I bought this in a large as I wear a size 16, but I should have bought the XL. Luckily, the rhubarb wasn't in stock then, in an XL. The reason I say this is it is very form fitting, and would be fine if you don't mind your boobs and every roll you have showing! Nice fabric, and medium weight.
Order arrived almost too soon. J had plenty of time to wrap the top, but the amount of time it spent under the tree was maddening to my mother. She is a small woman and very hard to fit and please. The top did both. She loves it, and it looks great on her
Shirt is nice, it is a lightweight pullover, love the 3/4 sleeves Being it is made with cotton/spandex, I went by the measurements given and ordered a size up as so many things seem to shrink these days...........even ordering a size up it still does not fit, I would have had to go up at least 2 sizes I cannot comment on how it washes - I tried it on before washing to see how it fit, when it was too tight, I didn't bother washing it If you can get the right fit, it would be a nice shirt provided it didn't shrink
