This shirt will swallow you

Is nice that I was the first one to rent this too (tag was still attached); however, the small is way too big that is not just the front length but also the back (I understand the back is suppose to be long) is long. Sadly can't wear it even once.

Definitely keeping!

This top is fabulous. It's even more beautiful in person than in pictures. The colors are vibrant, the top itself is soft and flowy and I really felt like a million bucks in it. Paired it with some fun Anthropologie earrings and black heels. Definitely buying this one!

Very loose fit top

Very large and flowy fit, needs to be worn with a tight skirt or leggings. Beautiful print!

Giant, pretty

This kind of exemplifies my love/hate with unlimited. It's giant, tent like, and swingy and not a silhouette I would normally try - but it turned out great. Surprisingly flattering. The colors are lovely and I got to swoop around in my floaty blouse like an art teacher. I had fun. Loved it. Tried something new, fashion wise, and it paid off. On the hate side, the top button was gone, so I had to make do all day with dress tape, which definitely threw the fit off. Plus the rest of the buttons didn't match the picture and were sewn on super sloppy. Why damage such a nice item with rushed, botched mending and inspections? Also worth noting that this will probably work through early third trimester, if you're pregnant.

Burst of colour in an artsy shirt.

Cute top super comfy. A little wide in the collar. More artsy looking than I typically wear. I felt like a renaissance painter it was very blousy. That being said it will hide a multitude of sins or look like you're hiding a pregnancy. Fine for a one time rental not likely a repeat offender in my closet.

Pregnancy friendly

Super flowy top works great for all stages of pregnancy. I didn't love the cuffs in the sleeves or the neck collar. Pattern and flowiness made up for it. Super comfy!

Nice style and colors, runs way too large

I liked the style and colors in this top, very flowy and pretty. I didn't wear because it's massive. Even if it's supposed to be the style, it's overboard. It's also super long on top of being loose, almost seemed like a dress. I'm usually a M or L and I ordered a small and it was still huge.

Much more flowy than it looked in the photo, even in a small. Not flattering on me.

Runs very large

I expected a big, flowy shirt but this was a little ridiculous. Maybe because of the blousey sleeves as well it felt more like something fit for a pirate and less like an oversized shirt that would pair well woth leggings. Fabric was nice but I could not wear this.

I love this top. I may actually purchase it. It was effortless and comfortable. Anyone with unlimited, give this shirt a whirl.

Fun, flowy top!

Very easygoing and comfortable top. I got this to wear to work through Unlimited and paired it with green pants and beige Chelseas. I got a number of compliments throughout the day!

Free people

I wanted so badly to love this top, but can't. So it's free people, you know it's guna be roomy & verrry flowy, but legit, I put it on and thought I looked like Mimi fromThe Drew Carey Show. It was rough. Then I added a little belt, liquid leggings & knee high black boots. It was actually so cute got tons of compliments. IF you are thinking about renting, do it, just order 2 sizes smaller.

Comfy, oversized

I rented a medium instead of a small since i just had a baby two weeks ago- it is huge. Definitely recommend sizing down, but i like the pattern. The fabric is not as nice as the picture looked though.

Perfect for the nursing mamas out there!

Runs large so size down. Rented this 3 weeks post partum and it really helped me feel like I could present myself to society again. All you moms out there know what I mean. Those first few weeks after giving birth are really challenging, with the lack of sleep and feeling like a feeding machine and all. Plus, you're in that weird, in-between stage where your maternity clothes are too big but your pre-pregnancy clothes are still too small (or, like me, you dare not try them yet so as not to be disappointed). I finally got tired of wearing pajamas all day and found this blouse to rent, which is fashion-forward and functional for nursing since it's a button down. It's also loose enough to hide my post-baby belly and the fabric is soft enough to be comfy. Truth is, I only wore this blouse to go to the grocery store, but damn did it feel nice to wear real clothes again and get out of the house! This blouse made me feel so good that it's probably worth buying since I have about 11 more months or so of breastfeeding ahead of me. FYI, actual nursing clothes are NOT this cute.

Pregnancy friendly but size down!

I'm currently 26 weeks pregnant with twins and I ordered a medium (was actually on the fence about ordering a large!) and literally another person could fit in this with me. It almost looked like a short baby doll dress. The pattern is cute and if it fit, I think it would have looked nice, but it was just way too big...even with me being pregnant. I might try it again in a small or even XS which were my pre pregnancy sizes because the length is good for covering the belly and it's flowy enough that there should be enough room. And obviously if you're not pregnant, be sure to go a size down from usual!

VERY oversized but loved it!

It is very oversized! I am saying it runs large, but I also think it is intentional that it is very oversized. I wore the large, and typically wear either a L or XL. I think I would have no problem fit into the small, but then it just wouldn't have been the look this shirt is going for. So, if you're between sizes, definitely order down, but regardless just know that this shirt is VERY oversized on purpose and if that isn't what you're looking for then don't order it. I got multiple compliments on it while wearing it!

Very flowy

When I first put this shirt on, I thought it looked horrible. It is oversized and extremely flowy. Although the shirt was brand new, it was missing a button. Given that, and that I thought it looked pretty bad buttoned, I decided to wear this shirt more like a jacket or kimono. The print is beautiful - I loved the colors. Even though I felt somewhat uncomfortable in it, I got a ton of compliments! At the end of the day, I was glad I wore it, but I probably would not wear this shirt again (at least not in this size).

Love this top!

Free People tends to run a little large for me and I'm usually a small so I got a XS and it was perfect! Lots of compliments when I wore it out to dinner with a friend and to work.

Effortless/Chic!

I ordered the small, oversized fit. I think I could have also worn the XS. I wore this with my Spanx leather leggings! Perfect for a nice dinner/night out! Highly recommend

I love this shirt! It makes me feel really pretty and covers all the parts I don't like.

The large was a little bit big on me but I actually like the way it fits this way. The model photo shows a higher neck but mine show more of my collar bone and cleavage which I liked. It's also incredibly comfortable!

Everyday fun.

Definitely on the larger side but it's designed to be. For my long torso, I loved the length, but I can imagine on most people it can almost be a mini dress. Received lots of compliments. Ended up finding this top on sale at Macy's for cheaper and bought it because I loved it so much. The quality was a bit lack, considering it was missing a button on the sleeve and the color did a funny twist, but both were an easy fix.

Comfy, flattering top for everyday

Rented as part of my unlimited order just for an daytime outfit. I wore it with leather leggings, booties and earrings to dress it up for happy hour and I really liked it. Very flowy so I imagine it would be flattering on anyone. Free People tends to run large so size down.

It was kind of forgettable.

This shirt was huge! I felt like I was wearing an over sized nightgown. The print is stunning and the quality is great but the sizing was just too big for me.

This grew on me. I tied it at the waist and that helped make it more flattering. Fun top though.

Billowy top

This top was great; I wore it with the Nicole Miller Black Lace Leggings (also on RTR) and ankle boots to a matinee at the theater. Yes, the fit is huge, as other commenters noted, but it looks like that is how it is supposed to be. It flows nicely when you move, so it is flattering, believe it or not.

comfortable with a great print

I think this is meant to be rather large, flowing, and long, so i'm not sure other reviewers are so overwhelmed by the size. I'm sure, though, you could get away with going a size smaller than your usual size. I have large breasts, so I wore this with a belt to give it more structure and so as to not make me look like a giant beach ba
