Comfy, But Defective
I'm 5'4" with a 35" bust (32DDD or 28F European), 27" waist. I ordered an XS and it fits fine (it's not skin tight anywhere and has a nice fitted fit, and its not too long or short), BUT I want more room in the chest so am exchanging for a S. I just hope the arms aren't too big/long since the arms on the XS were already perfect. The arms do fit like dormer sleeves ("bat sleeves") on most of us women, but that's OK with me since I have athletic/broad shoulders and its flattering.
The tri-blend fabric does tend to cling somewhat, especially around the "back fat" region which is partially why I want it to be a size bigger.
Compared to the unisex poly-cotton version in XS, this tri-blend felt just a bit roomier/more forgiving in the chest though--not sure if its the material or if its actually a little bigger.
I'll be exchanging both for Smalls.
AND be sure to carefully check over tri-blend shirts--this is the second shirt of tri-blend material that has arrived with a hole. I almost didnt see it as I was wearing a dark undershirt that closely matched this shirts color when trying on. I was going to exchange for a different size anyway, but just be aware.
All that said, I love plain Raglan/Basbeall Tees (they're hard to find) and both the tri-blend and poly-cotton AA unisex versions are some of the best fitting ones I've tried on.
