I purchased this top in Grey & White, Size M. It's become my absolute #1 favorite dress top! I live in the Phoenix, AZ area and in case you haven't heard, the summers here are brutal! Accordingly, it's generally considered appropriate to wear sleeveless tops in a professional business setting during the hottest months. This top is my go-to summer staple. It pairs beautifully with pencil skirts, dress pants, skinny jeans, and even shorts.
The best aspect of this top is the fit. I usually wear a size 4 and have a curvy body type (busty with a smaller waist). It's challenging to find tops that are business appropriate yet flattering. Most are either too revealing (show waaaaaay too much cleavage) or look sloppy (since they flare out as a result of my chest size). The Crochet Lace Overlay Top fits like a charm- It creates a smooth, consistent silhouette. It's form fitting yet not tight. You can't see down my shirt when I bend over.
Another thing I adore about this top: It's NOT transparent like so many shirts available out there; in other words, it doesn't show your bra or belly button outline and doesn't require an undershirt.
In regards to laundering, this top fares well. It's far less delicate than it looks. Typically, I wash it on a delicate cycle and then air dry if. However, my husband threw it in the dryer accidentally a couple of times and it came out undamaged. (Lucky for him, LOL!)
After buying my first Patty Boutik shirt last year, I instantly became a loyal fan of this brand. It's like they're designed for women with my body type! The quality is incredible... Every garment I own by Patty Boutik has turned out to be amazing. They're made from good material, the stitching is phenomenal, and the designs are well thought out. I've told all my friends about Patty because I believe in the brand.
I also like how they use the same model for all of their product images. Although our body types are a little different (I have a bigger chest and probably have about 10 Lbs on her) this helps me better predict how garments will fit me. Gotta love consistency!
Note to the company: Please Patty, design more shirts like this! I suggest the same cut, just mix it up with different colors and lace or crochet patterns! I promise I'll buy one of each! :-)
