Silk racer tank in antique floral (SP14, $110 or $118) runs regular 00-16 (A3805), petite 00-12 (A3860) & tall 2-14 (A3861). The color is called midnight ocean (MOC). 100% silk, 100% poly lining. It’s currently $79.99 in-store and online.
Size 6 – It looks a little wide on the hanger, but don’t let that cool you. I tried the 4 on and couldn’t get iover my chest. TTS, or the larger of your J Crew sizes. Boo on the poly lining. It didn’t feel silky or try to masquerade as silk. It felt ok, but I could tell it was poly.
I think it would’ve benefitted from a lining that could hug the body a little. I felt like the tank stuck out a little between my chest and stomach. I wasn’t liking it at first, but I came back to it later and felt better about it. Also, once I had the button clapsed in the back, I got the correct fit. there are bra keeps. I didn’t test them out, so I don’t know if a regular bra will still work or if you’ll benefit more from a racer or other type of convertible bra.
I kind felt like it was a little long, but I don’t think I’d like the petite length. If you have a short torso and/or usually take petite, you might prefer that in this top.
Another close-up of the print. I like florals, but rarely wear them. I think this one is so pretty. I think it’s the blues and those big, creme roses. The brown leaves are an interesting contrast and a twist, instead of green.
Keyhole back w/a covered button.
Merino silk panel sweater in antique floral (A1921, $118) runs XXS – XL. The color is called heather sandstone (HSA). It’s currently $89.99 in-store. 100% merino wool, 100% silk front panel, 100% poly lining.
Size S – It’s described online as a relaxed fit. I’d agree. If I were a few lbs thinner, I would’ve tried an XS to be sure. It’s a little loose in the arms and in the body, but I like the fit of the S. I think it would get too tight in the arms. Check it out on my fit twin, Audreybella.
