I didn't realize how thick and stiff this blouse was going to be. I ordered a medium and as soon as I took it out I knew it wasn't going to fit. If you're more than a 34B don't bother. Mine was very tight and I hadn't even washed it yet. It's that type of heavy cotton (almost a denim) material that REALLY shrinks and do hand wash in cold water as instructed. Air dry or you'll have a very thick little girl's blouse with an adult pattern.

This blouse is very well made; the color matches the picture, the fabric is heavy and feels like it should last, the size is true, and it launders well. My only gripe is that the picture does not show the whole story, this shirt does not have a back - in other words both sides are the same, the exact same. I was a bit surprised by this and not altogether happy but the shirt is very comfortable to wear and I guess you don't have to worry about if you have it on backwards or not. If it weren't for this little problem I would have given this blouse a 5 star rating.
The picture is a little deceptive...it looked as though it had sleeves. It really doesn't, if you hold it out by the shoulders it all one piece. Kind of like one piece of material w/ a slit for the V-neck, and the sleeves are formed w/ the same pattern of just cutting under. The embroidery is beautiful, the color is also beautiful, the material is nice & heavy but not too heavy. It's the cut of the material that I'm not too crazy about, not as flattering as the pic. But I'm keeping it, belted it looks better & it really is beautifully made.

I bought this blouse for an upcoming trip to Egypt. I need clothes that will breath, be very conservative in terms of showing my body shape, and look nice in photos that I hope to keep for a long time. It looks like this lovely cotton blouse will do just that. The arms are cut wide enough to allow ventilation without exposing skin, the fabric is a well made cotton, the shape is conservative without being frumpy, and the detailing around the neck gives it an attractive, interesting touch. Very glad I bought it!
