A shapely peplum top has a ladylike grace all its own and looks chic paired with a skirt for a pretty take on two-piece dressing — try our Lotus Knit Skirt , for example. With a graceful neck and flattering princess seams, the top walks the line between retro and refined. Slight gathering at the back waist for a little give. Sleeveless. Hip length. Midweight cotton/rayon/spandex jersey offers a smooth fit. Imported.
I was delighted to receive this top. It is not really a typical peplum (a look I don't much care for due to its less sophisticated look, in my opinion) but this does not puff out at the stomach and keeps its more sleek but comfortable shape. The neckline is great for a sleeveless top both on its own and with sweaters and jackets in the office and beyond. I did size down one size and it was perfect.
I love the color of this top! I bought it in the aqua. The material is nice and light, but not see through at all, and it washes well. The length of this top is nice and the peplum falls at just the right place for me - I am long waisted. HOWEVER, the fit under the arms is quite large. I do not mean that the underarm dips too low, but there is just too much material for a small busted person like myself. This has never happened to me with any other GH purchase before. I will keep the top and have it fixed because it was such a good deal. I am 5'8" and purchased the medium.
Review 3 for Sleeveless Peplum Top

Really cute top but seems to run large. I generally wear a L in all Garnet Hill but I bought this top in Black, Large and it is huge. It would be so much cuter if it was fitted as shown on the model. Unfortunately they no longer have Black, Sz Medium so I can't even exchange. Bummer. I'd suggest sizing down before ordering.
