Contrast trim Breton top has great fabric, odd fit
I bought this top in XL (I wear that or L, never sure until I try it on) and found it overall a bit large on me. I would exchange it, however, the sleeves are hugely wide and flap on me all the way down to my wrists. I can't imagine anyone needing that much fabric. My arms are probably on the slim side of medium, but they're not slim or especially toned. I could pinch 2" of fabric! They don't taper at all at the wrists. Other than that, the fabric is really nice and medium thickness, the stripes and contrasting trim colors are distinctive, and the tee is just long enough. The neckline is kind of stiff because of the contrast color fabric sewn on -- it's 2 layers thick -- so where the neckline meets the shoulders is a bit stiff and "epaulette" looking. No biggie, as long as the shoulders fit you well. I'd really like this top if the arms were slimmer. If yours are on the chubbier side, or you want quite a loose fit, you may love this top.
