Beautiful blouse! The size 8 was a little too small for me - for this garment, the measurements on the chart are almost exactly what the blouse is so don't order your exact body measurements unless you want it skin tight. I ordered the next size up and have a friend interested in this size 8. Thank you so much!

Amazing dress, love the style, fabric and feel of it. Loose in the top, I don't fill out the boob area enough. Other than that it's wicked. I will definitely buy from here again :)
