Cleavage for days

Pictures don't do this shirt justice. It is a very structured shirt so it's not soft but it's gorgeous

Perfect for date night

This is an amazing cut! I just wore a nude bra and the lace covered the bra. It runs large in the waist.

Difficult to wear

I really wanted to like this top and the style is really nice! But it's impossible to wear the shirt with any kind of bra (regular, strapless or stick on bra), since the neck is so low. You could go bra-less...but the chest is so big and gapes out that you'll probably flash anyone sitting next to you! So disappointing :(

Beautiful in picks but not on me.

The shoulders looked wide. Needed to be more fitted in the armpit area.

Not as nice as I was expecting

I was expecting something a bit more- this top, while cute on, looks just like any top I could get for a fraction of the price. It's made of a thick cotton that almost feels like a linen and as such wrinkles easily. The lace also was not as nice as I was expecting. I couldn't wear this top however because it was so low cut- it was impossible to wear with a bra and going bra less isn't an option for me (D cup size). It also ran rather short on me (I'm 5'9")- I could have made it work with a camisole underneath but that takes away the cuteness of it. If you're looking for a shorter top and can get away without a bra, this top would probably be good.

Beautiful top

Fits small/snug around waist. Fabric didn't have much give. Loved the idea but I am not built to fit this style top. I have broad shoulders and am short so proportional it wasn't for me.

Not wearable for small chests

Warning for small chested girls- This top is beautiful but the plunge can't be worn with a bra. This is usually ok for my flat chest - don't need a lot of support- but in this case the blouse gapes open and reveals too much. I wasn't able to wear it. Dress tape might have helped but I didn't want to be self conscious or worried about it all night.

So cute and made the girls look great!

I loved this top! It's super sexy and flattering but you need to wear with high waisted jeans because it's on the shorter side.

The lace was beautiful

The fit was a little large for me except in the bust area. I received many compliments on this blouse and wore it 3 times. Would love to own it but it is a little out of my price range even with the discount.

Nothing I didn't wear the top because of the fit.

Cute top but it didn't fit quite right. It is definitely meant for someone with a little bit larger breasts as I wasn't able to fill the top out.

Very pretty top. Extremely low cut but that worked for the event I rented it for.

Runs large. I would definitely size down to get the waist fitted as shown in the picture.

Bust is too big

This top is best suited for someone with a C cup or larger. I'm an A cup and even when I wore it with a push up bra, the chest was still gaping open and I was probably flashing people half the time. The lace work is really nice though.

Stylist Review

I love this sexy shirt by A.L.C! Running true to size with no stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and is considered a fit and flare around the waist. It works for all cup sizes. You are able to wear a standard bra with this shirt. This a great date night shirt that can be paired with fun heels!

Very odd fit, the shirt is very short and puffs out in the front showing midriff. And I have a short torso so it was surprising.

Just another RTR day at the office

This shirt is cute but as others have noted be prepared for the neck to go to your waist. I was not about to show that much skin at work so I wore it with a black tank top underneath and it was fine. The shoulders are sort of strange - they are built sloping down so when you lift your arms the whole shirt is pulled up. And not pulled up a little but a lot. The specific shirt I received was pretty worn and the lace seems to have lost some of its shape. It was fine; not a stunner but good enough for something different for a day.

It's very unique! Stunning.

It is beyond plunging ... needed to pin it but was able to wear a bra as I have a large chest. A little out of my comfort zone but felt sexy.

Cute top with plunging neckline

This top was sexy and casual. It was fun and showed off the best parts of your body. I feel like it could be flattering for all body types. Showed a bit more of my chest than I assumed, so if you're uncomfortable with your ta-tas being out, this probably is not the shirt for you! Paired with high waisted jeans and black boots, I had so many compliments! This size was a bit worn, so was more gray than black, but adorable!
