I wasn't sure about this shirt given some of the reviews about the blue striped version of this top with its high neck buttons, but - like the blue striped version - I find it surprisingly flattering! It has a great overall fit and makes me look slim and shapely, rather than heavy and busty. I find this one runs slightly smaller than the blue striped version and even though I fluctuate between a 12 RC and 12 SC, I definitely need the 12 SC - I think the double layer of fabric makes it a closer fit. Bravissimo, please can we have some similar styled shirts next year, ideally with a very modest folded back V neck (NOT low cut please!!) and a capped sleeve rather than the frilly bits? A bright red colour would be a nice change too.
