Try it yourself
I purchased this tunic when they first came out. I loved it so much I immediately purchased two more. And then another two... I love them so much I continue to buy more! I am a pretty normal sized woman. I'm 5'6", weight 125lbs. and typically wear size 6-8. I purchased size Med. and I have never had a problem with the arms being too tight. The length is perfect. They go with everything from jeans to leggings. They are my most favorite 'grab for' shirts!
In spite of what other reviewers said, the fit of this shirt was perfect (though I took other's advice to size down) in an extra small. I have thin arms so I did not have any problem with the fit in that area and actually prefer it being less baggy in the arms. The color (Bordeaux) was pretty but I found it to be a bit flimsy for the price. Because I loved the fit and color I kept it but again the material is a bit flimsy to warrant the price.
Serious Fit Issues
Despite reading the review about fit issues, I loved this top so much I took a chance on it anyway. Bad idea. The arms are too tight to be comfortable, it's tight in the bust, and the bottom looks like a maternity top. I don't know how tall that model is, but it seemed way shorter on me. (I'm 5'9" size 10 and I bought a large.) Looks great on the model, though!!
I read the reviews and ordered a size smaller than I wear. I ordered a medium. I couldn't even get my arms in it. Sent it back. I would have to have xxl to wear just to get my arms in it. Very disappointed.
I ordered 1 size down as recommended by previous reviewers and glad I did. I would've given 5 stars had it run true to size ... This is a wonderful tee particularly worn over leggings and is very flattering for those with a long, slim build ... The appearance can be easily changed by using various tank top colors underneath.
I am not sure if I got a defective one or what, but I found the sleeves on this items very very constricting and the arm holes are cut very high and narrow. I am usually a size small or medium. Because of reviews I ordered the small and while it fit BEAUTIFULLY every else it constricts so much that it is not comfortable at all to wear. I am very hesitant to reorder in a medium but I like so much else about it that I guess I will give it try. The green is a beautiful color !
portland , or
I debated about ordering this, but went ahead and got it in black. The fit is so flattering, I'm going to order the blue. I am a 5ft 6, size 12, 38C bust and ordered a medium. The fit is close, not clingy, and just long enough to cover my butt. I got a pink tank that peeks out around the neckline. I think if i had ordered a large, it would look more like the (blue) picture, which I don't think would be that flattering on me.. The closer fit works great with this top.
Nice but fragile
Much as I love this tee (it's really a very thin sweater), it has one major flaw. The fabric is incredibly thin and fragile. The first time I wore the shirt, my cat jumped up on my lap and made himself comfortable. The next morning I realized there were about a dozen holes -- not pulls but holes -- where the cat had settled. I'm guessing he was kneading, although apparently not hard enough for me to notice. For a casual piece it's pretty fragile.
Perfect Saturday Style
Love this! I recently wore it over a white tank with skinny jeans and received tons of compliments. It's a great, stylish addition to my wardrobe yet super comfy. The quality of the material is just what one expects from The Territory Ahead.
Great top. It's definitely a keeper. I'm normally a medium, but due to the previous comments, I purchased the small. Fits great! I'd buy this in other colors if they were available!
I got the small and love it
I am 5'9"" and 144 pounds. I read reviews and decided to order the SMALL. Glad I did. It fits large and blousey.
