I usually take a small in this stye - but with this top, the body was suprisingly snug rather than the slouchy stretchy fit I had expected. At the same time (at least on me) the straps were loose, didn't cover my bra straps, and the armholes gaped - so trying a larger size wouldn't have worked, either. I am slim, with a 34" bust but in my 60's; this top might be lovely on a trim younger body! Seems well made. I liked the fabric and loved the colour. Sorry to have to return it. Thankyou, Reitman's for making online returns so easy.
