Great casual work top!

Great top for work, does run a little small, order a size up if you don't want it to be so form fitting

Runs small

I'm usually a size 4 or 6 but the size 6 was too small, especially around the mid-section, which was unflattering, and with the white color was very unforgiving on my belly fat so I didn't wear it. Apart from that, as usual with Theory, this is a great quality top and would be perfect for work. If you have some upper body curves and trying to look to slimmer, it may not be the best top.

So small

I'm typically a size 6 and rented this shirt in a medium. The shirt was so tight around the stomach area that i could not wear it. Maybe size up two sizes? The fabric and creamy color are so beautiful though! I might try again with a large!

Way too small

I have several Theory tops in a small, but this fit like it was two sizes too small. My bust was about to pop, but the arms and everything else were too small too. 5'9" 135lbs 34DD.

Great shirt, but size up!

Nicely-constructed, form-fitting top. Glad I followed the advice of fellow RTR'ers & sized up to a medium otherwise I would not have been able to wear it (or breathe)!

Solid work top

Touch small in the shoulders but not enough to size up for me. Love the darting, very fitted but still professional. Not a stunner but a solid work top nonetheless.

Not spectacular

Fine for a winter shirt, it's very very thick material, not great in the heat. Looks odd with skirts because there is a seam at the natural waist under the arms. Followed advice and sized up, medium fit like a glove around the midsection, and I have a 29 inch waist. More yellow beige than the pictures show. Not my favorite. Felt dowdy wearing it.

Just meh

This was a little oddly fitted - too tight in the torso but okay elsewhere - and not very flattering overall.

I didn't read the reviews, but should have! This was way too tight around the midsection. Super unflattering.

Simple, sleek, sophisticated

Thick fabric, form fitting, definitely important to get size and pants right. It will show everything underneath on the waist.

Designed for a petite woman with narrow shoulders

I sized up and this top was still way too small. As you can see in the picture, it pulled at the waist in a very unflattering way and fit too tight in the shoulders. The material was also very different from what I expected: it was sort of a thin canvas, not nearly as professional as I had hoped. I wasn't too disappointed that it didn't fit. I would pass on this too unless you are very slender and petite with narrow shoulders, and even then I might pass on it anyway.

Top runs tight on the chest size up if you have a large bust

I'm a 32DD and normally I wear a small/extra small due to my waist size. I needed a medium in this to feel comfortable. Princess zipper in the back (pretty easy to get up by yourself). I lined and not overly hot. It's very cream/tan, not white.

I wear S or XS in tops and the M was almost too tight.

The fabric was nice and thick--held it's shape and held you in which I liked. It was almost a little too tight, in the arms and waist, but I loved the way it looked.

Sophisticated, well constructed top but runs small.

Fabric is quite stretchy but it definitely runs small. I typically take a size small and the medium was borderline too snug on me. Top does have very nice lines and is simple yet sophisticated.

should have listened

Should have listened to other reviews. This shirt runs oddly small. Got a small, which I could zip up, but was tight all over. I could tell that even if I sized up to medium, it would still be tight. Returned it and never wore.

A beautiful basic piece!

I like the structure and shape of this top! It's a really nice staple piece because it can go with nearly any bottoms-skirts, pants, ect. I have really muscular arms/shoulders so the sleeves were a bit tight on me but the fabric overall has some stretch to it which is nice, and makes it very comfortable to wear. The color was nice too, a nice neutral off white/cream. I usually wear a small, got a M and felt it was a bit snug but I also realize that's pretty common among designer clothing brands. I probably would have purchased it but the bust darts hit me too low and didn't look flattering. In summary-nice piece, looks good, goes with anything, wears comfortably!

Way too tight

I rented this in an XS based on my experience with Theory and the fact that I'm almost always an XS in tops. This shirt was way too tight - across the chest, in the waist, basically everywhere - and did not have the structured look as displayed in the model photo.
