I love this top! It's light weight cotton, pretty print, and a base colour that doesn't wash me out (I'm super pale). It's a woven fabric - not a knit, and there is zero stretch. The fabric drapes nicely in the back which hides any back fat bulges. I always wear a cotton stretch tank under all my tops so I never noticed if it was see through. The neck line is not too low that it shows anything - barely the top of the undershirt. Sleeves are a perfect length (I'm 5'7) and the hem hits at the hip just above the crotch (I am small busted and have an average length torso). I can see why this top wouldn't work for some due to the lack of stretch, but it's exactly what I was looking for in a pretty - almost springy - long sleeved blouse. Looks great with a very dark wash blue jean with a boot or flare cut. I would buy it again in another print!
