For me, it was ALL about the FIT!!!!
on March 2, 2014
I have never written an Amazon review before, but I just HAD to once I received this shirt! I wanted to dispel some of the rumors/other comments. FIRST of all, I am 5'7, about 150 lbs, medium build, and wear a 36D bra size. I was unsure which size to get at first, so I went with the company's suggestion to go by bust and ended up purchasing a medium. SO glad I did, it fit beautifully! I love how the sleeves are extra-long, and how it sits midway down my waist (I'm tall with a big butt, shirts are normally too short for me!) TAKE NOTE: This shirt was NOT meant to hang loosely, it was meant to cling a bit, which is what it does. Not to the degree that it shows ALL of the lumps and bumps that we generally like to hide (although it does show a few), but enough to flatter your silhouette. If you have a tummy that you're not fond of, this shirt is not for you unless you order black. SECONDLY, many other reviewers commented that the fabric was too thin. In my opinion, this was an exaggeration. This fabric is only SLIGHTLY thinner than a basic cotton t-shirt, and since it's made of 95% rayon, and 5% spandex, it's got a silky smooth quality and stretches like you wouldn't believe. FINALLY, a lot of people were saying that you'd have to go out and buy a low-back bra to make this work. Well, I already owned TWO different straplesses, they were both standard designs, and they both worked fine with this shirt. The bras did not poke out from this shirt at ALL. Now, I will say that the lines of my bra DID show through the shirt. It may be because I was wearing a bra that was slightly too small so it was kinda tight against my skin, creating puffiness underneath the shirt. Regardless, be aware if this is something that may bother you. Overall, this is a GREAT buy in my opinion. It's sexy, but classy, has some give, and is affordable. When in doubt, order a size down or else it will be too big. I will definitely be getting more PattyBoutik!
