I am 5' 1". I weigh 160 pounds. My bust is 42". My waist is 37". My hips are 43". I have a short torso. I am in between a size medium and large (size 8-10). I purchased this top in a size medium. It fit big on me. The back, hemline portion, hit the center of my thighs. This is unusual, as most of my pieces ordered are in the size medium. So, I'm not sure if it was defected, as far as sizing? However, Santina was a HUGE help in exchanging the size medium to a size small. And when I received the size small...WOW, it was such a better fit for me. Thanks so much Santina!
