This top looked really cute, versatile and promising. Unfortunately, the fit was very strange. The sleeves were too tight; however, the bust was nearly baggy and the neckline gaped, exposing far too much of my bra. So, it was too big in some places and too small in others, which unfortunately kept me from exchanging it for another size.

My least Favorite top
This top is really wide in the shoulders and exposes your bra straps. The material is very "slippery" and won't stay put on my pants. This top always slides up and I'm constantly pulling it down. The design is really cute and even though I'm too lazy to send it back, I won't be wearing it very often.

Do Not Hesitate with This Blouse!
This revamped version of the Melrose Mesh Top gets high marks in all areas! The neckline (although some may find it a bit low) is appropriate for work or social wear without a cami underneath. This top can be adjusted to be more or less modest as needed. The shoulders and sleeves are comfortable, but not baggy. The length of this top is great for wearing with pants, jeans or skirts. I vary from size to size in Kiyonna clothes, depending on the style; however, I was able to get this blouse in the same size as my Betsey Ruched Dress. The mesh fabric will be just as wearable this spring and summer as it is for fall and winter, making it a nice investment piece. Based on some previous reviews, I waited for a while before purchasing this blouse. Now I wish I had bought it right away because it is one of the most versatile additions to my wardrobe this season. This top never fails to draw compliments every time I wear it!

Not at all as pictured, very low quality fabric
I ordered this in two colors and was very disappointed. They just arrived yesterday and I sent them back this morning. I liked the look of the mesh shoulders and the bow front; it's a cute style, so I was sad I couldn't make it work. I ordered a 0x, I'm between a 36DD and a 36E and there were at least 3 inches of extra fabric bunching up around the bust. I was so confused that I looked up one of the model's measurements and my bust is about 3 inches bigger than hers, so I can't understand where all this extra fabric is coming from; it must be pinned on the model. The waist fit fine, but the material is very thin and unforgiving; also felt/looked very cheap. My husband compared the black top to the type of fabric you'd find on a children's Halloween costume. It is extremely itchy and rough. I've tried a few items from Kiyonna now and I have to say overall it's hit or miss. Some pieces are absolutely lovely and worth the cost, other pieces look like they can't even be from the same retailer. This piece falls into the latter category and even if it fit properly I can't say the price is reasonable due to the fabric. As a side note, I think return shipping should be free...especially in the plus size market. Getting a good fit is hard and if you have consistency issues(as Kiyonna does, judging from the other reviews), as a company you should own that and not have the customer pay for your mistakes. Having to spend an additional $10 and losing the money I paid for shipping was a little hard to swallow.

Gorgeous, but way too low cut
I love this top. The fabric (polka-dot), the fit, the style, but WOW was it low cut. So low cut it showed the cups and center of my bra. I checked every photo on this site and on no one was it as low cut as it was on me. Tried adjusting the tie/bow, tried adjusting how it sat on my shoulders, no dice. It's so fitted there's no way to wear it with a tank and honestly, I think it ruined the look to do so. Going back. Really, really disappointed.
