Wore this with black high-waisted jeans (also from Next), leopard print ankle boots, a black leather jacket and long earrings for a casual pub date with someone I wanted to impress. I’m between a 10-12 (probably more like a 10 or 38 European size) and it was fine in a 12, but I do prefer a bit of extra space. If you’re in between size 10-12 like me you may prefer the 10 if you like more tight fitting tops. I don’t like tops too tight, as have broad shoulders. I did have a little spare fabric around the waist/hips but not noticeably so. I liked the fit on my chest and arms in the 12. I’m 5.8 tall, small-busted with long, slim arms. I’d say it was true to size, possibly a little less generous than some UK brands. It is quite a delicate fabric and it caught a bit the first time I wore it out (I wasn’t being careful though) so I don’t think it will last very long, but the quality was good for the price, it fit nicely and looked elegant, classy, sexy and timeless. I liked the subtle puff detail on the shoulders too. I’d definitely buy this top again.
