(MINUS THE) LEATHER PEPLUM TOP
As previous reviewers have stated, the fit of this top is all out of wack! The medium was too small and the large was way too big on the shoulders and on the sides. But I loved the idea of this top so much that I took it to a seamstress to see if she could tweak it for a good fit. She was able to take in the seam on the shoulders and down the side for $35 and now the top fits like a glove! It was such a unique top that I thought it was worth spending the extra $ on altering. If you really love this top, buy it and simply have it altered! Can't wait to rock it out with a pair of boyfriend jeans, cage sandals and silver/black accessories.

Sexy look, horrible fit
I LOVE this top...I wanted so badly to make it work. Unfortunately the fit is too small in some spots and fine in others. I am always an XS at Express...5'4, 115, 34A cup, so not a big girl. The XS was too tight in the chest even for me with a normal bra on...perfect everywhere else. The S was fine in the chest, baggy in the waist. Getting out of it is a joke...pretty much every one in the store was ripped at the zipper and it's easy to see why. Express, try again! If it fit right it would be amazing!

Almost perfect peplum
This shirt is very cute. However, the fit is not so great. I ordered this in a small and although it seems true to size,(a medium would be way to big) i had issues. First of all, you need extra hands for sure to zip it up. Dont think this is a task you can do by yourself. Another issue is that it is very tight in the bust which can leave you "busting" out at the sides. I see what the others are saying about the waist being a little bigger but I dont think its enough to really complain about. If it were a little snugger than the flare would stick out to far due to the material. If I can find a decent bra to fit the unnatural sleeve area, I will keep the shirt because after all, it is quite cute.

Order a size (maybe 2) up
This is an amazing top but it definitely runs small. If it was true to size, I would have given it 4 stars.
I am a 34DD and wear either medium or large tops depending on the cut. I bought a few peplum tops around Thanksgiving, went ahead and got a large, but now that the holiday weight is gone they are big so I figured that I would just get this top in a medium.
It was difficult to get on and almost impossible to slide over my boobs. Could not zip it up once it was on so I decided to take it off and just go get the next size up. No big deal right?
The only problem was that I had the hardest time getting it off and spent about 15 minutes hopping around my room while I tried to shimmy it off. I was LITERALLY gasping for air by the time I was done.
If you have small boobs and small shoulders then you'll probably be fine sticking with your normal size but if you have any curves AT ALL then definitely do yourself a favor and just get the next size up.
Loved this top and definitely plan on exchanging for a large. Let's hope it fits.

gorgeous but runs really small
i am so mad because I ordered this online as it was not in store in a Medium as I would be in all peplum tops and it was too small and now the Large is sold out. It is absolutely gorgeous, the fit sexy, the fabric not cheap at all, and lined and excellent quality. But I had to return the medium and am crossing my fingers Express re orders it and I can eventually get a Large. I am usually a small in their dresses (sometimes a Medium) but as I am a 36 D bust I needed the large to have it zip all the way up.
