MESH YOKE TEXTURED KNIT SHELL TOP
This top is beautiful but in reading the other reviews I can see where you might have a problem if you are shorter than 5'8"... I'm 5'10" and 135 lbs and this top (size small) fits like it was tailored to me. It's long and slim and fitted but not too tight. I'm pairing it with black skinny pants and booties. It would definitely be too long if you are on the short side.

Much cuter in real life
I love this top. It is perfect for winter. Under a suit jacket, it will look great for work. My only warning is that it is skin tight/stretchy around the stomach area and doesn't really hide much in the way of belly fat. I am 5'10" and about 145 and I got a small and like the way it fits.

Looks classy, fits horribly
The style is great, and it has a more structured fit than most express tops, but the armholes are much too big and the fit around the hips and middle does not look the same as it does online. It looks awkward. It was returned. It is definitely not a "curve-loving shape".

I agree, it is a bit long. You might want to tuck it in and not use it like on the picture.

Cute, but fits weird.
I love the sophisticated-meets-sexy blend of tweed and fine mesh in this top, but the fit is sort of strange. It is very tight, but also very long so it gets weird around the hips and looks nothing like it does on the model (unless your stomach is concave and your hips are straight on down).
I'm self-conscious about my tummy so I would not wear this shirt with pants, but it looks wonderful and professional under a loose sweater and tucked into a pencil skirt (and still cute enough to grab drinks in after work).
For reference, I am 5'4, 137 lbs, 34D and got the size small (what I usually wear in express tops). When I tried on the medium to try to get a slightly looser fit, it wasn't successful. Too loose in the chest and arm holes, but still fitted around the hips. Definitely must try this top on before committing.
