer because of its airy design. Also, the collar of the shirt may sometimes slip to one shoulder or the other, but I actually let it stay there because I like the alternative style it presents.

Anyways, this top has quickly become one of my absolute favorites. I have a lot of shirts in my dresser and closet, but I always make sure I wear this one at least once a week. I hope this review helps you to do so as well.
