    Great color and lightweight fabric for Southern California heat in sumer. However, the neckline is so low that the top of my bra showed, so I tried double-sided tape on straps and bra cup. It just stayed low, but with puckers.
    I am 5'1", 98-100 pounds.

        Very lightweight and cool summer top. Love the pale aqua. As with other Boden tops, it has a little special style in the way it fits. Very flattering neckline.

              I occasionally size up in Boden's stretchy tops because I'm tall and try to get more length, if I can get away with it. For instance, I have a Boden tank top in size 6, instead of my usual 2 or 4, and it fits great because it's so stretchy. So I bought this vest in size 6 too. Mistake. The fabric was soft and lovely but not as stretchy as I expected, so the top was way too big. I had to send it back and now they don't have my size anymore.

                  This tank top is huge, super low cut. I can't wear it, sending it back and not happy to pay postage for an item that was misrepresented in the photos and description. Boden seems to be all over the place with their sizing, I wish it were more consistent and that they offered more tops that hit mid-chest not very low chest.

                  Length hit me too low on the hip (3-4" lower than the model and I have a long torso). Overall, it's cut very straight. I tried the navy and white in the US6 (34D/138#). The white is very sheer but for those that do not mind it will be okay with a nude bra.

                    This is a very simple tank. I'd say it's overpriced at full price but would be a good buy on sale. It runs big, in my opinion.

                      I got two of these and I love them! They can be worn alone with jeans or shorts for a super casual day or with a pair of Boden's awesome bistro pants and a cropped cashmere sweater for a super classy but comfy look.

                      A little too gauzy and baggy. I could have sized down, but that wouldn't have solved the gauzy problem. I'm afraid this ones going back.

                        I ordered this top in my usual size 4, and it was way too big! Like the reviewer above, I was really looking forward to this top and now the smaller size is sold out anyhow. Not sure if I will try to wash it, dry it and shrink it, or return it. Too bad. I recently ordered two other sleeveless tops and I am hoping I don't run into the same problem. It does seem sizing is a bit off this season with Boden. Of course this does not mean that my addiction to Boden is over!
