Great style for those with hips
I bought this in-store, and it's a rare find because this style is designed to look great on those of us who are larger proportionally through the hips than the bust. Side gathers snug it in a bit at the waist but allow it to flow over hips. Mine (in 3X) is longer than the 29" listed here, more like 33" which is good because it covers what it needs to cover. Inexplicably, mine is 100% rayon, NOT polyester as listed, which I am glad about because this fabric breathes. Although it isn't tight, the buttons are spaced a bit too far apart and because the fabric drapes so easily the front seems like it may have a tendency to gap. I may fix this by tacking the front closed and just pull the top on over my head. Overall, a very nice style that I hope will be offered in rayon, at this longer 33-34" length, in more colors. A good buy.

I had a lot of compliments on this blouse and the color and fit was just right. The only thing I would change, would be to shorten the side strings.
